I know for me... I am not compliant 100% and probably never will be.  I'd have to stay home 24/7 and cook all the time in order to do that.  Being a musician, I do the absolute best I can but it ain't perfect and never will be.  That is the reality I face and if I'm not wrong, many face that same reality.

I know that in the arthritis book Dr. D. himself mentions how his neck and shoulders were getting really tight and so he took at look at really his diet and realized he could be more compliant with more of the beneficials and his diet in general.

Plus being a sugar addict since I was a child (compulsive overeater), any time of regime where I feel restrained or limited or am told I can never have something again, I rebel against.  So I try not to lay any heavy hard core trips on myself like that.  I do try to eat things that make my body feel good and for the most part all of the O foods make me feel good - some actually don't... but occasionally I have a treat that is not under the O guidelines.  

We all have to work with ourselves and our idiosyncrities in all things in life.  

Food is a big one since it affects so much how we feel emotionally and physically.

Some people smoke until they are 90 and die in their sleep.  Others smoke just a little and die of cancer.  Stress is the true killer.  A friend of mine who just had breast cancer surgery was very worried about not being able to have her crispy creme donuts anymore and her doctor told her "if you crispy creme donuts make you happy, eat them."  

It's the happiness that really determines so much of how we react internally.  I ate popcorn for years and years and didn't feel the negative affects and it sure made me damn happy to eat it!  If I eat it now (now that it is on a no no list for me), i feel effects and they aren't good.   Is that because I've now been told that and 'believe it,?" or....because i'm older now and my body can't take it... it's probably alot of things including the blood type science.

The bottom line is I think we have to pull from many sources for our health and well being and we each have to choose what 'we feel' is best for us.

I feel effects of avoids on me now because I've cleaned up my diet, and an avoid stands out more. Also, it's not all in my head, because I've eaten stuff with avoids unknowingly, and started reactions before finishing the food! Then read the labels on ingredient containers & learned my lesson - read those labels FIRST. Oh well. That said, I love popcorn, but popcorn hates me, and how sick it makes me feel makes it easier to keep my mitts out of the MANY bags that get popped every afternoon in the office! Sigh.

Lectin damage can take years before you actually "feel" it, and are aware that you've literally inflammed a good portion of your small intestinal villi.

One of the reasons it takes some so long to be aware of it is because their immune system is literally trying to swim upstream, the load is so hard it's working over time just to maintain a delicate balance.

One of the reasons individuals can immediately telll when they've eaten an avoid is the immune system is functioning at a more efficient level, and is able to sound the alarm so to speak.


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.

Before coming to this message board I had heard of Dr. D’Adamo’s work. I have ordered his book to become more familiar with his recommendations.

It was mentioned that women of the future may have a different experience with menopause and it would appear the future is now. Here is a link to an article that shows women are experiencing menopause at an older age than women just 80 years ago. The author attributes the later age of onset to better nutrition.

Thanks for posting that link, Beth. Also, remember that of any food things listed in the books, the most up-to-date info is here on the site, as in Typebase. For example, in Eat Right 4 Your Type, tho beer was listed as Neutral for O's, updated studies led it to be downgraded to an Avoid for O's. Most of the info stays the same, but I always double-check anyway.

I have my own theory--I think it's because of our hormone laden food supply.

Thanks, again, Beth for joining the discussion here.

Love,

Myra

I agree with you on this one Myra.

How To Stop Menopause Before it Starts

!


Admittedly I haven't read the book, and neither am I tempted to do so, because at 61 I can honestly say that not having to bother with hormonal surges and menstruation is one of the really GOOD things about getting older!

Quoted from Beth Rosenshein
Is this a normal process? Having experienced it I would say it is as normal as any other part of our body aging. For instance, every person over 50 will need reading glasses. It happens to everyone so it's normal. Do we ignore it? No, we wear glasses. Same thing for our teeth, joints, hearing, etc.


You may want to pick up the anti-aging book also and see how our foods can help us all.  

Glad to hear that you are interested.

Debra

P.S. And...the Eat Right and the Live Right and the encyclopedia and...I could keep on going.

Understand that the Healh Library books are adjunct books to Dr. D'Adamo's main books Eat Right 4 Your Type, and Live Right 4 Your Type.  In these books, Dr. D'Adamo goes into detail outlining lectin theory, the effect of polyamines in the body, as well as how "gene linkage" most likely plays a role in determining the level of stomach acid produced by the different blood types, different brain chemicals and the breast cancer gene discovered in 1984.

I would also consider spending some time reading Dr. D's wiki, The Individualist where you can find a considerable amout of scientific evidence to support his theories.

Maybe in time you will share your blood type with us, and what your diet, stress levels, and exercise regemin has been like.  It would also be interesting to know, if, (and if you were willing to share it) as a bio-medical engineer, if at any time in your work career you were exposed to chemical agents, and for how long a period.

Thanks for all of the information. I look forward to learning more about this topic. As for chemical exposure, I am very fortunate that I haven't had any.
