Reading the long "you might be a nonnie if..." thread got me wondering how many people resonate with those "nonnie traits" who are nonnies, how many resonate with those traits who are secretors, and if any nonnies don't experience the hyper-sensitivity that most of us share.

i had noticed the same thing ruthie.

For me, i had long suspected i was a nonnie, even before reading that thread. Decided i "needed" to know when that was the one thing that came between being a Nomad (which did not feel right) and an Explorer (which did). Got the results and confirmed what my intuition was telling me... i'm a nonnie and an explorer.

Additionally... i have been curious about idea that HSPs (Highly Sensitive Person) are nonnie's...  would be interesting be interesting to see if anyone has cross referenced the 2.

And BTW...
item  in your poll, i think should it read:

I "feel like a nonnie" but I'm a secretor.

Hmmm. Hope it is OK for a Secretor to post on this thread.  

I figured I was a Secretor because I could not relate to the problems that the O non's on the board were into. i.e. the grains thing.

When I finally got my test done I think it was with the feeling that it was just a rubber stamp thing to confirm, officially, that I was a secretor.

From how many problems I had, I thought I was a Non-Secretor, so got the test.  Found out I'm a Secretor.  I guess it was just so much abuse to my body...

I ponder this about myself - Do I have so many problems because I am a nonnie or do I seem like a nonnie because I have so many problems?

From the moment I read the nonnie description in LR4YT, I knew I was nonnie.  I was happy to be a nonnie too because my swami added back some of my favorite foods!

I had never heard about secretor status before coming to this website, and after reading some of the posts, not in the clubhouse, because I didn't even know about that, but just reading on the forum, and especially after having been described as the 'canary in the mine' by family members, I strongly suspected that I was a nonnie...and of course my test proved it. I'm also one fingerprint between a Hunter and an Explorer, as I do have a LOT of the sensitivities that Explorers have...

I found out I was a nonnie way back when (the test says '98, but was LR even out by then?) made sense in that the original O diet wasn't quite cutting it....although it thankfully got me out of my vegetarian stage.  I remember feeling pretty sad about the Nonnie diet at the time, probably why I searched out other stuff....and now I'm back here again!

But it all makes sense...I think most of us nonnies are just intolerant and require things to be "just so".  Secretors can handle much more variation, maybe?

I knew my secretor status long before LR4YT even came out. When I read the LR book, I could relate to some of the nonnie issues. I have seen soy for A's in ER go from highly beneficial to neutral in LR to avoid in the GT Explorer diet and now that I have a SWAMI most soy foods are black dots

I'm really not surprised that soy changed so much from ER to SWAMI. I never really could tolerate soy and now I know why.

Absolutely it's OK for secretors to vote and comment on this thread!

Hmm.. maybe I should have posted this is the Live Right forum instead of Nonnie Clubhouse so secretors don't avoid the thread.

C-sharp; thanks for fixing my typo. I read through the options several times before clicking "post" but I still missed it. Do you think maybe you could move this thead to more neutral territory so the other secretors feel free to vote and comment?

The "you know you are a Nonnie if.." thread doesn't resonate with me for the most part. I'm definitely not a "canary in the mine"

I have yet to do a secretor test. I feel I am a secretor, I have none of the issues the nonnies seem to have. I did great on the BTD. I decided to go with swami because I'm just like that, curious I guess, and I love cheese (I'd been eating it anyway ). I've recently discovered that the lack of soy is quite possibly why I was getting hormonal headaches (I recently ate a bunch of soy and right now in the middle of menses I have no headache, yea!). The first swami I did moved soy to neutral and since I'm not crazy about it I wasn't eating it. After tweaking swami it has moved back to SF. I've run my swami both ways, as a secretor and as a nonnie, as a nonnie the neutral meats become SF and a few other things go back and forth between SF and neutral, nearly all of the avoids stay avoids, few things move to the avoid column.

I think my oldest daughter is a nonnie, if ever I can afford it and convince her to try it, I will spend the $ for a secretor test on her

I assumed I was a secretor, since I really don't have any of the typical problems that nonnies seem to have.  I do have some of the traits and if I had known about the bad teeth and the heightened sense of smell, I might have guessed I was a nonnie.  Other than that, I don't have food sensitivities or digestive issues.

The actual numbers keep changing as more people vote,  but the ratio seems to be staying around the same: approxiomately 75% of people guessed their secretor status correctly, based on the "you might be a nonnie if..." thread.

Of those who guessed wrong, it's far more common for secretors to have "nonnie-like health issues" than it is for nonnies to "not notice any problems" but that happens as well.

Bottom line: the "you might be a nonnie" thread is fun, but doesn't replace an actual secretor test!

this is really interesting...neat how the numbers are breaking down.

As Possum stated above "being a nonnie AND explorer must give a potentially double dose of "problems""... As an explorer and nonnie, i would concur with this statement, and it makes me wonder how many of the "you might be a nonnie" traits cross over/are similar to Explorer traits.

Even though being a non secretor is common to explorers, it is not 100%.. Perhaps those secretors who resonate with the nonnie thread are explorers?

I am very brand new (O+ secretor) to this and don't know if this is even the place for this post but here goes: My daughter is booked for gum surgery the end of this month. She has had receding gums since she was about four years old. She is 14 years old now and we have been putting off this gum tissue graft for quite a while.  Just on a whim, I had her blood tested. She is O+. I then did a secretor (which took half the day to get enough saliva) and she turned out to be a non-secretor.
Has anyone else experienced gum/mouth issues with your children and did the BTD help? She is also taking some supplements, doing special mouth rinses (HMF, folic acid/zinc, vit.C and some herbal tinctures) twice daily and being more meticulous with her dental hygiene. Is there anything else that she should be doing? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Sylvia,
I find the GTD that I am  following with the SWAMI food list has helped a lot with the two pockets in my gums that have become inflammed the past two years. I did the folic acid for one month and now use a toothpaste that has the herb NEEM in it. Neem has amazing properties to kill bacteria. Also the blood type Polyflora help to introduce good probiotics into the system which benefits the whole body. I hope this helps.

Ara 6 is a great supplement for gum health. Gums heal very slowly... I know some place Dr.D mentions gums and what to take for them.
