Lactose Intolerance and Dairy Allergy Natural Alternative Treatment

Effective Ayurvedic Treatments for Managing Lactose Intolerance and Dairy Allergy


Lactose intolerance or dairy allergy means the inability of the body to digest lactose, a form of natural sugar present in milk and dairy products. When the patients with lactose intolerance consume milk or dairy products, they suffer from bloating, and pain in the abdomen.


Most patients consider lactose intolerance and food allergy to milk to be the same. However, both of these are different conditions. Lactose intolerance occurs due to the digestive problems, which results in the inability of the stomach and intestine to digest lactose while the allergy to milk occurs due to an abnormal response of the immune system to the same.


In lactose intolerance, the lactose moves through the colon without being digested, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms like flatulence, bloating and belly pain. The symptoms usually begin about 30 minutes after the consumption of milk or dairy product. The other symptoms of this disease include cramps in the abdomen, loose motions, gurgling and rumbling sounds in the belly and vomiting. The symptoms can be mild to severe, depending on the amount of an enzyme known as lactase, which is produced in the intestine.


Lactose intolerance occurs due to the lack of or insufficient production of lactase in the small intestine, which is needed to break down, and digest lactose. Lactose intolerance and dairy allergy may occur after the small intestine stops producing lactase following an acute illness like stomach flu or a chronic disease like cystic fibrosis.


The production of lactase may even be affected due to the damage to the small intestine or removal of a part of the small intestine during surgery. In these cases, the symptoms can be either temporary or permanent. Patients suffering from this problem can seek lactose intolerance symptoms treatment using the herbs recommended by Ayurveda. [1]


Lactose Intolerance Symptoms In Adults


The severity of lactose intolerance varies among different patients. Some patients can not digest any milk product while some can eat and drink a small amount of milk or consume certain types of milk products without developing any symptoms.


Lactose intolerance poses a big challenge for the patients as they have to avoid the discomfort caused due to the consumption of milk and dairy products and also ensure their body gets enough supply of calcium for maintaining the health of bones and teeth. Ayurvedic medications can provide relief from the intolerance symptoms to dairy products.


Lactose Intolerance Foods To Avoid 


The patients suffering from this condition should know the foods to avoid preventing the lactose intolerance symptoms from occurring. They should avoid eating and drinking milk and the dairy products like yogurt, and cheese.


However, care must be taken to replace the nutrients present in the dairy products, especially calcium, so that the body is not deprived of its source of essential vitamins and minerals. The diet plan for lactose intolerance should include the foods that are high in calcium. Since milk is also a good source of vitamin D and fiber, the lactose intolerance diet should include foods that can replace these nutrients.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏
