Acne And Your Blood Type Diet
Learn more about acne and the blood type diet
Did you know that the revolutionary blood type diet developed by Dr. Peter D’Adamo (also known as the Genotype Diet) is being tried by a large number of people with acne? The idea behind this naturopathic remedy for acne is based on a number of good reasons.
The first is that the ancients knew all about diets that would keep their bodies fit and healthy. This means they knew all about proper nutrition that not only detoxifies the body but also keeps the body’s physiological functions functioning perfectly.
What is the blood group diet?
according to dr A’damo, who has followed diet and nutrition methods taught by expert nutritionists for centuries, the adage “We are what we eat” is as relevant today as it was millennia ago.
Over the centuries, people have adapted their diet to circumstances and the availability of food. 20,000 years ago people started farming instead of being hunters. As a result, these farmers began eating a diet richer in grains, fruits, and vegetables, while their hunter ancestors relied more on meat, fish, and protein-rich diets.
These hunters were said to be of “O” blood type, while the farmers were said to be of “A” blood type. They thrived on a vegetarian diet.
Another blood type developed in Asia and Africa, where people were farmers and their diets included a large amount of dairy products. That was blood group “B”. People with this blood group tolerate milk products better than people with other blood groups.
How does your diet and blood type affect your health?
Now imagine that a type “O.” They are part of the nutritional profile of high-protein meat eaters. Your body can only tolerate small amounts of legumes, cereals and beans. So if you eat a vegetarian diet, your body will react negatively to it. This reaction is caused by some proteins found in your food.
These proteins are called lectins. Your blood type O genetic makeup means these lectins will only keep you healthy if you eat a lot of meat. The moment you start going vegetarian and cutting back on meat, the lectins have a negative effect on your blood, on a specific organ in your body, or on your general system.
However, you don’t have to worry that these lectins are very dangerous; The body’s natural immune system is able to protect your body from their potentially harmful agglutinating effects on your blood cells. 98% of these lectins are removed from your body during the natural elimination processes.
Nonetheless, your diet affects your health. This in turn has a negative effect on your skin. Because of this, you can see your skin break out in acne.
How Does Your Blood Type Affect an Acne Breakout?
Each blood type has a set of foods that are helpful, beneficial, and medicinal to them. These are the foods that best fit a person’s genetic makeup and are best tolerated by their body. On the other hand, depending on blood type, there are a number of foods that are definitely harmful to the body.
In addition, each blood group has a tolerance limit for a number of foods that have a neutral effect on the blood group.
Now imagine that you are a type A, who has a genetic inheritance for vegetarians and seafood. They thrive on grains, legumes, seafood, vegetables and fruits. Meat, wheat and dairy are not beneficial to you. Now let’s say you eat a diet high in meat.
This adversely affects your body’s biophysiological processes. You may suffer greatly from acne. So you need to cleanse your system by switching to a fruit and vegetable diet and increasing the amount of grains and legumes in your daily meals.
A Type B is omnivorous and can eat meat except chicken, beans, grains, fruits and vegetables, which are healing and beneficial foods. However, if they start consuming a diet high in seeds, chicken, tomatoes and shellfish, they will suffer from health problems. You will also suffer from potential acne breakouts.
So if you suffer from acne, it’s a good idea to find out your blood type. After that, start eating the foods that best match your genetic makeup and heredity. This will keep you sane. This will also give you glowing skin free from acne, blackheads, whiteheads and pimples.
Blood Type and Diet – Logical Tips for Acne Control
A number of people are skeptical about Dr. D’Adamo’s ideas about blood type and your diet because there’s no scientific evidence to back it up. However, let’s go back to old-school naturopathic diets and common sense and understand the basic factors that can improve your acne condition.
Plenty of fruit and veg is always good for everyone, regardless of blood type. Meat products are good for providing you with protein, which is necessary to keep you in a high energy state. The same proteins can also be obtained from lentils and beans.
dr D’Adamo’s diet plan and theory about not eating as many wheat-based foods is also based on simple logic. Wheat and corn contain gluten. Gluten adheres to the intestinal lining, preventing your digestive system from functioning optimally. So what to do in such circumstances? Avoid bread and pasta made from products with a high gluten composition.
Here are some suggestions that may be useful in controlling your acne breakout.
Don’t disturb your acne breakout by touching the infected area. This will spread the infection to other parts of your body. Instead, wash it with a mild antiseptic soap. Try this idea of washing it down with a glycerine soap and a little bit of ordinary sugar. This “dries” the skin and absorbs the oil.
Try a vegetarian diet with more fruits and vegetables instead of meat and fish. Meat takes longer to digest. That means it produces toxins in your stomach. These toxins will have a harmful effect on your skin. So you could be suffering from a possible breakout of pimples. Prevention is always better than cure. So the healing is in your hands!
Hopefully this information is helpful in controlling, preventing and healing your acne problem.
