The short answer is No. ShaeWellness is very different to any “Type” concept. It considers many more variables that affect the way your body functions in real-time. A “Type” concept assumes that your constitution remains the same regardless of your circumstances. But it is now a commonly accepted fact that our environment has a large effect on your gene expression and body function, as does your age, as does your gender, as does your family history, etc. So ShaeWellness and the ph360 engine consider your “Type” as just one of many factors that it calculates in order to provide you with accurate health information based on your current circumstances. There are 4 blood types (according to Dr. D’Adamo’s “Blood Type Diet” science). That means these diets place the whole world population into 4 categories. ShaeWellness and ph360 do not place anyone into any 1 category and personalises everything with thousands of layers of details because we are all unique and not able to be grouped into such simple categories. The principles behind the genotype and blood type diets aren’t wrong, just like Ayurvedic types (kapha, vata, pitta). The genotype and the Ayurvedic type are all puzzle pieces we use in layers to create the unique diet that best fits you. Here’s an example. Kale, in this site, is identified as beneficial for everyone. However, if you have a risk of a lower functioning thyroid, kale must be avoided. And if you have a risk of kidney or gall stones, then kale must also be avoided. And if you have diverticulitis and some other inflammatory conditions of the digestive system, that kale must be reduced or juiced.
