BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Blood Type O above normal testosterone levels
Posted by: 20522 (Guest), Wednesday, August 15, 2012, 1:00pm
I'm a Type O, Female, in my mid 20s suffering with Hirsutism (excess hair growth in places where men usually have hair growth) and have just had the results back from a Saliva test stating that my Testosterone is above normal levels.  Ive had an ultrasound scan too to check for PCOS but luckily none visible. I'm wondering what I can do to reduce the levels of tesosterone for my Type.
Any sugestions welcome!

Follow your type O diet-- get a SWAMI and a secretor test.

Healing takes time.
If you  can visit the University of Bridgeport  and see Dr. D'Adamo through the shift that would be great.

lower your carb intake
take away all avoids

the anti inflammatory action will help greatly

switch to beneficial carbs like sweet potato instead

use fem balance up at dpn

More information on SWAMI diets can be found at:

You are probably a hunter genotype (but could be wrong), if that helps you at all.  They have tendencies like you described.

Basically they need more intense exercise most days of the week, if not something almost every day.  Good luck!

Do you have a genotype diet book?

My (admittedly limited) understanding is that high testosterone is treated by increasing progesterone and estrogen, as there's no supplement that can directly lower testosterone. Getting your diet into balance can certainly help your body produce the right hormones in the right proportions, but sometimes diet alone isn't enough; some conditions require supplementation to heal.

Your best bet is to get a professional SWAMI from somebody who can also prescribe appropriate supplements to get your body back into balance. If there are no SWAMI practitioners near you, the next best thing is to get a SWAMI Xpress (the kind you do yourself from your home computer) and also meet with a local practitioner who can work with you on figuring out appropriate supplements. Conventional medicine (which would mean synthetic hormones in  this case) shouldn't be your first choice of treatment IMO; seek out a naturopath or another "alternative health practitioner" to see what you can do with supplements, as that approach is more likely to heal the underlying imbalance rather than masking it.

Not the candy licorice but the root.

Licorice root, not so good for those with high blood pressure is it? Have I got it right?

Rigorous exercise has done me wonders. I think it is even more beneficial than my food, lol.

No. DGL de-glycyrrhizinated licorice is better for people with high blood pressure.
