BTD Forums  /  Testimonials  /  Type O - Amazing Healing Results
Posted by: Robyn Mc, Sunday, November 1, 2009, 10:08pm
Background:  47 year old female--blood type o. 5'4" 117 lbs.  Exercise fairly regularly, but lately not so much due to shoulder injury and generalized body pain.  Running and workouts usually help, but took a break for a few weeks.  Alternative & supposedly healthy diet for past 25 years or so--even tried vegetarian diet with exception of seafood for seven years.  Began to experience irritable bowel and mystery pain throughout body for past 12 years on and off.  Started with carpel tunnel and progressed to pain throughout whole body.  Joint pain, muscle pain, shooting pains, you name it.  

Standard Medical Practice Prescription:  Pain meds, muscle relaxants, anti-depressants, providing short-term, temporary relief, but leading to worse problems (no surprises there, but when you are desperate, you'll try almost anything).  Hated the idea of antidepressants, and resisted, but would eventually cave back in when pain levels became intolerable.  Very sensitive to drugs--so all were very low dose, but still experienced rotten side effects.  

My Prescription:  Weaned myself off anti-depressants AGAINST doctor recommendations.  Supplemented with 5HTP 50-100 miligrams at night to help me sleep along with amino acids.  Got me off the anti-depressants and feeling better, but pain never really left and began to worsen after three or four months.

Diet:  I've eaten whole grains, lots of veggies (never liked fruit a whole lot, but did try fruit fasting and fruit only days for cleansing purposes) limited meat (until a few years ago), supplemented with flax seed, cod-liver oil, turmeric, and couldn't figure out why I was still in pain, according to somewhat mainstream/healthy diet wisdom.  

Finally:  Decided to try BTD, again--discovered it a few years back and started on it--but eventually fell back into old eating habits.  Lately, been having food cravings and eating lots of grains...pain starting getting really bad so I decided to revisit BTD.  Had been gradually eating avoids more and more without really realizing (well, it was in back of mind, but chose to ignore it).  

Results:  First 24-hours of eating nothing but grass fed beef, onions, spinach and ezekial bread/butter, pumpkin seeds and ground flax seed(it's what I had in the house at the moment) pain subsided significantly.  By day three I was feeling awesome and kept having "aha, I'm not in pain moments" throughout my day.  Once I got to the store, I stocked up on artichokes, pineapple/cherry juice, etc., grass fed beef, etc...felt great.  Oh, dropped a couple pounds without working out, to-boot!  

After a week of pain free and feeling great (my results were almost immediate) I decided to try a food experiment.  Went to eat Mexican food lunch with husband.  Beef taco, cheese enchilada, chips, rice beans and guess what?  Within three hours pain started to return and had bad bloating and gas pains throughout evening.  Been eating healing foods since and pain is almost gone again.  

Suppose it could be all in my head placebo effect--but by golly I haven't been this pain free in years!  :D  On a sad note, I LOVED kimchi and saurkraut and had planned to start making my own--also love avocados, but it's just not worth the pain. I'll be looking for alternative easy snack foods...right now I'm limited to toasted ezekial muffins with raw almond butter and sliced apples, soaked and slow roasted pumpkin seeds (love those) for easy snacks. Grass-fed beef, lamb, fish, broccoli, artichokes, greens are now my staples along with pre-soaked brown rice...

If anyone out there has suggestions for easy O things to keep on hand--I would appreciate pointers.  I'm really trying to stay away from all avoids right now...it does seem that now that I've avoided them, once I try them again, by body seriously rebels.  

The diet is awesome--hard to avoid grains in our culture, but I have renewed my faith in the diet and plan to make a serious effort to mostly eliminate them from my life.  

Thanks to Dr. D for providing the info. and comprehensive site.  I've spent the morning typing up my own list of beneficials/avoids for both me and my type A husband.

Question:  Has anyone out there found body lotion/products for type o's that don't have irritating factors? I've been having an itchy skin problem (mostly upper body) along with scalp.  Been using purified water with lavender oil, almond and a drop of olive oil--but nothing seems to help and all seems to irritate.  I did get a lot of sun over the summer so my skin may just be going through a fall adjustment/rebellion, but if anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate!  The itching started prior to the diet change...I don't think it's any kind of detox thing--no rashes or anything--just mild itching/burning sensation.

Congrats on feeling better!!! Isn't it great to be pain free?  I use virgin coconut oil for facial and all other skin care. I have developed allergies to so many skin care products. At the store on this site they also have some skin care products, many people seem to like them. Alas, I was allergic to these too.

