Homeopath 's  Response

Eating raw rice can be due to a condition known as PICA (eating non-foods or indigestable foods), eating raw rice may cause infections especially if rice is unwahsed. why you eat rice? what makes you to eat rice? this is more important. There may be some nutritional deficiency (esp Anemia, so check your Heamoglobin %), I suggest you to get CBC (blood test) done and then meet a Experienced Homeopathy Doctor, who will help you. You seem to have some other health issues apart from eating raw rice and Hormonal problems.

Eating of raw rice has nothing to do with hormonal imbalance. This should be taken care of. Ayurveda with herbs easily cures this imbalance. Eating of raw rice if exceeds limit can cause abdominal pain so it is not a good habit. In some cases deworming helped to shun this habit. have tab. krimi kuthar ras 2 bd for five days followed by punarnava mandur 1 tab. bd for 15 days.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Eating raw rice does not pose any health problems as long as you can digest it well.To stop eating rice, you can start eating chewing gum. If your mouth contains something you are not likely to put a second thing in your mouth. Check for blood haemoglobin levels as you may have iron deficiency.
