Food’s Role In Autoimmunity | El Paso, TX.

Food: Genes that determine illness are triggered by what we put into our bodies, literally what we eat. Our cells are literally created out of the foods we put into our bodies. Like most people do, we are likely eating nutrient-poor foods that create damaged dysfunctional cells. When we learn to eat foods that nourish the body, our cells repair themselves, and the new cells created will be optimal functioning cells.

Unhealthy foods create chronic inflammation, which is destructive to the body. Inflammation is normally the body’s healthy response to injury or infection. However, when inflammation becomes chronic, from constant assault on the gut by consuming the wrong foods, inflammation becomes the cause of destructive diseases, i.e. Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Colitis and other inflammatory diseases.

Lectins

  • “By eliminating lectins, which adversely influence both enterocyte and lymphocyte structure and function, it is proposed that the peripheral antigenic stimulus (both pathogenic and dietary) will be reduced and thereby result in a diminution of disease symptoms in certain patients with RA.”

Cordain L, Toohey L, Smith MJ, Hickey MS. Modulation of immune function by dietary lectins in rheumatoid arthritis. British Journal of Nutrition. 2000;83(03):207-217.

Lectins

  • Lead to barrier damage and leaky gut increasing risk of autoimmunity.
  • Are high in grains (esp. wheat), dairy, legumes, and nightshade vegetables (eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, white potatoes).
  • Soaking, fermenting, cooking, high pressure cooking will decrease lectin content.
