As many of you know I visited Dr. D and his great crew on Friday.  

If you have chronic medical issues and YOU CAN POSSIBLY FIND A WAY TO SEE DR. D...DO IT!  This is the greatest investment in your life.

I will tell more in detail later as I just got back home and my studio has taken on water but I will fill you in quickly.

First, the staff and interns are lovely, caring people that are extremely diverse, interesting and intelligent.  I felt everyones' caring.  They take their time and there is lots to test and do!

Dr. D was involved very early in the process and took his time to go through my file and talk with me.  He is a gentle man with a strong message.  He is a man with great insight and knowledge but more impressively he is wise enough to present it in a way you can understand without feeling like these life changing moments are being shoved down your throat.  IMHO intelligence is the ability to get your point across to everyone in a manner that they understand and to which they can relate.

Despite my lifelong chronic battles with immune issues,  overall fatigue and cancer treatments, my body is relatively resilient and in good shape...at least on a cellular level.  I was very pleased to hear this because I like the idea that I have something with which to work.  I do have about 15lbs or so to lose but other than that I'm in shape.

Long story short, my body has taken some hits via over exercising through the years, not being true to myself at times, stress and the toxins from chemo.  My planet has been knocked out of orbit.  Dr. D's script for this was to alter my diet despite what measurements or even what Swami said at fist.

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.

I learned some things about myself that I would like to share as it may help others.  I said I'm reborn because from this visit on I am not looking back at anything.  I'm not going to compare to my old routines, or how I got here.  I'm only going to focus on today and the possiblities of tomorrow.  This is where my energies will go.

The greatest thing that I learned is probably the most simple but hits me the hardest.  I often kvetch that I work so hard at my health via eating properly and such and yet I have little results or so I thought.  Dr. D. pointed out that taking care of one's body is self love and that is done like all true love...UNCONDITIONALLY.   I am not doing this anymore for a specific result.  I'm doing this because it is right.  I think that is just like not stealing from a store.  You don't go in a store saying...well, I'll take this today and tomorrow I'll pay for my items.  You dont steal because it is wrong...period.  I will take care of myself because it is right...period.  This has taken self doubt out of my mind which will serve me greatly when others try to influence my healthy lifestyle or if I'm feeling low.  This is how it is...period.  I can't tell you how the simplicity of that freed me.  Maybe to someone else that doesn't mean much but for me...WOW!

The last thing was that I must constantly grow and change and look towards bringing new ideas, images and thoughts into this world.  This is what living is about and for me...and A...this is my life's blood.  Even my art can stifle me and fatigue me if it is for the wrong reason or not a stretch.

Oh...this has gotten long.  Water awaits.  

Thank you Dr. D and your crew for your caring, knowledge and time.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You made me feel special.  I have great potential and I'm excited about my life once again.

Oh yeah...and as it turns out I am a NONNIE.  I always thought so but my saliva test said Secretor.  I'm not badmouthing anything but if I were to have done it all over again I would have had the test via blood and not saliva.  I cannot donate blood, they won't let me, but I'm sure I could have had a doc do it.  Just a heads up.

Lori, can't wait to hear about the changes.

You did make a follow-up visit right? I imagine school is out over the summer so Dr. D will not be around.

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.

Lori, I am so profoundly happy for you I have tears in my eyes! I so understand how you feel about eating a certain way because it's the "right" thing to do. I eat out of respect for this physical body that so graciously walks me through this life everyday.

Quoted Text
I said I'm reborn because from this visit on I am not looking back at anything.  I'm not going to compare to my old routines, or how I got here.  I'm only going to focus on today and the possiblities of tomorrow.  This is where my energies will go.


This reminds me of something I think of often that I heard on a CD from an "Art of Allowing Workshop with Abraham." They advise us in life to stay on a downstream path, pulling our oars in, going with the flow and in a state of relief and nonresistance. The part that I love says (paraphrasing) you can put your boat in the stream at any point; in the middle of illness, divorce, etc. but start from that point on and never look back trying to analyze everything, which will just turn your boat around and point in upstream and you don't want to go against the current. Lori, you put your boat in, downstream you go, looking only ahead. Good for you!!

And you got to meet Dr. D!!! I sure would be humbled in his presence. I can't imagine coming face to face with the man behind the research that has helped so many of us.

Please keep us posted as you continue this fascinating journey!

Best to you.
Lisa

Lola...yes, enjoying the process is most important.  This is with everything in life and something I must always do.  My art shows when I don't and so does my body.

