(The interview is by Jackie Abramson, his happy mother!)
BR: Introduce yourself!
JA: Jared Abramson, will turn 3 on 7/11/02. The entire family is Type A, so it was easy to incorporate diet.
BR: Give us a global insight of your health(-problems). Are there any diseases running in your family?
JA: No diseases that run in family.
BR: How did you find out about the blood type diet (I rather call it way-of-life!) Was it through friends, colleagues, health practitioners, or other?
JA: I had been constantly complaining to my mother every time Jared was sick. She would always ask me what his doctors said, which was ‘young children get sick all the time.’ She was speaking to her chiropractor and he recommended your book which she sent to us, and overnight we changed Jared's diet.
BR: How did you get started? Was it gradually, or did you opt for the cold-turkey-version?
JA: We started cold turkey, threw the milk and cheddar cheese out and shopped for soy and rice milk, part-skim mozzarella, spelt bread, etc. Very easy, my son took the bottles of soy and rice milk right away, did not even notice a difference!
BR: How long did it take to notice change in your son?
JA: I noticed a change with Jared's bowel movements immediately. Prior to giving him milk at age 1, he was breast fed, which gave him the typical loose stools. After putting him on milk, no change, his diapers were always full with loose stools - I didn't even think there was anything strange about it. Immediately after stopping the ingestion of cow's milk, he had normal (solid) bowel movements, I couldn't believe it. Now I realize that his system was not really able to handle cow's milk! If I hadn't changed his milk, I never would have known! The next change I noticed was that he stopped getting sick.
BR: Was it easy to get started?
JA: Very easy to start, all the same type of blood. My purpose of starting was to have a healthy child - I was helpless watching him get sick all the time.
BR: Your family, how did they react to your following this Blood Type Program? Are they supportive, tolerant or negative?
JA: Everyone was extremely supportive and I tell everyone about the book and what changes Jared has experienced since his change of diet.
BR: How many blood types are there in your family? Is it easy to prepare foods, or is it time consuming. How do you manage?
JA: One type, very easy.
BR: Is Eating Right 4 Your Type easy or difficult when you are at work, at a restaurant?On the road? Looking at your diet: what was easy to integrate into your basic diet, what still gives you problems?
JA: Very easy to eat out. Can order chicken and fish anywhere. Easy to purchase soy and rice milk at any supermarket. Travel with the small box containers - easy to make bottles - don't need refrigeration.
BR: Was your medical practitioner supportive? Could you convince him/her of the positive impact of the BTD on your son’s health?
JA: I have not even had a chance to tell Jared's doctors since we have not been to see them in about 7 months!! We just moved also and now he will be seeing new doctors.
BR: The area you live in: Is it a problem or not to find the organic/green foods/meats you need?
JA: We live in suburban NJ. Very easy to locate organic products. Notice huge differences in prices from North Jersey to South Jersey (So. Jersey being more expensive!!!) Trader Joe's is a great place to stock up on spelt bread!
BR: Are there any other experiences you had following this way-of-life, you want to share with us? Now you have the chance!
JA: The best experience is after watching Jared getting sick every other week- literally and twice, catching back to back viruses (and constantly catching everything everyone else had) to now having him 6 months of not one day sick - is the BEST! We had even traveled and stayed with family who were all sick and he didn't get sick! He is healthy, thriving and I am so happy my mother sent me this book! This has changed our always sick little boy to a wonderfully healthy boy! Thanks a million!!!!!
BR: Being a mother myself as well, I so do recognize the feelings of grief, sometimes of anger, of not being in control of your kid’s health despite all the ‘right’ efforts on your side. The feelings of irritation of all the ‘good’ advice people give you. And as a consequence the stress a sick child imposes on the parents and grandparents. Jackie, you have a wonderful mother! She gave you the only right advice. Great that Jared responded immediately to eating right. Jared looks like a healthy, naughty guy with loads of life in him. All the best for all of you!!
I've been somewhat a heavy drinker and as a result, drinking regularly drained my physical and mental energy. After juicing for about 2-3 weeks everyday I noticed that my body and mind was full of energy and was not getting so tired anymore. My whole family is type A and changing our diet brought more smiles and more productive lives.
My mother is 63 years old and was complaining all the time that her body was aching not lack of energy. I reallized that her blood was thickening and was not getting efficient blood circulation through her body. She too feels alot better physically and mentally after changing her diet.
I wonder - was Jared fed breast or formula as a baby. I am just trying to put together and article that compares breast with formula and wondered if there could be a connection here.
It's too bad they don't teach this book in Med schools. When was the last time you went to a doctor with a complaint and he asked you about your diet? NEVER, and they should because many of the foods we eat are wrong for our blood types and the body is trying to tell you that with all your symptoms.
All they offer you is pills, surgery and MRI's etc when a simple change of diet is all that is required.
Of course Big Pharma can't make any money that way, so diet change is not even considered.
I became a total believer when after drinking two bottles of red wine one night I had no ill after effects, while after drinking beer I always paid the price especially as I got older.
For type A's Beer (wheat products and it's derivatives)is poison, while red wine is like a medicine for me, as DR, D'Adamo said,- highly beneficial.
Another convincer for me was that I notice that if I drink a glass of tomato juice (an avoid for type 'A') I'll get gout in my big toe within 5 minutes.
Keep telling your friends about this wonderful information. It makes total sense and it totally works.
Sincerely, Robby Smink
