One, I apologize if this has been asked before. This is a huge forum, filled with a lot of info. Anyway, I have changed my oldest son's diet in some major ways over the last two years. I did so to help with some of his issues as well as his health and that of my youngest as well. The changes were incredible but, not quite enough. My research led me here. So, here is my question, how do you manage the BTD with food protein intolerance or allergies and if you had any, did they show any signs of dissipation over time?

Thanks!

He was born protein intolerant to milk and soy. We discovered later that he was allergic to strawberries and sensitive to peanuts.

It's become increasingly harder to find what, if there is anything else that he might not tolerate because in part, his bowel movements have been erratic over the years. He would not go for days! Now it's down to every other day, which is better I guess. His functional abdominal pain is pretty much gone now after a few food changes though. He has eczema though, which in my research and experience is linked with food issues.

Milk, soy and peanuts are all not part of the type O diet.


So you are concerned with his bowel movements?

Yes! I am worried somewhere in there he's in a bit of trouble. It takes days for a bowel movements. I don't know if that's normal. All his docs say that if he's not in pain, he's fine. Only he'll eat less and less and less and then when it's moved through finally he'll eat. He is at the bottom of his growth chart and they keep testing his growth hormones because of it. So, I'm wondering if this diet works with children too. I believe I read somewhere that it does but, I could be mistaken.

Yes it works with children follow the type O diet. Give it some time buy the best food you can for him.


So much is related to gut health and the intestinal biome.

How about wheat and corn? Those are at the top of the no-go for O's. Eliminating those two things make a huge difference in O's even if they don't 'seem' to be reactive, they are horrible for us. I didn't have any digestive or bowel problems when I ate them but eliminating them made huge differences in so many ways I can't list them all. My over all health has improved greatly!

Thanks!


Has your son shown any allergic reaction to foods that are beneficial for type O's, such as grass-fed beef, lamb, cold water fish, fresh vegetables, etc?  

Don't worry about things such as soy, dairy and peanuts.  They are not recommended for type O's anyway.  There are plenty of other fruits besides strawberries.  Type O's get so many delicious foods that you can work with.  And try some almond butter instead of peanut butter.

Sometimes food allergies will diminish and disappear with the BTD or Genotype diet, but even if they don't, keep working with the good foods that are recommended for him.

Have you gotten a Secretor test for him yet?  That can help you fine-tune the foods that are best for his body.

Sometimes, just staying away from all gluten and corn is enough to turn the health around, especially for someone with severe allergies.

I'll be honest. My nephew with THE severest allergies in the family could not tolerate corn too well, also an O+. Since he was a lot like my son, only my son's allergies toned down, I never gave my son corn either! I was not pushing the envelope as it were!

June -- it will always be about what you do eat not what you don't.


Victoria has some great suggestions, so many foods to chose from and what a blessing that you are home and can take the time to cook.

No, no secretor test yet. That will be the next thing I order when I can. It's hard working with the food thing with him though. He has something called SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder). So, things that normally smell good like a fresh peeled orange can send him screaming for the other room. Though he's not a fan of oranges, it was just an example. He is stuck on canned fruits and veggies and I'm having a time getting him off of them. My youngest though will eat anything you put in front of him! So, looking for a fruit to get him onto is a bit challenging at the moment but, I'm still trying. He does like beef and fish though, as long as the fish is in fish stick form...my homemade fish sticks need a lot of help though.

I'm really hoping that this will help him a lot. The diet changes, i.e. removal of all milk proteins, going as organic as possible, easier digestible vitamins for him, currently we're slowly removing gluten, etc. have already improved his conditions ten fold! His Tourette Syndrome went from almost incapacitating tics to tics that outside the family, you would hardly or not notice at all. His anxieties while still prevalent, have gone from severe to tolerable for the most part. He went from 7 medications to only 4 and we're almost off of one of them. The progress has been encouraging. His symptoms of all conditions have dropped so much so that now, his gut and bowels have become my main focus. I know that this is where a lot of his issues stem from and I'm hoping to do what I can to help alleviate his issues.

allergies in general are a wake up call, meaning the gut needs urgent fixing

BT/GT guidelines help enormously

compliance and conviction will win the race.....
the more you all find out about your individuality, the better chance of targeting the plan accordingly

here is a great test to start them off right

June - I have severe allergies/intolerances to a lot of foods, such as dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, strawberries, and bananas. Some foods that bother me are on my beneficial list. It's a challenge, but there are lots of fruits and vegies that I can eat, along with a few kinds of beans and some proteins. So I just stay away from both the things that are on my Swami avoid list and those that I know I'm allergic to. When my severely allergic children were little, I had to come up with creative ways to keep them healthy, so I made things like goat milk - rice flour pancakes and biscuits, rice cakes with corn-free peanut butter, cutting open a date and inserting a pecan, etc. I always had to pack their school lunches with things they could tolerate. Also, are there any kinds of digestive enzymes you could give him to help the digestion process?

He is stuck on canned fruits and veggies and I'm having a time getting him off of them.

I'd say "choose your battles".  If he only wants canned fruits and veggies, start phasing in more and more canned fruits and veggies that are beneficial for his blood type, and fruits that are not sweetened.

My youngest though will eat anything you put in front of him! So, looking for a fruit to get him onto is a bit challenging at the moment but, I'm still trying. He does like beef and fish though, as long as the fish is in fish stick form...my homemade fish sticks need a lot of help though.

It's wonderful to hear of the progress!    Keep up the good work.  And it's slow and steady that will bring about changes without forcing him to rebel against what you're doing.

Lots of good information in the posts above, so I'll give you this addendum.  

You mentioned your fish sticks needed help--try this: cut a firm fish like cod or haddock in stick form. Have two bowls ready, one filled with white rice flour, the other with beaten egg. (You can add some sea salt to the flour if you like.) Roll the sticks in the rice flour first, then in the beaten egg, then in the rice flour again. Fry or bake them the way you normally do, using a compliant oil. The rice flour makes a nice light batter that's crispy. And it's okay for your type O too

You know, I was just talking with a friend about that. She had some really good suggestions. I'll have to finish the conversation and see what I can find locally around here. Thanks for reminding me!

@Victoria - thanks! We're working on it. It's been gosh, two years now of slowly changing his diet. I remember when I first heard that diet could affect these guys with nuerological issues. I remember first fighting his doc when he told me that at 2yrs old he'd outgrown his milk intolerance and I disagreed. It has been a VERY  long road to get to this forum but, the change is the payoff! So, I appreciate all of the help and info you have given!
