Quoted from Lola
I d let gluten rest and find her compliant GF substitutes.....
check deflect, ara, intrinsa, polyflora to heal all the damage done to her gut.


I just wanted to add that the Teacher Activator formula has specific probiotics in it
that are most like to help the Teacher's gut....and that Polyflora A although great
for type As was available before the GTD was created. So I just think that
the most appropriate probiotics for a Teacher is in that Activator supplement,
even though Polyflora A might be helpful.

I felt that after a week taking the Teacher Supplements, my stomach felt a lot better.

I just need a confirmation here:  oatmeal is a neutral, right?

I make mine from steel cut oats and I mix it with fresh blueberries.  I love a nice, warm cereal in the morning.

Thanks.

yes it is a neutral for us.  Oat flour and oat bran are superfoods.  I used to cook oat bran for cereal, it tastes great and cooks in a flash.  

When I make steel cut oats, I put them in the rice cooker the night before and ask it to have them ready for me in the morning.  

All of the oat things are diamonds on my swami, so I will have to start eating them more often again.  It will be nice in the winter.

I don't have any whorls in my fingerprints at all, which was one reason I bypassed teacher on my first read-through, but I already had a cancer scare at age 37 -- a fast-growing precancerous lesion on my arm. At least I think it was pre-cancerous; the doctor did not actually tell me, he just said it was "urgent" to get it removed, and told me to carefully check every month for other lesions.

I also don't have any white lines. I thought I did, but it turned out to be peeling skin on my thumb. Does this mean I can tolerate gluten?

I'm wondering if you could be an Explorer...Maybe you should find out your
secretor status.  Are you left handed?  Do you know if you're rh positive or negative?

Well, I find that my thumb peels if I touch cat food (or other food) that has gluten. It took years to figure out that it was gluten that caused it to peel. Also, certain paper towels have gluten and cause it. That's not to say that your peeling has to do with gluten. It is just possible. I have celiac disease. I don't think I have a ton of white lines, but maybe I used to have more. I eat a completely gluten-free diet and have for about 4 years (of course, sometimes I accidentally consume a little gluten). I think the white lines can relate to more than gluten. I had cancer at age 35 and have 2 whorls. It sounds like more whorls mean a higher risk of breast cancer in particular.

I am A-Positive.

Can you be a Type A and be an Explorer? Nothing about my measurements and answers fit Explorer... but I will re-check and re-read, just in case.

The peeling area on my thumb is right next to my nail. It has been hardening and re-peeling down to blood almost every other day. It's really bugging me, so I keep nattering at it. I can't figure out what it is, but it is a new development, so probably not gluten-related.

Yes

When you look at the advanced tables in the back of the book,
would being a secretor or nonsecretor switch you GenoType?

It may be that you are teacher either way.

I find that if I don't eat enough protein I can get some peeling near the cuticles. Also, it's possible to get a fungal infection near the nail, especially if the cuticles are not healthy. For me, the gluten issue makes the area itchy too.

Is your torso longer than your leg? (or visa versa)

Are your index fingers longer than your ring? (or visa versa; or inverted hand to hand--one of each)

I am a teacher: A+.  I have no whorls, but my torso is longer, my tendons show, i have inverted hand to hand finger measurements, the extra molar cusp...  I don't have the "andric" shape according to the legs, but I have small hips which I believe fits the andric type criteria.

I had a hard time measuring the legs--it is hard to discern just where the bone is on the side AND when the knee is in a 45 degree angle, the groove of the kneecap is hard to find as well, but given the finger measurements for an A+ with a longer torso, it doesn't matter.

It would be nice if there were somewhere to go with experienced measurers.

I am pretty sure I am a teacher.  Like I said, I have a longer torso and my index is longer on one hand and shorter on the other; that pretty much nails it for an A+.

However, if I had to rely on the other measurements, it would be difficult (and I did watch the measurement videos).

my problems with the leg measurements are:  when you do find the bone on the outside edge, below the knee, it is hard to discern exactly where to start the measuring tape.  I find the best way to do it is to draw a small circle around the bone and then put a dot in the center of the circle.

