thanks, bhop, that's very interesting! I'll have my type A guy try it out!! :-)
Where can I find vegetable glycerin you spoke about? Can you substitute it for honey? Is it equally acceptable for all blood types? I don't know anything about it. Can you talk about it please. Maddy
Yes, it is a tasty and metabolically effective sweetener, with active balancing effects. "Heritage" and "NOW" are two brands commonly found in health food stores. It is fine for all types!
Please give the name of Pro-Biotic supplement for my type A, that I might find in a HFS. re: page 137 in BTD. Thanks much. Jim.
I can't recommend any specific brands of probiotics available in local retail establishments, but I can recommend Polyflora-A, which is sold on this site. Check the Type A Store, it's there!
Dr. D. Hello, First I wanted to personally thank for you saving my life. I was diagnosed with RA 6 years ago (suffering for 10 years, since I was 21) I was unable to walk, my doctors gave up on me and told me to get a wheelchair and go on Chemotherapy. I told them to "buzz off". Finally after searching the Internet for years on end trying thousands of products - I found out I was O type and was allergic to all wheat products. After 1 week on the diet I was Pain Free! I took lots of Omega 3/6 with my Ultra Clear shakes. Now I'm eating lots of red meat and probably too much protein and not enough fruits/veggies and fiber. What do you recommend for constipation? I bought a vita-mix blender to help make veggie/fruit shakes to get more fiber. Do I need more flora? Thank you for any help. I prayed to god to take my life or find me health from the pain I went through - thank god for Dr. D and he family's research. --Take Care-- (On the O type diet for 1 year.) -- Kevin
Kevin, that's an inspiring account! The juicing is a great idea. Get some whole flax seed and a cheap electric coffee grinder. Grind up two tablespoons of flax, soak it in just enough water to cover for 15-20 minutes, and eat it up. It's a tasty way to get plenty of fiber in your diet. You can add it to your smoothies, and a bit of fish oil added in as well can help balance your EFAs and help with your healing. Polyflora-O and ARA6, both available on our site here, are great additions to an intestinal health protocol. Remember to MOVE as much as you can, every day! Any form of exercise you can do will keep you going in the right direction. I pray that your blessings will redound on you 1000 fold, and I look forward to hearing from you as you progress!

Borlotti beans are unknown ~ butter beans and haricots may be used with our "green bean" rating ~ black-eyed bean = blackeyed pea. More potpourris coming all the time, and thanks for your kind words, Debbie!
Happy New Year to our Celtic friends, and may you all know peace and prosperity in this Harvest season! :-)
