According to Dr. Peter DÁdamo, author of Eat Right For Your Type, greater health can be achieved when you incorporate foods in your diet that favorably respond to your unique blood type. As naturopathic holistic health practitioners we, at Trinity Holistic Wellness, have been successfully recommending the blood type diet as outlined by Dr. DÁdamo to thousands of patients who continue to experience excellent clinical success by eating right for their type. We commonly see individuals suffering from a long list of ailments including digestive disturbances such as Colitis, Crohn’s, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, and/or lower bowel gas and bloating, who often experience relief relatively quickly when incorporating the Eat Right For Your Type diet along with personalized remedies including homeopathic, herbal and/or whole food remedies.
Additionally, not only do our “digestive” patients experience positive improvement with these dietary changes; we commonly see our other patients, most of whom suffer from health issues ranging from hormonal irregularities including Adrenal Fatigue, Hypothyroidism, female/male hormonal imbalances and Diabetes, cardiovascular health concerns, anxiety, depression, and pain often improve relatively quickly when they eat right for their type.
So why does following the blood type diet offer such positive results? In a nut shell, the foods we eat each contain their unique lectin, a protein found in the food. Your blood, depending on it’s type (O, A,B, AB) carries specific antigens. When specific lectins, found in foods that are incompatible with the antigens in your blood type, connect with your blood antigens a chemical reaction called agglutination occurs. This reaction, agglutination, causes a “stickiness” in the organ or body system where the reaction occurs. It is this stickiness that sets the stage for illness, discomfort and disease.
With the blood type diet we can choose foods that will either act in an almost medicinal manner in our body, thus helping to restore and maintain health, or we can choose foods that simply provide nourishment, or lastly we can choose foods that have a poisonous effect on our bodies. The diet is easy and clear to follow listing foods as “Highly Beneficial”, “Foods Allowed” and “Foods Not Allowed” per your blood type. How quickly you want to see improvement in your health is up to you. Incorporating the right foods in your body is critical to not only improving health, it is critical to maintaining optimal health once achieved and we, at Trinity Holistic Wellness, continue to achieve excellent clinical success with the Eat Right For Your Blood Type Diet.
Yours In Health,
