The Bible study group that my husband and I attend had a dinner last night. The hosts grilled hamburgers, and the rest of us brought fixings. There was lettuce and tomato, and chips of course. But there were also two veggie trays and a fruit tray. I took a hamburger patty and filled the rest of my plate with veggies and fruit.
My husband and I sat down at a table. Someone looked at my plate and said, "Are you on a low carb diet?" I grinned at my husband and said, "He was hoping you wouldn't ask, because he doesn't want to hear the story again." I quickly told how I had reached the end of medical help for indigestion, and found the Blood Type Diet. One of the ladies asked, "Did it work?" I said yes, that in two weeks I was off of all the medication. "How long ago was this?" she asked, and I answered more than two years.
She and her husband are both Bs. Statistically, two Bs married to each other has to be pretty rare. I said, "Bs are the only blood type that really do well on milk." They looked at each other and laughed. "We both love milk," they said. "We drink gallons of it." Suddenly the lady got serious. Several years ago she had complications during a simple surgery. Since then she has had trouble with irritable bowel syndrome. "Would the blood type diet help that?" she wondered.
I didn't know, but this morning before we went to church I found several references to irritable bowel syndrome, and copied them along with the BTD website for her. Perhaps the Lord may use this diet to bring healing to her life as he did to mine.
