I'm here to admit I was wrong on the subject of secretor versus non-secretor. My test result came in today, as well as my husbands, and both of us are secretors much to my surprise! My avatar has now been permanently changed to secretor.

So many of you have recommended getting a secretor test done just to know for sure if someone is uncertain and trying to make a guess. Although I don't see a lot of radical changes to my SWAMI, there are a fair number of foods that changed in each category. I'm so glad I know for sure now, even though I THOROUGHLY hated having the blood test because of all of the squeezing to get enough blood into the vile (my finger is still bruised yet). I can also put to rest the possibility of my blood type and RH being wrong, which it wasn't and is exactly what I was told it was.

Thank you to you older veterans of the BT/GT diet for the sound advice you gave about not assuming or guessing secretor if you have a SWAMI and really want it to be as accurate as possible.

You sure can't tell unless you do the test. I did it twice because I thought they made a mistake and switched mine and my husband's vials. I sent a second on its own and it came back secretor.

It feels good to know for sure, doesn't it?

We can not guess at somethings-- not sure where I read this recently might have been here or facebook but someone was going about guess their blood type based on the reactions they had to food.

How can you guess/ deduce something like this? We all have cognitive bias -- but our body secretions can not lie

I was astonished when I found out I was not a secretor. There were plenty of reasons that I had assumed that I was. I think the big problem was that the Explorer traits were kicking in and confusing me. Yes, it makes everything so much easier to know our secretor status! Worth every penny.

My sentiments exactly Spring! I too believe that the Explorer traits led to my confusion. My husband has a stomach of steel, they rave about his teeth at the dentist, bounces back fairly well when sick (which is rare), what's not to think he's not a Secretor! Well, he's a nonnie. Go figure.

When I click on "secretive status test" up top, it says the product does not exist. I want to get my secretor status for sure now too! I've always "assumed" I was secretor.

No doubt KNOWING what is is most reassuring.  Suddenly the world make sense..  

Dr. D. does that.. in soo many ways.


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Sorry.

The link at the top, still points to a the old version of secretor kit.

The store now offers a new kit. You can find it here:
