give us an idea of what you eat and the lifestyle you lead.

also, which system are you now following, and if you have the meno book.

your secretor test is key, to target your food choices and protocols given in the book.
the whole serotype panel won t hurt, being an A, there might be another clue......every resource is worth looking into, specially if you are going through these hard times.

I have always eaten very healthy.  I stay away from red meat and eat fish, chicken or turkey.  I eat lost of vegetables and fruit according to the BTD A protocol.  I also have the menoapuse book and have implemented that as well.

I'm very active and love to run, fast walking and incorporate weights (now & then).

Just prior to loggin back in, I was in the bathroom looking in the mirror and just started to cry.

I guess if I was married and had a sweetie to support me through this it would be a little easier.  However, when your single, and having to "be out there" in the dating world, it becomes very difficult, and I wouldn't even dream of dating with this hair!  And I have so much love to give.

I eat right, exercise and take very good care of myself and believe in taking very good care of myself -- and yet. . .this hair is falling out.  I just don't understand.

God Bless

what if you found out you were a non secretor.......or if you happened to be a warrior, were you to follow GTD?

certain things in your everyday diet might not be the right things.....
just a thought..

Rose,
I really hear you, girlfriend! It's got to be a terrible feeling....I have very thin hair and really hate it, but it is not falling out...I believe I shrunk the follicles by being a vegetarian for 27 yr.....lack of protein...
but if yours is as bad as it sounds maybe you could get a small fall or wig...until you solve the problem....remember, Jackie O always wore a fall, she had very thin hair!!!!

You might "eat right" for a type A, but if your hair loss is anything relatable to a genetic
glitch or something that can be rewound and repaired through the Genotype Diet, if I
were you, I'd find out my secretor status, body measurements and switch to the Warrior
or Teacher diet. (possibly you're an Explorer).  And then, what you're saying, "I eat right" might
not be as accurately truthful as you think.

For many people without serious issues like yours, the BTD might be great for them...But, long before Dr. D did his research in an entirely different direction...taking into consideration that many diseases and health issues can actually be repaired through the genes themselves, all that was available was the Blood Type Diet.  Now there's more.  And one of the genotype diets might be "THE" right diet that might alter your hormonal imbalance and help you re-grow
your hair.

You're eating chicken, you said..  Warriors don't get chicken ever. It's a toxin food..  And we don't get all fish.. we get specific fish and many are toxins.  And we don't get to eat all vegetables.  A Warrior's diet is low on the glycemic index scale.  So if you're eating "lots" of vegetables, many might be wrong for either a Teacher or a Warrior.  Many that you're eating might elevate your blood sugar and throw off your hormones completely.

I encourage you to think out of the box right now.  If you've done everything you think
you can do, please consider doing one more thing to help yourself.  I consider the
Genotype Diet to be the "state of the art" diet...one that is revolutionary and might have
a better chance of helping you than the one you're on.

Can you please post a list of the foods you ate yesterday so perhaps those reading your
posts and pleas can see if they can help you?

I totally agree with Lola.....it would really be beneficial for you to get your secretor status done and find out your Genotype status.  It's cheaper than a doctor's visit and  it's, in my opinion, valuable information you really should know so you can be on the right diet.

Rose,
I went back to the GTD book to compare the warrior and the teacher profiles.  One difference that may be important is that the Warrior tends to develop "thick blood" with age, and it causes circulation problems.  If you are a warrior, this could affect circulation to the scalp also.  Did you ever take evening primrose oil?  On another thread from some months ago, someone mentioned that a lack of GLA oils could also affect hairloss.  Evening primrose is a diamond oil for warriors.

Another way to tell which type you are is by your fingerprint patterns.   I think teachers have more
whorls, which are pretty distinct.  Warriors have more arch type fingerprints.  Does this help at all?
I do think if you could follow one of these diets, it would be more helpful than just the btd....

Ok, I'm going to send away for the Secretor Status kit.  It's just that I'm so financially struggling due to a divorce, etc.

Is there any way I can get buy without having to order another kit to find out my Genotype?  

so far, my ring finger is longer than my index finger, I have more whorls, and I will try and remeasure my upper and lower torso, and head measurements this weekend.

I thought I was a Warrior, but now someone said Teachers have more Whorls?   It's so confusing!

By any chance is there anyone here familiar with the GenoType that lives in Wisconsin that can help me with my measurements?  I hope, I hope.  I live in Kenosha, Wisconsin which is near the Illinois border.

Many thanks to all of your for your knowledge, compassion and help.  You're simply the greatest!

Rose,
I read that teachers have more whorls.  You mentioned that your Mom and sister have both passed away.  Did they have cancer?  Were they type A's do you know?  Again, these also could be more
teacher.  
I am pretty sure that the link above from Chloe is just for the secretor test only.  You can buy it
separately.  I think it is your best bet to get that test done.  Then go from there.  I hope there is someone nearby who can help you remeasure.....bestest wishes!

Hi Paulam!

My mother passed away of colon cancer, and my sister came down with Guilliam Barre Syndrome (inflammation of the spinal cord) which left her permanently paralyzed from the chest down.  She had partial use of her arms.  She was only 29 yrs old when it happend.  Very sad.  And she passed away 4 years ago.  She was only 49 yrs. old.  I miss them so much!

I have no idea what blood type they were.

In order to figure out my GenoType do I only need to order the secretor test?  I have the GenoType book.

it s all in the book, self explanatory to say the least.

look at the advanced tables starting on page 290....
take all your measurements, watching the videos helps a lot, also the illustrations in the book.

make it a fun experience, not a stressful situation.....
our minds are powerful and we can adapt them to our needs.

Rose,

Knowing you're secretor status makes it more accurate, and easier to do. You can skip a lot of tests and go right to the advanced calculator.

if secretor, you could be a teacher
if non secretor you could be an explorer
since you are RH positive.....

Isn't it the Teacher that has a reversal of finger lengths from hand to hand?  Meaning on one
hand the ring finger could be longer but on the other hand, the index finger might be longer.

Rose...did you notice a discrepancy in finger lengths from hand to hand?

And Lola, couldn't Rose possibly be a Warrior as well, if she finds out she's a secretor?

weew toll all such infos.....I only do the wild yams 3x1
caps. a day and that's all for menopausal issues...ooops not true I added 3mg's of Boron as well. Ok I do still have the hot flashes but they are supportable, I sleep + - well at night but
when I tried all the herbal supps. nothing really worked for me
and I'm convinced that since being on BTD my body is able to detox much quicker....

I'm an ectomorphic Gatherer, my premenopause stuff started in my 30s likely due to accelerated aging from the vegan diet.  I went on the BCP at age 33 to deal with acne, insomnia etc, now wondering if it could have been avoided.  I'm likely on hrt for life...just can't cope without a,lot of estrogen.

Have you considered bio-identical transdermal hormones?  They have positively changed my life!  They don't have to pass through the liver and are identical to the body's own natural hormones, as opposed to being synthetic.  I am estrogen deficient as well, but the bio-identicals have really improved my quality of life
