Quoted from Lloyd




Not mentioning something is not the same as saying you should not use it. Blood type supplements are still valuable. Your antigens do not change based on being in a certain GT and many things are still best addressed from a BT basis.

Using supplements to address specific things is not the same as mixing randomly mixing foods from the two diets.


Thanks Lloyd... but Dr. D does not mention many things and I think he mentions those he feels that are most important.  There are so many supp's out there I could buy for this and that condition that are not mentioned.  I choose to really go with what he suggests.  

It's hard to know as a layperson what to really go with so I really depend on the GTD now (previously BTD), to sort of guide me through the confusion of so many choices.  

The next best thing would be a GTD Swami which Lola suggested.  So I hope to find one in the WA (Seattle area).

Yes, Lola, I take that as well.  But sometimes it doesn't seem to help much or soon enough.  I actually saw that recommendation on the link above, it was one of the last questions.  I am curious now, to see if the spasms happen more often on the days when I do not eat any butter.  This is all so intriguing.

I don't eat butter and I get horrid RLS at night.  Sometimes the Mag helps but overall I think it helps more than hurts.

why not add ghee instead?
and are you not intrigued to know your secretor status, to finetune your diet recommendations and follow the protocols more accurately?

I really cannot afford ghee, Lola.  I have made it a couple of times, first was good, second cooked too long.  But, butter is a super food, is it not?  For us hunters?  Yes, I am anxious to know secreter type, I really think that I am a secreter, if being in excellent health all my life until stress and pesticides took a toll at age 58.  But I am going to find out for sure.  And as for the cramps, I think I found the culprit.  I have been taking ICP6 for a while, as I was told it was a good preventative for cancer.  Seems it throws the cal/mag balance out of whack for me, so I am stopping it.

Yes Butter is a super food, but Ghee is a Diamond.  But for budget, butter will do.
