Has anyone had problems with their genharmonic food combinations?  This is my fourth week following my SWAMI, but first week I did any of the genharmonic stuff.  The first day I felt great, as the week progressed I've found that I feel bloated after I eat the combos, my heart rate is faster, and elimination is harder.  Is this just detox symptoms?  The only new foods I am eating (that I haven't had many times before) are sesame seeds (unhulled) and bok choy.

Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks

Carnivore,

I had problems within the first few days of eating Hunter genoharmonic foods.  I immediately had a re-occurrence of pitting edema.  This is not detox, (for my body anyway) this happens when I have either eaten, smelled or touched an allergen.  My gut feeling was that it was watermelon seeds that were doing it, I had started to add them in genohamonic combos.  I had dried them myself and also I bought watermelon seed tea.

That is what prompted me to re-measure having my husband do all the measurements with no interference from me.  The result was that I am an Explorer.   Funny that watermelon seed is not on the genoharmonic food lists for me as an Explorer, so maybe I was right.

I had been on the Hunter diet for more than a year and had some initial weight loss but then it crept back on.  I felt great though so I continued.  Even eating SWAMI-Hunter food list I was fine.  It wasn't until I began the SWAMI-Hunter genoharmonic combos that made me realize that something wasn't right.   I didn't let SWAMI determine my genotype, I entered that I was a  Hunter because that is what I believed I was.  When we re-entered using my husband's results for me, we let SWAMI determine my genotype and it came up Explorer.

Following my SWAMI-Explorer list so far the weight is in the downward direction, so I am very happy.
My SWAMI-Explorer is a good combination of Explorer and Hunter which makes sense, because I felt great on Hunter also, even though the weight issue wasn't working.  I am thankful for the whole experience though, this really is a learning experience.

Your symptoms do not sound to me like detox symptoms, but rather intolerance or sensitivity issues.  Did you let SWAMI choose your genotype or enter your genotype yourself?

What are your GenoHarmonic combinations trying to accomplish?

You can tell this from the heading immediately below the "Geno Harmonic Foods" heading (and tuning fork image).

After the heading it will explain what this heading means and how these combinations will help reset your genes to accomplish these goals.

The heading and the description are immediately before the listing of Geno Harmonic foods. (Top of the page if using a printout).

Hi Tea Rose,

When I did the advanced calculators, I was a gatherer.  When I did the test on the old genotype website, being a secretor was the dividing line between gatherer and explorer (it made me a gatherer).  I let SWAMI pick, and got 42% Explorer.  

Ive been trying to follow the Explorer/Type O hybrid SWAMI gave me as close as I can and Ive been feeling increasingly better each week up until this week.  This week I changed my menu around, and added sesame seeds to my buffalo at lunch (genharmonic) and had catfish (or lamb) for dinner with zucchini, bok choy, and cranberry juice (the veggies and juice are genharmonic for both proteins).  The only food that I have not regularly consumed before is the sesame seeds.  

Besides having more energy and feeling better, I am seeing nice downward changes in weight and even more so in inches since I started my SWAMI and dont want anything to disrupt the trend

Hi C_sharp,

Enhancing Cellular Detoxification is the genharmonic relationship that it lists.  I let SWAMI pick .

Thanks

Carnivore,

Maybe you are just sensitive to sesame seeds or mold on them.  Were they Organic toasted?  Could you be reacting to something on the seeds or maybe the seeds themselves?

When I got bloated after eating genoharmonic foods it was a red flag waving that told me something was not right.  So that is when I started to doubt my measurements and gave the job over to someone else.  I figured it wouldn't hurt.  I have heard advice on this forum to try  both diets and see how you feel, so I figured "what the heck".  I am so glad that I did.

Of course this might now be what is going on with you, but I just thought I would share my experience.  

I really hope that you find some answers, I know how disheartening it can be to be doing well and then all the sudden to start retaining water again.  Keep searching, your own intuition on this is your best guide!

Tea Rose,

I re measured this weekend, thinking about your story (and the "tip to tip thread on leg measurments), and I am now a Hunter.  That's the one genotype for an O that I had completely ruled out.  I don't match most of the Hunter profile, but I trust SWAMI, and there aren't huge changes to my foods, but little tweaks so I'm going to give the Hunter diet a try and see if that works better.

Thursday was the last day I ate the sesame seeds and I feel much better.  I think I'd better leave them alone  

Thanks for your advice!

Hi Carnivore,

Funny - you became a Hunter and I became an Explorer!  We switched .

I'm glad that you are feeling better.  I'm just curious - what are sesame seeds rated on your SWAMI-Hunter?  In the book under the Hunter diet they are diamonds.

I will be interested to hear how the Hunter Genoharmonic foods work for you.

Also, what measurements changed that made you a Hunter, was it just the leg measurement?

Ha!  Just made the connection with your name!  That says it all now that you are a Hunter

Hi Tea Rose,

Sesame seeds are now a diamond for me- on my Explorer swami they were a neutral.  Most of the genharmonic combinations are the same as before, but I lost the fish combinations I was eating, and the emphasis (enhancing cellular detoxification) has not changed.  The only major dietary changes are more poultry, more superfoods in fish and fruit, less dairy, and even less carbs.  I had hoped for an increase in red meat servings, but it stayed at 3 servings per week  

The swami changes I made were the lower leg length (longer instead of equal), ethnicity (Western European instead of Central), added my jaw angle (narrow), updated my weight and measurements and my family medical history.  I had a "good" association with Explorer before (42%) but these changes were enough to give me a "strong" association with Hunter (46%).

I've been stuck at the same weight for the last 3 weeks even though I've lost a lot of inches, so hopefully my Hunter Swami tweaks will be enough to break the plateau.

My name certainly does fit- I guess my subconscious knew it long before I did!

Carnivore,

Maybe we should not be so quick to blame the sesame seeds for you and the watermelon seeds for me.  I know I have a tendency to always think that one food is the problem, but maybe it was a combination of foods.  

I hope that you will keep us up-to-date on how your new plan works for you!
