The D'Adamo Health Protocols
The D'Adamo Health Protocols are a series of naturopathic techniques created and used by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, ND MIFHI, that you can use to help enhance your health and vitality.
These protocols should not be used as a substitution for the services of your G.P. or healthcare practitioner and are not to be used in the treatment, prevention or diagnosis of any specific disease. Always check with your G.P. before using any supplement or medication.
A more extensive discussion on the use of herbs and supplements in conjunction with the Blood Type Diet® can be found in the Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia.

D'Adamo and using herbs and products currently available under the UK legislation which may, in certain protocols, differ from the products available in the USA. Any commercial items which may differ and/or are not specifically recommended as part of the official D'Adamo Health Protocols are marked * and are alternatives recommended by Paul Hopfensperger MIfHI MCMA of Body and Mind Studio® in the UK.
LIVER DISEASE - Alterations in the functioning of the liver.
Cirrhosis of the liver can begin slowly with few symptoms to identify what is happening in the liver. As the disease slowly takes hold, the following symptoms may begin to appear:-
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weight loss
- Enlargement of the liver
- Jaundice (yellow discolouration of the whites of the eyes and skin, because bile pigment can longer be removed by the liver)
- Itching due to the retention of bile products in the skin
- Abdominal swelling due to an accumulation of fluid caused by the obstruction of blood flow through the liver
- Vomitting of blood
- Increased sensitivity to drugs due to inability of the liver to inactivate them.
