What I have learned (and lived!) since then (thanks to the work of Peter D’Adamo, son of James!) is that our blood type provides us with some pretty amazing inside information, as to how we can truly live our best life, if we choose to. We can optimize our weight, maximize our health, and manage the way we are affected by and deal with stress (good and bad!), all by making choices based on our blood type. Continuing research shows that blood type, in conjunction with other measures (literally!) can fine-tune further who we are chemically. What I find most compelling is that testing, and the technology associated with the testing has shown that eating according to genotype (which encompasses blood type) is a verifiable way to change our DNA; by making informed choices, we not only have the opportunity to live our best life, but we have the opportunity to re-write our family history.
In terms of your life today, gluten sensitivities and milk allergies, migraine headaches, joint problems, weight issues and pretty much any symptom that suggests that what you are currently doing is not working in your favor, can be your invitation to explore your blood type (and genotype). If you are ready and willing to accept the responsibility for your health and wellness, your first and best step in the right direction may just be to find out your blood type!
