In Response To: nailing this down: T2 Avoids = T1 Neutrals? (JimB(A+))

Thanks for your questioning. It can appear confusing initially, but actually it is simpler than it seems.

T1 is always as a value. T2 can be considered 'important', 'values with minor impact' or even 'neutral' dependent on what your goals and capabilities are.

Let's think about the T system in terms of a software analogy:

T1 + T2-As Neutrals + Neutrals = Blood Type Program 'Lite Edition'. This is a health enhancement level.

T1 + T2-As Major Values + Neutrals = Blood Type Program 'Full Working Version.' This is the therapeutic level.

Variations, like the non-secretor and other subtypes can really only be done at the therapeutic level.

If you take a little bit of time, you can construct exactly what you need.

The idea is to allow an individualized tailoring of the program to a person's relative capabilities. For example, in my practice a common dilemma are college kids in dormitory/ cafeteria situations and elderly couples who travel and eat out in restaurants a lot. No control over minor ingredients. In the past they would not have had information sufficient to make any judgement call. Now they can be a bit flexible about narrow choices/trace ingredients so as to not have to choose between dropping the program or avoiding eating.

If anyone is still confused, my best advice is to re-read this post a few times.
