for some, cutting out eggs helps...
for sure, omega 3's help! oatmeal for GLA, and fish or flax oil for EPA.

abigezunt, are you doing just foods or are you supplementing also?  I second jayneeo's suggestion to try fish oil.  It's often recommended for eczema.  Do you eat enough fish according to your A diet recommendation?

Dr. D mentioned getting good results with a patient's psoriasis from using lots of unpasteurized butter and the herb Salvia miltiorrhiza. I'm not sure what the patient's blood type was.  Psoriasis and eczema often respond to the same treatment so that is another option to look into.

I suggest you list all the food you have eaten in the last week. in detail missing nothing. keep a diary.

when you do this we will give you some pointers that you may like to try. it could be sugar, salicylates, amines, glutamates, coffee, a combination of all these. it could be anything but one thing is for sure the BTD will improve you and you rcondition, you may then have to fine tune it if you want faster results, in my experience.

without enough information it is a wate of time guessing what could be wrong when it could be anything.

list the food.

Thank you for replying to my question.

My doctor did a book type test when he suggested I go on the diet.  I've cut out coffee, sugar, wheat and I hardly eat any fruits.  In fact right now I'm eating very little because I'm not sure what to eat.

What is SWAMI?

Once again, thank you to everyone who responded to my query.


OK, so you know you are an A type. As Lola suggested above, you should also do a secretor test (she provided a link) because a small percent of people are nonsecretors, and if you are, the diet changes. That will also help you if you do the SWAMI.

SWAMI is software that you pay to use online. It will ask you many questions about yourself. You will give some medical history, some measurements, answer some fingerprint questions, etc. Then it will give you an individualized diet. I had no success on the A diet either. But when I did my SWAMI, the diet has been very good for me and my eczema is much better. You can order the SWAMI software here:

Once again, thank you so much to everyone.  You guys are great.

I've recently begun taking two Omega 3 pills/day.  Right now these are the only supplements I'm taking.

I do have two questions re: two of the responses:

1.  I was told recently that many types of fish - especially Salmon - are detrimental for people with Eczema.  So I've cut down on fish and totally eliminated Salmon.  If anyone could give me the run-down on this I'd greatly appreciate it.

2.  I do eat oatmeal, but what are EPA and GLA?

Any info on these two questions and anything else that would be helpful would be so greatly appreciated.

As suggested I will start a food diary.

With many, many thanks and all best wishes for all your help.

EPA is an important omega 3 fat which is anti-inflammatory, and GLA is another one of the healthy fats which is said to be good for skin! GLA can be found in oats in small amounts or taken as supplements from borage oil or evening primrose or black current oil.

I am dealing with eczema, as I mentioned before. I ate salmon two days ago and eat fish regularly, and do not see any increase in my problem. It is an individual thing. It might be a problem for one person and not another. That is why some foods, such as canola oil, get negative publicity. Perhaps it had a bad effect on some test subjects, so it is blackballed. But the same test on other people (another bloodtype, genotype) might have caused no problem. That is why we here eat for our type or do our swami (in my opinion, that is the best route).



You guys are great!

From all of the research I have read, Salmon is very anti-inflammatory.  Of course, once again, the correct salmon is necessary.  Make sure the salmon you are getting is wild-caught salmon.  Farm-raised fish is not a "natural" fish - it is fed a grain based diet, which changes the fat make-up of the animal raised.

when I gave up coffee that coffee was the culprit. I have tested it out twice since then and discovered that having a cup of coffee sets my eczema on fire.


Kescah, thanks for mentioning this!  My husband's eczema is "on fire" right now so I mentioned your comment.  He stopped drinking coffee as of this morning.  I hope he sticks with it and finds out coffee is causing the eczema.

Interesting! Let me know how it goes.

Also interesting, policychecker. I guess we need to let the NDs out there know to add that to their list of don'ts.

Lola, please elaborate.

here are a few facts
hope that s elaborate enough!
Quoted Text
In LR4YT on page 137 it is written that all
forms of Coffee increase stomach acid production, something most O's don't need too
much help with, if the stomach is working properly.


Quoted Text
You can read about caffeine for type O in LR4YT on page 169-70. The short version is it is not recommended. coffee raises your adrenaline levels (stress) which can cause a hypoglycemic effect in O's because our adrenaline levels are high (flight or fight) to begin with especially if you do not exercise regularly.


Quoted Text
increased cortisol which increases intraabdominal fat. coffee-elevates cortisol levels which promotes fat storage.


Quoted Text
mimics insulin resistance hypoglycemia or some sort of blood sugar issue
Crashing and burning and then...Starting to crave carbohydrates messes w/ the adrenal glands hypertension. Also it causes excess acidity leading to acid reflux.
