Teachers were requesting a specific thread to discuss issues related to their diet.

So, here it is...ready to go....feel free to chat away!

All blood types and genotypes are more than welcome to come here and post....
and learn from Teachers or share with us but I want to say something about my one week as a Teacher... A Teacher with a SWAMI.

As I've said before on other threads, I spent 18 months (by measuring incorrectly) as a Warrior.

I am a Teacher after measuring correctly.

So for about a year on the Warrior diet I was walking around in a state of anxiety....I was
taking so many supplements like Tranquility Base and Cortiguard and anything NAP sold so
I could feel calm.  I bought a lot of CDs to meditate.....I learned all sorts of deep breathing
exercises.....I was doing yoga...The problem with all of this is that I was taking Warrior supplements and focusing on issues that weren't Teacher related.  And nothing I was doing
was working from hour to hour.

And so, I went to see an acupuncturist in May. She kept telling me my stomach meridian was stagnant.. put needles in my head, played soft music and the aromas of herbs in the room would make me calm....I'd be calm leaving..calm driving home..I kept waiting for the calm to stay
with me.... However, hours later, I'd be home and start hyperventilating again.

My acupuncturist has been in China for the past 3 weeks...which almost gave me a nervous
breakdown when she told me a day before she was going with no advanced notice that she'd be back mid August...I had only seen her 8 times and wasn't ready for her to leave me "hanging".

Fast forward to last week...when I got my husband to help me measure myself so I could enter
information into the SWAMI.... gift I got (for trying three months of Warrior supplements).

And to my shock and surprise, my measurements call me a Teacher.

At first, I wasn't believing this...because although I measure as a Teacher, I don't see huge
bulging tendons on my wrist.  I mean, they're subtle on my wrists but the rest of my body isn't showing protruding tendons...(the way I perceive it should look)

But I wanted to believe I was a Teacher and start the diet...I ordered all the NAP products suggested for me....High on the list with many more stars than others is the Teacher Genotype supplements.  Remember, I'd been taking Warrior supplements and eating Warrior foods.

I wake two mornings later and my Teacher supplements are at my front door.  I pop down
one of each....I start my breakfast off in a completely different direction.  Before this, egg
whites were emphasized for me....but I start my day with two whole eggs cooked in ghee and
for the first time, coconut oil.  I am in taste bud heaven with the coconut oil.

I find some blueberries and add yogurt to them...This is my breakfast.  I wait for results.
Too soon.

Lunch that first day was anything I could find in the refrigerator that matched anything on my
diamond list....Too soon to even thing of geno harmonic foods.

I head for the health food store....load up my cart with lots of diamond fruits and veggies..

It's not so much of a major drastic change in the way I was eating before...It's just that new
foods are slowly making me feel different.

I notice within about 48 hours that my heart isn't racing.  I'm not hyperventilating when I lie
down to go to sleep. I don't wake up in the middle of the night having to do alternate
nostril breathing.

Something shifted in my nervous system within a mere 48 hours on the right diet that hadn't happened to me when I was on the Warrior diet...Not that the Warrior diet causes anxiety in
Warriors...but it might in a Teacher, or at least it did with me.

See what the right diet can do?  Even in 48 hours?  

I'm still blown away...because the real benefits of eating the right foods and taking the
right supplements are probably somewhere far deeper than what I can see or feel....but the immediate effects I had were feeling calmer and more centered...My breathing slowed
down naturally....Before last week, taking a deep breath was too easy and letting out the air
was too difficult.  It's all balanced now.

I am surely a happier camper!

That's great Chloe. I was wondering if you had seen some benefits. I have felt some major benefits in terms of my digestion as that had REALLY worsened even though I was eating lots of fiber-rich food to avoid getting diverticulitis again (which I had 2 years ago).

Like you, around 18 months ago, I mistyped myself as an Explorer. While I was eating a lot of turkey, a diamond food for a Teacher, I was also eating a lot of Explorer cheeses. I also wasn't fully committed to the Explorer diet and so was drinking milk, eating some sugar, etc. But even though I am religious about being gluten-free, I was finding that my digestion was simply messed up to the point that I thought I had developed diverticulitis again. The specialist I went to said it was really spasm and to take some antispasmodic drug. Well, when I read about the side effects, my husband and I both agreed it sounded like an awful choice. At that time, while being much more compliant on the Explorer diet for a couple of weeks, I wasn't losing and definitely wasn't feeling well, so I decided to revisit what type I am. I identified an error I had made in measuring myself and was really a Teacher, which fits me so well in terms of personality and also health concerns. (I had cancer almost 10 years ago.) Like you, I don't have distinct tendons--not like my Dad who was likely a Teacher too.

Another thing that has been going on is that even though I am gluten free and have had some healing in my nerves (I get neuropathy from my celiac disease), my feet had been bothering me more this year. When going to NYC in April, my feet hurt me more than I expected and than had happened in previous visits. My hands have also felt weaker. I have to say that it appears my nerves are getting stronger. This weekend, my sister and husband said their feet hurt when we were at a crafts fair on our feet for a long time, but I had to say that mine didn't! I am feeling sensations throughout my body that are in line with that, as I have gone through the process of nerves healing when I went gluten free 4 years ago.

Now that you mention it, I was experiencing hyperventilation at night--essentially panic attacks--quite a bit in the last couple of years. I can't remember the last time that happened. And I have been sleeping rather deeply.

So I continue to improve. I'm in my 7th week of the teacher diet.

I do plan to get the SWAMIXpress in the near future. It sounds great.

You sound like you're making great progress in just 7 weeks.  Are you taking
the Teacher supplements?  I find they feel right to me...whereas the Warrior supplements still left me deficient in the nutrients I needed most.

Teachers are supposed to be calm by nature, which is what I believe the Teacher diet
did for me in just a week.........and when I realize that balanced Teachers are calm
by nature and have a positive outlook on life, it was for sure I was walking around
as unbalanced as a Teacher could possibly get!

It took me close to a year to heal my nerve pain...horribly severe...could barely
walk up or down a flight of stairs...I'll be off gluten 3 years this October...Don't
have nerve pain anymore..Still think my gut has a way to go...I need Teacher foods!

I'm curious, how many whorl fingerprints do you have?

My nerve issues are now more weakness than any pain. I think a certain amount of nerve issues were due to the celiac disease, but clearly my intestinal issues were worsening recently and so I have ended up with additional nerve issues. It's easy how things can be happening and we just get used to it, but it's nice to know there are ways to improve things. I'm glad your nerve issues cleared up.

I haven't taken the Teacher supplements but am getting most what is recommended in the book through other supplements. I will probably add one of them.

I haven't done the fingerprinting, but just looking at them, I think I just have 2 and the remainder are loops. I'll get the genotyping kit when I get the SWAMI. I know I want to check whether I'm a supertaster.

I wanted to share this.  I suppose if you've read your SWAMI you'd have seen it, but
it stood out just now as I was going through my SWAMI again.

I lost 3 pounds on the Teacher diet in a week...and I've just realized that it's mostly
likely a weight loss from toxicity.   Not that I've eaten meat in a long long while but
on occasion my son's famous spare ribs would wind up on my plate....(maybe twice
a year, however my gut is my weakest link anyway)

So, Dr. says this about our digestion.

The Teacher Diet and Digestion

Their ancient heritage of farmers has genetically disposed Teachers to metabolize a wide variety of fresh foods, grains and seafood. Conversely, they lack the enzymes to properly digest and metabolize animal fat. The ideal Teacher diet is vegetable and seafood based, with small amounts of other low-fat proteins. Unlike the other GenoTypes that gain weight from excess calories or inadequate exercise, Teachers gain weight from excess toxicity. When their diets are excessively meat based, they gradually develop a buildup of bacteria in the digestive tract, which can act as a powerful block on their metabolism and immune system. The result is a range of stomach and intestinal problems, including gastritis, which causes extreme discomfort in the upper abdomen, nausea, and in severe cases dark bloody stools. The wild bird that best personifies the character of the Teacher is the crane. In addition to being great fishing birds, cranes perch for lengths of time on one leg.

