The NAP lab is awesome--my results took less than four business days!  

The good news is, I CAN eat AVACADOES!   Always have loved'em and didn't think they were giving me a problem...I suppose I can exchange that for the mozzarella cheese, which is now an avoid...

It explains a lot...even though I'm pretty resistant to disease as far as the average viral/bacterial thing goes...I've had several years of inflammatory troubles...and super-sensitive to herbs/OTC drugs, prescription drugs, foods, etc.   Heck, Tylenol and Motrin make me slightly drowsy...I've asked my doctors many times if this is a normal reaction and they all just looked at me like I was insane.  Ok, maybe I AM a wee bit crazy...   But no need to be mean about it!

In any case, I just re-ran my SWAMI but have to get back to work.  On quick perusal, it appears it doesn't change things a whole lot...the main thing being I CAN eat avacados...thank you, GOD!    

I will be running to the store this week, to grab a few of my little precious green sweets...I've missed them!

Welcome, robydoo!  

So all you have to do is to keep on keeping on!  You're already on track with your Swami dude (as golfzilla would say).



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Robydoo~ I just found out yesterday I too am a nonnie. NAP is awsome, they actually processed my test on the 28th - Saturday!
Very glad to hear about the avacados as I too was missing them. This is a bonus I was looking for. I also think someone mentioned we can now have a greater variety of meats..?

I began reading LR4YT last evening and my understanding is knowing my secretor status will help while reading it.

Cheers!

LR4YT helps to put the pieces of the puzzle together.  Knowing your secretor status is a major part of the puzzle!

Ok, even though I have been Swamied, would it still be worthwhile to get the LR4YT book?  Don't have that.  I started with Genotype book to start and swami trumps that--I am interested in knowing more about non-secretor status--is the LR4YT book the best source, or is there something else out there I can get my hands on?

I love the LR4YT book because it really tells you about your blood type and secretor status.  I still sometimes use supplements from the Health Series books that target our blood type and various diseases.  I think it's worth having.

Ditto...I think it's worth having also.  Lots of valuable information in it.

P.S.  I have three of them that I lend out to those who are interested.  (First one I bought and others I have gotten at second hand book stores).

It is very strange that you found any of Dr. D' Adamo's books second hand at all!  

I see the books of Weil, Ornish, and Atkins all the time, but Dr. D' Adamo's books are conspicuous by their absence.    

Yes. definitely worth keeping.  LR4YT is useful to lend to those who are struggling with ER4YT and have nonnie indications.  LR4YT takes people deeper toward the jump to Genotype and then "The leap from the Lion's Head" - Thank you, Steven Spielberg - into Swamiland!

Newbie looking at LR4YT in confusion "Which of these type O diets do I get?"  

"Well have you had a secretor test?  That would tell you which one."

V~ Am into my LR4YT now while eating avacados


Gotta get myself to the store for those avocadoes!  I found some flax cracker/chips at the health food store...they are pretty spendy, but a very nice treat--they make the perfect dip/chip to go with the avocadoes.  

Glad to hear you are a confirmed nonnie (you probably suspected as much for yourself, as I did for moi), too--my swami only changed a little bit--given we get avocadoes, I say, for the better!    

The non-secretor status makes so much sense for me...finally!  It really is a huge relief for me to be able to slap a label on this (all those weird little health issues and sensitivities explained--we are NOT crazy)  and discover a new and better path towards health and healing.  

Many thanks to Dr. D for all the hard work he put in to providing the rest of us with the knowledge/tools we need to vastly improve our health and quality of life!

I think it's strange too...they obviously didn't read the books and try the diet properly.

Value Village is a good place to get them also.  Got three Eat Rights once.   Was a bonus day.    Got one once at a garage sale for .50.

It must be sad for an author or artist to see their works being sold cheaply second-hand.  That works opposite, though when the books are rare.  Like, my grandfather's memoir now sells for > 10 x original RRP.  Dr Ds books go so cheap because they are bestsellers.

Some people just aren't ready so the word is spread to more people while saving a few precious trees

Exactly!!  Lola...I used to feel awful when I found his books in used book stores, etc.  Now...not at all.   I just pluck them from the lost files and pass them onto someone else.

All very true however here is a question...

How many people have been able to read his books and are now healthier for doing so that might not have been able to due to the price..? And how many people have they shared it with and so on and so on...

It's all good!

I agree GZ... I first discovered The BTD for $1 in an op shop... And to me it was the best dollar I ever spent!!! I am such a tight a@*se I would not have spent more on an untried/unheard of "diet" as IMO I'd already tried 'em all...5kg less later, I was hooked & on the "journey"
