Questions About Specific Health Issues

Kids and Infections


My two children aged 3 and 5 are both on the bloodtype diet. Their health is good but still they get the necessary infections. As I don't want to give them regular medicines I use Echinacea and homeopathy. Could you recommend some supplements, children vitamins specific for their bloodgroup B. I suppose I can't give them any of the recommmended herbs or supplements for B as they are much too young. Thank you for your time.


I have found that young children (my own included) benefit from the use of elderberry as a general preventive against flu and other viruses. This may be even more important in children who are blood group B, since that blood group is more prone to low viral resistance. A great-tasting product that is very effective is NAP's Proberry 3 syrup.

Another easy-to-use product which can help to prevent infections typically seen as children return to the classroom is larch arabinogalactan. Larch is a milder immune modulator, similar in action to echinacea, but usable by all blood groups and possessing additional beneficial effects on the intestines. NAP's ARA6 is the only arabinogalactan product available using pharmaceutical grade larch: all others use the cruder food grade.

Both compounds are safe and equally usable by any blood group.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