Andrea...they could not make a follow-up appointment for me as they did not yet have Dr. D's schedule.  They said to call back in a week or so but that he might be hard to get for a bit.  I hope to be able to see him in May but if I have to wait...  In either case I will email my progress and small changes can be made by email until he is available.  I am on a lot of supps right now that he didn't really want to do for any long term.  This is a temporary thing.

Vicki...I can't see on the report where it says the Lewis thing.  I wish I knew.

Lisa...I will do just that.  I never realized how much I looked back until it was pointed out to me.  I always point the finger at my hubby with his anger issues over the custody battle for his kids but I'm doing it too.  No longer and when I slip I'll pull those oars back in.  I love your support.  Thank you.  You are very special.  You brought me here.  I forgot to mention that to Dr. D.

Dr. D...Yes, I'm excited now but I know the real work begins and may not always be pretty.  I am confident that I am a hard worker and I always do well in things I give to with my whole heart.  What I've done for the first part of my life didn't work.  The change will give me the best part of my life.  Thank you again.  Oh...I listened to a little James Taylor singing Joni Mitchell last night and when I heard this refrain I thought of all of us here...

We are stardust
We are golden
We are billion-year-old carbon
And we got to get ourselves
Back to the garden



Isa...thank you!

I will absolutely post my progress.  Already last night I went out and enjoyed my friends without feeling the need to eat as they did.  I felt so much love for myself and at peace that my focus was only on my friends and not food.  This will take practice but I can do it.

Wow SoulfulLori...congrats...yes we must take responsibility for ourselves first and foremost and keep looking forward.  We can forgive ourselves for the past and must learn not to dwell on it and everything else will fall into place.  

    

Looking forward to your progress...(((((Big hugs)))))

I love this thread, please do keep it going Lori and good luck. I too am guilty of looking back too much, love the part about the boat.

I'm a James Taylor fan too, that is a Joni Mitchell song from Woodstock BTW  .

Oh shoot!  You are right...I was watching a video of Taylor singing it and forgot where it came from.  I'll correct the post.  Thanks...hate inaccuracy.  Looking back and analyzing is a big time A trait I understand.  Lisa is awesome for little words of love like that such as the boat story.  I will continue to post progress.

Good luck, Lori, and thanks for sharing. It sounds like the experience made
you want to buckle down and do the work.

This is making me that much more
excited to go in April. I'm having anxiety thinking that CT. is going to get
hit by a massive snow the day before I leave

I feel like I'm procrastinating on the diet right now, because I'm waiting
to get the "real" information from Dr. D at the shift. After hearing your
testimony I think I'll be ready to do the work then too.

Keep us posted!

Thanks Lori for this thread.  Your story is so inspiring.  Makes me want to sing "go lori, go lori, go lori" and do a little jig too.

How long did it take you to get in for your appointment?  With him only being in on Fridays, I am sure the wait is quite lengthy.  When John and I went back east last spring I called Dr. D's office and I couldn't get into see him at the time I was going to be out there.  I called in February and couldn't get in until May.  I was shocked and couldn't believe it.  I told my husband about the wait and he rolled his eyes (which he does a lot when he thinks I should know better) and said, "oh sweetheart, where have you been?  Good docs book out months in advance."  I guess he's right AGAIN because my own doctor books out a couple of months for specialized visits and John books out 2-3 months and both aren't accepting any new patients.

I would like to make an appointment, so I guess I should call.  I am just an impatient gal, kind of a right now, right now person.  

Where did you stay, hotel?  I will be traveling from Arizona and fly into a NY airport and have no clue which one is the closest.

I am so excited for you and am looking forward to hearing about your progress.

Frosty,
I know you weren't asking me, but if it helps......

I called at the end of Feb. and got my appointment
for the end of April (so about 2 months out). I thought
that was pretty good (although I would like to go now too).

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 am going to give them a call tomorrow and see if I can schedule an appointment.

Calling on anyone that knows:  Which airport is the most convenient to get to and from?  Any suggestions on hotels?

Frosty here's best airports for you.
http://www.travelmath.com/closest-airport/Wilton,+CT

I would also check out Westchester Airport which isn't listed because Wilton, Ct. isn't far from
Westchester County in NY (maybe 45 minutes)...but it's a small airport and might require too many plane changes.

And hotels in the Wilton area..

Lori, thank you so much for taking the time to post about your visit.  I especially felt a welling up in my heart when you spoke about taking care of your body unconditionally and with love.  Not to steal from yourself was a wonderful way to put it.  And what a good feeling that your clinic visit took such a burden off your shoulders.  Now you know what your path is.

