The Lectin Detox
The Lectin Detox - Needless to say, this experience caused me to seriously question the validity of modern medical pharmacology--which can largely be traced back to the atrocities of Nazi experimentation in Germany and the rise of the Third Reich. In his book, “Blitzed”, author Norman Ohler states boldly that the course of history was altered by the Nazis love affair with hardcore drugs, including cocaine, heroin, morphine, and above all, methamphetamine...or crystal meth. According to Ohler, Hitler was an absolute junkie, and, by the time he retreated to the last of his bunkers, his veins were ruined from addiction.

The Lectin Detox - "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." - Arthur Schopenhauer. My name is Matthew James, and at the age of four my throat closed over and I couldn’t breathe. I almost died. This was my first anaphylactic reaction to contaminated food. I suffered for decades with severe atopic dermatitis, however, through an understanding of natural health...I did what all the creams, ointments, antibiotics, and experimental pharmaceuticals couldn’t do...I overcame my condition. And thankfully, now, I have no need for the prescriptions that I now view as deadly. To illustrate, in May, 2016, the British Medical Journal published an article called “Medical Error--The Third Leading Cause of Death in the United States”. The article estimates that as many as 250,000 people die each year in the U.S. because of medical doctors.

The Lectin Detox - “Chiropractors correct abnormalities of the intellect as well as those of the body” - D.D. Palmer, Founder of Chiropractic. On March 7th, 1845 Daniel David Palmer, was born in Port Perry, Ontario...a small Canadian town, located about 30 minutes drive east of Toronto. At the age of twenty, despite his Canadian roots, Palmer emigrated to the United States with his father, Thomas Palmer, and mother Katherine McVay. Here, he held various jobs: including beekeeper, school teacher, and grocery store owner. Ultimately, he began practicing magnetic healing beginning in the mid 1880s in Burlington and Davenport, Iowa. Magnetic healing involved the use of permanent magnets to positively influence the human body--especially blood flow.

The Lectin Detox - “Sterilization of the mentally and physically defective has long been advocated, but only recently has it seeped into the public consciousness. From the day when Plato wrote his Republic to the present, eugenicists have advanced various solutions to the problem of the defective, but sterilization seems to meet the requirements of the situation most aptly. For while it gives protection to society, yet it deprives the defective of nothing except the privilege of bringing into the world children who would only be a care to themselves and a charge to society…. Only those mentally defective and those incurably diseased should be sterilized. Many subnormal families whose intelligence is not of a high order are capable of raising useful citizens. But society should have some voice in the charges and responsibilities it will assume, not only now, but in the generations to come”. These are the words of Tommy Douglas--voted the all-time “greatest Canadian” in 2004.

The Lectin Detox - "Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows their image." -- Geothe My name is Matthew. I almost died in a Kindergarten classroom when I was four years old. My skin turned blue and my throat closed over. I had my first life threatening allergic reaction. I soon developed severe atopic dermatitis all over my body. For the next thirty years, dozens of highly trained medical specialists told me that my immune system was dysfunctional: that I was broken. They gave me creams, ointments, experimental immunological regulators, antihistamines, and antibiotics--but my condition only worsened. Eventually, I could hardly walk, and, when I smiled, blood would often drip down as the weakened skin around my mouth split open. It wasn’t until I learned about lectins and worked vigorously to flush them from my body, that I began to recover. And though it took time, I healed--proving, that the medical degrees, the egos, the hubris, and the pharmacological research were all, shockingly, wrong.

The Lectin Detox - "Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health." --Carl Gustav Jung My name is Matthew. I almost died when I was four years old from an intense allergic reaction. My throat closed over, my skin turned blue, and I developed severe atopic dermatitis all over my body, which I suffered from for the next thirty years. Dozens of highly trained medical specialists told me that my condition was lifelong and irreversible. They told me that it was my fault that I was sick. My immune system was dysfunctional; it was insane: attacking itself. I felt deficient, broken, and sad--until I did what the doctors couldn’t do: I healed.

