Homeopathic and natural remedies for lactose intolerance

Roughly 75% of the world’s population has some degree of lactose intolerance. Homeopathy and natural remedies can help you live better with this condition.

If you cannot freely enjoy dairy products without experiencing some sort of digestive or systemic reaction, you may be
• Lactose intolerant
• Allergic to milk
• Allergic to mold used in the production of blue cheeses like Gorgonzola, Roquefort, and Stilton and not intolerant or allergic to milk itself

It’s important to consult with your homeopath and know for sure. If you are allergic, you will need to avoid the allergen at all times including when people assure you that “it’s just a little bit” and “it can’t possibly hurt you.”

Homeopathic remedies that may be beneficial include
Apis mellifica specifically for allergic reactions
Calcarea carbonica for diarrhea
Magnesium muriaticum for cramping

Other preventative measures
• Read labels carefully so you can avoid milk and dairy products and also lactoserum, milk solids, and whey
• Choose Kosher products labeled K or pareve because they are milk-free
• Use “milks” made from almonds, coconuts, oats, rice, or soy
• Look for lactose-free versions of products like bread, gravy, lunchmeat, margarine, medicines, and protein bars, all of which may contain additives that include lactose
• Remove questionable products from your home
• Speak up at restaurants to find out exactly what you are paying for
• Use a probiotic to restore balance to your intestines

Live well despite lactose intolerance.
