Book Review of: Eat Right 4 Your Type
by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo

Nutrition, Blood Types & Depression In the book, Eat Right 4 Your Type, Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, a naturopath, explores the connection between blood types, nutrition, exercise, supplements and risk factors for disease. Dr. D'Adamo and his father, Dr. James D'Adamo, N.D. have studied blood type information for over 40 years.

One area of this research has been the connection that they have found between nutrition, blood types and depression. Two of the blood types that they have found a collation for are Type-Os and Type-Bs.

Type-O: They have found in many of their case studies, that a deficiency in Vitamin B-12 and folic acid in people of Type O blood can lead to depression. They have successfully treated depression, hyperactivity and ADD by increasing the amount of Vitamin B-12 and folic acid along with a Type-O diet and exercise program. These vitamins are responsible for the development of DNA.

Dr. D'Adamo recommends that you ensure that the Vitamins be free of any binders, fillers and to avoid a formula that contains yeast or wheat germ. The foods high in Vitamin B for Type-O's include: Meat Nuts Liver, Kidney, Muscle meats Dark green, leafy vegetables Eggs (in moderation) Fruit Fish.

Type-B: If a Type-B person has an imbalance of magnesium, there may occur a risk of viruses, fatigue, nervous disorders and depression. Re-balancing the calcium and magnesium levels helps. The foods high in Magnesium for Type-B's include: Grains & Legumes Green Vegetables - beet leaves, broccoli, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, parsley, green peppers, Brussels sprouts
