The Plant Paradox

According to Dr. Steven Gundry's book The Plant Paradox, gluten is only one type of a common and highly harmful plant-based protein called lectin.

The hardy lectins in grains, such as wheat, may be found not just in grain-based foods but also in the "gluten-free" meals that most of us consider being nutritious, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products.

These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants function to protect them from predators. They cause inflammatory reactions leading to weight gain and serious health conditions when ingested by humans.

Patients from California who are on Dr. Gundry's waitlist have benefitted enormously from his clinics, which focus on repairing gut damage, detoxing cells, and nourishing the body.

By successfully following this protocol, patients have been able to reverse various effects of autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Now, in The Plant Paradox, he makes this clinically validated program available to readers all over the world. There are plenty of lectins out there. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry provides us with easy strategies for avoiding them, such as peeling your veggies and buying seasonal fruit.

By providing a list of lectin-containing foods and their substitutes, step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin free recipes, The Plant Paradox will show you the dangers lurking in your salad bowland how to eat whole foods in a new way.
