Quoted from Sharon004
How on earth can a lectin that is bad for type B people be possibly a superfood???  

I used to wonder this too. Something that Andrea said awhile back (can't find it) made me start to think differently, that possibly specific lectins in the diet under certain conditions are more helpful than not. Sounds like this might be the case between you and the pinto bean lectin. Maybe for another B Explorer it will not.

or Red meat bad for A type blood, but good for A type Explorers?
if you have the Genotype book, everything is perfectly explained on the Prologue pages, particularly look at the section tittled 'GenoType and Blood Type: What's the Difference?'

Quoted Text
Your blood type is only determined by one gene -one out of about 30,000! ...
Genotype reflect the activity of many other genes, not just the one that determines blood type. While bood type is an important aspect of Genotype, it is not the only gene that matters. ... Genotype reflects both genetics and eipigenetics - the interaction between your genes and the environment. ... For example in my previous books, I stressed that people with blood type A should generally avoid red meat.  That was truth for so many blood type A's that I felt justified in saying that.  But now I can see that some blood type A readers may have a GenoType - called the "Explorer"- that can be benefited by eating some red meat.  On the other hand, blood type A's whose GenoType is the "Teacher" or "Warrior" should probably continue avoiding red meat, just as I suggested before. ...


Dr D in the GTD book, goes further into explaining that by just taking into consideration the one gene (like in the BTD book) -the bood type gene- we were stuck with those lifestyle options for life, since our blood is not likely to change!! But, by taking into consideration a larger subset of our genes that make us, us, and in taking into consideration not just the genes themselves, but their responses to diet and environment (from womb on), it allows for more flexibility, particularly as we get better control of our genes behavior with his suggested 'correct to type lifestyles' (result of many years of research, studies and application). I love his analogies of the 'town meetings' where all genes come together and the aim is to encourage the 'good ones' to speak and the 'baddies' to quiet down  

It all makes wonderful sense ...

that is precisely the power of swami!

certain components in that particular bean or any other food appearing with a different value in your swami, are there for a reason and the program designed by Dr D computes these values and variables and biochemical components in that food to serve a purpose, according to the data you put in......
the complexity is humongous, so I suggest you dip your toes in slowly and experience the change for the better.
Dr Natalie once explained it better than me

Quoted Text
Dr. D. has a reason behind every food placement.  Nothing was placed randomly. However, believe me when I tell you, the database of analysis is huge and the biochemistry amazingly and beautifully complicated.  

Dr. D. is both a physician and a teacher.

Quoted Text
Dr D
Changing food values because of disease is
usually in response to the aberrant glycosylation* found in many diseases and characterized by elevated tumor, inflammatory and/or metabolic markers.

Pinto beans is described as an avoid because:  "Flocculates serum or precipitates serum proteins."  I found an explanation of this description:
Quoted Text
When searching the TypeBase 4 food values, you will see this phrase.
The easiest way to explain it is to say that your body has an  "Immune response" to that particular Lectin.  
"Flocculates" means flaking and clumping together.  Normally this happens when a foreign Antigen is destroyed by an Antibody like when you get sick and your body fights off a virus or bacterial infection.
These Lectins specific to your Blood Type can cause this type of response.
As I have serious health consequences made worse by such an immune response and clumping of blood cells, I really cannot risk pinto beans making this worse.  I really don't see how it is possible for this reaction to reverse to the opposite due to genotype.  And this is just one item that I happened to look up.  So I'm playing it safe.  Any avoids in the Fatigue book I'm removing from my swami acceptable lists.  There are other food options left in the same categories that are definitely safe, and I haven't read anything that says that it is important to eat every food listed in every category.  Especially since some food items aren't even available everywhere anyway.

in one word
agglutination, clumping together

Quoted from Cristina
These concepts have also been a puzzling thing for many of us, and the more we talk about it, the better ways we may find to explain ourselves and reach that aha! moment when things seem to fall in their place.
When you have read ERFYT and LRFYT and you are not totally happy with the BTD what are you to do?  There is the BTD/GTD comparison page to help, but that does not address Swami Xpress

Those who are trying to decide between Genotype and Swami Xpress are hesitating because they do not know which is going to benefit them.  Well Swami can do all that Geno can do (and better  ), but it costs more.

From your comment of puzzling concepts and the hesitation others have, there appears to be some kind of gap to jump.  So, Christina, it does appear that some are not convinced that the Genotype concept is valid.

Once Swami was released, I said to myself "Well I can now throw Genotype in the dustbin!"  A big mistake!  (which I did not commit anyway) Going from any BTD to GT Explorer leaves you scratching your head - it takes a good couple of months to get on the new track.  Changes to other Genotypes, I assume, are also quite an adjustment.  The jump from any BTD to Swami must be even worse in terms of unexpected changes.

BTD and Genotype are necessary in and of themselves, and both are necessary before Swami.  Who would jump straight into Swami, unless they were receiving the care of a practitioner?

Genotype is a working and workable compromise, but it could be seen as a mistake both by hostile critics and by Swami users.  We should all undertake critical thinking before purchasing anything.  Yet it is just too easy to dismiss the Genotype Diet since the Genotype identity (as evident in the food values) can be tweaked beyond recognition in your individualized Swami.  With the knowledge that there are a potential of about a billion ways to teak your Genotype, you know that some will move as far in a totally different direction.  This does seem to weaken the original Genotype concept.  

Not so!  Your feelings are deceiving you: Don't trust them!  (thank you, George Lucas)  This is a case of human intuition going directly against the statistical evidence.  Stats are usually anti-intuitive, but not reliably so!  

The dimesionality of the data in Swami literally leaves us at a loss as how to "sum it up".  

If I am losing you, go and watch part IV (I hope I remember correctly) of Dr. D' Adamo's Wilton Library lecture on youtube!

The important things that change could really be balanced on the desional edge in Genotype, waiting for a little more information to push them from Avoid to Diamond status.  Meat for A and AB Explorers is a fine example.  Enough alkaline phosphotase turns what would putrify in the intestines to quality protein and fat that is readily absorbed!

Even if it were technically possible, a release of a new Genotype system that has more and narrower groups would be a marketing mistake - almost an admission that the original Genotypes did not represent some unchangeable facet of human individuality.

It would also be a step backward in terms of treating the individual.

so far, 14 years almost, all of Dr D s trains I ve ridden have taken me to the right destination......time tables, tracks and all have been perfectly orchestrated!!

I have never tried to maneuver the train, have simply sat back and enjoyed each ride, taking the guidelines into consideration and cooperating by being compliant.

all pleasant rides so far and looking forward to new and exciting stretches!

those trying to take over the operating system are bound to get deviated....

ditto!!   and I am certainly enjoying the ride!!

Agree!! Look at the options!!  I am convinced this is the pathway and each to their own! Nobody is wrong or right, but I am happy where I am and I can clearly see where I am going with my trust firmly in those carving the road in front of me.  Hope everyone find what they are looking for soon, because it is a sad situation to be wondering around not knowing where to go or what to do.  Success and good health to all!! )
