The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
a year ago I stopped drinking cow’s milk and eating yogurt. I hoped to improve the congestion problems I had. It was impeding my scuba diving and whenever I got a cold or cough it was frustrating.
I also had sinus problems and permanent gunge for want of a better word.
So a year on how has it been?
I had no idea how I would feel and used to really love a glass of milk. Now I wouldn’t drink one if you paid me. I still have the odd bit of cheese and butter but the milk and yoghurt are gone.
Another crazy benefit has been the disappearance of the chronic Hayfever problems that I had since I was a teenager.
Every summer I had daily antihistamine and even more connection for up to five months. Last year I didn’t have any problems at all. It’s been amazing.
I have nut and soya yogurts and make my own soya yogurt. I’ve still got plenty of calcium in my diet and feel great.
A recent visit to the doctor’s for a chest infection was also less severe than those I’d had in previous years.
Have you ever changed your diet and had unexpected benefits?
