Milk for pain relief?!
I discovered something totally amazing the other day. I have been battling a tooth abscess and my mouth has been really sore. I mean really really sore. I don't like taking pain pills, but I discovered something great. I was sitting down drinking my tall glass of cold raw goat milk and noticed that the pain in my mouth got a little better after the first couple of swallows. I then noticed after I held the milk in my mouth for just a second longer before swallowing that the pain relief improved more. Let me tell you by the time I finished slowly drinking my glass of milk my mouth was so relieved. The pain level had diminished tremendously and was down to a tolerable level. It stayed that way for a good couple of hours before the throbbing returned. This is one awesome benefit of drinking raw milk that I absolutely love and would never have believed had I experienced it first hand. So for all those doubting Thomas's that don't believe in the health benefits of raw milk, it really is an amazing food! Blessings from the farm, Kat
