Ally from Denver – Milk, Does a Body Good?



This comment comes from Ally Harmon in Denver, CO

This was from our The Backstage Beat’s Facebook page.

Way to go Ally! Well informed and very well written!

Cows that produce NON-organic milk ARE TREATED with antibiotics during the course of their lifetime. Think about a woman who gives birth to a baby..doctors are very strict in regards to what medications a woman can or can’t have because almost ALL prescriptions travel directly through breast milk and thus the child ingests. Cows are no different. Non-organic cows are kept in poor conditions, and farmers are forced to give them antibiotics to keep them “healthy”. Whether the government runs tests or not, those medications are going from the cow into the human that drinks the milk, whether in testable dosages or minuscule amounts that won’t even show up…if one drinks enough of the stuff over time, it builds up in a person’s system.

While the use of antibiotics from is hugely important to the health and safety of one’s milk, what is even more important is this…what are they eating? What is the main food source and where is it coming from? A non-organic milk-producing cow is going to be fed the cheapest food available and will also be fed grain. Cow grain consists of a lot of corn, none of which is tested for molds, all of which comes from government subsidized corn…THIS is what everyone needs to do their research and studying on! Government subsidized corn is genetically modified…which means it is NOT good for you to eat. Eat enough GMO foods over time, and you WILL end up with a depressed immune system and unable to defend against major illnesses like cancer.

As I own livestock, I also have a good understanding of the hay that non-organic cattle are fed. When you go to buy hay, it is listed as either “horse hay” or “cow hay”. No one who owns horses would EVER buy “cow hay” to feed their horses. Why? Because it is unhealthy and could potentially make them sick. Yes, it is cheaper, but usually riddled with mold and weeds. Feed that to your horses and you will be calling the vet soon after for medication to treat them…thus why non-organic cattle are continually fed antibiotics so that they can live through eating the garbage that the cheap farmers feed. Living in harsh conditions and being fed less than favorable foods, cows will also over produce cortisol (a stress hormone) that WILL be released into the milk and into the meat, and thus into your body. Cortisol will also destroy your immune system over time.

Go with a good organic brand of milk and never have to worry about what the cow is eating. Don’t always believe what the government and USDA says…it is NOT gospel…these are the same people that came up with the “food pyramid” and why our country is one of the most unhealthy and fat of any in the world. Don’t take my word for it…do the research. A good place to start? Watch the following 1.5hr documentary about what is REALLY going on behind the scenes of the American food industry…it will make your blood boil.

