Aspirin will NOT give you diarrhea.it can give you bleeding ulcers.  

Magnesium will send you to the bathroom, and with that it is protecting you from 'to much'.

IF it has a label.. it is not for you!  You are O!.. fresh and clean..

Quoted Text
" If you want to produce healthier offspring, then follow the Genotype Diet.

If you're only concerned about your well-being and/or trying to fight off a particular disease, then follow the Blood Type Diet.


Yes I still think so.. the Geno link is important to you as  mom, and dad as dad to be for all that can be changed to benefit the child....   I think If you listen then conceiving may be possible.. Relax , no need to stress... over nothing not important in 5 years..

IF you had arthritis, or diabetes, there are BTD books for that!.. also heart and cancer.. They contain the Super Beneficial break down..Beneficial and two neutrals..and avoids..

Eat Right has Highly Beneficials.. In swami they are diamond foods..

Trying 'other' diets along with this one, might work IF you are young and HEALTHY, but most have experienced ill effects**.. which is not to say that you should adhere 100 % the norm is more closer to 80/90/95%.

** we found that after a while, you can feel differences of wellness never felt before.. and then even small diversion 'bother' you..

At he end: re-read Ruthygirl.. she is on target!   all the best as you go on from here.. Yes I own all the books, and love all even the old ones.. Its just that Swami as a shopping list is on computer and is Geno specific.. --- I am Gatherers have short lower legs, llok round and struggle with food, and prone to diabetes ll.  Nonnies struggle with food sensitivities..

Hey the REAL fun is in learning!! you are on your way..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

just a quick answer for the link above..

20 years between the first and last book might have something to do with all that was written.. The Geno is sort of the newest one..

IF you suffer: The arthritis book and the cancer or diabetes and heart books are very specific..

Foods changed over 20 years / Knowledge and concerns did also..

The biggest and best:  Is the individuality celebrated in these books.. TRY it you might like it..

As for a responses on any pertinent subject - try this community- you will get more then you asked for.  

Learn, test and make sense to you! is all that matters to us.. The rest is just same old/ same old... one size fits all- not for me!

This is a free will diet, no one makes you do anything, nor charges anything.  Learning happens for the price of the books or for the on-line program called Swami.. but it does require ability to discern the changes needed to make when moving your goal posts.. My goal: improved health and wellness, with foods.

Today I am making this entry, guessing that I might be right....

I always had low oxygen, I can still have it some time, but I also have improved oxygen levels, that is new.  I think it is from taking the Milk of magnesium.  I am guessing that maybe my heart/ muscles needed it as well as my lungs.  I finished a whole bottle, the taste is horrid, but if need be doable.  

I also feel that it might help with the INTESTINAL muscles.  I seem to have much less of a need to pee every time I get up, I can actually wait a little.  Obviously my elimination is much more normal.. a nice change.. no FLATULENCE.

In my diet I do not get a lot of magnesium, so no wonder I responded to taking some extra for a while.. Instead of daily a big swig, I may now take it when I get the headache, or once a week.

jtw,

Back to the basic issues that you have raised. Generally, O's tend to have thinner blood but some among them (called non-secretors, which cannot be tested in many parts of the developing world) tend to have thicker blood than their other fellow beings. I have never come across an article that links magnesium with blood thinning properties. Eat Right for Your Type was published in 1996 and most of its premises are still valid. With the publication of Live Right for Your Type in 2006, the importance of (secretor status: whether you are a secretor or non-secretor) was firmly established and the diets recommended are fine-tuned based on your secretor status. With the publication of Genotype Diet in ...., a diet based on your  genetic make up (where blood group could be one factor only) was suggeted. And finally, a computerized tailormade diet system has been developed (called Swami Express which is not a book as such) which recommends food list that is tailored to your specific conditions (health, medical history and other genetic mark ups): this recommendation will be different Genotype Diet and Blood Type Diet and somewhere in between.

The best way to start according to me is to first start from blood type diet, and see how things work as far as your body and mind is concerned. The next step could be to check your "secretor status" when you are in the "developed world" (US, Europe, Aus) and further fine tune the diet if necessary. And then instead of going into Genotype Diet, you could buy Swami Express and print a tailored made diet and life styles recipes for your self.

Bye the way, I have just seen that Cocoa (chocolate) contains high amount of Mg too!

