Cajun - which thread? I miss things sometimes. Thanks those are good idea. I've been doing teas more recently than ever before. I cannot do black tea though. It's an avoid on my Swami.

C_Sharp- Thanks! I totally forgot about those. I think I need more brain food! Where are those walnuts? lol

I was also looking at buying an far-infrared sauna. My mom is willing to go 50/50 with me on it. I rent the other half of her 7 bdrm home so it would be easily accessible. Anyone have any opinions on far infrared saunas?

Christa, I just lost weight when I started "de-toxing" at my doctor's suggestion about 6 months ago and I soon realised the diet he gave me was pretty much the same as the A BTD, but with a maximum one serve of carbs a day. So I decided I would give the BTD a try and I lost weight, even though I didn't need to. I was worried I would just keep losing, but suddenly I stabilised.

Then I did SWAMI, and it suggested I eat quite a lot of carbs which I hadn't been doing, so then I started to put on a tiny amount of weight, but I don't eat quite as much as it says or I get indigestion. My BMI is at the low end of the scale.

I would think that you just need to eat less carbs if you want to lose weight. You shouldn't need to de-tox if you have been following your SWAMI should you - aren't the foods designed to be pefect for our individual needs - unless you are not being compliant of course

Ladyhawk - yep I agree! Just realized my insanity of searching for "cures" yesterday. It's all in the diet. Why are we all in society so used to searching that even once we have the answer we still keep searching. lol So silly.


Cajun - if it's the turkey recipe with magnesium and sea salt soak... that the recipe is...

Mix 1 cup of sea salt in hot water in the bottom of a big container large enough to hold a turkey. Dissolve sea salt by mixing.
Than add 1/2 cup magnesium oil. (the mag oil is part of the secret as magnesium brings moisture to the cells.)
Mix together.
Add 5 cups cold water.
Place turkey into the container.
Fill the rest with cold water until covering the turkey. The turkey will float so put something heavy ontop.
Cover this over with tin foil or something. Leave for a day or two.
Cool as per usual. I like to rub some olive oil ontop shove 5 cloves of garlic and a quartered onion up its bum lol

I think most of us are constantly looking for "cures" Christa, at least those of who have health issues or are trying to lose weight.

I am still having an issue with heartburn, gas etc but I have improved greatly on this way of eating and living, so I believe that if I stay compliant with my foods, exercise the way I should and try to avoid stress, then everything will eventually come right. Sometimes I get a bit disappointed when I seem to suffer setbacks, but I truly believe that in time I will be healed and I'll look back and find it hard to remember that I ever felt less than wonderful.

Thanks Christa!!!!! I appreciate it so much!

Ladyhawk,
I love your attitude! You remind me a little of ABJoe. He is dealing with alot of healing and I am pretty sure credits this way of eating with most of it!

You're welcome! It always turns out really really yummy! My mom actually bought a "utility turkey", that thought grossed me out. Normally utility turkeys are the driest and most flavorless ever. And totally not free range. But she used my recipe to soak it and she said it was the best, most moist turkey she had ever eaten. So I tried some and was surprised because I had a piece of the white meat and it was a day after it was cooked and it was still moist and yummy. Wowwie!

I have never cooked a whole turkey - that must seem weird to you guys in the US, but we don't have Thanksgiving here and for some reason I just haven't ever done one at Xmas either, though we did once smoke a home raised goose in our Weber bbq and it was the most delicious poultry I have ever had!

I am going to cook one when my sons and I get together for a late Xmas, so I will try your famous recipe Christa   Do you just get the magnesium oil at a HFS?

It doesn't surprise me that you've never cooked a whole turkey before. It's very American. Being Canadian we do it here too because we live way to close to them so we end up having a few of them cross the boarder and influence our foods and vice versa. lol *being silly*

Magnesium oil is best bought online through...
http://www.health-and-wisdom.com/magnesium.htm

This is the best source that I've found for it. If your health food store is up with what is new (which they might totally be) you might be able to find it there. It will probably just be more expensive. I found a very small bottle at mine here and it was 30 dollars per bottle. So I decided to bring it in wholesale and sell it to my clients/customers from our health store. We sell double the amount for 20. And my customers don't have to drive an hour and a half to buy it from the other more expensive store now.  I believe everyone should be using mag oil on their bodies. So it's great to use in this recipe... but it's (in my personal opinion) extremely important to also use transdermal mag oil. It's needed for over 300 different functions in the body. You can't even properly absorb your calcium if you are low mag. And the more calcium you take the more mag deficient you become.

Thanks for the turkey brine recipe.  I have been doing this (brining) for a few years but never thought about adding Mag oil.  I do need extra magnesium in my diet.

Do you have any more ideas for using the oil?   I stopped  using it bc it makes me itch.  
Feel like it probably won't do much good diluted.
I would like your thoughts on this.

