Should you follow a specific diet and exercise plan based upon your blood type? That is what Dr. D’Adamo suggests in his book Eat Right for Your Blood Type. D’Adamo is a naturopathic doctor who feels that one’s blood type may determine which diseases and illnesses you may develop. It is an intriguing approach; however, no research has been conducted, and there are no studies that show blood type can be a predictor for the development of certain diseases.
That being said, if you are intrigued by the idea of eating according to your blood type, here is the basic premise of the diet: D’Adamo is that not everyone should follow the same diet, and that blood type and your race determines tolerance to what you should and should not eat. Based on this, there are 16 groups of food that are highly beneficial, neutral or should be avoided.
According to the blood-type diet, there are 4 blood types:
- Type O - the oldest blood type
- Type A - agrarian
- Type B - nomadic
- Type AB - modern

Imagine an activity that increases your flexibility, strengthens your muscles, centers your thoughts, and relaxes and calms you. Yoga does all that and more! Recent studies in people with chronic low-back pain suggest that a carefully adapted set of yoga poses may help reduce pain and improve function (the ability to walk and move). Studies also suggest that practicing yoga (as well as other forms of regular exercise) might have other health benefits such as reducing heart rate and blood pressure, and may also help relieve anxiety and depression.
