I have just done a search in Pubmed on Colon cancer and diet and on celiac disease and cancer; OMG!!!

I am celiac (nearly sure my brother too is), my mother has a colon cancer (surgery scheduled for Tuesday ) and one of my best friends has Ulcerative colitis or Crohn disease (often caused according researchers by celiac disease and or long enduring inflamation of the gut)  and his father died of a colon cancer.

All these nasty problems should be properly and quick addressed with BTD and Gluten free diet since infancy or teen years, but gluten dangers and celiac disease are so undervalued by physicians.
I'll have to feed enough a 73 years old picky eater mummy BT A (nonnie I guess) good protein and veggies. I'll try the best compromise between her dietary habits and new needs after surgery toward BTD A pretty new for her ! to forget a good Kamut bread for her will be difficult !
Every kind of advice or moral support is welcome !

Hi Maria,

Sorry to hear about your mother. I would say the best thing for you is to remain as compliant as posible so you can handle everything better and help your mother the best you can. Beware of geting so tangled in the situation you are not able to share peace which is probably the most important.

Best wishes and both of you will be in my prayers.

for post surgery for A's Dr D suggests Vitamin E 2 weeks before surgery and two weeks after to promote healing and Horse Chestnut for inflammation

Look into Helix Pomatia into your mom's  diet...see NAP store...potent blood type A cancer fighter

have your mother eat peanuts in the shell everyday...very anti carcinogenic

and don't forget the soy...tofu...tofu...tofu...agglutinates cancer cells in A's so your immune system can identify them and eradicate them

good luck

Maria Giovanna,

Thanks for letting us know about your mother.  I've already begun to include her in my prayers.  If you let me know what time her surgery is, and how long it might be, I'll be honored to pray for her during that time.

Love to you and your mom,

Myra.

Maria Giovanna,
I hope that your mother did well in surgery and that she will have a speedy recovery.  It's such an insidious disease.  My father had it when he passed away at 87.
I have UC.  I had a test last year for celiac disease and it came back negative.  You both are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jane and Myra,
thank you,  my mother will have her surgery Wednesday 28, we trust the surgeon and the psycological status of my mother  is of negation and we hope thet a light ansiolitic treatment will bring her ready to undergo surgery.
My scare is the post surgery delirium, that could worsen her mental health already slightly impaired; anguish and memory loss.
Grateful for your prayers and all the best for you both !

Maria, do you have the link to that article. I'm just about positive my g/d (granddaugher) has celiac, but my daugher refuses to have her tested because her doctor says she doesn't.        Would like to show her something that will convince her to take this seriously.  Thanks.
Wishing the best for your mother and you too. Will keep you both in my prayers.

Hi Pat these are some links searching for colon cancer and celiac and colon cancer and Crohn's disease. Celiac refractory to gluten free diet i in Pummed is well known to be linked to intestinal T cell lymphoma. see also a mail I am sending to you now.

Maria, I am a colon cancer survivor !  Almost 4 years now !  WOW !  Anyhow, as a result of some post-op situations that cropped up and dr.s refusing to test my blood as I was sure there was something missing or 'in' my blood that shouldn't be there that I was drawn back to the BTD.  I have had amazing healing results since then - 1.5 years later !!  Years ago I couldn't find all the stuff I needed to stick to the diet but now we have better stores and I work at one of them !!

By the way, I am a secretor - much to my surprise !!

Thank you again,
today my mother underwent surgery and this had a perfect result. The wake up from anesthesia was difficult to deal with, she wanted to go to the toilet, dress up herself and go back home. Luckily she could sleep a little bit (without further drugs) and after she was more able to deal with the facts and to understand her needs.
Few days and I hope for the best !
Maria Giovanna

Maria Giovanna,

I am so thankful that your Mom did so well!  She, and you, will continue to be in my prayers as she recovers.  Please continue to keep us posted.

Much Love,

Myra.

Do any of you or anyone you all know that is on the BTD have Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease? IF SO, how are you/he/she coping with the diet and have there been any complications involving your IBD after beginning the BTD?

My gastroenterologist has a patient with Crohn's that is doing quite well on the BTD and she recommended it to him, and him to me.

I am currently a Facilitator for the Hampton Roads Support Group for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. I am very curious to see how this BTD affects others with these diseases. If it has gone over well, I may distribute information about it to our support groups in the area.

Thanks!

PS: Crohn's Disease and Colitis are Inflamatory Bowl Diseases similar to Irritable Bowl Syndrome.

Hi TypeAchica,

Welcome to the forum!


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.


I did a search of the ResultsBase just using the word "colitis" and these are the entries I got back.

post is in two parts because it's too long.

