Do not take chondroitin if you are an O it is very bad for us. Ask Dr D. He says it is like a bad blood transfusion and I can testify to that. If you want a real bad break out of thrush throughout take some chondroitin. I cant remember being so crook, just a few tablets set me back months of BTD good works. Cheers John.

NAG works even better than glucosamine
take bromelien for the inflammation
eat ginger
stay away from nightshade vegetables like tomotoes and peppers
eat foods high in Omga 3's like  beneficial fish and nuts like walnuts and flax seeds
stay away from grains even more than usual

I tell type O friends that haven't had any benefit from glucosamine/chondroitin mixed supplements (and I don't know anyone that it has helped) to give glucosamine alone a try.  The chondroitin would negate any benefit of the glucosamine.

I have a question:

At the pharmacy where I work we were asked a lot about MSM and glucosamine at one time. According to our customers, they've heard you should take the two supplements together to ensure maximum absorbtion of the glucosamine.

MSM wasn't available (don't think it's approved by the Danish FDA - not sure) so we asked around what to do, and were told, that you only need to take MSM and glucosamine together, if the glucosamine isn't a sulphate. All our glucosamine-products at the pharmacy turned out to be glucosamine-sulphates of some sort, so the MSM wasn't necesary.

Is that true? You don't need MSM, when the glucosamine you take is some sort of sulphuric compound?
Posted by: ISA-MANUELA (Guest), Wednesday, September 21, 2005, 9:02pm; Reply: 11
yup Poly if its' named Glucosamine sulphate... so it  is... but you may take MSM for
some pains or itchy things and I think it is also for pulmonal support and it's ok for some
skin problems,too- if I remember well :D

and dear pipnjohn.... ;) you're a real sweety.... but please do let the chondroitin for us,the AB's... not all is a goody-goody for you ;) ;D as being an O :D :X

Thank you mikeo, I thought that must be what you meant. How come it doesn't do any harm? Is it because it's not digested? I was so sick from digesting chondroitin I never want to try it again. Cheers John. :-/

I want some!!!  I play tennis every day and I'm a distance runner.  I used to be a vegetarian till I  got on the BTD, so  now I'm following not only the BTD , but the arthritis BTD, taking all the supplements and cutting out all the coffee, sugar.. etc.  that upsets arthritis.  I'm doing ok, but it's only been a  couple of weeks.
I'd sure like to know about the MSN stuff though.. is it a pill? where do you get it?  Anyone out there who has tips for knee arthritis.. please let me know!!  I NEED it... thanks..

Hello fellow BTDr's.

Today I bought a bottle of Kordel's (OptiMSM) USA. GLUCOSIMINE-MSM 1000 JOINT HEALTH FORMULA.

INGREDIENTS:Glucosamine Sulphate.500mg
MSM (MethylSulphonylMethane)        500mg
Formulated without avoids. Take 1-4 capsules daily with meals. I will start with one.

Everything else had Chondroitin in it.

Is this what I should take for my joints and aches and pains? (60 capsules for $21:30)   Cheers John. :-/

Are they Webb sites that I should look at for BTD products?
I would be happy buying at NAP but it is the exchange and freight costs that put me off.
There are lots of products available out here but they are nearly all contaminated with some other unsuitable items or are inferior. Thank you for your help. John. ;)

I am currently waiting for my bottle of Lorna Vanderhaeghe Celadrin to arrive.  I have used another brand and didn't notice a whole lot of difference, however, I've just started BTD as well.  I work at WFs in Canada and just took Lorna's training on Celadrin.  She's working on a cream that doesn't have the menthol in it as she gave some to a little girl and it cleared up her eczema.  I've used topical Celadrin (sold by AVON, can you believe it!! kewl) and it helped alleviate my arthritis in my hands a little.  I enjoyed reading her book on inflammation...found it very eye opening.
As I'm new here, I hope posting brand names etc. isn't against the rules.
I'm currently vacationing in FL and I've really upped my exercise ... thanks for the reminder about Arnica and the info on MSM ... boy do I need it  :D

I keep telling myself that, Lola... I've mastered all the food avoids.. my  only downfall is coffee with real sugar... a LOT!!  but I've been off of it for about 3 weeks now , so I know I can do it.  Today was especially hard because I had to get up at 5am to take my daughter to an out of town event... I would have LOVED some coffee for the road.. she's an A, so   she got to have some.  I stuck to my green tea.. plain... and I know I am better off in the long run.  I am still hoping  the arthritis in my knees will improve over time.... I'm doing physical therapy, too, and my physical  therepist is a die hard believer in the BTD.. he loves that I'm all into it, as well.  As always, I look forward to any tips anyone has on  O's and arthritis..

