Client Success Story!

NAET successfully alleviates hay fever.

From BH, Bloomfield Hills, MI
Before treatment:  I have had hay fever since I was in high school and have taken over the counter medication for almost 5 decades.  Finally, on a particular Friday in the summer of 2013 we were out of town and I did not have my usual dosage of Claritin.  I became ill with sneezing and headache.  We stopped at the drug store for a refill.  I took the medication but became even more nauseated.  I knew that I did not want to go on with this type of dependence on yet another over the counter medication.  I found New Life Allergy Treatment Center and thought I'd give it a try. 

After treatment:  Since being treated by Terry I don't even know that it is allergy season.  I have never been able to breathe out of both sides of my nose until the acupressure treatments.  It's now been 4 1/2 years and I'm still free of any symptoms of any allergy.  It's an unbelievable feeling to be able to breathe fully and completely.  Thank you to Terry and her natural solution to health.

All About Forbidden Rice (or Black Rice)
Excerpts from https://draxe.com/forbidden-rice/

Despite being less popular than brown rice or wild rice, black rice, known as forbidden rice, is an ancient grain that has even more impressive health benefits than most other closely related rice varieties.

Not only is it the type of rice that is richest in powerful disease-fighting antioxidants, but it also contains dietary fiber, anti-inflammatory properties, and has the ability to help stop the development of diabetes, cancer, heart disease and even weight gain.

The History of Forbidden Rice

Black rice is commonly referred to as “forbidden rice” because of its long and interesting history. As you probably know, all rice varieties are a substantial and important crop in the diet of nearly every Asian population, and have been for thousands of years.  In China, black rice has been known for being good for the kidneys, stomach and liver since ancient times.

Thousands of years ago in ancient China, noble Chinese men took possession of every grain of the black forbidden rice, banning its consumption among anyone who was not royalty or very wealthy.

The crop was only grown in very limited quantities, closely monitored, and reserved for only the highest elite class.The common Chinese people were not allowed to grow or consume this black forbidden rice, which led to its unique name that it still carries with it today.

Black rice was actually only first introduced to the United States in the 1990’s, although it’s been enjoyed in other parts of the world for many more years. Today it is no longer forbidden, but still is grown in relatively small amounts especially compared to other types of widely available rice varieties.

How to Cook Black Rice

Black rice comes from the same plant family as other colored rices and includes several varieties, such as Indonesian black rice and Thai jasmine black rice. The different types of black rice contain very similar health benefits and all have a mild, nutty taste which is similar to the taste of more familiar brown rice.

Because it is unrefined and denser than white rice, black rice takes longer to cook. The best results can be achieved by first soaking your black rice for at least one hour before cooking it, but preferably for several hours.

If you can plan ahead of time and soak your rice, you will cut down on the amount of cooking time required and also make the nutrients in the rice more absorbable.

After soaking your rice, rinse the rice clean and then place it on the stove top with two cups of water for every one cup of rice. Boil the rice for at least one half  hour if you did soak the rice, and for one hour if you didn’t.

Check the texture of the rice after this time to see if it is chewy and cooked through; if not, keep boiling until it reaches the texture you’re looking for.

Black Rice Recipes

Not sure what to do with black rice? It makes a delicious side dish all on its own with some salt and pepper, but can also be added to stir fries, soups and stews, or sprinkled on top of a salad. Add cooked black rice to homemade veggie burgers, in burritos instead of white rice, or served with fresh roasted vegetables and your favorite source of protein.

Some people even chose to grind the dry rice kernels in a coffee grinder or food processor and then use the ground rice to bake with, coat fish with, or just to sprinkle over other foods for an extra antioxidant boost.

Black rice has been used in traditional Chinese desserts and snacks to make a dessert porridge, black rice cakes or breads, noodles, and more. So as you can see, there are plenty of options for adding some to your diet.

Fried Forbidden Rice

Active Time: 25 MIN  Total Time: 1 HR 25 MIN
Yield: Serves : 6

For a robust take on the Indonesian fried rice dish nasi goreng, stir-fry black rice, sometimes called forbidden rice, with bacon and roasted garlic.


  • 1 head of garlic (about 12 cloves), cloves peeled
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 1/2 cups black rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 pound lean bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari
  • Salt and freshly ground white pepper
  • 4 scallions, coarsely chopped

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°. Put the garlic cloves on a double sheet of foil and drizzle with vegetable oil. Seal the foil around the garlic and bake for about 1 hour, until the garlic is soft and caramelized. Let cool, then refrigerate overnight.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, cover the black rice with the water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes, until the water is absorbed and the rice is just tender. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

Step 3    

In a large, deep skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until crisp, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate.

Step 4    

Pour off all of the fat in the skillet and add the 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the bacon, black rice and roasted garlic and stir-fry over moderately high heat until warmed through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce and season with salt and white pepper. Transfer to bowls, garnish with the scallions and serve right away.


How New Life Allergy Treatment Center and NAET can help you

The first step in the process of getting rid of allergy related symptoms is the testing. We test on a computerized system developed by Bio Meridian International. The Vantage System allows us to use principals of Oriental medicine to determine what items the patient's body is not energetically compatible with. The testing is painless and takes about 15 minutes. After taking a detailed health history, we check over 150 items including vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to see if they are being absorbed properly, food items and environmental agents to check for reactions and sensitivities. A professional computerized printout of the results is given to the patient on the following visit.
