I have been on this diet for at least 2 weeks. Two years ago, my herbalist mentioned about strawberries giving O's arthritis. I didn't listen. She did not talk too much about the book, but I was not interested anyway. I starved myself a lot, because i had Candida, and I was so unhealthy. I also was put on olive leaf, which, to me, for the last 2 years have been a most beautiful discovery!! Or so I thought at the time. I did have a UTI when i went to see her, but i had no clue what one was.   Ok, so now you know my background.

I started getting arthritis from strawberries a month ago. (Or less.) That is when I seriously decided to change my diet to the BTD.

I seriously don't think I need to get tested, but will, in time, when I decide to spend the money. I firmly believe I am an O nonnie. Olive leaf and UTI's have gone hand in hand together. Nonnies can have olive oil, but not olives. And the last two days, i have debated about getting more dandelion, because i didn't know if i could work without it.    

Well, I have decided I should quit the olive leaf. I had no trouble today or yesterday. I can always switch to Black Walnut. Or, I can use Golden Seal intermittently.

Plus, I had an Ulcer in 4th grade. And secreters can have soy, but nonnies can't . I have a reaction to soy.

Ever since starting the diet, (two weeks), I have had my major problems go away. I had a numbing, an aching, a hollowness feeling in my butt. All the lectins seemed to go there. Hem away seemed to help, but eventually, it seemed to not, really. I quit the hemaway, and i feel better than i have since January 2005.

I am skinney. I hope to gain weight. I firmly believe I will be healthy on the diet, and I do firmly believe that Dr. D'Adamo has not steered us wrong.

I wonder when the world will wake up to the reality? I know some diabetics have worse trouble than others, and some even die, eventually, or get a limb taken off. I believe if these people all kept this diet, there would be much un needed sickness.

When I heard about the Viagra thing, where 39 people out of 4000 became blind, I thought of the amount of all the nonnies in that group, what was their blood type? And did their blindness have anything to do with their bodies reacting to what their blood type rejected? Was this a case of that?

Hello frdlkstna40, and welcome to the forum!  

You do sound like a nonnie, but you never know .  I had many of the same problems, but in my early 20s.  The diet has really turned my health and life around... in fact, it's made the life I have now possible.  It's been an interesting journey, and I'm still learning and relearning the fact that Dr. D'Adamo really got it right, down to even the smallest details in my case.

I don't know...eventually I think there will be some sort of awakening and revolution when it comes to the Standard American Diet, but it won't be quick or easy.  Hopefully it will happen within the next couple of generations!

Welcome to the board frdlkstna40!!  

But.....o.k., curiousity gets the better of me.  What does your username mean?  "fred likes tina 40"?  fred likes tuna?  Help me out here!  

Melissa, did you notice that your "Standard American Diet" is what it really is?  S.A.D. Well, at least there's truth in the advertising, right?

WELCOME!  

If you suspect that you are a non-secretor, it is well worth the $$$ (and I say that as a po' person *lol*) to get the test and find out.  Making the non-secretor refinements to my diet (particularly cutting out grains, or virtually cutting them out, anyway) has really kicked up my diet and helped me with the things I needed help with, especially weight loss.

As far as when the world will wake up to reality, sometimes it takes losing an aspect of your health to truly appreciate that aspect.  Like when you got arthritis, that is when it really hit you what your herbalist had told you a while back.  "When the pupil is ready, the teacher will come."  It is a hard lesson to realize that we can't MAKE other people realize things, but the good news is, we can lead by example and we can share our own experience, knowledge and opinions with those are are open to listening.

Welcome and I'm glad you have experienced such an improvement in your health.  Stick with it, it only gets better and better!

I hope I do this right...I am new to forums....

frdlkstna40 means fred (my cat) (now deceased (had him 19 years))) likes tuna....you hit it right on the noggin!!!!   And the 40 means that I was 40 when I made up the email address....(or would have liked to be 40!!!) I might have been 40, though, seriously. But I am 46 now, soon to be another year older, yet!!!

Thanks to you all for your support. Without all this website, it would be a lot harder to know how to follow the diet.

I will get tested, but I know this:

Soy bothers me. I never realised it before, and I have been using soy milkshakes for at least two years.

Olive leaf bothers me. I had two pills today for the first time since Saturday, because I was at work and didn't realise I had colloidal silver in my purse. I have an infection of some sort, I think, possibly in my lung. It came on real sudden, like right below my shoulder blade. I think it diminishes with the antibiotic type herb in me. I have never had pneumonia, and I am not going to start now.

Wheat gives me migranes, I do think. When I was totally off wheat before, my migraines seemed to be almost nill for at least 3 months. Right before I started this diet, I had one that wouldn't seem to go away, so they were getting worse.

I am following the nonnie diet, and I will get tested. I promise. That is when I can finally convince my herbalist that I am a nonnie.

