Nutrition and Blood Codes
As we continue our topic on the ‘Blood Type Diet’, this week’s blog focuses on what we eat and blood codes.
Our blood is a driving force behind human survival, changing and adapting to new conditions, environments, and food supplies- essentially blood is the key to the body’s entire immune system!
Blood contains proteins that deliver nutrients to the tissues, to the platelets in order to help them clot, and plasma that contains the guardians of our immune system. A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods you eat. This reaction is part of your genetic heritance and is shown in our digestive tracts’ ‘favoritism’ of some foods.
This reaction is because the factor of Lectins, which are diverse proteins found in foods that have agglutinating properties affecting your blood and tissue. Simply put when you eat a food containing protein lectins that are incomparable with your blood type antigen (what triggers an immune response), the lectins can attach to the walls of the digestive tract, initiate inflammation, and even perforate the gut lining and escape into circulation causing stomach aches, bloating, diarrhea (you get the picture).
The goal of the Blood Type Diet is to promote the healthy bacteria in our digestive tract or microbiome. Your blood type antigens are very prominent in your digestive tract; however, people of different blood types have different gut bacteria. This originated from our ancestors whose digestive tracts developed to accommodate one type of diet over another, and whose blood types controlled the ability to rejects or co-exist with certain bacteria but not others.
The study of the blood type diet states that our blood type can actually seed our gut by encouraging the growth of only those bacteria strains that can sue our blood type antigens as a source of food, while our anti-blood-type antibodies attack bacteria that carry antigens resembling those of a different blood type.