I don't yet know that I am a teacher - I'm waiting for my book and Taster test to arrive... but when I read descriptions of the health issues of Teachers, so many of them sound like me.

Is it common for Teachers to have nerve problems, no matter what the cause? I have chronic, active Shingles with nerve/muscle damage all on my left side.

I finally did all the measurements (husband always too busy; got my mom to measure me yesterday), and found out that I'm a teacher. Which is what Ribbit guessed for me when I asked her last time I saw her. Haven't read further in the book to see what that means for me, but I'll be following this thread and seeing what happens as I get into the teacher foods. Curious to see what has changed for avoids & beneficials from plain ol' Type A....

I think the toxicity issue would explain why when I went from diet to diet, I would lose a little for a couple of weeks and then find weight loss would stall. I probably needed more protein than I was getting on the type A diet--although I should have eaten more fish to solve the problem! So then I moved from diet to diet that had more protein and either fewer carbs or low-glycemic carbs, but never found anything was right. The Teacher diet includes enough protein for me and it seems like the right kinds for me. For quite a while after doing the A diet, I was eating a diet with more cheese, but I was probably having quite a lot of the wrong cheeses for me. I also was deemphasizing eggs. I wasn't eating much soy, but I still wasn't including milk. I have never eaten much beef or pork since first trying the A diet (about 10 years ago)--nor really before that--and knew I should keep my proteins "light." Still, I never found the right balance. It seems quite right with the Teacher plan.

I do remember that the first time I tried the A diet, which I only did very briefly before trying Weight Watchers and then returning to it more earnestly around a year later, I lost 3 pounds right away. I couldn't figure out what I had done to have that happen. Maybe it was a release of toxins.

I'm not sure if nerve problems are often a problem for the Teacher, but I would think that if our type is marked by digestion problems and we are thus assimilating nutrients poorly, our nerves could really suffer over time. I have a feeling that my father, who passed away last year from cancer and who was rather lanky/sinewy, was a Teacher. I know his blood type was A. He ended up with neuropathy in the later years of his life. It's possible he had celiac disease like me, but also it's possible that his lifetime of eating a SAD (where his wife made beef quite regularly) would end up affecting his digestion and, potentially in turn, his nerves. Someone on my husband's side of the family was built the same way as my dad and he too had neuropathy. Neither one had diabetes so the cause of the nerve problems was unknown. My Dad did develop Bell's Palsy a few months before he died. He was 87 and was battling prostate cancer for more than 20 years (though it was in remission on and off for quite a while).

Welcome Teacher...I'll tell you what changes to expect from the type A diet to the
Teacher diet......You get to go to cheese heaven, that's what!

But alas, my SWAMI removed a lot of those cheeses for me...

Are you going to get SWAMI'D?

Continuing to eat gluten grains if you've got celiac can lead to nerve problems.
It happened to me......and I lived with sciatica for over a year before it slowly went
away when I stopped eating gluten.

I was starting to feel the cheese was setting off a slight twinge of nerve pain in my right leg again, so I quit eating it after a week of thinking I was going to tolerate it.......but I also got other strange symptoms from the dairy...little bumps
on my butt....on my upper chest....back ache...stiff hips...fluid retention...and when I decided not to eat dairy, I got a withdrawal headache. Plus two days off dairy
and I was peeing non stop.  It's when I saw I lost 3 pounds.  I hold onto fluid
when a food is causing toxicity in my body.

So back to that toxicity issue.  I think it can come from any food you don't tolerate.
Doesn't mean that not tolerating something now that's good for a Teacher wouldn't
change for the better once our guts are healed.

Ribbit had gluten and dairy issues and can eat them now..

That's a hopeful sign.

Do all of you have a lot of white lines?

