Hello, I read the Blood Type Encyclopedia Book and if anybody can help me understand something, I would greatly appreciate it!  If an herb is most helpful for an ailment, for example, Oregano for a cough that won't go away, are we better off taking the supplement that is best for the ailment, or better off finding an herb on the blood type supplement chart for that ailment, even if it may not be as good?  Also, with regards to that chart in the book, if an herb is listed and your type is not there, does that mean it is not good at all or just that it is better for the type or types listed?

What I am trying to figure out specifically, is for me, an A Blood type, is Oregano good anyway (A's were not listed, I think it was B's)?  It seemed to be best for a cough that would not go away otherwise, and I think I may need to take it (or something) for candida.  Also, a ND recommened Kelp but A's are not listed for Kelp either.

Any info greatly appreciated!  I am new to this board.  Thanks!

Welcome ShariAplus.

Some herbs are more beneficial for a specific blood type.  You can use the back of the ER4YT Encyclopedia to peruse the function and purpose of specific herbs for assisting with illnesses and other health conditions.

and the general search button on the left margin in the homepage.
http://www.dadamo.com/search.htm

Welcome

he Encyclopedia protocols were written to provide exceptionally safe supplementation recommendations, since the book was written for the general population.

Just because a herb is not listed for a blood type does not mean it isn't OK for that blood type. It just means that it wasn't in one of the protocols for that blood type.

It is your choice if you want to use something other then what is recommended.

Kelp is in typebase and is OK for all blood types as a food.

Oregano, Origan {Origanum vulgare - Lamiaceae}

Oregano is mentioned in the Health Protocols: #30 Yeast/Fungus Resistance for B-Types.

Gumweed {Grindelia sp. - Asteraceae} is another one...

It really depends on what you are trying to achieve though...Do you need an Expectorant, Decongestant, or any lung/throat pain from coughing too much, etc.

Hello,

Thank you all for the links and information.  I have a feeling I will be using them a lot!  I guess what I am trying to better understand at this point, is if it is always better to use an herb that is listed for my type, or in some cases, is the herb that is best for the issue, best regardless?  

The one I am most curious about now (since Kelp was answered, thanks!), is Oregano.  Oregano  seems to work well for coughs for me (I think it was a fungus caused cough) but as mentioned above, Oregano is listed as a B protocol.  I also think I have a Candida thing I have to figure out and Oregano is listed for that too.

How do you guys all deal with knowing about blood type foods and supplements and living with Dr's, friends and even holistic Dr's that do not think this way?????    

Thank you!

Just because oregano is not listed in the specific protocol doesn't mean it is not good for you,  Oregano is a great anti-bacterial/anti microbial.  The protocols are general recommendations for specific issues.  If you find oregano to be helpful for you than by all means use oregano.  The protocols are there as a helpful guide not an end all be all
