Lectins are proteins found in
common foods, and many of them are blood type specific. Lectins agglutinate red blood cells, cause damage to the lining
of your intestines and settle into your joints causing inflamation.
By finding out what foods
you should avoid and what foods you should emphasize, you may start on a path of wellness that you thought was impossible!
The process by which cells are made to adhere to one another, or in other words "clump up".
"Flocculates serum or precipitates serum proteins."
When searching the TypeBase 4 food values, you will see this phrase.
The easiest way to explain it is to say that your body has an "Immune
response" to that particular Lectin.
means flaking and clumping together. Normally this
happens when a foreign Antigen is destroyed by an Antibody like when you get sick and
your body fights off a virus or bacterial infection.These Lectins specific to
your Blood Type can cause this type of response.

It's common knowledge that as we age, the neurons in our brains may not function
as well, or as quickly as they did in our youth. Why? Quite simply, the neurons that we started out with as babies are the
same neurons that we are still using at 40, 50, 60 and beyond! Although the neurons continue to function, many of their component
parts, such as lipids and cellular proteins, are replaced as needed to prevent the accumulation of damage.
maximize the functional capacity of existing nerves, Dr. D'Adamo formulated Trehalose Complex - a blend of Trehalose, a natural
sugar, that clinical trials suggest may have a positive effect in promoting brain health, D-Ribose, an essential compound
in energy metabolism and the structural backbone of DNA and RNA, and modified citrus pectin, a short chain pectin that improves
the connections and conductivity between nerves.
Trehalose Complex acts on multiple levels:
- May protect
nerves from the destructive forces of aging and environmental toxicity.
- Stimulates the activity of your own neural
- Energizes your existing nerves to maximize their functional capacity.
- May improve the activity
of the brain and nervous system.
- Helps cells to stay hydrated
- Helps cells to decide to fix themselves

What are the health benefits of consuming friendly bacteria (Probiotics)?
Friendly bacteria restore intestinal balance, which results in:
more “regular” and having easier bowel movements
- a stronger Immune system
- a healthy gut that aids in the production of Anti T (cancer) cells
- improved resistance
against bacteria like E.Coli, Salmonella, and H. Pylori
Your blood type antigens are actually prominent in your digestive tract and many of the bacteria
in your digestive tract actually use your blood type as a preferred food supply. In fact, blood group
specificity is common among intestinal bacteria with almost 1/2 of strains tested showing some blood type A, B, or O specificity.
It has been estimated that someone with blood type B will have up to 50,000X more of some strains of friendly bacteria
than either blood type A or O individuals.
Some strains of beneficial bacteria actually can
have lectin-like hemagglutinin activity directed against your blood type (Yogurts like Activia, Danactive, etc), so avoiding
those is a good idea

The natural way to breathe is
called Diaphragmatic Breathing (stomach
breathing). We automatically breathe this way when we are born. Diaphragmatic breathing uses the diaphragm muscle (a strong
dome shaped muscle) located under our ribs and above our stomach. When we breathe in, we push the muscle down, and our stomach
moves forward. When we breathe out, the diaphragmatic muscle moves back to resting position and our tummy moves back in. There
is little or no upper chest movement.
As we grow older
many of us change our pattern of breathing and start breathing through our chest. This can be the result of a
number of factors such as the pressure to have a flat stomach, a “manly” puffed out chest, poor posture, and of
course anxiety. Many symptoms can arise from improper chest breathing like sore ribs, tight neck, shoulder and back muscles.
is intended to help you use the diaphragm correctly while breathing to:
- Strengthen the diaphragm
- Use less effort and energy to breathe
- Take stress off of the Trapezium muscles caused from chest breathing - especially
if you are an athelete
- Help you relax before you go to sleep or any time
of the day
Diaphragmatic breathing technique
When you get into bed, lie down on your back and get comfortable. Place one hand on
your upper chest and the other just below your rib cage. This will allow you to feel your diaphragm move as you
breathe. Breathe in slowly (through your nose) and make your stomach move out
against your hand. The hand on your chest should remain as still as possible.
When breathing out use your stomach
muscles to bring your stomach slowly back down. The hand on your upper chest must remain as still as possible.
Repeat (usually until you fall asleep.)
When you first learn the diaphragmatic breathing technique,
you may notice a “shaky” feeling coming from your stomach area when breathing in. This is normal.
Your body is re-learning to breathe and the muscles and diaphragm need to get stronger. A nice side affect
is that by concentrating on the diaphragmatic breathing technique, you just might fall asleep faster.

