Quoted from Chandon


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.


St. Johns Wort did nothing for me but make me feel sleepy. It's supposed to have
anti-viral activity but I got no benefits from it at all for depression.  My mood has
been really great on the Teacher diet. I love my SWAMI.  Wait till you see how
you feel on geno harmonic food combinations.  I love the customization of having
a SWAMI...

Interesting about the thiamine/gluten connection.

I've been using a SJW that is actually more stimulating than some others; as a result I take 1-2 of the pills rather than the full dose (3). It guarantees a certain amount of hyperforin in addition to the hypericum that's in SJW. Maybe I'll get the SWAMI sooner than later!

So happy you're feeling better.  That's great news

I take them twice a day with meals.....The bottles are a 30 day supply of pills.

alright...
just discovered I have calculus [mineralized plaque accumulation].. I had been very careless about my dental health.. this calculus thing had been there for years, and I never realised its seriousness.. I think this is the another link in the baceteria overgrowth chain.. need to work on it now

When I found out that bacteria overgrowth is responsible for bad teeth my life made more sense. My father's did as well. When he grew up he had nearly an ideal Teacher diet for the circumstances, but as soon as red meat and potatoes from the Navy got in his diet his teeth, weight, and health went downhill progressively.

The Teacher diet appears to be amazing for sustaining low overgrowth bacteria, and repairing the intestines. However I think there should be a bacteria taming protocol, especially since the response is almost immediate.

I have been eating cinnamon and yogurt with my choice of nuts/nut butters and honey. I am losing weight like you would not believe and feeling so much less stressed. My dental health seems better as well. My digestion is improving with other beneficials for rebuilding.

I realize I am preaching my own story, but I would never recommend it to anyone else other than a Teacher. Plus I do other things like low amounts of soy to help the process go quicker (even though I think a package of tempeh should be consumed maybe weekly, or some sort of soy, for the amazing benefit it does for filtering, at least for me). I am kicking my need for so much meat this way too! Nuts and nut butters seem to do more for me now. I still think I am allergic to Pecans though haha.

hi Chole, whenever I sit for eating my lunch and dinner, I face the problem of not able to concentrate on eating.. rather, mind is running here and there... I am eating food, while something else is going on inside my mind.. do you also have same problem?
I found this wonderful link on why mindful eating is required  :
http://www.dadamo.com/wiki/wiki.pl/Pepsin
this article mentions of vagus nerve... more on vagus nerve :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vagus_nerve
vagus nerve innervates [stimulates] the stomach and induces gastrointestinal perstalsis.. it innervates the G-cell in the stomach that produces gastrin hormone that further stimulates the production of gastric acid..
so can we say digestion starts in mind?????

I need to ask Teachers some questions.

Do any of you have candida?

Or did you ever think you might have?

And are any of you experiencing any die off on the Teacher's Diet?

Reason I'm asking is that I'm starting to feel like my gut is a lot better...but joints
are somewhat worse. I don't want to even consider that it's the dairy....because I know
that die off symptoms from fungal infections/candida/other microorganisms can
cause a lot of aches and pains.

Just wondering now that some of you have done SWAMI for a few weeks, is anyone
noticing any new or strange issues that might relate to die-off of toxins?

First I didn't think I tolerated the cheeses....they stuffed up my sinuses...gave me
a headache...and then suddenly, no sinus problems at all...but this week, achy knees
and hips....I'm eating really well.... very compliant....even eating geno harmonic
food combinations at least 3 times a week...

Just wanted some feedback from newbie Teachers....or newbie SWAMI uses who are Teachers.

Thanks

I've wondered if I might have mild candidiasis. While I feel better when eating according to the BTD/GTD, I can't say that I've seen any change that I would credit/blame to candidiasis infection or die-off. But I do just feel better in a hard-to-describe way. I'll have to keep on the look-out for the symptoms you describe. Over the summer I didn't stick to the BTD, and just recently got onto the GTD, so we'll see. I have been dealing with a cold and the sinus stuff that hangs on afterward (or so I think -- maybe it's the candida?). If it turns into achy joints, I'll wonder about the candida!

