Dr D'adamo, ny question is ' what is the 'missing link' between food allergies and blood type'?
I have your book and it has great information. I have also recently read the book called "Friendly food (Prince Alfred hospial allergy unit- Sydney)- the essential guide to avoiding allergies additives and problem chemicals.; In your blood type charts, comparted to similar food charts in Friendly Food (FF), some of the food recommendations do not match, e.g. Type B diet, cashews should be avoided, whereas in FF cashews are safe as having low natural food chemicals. I'm wondering if you have researched into the relation between Blood types and allergies, including the salicylates, amines and glutamate. If I consumed some of the foods you suggest as highly beneficial, as Type B, they actually affect me. I'm trying to figure out how it is that salicylates etc can interfere with the Blood type diets. I am wondering what it is the missing link or factor that does not allow allergy prone people to follow their blood type foods. e.g could it be stress, genetic etc....Thank you very much.

welcome!!

I reckon you are a blood type B

check out the health series Allergies book written by Dr D
http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=ED062S
allergies are pretty much personalized and are NOT a one size fit all, never-the less, people facing allergy issues, surprisingly can begin introducing their superfoods and beneficials, according to their BT/GT depending which system they decide to follow....after they ve healed their gut dysbiosis and ecosystem.

surprisingly, your blood type or genotype guidelines and lifestyle will help that healing process tremendously

check out all the tools Dr D has made available for you to reach that balance
http://www.4yourtype.com/products.asp?dept=16
http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/index.htm

Important is you write a food log and note your results periodically

ask away, we are here to help

The BTD and FF are not looking at the same things.  Dr. D'Adamo uses Lectins, Secretor status, Stomach acid and much more to determine if a food is appropriate for one Blood Type or another.

An Allergy to a certain food would be more of an individual thing.

The FF is a one size fits all type approach which is the opposite of ERFYT, GTD or SWAMI.

Hello Possum- apologies for the late reply- am trying to work around this forum and did not set my preferences to receiving the emails....Just briefly I am still researching and am reading Peter's book but I still can't seem to find blood type matching with allergies and food intolerances that Royal prince alfred hospital Syd reseraches and include in their publications.
I am unable to consume foods that should match my blood type as they cause me physical etc discomfort. I will research more into the forum tips above from others who kindly responded to my querie...let me know also what you come across.....thanks for contacting me- Paris

Hi Paris - no worries From what I have just been reading & posted elsewhere, in relation to sulphites, this interesting link* came up...I am thinking that maybe the recent higher levels of salicylates being bred into fruit & veg & the continued use of sulphides as pesticides, may be two of the reasons that some of us struggle more than others, with these things

* Erin Brockovich and Endosulfan (sulphites) pesticide.
Here is the news article:http://www.news.com.au/feature.....frflp0-1226075604359

Interestingly enough, on the salicylate sensitive site I'm also on, there is a thread discussing desensitizing via chilies... Obviously once again there is no one size fits all, but personally (happily) chilies are on my beneficial list & I am finding my skin irritations are less & I have recently taken to adding habanero pepper sauce to my meat

Hello Possum- that was quick..yes you as others are right- there is no one size fits all. Yes sulphites are a nightmare. thanks for your link- will check it out.  Chillies? gee, too hot for me.
Looks like we are using our bodies as testing fields to see what works and what does not. We've been brought up believing that all foods are vital for a balanced diet..the 5 food group theories....gee, how wrong it is......would be perfect if all kids/ babies were tested somehow to start eating right from young. No wonder most people are ill with something- we have been eating so many wrong foods for our type, plus all the toxins added by the governments. I noticed each type I ate quinoa I became ill...after some calls and research, yes, it's gluten free and pure, but there seems to be a toxin sprayed on it that if not washed out leaves one very ill, as I become each time I consume this- very very ill. If you google it, you'll be surprised- this is a full time job researching foods that affect us- thank goodness for the internet! many thanks

Sure is a full time job & as you say TG for the internet - otherwise we'd be camped out at the library each & every day
Yeah I had trouble with quinoa... Only saw recently on another site re the recommendations on rinsing & more rinsing of it...you would think/hope they'd have put that on the packet eh?

"For the longest time I had a really hard time eating quinoa.  The smell of it would bother me and the taste of it would make me nauseous, if not sick.
The suggested way to cook quinoa, is to rinse it, then cook it like you would rice: simmer quinoa in water until it absorbs all the water; fluff with fork.
Have you seen the water once quinoa has simmered for a while?  It looks like pee (sorry, but it does) and smells awful (at least to me, anyways), if not rancid..."The better way to cook quinoa « MAID in Alaska

The saponins occur naturally on the quinoa to keep bugs from eating the "grains."  If the quinoa isn't rinsed to remove the saponins prior to preparation for sale, the user should rinse it several times to remove this chemical...

