Drink Donkey's Milk to Naturally Cure your Allergy or Diabetic problems

Though, the donkey is normally used as a low-cost option to motorised power on small farms. Its milk is drunk for medicinal purposes in many African societies.

According to research, it is proving to be a viable alternative for children who are allergic to cows' milk (lactose intolerance) and cancer patients. While goat and sheep's milk have been traditional alternatives, they cannot be used in about 90% of cases of cows' milk allergies because the allergens are the same. Other common alternative such as flavoured soya milk, may not be recommended because of the rising incidences of soya allergies amongst the young children in urban areas.

This milk is the closest to a human milk and has many benefits. It's extremely high in omega 3, 6 and 9; the nutrients found in oily fish, which helps to lower cholesterol. It's also needed in the immune system, the gut and importantly for the brain, especially for the young children. It also has high levels of calcium, and contains the enzyme Lysozeme, which is anti-bacterial and can protect against intestinal infections.

Moreover, the donkey milk is very high in antibodies and in glutathione which is an amino acid needed for the liver and it also acts to chelate out toxins from the body. Diabetics, cancer patients and autistic children are usually very low in this nutrient.

Though it doesn't have enough calories to feed a newborn baby alone, Dr Millie Hinkle expects it will be easily made into a formula substitute in the near future.

Milking a donkey

However, donkey milk is not that easy to produce compared to cow dairies. Cows are bred to produce a lot of milk, unlike donkeys which have never been bred that way. A donkey only has two teats, rather than a cow's four, and milking only produces about a litre a day per animal - a cow can produce more than 10 times that.

What's more, a donkey can only be milked for about six months after producing a foal, and even then only when the foal is close by.

How farmers can double their bean yield production

"As Jack slept, the beans germinated in the soil, and by morning a big beanstalk grew in their place. When Jack saw the great beanstalk, he immediately decided to climb..." This is a classic scenario of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' fairy tale. The same is true for Kenya's bean variety that climbs and spreads on sticks producing double the yield of local varieties.

Due to subdivision of land in Kenya, farmers are not able to produce enough beans to feed the 38.6 million people living in Kenya.This is mainly due to shrinking land sizes. This is the reason why high yielding varieties of beans that only need a small area to grow has been developed. These new varieties of beans require support with stakes (sticks) to climb on when they are growing.

The beans can grow up to a height of 3.5 meters. The long stems of this variety of beans enable it to produce more pods as compared to the normal bean varieties (bush bean).   With good management climbing beans can produce u…

Herbal Plants used for Alternative Medicine with no side effect

In a sad note, most indigenous informants keep herbal knowledge, especially the actual preparation methods, strictly secret. Luckily, an aged medicine man from Gatundu in Central Kenya, whose great knowledge of medicinal plants facilitated the write-up of this article.
In part one of this article, plants are grouped according to their medicinal use. According to the aged medicine man, simply boil the leaves, roots or the bark; add honey or milk or soup to sweeten the concoction. He recommends taking a glass in the morning and in the evening for preventive measures. 
He cautions on their medicinal uses which should be considered as neither preparation methods nor dosage prescription are provided. This is a topic that would require much more time and I have decided to leave it for part two of this article.
