I am entirely new to SWAMI Xpress as of today. I've done some reading of the forum, but I don't think I've seen this answered:

Does the software allow you to plug in all your conditions, illnesses, sensitivities and so on?

It won't work for me if it can't design a diet, for example, that take Arginine into account, or that I am hypothyroid and should avoid Soy.

Also...  to do the GTD, do I need to know my secretor status?


thanks!

the more you know about yourself, the better and more accurate your personalized diet will be.

try this here, for starts.....see if you get asked all those questions to determine what supplements will work for your particular case.

It sometimes helpful for identifying ones GenoType.  But the book gives three methods to calculate GenoType. Two of Which do not consider secretor status. The third method sometimes needs secretor status other times it does not require it it for GenoType determination.




SWAMI Xpress does not require secretor status, but you will get more better results if your do specify it.

So, what is considered family history?  To what degree does it extend?  Parents, grandparents, aunts, great-grandparents?  Exactly what is a environmental sensitivity?  Is getting a headache from someone's perfume or the fumes when you fill the gas tank considered sensitivities?  Is eczema considered a skin "disease"?  Does it cover things like anemia?  I just ordered my SWAMI today, and now I'm wondering if I'm going to be able to answer all the questions accurately.

One or more Grandparents

First question in the lab data section.

Just answer the questions that you can (A few are mandatory-but most are not).

You can rerun the SWAMI, if you get more information later.

Ok here are my two quesions:

does being allergic to penecillin make you a person with allergies?  I don't have any other allergies.  And I think i was allergic to penecillin because I was using herbs at the time I was taking it.  I think the two mediums interacted badly and I broke out in hives.

the 2nd thing is, yes my mother has been in depression, but my Mother is a HEAVY DUTY SUGAR AND JUNK FOOD ADDICT, which I know from my own experience causes bouts of depression and anxiety, etc., etc.  So I don't really feel this qualifies as 'clinical depression' in my family, does it?

However, for myself, being a Hunter and not getting the right foods definitely throws me into depressed funks.

Good to know about the eczema.  I've never considered it a "disease" before, any more than hayfever...more like just an inherited, pain in the hiney, skin condition.

About the depression, my mother and grandma have the same problem.  I'd guess that a lot of people who are clinically depressed ended up that way because their bodies aren't able to handle stresses because of poor diet.  I think the question is looking for inherited tendencies towards depression, regardless of the cause.

poor diet is the cause of most illnesses  out there!
and that s precisely what we try to avoid by following the guidelines......

My experience tells me that there are too many lazy docs out there that don't want to bother playing detective and want to blame everything on depression or "busy mom syndrome."  Just pop this pill and you'll feel fine.  I had a doc tell me I was depressed and prescribed prozac.  After three days of that nonsense and feeling depressed I flushed the pills and found a different doc.  He ran tests and found reactive hypoglycemia.  This past time I went to the doc, she suggested I might be depressed.  I told her no, there was something physically wrong with me.  She did tests and found pernicious anemia.  Changing my diet and supplements fixed both problems.  

I'm not saying that's the case all the time, but I think it happens too often.

Thanks so much to C-Sharp for posting the list. It is more or less what the questionnaire asks that I was given for an office visit with the good doctor.

Ah, Plucky....I understand. It is a matter that needs a sensitive assessment....not just meds. Physical bases must indeed be part of that.
