I found some place where they were discussing supplements in the past and then i lost it...but as far as I got i didn't see anything about anyone's experience with Deflect.

Has anyone used this product and had the white lines in their fingerprints lessen? I ordered it yesterday and i'm going to give it a try.

I have used Deflect too, but not thinking in my  white lines, so I have few right now.

It works very well for intestinal and joint support  

For my mom works very well for Arthritis...

WOW, Larry.... THAT is a very impressive testimony.  I'm probably not taking enough Deflect!  Only 2 per day.  I'm going to take more. Do you take it on an empty
stomach or with meals?

deflect and a gluten free diet along with ghee will speed up the healing of the gut hence the reduction of white lines

I received my supplements yesterday and was able to take Deflect again after being off for over a month.  It made such a notable differenct in my physiology and emotional state . . . it gives me such a balanced state of being. It's a wonder drug I tell ya!

If you can handle any more gratitude Dr. D . . . thank you so much for your work in this area!  I'm very grateful to have found the BTD . . . it has changed my life.

I don't have a white-line issue, but I do take Deflect every day just before bed. I've been eating especially bad the last few weeks, so I welcome all the help I can get to carry away those nasty lectins.

Is there a beneficial accumulative effect from taking deflect everyday or would every few days work just as well? I don't think i'm asking this correctly. Could someone interpret me please.

There are two two common approaches to taking Deflect:

As an emergency aid for reducing the effects of having eaten the wrong foods that day. In this case one takes Deflect only when one needs it.

The other approach is to take Deflect to improve health after a lifetime of eating incorrectly.

The later approach helps deal with:



If you are taking Deflect to help deal with ongoing health concerns, I would think you would be better off not skipping days.

Drea you're supposed to take it with your largest meal. How can it do anything if you take it at bedtime? :-/

Hmmm, I thought that taking Deflect with a meal helps the lectins eaten at that meal, but taking it away from food helps with stored lectins. I'll look into this theory better. Thanks for pointing this out.

The directions on the bottle says to take 2 capsules, 2-3 times per day with meals . . . for lectin-sensitive individuals.

So sometimes you take it with meals and sometimes you take it between meals. Is that the consensus?

Hey Larry....So what other things have you noticed about your health since the white lines are gone? Did they disappear within a couple of years or longer?

Does that mean if I want to use it for arthritis and lectin damage I have to take 2 between meals and 2 with meals??  Or, do you think the two I take before meals will still work on the lectins?

I'm not an authority on Deflect....I merely went to look at the health protocols after
reading about Deflect.  The way I'm interpreting the need for using
Deflect between meals is that for specific health issues, the causes for them
might have been because of the diet you followed prior to the BTD.  The
improper food choices for your blood type gave you lectin damage in the first place. The blood type diet with it's avoidance of harmful lectins should slowly
help heal that damage...Deflect is an "assist"..Probably the reason for using
it between meals is that without food in the gut, Deflect can work on old
damage.  I think it's a slow process to heal old lectin damage..Following the BTD super carefully will also help rid the body of lectin damage but continuing to eat avoids will continue to produce more lectin damage.

I think the instructions on the Deflect bottle apply to eating toxins and preventing
them from doing damage...In that case, if you ate wheat for example and it was
inflammatory to your gut, Deflect would block the toxins from getting into your
blood stream...via your gut.

So your question is: would you need even more Deflect if you ate avoids at a
particular meal?

If it were me, I'd take it again....to "Deflect" the improper lectins you've just eaten..

But honestly, if you're trying to heal something like arthritis, and relieve yourself
of the aches, pains and damage to the joints, you'd probably be doing yourself
a really big favor to avoid the toxins as much as possible in the first place....
not add more toxicity to your body.

Based on what Larry said....6 Deflect per day got rid of his white lines..I'm
making the assumption that Larry has healed his gut.

Given that 60-70% of our immune system is located in our guts.  Heal your gut...heal your body!

I guess we all just have to keep our priorities straight.  This diet only works if
you follow it carefully...and Deflect isn't a magic bullet....It is designed to assist
your body in healing.  And it will "deflect" toxin lectins eaten at a meal...but
consider that if you've got old damage and are adding new damage, you
wouldn't be making a lot of progress.

Whew...:)

Well, thank you!  That make alot of sense to me.

I'll take Defelct between meals for healing of old lectins/arthritis and only if I'm eating out or am tempted, will I take with a meal.

Is there any reason why someone couldn't take one deflect every hour? Speed up the healing?  
Posted by: Lola, Friday, February 20, 2009, 11:13pm; Reply: 26
healing takes the time it needs.....I don t think popping deflect will shorten it, but I also do not think you could actually overdose when taking more of it.

try doubling the dose, if you like, but not every hour! ;)

Has anyone experienced stomach or intestinal discomfort after taking Deflect?  

My wife is an O, and I've been working to get her to follow the diet for her type.  I bought her some Deflect for type O, as I've benefited from taking Deflect for type B.  However, each time she takes it, either with a meal or on an empty stomach, it makes her sick to her stomach.  

She doesn't have any food allergies, that we know of, so I'm at a loss to explain why the supplement bothers her.  Could she have so much lectin damage in her gut that the supplement is 'cleaning house', for lack of a better term, and that's causing the stomach upset?  

Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have found sometimes with deflect that i feel like a little sick. I might even describe it as a speeding up of the digestive processes...like things start to "move" around. Other times i feel that feeling one gets when one hasn't eaten for a long time...a feeling of weakness from not eating..but i have eaten. On the other hand, i had a meatball at a party the other night, not thinking that there were breadcrumbs in there, and felt sick later that night and took deflect and it went away.

I would just like to point out that Deflect works best when you're fairly compliant
on the diet...It can also Deflect randomly eaten avoids for a person who has been following the diet pretty well, but from your post, I can't tell if your wife is actually following the BTD diet or just taking Deflect.  Remember that there is old lectin damage that will go away when the diet is followed in conjuction with taking Deflect...but if a person is eating too many bad lectins for
their blood type, I can't see how Deflect is going to do all the work by itself.

I find that the longer you're compliant, the better Deflect works on a daily basis.
I used to react negatively to taking it...but greater compliancy with the diet contributed to having less or no negative reactions to Deflect at all.  I take it
between meals....two pills, twice a day.  :)

Thanks much Ladies.

I agree that she has some housecleaning to do.  She's not anywhere near 100% compliant, but she's making small steps in that direction.  The more she sees the positive effect it has on me, the more willing she is to give it a try.  Of course, us Bs have it a bit easier than Os do.   ;D

I also agree that the Deflect gets 'better' the longer you're on the diet and more compliant you are.

I couldn't find the subject of 'white lines'..so i'm going to ask my question here. I have white lines on all my fingers..mostly my thumbs. Since i haven't eaten a great deal of bread or dairy in my life..i'm thinking that they come from something i have done everyday for years...like aspertame in diet cola or the milk fat or vanilla in the hershey bar. Are there any 0's out there who might take a guess from there experience which one might be causing this. Of course i know they are both bad for me. But which is the lesser of two evils?

THis is all very interesting.  I remember reading where that if you are going to have a meal where  you know there are avoids, that you should take 2 an hour before meal and two after.  I tried it once when out eating and it worked beautifully.  I didn't have any after-affects.

But this thread is very confusing in that regard as far as when to take it, how much, etc., etc.  When not taking it for a meal that had avoids we just would take it with our meals in the morning and at night.

I came on to say that we are not taking it now because of finances but my gut problems have certainly increased since not taking it.  I may have to go back to getting it to help my stomach.

Deflect can work in several different ways: when taken with foods, it will help mitigate any avoids eaten around that time; when taken on an empty stomach, it will help mitigate lectins eaten in the past. So if you are 18, how many years of eating "off your type" have you experienced? What sorts of "issues" do you have now, and what is your goal for the future (health-wise)?

Definitely continue taking it when you eat avoids, although as it's been said before, Deflect will not cancel out the damage of eating wrong.  It will help to lessen the damage.  So do try to eliminate eating any foods that will be continuing to undermine your good efforts.  :)

Well i would say that my gluten/dairy intake is below average (I'm of Chinese descent but live in Australia) but I do indulge... I was vegetarian/pescetarian for almost a year (even then my dairy/gluten intake was lower than average) but have just started trying to adhere to my SWAMI avoids to occasionally make their way in but its usually in condiments.. (ie soy sauce with my sushi...or a piece of carrot)

I'm also wondering how bad it is to eat avoids? I understand that they shouldn't be eaten regularly in the long term ...

My goal is obviously to be as healthy as I can and I'm also just looking to lose 1-2 kg / tone up and get fit. Other than that there aren't any major issues. I'm approx 171cm and 60-61kg if that helps at all.
Thanks in advance for any advice!  :)

Thanks! Would it be okay to take Deflect say, regularly for a month or so while adhering to my SWAMI as best I can and then continuing the SWAMI diet in the long term but only taking Deflect occasionally when consuming avoids?

I guess my main concern with Deflect is that if I take it regularly then stop taking it ... bad things will happen, even if i stick to my SWAMI haha ??)

Deflect works by attracting bad lectins from your digestive tract to its sugars so they can be carried out of your system, not allowing them to attach to blood type sugars within the body.

You won't see any negative behavior from taking Deflect or from stopping it except that any lectins being ingested or cleaned out of fatty tissue will not have these "sacrificial" sugars from the Deflect to attach to...

Since I am still cleaning garbage out of the body and healing, I continue to take some Deflect.

This depends on you.  Are you generally healthy or do you have health problems?  Are you a Secretor or Non-Secretor?  etc...

A generally healthy person will normally handle avoids with greater ease than someone who's body is already stressed by some illness or other damage.  This is why you see some people who can eat "anything" and not suffer any visible effect, while others eat the slightest avoid and have major effects.

Oh wow! I havent gotten my secretor status checked, I've been a bit hesitant because of the price tag but I get the impression that its quite beneficial?

I think I'm probably more the latter as I dont currently have any major health issues, but I'll continue to avoid my avoids as best as possible. Thanks!

I'm glad I found this thread.  I got some deflect & take it sparingly, but it seems to help.

I also notice that Martha(Dr. D's wife) takes it.  I am sure she is compliant, so if she takes it, it must be good to take for those who do adhere to the diet.

The next time I order from NAP, I'll try to get some deflect.  Too bad all these things cost more than many can afford. But, of course, keeping healthy is cheaper in the long run!!!!!!!!!!
