This BioPhenotype corresponds with blood type A, and indicates the presence of one to two million N-acetyl-galactosamine (NAG) molecules dotting the surface of every cell in your body, not just on the red blood cells, and often free floating in your fluids (stomach acid, saliva etc)

The greatest strength, and at the same time the greatest weakness, of this BioPhenotype is the mind and nervous system. When at peace, the mind is intuitive, creative, even visionary. The A mind answers questions quickly and cleverly. However, under stress and pressure, the A mind loses this ability, and there may be a tendency to say things you later regret. It is possible for BioPhenotype A’s to recognize when they are feeling pressured, as it typically produces a tightness in the pit of the stomach, just under the ribs. It is wise to learn to recognize this sign from your body, and use it as a signal to back away from the situation, and let the mind regain its composure before jumping in with an answer. You will find that if you wait until you are relaxed that your intuition will supply you with the clever answer to which you are accustomed.

Stress is at the root of many of the physical problems BioPhenotype A’s suffer with. The digestive organs tend to be delicate in function, and may produce many symptoms such as gas, bloating, irritable bowel, constipation and worse when there is stress. Likewise, stress tends to shorten and tighten the muscles, leading often to headaches and spinal pain. Learning to master the nervous system, to make the most of your natural strength through techniques such as meditation, yoga, tai chi and qi gong , is vital to the health and happiness of the A. A’s should not attempt to quiet their nervous systems with heavy exercise, as this only wears them down in the long run.

Healthy A’s have a limited need for dietary animal protein. As you get stronger, you will find that your doctor will tend to wean you off animal proteins to a great extent, and substitute vegetable proteins such as tofu, nuts and legumes. Dairy and wheat products are to be avoided by this type.
