Naturopathic medicine is a kind of alternative medicine which emphasize prevention and treatment of diseases and maintaining optimal health through using pseudoscientific natural modalities, such as herbalism, homeopathy, acupuncture, and special diet regimes. The main purpose of this medicine is to stimulate inherent self-healing processes.
According to this medicine, people with different blood types should have different diets. Indeed, some foods are considered to be harmful to certain blood type, while other foods are regarded as beneficial for that particular blood type.
Therefore, here we will present you which foods are best for the four blood types:
Four Blood Types Diets
1. Blood Type 0
This blood type requires a nutrition rich in proteins. People who have blood type 0 are also called ‘the hunters’, and should incorporate protein-abundant foods in their diets. Therefore, they should consume the following foods: poultry, fish, lean meat, and plenty of vegetables. On the other hand, they should cut down the consumption of any kind of dairy products, beans, and grains.
Recommended food: poultry (chicken/turkey), seafood, red meat, spinach, kelp, broccoli, and kale.
2. Blood Type A
People who have blood type A, are also known as ‘the agrarians’ and should have a vegetarian diet. Thereby, they should reduce, or even eliminate, the consumption of meat. Consequently, they should increase the consumption of vegetables and fruits. In addition, these people have a very sensitive immune system, and thus, should always choose organic food rather than processed food.
Recommended food: whole grains rather than the small ones (bread or pasta), vegetables, figs, berries, nectarines, avocados, apples, and nuts and soy (for protein intake).
3. Blood Type B
Those who have blood type B, have the most adaptable and diverse diet. These people are also called ‘the nomads’ and their digestive system is easily adjustable to dairy products. People with this blood type should consume green vegetables, low-fat dairy products, some kind of meats, and eggs. On the contrary, they should stay away from lentils, tomatoes, wheat, buckwheat, sesame seeds, chicken meat, and peanuts.
Recommended food: grains (except buckwheat), any green vegetables, fruits, fish, turkey, and red meat.
4. Blood Type AB
As its name already suggests, this blood type is somewhere between blood type A and blood type B. People who have this blood type are also known as ‘the enigmas’. The preferable diet for them is the one that includes seafood, green vegetables, dairy products, and tofu. Hence, they should refrain from consuming alcohol, caffeine, and smoked meat, because they often have stomach acid issues.
Recommended food: turkey, seafood, fish, tofu, beans, legumes, vegetables, figs, apples, watermelon, and bananas.
