How did you first hear about Dr. D’Adamo and The Blood Type Diet?
After graduation, on January 5, 2010, my nutrition lecturer asked me to come back to complete their Blood Type Diet Diploma. I vacantly asked, “What is the Blood Type Diet?”. He replied, “What blood type are you?”. “A+” I responded. His response felt as though I had been punched in the face; “Blood Type A. Shouldn’t eat red meat. Very susceptible to colon cancer” he said. Wow! 47 years old, had blood coming out of me for about 5 years and no one had ever told me that before! I have not eaten red meat since that fateful January day over 12 years ago, have never felt better and have had no blood come out ever since! I bought Dr. D’Adamo’s book, Eat Right For Your Type, booked onto his courses to become a Fellow and Master of his Institute for Human Individuality, and committed to finding out everything I could about this amazing new discovery.
What drives your commitment to excellence?
The day I started work on July 25, 1979, I was shown a sign. It read “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” I have this incredible desire to achieve and be the best I can possibly be at whatever it is I do. If I ever start to falter, I picture this sign in my mind and it fires me up to do well. I am very intolerant of sloppiness – of people not doing their best. If you can’t do your best at whatever it is you are doing, why bother doing it at all?
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping people achieve their goals whatever they may be. One of my favourite sayings is by the late Zig Ziglar. He said “If you help enough people get what they want, you can have everything you want.” When people telephone me and ask me about The Blood Type Diet, what it is, does it work etc? I tell them my story. It blows them away! Over the years I have collected many stories from other people and I tell my story and other people’s stories to as many people as I can on a daily basis. The more stories I collect, the more people I can help. I love it!
What is your favorite DPN product?
Genoma Security due to it containing the herb Schisandra chinensis. I first learned about this herb at a conference in 1987 and how it was used by the Sherpas in the Himalayas to assist with breathing issues, important when living at high altitude in the Himalayas. In traditional Chinese medicine Schisandra chinensis is considered beneficial to qi (chi), the life force inherent in all living things. When I found Dr. D’Adamo’s Genoma Security which contained not only Schisandra chinensis but four additional well-researched Chinese herbs, I was very excited! I never go anywhere without a tub of Genoma Security in my luggage.
What is your vision for the next 3 years?
As the new UK and EU distributor for D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition, I aim to share the benefits of The Blood Type Diet and the supplements to as many people as I possibly can. I want everyone to know their blood type, and what to eat and not to eat based on this important scientifically proven information. This is my goal, and I am big on setting and achieving goals. It’s what I’ve done my entire life!