Just wanted to write a quick update-

I was reminded this week how critical Mg is for my functioning.  Started slacking on my dosages, then began experimenting with (unknown at the time) another MAO inhibitor (apparently didn't learn my lesson before).  Got really screwed up... I mean, just felt awful.  No energy, irritated, pessimistic, poor digestion, etc.  Upped my Magnesium and within a couple hours felt like a completely different person.  All the vitality and life came right back.  

I was doing some reading, and there was a recent study showing some people are genetically chronically deficient in Mg.  Wondering if I fall into this category, because I just cannot absorb it.  And the rest of my brothers are prone to the same symptoms, though they won't acknowledge it.

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

Wondering if I fall into this category, because I just cannot absorb it.

Looking at the list of foods O's eat, I just don't see how we can get enough.

I also think that it is a big reason for O's feeling the way we do.  There have been many discussions about digestion or eliminations for O's -  in the end it looks as if maybe the Magnesium might be the big issue.  The lists of foods are not convenient.  They list nuts by 100 grams, and spinach the same, one hardly eats either in those measurements, and the listings in %'iges is even more useless. No wonder there is little awareness of just how much this mineral impacts our life on this diet.. Certainly no Doctor ever mentioned it!

I think we could absorb it if we focused on eating all the foods with Magnesium, by really focusing on it.  For me right now finding some easy way to get it into me is a goal.  I really seem to feel a lot better with it. Magnesium ought to be a big issue for O dieters. I don't see how any can get enough in food, if we don't wish to gain weight every which way.  How much spinach or some other foods with Magnesium do you eat? either every day or at one sitting? uncooked or blanched?

As far as I know....

Blood clots form as a way of repairing damage to the body, this damage can occur for reasons including trauma, inflammation, plaque buildup, inactivity etc. The processes of blood clot formation relies on calcium and vitamin k to activate them.
When you take magnesium, it helps to reduce blood clotting by indirect means - it doesn't "dissolve" blood clots, but rather helps promote an environment in the body where blood clots aren't being made left right and centre.

- Magnesium helps to reduce systemic inflammation, thus it helps to reduce clots caused by inflammation of the tissues/blood vessels
- Magnesium helps to improve the integrity of the inner wall of the blood vessels, which helps to reduce clots caused by damage to the blood vessels/bleeding/bruising
- Magnesium is required to 'turn off' calcium in the process of muscle contraction, calcium contracts muscle, magnesium relaxes it. If muscles are damaged from spasm or overwork - inflammation from this could lead to blood clots.
- Magnesium is a cofactor for calcium absorption into the bones, it helps improve bone density by allowing calcium to be made into bone. (Excess calcium can lead to blood clots.)
- When magnesium isn't being used for "fire fighting" any abnormal calcium:magnesium ratio, it is used for cellular energy production and many other functions that make us feel healthy in general.

If you're concerned about your blood being too thin (which it doesn't sound like you are), you could reduce your risk of bleeding by focusing on boosting collagen levels by eating bone stocks etc to increase the strength and integrity of the blood vessels. Most good magnesium supplements contain a small amount of calcium anyway, which will assist in maintaining a good ratio.

Otherwise, I'd keep taking the magnesium and feeling better because of it

Sorry again for my slow reply, you guys are great.

First Ruthie, thank you so much for that message, that is very very helpful!

Why are corn and wheat the two most harmful foods to us?  Why are these two more important to cut out than some of the other things?

I don't like to eat white rice, white rice contributes to diabetes as it is is all sugar.  I eat brown rice when I can, but that's about it.  

I figured my wife's diet would be more important, though I need to make changes also. But getting her to cut out the seafood is going to be tough, she is B.  And she loves shrimp and many other things that she shouldn't have.  

As for magnesium, it seems I am finally starting to understand this from reading yours and other's posts.  It seems that the Magnesium works in different ways and should be beneficial for the blood and prevent other issues.

Indeed I did not see anything prohibiting magnesium suppliments in the books either, but it is an important question to me as I have been taking it for many years and really do not want to stop.

Goldie: Thanks for the feedback
Thanks for explaining the differences with Magnesium and Aspirin.  

If it has a lable? What does that mean?

I don't really have any particular diseases. I suffer from a few things but they are not serious, but I would like to improve them.  1. sleep quality. 2. stools. 3. bring down the prostate size so the urine flows naturally. 4. lower back issues.  5. sleep better.  

I went back to the website, I didn't see your response yet, I guess you didn't go back to rewrite all of what you lost right?  I would still like an answer to that guys question because it is really confusing.