Fighting and preventing the Flu with Proberry
Elderberry and the "Flu" Elderberry does inhibit replication of all strains of human influenza
(both A and B) viruses tested.
In an actual
placebo-controlled, double blind study (the scientific gold-standard) an extract of elderberry fruit has been shown to be
effective for treating influenza B. What this research showed was that people using the elderberry extract got better
much quicker (more than 70% were better after 2 days and over 90% of people completely resolved the infection within 3 days).
contrast, the people given a placebo often needed as much as 6 days to feel well. Researchers
found two reasons why Elderberry works:
People taking the elderberry were able to produce higher anti-haemagglutination titers to influenza B (meaning their
immune system essentially performed better and they now have a higher level of recognition should this "flu" return).
And, elderberry inhibits neuraminidase.
(Viral neuraminidase is an enzyme on the surface of influenza viruses that enables the virus to be released from the
host cell so it can spread.)
You can fight
the Flu with Proberry liquid or Proberry caps that contains Elderberry.
You probably don’t look at a chocolate bar and think, “health
food!” But maybe you should. Research shows that dark chocolate has a high flavonoid content. Flavonoids, also known
as bioflavonoids, are water soluble plant pigments that have been researched for their antioxidant effects. While they are
not considered essential nutrients, flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue, and
act as natural anti-inflammatories and anti-histamines.
Antioxidants protect the body from aging caused by free
radicals, which can cause damage that leads to heart disease. Dark chocolate contains a large number of antioxidants (nearly
8 times the number found in strawberries). Flavonoids also help relax blood pressure through the production of nitric oxide,
and balance certain hormones in the body. You may have heard of the health benefits of dark chocolate in particular. There
are a number of recent studies which have been conducted to test the effects dark chocolate has on cardiovascular health.
The research shows that dark chocolate:
- Lowers bad
LDL cholesterol and increases good HDL cholesterol
prevent the oxidation of cholesterol related to plaque buildup on blood vessel walls
- Decrease platelet aggregation (their stickiness)
C-reactive protein - a blood inflammatory marker
high blood pressure by supporting the relaxation of blood vessels
- Due to its ability to support health blood pressure, it is also studied for its use in treating and preventing glaucoma
- Pancreas function and Insulin sensitivity was also
found to be improved by consuming just as little 88g of dark chocolate per day for 2 weeks
Organic Dark Chocolate -72% cocoa
Organic Dark Chocolate with Ginger - 70% cocoa
Organic Dark Chocolate with Green Tea - 68% cocoa

BLOOD TYPE O AND ARTHRITISAlthough research documenting the positive effects
of GLUCOSAMINE sulphate in treating arthritis are now beginning to appear with regularity, it is still far from a perfect
therapy. People taking glucosamine alone get some form of symptomatic relief, though not much actual
improvement in the joints themselves.
One aspect of glucosamine's recognized actions goes largely unnoticed, but
is important with regard to the blood type diet theory. There is strong evidence, that glucosamine binds many food lectins,
including WGA or wheat germ agglutinin. One of several well-designed studies documenting this also showed definite systemic
uptake of wheat lectin, where it deposited on the walls of the blood vessels and lymph nodes.
Interestingly, the percentage goes DOWN in individuals who take
CHONDROITIN sulphate in addition to glucosamine, as part of a regimen advocated in the bestseller "The Arthritis Cure."
How could this be? One simple explanation is that chondroitin sulphate is actually comprised of long linked
chains of the sugar acetylated galactosamine.
You might remember that galactosamine is also the blood type
Thus, upon hydrolysis (acid breakdown) in the stomach, chondroitin becomes free A-antigen.
This would not be much of a problem in type A or AB, who recognize the A antigen as "self."
could be a major problem in types O and B, who recognize the A antigen as "non-self."
taking chondroitin sulphate if you are either O or B is the chemical equivalent of giving yourself
a bad blood transfusion.
What is secretor status?
You are probably
familiar with the concept that your ABO blood type is controlled by your genetics.
In a simplified sense, a secretor is defined as a person who secretes their blood type antigens into body fluids and secretions
like the saliva in your mouth, the mucus in your digestive tract and respiratory cavities, sweat, etc.
Non-Secretors: A non-secretor on the other hand puts
little to none of their blood type into these same fluids.

