|« Expressing Your Fullest Genetic Potential||Back to basics »|
If you haven’t gotten Dr. D’ Adamo’s new book, “The Genotype Diet: Change Your Genetic Destiny to live the longest, fullest, and healthiest life possible” then … what are you waiting for?? It is a very interesting, exciting, and new body of work to explore.
Dr. D’ Adamo now takes us beyond blood type to explore our genetic heritage and its interplay with our own individual physiologies and how to further maximize our genetic potential in all the right ways. This new paradigm incorporates the basics of The Blood Type Diet at its core, and adds 6 new GenoTypes that refine and incorporate Dr. D’ Adamo’s interest in epigenetics: the study of how environment impacts which genes are engaged and which ones are silenced. Your own GenoType is easy to determine. If you know your blood type, Rh type and secretor type, then all it takes is a few simple measurements and you’re there!
Of the six Genotypes , persons with blood type B can be one of 3 types: the Gatherer, the Explorer, or the Nomad. I am a Nomad. And I must say that from the very beginning, my journey through the Blood Type Diet, and now the GenoType Diet has been a fairly easy one for me to integrate. When I began the BTD almost 10 years ago now, I had already been eating so-called “healthy” foods… it is just that some of them were not healthy for me. I knew what millet, spelt, quinoa, tamari, etc. was so it was just a matter of… ‘Oh, I should be eating more of this and less of such and such’ for optimal health. And I was also eating organic whenever possible and free-range/grass-fed meats. Adjusting to the B diet was not that big of a change for me. But the beauty of the B diet was not the “permission” to eat dairy. For me it was that for almost every avoid there was a suitable replacement… for chicken there was turkey, for cinnamon, nutmeg, for tomatoes, red and chili peppers, etc.
And now with the Nomad diet, I feel doubly blessed because of the 6 GenoTypes, it seems to be the closest to the B Secretor diet which I had been following. Yes, there are some changes… some very interesting changes that I am excited to explore further… but I’ll get more into that in another blog. For now I will just say that the some of changes I had already begun to shift toward intuitively. And I think that is the real gift of Dr. D’ Adamo’s work… giving people the knowledge of what real health feels like, the tools to get there, but most of all permission to “go with their gut” (pun intended :-) and trust their inner knowing in matters relating to their own health and wellness.
