??) I just received the Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia. In it, there is a listing of  various databases, one of them is called the PHYTObase.  This would be the database of medicinal herbs.  I am looking for information, specifically about Rhodiola.  I am blood type A and I have been taking 200 mg a day in a formula  that has nine other herbs also.   I have found conflicting and confusing information in the BLOGS about some of these,  so I would like to get to something "official and reliable"!?

I would like to know about the following medicinal herbs for blood type A:

Altai Moomiyo, aka "Mumie"
Ashwagandha root
Tonktak Ali "Long Jack"
Eleutherococcus senticosus
Golden Root (Rhodiola rosea)
Holy Basil
Magnolia Vine
Schizandra
American Ginseng
Curcuma xanthorrhiza
Turmeric
Astralagus
Galanga
Ginger


I am looking for the following databases, these are listed in the Encyclopedia that I just received...

PHYTObase - medicinal herbs
SUPPbase - supplements
FRANKENbase - GMO foods

Thank you!

The Supplement base is in the Encyclopedia starting on page 555...  I don't find either of these on the website now...

every herb has its destiny in therapeutic options, but I observed mostly BTD-related recommendations are due to our bloodsugars ...and there are more then one healing system, if I see into the ayurvedic recommendations I observe only 3 different types, in TCM its build up to ying and yang issues....in homeopathic recommendations it's due to psychological facts...entre-autre I observed merely that phytos' are merely corresponding to inner persona's appearing .....similar to homeopathy but much tougher .....
I also observed that almost O's and B's are charmed by the plant called arnica while injured, A's and AB's are merely attracted by camomile while injured.... but we, the humans are also plat related atoms, so far... no wonder  

Btw.. I am wondering and I am very very curieuse  on what my next session as a mycotherapist will be related on....I wasn't able to look and catch it beyond yet.... but I'll keep you informed.... all about lectins and beta glucans....

As far as I'm aware, there is no BTD list of herbs. Some of them are listed in the typebase for foods- look at the "spices" and "beverage" section (herbal teas) for most of these values. Mint and camomile are listed as teas and ginger and turmeric are spices.

Some herbs are included in supplements recommended for your type, or "for all types." It's safe to assume that any herb found as an ingredient in a supplement for your type would be OK to ingest by itself or in a supplement blend from somebody else.

This isn't a complete list, though.  Some herbs are recommended for some blood types but not all.  There's no information about which ones are "avoids" for a certain blood type (it's likely to be harmful) vs which ones are "neutral" (ie, not recommended because they're unlikely to help, but aren't likely to cause problems either.)

I don't agree; neutrals can be worth trying. Dr. D'Adamo's formulations often feature neutrals. Perhaps some people consider these a waste of your money and interest, but I don't write them off.


Let's not forget, too, that the system isn't etched in stone for any individual, either.
Just as today's Gatherer is tomorrow's Explorer, and today's "black dot" is tomorrow's "diamond", today's "Avoid" herb could be tomorrow's "Beneficial". Meanwhile, neutrals can be helpful.

If you take a look at Dr. D'Adamo's books for particular conditions (Cardiovascular Disease, Arthritis, etc.) you'll see that what is "neutral" for one condition might be categorized differently depending on one's condition or health-goal.
HINT: You'll also find, in these books, an "Herb Tea" section for each blood type with that condition -- these sections can be very helpful and guide one to teas that one might consider using to one's health-benefit.

I agree that "neutrals" can help. Say there's a combination formula that contains both "beneficials" and "neutrals."  Then it's fine to take. But if the combo formula contains "beneficials" and "avoids" then it might not be safe to take that supplement. That's why I find it frustrating that there isn't a typebase of healing herbs the way there is for foods.

Also, something "neutral" for your blood type in general may be "beneficial" for an individual in a specific situation. Even "avoid" herbs may be beneficial in specific, short-term situations. So maybe that's why Dr D didn't put together an herbal remedy typebase- to keep people from avoiding herbs that could be helpful when healing herbs are just too specific for a generalized recommendations based on blood type alone.

Say an herb raises stomach acid. It would not be considered "beneficial" for Os in general, as Os usually have plenty of stomach acid. But it could still benefit a specific O who has low stomach acid, even though that herb is more commonly suggested for As.

Dr D is only one man and he can't evaluate every single food and herb on the planet. I'm hoping that some of his students are able to fill some of these gaps in the future.
