DH and I have been following the BTD since January 2007 pretty compliantly, me more than him. We've "converted" many of our friends who have all reported health improvements. We just had slight sticking points with our parents. They say never treat your family, don't they?

So, this is Mum's story. She's coming up to 74 and has always suffered with bloating, as well as a nasty allergy to bananas. This last is not surprising as she's an A, almost certainly a secretor. She's already worked out that the bloating is worse after bread or cakes, and she's gone right off potatoes since I suggested she give them up for a while. She's also making her own bread with spelt flour but she's mixing it with wheat flour because it rises better. I've been trying to get her to change but so far unsuccessfully.

We went to stay with her and brought our own compliant Ezekiel bread which we didn't finish so we left it with her. While I was there, I measured her up for a suit for my cousin's wedding. 2 days later when we were home, I rang her and she was very cross with me. She wanted to cancel the suit because I must have made a huge mistake with the measurements - her waist was 3" smaller than I had measured it. We talked for a while and she calmed down. She mentioned she needed to make some more bread because she'd been finishing up ours. This was a light-bulb moment. We both realised that just by taking out a couple of slices of half-wheat bread per day for 2 days, she'd dropped 3" around the waist. She suddenly realised she hadn't had any bloating either. Bingo.

I ordered the suit. She was still worried about the measurements but I joked that if it didn't fit, she could adjust her wheat intake the week before the wedding, to fit the suit!

Here's MIL's story. She has always suffered periodically with what she calls "attacks" of acute indigestion, with pain so severe that she passes out, has diarrhoea and often vomits. She has had one each of the 3 times she has come to stay with us pre-BTD, and many times in between. Most days she gets ordinary indigestion, bad enough to keep her awake at nights. She's an A and is taking antacids from the GP (sigh, I know, I know.) Again, we've tried to suggest things to help her, but she's a darling stubborn taurus like me (both born on the same day 25 years apart) and some things she just wouldn't alter.

They've just stayed with us for a fortnight, during which I fed us all completely compliant meals whether they liked them or not. And somewhat to their surprise, they did like them. And MIL took some of DH's A Deflect. And well I'm blessed, no attacks. And only one bad night of indigestion which she put down to jet-lag and too much wine after dinner. She was impressed!

She's gone home with a bottle of DH's A Deflect and some ideas for recipes replacing her usual sweet potato with pumpkin, the BTD mayonnaise recipe, and adding garlic and ginger amongst other things. She was surprised how small the changes had to be to make a compliant meal. And I think I may have to get her Live Right 4 Your Type for Christmas!

How much more satisfying it is to help your loved ones, than helping yourself. Thank you Dr. D, from us all!

Squirrel,

I totally get the Taurus thing.     .   But we do love quality... so once we see it were loyal!

I know 3 other women who are born on my b-day exactly too.  Keep helping others. Karma baby Karma

I worked for a conventional doctor in the past who would NOT see any family members.  If you are in conventional medicine, that's probably a good idea since you probably will make them worse anyway.

Ooer. I've written it down wrongly. He's away right now, but I'll have to get him to take the test again when he gets back, and record it properly this time. Thanks for pointing that out!
