LECTIN ELIMINATION DIET

 

 

  1. Drink pure fresh organic carrot juice for 3 to 15 days (do until you feel good). You do not eat or drink anything else. Don't let yourself get hungry, drink up to 4 litres a day if you have to, 2 to 3 liters a day is common. You can drink spring water like Apostle or distilled. Take Dr Christophers lower bowl formula or Herbal Fiber Blend 3 times per day if you have bowl problems or a big gut. If you get strong detox reactions drink plenty of water. Camu Camu will help. Nausea vomiting will be eliviated with a strong tea of ginger, peppermint and clove. But most important, don't stop the fast till you feel good!

 

2.Eat food, according to your blood type, listed in the beneficial column that is low in LECTINS (high lectin foods are grains, nuts, seeds, beans & legums) Dairy and Deadly Nightshades(potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, capsicum, eggplant, cherries, tomatillow, huckleberry, ramarillos, pepinos, naranjillas, pimentos) . Do this for 7 days. Then introduce one food at a time. This can be any food except food in the not allowed column. Eat the selected food in high amounts for 3 meals for one day only. Observe how you feel during the day and the next two days. If there are no undesirable effects then you can include this food with the foods you have already been eating. If you have any undesirable effects then do not eat this food for at least six months, after which you may try it using the above advice to see if you can now tolerate it, otherwise leave it out of your diet for good. Continue introducing one food every 4 days until you have tested all the foods that you would like to eat. Continue taking the bowel herbs. You can take other supplements after the initial 7 days of low lectin foods that are beneficial food for your blood type. I recommend juicing with our super food blend. Ask the staff for a booklet called “THE USES OF JUICES” for some good juice recipies.

 

3.If the low lectin diet does not work or has a partial benefit only, then you may have to avoid foods high in Amines, Salicylates and Glutamates. See the food list attached for foods high in these potential risks.

Foods rich in glutamate and aspartate:

Grains: Wheat, barley, and oats are highest. Corn and rice are lower than the previous three but higher than potatoes.

Dairy Products: All Cheeses (cheddar, Swiss, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella, PARMESAN) are very high. Casein is very concentrated in cheese and is 20% glutamic acid by composition.

Beans: Soy, Pinto, lima, black, navy, and lentils

Seeds: Sunflower, pumpkin, etc.

Peanuts: Very high, as are cashews, pistachios, and almonds. Everything in moderation applies when eating nuts of any kind. So, I do not recommend you reach for nuts when you are really hungry unless you can stop after a few. Nuts are very good for you..in moderation. For example, seven almonds a day gives you what you need .

Diet drinks: Primary source of aspartate (aspartame/Nutrasweet)

Prepared foods, soups:  70% of prepared foods and many soups have MSG

 

Foods high in Salicylates

Definition

The aim of the Low Salicylate Diet is to reduce the amount of Salicylates in the diet. Salicylic acid is found naturally in many fruits and flavourings and is a common trigger for Hyperactivity or Hives. Remember these conditions may have many different causes or triggers.

Description

The aim of the Low Salicylate Diet is to keep the amount of salicylates below the level at which symptoms appear. This level will vary from person to person and may change in the one person in different circumstances. For example, in times of added stress, you may react to a smaller dose of salicylate than at other times. Complete elimination of Salicylates may make the diet unnecessarily restrictive and nutritionally inadequate.

Signs of Salicylates intolerance/allergy

  • headaches or migraines
  • itchy skin rashes such as hives (urticaria), eczema and others
  • irritable bowel symptoms – reflux in babies or adults, nausea, vomiting, stomach bloating and discomfort, wind, diarrhoea and/or constipation
  • bedwetting, cystitis
  • asthma, stuffy or runny nose, nasal polyps, frequent throat clearing,
  • behaviour problems such as irritability, restlessness, inattention, oppositional defiance, symptoms of ADHD
  • sleep disturbance - difficulty falling asleep, night terrors, frequent night waking, sleep apnoea
  • anxiety, depression, panic attacks
  • rapid heart beat and arrythmias
  • tinnitus, hyperacusis, hearing loss
  • joint pain, arthritis, and more ….