Kumar, thank you for your response.   As for my secreter status, it is going to be difficult. Amazon won't ship them to me where I am, and I am not sure the labs can do it here or not.  I have asked a friend to try to find out for me who is in the biological field.   I may have to wait until the next time I visit the US to get this done.

Eric, Interesting.    I am not sure what sort of magnesium you take, but citrate seems to work well for absorption.  

weekender, I don't know how thin my blood is, what I worry about is waking my head on something and getting a hemmoreage because my blood is too thin, won't clot and I end up in a coma.  This is what I worry about the most. I have a knack for hitting myself on just about everything. The last thing I want is something like this to happen.

You really can't "make" your wife change her diet. All you can do is educate her and encourage her to make changes. You can also offer practical support (figuring out meal plans, going  food shopping, preparing food, etc.) But if she's not willing to do the work herself, she'll continue to eat whatever she wants away from home or when you're not there.

I'd suggest getting "Eat Right 4 Your Baby" as that's the book with the targeted fertility advice, along with information on diet during pregnancy and lactation and introducing solids to the baby. If she's willing to read that book, she's more likely to want to make the dietary changes.

Hi Ruthie, yep I know I can't.  It is up to her, I know. I can only recommend and try to show her by doing it myself so she can see the changes. In the end it is up to her.  I know.

I was going to buy this book you mention with the genotype book whenever I decide to order.  We'll see how it goes I guess.

If it has a label? What does that mean?... ANY packaged food is basically avoid..all items have something we should not eat.. fresh and raw meat is best.


I don't really have any particular diseases. I suffer from a few things but they are not serious, but I would like to improve them.  1. sleep quality.   Did you follow some of the threads on sleep there where a few and one big one with many suggestions..

2. stools.could you stop the magnesium for a short while and see if you really need it?

3. bring down the prostate size so the urine flows naturally. THIS I would deem important as you are way to young.. what are you doing for it?  could that be from magnesium as well?  like to much fluid retained for stool, instead of for urine?  

4. lower back issues. unless you can figure out why you have it, the kidneys might be in need of fluids or at least in adjustment of fluid absorption..

5. sleep better.    HOW, sleep longer, fewer interruptions, fewer dreams? Can you sleep better when you take a pain killer for your back?

Not as much as you might think.. I can respond here, and if need be paste it there also, but that guy did not do his homework, so I have less respect or need to defend or to make my point, he will not hear.....

here are some points I remember:  

Some books are getting old.. they where written over a decade ago..  Changes in knowledge has occurred since then so adjustments are obvious..

Dr D is willing to make list adjustments, with one proviso, he is eons ahead of what those old books contained, and the reader must come along with on open mind.

For novices the books information is still very pertinent, as they serves as a basis of simple understanding of relative complicated NEW ways of looking at food issues.

Food over the last 20 years has dramatically changed.. see blue berries: they used to be small little things full of flavor.. NOW they are the size of strawberries (as they used to be) and have way less taste.  Monsanto had a hand in them.. so the health benefits may have changed as well.  Yes they are still blue, but are they also full of some chemical growth stimulator?   Look at strawberries, they are the size of small apples now a day.. sprayed all over many times to keep them in perfect condition for year round marketing.. what other diet takes such things into considerations?  Here Swami might do just that as info becomes available..

as for Dr D not answering questions individually?  preposterous, he would have no time at all to do anything but answer questions we here are willing to answer over and over for every newbie year after year.. with much patience.  Even impertinent questions are answered.. over and over..

Dr D and his various interests (on our health behalf) is many steps ahead of stuff we can never expect to learn.. He has put together a 800 page textbook for 200.- it is for sale.. as are so many other books he has written for the specifics like the heart, diabetes and cancer, babies, and aging.. as well as his lexicon, for health concerns and corresponding supplements.

All this info is available here on this very page, all any person needs to do is be willing to go and look at each page.read and comprehend or ask specific questions..  there is enormous information and all written in easy to read language.

The most important of it is maybe the ability to search and trace information in

http://n-equals-one.com/blogs/2011/12/18/quodlibet/

I would dare this other person to even find this entry.. but like I said, he is just mouthing off in a forum for self aggrandizement.. let him come here.. and then we will match the real from bravado..

did I forget any points?  sorry if I did.  You can feel free to copy paste my answers above, I don't do social media-- HERE is my place to communicate. I learn some new thing every day..  

all the best..

as for you, you might if so inclined, let us know what all you take, for your own health. There might be things to tweak..

