Blood Type B Diet & Food List

Blood Type B Diet & Food List

July 14, 2013: A Note By Dr. Mike

Food reactions are hidden as often as they are obvious.  Obvious reactions would include throat swelling, itching especially along the outsides of the arms, sneezing, and watery eyes.  But there are other reactions such as nasal congestion, skin irritation/redness, fatigue/yawning, tongue/throat scratchiness/irritation, weight gain, etc. that a person often won’t correlate with food consumption.

It is expected for any one or several of the above-mentioned symptoms to occur within minutes or hours of consuming a food found on your AVOID list.  If you experience any of the above symptoms after eating a food that is found on your NEUTRAL or BENEFICIAL list then you should consider having your adrenal hormones tested through the saliva. A reaction to one of these foods indicates that your adrenal glands are recognizing that food as a foreign invader and mounting an inflammatory/immune response against the food!

This is not good.  If the body is attacking foods that it shouldn’t be then your chances of acquiring an auto-immune disease in the future are high.  In auto-immune conditions the body attacks it’s own cells, thinking they too are a foreign invader.  If your body is already recognizing harmless or even beneficial foods as foreign invaders then the auto-immune process has likely begun on a small- or large-scale.

 

Blood Type B History

Type Bs are usually able to resist many of the diseases common to modern life, such as heart disease and cancer.  Their systems seem to be omre prone to unique immune system disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.  Type Bs were the quintessential hunter-gatherers, and their diet represents the best of the animal and vegetable kingdoms.

Weight Loss

Eating some of the following foods will result in fatigue, fluid retention, and hypoglycemia.  In his book, Eat Right for Your Blood Type, Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo says “My patients with hypoglycemia often ask me if they should follow the standard advice of eating several small meals a day in order to keep their blood sugar levels from dropping.  I discourage this practice.  I find hat the major problem is now when they eat, but what they eat.”
