I received this e-mail this morning from a customer of Ernie Durose who has recently started buying his Guernsleigh Cheese, which we believe to be the only cheese on the market from “tested A2” cows, my correspondent is a a mother named Louise, and I thank her for giving permission to use her testimonial.
I only became aware of A2 milk a year ago having seen such huge improvements in my sons behaviour and gut after cutting milk out. Normal milk gives him headaches (enough to keep him off school), Hyperactivity, boils and eczema, bad tempered behaviour, tummy pain and completely loose stalls with a few hours of having milk. And because if his Autism, he wasn’t able to tell me he was in pain as it is what he grew up with. He only ever had Goats milk, as I had a feeling that he shouldn’t be having Cows milk however it had the same effect. I took him off all wheat and dairy products in September 2011 and not only us as parents but school and his teacher noticed a huge difference in his behaviour. He only has to have a piece if chocolate, something with butter, or cheese in then within 2 hours, he has accidents, needs to go to the toilet every half hour and then the hyperactivity and bad moods kick in and then I realise he is in pain.
We tried some A2 milk from a local farm a year ago but it went straight through him (the cows hadn’t been tested) and the usual reactions occurred. So I was very excited to then see it in Morrisons and he is fine with it, and then shortly after, we tried Ernies cheese and I cannot believe that he can put it in his mouth and have no reactions. I too have given up milk and have stopped having frequent 3 day migraines. I too am now trying the A2 products.
