The closest practioner in our database is a naturopath, Angela Goldstein, ND, in Lake Forest. It's a bit of a trek from you -- about 80 miles north of San Diego, near Laguna Nigel -- but it may be well worth the travel. The next closest would be in Ventura (about 8 miles north of Oxnard) and the next in Solvang, about 25 miles north of Santa Barbara just on the 101.
I hope one of these folks will fill your needs. Do call and interview the office you'd like to visit before travelling there, to get a "feel" for the people who would be involved in your treatment. There are more and more people using Dr. D'Adamo's plans in their practice all the time, and I'm sure not all of them are listed in our database. Try looking in your local phone book and asking nutritionists and health food store employees in your area if they know anyone who uses this system. You might find someone closer to home.
Cheremoya fruit has not been tested for ABO reactivity. Technically, that means it is an "unknown" and can be treated as neutral. That said, if you are facing health challenges it is wise to treat "unknowns" with caution. Don't make them your main food source. :-) An efficient, if risky, way to test an unrated food is to eat a good quantity of it in the evening, a few hours away from other food, and see how you feel. If you notice discomfort, at least you have some evidence that the food is not for you.
Thank you for writing, and good luck!
