Have you heard of blood type diet? Well, the basic idea of blood type diet is that your blood is the determinant of the diseases your body can suffer. But if you plan your diet according to your blood, you can stay healthy always.
According to Dr. Mozzi food works better than any other medicine and if we take food according to our blood type, we won’t have to take any other medicine. The food itself can heal chronic disorders. As such, every doctor recommends a particular diet for diseases like hypertension, diabetes or even high fever etc. But the suggestions by Dr. Mozzi are more accurate as he has had defined a list of good and bad foods based on blood types.
Dr. Mozzi also defines some guidelines for all, regardless of blood type. According to him:
- Dairy products should be minimized from the diet because they cause joint pain
- So also, gluten should be minimized because it gives rise to gut inflammation
- A glassful of lukewarm water and lemon in the morning is advisable for everyone because citrate in lemon maintains the right pH balance in the intestine.