Beef jerkey makes a good snack as well as celery sticks with nut butter or hummus. I make a batch of soup or two a week and a small bowl or mug also makes a good, compliant and filling snack. I had onion soup for breakfast today.  I also keep tuna salad or egg salad made with complaint ingredients, good on a rice cake. ;D

gosh, thanks for all the notes--fast!  

Coconut Oil is a no-no for o's and I've discovered it does make my skin itch and peel.  Can't find a beef jerky locally that isn't loaded with bad stuff--I'll have to stock up and order on-line--love that stuff!  

Again, thanks for the suggestions--keep 'em coming!

I accidentally overcooked thin strips of beef on a panini grill/sandwhich maker & they were great as beef jerky... ;) Or you could just cook them & dry them further using a dehydrator... :) (There's a whole other thread on use of a dehydrator for snacks etc)

Thanks to all--not sure how this all works, yet--but added the BT shield, as suggested.  Thanks, Lola!  In answer to namelessfem (I think), I am an Irish-American Indian/Caucasian Heinz 57) living in the Sacramento Area of California--not Korean, but darnit, i loved that kimchi!  :D  So sad to give it up, but pain-free is preferable.  Once I get back on track, I may try an occasional dose and see how I do with it.  

I've been checking out the recipe section for the beef jerky--I'll be trying that this week!

Robydoo,

It looks like from your profile that you don't know your secretor status yet, correct me if i'm wrong?.

Anyways, Non-secretors can have avocados.  If you know for sure you get pain from having avocados than that may indicate your a secretor and i'd definitely stay away from them.

Hi Robydoo and Mickey,
Two fellow Californians!  I just wanted to say that I have had a similar skin itching thing lately, and I seem to associate it with either turmeric, chili powder, or heavy spices.  No green spices cause it, but I had this wonderful soup of butternut squash and apples that had a tbsp of a spice blend in it.  The spices were kind of peppery, chili powder heavy.  The soup was good, but both nights that I had some, I was extra itchy.  I believe those spices ( as cayenne also and curries) seem to make me itch.  I also think it may be a leaky gut thing.  I am trying to heal mine after drinking strong coffee every morning for about 30 years....and the occasional glasses of wine probably didn't help my gut either.  
I wonder sometimes if it's the water coming out of the shower, whether getting a filter for the showerhead would help with the itching.  I can't really afford one right now, but that's the next thing I want to try for the itching.

Mickey,

You are right--don't know my secreter status, yet--once I've been on the diet for awhile, I'll try avacados and see how it makes me feel.  So far, if I eat something wrong for me--I pretty much know it within a few hours.

Thanks for the thought!

Paula, just saw your post!  I have been taking lots of turmeric for muscle pain, I also have cayenne in my pumpkin seeds.  Thought those were supposed to be good for type o's?  My itch also seems heat related--left ear itches as the sun hits it when driving.  My husband and I did get lots of sun over the summer--he's had something going on with his arm and a rash--we are beginning to wonder if there isn't something in the lake where we houseboat.  Although, I think my itchy ear/scalp started prior to that--it's just much worse now.  Like you, I've even wondered if it's the water coming out of the tap--perhaps an allergy to chlorine.  The itch as been expanding to arms, chest and back of neck. No rash--just burning, itching.  I'll try cutting out the turmeric today, to see if that helps.  I have been taking it off and on over the past year--so it could be a factor.  

Have even tried putting a few drops of olive oil in spray bottle with purified water and a few drops of lavender and tea tree oil--no go.  All seems to irritate.  While I am loathe to go to a regular MD, I have an appointment with my PC tomorrow to see if she has any suggestions.  Thanks for the thoughts...

Turmeric and cayenne are not avoids per se, I and my
Oneg son both seem to get itchy from them. It feels like a niacin
flush but lasts much longer for me.

Hi Roby,
Welcome & if you can eat nuts have that.  I like to make my own mixed, toast some raw walnuts on low heat in the toaster oven for 20min. Like to add dry roasted almonds or toast raw ones w/ the walnuts & mac nuts w/ sea salt.

Hi Robydoo,  I hope this helps.  I had severe itching, but when SWAMI removed all nuts from my diet about 99% of my itching went away!!  Good luck to you.

You might stop doing this after a while.   I tried about 10 or 20 times before concluding that Dr D definitely, certainly, absolutely knows what he's talking about...

