OK, it arrived!!  After all this time and now I have to wait some more to get my secretor status.
In the meantime I'll be playing with it and going with the majority of the population, I will use secretor value.

Both my parents are descendants of immigrants from Italy and Spain, so I am ticking 'Southern European' for ethnicicity.  OK?

Hi Cristina, sounds exciting. I am curious to know what % of teacher the SwamiXpress will accord to you, and what major changes in your regular teacher diet will it make. Looking forward to know the results. I am as eager as you are!

It looks like swami is making me a Teacher, secretor or non, I tried them both.  But I did not get a chance to check the food plans/cookbook because Swami has been optimized to use Mozilla and I am using Explorer.  So here I logoff to download Mozilla and get back into swami.

Jenny,

I have not done SwamiXpress as yet and do not have plans to do it in the near future too. Since all those who are doing it are reporting % (Jumari? just did it too) without fail. Possibly, some of our friends can tell you how to see it?

Jenny,
You will find the percentage on your report, a couple of screens down where is talking about your Genotype under RESULTs section.  In one of my reports it is in the 4th page.

Yes, I have printed 2 reports, one for secretor and the other one non-secretor.

When choosing secretor status I get a 45% (Good Association) with the GT3 Teacher Genotype.

When I choose non-secretor I get 41% (again good association) with the GT3 Teacher Genotype.

I have not have time to digest the lot yet, but a quick skim through the reports indicates that the diet choices have expanded and I have more options than the GT book (except for dairy).

AT first impression, if I were to choose one, I will keep the nonnie diet plan, I get tomatos ( no ketchup or tomato juice), I get peaches, strawberries, apples, lots of juices and red wine.  All diamonds.

In the dairy department I gain Feta and lost to the Black Dot category most of the GTD cheeses in both reports. No Neutral in the non-secretor report while I gained Goat milk in the secretor report under neutrals.

No Superfood or Neutral meats for secretor, but I have 3 choices with a diamond in the non-secretor.

Because by the time they send me the saliva test kit, perform the test, send the specimen and get results back it may take at least a couple of weeks, I will be compiling a 'common' ground list of items to get me through.

My portion sizes are small in the range of 'smaller than the palm of my hand' and quater cups or single tbsps per week!!!  I will check the forum first to see if there are comments or answers regarding my queries, otherwise I will keep on posting them here.

So we have one more case of confirmed "philanthropist" among us! The portion sizes recommended are possibly linked to your weight loss target? May be the sizes go up once you are around the expected weight?

I thought all of my 1/4-cup and Tbsp foods were "Weekly" but it turned out some of them are "Daily". Big sigh of relief.

My First Swami breakfast!!

warm lemon water 1st thing in the morning. (missed the walk today, got up at 6:00am, record late time for me!!  And I went to bed at 9:30pm last night.  Is my body using more hours to sleep now? Walked up as usual feeling great. Now back to the breaky:

Yogi berries (SF), currants (SF) (demoted to BlackDots thanks to C_Sharp advice below), some plain yogurt (D), 1 small sliced kiwi  fruit (D), a few sliced strawberries (SF).  Sprinkled Chia and pumpkin seeds (both neutrals but love to have them back good vitamins contributions), and flaxseeds (D).

2 Diamonds+ 3 SuperFoods + 3 Neutrals + (1 Hidden Black Dot)= One plateful of yummy Swami medicine taken under a beautiful sun for a boost of hormones!!

Lets talk portions:
I have created a printout of Swami suggested portions for each category.  I have stuck this to the fridge and pantry door, so they are on my face, grabbing my attention when I most need it.

But, I do not walk around with a measuring cup and a spoon in my hand. A little bit more of this, a little bit less of that, knowing that I am being honest, truthful and closest to the diet as possible, using the right positive energy when putting food in my plate or glass, with the feeling of doing the right thing and with my eye on the writings on the wall and fridge, is more important to me.  I know it is what keeps me going ...

I weight myself today and I am proud to annouce that I have been demoted to the very healthy 87s: 87.5kg.  That may sound like a lot to some, particularly when I am only 1.56m, but looking behind an unhealthy over 95kg a few weeks ago, this is big!! very big!! I owe it all to Dr D's GTD system, Teacher GT.  It has been an easy, effortlessly ride.

I am expecting nothing less from SwamiXpress and today marks the beginning of it.

(Although I missed the walk this morning, I will be compensating with some more reboundings later on.)

You may already be aware of this, but just in case you were not. The currants referred to in the blood type diet and GenoType (and I presume SWAMI as well) do not refer to small raisins.

Instead they are small red, black, or white berries similar to gooseberries.

Typebase explains the difference between currants which are small dried grapes and the berries:

My stragegy to fight hunger cravings:

Well, doing what Dr D and many wise people out there have been telling us for ages: Use our grinding devices before we send the fuel down the digestive ride.

Last night we had steamed brown rice (cooked on rice cooker) and tossed on an iron pot with some dry curry, sage (D), sea salt and broccoli and enough water to make it nice and saucy (very tasty). We accompanied this with grilled portobello mushrooms filled with tamari sause, minced onion and garlic. A few leaves of lettuce and grated Romano cheese completed the dish.
I served a plate for myself and a plate for DH.  We sat down to enjoy our meal.  I like to enjoy my meal, eat slowly and chew it, chew it, chew it before I take my next mouthful.  Our servings were generous, fill my plate and I tend to give hubby a bit bigger serving, thinking his male constitution can handle it better.  Well, before I had a chance to finish my serving, DH finish his first plate, had time to get up and munch on something else in the kitchen while he dish his second serve, sat down and finish his second serve, a few minutes before a finished my first serve.

The interesting thing is that, I could hardly finish my serving.  I completed the meal feeling very satisfied and did not need to eat anything else for the rest of the night.  Needles to say, within the hour, DH was munching on Apples, kiwis, nuts, flaxseed bread ...

I should be happy though, at least he is now eating his teacher food, since it is all he can find at home now ... He is starting to get the message now, at least he is asking if this is OK or not to eat ...

I used to behave like that, living with this constant hunger, sloping butter on bread all day, craving for chocolate and eating whole bars on my own.  Feeling the hollow feeling in my tummy, and the desperation of covering it up with food ... Those were the bad old days ... It seems so far away now ...

C_Sharp, Thanks for the advice.  I did not know that there were two different fruits for currants and it did not occurred to me to check Typebase for it.  I have contacted the suppliers to confirm if our currants are the grape or berry type, but I suspect it is the grape type.  I am waiting for their reply.

In the meantime, I demote them from SF to BD (Black Dot, same category as Grapes in my swami).

Didn't the tip of the day for teachers recently mention using the typical dried currant that we readily find? I think it said they were like raisins but smaller.

Could some of the moderators maybe check this?  I usually download those tips, but I missed a few and the one you mentioned was one of them ...  But Currants do get mentioned for teachers in at least one I have (to sweeten up yogurt), but not explanation on them.

The tip of the day data is not organized in search a way that I can search it (or even access it, beyond the current day).

The tip of the day material used to be emailed by WaterFront Media to a mailing list. When this was done it was noted that some of the tips contained advice that was counter to the GenoType diet book. I do not know if all the errors were edited out after WaterFront Media no longer controlled the GenoType diet site.

As a teacher I keep hoping to find grapes and dried grapes that would not be avoids. But I think the reason currants are diamonds is they are not derived from a grape.

Oooops! Reality check!!  And I thought that Dr D himself was putting up these tips!!     I still find most of them useful and appropriate, but I will be keeping a weary eye on their content though ...

Subtle changes:
I made some changes to SwamiXpress personal medical history remembering that I had a duodenal ulcer in my early twenties (I ticked digestive problems) although it got fixed then and its been fine since; also considering the blood result with the slightly elevated liver enzymes, I also ticked the appropriate box.  After these changes I reset the corresponding calculating fields to allow Swami to define the best diet report.

The result produced some subtle changes with more cheeses, vegies like Pepper Bell moving from superfood to the Avoids list, Yogurt although still a SF is not a diamond any more, but the cheeses are. And my suggested supplements stayed the same.  

Interesting ...
Wonderful to have the doctor at home!!

