Update on my Studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

A lot has changed since I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) January 2015. The biggest change is that I went from having ZERO friends in my new home state (Washington) to creating many new friendships.

I’m so lucky because one of my new friends lives in my neighborhood (Belltown, near downtown Seattle). She likes to try new things, just like I do. So far, we’ve been to an urban sweat lodge for infrared sauna and lymphatic drainage massage. In a couple of weeks, we are driving to Bellevue and going to a Himalayan salt room.

Although things are great now, my first few months in Seattle were pretty rough and I even plotted a return to California. It’s now May and I feel like I’m in love with Seattle. I’ve never been so happy in my entire life and a big reason for that are the new relationships I’m making. I’m in love with the natural beauty of Seattle but also love the home that I created. I have a beautiful apartment with a water view. I barely drive my car and can walk just about everywhere I need to go. This is a completely different lifestyle than I had in California, where I would typically spend 10+ hours/week sitting in traffic.

In addition to making new friends at IIN, I’ve also learned a lot of valuable information to help my health coaching clients. Recently, we learned about the blood type diet. I even got my blood tested and discovered I’m A+ blood type.

I’ve been researching blood types ever since learning of this diet. I’ve learned that my blood type is best suited for a vegetarian diet because A blood types are born with low levels of hydrochloric acid. The blood type diet suggests the type of exercise that is best suited for your blood type. My blood type has higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone. Therefore, the diet suggests that I do yoga and walk for exercise. Again, this surprised me because these are my two preferred methods of exercise. I use to do Hiit (high intensity interval training) and would find myself feeling anxious and unable to sleep after class.

Do you know your blood type? If you do, leave your blood type in the comments below.
