I was going to post this on the Exporer Liver Problems thread, but what the hey.
I had QUITE A BIT of nutritional yeast, QUITE A BIT OF FATS, and QUITE A BIT OF FERMENTED MISO
at home for a lovely dinner that would satisfy a vegetarian craving....but the whole ordeal (though enormously tasty) has slowed down my whole liver for more than 24 hours!

I'm considering a Liver Cleanse for hidden stones pretty soon, because this is not like me at all.
I've taken copious naps yesterday....had bad dreams (a sure sign of active toxins going)...and at night feel like a binge/purge (as in my old days of bulimia) is strangely, still in order. I have headaches off and on as well.

I do believe that my new job of 2 months selling fruits and veggies inside health clinics all over town, plus my aged mother's infections and cold here at home.....are making their way into my liver if they haven't already done so. Other than that I'm in excellent health thanks to the BTD...because I'm too financially poor to persue the Genotype Diet exclusively.

So...my question is: as an A nonnie and non-Swami person:

Should A Explorers "assume" that if "nutritional yeast" and "miso" are listed as "toxins" in their Genotype Diet recommendations.....then we are NEVER to eat them in combination with one another on the BTD? My guess right now is "YES, DO NOT EAT THEM TOGETHER."

I did. My body was wacked out by using miso and nutritional yeast all in one meal. They are beneficial for A's, hence my perplexity over this.

We need to monitor what foods / food combinations are doing in our bodies.  Is it possible that since both of these foods are beneficial in your Type A diet, that the quantity (possibly compounded with exposure to illness) eaten moved a load of toxin out of somewhere that is being processed by your liver?  It may be that this was a great dinner, but the energy from it has allowed the body to do some healing and left you dealing with a healing crisis.

What makes you think that your liver is "slowed down"? What kinds of symptoms are you having, and how do they vary from what's normal for you?

Assuming that you do have a "sluggish liver" from the meal you ate, there are a couple of possible soruces.

It could be a "healing crisis", that the foods were so beneficial and healing that they made your body pull some toxins out of storage to sort through and get out of your body, making you feel sick and sluggish in the short term but very healing in the long term. It's also possible that those foods just aren't so good for you personally, and the toxin load your liver is struggling with is toxins from the foods themselves. We're all individuals, and any of the "book diets" needs to be tweaked based on our personal experiences with varying foods. It's also possible that you're just fine with the miso and/or the yeast, but you had too much fat at one meal for you to handle.

In any case, eating something that makes you feel sick and sluggish for 24+ hours may not be a good thing. You don't want to pull toxins from storage faster than you can clear them from your body. I'd suggest not eating those foods together in the  future, or eat them in much smaller quantities.

Thank you ABJoe and Ruthiegirl I can "see" now! And thank you Amazone I. It's just that this could not have come at a worser time....Mom's dementia rearing its head again...and someone suspicious trying to date me.....my poor nerves haven't been helped by whatever toxins are trying to move themselves out. THANK YOU!

Only to give the example again:
1.) when it feels like everything is sitting around my liver in a large load - and eating pineapple does not speed up digestion
2.) Headaches come and go (never have them otherwise!)
3.) Feelings of being "full" after 1 large meal 24 hours ago
4.) Trying to switch foods for a lighter meal later, and things still "sitting around my liver" in the middle of my abdomen, like nothing's moving, even tho I'm going to the bathroom normally. It's a heavy feeling around the liver, like things have "halted".