Today I decided to update Swami with new values.  My weight has been in the low 87kg the whole week, today 87.0 so I decided it was time to record this progress.  OK, the weight is not moving fast, but I do not think I want that at this stage, with the level of activity I am doing (I probably need to increase that a bit - did anyone say something about As having it hard to focus on exercise?) and not taking any supplements yet.
The tape measurements are keeping me very happy though.  I do not know what is going on, but I lost 3 more centimetres off the waist and 2cm from the hips. I am very, very happy ...

Hopefully my supplements will get here today, that may help to safely speed up things a bit.

Since I recorded my medical history in SwamiX, the GT% values changed a bit compare to my earlier report here:  41% for non secretor and 44% for secretor.  Still both very good associations.

Have you noticed my Avatar is still showing Sec? I am living it there even though I do not know what I am.  I will have to change it later, so why bother now?  I am sort of doing the nonnie diet though, go with the hunch.

Today I had a one-two punch antioxidant breakfast full of color and rextures: yogurt, strawberries, kiwi fruit, dates, grated apple,gojiberries, flaxseeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and honey.

I have just taken the flaxseed foccacia of the oven (thanks Lola for the tip) and I will have that with DH with a cup of steaming black organic coffee (freshly ground).

A bit of an update here:

Pathlab does the Secretor tests for saliva and blood.  So I completed them both.  For the blood specimen I had to go to the local QML lab and get them to juice me up and then I posted both the saliva and blood speciments back to Path Lab.  That was about two days ago, so I will have another 2 weeks or maybe less to wait for the results.  
Yes Shell, I bet myself to being a noni too, that is the Swami choice I am following now.

I received my supps last week and I am starting to use half the recommended dosages, thinking of increasing as I lose more weight.

Teachers 3 pack, Protein Blend A, Deflect A and Proberry are in my patry now.  3 pack and Deflect, I take daily.  Protein blend depending on the kind of day I have, it is now part of my emergency kit and Proberry is on stand by for when needed if at all.

My DD has arranged for me to have easy access to her gym club, getting me a good promo.  I have started doing the resistance work recommended by Swami increasing my level of activity to 5-6 days a week of good workouts.  I had a screening session done which showed me as being pretty flexible, except for my pectorials and some hidden areas at my upper back.  No surprises here, the result of doing IT work for so many years.  I have been doing pilates twice a week and walking for over two months, but two session of this PT resistance training (doing squats and floor ball work) left me this weekend discovering muscles (in a painful way) that I did not know I had.   But, the experts reckon that is good, it means the muscles are getting a work out!!  
I think I should be pleased, although the scales showed a bit of an up trend from last week.  Gaining muscle mass?

All this personality talking on the forum, I decided to try different test. I am posting my results somewhere else too, but I want to record this in here to keep record of my Swami journey.

Well!!  Surprise!!!  I took the 'similarminds.com' test recommeded by Jeanb and Dgale in some other thread and it gives me the following values:

Actual and preferred as ESFJ

My previous Swami Briggs was ISFJ, by just changing the I to E it changes my diet completely and now makes me a 41% Warrior!!  Before I was a 41% Teacher!!

So, the million dollar question is: I am an Introvert or an Extrovert?  How do you people perceive me?

The curious thing is that in looking at both diet lists, although the Teacher diet list is a lot more diverse than the Warrior one, my food choices since I started in the Teacher journey had been suitable to both.  A couple of cheeses and fruit items, plus honey that I have been eating in the Teacher diet are now either avoids or black dots in the Warrior one. And, even though I have the Teacher supplements something inside me has told me to go easy on them ... Ummmm

I started the GT journey as a Warrior, remember? Had measurements wrong then ...  Is something else going to take me back there?

I still have the Secretor saliva and blood tests results to get.  That may also decide the swaying to one way or another.

In the meantime, I keep doing what I am doing, but I will type those Warrior lists on my handy spreadsheet just in case ...

In answer to your question, I experience you as a wonderful Extravert my dear. You keep sharing and sharing in a really open way, and even make long distance phone calls to colleagues to keep in touch. But I am also sure that the final scientific measurements that you are waiting for will be the main touchstone, and will help you get settled. As I have said to J., you will not be a Teacher or a Warrior, you will be you.

Cristina,

Your results provide insights into how sensitive Swami is to personality type. I just completed the test and I am now discovering that my ISTP has changed to something different in the mean time. As I have been administering these tests for about two decades now, I would suggest that you take more time with them and also do them repeatedly before ascertaining your type. Have your close friend or someone who knows you for very long time (not those who have not met you physically but only via internet) or spouse assess you on the same questionnaire and this will give you better results. A personality test involves a lot of subjectivism and there are chances of errors. Also please note that, our inner prefences are often opposite of what we appear doing. For example, an introvert now and then mixes with people and even becomes the centre of the party but she will only be able to energize herself with quiet moments of reflection after such parties; whereas an extrovert would energize herself by simply involving in the party and would now and then go for alonness, this alonness does not energize her. And so on.

Thanks for your appreciation Jenny and excellent explanations Kumar.  Much appreciated both of you.  I will have to do some soul searching to determine if this open extrovert is hidding a real Introvert.

Having just finished inputting my own info into the SWAMI software (even though I've had the log-in instructions for months -- long story), I'm now semi-confident that my status is correct. A lot of foods that used to be avoids have migrated into the neutral category (yay!). A few neutrals are now avoids (sniff).

That's interesting, because as soon as I read this post, I typed myself into the Swami software and went from a Warrior to a Teacher! I so identify with a Warrior that I'm wondering if my Myers-Briggs results might possibly be off, rather than my Genotype...so very interesting....it's all about our point of reference, isn't it?

This time I took a test that I found using Google http://www.humanmetrics.com, and I tried to be as truthful as possible -- meaning I answered as quickly as possible without thinking -- and I came up with ENFJ, and that put me squarely back in the Warrior camp. Very, very, interesting.

Well, well, I have got the secretor blood tests results and they are:

A Rh(D) Positive  A-B+ M+N+

All that or at least part of it, makes me a Secretor.

(I have been living as a Non Sec for a couple of months ... wrong hunch)!

I have entered these results in SwamiX since I do not think that the saliva tests results I am waiting for will change anything.  My secretor status is confirmed with the Lewis results, very unlikely saliva results will change that.

Now back to the personality types deciding factor:

I have done the personality test from 'similarminds' and I get the ESFJ all the time
Done the one posted here from 'humanmetrics' and I get ENFJ, so I have decided I am an extrovert after all which gives me the same genotype all the time.  It is only when I type as an Introvert that I get Teacher Genotype, and that was when I did the shorter tests.

So, after all that, SwamiX makes me a GT5 - Warrior!!  44% as an ESFJ and 46% as an ENFJ.  So I am going to give the Warrior type a try.  Going back to my first impulsive assessment for a GT, when I measured myself as a Warrior....

PS: if my tendons are not visible, I get 49% warrior!! But I will not go there, I am convinced to try Warrior lifestyle ..

Hi Jenny, and thanks.  I am quite happy with my food lists:

I lost the red meats, but I have not had them at all while in the teacher diet.

No SF in poultry, Turkey, ostrich and Emu are now neutral: have not eaten them at all either.  Bough Turkey the other night but it is in the freezer untouched.

Fish, long list as Teacher, may be changes there but no problems, ok.

Dairy, lost a few cheeses but only one I have been eating a bit lately: Gouda, the rest I tried them here and there not much anyway.  I still have Parmesan, Romano and Peccolino, and lost Feta to the neutrals where is joining newly addition Riccota.  Kefir joined Yogurt and the soft Paneer, Farmers and Quark are new to my SFs.  Quite happy with all this.

Lost wheat all varieties (makes sense with the white lines), so my bulk supplies will have to be converted into wheat grass which I believe is OK for everyone to have?

Gain Amaranth, Barley, my Quinoa which I have had almost every morning for breaky is still a SF and I cannot remember what else changed here.

The live food group removed my Tomato from SF but kindly kept tomatillo in neutral, so if desperate, I can use that with some red beets to give the look of red tomato sauce.  OK here, lots of vegies to choose.

Fruit, I am very happy with too, all my favourites are there.  Lost mango which is going to be hard with my mango trees showing baby shoots of mango at the moment, given a couple of months they should be right size to eat.  Maybe Mango juice maybe OK, have to check that.

On the subject of juice, although grapes are no, grape juice appeared in SFs and coffee of course is there too.

Spices and condiments, well somewhere there is chocolate!! And I thought I lost it.  Carob of course is there too.

