DO YOU KNOW YOUR BLOOD TYPE?
It is essential that you know your blood type.
Four ways to find out:
If you were in service you will have it in your records.
If you have had surgery your doctor will have it.

Blood Type Antigens
SECRETORS & NON-SECRETORS THE OTHER 20% DO NOT HAVE THE BLOOD TYPE ANTIGENS IN ANY OTHER FLUIDS. NOT MUCH PROTECTION AGAINST ENEMIES NON-SECRETORS 80% OF POPULATION HAVE BLOOD GROUP ANTIGENS THAT FLOAT AROUND IN ALL BODILY SECRETIONS. A LOT OF PROTECTION AGAINST ENEMIES SECRETORS
Scientific research has shown that in general, non-secretors Are far more likely to suffer from an immune disease than secretors. Non-secretors are dominant in virtually every immune system disorder as follows: Generalized inflammation Type I and Type II diabetes Yeast Candida albicans, especially in their mouths and upper gastrointestinal tracts Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium thought to cause most stomach ulcers Heart disease Alcoholism Graves’ disease, reactive arthritis, multiple schlerosis Metabolic problems associated with obesity resulting from insulin resistance Urinary tract infections
OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM ALL LIFE FORMS, FROM THE SIMPLEST VIRUS TO HUMAN BEINGS POSSESS UNIQUE ANTIGENS. SOME OF THE MOST NUMEROUS ANTIGENS IN THE HUMAN BODY ARE THE ONES THAT DETERMINE THE ABO BLOOD GROUPS. THE DIFFERENT BLOOD GROUP ANTIGENS ARE SO SENSITIVE THAT WHEN THEY ARE OPERATING EFFECTIVELY, THEY ARE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM’S GREATEST SECURITY SYSTEM. WHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM DETECTS THAT A FOREIGN ANTIGEN HAS ENTERED THE SYSTEM, IT TRIES TO CREATE ANTIBODIES TO THAT ANTIGEN. THESE ANTIBODIES, SPECIALIZED CHEMICALS MANUFACTURED BY THE CELLS OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, AE DESIGNED TO ATTACH TO AND TAG THE FOREIGN ANTIGEN FOR DESTRUCTION.
WHEN ANYTHING COMES INTO THE BODY THAT, BECAUSE OF YOUR BLOOD TYPE, YOUR BODY IS INTOLERANT OF, THE CELLS, VIRUSES, PARASITES, AND BACTERIA ARE AGGLUTINATED. THEY STICK TOGETHER AND CLUMP UP, WHICH MAKES DISPOSING OF THEM ALL THE EASIER. IT IS LIKE HANDCUFFING CRIMINALS TOGETHER; THEY BECOME FAR LESS DANGEROUS THAN WHEN THEY ARE ALLOWED TO MOVE AROUND FREELY. THE FOODS THAT ARE DESIGNATED AS AVOIDS FOR YOUR BLOOD TYPE, ARE THE CRIMINALS THAT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS FIGHTING. AFTER MANY YEARS OF EATING THESE FOODS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WEAKENS AND THEY WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH SOME ORGANS IN YOUR BODY.
GENOME TESTING THE FUNCTION OF GENES IS TO CREATE PROTEINS THAT ARE USED FOR ALMOST EVERY FUNCTION OF YOUR CELLS. PROTEINS ARE ALSO CRITICAL TO THE FUNCTION OF THE BODY’S ORGANS AND TISSUES. NEARLY EVERY CELL IN YOUR BODY DEPENDS ON THOUSANDS OF PROTEINS TO DO THEIR JOBS IN THE RIGHT PLACES AT THE RIGHT TIMES. BUT SOMETIMES, A MUTATION IN A GENE PREVENTS THESE PROTEINS FROM WORKING PROPERLY. A MUTATED GENE CHANGES THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING PROTEIN, WHICH CAUSES IT TO MALFUNCTION OR TO BE MISSING ENTIRELY. WHEN THIS HAPPENS TO A PROTEIN THAT HAS A CRITICAL ROLE IN THE BODY, IT CAN CAUSE A MEDICAL CONDITION. IT’S HELPFUL TO UNDERSTAND THAT GENES DON’T CAUSE DISEASE. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU DON’T HAVE A “CANCER GENE”. BUT YOU MAY HAVE A MUTATION IN A GENE THAT MAKES PROTEINS FUNCTION IN A WAY THAT CREATES CANCER.
LECTINS: THE DIET CONNECTION A CHEMICAL REACTION OCCURS BETWEEN YOUR BLOOD AND THE FOODS YOU EAT. THIS REACTION IS PART OF YOUR GENETIC INHERITANCE. IT IS AMAZING BUT TRUE THAT TODAY YOUR IMMUNE AND DIGESTIVE SYSTEMS STILL MAINTAIN A FAVORITISM FOR FOODS THAT YOUR BLOOD TYPE ANCESTORS ATE. WHEN YOU EAT A FOOD CONTAINING PROTEIN LECTINS THAT ARE IMCOMPATIBLE WITH YOUR BLOOD TYPE ANTIGEN, THE LECTINS TARGET AN ORGAN OR BODILY SYSTEM (KIDNEYS, LIVER, BRAIN, STOMACH, ETC.) AND BEGIN TO AGGLUTINATE BLOOD CELLS IN THAT AREA. ONCE THE INTACT LECTIN PROTEIN SETTLES SOMEPLACE IN YOUR BODY IT HAS A MAGNETIC EFFECT ON THE CELLS IN THAT REGION. IT CLUMPS THE CELLS TOGETHER AND THEY ARE TARGETED FOR DESTRUCTION, AS IF THEY, TOO, WERE FOREIGN INVADERS.
LECTINS One main reason why certain foods are identified as “avoid” foods is because of the protein molecules, or lectins that they contain. Type O – Most problematic lectin is found in wheat germ and whole wheat products, corn and corn products, catfish, eels, caviar, white potatoes, alfalfa sprouts, and blackberries. Type A – Lima beans, string beans, pinto beans, navy beans, tomatoes, cinnamon, flounder, cantaloupe, bananas, apples, eggplant, anchovies, oranges, shrimp, trout, and clams. Type B – Chicken, peanuts, pomegranates, persimmons, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, beets, salmon, radishes, apples, trout, black-eyed peas, mung bean sprouts, corn and buckwheat. Type AB – Any of foods that react with Type A and Type B
ALKALIZE OR DIE 80% ALKALINE, 20% ACID PRODUCING EACH DAY ALL ALKALINE AND ACID-FORMING REACTIONS ARE DIVIDED INTO SEVEN LEVELS. THESE HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT VALUES ARE ASSIGNED TO ALL FOODS AND SUBSTANCES. 5.0 TO 7.5 ALKALINE FORMING 4.0 TO 4.5 NEUTRAL .5 TO 3.5 ACID FORMING THE FOLLOWING ARE KNOWN MUCOUS PRODUCERS (ACID-FORMING). TRY TO REDUCE OR ELIMINATE THE FOLLOWING: ANY REFINED, PROCESSED, ENRICHED, CHEMICALIZED OR PRESERVED SUGARS, SALTS, AND FOODS. MEAT DAIRY PRODUCTS WHEAT EGGS (EXCEPT RAW OR RUNNY YOLKS

