Would like to know whether being on BTD will definitely prevent us from having any menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, loss of libido... etc.

Or it will only help us to cope with them.

For me, it definitely reduces symptoms.  I find that when I go off the program, I get more of a noticable hot flash.  When I stay on my program, I rarely have them.

You could try Dr. D's Fembalance formula and see if that helps.

Hi,
Hope everybody is well out there


What about foods that r highly ESTROGENIC but also " Highly Beneficial " for me ???
This worries me a little ...

Example: Licorice, Raspberry leaf, Ginseng, Kidney beans, Lima beans, Carrots, Millet,  ... etc ...
Thank-u

Remember, that information (about the generalizations about estrogen in certain foods) is targeted to the whole population and doesn't really apply if you are eating according to your type.  On a slightly related topic, soy, there is a lot of controversy about how good it is. So, check out what  Dr. has said about soy on this thread.  Our bodies are different, and what is okay for you (like kidney beans) isn't that great for me. See?

Also keep in mind your serving size portions.  If you are concerned about naturally occurring estrogen in foods that are bennies for you, you could check out the Health Library MENOPAUSE book by Dr. D, and look at the recommendations for your type.

You should note that I do really limit the "infrequent neutrals" as outlined in the health series books, (there are not many food classification differences between all eight books) and make sure I get as many Super Beneficials in me as I can in a day.

OK I will know later if BTD really helps or not, since up to now I have not any symtoms.

I thank-u for ur response; however if we ONLY eat the highly beneficial foods, our diets will be VERY LIMITED and I don't beleive that THAT is necessarily better ... especially since BALANCE and VARIETY is key or we might be lacking some important minerals, vitamins etc ...  

I try my best to eat the HIGHLY BENEFICIAL foods "daily"
however;  if I look at my fruits on the HB list,  I can NOT only live on pineapple, bananas, grapes etc ...
I also need apples, pears and all the rest that are a CLOCKFULL of nutrients/fiber ... etc ...

LisaLea, if you re-read KK's last paragraph, I think you will see that she is not suggesting you eat ONLY Highly Beneficials.  She is suggesting to eat as many as you can each day.  This does not exclude Neutrals, which, you are right, help to balance out nutrition.

Her reference to Infrequent Neutrals are a different category from Neutral.  These are in the Health Library series, and Dr. D. recommends to eat them seldom.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I apologize Lisalea!  I should have been more specific.  In the eight heath series books, Dr. D breaks the food down into even more categories.  They are:

Super Beneficial
Beneficial
Neutral (allowed frequently)
Neutral (allowed infrequently)
Avoids

Neutral infrequents should be considered almost like avoids, in that you should limit them, or have them not at all.

The diet in these books is more refined and specalized, to help focus healing on that specific health issue.  The food classifications are almost the same across the board for each type (at least for Type O's; I did not look at the other types), but what is different are the supplements for each health issue.

I hope that clears it up.

The "M" word?? It's NEVER going to happen to me...NEVER!!!!..... (fanning a hot flash )

I have found that Vitex and wild yam cream work to balance me out during these "power surges", I don't know if they are BTD compliant as of yet.

But yes, as I stick to BTD my "peri-M" symtoms are not as bad as usual.

Vitex (Chastetree) is one of the ingredients in NAP's Fembalance, good for all blood types.  Wild yam is a family of yam.  I see no problem there.  Besides, topical creams are not subject to the blood type criteria anyway.  Mostly for the skin, just try and stay away from chemicals that may be harmful.

Yes, I saw that while I was checking out the product goods- about the Vitex  

Yam is not good for A's, but I don't know if all that are called "yam" are related, so I am not sure how it would fit in to BTD.

I don't use much of it, just a small amount on the days before my period as that is when I am getting the hot flashes and night sweats.

The cream has also helped with breast swelling around the monthly time

Thanks for that head up on the yams and type A!  
Anyway, you are using it as a topical application, and not eating it.  So it's not a BTD concern.
