When a loved one passes away one often experiences deep loss and often feelings of regret. “What could I have said or done differently to have made a difference?,” we wonder. For many, these feelings can last for a lifetime whenever they think of the person who has crossed over. I don’t believe this is what was intended by God or the Universe, however. And certainly not by the soul of the deceased, who has happily let go of all the petty details of the earthly life and is now continuing its evolution from where it left off.

Dr. Peter D’Adamo launched a revolution in nutrition with the 1996 publication of his book, Eat Right For Your Type. People realized that a one-size-fits-all approach to eating didn’t work. For some, a vegetarian diet did wonders while for others, a high-protein diet with plenty of animal protein resonated with their bodies. After watching thousands of patients heal and thrive on the Blood Type Diet, Dr. D’Adamo decided to take the concept of individualization to the next level by fusing the science behind blood type with the field of nutrigenomics—how gene expression, and therefore health, is affected by the foods a person consumes.
