Last week, I was in Portland, Oregon at the campus of National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM).  My daughter is beginning the application process to enter the dual track toward her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and Master of Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture.  We received some informative material from the Admissions office, which included the recent pamphlet from the school's Helfgott Research Institute.  I was surprised and pleased to see that there is current research on the Blood Type Diet.  I hope that the techniques they are using, will accurately test in the way that Dr. D would approve of.

"There are many factors to consider when choosing a healthy diet. . . .
Peter D'Adamo, ND, suggests that a person's blood type should also be considered.  . . .
Students at the Helfgott Institute are stydying whether specific foods can cause blood-type specific inflammation. . . (I took the liberty to do some snipping, to allow for quick synopsis)

In the study, participants fast overnight and have a blood draw in the morning.  They then eat the food of interest. Follow-up blood draws are completed one hour, two hours, four hours, 16 hours, 24 hours, and five days after eating the food.  Researchers look for inflammatory cytokines in the blood samples.
Eventually researchers hope to conduct a controlled feeding study that compares the blood-type diet to other diets."

Students at the Helfgott Research Institute are studying whether specific foods can cause blood-type specific inflammation.

integrating BTD into their study makes NCNM and other Colleges
more prestigious....like SWCNM in Arizona and I hope many more!

This is good news for my daughter.  She is passionate about the genotype diet, and was wondering if she would have to conceal this so she could get accepted into NCNM.  So many places are "One size fits all" in their approach to health, even the natural practitioners.

Even Bastyr University's dining room is vegetarian!  That would drive my family crazy!
