About the Book

Most of us have heard of gluten - a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we've been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common and highly toxic plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the "gluten-free" foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. Once ingested, these proteins incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.

At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with listeners around the world.

About the Reviews

This book came highly recommended by my naturopath as I have tried so many different ways of eating over this past year. I’ve done SCD, Parasite Cleanse, Liver Cleanse and a Candida Diet. All helped me a little bit, but didn’t correct any of my issues. Since January I’ve had stomach cramps, digestive issues, face breakouts, low energy, brain fog and the list goes on. As a 33 year old stay at home Mom who has eaten a paleo diet for almost 4 years I didn’t understand why my health was failing me when I ate so healthy and slept 8-9 hours a night. The Plant Paradox is life changing. I’m only 4 days into the eating program, but can already tell a huge difference. This is the first time in almost a year I haven’t had stomach cramps all day every day. Last night was the best I’ve slept in a long time and I feel like my brain fog is lifting a little bit. I now know lectins were my issue all along as well as too much protein in particular too much beef and pork. I can’t wait to see how I feel in the weeks, months and years to come. Thank you so much Dr. Gundry for your infinite knowledge and for putting yourself out there. Keep doing what you’re doing because change is happening and you are making a huge difference.

*if you aren’t ready to commit to buying the book listen to Dr. Gundry’s interviews with Dave Asprey, Dr. Joe Mercola, and Elle Russ on podcast because those interviews are wonderful and so informative.

Unbelievably AWESOME!!! I bought the Kindle version of this book and immediately flipped to the food list... my first thought was NO WAY!!! I could never eat like this!!!! Second thought was.. I bought this book I should at least read it!! By the time I read to the food list pages I had decided there was no way I couldn't eat like this!!! It took me a few days to empty my cupboards and refrigerator (and a lot of garbage bags) and get all the food in the house I needed to be on the program.. and then I started. In about 6 days I had a feeling of well being come over me!! It was great!! That afternoon I was at the movies and after the movie I stood up and walked right out!!! I use to stand up and it would take a couple of seconds before I could get going!! It may not seem like a big deal but with that came yard work seemed easier.. even in the hot Florida summer!! I can work hard for hours, not take any Advil, and have no soreness or tightness behind my knees the next morning!!! I stopped losing hair (was falling out like crazy!!) I see it growing in where it was getting thin!! Losing weight.. feeling great!! I think I've found the fountain of youth!!! No problem wearing those shoes that were just getting too high for me!! I can't say enough about it!!! As Dr Gundry said in a video.. just give it a couple of weeks.. Believe me.. you'll be glad you did!!!

*********************************

I don't usually write reviews, but I had to for the Plant Paradox. I've been eating whole unprocessed foods for 9 months...and not really feeling a difference. And now I know why!! I just completed Dr Grundy's Plant Paradox 3 day cleanse and I feel AMAZING!! So many things totally make sense now.
