Quoted from Jarule
Basically, I'm an A+(secretor not known). I stand 6'2" and weigh 185. Definitely and ecto in bone structure and hard to pack on mass but workout frequently and try to eat well. In the latest genotype diet book, teacher was really the only option. My torso is definitely longer than my legs with my lower being slightly longer or equal to my upper. I'm left handed with my ring finger longer than my index on both hands.

Also, really not sure of the SWAMI and what that does but will try to look it up.

Confirming that yes, per the advanced table with the data provided, you are Teacher genotype.  As you can see, the table uses 3 or 4 measurements.  SWAMI uses these plus other measurements discussed in the book, all of the fingerprint information, health histories, etc., and blends BTD and GTD specifically for you.  Because so much more data is taken into account, the major genotype may be different when using SWAMI, and the food lists may or may not change significantly.  

I recommend SWAMI for anyone who can afford it, because it provides information that is highly individualized specifically for you.  The Genotype Diet book gives you 1 of 6 diets, while SWAMI provides 1 of like 12 million diets...

You're very welcome.  

http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=ED070

This would be SWAMIx and the kit to order although I would suggest you also get a secretor test
so you enter maximum info into SWAMIx to give you the best diet possible.

Basically the difference is that in the book, you get a more generalized diet and SWAMIx is
highly personalized.

What you will get in the final report is your genotype, determined by SWAMI and it's likely because
you're left handed that you could possibly be an Explorer which would allow you some meats that
you seem to be craving.  Not beef, but perhaps something more game like that will make you feel
like you're getting what you instinctively believe is more appealing to you.

So this would be the secretor test.

Your food list from your SWAMI might match some of the foods in the book, but personally, my SWAMI barely looks like the Teacher's diet in the book....
because it's taking into consideration my personal health issues and all the health issues of my family and the book isgiving me a diet that would work for all Teachers.

I guess it would be safe to say that the book is silver and SWAMI is gold.

I have a professional SWAMI (which I don't want to confuse you with but it can only be run by
someone who has Dr. D's software and this is usually professionals.  Professional SWAMI would
be considered platinum IMHO.    But gold is super awesome!

I think I already know the answer to this question, but I am going to throw it out there to hear any feedback from other Teachers.

I have always known that I should avoid oranges, even as a youngster oranges always gave me a stomach ache.  So when I saw that oranges were an avoid on my swami I wasn't surprised.

A couple of the energy drinks I like to have before my workouts contains malic acid or citric acid. Should I be avoiding both malic acid and citric acid all together?

Thanks in advance for your comments

Malic acid is found in apples.  It's not necessarily derived from oranges.. Citric acid can be citrus
derived or corn derived.  I think you'd have to see if it bothers you.

Welcome Siawacsh  

Are you searching Typebase?  If so, that would be a list of foods for those following the blood type diet.  And that list of foods would not be applicable if you're following the Teacher's diet.

Your food list would either come from the book called "Your Genetic Destiny" or a personalized SWAMI.

Any food not listed is considered neutral.

My Teacher friend has horrible anxiety attacks. I already PM'ed C_sharp, but I wanted to post it here, too.

I recommended chamomile, but he told me it did little.

Any quick advice? It is causing him a lot of suffering.

Chamomile might be helpful but don't think it was MY perfect herb.  I've tried valerian which
had no positive effect, use magnesium oil, take oral magnesium and still, most of my life, I've
dealt with anxiety.

Lately, I feel very calm...I even feel fairly calm if I drink caffeinated coffee every now and then.
It used to put me in panic mode.

What I've recently started taking (about 3-4 months) is lemon balm.  Bought it here
http://stores.iowaselectherbs.com/lemon-balm-leaf/

and I use a big squirt in warm water twice a day.  Super calming for me... Don't know why this one herb works so great for me when so many others I've tried didn't.

Also using Dr. D's Membrosia Complex.  That might be helping as well.  Can't say for sure....
was using the lemon balm first....and started feeling calm after the first dose.

I do get anxiety attacks when I am out of balance.. To get back in balance I go outdoors, biking and going to the gym to do some fitness. In the evenings I drink Tulsi tea.. That is a great help to diminish anxiety and makes me sleep better!
And I do think that worse than the anxious situation is, it cannot get.. So better to pick up yourself, get your mind blank again start moving! It really helps me

I agree with Cocky!  Just being out in nature can help but drinking lavender tulsi tea each evening relaxes me to sleep!

I've been going through a case of gout for over two weeks: I was prescribed an anti-inflammatory-Diclofenac for the swelling. The doctor also said to drink plenty of water and I know people who have used cherry juice extract. Is there anything I can do to tweak my diet? Thanks.

Hi LaurenlL,

What is your blood type?
My husband is an O hunter and has had gout, as did his father. He eats dark and tart cherries fresh (as they are plentiful in season now) and frozen. He has tried the juice and it helps but not like the actual fruit. He won't go without his cherries!

I eat the fresh dark cherries in season and find it helps with my lower back pain.
I read that people suffering from gout need to avoid foods high in uric acid.
I don't know about the other blood types but my husband cannot eat shellfish or liver as it flares the gout something horrible!

Thanks for your response, cajun. I am Blood Type A+ and a Teacher Genotype. My mother also suffered from gout. I read Dr. D'Adamo's response to a Blood Type O with gout and learned that drinking plenty of water is key to this. My doctor also said the same thing as well as saying that hard cheeses, such as Parmesan and Cheddar, are culprits, too. I read somewhere else that certain legumes are implicated in it. I had been eating more pinto beans. Of course, I don't eat any shellfish, however, I was eating whitefish. It's difficult to pinpoint one food although I am going to explore and research this further. It is almost gone; I am making sure to drink plenty of water.
