Therefore, these are the cases that we are not very sure about and we do not know which of them, how and under what conditions they produced the milk and delivered it to you. As a result, since there is no strict monitoring of the type of food, drugs and lifestyle of livestock in the country, it is not easy to be sure about their medicinal and nutritional properties.
Referring to which animal’s milk is more suitable for consumption, Bahadri said: In terms of which animal’s milk is more suitable for humans, it should be said that the milk of an animal whose gestation period is close to the duration of human pregnancy is more suitable in terms of nutrition. The best milk is the milk of a young, fat and healthy cow that grazes in pastures and does not have an unpleasant taste or smell.

Bahadri added: From the point of view of traditional medicine, only people whose body phlegm is balanced can easily consume milk, and people who have a lot of phlegm in their body, especially in their stomach, should be given a special order and to a small extent with the advice of a traditional medicine expert.

Therefore, the consumption of milk should be done with the advice of a traditional medicine specialist, and people who suffer from predominant phlegm should consume milk by cleaning and balancing the phlegm.
Bahadri considered the simultaneous consumption of milk with meat, eggs, fish, fruit (in the form of bananas) and sour and salty foods to be harmful and said: In addition, consuming food immediately after drinking milk and sleeping after it is also not recommended.
He added: Some people eat milk with eggs for breakfast, or eat steak with milk for some meals, while they don’t know that the combination of these two foods together causes stomach heaviness and obstruction of the digestive organs. The person becomes constipated.
Bahadri stated: Now, if this person is a pregnant woman and eats milk with meat (it doesn’t matter if it’s red meat or white meat), she will pass this constipation and heartburn to her baby. Therefore, it is recommended that if a person drinks milk, he should eat meat and egg foods one hour later, and if he eats meat or eggs, he should wait for three hours until this food is digested and then Drink milk to benefit from its healing properties.

While pointing out that yogurt is slow to digest and consuming too much of it is not suitable for cold-tempered people and people who have a cold stomach, Bahadri said: simultaneous consumption of yogurt with meat or fish is not suitable for everyone, especially those suffering from joint pains, and it can cause the disease to worsen. In addition, continuing to consume meat or fish with yogurt at the same time due to the production of mucus can increase the possibility of spotting.
According to him, one of the rich sources of calcium is condensed yogurt. The nature of abstract yogurt is warm and wet, and its ingredients are walnut kernels, thyme, honey and dry mint. People whose joint pain is aggravated by consuming yogurt and milk can use abstract yogurt along with Mosleh.

People who cannot tolerate lactose (milk sugar) and are unable to consume milk, or those who have joint pain and their pain is aggravated by consuming yogurt, can use curd in the form of boiled curd (combination of curd, hot onion, mint and walnut).

But in traditional medicine, the time to eat certain foods and also what to eat them with and what not to eat them are very important; One of these foods is dairy products, which should be more careful in their consumption.
