Hi there, was wondering if anyone had suggestions for a good bread?
I'm an O + / explorer! Ezekiel is a neutral but has wheat gluten!
I normally do manna bread but it's expensive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

btw... amazing I learned something new... normally homeopathy in the D-forms won't work for me, now I begun a treatment in C-form and Q-form but liquid and it würrged... ahem worked....... ... hmmmm...
so far I'm demanding myselve if those forms are interacting with my orthomolecular amounts or not and then I've got a very negative reation during 2 days, stopped the intake of the Q-liquid form and have to discuss this with the therapsit.... I literally hate to be bumped onto the wall (also in not knowing how this really work...

and easy E, I don't think it's a manic thing... we do only posses a huge adrenal reservoir ....and please don't remember me on 99 where I really was knocked out by a burnout I don't wish this to my biggest enemy....

Quoted from shells
As a whole group, I wouldn't think that stress would be at the top of the issues list for Explorers.  With our thinking outside the box, doing it our way does in my opinion make us pretty good problem solvers.     

Reacting to chemicals, drugs and even too much of a good food can throw me off.  I even have to watch supplements and especially herbs      Guess it's the liver doing it his/her way  

Anybody else like this?
I agree re the stress thing not being the biggest issue...But reacting to chemicals - oh boy, oh yeah???!!!

Day before yesterday, I was feeling pretty good, health wise & that was despite a couple of broken night's sleep... Then yesterday it was warmer than usual & I decided to "top up" with a lightly scented body spray I also changed into something that had been washed with regular laundry stuff so it had some residue & slight scent on it... Thought both things I would be fine with

Not long after, I started to develop a pain in my right eye & a weird feeling in my head I immediately stripped off, but stupidly didn't think enough about the spray to wash it off too Pain in eye continued despite spraying it with colloidal silver & is still faintly there even today...

I am beginning to feel a tad better & will never use that spray again or trust previously washed clothes...

Actually - as an O, no, the stress would not be at the top of your list. But for an A Nonnie like me - born with higher levels of cortisol, and the Nonnie inability for helpful blood secretions.....if I don't take my stress protocol I revert back to the SAME PERSON I WAS WHEN I ASKED THAT QUESTION LAST YEAR....constant flareups of anger/borderline rage exacerbated from high cortisol dumps and a slowly acetylating liver....

Even tho I have improved living conditions this year (am living back with my family instead of being homeless) - I still get "body generated rage" without my supplements. And its not just from psychological issues.

I hope that years from now, that cycle will have lessened 50% as my body continues to "learn how to live the way it was supposed to live" starting 46 years ago.46 years of damage is a LOT of damage.

I drank black coffee with nothing in it the past few days.  I began to feel really hungry and light, light headed.  Felt like a high, very relaxed.

I usually drink it with some white sugar or honey when i drink it and this does not happen (i prob shouldn't drink it period, being an explorer).

Anyone know what that means?  I really think i should stay away from the stuff, but i am addicted!

- i read about it.  Coffee can lower blood sugar and bring you to a hypoglycemic state esp if sensitive to glucose.  That i think happens when i drink coffee without sugar to cancel it out.  I get a huge sugar high with the sugar!  Either way, i am stopping drinking coffee, i am playing with fire.

I am confused as for which excersise is best for me. I am computed as an explorer but I have a teacher geno type frame. Nothing muscular at all and a very petite ectomorph leg and body length equal. I tried running before whilst on anti-depressants and kept it up for a few months, having come off of the anti depressants my cortisol levels were far too high during a run, a run would knock me out for a week. My brother and mother are teacher genotypes. I am confused if an explorer is supposed to be very musclar and asymmetrical as I am neither apart from my fingerprints. The teacher body type fits me. If on the swami I am explorer why does it say I should run?

You are prob a teacher.  Use the teacher recommends for a month or two and see how you feel.  If you feel worse, then re evaluate.

