Mayflowers - The only place in Dr. D's books that say anything about glutamine for Type A that I can find is on page 228 of his Live Right For Your Type book as a metabolism booster. It says Type A can take 200-500 mg of L-glutamine twice daily. I didn't take any today. I'm going to wait a few days, then try a little again and see if it raises my pulse or makes me feel bad.
Chloe - That's me. My husband eats everything and I am so limited.

The thing about the taking anti-inflammatory is that they don't address your system over-reacting so bad. They don't address insulin reception amplifying all the issues.

L-glutamine and stress isn't much of a factor for an Explorer. Stress is bad but it doesn't make or break Explorers. Just like how there isn't a limit to their exercise like there is for Warriors and Teachers.

You can buy organic to avoid the GMO issue.



Some react to nonGMO corn because of previous exposure to GMO corn.
Corn also contains a form similar enough to gluten to cause reaction in some folks.

I'm off corn for a good while. IgG.
Hope to get it back eventually- if there is any nonGMO left on the planet at that point.  

Funny, before I learned about GMO and the whole issue, I was still happily eating tortilla chips at restaurants quite frequently thinking I was safe because I was "gluten free" and GTD compliant.

Mini rant over.

But it can. This Explorer is recovering from adrenal fatigue and a messed up gut. Hmm, and a hint of metal toxicity. One thing leads to another.

L-glutamine has been a lifesaver along with a whole list of protocol I'm working on with a functional medicine practitioner.

DOS, I really don't understand why you are so prone to focus on the AGE thing with this person. The food reactions, to me, point to bacterial overgrowth issues. This can throw a lot of things out of wack.
Seems like a reboot is in order. Just my thoughts.

Bad bacteria feed on the grains (especially those that are undigested from low HCL and/or lack of enzymes) add to the fact that a lot of the grains decrease mineral assimilation anyway, depriving every cell in the body from being nourished. Hard then, to make nice new cells and every cell in the body suffers. Add the assaults in the intestines w/Lectins, etc and you have a mad mess on your hands.

No wonder the body is screaming STOP EATING THIS!

The baddy bacteria produce ammonia which is highly inflammatory.

I really do suggest seeing a licensed ND and/or one of the functional medicine folks listed above. Critical.
I plan to be out of this mess within a year. Gut takes 6 months to a year of real good care to regenerate.

Just the other day, I had a morning that felt like what I remember a normal (if not a little down) day used to feel like before I got into this mess. Praise God!

Why? Because insulin reception is so poor. It doesn't take much to find the correlation; including cardiovascular disease connections as well. Now if it was simply just the liver, different story. D.L. already avoids everything that is food reactive, and cuts even more. SOOO it is pretty easy to take some gentle measures to try and improve insulin receptivity. Again a lot of the symptoms sound like high blood sugar, which is a medically diagnosed situation D.L. experiences (symptoms from non-allergens). Also if cells are unreceptive to stimulus of all the excellent for her body food, it makes sense to try and improve the viability of the cells getting nutrients.

It is hard to detoxify when your system is neglecting basic duties because of insulin resistance. Exercise helps obviously, but if you are spinning wheels even with that, then why not get some traction? The Geno-harmonic recommendations in SWAMIX are safe to eat foods based on your SWAMIX (you can't go wrong essentially). We are not talking about doing anything out of the ordinary. Sugar removal can be so powerful that within days someone can look a bit younger.

Pre-diabetic blood sugar state is more of a threat to new cells, autophagy, maintenance, etc. In fact one reason people respond so well to fasting is because it lets autophagy happen if their system isn't too far down the hill. Essentially they give their body a long enough break from blood sugar woes, toxin woes, etc, to let it do maintenance. But once you get to a point where your blood sugar won't go down even fasting, you need assistance to increase insulin reception. I'm saying this because it appears like very little relief is happening even with D.L. is avoiding grains. Explorers are known for responding fast to the diet but it can't happen if the body isn't receptive (no amount of vitamins you absorb from eating without grains can help if your body doesn't use the vitamins).  

There is a good chance that food allergies created a lot of the insulin resistance. Luckily for D.L. being an Explorer, A.G.E.s won't be much of a concern if everything calms down. But the current issue is that insulin resistance and food allergies work pretty harmoniously at keeping a constant state of inflammation and insulin resistance; which one came first isn't as much of a concern as trying to lower both happens to be.

