3 Facts about cow's milk you need to know
1. Pasteurization of milk destroys beneficial bacteria along with the bad ones and destroys enzymes essential for nutrient absorption.
Milk pasteurization destroys all its phosphatase, which is essential for calcium absorption and calcium works with Vitamin D, is not only available through the sun, but it is an essential nutrient in raw cream.
2. Heating any raw food destroys the active enzymes, so lipase (a unique enzyme in milk and that is needed to complete the digestion of fats) gets thrown away along with many other essential nutrients that pasteurization destroys.
3. It's considered the main cause of allergies in children, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
Milk is also rich in saturated fat and cholesterol. Some studies even relate to diabetes and even osteoporosis, because due to being low in magnesium, leaves the bones absorb calcium.
So, if you're having cow's milk, make sure it is raw and not pasteurized.

Having the flu is always horrible, you feel awful, especially during those first 3 crucial days where the virus is getting stronger.
3 Natural remedies for the flu you need to try
Today I'll give 3 natural remedies for the flu to finally get rid of it!
The flu can leave you dehydrated, especially if have vomiting or diarrhea. So be sure to get enough fluids. Water is fine. So are fruit juices, soda, and electrolyte beverages. You may want to stay away from caffeinated drinks, because caffeine is a diuretic. Herbal tea with honey can soothe a sore throat. If you feel nauseated, try taking small sips of liquids — gulps might cause you to throw up. How can you be sure you’re getting enough fluid? Your urine should be pale yellow, almost colorless.
How about drinking alcohol? No way. When you have the flu, the last thing you want to do is drink alcohol, it makes you sleepy, and flu does that already.
Sip some soup
For generations, caring parents have been serving chicken soup to kids with colds and flu. But was mom right? Possibly. A study published in the journal Chest showed that chicken soup may help with symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections like the flu.
Make a tent
Need a quick way to open clogged airways? Bring a pot of water to a boil and remove it from the heat. Drape a towel over your head, close your eyes, and lean over the water under the “tent,” breathing deeply through your nose for 30 seconds. It is recommended to add a drop or two of peppermint or eucalyptus oil to the water for extra phlegm-busting power. Repeat this as often as necessary to ease congestion.
So there you have! — Try these home natural remedies the next time you get the flu!
