I see that AB genotype can fall into either Nomads, Warriers or Teachers. I really like being a Nomad since its not as lonely on the message boards since I am keeping company with AB's and B's instead of just AB's. I also feel the Nomad genotype diet is more suited for me since I was an AB who could eat chicken but couldnt digest soy. The genotype diet seems to agree with who I am in personality and digestion. This new book really fit me well, where Eat Right and Live Right were just not quite right for me. I am grateful to be finally figured out!

My question is to other AB Nomads, was your mother a "B" bloodtype? My mothere was a B+ bloodtype and I was wondering if her B bloodtype influenced me to be more like a B instead of an A? I also have a B-sister and B+ daughter. I feel at home with the Bs.

This is a very interesting and insightful question. Looking forward to seeing the responses from the B's and AB's.  

As an Explorer,this diet works better for me than either ER or LR. I got the A from  my dad and the O from mom. So this makes me wonder which parent gave me more of the Explorer idiosyncracies????

My Father was AB- and my mother O+.  I always gravitated towards the foods my Dad liked vs my Mom.  My B+ son seemed to like my motherís food more than me when he was little, but now we have similar tastes in meat, cheese & veggies.  He likes chicken and I wonít touch the stuff.  I love fish, like my Father and my son hates it like my mother did.  Iím an Explorer and my son is a Nomad.


I am B- NON-Sec Explorer; my son is B+ SEC Nomad; my Mother was O+; and my Father was AB-

My Dad is an A and my Mom is a B negative.

I'm just curious, did you do your measurements?

I really like the Nomad diet too.

Hi ABNoWay,

I ordered the Genotype test kit as soon as I started to read the book, while I was ordering I figured I would also order the Secretor test kit. Well both tests profoundly opened up my eyes! On the Nomad Strength Meter test, my answer was YES to all 8 questions. I used the fingerprint kit and I also measured my jaw with the protractor in the kit. I have 7 ulnar loop and one radial loop on my right thumb.  I never had to even guess between 2 Genotypes, I just kept coming up stronger and stronger as a Nomad.

Dr D says that quite a few Nomads suffer from Chronic Fatigue and this is something I have been battling for 10 years now. Every page I read I felt like he was addressing me. It felt good to finally be identified. I am feeling hopeful that I will get to the bottom of many of my health problems.

I've been battling fatigue also.  And yes it is totally great to be understood.  When people act like it's in your head, I wish you could hand them the book and they read it and understand and believe.  But alas, life is not perfect.  

I didn't do all that other stuff, I just did the advanced calculator with the measurements and I know my secreter status and RH.  So, it was a no brainer for me and none of my measurements were close enough for their to be any question.  When I did answer the questions though, I actually "strength" tested higher as a Hunter.  But it's impossible for me to even be one due to my blood type.  So, from what I understand, the measurements trump all.

I believe my AB daughter might be a Nomad.  I want to take her fingerprints and see what that can tell me.  She's a lot like my B Nomad husband.

How early is too early for the kids?  Will the measurements still work, even if they're still growing?

Nomads have 8 or more loops on their fingertips. Before I fingerprinted myself I could tell I had loops on my fingertips under a bright light. My fingertips on my left hand were easier to see the loops because I didnt have as many lines coming through. On my right hand I had more lines and the loops were not as apparent until I fingerprinted myself. Look for the loops, they might be easy to spot.

Also what is the size of her head? Is it wide accross the top?

I dont know if this may hold true, but is she an easy going child? I was a very easy child and didnt need much attending too. I was a bit independent and aloof. I dont know if that was just me, or is that just Nomad or AB.

I was easy going until I started playing sports.  It had a tenancy to bring out the animal in me.  But I still was tame compared to some.  Probably all those O's.    But I still never liked cheatin and only thought it was fun if it was played fairly, win or lose.  I don't know if that was just something my Mom taught me or more part of my personality.  I still liked to win though.

