The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 8
A few questions for Dr. D
Posted By: Tony (A)
Since going on the ER4YT diet after becoming ill a year and a half ago, I seem to be developing a lot of food allergies and sensitivities to a lot of the main Type A foods (soy, fruit, grains, nuts, seeds, etc), though I can't be sure if they are allergies or just some other symptom from my illness. Many times, especially when I'm very hungry, as soon as I take a first bite of something, I get weak, and a very dazed and pressured feeling in my head. This may pass, or last for hours.
Going on the theory that I may be suffering from food intolerances or allergies (causing this and many other symptoms), I looked back into your acrchives and read about Quercitin and Milk Thistle. I started on the quercitin about a month ago. But since I got ill, my stomach is so sensitive that I can't take anything on an empty stomach. I also can't seem to get pills down anymore. They all get stuck in my esophagus. So I've been taking querciting capsules, opening them, and mixing them with my food. Am I going to get any benefit from that? Are there any other options, like a tablet or a liquid? I had found and tried one tablet, but it contained a lot of citrus bioflavanoids (citrus makes me get hot and itchy all over) and non-ester vitamin C (my stomach can't handle that).
As for Milk Thistle, what would be the dosage on that? I would have the same pill taking and empty stomach problems as with quercitin, so I hope you take that into account. I did start drinking the tea, but I doubt I would be getting a high enough dosage that way. If I can, let me know how much to drink. That doesn't seem to bother my stomach.
Thanks for the help.