Sinus problems can be fungal...and candida related.

http://ibdcrohns.about.com/cs/candida/a/candida.htm

I think the implication is that most Teachers have bacteria overgrowth in their
intestines and that many of our symptoms might have been gut related.  Mine
issues usually wind up in my joints and muscles.  More water and lots of green
tea seems to be helping.

candida seems to be a problem with all teachers virtually... thats what we teachers do.. lose balance of good and bad bacteria..

I think I have candida. The reason I did so well on the Explorer diet was because it was so easy to be so very alkaline.

Thinking I was an Explorer due to Candida
Whenever I have switched back to the Teacher diet I lose weight fast and feel real good but then everything stops and reverses. This I believe is due to Candida being expressed larger. I think once I did kick it, maybe, eating like a Teacher but had other problems that scared me away again. I did discover a few things though.


Stuff I think I now know
First I need to feed myself good probiotics. Yogurt and Ghee seem to be doing good. Coconut oil seems good as well. I would not overlook those as a teacher like I did. I did need a fair amount of carbohydrates to get back on track too. However in feeding myself more carbohydrates in the form of rice, along with peanut butter, nuts and cheeses etc... I brought back the candida that was nearly gone from eating like an Explorer very alkaline.

Now I am concentrating on good bacteria, probiotics, and being very alkaline. This so far means.

My plan to solve the problem
Quinoa, very little anything else (an alkaline carbohydrates)

Yogurt the only dairy I eat much of, molds can cause problems with candida and are found in aged cheeses. Yogurt unsweetened is also neutral for alkalinity.

Almonds and chestnuts are the nuts I will stick too, especially for my yogurt mix with honey and cinnamon (I might still keep in walnuts and/or flax seeds though, just omit the peanut butter, add chestnuts).

Good honey is the only sweetener I will use.

Eat lots of fruit (this mostly means dates, but I love apples, hm some pineapple too) with the exception of blueberrys and cranberries in very strong moderation (both are acidifying).

Lots of lemon juice in water.

Tempeh will be a new presence since it is alkalizing (barely).

Things I am watching out for

Coffee while I love the cortisol affect - it puts me on another world - is bad for candida.

Dates are very sugar heavy and can feed candida if you are not alkaline.

Yes it kind of sucks

I love peanut butter and brown rice. I feel like brown rice is the best carbohydrates for me, when it is not feeding candida. I do enjoy cheese on some thing too.

How do you feel when you eat fresh raspberries, Destroyer? I keep finding I get a lot of nausea, which I feel is from some die-off of candida or perhaps whatever else I might have in my intestines. While it's uncomfortable, I feel it is filling a needed function. Sometimes I get that feeling from pineapple, but not lately.

What about buttermilk? Maybe those cultures would help. I sometimes use it in smoothies.

I always love rasberries... They have never done anything bad to me. However I have never consumed them while not being alkaline.

Candida would feed on the sugar in them, but not if you are alkaline. They do help with getting alkaline too.

I feel pretty darn good about my intestines at the moment. The two nights before last while sleeping I was really itchy (multiple places) but that was gone last night after eating very alkaline. I think being alkaline does the most for me in this respect because of candida. However yogurt and cinnamon brought down the over bacterial growth so my stomach shrank and my ability to process nuts and fats returned. I will report back on how being alkaline on teacher diet does for me and digestion. The truth is I digested everything but fats best an explorer but I think it was due to alkalinity. I did not however do well with fats or nuts as an explorer and started having all the bacterial overgrowth issues.

I will report back on this if there are any changes.

Well, for me, I seem to get die off symptoms, and I am stimulated to "go" just as I am with pineapple. I don't know that what is being killed is candida, as we can have too much uphelpful bacteria and also parasites.

I think I am pretty alkaline, whereas my husband seems acidic. I am basing this on the smell of our sweat, I guess.