Warrior lifestyle, I have not read it yet. Do that after dinner.

I am happy with the options and for the first time in a while I have a sense of relief that I now know a lot more about myself and how to provide nourishment for best health.

Something else I gained in my food lists is Yerba Mate, as a SF.  This is the traditional drink where I come from and grew up drinking it.  I have not tried that for the last 15 years or so.  Where I am in Australia, you cannot get it.  I think I may have to order it from Sydney or Melbourne.  

Jenny, Jumari is that something you can get in Camberra, Sydney, if you know of any good suppliers let me know.

I believe these days you can get them in tea bags, but we used to drink them in these special gourds with a metal (silver) straw.  I suppose we were getting then a double health boost: the goodness of the Yerba tea and the benefits of silver (I think there is info in the net about silver being good).  I still have both the gourd and metal straw.  It will be nice using them again, walking the ancestral path...

And Lola, thanks for the lesson on blood grouping nomenclature, fixed info under shield ...

Wonderful Cristina! My hunch for the last couple of weeks also was tilted towards you being a Warrior, due to the fact that you have carried on so much of weight on your body. My experience shows that Teachers do have lesser problem managing the weight than warriors. So I am sure you must be an extrovert significantly. In personality tests, the dimension (among the four dimensions) that often resists change is the introvert-extrovert dimension. I also sense that this particular dimension is more objectively measured than the other dimensions.

You once mentioned your Swami giving you cow milk as neutral or so? I am still curious on this and want to know whether it is due to some programming bug?

Thanks for your comments regarding my personality traits, tests, Kumar.

The cow milk issue was a bug I was reporting in the Bugs thread.  The 'Meal Planner' program in Swami was picking up foods from the avoid lists.  I noticed today that Dr D posted a reply in the Updates thread, stating that this has now been fixed.  Swami lists were always right, milk has always been an avoid and I knew that.  I remember Dr D then stressing that the foodlists have priority over anything else in Swami, the food lists are the ruling factor.  I hope this answers your question.  Thanks again.

I have recently found Yerba Mate in teabags at my HFS in Griffith, ACT. They also have loose 'mate' tea which the owner says is the same. The teabags are rather expensive, the loose reasonably cheap.

I think that's a good point that you don't think too much about it. It's good to be relaxed and clear minded. When I took the full Myers-Briggs test, I was instructed to skip any question I couldn't answer right away, then go back to them and try again without spending much time. For that test, questions could be skipped altogether if it was difficult to answer them without thinking much.

Try the great Ironwood Cottage in Sandgate.  It's not far off the M1 and you could enjoy a walk around the lagoon near there too and enjoy the quaint shops, not far from the nice foreshore there too.  http://www.startlocal.com.au/retail/healthfood/qld_brisbane/Ironwood_Cottage_1424799.html

They have wholesale flours (1/2 price compared to supermarket!), dried fruits (including preservative free), baked breads, free-range organic hormone-free meats, free-range fruit and veg.  Biggest range of orgran products I've seen.  
Big range of healthy snacks and lots of things I've never seen before.  Helpful staff too, you could give them a call and find out if they've got Yerba Mate.  I bet they have!

There have been a few signs with me lately that are putting me in alert mode.  I think I burnt inside, the top of my mouth, had a small irritation there that made it hard to drink hot drinks or chew food.  Used celtic salt granules (dab inside with my finger) last night before going to bed and today was much better, hardly feel it there.

Something got into the corner of my eye the other day and since I have had this dry skin area, just on the outside corner of the eye.  Rubbed the sap of a cut Aloe Vera leaf and that is much better today.

I was supposed to be at the dentist today to remove my last bit of amalgam, but woke up with a bit of a 'not quite sore but not 100% either' throat and decided not to go.  My DH made me green tea and brought it to bed, I added a bit of Agave syrup to it and enjoy it.

But, did I really?  My gosh, a few minutes after drinking the tea I felt sick, queasy, wanting to get sick but not quite there.  So, I quickly prepared breaky and after eating it I felt much better.

So, I checked what I have been eating the past few days and honey and dried dates figured high in the scheduled.  Honey in breakfast, snacks, tea, coffee.  Munching on dates and walnuts, after 6pm and exercise routine fig fat zero.

This morning as I was having breakfast, i reach for the Mapple syrup to garnish it, instead of usual honey.  SwamiX has placed honey in the Black Dots and Mapple Syrup as SF and my intuition today goes with it.  Not blame honey, but my overindulgance of it!!!
Or was it the fact that I have been eating some avoids according to the new Swami: Blueberries most days for breakfast (now avoids) and Gouda cheese quite a bit for lunch and on dinner dishes.
The other thing I noticed is that the ingredients of the dried dates I have been eating include not only 100% dates, but also vegetable oil!! Who knows what kind: hidden avoid here?
And the wheats SFs before avoids now. I had the occasional pasta, pie and pizza dish, including the odd tomatoes (also avoids now).

Have I stirred the natural levels of candina in the system?  Everything else seems normal, except my weight has this week plateau at 87kg.

In conclusion I will be very watchful of what I eat in the future and strictly stick to the Warrior diet. I do not want this to develop into anything but best health.

Regarding Brewers Yeast:

On reading the ingredients:
quote
Dried yeast with added thiamin (b1) and riboflavin (B2). ....Classed as a nutritional, non-baking yeast.
unquote

So, is it subtitution for Nutritional yeast here?  The brand is Soland (packed in Australia) and bought it at a HFS.  They did not seem to know about nutritional yeast per say.

as I previously mentioned, swami has both ratings
Yeast, Bakers
Yeast, Nutritional

I consider the first to be the equivalent of brewer s.

so to answer your question, no, brewer s is not to be considered nutritional,
it is less sweet than nutritional.

nutritional grows on sweet tubers like beets.
there are many sites explaining the differences.

Hi Christina,

Before going off hunting for Yerba Mate give a couple of Woolworths a ring to see if any are in stock.  I have found packets of 25 teabags made by 'Lotus Peak' packaged in W.A. (www.lotuspeak.com.au) just here in my local supermarket!

Was so excited to see them by accident only to find out that they are only neutral for me.  These were found in the tea section of the supermarket but you may want to check in the health section (store variation).  Lotus Peak also make a gentle white tea which I have had in the past and the Yerba Mate was alongside this tea.  

Good luck

There has been a slight change of plan and my son gets here on Friday instead of tomorrow Wednesday.  Thanks for the tip Shells, I 'll check local woolies for it.

I am pretty happy today.  The scales started moving again and today I weight 86.0, a whole new Kg down!

I had a couple of days last week where I was not feeling too good (those nasty dust storms here could have been responsible), but it did not develop into anything.  The only supplement I used was a couple of Proberries a couple of days and the protein blend when I was not feeling up to even cook breaky or lunch.  What a savior with a few fruit pieces and allowed juices in a smoothie.  Pick me up delicious!!

Also, the change of GT means my Teacher supps, which I just bought, are stuck in the pantry ... Not ordering the warrior stuff yet until a few more days on this path.

I made fresh soy milk (SF) this week and have been using it in my coffee.  I have beautiful Okara from the process, which I am planning to use in some patties today.   Great stuff to increase use of Veg proteins.

1 cup of vegies 5 times a day says my Swami, and I have been trying hard to comply which may explain how those nasty symptoms earlier were kept in check.  Lots of antioxidants and good organic stuff most from my garden to fight them off.

Ah, also, I received an e-mail from a local supplier of american PawPaw plants which he grows in his nursery.  So we (DH and I) are planning to pay the nursery a visit and come home with some plants.  I do have areas of bush undergrowth in my land, as suggested by C_Sharp, so I should be able to find them a suitable snugly spot to grow them.  If not, the Tea Tree forest across the road looks good too ... Joking!, would not dare to introduce exotics there, love that forest too much!

Hey, sounds like your green thumb is great for your tummy.  Paw paw !  Fantastic.  I found info on growing it and will post it on the aussie thread when finished researching.  Clever you making soy milk.  Congrats on the weight loss!

We're so glad the dust has gone away too all had sore throats here and sinus problems.
  
