Question: Why would someone crave buttermilk? My father is 73 years old with numerous health problems. He is diabetic and has a condition called Myeloproliferative Disease that is a cousin of Lukemia. Lately he has all but stopped eating but he craves buttermilk and consumes it by at least a half gallon a day. Why would he crave buttermilk?

Answer: Buttermilk is one of the most effective home remedies in the treatment of diarrhea. Buttermilk is the residual milk left after the fat has been removed from curd by churning. It helps overcome harmful intestinal flora. The acid in the buttermilk also fights germs and bacteria. Buttermilk may be taken with a pinch of salt three or four times a day for controlling this disease.… My father used to crave buttermilk when his stomach was upset and hurting from some sort of ulcer.
