In my last session of classes, we talked about research done by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo around the incompatibility of blood and diet. This got my attention so I decided to do some research. Remember, I am not a doctor but I enjoy sharing information I come across that may be of interest to you. If this piques your interest, I recommend reading/skimming one of the books pictured above. You can get the book that discusses several blood types/diets or the book just geared toward your blood type.
Here’s what I found out:
*Our blood type is the key to our body’s entire immune system and is an essential factor in our health profile.
*Certain food types are preferred for your blood type, while others are just neutral or can pollute the body. Sometimes people can suffer from allergies, arthritis, autoimmune diseases and even cancer due to their body’s inability to adapt to things they’re eating. However, what impacts one blood type may not affect another.
*A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods you eat. Lectins are abundant and diverse proteins found in foods. They have agglutination (or clumping) properties that affect your blood. If you eat a food containing protein lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigens, the lectins can negatively target an organ or bodily system.
*Learning about your blood type diet could help restore the immune system, reset your metabolic clock and support the health of your microbiome. This can help with weight loss, improve a health condition or help you feel more energetic.
I’m going to make some changes based on what I learned and observe for a few weeks to see if I notice a difference. Remember, when trying something new, it’s extremely important to be aware of how your body is reacting. Pay attention, journal quick noticings and obviously check with your doctor if you have medical conditions (certain foods can interact with various medications).
