I have auto immune conditions for a long time now.
Following the Blood type diet and eliminating wheat and most grains except for rice has given me some improvements with these conditions.
I would love to hear from others and their success. While mine has been small I know I am on the right track, finally.
My sjogren's syndrome(SS) dryness has been improved as I rarely suffer from dry eyes,and dry burning mouth any more - these were a daily classic feature of SS. I am ever hopeful of more improvements especially for the muscle pain and nerve pain.  Good Luck every one and keep on trying.

Hello Leslee, nice to meet you

Following the BTD has definitely made a huge difference for me. My fibromyalgia symptoms are much reduced and I feel better in general, lots more energy and endurance. When I give in to temptation and eat wheat it REALLY does me in! Glad to hear you've found a big difference for you too Leslee, that's excellent!

Welcome to the board, I look forward to your posts

Leslee,
have you decided which system you want to follow?
there s a test you can take to help you determine which will be more targeted for you!

Hi Leslee, and good to meet you!

I deal with dry eyes (not dry mouth), and chronic fatigue.  An extremely high level of compliance on the diet is necessary for me to be creative and healthy.  

I have actually switched over to the genotype diet, which seems to make me feel much better (after a few weeks of transitioning).



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.

Hi Leslee, I also have Sjogrens. I take medicine from the doctor for it, but I don't think I would be anywhere as good as I am with this way of eating.  I ate the O nonnie way for years, but now I am eating for a gatherer.  I can really tell a difference when I get off track.  Please stay with us!

I just notice that you are an O nonnie and a Gatherer just like me!!! Cool.


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle

It seems hard to change to gatherer, I need time to work it out - maybe after Easter.  
lola - I did the test when it 1st came out  and it said only a minimal difference between the two. I tried again and the lines are equal. I have the book as I'm interested in everything of Dr D's and will read it again soon. I need a daily menu that works for me not just lists of foods.  it also seems to have mainly lamb as a meat and not many veges with substance.
Meribelle, Hi sister o nonnie gatherer, what changes have you noticed when switching to gatherer diet - I would love to hear. Was it hard to change?

Leslee:  I came out even (b/t BTD and GTD) when I did the test the first time.  I re-did the test, switching from Yes to No on "I want to lose weight" and it swung over to BTD.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I have MS and have had it for nine years now. I was diagnosed at a young age and for so long I didn't know how to help myself. This last year could easily have been the hardest yet. I felt as though I was out of options as far as medications etc. I'm not responsive to many anymore. Thank goodness I heard about this diet.

Right off the bat I started seeing changes, and I had only eliminated red flag foods from my diet. Nearly everyday I saw improvements! I bought eat right and have been following the diet more fully. It has only been a month and I can't remember the last time I felt so good. I have more energy and no more dark circles under my eyes. All of my MS symptoms have improved since I started the diet. It is amazing! I'm impressed at how easy it has been for me to adapt to.
