Hi,

I'm new to the forum, so if I've posted this in the wrong place I'm sorry  :)

Can anyone share their experiences of the effect of the O type diet on Bowel Polyps and Chrohns Disease?

My mother-in-law was recently diagnosed and is being advised to have whole bowel removed but is very reluctant. I am sure hearing from others in similar circumstances would help her.

Hi and welcome from an infrequent poster.
Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along later to advise you, but for myself any surgery would be a last resort, esp something so drastic as removing whole??? bowel.

IF mom has time .. like 2-3 month or so, then I would advise her to do several things..

A... follow the diet with all Beneficials for food.
B... use as many as possible Super Beneficials as medicine to repair the damage...
C ... use ORGANIC vegetables in juice form all day in place of water.
D.. eat fruit whole away from protein.

Learn to do do easy elimination by doing simple assist with a finger probe if needed, or simple LOW enemas to speed up elimination three times a day.  The importance here is to make sure she does not ever need to strain while eliminating, and allow easy flow and never any backup..    This is my advice for all sick people.

If mom is strong enough to do all this for even a week she will see improvements..

IF MOM has no time to wait, critical, in that she might rupture the colon then I would accept surgery, but still in preparation of it, do the above for now AND MOST definitely after surgery as well.

The removal may be needed if they think she has cancer, but if she has some time then the above would give her the strength she needs to get better.

The importance here is what will MOM be willing to do.. how much time does she spend on her future health -will tell her directly - how well she will do .. this is a time where she can either do the work needed now or feel miserable later..

Is mom over weight? is she feeling sick or did she not have symptoms until now?  My mom had rectal and colon cancer and had her intestines removed and lived well enough for near 10 years...  but it changed her life completely.  She past at 91.

SO WHAT I AM saying is the following.. Moms life will never be the same... but she can make all the difference if she is serious about IMPROVING THE CAUSE for her being ill.  Surgery will remove all kinds of things.. granted.. but the causes of creating these - impurities for lack of a better word, will still be there after surgery.  Illness does not happen without stagnation, and toxicities and lack of eliminations of toxins..

MOM Is not guilty - not responsible - for her ill health today.. but she holds in her hand how she will feel for he rest of her life.

This is so simple that you or many others will not 'believe' the possibilities, nor wish to follow through, nor want to take the time to do what is needed... and that is ok ..  I can accept that.. but from experience, my mom was not supposed to be alive very long at 81 and having had 3 different cancers.. but eventually taking her home after 3 month in the hospital,, and then feeding her differently gave her the chance at 10 more years in which she traveled all over the world and visited with friends and spent time having a life..

The biggest question that needs to be answered is not her Geno type.. leave that alone for now.. but find out what her blood type is immediately.. and in a week or so find out what secreter status she is..  and then LOOK AT the foods she ate all her life that CAUSED her to have issues today.

IF your mom can and will be honestly looking at what she ate she will SEE clearly where she just did not KNOW what she should eat./. BUT NOW WITH HER Blood Type revealed she will have all the tools to clean her insides out.. to nourish her self on a molecular level with enzymes and the like from green vegetables that will strengthen her over all her body and mind.

This is not on easy trip.. but one thing I can promise is that she will feel better very SOON..

some other things she might wish to do.. see a chiropractor weekly for adjustments.. see a acupuncturist once a week to stimulate her whole body energy and finally look at doing energy work specific to her needs.  ALL of these suggestions do NOT cause any Pain..nor any discomfort which is important..no need to add to discomfort or fear..   See more info on this at   :  http://ondamedworld.com/  (pm me if you wish to see my website and get more info on.. )
and look at this video to better evaluate what is possible.

All the best and much enthusiastic support with us here.... MOM  can do this and come out OK..  AND BY DOING all the above she will not only save her health but DRAMATICALLY improve the life of all her family .. all the best..  welcome .. you came to a good place..

Sometimes things get so bad that you need surgery... move forward towards better health by following the diet..

She is a non secretor if she has Crohns

Andrea,
I've never heard that before.  Crohn's is only in non-secretors?  That's not true of UC though, right?  If it is then I need another secretor test.

Fucosyltransferase 2 (FUT2) non-secretor status is associated with Crohn's disease.

Quoted Text
These findings strongly implicate this locus in CD susceptibility and highlight the role of the mucus layer in the development of CD.

Hi Jo _ and welcome, nice to see a fellow member from the UK. Get her to stick Stick closely to the diet, No wheat, no dairy and reduce sugar. get a secretor test to be sure and get SWAMI.

The D'adamo supplements are wonderfully therapeutic. I use intrinsa among others they are great. I wouldn't and don't use anyone Else's

good luck

Eliminate all wheat and reduce many grains.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you for your replies and to those who PM'd me.

My mother-in-law has her post-CT Scan appointment with the consultant on Thursday so we will know more then as to how bad the situation is, but in the meantime wheat and dairy have gone and she is working on everything else.

Many thanks

Jo

If after the CT the recommendation is still removal of the bowel, what I'd do is contact Dr. D's clinic and take a jet to an emergency consultation with Dr. D. That is if her powers would allow this.

Joe999, do you know what her blood type is?

I once found a blog and e-mailed a guy. Type O symptom free ENTIRELY of Crohns, he just eats no grains and extremely little starch. Everything else is vegetables and meat, some nuts, and some cheese (yeah I know, but whatever he is symptom free).

Hi all,

Well my mum-in-law had her appointment with the hospital consultant.  The CT Scan showed no cancer, which was such a relief, however he is still recommending the bowel is removed, he says it in a degenerative state and if not removed now come 12months it may be too late - but has not explained what he means by this.  He says she has had Crohns for about 10-15 years.

She is O group and has decided to refuse the operation and will use the blood type diet to try and improve the condition of her bowel.  

She has already given up the main Avoids for an O ie wheat, dairy etc and has taken away coffee and white wine and replaced them with green tea and the occasional red wine.  She is struggling a bit as this is such a culture shock for her,but she seems really determined and we are supporting her as much as we can.

My husband and I are trying to give her ideas of BTD meal options and showing her that she still has lots of choice.

Thanks to everyone for your help,it is very much appreciated.

Wish my mom had the same attitude, all she says is "I'm eating healthy!" and proceeds to stuff some more ham on her wheat sandwich.

Hope your MIL stays on the BTD Joe999 and that it really helps her improve!

I think the ham sandwich scenario is typical of the MIL diet over the past few decades and I'm sure has been a contributing factor to her current situation.  I too am really glad she is taking control of her situation through diet as I am pretty sure my own mum could never do it, despite having numerous health issues of her own.

That's great news Joe. I hope to see followup messages of your MIL's journey and discovery of improved health and the payoff to her determination.

eating ghee could be very healing.....and taking intrinsa. Maybe a phone consultation with Dr. D's clinic....

Look up Dr. Tom Greenfield.  He's in the UK and an associate of Dr. D's.
