I have already explained how having a leaky gut puts you firmly in the autoimmune spectrum. That is why curing your gut is the first pillar of my protocol. Now is the time to make some changes that will make your bowel again have a good state of health. One of the best things you can do is stop eating foods that are causing more inflammation and damage to the intestinal tract. Avoiding grains and legumes is important in the process of reversal of inflammatory diseases. Do you want to know why? Read on to understand the reasons and consequences.

Avoid gluten and lentils if you have inflammatory diseases
What is gluten?
Gluten is a group of proteins found in cereals like wheat, semolina, spelled, rye, kamut and barley. That’s what gives the bread its sticky, doughy texture, but that’s not the only place you’ll find it: gluten is used as a food additive in almost all processed foods, from salad dressing to ketchup tomato sauce.

You may wonder how something so common could be harmful to your gut, would not we all be sick? Well, unfortunately, chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer or autoimmune diseases have become “trendy” and rates are increasing. Gluten has been associated with more than 55 diseases, and it is estimated that 99% of people who are already celiac or non-celiac with gluten sensitivity are never diagnosed.

How does gluten cause leaky gut?
In Autoimmune Solution, I explain in detail how gluten contributes to a permeable gut that leads you to the path of autoimmune disease. It stimulates the immune system to attack its own tissues, is not easy to digest and contributes to trigger imbalances such as overgrowth of Candida and SIBO. But even more damaging is gluten’s ability to trigger the production of zonulin in the body, a protein that can indicate tight junctions between the bowel cells that open and remain open.

The problem with grains and vegetables O
wheat is not the only one. Other grains, pseudograms (like quinoa) and legumes, contain similar proteins that contribute to the permeable gut and worsen inflammatory diseases in several ways:

To damage intestinal cells
, opening the tight junctions of the intestinal mucosa
to Feed Harmful Bacteria to Create Intestinal Disbiosis

The edible part of these plants is the seed, which contains the embryo. To transmit your genes, a plant produces its own chemicals to ward off pests and prevent digestion. These chemicals can be very harmful to a person with an autoimmune disease or also called inflammatory diseases. I highlight some in particular:

Chemicals in plants that worsen inflammatory diseases
Lectins are plant proteins that bind to carbohydrates. The two types of lectins in particular, which are known to cause a problem in humans, are aglutinins and prolamins.

Agglutinins function as a natural insecticide and can be an aggravating factor of inflammatory diseases. The effects of lectins within our bodies may be subtle and difficult to recognize, but some agglutinins are incredibly dangerous. Ricin, a castor bean lectin, is fatally toxic, even in very small amounts.
