QUESTION: I am seriously considering attending a college of naturopathic medicine to become an ND. I am especially interested in incorporating your work into my future practice plans. I notice you are a graduate of Bastyr College in Seattle. Do you think this is the best place to get a naturopathic education and pursue investigation of your research? Thank you for your help!
ANSWER: Bastyr University is my alma mater, and whereas I think they provide an excellent education in the basics of naturopathic medicine, the nutrition department has been largely apathetic about my work with blood types. Perhaps it just verifies the old observation that 'a prophet is never recognized in their home town.'
If you are looking to pursue additonal research in field of blood type physiology and nutrition, in my opinion the best school to investigate is Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe AZ. I was recently there for a series of lectures and was surprised at the level of awareness of my work, and how many of the physicians in the area use it in practice.
In addition, there are plans on the board there for an 'Institute For Human Individuality' to coordinate research into all human polymorphisms such as ABO, secretor status and others. One of the first studies planned is a look at the effects of the blood type diet in rheumatoid arthritis.
An additional benefit is that Dr. Thomas Kruzel, a close personal friend and very experienced clinician with years of experience in serotyping, is the head of the Teaching Clinic.