Allergies can be set during times of trauma, but can also essentially be caused by sensitivity or leakage in the intestines...  Healing the digestive tract to remove any "leakage" should reduce many symptoms, although I have still had to continue my allergy elimination to keep from having reactions to some items...

Put that quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and hold it under cold running water, mixing it with your hand while the water runs through the grain.  Be thorough with this step and it *should* make for a better tasting grain.

Hi Victoria- yes I do that under running water but just for a minute.....must be longer I assume? I'm afraid to eat it again after the way I feel.... I did not use my hands etc as you suggest- but many thanks for the tip- I googled it and found that may be the cumprit also- Paris

There is only 1 Deflect B, as far as I know...  I have utilized Deflect AB, Polyflora AB, and Intrinsa for healing digestive problems.  The Deflect helps remove attached lectins, Polyflora assists in re-establishing the proper probiotic mix, and Intrinsa provides nutrition for helping the intestinal cells heal.

Hi, Paris. I am blood type A-. I have lots and lots of allergies and food sensitivities, including dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, bananas, oranges, strawberries,and sunflower. Some foods are on my Dr. D's "avoid" lists, some are not. I've read all Dr. D's books (have most of them on Kindle) that would apply to me. It appears to me that some food problems are blood type because of lectins, etc. and others are individualistic. I am relatively new to this forum and I have not tried Deflect yet, but intend to. I get the impression that once my gut has healed, some of these problems will lessen, or go away. I hope.

You can contact your DPN store and ask the question.

I hope we can take all three at once - because I did.      Had wonderful results...  
Now I only take Deflect if I got into a meal full of avoids.  I still take the Probiotics about once a week as a maintenance dose, and use ghee for the butyric acid rather than Intrinsa - although there are other goodies in Intrinsa as well to help heal...

Paris,
Hi and welcome!
Like DL and Joe I also have allergies/sensitivities that wreak havoc with my sinuses.
I take the basic pack for blood type A (polyvite,polyflora,phytocal and deflect)
I take these daily..but swallow only one at a time!
I highly recommend their use!

Hello DL. AB Joe and Cajun - thank you for your kind emails- Yes I am new to this forum too- just finished reading the Allergies book and re-reading it....It says somethign I can relate to on page  218- "I appear to be allergic to a food that is BENEFICIAL ETC....." This is what I could not understand initially- how the foods according to my Blood type should be OK for me but in actual fact, cause me much distress. It makes sense that disease can cause the inconsistency, perhaps also stress?? which is not mentioned, but is a disease if you think of it. DL, I have same intolerances as you, I will try the Deflect Lectin product and let you know how I go....AB, what is a DPN store? Cajun, is there a group of products sold as apack? I thought they were individual...thank you all for your suggestions- time to buy the products to get my insides healed and I'll update my results as often as I can...many many thanks for your insight and care- Paris

AB, what is a DPN store?

DPN - D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition.

However, I realize that you are in Australia, so it would be the "Right 4 Your Type" store:  http://www.right4yourtypeau.com/

This is the Basic Pack Cajun spoke about for type B:

     I have Dr. D's book ALLERGIES: FIGHT THEM WITH THE BLOOD TYPE DIET on my Kindle, downloaded from Amazon.com.  Part I is  Blood Type and Allergies - a basic primer. It gives very good explanations about environmental and food allergens and lectins, etc.
Part II talks about individual blood types and plans for improving health.
     One other thing he says is that just because a food is not on an avoids list does not mean you can safely eat it. For example, Dr. D says "blood type A can eat eggs in moderation" "unless they produce allergic reactions", and "type A benefits from moderate consumption of grains" but "if you have allergies, you should limit or avoid wheat and corn products." I'm an A- with allergies to those foods.
     As a test, I drank one of my husband's Ensures this morning for breakfast, just to see. It said gluten free and safe for those with lactose intolerance. Well, 30 minutes afterward, my blood pressure went up to 135/75 and my pulse went from 85 to 96. Thirty minutes later my pressure was 152/80 and my pulse was 105. Five minutes later my pressure was 154/78 and my pulse was 117. Now, fifteen minutes later, it's 184/97 and my pulse is 132. I'll never do that again. Gotta go use my little exercise bike, sitting in a chair, before I have a heart attack or something. I feel really weird in my chest.

With so many ingredients, it is really difficult to tell what you are reacting to with the Ensure.  There is dairy, corn, gums, soy, colors, and loads of chemical vitamins - any of which (separately or in combination) could be causing grief...