About HFS, I went into a Mrs Flannerys store (gourmet type chain health food store in Brisbane) yesterday and got out as quick as I could.  I couldn't believe how expensive everything was, later went to the Chemist Warehouse and got a Calcium vitamin for $11 that was $20 in Flannery's!   Even the wholesale flours were $2 a kg more than the Ironwood Cottage.  It scared me to see how exclusive and trendy it was in there, health food is a big business.  Saw alot of processed food in fancy packaging and very little actual fruit and veg in there.

I'll be sticking with basic food for a while on our very basic budget, though the Ironwood Cottage will get some visits from me, even though it's a few suburbs away!

BTW about supplements, I saw Jumari on here offering to sell his Warrior supplements at a discounted rate somewhere.  You should PM him!

Thanks GW, and yes, HFS is a big business, that is why I do not take those trips to the HFS that often and make the effort of trying to source things in bulk (ie organic soybeans ) and make or grow things myself.  But it is not always possible ... $$$$.

It is my DD's 25th this weekend, and I am ordering a SWAMIX for her gift.  She had some of my proberries this morning, looks a bit flueish.  I adviced her to stay away from dairy and wheat for a few days at least.  She is an A, so hopefully that is a good advice.

Also, I am not sure how much use of SwamiX she will have to start with, but I showed it to her this morning and she understands it will be good for her to have.  She sees how much progress I am making and healthy looking all the time.  She reckons I have good genes and I have given her good genes too, but, I said, you still got to look after them if you want them to keep on working for you.  She is a very fit young girl, very active, runs RPM classes at the local gym, and body attack too I think.  She could be Teacher or Warrior, got to take her measurements ...

In answer to a relevant PM:

In the not too distant past (maybe 3 months ago now), I had great difficulty to go to sleep.  Now I know that what was really keeping me awake was what I was eating: all the wheat (got white lines, so nononono wheat), sugar foods (ice cream, lots of sugar in tea, cakes, biscuits - could not help it, craving terrible ...), tomatoes galore, chilli, nightshades, not so many vegies, too much wrong fruit (never thought there could be such thing as too much fruit, but too much fructose can be as bad as wheat for the specif person like me) and generally eating wrong for my type.

I had a duodenal ulcer very early in life (there is that gut thing again), and I had periods in my life when, looking back, without knowing about BTD, I was naturally eating right for me.  That helped me enough to keep me in a sort of healthy state, but my weight kept on creeping on and on and on and other symptoms started appearing, that annoying continuous need of getting rid of that mucus down my throat and then just before I joined this forum,  deficiency in B12 and iron were spotted in my blood.  This started to awaken feelings of fear that something was really wrong with me.

So, that is how I came to this forum and this way of life. I have had an amazing response from just eating the right foods (and in a very short time), including yogurt and right cheeses in my diet to fix gut. Those mucus symptoms are now a thing of the past, including the many other 'little' things that kept on creeping up and we take to accept them as part of living, old age, or unlucky genes ..., together with the lack of sleep (as I posted in another thread discussion today), they are all part of my past.  All of this by mostly eating the right food stuff.

I have not started yet to take supplements in a regular basis, because of Genotype tweaking: I was Teacher and now I am Warrior, I do not have the warrior ones yet, but I have ordered them (have to check post office today), and I plan to use them as needed.

I am now a firm believer that if you give your body what it needs in the form of proper food and lifestyle then the body will respond back by giving us that amazing feeling that comes from living in a healthy state, to your full potential.  I may not have reached that 100 % state yet, but hey, I am sure way down the right path. I keep on sharing my experiences and asking question for whatever I do not get, no shame on that, the end prize is worth it.

We're all aiming for that state of health and we're here to help each other along.  I've still got mucus in my throat at the moment and put it down to wheat, since I've added that back into my diet because of the colonoscopy coming up and wanting any problem with wheat to show up.  Can't wait to get that over and done with (been waiting 6 months!)

Did you check with Jumari - he might want to sell some Teacher Supplements he had (I posted that on this thread before somewhere)

Well, I was waiting for Jumari to show up to talk to him, have not seen him around for a while.  But things worked out in a funny way (as I hint the other day), and even without ordering them, the Warrior supps are turning at my address today, due to some missed up in deliveries.  There is a reason for everything, and although they were not meant for me initially by the sender, some higher power brought them to me!!  Of course I am paying for this order I did not order, mind you with a 10% discount for accepting it, but suits my type, obviously, It seems like Swami moves in strange ways and have higher links with the universe ... How could I not accept that!!!

Thanks Lola, I am not sure if available in Australia. Will check with Gina, although, thinking about it, I think they might all be at the Sydney Mind festival.  That is where Jenny and Jumari and others might be now, or be ready to go there soon.  Jenny posted something about it somewhere, and Gina sent me an invite to it, but unfortunately I can not make it.  I need to check those posts and e-mail.

Actually I am at home, but slightly off the air as I am trying to focus on other things rather than a four hour trip each way into the Sydney traffic (ugh). Also not on the board much due to changes in my computer set up, trying to limit internet use. Using all those extra hours to practice the fiddle, wait for my second grandson to arrive, prepare for a birthday party next weekend  and plan a little romantic get away soon. But be sure, I will be checking in to all your wonderful research and progress from time to time.

Well, my Warrior supps arrived yesterday afternoon.  I started taken them in this morning: The Warrior 3 pack and the Multivitamins!

Also, today I started serious excercising in the Gym.  Went for gym fitness scan about 2 weeks ago, but since then could not make it.  There is again that blood type A excuse for not exercising seriously, like getting a good sweaty workout. Thanks DD for getting me such good deal $$$ on it.

I have been feeling fantastic, I seem to be eating heaps of food, the 5 cups a day vegie thing is the driver...  But my weight is still stuck on 86kg.  Weigh myself this morning.  I think that now with the supps and the extra workouts, things will be moving on a bit faster.  

I am not in a hurry, I did not get here overnight (I know I am repeating myself here), but I am feeling healthy, happy, active, alert, generous, assertive, look glowing, feel flexible, in other words the good genes are working well.  The extra activity and nutritional push from the supps, will assist in creating more muscle and pushing the fat load away.

No, I have not ordered the weigh loss pack, it was a toss between the Warrior supps and that, and then the Warrior supps turned up ...

I like to visualize things to keep me on track and lately I have been feeling inspired and spurred on by the following thoughts.

I imagine my lists of beneficial food as being like a giant master puzzle of the optimum healthy representation of my body that Dr D has gelled together for me, with the pieces in the puzzle being each of the food items and lifestyle recommendations that I need to include in my daily life to reach that healthy state myself.  The aim is to reproduce that masterpiece each and everyday of my life, building my own puzzle, by placing food items in my daily menus of the right type, in the right quantity, and in the right location as well as applying each lifestyle recommendation from the masterpiece.  Eating food items that are not on the lists, or in the wrong quantities, or not following any of the lifestyle recommendations for my type,  will be like trying to place a distorted piece into the puzzle, no matter how much you try to make it fit, if it does not belong there it will not work and you end up with a weird, looking picture, which normally will be funny, except that our health is not laughing matter.  So, I talk myself into keeping working on those daily puzzles until they are cemented in my life in such a way that I become the personification of the masterpiece Dr D is showing me today.

1.56, still packing it a bit, got another 20kg to lose, to get me to the first stage of my goal. I always felt better around the 58-62 kg range.  I know some charts according to my height required me to be below 55, but I have been there and I looked terrible, felt awful and vulnerable.  The upper end of 50s is my ideal, but at this stage of my life, I will be thrilled when I get it to the sixties.

Meal planning and cooking within the guidelines is becoming easier and easier.  Today for lunch I cooked a big barramandi fillet, I just had a little portion that could fit in the palm of my hand and hubby and son had the rest.  It was so yummy and tasty.  That with brown rice with lots of onion, garlic, carrot and zuccini.  Yum, Yum.  
I am sipping a cup of Nettle and green tea while typing this.  Thanks for asking. ..

It's not Sole food hey Possum!  he he   Yep, pays to have great fish, sounds yummy Cristina.

I like to bake my fish in Aluminium foil ( I know that could be bad but don't think it leaches into food   and it at least keeps all the fish oils in) with garlic, mozzarella cheese, butter or olive spread or ghee, herbs, and lemon juice.

Great hints GW, I normally would have used foil, but this fish has been frozen for a month, so I was worry it will go all watery (like boiled) on us.  So, I rubbed sea celtic salt and olive oil, put it in a baking tray in a 350 oven and hoped for the best!  Kept a close eye on it, opening oven a few times to make sure it was not drying out too much. I think it took 15 minutes?  I do not know, was not checking the time, just waiting for it to be ready to eat.