All three of my children have huge, perfectly round heads.  I guess they would be considered "long" in Dr. D's book, as opposed to an Oriental-type head shaped, where the face and back of the head are flatter.  But their heads have looked like baseballs since birth.  Everybody comments on it.  But yes, her head is wide across the top towards the back, the it narrows slightly, just like my husband's.

She's a Jekell/Hyde type, which I see as her A side fighting her B side.  It's hard to describe her.  Everything she does she gives it her all.  She always has.  She's very intense.

Hi ABNoWay
I wanted to give you a little perspective from another AB Nomad.

I also was easy going until I was in sometype of competition. I like to push myself and do the best I can. I gave it my all, and just like you I was always tame and never liked to cheat and played fairly.

In my later life my inlaws lived with us for 15 years  due to the fact they lived part time in Florida and lived between two states. Everyone asked would ask "Isnt it hard to have them live with you?" I actually didnt mind it at all. I do get bothered and flustered, but I can look past a lot of things. I am aloof though and dont like to get cornered into things. I rather have the view at looking at things from the outside in rather than from looking inside out. I think because of this I dont get myself into circumstances.

Most of the Nomad descriptions fit me, but I am not tall or short. I am a 5'5" female which is average. Maybe that is considered short. Dr D didnt get measurements on that. I am green eyed as he said one of the descriptions for a Nomad.

I posted long, long ago and said that every post by an AB helps me understand my daughter a little better.  She's always been an enigma to me.

You say you're easy-going till you get in a competition, then you give it your all?  That sounds like my DD.  Maybe that's what's going on.  Thanks, y'all, for explaining that.

Hi Ribbit,

I think its wonderful that you are trying to figure out more about AB's to understand your daughter. In my extended family there are 4 other AB's and one fits your daughters description.
Quoted Text
She's a Jekell/Hyde type, which I see as her A side fighting her B side.  It's hard to describe her.  Everything she does she gives it her all.  She always has.  She's very intense
.

My AB-neice was a Jekell/Hyde type in her youth. Her mother was also an A bloodtype as yourself. You could describe my neice as intense also. She was basically a good child but very hard to raise. She had ups and downs in her teens and twenties and she finally has mellowed out in her 30s. I was the one her checked her bloodtype with the Eldon card and I was surprised when she came out to be an AB. Up to that point I had only know mellow AB's that tended to be balanced in personality. Now that I am reading the Genotype book, I can see that my neice is most likely a Warrier Type. Dr D's digestion issues fits her to a T. Might your daughter be a Warrier?

I love your description of what you see in her, very intuitive.
Even your words sound like her two blood types are vying for control. You really shed light on that for me. I see my neice as having this also.

I describe myself as basically being an A bloodtype personality who has the B bloodtype come in a reason with me. Its like I care about something very much and get absorbed, but then a little voice comes in and tells me to ease up. It feels like I reason things out from 2 perspectives.

Seeing posts from other AB's helps me also, I actually sometimes am an enigma to myself

She might be.  

I can't take credit for that idea.  It was Isa, another AB nonnie, who told me that's what she feels, and it fit my daughter perfectly.

I know a couple of well-balanced ABs too.

My in Laws are coming in two weeks to stay for two weeks.  Let's just say I'm not with you on that issue.     But alot of the other stuff sounds similar.  

I was pretty easy going, except like when it came to sports.  Then at the end of high school I played in bands and was in a rebellious stage until about 24.  Maybe not everyone is like this but I could really intense or really laid back.  I just figured everyone was like that.  Now, I'm trying to learn to just chill about everything.  The Bible says a man in control of his temper is greater than a mighty ruler.  Or something like that.  It was in Proverbs 16 yesterday.  I don't feel like looking up the exact quote, but it means chill out and control your temper.  Because I do struggle with a Temper from time to time.

This conversation is really interesting. I learn so much from reading other's posts too.

My daughter is an AB Nomad, I am a B Nomad. I am the shortest person in my family, green eyes, and was born with red hair, then it turned blonde, then brunette as time went by.  

