Experimenting With The Raw Milk Diet
I've decided to experiment with a Raw Milk Diet. This includes consuming nothing but raw milk (and raw kefir) for an extended period of time. Though for some reason grass-fed raw milk is only a "yellow" on the BP spectrum, it is found throughout history to be one of the most nutritious and healing foods on the planet.
(Note: I am definitely not talking about pasteurized milk from sick, drugged, grain/corn fed cows. That stuff is poison and I don't let it anywhere near my mouth. I'm specifically talking about raw milk from healthy, grass-fed, pastured cows.)
"The Milk Diet" has been used by several doctors in the early 1900's - prior to the invention of pasteurization - to cure a plethora of diseases and ailments, including: inflammation, fever, insomnia, obesity, psoriasis, tuberculosis, hypertension, indigestion, migraines, asthma, liver disorders, nerve irritability, cancer, bad complexion, eczema, dandruff, anemia, constipation, chronic diarrhea, dysentery, hardening of the arteries, appendicitis, arthritis, impotence, gallstones, diabetes, and much more.
There are hundreds of cases of miraculous cures when patients are prescribed nothing but raw milk, water, and rest.

I plan to do this for at least three (3) weeks. I would like to go longer, but I am moving to another state at the end of June so it might be difficult to keep up the diet during my transition. But I will be staying with family and they have access to grass-fed, raw milk. So, I'm guessing that if I simply ask them to pick me up some milk before I arrive, I can continue the "diet" past the three weeks and potentially for about 7-8 weeks.
Fortunately, I have no life-threatening ailments. My goal with this diet is to heal some kind of skin disorder on my scalp (not sure if it is psoriasis or eczema), lose the last 10 lbs of fat covering my chiseled muscles, drastically heal and nourish my gut, detox my body, dramatically boost my energy, improve my sleep, and feel better all-around. Some of this is measurable, some not so much. Either way, I intent to feel amazing (after the detox phase, of course).
My personal protocol will include (nearly) nothing but 4-6 pints of raw milk each day, with as much of it in kefir form as possible (to ramp up the probiotics, enzymes, and B vitamins). I will also be supplementing with vitamin C, liquid vitamin D3, Omega-3's, lipase enzymes, CLA, spirulina, chlorella, moringa, glutamine, arginine, and creatine. (The additional amino acids are to repair the body and build muscle, as I'll be doing bodyweight exercises throughout the "diet.")
I will not be using stevia either. I have recently discovered some theories that point to the hormone disrupting attributes of the plant. (You can view some articles on the subject here.) Just something Iâ€™m experimenting with.
The only exception to the milk and supplements will be some berries in a morning smoothie, simply to cover up the taste of the not-so-palatable powders. Besides that morning â€œSuper Shake,â€ I will live off only raw milk, raw kefir, and some occasional kombucha (more for pleasure and a social outlet than for health benefits, as we know those are somewhat questionable).
I just placed an order for 5 gallons of raw milk; I'll pick it up on Tuesday and will start the diet Wednesday morning.
I will definitely post back in this thread and let you all know how my experience is going!

P.S. I understand the potential risk of raw milk and am willing to take that chance.
When I'm not eating delicious, Bulletproof food, I spend my time reading, listening to podcasts/audiobooks, lifting, traveling, and helping people to:
1.) become a more powerful version of themselves and 2.) create real income online. I have to admit, my life is quite fun!
