I would def have that checked out. I had a spot on my chest that did that.........after 4 derms, finally one biopsied it. It was cancer.........the least worrisome kind tho. So don't mess around too long.  
I was originally going to say (before I got the opens and bleeds part) that you might consider how long you have been eating for the wrong b/t............it's bound to cause some issues.    Just glad you got that all straightened out. Now when you get your secretor results, you'll be set.
And why do you automatically suppose these 2 things are cancerous? does it run in your family? Just wondering out loud.

OK...  That doesn't really help narrow it down for me.  Get it checked out, then you will know for sure.

Welcome back Ron,

     I can tell by the energy in your posts you are feeling better. I am happy for you that you are discovering your best path and are listening to your body.

     I am a bit wary of supplements, myself. Having had negative things happen from taking Vitamin E and then later from small amounts of fish oils, I take supplements with great caution, even though people keep urging me to take them.

     You know best for yourself!!

     Thanks for the lesson. When someone is struggling there is always a reason.

So Ribbit, how do you fare on a lot of cheese?


Sorry, y'all, this is from last page, but I've been out of town since last Wed. a.m. and just got back late last night.

I seem to do okay with cheese now that I'm the Warrior diet.  On the BTD I couldn't eat cheese or wheat.  I used to be especially intolerant of dairy.  Any tiny bit would send me to the bathroom the next day with stomach pain so terrible that I would literally have to breathe heavy as if I were in labor to deal with the pain. Also, I'd get very dizzy for about 12 hours. It would blow through and I'd be fine.  Dizziiness suddenly gone, all cramping gone.  Now I have no trouble at all.  My stomach is happier than it's ever been.

But might the Teacher diet be better?  I will see.  I'll go shopping tomorrow and buy Teacher foods and see what happens this next week.

I've had this pain just behind my lower right rib, just at the very top of the right side of my abdomen.


Ron,

Is this pain at the point of the ribcage where it stops going down from the sternum and flattens out to go around the side?

If so, this is probably the gall bladder trigger point.  If so, following the liver protocol will reduce the pain, and help the liver in the process.  I have also found that in addition to the liver protocol, red beets, if OK for your type, are really helpful for the gall bladder.

Good luck with that..Usually we would really love our foods in our right promgram so how do you feel about the Warrior foods as compared to the Teacher foods by looking at the plans? Like with me, most of my totally favorite foods..are in Warrior. I also tend to get dark circles from too much dairy. So let us know ok?

Ron, the pain could also be from some sort of stomach irritation. I used to get a pain in that exact spot, and it was caused from a hiatal hernia/acid reflux, strangely enough. You may just have a Candida colony in your stomach that has done a job on the stomach lining. One way you could check either of these out is eat a couple of Tums and see if the pain stops. Are you getting plenty of bioflavonoids with your C?

Spring,

When I take the Betaine HCL after eating, I notice that my abdominal discomfort all but disappears, and I usually start venting methane.

Could it be the pylori bacteria causing an ulcer? My mother had it and she got a sharp burning pain on the side of her stomach.

Ron, that is great and indicates that it is probably something that will be easy to "fix." Have you tried bromelain? I could never take it for any length of time before my stomach healed on the Warrior diet. But now it is a staple and causes no discomfort whatsoever. Eating corn and uncultured, commercial "yogurt" had done a real number on my stomach, but, thank goodness, that is behind me now. I can even eat tomato now and then without any problems - before GTD one bite would feel as if it were burning a hole in my stomach and my nerves would be shot. If I hadn't experienced this for myself, I would have forevermore thought that the tomato was the culprit instead of the corn and "yogurt!" BTW, I have no problem at all with real, cultured yogurt such as Stonyfield Farm.

Well, I gave blood at the Red Cross two days ago and I got my blood type results back on the phone today.

The BTD home test was right as rain.  I'm an A-positive.

Yeppers..I did the same thing, plus I went to the MD and got myself typed while he was doing routine blood work.   You just reminded me I'm due to give blood..ow. I usually give in the summer.

Here is the link I found to a gallstone-flushing treatment.  I'm going to give it a try tomorrow night, because it requires 24 hours of eating nothing with fat in it.

http://www.regaininghealthnatu.....nes_From_My_Body.PDF

It looks pretty reasonable.  The parent website is http://www.regaininghealthnaturally

Of course, if they don't like BTD, I'm done with them.

Ooh, I have just learned that with candida you can scrape off the white patch and that it may bleed when you do this...  Probably candida.  This is a sign of decreased immunity (duh), but hopefully your new diet will help get you back into tip-top shape immune-wise and this will go away on its own.

Yeah... and I'd been on the Hunter diet before, taking the anti-inflammatory stuff like crazy.  That probably made things much, much worse.

Now I'm doing the precise opposite on the A-Teacher diet:  I'm taking the supplements, as well as the immune-stimulating supplements in the Encyclopedia, as well as Rekon Pro.  

Once I finally understood my true blood type and read the Teacher vulnerabilities, I realized that I'd been doing precisely the worst things for myself.

The bitter lesson:  ALWAYS VERIFY YOUR BLOOD TYPE WITH AN ACTUAL TEST BEFORE STARTING THE DIET.  TRUST NOOOOO ONE.

Hopefully I should know any day now.  It was received by the lab on July 19th, and they say they need from 7 to 10 days to process it.

I just got my results, but I'm concerned about their validity.

It says I'm a non-secretor.

The reason I'm concerned about the validity, is because of the DHL delivery issue.  As I've already explained, the sample sat around for over two hours, unrefrigerated, because DHL has nothing in their database that showed the dropoff location I went to, as being in their system.

...This, despite the fact that there were "DHL Dropoff" locations all over the store.  

Anyhow, the shopkeeper phoned me two hours later to tell me that the company had never come by to pick up the sample.  So I rushed over, picked it up, and kept it in the refrigerator overnight.

The next morning, I drove around for an hour, looking for yet another DHL location.  I found a full-service location (not just a drop box) at a nearby mailing store, but the DHL driver had actually come by 15 minutes EARLY, and was long gone by the time I arrived.

So I was forced to drive across town and leave it off in a drop box, where it presumably sat for 30-45 minutes before the driver came to pick it up (if he ever came by at the proper time at all, I have no idea).

All in all, I had a nightmare experience with this company, and I can't help but wonder if sitting around for as long as it did, would have caused any secreted blood type antigen in the saliva sample to degrade, thereby giving me a false negative.