The Diabetes Dialogue



It was a beautiful Friday afternoon and I was perusing other people’s junk at a garage sale with my special fella when I got the phone call that would change my life. Looking down at the display window, I noted that it was my health care provider and figured they were calling with lab results from just two days ago. I’d needed a refill on my blood pressure pills and the new doctor I’d been assigned wanted to run some lab work to ensure that my medication was still the best fit for me. As it turned out, my blood pressure was great! In fact, it was the lowest it’d been in quite some time so the meds were doing their job!
Yep. Over the phone. While I’m somewhat familiar with diabetes since my mother has had the disease since I was a little girl, everything changes when it’s YOU! Suddenly, my head started spinning. What did this mean for me? Was I going to have to take insulin injections? Was I going to have to use a monitor to check my blood sugar daily? Would I ever get to enjoy pizza again?
For those unfamiliar with this disease, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Type 2 Diabetes says that, “Diabetes occurs when the body fails to make enough insulin, a hormone that helps cells take up sugar for energy and / or the patient has problems responding to the insulin that the body does make. Insulin enables glucose to enter muscle and fat cells, where it can be used as energy and stored for future use in a form called glycogen. Between meals and overnight, the liver produces glucose. Insulin plays a role there by ensuring that the liver produces just the right amount of glucose to maintain normal blood sugar levels.” The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Type 2 Diabetes also says that Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90-95 percent of all cases of diabetes and that 5.2 million Americans who have diabetes don’t even know it.
The doctor that I’d been assigned by the head honchos of my insurance company did a piss poor job of explaining what my course of action was to be and I believe I was in a bit of shock, so the logical questions (ahem, the ones I mentioned several sentences ago) didn’t pop into my head. She didn’t encourage me to call back if I thought of anything. She didn’t take the reins and tell me what I needed to do except to say, “Take your medicine twice a day and call the dietician to schedule an appointment.” The medicine, it turns out, is called Metformin and it’s formulated to help control the blood sugar. It also makes the patient (at least this patient…) feel like absolute poop! I’d been warned that it could give me severe nausea and that I’d become one with my bathroom. Good news though! Those side effects should only last a couple of weeks. Ugh!
Once I shook the cobwebs from my head and realized that…whoa! This is my life we’re talking about here!…I notified my insurance company about the doctor’s blasé way of notifying me about this life altering disease, and her lack of guidance for my future. I still have no idea if I should be conducting daily blood sugar checks or when I need to return for a follow-up visit. I have an appointment with a registered dietician, though they can’t see me for another 2 ½ weeks. Until then, I’m doing my best to make the obvious changes with no sodas or sweets and minimum carbohydrates. I’m in the process of obtaining an endocrinologist, a doctor who specializes in diabetic treatment.
Luckily, my significant other is determined to fight this with me and help me be more than just a statistic. I know that it’s not going to be an easy battle. There are days, I’m sure, when I’m going to try to justify eating what I want or not working out. In those moments, all I can do is dig deep and realize that my self-preservation depends on my strength and the choices that I make for myself. After all, choosing to live is going to be the sweetest reward I can give myself.
*Some symptoms of diabetes include unusual thirst, frequent urination, unintended weight loss or increased hunger, blurred vision, frequent infections, and wounds or sores that won’t heal. If you experience any of these symptoms or have a family history of diabetes, please get checked out by your doctor!*
Did you know…?
Diabetes has affected people from all walks of life, regardless of race, age, or gender. Some famous diabetic musicians include: Syd Barret, Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, Mick Fleetwood, Nick Jonas, Curtis Mayfield, Bret Michaels, Ghostface Killah, Mark Collie, and Elvis Presley. Diabetes has also affected the following actors and actresses: Halle Berry, James Cagney, Drew Carey, Carol Channing, Victor Garber, Al Lewis (grandpa Munster was diabetic!), Jackie Gleason, Jean Smart, Paul Sorvino, Spencer Tracy, Elizabeth Perkins, and Mae West.

Military Reconnect with Families at Callaway Gardens



Beginning today, the Callaway Homecoming Initiative (CHI), a program a year-long in planning between Emory University, Callaway Gardens and Fort Benning’s Maneuver Operations Center for Excellence, becomes a reality.

The CHI is designed to help members of the U.S. Military reconnect with their families and assimilate into a peacetime home environment upon return from combat deployment.  Set in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in west-central Georgia at Callaway Gardens, this program brings soldiers and families together – at no personal expense – in a spectacular and serene setting, far from the stress and anxiety of war.

A series of classes, developed in partnership with Emory University’s School of Medicine Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit, features experts from around Georgia, who have volunteered their services.They provide information to soldiers and families about unique aspects of military family life and how to transition from the combat theater.  Military families also participate in a regimen of outdoor team challenge,s including a timed adventure race, a zipline course, a laser tag competition and more. Ample time is built-in for recreational activities as well, including golf, tennis, fishing, bicycling and hiking.  When the day’s activities end, CHI participants unwind in Callaway Gardens’ Southern Pine Cottages, set in a secluded woodland environment and equipped with screened porches, full kitchens and fireplaces.

The program is directed by J. Douglas Bremner, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Radiology, and Director of the Emory Center for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. Dr. Bremner also serves as Director of Mental Health Research at the Atlanta VAMC in Decatur, Georgia.

“With all expenses paid and a comprehensive program that addresses all aspects of the combat-to-peacetime transition, CHI is a win-win prospect for everyone – soldier, family and society at large,” said Dr. Bremner.

“Callaway Gardens was created to provide a place of nourishment for the soul, consolation for the heart, and inspiration for the mind,” said Edward Callaway, Callaway Gardens’ chairman of the board.  “What better group of people to engage in this environment so that they can benefit from its beauty at such an important and critical time in their lives to re-connect with themselves, their family and their homeland after providing such an incredible service to our country.”
