I have issues with cow's milk. In the past, I used to drink cow's milk kefir... love it and love the benefits to my IBS and gut in general. Several years ago, I started having very bad IBS-D (worsened by removal of gallbladder). I found primal and that has helped. Now, I do not drink any cow's milk or kefir and only occasionally have hard cheese.
Yesterday in Whole Foods I found Goat's Milk Kefer and bought some. I had some yesterday and today (about 3 oz each day). So far, so good.
Has anyone else found they could tolerate Goat's Milk when they cannot tolerate cow's milk? I do not have a lactose problem... milk just irritates my digestive tract and gives me diarrhea for days after consuming.
Thanks for sharing your experiences!
Its very possible as some people have found that milk with A1 they are sensitive to and A2 (I might have this backwards) they are not...especially with people that have leaky gut. Goat's milk is all the latter, where cow's milk is all mostly A1 in the US.