Purlgirl- Magnesium is best absorbed through the skin. If mag oil makes you itch or tingle that just means you are deficient. I dilute mine 50/50 and feel a light tingling. It is a very important mineral. I find that when I was taking it orally all it did was loosen my bowels. For our bowels to work properly we need magnesium (it hold moisture in the colon, among 299 other functions it performs) so that is why I like brining my turkey's with it. It helps me digest the turkey that much easier. I do not believe that any mag needs to be taken orally if you are using mag oil externally.
If a supplement has mag in it, the mag will liquify your bowel and move the supplement through your system so fast that you will absorb that much less of it. As I have problems digesting protein, even though turkey is a diamond I find that if I help it along I don't feel acidic after.
So... dilute your mag oil. Spray it on everyday. I spray it on my back as the entire back has less sensory receptors than the palm of your hand does. So you won't feel the tingling and prickling as much. Dilute it though and as your body gets what it needs you can use it more absolute.

Hope that answers your question.

As a side note: Most brining is done by adding a lot of sugar to the water also. I never ever ever put sugar in. Why toxify myself?

Purlgirl- I've had client dilute it with water by 1/4 even. It's about giving your body what it needs in the best form possible for it. I think it's so exciting that we are learning all these great things to heal ourselves! I'm going to live well into my 100's!!! YAY ME!!! lol

As far as I know, if your genotype (or blood type) diet does not allow potatoes, then all potatoes fall into that category, regardless of their skin color. Sorry. For me, potatoes make my joints swell up big time. Try it for yourself: take them completely out of your diet for 30 days, then eat them and "listen" to your body's reactions.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Thanks Drea, that's worth a try.

When I was a child I don't ever remember being sick. No colds or anything. We used to eat loads of potatoes with a different vegetable every day of the week and with mainly beef or pork - fish once a week in the form of fishfingers. We only had pasta and chicken about every fortnight. All our meats were cooked in butter. I only used to eat bread & rolls at the weekends. I was eating lots and was thin until I went to live on my own and started eating more bread, rice and pasta. I wonder what my SWAMI would say? Is it possible that I would be allowed to eat potatoes again?

ABJoe,

I'm not familiar with the term, but if they are a standard white (inside) potato, no matter the skin color (white, red, blue, russet), they are an avoid for Teacher - by the book.  It may be different for you once you get SWAMI, but I doubt it since they are avoid for A as well...

You may be cleaning toxins from places you didn't know you had toxins stored and healing things you didn't realize were a "problem"...

I had / have cranial deformity and spinal nerve damage from a fall when I was pre-10...  It has been and is healing for about the last 2.5 years.  It seems like it started before that, but I first realized what was happening that long ago.  I now know that many of the symptoms I have had for 35+ years are directly related to the fall, but didn't even realize that it was an issue at the time.  If my diet hadn't been so full of avoids at the time, I may have healed properly then, and never been as sick, but it is all water under the bridge now and I'm happy to be healing now.  Maybe I'll have a healthier last half of life than the first was.

Thanks ABJoe - I always appreciate your comments. I do get a bit disheartened at times especially when I hear some people say they get rid of their heartburn and indigestion almost overnight after starting the BTD.
I am so compliant that I feel I should be so much better by now, but you are no doubt right that it can take years to heal completely. After all I have 52 years of abuse to get over  
Actully I have always been a fairly healthy eater, and have even had periods where I would have been eating pretty close to what I should as an A bloodtype. But I know I have been really bad with the way I eat - way too fast and I've been lying down too soon after eating in the evenings, so I am working on those changes. Plus I am sure my worst enemy has been stress and I think I have noticed a big change in the way I handle stress which I put down to the diet.
I'm with you - I intend to have a super healthy next 50 years and will not succumb to any of these so called age-related diseases!  

Lizzie - I'm a Teacher and have done my SWAMI and I still don't get potatoes. I did eat a lot in my "past life" but I don't miss them at all. There are so many other wonderful veges to eat, so I just concentrate on them instead. Rutabagas can be a substitute if you need one. I admit I was disappointed not to get sweet potatoes either, but again - there are so many other things. I bake lots of pumpkin, parsnips etc instead and Ilove them!

Hi

On the swami:

Is the swami programme about being more strict with your foods in that beneficial/neutral foods  become avoids rather than avoid foods becoming benef/neutral? Trying to decide whether it would be worth getting swami now or doing Teacher diet for a couple of months first. Thanks.

I went from BTD to SWAMI so it made quite a big difference for me. I can't comment on how much difference it will make going from Teacher diet to SWAMI, but of course it will just fine tune your foods to suit you even more. I think it's well worth it - it also gives you all the appropriate recipes, tells you how much exercise you need, all your portion sizes, the best supplements for you etc etc. I did hear they are increasing the number of recipes soon too, so that will be great!!

Foods go both directions on the SWAMI. Some foods rate better and other food rate worse.

The foods value are customized to your needs rather than just becoming stricter or looser.

If you are going to do SWAMI anyway, I recommend going directly to it.

Why waste time learning a system of food values that you are going to have to unlearn later.

In my opinion there is no point to waste ones life becoming familiar with what will soon be irrelevant to you.

Lizzie,
I am a teacher by the genotype book. The change from the bloodtype diet to genotype was pretty significant to me. I will be getting my Swami soon and am excited to see all the pluses Ladyhawk spoke of.

C-sharp: I agree with no point in wasting time but I have to wait now until bills are paid. Am digging into savings just to keep going. I suppose it would be an investment in that there'll be no doctor bills to pay...