It is much more reliable to use single item foods to determine sensitivities...  Of course, then you still have to determine if the reaction is a good one, that you maybe want less of, or a bad one that you want to eliminate completely.

It is two hours later, and after a salad and one ounce of sirloin, I feel much better. Yes, I know I should only test one thing at a time, but breakfast is so hard because of what I can't have, so I thought one Ensure couldn't hurt that much. Well, wrong! It was pretty scary for a while because not only was my blood pressure really high, so was my pulse, and I was feeling spacey and shaky. Will not try that again. Just so hard to find something for breakfast when basically all I should eat is compliant vegetables and fruit (and fish - which I hate), almonds, peanuts, and pumpkin seeds. Who wants veg. for breakfast and then also for the rest of the day? Fruit is good, but it doesn't hold me very long and I have to balance it with a low glycemic food(I'm pre-diabetic). I usually eat either prunes (or some dried or canned fruit) and almonds, or apple with natural peanut butter, or stir fried vegetables, or canned pumpkin with agave and cinnamon for breakfast. I'm getting tired of that. Then a salad for either lunch or dinner and vegetables with a little protein (meat or poultry) for the other meal. Pumpkin seeds or peanuts for snacks. Not real appetizing after a while and makes me not even want to eat. I'm  allergic to gluten/grains, soy, dairy, eggs, sunflower, and probably corn. I don't digest rice or beans well, even though I don't have an allergic reaction to them per say. So ......? Anyway, just expounding. Reading all Dr. D's books over and over.

DL, I wish you could find a fish you like or a way to prepare some that would make you at least try it. My SIL absolutely refused to eat fish until she saw my DH grilling some for us. She is now a fan of at least grilled tilapia.
I eat alot of fruit and veggies but they are not exactly filling, so I do know what you mean. I am fortunate to enjoy beans and rice. Have you searched the health food stores for a compliant bread?  
Hoping you find what you need!

Cajun - Thanks. I've tried every bread out there except amaranth, and get side effects from all grains. I used to make goat milk-rice flour biscuits, pancakes, etc for my girls when they were little. I found a recipe somewhere. I thought they tasted terrible, but the girls didn't know what wheat ones were supposed to taste like, so they ate them. I am allergic to goat milk. I used to put natural peanut butter and corn-free fruit jam on rice cakes for them, also, but I can't digest rice cakes. They sit in my upper stomach and hurt, even with digestive enzymes. Kids at school used to make fun of my girls because they couldn't eat stuff in the lunch room like the other kids. I used to buy a lot of alternative food stuff at GNC when they sold foods, not like today, when it is just vitamins and body-building stuff. Boy, was I creative back then. I've been working on these problems for nearly 44 years. I didn't know about lectins nor Dr. D. until recently. One daughter seems to have outgrown her food allergies. The other daughter, like me, seems to be getting worse.

DL,

My recommendation is to eat what you can tolerate from your Beneficial and Neutral lists.  As you eliminate the lectins from your diet, your intestinal cells will heal and hopefully, some of those sensitivities will reduce.

D.L. I really know how you feel re seeming to react to most things & finding it hard to eat without being limited to a few things... I think maybe once your gut is on the way to being healed, perhaps you will be able to tolerate some things you previously couldn't?!
Interestingly & strangely enough, since I started having chili (the spice not the meal) I am pretty sure my sensitivities are not as bad as they used to be??!!
I normally can't travel in traffic ever, without shutting off the incoming air vents (to avoid fumes from cars) But I was so totally unaware of any problems these last two days that I even forgot to think about shutting the vents...usually as automatic an action as putting on my seatbelt??!!

Could you have smoothies for breakfast? Put a variety of compliant foods into the blender with water and/or ice: fruits, nut butter, maybe also some veggies like spinach for added nutrition. If you have a protein powder you tolerate, you can add that too- otherwise use more nut butter in the smoothie. You could even use compliant bone broth in place of the water for extra protein and minerals.

My mom has seasonal allergies and I think my sister has a touch of them but I've never developed so much as a sniffle or sneeze or anything.

Blood Type is the short way of talking about part of the immunological profile of the blood - essential for transfusions, transplants, etc.  ABO blood type (and secretor) is a major factor of the immune system and therefore directly corresponds with the immune architecture through which an allergy must flow.

From what I remember reading in ER4YT or the BT encyclopedia, O's tend to have the world view, "reactor" while A's are "receptors", so logically O's would suffer more from allergies than A's? I could have that all wrong but, my swami has me as a reactor which is spot on!
My allergist has a theory about modern man not having to "fight off worms, etc." as our ancient ancestors did, thus our systems aren't working like they used to, so now we perceive everything as a threat....
Interestingly, Possum, I also shut all vents when on the road! Have to!
