I was introduced to the idea of blood type as an indicator of human differentiation sometime in the late 1990s. A friend passed along a book that had been given to her on a camping trip, written by James D’Adamo, DC. One Man’s Food is another Man’s Poison presented the idea that the foods that we do best (and worst!) with could be determined by knowing our blood type. I found this strangely intriguing; it seemed to be radical and yet it made so much sense! (It also started my journey into the realization that the answers to pretty much everything really do lie within us!)
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!
As a wife, mother and grandmother (yikes!), healthy ALTERNATIVES is more than a business. It is a way to help make others aware that they have choices (healthy alternatives!) when it comes to health and wellness, and that the best choices are informed choices.