Yes stress can be a problem for an Explorer. But with Teachers and Warriors it takes very little in comparison, to get them offset. Plus Explorers can benefit from exercising hard to relief stress. Mental stress and physical oxidative stress are not the same, either.

My brother for example, Type A blood Explorer. The best sleep in his life is working 16 hour days, roughly 12 hours of straight shoveling/pick-ax. For him it is like a Warrior or Teacher doing yoga.

This is probably the only post from D.L. that I've read. I was just looking at the origin of this post, which to me points to Heal The Gut. If D.L.'s doc thinks insulin resistance is priority or she is having issues with that- yeah wise to go after that.

We also consume AGEs, btw. If you have a leaky gut, it is probably more of an issue.

Um, yeah, which came first is important because getting to the cause is always the most important.

My doc said that metal toxicity (at which many explorers suck at getting rid of) can cause the food issues and throw everything out of wack.

My route of recovery started with adrenal support and is progressing along. Insulin kind of fell into line when I increased magnesium and b12 and began avoiding the IgG reactive foods. I'm at the point of dealing with the metals and have noticed immediate improvements. Healing the gut. The food issues will go.

Not absorbing magnesium in the gut is really detrimental. The oil can be critical in getting levels up. Magnesium deficiency and diabetes might as well be synonyms. Wheat does spike the blood sugar higher than a candy bar. So yeah, it's an issue.

What I like about what I am working on is that it is logical plan with the wisdom of order in which things are getting taken care of. I start a new supplement every 3-7 days so I can notice what has changed. My inner physician has agreed with just about everything I have done. Except when I was acutely ill and not eating much, some of the supps went by the wayside.

I really do think people with these issues need to be under a medical professional's care. One who gets it. Why waste time and money on self help and stabbing at supplements when you can be healed in a much shorter period of time? I think this is especially true for Explorer's who can likely have some of the genetic variations that make detox more of a challenge.

Google MTHFR and autism or alzheimers. Just scratching the surface.

More variation in Explorers catagory since it's kind of a catch all. My cortisol spikes with exercise. I do realize I need to sweat. (merc toxicity is often accompanied by zero sweat or profuse sweat). It is hard for me to sweat. I think my glands may be blocked. It comes out only in certain places. I will be looking at infrared sauna soon. Thanks for the reminder of the importance of sweat. I have a lot of oxidative stress and little mental stress right now (other than when the ammonia attacks my brain). Funny, when I did GTD book scores, I typed Warrior and a lot of the confusion over that not fitting is what lead me to Dr. D's office. I think my mom is a toxin ridden Warrior (with really bad fingerprints and I'm sure gluten sensitive) and my dad a diabetic Hunter (storing a lot of toxicity in the gut fat as well).

Toxins are an issue with all genotypes in this food culture, me thinks.

Goodness, I've been introspective the past 24 hrs. Time to get off the computer!!!

I really recommend Mark Hyman's book-- http://www.amazon.com/UltraMin.....;keywords=mark+hyman

There are quizzes and rankings that will show you what areas of concern really are. I was in the catagory of "see a doctor" in several of the catagories, above and beyond diet in a few, and just self help in a couple.

It was really enlightening and validating in seeing what needed honed in on and even the quiz itself was educational in seeing how it is all related.

Excellent resource.

I don't think grains necessary at all, I met a lady last year (age approx 50) given up all grains incl quinoa. she looks fine and says feels better than ever! Have a look on paleo sites too and marksdailyapple.com, also Dr Gabriel Cousen's site about his take on grains. Early Africans and Polynesians did fine without grains; most grains are acidic once digested, and lead to allergy, food intolerances.  Grains take time to soak and cook, or ferment; are they fresh??  or stored for ages.... fungi and mould.  Eat fresh food, real food, ie fruit, vegetables, pure proteins ie fish or whatever, some seeds/nuts (freshest and soaked/rinsed well), I am in process of going grain free; eat proteins, fats too ie olives, avocados, seeds/nuts, fats are in protein foods too ie fish(good). the nutrients in grains are in other foods with more antioxidants! and easier more gentle on gut wall/lining! try it, your elimination will also work better, as I am finding out......Fresh is best!
