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

Glad you found relief, an abscess is certainly no fun, not at all!

Mike stepped on a goats heat thorn one time(walking barefoot to the garbage can) and his foot was hurting him so and then swelling set in. I put together a poultice of bread, raw milk and plantain and within a few minutes of placing it on the bottom of his foot he had a reduction in pain of 50% and it kept decreasing. I redressed it after 4 hours and by morning( he slept with it wrapped) the pain was gone as well as 90% of the swelling.

Another thing that works good for healing sores and whatnot in the mouth is Iodine, it needs to be food grade from a health food store, garlice also has very high antiseptic and healing qualities.

Praying you stay pain free,

Sorry it's supposed to be goats head thorn.
