Has anyone here ever tried a lectin-free diet?

My family has been reaping the benefits but I was wondering if anyone else has seen success (or not) with cutting out lectins.

Dr Gundry is a big fan of a Lectin free diet. There are also some supplements on the market that help you digest foods with lectin in them.

I personally recovered from a brain injury by reducing foods that were stressful to my gut and boosting gut-healing foods with the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. I am not a GAPS practitioner and have seen people with all sorts of issues improve their situation with this diet.

I am a big believer in reducing lectins for folks who are having digestive and brain issues. Lectins are really tough on the gut and can trigger inflammation and immune response. Once a lot of gut healing has happened I find that re-introducing foods with lectins that are properly prepared can be fine. These foods aren't the devil, they are just not helpful for someone who is "in a deficit" and needs to do some healing. :)

Things I have seen improve in my clients by reducing lectins: IBS, ADHD, Autism, MS, Anxiety, Depression, OCD, brain fog, fatigue, food sensitivities, post nasal drip.
