4 Foods to Avoid: Bovine, Casein, Gluten, and (sometimes) Egg Whites

-Not easily broken down and cause immune dysfunction in some cases

-Not everyone reacts equally to all 4 of these foods, so it is important to still track!

-Food sensitivity tests are notoriously difficult to interpret in the pro-inflammatory state.

-OK to re-introduce some of these foods, when time is right.

You may consider a protease supplement (Top pick: PBenzymes.com).

Some clinicians believe it helps tremendously (but the recent research is limited).

You mean I can't eat whatever. I want not if you have Lupus hi

everyone. I'm Dr. Chan who dostery I help

my clients solve their immune inflammation and digestive dysfunction

using the Mind gut immunity method.

This clinical approach has helped thousands of patients resolve

their symptoms someone as little as six

weeks without the need for complex or costly


In this video, I'll show you exactly what foods to

avoid for Lupus to start reversing inflammation


I'll review some scientific research and go

in depth on how my patients optimize their diets

to resolve their symptoms.

This material you're about to watch is taken straight out

of my mind getting immunity Academy where people just like you learn

how to beat their lupus symptoms for good even

when the diagnosis is. Unclear

Let me just say this everyone is different.

And in order to truly know what your body can

and cannot tolerate. It's helpful to keep a

food journal monitoring food intake and symptoms is very

important for tracking the severity of Lupus. You can

even use apps now like Cara and might fitnesspal to

see your progress over time in my practice having done

this several years several foods, keep popping up

as triggers in my clients and I want to share some of these with

you so that you can be aware. We'll be discussing four specific

food groups, which can trigger immune inflammation

in conditions such as lupus I'm gonna

show you what to look out for and what to avoid. In addition.

I'm gonna give you some very useful tips on incorporating

digestive enzymes and how to plan your

approach for addressing lupus inflammation. Now

Now onto the topic of problematic Foods in

lupus the mistake, I see most people make is they

think they can just eat anything and hope that their lupus symptoms

will just go away, but frequently, that's just not

the case. Typically there's a food that's triggering

an immune response. Then that food will cause

recurring problems long term. That's why it's

very important to keep a food diary and regularly review

it to see if you catch what's going wrong. It's

amazing to see the number of easily avoidable problems

if you just pay attention and you may

be thinking so what are some of these problem foods for Lupus now,

like I said earlier everybody's different but this

research article from a few years ago shows an altered

intestinal environment is closely associated with the

inflammation scene in lupus. Now, you shouldn't be

surprised by this considering around 70 to 80% of

your immune system is contained in your gut. So

when you have an immune disease such as lupus you

need to look at what's wrong in your intestines some

Food when it's not broken down properly can trigger a

strong immune response frequently inflammation starts

in the intestine. So to heal inflammation, you

also need to heal the gut.

Before we discuss how to start doing that. If you're serious about

healing the gut for lupus and Achieve results

fast, check out a free training that I put together where I walk

you through the specific strategies that have helped my clients

with lupus achieve healthy success within six weeks.

You can access it at the link below the video and

I know what will help you so much the link takes you to a page

where you enter in your email to receive free training on how to reverse

lupus everything you need to know. Is there including a

free guide with specific dietary recommendations and tons of

helpful case studies of people just like you who

reverse their conditions for good and are now healthy

the case studies are valuable because you can see

how real people with inflammation we're able to improve their condition

by just making some small changes. The training comes with

a complete actionable game plan for how you can do this at home. Just

enter your email at the top of the page and get started now,

let's discuss what foods to avoid.

I recorded this video earlier and it discusses how the immune system

can be triggered by certain complex proteins. We eat

protein in our diets. It can come from a variety

of sources both plant and animal

a protein is basically a bunch of amino acids connected together when

the protein enters our digestive system enzymes

in our intestine break up these into individual

components called amino acids, which

then get absorbed. These intestinal enzymes are called

proteases. And the reason this is relevant is sometimes

the proteases don't get the job done and we're left

with large particles of protein that linger in

our intestines and bloodstream for long periods of time.

