Here you go Ig--Gundry's presentation at AHA Scientific sessions, March, 2018

https://lectinfreemama.com/autoimmune-remission/

95 of 102 patients achieved complete resolution of autoimmune markers and inflammatory markers within 9 months. The other 7 patients had reduced markers, and not a single patient had no changes. 80 of the patients weaned off all immunosuppressants and other prescribed medications, with no rebound effects.

Thanks for causing to me to spend Saturday evening revisiting Gundry.. Seeing the above, I will continue to highly recommend Plant Paradox for all with autoimmune disorders.

JANE, I think this an utterly valuable, honest scientific debate, not a brawl. In any event I am in total agreement on the value of anecdotal evidence and the difficulty of establishing sound nutritional guidelines. We are prejudiced, at least I am, since we have good reason to believe the food pyramid was bunk. I think the keto and Atkins diet may be efficacious largely because it reduces food intake and hunger, especialy among those addicted to sugarly, carb heavy foods.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Iggy,
I don’t want to get into your fight, but since you don’t need to go on a diet, why do you care?--

I thought I was in a discussion, but whatever I'm in, I shouldn't care unless I have to lose weight or have some condition that needs reversing?
Everybody has a diet. I'm not all that concerned with how long I live but I'd like the best chance to be mobile and of a sound mine when I check out. So I look at the claims of what people say make that most likely and I check out what support there is for it.
I learned the hard way in court, in tax issues, in forestry, in firearms, in tiddlywinks and yes even in medicine to not trust anything anyone tells me without verifying it, no matter how expert they are and no matter how many letters they have after their name.
If you don't have sound, solid evidence you have no idea what you have. Surely a lawyer gets that.

#BREAKING Saudi 'willing and able' to respond to attacks, crown prince tells Trump

The Infamous Ignatz

OK, that's a start, in fact I think you either cited it before or I read it before at his site, but as the author said;

A responsible researcher would say we need more trials, bigger sample sizes, control groups, and a greater array of autoimmune diseases to confirm that a lectin-limited diet can cure autoimmune disease. The responsible researcher in me agrees with this statement.

she also said this;
An autoimmune patient would say “SIGN ME UP.”

I've said that before too. What does someone have to lose since there is little treatment for autoimmune diseases. If I had heard of him when I had sarcoid I probably would have given it a shot too. I have never said he might not be right, including today, only that non anecdotal evidence is scant to non existent. A non controlled, non double blind, and from the sound of it not actually diagnosed group of patients isn't exactly the gold standard of clinical trials.

Ig, what we are discussing here is your blowing Steve Gundry off as a snake oil salesman, based on your--what? Deciding since so many people eat lectins without a problem, his concluding that they appear to be the cause of enormous trouble for some because of stimulating an immune response to human proteins is a lie?

You--and everybody reading this-- well know NO food studies are double blind in nutrition; few are even controlled.

And what do you mean undiagnosed patients? Being on immunosupressant drugs doesn't happen without vials of blood work and a diagnosis. What makes you disparage Gundry's results by suggesting that the patients weren't diagnosed?

You know not one thing about this guy, yet you accuse him of lying for profit.
But charging people $300 for a fasting kit with hibiscus tea and protein bars in it--that's some kind of social good?

If I practiced medicine over the internet, I would conclude
you've got Gundry Derangement Syndrome. But I don't do that.
I am puzzled--mystified--at the etiology.

A quick look on the IT shows substantial criticism of Dr Gundry although most say his general clais may be of use to those with certain autoimmune diseases. His many supplements are particularly drawing fire.

jimNJ-

China's Achilles Heel is cash flow. Stop that and then it be comes food, then water. Luxuries give way to base needs, every time, and it's a very short walk between the two.

clarice

I think so, Melinda

The Infamous Ignatz

Why don't you turn it down a notch or two, lady?
You don't get to imply I'm sick because I ask a guy making extraordinary claims to come up with some evidence.

