Sorry if this isn't the appropriate area for non-diet related questions but I couldn't see a better one. My question is about something Dr D. wrote Nomads should be wary of, slow growing infections\bacteria. Could anyone give me some examples of such? I'm looking to do a major overhaul of my health and lifestyle and it would be good if I had some idea of what to investigate. I'm pretty sure my gut isn't optimal, my fingerprints are rife with lines, both vertical and horizontal and I recently had the worst bout of constipation I've ever had in my life, at one stage I had diarrhea which smelt like vomit and looked like mucous. Also 2 of my friends are Nomads (I'm 90% positive they are) and both have had long-tem issues with their lungs, one's got a permanent hacking 'smoker's cough' and the other was coughing up blood most mornings. Both gave up smoking a long time ago but these symptoms persist. I've said to both of them to instruct their doctors to look into lung infections\bacteria because it would make sense with the way I read the Genotype book, ie 'Nomads have a fairly good immune system but once they get sick, especially with slow growing bacteria\infections, they can experience symptoms for a long time'. The blood coughing one actually had a positive result recently, I can't remember the specifics but his Doc was finally able to diagnose the problem, I think he ended up prescribing an antibiotic inhaler. My other friend is too scared to go to the Doctor, I think he's scared he's got emphysema or lung cancer or something even though he's only 30.

menieres disease in the inner ear fluids (something a former love of mine suffered from). He grew up in Africa as well, and from childhood onward, was prone to a high fever every month or so with no warning at all, which would keep him bedridden for a day. (strong immune system fought it back, but the core virus was never eliminated.)
viruses can also collect in Nomad liver/gallbladder site (close to the lungs, right?) and unless assisted with flushing or bloodype protocol, can stay stuck .....considering the liver/gallbladder make stones in themselves to try to encase the virus/bacteria.
Perhaps your other friend had the Walking Pneumonia for awhile - that stuff just won't go away without antibiotics.
I'm into liver/gallbladder flushes now.

Thanks for the responses. No I haven't got the SWAMI software yet. I'm on a low budget at the moment and I'm not sure it's worth. What does it do again? Give you a strength percentage of your genotype, recommends foods and even meals, recommend supplements etc. What else does it do for you? I've been holding off getting it until I can get a Lewis Antigen blood test so I know whether or not I'm a secretor. I was hoping to get it done locally rather than paying the extra to send it overseas.
Know of any good wide ranging Liver\Gallbladder tests?
