Natural Ways to Deal with Lactose Intolerance

Milk is a common household ingredient around
the world. However, there are hundreds of millions of
people that are not able to process or digest the lactose that is contained in the milk. More than half of the world’s population
has some type of lactose intolerance, though, they may not show symptoms of it. This is caused by lacking a certain enzyme
in their body, called lactase, which is required to digest lactose sugar. Those that suffer from a mild form of lactose
intolerance can manage the symptoms without having to do without dairy or milk. However, they will likely experience mild
indigestion that would normally cause them to consume less dairy less often. Yet, those that have a more prevalent form
of lactose intolerance experience bloating, cramping, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation
and upset stomach. These symptoms typically occur between thirty
minutes to two hours after consuming dairy and milk. Luckily, there are several ways for those
that suffer from lactose intolerance to get relief and strengthen their body’s ability
to process lactose. Some of those remedies include: Consume Lactase Lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency
in lactase, which is necessary to break down lactose. Therefore, adding lactase to your diet can
be very beneficial. This can be purchased in a drug store and
added to your dairy products, such as milk. The lactase powder will digest the sugar even
before you consume it. You can also take a lactase tablet before
or after eating a food that contains lactose. Educate Yourself Many people may be aware that they are lactose
intolerant, but they may not be aware of all the foods that contain lactose, such as salad
dressings, pancakes, candy, soups, and hot dogs. It is important to read food labels and educate
yourself of the ingredients that you are consuming. Know Your Body Every person in the world has some sort of
intolerance to certain foods. Therefore, it is important to know your body
and how your body responds to ingredients. If you have a lactose intolerance, you will
be able to discover what your limit for dairy food is. Perhaps you can have a grilled cheese, but
if you eat it with a glass of milk, that will send your belly over the edge. Remember that you need to know your body the
best and as you learn your limits you can tweak your diet to fit your needs without
making yourself sick. Shrink Your Portions Quite often, if you are only mildly lactose
intolerant, you can control your symptoms by shrinking the size of your dairy portions. Obviously, don’t eat an entire package of
cheese and drink an entire gallon of milk. Instead, consume a small amount of dairy,
which will allow your body to digest the sugar in small amounts rather than in large quantities. Ginger If you are lactose intolerant but you decide
that you would like to have a meal containing dairy, keep ginger by your side. Ginger can settle an uneasy stomach, reduce
cramping and nausea, and help with digestion. You can also get this benefit of ginger from
consuming ginger ale, ginger extract, and pickled ginger. Alternate Nutrient Sources One issue those that have lactose intolerance
suffer from is the inability to get proper nutrients, particularly calcium and Vitamin
D. It will be important to consume calcium-rich foods, such as nuts, seeds, dried fruit, beans,
and leafy greens. Likewise, it is equally important to consume
foods rich in vitamin D, such as fatty fish, beef liver and egg yolks. Kefir Kefir is a milk alternative that does not
contain lactose. Instead, it contains live active cultures,
or probiotics, that help with digestion. This product can even improve your body’s
ability to process lactose better. Chamomile Tea Like ginger, chamomile tea has been widely
used to settle an uneasy stomach. It neutralizes stomach acid, soothes your
mind and body, and helps to relieve any discomfort. Yogurt and Hard Cheese Like Kefir, yogurt and hard cheese contain
live active cultures and lower levels of lactose. The probiotics help your body to break down
the lactose sugars. Milk Substitutes You can find many types of milk substitutes
in the grocery store that do not contain lactose, but still contain essential nutrients that
our body needs. These substitutes include: soy milk, almond
milk, coconut milk and hemp milk. Apple Cider Vinegar Often, those that suffer from a mild form
of lactose intolerance can manage their symptoms by adding apple cider vinegar to their diet. Apple cider vinegar provides the stomach with
a coating to soothe any discomfort and help with digestion. Lactose intolerance isn’t usually dangerous,
but on-going discomfort in your stomach can weaken your ability to fight off harmful toxins. If it continues to bother you, consult with
your doctor for additional treatments. You do not want to put continuous stress on
your body by constantly feeling sick, vomiting, or having diarrhea. If you like the video, give it a thumbs up

  1. Why not just drop off dairy altogether? It's extremely unhealthy and the dairy industry is very unethical. There are tons of substitutes to every kind of dairy product that are much healthier. Most humans are lactose intolerant because the human species is not a baby cow, and therefore, we don't need the cow's milk for anything. We need cows' milk as much as we need dog's or kanguru's milk.

  2. just DON'T CONSUME DAIRY, I don't consume dairy often and my bones are quite strong, just eat leafy greens, and dairy makes you overweight, most humans cant even absorb the calcium from dairy, its just pointless unless its for taste. its for the baby calf.
