Allergy GONE?

Posted by Ponderer [4789.7957] on October 29, 2009 at 15:19:02:

Hi y'all,

First, I have tried lots of things to deal with my allergies, including healing a leaky gut TWICE, NATE therapy, etc.

I have a bona fide ALLERGY to rice as documented on my Immunolabs report, so it was NOT an insensitivity.

Recently I read that soaking rice prior to cooking can help with digestion (Weston Price fans know this about all grains and seeds), so I thought I'd give it a shot. After rinsing I soaked my rice overnight, then cooked it just now. (Use less water than usual if you soak your rice; instructions are online, but generally for long-grain white rice it's about 1-1/4 cups of H2O per cuppa rice.) When it was done I only salted and peppered it so as not to confuse the issue by adding other ingredients (I'm allergic to dairy, so butter was not an option.)

I ate TWO saucer-sized platefulls.

Guess what!! NOTHING. No runny eyes, no sneezing, NOTHING.

Next I will try brown rice, which has more rice protein than the white. ;)

This is great because rice is CHEAP, and after having been laid off last year and then having my pay cut thrice at my new job I need the break.

(Please no lectures about healing the gut; I know that, just haven't gotten around to it with working two jobs.)

I hope this helps someone else.

Good for you, Ponderer. I'm just commenting on the butter. Some people don't put that in the category of dairy. Maybe you don't care but if you would like to use butter, you could do a little research on it.

You must be referring to ghee (clarified butter, milk solids removed).

I use ghee while cooking, but some things (like a steaming bed of fluffy rice and golden crusty cornbread!) just aren't the same sans the real thing. :)

Walt, question on butter.

Love cornbread, too! Let's ask Walt about the butter?
Is it considered dairy, Walt?

AT,

I do not consider butter dairy (except for the hormones, antibiotics, weed spray and insecticides the cows are exposed to). They are all present in the butter.

The protein (caseine) that causes the dairy allergies and the lactose--that causes such a high % of people to have GI symptoms--are not present in the butter.

Hope this helps.

Walt

I consider it coming from the cow's mouth:) Thanks, Walt.
