Just wondering if anyone has Lectin intolerance?

I have been gluten free for 10 months maybe now and I still have syptoms, which seem to be linked to nightshades, dairy, soy, have read quite a bit of info on Lectin Intolerance and think this maybe the problem.

Love to hear form anyone with Lectin intolerance.

Thanks

Lisa

I've been struggling with lectin intolerance for several years. Just taking gluten-type foods out of my diet did not relieve all of the symptoms. When I follow my no-lectins-at-all diet, I have more energy and a lot of my symptoms go away. I have a good nutritionist who goes the extra mile helping find foods I can tolerate. Also a good naturopath.

There is some scientific research going on with this lectinism so keep researching yourself.

Maybe redo your food allergy panel. Sometimes it helps to visualize a 'Not Allowed' on paper to keep from eating that food. The blood diet can help but I'm not impressed with the anecdotal quality and the commercialism of the website/books.

Stick with whole foods - make your own soups, etc.

Watch out for hidden 'gluten's. They often put flour in with spices to keep them from caking. Look for whole spice grinders.

And, once in a while, have a 'not allowed' item. Mine is pizza (dairy,soy, wheat, etc!), but knowing I can have it every three months gives me some sanity.

Good luck,

Kathy

Hi Lisa:

Ever since your post I have been wondering about and reading about lectins. I gather it is possible to react to some but not all high-lectin foods?? Certainly I react to soy, corn and nightshades in a very negative manner, although now I have overcome my lactose intolerance, not dairy. I also tend to avoid legumes (I have a pantry full of beans and often find myself wondering why I avoid them; I believe it is a subconscious remembrance of bad reactions to them. For example, when I make my "taco-less" tacos, my husband has the refried beans but I don't :o And I used to love italian white bean salad but I never make it any more....and I never cook lentils any more. And yet I still get those nights when I am bloated with racing, erratic heart and absolutely miserable. Could it be the lectins? I am unable to associate the problem with any specific food and am wondering if it is food combinations or something else.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Interesting...I have a friend who is removing more and more foods from her diet and legumes is one of them. I never put it together with lectin however, am soy free and avoid soy lecithin at all costs. Like many I have gone lactose free which I found helpful. Thank goodness for Turtle Mountain Coconut milk products! Keep us posted I wish you luck and hope you feel better soon.