How The Blood Type Diet Works: The Basics
Genuine Weight Loss Goes Deeper
Over several decades, researchers have identified over 1,000 common foods that contain powerful proteins
called lectins. Here’s the key: These food lectins become active and important for you when they interact with your
For example, after consuming any number of foods containing wheat,
both blood types O and A can experience bloating and other digestive problems. This may be more than a simple “food
intolerance.” The walls of the stomach and intestines are lined with sensitive receptors that interact with, and respond
to, the lectin in wheat. At first, you may only experience that wheat lectin interaction as a mild digestive problem, or a
dull, listless feeling after consuming foods not right for you.
Over time, the
result is a steadily deteriorating state of health, loss of energy and weight gain.
good news is, by removing these targeted foods and replacing them with foods more suitable for your blood type, you begin
to experience the benefits of a leaner, cleaner, more energetic body.
Why That “Weight Loss”
Shake is Actually Packing it On
Over 80% of us Can't Tolerate Most Weight Loss Products
so-called weight-control shakes are only about limiting calorie intake without taking into consideration your unique biochemical
needs. Do you wonder why so many people lose weight, only to gain it back--and then some? Or why many people may lose weight
in the face and neck, but remain persistently overweight around the middle? Improper and unhealthy weight loss leads to unbalanced
and unhealthy weight distribution.
Genuine weight loss and genuine, lasting health
comes from considering how your body interacts with the foods and beverages you consume. Dr. D’Adamo’s pioneering
and on-going research confirms that your blood type is the single most important determinant in how your body interacts with
the foods you eat and whether those foods cause inflammation, digestive problems, or weight gain for you.
Over 80% of Americans are either type O or A. Wheat and corn by-products are two of the key weight-gaining
foods for blood types O and A. Amazingly, most popular “low calorie” diet bars and shakes contain whey and corn-derived
ingredients which for blood type O:
- Inflames your digestive tract lining and
interferes with your digestive process, causing bloating.
- Slows down the rate
of food metabolism, so you don't efficiently burn calories for energy.
your production of insulin.
- Upsets your hormonal balance, causing water retention,
thyroid disorders and other problems.
By simply replacing the key weight-gaining
foods in your diet, you can begin not only helping your body lose weight, but also gain more energy.
|It's Simple to Get Started|
One: It's easy to overlook a common source of dietary lectins: So-called "low
calorie" diet foods and other snack foods. Take a new look at the snacks or diet drinks and powders you may be using
right now. Do any of them contain any of the foodstuffs that are harmful to your blood type, or have lectins known to lead
to inflammation and weight gain?
Consider replacing these with blood-type friendly
Dr. D’Adamo-designed snack bars and our protein drinks and teas. Not only are these foods easier on your system --but they can have an immediate impact on your body’s lectin chain-reactions.
Two: Look at your diet. Don't try to change your entire life in one weekend. After
looking over the key weight-gaining foods for your blood type, consider replacing at least two of them with other foods that
may be neutral or even beneficial for your type.
Example for Types B and AB: Replace
pig products, chicken, corn, wheat and pastas with better-tolerated and neutral Spelt breads and pastas. Ideally, until
you reach your preferred state of health and weight, you'll want to consume less of these grains, and add more quality meats
Example for Types O and A: Replace pig products, wheat breads, dairy and pastas with better-tolerated neutral Spelt breads and
pastas. Ideally, until you reach your preferred state of health and weight, you'll want to consume less of these grains, and
add more quality meats- (O's) and vegetables- (A's). However, removing the gluten is a huge step in the right direction.

Genoma Skin formulas by Dr. Peter D'Adamo
Skin science appears to have caught up with the humble sugar molecule. Wrinkles,
sagging skin, and pigment deposits may stem less from the sun and more from one-way sugar molecules that we make as part of
the aging process but cannot remove. With no small amount of irony, scientists call these wrong-way sugars
AGE molecules (the AGE stands for Advanced Glycation End-products). Unlike most
other complex sugars, AGE molecules are not easily removed from the body. And because they stay in place
for years, the immune system can react to tissues they deposit in, causing inflammation, damage, and aging.
Yet there are natural products that can break up AGE molecules. Dr.
Peter D’Adamo, world-renowned author of the New York Times Bestseller Eat Right for Your Type, has designed a new cosmeceutical
line that specifically combats and removes AGE molecules, helping to restore your skin to a more youthful, healthy glow.