We are happy that you found relief.  Enjoy a little pain-free detox until you are ready to look at the Secretor test!    :)

Paula, thanks for the note on the turmeric.  Your second note mentioned having a feeling like a niacin flush and I went, "YES"!  That's been happening to me, too--they were mild and I was thinking precursor to hot flash...I've been off the turmeric for 24 and the massive itching has stopped.  I also quit the cayenne in my pumpkin seeds...I made a new batch.  I'm hoping that isn't a problem because I LOVE the hot stuff.  

Possum, hoping I don't have to give up nuts as they are my favorite snack as an O BT.  I love my pumpkin seeds (beneficial) and sometimes macadamia nuts.  Maybe this weekend I will get time to try making some beef jerky.  The itching is a more recent occurrence and does seem to have stopped with the elimination of the turmeric caplets I had been taking for inflammation.  Which is going away, anyway, with the diet.  

Still having and itchy left ear/and toe--but that's been ongoing for months--doctor can't find anything and we think it may just be a weird hormonal/allergy/heat irritation thing.  The main thing is the massive upper-body/scalp itch seems to have stopped.  

Thanks to you all for your helpful replies!

   Take a look into liver cleansing etc. for the itching.  I had it majorly before I got into doing my liver cleanses. Not to say you have to do cleanses, but find out what makes the liver happy & what doesn't and incorporate your compliant foods with it.   In the process of looking up information I found that itching is a symptom of the liver not being happy.  Turmeric was on the list of good things for it, but maybe you have to go a little slower on the doses to gently ease the liver along.  I know my itching only comes back now when my livers not happy.  May not be the cause to your problem, but it's worth looking into.  Our liver affects so much of our health.  Things we wouldn't even expect.   Just my 2 cents worth.

Thanks, Gals...I would have thought my liver was cleansed as I've eaten a pretty healthy diet (with the exception of dairy/grains) over the past several years. But there could be something toxic in there lurking...I'll look into that and in the meantime, bump up my consumption of dandelion root tea--supposed to have liver-cleansing properties...the flushing has mostly stopped, but the left ear is still driving me nuts!

I've had that itching ear from time to time.  At one point, I had a toe that itched also!  :-)  I finally concluded that it was my body reestablishing its' equilibrium, and what that all means, I still don't know.  

I tried treating it with soothing oils, anti-fungal oils, antiseptics . . the only topical thing that really seems to help is Emu oil, which I have come to love.  And I was going to suggest that for your other skin issues also.  It is mild, non-irritating and akin to our own natural skin oils.  It is anti inflammatory.  I have healed pre cancerous skin spots many times by using it consistently.

And, as far as lotions, Dr. D's lotions are the hands-down best I've ever used.  They really help to eliminate wrinkles and dry patches and make the skin look radiant.  But I still supplement with a little Emu oil.

Victoria,

OMG, OMG!  I have an itchy toe, too--again, left side...went to doc last week and it's not a skin thing at all--they gave me awful cream anyway, just in case.  I've been spraying my skin with a mix of purified water, almond, olive, lavender and rose oil.  Only a tiny, tiny bit of each in a spritzer filled with mostly water. This has become my face moisturizer.  I mist it on before a dab of cover up (at 47 there are many spots to cover) and that's my make-up.  It has made my skin wonderful and is far cheaper than all the expensive creams I've tried and wasted.  My skin is fairly oily for 47--I'm thinking this mostly water mister thing will help it regain balance.  Someone else suggested mixing apple-cider vinegar with purified water.  She mixes half-half, which I felt was too strong...I have been doing that periodically on my face as a toner, with a drop of lavender and rose oil in the whole mix, and it makes my skin so soft!  Not in love with the ACV smell, but it fades.  Also keep a mister with water, oils in the shower, too.  It's all mostly water, but it really seems to make my skin nice. I shall have to try the emu oil the next time I get to the market--does it mix well with water and other things?  Been using olive oil on the hands and rinsing off excess with warm water.  Also was looking for something for a couple of pre-cancerous spots I have on my face.  They are too small for the doctor to do anything about, but I was wondering about that and I'm so glad you mentioned it!  Thanks!  ;D  I agree with you on the itchy thing--it's either a re-balancing thing or an allergy thing, not truly a skin thing at all.

