A friend of mine who is a type O eats quite a bit of yogurt and sometimes kefir  
I've told her that according to Dr. D'Adamo it's an avoid but she insists that it helps her especially when she takes antibiotics ... I was wondering what I can suggest to her as a replacement to yogurt/kefir that has the same benefits ?

What do O's do ??

Thanks very much

Has she tried taking PolyFora O? That would be the best thing. Or any other probiotic?

Nope ...  
furthermore, she doesn't really  follow the bloodtype diet; however,  I'm trying to change that slowly  

What do O's eat that replaces yogurt/kefir in general ?

Thanks  MoDon

You may find this interesting:

They mention fermented soy and some fruit (juices) as probiotic sources.

O's use less fermented foods than the other types.

Remind your friend that just like different people have different blood types, the different types have different strains of probiotics that are domnant.  Ask your friend how she knows she getting the right strains that are naturally occurring in her body?   This might get her to thinking about it.

Hope this helps.

Yes, and if I remember correctly, Dr says that taking the wrong type of probiotic is like taking none at all.     anyone else remember that?

did she ever think that the yogurt and kefir is contributing to her getting sick and hence having to take antibiotics.

If she ate right she would not get sick....I have not had to take antibiotics once since being on the diet which is over 4 years now

I've spoken to her about it yet again and told her about fermented soy and some fruit (juices) as probiotic sources that were suggested earlier in this thread, thanks

I remember right before I started the BTD I was eating a áton of yogurt and keifer with cereal mixed in. áLOVED it!! ábut my skin did not.. I had had so many huge pimples... even on my neck...I guess dairy and á the wheat just did me in... áand I was drinking a lot of coffee with milk and sugar then, too.. to give me " energy"..I think that's when I was at my lowest in terms of skin problems and fatique... which is what drove me to the BTD... áwhen I started the BTD, all that went away..
but I remember the yogurt / keifer being just deadly for me...

*sniff*  I remember my kefir days!  THe only food I really crave, besides oats.
I get wonderful raw milk from a great local farm for my A's, and I can't have any of it!!  Except the butter!
Has anyone tried fermenting stuff w/ the polyflora O?  I do a lot of fermenting, been using whey as a starter, but I'd love to get some going w/ the right "bugs". A fizzy beverage would be really great!

IB,
think this is what you were referring to...on probiotics
Quoted Text
Dr. D
Most studies show that if the strains are not chosen correctly there will be
no permanent changes to the gut from probiotic doses of any amount. As long as
you keep taking the humongous CFU formulas (and paying for them) the bacteria
will remain in there. Within two weeks of doing these formulas, the
population almost always reverts to what it was before. The idea is to use the
best strains for your blood type and include the blood type optimum
prebiotics as well.

Isn't this pretty much like throwing your money away, if it's not really helping? Sorta like putting a very temp bandage on it IMHO. I would think one would be better off to get the Polyflora even if it is a bit more expensive. IMHO
