This is a youtube of Dr. D'Adamo about blood typing and genetic coding and its importance in knowing what genotype you are in order to stay healthy.
We can't do anything about the genes we inherited from our parents! We can't add new genes and we can't eradicate the old ones! But what we can do is to "turn up the volume on some genes and silence others, vastly improving our capacity for health and happiness".
We can explore what physical challenges we're likely to face, what stresses we are apt to be prone to AND we have the capacity to respond effectively. How? We don't need lab tests per se, drugs, surgery, or medical intervention to perform this task. We do, however, examine the relationship of our genes and the environment- our genotype as explained in Dr D'Adamo's The Genotype Diet.
Using family history, your blood type, as well as non-invasive, eye opening testing in the privacy of your own home and answering simple questions, you can determine your genotype! Simple tasks such as measuring leg and torso length, leg opening width, body type, wrist circumference test, waist-to-hip-ratio, head shape, looking at finger analysis (index-and ring-finger lengths),and dental characteristics will give enough information for you to determine which of his six Geno Type plans you could look at. This information will reveal previously hidden genetic strengths and weaknesses and provide a precise dietary and lifestyle plan for you to consider.
Below is a synopsis of the six GenoTypes as stated by Dr. D'Adamo. If you are interested in finding out your genotype, our office, Healthy Solutions, would gladly help you.
GenoType 1 The Hunter
Tall, thin, and intense, with an over-abundunce of adrenaline and a fierce, nervous energy that winds down with age, the Hunter was originally the success story of the human species. Vulnerable to systemic burnout when overstressed, the Hunter has a modern challenge: conserve energy for the long haul.
GenoType 2 The Gatherer
Full-figured, even when not overweight, the Gatherer struggles with body image in a culture where thin is "in". An unsuccessful crash dieter with a host of metabolic challenges, the Gatherer becomes a glowing example of health when properly nourished.
GenoType 3 The Teacher
Strong, sinewy and stable, with great chemical synchronicity and stamina, the Teacher is built for longevity-given the right diet and lifestyle. This is the GenoType of balance, blessed with a tremendous capacity for growth and fulfillment.
GenoType 4 The Explorer
Muscular and adventurous, the Explorer is a biological problem solver, with an impressive ability to adapt to environmental changes and a better-than-average capacity for gene repair. The Explorer's vulnerability to hormonal imbalances and chemical sensitivities can be overcome with a balanced diet and lifestyle.
GenoType 5 The Warrior
Long, lean, and healthy in youth, the Warrior is subject to a bodily rebellion midlife. With the optimal diet and lifestyle, the Warrior can overcome the quick-aging metabolic genes and experience a second, "silver", age of health.
GenoType 6 The Nomad
A GenoType of extremes, with a great sensitivity to environmental conditions- especially changes in altitude and barometric pressure- the Nomad is vulnerable to neuromuscular and immune problems. Yet, a well-conditioned Nomad has the enviable gift of controlling caloric intake and aging gracefully.