List of symptoms that Dr. James Breneman identified in his book Basics of Food Allergy
Recurrent bladder infections
Chronic low back pain
Recurrent childhood ear infection*
Gallbladder “attacks” *
The conditions marked with * are ones in which allergy is involved at least 70-80 percent of the time.
Irritable bowel syndrome*
Joint pain and swelling
Protein in urine
Recurrent infection (any type) *
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT FOODS?
I have lists of all foods and beverages for each blood type
The lists are divided into:
Beneficial – work like medicine
Neutral – okay to eat for nutritional value
Avoid – work like poison in your
OATMEAL WAFFLES OR PANCAKES 1 cup Silk, rice milk or almond milk ¾ cup quick cooking oats, raw ¾ cup oat flour ¼ cup ground flaxseed 2 tbl. Sugar 2 tsp. Baking powder ½ tsp. Salt 2 egg yolks slightly beaten 1 tbl cooking oil 2 egg whites Heat milk. Stir in oats and let stand for 5 minutes. Combine remaining dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, then add oat/milk mixture. Add egg yolks and oil into the mix. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, then fold into batter. Makes 8, 4 inch pancakes. POMEGRANATE SMOOTHIE 8 oz.

DIFFERENT FROM MOST BREAD TODAY, THIS UNIQUE BREAD IS MADE FROM FRESHLY SPROUTED LIVE GRAINS AND CONTAINS ABSOLUTELY NO FLOUR. SPROUTING THE GRAINS IS THE BEST WAY TO RELEASE ALL OF THE VITAL NUTRIENTS STORED IN WHOLE GRAINS. THE SPROUTING PROCESS NOT ONLY INCREASES VITAMINS, BUT ALSO CAUSES A NATURAL CHANGE THAT ALLOWS THE PROTEIN AND CARBOHYDRATES TO BE ASSIMILATED BY THE BODY MORE EFFICIENTLY. WHEN THE SIX GRAINS AND LEGUMES ARE SPROUTED AND COMBINED AN AMAZING THING HAPPENS. A COMPLETE PROTEIN IS CREATED THAT CLOSELY PARALLELS THE PROTEIN FOUND IN MILK AND EGGS. THERE ARE 18 AMINO ACIDS PRESENT IN THIS UNIQUE BREAD. ALWAYS TOAST IT AND SERVE WARM TO RELEASE ITS EXCEPTIONALLY RICH NATURAL SESAME TASTE. NOW THEY MAKE BUNS, RAISIN BREAD, ENGLISH MUFFINS, BAGELS, AND CEREALS. YOU WILL FIND THE BREADS IN A FROZEN FOOD SECTION OF THE HEALTHY FOODS SECTION. EZEKIEL BREAD
LETTER FROM PARTICIPANT IN A TOPS MEETING ABOUT BLOOD TYPE DIET Hi Marie: You may not remember the name, but I was at the TOPS meeting that you spoke to back in August or September regarding the blood type diet Just wanted you to hear of my success! I immediately changed the foods that I had been eating according to the lists and after one week was able to stop taking acid reflux meds. I have lost 17 pounds and feel great!It’s hard to believe that foods that we think are good for us, actually can hurt us. I have friends interested in copies of the foods for specific blood types. Would you mind sending me the lists for A and O? Again, I want to thank you for such valuable information. I love feeling good after so many years (and $$$ spent) of stomach/gastro issues. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Jacque Keith
