BLOOD TYPE B – SJOGREN’S SYNDROME – HIGH CHOLESTEROL FYI --- People with Sjogren’s syndrome are found to be deficient in the essential fatty acid, GLA. --- People with blood type B are genetically prone to the more exotic immune system disorders – (MS, Lupus, CFS). Sjogren’s syndrome is considered to be an auto immune disorder. Despite blood types, rheumatoid or autoimmune disorders are thought to have a bacterial or allergenic cause. It has been found, after extensive research, that therapy with non-generic Lederle Minocin alleviates the chronic mycoplasma or strep infection that has been found to cause rheumatoid or autoimmune disorders. ---hypothyroid has been found to play a big part in autoimmune/rheumatoid disorders. The low basal metabolic temperatures involved with hypothyroidism have been found to increase the overgrowth of candida and the risk of strep which, in turn, can proceed on to rheumatoid/autoimmune disorders. Correcting a hypothyroid condition could alleviate the predisposing conditions for the autoimmune disorder. ---systemic or chronic candidiasis may also be a contributor to rheumatoid or autoimmune disorders. This could stem from an improper diet allowing an overabundance of sugars and an overgrowth of candida. Lactobacillus acidophilus and bulgaricus and bifido bacterium all manufacture natural antibiotics that can kill candida. You must, however, change your diet. --- Due to the genetic tendency of B’s towards hypoglycemia, best to stay away from sugar at all costs! Aspartame is even worse in that it has been found to trigger auto immune reactions. --high sugar consumption will also affect the insulin reaction in the body, in some cases causing insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia. This, in turn, drastically affects the blood lipid (cholesterol, triglyceride ) balance in the body. --- Accupuncture treatment has been found to be effective in xerostomia in double –blind studies. --- Sialor ( sialogogue) found to be of benefit to xerostomia and xeropthalmia. --- Eating incorrectly can also cause insulin problem which can, as mentioned, affect cholesterol balance --- Herbs and supplements found beneficial in lowering cholesterol – red yeast rice , pantethine , polycosanols (studies have shown that this is even BETTER at reducing cholesterol than the statins – of which red yeast rice is naturally), guggulipids. ---chemotherapy drugs used to stop the immune system have proven to be NOT beneficial in the long run. It is more important to find out why the immune system is over reacting rather than suppressing it SUPPLEMENTS FOUND TO BE OF BENEFIT --- Calcium, magnesium – (2000,1000mg) – shown to help BALANCE the immune system --- Bromelain (500mg – 2000 GDU,w/meals) or digestive enzyme complex – helps with proper digestion of food. Undigested food permeates the intestinal lining and stimulates an inflammatory response by the immune system against the body. --- Lecithin is highly beneficial – helps protect the immune system --- N-acetyl-cysteine – (NAC) – found to be beneficial in SS and other diseases characterized by free radical oxidative damage. -- best taken 6 hours after mineral supplements or 6 hours before. – 600mg. -- may be good to take with alpha lipoic acid 300mg -- found to have therapeutic effect on ocular symptoms --- Evening primrose oil – shown to be beneficial in ocular and oral status. – high in GLA --- Ester C w/ citrus bioflavanoids and rutin ( 500,200,100mg) – 3Xday or more. Empty stomach to ensure digestive juices don’t diminish bioflavanoid concentrations and effectiveness. -- strong antioxidant, antiviral. Helps the body produce natural interferon. --- chlorophyll – high in magnesium, which has been found to be of benefit in any autoimmune disorder --- Vitamin D3 –(cholecalciferol) – 400iu. – the most bioavailable form of vit. D. Found to be a natural inhibitor of the auto immune mediated processes and selective immune system regulator. --- Probiotics – refrigerated, powdered – best. 1t. in AM and 1t. in PM. – empty stomach. Shown to counter bad bacteria, help detoxify. Toxic build-up may trigger autoimmune and inflammatory reactions --- Nettle root ext. can down-regulate the immune system and is also good against candida --- In women, estrogen dominance has been found to cause auto-immune reaction. Natural progesterone cream has been shown to be effective at balancing estrogen dominance. NUTRITIONAL SUGGESTIONS-(for B’s only – ask about other types) --- Chicken and corn are highly allergenic in B’s. -- can cause hypoglycemia – as does wheat, peanuts, and lentils. --- Best red meat to eat is lamb or mutton. -- turkey, beef, or buffalo occasionally is OK -- NO pork or chicken --- Cod, salmon, flounder, halibut and sole are excellent and highly beneficial. -- NO shell fish, lox, crayfish, etc ---Most dairy is good. -- NO ice cream, string cheese, American cheese, blue cheese --- Olive oil is very good -- as is flax and fish oil. Ghee is also very beneficial. -- avoid all other oils as they contain lectins that may be damaging to the digestive tract. --- Most nuts are NOT good for B’s – interfere with insulin production --almonds are OK – as are walnuts and pecans ( 8-10 nuts 3-5 X week). Almond butter is OK (1T 2-3Xweek) --- Kidney, navy, and lima beans are good . – -- AVOID ALL other beans – found to interfere with insulin production. --- Oats, rice and spelt are highly beneficial grains -- AVOID WHEAT – (insulin problems) RYE – ( bad lectin – settles in vascular system possibly causing blood disorders or stroke), CORN, BUCKWHEAT, AMARANTH (sluggish metabolism and insulin problems) --- Eat plenty of leafy green veges, which contain lots of magnesium. ( anti-viral agent) helpful in immune dysfunctions. -- basically, ALL veges are good. EXCEPT – corn, tomatoes, artichoke, avocado, olives, radishes, pumpkin, sprouts and tofu (contain lectins that are harmful to B’s) --- Most fruits are very good - Try to eat 1-2 servings a day, at least, of bananas, cranberries, grapes, pineapples, plums, papaya. These are highly beneficial. -- NO coconut ---Good drink to have every morning -- 1T. flax oil 1T. lecithin granules 6-8 oz. fruit juice (grape, papaya, pineapple) Shake or mix well Provides high levels of phospholipids beneficial to immune system. --- Spices to AVOID – allspice, almond ext, cinnamon, corn syrup, gelatin, pepper, tapioca. --all are either stomach irritants or have problem lectins) --- NO katsup --tomato lectin is very bad – called a panhemagglutinin --- Licorice tea is good antiviral tea for immune system and to control hypoglycemia. Drink in moderation, as it has tendency to lower potassium and raise blood pressure if used in large amounts or for too long. --- Ginger, peppermint, sage, and panax ginseng ( drink early in the day) found to be very beneficial. --- Use NO senna, aloe, fenugreek, gentian, red clover, skullcap ( bad lectins and may lower blood sugar) --- NO carbonated beverages. Drink lots of non-chlorinated or fluoridated water.
