Quoted from ABJoeThere have been many threads just like this over the years here... and most of us have gone through this experience many times with family or friends.
The most you can do is introduce it and remain their friend, but don't continuously talk about it. When they bring it up, just ask if they are ready to do something about it besides complain...
Quoted from SquarePegYes, this happens. Giving up gluten was a big step for her. It's understandable that she won't want to limit herself anymore. And that's how she views BTD now -- more limitations.
But by fully adopting the BTD, she might find that she can have some of the gluten grains such as rye, barley, oats and spelt. No guarantees, though.
The gluten-beef connection is very real. The amino acid taurine is common to both, and her body knows it needs to get it from meat if not from wheat (or gluten). So her body is actually smarter than she is.

You can also get their address and just mail a money order.
Be patient with your friend, things just take time. :)
Quoted from ginnyTNMy massage therapist has a very long list of extremely serious health problems including cancer and autoimmune diseases. We have talked about the BTD and I asked her if she would please try it for just 4 weeks. I explained that she could radically change her health status in just that short time and she wasn't making a commitment - just an experiment. She seemed very interested so I sent her tons of detailed information and aides to get her started. Even sent recipes.
Also, almost all the lotions she uses contain tons of parabens and other cancer causing ingredients. I only allow her to use pure organic jojoba oil on me.
She is blood type B. She has decided she will NOT give up chicken, pinto beans, etc. etc. etc. She is now facing the possibly heart failure and death. She is only in her 50's.
I did what I could. I will be so very sad to lose this lovely person who also happens to be the best massage therapist in this entire area. But there is little hope for her when she will not change her eating habits.
Quoted from wayland B+I don't think most hospitals/doctors care to let people know what their blood type is. Usually they want to charge something around 70$ just to test for blood type. You can buy one from NAP for around 10$
I've bought 9 of them in the last couple of years. I've gotten all of them in about a week. (and I'm way down here in Texas)
If you do the home typing kit, be sure to watch one of the vids.
I wish I could be of more help, but your friend really needs to know his/her blood type to even start to narrow down which foods are causing problems.
Quoted from Averno
HF, your friend may feel overwhelmed by your enthusiasm, and questions her own investment. Give her some space to draw her own conclusions and maybe she'll find a little more courage to make the adjustment towards a more progressive health approach.
Quoted from GoldieFinally a non offencive correction.. well done.. I can see what you did and I understand.. well done!
