Would whole meal or whole grain breads be a neutral for teachers?


read ingredients always, or make your own type focaccia breads using compliant whole grains from your list.

There is a probiotic drink called Yakult.


again read ingredients.....
the yakult down here is full of questionable sweetener so always check....
you might want to look into polyflora for your type

Anything with cream, or milk in it that is not fermented or unpasteurized would be a BAD IDEA TO CONSUME. Stay away from probiotic things like that. Stick with yogurt, brewer's yeast, ghee, and honey (prebiotic I guess). However as I found out those are slightly temporary in some cases. The introduction of them is what is the most important, but sometimes continuing use has a good affect. For me my Swami recommends yogurt highly, which is good because I like to eat it a lot, with peanut butter (diamond as well for me), and some fruit (blueberry and cranberry diamonds, dried kind for yogurt).

I am sinewy. I am just overweight and have a big chest, wide pelvic bone. I wonder if my lungs and heart are more powerful, I would be willing to bet they are a little above normal. I have a capacity for running and some things like that beyond a lot of Hunters and Nomads, I mean leave them in the dust! The situation really varies though, I am better at some things and not at others. A slight incline on a hill with a bike I will rock their world. (no idea why, had a previously pro level bike racer drop back off me before and I was fat)

It's interesting and encouraging for me to note that there is such a large number of Teachers with negative blood types, non sinewy and non andric like myself.



I'm rh positive, non andric and non sinewy. I wonder how many Teachers fit this
profile.

but tell me something, chelation is all about taking just metals out of the body or minerals/metals both ?

what I read and understood is that , few organic atoms bind with minerals/metals atoms, activate immune system to 'diffuse' them and flush them out of the body...

is there any possibility of overdoing chelation and flushing out essential minerals/metals out of the body?

I have a feeling it is more common among women. I have met a few women that I am pretty sure are Teachers and several of them appear to not be andric or sinewy. In fact even the andric ones are not too sinewy.

I see a great similarity between Genotype classification of the body and Ayurveda [ancient indian science of healing] classification. Ayurveda, centuries ago, classified body as one of the 6 types or doshas [3 main doshas and 3 subtypes made up of a combination of doshas]. Vata, Pitta, kapha, Vata-pitta, Vata-Kapha, Pitta-Kapha.
It could be like this :
Vata - teachers
pitta - hunter
Kapha - gatherer
Vata-kapha - nomad
Vata-pitta - explorer
pitta-kapha - warrior

if this theory holds true, identifying teachers is very easy. Teachers [vata dosha] tend to have an 'airy' mind. one moment i am thinking of something, another moment thinking of completely different. mind that moves swiftly and fast like air. lack of concentration due to excess of air element in the body. teachers tend to have nervous system disorders, due to overuse. In ayurveda, it is said that the root cause of all digestive problems is the nervous system disorders. Serotonin could be the possible 'connection' between brain and digestive system. 90% of the total serotonin made in brain is found in colon !!! It could be that any mood swing in the brain affects the serotonin level in the colon.
"Serotonin in the gut plays a role in peristalsis, smooth muscle contraction and mucosal secretions." from DIGESTIVE WELLNESS by lipnski

check out this link to know more about vata type people :
http://www.ayurbalance.com/explore_vata.htm

in my understanding, vata type people tends to have low serotonin levels.

Cilantro and other natural nutrients that assist in chelation of heavy metals appears to be safe.

in basic ayurveda web articles and books, you will see mentioning of only 3 types of bodies vata, pitta, kapha.
but in Advance level books, classification is widened and 6 types of bodies, like I said before, are mentioned..

is it possible that low serotonin level, could hamper the transmission of nerves from one part to another part of the brain and Teacher get 'stuck' with one mood [frequently bad] ?

Me too. I am non-andric nor am I sinewy--although at my ideal weight, I might have some wrist tendons showing. I also have a long face and am a "pear."

My mother always said she has "sturdy" legs--and so do I. She is built quit a bit like me, but I tend to gain more in the front and back (eg, thighs) whereas she might get a little wider. She is an O--but really, we are quite similar in build. She is also artistic to some degree and likes yoga--but she sees no point to the tai chi they teach at her assisted living place.

Katsy and Chandon, I share your same body type...but consider that this is the first
time in our lives, we've had the opportunity to be eating as Teachers....so perhaps
in time, our bodies are going to change to fit the physical and emotional profile of a more balanced Teacher.

And kawalkx15, the same principle might apply to your theory of low serotonin levels hampering the brains of Teachers and getting us "stuck" in a low mood.  We have
the potential for seeing more positive emotional changes that more closely resemble
a balanced Teacher as we keep eating this way and re-set our genetics.

I'm still new to the teachers diet so I'd like to ask a couple of questions if I may.

Firstly with ghee. It's listed in the oils and fats as 3 to 6 times a week and in the dairy section as "as desired". Which on is right? And does this mean that if I have a tablespoon of ghee in the morning I have then had my daily oil allowance or can I still have a table spoon of olive oil on top of the ghee?

With Honey being a diamond in the condiments and additives it is to be "used as needed". Would 4 table spoons of honey a day be too much?

Lastly we use a breadmaker to make our own bread. There are 2 ingredients that I am having trouble substituting. I am asked to use 2 1/2 table spoons of sugar. I know I can use honey but the bread doesn't seem to rise as much (maybe I should add more bakers yeast than required as it is a superfood), I use brown sugar which I know is a toxin but I rightly or wrongly think to myself, Oh well its  2 1/2 tablespoons but the loaf with last me a week so it's not so bad?

I also have to use some kind of milk powder with the mix. I used to use whey protein powder when I was an explorer/warrior. I now have 2 1/2 tablespoon of just plain whey powder. I wonder if there is a difference between whey powder and whey protein powder? Does anyone know of any other powder subtitue for the bread mix?

by bakers yeast, brewer s yeast is the one to use, not the yeast used for baking bread......there is a difference.

the yeast used for baking is different.

Quoted Text
Brewer's yeast is made from a one-celled fungus called Saccharomyces cerevisiae and is used in making beer. It also can be grown specifically to make nutritional supplements. Brewer's yeast is a rich source of minerals -- particularly chromium, an essential trace mineral that helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels; selenium; protein; and the B-complex vitamins. It tastes bitter and should not be confused with baker's yeast, nutritional yeast, or torula yeast; all those types of yeast are low in chromium. Brewer's yeast has been used for years as a nutritional supplement.

This is interesting because I find honey has next to no affect on blood sugar for me. It might feed my candida more however.

Now eating carbohydrates however can have much larger affect. They can raise my blood sugar but also feed and spawn more candida too if consumed too much without strong counter active things like veggies and fruit. Fruit sometimes can influence it if I have been eating meat, but never actually raise it by itself.

The glycemic factor in Teachers seems to have nothing to do with calories or amount of sugar, but rather how it will interact with the body/illness. At least that is my finding so far. It is not just due to my body but rather the people that are Teachers and find it is impossible to gain weight.
