Nutrition plan must be made in accordance with a person’s blood type…

Dietician Bengisu Eken provided details regarding a person’s blood type and style of nutrition with regard to the environment which a person lives in; stressing the strong connection between these concepts. She emphasised the importance of being aware of how compounds as part of nutrition could positively or negatively have an impact on blood. Therefore, she stressed that there is a need for people to reassess their food intake to positively balance their health with regard to nutrition.

Furthermore, she pointed out that beneficial compounds in the blood speeded up the blood flow, and harmful compounds in our blood are transported to our organs; which in return harm the organs and cause various diseases.

Dietician Bengisu Eken expressed that it was also possible to encounter unexpected incidents due to blood types and nutrition in an inappropriate style caused/triggered certain diseases; sometimes seen through ‘intolerance’ or as ‘allergies’. Additionally, Bengisu Eken explained how certain blood types needed to do different types of physical exercises, and that some injuries were caused due to not knowing the ideal nutrition with regard to one’s blood type. Excessive usage of beneficial foods could also harm a person as they could cause hypertention, diabetes, excessiveweight gain and cancer.