I learnt something though, frozen barra does not lose its taste at all, if it does, I am glad I did freeze it, otherwise the taste would have blown me away and I would still be wondering around the house with glazy eyes, and muttering incomprehensive things like ate moya, car ica, tri bola, ... and that would have not only kept me away from this forum, but got me in trouble at home ...

Lola & Cristina, I have been reading this string and your genuine and sincere appreciation of "the Dr D Programs" is quite inspiring. Really makes me feel like I am making good choices with it

Also picked up on the mucus issue you (Cristina)  mentioned in your throat. It has about worn me out. By the end of the day my throat is so sore from clearing my throat. This could be from wheat right? Just gave it up and hoping to see adifference soon




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

Golfzilla   thanks.

Regarding the mucus, I had also picked up that grabbing a few too many dates (which I love) is sure to trigger that throat clearing need.  The dates itself are a bene, but the only dry ones I have access to, come packed with vegetable oils,      sure to be avoids ...  Pity, but, no thanks ...

GW Your fish recipe sounds wonderful too!! Now that one is sole food!!!
Never been too sure on re the aluminium foil issue myself... from all the warnings/conflicting info I've read...Would be an interesting discussion??!!
If you can trust Wiki..."Aluminum is the third most abundant element in the earth's crust after oxygen and silicon, making up about 8% of the surface. It finds its way into the air and water and is taken up by plants from the soil. With that much of the element on earth, if it were toxic to living creatures, there would not be many around.
Acidic or highly salty foods tend to leach more aluminum out than other foods...
There are a few risks associated with aluminum. Excessive amounts in children with kidney disease can affect bone strength. Large amounts - in excess of what is possible to ingest in a normal person's diet - affect fetal brain and skeletal development. Also, people can develop skin sensitivity to aluminum chlorhydrate in deodorants."

Posumm!!  Not like you not to get the pun!  I meant that the fish would have been so delicious if I just cooked it fresh that it would have sent me into a state of bliss and the muttering of words is from all the recent research I have been doing with relevant words still twirling in my mind: atemoya (our custard apple), carica papaya (our papaya), annona tribola (US PawPaw). The trouble at home is that when I start muttering those words they all seem to shake their heads: there she goes again with that forum thing ...   All good fun ...  

With the punning question, it makes me think that I still got to learn a lot from the master punning friend from NZ.

Cristina, ha ha! sounds like some incantations maybe from Harry Potter!  Glad you're enjoying your tucker, this is not like any other deprivation diet thank goodness.  Never felt like I'm on a starvation diet on the BTD/GTD only a get healthier diet!  

You must have defrosted your fish before you cooked it?  I always get frozen fish (that's what budget allows at the moment really).  Heard from fisherman that they are all frozen on the boat straight after catching anyway, so fresh fish in a fish shop is a misnomer.  Our local fish and chip shop catches some themselves though.  If it's frozen too long it can get freezer burn (crystals forming) so I watch out for that.

When I defrost it myself then I can trust that it's safe to eat.  My Mum bought some fish from a supermarket deli once and got food poisoning from it (in Darwin (semi-tropical north of Australia) mind you).  

Golfzilla - know exactly what you mean, it's very annoying, ahem (clear throat).

GW, nope, I did not defrost it, went straight from the freezer to the oven, (after rubbing the oil and salt).  Broke all my conventional traditions with that one.  To start with, I did not think it was going to work.  But my goodness!! It did work, finger licking work!  And to think of it I had the oven quite high to start with (in a hurry to get it on the table to waiting family).  When I said I was keeping an eye on it, I was also doing some intervention.  I took it out once or twice to remove the thinner bits of meat that were cooking (did not want them paper dry and kept the hungry mob waiting with fork and knife happy).  Also, at some stage I cut it in half (across not lengthwise), because of the thick mid drift, too thick, too long to cook, and left the one half in the oven while I pat and toss the other half on a very hot cast iron pan.  We ate the pot one first while the one in the oven was finishing off cooking slowly.  By the time we finished the first half, the second one was ready.  I guess it was a case of play it as you go and the experiment worked.  

Obviously barra must be naturally good to produce something so nice even after this rough treatment and a month old in the freezer.  Bought it at local woolies, where they seem to get good fish lately.

Posumm!!  Not like you not to get the pun! Quite true... I think its to do with me failing to give your findings the attention they deserve - I am (just) surviving all the new things to learn at work at the mo, by taking it in, on a needs to know basis... & my brain has shut down temporarily on things I think I can afford to focus on at a later date.. however it caught up with me when I didn't know whether sole was a good purchase the other evening...
I meant that the fish would have been so delicious if I just cooked it fresh that it would have sent me into a state of bliss and the muttering of words is from all the recent research I have been doing with relevant words still twirling in my mind: atemoya (our custard apple), carica papaya (our papaya), annona tribola (US PawPaw). The trouble at home is that when I start muttering those words they all seem to shake their heads: there she goes again with that forum thing ...   All good fun ... Indeed!!!
With the punning question, it makes me think that I still got to learn a lot from the master punning friend from NZ.  
Not sure about that...I think you're great as you are...

Guessing the ice in the fish melting into water kept it moist while it was cooking and defrosting at the same time.  That may be a whole new way of cooking using the iceblock method.  Great stuff.

I am intrigued/amused Please...is it possible to explain or is it too private

GW Your fish recipe sounds wonderful too!! Now that one is sole food!!!
Never been too sure on re the aluminium foil issue myself... from all the warnings/conflicting info I've read...Would be an interesting discussion??!!
If you can trust Wiki..."Aluminum is the third most abundant element in the earth's crust after oxygen and silicon, making up about 8% of the surface. It finds its way into the air and water and is taken up by plants from the soil. With that much of the element on earth, if it were toxic to living creatures, there would not be many around.
Acidic or highly salty foods tend to leach more aluminum out than other foods... That's a worry since I like putting lemon in my fish! like the way you say we're still here and there's lots of it around!
There are a few risks associated with aluminum. Excessive amounts in children with kidney disease can affect bone strength. Large amounts - in excess of what is possible to ingest in a normal person's diet - affect fetal brain and skeletal development. Also, people can develop skin sensitivity to aluminum chlorhydrate in deodorants."


Thanks for the info small, cute furry animal! I get swollen lymph nodes in the neck from normal deodorant so I go for aluminium free tea tree type now.  We used to have aluminium pots and I've worried about that.  I heard it's linked with alzheimers.  Yicky.
I think there was a thread on it before on here.  Searching and found some people saying canned foods are a source, it causes Autism, it's in some cream of tartar, baking powders, immunisations.
Found this in the Blood Type Diet FAQ at http://www.dadamo.com/faq/smartfaq.cgi?subject=988813483
Quoted Text
"Avoid aluminum cookery (it can contaminate your food with aluminum) and microwaves (they change the molecular structure of foods in unknown ways) for heating foods."


Yep, there's a lot to know and it can get a little overstimulating at times.

Cristina's two month reflections:

September and October (and these few days in November) were the months where there have been moments of celebration (my DD's 25th), moments of a mixture of pain and feeling of relief (dentist amalgam removal), lots of learning and joy and networking in the forum, scary moments (DH bee thing and DGD accident) and life in general.  I am here and determined to reach my goals.

After secretor tests and in depth look at personalities ... I joined the Swami Warriorhood on the 15th Oct dragging a 2 week plateau of 87kg.

Four days on the Warrior lifestyle, still low activity levels though, but I saw the scales moving again down to 86kg where they stayed for the next 20days til today.

Nov 4, the warrior supps arrived, started taking them.  Weight still plateaued at 86.

Five days later which included some supps  and two heavy sessions of gym, transformed the plateau into a 1.5kg loss.  Now on 84.6Kg.

Except when we had the dust storms here that caused me a bit of discomfort for a couple of days, I have been feeling fantastic during this Swami ride: satisfied, rested, alert.

REality checks:
Got to improve my exercise and supps taking routines. Do not make enough time for the heavy sweaty physical activity and keep on forgetting to take the supps (end up doing both, but at different times all the time).

Quoted from Cristina

When choosing secretor status I get a 45% (Good Association) with the GT3 Teacher Genotype.

