I would take colostrum because of the amount of IgA, PrP's and other constituents that help heal the gut! The colostrum that has done research and has been written up in an editorial is Immune Tree.

I think it's unlikely that rice itself is the problem. I would go to a (specialized) doctor and get it checked out. Just to be safe. Self-diagnosing stomach pains can be a bad idea.

The damage to your gut took longer than 6 months to occur. Healing may take years. Though this isn't a magic cure for all that ails ya, there is probably still quite a bit of damage to your gut, even after 6 months.
