The practical how-to of Lindlahr’s methods explained in detail. The scan of this book was generously donated by Grant Campbell, a South African currently studying Naturopathy in England. Grant took strong exception to Lindlahr’s recommendation to drink cow’s milk.
In exchange for providing us with his scan, this library agreed to provide Grant’s statement about using cows milk:
Notes to the Reader by Grant Campbell
Henry Lindlahr’s views on consuming milk, and other dairy products, must be challenged (With all due respect to a great man). Since the publication of this book in 1922 there has been much that has come to light concerning this controversial topic.
It appears that many people do not have the necessary enzymes to break down the lactose in the milk. As infants they did but as they grew older production of this enzyme slowed right down. This tendency appears to be even stronger amongst the darker African, Caribbean, Mauritian races etc. This leads to many secondary difficulties; retarded (slow) digestion, increased putrefaction, increased mucus production (from a product that is already renowned for creating lots of mucus), increased auto immune complaints; allergies, asthma, eczema, osteoporosis, arthritic complains and many more.
Milk also contains growth hormones that give instructions to baby cows bodies to grow; as adult humans these hormones are not only not necessary but downright dangerous. The pasturised, homongenised (highly processed) milk for sale on the shelf today is a far cry from the live untreated milk commonly sold in Lindlahr’s day. Milk is, to all intents and purposes “The very top of the food chain” as far as humans are concerned. The final collection point for the toxins that our society believes it is necessary to use in the mass production of agricultural products and the spill off from the industrial and other sectors.
