Lori,
I was very touched by your post. Like several others have said, I have tears in my eyes.
As tough a road as you may have ahead, at least you have a plan to follow that you know is the right plan for you.  I'll be interested to hear about your progress.  
So happy for you that you were able to go....

Jane you are so sweet...always in my corner.  I always do a little happy dance when I see your name pop up.  Thank you for your continued support.

I'm doing great and had my first real good night's sleep in many many years!  Yup...I woke up rested people!  Never have I had that.  My hubby told me he didn't sleep well and went to the bathroom twice and I was amazed because usually I'm such a light sleeper that any noise had me looking at the clock.  I have to be careful not to overdo today because I feel CHARGED!

Sounds like Dr. D got it right again...  Good to caution yourself early not to overdo...  I usually do that on the days when I feel great.  I hope it continues for you.

Quoted from SoulfulLori
I measure out a Warrior, Swami out an Explorer but all together I have needs of a Teacher at the moment.  Teacher characteristics weight the heaviest in me despite measurements.  I could have never figured this out on my own.  On my own I did measure myself and found Warrior but always felt more like an Explorer with some Teacher ways.  Dr. D will adjust my diet as my needs change.  Basically he is trying to REJUVINATE my cells and clean out my liver.  It seems my gut is working pretty well so that was good news.


Isn't it great seeing him and knowing you don't have to "wonder" if you're the right Genotype anymore?    I would have been following the Teacher diet if I didn't go to see him. I measured myself a Teacher. I wonder how many members here, mis measured and are following the wrong diet? If anyone can get to the University or to the clinic, especially if you have health issues that are not being resolved, I can't highly recommend enough going to see Dr. D in some form. We don't know how much longer he'll be doing the teaching at the University.  I'm past due for a check up..I need to get to the clinic one of these days...

Lori, don't forget to type "Teacher" in your avatar. It makes it easier for us and newbies.

Well thanks, I appreciate the answer.  Two months is not to bad after the shock I got last year when I called his clinic.  And from what Lori is saying, it looks like "good things, really do, come to those who wait".  

I waited four months to see Dr. D at his clinic.

I agree Mayflowers.  I didn't put Teacher because I measure even by him as a Warrior and Swami out an Explorer.  I'm a Teacher only by how he changed everything for me personally.  This is why he is frustrated with books...you can't get personalized medicine down into a single book for everyone.  I guess I could put Teacher but I am not even really on the Teacher diet exactly...he fine tuned everything!  He said in 3 months it will all change again!  Told me not to get caught up on the Teacher label.

Woow, that's very interesting.. He said don't get caught up in the Teacher label?  This is soooo
individual! Don't you love it!???   I'm waiting for him to do some more research and come out with more info on the GenoTypes !! I hope so.   I'm sure he can take foods from the BTD, Genotype diet and mix them up but we sure don't know what we're doing.  Pays to go to the Man...uh..Doc...to get the perfect diet for us!

Quoted from Andrea AWsec

This is great. I was telling a co-worker that her cooking for her family is the ultimate love for her family. It requires so much time and energy but the investment is huge for her children and her grandchildren. She had never thought about it like that and I could see her think about cooking in a whole new way.
With any good cooking, love is the necessary ingredient.  

Lori you have been given a revelation.  You have been reminded about the interconnectedness of the "different" parts of your life.

Warrior then to Explorer (Swami) then to a Teacher base (until the goal has been achieved).  Although people who are sceptical of nutri-genomics would take this as internal contradiction, this does make a phenomenal sense to me about you.

This is time for a celebration!

Thanks PC!  I never thought of it that way but very interesting.  I am rejoycing.  I feel so good about it all.

Andrea...he said that he usually doesn't like to add too many supps but he did quite a few with me as to get me over this hump.

I take 2 Polyflora in the AM

11 AM I have a protein shake, Licorice pill (forget the name) with 2 Potassium pills, 2 Cortiguard, Fish Oil

2 times with meals I take a supp to aid digestion...forget the name...it's in the house...not from NAP

before bed I take 2 more Cortiguard, 2 Methyl B-12 and 2 Tranquility Base.

I think that is it...oh yeah and 2-3 times per day I drink Mr. Itura's green tea.

Really, the main work for me is to look at the world with a fresh eye again.  I find when I do I feel more energetic.  I'm also finding as I do this I'm having strange moments of deep grief that just comes out at odd times and I cry like crazy.  I don't feel depressed...no...it is like this strange grief that feels "old" and almost "global".  Sort of like when you see a beautiful little bird and it is so pure and precious and then you look closer and see a toxic waste dump behind it and your heart is sad for the bird.  I don't know how else to explain it but this is the strange sadness/pain that I keep finding myself feeling at odd times.  So what I've been doing is just letting myself feel it and cry and then go about my day.  Not sure if that is normal or will the guys in the white coats come for me.

I'll bet in the end the sadness will be replaced with gratefulness. Many of us have described intense feelings of gratefulness.

As Lori kindly put on the Symbi's Swami thread..

Quoted from SoulfulLori
Symbi...it was Licorice Root Extract (Glycyrrhiza Glabra) 400mg with 16% Glycyrrhizin by Vital Nutrients and I take it with Potassim Citrate.  I don't think this should be done without a doc though due to possible blood pressure changes and such.


Even though she's not feeling good herself, she's helping and thinking of others.  What a lady! Lori!  

Beautiful words Andrea about gratefulness.  Some happy tears here (where's the happy crying smiley?)  My heart is

Heee...happy smiley...like that.

I'm feeling really good these days.  Any pain is external really now.  I'm struggling with my family frankly but I myself feel very well.  They are all amazed out how good I look and feel with this WOE and they want to do the same.  The problem is everyone sort of wants me to figure out every meal for them and the kids complain that they don't like this or that or they want what someone else is having.  Their mother doesn't want to do this and told them that wheat is necessary and healthy and refuses to try any new foods.  I told the kids that they don't have to do this and that they can just make little changes like only eat half the bread or leave out the noodles or something like that but strangely they want to do more.  My husband is not complaining but not helpful with meal preparing and can't seem to remember what is compliant or not.  Sigh.  I cannot be expected to manage everyone's mouth, attitude and stress level.  Mine is going up.  I can see I'm giving more than I'm able but I am not sure how to reorganize this.  I am impressed by the kids desire to do something different because they both say they don't feel well and that they are pudgy.  My step son has huge anxiety issue and anger.  I just don't know.  I love them all and want to assist them but don't know quite how to do it so that I am not exhausted too.

Maybe this should be another thread.

Your SWAMI has a meal planner, maybe that would take some of the stress off you.
What are the kids blood types?