When I choose non-secretor I get 41% (again good association) with the GT3 Teacher Genotype.


Isn't this exciting? I loved getting GenoTyped!    Refresh my memory, why are you following the Warrior diet?

Hi MF, it has been an evolving thing of finding more about myself with tests results, personality, family history.  I input this data into Swami and let it compute the best for me.  I was a bit surprise to start with, but it goes with my intuition.  I have been very open about what is been happening in this journey.  You will find more explanations in posts 31 and 38 (page 2, or pg1 and 2).  

Actually, I have to check my Swami again, but by now with all these refinements, Swami is making me 51 or 52% warrior.  I am adaptable and these are just labels, but the food lists are working great for me at the moment.
Checked it and it is 52% strong association.  Have a look at these values (moderators, hope it is OK to post this here).

Calculator Points:

    * Torso to Leg Ratio /Characteristic of Warrior.
          o Your lower leg is longer than your upper leg.
    * Your ABO blood type (A) is characteristic of Warrior.
    * Rh positive blood type is often observed in Warrior GenoType.
    * Secretor status is often observed in Warrior GenoType.

Strength Testing, First Pass

    * Caffeine insensitive /Characteristic of Warrior.
    * Gynic upper leg space in women /Characteristic of Warrior.
    * Mesomorphic or meso-endomorphic somatotype /Characteristic of Warrior.

Strength Testing, Second Pass

    * Characteristic MN subgroup (MN) /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.
    * MBI TF(T) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.
    * Parameter suggestive of GenoType (High Risk WHR) /Characteristic of Warrior.

PS: the 51% happens when I change MBI JP(J) where is where I sit most ( think, although these TJPNFS markers go past my attention ... )  Swami uses them, so I put them there.  Either way makes me a warior.  The biggy one for me was the EI, that could change labels (Teacher/Warrior), but most now see me as extrovert.  Maybe I was always extrovert that deteriorating lifestyles (from BTD point of view), made introvert, but the gene resetting process has made me revert back to extrovert.

Oooh. I must have missed that.    I knew there must have been something I missed. So are you tall?  I'm 5'7"...Andrea is about 5'4" I think. Warriors are supposed to be tall. I don't know what happened to Andrea though with her height..lol.  I guess it doesn't apply to all Warriors.

I am 1.56m  (we are metric).  So, not all Warriors are tall, I supposed.  You are implying Andrea is also not Warrior tall?  Well, we come in all shapes and sizes, and besides, we are Swami warriors, each with our own uniqueness.  The height could be very valuable from a GTD point of view if you were fine tuning there, although in its own, it is not considered, but as a ratio against legs, torso, you know, why Iam I telling you this when you know it better than me?  Stop me!!  I guess, nice refresher for the newies.

No worries, GW, we can pack a good punch to anything trying to interfere with our gene resetting, but, like Jenny's avatar depicts, we are otherwise all peace loving warriors.

Whoa. That's not tall. I need to ask Dr. D about that.  He never mentioned how important height is to GenoTyping a Warrior.  He told me the give away other than my blood is the long head..see our long heads? Also check Andrea's picture..in the album...Christina, you don't look like a long headed person but the shot isn't a straight on pose. Do you have one that's not straight on for my studies?
Thanks! I also just remembered that Sharon doesn't have a long head either but she's an AB. Fascinating stuff..

Yes, it is not easy to try to outguess Swami ...  Lots of little variables and things playing in there ... just when we thought we had figured it out!!  

OK, you got me there, it is a moments like this when I realize that I have not been here that long and I still got places to uncover and a lot more study to do in this 'roadmap'.  Where is that album you are talking about?

Well, I thought I mention this, my visitor from Vegas is O negative and we did the measurements today and it all came down to the secretor status: secretor she is a gatherer, non secretor, she is a explorer.

BTW I am not starting this on a different thread, so she can start her own herself if ever ready.

Anyhow, we then went through the traits in the book and almost no points for gatherer, but heaps of traits on the explorer.  On checking the explorers food lists, she identified with a lot of the avoids there as being things she knows cannot tolerate: almonds, oranges, coconut oil, coffee. Now that is a biggie, my son loves coffee and this morning they had some at a cafe and as soon as she drank her coffee she started trembling, like shaking ...  That was very early in the morning,  they were having breaky at the beach.  Mid morning we were doing the genotyping and when she saw the coffee in the avoids, it all made sense to her.  I think I may have pick up a convert in here, and she may be a nonnie . ...

Oh. Sorry. I thought you knew. It's in Little Fishes, and at the top in the Stickies.  All or most of the members have pictures in there.

Also check in the same Little Fishes forum, "Some Shots from the IFHI Conference" (another sticky) I took the first group of shots and I have Andrea in them. You'll find her easier  in there.

I suppose anyone can just go and post photos there, so I will try later tonight.  I have a couple of urgent things to finish first.

Returning to the subject of Warrior Swami lifestyle, I just want to record my experience with the 3 pack supps and multivitamins caps.

Soon after I got them I started the recommended dosage for the trio, 1 x morning for each (including multi) and one evening.  My spacing was a bit skewed there a couple of days, maybe that had something to do with it, that or some hidden avoid I consumed somehow (I am very compliant though!! sneaky things)!.  The thing is that I started to feel not so good, queezy.  That was on the second day of having them I think, not funny to feel like that.  

I always drink a lot of water, but I sort of got this feeling that I should increase my water intake to help wash away this queazy feeling. I started drinking lots of water, I think I drank my whole water bottle in one go!!  Like I was into a water extermination mission.   Maybe I was a bit dehydrated, we had a few humid (no much rain though) hot windy days here!   Anyway, it did go away after that.  So, just in case it was the supps, (my body not used to having pills), I decided to walk steady with them and introduce them slowly to my diet.  So I am on 1 cap, once a day for the tri-pack every other day with the multis the off day (also only once a day).  Seems to be working OK, no quezy feelings again.

I keep this for a week, until I get to recommened doses.  Work with my body, seems to be working.  

I have been studying my swami report in more detail and I am feeling happier and happier that Warrior is what I am.  Seems to describe me pretty well.  Also, personality wise, INFP is where I am at the moment, it describes pretty well what I have been doing here (forum wise).

Posum, i think MF's comment was before I posted this more head on picture.  So, I think I am long faced, or oval, not squared, except when I carry over 30kg.  Remember too, even in this shot I am still over 20kgs over what experts think right for my height.     Less according to my goals

I think you mean ENFP, right? Weren't you saying that the E puts you in the warrior category? Yes, your activity on the board appears extroverted. I think the key, though, is whether you feel energized by people or drained--something that would be most apparent in how you deal with people in person, or really how you feel after being with people in person. I know an extrovert who loves having parties/gatherings. That is not me at all. I am an INFP. Having so many parties would create stress and anxiety for me. I do need social interaction though! I really need days where my husband goes off and does something with his own friends and I have time to myself.

Yes, I have to agree your head looks long/oval in the new picture.

Do you feel different on the Warrior diet versus the Teacher one? The change could be psychological rather than physical, even. I think both Chloe and I felt really "down" and anxious on the wrong diet (2 different ones) before finding the right diet.

Chandon,

Extrovert/Introvert:
Introvert in association with the other two changes I registered here is acceptable by Swami Warriorhood.  You see, It may be related to gene resetting, but, maybe I am not that Thinking and Judging as I thought.  In the quiet of night, when on my own and working here, I feel touched, sensitive, rerceptive of other peoples needs and want to be truthful, want justice, but with tact, harmony, and when I move in those fields, I get energized, like I am doing the right thing, feel at peace with myself.  That is when I become inspired and analogies and representations of situations flow from my mind to my fingertips.  
While studying my Swami report, clicked on the help tab in the personalities section and took the test on the link there.  INFP was the result.  Then I thought, oh not, this is going to make me a teacher, here we go again   But, Swami, still make me warrior, I think the % went down a bit to 49 or 50, but still warrior.  Lists did not change, so it is a cosmetic change, more about finding who you are.

I also know that parties do not energize me.  If I go to one (I do not look for them), I can dance, socialize like the best of them, but then, I would only be at that party because I am happy with the people there.  I do not go making parties, organizing gatherings as such, unless they are family ones for special occasions.  But my door is open to anyone, and there is always room at my dinner table for the unexpected but always welcomed visitor.  The only time that visitor will not be welcomed is if it would try to enter my home with the wrong energy.  I think that my real warriorhood will kick into action and the shield, full of tact and resolution will come up to push the intruder away!!

