Quoted from Lola
so far, when running swami pro on clients, and not knowing their status

swami has computed some as nonnies, and in fact lets you know

so I believe the same rational is used when running an express.....

swami is SWAMI, you know?!!


This feature is only currently in SWAMI GenoType. It was not always there. It was added.

It has not yet been added to SWAMI Xpress. At least as far as I can tell from my single license of SWAMI Xpress (Can only test type A with a certain range of parameters since some are locked.)

However, I can create a nonsecretor without entering secretor status in SWAMI GenoType. Putting the same data in Xpress will not tell me whether it has guessed secretor or nonsecretor. But the diet report matches the diet report created in Xpress with secretor status specified for a secretor not a nonsecretor.

Try your data in Xpress.

You're correct, C_sharp, it only gives you the choice of secretor or non, but doesn't guess for you...  My SWAMI came today, and I am an Explorer as I'd expected.  Didn't list me as a Reactor, when I react to everything, but figured with the allergies & environmental/ medicine sensitivities, low WBC, etc. that Explorer is where I'd end up. I played with it a little bit & if I change the upper leg space from neutral to andric, I become Hunter.  I left it at neutral because I'm somewhere in between.  Now, I just have to decide whether to wait until Feb. (yearly blood work) or jump on in & get the secretor kit to find out if I'm truly a nonnie!  


Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again!

Beachgirl:

One thing you can do before February is run the SWAMI once set to secretor (this should match what you already have) and again as a nonsecretor and see if it makes much difference in your food list.

If it makes a lot of difference, it may be worth spending money for the saliva secretor test.

For some people, it makes very little difference. In which case you may not want to wait until February.

Andrew, I can't believe you went 12-14 years!!!!     Goodness!  I just seem to feel worse & worse each week & if I'm not seeing any benefit, why bother taxing my immune system even more?  It's nice to know that you've seen an improvement with GTD & SWAMI!  It gives me hope!     I've eliminated wheat, am currently working on getting rid of the last little bit of gluten (Spelt) & haven't touched milk in months.  The only cheese I've had were GTD allowed, but I felt "stuffy" after eating them & think I may need to avoid dairy in general. (not that I have much anyway, besides butter..but I will swap that out for ghee)  If I fix the allergies, the asthma will go too, as it's mostly allergic asthma anyway.  I'm also allergic to mold, trees, grasses, weeds (ugh!), dust mites, roaches & just about every animal with hair or fur.  I tested positive for every tree, plant & grass that's native to NV.  Lucky me.     Thanks for the well wishes!  I wish you continued success as well!


Thanks Beachgirl!

I was 7 when we (my mother & I) discovered that the reason for the asthma was due to mild allergies to dust, feathers, animal dander (usual, standard stuff) but that the big one was mold. Back then ('60s) no one questioned the doctors or the medical system, and allergy shots were the standard treatment. So I was a good boy and had my allergy shots. Of course I definitely didn't "eat right", nor did we move to a better climate. Live and learn. I still live in a humid climate but with central air conditioning at home, work and in the car, so that is almost as good as moving to somewhere a lot drier (like NV  ) but without the dust.  

Of course "eating right" seems to help a lot.

One doctor explained that the body and allergies can be considered to be like a glass of water. If the allergy level is fairly high, you may not really notice it, just as the glass is full. However increase those allergies just a little and there is a big reaction! That glass has overflowed and there is a mess.

Wishing you an allergy "glass" only half full.

So why don't you move to Connecticut or NY, get away from the NV pollen and move close to Dr D'Adamo, Dr Nash, Dr Henninger, etc at the same time!

Great idea, C_sharp!  I'll do that & compare the lists.  

Andrew, I love the lower humidity in NV, but the downside to the temperate climate is that all the pollen blowing plants & trees bloom about 10 months out of the year.  I totally agree with your glass theory...I think mine's been overflowing for years!  I'm hoping we both end up with allergy glasses that are "mostly empty".  

Lol!  I'd love to move, Ruthie!  However, if we do move again, it won't be towards the snow (and the hay fever & humidity in the Summer....I did that in NH for 22 years), but towards the beach.  Pollen levels are significantly lower near the ocean, plus, it's where my soul feels happiest.     If we can one day afford to live at the beach, I'll be able to afford to fly back & see Dr. D & Dr. Nash whenever I want.     A girl can dream.....

My experience with allergies has been that the BTD itself helps eliminate most of the symptoms for nine of twelve months of a typical year.  When symptoms start to interfere with life, I get more strict with the diet, I have more Green Tea, and I also introduce Quercetin, Stinging Nettle and Collinsonia.

Rarely I resort to Benedryl and Sudafed.


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.
