Me and dairy haven’t gotten along in many years. I used to fill the void by downing tons of those Lactaid pills or by eating fake dairy. Eventually I had to add more and more of those pills for it to even be effective. One day I decided that it was ridiculous to take so many pills just to enjoy a little cheese or ice cream so I stopped eating dairy and taking those pills. After going low carb and eventually Paleo my digestion improved by leaps and bounds. It helped tremendously to heal my stomach and while I have a long way to go to completely heal my gut and digestive issues I am now able to handle dairy. I try not to go overboard with it since I still have more healing to do and I’m not ready to test my limits yet, but it’s nice to enjoy some grass fed cheese from time to time.
