Hello Everyone,

I am an "O" type.  I have a medical condition called dystonia - an involuntary muscle tremor in my neck. One of the common denominators among people who suffer from dystonia is that a high percentage of us have thyroid conditions.  I, myself, have hypo thyroidism.  

There aren't any cures for dystonia and I haven't found a treatment that works for me.  I want to try "eating right" to focus on keeping a healthy thyroid.

Does anyone else have dystonia and/or have you found a way to relieve the symptoms at all through diet or vitamins?  

Also, there is some nice manna bread at my health food store with hemp as an ingredient.  I couldn't find Hemp in my Type O List book.  Is it a beneficial, neutral or avoid food for Type Os?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions you may have!

Hi Mona Lisa,  welcome to the forum

I'm on the Genotype diet and I'm an O. Hemp is listed as either a beneficial or a diamond beneficial for all three genotype an O can be. As long as there aren't anyother avoid in your bread enjoy.

Thanks for the welcome deblynn3!  

Thank you also for the information about hemp.  I just have the Eat Right for your Type book.  I don't know much about the Genotype diet.  Do you feel healthier following the Genotype diet?

I'm not type O, nor have I been diagnosed with Dystonia.  

From my experience, however, this diet will allow your body to fix whatever is wrong with it.  When I started, I was so sick that I was having recurrent pneumonia due to chronic fatigue.  According to my practitioner, the chronic fatigue was due to multiple environmental sensitivities...  Simplified term was "allergies to foods, chemicals and environmental substances such as pollen, dust, mold, etc...  While I haven't finished healing, I have gotten a really good start and have been healing things that I didn't know could heal.  Life keeps getting better!  

Eat Right 4 Your Type is an excellent starting point.  Since it is quite a while since publication, some of the food ratings have changed due to later research.  You can look at the Typebase here for the latest ratings.

The Genotype Diet is more specific as it take several more individual characteristics into account, but SWAMI is the best available at this time.
Much success in your journey!

I would suggest trying the detoxification protocol for a month and after completing it do metabolic enhancement protocol for a month:

http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/22.html

Some other approaches to consider (you may have already tried these):
Biofeedback, Meditation, Acupuncture/Accupressure, Yoga


MIfHI                            I follow a SWAMI diet.

Welcome, Mona Lisa!

The only other thing I'd suggest for now is to get your secretor status tested when you're able.  It will allow you to follow the Blood Type Diet more accurately, and also help you fine-tune the Protocols.

LR4YT is the basic blood type book, after you finish the introductory one you're on now.  You can certainly hold steady at that level for as long as you want, while you get to know yourself from the standpoint of your blood type.  Whenever you want to, or now, if you're so inclined, you can start reading about the Genotype diet (or not).  It's more individualized and I personally find it more healing.  But I followed the BTD for 10 years before it came available, and loved it too.  The SWAMI takes blood type and genotype into account, plus a lot more characteristics that are your own.

No matter what our health issues, these personalized programs will give our bodies the best shot at healing and improving our well-being.  



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.

Have you tried magnesium oil?  It's a simple, little miracle for many people.  there is a thread about it on this forum that you can find if you do a search.  Magnesium is great for "spasmy" kinds of things.  I'm not positive that it would help dystonia, but I'd definitely look into it.  Good luck!