I've noticed that most soaps can irritate my skin and cause rashes if used on a daily basis. Try using soaps that are all natural and contain as few ingredients as possible. I have been using Kiss My Face for years (Ingredients: Saponified Olive Oil, Water, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), Sodium Chloride, Fragrance). My skin looks and feels great, if I do say so myself ;). Years ago I had a persistent rash on my feet for which I was prescribed hydrocortizone cream. A few weeks after I started using KMF (on the BTD) my rash began to heal, and I no longer have the rash.

I use KMF to clean my body, face, and hair. I also apply a thin layer after showering as a moisturizer for my body and face, and even my hair as a leave-in conditioner! It's a great all-around soap, shampoo and moisturizer. No other products needed, except maybe some essential oils for occasional blemishes. It's awesome stuff.

Any one else find some good soaps out there? Any comments on Kiss My Face soaps?

Welcome, de_nogent!  I love the Genoma Skin care line--it's pricey, but not any more so than going to the Clinique or like counter in a dept. store.  They do not have any kind of body wash or body lotion...I don't want to use those on anything but my face because that would get real expensive really fast.  

The Kiss My Face--are you using the liquid facial soap, specifically?  And, it's also a moisturizer?  Do, please tell which one you use exactly.  I think I can get that for reasonable price at my local Vitamin Shoppe or T-Joe's.

I just use the regular KMF lavender bar soap for everything. I've also used the green tea version which is good. Some of the other KMF products have some avoid ingredients, but I haven't researched them recently. The bar soap works very well for me; it's the only product that I use on my skin (besides sweet almond oil and essential oils).

KMF is marketed as a moisturizing soap, but not specifically as a leave-on skin moisturizer. However, I figure that the ingredients are all natural, olive oil and lavender/green tea is great for your skin, so it couldn't hurt. It doesn't feel greasy at all; you won't know it's there. It's worth a shot. Good luck!

Thanks, I'll have to give it a try...I love lavender and use the oil around the house for a variety of things, including in spritzers mixed with tea tree oil for mosquito repellent, in the bath...it's great stuff!  

The idea of using bar soap as a moisturizer sounds a little interesting...how do you do that?  Just lather it on and leave it?  i'm guessing it's not lathery like regular soap, given the ingredients.

Good question. KMF is quite different from other soaps you may be used to. It's a deep olive green and semi-transparent. When you wet the soap it becomes kind of slimy, but it does produce a very light and foamy lather. There are no dyes or additives, so it's basically just like putting olive oil on your skin. Before leaving the shower I apply a thin layer to my body, face and run it through my hair, then towel dry. Don't worry about any remaining bubbles, they won't cause water marks or streaks  ;). The soap dries perfectly clear without any noticeable residue. I wouldn't be surprised if our skin pores just ate it up as soon as it hit them.

Note: Kiss My Face soap should be kept high and dry. Use a soap dish that allows the soap to drain, otherwise it will deteriorate very quickly and turn into a big slimy mess.

I found a "silicone soap saver" at organize.com. $9 after shipping. Looks like it will work.

Wanted to let you know I've been using the KMF lavender soap and I LUV it--in my hair, conditioner, moisturizer--wonderful stuff!  I actually towel dry, then wet my hands and make a little moisturizing lather for hair, arms, legs...it dries really fast and my skin is super soft AND it stays moisturized.  

Mine is brown, though?  I checked the ingredients and they are as you said, olive oil, lavender, fragrance, sodium chloride...hmmmmm.  Maybe you were talking about the green-tea version.

Anyway...thanks for recommending!

Robyn,

That's great to hear! I'm happy to help.

I'm sure there are variations in color with the soaps. KMF is kind of greenish/brownish in color.

Hi Robyn,

Congratulations on your tremendous success!

As another Type O Non-Secretor also with leaky gut syndrome, I can tell you I also have bouts of rashes and itching--on my scalp and thighs.  I have discovered that when I eat corn products (including corn starch, maltodextrin, corn syrup, citric acid, sorbic acid, dextrose, etc.), it leaks into my bloodstream and my immune system responds--the symptoms don't kick in until 2 days after eating the corn products and they last for 3-4 days--they include these rashes and itching, fibromyalgia, muscle pain in most muscle groups between my chin and knees, and tendonitis in my larger joins (shoulders and legs).  Staying away from corn and all the corn derivatives completely eliminates these symptoms.

Also, I noticed that you said that you have apples pretty regularly.  They are actually an Avoid for Type O Non-secretors, so I wanted to point that out to you.  They might be causing some discomfort that you could easily avoid.

Good luck!
