The Milk Diet
Welcome to the Milk Diet Site!
One century ago, milk was known as a healing food that cured people of many common diseases. Patients went on exclusive raw milk diets for three weeks or longer and, as a result (according to contemporary authors whose work you will read about on this site), cured many common diseases that ailed them and still plague us 100 years later:
Rheumatoid arthritis, edema, ulcers, indigestion, low thyroid function, congestive heart failure, asthma, hay fever, appendicitis, gallstones, infertility, narcotic habits, anemia, insomnia, migraines, acid stomach, eczema, tuberculosis (in its early stages)
The milk diet became so popular that two practitioners most known for the diet, Dr. Charles Sanford Porter and Bernarr [sic] Macfadden, received correspondence from all over the world from people who wanted advice about going on the milk diet themselves. Both men responded by writing books to help these people put themselves on a milk diet in their own homes, under their own care. These books were way ahead of their time вЂ“ they were early self-help books in the nutrition field long before the self-help genre blossomed.
Charles Sanford Porter in The Milk Diet and Bernarr Macfadden in The Miracle of Milk wrote popular how-to books on curing chronic diseases with milk. Porter and Macfadden even collaborated on a third publication also titled The Miracle of Milk, a rare collection of pamphlets on the milk diet. In these books they answer common questions of their patients and they provide powerful testimonials about the healing power of milk.
On this site you can read about the basics of the milk diet. You can also learn about the diet’s classic works and read and download MacfaddenвЂ™s The Miracle of Milk, free to readers interested in the milk diet. In 2007 we will offer in paperback The Milk Diet Classics, a special reprint of MacfaddenвЂ™s The Miracle of Milk and PorterвЂ™s The Milk Diet.
