In Response To: Zinc and Cardiomyopathy (Brandan Thomas (O+))


You should use zinc. Your clinical situation supplants the long- range recommendations for your blood type, which is to avioid long-term zinc administration as its cummulative effects are suppressive on the immune system rather than augmentative. By the way, cardiomyopathy (an inflamation of the heart tissue) is also benefited by large doses of the amino acid l-taurine, which is the one amino acid found to be consistently low in the diets of vegans, but quite abundant in the type O diet. Taurine is the amino acid found in highest concentration in the "free amino acid pool' in heart tissue; apparently it is used extensively in rebuilding heart muscle. You may even want to supplement with 500mg additional to the diet.

Be well