The rice I've been making is brown basmati. I figure it must be the lowest glycemic of brown rices. I do think quinoa is great.

General rules for alkaline foods.

All meat is not alkaline. Eggs are not alkaline unless it is just egg yolk poached or raw. No grains are alkaline except the exception of amaranth, quinoa, and millet all in grain form (acidic when flour). All nuts are acidic with the exceptions of almonds, chestnuts, fresh coconut, and Pignolias. Unless sprouted then seeds are acidic. All dairy is acidic with the exception of fresh unsalted butter (I am sure Ghee is alkaline or neutral). Coffee is acidic. White vinegar is very acidic.

All vegetables are alkaline. All fruit are alkaline with the exception of blueberry, cranberry, plums and prunes. Soy, Lima, Peas, Snap, Green, and String beans are alkaline everything else is acidic. All oils are neutral except olive is slightly alkaline. Fruit and vegetable juices along with tea are alkaline. Spices are alkaline except mustard and nutmeg.

Do not feel limited it is all up to you to control portions, not just eat alkaline

As long as you consume more alkaline things than acidic you will be alkaline. The idea is not to surpass Turkey, Fish, or most nuts and beans. The idea is to just consume more alkaline things.

Dr. D already has portions for this, 4-5 cups of vegetables a day, and at least three servings of fruit. On top of that as teachers we can eat soy and lots of almond/almond butter. We can eat lots of Quinoa too! The diet has it built in. However if you are like me, you might have trouble with portions a little bit day to day so you may want to think about increases the alkaline content. I will still eat fish and turkey, and some brown rice bread but will concentrate on mostly quinoa, soy, and almonds.

Do not judge with sweat

I could be extremely alkaline but my sweat would smell bad and be heavy if I ate ice cream, for example.

Well, not to be gross, but if there were a really hot/humid night and my husband I were sweating, you would find my side of the bed would be "sweet" and my husband's would be "sour." Another reason I feel our pH levels are different is because bugs love to bite me and they don't bite my husband much.

Have you taken the spit test for candida, Destroyer? That is one way to track it.

While doing the Teacher diet, I am finding so much benefit in terms of my intestines seeming to heal as opposed to previously having gotten distended, bloated, painful, and with symptoms of diverticulitis when I mistakenly did the Explorer diet. Those cheeses were totally wrong for me. But the process takes time. I'm just going with the flow and working to keep faithful to the lists and the servings, sticking mainly with superfoods and diamonds. At first I was definitely eating more fat than I should, so I am keeping an eye on that.

I'm going to get the SWAMI in the near future, I hope, so I can tailor the diet more to me. I do feel like I'm a classic Teacher, particularly in terms of the fact that I have already had cancer and have recently begun having worsening digestive problems, but who knows what SWAMI will say! The range of proteins seem right for me as I feel better when I get plenty of animal protein, but I can also feel worse when those proteins aren't the right ones. Also, I know that the A diet with less emphasis on protein made me feel on the weak side, but not having any soy in my diet on the Explorer diet wasn't good either. So it feels good to get a combo of soy, eggs, cheese, fish, and poultry in the amounts that are recommended.

I seem to feel much better without any vinegar in my diet, kawaikx15. I know ER4YT doesn't recommend fermented foods for A types, but Chloe has pickle juice--as from brined pickles--as one of her genoharmonic foods. I'm not drawn to fermented foods--except I do like wine and yogurt.

DoS,
here again, we need to determine the acid /alkaline content of food, depending on BT physiology.
this as well isn t a one size fit all.....
what seems acidic to you might be alkaline to a different BT s diggestive system.

I am waiting for my SWAMI to arrive to tell me personally what is good what is bad..I found right4eu.com slow in dispatching the stuff..

I feel my digestive system is very poor in breaking down protein stuff and produces lot of methane gas in that process   which is so unpleasant to pass   I would not blame candida all the time. I am strictly on teachers diet for past 4 months now.. But methyl gas production has not reduced..

Any other teacher has the same problem?
