Hi Victoria,
thank you; you know very well that BTD makes a difference for our health and my mother has high risk to relapse and a difficult mind balance. Hypothiroidism, anemia and so on have challenged her deeply also if she is 73 year old.- If she will undergo another anesthesia (she had this anesthesia with neurolectics helas) she will not recover at all I fear.
This is really scaring.
My best wishes and thak you again !

Maria So glad your mom is improving and your on the right track - taking care of yourself. I believe nutrition is the key.  

Cancer is big in my family My Mom, her 2 bro & cousins (all 1st generation Swedes born in America) had colon cancer and my oldest son had lung cancer that probably started in his colon. My sis conquered Colitis and her daughter is beating Crohns using Elaine Gottchall's "Specific Carbohydrate Diet". There are 5 kids (ha ha were all 60ish) in my family and 4 of us are A's, one sis is untested). Plan to ask niece if she knows her type & encourage her to look at the BTD. There is such wonderful support and suppliments available here.          

TypeAchica - Cronic Sinusites and Alergies are among my health issues. I did the MD thing and the problems just won't go away. So here I am. The Alergy book is helpful. I got it at the Public Library at first - then decided to buy it. I started using Stinging Nettle Leaves and Quercetin about a week ago and my symptoms (inc pain) are improving. Also the pressure in my left ear is almost gone. I've only been on BTD since the 1st. I'm not 100% compliant, but I do a little better each day. Ive even lost a little weight and definately loosing the bloat. When I can afford it I'm going to order some of the other suppliments that I can't find locally.
Glad your here. This is an amazingly wonderful place.

purlgirl, welcome to BTD and the forum.  
You are absolutely right when you say this is an amazingly wonderful  place.
Thanks for listing the Quercitin and Stinging Nettle!  Looky there, you've helped someone else already!
I'm having a bit of a time fighting some sinus and bronchitis issues since being exposed to a smoky environment last Sunday (had NO idea they would allow smoking as there were babies and little kids there!), add in the crazy weather, a few avoids and wah-lah!! Better luck next time.   Have been eating Proberry caps, Omega 3, Vit C, Redoxa and just took a Quercitin (or should I take more)? Also have drowned myself w/ green tea over the past 2 days, just swam in it all the other days.
Don't be too hard on yourself (if you are) re: compliancy. Not everyone can be 100% compliant, tho I think we would all like to.  Baby steps are good here, so just come toddle along w/ the rest of us.

this statement got me thinking about the father of a friend of mine who died of lung cancer, never smoked, and was also a Swede........going to ask her about any possible colon complications her father might have had before........

sorry to hear about your son.

typeAchica,
Make sure that you are getting enough protein.  I think most A's eat several small meals a day, but don't let them be just fruits and vegetables or starches, without adding some protein for the staying power.

Thank you for your concern Victoria.

I am doing what ER4YT says and eating beans almost every night with dinner. It might get a bit boring, but I will have to figure out how to creat new recipes. Thank god I'm a bean lover . I don't really like any of the other protein foods. NO WAY AM I EATING TOFU AGAIN! YUK! Hopefully my pallet will change soon and I can eat more soy products, but for now they're out of the question.

I have already introduced the BDT to my Chiropractor and he loves the idea. Next on my list, my NP and then in 3 months an update with my Gastroenterologist (whom introduced BTD to me ). I can't wait! I am already using the bathroom more regularly and without so much pain, etc.

I AM SO PSYCHED!!!

OMGosh! I really needed a wakeup call so I got a Cafe Mocha from the local store.  Bad idea. I think I've noticed the difference in my digestive system and level of energy change.  After I had the drink I felt horribly nauseas and had to use the bathroom.  I think my tastes are changing too.  I like red bell pepper soup.  Who'd of thought.  Not me.  I used to hate it, but I just ate some for lunch and it was the best soup I'd ever had!  This is so kewl!

Thank you to everyone for all of your support!  I couldn't stick to this without you all.  Only a couple more weeks to go to see if I have a major change.  If I can do 3 weeks, I can do it for years.

Do you realize that red bell peppers are an avoid for type A secretors? However, they are neutral for type A non-secretors.

Have you ordered the secretor test yet?

have turkey or fish or chicken , or veggie broths just no beef broth.

make sure those have no avoids either.
make a list of foods from the lists in your book.....

try and have your fridge full of options, start with veggies and fruit......have a selection .....

stir fries are easy to make...just add chunks of compliant protein and veggies to the mix.

check the grains.......have a bit of whatever is compliant, already in your fridge.

oven roasted root veggies.......or rice.......etc to accompany any given meal....
always plan ahead, freeze and store individual servings.
turkey burgers are easy to freeze and thaw in a breeze....
I could go on, but you get the drift right?

Why would beef broth be a problem? Beef is not an avoid because of a lectin or galectin. Beef is an avoid for type A because it is difficult to digest. Do you really think that beef broth would be difficult to digest?

If I'm mistaken, thanks for the correction Don.  I thought that if a meat is an avoid, then the broth is avoid also.

TA - so glad your doing better.
"Flairing up"  I think the worse thing is stress. Don't let anxiety get hold of you.  We A's are famous for that.  We have to learn to relax and just let go of all the "What If's" that we dwell on when we are suppose to be asleep.

Do you know your secretor status?  I'm so glad I did the test bc there is quite a bit of differance in the food.  It seems to me the more immune problems you have the more likely your a
non-secretor (nonnie).

Let us know how your doing.

In this case, I don't know for sure, but it just seems to me that beef broth might be OK.

Now in the case of chicken broth for type B or AB that is totally different. Chicken is an avoid for them because of a galectin and that galectin will wash out of the meat into the broth. Therefore, type B and AB should never eat anything even cooked with chicken because the galectin will be throughout the whole entree.

You can use beef bones for your stock. There's no lectin (or 'galectin') in beef, so making broth with them is perfectly fine. A tip: roasting them before putting them in the water will make a tastier soup.


right, Heidi s suggestion to an A
