FWIW, I do eat a tiny amount of dark chocolate every week.  It's about the only thing that doesn't mess with me.  It's a very small amount, so I don't care that it has sugar in it.  Because I don't touch it any other time.  I eat a tiny bit of honey in my grains, but even that amount is laughable.  It's like 1/4 teaspoon or so.  I do it because there might be benefits to it.  But if I eat too much of any sweetener, my heart races.  Even honey.  Stevia never seemed to do that to me though.  But for some reason I quit eating that too.

I had blood drawn today for my IBA 22 IgG testing.  I almost went down for the count.  I had two people holding my head up while I drank orange juice (yuk) and ate premium saltines (blech!!).  It was an adventure.  I will find out the results on Nov 21st when I go back to the ND.  Am very curious.   btw, is passing out when having blood drawn a Type O thing?  This isn't the first time it has happened to me.

I don't pass out, but I can't watch.  I definitely look away.  Please let us know what your testing shows when you get the results.  Sorry it was so difficult for you to have the blood drawn

JJR, it sounds like you are really in touch with your body.  I think you should eat your chocolate!

Thanks Patty, I don't watch when they draw blood either!  I will definitely let you all know the results when I get them.

I've donated platelets for years and occasionally they take blood products.

After platelet donation, (two hours lying very still) I do feel cold and have to get out in the sun pronto.  I've never fainted, but I can get tired real easy after donation.

I always watch them put the needle in. I can tell if a nurse is good at their job or not, just by watching how they attempt to get the vein.

that sounds really uncomfortable.  I have never heard of donating platelets.  Why do you do that?  To be charitable or to have them store them for your own potential later use?  Just curious, KK.  I have wondered if I should start donating blood (although I am exactly at the weight where it is questionable as to whether I CAN donate) because of my rare blood antigen.

Thanks PattyH.  Like I said, I have no clue if it's good or bad for me, but it makes me feel good mentally.  And supposedly chocolate does have some good properties, so, a little bit isn't going to kill me.  It gives my spirits a boost.  I think.


I can't watch them taking my blood.  Or put the needle in.  I did get lightheaded once when they took a lot of blood.  And one time when I tried to watch.  So I learned.

I'm O neg, universal donor, the most needed blood type.  Los Angeles has a large Blood Type O population because of the high percentage of Latinos.

Years ago, I learned that one of my relatives by marriage, the wife's children had  a rare disorder that could only be cured by a bone marrow transfusion.  At that time, to get on the bone marrow registry, all I had to do was donate platelets to the Red Cross. It wouldn't cost anything if I did that.  Unfortunately, the children did not survive; I believe they were unable to find matches for them. Now, I do it as part of giving back to society.  

You are hooked up to a machine with a needle in one arm. You get to lie on a very form fitted lounger type chair, that has a video screen so you can watch DVD movies. You get your own head phones to listen.  From the time I first get in the chair to when I leave it can be as long as 2 hours, depending on if they take a double or triple draw from me. Each time I go, you have to answer all the questions on their very detailed questionaire, just to ensure that the blood you are donating is from a safe source.  I'm a high platelet producer, so the Red Cross loves for me to donate.  You can donate platelets every 2 weeks, compared to whole blood products which is a much longer time frame.


Platelets I believe are for cancer patients that are not making enough of their own platelets while they are undergoing cancer treatment.  One time, years ago, the Red Cross called me in because my platelets were almost a perfect match for a patient at UCLA.  That was a very rewarding experience, and I've continued to donate platelets over the years.  Each platelet donation counts the same with the Red Cross as if you donated a pint of whole blood.

If you (collective you reading this) are healthy and can donate blood products, please do.  Give back to society and possibly save a life.

As an aside, the nurse's have occasionally commented on my good iron count, (because they get patients that can't donate due to low iron.  I always tell them it's because of the Blood Type Diet and that I eat plenty of red meat.  I tell them that if they have Type A's (or AB's) that want to donate but can't because of low iron, they should recommend liquid chlorophyl (made from alfalfa) to them. Although chlorophyl doesn't have iron in it, (IIRC, there is only one molecule different between chlorophyl and red blood) my herbalist told me years ago it acts like a blood booster, or a blood transfusion in the body.