Give it some time. I think you will see some improvement. Your body may take months or even years to totally adjust to the benefits of the BTD.

Good for you that you are giving up the coffee.  I have heard many people say they had significant improvement of various health problems after finally giving up coffee on the type O BTD.

I just had arthroscopic cartilage repair in left hip last week, and doc says there's a "little softening" in posterior area..."expect arthritis in 10-15 years"....doesn't that mean I have it now?  He recommended glucosamine/chondroitin.  Now I will look for the supp that mikeo recommends...

My husband is an orthopod.. I'm educating him all the time about the BTD and all the things that work and don't work for different blood types:)

I think he was skeptical for awhile, but he's seen so many positive changes  in me that I really think I might eventually win him over.  I am seeing a physical therapist for a knee injury.  This therapist believes in the BTD %100, and says with the right therapy and following the diet, I may be up and running again.  I am currently following the  BTD for arthritis in D.  D's special book on arthritis.
My goad is to prove to my husband that with the right diet, patients go a long way towards healing themselves!

I have a little difficulty in deciphering the difference between the Glucosamines.

NAG  N-acetyl glucosamine.

Glucosamine sulfate.

The encyclopedia seems to get these two mixed up and confuses the issue on which is best for O's and A's.

Can somebody help clear this up for us. Cheers John. ::)

here s a quote by DR D:
''chondroitin that is the problem in Os

The reason?

If we were to analyze the structure of chondroitin we would see that it is actually long polymers (chains) of a repeating sugar, n-acetyl galactosamine.

N-acetyl galactosamine is the blood group A antigen.

Thus by consuming large amounts of chondroitin, type O's are inadvertently provoking their immune system with constant doses of what amounts to an incorrect blood transfusion!

Glucosamine doesn't do this, in fact glucosamine helps block many lectins, including wheat germ lectin. This may be more important to the healing of the arthritis found in many type O's than what the conventional thinking tells us about how glucosamine works.''

N acetyl glucosamine is what is in Deflect and is what you take to fend off some of the bad effects of avoids on your system.  It's a sacrificial molecule sort of.
Glucosamine Sulfate is for joint health.  They really are two different things.

I want to address Jane's comment about N acetyl glucosamine only being used in Deflect.  In Dr. Dadamo's Complete Blood type Encyclopedia, he lists N acetyel glucosamine for Type O to be used in the Arthritis Protocol.  

And after reading this thread is:  Is NAG better for us O+Secretors than the MSM Glucosamine combo?

My physical rehab doctor said the same thing. It is only the glucosamine that your body utilizes. Condroitin is merely voided in urine.

Hello,  i 'm sad because there is no French translation of the book "Arthritis, fight it with the Blood Type Diet"

I have a rare disease which started at 20 years: the chondromalacie;
it is a softening of all the cartilages of my body, in more i don't have the right to take more than 5 kilos so not my knees and ankles make me very badly!

The doctors discovered my disease at 30 years, I have 31 of them!

Since I began BDT, I stopped the drug of my rumatologist because there was chondroitine!

Since I do not have more pains as before (some of my articulations were blocked) but I have still badly sometimes!

has somebody  positive effects of the drugs for arthritis on the site abovie?

thank you in advance

Oh dear, I've been taking Glucosamine Chondritin M.S.M for a while now. It's a Bioscience product. In the recommended daily dosage of 2 tablets there is 1000mg glucosamine sulphate, 800mg chondritin and 750mg M.S.M. It has actually helped my knee joints. Ever since reading this thread I've stopped taking the tablets. The popping is back and so's the stiffness after resting my legs.

