I've been trying really hard to change over to the Genotype Diet. It's been really hard. I've been dealing with many guilt trips because I've been "cheating" alot with black dot avoids. Following the B Nonsecretor diet, though, these foods are either beneficial or neutral. At this point, I've decided to abandon the stress of trying to change to the Explorer program and will fall back to the full-fledged B Nonsecretor diet. But, I will still take the Explorer 3-pack supplements, as I feel that my liver can use all the help it can get.
I think a lot of the problem is just dealing with the post-surgical issues. I'm dealing with constant pain and burning in my right leg and it's now moving into the torso. I only get relief at nightime when I take a dose of Lyrica. It knocks me out so I can sleep. From what I can learn from my physical therapist and the internet, the pain will get worse as things wake up closer to the spinal cord.
Sorry for the downer blog. But, thought I should check in. I'm thankfull that I can still be productive and make a living.
I know how hard it is for B (sec + nons) to move on to the the GTD - and while I would have loved to go GTD full time it simply doesn´t work for me.
BUT I do use all the new easy superfoods:
like asparagus,peas, apples, pine nuts and macadamia nut etc ON TOP on my B bennies
It's not a race, there are no winners or losers. Make the change when the time is right for you. In the meantime I do hope the pain eases for you, I have spinal problems and can empathise.
I have had immediate relief from the latter type of pain (60 seconds) by using LifeWave energy patches, applied to the center of the pain (tan patch) and to the center of the chest (white patch), or by accupuncture (the patches function like needleless accupuncture). My advice if the pain seems to involve deep aching nerve pain rather than pain limited to the injury, is not to suffer or cover it up, but see an accupuncturist or try the patches. In the cases where it worked for me, the pain was relieved immediately and did not come back. You have to hit the "reset" button to turn it off. Accupuncture seems to do that. (I suspect this is similar to phantom limb pain.)