Sharing with the best of intentions.

I got my Intestinal Barrier Assessment 22 IgG results today.  On the Food Parameter Summary, Egg Whites and Pork are High. Moderate is Baker's Yeast, Kidney Beans, Beef, Brewer's Yeast, Corn and Cow's Milk.  Low is Gluten, Oats, Shrimp and Wheat.  I have been Gluten Free since 9/5/11 so that isn't a problem.  Egg Yolks and Beef are a Super Food on my Swami Xpress and egg whites are a neutral.  I've been eating a lot of beef.  Wonder why that is a super food for me.

Wow!  That is interesting that egg whites are high and beef and yeast are moderate, since those things are supposed to be good for O's.  Sardines and herring tested moderate for me so I had to cut those out of my diet, losing one of my staple lunch foods.

Are you allowed to eat the things that register low?

No Patty, nothing is allowed until my gut is healed.

Good luck with that NancyEllen.  Did you have the testing because you are having difficulty with your gut?  I never did but my doctor wanted to rule out some stuff, so that is why mine was tested.

Thanks Patty!

No I never felt any symptoms in my gut.  I am feeling very tired and also have a lot of stress.  Even though I am tired, I have trouble sleeping but the ND gave me something to help my cortisol levels when I saw her on 11/2/11.  I have been sleeping deeper which is such a change for me.  So things will get better.  It just takes time.

If you don't mind me asking, NancyEllen, what did your ND give you for cortisol?  I have the exact same issue.  According to some recent testing, I am in "wear and tear mode".

Patty!!  I am so sorry!  I never saw your question.  The ND gave me Designs for health "Phosphatidyl Serine Powder" 1/4 tsp at a time.  It is very expensive so when it was used up, I already had a bottle of Seriphos "Phosphorylated Serine" in my cupboard so I open up the capsule, divide the powder in half and mix one of the halves with a little bit of organic unsweetened applesauce about an hour before I go to bed.  Then while I am reading in bed, I take 4 1 mgs of sublingual melatonin.  This has worked out great for me.  I am sleeping better, although I still wake up during the night, and feeling much better!  I hope that helps.

Patty - I took the IgG food blood test because I thought I might have leaky gut syndrome. My IgG test showed I should avoid avacado, banana, blueberry, orange, papaya, pineapple, red grape, gliadin, gluten, malt, rye, wheat, eggs, mushrooms, asparagus, garlic, and squash mix. These were the exact fruits I had been eating practically every day, along with mushrooms, asparagus, garlic, and squash every few days. I was told that the test was for the delayed, not the fast-acting food allergies. I thought I had been avoiding gluten-containing foods and eggs because I am highly allergic to them, but they told me I was getting gluten and eggs in something because they scored the highest. I found out it was because of the mayonaise on my salads. Dairy foods scored low, even though I know I am allergic to them. Same with oats. They said it was because there was none in my system to test, as I had not been eating those things. The other foods scored moderate or low, even though I had never even tasted some of them. O.K., then, I thought maybe everything I was eating caused a reaction. But no, aparently not. For example, peanuts, which I eat all the time, scored low, yet sunflower seeds, which I am highly allergic to and never eat, showed low also. Crazy! The IgG doctor said avoid all those things for 4 months, and then reintroduce them one at a time on a 4-day rotation diet and see how I do.
A lot of things on that avoid list are also on my Swami avoid list, BUT there are also things that are on the IgG avoid list that are on my Swami beneficial list. So it is confusing.
So what I've done for now, is avoid everything that is on my Swami avoid list, everything that I know absolutely that I have had allergic reactions to for years, and everything that is on my IgG avoid list.
That basically leaves vegetables (which I'm learning to eat), a few beans, a few fruits, a few nuts, some fish (which I don't like), and I eat a little good beef occasionally. So eating is no fun!!!! And I still don't feel good, basically because some of these foods are causing my pulse to go up and bothering my heart. Ugggggg!

It sounds like you are dealing with a very porous intestinal lining.  Probably should spend some time focusing on intestinal health
to reduce the sensitivity to the foods that are supposed to be good for you...
