Cristina, happy to have you back ..I missed you and wondered if you were okay.

You don't have to answer this if you find it intrusive, but how does one know that the issues they
are dealing with are related to genes? Whether it be the newly reset genes or prior dysfunctional genetics becoming silenced?

And just to be able to discuss this subject further in a general way for those who have had something similar happen to them, is this type of upheaval a predictable consequence of following a SWAMI or following the GTD?

I don't expect you to discuss specifics, I was just wondering how we would know to "blame"
it on genes rather than just believing that stuff happens and we somehow deal with it.  And
learn from our own experiences.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me some insight here.

Dear Chloe, there have been different situations all completely independent of each other hitting us more or less at the same time.  Sometimes, it does not rain, but it pours!!  Some of it got to do with emotional crisis happening to those dear to us, some with lifetime decisions needed to be made that in a split second nearly ruined our financial security and normally would have caused us to completely break down.  This last thing came about probably in making decisions while still clouded by the emotional stress of previous week.  It has nothing to do with body tests, that is what I tried to explain.  One outcome of all this is that now, from this Friday I am officially retired!  New life era for me, supported by gene resetting lifestyle

I understand...We don't want to blame life situations on our genes....but I'm sure  we derive strength and fortitude from the stronger foundation we now have after we've re-set our genes.

It's been said "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"..

Wishing you the best in your retirement.

Thanks Jenny and all!!  

Just an update on my progeny:

My daughter finally got her blood tests done and she ended up being a exact replica of her dad!!  Like my husband, she is a A1+, nonnie, MM!!

My son, on the other hand is tending to be the replica of me: A+ secretor.  Unfortunately the lab did not performed the complete MN and grouping tests, but I have the feeling he will end up being A2 and MN like me!!

My son's clinical tests came very normal on everything, but my daughter's is a little bit complicated.  We will be posting a new thread soon to discuss that.

Regarding myself, understandable I have put on some weight.  I think I was down to 84kg but now I am on 85.5.  Although I kept mostly compliant, I have been overeating and stuffed myself with organic peanut butter on rice cakes!  they have been my comfort food, day and night!  I tried not to neglect my vegies, so my onion, garlic, baby capsicums, turmeric, broccoli, carrot and zuccini had been my staple food with lots of  peaches and nectarines and red grapefruit when needed! Rice and quinoa were bulking up my plate most of the time.  I also ate more chicken than I should have (although still a bene in my list). So, all in all, not too bad, except for a couple of dark days where I find myself eating ice cream and crying a lot, my sins were mainly in overdoing it in the portion sizes (on the carb side of things rather than the good vegies one) and not exercising at all and finding very hard to meditate (sleep and relax)!!

Why did i not follow my own advice and came here for help? I do not know and I am not trying to find the answer to that, I accept that it is what happened and I am please I am on truck again today, and that is the main thing!

Will keep posting!!

Welcome back Christina- so happy you are here, again.  Guess what, my son let me blood test him and He is an A+, and he is very interested in following it.  I am so excited, that he is!

Not surprised at all!!! All it takes is just a bit of nonnie to shake it up
Dont worry about the extra kgs, just start where you left off and all will resume. Physiologically speaking...

Glad you're back.

Thank you girls for your welcome!  GS, nice you were able to identify your son's BT.  He is in good hands too!
You are right C_J, that nonnie thing springing up again!!  Since I used the SwamiX I originally bought for her 25th last year  (she was not ready!!) for my husband, I now placed an order for one for her again.  Hopefully this time she will take it seriously and appreciate the real value of this gift.  I want to let her start the thread herself, she is a very smart young lady in control of her destiny, I know she will not have it any other way.  You will all love her!!

Great to see you're back!  

Interesting how your children seem to have followed their parents in genotypes.  Sounds like the marble rolling down the hill the same way again.  Your daughter being complicated - well that's us women and goes without saying for nonnies too!  Hope we can all help her.

