Ok, I've been on the blood type diet for 7 months now and my skin issues (KP and every type of acne there is) are seeming to get worse. I have removed dairy, red meats and chicken completely from my diet. I've been seeing a dermatologist too, with limited results. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Jensbug, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forums.
Yep, I agree.  You are prob detoxing. Hang in there, things WILL get better.
As an A, many foods change from beneficial, neutral or avoids. The more you can fine tune your diet, the faster you'll see results and the faster you'll feel like a million bucks!!

Are you taking any seaweed products? Some people have a bad reaction to the iodine in them.
(I don't remember if As get seaweed stuff or not.)

Hello to you Jensbug...welcome to the forum and the BTD way of life. So sorry for you acne problems. I am with Lola and italybound on this one being detox. Are you drinking warm water and lemon juice, at least, in the mornings when you get up? Taking some silicea for your skin should help you out also. You can buy it at your HFS. Are you totally compliant? Secretor test...yes...to make sure you are eating the right foods for you. Remember to check your labels even on items you bought before and knew they were compliant when you first started with them. Companies change ingredients quite often. Are you under stress? Yoga/meditation/tai chi are excellent for relieving stress of type A. Are you drinking enough fluids. Lots of herbal teas milk thistle/stinging nettle/dandelion/green tea to help your liver detox. Each of us, depending on the life we have led, has alot of detoxing to let out and may take longer is some. I have been doing this way of life for five years and still I detox through my skin. Skin...the largest organ of your body and everything filters out of it. Being compliant is the best way to go. At least, until you get your acne under control. That is why secretor test is so important at this stage...to finetune.
Here's to italybounds 'feeling like a million bucks'!! Keep us posted.

Debra

Jensbug,
Any time we are dealing with a chronic situation, I feel that it is very important to observe the more strict guidelines, meaning no avoids, and emphasizing beneficials over neutrals.  

Avoids promote inflammation and imbalances and will increase whatever problems are going on.
Beneficials are the foods that build health and healing.
Neutrals add to the variety of nutrition, but are nothing compared to the power of beneficial foods.  Beneficials are tonics and the highest medicine.  

To make it more smoothly through a cleansing crisis, try eating only beneficials for a couple of weeks, adhering to the frequency and portion recommendations, drinking more pure water than usual and taking deflect, ARA6, polyflora and hepatiguard



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Wow. I just want to thank everyone for the great advice!
I am under a tremendous amount of stress (Finishing my thesis and working full time) and in need on finding supplements that I don't react negatively to (every time I take new herbs/vitamins my body reacts in a not so good way  ). I've hear Vitamins A, E, and fish oils are a big benefit. I also looked over my avoids, and I found that tomatoes are on there (which are an apart of my daily South Texas diet) so I'll be axing those next. Thank you all again!

those pesky yummy tomatoes!! yep, they could be causing lots of probs. My husband is an A...........eats them like there's no tomorrow, then complains that he aches and has a big something or the other on his neck. Growing bigger by the day. If it's not from all the nightshade veggies he eats, I'd be shocked. Let us know how things go once you cut out tomatoes. Will be interesting!

I had a bad skin reaction to Bladderwrack, totally broke me out.

Soo beware of the iodine supplements, especially if your already soo sensitive to alot of supplements.

Thanks Mickey! Ya, I'm sensitive to any kind of herb/supplement/vitamin and especially prescribed and over the counter medications. My doctor doesn't know what to do with me half the time. And if I'm luckily enough to find a medication that I don't react to (in a bad way), I become immune to it very fast. Lucky me.

Fatty foods cause me to break out, even good fats like sardines or olive oil. This might be caused by low levels of the fat-busting gene intestinal alkaline phosphotase. Types As can be affected, too.

Whole nuts and egg yokes don't seem to be a problem.

Hmm, no metal fillings, but I do have the porcelain kind. And I haven't noticed a difference when adding or subtracting olive oil (my main source of fat since I cut out dairy). Skin conditions are so tricky.

One word:  YEAST

Google candida or yeast.  Read about the horrible effects it can have on your system!  

