Essene Bread

According to the Ear Right Diet by Dr. D'amado, aN "O" can have Essene Bread. We don't have that here but I found some recipes and wonder how wheat berries can be ok on this diet when all other wheat is not ok.

Leah,

For some reason, wheat berries have a significantly lower glutten
content than regular wheat. Beth Loiselle's (I think that's how you spell
her last name) The Healing power of Whole Foods is a great reference
for any more future questions you might have regarding food.
(Of course, whether it coincides with the ERFYT diet is another
thing.) Hope this helps and good luck! --Ann.

The gluten in wheat that is offensive to some people (rarely on account of having a genetic "allergy," wherein the body simply does not have the enzymes to digest it, but more often the result of a "curable" allergy due to a leaky gut, or on account of a chemical sensitivity problem or a lack of friendly gut flora [each often the result of a leaky gut]) is a protein. It is only sometimes present in TINY amounts in the wheat berries used for Essence bread. This is because wheat berries are wheat allowed time to sprout or develop. In this development process, the growing berry consumes the gluten protein for its own cell nourishment (as we use protein for tissue building also!).

On a related issue, I wonder about the gluten in kamut grain, the grain from which wheat is thought to have evolved. I cant tolerate wheat, but occassionally i eat kamut. I have been very careful and observant, but I'm still not sure if there is a reaction from the gluten in the kamut. Also, I cant tolerate barley with its gluten, but what about spelt grain? Anyone have hard facts about the proteins in these grains ? thanks

Hi, Leon.

Spelt is VERY closely related to wheat antigenitically. The only real way to tell if YOU are sensitive to it is to try it when you have been free af any possible wheat relatives for a few weeks.

Remember, you cannot be hypersensitive unless you have at least some LGS. Just continuing to find things to eliminate, without dealing with the LGS, has as the final result living in a glass box being fed ground platipus through a stainles steel straw. Since that is all you could eat, you would eventually become sensitive to it as well.

Walt

Thank you very much for the info Dr. Stoll ! I have tried spelt grain when "clear," but I dont really know if i had reactions to incidental chemical exposures or stress or even maybe to what might have been in the spelt, even though it is sold as organic. I'm really sensitive (but i have found a lot of relief in the last year from the modified macro-biotic appraoch for chemically sensitive people-- for those people wondering, thats basically organic, whole foods and a life of as little chemical exposure as possible ).

I learned about SR when I found this site about three months ago. I have been doing mine daily since then...three times daily lately. I'm sure my gut is too permeable , given my chemical and candida problems, and the other issues that seem to have been developed as a result.