As you can see from my shield, I got my test results finally   (Pathlabs) and "thanks to a little help from my friends" am doing really well now.

Have a question for you, when you changed to teacher I hope you got your beloved honey back?

Are you eating those beneficial cheeses?  Lovin' the cheese at the mo, even parmesan which I thought I didn't like but it was just the pregrated stuff is yuck, a block you grate youself is yum.
I agree turmeric is great too, why not paint the world orange.  Lovin' my food choices and feeling great.

When I found out nonnieness wheat and corn had to go and that's the thing that made me so much better, of course.  Inflammation is way down.  So hope your daughter can do that, maybe switch to spelt while you're waiting for SWAMI.

Hi Symbi,

Glad you finally managed to get your tests done and Swamied!!!  Nonnie Explorer!!  We do have in common the Blood type and MN values!  Have you done your A1/A2 grouping?
Swami only gave me a handful of cheeses: Parmesan, Pecorino, Romano, Feta, Gouda plus Manchego, Muenster and Provolone which I do not know at all.  Yes, I also love my food choices, it makes it easier to stay mostly compliant during stressful situations.  I am so happy to hear you are now on the mend!  and I love your new photo too!

Thanks for the reminder Lola.  I just did a re-run of my Swami and yes, it has given me the Teacher label, which I humble accept and you will soon see under my shield.

And to finish answering Symbi's question, yes, Honey is in my bene list with Barley Malt as the diamond sweet (not use it much though with home produce honey taking priority) and Maple syrup in the neutrals.  I only use a bit of  these though on my peanut butter rice cakes.  Coffee and carob are there as diamonds, chocolate as black dot and red wine as beneficial.  As I said earlier: Love my choices!

Thanks Cristina!  It was nice to see your photo pic and many other familiar faces now on here which gave me that idea.  I also had a thread called Symbi's Swami but I'm really not trying to copy you! well I couldn't.  You write some great and very inspiring stuff.

There was a thread in little fishes where lots of people where wondering where you were and missing you but I searched and it's gone now.     Someone found out you had a new pet, then we all guessed what kind.  Then when it was a dog I speculated that you would have gotten a big dog to be an intelligent companion.  

I read your thread about your dog, what a beautiful animal!  Certainly will keep you walking and fit, no choice about that.  Happy you got honey back!

Write away!!!!  Please, you will not be copying me or anybody else, I am not doing anything new, many others done similar before ...  We just have to do what suit us and not let the assuming things stop us.  Follow your intuition or judgment, whatever suits best.  You, yourself are a wonderful inspiration for me and many here too, carrying your lot with cheerfulness and time to spare for others always.  Keep Symbi's SwamiX alive too!! and Metta's and Victoria's and anyone else who feels like recording their journey ...  I have to do mine because I need to and hope others see the good side of it too ...  thanks again Symbi for your kind words

I couldn't think of what to call the thread so Symbi's SWAMI was it.  Not that original!  

I'm glad you love your new food choices and I love mine too.  So much more variety than the out of the book Explorer diet or even the BTD.  Knowing nonnieness is a gift and health has improved so much since knowing that.

Loving your food choices is a good way to know that you make the right selections in SWAMI Express hey!  Also when you get great results and feel good.

Well, I placed my order for a few protocol packs today, so with luck I should get them by the end of this week!  The immune boost, the healthy joint, the calm focus, hostonia custiguard, the gentle detox packs should find their way to our home soon!!  Oh gosh we need all the help we can get at the moment!!

And, just for the record DGD is now going through a middle year infection and onto antibiotics!  sounds very chesty too, although the doctor said it is clear there, just very mucky.  And ... we still do not know her blood type ...  patience, patience, nostril breathing and where is that Calm Focus pack?  Cant wait for it to arrive!!

BLOOD TYPE FACTOID: While any blood type can have an ear infection (or recurrent ear infections), blood type A children (or even children who have a blood type A mother) are much more routinely affected.
