Namaste Miracle Team,
I would like to share my personal experience on cows and milk. The way cows are treated, even in some ashrams in India is heart-wrenching. Majority of the cows are not happy and after witnessing the pain the cows themselves go through and the way they are treated, I developed an aversion to consumption of dairy. I have consumed dairy all my life and a year ago I limited my consumption of dairy to only A2 milk and small quantity ghee. After a year I still witnessed there was mucus formation and aggravation of sinusitis. An ayurvedic practitioner suggested that I stop consuming milk as milk can generate mucus and suggested to use buttermilk and a spoonful of ghee everyday to help cool the system as my body constitution is more of heat element. Currently I only consume a cup of buttermilk everyday and I don’t take ghee. I too read the page about soul nourishment a few days ago and have been reflecting past couple of days to get over all dairy by using soya milk as a substitute. And using more of natural coolants like tender coconut water and others to keep the body heat in check. I am in the process of experimenting these changes. I would appreciate some insights from Sri and Kira or others who have been following vegan diet for sometime now. What alternatives work best for you or any suggestions.
