Yesterday my wife reluctantly told me that her ankle, back and fingers had finally stopped causing her a lot of pain. I thought she was feeling guilty about taking pain medication. Come to find out that she finally took my advice and stopped eating wheat, breads and pasta and noticed a difference within two days!
For all of you new people out there please beware!
The lectin (protein) in wheat is a destructive little beast. First it damages the lining of your intestines causing discomfort, irritation and larger openings for the lectins to get into your blood stream. Then it gets into your joints and attaches to the tissue causing inflammation. White blood cells see a problem and attack the tissue causing damage. Wheat lectins also mimic insulin by attaching to the same receptor sites but do not respond the cell instructions to let go when the cell has had enough sugar. When cells take in too much sugar it is stored as fat. Wheat protein has even been found in the brains of Alzheimer sufferers.
If that was not enough, wheat lectins are attracted to the thyroid and attach, causing inflammation and then the thyroid gets damaged when white blood cells sense something is wrong and attack the inflamed tissue.
My wife has seen results with her joints feeling better, but I hope she sees the connection to her thyroid issues before it gets any worse.
