Quoted from O in Virginia
I am actually a very good-natured person, almost always wake up in a good mood, but stress will make me bad tempered.  But when it's really BIG stress, like major life changes, I seem to take it in stride.  It's just the ordinary daily stressors that make me want to pull my hair out.  Tell me the world has turned upside down, however, and I come into my own, functioning quite well on overdrive (and adrenaline I suppose).  I think THAT must be very explorer-like.


I am like that!  The little dumb things are what i get mad at, esp when i was eating poorly and drinking a lot of caffeine and alcohol.  Exercising for me gets that energy feeling more normal and not excessive.  
I am normally very easygoing, but some things for some reason aggravate me and cause an exaggerated response that i am trying hard to control.  Can't be good for me as i get older.

A good reason to stay on the diet.

Hello again fellow Explorers; it has been awhile. Before I put this anyplace else in Genotype Forums, I want to report that today's cup of green tea at 4pm teatime made me both nauseus and burping!!
Just when I was eliminating excess carbs.......now I find out I cannot participate in green teas' beneficial "winding your dna back up again" because tea tannin is upsetting my stomach....
I'm stil able to take in decaf coffee as an A Nonnie, however!

IS ANYONE ELSE experiencing this?

Hi Seraffa, I answered your other post as well, but yes, green tea makes me nauseous as well.  I can drink it decaf, (which loses most of the beneficial stuff) but the caffeinated always makes me sick to my stomach.  

As far as cortisol is concerned, I've never had mine tested, so I'm not sure where I stand.  I'm definitely more adrenaline driven...been working on overcoming that fight or flight response for years.  It's definitely a work in progress.


Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again!

Thank you, Beachgirl. Now if you're 44% explorer, what is your other combination?...............

There isn't an answer provided for this question.  The percentage shown in SWAMI is "How many of your characteristics match the primary Genotype on the first pass through the evaluation."  
The only other reference is to a mixture of your blood type and the primary Genotype.

Have you tried kukicha tea? It is made by roasting the green tea stems and twigs. There is the benefit of the green tea without the potential for mold in the unroasted leaves.

I don't have that reaction now, but up to about 10 years ago, I found that the tannins in black tea (an avoid) could upset my stomach.

That's interesting. D'Adamo sez that everyone should fit "general" characteristics of one of the Genotypes but that there's probably no such thing as an exact match.

However -- a 44% would indicate that there is, on the flip side of the coin, a 56% tendency towards an evolving type we have not categorised yet, or that we also fit into.

And 56% is "greater than" but not necessarily "equal to" the 44% that was able to be typed.

I think this would be a worthwhile study as we all improve our Genotypes.

I have a friend that swears up and down that after a certain age there's no reason to mess with the Genotype diet anymore as women cannot pass on more DNA after fertility is gone.

But seriously speaking - take the "way out" exaple of Marvel Comics X-Men series.

Do we really KNOW what will result yet if we continue on the Genotype diet for the rest of our lives?

I think the answer is that we can only wait and see

Other painkilling options are: aspirin. but in this case it might be Alka-Seltzer.

I had seen it before but forgotten about it. Thanks

BTW I did find it was the water temperature and the length of steeping that messed me up.

Well, don't -- that way we can send you round to everyones house during the holidays. Either you will be stress-free and provide an excellent atmosphere for all of us, or, given enough of us and enough time, we'll mess you up on our own.

Hello fellow Explorers  

Quoted from paul clucas
I also have a peculiar response to stress.  I can get completely stress out before an anticipated stressor, or after a surprise one, while feeling pretty calm during the event.


This is me also - find that I'm probably the calmest during a highly stressed/emergency situation but the aftermath over time can flatten me.  Also, I'll lose weight with stress rather than putting it on.  

Notice a few other Explorers like this

I have a weird stress response too.  Some types tend to cause me to become more irritable, yet other types, like prolonged stress with no breaks (rare) drive me to a state where i do not fall asleep easily and do not feel very tired, like i am stuck on "on".

I have an optimal window of stress where i function great.  If it is too little i get bored and lose momentum and drive.  If i have too much without breaks, a switch turns on and it is hard to turn off.

I find some types of stress stimulating (physical with mental together), while other things (like too much sedentary brain work) cause me to be stuck in the "on."

My digestion processes still are not fully understood by me though!  For example, red wine gives me horrible heart burn, but coffee does not.  Certain sauces and starches do this, but not others.  Certain meats will do this, but others actually relieve it.  Certain fruits and veggies give me burn, (like OJ) but others do not.  It does not correlate totally with beneficials and toxins either.

Sometimes the same food or beverage will not sit well one day, but sit fine another day.

Well it goes under other names too, like up north they have BRIOSCHE   bree-osk-ee its a lemon flavor aspirin fizzy seltzer packet and you open it and drop it in glass of water. i don't get side effects. all it reminds me is that I rarely drink gassed water. if i were drinking gassed water every day i would not have enough stomach acid as Dr. D'A says. I think it's very gentle for nausea and headache if you can tolerate aspirin.

I agree that there is more that doesn't fit the specific characteristics than the 44% that does match, however, it doesn't necessarily follow that more Genotypes will emerge.  I think it shows more that each of us is unique and as such, this type of diet is really of great value due the specifics of each individual.

Quoted from Seraffa
I have a friend that swears up and down that after a certain age there's no reason to mess with the Genotype diet anymore as women cannot pass on more DNA after fertility is gone.

Do we really KNOW what will result yet if we continue on the Genotype diet for the rest of our lives?

I think there is great value in being healthy, regardless if I am passing genes on to offspring or not.  I realize that it is impossible to know how much longer I'll live with the diet vs. without, whether I follow it or not...  I do know that my whole family is healing, so I know this is worth doing...
