I just found out I am a non-secretor. Not sure what to think... What do I need to know, do, etc, now




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

As a Type O very little. Many Type O on here that are nonnie prefer no grains. Corn is even worse for you than a secreter.

Change your avatar headline I guess.

Hey Pardner!     Welcome to the Nonnie club.     As a non-secretor, just follow your food list and that will be provided for you either with your Genotype book, or your Swami, depending on which one you work with.  That part is made simple for you.

My strong belief is that nonnies have less leeway to be careless with our bodies.  This is why I am so utterly motivated to follow my GTD diet, because I have come to see how I was destroying my health.  Eating right for your type will tilt the scales back in your favor so that you will be able to improve your health, normalize your weight, heal your body and avoid many, if not all, of the diseases that you were headed toward, because of your own inherited tendencies.

So . . it's all good!  



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.

Victoria~ I finished the ER4YT a week or so ago and have just received my LR4YT and was waiting until I knew my secretor status before beginning it.

I think someone mentioned we have more options with food as a nonnie

Heeelllllooooooo Golfzilla...welcome to our world.  Come on in and sit down in the nonnie clubhouse.  Your best bet is to read that book you just got and then things will start to make sense.  Any questions...and you will have some   ask away...we are all here for you.  Enjoy.

Just got my DH secretor status, yesterday. He is an A+ nonnie,  and has many migraines. Just ordered his SWAMI yesterday. My gut feeling is he'a an explorer. I go back and forth between that and teacher.

Do the tendons on his wrist show? I have been having migraines the last week. When I was a child I had them or headaches, not sure. Tylenol and a nap use to fix it. Now only flaxseed does.

I am visiting my father and he has a bunch of non-stick pans I am wondering if they have anything to do with it. That or candida coming back and forth or something... I got no idea.

Thank you to all for the warm welcome to Nonnieville. When I first found out it felt like the wind had been taken out of my sails and I'm not sure why However reading this and beginning my journey through LR4YT last evening it's felling better

Thank you all for your advice and encouragement

What now?  Well, get used to figuring out your own health problems and being direct with the doctor about what you need.  I don't think doctors know what to do with me, besides shaking their heads and offering antidepressants

Plucky~ Ironic, I have benn going through this with MD's for years. Having to be very strong (not an issue with me) with them and at time almost having to argue with them. And this is all good as I am very much one who has to have answers/research to make decisions good for me.

Golf~  I usually just end up leaving in tears and then go do my own thing.  I've just recently gotten mad enough to stand up for myself and tell the doctor that if she wouldn't order what I wanted I'd just find an independent lab to do my allergy testing.   Now I'm a little nervous about seeing her today     Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to do without docs when it comes to monitoring my anemia and getting the allergy meds I need certain times of the year, and BTD/GTD isn't a miracle cure for everything, especially if you end up being allergic to some of your beneficial/diamond foods.

I am grateful for the fact that my non-secretor status was a wake-up call for me.  When I thought I was a secretor, I was not as consistent with the BTD and I didn't take it quite so seriously.  Once I realized I am a nonnie, I dived in wholeheartedly!  This will probably lengthen my life because my health has improved so much over the years of working this program.

Something like 20% of people are non-secretors, and 80% of people who present in doctor's offices with health problems are non-secretors.  Mostly, doctors don't know what to do with us, because they don't understand.

of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Hmmm, we could lend them a good book to read   It's about time they get a grip on reality!

I have to say, I kinda like being a nonnie.  I might have a bunch of oddball health issues, but I very rarely suffer with a cold or the flu, unlike everyone else around me, and as long as I stick to BTD those other issues are pretty minimal.
