I'll be happy to feel welcome! Regretfully, in reality it is not so simple.

In order for me to purchase the SWAMI express I was referred by NAP customer services to the UK distributor, whose website DOES NOT INCLUDE SWAMI EXPRESS at all!!!     

How come? A bug?  I already emailed the customer services in Wilton that the desired item is not to be found at the UK site, yet they keep telling me to buy from the UK distributor...  Put aside the bewilderment and frustration - I just wish to buy the SWAMI Express somehow. Hope my wish will be realized.

I'll appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Yaeli

Thank you Lola. Who are they? Are they agents who sell SWAMI outside the USA?
I wonder why I can't I purchase SWAMI straight like anybody else.

Thanks Lola,
It's not the costs - they just won't ship! Maybe in a few weeks time, when UK distributor has it, when the slow boat from Wilton gets there... That's what I was wondering about ... Dr. D works as fast as the wind (light?), yet when it's ready it's not there - I can't have it - NOT YET. Within a few weeks she says, which may mean 2-3 months until it is received, because they will take also time to process... So, i begged them a few mintues ago to go out of their way and send it to me from the States, because in a few weeks time my 3rd operation this year is due... That's it, see what they say.
Thanks again for your help,
Yaeli

I got my SWAMI in good time, but waited till this AM to do it.
BUT, I can't get in!!!! I even tried different versions of the user name as there is a I after a word. I tried capital i, small l, or the # 1. None worked.
We have Internet Explorer which you say is fine.  To download Firefox, does that mean it takes over the other uses of your computer or only for the SWAMI?  I started downloading it, but aborted the mission.
I am anxiously looking forward to doing this, especially since I got this weird infection, so would appreciate more fine-tuning......

Mrs T O+

We are having the same trouble, my husband received his SWAMI yesterday and in the User Name and Password they have an l .  I tried and tried and finally got it to work, we input some info and saved it.  Then when we wanted to get back in later I must have tried 15  combinations.  Now I don't really know which one worked so today when we go in I will have to write down each time what I am doing.

If I still have problems today, I will give NAP a call.

I finally got in. The thing that looked like I is 1 on my computer. Our #1 has a little 'notch' on the top.
I do have a Q about the Qs.  I don't know how to describe lactose intolerant. I know that dairy causes congestion, ear infections, constipation, etc. [I have avoided it for years. ]  Is that lactose intolerance or something else?
As to finger lengths, I know the ratios, but can't find the tape to measure them. Since it isn't required, how critical is the exact measurement?  Like most folks, they are 'alternate' but very close. Left has slightly longer index finger & right hand has the opposite.
I am awaiting your reply.  Thanks!

Also what about that 'portions' portion? I put optimal, but how will that vary based on results?
Since I have a big appetite, should I put 'larger portions' & will that have a different ratio b/c if I eat more, it is safer to have more of certain foods than others?

Glad you got in!  My computer remembered the password so the last thing I inputted popped up for him!

I am not an expert on lactose intolerance, since for years I thought I was and then it turned out after being tested that I was actually casein intolerant.  That is the protein in the milk rather than the sugar (lactose).  Someone more knowledgeable may be able to answer this for you, but it seems like your symptoms are more like the ones I have.  I also get really phelmy, having to clear my throat a lot.

I would think that the finger measurements are important to input on SWAMI.  I don't think it gives you an option to just enter ratios.

You can actually change your portion setting and go in an run your report again and see the changes.  You can always change it back.  I would think that if you raise the portions it will do it across the board on all the categories, not just favoring one group of food.  Although wouldn't it be great if it just upped carbs!!  

Hope this helps and hope my info is correct.

It didn't give me fun foods, my friends...but it's good to know what foods are really good for one's self.

TR: I was under the impression that if you pressed that last button, you were through!
It sounds like you can keep going back to change or add input, but once you pressed the last button, it's curtains!  Is that right. Dr. D?

I may just put in yes for lactose intolerant, but I think it is the protein that causes the problem, too. Thanks for the input! If I am wrong or if it affects the outcome, stop me!!!

