I have a question about protein and rice powders.
In Dee's book it states.

"Beware of whey protein powders consisting of whey protein isolates and hydrolyzed whey protein isolates.  These have been further processed to remove fat-including the CAL-lactose, carbohydrates, and other nutrients.  Unfortunately, the human body was not designed to consume protein in an isolated form devoid of its nutritional co factors.  This leaves these powders deficient in key amino acids and immune supporting nutrients." 
    About brown rice protein powder.  "It is important to make the distinction between brown rice protein powder and rice protein powder, the latter of which is made form white rice, a refined food."

I am doing 8 Weeks to Wellness at my chiropractor's office.  Both of the powders that come with the program seem to be those Dee warns against.  My chiropractor believes in all of his products, or he wouldn't use them, but I am not totally convinced.

Is anyone familiar with
Metagenics Ultra Meal WHEY  and
whey protein isolates and
               hydrolyzed whey protein isolates

Apex Energetics Clear Vite SF (K-24)
             Ingredients Rice Protein, Rice malodestrine

It is very confusing to have someone you know and trust your health recommend something someone else says is not good for you.h has assured me that the rice powder is not white processed rice.

Of course the Rice Powder that I am now using is part of the program and already paid for for 5 more weeks.

Thank you for any information that you can give me.

I had a client who asked me about the Metagenics UltraMeal whey.  Her chiro was also recommending it, so I looked it up last year and was appalled, to say the least.  Aside from the whey protein isolate and hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, it contains a bunch of other synthetics:

fructose, rice syrup solids, natural flavors, inulin, dicalcium phosphate, cellulose, magnesium citrate, dipotassium phosphate, olive oil, potassium chloride, guar gum, xanthan gum, ascorbic acid, zinc gluconate, pyridoxine HCl, d-alpha tocopheryl acetate, niacinamide, copper gluconate, D-calcium pantothenate, thiamin HCl, riboflavin, chromium polynicotinate, retinyl palmitate, folic acid, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate†, biotin, potassium iodide, cyanocobalamin, cholecalciferol.

All of those long chemical names are synthetic vitamins.

Not only is the whey highly processed, but the label does not say that it comes from organic milk, or even from hormone-free milk.  So, I would not consider this a healthy product.

Also, I looked up the the ingredient label on the Apex Energetics Clear Vite. This is a cleansing detoxification product, and it does have some natural ingredients, but when an ingredient label says "rice protein" and "rice maltodextrin", that is coming from white rice.  If they were using brown rice protein, the label would say so.  So even though your chiro assured you that it's not from white rice, he may not be aware of the differences in label terms.  

I can empathize with how confusing this is, but you have to understand that many doctors, nurses, registered dieticians, chiropractors and other healthcare professionals don't always have the most accurate information about food.  They don't get much of a nutrition education, and what little they do get is highly influenced by the food industry.  We still have doctors and the whole society saying that canola oil is good and coconut oil is not.

That is why I wrote my books, so I can educate people about all the misinformation and help clear it up.  As you transition into your own real food lifestyle, you're going to find that many people, even those who are formally educated in healthcare, do not know the truth about food.  

Perhaps you could enlighten your chiro by recommending my book?

I am going to give my Chiropractor a copy of your book.

I am also taking Gultathione Recycler,ell, Methyl - SP , Resvero, Turmero, Ultra-D Complex, and Nitric Balance all (K-75) by Apex Energetics.

What can you tell me about them? 

I am also on the Repair Vite Dietary Plan for about 5 weeks now.  (It contains no processed foods ,sugar, dairy, nuts, gluten compounds, grains, night shade vegies, soy, legumes or eggs.

I have 4 more weeks on these and the Rice Protein, and them I will have more blood work done...all paid for. 

Do you have any suggestions?  Are the supplements helping or hurting?

My plan was/is to finish the program, and then just follow the diet plan in your book....and find an endocrinologist who can help me with the Hashimoto's .

What do you think? 

Thanks so much,
