Do you know your blood type? Many American’s don’t, but it can be a true vital sign when it comes to dealing with your health. Dr. Peter D’Adamo is a naturopathic physician, distinguished professor of clinical sciences, author, and much more, who is passionate about converging science and nature to find whole-body health.
By using blood types, epigenetics, and computer science, Dr. D’Adamo is individualizing medicine while still honoring the inherent idea of the healing power of nature. Different blood types respond differently to stress, environment, and the microbiome, and it is only by understanding how your blood type impacts your health that you can start to personalize your health to you.
The evidence and utility of your blood type and secreter status is overflowing, and with the information that Dr. D’Adamo shares today, you can get a handle on how your body works so that you can treat it better and promote your longevity. Everything from your blood viscosity to your diet can play a role in how your blood and body reacts to your lifestyle. If you are looking for a science-based framework to understand your body better and give it what it needs, this is an episode you cannot miss.
Discovering how your body works is not a ‘one size fits all’ undertaking. By using technology to provide you with the insights that can bring you back to what you are strongest at, you can learn about the pathways of your body and treat it better.

“The idea that blood type influences personality is kind of silly. The reality is though that there are chemical and immunological and genetic things that do differ by blood type that has to do with how we deal with stress.” (12:10)
“The reality is that we are constantly molding ourselves and remolding ourselves and remaking and remodeling ourselves in response to the environment. And if we didn’t, we wouldn’t be here today.” (15:57)
“Food is a political issue in this particular time period. And to be able to simply anything beyond this idea that there is a one size fits all that is going to work for everybody, that is a very very dangerous thought.” (27:28)
“I decided that I would write software that would simply write everybody their own book. So in our clinic, we do an analysis and generate software, one of a kind diets, that essentially result in the patient having a book written for them right then and there.” (38:52)
“These variations, we shouldn’t be running away from it. We should be accepting it, we should be exploring it, turning it sideways, upside down. Because it is all about learning, it is all about finding out more about ourselves. We should be celebrating the differences rather than trying to sweep them away into a one size fits all thing.” (45:28)
