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!!  
Well I guess it is May after all??!! Seriously... Hope she gets better soon

She seems better today, I guess that is what antibiotics do, suppress the symptoms quick enough!!  Actually, I have to do a search around here find out previous posts on what kind of supps you can give to kids that young, particularly when you do not know their blood group.  ...

Today is Friday night here and my powerpacksupps did not arrived!  Guess they will be here next week!! Gina sent us today a home typing kit which we intend to use on DGD to finally determine her ABO.  At least that will give us a leg up on how to feed her to help her with these ear infections and chesty colds.  

I had a big kitchen cleanup today, reorganizing the pantry (in preparation for our new permanent guests), taking things of boxes and putting them in the glass jars I have been collecting.  Now everything is easy to find and handy for DD or myself to prepare our fares.  Tonight is the start of a new era on our lives...

The Teacher 3 pack is really helping.  Feeling positive, energized and at peace.  Those walks early in the morning down the beach with DH and Zuri are a treat!! Zuri is coming along very well, balancing our lives ...  

I had a quick peek at 'Aging, fight it with the Blood type Diet' and no surprising the diet Swami gave me is almost a carbon copy of what I should follow to maintain a youthful brain function       It has also told me I should probably cut down a bit on the Dates ( I love them and tend to eat too many of them!).

I went to the chiro today for that follow up visit and she noticed great improvement, needing to fix just a couple of stiff spots (I know, i have not re-started my Pilates yet, too much going on!), she wants to see me in a fortnight and then continue with the monthly check ups!     Lucky one of us is bringing $$$ (DH   ), can still afford these therapies... I want to think that as time moves on, with all the gene resetting happening, this true to type lifestyle will be all the therapy we will need to maintain our youthful bodies.

Hey.. are you calling me short?....
I wish I was taller my O sister got the height.

Well if I was taller I may never have married Jeff cause he is just a tad taller then me and that would not have been good, he is my soul-mate. You should have seen him at the conference fingerprinting people he was amazing.


My Warrior daughter is 5' 2" and 90lbs. Maybe she was supposed to be taller but my poor diet kept her short.

Ok, the packs are here, they arrived early this week!!  I have been trying to work out some sort of plan as to what to take when, since I have a few things going on with me at the moment.  The good news is that flexibility has been restored to my neck, so I will take the Health Joints pack supps 3 times a week only, to coincide with the days I exercise most.  I decided that the Calm Focus pack with Histonia and Cortiguard supps are the ones my body will benefit the most at the current moment.  I am starting with a single daily dose to complement my daily Teacher pack.  Also, every now and then I have a Proberry cap to fortify my defenses against the flueish symptoms shown by the rest of the not=so compliant family!!

The wonderful news is that I am back to the weight I was a couple of months ago, before I went 'sideways' instead of forward!!  And it is not just water loss, I make sure to keep myself well hydrated and keep an eye on signs that may indicate otherwise!!   Is wonderful how the body recovers given the right environment and in a matter of days!

I have had Histonia and Corgiguard for only a few days now (since Tuesday) and I can feel the effects of it already!!  I do not know how to describe it properly, but there are changes happening with the way I process emotions and how attach or detach I get to situations.  Now,  eating true to type should also take me there, but the supps are acellerating the process, putting it together in a consistent way.  The supps are showing me the feel of a better health state, paving the way for me to recognize the signs easier when I am using just food, like being able to identify straight away the foods that take me out of this wonderful feel in me.  
PS: Just in case you get the wrong idea: I am still 100$ compliant 100# of the time (trying to anyway).

100% compliant 100% of the time, that is my focus, is what I meant to say with previous post!
Today is a special day!!! We finally got around to using blood typing home kit from NAP on DGD!!! and the result is: A negative!!

So both husband and I are A positives, DS and DD are both A positive, DD's daughter is A negative (as we just find out).  This probably means that her dad is negative something: maybe O negativer?, or AB negative? or A negative? with my daughter A positive they produced an A negative child.  It took a while for the first circle to aglutinate, but it did eventually! It started changing about 30 or 40 seconds, but not much.  A few minutes later it was more evident the granier look.  The other 3 circles stayed smooth full blood color.

At least from now on we will know what is the correct lifestyle for her!  Too young to genotype, only 4 years old almost, but the basic blood type diet will be the right thing to follow.  That is the impression I have got from previous thread here.

Today DD cook dinner and it was very nice:  stir fry salmon  and vegies (carrots, bok choi, onions) with basmatic rice and beautiful fresh salad with lettuce, celery, fresh carrots and onions, fresh peccorino cheese and a honey and lemon dressing.

But, as I sat with family and friend at the table, it was not just the meal I was savoring, but the fact that in preparing that meal, DD showed a lot of care in cooking it right for my type: she drilled me with questions like, can you eat tomatoes? can you eat salmon? is it OK to use microwave? can you eat basmati rice? And so, she made sure my salad did not have tomatoes, my salmon was stir fried with the vegies and not microwaved.  That was so sweet!!  But, the icing on the cake was that, although there was chilli sauce at the table for her chilli loving visiting friend, DD (a chilli loving soul herself), who was sitting next to me, turn her face to me and ask: I cannot eat chilli now, can't I?  And she smiled and continue eating her chilliless meal!! She knew the answer was no, according to her warrior swami lists.  

Today was perfect and I savor this moment as one of many to come ...

Maybe not. Both of my parents are Rh+ and they produced two Rh- children.

All it takes is two parents with Rh(-) alleles, even if they are Rh(+), passing the negative allele to the child(ren).  The percentage goes up if one of the parents is Rh(-)...

Good on your DD...  She is learning to eat for her type in spite of previous likes.

