Did you know your blood type is the key to unlocking the secrets to your biochemical individuality?
We all know that we start out with genes from our parents, which is called genetics, but that is only half the story. How those genes react to our environment is known as epigenetics. For example, you may have inherited a gene for diabetes or heart disease, but these genes can be “turned on” or “silenced.” By the time you’re born, a lot of these patterns have been set. There are a host of environmental factors, including diet and lifestyle, dictate how and when your genes express themselves. With the right tools, you can turn on the good genes and shut down the bad ones. Your cells are constantly replicating, and each time they do, the basic genetic pattern is copied exactly. But which genes are “turned on” and which ones are “silenced” can change each time a cell is copied. That means that your diet, exercise, and stress levels can change long-standing patterns. The foods & supplements we consume contain Lectins that interact with your cells depending on your blood type. This explains why some nutrients which are beneficial to one blood type, may be harmful to the cells of another.
What is a Lectin, you might ask? A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods you eat. This reaction is part of your genetic inheritance. Lectins, abundant and diverse proteins found in foods, have agglutinating properties that affect your blood and the lining of your digestive tract. Lectins are a powerful way for organisms in nature to attach themselves to other organisms in nature.
When eating a food containing protein Lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the Lectins target an organ or bodily system (kidneys, liver, gut, stomach, etc.) and can begin to interact with the tissues in that area.
Have you experienced any of these health conditions? These are some of the signs that you might be experiencing problems from Lectins in your diet:
*Bloating and flatulence after meals
*Changes in bowel habits
*Achy joints and muscles
*Fatigue and tiredness
Your Blood Type is the key that unlocks the door to the mysteries of health, disease, longevity, physical vitality and emotional strength. Are you Blood Type A, B, AB, or O? Knowing your blood type is not the only reason while you are giving blood? Research indicates that your blood type is a key genetic factor that influences many areas of your health and well-being.
Did you notice that some people tend to lose weight more easily, while for others, weight loss for them are more difficult? Or wondered why some people are plagued by certain illness while others stay healthy and vital well into their later years. The answer is in your blood type.Knowing your blood type is an important tool for understanding how your body reacts to food, your susceptibility to disease, your natural reaction to stress, and so much more. A single drop of blood contains a biochemical makeup as unique to you as your fingerprint.
Below are five facts about your blood type that could change your life:
1. Your blood type may predict your susceptibility for certain diseases.
2. People of different blood types react differently to stress.
3. Your blood type antigens are not just in your blood
4. Gut bacteria is related to blood type.
5. A one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition does not work.
Food fads come and go, but it is clear: everyone does not have the same nutritional needs. We all know someone who is a strict vegetarian and thrives on that diet, while others swear by Atkins or similar low-carb plans. I have found that our nutritional needs can be determined by our blood type. This can allow you to lose weight, reduce inflammation, increase energy and lead a longer, healthier life.
