I have a friend whose husband has been in a lot of pain and dr's are thinking he may have fibromyalgia.  Which health series books of Dr D's would you recommend they get for him?  I have no idea what blood type he is.  Would the arthritis book help him with that because of the inflammation he's experiencing?

But is that the book he should probably start out reading or maybe just Eat Right for Your Type?

the arthritis book would be just right, due to its targeted approach on the matter.

Either the Arthritis book, or the Fatigue book.  The Fatigue book mentions fibromyalgia.

The Health Series Books further refine the diet, breaking down foods into five categories.  Super Beneficial, Beneficial, Netural, Neutral Infrequent, Avoid.

If he does get diagnosed with fibromyalgia, (and decides to follow the diet) he should get his secretor status tested.   In the Fatigue book it says,

Quoted Text
Non-secretors account for 80% of all fibromyalgia sufferers, irrespective of blood type.


The key to success is, eliminating avoids completely, eliminating the Infrequent Neutrals if at all possible, and get as many Super Beneficials and Beneficials in him on at every meal possible.



Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Ok, that's good to know that fibromyalgia is mentioned in the Fatigue book - that's what I was looking for.

the book cover of the arthritis book also mentions fibromyalgia and other inflamatory conditions so that leads me to believe both book lists will be the same.

either one will work for your friend.

You can order the books through the Blood Type Store:

http://www.dadamo.com/napharm/.....%20Books&start=8

You can also get them through your local bookseller or at amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, etc.

I use the Arthritis book for my fibro because for me, the pain is worse than the fatigue--and my exhaustion can be debilitating if I'm not careful to get enough rest, so that tells you what my pain levels have been like in the past. By following the anti-inflammatory protocol and upping my compliance level, problems with non-restorative sleep tend to subside, and pain and fatigue levels go way down. On a pain/fatigue scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being a great day and 10 being a day where things are unbearable, I've gone from an average of 7-8 down to 1-2, and sometimes 0. That is nothing short of miraculous. And it was almost all done with diet and modest exercise. (I try to walk every day, or at least stay active and on my feet for short periods through the day--whatever is appropriate for my level of energy and freedom from pain.)

Also, this site has proved helpful to me and to other people with FMS and chronic fatigue etc:

Hope this helps

go to the on line store (button on the left hand side or the main page)
or the button on top of the main page 'library', that s where you will find the books.

I have been using the arthritis book (I also have fibro), and after only 6 weeks the pain/muscle fatigue has pretty much subsided. Now the fatigue is the the worst part for me and I will start following that book mainly next week.  I would suggest both if at all possible, they both have valuable information for fibro sufferers.  Sandy O