More!     As to the personality test, I know I score high extrovert, but the other sections are mixed bags. Can I put the E in for info, but not the others. There should be a place at the bottom to write other things in.  If they don't figure, they can be left out(not computed), but I wonder how much they do.  Dr. D does so much work & we still have our Qs! Thanx, Dr. D!!!!!!

Since you can go back and edit, does that mean that SWAMI is more of a "one person use" rather than a "one time use"?  I thought once you were done, you were done, but then I saw other people saying they went back and tweaked things.  How long do you have to edit things, like weight and waist measurements before they become permanently locked?

That would be nice, but you are asking a computer program to read! My advice is take one of the online tests, or just leave it out.

You can edit most 'changeable' things pretty much forever. Some 'unchangable' things (like gender... for most people, or blood type) are locked after 24 hours.

What about the Q about taster status? It has choices of weak taster & super(I think) It doesn't have plain taster. I think I am slightly more than plain, so I'll put the super choice.
Is that right? I haven't gone back to editing, as other things are going on this week, but I did notice that my info was gone. I bet I will test out approx. 40 gatherer, 30+ hunter, & <30 explorer.  Why aren't the other options listed? I notice that some say they are a certain percentage of one GT, but not others.  It would be nice to know.
Why the exact measurements of the fingers, rather than which one is longer?

The percents do not work quite in the way you seem to be using them.

Here are some quotes from Dr. D.

Quoted Text
the percentage is not how much 'you' are 'it'.

The percentage is a measure of how much 'it' is 'you.'


Quoted Text
That percentage is part of the First Principal Component:

  
    
Quoted Text
Principal component analysis (PCA) involves a mathematical procedure that transforms a number of (possibly) correlated variables into a (smaller) number of uncorrelated variables called principal components. The first principal component accounts for as much of the variability in the data as possible, and each succeeding component accounts for as much of the remaining variability as possible.



Quoted Text
The percentage of your epigenetic variation is encapsulated in the GenoType profile seems low (35-45%).

PROBLEM

Although it might appear that this number is low, it is not a direct reflection of 'how much' you are of that GenoType, but rather a statistical first-pass description of how much of 'how and where' you vary from other individuals is contained in the Calculated GenoType.

For the more technically-minded:

In statistical terms this is called the First Principal Component. Other subsequent Principal Components also will pass through the data and often find additional correlations, but the First Principal Component will always have the highest percentage of variability encapsulation.

What is ghee considered again? An oil or a dairy?  I have it listed in both places on my swami.
I have few typos I found on mine too that I have to fix when I go back to the clinic.

Thank you C sharp. According to the above, do all the percentages total in 100%?  It sounds as if they don't have to, each type/sub-type with it's own extent of expression. If they must sum up in 100%, I am still at a loss.

You do not have any percentages of other GenoTypes to sum.

If you did have them it would not make sense to add them together.

What you have is a measurement of how well you match your calculated GenoType.  

SWAMI is going to make additional passes through your data and tailor a diet that accounts for the variances that you have.




When I give an exam students get a score indicating how well their answers match the key that I created.

If they get a score of 36% on my computer science exam, it does not imply that they will get a 64% on their history exam. They might but not necessarily.

The 36% score also does not imply that they are 36% of a computer science major.  They are either a computer science major or they are not.

I have just begun to work on my Swami and I have a few questions:

1.  On Lactose intolerance;  I cannot consume cow milk or yogurt without stomach pain, however I digest goat yogurt very well.  Does that mean that I am not lactose intolerant, but only intolerant to cow dairy?

2.  re: the question; "Are you in perimenopause/menopause?" I am past menopause and don't consider myself "in menopause".  What does Swami mean by the question?

3.  re: ethnicity;  How can we choose from all grandparents?
maternal grandmother:  ancestors were from Netherlands
maternal grandfather:  ancestors from somewhere in the British Isles
paternal grandmother:  1/2 Native American, 1/2 unknown
paternal grandfather:  1/4 Native American, 3/4 Bavaria, Rhine River



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.
