Blood Group Diet
The Blood Group Diet works on the type blood group you are A, B, O, AB. Including or excluding certain foods into your diet for a healthier you.
Each blood type represents genetic traits of our ancestors, including which diet they evolved to thrive on. Your blood group can assist when making changes to your current diet. The blood group information has been around for many years and Robynn has used it successfully in the clinic when treating patients with chronic inflammation diseases and other health issues.
- Type A: Called the agrarian, or cultivator. People who are type A should eat a diet rich in plants, and eat very if not any red meat.
- Type B: Called the nomad. These people can eat plants and most meats (except chicken and pork), and can also eat some dairy.
- Type AB: Called the enigma. Described as a mix between types A and B. Foods to eat include seafood, tofu, dairy, beans and grains.
- Type O: Called the hunter. This is a high-protein diet based largely on meat, fish, poultry, certain fruits and vegetables, but limited in grains, legumes and dairy.
Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients—because they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help build up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.
Vitamins have multiple functions and are essential to your well-being and to maintain normal body functions (good eyesight, energy levels, cell growth, bone health, a healthy immune system, blood coagulation, etc.). Your body needs sufficient vitamins to function properly.
Nutrient deficiencies or diseases can be the result of poor nutritional intake, chronic health conditions, acute health conditions, medications, altered nutrient metabolism, or a combination of these factors, and can impact the levels of both macronutrients and micronutrients in the body. Your body can be out of balance and presenting with deficiencies. This could be due to the lack of absorption in the digestive tract or if you do not eat a balanced diet including a variety of fruits, nuts, grains, vegetables and meat items your body may be low in certain vitamins & minerals and supplements may be required.
In the clinic we only use high quality sourced vitamins & minerals from reputable companies.
