Another popular trend that’s on the rise is the concern that certain foods are high in lectins and therefore have a negative effect on health. You have to understand that for decades, there have been chronically sick people, and for decades to come, there will be chronically sick people. When someone knows what’s wrong with her or his body, knows what’s causing a symptom or condition, and knows how to heal it, she or he can heal it. Over dozens of years, I’ve witnessed tens of thousands of people do just this：recover their health, even from the most devastating conditions. These recoveries had nothing to do with lectin concern.
We can’t live in bubble, where we believe that nobody got better from what ailed them until the lectin trend came along. The promoters of lectin literature and studies have been completely in the dark about the thousands and thousands of people who’ve healed without their trendy misinformation – it’s as if they have ignored people’s healing because it didn’t fit into their box of what they believed. They pretend that no one has ever healed from chronic illness so that they can build their lectins empire.
This is a prime example of entitled ignorance. the problem with lectin concern is that it removes foods that would actually stop the viruses and other pathogens in people’s bodies that truly cause symptoms and disease. Lectin leaders don’t know about these pathogens, or don’t know their role in causing conditions and illnesses, such as EBV as the true cause of RA. They would rather think a potato is causing someone’s RA than discover the truth that an amino acid in potatoes, L-lysine stops EBV from causing RA. Instead, they believe that autoimmune is the immune system attacking the body’s own cells and destroying itself. Since they don’t understand that this autoimmune theory is inaccurate, they have nowhere else to turn besides blaming it all on lectins, believing in part that lectins are a problem because they supposedly confuse the body and cause it to turn against itself. Meanwhile, they remove the foods that can heal you, such as fruit and certain vegetables, roots, and tubers, leading you to eat more fats and hurt your liver.
The lectins in fruits and vegetables do not harm us. Please don’t let any source confuse you into thinking that lectins are like the toxic alkaloids produced as a defense mechanism by some wild plants not fit for human consumption. There are shoots and twigs and other plants that, if a deer takes a bite of them, surface alkaloids to repel that deer and other animals and insects from damaging them further. We already don’t eat those foods because we know they’re toxic to us – and lectins aren’t even what makes them a problem. Garden-variety fruits and vegetables, and even the wild plants we know to be edible, are in a while different category, yet they’re being lumped together with problematic alkaloid-containing plants. Again the lectins in the foods we eat do no cause harm.
There’re certain proteins that aren’t in fruits and vegetables and are in items such as dairy, eggs, and certain grains including wheat, that do feed pathogen, creating inflammation. Lectins aren’t one of them. There are dozens of proteins and compounds in dairy, eggs and wheat for experts to hang dozens of hats on in their quest to alleviate chronic illness, and yet they try to hang their hat on the one that’s not a problem: lectin. It’s ironic. Yes be concerned about gluten rick foods. No, don’t be afraid of potatoes and fresh, ripe tomatoes – I’ve watched them heal even the sickest people. I’ve even recently seen potatoes save some lives.
Look out for anti-lectin sentiment and be cautions about buying into it. This trendy mistake is going to continue to create confusion with healing into the future. It’s another anti-fruit campaign, another biased design to stop you from eating the fruits that heal your liver and body, another excuse for medical research and science’s lack of knowledge about what causes chronic illness. Please don’t let it rob you and your children of what you need to heal along the way.
