The Genotype Diet
The Genotype Diet is a further development of the Blood Type Diet which was developed by Dr Peter Dadamo ND. This system is designed to utilise the genetic traits of each individual to achieve tailor made health programs and to better fight disease and to promote wellness. The system still utilizes blood type specific markers such ABO type, secretor status and rhesus blood type status, however physical characteristics of the individual are also utilized to understand one’s genetic profile. Measurement taken include finger, leg and torso length caparisons and cranial width and lengths. Other tests include prop testing and fingerprinting to understand one’s genetic individuality.
There are 6 Possible Genotypes and they are as followed:
Tall, thin and intense, with an overabundance 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’s modern challenge is to conserve energy for the long haul.
Sinewy and flexible, with an amazing adaptability, the Teacher is a balance between opposing forces and often contradictory forces. Blessed with a tolerant immune system, the teacher can be burdened by excess altruism, leading to problems finding and dealing with the bad guys.
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 brain strain can be overcome with a balanced diet and lifestyle.
Long, lean and healthy in youth, the Warrior is subject to a bodily rebellion in midlife. With the optimal diet and lifestyle, the Warrior can overcome the quick –aging metabolic genes and experience a “silver age” of health.
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 calorie intake and aging gracefully.
Gatherers carried humanity on their backs during times of famine and scarcity. They are nature’s ultimate survival strategy. Vulnerable to conserving calories as stored fat, the Gatherer’s modern challenge is to fit their survival programming to the realities of today’s overabundance of fats and sugar.
At the clinic we screen people for their genotypes to further fine tune and enhance healing outcomes.