Nwiser and Frosty...don't be nervous about the appointment in any way.  I believe it will happen for you Frosty and without snow for Nwiser!  I only had to wait about 2 months and tried my best with the BTD to sort of get my mind ready.  I struggled but kept it up.  I was glad because my breath hydrogen was awesome and I had no white lines.  I stayed in Stratford at the Rhodeway Inn...cheap little motorlodge on Long Island Sound.  Not fancy but this time of year it was under $60.  Took 15 minutes to get to the clinic from there.  Remember if you get lost the clinic is part of the University of Bridgeport...on the campus in its own nice building.  Lafayette Street is not the same as Lafayette Blvd...Google messed that up for me somehow.

NHG...I think I'm on a great path...thank you for reading!

Kumar...I stuck originally with the BTD because I was fearful of getting GTD wrong.  I didn't relate to Warrior food and decided that BTD was good enough until I saw Dr. D.  Looks like I made a good decision.  Actually my food choices are close to what I love, I'm feeling great so far.  I lost apples but knowing that they may have been part of my problem because mine weren't always organic and the toxins clearing from my liver is already a problem so I'm happy to lose them!  My diet is a diet of methylation!  Let's copy some good healthy cells!  Yay!

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!

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?

Yeah, my hubby and I are doing fine with the Swami meal planner.  The 11 year old girl is an A+ like us but doesn't like a lot of the stuff on my planner.  The 10 yo boy is an O+ and dislikes almost everything...he won't eat eggs or fish or many meats except turkey, chicken or hamburger.  He also won't eat any veggie except broccoli and that he shoves down his throat.  Prior he used to live on cheese and bagels.  I plan on sitting with everyone tonight and discussing how they can help make and plan their own breakfast at least.  My step daughter asked for oatmeal and then turned her nose up at it after I stood there at 6:30 and made it.  My stepson won't touch it and the closest to anything compliant was Rice Chex and turkey sausage with some junky soy milk.  She won't eat that. Sigh.  My husband won't eat in the AM so I make him a protein shake to go and then make his lunch.  He eats sooooo much and is still losing weight very fast.  He is very muscular so I have increased the proteins and fats hoping to calm his eating a bit because I can't afford to feed him and it requires a lot of packing!  I do a lot the night before except last night they all came in late from a therapy session with their mother.

Am I wasting my time when their mother feeds them Cheerios and Splenda filled Tastycakes and tells them that is what they are getting and it is healthy?  They are wanting to resist those thigns on their own.  I do not tell them to do so.  They just see that their daddy looks great after one week and is much calmer and that I have lost nearly 10lbs since December and that I have more energy for them.  They are very observant and I want to honor that but I feel I am in an unfair battle here.  Their mother does not care to speak with me but I coppied some of the book for my step daughter and she shared it with her mom but she said she didn't believe in it.  I'm not criticizing but I'm frustrated.

I don't think any good is wasted...  They will benefit from every beneficial that they eat, and every avoid that is replaced.  
It may not be easy, so you may need to explain to them that you are willing to help, but that they need to help you as well.  Cooking this way for them is new to you, and different for them, so the flavors and textures may not be what they are used to and requires them to adjust.  I know that young children, while wanting to feel better, are not always willing to eat different textures and wholesome flavors...  

I think loving discussion is the key here...

Yes, you are right ABJoe.  I also think I have to much emotionally invested in this for my own good.  My hubby has anger issues that have improved with this diet.  He still has to do some emotional work but this has helped him greatly which in turn helps me.  My step-son has eczema, anxiety and anger issues so bad that his mother cannot deal with him and often we are called at odd hours to help her deal with him.  Then when he is with us he is so strung out that it takes us days to put him back together.  The diet instantly helped him sleep and made him feel as if he had some power in is life.  I try to teach him to breathe and how to empower himself.  I know for a fact that this lifestyle can help them greatly and make living with them more enjoyable and I think that things have gotten so bad for them I'm trying to hard to fix it all.  I'm also doing this selfishly because I have to live here and when they are all full of drama it requires a lot of energy to keep myself centered.  I think I've put too much on myself and as you say a loving discussion is in order to get everyone to pitch in.  I don't want to be a martyr.  Thanks ABJoe for your kindness.

Thanks Lola.