Warrior vs Teacher diet:
Maybe it is not fair to compare them as such because when on the teacher diet, i did not explore the full possibilities of it.  I think I mentioned here before that while eating as a Teacher I was actually eating mostly as a warrior, did not even get to have the supps.  My life is full of situations like that, it is like my body knows, or something is guiding my actions to what I should or should not do. Like being on off vegetarian lifestyles for as long as I remember, or going in and out strong sporting activities vs periods of meditation emphasis in the lifestyle. There is that feeling, perception, intuition thing coming out, ruling my life.  Now I know, there were my A type genes screaming for vegetarian nourishment and meditation actions to keep the stress hormones in check.  

Yet, I chose a computer career, started as programer (where my creativity  had a chance to thrive) but then took a turn for the worse (for my type) into a kind of inflexible project driven environment.  That is where I spent trapped my last 20 odd years and I think that is when my weight move up and up and up.  There was not much room for creativity or relaxation, bit by bit in a sure way my energy was being drained.  But, hey, there is a silver lining to everything.  Being there, living that is what helped us pay for what we have today in the physical world, did not planned it that way, but it happened.  I am now retiring, long leave without pay at the moment, officially say goodbye in March 10, but I am here for the first time in many, many years, enjoying and thriving in what I live and the vision ahead is bright and clear and I am so releived, and feel spiritually light as a feather on this.  It is so in synch with who I am, from the intra, ultra deep down molecular level to the expressive self of real me!  

BTW: thanks for asking ...

It's great to see you chillin' out gradually, I've seen your T side alot early on more recently your F side is making a come back in what you write on here.  Maybe so many years of programming made your T side more dominant?  I reckon you're extroverted too.  Keep enjoying and having fun!

Neat, I guess I forgot you had had J in your type. I'm an INFP too! I think Chloe is as well. I checked whether J would make me a warrior and it didn't. My sister has wondered if I'm a J, but I don't feel like one at all. I know without a doubt that I'm an I, so I didn't check what would happen if put E.

Sometimes we have to go through passages in our lives that lead somewhere better. I know what that is like! I enjoy getting some creative outlet through my job too, although with this one I also have to deal with drudgery. My husband is in the computer field and is a creative person. I think he gets SOME satisfaction through it, as it is web-based, but needs to find other avenues for his creativity too. (Just as I do.)

It sounds like you and SWAMI have found the right diet and it is a good place to be.

I know what you mean about the programmer/creative remark.

I trained and worked as a programmer before and during university.  After my degree I found that programming difficult to get into and hard to keep going.  When I was producing uncreative programming all day long I would compensate by drinking to excess.  Only now do I know that short-changing my need to be creative leads to destructive behaviours.

Learning is a must, but teaching requires me to have lots of alone time - or I will burn-out quickly.  Although management is not what you prefer, I see that side to you still prevalent sometimes.

Yes, Chandon, I'm an INFP too..We are very similar in lots of ways.  The thought of having a party would cause me stress (although I could manage to do it) I would just
make lots of lists and be relieved the day the party was over....however if I went to someone else's party, I'd probably find a quiet space and prefer to talk to one
person at a time. I can only do one thing at a time...If many people are talking at the
same time or if there is loud music in the background, I feel like retreating to somewhere quiet because I perceive lots of people and noise as chaotic..I used to be able to go to rock concerts...and be right in the middle of blasting noise...but I realize that level of energy goes beyond my scope of tolerance now...  I am not completely introverted.  I mean I do like to be with people, be helpful, but rather on my own terms and in fairly quiet environments.....and although it's just me and my DH in the house since kids are grown and married, it's often a great feeling if he's got something to do and lets me have the entire house to myself for a few hours..I love when things around
me feel calm.  But I'm an artist and artists love daydreaming.  This is why thinking I
was a Warrior seemed so wrong...Their world moves a lot faster than mine

Thanks guys for your insight.  When on my own, I feel best with background soft music (usually the SPA type radio music channel) or just the music of nature through the open windows in the right day (when not too hot outside and birds are at their singing best.  It is amazing how we do change as time progresses.  Maybe when younger our adaptability and need to 'fit in' society and peer groups or work environment to financially survive in a materialistic world,  hides our real personality needs which are now surfacing.  This is the time when some of us can really make the choices, without pressure  We could be partying all day, going to discos or blast our homes with loud noises, but some of us opt to have a quieter life and thrive in what the calmer, simpler things of nature or society (like music) have to offer.  I guess that is what makes me an introvert.

Yes, we do sound a lot alike! I'm not at all drawn to planning parties--but occasionally I will do it and put a lot of effort into it. Then I find there hasn't been enough time to just "be" at the party rather than managing it. That's if we invite a lot of people (a lot to us, but not a lot to others, I suppose). I prefer small groups, for sure.

For the last couple of years my job didn't require all that much interaction with people, which in a way suited me, but made it so I couldn't picture being in a position that was more involved with people. Now I'm in such a position and I'm finding it isn't really stressful because there is plenty of time I spend working alone as well. It's probably a good balance for me. There have been times when I have worked at home. I find I do prefer going to an office, so that I do get some social interaction and a routine.

Goodness me!  It has been about a month since I posted here.  Today I went to the doc had my blood pressure checked and it is perfect!!  I wish i could say the same about DH!!  That is another story as usual ...

The good thing is that the doctor I went to is very agreeable in ordering those blood tests necessary for our typing identification!!  So I ordered the only test I have not done so far: the Serotyping for A1 A2.  Since DH was also there checking his vitals, he also ordered all his blood grouping tests including Lewis, MN, A1A2.  We are both having our cholesterol and sugar checked and Liver enzymes which 3 months ago were a bit high on me (the previous Dr did not think much about it, but this Doc spotted it and even before i asked for it, was ordering a re-check).  It has been 3 months since the last blood test.  Time certainly flys when you are having   fun.     It will be interesting to see my progress in this journey shown in these blood tests!!  It is a fasting test, so, no drink or eat at all before it!!  Gosh!!  I will miss my early morning lemon water!!  I think I will try to go to bed late tonight and try to stay as late as possible in bed in the morning to be ready for the 8:00am appointment!!  Will be hard when you are used to get up at 4:30 5:00am and walk for an hour before the start of the day!!

The good thing about today as well is the fact that I was able to confirm that in Australia QML labs can do the ABO, RH, MN, and serotyping grouping tests as well as the Lewis tests (for secretor status)!!  I am sure Symbi will be elated about this, and so all the other Aussies seeking to do these tests.  Eventually, moderators can update the link where they keep this sort of info as reference, but wait until tomorrow morning after I come back from doing the test, just to make sure!!  What do they say: the proof is in the pudding? ...

We had a late lunch today which was some sort of Pat Tai resemblance with rice noodles, leeks, soy tempeth, carrots, baby red bellpepper (capsicum), parsley, beets, onion, tamari sauce and garlic.  Serve with a handful of fresh Alfalfa sprouts and a spoonful of basil pesto!!!  Yummy

I also had my Warrior trio, plus Deflect A,and Multivitamins, all blood type compliant.  I do not have them often, try to have them once a day, but sometimes I forget!!!  My weight plateau again! But I feel satisfied and great! Clothes fit better and my wardrobe is expanding in choices with the inclusion of those smaller sizes stuck at the bottom of the wardrobe as too small!!  Maybe I should up my supps to the recommended dosage to give my system a boost and trigger the fat burning machine back on!!  

Anyway, I am not complaining!!  it took me nearly 30 years to make me what I am today, so a few weeks here or there is nothing!!  This is a life journey and i am just on my 4th month of it ...

Hi Cristina,

Well done!
That's great that you found that out thanks!  Glad you're getting DH checked out too.  I've been researching blood tests at QML too.  Went into QML for a full blood count and asked the busy nurses, we looked in their book of tests.  Found:
lewis phenotype
ABO bloodgroup (doesn't mention subgroups of A)
Bloodgroup Rhesus factor
ABO bloodgroup Genotype (I guess AO etc)

Also there was a test for MN in the blood, but it was for Manganese, I wonder if you're going to get that result?  Could be interesting though!

