Quoted from Lola


are you familiar with the method or process and chemicals used to decaffeinate?


Good point. I know that I always buy swiss water process decaf and my jobs have had that too, but the ever-popular Starbucks uses formaldehyde! I'm not drinking any coffee now!

I'm discovering, as I mentioned in another thread, that certain dairy products have been affecting my breathing. My asthma, which had gotten worse during the Teacher diet and then somewhat better over time, is now much better with my SWAMI! Then, I ended up eating what I thought might be a neutral cheese and my asthma kicked up again the next day. I didn't connect the 2 until I had eaten the cheese another day--more of it--and the asthma was worse!

I have cold feet frequently, and it is summer time in India.. could it be because of hypothyrodism?


Do you eat sea vegetables when you eat soy foods?  Our bodies need a lot of
iodine.

Use coconut oil?

Cold hands and feet might be because of hypothyroidism...but it could also be
that you have low iron.

Favism is another possibility. Candida is a possibility. There are a lot of things.

Just start eating alkaline for your GTD (high vegetables, high fruit, soy too - just more of those than carbohydrates, dairy, and protein) and it should pass.

Maybe it relates to fatty acids. Perhaps you need more omega-3 fatty acids or fish in your diet.

I tried out gluten-free oats (Bob's Red Mill) hoping they'd be okay for me and they weren't. I ended up with nerve issues. I didn't feel much in the way of digestive issues, but with me, gluten didn't cause a lot. Only now that I'm gluten free, I do sometimes get some really uncomfortable symptoms (other than my nerve problems). Before I went gluten free, I started do discover than wheat and oats in my skin care and cosmetics began causing problems.

Anyway, with SWAMI, I can eat buckwheat and amaranth as diamond superfoods. I've never made kasha, but do make a buckwheat hot cereal and use the flour.

I am new to the genotype diet so have lots to learn, I have tried to follow the A type diet, but haven't been successful at losing weight or actually feeling a lot better. I have fibromyalgia and do know that I cannot eat anything in the nightshade family without being in a great deal of pain.  I am a Teacher and see discrepancies with the A diet and Teacher diet, so that is probably one of the problems. I also have celiacs, so have to watch gluten. I've been unable to eat dairy for many years and am 'afraid' to try it.  I am looking for support from
those who are more experienced.  Thanks, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne -  Welcome!

It sounds like you already have a full understanding of this, but it never hurts to get confirmation that others have felt the confusion as well  

The BTD is based on your blood type (along with secretor status) and is designed to maintain your health and address general issues that are probable for people with that blood type.

The GTD is based on many genetic factors and the health probabilities associated with those factors. It is designed to do some repair work and then reprogram your genetic tendencies based on the probabilities associated with these particular physical factors.

Please don't try and combine the two different diets!!! They are very different from one another, and confusion arises if you want to reconcile the two objectives into one.

I puzzled and puzzled over this, and then just decided that Dr. D and his wonderfully sophisticated computer programs know a lot more than I do  

Somebody else will soon chime in and give you a perspective on their experiences with your specific issues - sorry, I can't help with those. I don't know much about celiacs, but as far as the dairy goes, maybe you were having problems with certain dairy items, not realizing it wasn't all dairy. I suggest this only because I'm finding out I've been having a reaction to gouda. Just gouda...hmmm

If you suspect that you're lactose sensitive or intolerant, as well as celiac, you may want to consider getting a SWAMI. With that program, you will receive an individualized diet, just for you, that takes those issues into account.

Keep perusing these forums and asking questions - you'll find lots of support and answers form some very knowledgeable people

Hi Yvonne - SWAMI is really fantastic!!! You know how the GenoType takes a bunch of information and puts you in a classification? Well SWAMI takes even more lots more and runs you through a computer matrix system. The result is an individual diet, designed just for you. You'll notice when you look around the forums, we all seem to have different food options, even though we may be the same blood type or geno type - that's SWAMI! A diet as individual as you are  

When you purchase a SWAMI, what you receive in the mail is an access code, then you go online and it has you enter a bunch of information - some is time-locked, some you can go back and change again and again as you gather the goods. It asks for your personal health history, family medical history, that kind of thing. It has room for tons more information that you probably won't know, but that's okay, whatever you input will be enough, so don't feel like you won't get the full benefit because you have to leave a lot of blanks.

This is an example SWAMI : It's very sophistacted, but extremely easy to use. I was completely intimidated at first, but it turned out to be a lot of fun!

Welcome Yvonne!

I started years ago with the blood type diet and just eased into it slowly. I went on to the genotype diet and began to lose weight without trying. After suffering from specific health issues (sinus) I got a swami. It was the best investment. I know I feel great when I stick with it and I can feel pretty bad when I stray!
Good luck on your personal journey.
