I have read up on both the blood type and geno type diets.  I have taken the various tests to determine that I am a Nomad geno type with blood type B+.  I understand that the geno type diet is a more refined and specific diet than the blood type diets.  However, I'm confused by the contradictions between the two diets - for instance, the blood type B diet says that cows milk is highly beneficial for B-type people to consume, whereas the geno type nomad diet says cows milk is toxic for the Nomad to consume.  Another for instance, both kidney and lima beans are highly beneficial for the blood type B diet, but both kidney and lima beans are toxic for the Nomad geno type diet.  Can anyone explain why such contradictions exist?  Thanks

The Genotype diet is much more individualized than the BTD.  A Nomad can be either a type B (with very specific characteristics) or a type AB (with specific characteristics).

Some type B's are Gatherers
Some type B's are Explorers
and some type B's are Nomads

So "type B" only means that your blood is that type.

Let me not pass you by in quest

I think that A's who are explorers really get caught up in this situation.  I cannot speak for others, but i am sure people of other BT's feel or have been in the same situation.  I tried mixing them, but it does not work!  Follow one or the other.  A lot of people do well with the reg blood type diet, but some people are set different.  That is why swami and all that was made!  (I have yet to use a swami, but i need to develope my financial health first!)

I think the thing with milk is that the majority of adults are lactose intolerant.  I’m a B Explorer but when I had my Swami done I could have milk again.  My son is a B Nomad.  He has never done Swami but he feels good when he drinks milk so refused to give that up.  Everything else on Nomad diet fits him so I can’t see spending the money for a Swami just because he is not lactose intolerant & it would probably tell him milk was OK again.


I am B- NON-Sec Explorer; my son is B+ SEC Nomad; my Mother was O+; and my Father was AB-

The BTD is a diet based mostly on a single gene, blood type.

The GTD is a diet based on ALL your genes, your unique, one-of-a-kind you.  So, in that instance, some foods that used to be bad on the BTD are okay on the GTD because the diet takes into effect how it affects your entire genetic profile.



Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

View the Blood type - Genotype possible combinations below.

The Genotypes are the hexagons in the blood type squares.  Teacher and Warrior have to share; Teacher is more A-sided, and Warrior is more AB-sided (but still very A).