As far as the kneecap thing:  I find the best way is to extend your leg out in front of you and then relax it.  With your two thumbs, locate the ridge of the kneecap and then slide the edges of your thumbs to the edges of the kneecap and then, keeping your thumbs in place" put your leg in the position to measure (on the floor at a 45 degree angle) -- have someone mark the line where your thumbs are (at the edge of the kneecap) and then measure.

good luck

Teachers, I hope many of you catch this post and trust that what I'm sharing with
you is the absolute truth.....After two weeks eating as a Teacher,
I'm starting to see the light...... Much is very subtle change..but still it's change for the better.  I'm starting to feel different..think differently...being motivated by an internal inner voice that is attempting to champion my cause.

This is vastly different from how I felt just two short weeks ago!

I guess many of you know that I'm a newbie Teacher having mistyped myself
as a Warrior and followed the wrong diet for 18 months.  Waiting patiently for results, eating the wrong foods and taking the wrong supplements which left me feeling disappointed about my poor results...Following the wrong diet for so long  and never really experiencing any of the benefits of the right genotype diet, I was left with the attitude that perhaps the entire concept of genotyping was a fantasy based on  a lot of wishful thinking.  And given my age, (not that time is
running out) but who wants to waste time when they're reaching towards
better health!

Well, I'm here to tell you that I'm really starting to notice a difference in just 2
short weeks.

I didn't realize that this would be a lifestyle....Well, yes I did, but I didn't realize that each suggestion given, from the calming exercises of tai chi or yoga or meditation
would need to be incorporated as diligently as the foods..  The Warrior diet made me feel very anxious,
unabalanced and irritable for way too long....and now what  I needed most was
all the the tools I could find to turn this around.

Many days were confusing...not having the right foods in the house....being almost angry
at seeing foods like mackerel on my fish list....where to find it....why do I have to find
it....talking to myself....arguing with myself....many days saying "I don't want to do this
at all"....only to wake up the next day and go back to work trying to become
a better Teacher.

Allergy testing a decade ago showed me allergic to dairy and eggs.  Do I dare eat
dairy and eggs?  Day #1 on dairy...major headache...stuffy nose.  No, I won't eat
dairy...But dairy is what helps my gut....Back to dairy.

See, between my body/mind and spirit I was juggling more "stuff" than I could possibly
juggle...and then of course my real life...A close friend died...people share
bad news...storms that made our dog upset and vomit for a week...My husband wanting to take me to restaurants that didn't serve any of the foods I wanted to eat...I didn't want to wreck his life while trying to improve my own...Time will tell if he'll let me measure him and inform him he has no choice but to eat for his genotype....That's for another day.

So how does a Teacher stay calm in the middle of real life?

My mind was fighting this while my body kept saying "do it"....

Do it how???  I can't find freakin' mackerel....I can't even find freakin' blackberry juice..
the items that are repeated so often in my geno harmonic food combos..

And then suddenly for some crazy reason, while stuck in a pattern of negative thinking,
something shifted in my mind...something shifted in my body...In just two weeks,
I was now becoming super pro active (although not quite "calm" but could start to see in teensy sound bites just how all the little bits of information would fit together...It's not just finding the right foods.. It's finding the time to relax and meditate and do the calming exercise..and go do it the minute you think you
need to do it....not wait and procrastinate because feeling calm while eating
well is just as important to overall well being as the food itself.  

Today I typed in  a google search  for"canned mackerel"..(given that fish markets
locally didn't have any)
Bingo...Vitalchoice.com...They have it...I want it...I ordered some.....I found blackberry concentrate online...I have been spared from my own negative thinking
simply by making everything I'm doing tie into my one goal...To be more of
a Teacher and reap the benefits of the whole GT program!

And thank you Mayflowers for mentioning chi gong to me....I went on youtube to watch
and try a few moves....so calming.  So perfect for a Teacher....I ordered a book from
Amazon about it to read.....will have to see if there are teachers within my reach...
but for now, I've got a plan...a better roadmap.

Change is so difficult...especially since I was first on the BTD, then the Warrior diet
and now the Teacher diet all in 18 months.  A bit frantic...I wanted to start my
healing....

OK, so back to how this is going....So although I know myself to be "allergic" (which
I'm now doubting in relation to following the GTD because I was tested when I wasn't
eating like a Teacher)....I've now decided "who cares if I'm allergic"....I'm eating what
I'm supposed to be eating...and changing my attitude about the outcome.

You know, how you perceive an outcome makes a huge difference.