I read in another thread that the vertical lines aren't indicative of gut issues, but the horizontal ones are. I do have some horizontal ones. I'm not sure if I have a lot or not. I haven't done the fingerprinting yet.

I'm still noticing my feet feeling stronger at the same time that I am noticing less and less irritation in the left side of my colon, which had been very irritated right before starting the diet. As I had mentioned before, I was thinking I was developing diverticulitis, although my doctor said it was spasm. The CT scan showed distention not diverticulitis, but I do feel there could have been an infection brewing, just as one would get with diverticulitis, but in the area of the distention. It's such a relief that all of this is resolving.

Are you going to get SWAMI'D?


I'm thinking about it. I'd like to, but at $70, it's a lower priority for me now. After reading the list of things taken away from me that I could have on the plain BTD, I'd like to get SWAMI'd just to see what got added back. Of course, even more might get taken away...  

Looking at the list of new avoids -- no CHOCOLATE??? stands out the most -- I was regretting reading the book and doing the measurements at all!   Also, since my teeth "shovel", I was figuring I'd be one of those rare A's that could eat beef. Now I can't even eat chicken!! And I lost corn & popcorn too??

Well, I'll probably feel better about it when I go on it strong for the 3-6 months, and then I can add back in some of the other things. I do have white lines, so I know I need some healing, even though I'm pretty good at rollin' with the punches.

I have some white lines. Not sure if it was due to sloppy fingerprinting (too much ink) or worn-out fingerprints, but they were hard to read. I did see *some* white lines but not "a lot."

Mine were impossible to read from a printing, due to white lines, but I used a magnifying glass to see some of them and for the really difficult ones, held my fingers up to a 10x magnifying mirror and was able to determine the amount of whorls I had. I still have two fingers I can't really read at all..The prints seem to be
totally gone.

Why can we have soy and soy products, but not soy milk? What if it's home-made soy milk, which is basically soy flour boiled in water?

P.s. -- I'm also seriously bummed about the no maple syrup, molasses, or sugar.

This is one thing that is odd to me -- I only have one whorl. In fact, all but one of my 10 fingerprints are loops. Which is not indicative of teacher; but my measurements are.

I guess we are all unique so we might not carry all of the visible characteristics of the genotype. The key things in the advanced typing test tell us how we fit into one of the genotypes in the book; then the other factors that get entered into SWAMI help in creating our own individualized SWAMI diet. So I don't seem that classic, as I am short, pear shaped, and not so sinewy. If I were leaner, I would seem to be more of an ectomorph than I do now. Nevertheless, the diet is helping.

See this is where a SWAMI helps because I could have barley malt as a diamond , (except it's got gluten and I'm gluten intolerant)...And molasses, maple
syrup and agave are neutrals.

But honey is a superfood for me...white lines and all.  And black dot sugars
are brown and white sugar, rice syrup, dextrose and fructose, although they're
not something I'd regularly be eating anyway.  My diet is really devoid of
concentrated sugars.  Dates are great for sugar cravings.  Easy to soak dates
to soften then...and then mix them with some almond or peanut butter..And
I've discovered that carob mixed and rolled into balls is almost like eating healthy
candy!

I lent my mom my book today, figuring that since I have my SWAMI I wouldn't really need it, and that it would be really good for her.  We measured her as a teacher and the descriptions fit, but I thought her carbohydrate list had a couple of wheat products as superfoods.  Am I not remembering correctly?  It's really bugging me.  Her fingerprints are so bad you can't tell she even has any by looking at her fingers!  The only ridge detail you can see at all is on the sides of her finger pads and she's got zillions of horizontal lines all over her fingertips.  She can't make any prints on paper, but if you look at he fingertips after they've been inked you can see that a couple have whorls on them, if you look really closely in the light.  It was scary!!!  If this is caused by gluten, why would there be any acceptable wheat products allowed at all?  Or am I just remembering the list incorrectly?

Thanks, Lola.  So, she should avoid ALL wheat products?  After her gut is healed should she be able to eat the ones on the superfoods list, or should she just avoid them forever?
