Latest from Deeks - Unload your Immune System

By Christie Stuart Christie 6/11/2019 3:07 pm

Plant lectins, found across the grains, are considered as anti-nutrients, because they block nutrient absorption and cause gut inflammation. Every person who eats grains experiences low to high grade immune system inflammation and subsequent disruption to the function of gut cells. This causes leaky gut (google zonulin) and leads to inappropriate immune function such as Type-3 allergies.

Eating bakery foods that are Grain-Free improves gastrointestinal health and prevents the immune system inflammatory responses from damaging the gut (as occurs in coeliac disease, ulcerative colitis, Chron’s disease and other autoimmune diseases). In some people, up to 80% of their body’s immune resources are often inappropriately focused on the gastrointestinal tract when they eat grain lectins. By totally removing these from the diet, your immune system can refocus on removing cancer cells, defending against infections and repairing organs and other tissue. Your health will improve and you will feel better.
