Blood Type Diet Detox


As we head into the holidays and the end of the year, our stress levels increase and our ability to manage our diets gets compromised with eating out, holiday treats, and all the family foods associated with the holidays.   It’s very likely that you’ve strayed into avoid territory on more than one occasion, and it’s a good time to revive your body with a cleansing blood type diet detox program this fall.

For a generally healthy person, Dr. D’Adamo suggests a one week program of whole, organic foods and supplements but does not recommend fasting. He believes that, “Fasting is one way to detox your body, but probably not the best way. I would only suggest fasting if you are under the guidance of a physician.”

Start by choosing only those foods that are considered beneficial and highly beneficial for your type. If you need some menu guidance, refer back to your Eat Right, Live Right, Cook Right or GenoType Diet books, your personalized SWAMI diet report or the recipe database on www.dadamo.com By eating beneficial foods and taking supplements that are compatible with your blood type or GenoType®, you will be cleansing and detoxifying your body and allowing all the body’s systems to function at their very best. Purchase organic when possible and stick to buying whole foods, rather than processed foods from a box, bag or can.

Start the day with a tall glass of water with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Continue drinking water throughout the day. Water helps with cell regeneration and helps to cleanse the body. Aim to drink eight to ten glasses of water per day.

Avoid being around harsh chemicals and steer clear of chemical cleansers – try vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda instead (not only are they better for you, they are better for the environment too).

Get some fresh air! Bundle up and go outside for a walk. You’ll get your blood circulating, your muscles pumping and the clean, crisp air will revive you.

As part of your detox protocol, Dr. D’Adamo recommends some herbal supplements for each blood type. Each protocol is to be done for 7 consecutive days.
