Hello, I'm really trying to be as compliant as possible with my diet.  However, I'm currently taking supplements that my homeopathic doctor has me on to balance my vitamins and mineral ratios.  Guar Gum is one of the ingredients which is an avoid for me.  Is this something that can slow my progress down?  Or is an avoid like this minor.  Obviously, it's an inactive ingredient.

Regards,
Marion

Which supplements are you taking? Usually you can find other brands that are more compliant - or buy the herbs/vitamins in bulk and make your own blend.

Here are some reasons to avoid Guar Gum.

  • You are a non-secretor and non-secretors need to be fairly strict with the BTD for good health.

  • It is a Tier 1 avoid for secretors (Tiers don't apply to non-secretors).
    TYPE O:Secretor:
    AVOID: Flocculates serum or precipitates serum proteins.

    Non Secretor:
    AVOID: Flocculates serum or precipitates serum proteins.

  • Guar Gum is not an inactive ingredient from a BTD standpoint.

Flocculates serum or precipitates serum proteins.


I will just add (for those who may not know) what this means, because a long time ago I wondered and looked it up in my medical dictionary.

Flocculates means it's structure looks somewhat like cotton candy.  All clumped together like big fluff balls.  Serum is the clear liquid that can be separated from clotted blood.

Hope this helps.



Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Quoted from Dr. D
Flocculation is the process by which serum antibodies come out of solution and precipitate; similiar to when making 'rock candy,' the sugar comes out of solution and latches on to the string.

Flocculation is a clear sign of an antibody reaction. Most of the flocculation I report results from avoids reacting with anti-blood type antibodies.

Most flocculation reactions are 'anomalous', in that they require the presence of a primary high-affinity, non-precipitating antibody (which may or may not be blood type specific; more usually bacterial-induced) that must be saturated with the food antigen before the remaining 'conventional' (blood type specific) antibodies bind and precipitate the additional antigen.

'Flocculate' is an old Greek word, meaning to produce white cloud-like tuffs in solution.

Often these antibody/antigen complexes (or 'Immune Complexes') activate other latent parts of the immune system, and which can result in inflammation and auto-immune disease. This is often done by stimulating the body's complement system.

It makes the IgM antibodies found in your blood type clump up and come out of solution (precipitate)
