Blood Typing

Knowing the blood type can lead you to better a understanding of the above picture. The basic reason is that one's blood type determines compatibility or incompatibility with certain foods. Certain foods, and food groups act like poisons to certain blood types. What can be a medicine for one person, can be a poison for another. How is this possible? Because of genetics.

A chemical reaction takes place between your blood and the food you eat. This reaction is part of your inherited blueprint. The key to all of this is lectin chemistry. Different blood types are incompatible with the lectins (proteins) of certain food groups.

If you eat offending food lectins for your blood type, they not only agglutinate your red blood cells in your bloodstream (as seen in live blood analysis) but also clump cells in the intestine leading to immune system activation which then results in symptoms like bloating, wind, pain and discomfort. So for a person with digestive system problems, looking at red cells in live blood may not be the prime focus of where the problem lies, but it is still an excellent tool by which we can determine what is happening to similar cells in the digestive system.

We have incorporated blood type nutritional concepts into our dietary planning when putting dietary plans together for individuals as for 10years now we have seen how effective and successful these concepts have been in helping to resolve a wide range of illnesses.
Whether you have a constantly bloated gut, body fat that won’t budge or chronic recurrent infections, this food as medicine program when implemented correctly will potentiate the effect of any natural medicines you are using to resolve your  health problem.

Your energy levels can be improved markedly by improving your intestine’s abililty to utilize the protein you eat at every meal. That’s right, it’s the protein you eat that provides sustained energy, not the sugar. The blood type diet formula is a very effective strategy that improves protein assimilation into the body . When we merge blood type theory with nutritional principles from the body ecology diet, chineese medicine and a european dietary model (from the german company sanum-kehlbeck) we have developed some very effective and successful dietary-nutritional programs for our clientele.

Type O blood is the oldest blood and shows a connection to the hunter-gatherer cultures. This blood type is strongly aligned with high protein consumption from animal foods like sheep & goat products, fish, poultry and red meat. Individuals with type O blood generally produce higher stomach acids. This is typically the group that experiences more incidence of gastric ulcer disease than the other groups. Type O's handle animal protein well but grains like whole wheat, and dairy products are not so good. Type O groups comprise about 46% of the Australian population.

Blood group A was the next to evolve and merged with the development of agricultural practices. Blood group A is primarily associated with vegetarian food sources and individuals in that group secrete smaller amounts of stomach acid. Protein requirements are not any less than a group O person but the source is different. Type A's do poorly with the typical meat and potato fare and are predisposed to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Soy proteins, fish, sheep & goat products, legumes, grains, and vegetables are very important for type A's as well as food that is fresh, pure and organic. Group A comprises 42% of the American population. Then there is type B and AB.