--You--and everybody reading this-- well know NO food studies are double blind in nutrition; few are even controlled.--

I quoted the very source, a fervent Gundry supporter, you linked who said that needed to occur. Your source, not mine.
But as a for instance he substituted pro-biotics and other supplements. Wouldn't a proper study have included a control group who had those supplements but didn't eliminate lectins?

--And what do you mean undiagnosed patients?--

Dr. Gundry tracked 102 consecutive patients with proven markers of autoimmune activity (rheumatoid factor, antinuclear antibodies, etc…) and biomarkers of inflammation. Patients showed signs and symptoms of:
Showed signs and symptoms of is not the same as have. The language is curious. Doesn't mean they weren't but without access to the study how do we know how elevated any of these markers were?

--You know not one thing about this guy, yet you accuse him of lying for profit.--

I may have said that but I doubt it. I said he has a conflict of interest, which is a very different thing. And I do know he is pretty much the only guy saying this stuff. Now that may mean he is the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Or it may mean he has gone down a rabbit trail. He would certainly not be the first smart sincere guy to have done so. And since I don't know anything about him maybe he is a crook. I don't know that anymore than you know he isn't, cause all you know about him is you read a book he wrote. Angels write books and bums do to.


--Deciding since so many people eat lectins without a problem, his concluding that they appear to be the cause of enormous trouble for some because of stimulating an immune response to human proteins is a lie?--

When did I say it was a lie? I said, maybe he's wrong and maybe he ought to provide some evidence for his claims. Moreover he doesn't just conclude lectins are an autoimmune problem, does he? They supposedly cause heart disease and neurodegenerative diseases and obesity and diabetes. For all I know they do all that. For all you know they don't.
What the hell is wrong with asking somebody to back up their frickin claims?


Instead of diagnosing me, why not ask yourself why it is some stumpheaded goof who spent his life mucking about with diesel fumes, chainsaws and dirt is more skeptical and more interested in guys making extraordinary medical claims backing those claims up with some frickin evidence than you are. And while you're at it maybe you could ask yourself why you're so emotionally invested in putting me in my place for asking for some evidence.
As I said before I'll be happy to be proven wrong and that he does have all sorts of science backing him up. And I'll be happy if his diet works for every person who tries it.
Until then he's just somebody saying something.
And you're somebody coming pretty close to going over the line, for no good reason, in what was and should be a rational discussion.

Melinda

I’ll note one distinction on Lechtins that seems to be slid over, beans aside. Tomatoes, when NOT fully ripe and potentially not local, will contain lechtins. Grow them yourself and eat when ripe might be a little more common to a lot of foods, when you think about it.

A different angle of attack.

Narciso79

So its a ponzi scheme guarded by the army, which i think they took some tips from the japanese control group.

Melinda

How many gangs can control a member of the ruling committee? One each? Overlap? How do you solve conflicts within the committee?

Are we back in Chicago already?

Narciso79

A gang is a private militia and an army is a public concern, now they can repurpose

Melinda

Isn’t an army a more disciplined and purposeful gang, just with the conveyed consent of the governing?

jim nj

Melinda,

I just thought that article was interesting because people don't normally think about water being a weakness of China. I mean China has some huge rivers, but looking at a map the US has a better distribution of rivers than China.

And I was thinking of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. At the bottom is physiology - water, food, warmth, rest, clothing, shelter, etc. and the means to acquire them.

So I think we're on the same wavelength.

China has an insufficient supply of water, with a poor distribution of that supply, an insufficient supply of arable land with which to feed it's people, and with out its export cash flow its financial system will collapse. Making it even harder at the physiological level to eke out an existence.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs

And the Chinese system lops off the top of the pyramid - self-actualization.

So not to argue with you, but even without a change in cash flow, we are seeing problems at the physiological level already The hog production and disease issue. The lessening of the food supply due to what, bugs, I think.

