After reading Cure Tooth Decay, I’ve been looking for raw cream with no success. I’ve talked to local farmers, made calls and spread the word about my need to buy Raw Milk Cream for Carlos and I. All this with no success.
I forgot the basic rule of thumb when it comes to traditional food: Just ask my Aunt.
Last week I spent a good deal of time talking with her in my visit to Ibarra. She’s a good talker and we ended up talking about raw cream
I asked: Do you know where can I get raw milk cream?
She said something like: Near the market, I go there everyday. It’s very fresh and I always buy from them.
(laughs, dances, jumps…I finally found a source of raw cream!!!)
Next day she bought the cream for me. It was very cheap, like US$4 per liter.
I’ve never seen a cream like this. It’s very thick and it tastes great, but most important, it makes me feel good and healthy when I eat it.
I brought the jar in my backpack to Quito and I’ve already consumed half of it. I need to plan another trip to the North soon!
I haven’t been around for a while…how do I want this blog to get visits and comments then? Lol
My son’s tooth was finally extracted and I’m so glad I took that decision and was able to find a professional willing to do that. Most dentists want to keep filling the teeth over and over again, in spite of the expenses (or maybe because of the expenses) and health side effects.
When the dentist took the tooth out of his mouth the reason of all the problems was evident: the root had fissures so no matter how hard the dentists tried to fill the hole, external material kept entering the duct.
Now that he’s almost recovered we have to work on improving the quality of his bones so this wouldn’t happen again. For this purpose I’m so glad I just got the book Nourishing Traditions and two bottles of high quality Cod Liver Oil that he loves taking. I’m also glad that in Ecuador the cattle is pasture fed and that we’ve recently found a source for raw milk.
Due to the size of the book, printing at home could possibly turn more expensive than buying a second-hand copy or even a new one.