I am mentally eating for better health....and as I chew the foods I've chosen from
my superfoods, I'm seeing re-methylation taking place in my body....

It's also a mental process when you make changes....that you agree with your own
goals...that you act as if you're already there....even by saying to yourself "I feel
healthier, stronger.....I am the best me I can be"...Maybe eating like a Teacher
is changing my attitude...I'm supposed to be having a positive outlook on life..

This is the shift that has started to take place in me within the past two weeks.  I
probably was by nature a very calm person when I was a child...but due to all sorts
of external and internal influences, I lost my patience and seemed
to turn on a panic switch when anything went wrong.....I always liked to do
things slowly....but often the pace of real life is just too frantic in a world that
moves too quickly and often doesn't allow the time to find peace and tranquility.
I'm learning to block out time specifically for me.....  Yes, I'm an artist...I do have the soul of an artist...I do appreciate the beauty in people and in things...but often I'm just negative and impatient.... it's easy to morph into some other reality when
everything in your body and mind isn't in  harmony with who you are at your
core...your genotype. (If this is sounding like an informmercial, know that I am not being paid to endorse anything)

I hope you all understand what I'm saying and please share if you feel a switch turn on inside yourselves that allows you to understand how it feels to finally be on the right path, eating the right foods even if some lab told you you're allergic to something. I'm eating cheese and eggs pretty often and if I'm allergic to either of them, I'm not living as if I might be...I'm living as if the right cheeses and eggs are simply my medicine.

More to say at another time.  Just wanted to let Teachers know to anticipate a shift
in consciousness along the way....as we all calm down and feel comfortable standing
in our Teacher shoes.

And just as a PS....If you're on the fence now and haven't found out for sure
that you're a Teacher, SWAMI is more than worth the investment to know for
sure and get a completely customized diet.....and I think the Teacher supplements are so worthwhile......I was taking a whole lot of stuff that was completely wrong for me, things that weren't helping...In the long run, it's cheaper to just take
what you know you really need.

I guess I should have known I was a teacher because my favorite exercises are yoga and tai chi. I've been doing yoga for many, many years, but I became more into it in the last couple of years. I had a lot of stress in my life, so I needed it. Last fall when I had extra time on my hands at work, it dawned on me that I've always wanted to take tai chi and that I MUST find a class. So I did and am so happy that I did. Tai chi is a form of chi gong. Either one is perfect for a teacher. I just got back from my tai chi class tonight. It is amazingly strengthening--as is yoga--and, of course, so relaxing and grounding.

My husband is much more energetic than me--an O most likely. He is encouraging me to get more aerobics in my life, but I am never drawn to it. I am doing some aerobics on a regular basis, but slower/less intensely than he does! And yes, I love meditation.

There is something totally different about following the right genotype diet, as you say. When I was thinking I was an Explorer, I bought some of my foods, but the diet didn't keep my focus because it clearly didn't make me feel better. Boy was my digestion worsening. And I was gradually feeling worse and worse mentally as well. Being compliant in a complete way wasn't something I was drawn to.

I am known for being a very calm person, especially in a work environment, but I was probably driving my husband crazy with my irritability while being on the wrong diet. Now on the Teacher diet, I am motivated to cook a lot, shop for my foods, choose new things for variety, and be compliant. It's easy to stick to it because I become more and more motivated.

Like you, Chloe, I'm really enjoying this lifestyle.

Chloe, your message was very inspiring. Staying away from 'avoids and black dots' really helps a teacher. Its a sort of conversion, I went through. lot of health issues are solved. Still lot more to resolve. I had major constipation problem. I have lot of white lines on all my fingers. Becoming glutten free helped me have regular motion once a day at least.

One thing I thought about last night after reading your post and writing mine is that following the right plan becomes FUN whereas there is no joy in a plan this isn't right. I wonder if other types experience that; I would think so. I love the Teacher foods--is it because of the foods they are or because they are so right for me?

How beautifully said !!!!! gives a practically meaning to a tough medical term - methylation.. made me revise the GTD book...
I think meditation is re-methylation in a way !!!!!!!
I have got an idea, to use guided imagery technique for re-methylation...

I was looking more closely at my fingers and believe I have 4 whorls, not just 2. I haven't done the fingerprinting yet. I have a feeling I don't have SO many white lines. But I do think that just a week ago, I may have had MORE white lines, than now. I may have an inkpad somewhere at home. I'll try to find that and make some prints.