I'd check out all the measurements.  (find the swami video thread, it really helps)  I redid my head measurement using this video and had a few foods move. somehow I'd moved the taster info from taster to supertaster and was moved to explorer from Gatherer. It was that close.

Explorers can be meso ectomorphic, but still muscular and strong boned, not slightly built.  And teachers have a lot of whorl fingerprints while explorers tend to have mainly loops.

For the most part I am not a stressed person. I am usually a positive and relaxed person.  I do find that when I am at a snapping point that speed walking will calm me down. Of course by the time I am calmed down I find myself about a mile away from home and then have to walk all the way back….!

Can any explorers be slightly built? Or would that suggest teacher? I have two whorls very slightly built and sinewy ectomorph, secretor, A positive, both index fingers longer than ring fingers, square jaw . i'll put the swamii data again, it may have been due to the fact that i ticked the environmental allergy box. i have a suspected cat allergy that my histamine levels are always high and i have a cat, which make me a bit reactive. On the measurment table in the book I am a teacher.

You could be.  I have two whorls, one on my right thumb and one on my right ring finger.  All the rest are loops.  Teachers and explorers seem like they could  have a lot of similar measurments.  Assymetry is an explorer trait though.

Dr. D said take what works and throw out the rest if it doesn't fit perfectly.  Sometimes you gotta play around and see how you do with each protocol (explorer and teacher).  I wondered at times if i was a teacher or even a warrior.  

And if you are not used to exercising and start doing hard exercise, it will hit you hard if you do too much too soon.  Try riding a bike or power walking to start.  I find it tough to walk fast unless my blood is boiling or i am excited though, but that is me.  If you find you are feeling worse, do softer walking and other slower exercise.

i find it depends on the stress. it takes alot to actualy make me angry but when i do look out! i have a tendancy to avoid stress and it's cuases. i avoided my ex for some time before i actualy made him my ex (husband). most of my actual stress left with him.
when we fought i often look off on fast walks through the woods to "cool off".
i do not have any whorls, all my finger match except for the index and thumb of my right hand which both arch.they also go to sleep while driving or doing anny hand work for any period of time (ie painting, drawing, sewing).


nothing to do? who has that!?

Think your safe in your own house? Well, I had a plumber in today and he was nice, courteous but oh! the scent of his clothes. I have smelled strong detergent and softeners on people's clothes before, but this one takes the cake! It seemed even more potent than actually standing in the detergent aisle in a grocery store. I felt quite buzzy and rattled by the time he left. I could not sit still or concentrate and so I made myself bake a new recipe that I had been wanting to make for some time. That seemed to settle me down but all I could do for the rest of the evening was be a couch potato!

It's hard to believe that some people are not affected by this. I guess if the world was made up primarily of Explorers, it would come to a screeching halt if we were all smucked by scents at the same time!

I think its just that Dr.D says that all the blood types handle stress differently O's and A's ways of handling it differ. Like O's can relieve stress through exercise but it can leave A's more stressed that why A's have to do calming exercise. However when you are an A and an explorer the exercise is the same for all who are explorers including O's and the exercise is the same for both. Which leaves me feeling   and  

However for all a good walk after an argument certainly seems to be a good way to distance yourself and unwind, especially in a wood or forest it helps me too realise that theres more to life.

Sounds a bit crazy but I thought I was an O at one point so I tried all of the exercise and facing my fears eating meat that i got swollen glands and adrenal fatigue and couldn't get out of bed for a month. Thats why i'm wondering whether I can bear to do that again and whether a different genotype may explain things.

I had some a while ago that smelled out of this world. Didn't bother me at all. Some perfumes really bother me, but not as excessively as it does other people I know - who break out in rashes, etc., for instance.

turns out i'm a teacher-whatt  . I think it was bach floral essences I have never smelt anything like them still don't really see the point in perfume though! Apparently the body's clean natural scent is very important and shouldn't really be masked up.
