Has anyone been diagnosed with any type irritable or inflammed bowel disease (Crohns disease,etc) and used the BTD to heal?

Please let me know.

I have not been diagnosed with IBS but have had abdominal pain nearly every night for over a year. I had a colonoscopy & endoscopy which showed no significant problems (& realize I need to have tests on the small intestines). The pain is only at night and most often goes away in the early morning or after bowel movement. During the day, usually I feel fine.  I have tried many alternative therapies, supplements, etc - and have decided to follow the BTD as best as possible (for a vegetarian TypeB) - along with some of Dr. Dadamo's supplements for Digestion.

I sure hope to hear some positive responses regarding the BTD from those who have experienced similar dis-ease.

Thanks so much!

Oh how I can relate to this !
- Last summer I had a very long period of pain and was tested from top to toe- nothing showed.
Except a mild gluten intolerence that seems fine at the moment as long as I stick to my B diet and keep my glueten at the low range.

Do you eat anything special at nighttime? - is your day stressed ?

How is your bowelmovements ?
Now vegetarian diet is not the best for B´s... - but I guess better than for O´s !
- I speak as a former vegetarian so I know a bit about B vegetarian diet

Can you share how you normally eat ?
- and I´m sure some will be able to help you.

I have used Ginger tea and Licorice tea with pretty good sucess.

Sometimes my pain come back and I know I have been too stressed  or had a avoid.

Welcome melissa,

With this serious health challenge, I urge you to get your secrtor status tested.  Type B nonnies, (slang for non-secretor), find that their diet is very low on grain, and high in a good quality meat protein.  

I hope other B's will jump in and give you their opinion of trying to heal this illness while at the same time, trying to remain vegetarian.  

Personally, I don't think you will have near the success that you would have if you embraced the Type B diet full on, but that's just my opinion.  I do hope you will continue to share with us your progress on your journey, and let us know if there if there is anything else we can help you with.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

The BTD sure helped me with the IBS and if I eat some avoids I have it come back quickly so for me it it is the cure.
the time of night you are having problems are exactly  when mine would flare up..
I also quit drinking coffee and I don't drink any kind of soft drinks just lots of water during the day
and licorice and green teas. and for the first few months the supplements recommended by NAP for the problems.. now yogurt a few times a week.
good luck and hope you get over this as quickly as I did..

I have had ulcerative colitis for 10 years now,I have been doing the BTD for 8 months now and this is the longest I have gone with out a flare up! I believe the excessive amounts of chicken and corn derived products I was consuming were the culprits. Stress also would send me into a flare up. Please watch out for carageenan too.

I am an O but O and B needs often seem to overlap...so here goes...
I used to live daily with the pain and miseries of IBS, along with a lot of other health issues, but that was the worst. It got worse over the decades. I had colonoscopy and 2 endoscopies, and like you, they said they couldn't find anything wrong!!!!!! When IBS was finally mentioned, it was in a very offhand way. Then gave me an anti-gastritis diet loaded with O-avoids. I ended up living on Levsin and Ativan. Even then, I got too sick to work for over a year, recently.
Early last year I jumped into the BTD lifestyle with both feet, and was work-week-ready in 6 weeks. The gut pain began to subside within 48 hours, and as I became more compliant I began to be able to tell which foods were causing the pains. Now I hardly ever need those meds, usually when I cheat too much. This diet is the scurge of IBS, for me and other blood types.
I am a whole new person, one who is eternally grateful to Dr. D's efforts to educate us!
I believe your vegetarianism and not knowing your secretor status are your 2 biggest hindrances to feeling better. Try the B-non secretor diet & see how that goes, perhaps.
Best of luck, violet.

Hello Melissa,
For most of my life, I thought that intestinal pain was something that everyone had and that it was just the way people felt when their food was being digested.  I never had a pain-free day until the BTD, so I'm more than grateful!!  

I was a vegetarian for a couple of decades, and while I felt great for the first few years from all the detoxing, I gradually began to see my health going downhill.  As soon as I embraced the BTD, I began to eat very small amounts of lamb and fish.  It did not take long for me to notice the drastic improvement in my health on all levels.  Now, I have meat for lunch and fish for dinner, and have nearly completely stopped grains.  

My digestion requires goat and sheep dairy instead of cow milk products, and I only eat cultured dairy foods, such as yogurt and feta cheese.  

The final health change that stabilized my digestion was the realization last year that all gluten products irritate my gut.  Until that time, I had been eating sprouted grain breads and a little spelt bread.  Once I eliminated those, I feel like a new woman.  

I wish you well.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I have been studying the BTD for a few weeks, but seriously began using it just last week and still have so much to learn!

To answer Henreitta's qustions:

Previously, my diet consisted of many of the Avoids: but especially wheat & soy products. I believed variety was the key to good health. I ate a wide variety of mostly organic vegetables (cooked & raw - lots of sweet potatoes & kale/collards), grains & dried cereal, beans (lentils & garbonzas), minimal dairy, fruit - mostly organic apples & bananas, nuts & seeds (especially sesame - Yikes!!). I even made my own sunflower, almond & sesame milks!! Many mornings I make drink with organic apple juice, banana, glutamine powder, ground flax seeds, rice protein powder, and my own concoction of organic green powder. Also I love coffee & black tea & usually had 2-3 servings of these each day.

My days are not especially stressful, exercise routines come in spurts - not consistently.

Bowel movements - usually 1xday, sometimes more, well formed, but sometimes too thin; no diarrhea or constipation.

The good news is I ordered the Secretor test last week!!
Also have started to eat a little fish & track food portions & use as many Super Benes as possible.
Well, thanks for everyone's support.....I appreciate it so much!!

melissa,

I don't know what you'd call it, but I started having unbelievable, chronic diarrhea at age 15 and had it all the way up to when I started the Blood Type Diet at age 36.  Until then, I'd tried several different diets such as Atkins and the alkaline diets, but nothing really stopped it.

It wasn't until I started on the BTD that it stopped.  And, most specifically, I credit Dr. D's recommendation that I eat rare, red meat for stopping it.  

Now, let's just say I own a factory that manufactures very high-quality stools, and I couldn't be prouder.

I was just reading in my All Natural Health book under IBS. I have been wanting to heal my gut for years now. Yes, I do my best to eat right but I am not perfect and I screw up at times which causes uncomfortable stomach issues. One of the supplements suggested for healing the intestines was L-glutamine. When it showed foods that L-glutamine is linked was red meat, dairy, fish, soy, etc. Since I don't eat red meat & dairy(I do eat some fish & soy) maybe I am deficient of this supplement.

Other supplements I take:
Probiotics, fish oil

If any other A's suffer with IBS or stomach problems and take the L-glutamine could you post your results. I feel I may need this supplement added to my diet to heal my gut.
