A Diet for RH Negatives

By Joseph Nicholson 

The Rhesus, or Rh, factor is a protein that is present on the surface of most people’s red blood cells. According to the Nemours Foundation, about 85% of people are Rh positive. The Rh negative diet is largely the product of work by Dr. Laura Power, creator of the Biotypes Diets. According to Dr. Power, Rh negative blood, the red blood cells of which are without the Rh factor, developed only among the isolated communities of the French and Spanish Pyranees and have the highest propensity for food allergies, necessitating a special diet.


The Rh negative diet is based on the other major classification of your blood, O, A or B. Dr. Power’s Biotype Diets are designed primarily for those more common blood types. If you choose to develop your diet around your blood type, you should begin by focusing on your ABO blood type. In addition to the Biotype Diets, you might also refer to the D’Adamo Institute’s blood type diets.


According to Dr. Power, the evolution of the Rh negative blood in Western Europe explains why the blood type fares best with Western European Foods. Within the directives of the ABO blood type diet, Rh negative individuals should eat a variety of meats, poultry, seafood, European fruits and vegetables, roots, tubers and seeds. But, in addition to the limitations imposed by the ABO blood type, Rh negative individuals should also avoid certain foods in these categories to which they may be allergic or hypersensitive.


In a study published in a 2007 issue of the “Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine,” Dr. Power described the results of her experiments on allergic responses to foods based on blood type. According to the article, the results did in fact show responses patterned according to blood type, vindicating the blood type diet approach. Rh negative blood reacted most severely with eggs, milk, cheese, nuts, beans (legumes) and gluten. It was also consistently among the top producers of immunoglobulin E (IgE).


Dr. Powers’ findings regarding IgE reflect the fact that individuals with Rh negative blood are more likely to have true food allergies. According to Medline Plus, true food allergies, in which the body produces an immune response against molecules in certain foods, are relatively rare – they affect less than 1% of the American population. The production of IgE antibodies in particular are responsible for primary food allergy symptoms. Rh negative blood types had the most severe response to peanuts, suggesting a propensity for peanut allergy. Rh factor negative is also hypersensitive to beans (legumes).


In addition to ABO blood types, you may be interested in learning more about your genotype. Dr. Peter D’Adamo, a pioneer in blood type diets, also developed a parallel diet system based on genetic type rather than blood type. According to Dr. Tom Greenfield, a UK physician using the D’Adamo approaches to diet, Rh negative individùals should make specific adjustments to their ABO diet, and might have entirely different diets based on their genotype. Greenfield quotes D’Adamo as recommending fewer grains for all Rh negatives, fewer fruits for A negatives and more protein for B and O negative individuals.

    Less than an hour away by snowmobile, Chinese laborers have updated the Great Wall Station, a linchpin in China’s plan to operate five bases on Antarctica, complete with an indoor badminton court, domes to protect satellite stations and sleeping quarters for 150 people.

    Not to be outdone, India’s futuristic new Bharathi base, built on stilts using 134 interlocking shipping containers, resembles a spaceship. Turkey and Iran have announced plans to build bases, too.

    More than a century has passed since explorers raced to plant their flags at the bottom of the world, and for decades to come this continent is supposed to be protected as a scientific preserve, shielded from intrusions like military activities and mining.”



    “What are we to make of this? Truth loses all meaning; Wiesel acknowledges he tells tales that he wants you and me to believe really happened when he himself knows they didn’t. He doesn’t apologize either. He justifies. He deflects the rabbi’s sharp moral denunciation with his own measure of pseudo-mystification, in spite of the fact that his rebbe sees through him. And that is the way he is with the public too—even though it is understood by the intelligent critics that he is writing fiction, he keeps up the “witness” pretense for the gullible and the young.”:-

  2. I have been telling my stupid Doctors my whole life that every time I eat bread, within 5 minutes I get all congested in my sinuses and back in my throat!

    This happens every single time so, I asked to be tested for food allergies and they all refused.

    I’m O Rh Neg.

    I think in the future all meds will be prescribed according to bloodtype/genome and that it is my opinion as to why some meds work for some people and not for others.

    Did you know there was an actual medical study done that showed red headed people require more pain medication to achieve the same pain relief as others yet I have never found a Dr. who will prescribe that way!

    We ARE different.

    1. I have never doubted it Jon.

      Would it be possible to post the link to the study about Redheads and pain relief? I would like to read that.

        1. Maybe redheads need more pain medication because they tend to become more emotional and hysterical? …:just saying…lol (I’m blonde).

          I do agree with future treatments being based on genotypes, blood types, etc. It’s already being done. The rate at which this research is developing is frightening, and what they are capable of doing with their current knowledge is even more frightening. They have already surpassed the previous limits that were placed on the time a viable foetus may be kept for research, makes for huge ethical deliberations.

          Thank god us Rhesus Negatives can’t be cloned!

          Regarding the diet, sounds like I am doomed. I am O negative, love my milk, cheese, eggs. Did really well on a high protein weight loss diet eating plenty of eggs. Diets containing high amounts of fruit have left me physically ill, and I can normally eat virtually anything.

          Interesting discussion.

    2. Jon I am Rh O negative as well, I seem to absorb more iron from my food if I leave out the bread. Bread seems to cause fatigue. We have no need of breaking bread. Irene

      1. I am certainly amenable to conversing with you on occasion. I am Rh- B. I am from Tx. I have been researching Rh-‘s and everything I can find regarding it. I need a buddy to bounce ideas and theories off of and someone to do the same for me. Thepinchandroll@gmail.com

  3. I agree with being “Targeted” I have had the MVA show up in 3 different occasions after my surgery due to put of state tags.

    2 different men came to where I was staying in private property questioning me and I was audited in my early 20’s. I am Rh negative just like my father.

    None of my five sibilings are. Just me.

    I have been homeless and always get the feeling I am being watched via cell phone or computer so I make sure to tape it up.

    My husband thinks I am just acting paranoid but to me I am not.

    1. And I really thought I was targeted on my beliefs, but makes perfect sense now! I also refuse any doctor visits and have a deep seeded hatred for them above anyone else I know or have met to date.

  4. From my own research into red head / rh neg genetics, we have different cells lining our digestive tract that lead to higher incidence of intestinal permeability.

    This means a higher incidence of food intolerance, especially to lectins phytates and glutens. Basically all grains and legumes, as well as nightshade vegetables which are tomatoes potatoes peppers, eggplants, tomatillo and several medicinal herbs.

    This long slow damage is the mechanism behind many inflammatory and Autoimmune diseases. As well as many mental issues because of the degraded ability to absorb B vitamins once the intestinal permeability has reached a high level of damage.

    Methylation b vitamins are a must including methyl folate because of a gene that means we can’t use folic acid, the perfect diet for our people is high fat, moderate protein, low carb.

    Basically keep your carbs to leafy greens and such.
