I have been suffering from lower back pain (happens every couple of years if I don't keep up with exercise).  So - instead of the new NSAID my doctor prescribed I opted for something natural.  Didn't look at my Dr. D encyclopedia, however, before hobbling to the health food store.  Picked up Boswellia for a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory - then discovered, upon my collapse once back home - that maybe Boswellia is a no no for B's?  The encyclopedia stated it was good for all other types buy left B out.  Does that mean B's should avoid?  I did see Tumeric and other things were right for B as I looked up "inflammation"…  But is Boswellia "bad" or not effective for B's?  Ayuda me!

Not sure. Dr D didn't list herbs as completely as he did foods. It's impossible to know if an herb is "avoid" or "just neutral" when it's not on the list for your type. This is especially important when looking at combination remedies- if it contains a few beneficials and a neutral, it's  fine to use. If it contains something that may actually be harmful, then it's not OK to use.

Plus, there are some herbs that may be useful for short-term use even if they're not safe for long-term use in your blood type.

I doubt there's a harmful lectin in there, since it's safe for ABs.


Also, the phlocixin supplement, which contains boswellia, is marketed as "for all types." There's no mention in the product description about this product being inappropriate for type Bs.

I take Boswellia and Tumeric extract regularly for joint health and general anti-inflammation.  They seem to be good friends to my body.

I just learned on a follow-up, after tests and x-rays that I have a bit of arthritis in my lower spine area.   Dr. says this is to be expected for my age and nothing serious.  So - I have the boswellia…  Also looked up the protocol for B's w/arthritis.  I checked out Dr. D's supplements for joint and mobility, too.  Before I order I wanted to ask - has anybody used any of his sups for arthritis? Particularly if you are a B bonnie, like me - which have worked best for you?  

I gotta say, too - I just love the brilliance of Dr. D.   I can go on in life being my happy go lucky self while he has put his brain to the grindstone and given us all this knowledge … and quality productsr to enhance he enjoyment of life. So way ahead of the game, too.  Don't mind me - I'm in my early morning sentimental mood…

In addition to the last question, can anyone tell me why my home BT encyclopedia lists a different protocol for arthritis than the online encyclopedia?  On line it reads as follows:

BLOOD GROUP B
Deflect B (lectin-blocking formula): 2 capsules, 2-3 times daily between meals
Live Cell B (sprouted food formula food formula): 2 capsules, 2-3 times daily
S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe): 400 mg, 1-2 enteric-coated capsules, 2-3 times daily
Niacinamide (vitamin B3): 500 mg, 1-2 capsules, 2 times daily

My book advises glucosamine and no Live Cell B.  

Should I omit glucosamine? Or just add Live Cell B…. ??

Is glucosamine in the Live Cell B?  The encyclopedia came out first. I believe when the protocols were updated. Many of the BT subs had been developed which makes it easier to get some ingredients  and removes any problems with finding the dosage to use.

deblynn - That's why I was confused.  I looked at what was in each of the prescribed supplements - the Live Cell B does not have glucosamine.  I know why glucosamine is relevant to my issue but I'm not sure what purpose the Live Cell B serves with regard to arthritis issues.      I'm sure its not going to kill me - I got the glucosamine anyway and if I ever find out what Live Cell B does for arthritis I'll order it.  Thank you for responding! I appreciate the input
