Many doing a Paleo lifestyle do not have any dairy or only raw grass-fed dairy products. If you know you tolerate dairy then cheese once in a while won't kill you. I don't know what Paleo recipes you're reading that call for Swiss cheese though. I... (more)

The typical parmesan taste is umami, so presumably you could substitute for anything else that has a strong umami taste. According to wikipedia this would be any kind of cultured or fermented product, though perhaps you wouldn't want your pesto... (more)

Some people can, some cannot. It will depend on whether or not you react to lactose or the proteins in cow dairy. You will have to decide if the risks are worth the rewards.

One of my local stores has some unpasteurized, natural cheese. You have to look hard to find things, but I agree that the first 4-6 weeks you should avoid all dairy. Once you are in a healthy state, add some things and see how you feel.

You need to worry about the large casein intake, is it A1 or A2 (if cow cheese) if you are sensitive, are you addicted to the exomorphins, and also, it's fermented via mold, which can create some gnarly toxins (i.e. it's filled with mold poop... (more)