Comments      In addition to gradual weight loss of 27 lbs., I am no longer having bad migraines. I am also not ruled by cravings. I have very little desire for any other food other than the beneficials and neutrals lists. The book's lists are consistent with my own personal experience. I had colitis as a child as well as bad tonsilitis. I also have terrible reactions to dairy. The big change for me is eliminating wheat. I very much appreciate the book and so far I have given or recommended it to over 30 people. Some are so desperate and this is the first thing that consistently works. I am also being followed by my own naturopath and the plan is consistent with her recommendations but adds alot more valuable details. I gave the book to her (Rhea Goudreau) and I believe she had contacted you. She also is very excited about the book and the results. Thanks so much.

Comments      I have tried all kinds of diets since I taught healing at New York University in 1973-1974. I even tried to be vegetarian. I still intermittenly suffered with 30 years of ulcerative colitis and thyroid problems. For the past fifteen years I have been practically symptom free as I went through menopause and changed my life. I moved from New York to Arizona and opted for a quieter life style. But I still had to be careful with my diet. Since I work with healers I was already off of most wheat products and dairy products. I got my blood typed after noticing your book. Then I bought the book and was astounded to read that O's suffer from colitis and thyroid deficency -- my two ailments. At 63 I started your diet and I am slowly changing my eating. But with just the few changes -- I am back on meat -- my energy has increased, my bowel is healthy, I am happier. I still do not eat a big steak but I am getting there. I remembered that when I had colitis I usually craved raw roast beef and fresh fish. I am now an advocate. Oh, and I have lost weight. I didn't plan to lose weight but I have. I getting back to my lean and mean before menopause body. I know I should do more active exercise. I always loved to dance. I tried yoga and Tai Chi and now Chi Gong and they just don't do it. So I will ride my bike and dance! Thank you.

Comments      Dear Dr. D.I hope you don't mind if I ramble abit here. I feel like I want to get my story out in case it can help others...You may remember my posts on your web site. So if some info is seems repeated ...sorry.I have had 'Ulceritive Colitis' for many years and the only help the physicians can offer me at this time is Prednisone or Surgery. I'm allergic to all other meds they have for inflammation. I opt for the pred. I was so sick in '92 I ended up in a coma for few weeks after being in the hospital for over a month with feeding tubes in my central artery. The Dr's were trying to get me strong enough so I'd survive the colon surgery they wanted to perform. They had this new surgery they were excited about 'trying' on me. I forget what it's called, but they remove the entire colon and create a bag at the end of the small intestine and then reattach it internally... keeping everything nice and tidy inside rather than having a bag...course you have to be on stool hardening meds for the rest of your life. They said if it didn't work the worst thing is I'd have a bag on the outside for the rest of my life. I was only 33...to young to be going through this for sure. All the other people I called to get support who had this surgery with the bag on the belly, were in their 50's and 60's. Anyways I just couldn't believe I was so sick they wanted to take my colon out. Luckily...I woke up from the coma in total remission. Left the hospital with my colon in tact. Phew!! That was close. Thought stress caused my condition (the only thing the Doctors could figure out) so I immediately left my thriving Bed & Breakfast business in Beacon Hill in Boston to move to the country and semi-retire.Thought the hell was over. Wrong!! Now I was just living further away from the hospital I ended up in every year after that with severe flare ups!I'm telling you this because I want you to realize the severity of my condition. I've been hospitalized six times! In '92 I almost died! The Doctors ONLY recommended meds and told me surgery was the best thing for me. If I didn't do it now they said...someday I was going to have to have my colon removed because it's so debilitated or it just may burst... then I wouldn't have to worry anymore at all. (Real Comforting).No one ever explained what colitis was caused from besides stress...unresolved grief...or anger. After many years with this condition and many medical doctors and psychotherapists...I realize they don't know what causes it or what will cure it. I thought as long as I still have my colon there's hope for healing or at least keeping it in tact with prednisone. Now, I should tell you...I was, and still am, a health nut. Have been since my teens. Stopped eating meat after my son was born in '83. And isn't it funny... that's when I started with colitis. After many months of having colitis and not knowing what it was... I remember asking my Mom, 'Why do I have WHITE bowel movements in the morning?'...I thought it so completely bizarre! 'I don't know Dear...maybe you should go see a doctor?' NO WAY! I hated doctors. I'll figure it out myself! SO my search for greater understand began. (I'm a 'Hunter" type for sure)! I became even more of a health fanatic. I was diagnosed with colitis...(figured out what the 'white stuff' was... my mucosa lining shedding)... and it turned into ulceritive colitis in '89. I ate only clean-organic 'vegatarian' diet. Drank distilled water. I was so into my health I used to fast and have colon hydrotherapy done. Accupuncture, polarity, massage.... I worked out all the time. I had frequency therapies, color therapy...you name it - I was trying it and studying it. NOTHING was helping me. Not even the best known Dr.'s in all the different fields across the country. NO ONE could help me!BECAUSE...NO ONE... ever... mentioned..."YOU can't be a vegatarian Colleen! YOUR Blood Type O says all

