Never a judgment or laughter here about determining genotypes because I've been there
myself....I thought I was a Warrior for 18 months.  Did very poorly on that diet.

Teacher fits me but I think a combination of Teacher/Explorer might fit me better...I
still question the dairy and eggs and lots of soy.  None of those foods work really well.
Yet, I don't like meat nor would I want to eat much of it.  My SWAMI doesn't give me
any meats at all. I do very well on plants, fish, poultry, nuts, seeds,beans, fruits and veggies.

Cristina....Squab is a little bird, ie, pigeon.

"and Squab (what is that?)"

A young, newly hatched, or unfledged pigeon.

Squab is a super diamond for me, but I can't see myself ever eating one  

The nice thing about SWAMI Xpress is that we can keep tinkering with it until we are sure we have everything right. Teacher/Warrior, it doesn't really matter all that much as long as the resulting diet "fits" and makes you feel great. Although you might want to hold off on printing out the food lists until all your doubts are cleared up

Right on all counts Heidi.  I cannot see myself eating pigeon either! I have had goat milk before, but I have never eaten goat meat.  I do not even know if you can get that here.  It is only neutral though, so not important to have  
All I print is the shopping lists, my DGD uses the back of the pages for her colourings,  at least they do not go to waste...

Chloe, thanks for your encouraging words too. Goat is the only meat shown and I do not think I bother either. I actually asked Bob at pharmacal to change the upper, lower get ratio for me, see what happens ...

Chloe, Chandon you got me thinking.  If I am guided by food reactions, I could use the placing of Kefir as a determinant of suitable food lists.  I have tried Kefir in the past and I associate with a tremendous built up of mucous!!!  The one that you feel at the back of your throat on a continuous drip!!  Warrior places that in the superbenes or diamond while Teacher sends it to the avoids!!  ding ding (warning bells!!).


Glad to be of service! Getting all the right info into SWAMI is no easy task. It's difficult to interpret some fingerprints, for one, and measuring has its challenges too. I think the one area where my measurements are REALLY close is my fingers. If I were to switch which ones are longer, I'd think I'd be even more of an Explorer, because for me, my index fingers are a bit longer or are equal.

Yes, in some ways, how we react to certain foods could tell us a lot, especially if we already have SWAMI. For me, the brewer's yeast became one of those foods. It seems to really overwhelm me. Still, now, with my Explorer SWAMI, soy is being downplayed, but I do have a couple of soy superfoods and the rest are neutral.

At the same time, how we react to a food, like soy (a common allergan), may not be indicative whether we're Explorer-like. I think what our primary "issue" is is most telling. For me, it has become clear that I have to deal with my liver and that trumps dealing with my GI tract, so I am an Explorer, yet I do get to eat certain classic Explorer no-nos, like chicken eggs, soy, wine, avocados, and chocolate, plus even some non-Explorer cheeses.

For some reason, I guess because of my allergies, my health has forced me to reevaluate what I am. If something like that doesn't come to the fore, it might be difficult to know that you're on the wrong diet. Lack of weight loss, if that is what we want, can be another thing that gets us thinking.

I think being an INFP--the idealist healer--makes us want to keep reevaluating ourselves and our diets, to be the best that we can be and to nurture ourselves. I think the INFP is an optimist, so to me, it is not a failure at all to have tried something that didn't work. I think it's a good learning experience that helps us to know ourselves better.

I love that balloon method of looking at fingerprints.  I cannot wait to try it.  

Chandon, did you have many whorls?

Cristina did you have any?

I have 4 for sure....two prints aren't readable at all.

I have to try that balloon method, but I do not think I have any whorls.  Thee are certainly no circles or ovals or any 'enclosing'type of ridges in my fingers, except for one that is like a ridge that got divided in two and closed inside the very top of a ulnar or radial loop.  I have to check if the balloon method is explained, do you imprint on a deflated balloon and then inflate it? go to check that link again ...

