|« And the Culprit Is..||Are you kidding? »|
Although I’ve always been privileged to have good food available, determining the best approach to eating foods for health has been an interest of mine for almost 40 years. It has been nearly that long, too, that boxed and prepared foods were a rarity in my kitchen. Unfortunately, however, our vehicles quite often still managed a trip to the local fast food joints.
Living in the far north provided an abundance of moose, caribou, several varieties of salmon, halibut, trout, and occasionally fresh seafood and fowl. Now, except for salmon and halibut, it is a rarity for us to eat those other meats. Fresh produce was (and for the most part still is) a mid to late summer fiesta. With an abundance of sunlight some vegetables grow very well, however, as the daytime temperatures are usually in the 60’s (F) most plants don’t grow well here.
Realizing as a teenager that good food is imperative to health I began a journey to study and learn about nutrition. Adelle Davis was my inspiration. Even though I tried to provide the best of food for my family and me, health issues persisted.
A real breakthrough occurred when my husband’s friend suggested I try kombucha for my asthma. I was on 6 prescriptions a day and still barely breathing. After reading a book containing studies and history of the kombucha mushroom, I decided to give it a try. It was almost miraculous! My asthma quit! I went off all medications within a week. That natural drink did what all the doctors and medication couldn’t do! God does provide for us.
That really got me to thinking, questioning, and learning even more. I’ve always wondered why some people in a community would get sick, some would die, some would recover, and some (even those caring for the sick) would remain healthy. I had also wondered why there are 4 blood types (8 if you count negative or positive). What makes people so different and yet the same?
When I first read the Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type it really made sense. When I read the Encyclopedia, I became excited! There were answers to several of my questions. Blood type does play a factor in illnesses! Wow! From that point on, I’ve been a convert! Rarely a day goes by that I don’t introduce someone to the BTD. Many people are very interested, so I give them my business card on which I write the website address. This is worth sharing with people.
