Lactose Intolerance
What is it?
The inablity to absorb lactose, or milk sugar. Lactose intolerance is usually temporary, and most commonly occurs in babies and children, after an attack of gastroenteritis. In rare cases, the condition is present at birth and last for life.
Symptoms:
Inability to asborb lactose, watery diarrhoea, vomiting
Conventional Practice:
A doctor will determine if lactose intolerance is present by testing a baby’s faeces for sugar. As the condition is intensified by taking milk, he will advise avoiding them until the digestion of lactose is back to normal.
Alternative Treatments:

  Naturopathy has concentrated on helping the body to cure itself. It aims to do this by means of various therapies, chiropractic, diets and dieting, exercise, hydrotherapy, massage, osteopathy, relaxation and breathing, and yoga.
