I'm an O+ non secretor, and they say I should eat a vegan diet to help with herbal therapy to remove/reduce mucus, and I have been for 5 days, and am thinking of staying on it. I ate vegan on and off for several years, and I seemed to have more pep on vegan. I became B12 deficient, which is common in vegan diet if no B12 is taken. I plan to take Sub-l B12 this time.
I did not seem to have more pep on eating meat, or after adding it. I may have added it because MD told me to, due to B12. I have a feeling I can make vegan eating work for me, but I'm not 100% sure of it. I seem to have no trouble with grains. I think my trouble has more to do with internal toxicity and poor organ function. I plan to keep an eye on B12, zinc, and copper levels. I can get enough protein from one properly combined protein meal for breakfast, with low heat cooked beans and soaked nuts and seeds with low starch vegs.
I was told that if my organs are working the way they should, that I'll absorb nutrients from foods the way I'm supposed to. I plan to do things like bowel, liver, and kidney cleanses.
I often hear of people that got cancer and were told to avoid all meats, and it seems that if they did, they recovered from cancer, but if / when they go back to meat, the cancer re-appears. At my age of 59, I need to look at survival, even it it doesn't agree with blood type and metabolic type diets. I feel it's a better idea to eat vegan now, not after I get some life threatening condition that I need to try to reverse.
I don't know why but I have a hard time envisioning people in their 70s and 80s of any blood type eating meat meals and being healthy.
