I was at work this week when a fellow co-worker, also an A+ like me, was telling me about how she ate a banana that morning. I told her that while bananas are full of great nutrients, they are not good for type As and showed her the Typebase page. Next thing you know, the entire rx staff was checking out the page and bashing the idea that red meat was bad for them and how could this fruit be bad, etc? It dawned on me once again that before attempting to teach anyone about fine-tuning their diet based on blood group, you have to start with the basics. BABY STEPS. Common sense!
The first baby step is to teach people to eat naturally. After all the initial banana commotion wore down as I tried to explain the lectin concept, I stopped myself short and said, "hey, it's like this... if you are starving and you only have a choice between eating a banana and eating a candy bar or trans fat-filled cookie, by all means, EAT THE BANANA!"
People have grown completely out of touch with their bodies. So much emotional snacking takes place. Why are people still looking at that bag of potato chips and letting it have so much power over them?
I have come to the realization that the best advice to give to anyone trying to optimize their health is to first and foremost eat foods that are alive. And to eat foods that are laced with love. Remember that chicken noodle soup mom made for you when you were sick at home with a cold? The energy of love was passed on through the food to your belly. Love and life are what make our bodies and souls beautiful when it all comes down to the nitty gritty.
This past month, in preparation for some serious spring exertion, I've been taking Floradix. I'm really intrigued to see how this affects my menstrual cycle and my energy levels. I've been trying so hard to get my cycle more in sync with the moon. For some reason, my cycle keeps extending out to 33 days. While most MDs would consider this normal, I view this as a sign that I either have an excess of estrogen stored in my system that is prolonging my menses, or it means I am deficient in some nutrient, or both. So, for now, it seems that perhaps lack of iron is the culprit. As a red meat avoider, Floradix is a great way to build the blood. I love being able to tell patients about this stuff actually. It sure beats ferrous sulfate!!!!
That's all for now. Gotta get back to things around the abode. It's above ten degrees today here in Sunny Minnesota. That calls for some celebration!
