Dr Hagmeyer a wellness and Functional Medicine Practitioner, explains How Grains, Nuts, Seeds, and Beans can be damaging to the Brain, and the Digestive system and why you may want to avoid them if you suffer with GI issues, Autoimmune problems or Low Thyroid.
Hi Everybody Dr Hagmeyer here and if you saw my last video, I mentioned that wheat gluten as well specifically WGA (wheat germ agglutinin) can cause deterioration in neurological function by means of the blood brain barriers, or digestive problem by damaging the brush border within the intestines.I mentioned how legumes, and sprouted whole grains regardless of whether soaked, boiled, heated them, are still capable of containing high amounts of lectins.
These lectins in turn can bind to your thyroid, your brain, your pancreas, your joints and they can cause the immune system to destroy these glands and tissues.
But there is much more to this evolving story!
WGA (found in wheat) is not the only lectin that can cause or contribute to the chronic health problem you or a loved one may be experiencing.
All seeds of the grass family are high in lectins. You also find lectins in beans, dairy and in the nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers).
More research this year shows how many…… non wheat grains…….. called “chiten binding lectins” are just as bad as the lectins found in wheat.
So If you have given up gluten and you are one of those individuals who say that it hasn’t made much of a change then your degree of sensitivity extends beyond just gluten but most likely to Chiten binding lectins or Cross reactive foods.
What is unique about WGA is that it can do direct damage to the majority of tissues in the human body without requiring a specific set of genetic susceptibilities.
What that means is this, unlike people who carry the gene for gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, lectins, either the kind that come from wheat or the kind that come from dairy, night shade vegetables and beans can still cause problems.
I will tell you that from my experience, and I work with some very sick people, it is rarely enough to just eliminate gluten and continue eating all the packaged foods that state they are gluten free or continue eating beans, nuts and seeds.
SO THE POINT for making todays video is this (and in just a moment, I am going to give you 5 actions steps) but if you have a gluten sensitivity, chances are your sensitive extends beyond just wheat gluten.
So what should you Do now… where do you start?
If Your Have Been Suffering With A Chronic Health Problem, Let Me Give You 5 Things You Can Do That Will Have A Massive Impact On Your Health.
- Eliminate Grains, Chiten binding Lectins, Night shades (Potato, Tomato, Eggplant, Pepper, eliminate beans, nuts, seeds)
- Get tested for Cross Reactive foods (Potato, Barley, Tapioca, Oats, Corn, Amaranth,) there is some very important information that these tests can clue us into.
- Support the inflammatory response with specific nutritional supplements and dietary changes. This will vary from person to person.
- Support the environment of the intestines. When you have adequate beneficial floras, you have a protective barrier against substances that travel through the intestines, including lectins.
- Support the blood brain barrier. Once that BBB has been breached this is where you start to see the depression, memory problems, the brain fog, the irritability and the migraines.
I realize that it is all a bit overwhelming… but hang in there!
In closing todays video, I hope you enjoyed the information I shared, if you found it helpful, please share it with loved ones and Remember healing is an inside job.
If you we don’t support the body with the right kinds of foods and the right kind of supplements you will never be able to support the SYSTEMS OF THE BODY that need help in order to heal
Simply treating disease with the CUT, BURN, REMOVE AND POISEN method is not nearly as effective as creating health by supporting the body with the proper diet and eliminating the toxins in the body.
