I think my only hope now is to fly out to CT and see Dr. D personally if I'm ever going to get the serotyping panel done.  Three days?  Really?  He will see me for that long a period of time?  His site is very short on details.  I can imagine the cost of flight, hotel, medical costs, etc. will be prohibitive.  I'm thinking around 4-5K easily.  Got 3 kids in college on not so great of incomes.  

Can we start a "Send Adam to Dr. D" fund, please?  


Why not combine your visit with the conference? You would get the benefit of hearing Dr. D'Adamo speak and getting certified. Yes you have the conference expense but it is all part of the package. I think your numbers are a bit high on the cost of the visit. If I can get my DH to finish the basement I would always open my home to visitors. I do live about 1 hour from the office in NY.

You make your appointment at the same time as the conference occurs in May.


Cocky and Dr. D are friends, she must have visited his clinic as a practitioner as well as had a personal visit with him.. right Cocky?

People come from all over the world to see him, they spend the money on what is important to them.

Don't make an appointment then until I see if I can get mine.  

Adam, you might try the U of B shift if you are interested in saving some money. The 3 days would be for travel. Get there the day before for a cushion, stay the night after just to avoid travel stress. 2 nights at a hotel, plane ticket, transportation to/from airport, and I think U of B was around $200 (call and ask-- also they book up quickly). I would think you could get the whole thing done for under $1000 (depending on what you like to eat-- ha.).

If Andrea gets her basement done, much less.  
She could rent a room and her cooking would be worth it alone, not to mention the great company.

go by the strength test in the back of your book, if you haven t got a swami to compute your GT for you

try finding out more about yourself, like secretor status, subtype and MN.....
to target your specific GT

SWAMI made me a Teacher but it all depends on having input the correct measurements. I already have secretor status and will get other subtyping etc done in a couple of months. I am seeing a practitioner on Monday to check all my measurements so that will help to confirm things for me.

Many times I think I might be an explorer also.....going through a journey like Cristina did. When I get my SWAMI I will know for sure. If anything, I think I am a split between Teacher and Explorer.

mmm  ... Cristina got her Swami and still not sure what to call herself   but she loves her Swami because the switching between one or other food lists, it is done with purpose and not by chance!!!  That is the difference between a guided tour with optional safe pathways and being lost in a dangerous maze!!!   Get your Swami ...

Good advice, Cristina! I am trying to get my serotyping done first so I will know if I am A1 or A2 and be able to enter that in my SWAMI.

Why what evidence?
It's certainly worth knowing.



I have no idea what I meant when I wrote that question to you Chandon... but I am now wondering if you got your A1 A2 typed anyway?

I would like to know how many A's know their A1 or A2 status, also? And...are more teachers A2 , warriors A1 and explorers either one?
I am getting my Swami this month but do not have my serotyping done yet.
I just wonder how much of a difference it will make?

I know mine (A1). It has been useful in my family, as my sister being A2 and enjoying red meat more than I would countenance, I do not feel so bad about her, knowing that a bit of meat seems to be ok for A2. But as others keep saying, do the swami, enter all the info. and bingo, there is your advice.

Yes Andrea, Dr. D. and I are friends   I visited his clinic back then in Stamford in september 2001. Already 10 years ago...
I arrived on the night of 10th September at JFK. The day after the TwinTowers tragedy took place. It was a memorable visit. I will never ever forget it. I stayed for 3 weeks with dear BTDfriends. And yes, I wanted to learn more about the BTD. Then we had no GTD yet..   Now I know some characteristics of Peter's reaction to a client that I can relate to Warriors traits..
It was fun and I learnt a lot! And Dr. D. is a funny guy and a sweet doc to his patients!!

Since then I have had with intervals clients from Belgium and Germany who saw my name on the IFHI site and visited me for a consultation.

ExplorerinNM,
Welcome!
Type A can only be warrior, teacher or explorer. Only O's or B's can be gatherers.

I just found the genotype book here in French. That will take me some time with that to figure out what I am. A good way to practice my french though.

I got the genotype book and it said I was Teacher. It didn't sit quite right with me so I went very quickly onto swami, which typed me as an Explorer. Feeling much better now

I'm so in the zone on my SWAMI Teacher diet right now it is so amazingly great.  Started the day with Mr. Itaru's Green Tea, Catalyst, and Methyl B12.  Then a 40 minute workout at the gym, driving through pouring rain to get there.  Post-workout shake of Soymilk, Protein Blend Powder A, Peanut Butter, Harmonia Deluxe, Deflect, Activator, Trehalose, Blueberries, and Pineapple.  Sipped that slowly and took a Flax Oil with some water.  

Now sitting here at work feeling so relaxed and healthy.  Folks, all it takes is a little effort and a "want to" attitude.
