Dr. Gundry's book delves into a question as new as controversial: are we acting on the root of the problem when trying to eat healthily or are we wrong tactics? In recent times the objective of food trends has been clear: we must avoid gluten.
However, the prestigious cardiologist and cardiovascular surgeon Steven R. Gundry explains in The Plant Paradox that gluten is only one of the varieties of lectins, potentially toxic and inflammatory proteins that cause weight gain and serious health disorders and they are found not only in grains such as wheat, they are also in the "gluten-free" foods that most people consider healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and conventional dairy products. Our organism is not able to digest these proteins adequately, which are found in seeds, grains, skins, peels and leaves of plants, and their frequent consumption can damage the lining of the digestive system.
Dr. Gundry has successfully treated thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxifies cells, repairs the intestine and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers from around the world, with specific plans for vegetarians, vegans and sick people.
