Seeds and Seed Flours

BTVC says seeds are permissable after 3 months of "no symptoms," so why are seed flours not permitted at that time? Do they clog up systems too much before healing?

From Elaine:
Because the quantity of the flour way surpasses the few seeds that I had in mind when I said "seeds are permissable after 3 months of no symptoms." I meant a sprinkling of sesame, caraway, etc., not using the seeds as flour. I was also afraid of all the fiber with which these seeds are coated. Don't forget we are using blanched almonds without the outer fiber coat.