Well, I have to say I'm making huge improvements.  I'M DOING THE WORK.  In the past this sort of stress would have made me tired and eat more.  Not this time.  Instead of trying to avoid what was upsetting me, I sat in a quiet chair and did alternate nostril breathing and just kept thinking, "what am I supposed to learn from this?"  Dr. D mentioned that I should deal with the kids in a way that I have an opportunity to learn something from them.  I didn't understand as they are so out of sorts and needy.  Well, the answer came, I'm out of sorts and needy too!  What is lacking here?  HUMOR!  

So last night the kids were being very moody and complaining about their financial wants and things in life that are not fair.  My first instinct was to get upset because I was busting my butt being a good cook and such that I felt angry.  Then I realized that their silly actions and thought patterns should be matched with such.  I looked at them and just started to laugh and come up with crazy scenarios that matched their requests.  They both stopped in their tracks and started to laugh and admit that they were being off the charts miserable.  We all laughed at ourselves.  At that point we touched on the subject of food and they said again that they really want to make healthy changes and feel better already and that whatever I do is good and they will keep trying.

We packed some things the night before and set up things for the morning and everyone was good to go for the day!  

My life lacked humor.  There you go.

I'm glad you found it...  Quite often, kids have to hear what they sound like...  This reminds me of when I've been young child sitting and the "sittee" was having a cry-fest.  One day I had tried everything I could think of to make her happy to no avail.  Finally, I thought that I just feel like crying too, so I joined her.  After about 10 seconds, she stopped and looked at me like I was crazy, laid down and went to sleep.  When she woke up about 1/2 hour later, she was a different girl...

Have you watched the Jamie Oliver show, that just came out. Might be fun to watch it together as a family.

I think he is pretty cool even if he does not know about this WOL.

Did you read the last chapter of the GT book? I encourage you to read it again, Dr. D tells a great story about planting a tree and the future.   I think that story is at the end of every SWAMI too.

WE'll check it out Andrea...I like a good laugh.  I rarely watch TV because it tends to upset me but I love things like Seinfeld or mindless stuff like Friends and now The Big Bang Theory.  This stuff is good to settle my busy mind when I need an outside source of relaxation.

When I get done painting I will go get my GTD book and read it.

Excellent news.  I like the point you make about eating for the right reason....so often people who eat healthy have to defend their Healthy lifestyle.  I think feeling and believing this deeply may take away the need to explain or be swayed to eating what may not be good for you.

I was interested about the secretor test results change.  So were both by Saliva?  Or was the one that was wrong saliva and the correct by blood test?

Lin wrong saliva and correct blood I believe.  Sort of ticks me off a bit if I were to be honest.  This was no joke to me.

Yes, it is making me far less needing to explain myself.  Actually my outer/inner glow is so strong that people are really noticing and ask me how did I do it.  I've had to order so many blood type tests for folks because they all want to know how to do this.  My neighbors are slowly getting into it and believe in it 100%.  I've now done 5 other people!  Also 2 people from a message board I used to be on for cancer survivors have emailed me and asked how I got off some of my meds.  I'M A WALKING AD FOR BTD!

Quite understand the feeling ticked off, the time wasted on perhaps eating wrong food etc.
So how did you get the blood test done?  Regular doctor?  And what do you ask for?

The greatest thing that I learned is probably the most simple but hits me the hardest.  I often kvetch that I work so hard at my health via eating properly and such and yet I have little results or so I thought.  Dr. D. pointed out that taking care of one's body is self love and that is done like all true love...UNCONDITIONALLY.   I am not doing this anymore for a specific result.  I'm doing this because it is right.  I think that is just like not stealing from a store.  You don't go in a store saying...well, I'll take this today and tomorrow I'll pay for my items.  You dont steal because it is wrong...period.  I will take care of myself because it is right...period.  This has taken self doubt out of my mind which will serve me greatly when others try to influence my healthy lifestyle or if I'm feeling low.  This is how it is...period.  I can't tell you how the simplicity of that freed me.  Maybe to someone else that doesn't mean much but for me...WOW


Ok so I found this post you wrote, you told me to search you out so I did...hehehe see  I can be a great student...lol.

this is an amazing and profound post. I get that you do stuggle like i do, it is just as hard for you, but that you have choosen to take control back, to see you DO deserve goodness and have decided to take that right back.... I some how need to figure out to make me matter too...to forgive myself for things that are out of my control, and to stop looking back over my shoulder and only focus on in front of me and be at peace with that....PHEW that is a lot....ok I need a cookie!!!! hehehe just kidding ....grabbed some water instead...

This is impressive Healthy4!  I wrestled with the idea of making an appointment for many weeks.  You are right there already.  Bravo!
