ARE YOU OVERLOOKING THIS HIDDEN SOURCE OF JOINT PAIN, GUT WOES AND THYROID PROBLEMS?
Dr. Joe Mercola
Plant lectins act as a built-in defense mechanism that ensures survival by triggering a negative reaction in predators; in humans they attach to your cell membranes, often wreaking havoc on your health.
Many lectins can cause inflammation, damage your nerves and kill your cells, while some increase your blood viscosity, interfere with gene expression and disrupt your endocrine function.
While it is nearly impossible to avoid all lectins due to their presence in countless foods, if you are struggling with an autoimmune disease or other chronic health issue, you may benefit from a lectin-restricted diet.
Among the most problematic lectin-containing foods are beans, grains, legumes and members of the nightshade family like eggplants, potatoes and peppers.
High-lectin foods can be made safe to eat through proper soaking and cooking, as well as fermenting and sprouting; using a pressure cooker is particularly beneficial for beans.

Hashimoto's was the first disease recognized as an autoimmune disease. It was first described by the Japanese specialist Hakaru Hashimoto in Germany in 1912. Hashimoto's is also known as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or HT. In this autoimmune disorder the body produces an antibody that attacks the thyroid gland resulting in inflammation, and often decreased thyroid function (hypothyroidism).
Obesity has hit epidemic proportions and the world is desperate to do anything to lose their unwanted fat.
Although eating a healthy diet and exercise is paramount to losing fat, there is one little unknown fact that will prevent millions of people from ever losing fat.
Often information comes along that needs to be passed on. This article from Science Daily is an example of that information. This research paper explains a phenomenon that clinicians such as myself have observed for a long time. I get dozens of requests for information monthly from thyroid symptoms sufferers, whose tests are "normal".
Come a little closer and listen up. This is the well-hidden "Ultimate Strategy" for dealing with thyroid disorder symptoms, you've been waiting to hear about. Although there is no agreement on exactly 'HOW' it happens, top researchers now agree that there is absolutely NO DOUBT the major CAUSE, if not THE primary cause of your Thyroid disorders in the United Stated is... autoimmune attack of the thyroid. As I have stated, research points to the immune system mounting an attack on the thyroid gland - causing it to be destroyed over time as a major cause - of thyroid disorder symptoms.