I've been really bad about replying haven't I? Sorry about that.

Well of course fresh is better, but... that is not always possible. but I will try and as with any diet fresh and raw is better, that is pretty much clear from just about every book I have read.

You asked about what I am doing for the prostate issues, actually not much.  I have been taking on and off a suppliment called Prostate 5X from New Chapter.  The other stuff I have tried just doesn't work.  This one I haven't been on long enough to see any useful effects.  The magneisum is not part of this problem, it occurs whether I take it or not.   My stool might be retaining some, but when I need to urinate I need to badly sometimes.  I have plenty of urine, just that it doesn't flow as it should at the speed it should, the prostate is nearly 1cm bigger than it should be and this is the reason.  I do not want to take drugs to fix the problem, so...  

Lower back issues are from a disk herniation that occured years ago.  I do Chrio everyweek to try to prevent any further damage.  Sorry I should have elaborated more on this the first time.

Sleep issues..  I need to go to bed earlier is the major issue, but I just can't force myself to sleep, ADD issue perhaps..  Dreams? What are those?  I seldom remember them anymore.  Interuptions well, that just depends, recently fewer, and I am sleeping more through the night, but sometimes urine wakes me up too, prostate issue, and probably lower back issues create this problem.  I don't need to take pain pills for the back, basically it doesn't hurt unless I do something stupid, once a year or so I will do something stupid and make it inflammed where I need to take pain pills, but basically I am pharamcy free.

What I take? I take Vit. C from GNC, and B complex from GNC. I also take a multi vitmain from Alive for Men.  It doesn't have any iron in it and that is the reason I am taking it. E I am not sure I will have to check.

Is Vitamin E soap ok for O's?  I thought I saw somewhere we need to avoid it.. But is it ok externally? I know some of it will absorb so that is why I am asking.

Why is bread deemd bad for O types?

So basically these are the reaons why I need to buy the online software to stay afloat of all thse changes right?

What is the name of the textbook that is $200?

Not really understanding the website you gave me..  n-equals -one.... what is that ?

Also it seems I cannot get the secretor test here, they won't ship this one or the wander gatherer thing here, and two of the other distributors I contacted, 1 doesn't sell them and the other never replies.. so...  I don't know what to do to get these...  

Anyway sorry again for the delay in reply.

The idea that all O's have thinner blood is a broad generalization.  I happen to have an SNP on one of my two clotting factors, Factor 2 which predisposes me to venous thrombosis.

If you are curious you can always get your genetic profile done like I did.  A lot of the generalizations for type O's in the BTD/GTD ended up not applying in my case.

Topical vitamin E is fine, especially if you're talking about soap, and not a concentrated oil. Yes, some gets absorbed, but not enough to cause problems. We don't need to completely avoid vitamin E; it's present in some foods that are OK for Os, such as almonds. Vitamin E supplements give a way higher dose than what your skin will absorb from soap or what you'd get from diet.

You may benefit from adding a B-12 supplement to your routine; that's what Dr D recommends for normalizing sleep patterns. It's important to get the methyl form of B 12, as the other forms are hard to absorb. This would be in addition to the B complex, not instead of.

Patty what kind of genetic profile did you have done?  And how much did it cost you?  I doubt I can get something like that here, but I would like to try to see if it is possible.

Thanks Ruthiegirl for verifying that, indeed it is soap that I was inquiring about because I have recently started using African Black Soap and I really like it.    I will look into B12.  I don't take vitamins everyday, I feel it is overkill to take so many.  so I take them randomly throughly the week.

I think Patty used 23 & Me.

Testing is $299

Shipping varies by country

Asian countries would probably be close to $100. Shipping includes return shipping to lab.

As usual, C Sharp is correct!  I did use http://www.23andme.com  It is great as I reference it all the time.  One of the things that is interesting to me is that I have a rare blood antigen that was discovered in my family in the 1950's before I was born.  When I look at my genes regarding to blood issue, I have quite a few, such as the one I referenced in my earlier post.  I am also a carrier for a blood condition.  I don't think the rare blood antigen is serving me all that well

How does the 23 and me compare to the following?

It appears these only test your family history, and not health, where as 23 and me does everything?  I don't think it would cost 100 bucks to send that overseas, if they ship it overseas that is, I haven't checked.

Not quite sure if you were being sarcasitc or...  I don't quite understand your post...  Or do you mean that National Geographic is enough for you to understand your ancestory, meaning you don't really care too much about that?  Did I get it?  lol
