In Paige's thread, "My Blood Type Story", (congratulations Paige  ) OSuzanna states that the BTD helped her tendonitis. I am glad to hear it, and hope that the same will happen to my daughter and me.

I've been on the BTD for allmost 4 years, mostly compliant, and it has really helped a lot! Adult acne-gone! Hip joint pain-gone! Bunions-gone! However, I have developed "tennis elbow" on my left arm, probably from my 28 lb. dynamo of an English Setter pup hitting the end of the lead chasing imaginary birds! My chiro is working on my neck, and ultra-sounding the elbow, and I rub "China gel" on it when I remember. This has been acutely painful since early October. Any suggestions?

My daughter, in college, has had tendonitis in her left wrist for years. She developed it while playing cello in highschool. It improves, then gets worse, then improves a bit again, but never goes away. She is left handed,and all the notes she now takes in class has agravated it once again. She is somewhat compliant, as the food plan in school is not great for her bloodtype, and she has nowhere to  cook in the dorm. But, she  tries to avoid the big avoids as much as she is able.  She recently bought some Theragesic, and a wrist splint for support, as well as starting to take MSM.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

suggestion: find out secretor status, refine diet, pain may improve -mine did a lot, and it was the tennis elbow type- . See Cesar Millan re: dog & leash issues, that problem should reduce as well! Good luck!

Hmm... my thyroid was checked this summer, and it was within the "normal" limits(for what that is worth) . Could you expand on that thought please Vicki?

Lola, how is arnica used? Topicaly, or orally ?

OSuzanna,  I really should do the secretor test gotta wait, just paid Wi. property taxes, and my pockets are bare ! I will check out the Cesar Millan site, she has improved, but needs some tweaking. She is the most intense little critter! I have always had German Wirehaired Pointers(still do) but this little Setter is just a ball of silky dynamite! Isn't Cesar a cutie?

Thanks Vicki, I checked, my thyroid levels were 1.7, two years ago, and 1.2 last summer.


". . . even within the reference range of around 0.5-4.5 mU/l, a high thyroid stimulating hormone concentration (>2 mU/l) was associated with an increased risk of future hypothyroidism. " That is a quote from the very informative link you provided,(thanks for that!), so I guess I am "ok".  

I was concerned when I had the blood test, because my dad is on meds for hypothyroid, and I understand it can run in families, as well as being so common and under diagnosed!

So... I guess my tendonitis is mainly caused from over use. I play hard, and work hard . Horses, dogs, stacking firewood, cleaning, volleyball, any one of these things could have triggered the tennis elbow, and all of them keep it from healing.

Thanks again for providing that link, I have it bookmarked.

Thyroid is more than one number and complex.  I'm not saying you do have a thyroid problem, but here is more complete info on thyroid from Jean:

Hedonisticallyinclined (whew, that's a mouthful !), yep, my bunions are pain free! The little bones are there still of course, but the inflamation is GONE!!! Ahhh! The bump is a bit bigger than my daughter's "normal" feet, but that may be because I am 46, and she is 18.

I couldn't understand, back in the pre-BTD days, why I would have bunions, I nearly never wear those torture devices called high heels, only well made running, or hiking boots that fit well. Boy did those buggers hurt!!!

Even now, if I eat dairy, KA-BOOM! my bunion spot starts to look red and throb!!!! That is my avoid reminder. I am so glad I could fix my bunions, with no surgery, and no time off for recovery!
