Any Bs out there who suffer from backache? How do you deal with it thro the BTD?

My husband is B...and he had 'minor' slipped disc during army days. He's flat foot and the army boots werent helping...

Anyway, that was more than 20 years gao, but he gets pains very often. I must say that he really doesnt take care of his back...but do tell me good people out there, is there a solution for bad back?

If he has been checked out by doctors and doesn't have anthing badly wrong with him, I would recommend yoga. I strengthens the minor supporting muscles that are often not exercised in normal weight lifting, stretches and loosens tight or contracted muscles, and relieves cortisol induced stress. In fact I will be going tonight. I used to have a lot of stress in my upper back and neck. One shoulder even "froze" for a while. In the Live Right For Your Type book it is recommended as one of the best exercises for B's and A's. Unfortunately in the United States a lot of men think of it as a womans exercise, and the majority of the class members often are women. If he brings that up ask him if he would rather be around a bnch of sweaty men or trim,in shape, women. It also reminds me of the time my karate teacher got some young military men to go to the yoga class for flexibility. They were joking about how easy it was and the gray haired woman in her fifties teaching it over heard. Needless to say it was a workout they will never forget!

My husband's back is not severe but bad. He does a few yoga ex for strengthening the back...but I was wondering whether there are any suppliments which will help healing the back. there is slight muscle atrophy on his left glutes..

Maybe some quercitan or bromelein . The first is found in onions and garlic and the second in pineapple. Tablets of both exist. Of course following the BTD would reduce inflation. In indian cooking the avoids that I can remember that are common are lentils (dhal) and wheat bread. Yogurt would be a good beneficial and lamb if you can persuade him.

I told him about how BTD heals..and he smiled and said he was willing to give it a try. Dhals have been banished from the kitchen and the good man doesnt like wheat. He's a rice man through and through. Yeah, lucky fellow gets to eat my share of yoghurt too. He eats mutton, so that's OK, right? And no tomatoes as well.

Tablets-thanks for the recommendations, but let him see how I have improved with the suppliments..and then perhaps I'll suggest to him. So for the moment he'll have to consume large doses of onions & garlic.

Thank you!

Yes muttons is great - beneficial
accidental chef what about the cooking oils what do you use?
I know that avoid oils and nuts, seeds and lentils etc are far worse on my body tha avoids from veggies, greens and grains- don┤t know why
Any way I was thinking that in Singapore a lot of bad oils etc would pop out or ??

Has he seen a chiropractor?  Does he have orthodics for his flat feet?  Great that he is on a good route to BTD.  As above I suggest the yoga and supplements.  It's all connected.

Henriette, at home I use Olive oil. In Singapore, generally everyone uses vegetable oil, soy, safflower, sunflower, sesame oils...all claiming to have less cholesterol & healthy . Olive oil is very expensive..and it would be impractical for all food outlets to use this oil. Eating & Shopping are one of the national past times , hence that remark. Lard is another medium. And coconut oil. Of course ghee as well, but ghee has the evil tag tied to it . At the moment I'm the only one at home following the BTD compliancy, to the T.

Debra, yes he saw a chiropractor, who said that there was actually misalignment of the hips..and treated him for about 8 months. My husband, after sometime felt that he was "good to go"...but obviously not Nope, he doesnt wear orthotics for his flat feet, despite having 2 pairs sitting on the shoe rack for God only knows how many years-just one of those B things where he will do as he pleases . As long as he's happy, I'm happy too!

He is, however very supportive of my change of life style..and often checks whether ABC or XYZ is compliant for him as well. So we are slowly, but surely on our way to great healing!

BUT that is really depending on a lot things!!!
- first of all they are REALLY BAD news for B┤s !
second they are (almost) always not coldpressed- and contains lots of polysaturated fat- which is not as good as once thought
- but the  producers just forgot to tell us that.
MOST of us get far to much omega 6 - which theese oils have lots of.
AND B┤s do better with monosatuared fat from olive oil or maybe macadamianut oil.
AND the saturated fat from dairy( butter and ghee) is not a problem either.....

I know olive oil is expensive - my uncle used to live in Bangkok and moved to Hongkong just last year,
He found less expensive grape seed oil
- it is untested - but I have no complications to it and I know a lot of others threat it as neutral

When I eat out I try to stick to food with little oil involved - that way I can avoid most problems.

accidental chef I think you are doing a fine job
- and both of you seem to be on the right track.
I have the depest respect for people who try to follow BTD outside the western world- God knows it is difficult even in Europe- some of the testings are just too american- but you must lack a lot of tested products- no to mention lack a lot of things to be tested.

Henriette,
It's so true what you say! Most of our meals are home cooked. When I started with BTD, the very first thing I did was to make a list of Avoids, Neutrals & Beneficials for both O & B and stick it on the fridge. I've zeroed in on all the common stuff, so it makes life easier for us.

It's all a process I guess!

You are doing fine
And B and O is actually a pretty easy combo
