When I told the gal at the local health-food store (who is well versed in the BTD), she said, "I had a feeling about you!"  Apparently, she had a hunch I was a nonnie, because of my weird little health problems.

Carol if I might be so bold, what wre your quirky little health problems that led someone to believe your were a nonnie?  
 
Thanks,  Trish  an A in waiting

Ummmm. †Not to rain on anyone's parade, but when I got my secretor test the instructions told me I had to either send it out on a Monday or a Tuesday so that the spit would make it to the lab by Friday. †Otherwise, the spit would not be any good. † It had a packing slip in it for DHL to pick it up and I checked off the airmail box when I sent it as it was going from Ontario, Canada to Nova Scotia, Canada. † I spit on a Monday and it went out the same day.

Trish, There is a lot of information on line that you can read to help you understand the differences between secretors and non-secretors.

You can start with the info and link in the Tutorial: http://www.dadamo.com/knowbase/newbie/a.htm

The last link on that page is broken this is what it should be: http://www.dadamo.com/knowbase/subtype/subtype-kb.htm

Here is Dr. Dís overview of secretor vs. non-secretor information in the Knowledge Base: http://www.dadamo.com/napharm/store3/template2/secretor.htm

Carol if I might be so bold, what were your quirky little health problems that led someone to believe you were a nonnie?  



If I weren't so lazy, I'd go looking for what I posted in answer to the same question on another thread.  I can't say for sure what she had in mind, but it could have included any or all of the following:

Spastic colon
Food allergies
Teeth full of fillings
Brain fog
Lack of energy/motivation
Respiratory congestion

Most of the above has improved to one extent or another since I started the BTD.  (My fillings haven't fallen out, though!   )

You're welcome!

In order to quote you, all I did was click on the Quote button at the top of your post, and it automatically took me to the More Post Options page with the Blah Code all set up for your quote and the box.  I just typed in my reply underneath your quote.

If I wanted to focus on one particular portion of a quote (especially if the post was a long one), all I'd have to do is delete the rest of the quote -- being very careful not to delete the Blah Codes inside the square brackets at the beginning and end of the quote.  It's very easy to delete one of the square brackets by mistake, which is why you'll sometimes see something that's trying to be a quote, but it says either "[quote=somebodysname" at the beginning of the quote (without the square bracket that should follow "somebodysname") or "/quote]" at the end of the quote (without the square bracket that should go before the "/" sign).

Sue -- if you mean my previous list of health problems, I'll look later tonight & see if it's still around.

Yay!

If you click the Modify button of your first try, you'll see that you accidentally deleted the Blah Code at the end of the quote (compare to your second try, by clicking the Modify button on that one).  Once you have a little more experience with the Blah Codes, you can just hit Modify and edit your post to fix any errors that you've spotted.  (I bet nobody always gets it right the first time -- just count all of the revisions on, say, my most recent post!)

it's not just the tomatoes.. it's the dang chili peppers that I love as well.

Can I be a closet nonnie?
Count me in. I haven't been able to give up the cayenne at home or chilis when I eat Mexican or Thai.

Tomatoes and peppers are only Tier Two Avoids for A secretors.  If you're basically healthy, an occasional Mexican meal shouldn't hurt anything.

Well, I've officially been a sectretor for nearly 2 months now and I have to say it's not so bad.
I've managed to wean myself off the foods not so good for me and into a pattern of real healthy eating.
My stomach feels all the better for it and some weight loss, as a bonus.
If I do eat something not too good, but enjoyable (treat!!) I know it's not the end of the world and take it for what it is.

Who would have thought it - I was so disappointed to find that I was a secretor but it really is OK!!!

Hi all,

I just got the books from the library. I also bought the small A food guide and the encyclopedia. I will be recieving my saliva test in a few days. I just wanted to say hello.

I feel that I am probably a non-secretor. I have just been treated for my 5th intestinal infection. I have been extremely ill with attacks of vomiting, diarrhea, shaking and palpitations that last 6 hours. Toward the end of the attack I get short of breath. Benadryl helps. I have figured out that it is reactions to foods. My doctor said that I have leaky gut. I am extremely intolerant to molds and yeast so I don't eat those things or dried fruit at all.

I also have one of the genes for celiac disease,(found out about 2 years ago in my search for health.) I was a vegetarian for 10 years before that, but did not do well. I suppose that it was because I was eating wheat and dairy. Now I am only eating eggs, meats, veggies,fruits and nuts and feel much better. I started taking betaine after reading the book. It has helped my bloating after jsut a few days. I am almost 5'9 and weigh 128. I can't gain weight to save my life.

I am also the typical personality for A, sensitive, need a lot of quiet, love alone time, would rather listen than talk, don't like crowds. I never watch disturbing movies, I wouldn't be able to sleep and would think about it for days!

I will make sure that I meditate and do yoga every day. I am looking foward to learning a lot about my blood type!

Have a great day.
Sincerely,
June

P.S. Where do you get the lists of secretor versus non-secretor foods? Thank you. JV

Iím not sure which books you have, but you can find out through them.  For individual foods and to resolve a conflict between older and newer books, look at the type base on line. http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm

You can also order a wallet card when you find out your secretor status.

Many of us make individualized Excel spread sheets.

Well, a very big welcome to you June and i hope you will enjoy participating in the BTD forum.

So sorry that you have so many health issues but I think that's one of the reasons that many people come on board!

I just know this way of life is going to help you, along with all the good advice which will soon be forthcoming.

You are right to go straight ahead and find out whether you are a secretor/non secrector - this will help you fine tune your eating habits.

Once again, welcome.....

June welcome!
typebase has all food values, and you can always check it when in doubt or want to create your own list.

check Dr D s health series books, also, for more targeted information, once you get your test results.

Hi June,
You are really on the right track, and it's great that you've already done your secretor test.  I would also guess that you are a nonnie, but sometimes we get surprised!  

I think most of your questions will be answered in the book LR4YT.  It explains the secretor status, along with much more detailed information for each blood type.  And it has quantity and frequency recommendations for foods, which has been very helpful for me in fine-tuning my diet.

It's a good thing that you already know you are celiac, so you don't continue damaging your gut.  There are definately some things that will help.  One is Ghee, and the NAP formula, Intrinsia.  Lots of people use it for healing leaky gut and improving intestinal health in general.  Click HERE.



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.

Thank you everyone for your replies! They were very helpful.

I'd like to know what people eat for breakfast. I have been eating eggs sauteed with veggies and a little olive oil. I think that maybe I have been eating too much protein. I haven't had grains for breakfast because of the celiac thing.

Victoria, I haven't done the test yet, I ordered it.

Thanks again, have a great day.
Sincerely,
June

Hi June,
Thanks for the clarification.    Soon, you'll know, and then your meal planning should get a little easier.  

You could start a thread on What do A's eat for breakfast? .  We all like to talk about what we eat!!