My daughter is very intuitive and open to all illnesses unfortunately.  She gets sick often. Her personality matches the receptor and openess that Dr. D describes for AB, so does her immune system.  I believe she is in my life to show me so much because she already has.    

I did not know about the BTD before I breast feed her, nor about skim milk, goat and the other stuff.  I feel that I could have saved us all a lot of suffering if I would have known BTD beforehand.  She's always had idiosycratic problems. I can see clearly now. Hindsight...

I say this because my son is B Nomad like me. He's never sick, breastfed very well, never gives me a hard time, and is a very "easy" child.  You sometimes forget he's there because he is so self reliant.

Well, I believe regardless of the blood types and Genotypes, we are all of course different.  I believe God intended it that way.  But I suppose some of us are more like others.  

Hindsight is always 20/20.  It's been a journey also to get to the Blood Type diet.  But it was that journey that led me here.  If there were no problems, I wouldn't be looking for the solution.  But I know what you're saying.  I wish I could've skipped all of the problems too.

Hi ABNoWay

You got me thinking about my younger days and what I was like.

Your quote
Quoted Text

Maybe I was intense also, I was intense at trying to be perfect. I tried hard to be the perfect wife, mother and person. I wore myself out by the time I was 40 and then developed Chronic Fatigue after a routine surgery. After the fatigue set in I gave up with trying to be the best at everything because I just couldnt anymore. I also am trying to chill about everything. You are a young man and you sound like you have your act together. I enjoy all your posts.

I am trying to determine if AB Nomads come from a B bloodtype moms. So far AbNoWay, myself and your daughter are AB Nomads that all have a B mom.

AB's can be Nomads, Warriers or Teachers and I just wanted to see if the mothers bloodtype swings the AB to a certain Genotype. There are so few AB's on the board for me to get good numbers on this. In time maybe as more people venture to the Genotype site the more experiences we will read about, the more that can be learned.

Don't forget the GT4 (Explorer) group of us AB's either...Isa is one.

Okay, maybe I should but in here now instead of just following/reading this thread.

I am an AB- and my mom is a B+. Going by the advanced tables in the book I am very definitely a Teacher.  So, at least for me, the idea doesn't work.

That said, when doing the strength testing (I did 'em out of curiosity after I knew I was a GT3) I am just barely a Teacher. Almost an even split between Teacher and Nomad with a smattering of Explorer.

So where does that put me? AB is the smallest of the blood groups. According to the poll most of us are shaking out as Nomads, the smallest archetype...but that  makes me even rarer since, so far, I am the only AB GT3.

Ah, if only SWAMI were available to us now instead of later on this summer...better late than never.

Hi Chanur,

I purchased the Genotype measuring kit from Dr D's website. The fingerprint kit really helped me, in fact I was fascinated as I saw the 7 ulnar loops and 1 radial loop appear in the ink. My thumbs were whorls. It also came with a protractor and I measured my jaw angle. It also had the PROP strips in it. I also did every measurement in the book that he had. I really wanted to make sure what Genotype I was. The kit was well worth ordering. It helped me solidify to me what Genotype I really was.

I am sure that I am a GT3 (Teacher). The measurements always win out over the strength tests. I have no doubts about it. I had my measurements done multiple times by multiple people after I read the GT3 description...every single time it came out GT3. After that, I was convinced.

I only looked at the strength tests to try to find an explanation as to how I could be in a group that is mostly A's when I shared so many of the obvious Nomad traits and there I found my answer: slight Teacher dominance over Nomad.

yeah.. that's interesting. My neighbors are all ABs. Mother, Father and three children.  They match the intense, right, wrong, religious, intuitive teacher properties.  They are the neighborhood watch people.  I love having them near. They always help others. They are the first in line. I'm lucky to have neighbors like them.

Amen. It's been a journey for me to get to the Bloodtype diet too.  Once I prayed and relinquished control to God the information showed up as well as my blood type in the mail the same day.  I did not know my blood type.  I did not request it seeing as I did not know the information existed anywhere in my records or how to find the information.
