I have had to buy my cultures off the internet because Hot Dog can't have anything dairy that has been pasteurized. He seems to be doing well with fermented raw goat's milk. He was treated last week to desensitize him to his allergies. So far, so good. He at least didn't react too much to the cookie cake he got this weekend. We'll see how the rest of the week goes. He seems to break out very badly once the offending food hits the large intestines. We should see that tomorrow. He also goes in for allergy treatments again tomorrow. I am hoping he'll address the dairy. Last time it was sugar.
I am off to grind some grain to start a sour dough and to soak some grain to make a different kind of sour dough in the mean time. We are getting desperate for mom's homemade bread but I won't make it unless I have now soaked the grains. I fully believe the phytates that were left in my bread were what were causing me so many problems. In fact, I am still very depleted of iron right now. I will start back my chlorophyll and see if I can build back my iron stores. It explains why I have been so tired lately. It wasn't getting up with Ashley that's making me tired. I am anemic still from my pregnancy.