It seems my fingerprints are harder to read than before! Another sign that the Teacher plan wasn't working. I am pretty certain I have 3 whorls and the remainder are loops, unless 1 is considered a composite. The odd print is the only radial loop whereas the rest are ulner. (I think I am correct in this.)

1 of my whorls is very rounded and the other 2 are less so.

Cristina, when you find that link with the balloon fingerprinting, could you please share
it with us here.  I seemed to have forgotten where I first saw it.  It would seem logical
that you imprint balloon before it's blown up and when you blow it up, the fingerprints
are enlarged to where you can see more detail.  If you have no whorls, could you still
possibly be a Teacher?  I'm a Teacher without visible wrist tendons...Do you have
visible wrist tendons?

Chandon, since August when I started my SWAMI for Teacher, I don't see any progress
in being able to read those unreadable fingerprints.  Dr. D says it can take a year...Sit
back, put your feet up and wait with me.  This is kind of like watching paint dry...

Chloe, it is just back a page in this thread. A post by C#.
And yes, you put the print on the balloon and then blow it up. It says to use a Sharpie, not sure how well that comes off

No worries Cristina,

They're all healthy diets in SWAMI so you can't really go wrong.  You've been losing weight and feeling good and blood results good, wow  , you mean you could be even better!     

Here are some good links about fingerprints.  
http://dhi.health.state.nm.us/elibrary/cchspmanual/fingerprint_manual.pdf
http://www.policensw.com/info/fingerprints/finger07.html

I have 2 - 4 tented arches (2 have loops as well  ) which are pretty rare and on the thumbs double loops - that are actually counted as whorls.  So I have signs of teacher and warrior on my fingers, also non-matching index fingers, sign of an Explorer.  Fingers in each pie you could say!  

Surprised you don't have any whorls, being possibly a teacher, maybe you do but didn't know it?

I see warrior in you (persuing research or mental tasks hard) and Teacher (being into details), so not much help there    SWAMI will know

BTW got my blood test results back and all within normal limits, sodium, calcium and bicarbonate still in the lower edge of normal, so I'll keep dosing up on those.  So happy to see my kidney filtering rate seems to be higher, must be cos I'm not clogging them with acids any more

Girls and lads, happy new year to you all.  We are having a quiet one here with youngsters doing their own thing somewhere else ...

Thanks Cristina! Forgot to say, thought I was blood type B at first and wrote lists and all, remembered my blood test result wrongly lol.  Happy new year!  We're having a quiet one at home too (once G goes to bed lol).

SwamiX A2+ in your GT label looks pretty slick and modern.  

Jenny, Possum and all - happy new year.  Here's to a healthy and happy and prosperous 2010 (that sounds good too)

Mp matter how hard I try my imagination, I do not see any whorls on my fingers and there are no Arches either, just standish right angle loop in one finger and pretty clear radial or ulnar loops for the rest (after comparing them with those links you posted Symbi, thanks). So, at the moment I am a Swami Teacher opting to stay away from goats and pigeons, but quite happy with the rest of her food choices

Wow Christina, it certainly has been an interesting journey for you     I wonder if, when I get swarmi, whether much will change for myself as I've been such a classic textbook case of O Explorer (Jane Public's sister!)

Thanks for your sharing it is interesting and also helps us

lol.  Clever you!  Pidgeons have been known to leave nasty deposits all over and goats are likely to eat your shirt.  ha ha  
That's good you don't have whorls - less cancer risk    You may have a bit of explorer in you with Radial loops.  The sideways loop sounds interesting - can you find an example to show us?

Shells - that's cute (and lucky).  Must be good to have a famous sister.       

As I munch on a bowl of oatmeal, I curse my fingerprint arches.  I have slower bowels than the busses on the local bus service !  ha ha

I'm ROF laughing ...After the comment re the pigeons leaving nasty deposits & you having slower bowels than the busses on the local service... Just wanna know (or maybe not) what sort of deposits the busses make...) I guess they have been known to leave skid marks
