Quoted Texti thought coconut is excellent for thyroid?
Quoted TextDr D
I don't like the effects of one of the main constituents (lauric acid) on the cytochrome CYP4A subfamily (CYP4A11) when used by certain BT/GTs; in particular liver peroxisomal oxidation, which is about the last thing one needs in this world.
Dr. Enig is a fine lipid chemist, but has a tendency to think coconut oil is just wonderful in everyone.
Some people don't do as well as others running a soap through their bile ducts.
I just realized coconut oil is an avoid for the A's in my family and since I don't know secreter status of my O kids, could be an avoid for some of them as well.
Bummer. Need a cooking oil that would be compliant for all of us...
how do you swami?
what is involved?
Nonnie is a Non-Secretor. Hunter is one of the six Genotypes from The Genotype Diet book.and what is a nonnie hunter?
The Blood Type Diet and The Genotype Diet are two separate plans. The BTD fits you to your blood type gene. The GTD fits your genes to you, by changing what genes are able to express themselves.this is so confusing!! it seems that food changes from being an avoid to something you can have depending on what program you follow.....how can that be?
Quoted from WholefoodieWhy not olive oil? Beneficial for everyone.
Quoted from grey rabbitCoconut oil is a superfood on my swami, I don't know if your children are old enough to be swamiied.
How old do you have to be to get "swamied"?
Quoted from KimonoKat
Rice Bran Oil. It also has a very high cook point. And, it tastes great. I find I don't like foods cooked in anything else.
Not many stores carry it but it's easy to buy online. We buy by the FIVE GALLON and transfer it to empty glass Gerolsteiner bottles and store it in the freezer.
Quoted from 28260Hi all - I live in the Pacific on a small island surrounded by all things coconut! The Nu (juice) is a staple in my diet as is the flesh - fresh not cooked - although I don't use the oil much except for my skin. What is the exact issue with the coconut for Os - is it only the oil or the flesh AND the juice as everything points to it being wonderful and has not affected me adversely to my knowledge.
Quoted from aussielady582This is an interesting topic to keep looking into. For me with Aboriginal and Greek ancestory, I don't eat coconut products much (I used to though). In Dr D's book, Cardiovascular Disease, coconut oil is good for type O nonnies. For me, I may use it on occasion, but I prefer to use ghee, or duck fat as my aboriginal ancestors would have done. I was born in Tasmania, and no coconuts down there! With my gut in poor condition (Dr Dr is right about grains, sugars, and starches), yes, the oil in small quantities ok as antibacterial and antifungal properties. I still use garlic, lemon juice, fresh and dried herbs and spices to help in my gut and now have taken out seed-like grains too as in Dr Cordain's book,
'The Paleo Answer' - low starch veggies are much better in my system. and of course, freshly cooked broths from beef bones and chicken/duck bones. The inflammation in my system is slowly disappearing, as my sleep is better, my hair smoother and softer, headaches/migraines better, skin softer, feel better when wake up in morning. I had chicken/duck bone soup with veggies last weekend and wow, my system worked so well and so much energy yesterday too - I felt like a 'true hunter' able to go walkabout and get so much done during the day. Plus relaxed in bathtub, abdominal massage all helps.
Now happily grain, sugar, starch free!! this means no carob or chocolate or cocoa. I make something sweet out of nuts/seeds/nut butters, but less and less often as fruit is so good, esp now in Aussie summer. I believe Dr Gabriel Cousen's piece from his web site on starchaholics, so now guess I am a recovering starchalcholic, and learning to deal with life much more positively.
Quoted from Living9Oh well, I haven't been on here for a while and in the meanwhile there is a new SWAMI kit which sounds great.
I live in the UK and use an Apple Mac. I have two questions for users i would really appreciate an answer to.
1) I am an O (and really getting into Coconut oil, hence the return to this site)
2) I never established my secretor type
3) If I buy the SWAMI software will it be important to know my secretor type
4) Does the software update naturally and without further cost?
Many thanks for any help in this matter.
Interesting because coconut oil is a superfood on my Swami. So not bad for all O's. I was thrilled to see that, as I have a few gallons of it laying around!
Just wondering what makes it good for O nonnie Hunters.....?

Glad I read that. Guess I have to break down & buy the swami book. Or is there a type food type base resource for that..?
Quoted from Dr. DEach person is different. There are differences between the same blood groups, if you break them down further. The more proinflammatory a person's physiology tends to be the more you want to limit dietary myristic acid (coconut: 18%) and palmitic acid (coconut: 8%) especially if the person is overweight, has osteoporosis, has dysbiosis, or is prone to diabetes or arterial disease, since these acids activate the P2X7 receptors which are major regulators of inflammation.
Quoted from Patty H
What about a family history of Alzheimer's? It is my understanding that coconut oil can help with this.
Quoted from deblynn3Are you sure about the Almond Milk? Both my books are out but I seem to remember it being a superfood, or at least neutral. Soy and dairy are out.
welcome back by the way. :)
looked it up on food base. (pull down tab, on support, blue bar top of page) Almond milk is listed a neutral for sec and avoid for non-sec.
It is a diamond, super for me with my swami
Quoted from sk8terI must be a non sec because I dont feel good when i have used almond milk in the past ....
