ditto magnesium has been awesome for restless legs & constipation. Green tea is a cornerstone for me, and so too little things like curry powder, fresh herbs, garlic & ginger..

Also you may be interested in making your own spelt / millet bread.. there is a great thread here discussing adapting the recipe -started after Dr D blogged a how-to video he found on youtube for no-knead bread-making that is easy and delicious if you are into that sort of thing, thought i would mention it.

Ditto on the magnesium citrate, 400 mg a day for me. Helped with leg cramps and no more kidney stones.


Hello, i have question about magnesium citrate if  Phytocal for B and AB Type say better magnesium oxide. Magnesium citrate is for O and A Type. Or it is the same? magnesium citrate = magnesium oxide?
Thank for answer
Andy

I take oxide and am fine with it...besides, it is the only one I can get down here with no avoids or binders.

The magnesium citrate was recommended to me by the owner of my local health food shop, another B BTW. He is a NAP distributor and carries all the books. He went to the national meeting 2 or 3 years ago. I stopped by his store to pickup a box of unibars and some shaving cream(sodium laurel sulfite free)and he was introducing a B and O couple to the program this afternoon.

It seems to work fine for me anyway.

i just did today in fact..it mentions people thinking lactose intolerances are allergies, when they're really just intolerances...and then says what a real milk protein allergy is..which i have..and i just find it so weird that i have it because of how good dairy is supposed to be for type B's..but i'm hoping that maybe this diet will get me back into balance and it will go away..i developed it later in life so i'm hoping it will go away in time

you will be very pleased with the results!
it all depends on your level of compliance and how you tweak it according to your needs.

Dear MM
how sad for you- well even B´s can get real milkallergy

I agree with Lola - get the allergy book and follow it very closely ( except for the dairy)

Maybe try small amounts of milk after 6 months or so....

Some people outgrow their casein allergy- others dont  

Have you looked into the Theory (controversy) about A 1 vrsus A2 milk ?


Another aspect of the milk is whether the beta-casein component of the protein is A1 type or A2 type. Although it's not conclusive at this stage, research done at Lincoln University, in New Zealand, has shown correlations between A1 milk and diseases such as heart disease and Type 1 diabetes. These diseases have no such correlations with A2 milk.

Originally, all milk was A2.
About 5000 years ago there was a mutation in Europe and the A1 genes spread through cow herds.
These days:
Goats and sheep milk is equivalent to A2 milk, as is human milk.
Heirloom breeds tend to have more A2, -newer breeds - A1.
Different countries have a different mix between the two.
For example, Iceland is mainly A2, where Finland is more A1. the level of heart disease is higher in Finland.
Masai and other African cattle only produce A2 milk, which is significant when you consider that the Masai are very healthy on a diet of mainly meat, blood and fermented milk, with little heart disease.
There is some A2 milk and cream available in New Zealand, try your organic store.

Type of cows

Holstein or Friesian cows are commonly used for producing dairy as they have a higher milk yield. But more isn’t necessarily better. To achieve this, they are bred to have higher levels of growth hormone, which is undesirable for feeding to children, unless they have growth deficiency diseases.milk from Jersey or  especially Guernsey cows ),which has these characteristics:

It is usually predominantly A2 milk
Lower production of milk per cow, which means the available vitamins are more concentrated in the milk
A higher quantity of cream, so rich in the fat soluble factors
Generally seems to have a superior taste

From
http://www.frot.co.nz/dietnet/basics/milk.htm
So if I should add milk back in my diet AFTER a long brak without it- I would go for
sheep, goat or Guernsey milk.

And if that doesn´t work- live with the sad fact  that milk is not for me....

Thanks for the info Henriette, I never know about the Type A1 & A2 milk.  It makes sense, if humans are not all alike inside why should all cows be the same.

wow that is very interesting about the A1 and A2 milk..because I tolerate goat's milk and cheese just fine..and I would honestly be fine with never having cow's milk..if i could just find a compliant goat yogurt that i don't have to make..i've tried sheep yogurt and i really don't like it...and i've read about liberte goat yogurt online..and it seems like it might be compliant..so i'm trying to find it in local stores..i feel like yogurt would just be another great source of protein especially because its listed as super beneficial

I also developed hay fever later in life and hoping that the BTD will calm the condition. It is most uncomfortable. Will see what happens in June.

I developed hay-fever  and eczema on my hands in my teens- but I must say that BTD has reduced my problems with 75 % ( no more eczema and only a very mild hay-fever and that is fine with me

Yes Lola it is controversial- not so much that there is a difference - cause that has been known for a while....
- but more that all the LARGE scale farmers with Frisians / Holsteins cows etc. all got very upset about the thought that people would start to prefer milk from the small breeds Jersey and Guernsey.
and that their milk might be one of the reasons why milk has such a mixed reputation.

I drink mainly organic jersey milk and I feel great  

Even my daughter who gets rashes/ eczema on her cheeks straight away she has milk- does not have a reaction when she gets raw jersey milk   ( rarely- it is hard to get)


MM sounds like you could be fine with goat milk- or maybe the water-buffalo( A2 milk) as well.
In Waitrose I saw they had water-buffalo ice-cream and yoghurt...

Before the BTD I’d have to take a Benedryl every day in May as soon as I got near my home town.  We’ve got the largest collection of lilacs in the world in Liliacia Park and practically every home, including my own, has lilac bushes in their yards.  Now I can make it through the lilac season Benedryl free.  I still need it when I drive though Michigan past this large patch of many different varieties of flowers.  So keep up with the BTD, your allergies will get better.

I am still waiting on my secretor test results.  After reading other b nonnie posts I was certain I would be a nonnie.  A nonnie is neutral to tomatoes and a regular B they are avoid.  I avoided any and all tomato products for 6 days.  On the 7th day I made chili with diced tomatoes in it and think I may have had a reaction.  Two days later the symptoms went away, ate a leftover bowl of chili and tonight the symptoms seem to be back.

Any B regulars eat tomatoes and have a reaction?  What were your symptoms?

Sometimes in a restaurant I will eat the cherry tomatoes that are in a salad, all the time feeling guilty.  I have no reaction that I'm aware of.

read all about it in the LRFYT book.

Blood Type B Basics: The Blood Type B Individualized Lifestyle.

B nonnies, eat somewhat like Os with a few dairy privileges.

So here's something that's been bugging the heck out of me for awhile now.  Why are tomatoes considered a "red flag" (which is basically "super-avoid", right?) for Bs, when they are neutral for B nonnies?
