Quoted from Bert
I am wondering if anyone has been to the clinic in New York? I am interested in going but am not sure if it is just another money grab! I am 61 and have been diagnosed with Monoclonal gammopathy of unknown signifcance. Which really means that I have the protien in my blood that causes Multiple Myeloma. Two of my brothers have had this disease as well as my mother. My one brother died of this disease over 20 years ago, my other brother is just been diagnosed. I am interested in going to the clinic to keep my chances of developing this disease to a minimum. I would value anyones input into the sucess they have had with this clinic as well as with the diet.
Welcome to the forum Bert.
Have you read any of Dr. D's books? There's a lot that you can do for yourself to see if this way of eating will help you.
Btw, what's your blood type? Do you know?
I'm not familiar with your health issue? Is it genetic? There are a few members here who post on the board who have a genetic health issue, and the BTD had improved their quality of life.
Browse around the site and become familiar with all the features here. If you look at the top right of the page, you will see a link called "member center." If you click on that link, it will take you to a page where you can pick an appropriate avatar, to represent your Blood Type Shield. This comes in handy when others are trying to help you answer questions. Also on that link you can create a special message under your shield, and a personal signature that will appear in all your posts.
You will also find lots of scientific support for the BTD in the Individualist Wiki
And yes, there are some members here who have seen Dr. D at his clinic, and have nothing but positive words about him.
You might take a look at the Testimonials
Forum for those who talk about their experiences of being on the BTD.
Again, welcome to the forum, and keep asking questions!
