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.