Any O non secretors exhibiting problems?

Dont know what to do really. I take Bromelain & Deflect regularly...but it was G-C-MSM which really gave me relief for the knees.

Lola...bone or broth soup from compliant sources...Would turkey bone soup/broth have chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate in it? Turkey is a neutral source for all blood types (Beneficial for A non-secretors) :)

I got a bunch of turkey legs at the store after Christmas & have a big pot of stock going. Wish it were organic turkey (or wild caught - someday soon!) then there would be less question of their hormone/antibiotic treatment.

All I know is turkey soup makes me feel good.

Do not take chondroitin if you are an O it is very bad for us. Ask Dr D. He says it is like a bad blood transfusion and I can testify to that. If you want a real bad break out of thrush throughout take some chondroitin. I cant remember being so crook, just a few tablets set me back months of BTD good works. Cheers John.


wow that explains so much
when my new supplements arrived I started taking them all dutifully every day.  And at the same time added in the glucosamine/chondroitin and MSM pills that I'd bought but never taken religiously

after just a few days I've gained 4 pounds (realy thought I'd have lost witht eh deflect and the fucus!)
and the candida is BAD but i had just been attributing that to the gluten free, o compliant, but still full of sugar christmas baking I did...

duh

well away with those giant size bottles of ineffective joint remedies for me!

Sounds like MSM is geat for o's. How much do we take on a daily basis? Also I am allergic to sulfa (Pharmaceutical) would MSM effect me the same way? I have taken joint compounds before..Osteo bi or tri flex brand(?)without any visible reactions. ??)

I take 500mg of MSM 2x per day.  It's part of the allergy protocol.

Frankincense is recommended to manage inflammation, and appears in quite a few protocols.....

Dr D on MSM
Quoted Text
MSM does not fall in that category. It is a highly purified form of sulfur, and sulfur is a constituent of all life. With MSM my concerns have always been that supplementing with high amounts, in addition to a high protein diet, could put a a strain on the kidneys. I've no proof that this is true, it is just an opinion. for things like chromium, MSM or algae, perhaps my position is more accurately that "they can have benefit in some people of a certain type, though they don't possess any specific attributes which will enhance the effect of the diets, and are perhaps redundant with it."

1000daily of msm? can it be taken at once? I found a 1000mg supplement so 1 pill. Also how much Glucosamine/day? My knee is really out of wack lately...old ligament tears and general wear, so id like to do what is the best thing. Ive been using Arnica and reiki and ice and heat (in am for stiffness) seems to be helping.
Thanks

I have taken glucsoamine/chronditon for awhile and havent seen any real improvement. I am BT A. Should I be only taking the MSM?  
I find all this interesting as my hips have improved so much in last while, with this and the nanogreens.
thanks for the info.

I can only take vegetarian glucosamine because of my seafood allergy.

Hi everybody,
I had some arthritis pains in my shoulders and after taking 3 times a day a pill with glucosamine, chondroitine and MSM the pain is gone for 95 %. I am very happy of course!
But what I was wondering is, can you take this kind of siupplement your whole life or is it better to take it for some time and then stop with it and see what happens?

Yes I do follow the advice in the book. About the secretor status that has to wait. No money for that now.
I probably will go and visit my doctor to ask what he thinks about this supplement. Although it is an allopatic doctor, maybe he has some advice too.

Johanna :)

Hi Cindy,

According to Dr. Adamo's Arthritis book A's only have to take a supplement with Glucosamine(1500 mg per day- Chondroitine 1200 mg per day). I have a supplement now that also has MSM in it, but after this bottle is empty I am planning on taking only Glucisamine and Chondroitine.
In Dr. Adamo's Arthritis book there are a lot of other supplements you can take. I didnot do that until now, because I think I don't need it right now, but if you have severe pains I think it is a good thing to follow the 12 weeks protocol that he recommends.

Johanna :)

Is there anything new from Dr D about MSM for Os, that he's said or typed since  this was quoted?

Quoted from Lola
Glucosamine, is ok for Os.
chondroitin, is fine for As.


How about AB's?

I haven't read the whole thread...
So is Glucosamine, not for A's at all?

Thanks.
