My mother, a type O nonnie, had aortic valve replacement surgery on Thursday and is doing quite well despite her age. What can she do to insure that her recovery is swift. Would appreciate some ideas in the line of sups or food. Thanks

Dr. D's Post Surgery Recovery Protocol would be a good place to start!  Good health and blessings for speedy healing to her.

I was going to post the link to the post-surgery protocol but Victoria beat me to it.

Additionally, sticking to BTD or SWAMI  beneficials during the healing phase (or at least once she's out of the hospital and has control over her diet) will promote faster healing.

Thanks guys, she does not really follow a BTD per se, but she does avoid most of the major O nonnie avoids.

Group, I am a Newbie to most of this... Been following BTD casually for 2 years or so... I recently decided to go all out and follow the Secretor, Geno Test and OxyStress I purchased two years ago !!!.

I am stiil waiting for the Secretor, as I sent it in yesterday.

My reason for posting is, I had my Aortic Valve and a few inches of my Aorta replaced 2 yrs and 2 months ago... Recovery wasn't easy, but it never is with open heart surgery through the breast bone.

I recovered very well, a few months later and returned to bike riding and light weight lifting as my exercise roiutine, which helped A LOT.

I have repsonded well to the O type diet change in the last week and expect to improve once I know my secretor status and refine my daily eating habits..

Natuaraly, I am concerned about the Daily Asprin Protocall, of 81 mg a day, all traditional doctors suscribe too.

As soon as I get the Secretor Test Results, I will put together an order with Dr. D's Cardio book, Deflect O Sale, this month and Swami.

That should get me off to a good start !!!

I am curious, is it possible for Dr. D to speak with my Cardiologist and brainstorm something ???

Does it cost money or how does one go about that ???

Thanks, John

Welcome John.    Dr. D's Cardiovascular support book has a lot of very helpful recommendations for supplements to support your healing.

As far as questions about working with Dr. D'Adamo personally, you can call the number at this link and find out all your options.
http://www.dadamo.com/patients.html

One of the things Dr. D says about cardio health for type O's is to be careful about over-doing the carbs.  Try and get lean, grass-fed beef, lamb, buffalo and fatty, cold-water fish, with lots of fresh vegetables in your diet.  This is by no means a comprehensive picture, just the basics.

A fascinating book called, "Health and Nutrition Secrets," by Russell L Blaylock MD, includes a chapter on this.  In short, anti-oxidants are very important.  


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.

Too much is also no good.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/09/opinion/sunday/dont-take-your-vitamins.html

Quoted Text
Then, in 2004, a review of 14 randomized trials for the Cochrane Database found that the supplemental vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene, and a mineral, selenium, taken to prevent intestinal cancers, actually increased mortality.

Another review, published in 2005 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that in 19 trials of nearly 136,000 people, supplemental vitamin E increased mortality. Also that year, a study of people with vascular disease or diabetes found that vitamin E increased the risk of heart failure. And in 2011, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association tied vitamin E supplements to an increased risk of prostate cancer.

Finally, last year, a Cochrane review found that “beta carotene and vitamin E seem to increase mortality, and so may higher doses of vitamin A.”

What explains this connection between supplemental vitamins and increased rates of cancer and mortality? The key word is antioxidants.

I have no idea what is right .. but my mom had big surgery and lived to tell the tale.. one thing she was strong on, was to do as she pleased.  No cajoling would persuade her to do things she did not want. I think that is what kept her alive and I may say well for decades after her surgery at 29 and then again at 80.

Mom knew what she needed, she did it her way.  She would easy eat the foods I cooked, and she would eat the cake she saw some place.  She ate the foods she liked, the fruit she was accustomed to and she enjoyed her friends wherever they where.  

Mom could be very frustrating, and sometimes hard to understand..  like when she asked that I close my curtains - and I gave her a big argument- only to lie down on the same couch she was lying on for years, and then I found out that the silver clouds where blinding.. I learned to late.. to see the world form HER view point.  Several things like that I might do differently today. to late, but now I share this with you.  

Mom lived many years and needed some care the last 10 years.  I did well enough, but sometimes I was to direct, to direct, to 'not understanding', to know it 'differently...  I learned but only after she past on at 91..  

Today I say: enjoy the time you have - enjoy the heck out of all moments, let go of this or that, and then you will do more for her than all the sups in the world.  Oh yes I would pursue all that you wish, but just do not forget that moms have a way of surviving long before we got in the middle.

I wish you much happiness with Mom, and all the best.  (much patience, much support, not just from you- we all needed a break from each other as well every so often, important. ask mom all the questions about the why ow how come of her life and if she lets you video tape her ... those moments on tape can be sooooo lovely.    


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