I really like this sight.

Oh, and I was really tired today, and all day long at work, it seemed, (well, the last two hours) I kept saying to myself (logically, normally not thinking logically when I get this way) "you are just tired. You're really not mad at anyone. You are just tired. Don''t break down.") and you know what??? I survived the day without shedding one tear, even though I was almost on the verge at one moment in time!!!!  And it is all due to the BTD!!!!!

COooool!    What do I win for a prize?  

Sorry to hear about the loss of Fred.  I'm sure he was a character.  Really, how can a cat named Fred NOT be a character?   I can only hope that all four of mine live so long.  Right now, they're at 16, 16, 14, and 4.

Age is irrevelant.  It's how you FEEL that is most important.  And like many of us here, you will feel YEARS younger once you've been on the BTD for awhile.  I think you meant to say 46 going on 29, right?  Just nod your head..........yep, just like that.  You did good.  

Try almond milk for your milkshakes instead.  Actually, I recently found a chocolate almond milk put out by Blue Diamond co-op called Almond Breeze.  Just as good, if not better than real chocolate milk.

Welcome aboard. As you can see there are so many really nice and smart (just look at how fast MissileCop guessed the meaning of you nickname - he's definately one of the smart ones - not to say he isn't nice - I mean - argh... I give up!   ) people here.

Like you I haven't found out my secretor status yet. I mailed in an order for two test sets for hubby and me a couple of weeks ago including a (I think) big check, and letter and check came back a few days later. Turned out the company had moved, hm!   Ah well - I'll have it done another time then. Pretty sure I'm a secretor, though...

Hi, Missle Cop!!

Thank you for the almond milk info!!! I will try it. The rice protein is grainy, but worth it, of course. I bought MLO brand.

I got Fred while in Rota Spain, while I was in the Navy. I had no idea I would have him that long. From there, we went to Norfolk, then to Spain again, then Maine, then to New Jersey, then to Crete Greece. That cat traveled with me, but he hated riding in cars on trips. One time I was up in Newark, New York visiting a friend, and we were getting in the car. I remember my friend (a 80 year old woman) in the passenger seat, and for some reason Freddy had to be in the car. I put Fred in my side, and he immediately jumped out her side, because her door was open. We were only there for a weekend, so all I do remember is that Fred hated that car! He slept under the seat. Big trucks bothered him.

I bought 5 HTP, and I had hardly 6 hours sleep last night, and I am still up!!! It is 942pm est. Dr D. sure knows what is good for us!!!

Tonight, I cut up red pepper, celery, kohlrabi, carrots, with olive oil and stir fried it with salt (not much) . I also got two 90% round ground patties I put together with the above (minus kohlrabi) but also with onion.

Did I feast out tonight!!! Plus, a small juice glass of pomegranite juice that you buy in the "healthy juice" section.

I never ate red pepper. I thought it was semi-nasty.

I hope you find your secreter status. But if soy does not bother you, if olives don't bother you, and among others, too, then most likey you probably are a secreter. I think it would be much cheaper to buy one of the avoids that non secreters can't have, and have fun eating it at the same time. Strawberries, also, are a no no for me. I really want to wait til the new year to get the test. But I think the BTD saved a lot of people's lives!!!! I waited until the age of 46 to throw my hands up in the air, and give in. And I did not cook .  I cook now. I think I can be creative with the diet, also.

You know it is funny how every one talks about what bothers them and if they are a secretor or not.... I was tested as a non, and was offended!!! I don't want to be more of a zero than I am! hahaha. Anyway, stuff that is on the No No list for me, doesn't bother me at all.

I rarely have stomach problems with foods I eat.

Oh, and as a nurse, it is fun to steer my patients in the direction of the BTD! Especially when they are in for something to do with bowel problems and stomach problems.!!!

This is definitely the "diet" for me!

Just double checking w/ everyone.....I got an email from a nice lady suggesting almond milk for my O nonnie of the house but last time I checked the Blood Type Encyclodpedia & The Type4 here online, they both gave a big AVOID for O nonnies.  Since my stubborn O does not like rice milk but will flavor his coffee, tea, etc with one or the other, does anyone know what kind of Avoid they are for O non's?  Gastric imbalance, increasing disease susceptibility, contains lectin or agglutinin?  O nonnies - what has your personal experience been with the soy vs almond vs rice milk.  He says the rice milk is not "thick" enough.  Any ideas on how to "thicken" it?

You might try egg white powder to thicken up rice milk.

Thanks, Lola!!!  Yep, the Blue Diamond one I found at our local Pathmark has the dredeed carrageenan.  Still better than giving the poor boy soy in the morning.  My Trader Joe's organic soy has carrageenan in it too.  Eventually will find one's without it but for now it's just too much work to go to 4 different grocery stores.....we already go to 3 just to get everything we need!