Why does this happen? Well certain types of protein are

hard to break down. Also, there may not be

enough protease to break down. The proteins protease enzymes

are produced by our bodies, but can also be found in many types

of plants as you already know the gut is just

one big giant immune organ. So these

incompletely digested proteins register as

a foreign threat and generate an immune

response. Basically the body thinks it's under attack by

these large undidested proteins. So then it secretes

a bunch of immune chemicals which cause inflammation and that

can be a problem. Let me give you some examples

bovine serum antibodies and autoimmune disease

There are some very famous studies that looked into this the human

body's response to beef and cow's milk.

In many people the serum protein from cows

is not broken down completely and folks end

up with antibodies. These antibodies are 10 times

more common and immune disease casein and


many folks cannot break down the casein in milk protein.

Some people also have a difficulty with the way itself.

If you're dealing with an immune inflammation, it's best to

avoid casing altogether and probably also most whey products

this includes dairy milk and cheese.

Also, check your protein powder to make sure it's not causing you

problems. I prefer a plant-based protein. But if

you decide to use whey I would recommend a way isolate

not a way concentrate which contains small amounts

of casing in it. There are some person to person variation on

this. So if you're just starting off, it's best to avoid

this all together, but once you've mastered the process you'll

be able to see how things evolve.

There is a type of casein called A2 that's a

bit easier to digest but it's hard to find and you

have to specifically look for cow's milk. That's A2. I'll

post a link in the notes section about this.


this is one is very famous because it's estimated that nearly a

third of a population has an issue with this and I

think it might be a multi-factorial problem. I'll

post a link to an article. I wrote on the topic but to summarize

I tell most folks to limit their contact with gluten containing

products in general this includes anything to

do with wheat flour.

egg protein

this one is a tough one because many people

who give up meat rely on eggs as a

source of protein some nutritionists would disagree with me

on this and I'll again post a link to help clarify this topic since

there's a lot of misinformation.

The data from several studies show that egg

protein can trigger a strong immune response in

the body specifically in folks with immune inflammatory disorders,

but not in every person. My suggestion

is to cut this out for a few months or just a little

while to see if it makes an overall difference egg whites

can sometimes be reintroduced when the time is right and I

want to be clear. I'm not saying that these foods are bad. What I'm saying

is when you're trying to decrease inflammation in the body and

you intend to do it really quickly. The best thing to do

is to limit these types of proteins in the diet short term.

It's also very important to consider taking a protease

enzyme supplement with your largest meal. You can

also get protease from plant sources. Here's a

list of foods with protease in them sprouts and microgreens

probably have the highest concentration others include

asparagus. Buckwheat, Japanese pagoda.

avocado papaya pineapple cucumber garlic

coconut flaxseed spirulina

figs Chlorella

ginger root and aloe vera

Plants contain enzymes which help break up

protein large undigested protein provoke an

unwanted immune response in our guts. So the more that they're

broken down by enzymes the better.

The enzymes that that just proteins are known as proteases and

plants produce proteases to help with fruit ripening and

seedling growth. We use them obviously to

stay healthy the names of these enzymes include Sarah

peptase natokinase catalase bromelain

and papain. These are

just examples in our diet. We hardly get enough of

these unless we're eating a ton of microgreens or Sprouts which is

why you should consider taking this protease supplement. If

you have immune inflammation next in this

category of enzymes is Coenzyme Q10, which is

found in green and leafy vegetables.

But you can also get this from a supplement.

I hope you're starting to notice a trend here green and leafy

vegetables. Hold a lot of value here across multiple phyto

categories, so to seeds and sprouts

and herbs and spices the trouble

I find is that it's hard to get a substantial amount of enzyme from

everyday food. So a lot of folks just take supplements to

help with this again not all produce supplements

are created equal and you have to

be sure that the enzymes you're ordering have confirmed activity

across a variety of pH environments because

your stomach is acidic your

small bowel is alkaline in your blood is neutral to

slightly basic. So ideally you need an enzyme

blend that functions across all three. All right. I hope

you enjoy that video now. I want to know what types

of food trigger your symptoms and have you tried

avoiding them. I know everybody's different but what worked for

some people may also work for others. Let me know in the