I have psoriasis on my scalp and the only thing that helps is not eating yeast or anything that can "ferment" (dairy, sugars, alcohol, vinegar).  I went yeast/sugar/dairy free for two weeks and my skin cleared up completely.  I occasionally fall off that proverbial wagon, but I know what will clear it up.  I even gave up fruit for a little while, since the sugars in fruit can ferment.

Try it. What have you got to lose?

you could definitely be on to something here. I know canidada albican yeast infection can kill you if it gets REALLY out of hand. Or that is what I understand anyway. It can get into your brain even. I remember a lady at church when I was little that always look a little crazy. They found out years later, she had c/a yeast really really bad. Dont know whatever happened to her. I do know it can make your life a living h*ll if it gets a good hold on you tho.  Great thought MzMoonpie!!

Hi Jensbug, be careful with vitamin A - try to get it from food sources, eggs, yellow squash, carrot, spinach, broccoli, as my ER4BTA book says vit A supplement may act as a pro-oxidant - speeding up damage to tissues rather than stopping it.

I have KP too and people on another thread about the subject have strongly suggested using ghee daily as a fat source, which I am going to try - I'm making my ghee tomorrow!

hope you find relief from the skin problems soon

Do a little reseach.  Candida affects everything.  Not just your typical woman's "yeast infection".  Certain antibiotics also cause a yeast overgrowth.  Yeast lives on things that can ferment, like I mentioned earlier.

Hmm, I never thought of yeast being an issue. So no sugar or beer. This will be a test of will power. I love my swedish fish and sam adams!

brewers yeast
is a good source of DNA and RNA,
yeast species in brewers yeast kill Candida.
Candida can only live in humans. It cannot
live in plants and things.
caprylic acid  diet improves the bowel balance, which
"crowds out" the yeast.

Well, if brewer's yeast is good for killing Candida, isn't it okay then to drink beer? (I have one every evening to increase my night-time milk supply for my very thirsty baby who seems to want to "stock up" in the evening.)

I have unfortunate news for you---I've been on the BTD for a couple of years now and I still have acne. Boils, on bad days, not just the little ones. Onions, my most recently discovered culprit, causes tons of the little ones, but any nightshade (tomatoes is the least of the problems, but still a problem) causes them to be absolutely horrible. Huge, painful, gooey boils that can last months. (They used to last a year or more. I can look back at middle school pictures and see, two or so years in a row, a couple of particular big ones on my neck--they last the longest. No doctors, alternative or not, have been able to give helpful advice. The BTD got rid of all skin issues for several months after I began it, then it came back gradually, though it's certainly not as bad as it was pre-BTD.

Thank you all for the helpful advice about detoxing the liver with herbal teas. I'll try all those. Also, I have a question about sugars. I'm entirely yeast, dairy, and sugar free, but I do use agave nectar. And I eat dried fruit (particularly fond of unsulfured apricots) and some fresh fruit. Should I cut those out just in case I have Candida? It encourages me that it might be as easy (ha) as getting rid of Candida. I'm almost 30. I shouldn't have acne anymore. All my siblings got rid of their acne by the time they were 20. (My cousin, who is my age and a type B, had acne also until she started the BTD a couple of years ago. She knows it's tomatoes that caused hers. But hers is all gone now, unlike mine.) Incidentally, if I so much as even touch a pepper, or inhale pepper oil while they're cooking, I will break out as if I've ingested them (also, nightshades cause temporary depression and paranoia, but that's another story). Jensbug, you might want to be cautious about even being around them. I'm tempted to throw out my husband's Tabasco in the fridge just in case there's some pepper germs on the outside of the bottle and my hand brushes it as I'm reaching for my tofu. My continued mild acne makes me wonder if I'm somehow having tiny indirect contact with nightshades, no matter how careful I'm being. Maybe I'm smooching with my husband after he's eaten Tabasco, not realizing he's contaminated.

Jensbug, if you figure out what gets rid of yours, will you let me know?

BTW, what's silicea?  

BTW also, I'm taking L-tyrosine for underactive thyroid.  Could L-tyrosine be taken from iodine, which I'm possibly allergic to?  I only take it off and on...
