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.
