Is there any reason why someone couldn't take one deflect every hour? Speed up the healing?

healing takes the time it needs.....I don t think popping deflect will shorten it, but I also do not think you could actually overdose when taking more of it.

try doubling the dose, if you like, but not every hour!

Has anyone experienced stomach or intestinal discomfort after taking Deflect?  

My wife is an O, and I've been working to get her to follow the diet for her type.  I bought her some Deflect for type O, as I've benefited from taking Deflect for type B.  However, each time she takes it, either with a meal or on an empty stomach, it makes her sick to her stomach.  

She doesn't have any food allergies, that we know of, so I'm at a loss to explain why the supplement bothers her.  Could she have so much lectin damage in her gut that the supplement is 'cleaning house', for lack of a better term, and that's causing the stomach upset?  

Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have found sometimes with deflect that i feel like a little sick. I might even describe it as a speeding up of the digestive processes...like things start to "move" around. Other times i feel that feeling one gets when one hasn't eaten for a long time...a feeling of weakness from not eating..but i have eaten. On the other hand, i had a meatball at a party the other night, not thinking that there were breadcrumbs in there, and felt sick later that night and took deflect and it went away.

I would just like to point out that Deflect works best when you're fairly compliant
on the diet...It can also Deflect randomly eaten avoids for a person who has been following the diet pretty well, but from your post, I can't tell if your wife is actually following the BTD diet or just taking Deflect.  Remember that there is old lectin damage that will go away when the diet is followed in conjuction with taking Deflect...but if a person is eating too many bad lectins for
their blood type, I can't see how Deflect is going to do all the work by itself.

I find that the longer you're compliant, the better Deflect works on a daily basis.
I used to react negatively to taking it...but greater compliancy with the diet contributed to having less or no negative reactions to Deflect at all.  I take it
between meals....two pills, twice a day.

Chloe, why are you taking it between meals? It says on the bottle to take it with your largest meal. How is it going to be effective that way?

MF....if you go back to my post on February 20th of this thread you'll see the
answer to your question.  Actually, read the entire thread....because I cited links
to protocols prior to that post that suggest taking Deflect between meals.

Thanks much Ladies.

I agree that she has some housecleaning to do.  She's not anywhere near 100% compliant, but she's making small steps in that direction.  The more she sees the positive effect it has on me, the more willing she is to give it a try.  Of course, us Bs have it a bit easier than Os do.  

I also agree that the Deflect gets 'better' the longer you're on the diet and more compliant you are.

I couldn't find the subject of 'white lines'..so i'm going to ask my question here. I have white lines on all my fingers..mostly my thumbs. Since i haven't eaten a great deal of bread or dairy in my life..i'm thinking that they come from something i have done everyday for years...like aspertame in diet cola or the milk fat or vanilla in the hershey bar. Are there any 0's out there who might take a guess from there experience which one might be causing this. Of course i know they are both bad for me. But which is the lesser of two evils?

THis is all very interesting.  I remember reading where that if you are going to have a meal where  you know there are avoids, that you should take 2 an hour before meal and two after.  I tried it once when out eating and it worked beautifully.  I didn't have any after-affects.

But this thread is very confusing in that regard as far as when to take it, how much, etc., etc.  When not taking it for a meal that had avoids we just would take it with our meals in the morning and at night.

I came on to say that we are not taking it now because of finances but my gut problems have certainly increased since not taking it.  I may have to go back to getting it to help my stomach.

Can anyone tell me if the # of Deflect you're supposed to take varies with your size? Skinny minnies can probably get away with taking the minimum but maybe us bigger folk should do 6 a day like Larry?

Deflect can work in several different ways: when taken with foods, it will help mitigate any avoids eaten around that time; when taken on an empty stomach, it will help mitigate lectins eaten in the past. So if you are 18, how many years of eating "off your type" have you experienced? What sorts of "issues" do you have now, and what is your goal for the future (health-wise)?



It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Definitely continue taking it when you eat avoids, although as it's been said before, Deflect will not cancel out the damage of eating wrong.  It will help to lessen the damage.  So do try to eliminate eating any foods that will be continuing to undermine your good efforts.

Well i would say that my gluten/dairy intake is below average (I'm of Chinese descent but live in Australia) but I do indulge... I was vegetarian/pescetarian for almost a year (even then my dairy/gluten intake was lower than average) but have just started trying to adhere to my SWAMI avoids to occasionally make their way in but its usually in condiments.. (ie soy sauce with my sushi...or a piece of carrot)

I'm also wondering how bad it is to eat avoids? I understand that they shouldn't be eaten regularly in the long term ...

My goal is obviously to be as healthy as I can and I'm also just looking to lose 1-2 kg / tone up and get fit. Other than that there aren't any major issues. I'm approx 171cm and 60-61kg if that helps at all.
Thanks in advance for any advice!

Thanks! Would it be okay to take Deflect say, regularly for a month or so while adhering to my SWAMI as best I can and then continuing the SWAMI diet in the long term but only taking Deflect occasionally when consuming avoids?

I guess my main concern with Deflect is that if I take it regularly then stop taking it ... bad things will happen, even if i stick to my SWAMI haha

Deflect works by attracting bad lectins from your digestive tract to its sugars so they can be carried out of your system, not allowing them to attach to blood type sugars within the body.

You won't see any negative behavior from taking Deflect or from stopping it except that any lectins being ingested or cleaned out of fatty tissue will not have these "sacrificial" sugars from the Deflect to attach to...

Since I am still cleaning garbage out of the body and healing, I continue to take some Deflect.

This depends on you.  Are you generally healthy or do you have health problems?  Are you a Secretor or Non-Secretor?  etc...

A generally healthy person will normally handle avoids with greater ease than someone who's body is already stressed by some illness or other damage.  This is why you see some people who can eat "anything" and not suffer any visible effect, while others eat the slightest avoid and have major effects.

Oh wow! I havent gotten my secretor status checked, I've been a bit hesitant because of the price tag but I get the impression that its quite beneficial?

I think I'm probably more the latter as I dont currently have any major health issues, but I'll continue to avoid my avoids as best as possible. Thanks!

That's good to know, thanks for clearing it up for me! So are all the supplements herbal based? I think I'll definitely give Deflect a go!

You can look at the Supplement Facts on the website to see what is in them...  

I think the name "Supplement" indicates that it is a food, rather than pharmaceutical based...
