This is an interesting topic to keep looking into.  For me with Aboriginal and Greek ancestory, I don't eat coconut products much (I used to though).  In Dr D's book, Cardiovascular Disease, coconut oil is good for type O nonnies.  For me, I may use it on occasion, but I prefer to use ghee, or duck fat as my aboriginal ancestors would have done.  I was born in Tasmania, and no coconuts down there! With my gut in poor condition (Dr Dr is right about grains, sugars, and starches), yes, the oil in small quantities ok as antibacterial and antifungal properties.  I still use garlic, lemon juice, fresh and dried herbs and spices to help in my gut and now have taken out seed-like grains too as in Dr Cordain's book,
'The Paleo Answer' - low starch veggies are much better in my system.  and of course, freshly cooked broths from beef bones and chicken/duck bones.  The inflammation in my system is slowly disappearing, as my sleep is better, my hair smoother and softer, headaches/migraines better, skin softer, feel better when wake up in morning.  I had chicken/duck bone soup with veggies last weekend and wow, my system worked so well and so much energy yesterday too - I felt like a 'true hunter' able to go walkabout and get so much done during the day.  Plus relaxed in bathtub, abdominal massage all helps.
Now happily grain, sugar, starch free!!  this means no carob or chocolate or cocoa. I make something sweet out of nuts/seeds/nut butters, but less and less often as fruit is so good, esp now in Aussie summer.  I believe Dr Gabriel Cousen's piece from his web site on starchaholics, so now guess I am a recovering starchalcholic, and learning to deal with life much more positively.

Oh well, I haven't been on here for a while and in the meanwhile there is a new SWAMI kit which sounds great.

I live in the UK and use an Apple Mac.  I have two questions for users i would really appreciate an answer to.
1)  I am an O (and really getting into Coconut oil, hence the return to this site)
2)  I never established my secretor type
3)  If I buy the SWAMI software will it be important to know my secretor type
4)  Does the software update naturally and without further cost?


Many thanks for any help in this matter.

3) secretor type is not needed but is something you should plan on determining. Especially if you want coconut oil.
4) It has to this point and for the foreseeable future, but there are no guarantees.

Been buying this for years!  It's fantastic.  I don't even THINK about coconut oil since it's a complete avoid for me....
even though that is hard as now all mfg's are putting into anything considered a health food item.

I keep 3 kinds of oils on hand:

Rice Bran Oil for high heat cooking
Olive Oil for low heat cooking
Walnut Oil for my salad dressings and adding to protein shakes

Interesting because coconut oil is a superfood on my Swami.  So not bad for all O's.  I was thrilled to see that, as I have a few gallons of it laying around!

Just wondering what makes it good for O nonnie Hunters.....?


Glad I read that. Guess I have to break down & buy the swami book. Or is there a type food type base resource for that..?

IG and TU,

until you guys run a swami and find out more about your individuality, like secretor status, variables, health history will you know if right or better avoid.

does epigenotoxic ring a bell?

other biochemical explanation you might get  as well, so here s a quote by Dr D for those skeptical:
Quoted Text
"In English:

Some people don't do as well as others running a soap through their bile ducts."


''Just follow the book, don't look for magic fixes to get you off the hook. Do the work.'' Dr.D.'98

SWAMI is a  computer program that computes a personalized diet after you give it some information about yourself: the measurements used to determine genotype plus some family and personal health history. SWAMI will compute a slightly different diet for each person. It costs about $70, and if you want one for each family member, you need to buy separate ones for each person. After you've run the SWAMI report, you can save the information on a PDF file to print out and/or view on your computer.
