In Response To: Body Types, Diet theories (Mary Kane, RD)
The interesting thing about Ayurveda, body types, etc. is that they represent an attempt by ancient and traditional healers to "type" their patient. This resulted from the fact that in ancient times, a physician was more valued for his prognostic skills, versus his diagnostic skills. If course, all the other systems use largely subjective devices (body shape, etc.). The beauty of using ABO is that you can take the ancient wisdom, and apply it to the western bio-medical model. All A's should be A whether typed in my office, or Greenwich Hospital, etc. Thus we can then plow through the literature, assured that any reference to type A should apply.
You have a sense of humor, a sometimes rare quality in an RD. And obviously a deep love of humanity. Congratulations.
