Lectin Detox



We’ve seen many patients affected by Lectin toxicity(sensitivity). Lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins that are resistant to breakdown by the body’s digestive enzymes. Eating them in excess or even in small amounts in susceptible people can contribute to a myriad of health problems. Lectins are a major contributor to increased intestinal permeability (“Leaky Gut”).

Many Lectins are toxic to the nervous system, immune system, hypercoagulation, and endocrine disruption.

High-lectin foods are following and should be avoided or greatly minimized in chronic cases.

·        Meats and dairy that are not grass-fed, grass-finished

·        Poultry that isn't pastured

·        Farm-fed fish

·        Beans that are not pressure cooked (an Instant Pot works well)

·        Grains except sorghum and millet

·        Squash/cucumber family, nightshades

·        Nuts and Seeds- peanut, almond, cashews, sunflower, pumpkin, chia, etc.
