Smells like licorice

There are two herbs I would never have tried except for Dr. D’Adamo.  One is anise – neutral for Type Os, but beneficial for my Hunter side.  The other is fennel – neutral for Type O, but beneficial for Type As and beneficial for my Gatherer side.  Both smell like licorice to me, and I […]

Happy ending to “Baby Friendly” blogs!

No hospital would advertise itself as being unfriendly to mothers and babies, yet there is a wide variety in hospital policy.  My daughter’s experience 3 years ago and this year were not even comparable.  Her tour of the hospital where she gave birth this year gave no indication of what their policies really were.  I’ve […]

Happy Hanukkah!

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah celebrates a miracle, when 1 tiny jar of olive oil burned for 8 nights instead of only one. So, fried foods have become associated with the holiday- especially if they’re fried in olive oil. Potato pancakes, known as latkes, are the Hanukkah treat that I grew up with. They’re fried […]

Beware of Baby Friendly Part 2

Ruth made an excellent observation after my previous blog.  She said “If you want breastfeeding to work, it’s a bad idea to introduce any artificial nipples (bottles or pacifiers) before breastfeeding is well established. Some babies can switch back and forth with no problems, but others completely lose the ability to nurse properly after being […]

Beware of Baby Friendly

Precious Baby is 2 weeks old.  He is alert, making eye contact, growing stronger, and sleeping well.  Sounds perfect, and he is, but there were several moments when such a wonderful outcome could have ended in disaster.  The rights that women like myself fought for in the 1980s have morphed into what is called the […]

Mazel Tov!

On Sunday, I went to my cousin’s wedding celebration. The actual wedding took place in Tel Aviv the week before, but they also had a party in New Jersey for those who couldn’t make it to Israel. He grew up in New Jersey and she grew up in Israel, and both have extended family on […]

Preguntas y respuestas

A continuación varias preguntas hechas por seguidores durante años, y sus respectivas respuestas respaldadas por el Dr. D’Adamo:   ¿Que son ’lectinas’? Son moléculas proteicas que se encuentran en los alimentos que unidas a glicoproteinas y glicolipidos en la superficie de célula o en tejido corporal causan aglutinación. Algunas lectinas causan aglutinamiento de los eritrocitos […]

The Cost of Free Food

  A while ago, I posted about all the free food I was getting from various sources. There’s the organization that used to be called Food Not Bombs, but has since been renamed Community Solidarity. They collect food donations from individuals and stores, and give it away to anybody who has the time and energy […]

Greens I never knew existed

Now that the weather is getting cooler, I am getting greens every week in the box from the organic farm.  Some are beneficial favorites like collards, kale, and spinach.  But there are a surprising number of greens that I have never heard of. Sweet potato greens – Obviously these are the tops to sweet potatoes.  […]

Cianocobalamina versus Metilcobalamina

¿En que forma se diferencia la vitamina B12? La cianocobalamina es la forma más común de vitamina B12, que se encuentra en las farmacias. Le sorprenderá que esta forma de vitamina B 12 no ocurre en plantas o tejido animal. En otras palabras, seria imposible encontrar este componente químicamente sintetizado en la naturaleza. Tal como […]
