Diet elimination. It took a long time.
We are musician/entertainers. They got so bad once, people thought I must have beat her. We get along so well, we don't even know how to fight, it's a pure bliss lucky-as-hell relationship.
That club never hired us again, so the long elimination process started. When it came to dairy, the results were quick.
After she eliminated dairy for a month or so and didn't get the black eyes, she reintroduced it and they came back. Re-elimination brought them back again.
Now she can get the calcium she needs, and enjoy butter and cheese as long as it's A2. To be safe, we get European cheese.
If they would sell domestic A2 cheese here in our area, we'd gladly buy it if it is one of the flavors we like.
At one of the grocery stores nearby they have A2 milk, but milk has too many carbs for us. We wrote to the company and asked them to make A2 heavy whipping cream, and received no response. I still put heavy whipping cream in my tea and coffee, she has to use that coconut/almond concoction that is better than nothing, but not as good.
