Following the BTD is usually not exceptionally difficult. I am very thankful for the beneficial knowledge that has been given to us. I’m forever talking about it and encouraging people to go that route for better health. However, occasionally there is a conflict between the foods that we know to be healthy for us and those that have something that makes a common food less healthy for a particular blood type. Sometimes I make a compromise. That is the case with the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese mixture that I use as a base for my smoothies.
I would use farmer’s cheese (a neutral) instead if it was available here, but as it isn’t, so I choose to use cottage cheese. Other alternatives are onions and garlic, but I can’t think of many uses for those combinations, especially one that my family would be willing to ingest daily. So, until I can get a supply of farmer’s cheese, cottage cheese will have to do. Also, my family is of German ancestry and we have no noticeable problems with dairy.
It was discovered many years ago that this particular combination is a powerhouse when it comes to the effectiveness of the ingredients, especially when it comes to cancers and some heart-related diseases. In 1937, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi took the “Nobel prize for his further research on biological oxidation and ascorbic acid. His work confirmed that linoleic acid when combined with sulphur-based proteins, stimulates the oxygenation process of the body.” With a family history of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes, I decided to add this to my arsenal of nutritional defenses.
Tomorrow morning, well before dawn, Bryan and I will be flying to Anchorage for a medical appointment. We’ll fly home in the afternoon. Talk with you next time…
