SEEDS AND SEED FLOURS

Seeds and Seed Flours

Question:
BTVC says seeds are permissable after 3 months of "no symptoms," so why are seed flours not permitted at that time? Do they clog up systems too much before healing?

From Elaine:
Because the quantity of the flour way surpasses the few seeds that I had in mind when I said "seeds are permissable after 3 months of no symptoms." I meant a sprinkling of sesame, caraway, etc., not using the seeds as flour. I was also afraid of all the fiber with which these seeds are coated. Don't forget we are using blanched almonds without the outer fiber coat.

Originally from the Long Island listserve.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
