Hello all!

A friend of mines mother (type B) has been diagnosed with hemolytic anemia. The problem, aside from the obvious, is her insurance covered options are a choice of 2 different types of chemo., a spleenectomy, or Rituximab injections. Steroids and transfusions have already been tried without any success. She does not like any of these choices.

Another family member suggested a person who is a licensed chiropractor with extensive experience using The Sunfood Diet (David Wolfe for those who've not heard of it before) and claims to have been able to reverse this particular condition in the past in a few people. They have already done fingerprinting, hair analysis and a few other tests and are waiting for the results. The patient would prefer to give this person's ideas a chance, but has very limited resources going out-of-pocket rather than covered with insurance.

I don't really like any of the choices, but don't have any ideas to offer her/them as alternatives. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you in advance!

Lectins could be part of her problem. Explorers are more prone to this type of problem. She needs to avoid corn, chicken, peanut, and soy lectins for type B for a start. I'm surprised the steroids haven't worked even though they have long term side effects.

Rituxin would probably work for her, but it too has some side effects. I thing getting the offending lectins out of her diet will help long term. Hope she can figure out a solution soon.

Hi Lola!

Thanks for the replys.

As an update: the hair analysis results showed extreme poisoning, especially lead, so she is currently undergoing chelating/detox after being released from the hospital (another transfusion).

Pesto made with cilantro.

I know on one of Dr. D's lecture CD's he talks about blood problems and how they go away on the blood type diet. I know I looked it up one day and they recommended the blood type diet right on the site.

Not a fan of  David Wolfe, more one size fits all blah blah
