QUESTION: Firstly, FYI - followed type A diet and my tumour markers in blood dropped first time in 4 years after tumuour removed. Thank you!!! Second - type 'A' what do I need for obsessive thoughts?
ANSWER: That is great news, and yet again demonstrates the power of choosing foods by blood type versus the 'macromolecular' (fat-phobic/ fat-philic; protein-phobic/ protein-phillic) theories, which usually do no more than contradict themselves. With the blood type diet, you can make a difference in areas of your health not normally thought to be responsive to diet.
As far as obsessive thought patterns, this is not an easy answer. Some forms of obsessive behavior can be so severe as to hinder the performanace of routine actions. In many of these individuals, medication can help, at least initially. In type A individuals, the efficient modulation of the hormone cortisol can help temper obsessive-type thoughts. Strategies include tai chi, yoga, martial arts and meditation. Adaptogens can help improve stress response--try Korean or Siberian ginseng. The Ayurvedic herbs Ashwgandha, Brahmi (Bacopa) and Boerhaavia (Cortiguard is one formula) are well suited to type A's when under stress.
