Blood Type O was the first blood type, and they have a higher amount of stomach acid than the other blood types, which often results in stomach irritation and ulcers. O’s profile, (from ancestral canny aggressive predator) is exhibited in society today with leadership, extroversion, energy and focus. They can be powerful and productive, however, when stressed Type O’s response can be one of anger, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. When type O wiring gets crossed, as a result of poor diet, lack of exercise, unhealthy behaviors or elevated stress levels, Type O’s are more vulnerable to negative metabolic effects, including insulin resistance, sluggish thyroid activity, and weight gain. When you customize your life to type O’s strengths you can reap the benefits of your ancestry. Your genetic inheritance offers you the opportunity to be strong, lean, productive, long-lived, and optimistic.
The type O’s diet should focus on lean, organic meats, along with vegetables, and fruits. Type O’s should avoid wheat and dairy products, which can be triggers for digestive and health issues such as sluggish thyroid activity and weight gain. Cutting out caffeine and alcohol, can also be helpful for type O’s. O’s derive more pleasure and satisfaction from physical activity, than other blood types, making physical activity a key component of both physical and mental balance for them.