I think I'm feeling a total mental shift for the better and noticed this as my first primary change while following the Teacher diet.  Even for just two weeks...  Is it because the right foods bring balance to both the mind and body and help restore our basic "Teacher" psychological qualities?  Is settling the gut enough to calm the mind? Restore the soul?  Change thoughts and feelings?  I keep thinking about the soul....because it's mentioned that the Teacher nature is to have the soul of an artist and to have a deep relationship
with nature...But I was thinking...to be in the moment means we have to stop and
notice where we find ourselves..to recognize that we are in this very moment
and that in this very moment, all is well.  I never could do that before.  And remember that just a mere two weeks, ago, I was eating as a Warrior where the psychological profile referred to those individuals as people who needed to learn to relax....that they were choleric and occasionally bad tempered.  How completely unlike a Teacher...How far away from my soul my body has been!

This is all starting to feel like a transformation to me....Last night I was meditating..when it suddenly occurred to me that I felt grateful...grateful for being in the right place at the right time.....having the teacher appear when I was a student asking for guidance.... being shown the right path...and knowing it felt right.

I really can't wait for all the Teachers to be noticing how they're starting to feel
just like the psychological profile says we should feel when were balanced..
straight out of the GTD book......"At our Teacher's best we
should have a natural exuberance and a calm, steady way of looking at the world."

Is that a great concept? We are going to feel exuberant when balanced!

And we're supposed to have powerful spiritual energy!  Yes, this is exactly what
I want and need in order to be happy!  I am being drawn to all things spiritual
right now!  My soul is leading the way.  I am confident my body will follow the
path.

And I get to eat cheese!

Are we happy to be Teachers or what!

I'd say so! I do feel so much more exuberant. I definitely am drawn to the spiritual and have been much more so in the last couple of years but at the same time a cloud of negativity was hanging over me. I thought it was perhaps that my father was dying and then he passed away, and it was terribly difficult to handle. I also had a job where it almost seemed like then environment was evil. When I found a different job last fall where the atmosphere was totally different, this cloud did seem to lift a little, but I became even more troubled earlier this year. Then, my health seemed worse with my digestion being so terrible, to the point I thought my diverticulitis returned. My feet had begun hurting more and feeling weak. That can really drag one down.

Now I feel like I am healthier and it is freeing, and so I feel my psyche is much more in tune with what it should be.

It's amazing how our diet of cheese, eggs, poultry, fish, and soy/nuts/beans, plus many great fruits, veggies, grains, fats, and other things can make such a difference.

That's great, Chloe, how you are feeling this wonderful transformation.

I was wondering if you were on the A diet consistently before the Warrior diet and what it was like for you.

The "A" diet was a plan I followed just to follow a healthy path....and I didn't stray far for a number of years...And like you Chandon, I had a lot of external issues surrounding me that cast a dark cloud over my head.

I wonder if Dr. D anticipated the wonderful emotional benefits of the Teacher diet
that we are both noticing.

Because I think if you think happy thoughts, your body has to feel happier too!

I'm glad you're doing so well..

Thanks. I'm glad you're seeing such a turn-around as well! That must have been difficult, following the warrior diet. I guess I wanted to hold onto the idea that I needed more meat than most A types when I followed the Explorer diet.

It's interesting that thiamine is so good for us. People with celiac disease can get deficiencies of thiamine, although the deficiencies people get with gluten problems can vary from person to person. I know that there was a House MD episode where someone had celiac disease. She had terrible mental problems, which turned out to be a severe thiamine deficiency. I started using St. John's Wort earlier this year. Maybe I don't really need it if I get this extra thiamine. I do think St. John's Wort is rather healthy for an A to take, though.

I do plan to get the SWAMI, but I'm not sure if I should wait another month while beta testing is going on. I really like my Teacher diet! But who knows, maybe I'd like the SWAMI one better or just as much.

You can run the software now and start benefiting from the results right away.  

If you purchase the software now you can run it again later after any additional bugs are corrected. Then make any fine tuning adjustments that are indicated by the revised report.

The software is run online, so if the program is corrected you get all the benefits of software updates that may occur.

You may also rerun SWAMI if you find out additional information (health conditions of relatives, secretor status, ...).