Cristina, how wonderful to have so many As around you...it must make meals, shopping and cooking so much easier. I don't think the + and - make enormous differences in the diets, unless they tip you over into another Genotype perchance?   xxx

Well she is only 3 years old, will be 4 in august (DGD).  We have just find out she is A negative and I was just wondering how it may affect her diet?  I wonder if there is already a thread on 'feeding A children'?  If not we may start one ...  BTW, she is our DGD.

Thanks for your feedback.  Yes,  an A household makes life and shopping easier, even though we are a mixture of GTs, secretors, non secretors and now positives and negatives!!!  the difference is in the detail and that sometimes can be confusing and harder to retain, remember!  I still take my lists shopping, 2 warriors and teacher.  Sometimes is funny, not long ago I had some shopper approached me thinking I was buying for on-line customers or something, with 'such long shopping lists' ...     I told her I was on the on=line BTD diet and gave her details of this forum!!!

I wonder if she ever came here?  You are looking good as usual (those lab results were very pleasing)...

That's great news!  Hope Metta feels better on the diet and I know you be relieved too.  You're lucky to have so many of the same type in your house.  Someone could ask you each what blood type are you?  Eh? Eh? (sounds like "A") !  

If she's an Explorer like me she may be able to have crushed dried chillies (neutral for me) and paprika.  I'm glad I can still have my favorite meal now homemade taco with lamb instead of beef and tomatoes are back, !, but will have to make my own tortillas.  That will be fun!  

Sounds like you may need to make a combination list somehow for shopping, maybe you could copy info from the SWAMI pdfs and compile it together into excel.  It would be good if SWAMI let you make a combination list from all the different members of your household (entering their SWAMI numbers).  I know it would be a lot of programming but would be good for all SWAMI'd households.  I wonder if someone may read this...

Oh Symbi, as usual you are full of great ideas!!  I have done those combination lists many times, but with the GT changing in the past (teacher, warrior and sx teacher) I sort of gave up.  I should get around to it soon.  DD is a warrior, no doubts about it, at least for now, she even has the arches!!!  DGD, do not know, too young to tell, we used the home kit, so we do not know her secretor status either ...

Yeah it would be difficult making those lists when your diet changes with your improving health.  

Glad to hear she's got a definite genotype .  Does she have the longer lower legs and the elongated head shape?
I have arches too, on my eyebrows and on my fingers, but I'm an Explorer.  Also know Heidi has arches and she's an explorer too.  Man I spent a lot of time trying to measure my head shape, but the leg measurements also put me into Explorer and so many of the health concerns, except slow bowels which the arches point to (he he).  I think my Dad was a Warrior.  

I know two brothers that are so different to each other and it's amazing how epigenetics (what happens in the womb) and not just genetics is so important.  Have a good day!

She is only 37% warrior, but I say her needs make her enough warrior for Swami to label her that.  Early days though, see how she goes with it ...

Here are her SwamiX calculations:


 Your ABO blood type (A) is characteristic of Warrior.
 Rh positive blood type is often observed in Warrior GenoType.
Strength Testing, First Pass
 Caffeine insensitive /Characteristic of Warrior.
 Gynic upper leg space in women /Characteristic of Warrior.
 Two or more arch patterns /Characteristic of Warrior.
 Wide gonial angle /Characteristic of Warrior.
Strength Testing, Second Pass
 Characteristic A subgroup (A1) /Characteristic of Warrior.
 Ethnicity strength points /Characteristic of Warrior.
 Lactose tolerance /Characteristic of Warrior.
 MBI EI(E) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.
 MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.
 MBI SN(N) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.

I won't pick on you Cristina, because you've got a Warrior in the house!  Just kidding I wouldn't pick on you anyway.  

The jaw, personality and coffee is a big sign.

Well, regarding the coffee, that is a bit neither here not there.  She says she can drink it without bothering her, she used to drink instant I think, but she does not drink coffee at all, she does not like it, she rather have a cup of tea, black tea (also bene with green and a few others) instead.     

And symbi, there are actually two warriors in the house (DH and DD)    but they are both nonies anyway, so you have nothing to worry about!!!

I have just finished re-arranging my office area, which at the moment is sharing the space with our lounge/TV area.  Lots of furniture pushing, dusting, floor sweeping, packing / unpacking, with beautiful spa soft relaxing music in the background.  Time went by fast, started this morning, 6 hours of intensive housework.  Now, I am sitting at my uncluttered desk, with my tidy space, windows open, birds chirping outside against the inside soft music backdrop, sunny day, beautiful day, lots to be thankful for in life ... DD and kids are out, just hubby and I, he is working at his office ...  We are different but the same, bury our sorrows on work,  bad news today, his sister passed on ... poor soul ... big C took her in 5 months, liver ...   Like Lola said, at least it was short suffering, consolation there for the ones left behind ...

It sort of makes you appreciate and value more than ever being in this journey.  It puts in perspective the great effort of keeping avoids out of our diet, that exercise routine going and the relaxation moments ticking ... Look at the alternative!!!  Yes, we have a lot of work ahead of us, pushing the avoids away, packing in the benes, shaking up the bones and lets not forget to practice the alternate nose breathing ...

Yes, a lot of work, but in this scenario, sounds like fun!!! Bring it on!!!  Down with those  bad genes!!!  No chance to get hold of this household!!!  Thanks again Dr D for  brighting up our future, thanks, thanks, thanks ...

Sad to hear that Cristina.  You are taking it well with your usual aplomb.  So right what you say about the long term benefits of a healthy lifestyle.  

Glad you rearranged the place, you're inspiring me to finish my rearranging here.  Going through all our storage and cleaning cupboards etc.  It's taking a while but we'll get there!
