The Kind of Letter That Gives Me Hope for the Future
Recently, I received the following email. It is a wonderful testimony about the power of raw milk to change a life.
I’m writing to inquire about the local Weston A Price Foundation chapter that you lead. I’m entirely new to the foundation…I’ve been hearing about it at a local homeopathic study group that I’ve been attending since May. At first it sounded bizarre but the more I listened, the more it started making sense (just like homeopathy).
Then I tried, for the first time, some raw milk and it just blew me away. In fact, I’ve never liked milk much and I’ve been lactose-intolerant for the past 20 years. I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing about raw milk so I drank one-third of my half gallon the night I brought it home. Amazingly – no problems at all.
In fact, I woke up the next morning with a strong craving for it. The next night I pushed the experiment further and ate a HUGE piece of cake with buttery frosting (this would normally put me in agony) and drank a BIG cup of the raw milk. I had not a single bit of discomfort. Truly astounding. And now, I can barely tolerate the soy milk and hemp drink I had been using in place of milk. Even my 2-1/2 year old, having tasted the raw milk just once, is STILL asking for it (2 weeks later).
Anyhow, I’m wondering what the local chapter does, how I can get more involved, deepen my understanding and put the foundation’s principles into practice.

Note from Kimberly:
Here is the blog post, Yummy Raw Milk, Chris did after sending me this letter about his first experience with raw milk. I wrote Chris back and suggested he join our Northern Virginia Whole Foods Nutrition meetup group, which is what our local chapter uses to do outreach and education. I highly recommend WAPF chapter leaders to use meetup.com for organizing your events and activism. See my article about How Meetup is Helping us Grow WAPF on Cheeseslave.com.