The Lectin Detox - “It’s a matter of deriving flavor from otherwise byproducts or what would be considered waste in commercial kitchens. It’s not enough to ask people to put something on the plate because it’s the right thing to do. Instead we want people to enjoy it. We want people to come back to these ingredients as things with their own intrinsic value.” – Chef Kim Wejendorp, Head of R&D at Amass Restaurant, Copenhagen. My name is Matthew, and when I was 4 years old my skin turned blue, my throat closed over, and I almost died. In a dark corner of a senior Kindergarten classroom, I experienced my first severe anaphylactic reaction to lectin proteins--found in a brownie baked lovingly by my best friend’s mom. Ultimately, severe atopic dermatitis covered my entire body, and I was placed on a strict dietary regiment of mostly corn, rice, tomatoes, and potatoes. To control things, my four year old body was given liquid hydroxyzine (Atarax)...a heavy tranquilizer used in the pre-operative sedation and treatment of neurological disorders, such as psychoneurosis and other forms of anxiety or tension states. It caused hallucinations and hypnotic episodes and I was prescribed the drug for over 10 years--and doctors instructed my mother to dose me at least three times a day.

The Lectin Detox - "People who try to win arguments are the worst. The point of an argument isn’t to find a winner, it is to find the truth.” -Jordan Peterson. My name is Matthew, and when I was 4 years old my throat closed over from an anaphylactic reaction. My skin turned blue, and I almost died. I developed severe eczema all over my body, and suffered daily with oozing, cracked skin. Many times I would wake up in the morning to find my face (literally) stuck to the pillow. My skin would need to be peeled off the fabric to get free. At other times, I would rise to find my eyes glued shut from fluid infection. My mother would help me "unstick" by patting them with a warm, wet cloth. The cloths turned yellow as they soaked up the discharge. It took me decades, but I finally figured out how to do what dozens of highly trained medical specialists couldn’t do--what they said no one could do: I healed. What I discovered is the exact reason Tom Brady (winner of 7 Superbowl championships, and father of three) avoids ingesting tomatoes, sweet peppers, chili peppers, eggplants, white potatoes, dairy, wheat, tortillas, pasta, cereal, bagels, pretzels, pancakes, and canola oil. Brady’s former personal chef, Allen Campbell tells us that these foods, especially tomatoes, cause serious inflammation in the body. However, modern medical doctors disagree.

