Your Blood Type Matters
There is an old saying, “one man’s meat is another man’s poison,” suggesting that what may be healthy for one person may make another person feel worse. All too often, people think that because a particular diet or supplement plan improved their health, that it will work for everyone else. While this is well-intentioned, the fact is that people are different. This means you need to adjust your diet and supplements to your unique needs and constitution.
Constitution is rooted in your genetic makeup and one of these fundamental genetic differences is your blood type. You may know that if you were to receive a blood transfusion from an incompatible blood type, your immune system will reject it. However, the four different blood types, O, A, B and AB, affect more than the compatibility to donate or receive blood. Blood type affects how you interact with foods and how your immune system works. It appears to also affect your nervous system function, how you handle stress and even your personality.
Keep in mind that we’re only discussing general characteristics, as blood type is not the only genetic factor that influences your health and personality. However, it does help drive home the point that you need to customize your health program to fit your unique needs and circumstances. We’ll start with an introduction of the four blood types and their basic characteristics.
