Blood Type Diet FAQ

An Avoid herb or supplement is recommended (by another source) for my (diagnosed) medical condition.

This will require some discernment on your part.

An herb is generally considered an avoid for a blood type due to particular negative metabolic reactions that may be induced by the herb or indirectly induced as a side effect. If possible, attempt to locate a similarly functioning herb with similar benefits.

Generally, a supplement is considered an avoid because it is bountiful in a well rounded, fresh food based diet for your blood type. Additional supplementation could be considered toxic. However, if you have a diagnosed deficiency of the substance, or a medical condition shown to benefit by supplementation, then the supplement may be taken. It is always wise to consult a nutritionally knowledgeable person who can monitor your health in this situation.