The Lectin Detox - Joseph Goebbels once said that If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
My name is Matthew, and this lie almost cost me my life...once when I was four years old and again when I was seventeen--when my throat closed over from a nut lectin reaction. My skin turned blue, and I had almost no oxygen left in my blood when I reached the hospital. Here, for the umpteenth time, I was told the big lie: that my body was dysfunctional, that my immune system was insane--attacking and destroying itself. And, that there was nothing I could do but turn to steady (and costly) pharmacological management for my condition.
This lie was told in a great effort to maximize profits for the medical corporations, and keep me poisoned, ignorant, and sick. My body wasn’t mad after all. Instead, I was subsidizing an ongoing stream of cheap and toxic lectin proteins--mostly from corn. Corn, I found, was everywhere, but no where more it more hidden than in the beef that I was eating.
The Lectin Detox - Very simply, we subsidize high-fructose corn syrup in this country, but not carrots. While the surgeon general is raising alarms over the epidemic of obesity, the president is signing farm bills designed to keep the river of cheap corn flowing, guaranteeing that the cheapest calories in the supermarket will continue to be the unhealthiest. Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma. My name is Matthew, and I suffered for decades with severe atopic dermatitis--and have almost died twice from my throat closing over due to serious nut lectin reactions. It wasn’t until I started seeing autoimmune disease as a symptom of food poisoning that I did the seemingly impossible--what dozens of highly specialized medical doctors couldn’t do: I healed. It is my contention that these “cheap rivers of corn” paid for by the disgruntled and passive taxpayer (and future taxpayers) are much more diabolical than most people think.
The Lectin Detox - Socrates once said that it is better to change your opinion, than persist in a wrong one. My name is Matthew. I have almost died twice from my throat closing over as a response to lectin proteins, and since the age of four I suffered chronic pain from severe atopic dermatitis, which covered my entire body. By changing how I thought about immunology, I was able to heal myself--after many decades of having oozing, inflamed skin--and after dozens of highly trained specialized medical doctors said that my condition was not solvable. What I learned was that dietary lectins cause disease. Here’s is an excerpt from an article, written by the late Dr. L.J. Freed, whom I never met, but did have the pleasure of speaking with one of his great friends--an English nutritional therapist. Here is what Dr. Freed wrote in his 1999 paper, entitled “Do Dietary Lectins Cause Disease?”.
The Lectin Detox - Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that all of life is an experiment and the more experiments you make the better. My name is Matthew, and when I was four years old, I ate a chocolate-peanut brownie made by my best friend’s mom in a kindergarten class. Within minutes, my skin turned blue, I was sitting by myself in the corner, and a parent volunteer noticed that something was wrong. Luckily, I was driven to the hospital in time to receive a massive adrenaline shot; and, I still give thanks to the observant mother that day who saved my life. For decades I suffered intolerably with severe atopic dermatitis, which I was told was incurable. However, starting in January 2020, I decided to try my own experiment and even more seriously restrict my diet. I cut out sweet potatoes, carrots, lettuce, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and many more foods. I left only what I believed to be the most absolutely lectin-free possibilities.
Hippocrates once said that before you heal someone, ask him if he’s willing to give up the things that made him sick. My name is Matthew, and I have almost died twice from anaphylactic reactions to lectin proteins. I suffered intolerably for many years with severe atopic dermatitis, and I was told repeatedly, by medical professionals, that I would never heal. Doctors told me that I was genetically broken, and that my immune system was insane...attacking and injuring itself, and they proceeded to suppress my immune system. At the same time, they put me on a strict “tolerance” diet of heavy lectin rich foods. It wasn’t until I learned to recognize and give up these poisonous foods that I began to heal.
The Lectin Detox - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once said that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. My name is Matthew, and while I think we can all agree that the pain associated with Autoimmune disease is very real--and, if you know someone or you yourself suffer with a chronic condition...I empathize and understand--having been through decades of excruciating pain myself and having almost died twice at the hands of modern medical hubris. But, I have since recovered...and, while it took some time, I did so by uncovering the improbable truth. It may shock you to realize that the concept of autoimmunity (in other words -- the idea that the human body can and does attack itself) is relatively new. In fact, before the early 20th century, it was generally accepted that the immune system was unable to react against the body’s own tissues. The belief was known as “Horror Autotoxicus”--that the human body was incapable of attacking itself...and, in fact, had a real aversion to doing so. To date, there are about 80 autoimmune diseases: everything from lupus to eczema to arthritis to MS to celiac, etc.. In every case, experts admit to not having a clue as to the cause. Perhaps Dr. Kathleen Gilbert, an immunologist and retired professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, says it best: They are just too “mysterious”. No one really knows the “cause”, the etiology, of autoimmune conditions--and the only way to solve the ever expanding numbers of people “developing” incurable autoimmune disorders, is to create pharmacological therapies which modulate or weaken the individual’s immune system. Of course, the invention of autoimmune theory spawned a billion dollar industry...one that is currently worth 3.28 billion dollars, and expected to grow to 7.95 billion and beyond by 2025. Autoimmunology is one of the best returns on investment around.
The Lectin Detox: Albert Einstein said that the very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” My name is Matthew, and for over 30 years I suffered intolerable chronic pain from severe atopic dermatitis and other related “immunological” issues. I have almost died twice from anaphylactic reactions caused by lectin proteins--once when I was in kindergarten and my best friend’s mom made chocolate peanut brownies (which I ate), and enjoyed, but minutes thereafter, my skin turned blue, I lost consciousness, and I was driven quickly to hospital, where I was given a massive injection of adrenaline--this shot left a scar on my arm for decades afterwards, and the doctor said that I had hardly any oxygen left in my blood. Over the years, I tried all the pharmaceuticals...hydrocortisone, betamethasone, protopic, fucidin, hydroxyzine, salbutamol, nalcrom and many, many more. I had tubes put in my ears, yet, as I got older my health issues worsened, substantially. I started looking into the side effects the drugs I was using, and slowly learned that many of the their side-effects actually included the very health issues they purportedly were trying to solve. Many eczema creams could actually cause eczema. Many inhalers could actually cause asthma.