Melinda

Stop.

With cash, luxuries exists. Without it, the availability of water might not even exist.

jim nj

I think that Trump was correct in confronting China on the trade imbalance, but the hand of G-d seems to be at his back, with the confluence of internal Chinese problems popping up in the same time frame.

Narciso79

They have many critical nodea, of course its not proper etiquette to point them out, they have exploited our gaps in the opm and through equifax then theres huawei, who george soros now declares he is the true scotsman againdt them.

jim nj

Melinda,

It's a command economy. Water will continue to exist without a drought. Food might not, because even a command economy can't fight Mother Nature's scourges.

We usually agree, but I don't understand why you are focused on cash flow and luxuries, when Chinese revolts have usually been caused by much baser needs.

Captain Hate

Mel,

Thanks for pointing out the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park, which we were able to visit on a free afternoon to wander about. We got there just in time for an entertaining tour, in which I was able to tell the guide that she was thinking of a cheval de frise when describing what the 54th Regiment faced in their hopeless attack.

Going back a step I think we are saying the same thing in a different manner.

I have no problem with the above assertion.

Maybe you're looking at from the top-down and I'm looking from the bottom-up.

Said another way, it looks to me that the purchasing of food budget is going up and that leaves less money for other things.

Or are we arguing about unrest or collapse. China has to worry about both.

jim nj

Jim S,

I'm intrigued with the Keto diet, but I can't stand fat. Well, maybe, some forms, but I can't masticate fat or gristle, only lean meat.

I chew food longer than most people do, and fat and gristle get spit out. I can't stand the mouth feel of something that can't be reduced by chewing.

It may be genetic, when my father was in his 50's he couldn't process fat either. A little too much fat and his stomach would reject it with a gag response.

My take on this is that the official dietary advice is wrong. How you correct that will vary with individuals.

Try an alternate diet, if it doesn't work for you, try another until you find one that works.

Evidence or anecdotes? There is very little of the former and lots on the latter.

Different individual stomach microbiomes are likely. For me that raises an interesting question - is it diet or microbiome environment. Or an interaction between the two?

So do you fix the diet or the microbiome? How can you do scientific tests if the microbiome varies among people?

Since we can't currently standardize all microbiomes, anecdotal evidence from people suffering from similar conditions may be more useful. If there are enough observations.

IOW, all the "science" done to date is useless, because we only learned about microbiome differences recently. None of the "standardized" evidence to this point is valid if you assume that all stomachs work the same way. Apparently, they don't.

I don't want to touch off another war, but I hope people will consider this.

It just seems to me at this point, that we can't tell if gut biota or diet is more important. Should we change gut biota first, or can changes in diet create the same effect by killing off "bad" biota and encouraging "good" biota?

Does that make sense?

anonamom

jim nj, yes, you make total sense--which is why Ig's outright dismissal of as well as his call for gold standard science from--double blind studies!-- Garvy, while accepting Longo's observational studies based suggestion as to daily diet as credible based on the long lived peoples who live near oceans (they eat fish, we should eat fish; they eat a small amount of grains (pasta) so we should too) does not. For all we know, it's the trace minerals they absorb from breathing salt air that is the cause of their longevity via influences on their gut biome!

Yes, every single being is going to have his own unique response to outcome of the calories in that chocolate covered donut it appears. And biome may be why, or at least a big factor.

There is not no science---we know how glucose triggers insulin, what insulin does--but how many of those calories get diverted to fat deposition, how many feed bacteria, how many just transit on down--that will vary. How strong an inflammatory response gets triggered is likely modified by other hormones, especially stress hormones, that are circulating at the same time. Even time of day ingested, and the state of muscles--recent exercise-- influences it.
The variables, as Ig noted when he compared nutrition "science" to climate "science," are huge--and they all do matter.

Which is why this sounds like two of the 54 Lutheran Synods fighting over whether the 'Bible says' women can be on the parish council or not, likely why these food fights are so vociferous.

