So I'm not enamoured with alternative medicine. One thing they all advised me though was to give up the dairy products, something I've never heard from a conventional doctor.
Having spent the last month and a half with chronic catarrh and a nasty cough, I've decided now is the time to not give up, but to cut down drastically. I know from experience that dairy causes catarrh in me so I'm trusting my experience rather than my GP this time.
Cutting out cheese is no problem. But milk's a different kettle of fish.
Soya milk on my breakfast cereal gives me bad guts. And it's crap in coffee, though better than cow's milk in tea.
Rice milk tastes absolutely foul in coffee and tea. But gorgeous on its own or on cereal.
So my proposal is this...
Rice milk with my breakfast cereal.
Cow's milk with my morning cup of coffee.
And soya milk in my four cups of tea throughout the day.
Wish me luck. And anybody who says "Have you tried goat's milk?" is no friend of mine!