Comments      I was suffering from extreme fatigue, which my doctor said was mainly untreatable as it was malaise, contacted after a sever bout with bronchittis. My doctor claimed it would take up to six months for me to recover. He put me on a grain based diet to combat the weight gain that inactivity had caused. I started gaining weight even more rapidly and my fatigue increased (which caused me to be more than a little depressed). A friend recommended your diet and I was only on it a week before I was back to full activity. I lost ten pounds and had to start eating more of the nuetral foods, so that I could lose weight more safely. I have been recommending your book to everyone that I know--my mother, who has suffered colitis symptoms for years (three of her favorite foods are on the don't eat list, for her type) my best friend, whose mother died of breast Cancer earlier this year, (she and her mother are bvoth type As) and to my vegitarian sister in LA, who has been frustrated for years, by her inability to keep off the weight, in spite of never eating meat and eating lots of grains. And my daughter, who is type A, has no evidence of the heart disturbances she was born with. I am usually skeptical about natural remedies, having grown up in Davenport Iowa and seen many chiropracters who went over-boaord, claiming that they could cure someone by waving a bottle of vitamins over the body and such. I approached your diet plan with more than a few resevations, but the proof is in the way I feel, as far as I am concerned. I am glad to hear that you are continuing your research and fine tuning the process, because I really believe that diet and exercise are the keys to healthy living. (I found the section of your book which dealt with stress to be particularly enlightening. I recently went from a high stress position to a low stress position and couldn't understand why I felt more stress in the less stressful setting. When I read your book, it hit me that in the more stressful setting, I was constantly in motion and I did not feel the stress. In the new setting, I am unable to move around and the least bit of stress throws me for a loop. I have actually set a goal to find a more physical type of employment, based on some of the ideas presented in your book. (I won't hold you responsible if I hate the job. I just realized that I am happier doing something more physical.) Which brings me to a final observation--actually, I could go on all day, but I doubt you have that sort of time--I have noticed a major decrease in the amount of depression that I have experienced in the past few weeks. Some of the current depression was due to inertia and weight gain, but I also have a family history of clinical depression. I have been resistant to correcting this problem with drugs, as I hate the idea of putting unnatural substances into my body, but there have been periods of time when combatting this problem have made me consider taking this approach. When I switched to your diet, the first thing that surprised me, a few days into the process was a feeling of general well-being. It wasn't quite euphoric, but it was defintily a much happier sensation than I was used to having and it has continued, in spite of a high amount of stress in my life. I personally believe that whatever was causing the original chemical imbalance was related to diet. I think your research is invaluable and want to thank both you and your father for opening the door to further research.

In addition to my Crohn's and UC I also have several other health problem which I am hoping may die down a bit once I start this diet.  I am going to a bookstore tommorow to get ER4YT!

From what I understand, this diet may also help reduce my problems with Asthma, Scoliosis (muscle disfunction), severe allergies, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease, and my low immune system.

I'm crossing my fingers for now.  It will be a bit harder to eat out, but I think I could get used to it all.  If this helps maybe I won't be 5'6", 24yr old, 178lb, walking "death" any more :cp

check typebase for the latest updates in food values, since there have been changes from the publication of LRFYT.

get a hold of the allergy book, too, for more targeted advise.

I would recommend you pick up the book LIVE RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE.  This is the book where Dr. D explains secretor status, which you can also read about in the online Tutorial

With all the health issues you have mentioned, your best, most important step would be to have your secretor status determined.  What this will do is fine tune your diet for quicker results, and optimum health.  The Type A nonnie diet is dramatically different from the A secretor diet with around 27 foods changing status.  Between all the four types, the A nonnie diet is the only one with so many foods changing status.

Best of luck to you typeAchica, and please let us know how you are progressing, and keep asking questions!

I also second Lola's recommendation to get the ALLERGY book, where food values are broken down even more to target specific health issues, and specific supplement protocols are recommended to assist in recovering your health for that condition.


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.

Thank you Pat,
she is not compliant at all anf I cannot push it, beacause My brother has helped a lot but don't believe in the scientific and genetic evidences of BTD. He too is probably celiac and nonnie so this make me angry and concerned (he has also a slight hypothyroidism and reflux)
best wishes for your daughter and grandaughter
Have a nice Sunday !

Maria,
Sometimes all we can do is nothing.  Our loved ones have the right to choose how they live their lives and what they eat, just as we do.  It's good news that she is recovering well.  That's a good thing, and if she is happy and interested in doing things, that will help her recover even faster.  



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.

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
