I don't know about raw cow's milk, but raw goat's milk has been shown to be more effective treating indigestion and acid reflux than OTC antacids. It can also be ingested by people that are lactose intolerant.
It contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein, and fatty acids that are utilized easily by our bodies and only takes 20 minutes for us to digest. In comparison, cow's milk can take several hours. www.roseofsharonacres.com/raw_goat_milk_be
Unfortunately, in California the only way to get raw goat's milk is by having your own goat because it's illegal to sell goat's milk raw.
As for pasteurization, heating milk kills important enzymes and also changes the structure of the proteins.
It's also important to differentiate between milk from pasture raised animals and that of factory farm animals. You are exponentially more likely to get sick from factory raised dairy animals than pasture raised animals (FYI the organic label does not differentiate the two).
