Thanks i'll look for that book, i am now a teacher because i have four whirls but i still think im a bit explorer. the running is great for explorers to de-toxify isnt it? I'm way too reactive to be a teacher although i was thinking it could be more diet and sinus related.

Yes with running you can literally go "Exploring"   But even as a Teacher I think it's probably great. On my Swami exercise guidelines I have Competitive sports like Soccer, which might not be as ideal for the Teacher Genotype. But running can be very calming and relaxing.

I feel it also helps with getting out, getting vitamin d and overcoming anxieties because running feels like such a liberating experience.

Does anyone know why allergic reactions appear generally in the facial area? If I have an allergy it always appears on my face. Why not say the.... shoulder?

It was very interesting the post about phenols maybe many face washes include these phenol ingredients leaving this area more sensitized and more prone to a reaction.

reacting to allopathic meds... especially painkillers... but now a question of todays...
I justamente found aspégic forte which consists of DL-Lysini acetylsalicylas 1.8grams
and it corresponds to 1gram of acidum acetylsalicylicum.....

are we- the explorers ok with that stuff I don't know if this is purest DL-Lysini acetylsalic. or if that stuff also might be not bearable for us

Any thoughts here from other explorers or even some expereinces on that field to share thank you in advance....

That makes sense re those face washes leaving this area more sensitized... Also the skin on the face is often more exposed to the air, pollutants & makeup etc... Plus that part of the skin definitely seems to get thinner as we age - again could be from all of the above mentioned effects?!

Hello; do any Explorers find that without sufficient physical exercise, any "avoids" they could have eaten the day before become REPEATS in their bodies 24 hours later????    Mine do.

If you find running relaxing, do you find it relaxing while it is happening, when you hit a runners high, or afterward?

Please Help.

I'm new to the Genotype diet. Just started researching and tested strong for being an Explorer. But I'm feeling rather confused. I'm blood type A and have always felt connected to the vegetarian/vegan blood type diet for A's because I am intollerant to dairy and red meats. But the Explorer diet includes meat and dairy that are in the avoid section in the BTD. ??? Plus the personality traits of the explorer doesnt seem to match very well. In chapter 7 of the book Dr. D says not to stress about the details, if something doesnt fit than it doesnt. So am I just supposed to try to combine the BTD and the GTD to what my body says is ok?

Feeling lost and wondering where I fit in....

SWAMI takes all of the guess work and gives you a personalized print out of what works for you. Sometimes it must be tweaked a little, like if you know you are celiac, don't eat the things that have gluten in them. I believe the SWAMI version 2 due out this autumn (we hope) will have a section for ticking off more conditions than it now has.

I didn't do too well on the Explorer diet, either.  But then I tried SWAMI, and that cut out a lot of the problem foods, such as dairy.  If BTD worked for you, perhaps you should stick to it until you can afford SWAMI.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

What types of hormonal imbalances are explorers prone to?  I know they are prone to blood irregularities and hormonal imbalances, does anyone know what they are...like bad ratio of testostrone to estrogen, or other types of hormones?

Purchase - malic acid capsules. That is what contained in the apple juice and is recommended for various cleanses for those who are diabetic and want to do cleanses that require apple juice.

You can use a milk thistle supplement.  I began using this again as i began to take on the symptoms below:

I struggle with liver sluggishness (liver chi stagnation in chinese medicine).  Some signs of this can be irritability, distention in the abdomen, distention in breasts (even in men), tight throat, sighing, and inappropriate anger when the liver is strained.

It can transform to heat and attack the stomach, spleen and heart (called liver fire invading stomach, spleen, heart, lung, etc.).  This will give acid reflux, burping, insomia, rapid pulse, thirst for cold fluids, excessive appetite, and feeling the mind can't relax to go to sleep, flushing of face, and redness/dry eyes.

Can also go to lungs and cause allergies, asthma, coughing, excessive phlegm, depression.

The liver is like the gas pedal for good functioning of other organs in the body.  It controls smooth flow of blood and energy, and stores blood as well.  

This is how it is seen from the traditional chinese medical perspective.  Can help get to root of problem.

If you have/use SWAMI Xpress, then the update(when available) is included.

If you don't have SWAMI, you have to buy it to use it.

Easy E,
Great info.
I also struggle with liver sluggishness and do Acupuncture with a great woman who is Chinese.
I didn't realise it could cause distention in the abdomen.  
Also the rapid pulse which isn't so bad now, the thirst and dry eyes.
Curious if you go this from a book you can recommend?
thanks for sharing, Lin

Here's a great article on Liver as the engine of your body, and the cause of leptin resistance http://www.jackkruse.com/leptin-part-deux-the-liver/. Curiously enough, relating back to what someone, above, asked about Explorer hormonal imbalances, some studies show that if you have high androgens in your system....you will never wind up with fatty liver disease as a byproduct of leptin resistance. HOWEVER, as a nonnie....I am going to have to go ahead and adress SOMETHING with my liver....because actually, at 192 pounds for a few years now.....I am not diabetic, and my blood pressure is good -- even low. So I do believe my "engine" needs help.

And I will start answering my own question from a few months ago about "repeats of avoids" in a person's system within 24 hours....making them suceptible to eating more avoids even if they're trying to fight the overwhelming urge. I think this is a nonnie explorer thing, and has to do with the body tissues and lymphatic system being invaded, clogged, and fueled by avoids. I have no idea how long it takes for cells themselves to push out waste material, but I wager the cells are faster at it than the lympth nodes ever will be.

PS: I wonder if there are other nonnie explorers out there who, if attacked by ragweed pollen, find the pollen even hurts the gums around the teeth...it does with me...all itchy and sharp.

PSS: I have found tapioca, (and, I would think any other gelatinous beneficial foods would do this too) to be an excellent soother and medium to carry away offending material in the body. Thank you dear God for the gift of Manioc root!!
