I'm afraid my blogs may be a bit of a glass-half empty sort of thing. If that's the case, I apologize. I do have some weird health issues, food intolerances, and stress at times, but nothing that gets in the way of doing everything I want to do. As is often the case wit non-secretors, I have more potential for health problems, but at the same time, I'm one of the healthiest people I know! ... Thanks to the BTD. I have lots of energy, I'm a healthy weight, I'm toning up nicely, my skin is clear and smooth, my digestion is reliable, my moods are resilient...
5 years ago I felt like I was twice my age, now I feel like I'm 1/3 my age...that calculates out to going back by 30 years in 5. I went from not being able to keep up with most 50 year olds, to feeling better than many 20 year olds.
I love the description of Dr. Crinnion's presentation at IfHI: "Born in the wrong century: the unfortunate combination of polymorphisms and a toxic environment." That is me. Yet, the way in which we interact with our environment most intimately is through what we eat. Think about it, you take in matter from the environment, put it in your mouth, and the process begins...you chew it and tear it apart in every way so as the make the most contact with it possible, then it goes into your intestine which has a huge amount of absorbent surface area covered with very sensitive and vulernable villi cells, whose job it is to distinguish food from poison and try to absorb only the food portions. Can't get more intimate than that. To your mouth it's just food, to your villi, it's survival. Respect your villi, and you will be rewarded!