We all have eyes, and see the massive amount of obesity that envelops us. It happened in forty year's time. In the five years I was training, I took care of ONE patient who weighed over 300 pounds. He was memorable, because it was a unique experience. I absolutely do not go a week at work any more without doing so---and plenty of them who weigh in between 200 and 300. We now own OR tables that will support 600 pound people--because they exist.

Do they all just need an enema and to repopulate their bowel flora with a stool transplant from one of those "naturally thin" guys, like Ig, IIRC---a guy who has to work to keep weight on? Or will getting the weight off them change their bowel flora??? Chicken/egg.

But a person does have to start somewhere, and observational studies of long-lived peoples as well as "anecdotal" ones from now hundreds of thousands of people who have eliminated processed carbs and "cured" their metabolic syndrome--obesity, DM Type 2, hypertension, brain fog--is where you can do so in the nutrition world.

There seems to be a strong argument that "shutting your pie hole" may be an effective measure, which is why TRE (time restriced eating) and IF (intermittent fasting) are now being advocated so strongly by people like Jason Fung, who is looking for RESULTS NOW for his patients whose diabetes is causing renal damage and pushing them towards dialysis in the coming year.

Longo's research with yeast, worms, and mice supports it for longevity as well. And as many here have attested, stopping blood sugar swings by minimizing carbs and being satiated from eating fat allows most humans to eat dinner and stop the grazing. To return to the days of our childhood, when the kitchen closed after supper, and didn't open for 12 or 14 hours. (Yep, that's what they now call Intermittent Fasting).

That's what you get when you stop teaching facts and history and basic values for a couple of generations - the prog voter base that demands all those things.

And Dem leaders who think they will be able to deny energy, meat, any freedom of behavior or thought, to the rest of us, and we'll just sit here and put up with it forever, while they rule over us and enjoy all the things they say we can't have.

Blend transition season came a bit early this year with those few US refinery fires (just like the Aramco one? Funny, that similarity). Now, if they would just eliminate some of those “mandatory regional additives”, we might get the costs, pump AND environmental, down some more.

I really don’t like what I currently know about MBTA and I’d like to know a bit more from less rabid sources.

Nice distillation, Clarice, well done and thank you.

Now the Radical Left Democrats and their Partner, the LameStream Media, are after Brett Kavanaugh again, talking loudly of their favorite word, impeachment. He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY. Such lies about him. They want to scare him into turning Liberal!

Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for liable, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue. The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!

Jack is Back!

I love how Trump uses mis-spellings to troll the progs: Spelling libel as liable:)

CH-

The Saint-Gaudens house & gardens was such a pleasant surprise when we went, on an afternoon lark. Noting how the summer sunset was going to unfold for anyone who was there, really drove home the importance of place when considering a homesite. I’m still captivated, in my mind’s eye, of the cloaked memorial, aside from the majesty of the Shaw & 54th’s.

Jack,

Exactly right. He posts that misspelling and all of the media can't resist pointing it out, at which point the public think "Hell, yeah, he should sue!"

This is the Republican mayor we had prior to Hogsett, the dem. He was a retired Marine officer. Video at the link.

Thanks to the work @MayorBallard did while in office, the relationship between Indiana and India has never been stronger.

Just a general observation about the food fight. I concur that it is much like climate science. Not to disparage it, just that it is a ‘system’ with countless variables. And probably no linear processes. Isolating one variable at a time and attempting to plot a short curve segment is nearly futile, not for lack of value, but for presuming mathematical precision. After our discussion three years ago about the biome when I came back with an apparent change out from Eastern Europe, I’m convinced that the biome may be the ‘black box’ in the middle of the experiment that controls 70 pct of the whole process and is essentially a complete unknown.

So, as a thought experiment, is Jane’s bacon wrapped peanut butter actually just a tuning knob on the black box?
