True Health: Reduce Grains

All grains contain little proteins called lectins. When lectins reach your stomach your immune system will try to fight them off causing bad inflammation and potentially putting little holes in your stomach lining.

Not only does this cause pain and irritation, but now food particles can leak out of your stomach possibly causing allergic reactions to common foods such as chicken or apples.

Many autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or even multiple sclerosis are linked to consumption of lectins found in grains.
