This book has all the information I needed to cure my eczema two years ago.
After 7 months of not having skin in both hands, visiting 2 dermatologist and an allergist to run a 3 day test on my back
with no results. I contacted YouTube bloggers about eczema and the answer was, it will take 3 years for your eczema to heal.
I started to fast for 3 days on water and somehow I could see the start of a recovery. That made me understand that I had a problem related to food I thought I was eating healthy, because I had followed the Paleo diet for few years.
The eczema created anxiety and fear of loosing more skin without knowing how to get back to normal.
On a lucky day I was listening Dr. Mercola interview Dr. Gundry regarding his new book, and I could relate to what he was saying. The same day I bought his book and read it in two days, I started the 3 days detox and followed the diet “ it took me 27 days to completely recover my hands “ plus other benefits like getting read of a knee pain, not having cravings on sweets, etc. I am convinced that the Plant Paradox diet is saving me from other illness.
At the beginning of the Pandemic I started to bake and cook foods that are rich in lectin, like most of the people and my eczema came back.
Thanks God and Dr. Gundry, I got back on the diet and I recover my hands again. It’s been 3 months since I started the diet and my immune system is strong, Is my responsibility to keep my body clean of lectins.
This diet totally agrees with my body and the recipes are delicious! it doesn’t hurt to try it, this could well be the solution to your health issues.

My parents read this book. they are trying to make other people read it. but i am a 63 pound middle schooler being forced to abide by rules meant for weight loss. i dont have any issues in my body. they are not getting foods like goldfish, cereal, and even some vegetables. these rules make no sense. what is lectin going to do to my family? i have been eating these foods my whole entire and i dont sense any problems.
Sorry if you may not agree.

It's an interesting perspective. On whether a class of people should avoid lectins.
America is having increased problems with food allergies and we have not really figured out why. Bad advice
from mainstream medicine is sometimes a real issue- as with the now reversed advice to parents about extreme peanut avoidance which was making peanut allergy more common and more dangerous.
This book makes an important contribution by illuminating a category of insults to our intestines, lectins, that we can recognize and control. Hopefully without creating a hysteria that makes problems worse.
I always respect evolutionary explanations of medical problems. Humans adapted during the stone age to conditions, and plants and animals around us also have their evolutionary pressures.
Dr. Gundry points out that plants that don't benefit from being eaten usually try to prevent that by being hard-on-the-stomach. Small seeded plants in particular.
While healthy humans can usually deal with plants attempts to kill us, not everyone has great intestinal resilience. And continued inflammation can accelerate a host of autoimmune issues.
Folk cooking traditions sometimes embody a knowledge of this. The old Italian practice of dealing with tomatoes for example. Parboil, skin, remove seeds, boil overnight... make a lovely sauce that won't cause intestinal aggravation.
Good writing. Easy to follow advice. If it doesn't work for you, you'll know quick enough.