I actually rang up the bloodbank division where they do these tests today, asking about M and N factor.  She said that they don't test those at all.  They do lewis and she didn't understand why I'd want to know and said I'd probably have to pay for it (I don't mind I said).  I asked about the subgroups of A (A1 and A2) she said they don't routinely test those unless results require it and it's not required for transfusions.  Got a bit prickly I think with me for asking all these questions.

So I hope you get the results that you want!  Can you tell us what your doctor actually put on the request form, the codes, like FBE for full blood count???  I want to make sure I know these before asking the doctor as they want you in and out of there in 10 minutes or less! (after waiting for a long time   - normally half asleep )

Your other blood test should be great, with all the good things you've been doing I bet you see improvement! Let us know  

P.S. you know QML labs are only in Queensland so the rest of Australia may have to brave Pathlab

Thanks Symbi, well NorthRyde in Sydney have their own lab, forgot the name now, but it is posted elsewhere here.  And I am sure the other states they will have their QML/Pathlab equivalents.  I will wait for tomorrow to see how the blood taking nurses at QML react when they see the doc's request before claiming full victory!  Interesting ...

Regarding what the doctor wrote on the form:

for my husband:
Blood grouping incl Lewis, M-N subtypes, A1-A2 subtypes.

for me:
Blood grouping A1-A2 subtypes.

I think that should do the job.   Will report back in a couple of hours when we come back.

Miss my walk and lemon water this morning.  Got out of bed at 5:30am, could not stay any longer.  Old habits die hard,eh!!  Do not want to sweat too much because the lab does not open until 8:00am!

We are back and here is my report of the proceedings this morning.
We were the first ones there!!  Thanks goodness because by the time they opened it was a long queue waiting!  Anyhow, they took our form and a few minutes later I heard the nurse phoning who I am presuming was someone in head office saying:  'I have two people here with a request for a lewis, MN subtypes and A1A2 subtypes, are these blood grouping tests? The answer must have been in the affirmative because then she proceed to say: 'i thought so.  Will one pint be enough then?' At this point my husband look at me with that 'I hope is worth it the extra draining from me!!'.  I am not sure what the other side replied to the nurse here, but she ended up taking two pints from us, but maybe one was already for the cholesterol, sugar and liver enzymes tests we are also having done.  She was curious (the nurse) about why we are doing these tests, so I told her 'for an improve way of life to eat according to your unique blood and gene grouping'  She then told me she was B negative, that she had tried the B diet some years ago, but either did not do well or gave it up.  Of course, I put her up to date with the latest GTD developments.  She said she understood all that because she had worked in Brisbane in the organ transplant unit for many years and that we were lucky to have her there today, the others would have had a clue about the posibility of these tests, but she knew what they were, the only thing she was not sure for was how much blood to take for them.

Anyway, all this blah, blah, is to demonstrate that in Australia we can easily get this done, we just need to come across the right nurses, technos, dr for it to happen, but the more we keep on requesting, the more of them (personell) will become familiar with the terminology!  Good luck guys.

Regarding results timings, the cholesterol and blood sugar will be ready this Tuesday, but i have the feeling that the serotyping and Lewis, may take at least 5 days.  I am wrong?  I know the doctor wanted to see my husband on tuesday for his results.

Whoa you must be hungry!  Hope you take it easy and get that blood sugar back to normal quickly.  It may take a few days to normalise, hope you don't get a blood sugar headache, probably the day after.

Wow!  You were lucky to get a nice nurse, you lucky thing!  They made me sign the form saying I know I may be charged for the test, as Medicare are changing the rules so much about what they cover at the moment.  Did they make you do that?

The reason I asked what is written exactly is my Dr has a computer system that has codes for all the QML tests in it.  I may have to ask her to write some extra info on there.  If anyone can understand Dr's writing!   he he

I hope that was two vial or test tubes of blood and not full pints.

A blood donation is ordinarily one pint. Two pints is signifigant amount of blood loss. Total amount blood in body varies but it is around 10 pints.

Blood test do not ordinarily require anywhere near a pint.

If you did loose two pints of blood, be sure to consume lots of fluid and try to work on eating things that will help rebuild the blood in your body.

Here is a link to the blood building protocols.

Symbi, our posts must have crossed!  How did my body react to this fasting?

Wonderfully!!! With all the episode of the dark vision thing, we ended up having a very late lunch, which I considered, early dinner, at about 3:00pm!!  So I made sure we had a substantial healthy superbene one and of course pump myself with my Warrior, blood type supps.  Then at about 6:00pm I had yogurt with some fresh grapes, dry prunes, nutritional yeast and lecithin granules, with a bit of mapple syrup on top.  That was all for me and i fell very satisfied.  DH on the other hand finished the leftovers from the lunch time meal.  I went to bed at about 9:00, 9:30pm and I made sure the last thing I had was a full bottle of water (thinking I will not eat or drink anything else until 8:30 or 9am next morning!

I slept very well, and got up at about 5ish this morning (all my plans of sleeping in did not work!).  I felt fantastic!  DH on the other hand was not feeling too good, he was a bit light headed, so I say all his symptoms are starting to sound like he has sugar problems!!  Which does not surprise me the way he eats, craving all the time, can drink a two litre milk in a couple of days on its own if I let him.  Candida may be playing as well, because according to what he eats, he should be double the weight  he is now, but he is quite trim except for his abdominals sticking too much out (little grand daughter has asked him about his big belly!!

My doctor wrote those things quite clearly on the form, even i could read them! I do not think he find them or look for the codes in his computer.  They did not tell me anything about medicare no paying for these tests and did not make me sign anything in the forms, but they do have signs all over at the clinic where they say if Medicare does not pay for any tests, they will send you an account direct to you, so they cover themselves, maybe it is written in their form somewhere.

I think I answered the nurses reaction question on the previous post.  Ask away if you want more info.  Cheers.

I hope that was two vial or test tubes of blood and not full pints.



Thanks CS, i thought I heard her say pint, but she was talking from behind the counter and I was sitting at the reception, just quietly paying attention (ie: earsdropping...)    What she actually took was two little tubes, whatever they call them (since I am quoting I cannot see what you called them, sorry), so that will be OK.  Even for that, do you think we should follow the blood building protocol?

Here is a link to the blood building protocols.

http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/8.html




I do not know where to report this, but the link to all the Phytocal supps in the Blood building protocols above do not work.  They must have been replaced with an updated version of the product but forgot to update these links.  Here is the correct link for the Blood type A Pytocal:

http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=BT008A

Maybe moderators can do the link updates?

For a regular blood test, I would not bother with worrying about replenshing the blood.
You probably lost less than 25 ml of blood and your body will easily regenerate that amount of blood.

Small tubes for a blood sample might hold about 2 ml.
Normal size I think is around 6 ml.
Large tubes are around 10 ml.




A pint is about half a liter. 473 milliliters if we want to be more accurate.

2 pints would be close to a liter of blood.

Collection of a pint of blood usually goes into a plastic bag and not a tube.

Funny, us posting at the same time  .  Thanks for all the info,  those tests could go under many names and I wanted to be sure.  You'll let us know your results and the fees they charge of course?!  

Your hubby is lucky to get all those tests and have you helping him with his health!  Hope he gets his blood sugar stable, maybe low GI would help?
It should be like $22 - $41 each for the blood typing, I guess from reading the medicare benefits pathology that shows the costs.  Pretty good!

They took 2 vials from me a couple of days ago too (for Full blood count, ESR and TSH) and it affects me badly (an Explorer thing as we're always fighting anaemia) had a huge afternoon nap and got a bruised and sore arm.  Worth it though, really want to know if my Calcium and sodium and acidic blood is better now.

It might be good to update this thread for other aussies looking for secretor tests: Stickied under the Meeting Tree "Australian Secretor Testing" http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-budboard/m-1128116643/  You're a very good communicator, Cristina, hint hint

now, where is that thread that talks about cholesterol tests done that report differently from what we do in australia? or from what QML in Australia does?  Something about LDL-C, or cholesterol C.  It was something making reference to a cholesterol test that took into acount the number of cholesterols passing through the cells, rather than just the total count.  I tried to explain that to my doctor, but he did not hear from it before and he can only rely on what the labs they use report on.  I did a search here, but could not find that thread!  i think it was a few weeks ago, a lady posted it ... Anyone remember that?

Nice job Cristina on the secretor testing for Australia thread, I noticed you didn't bag Pathlabs that's nice of you!  Sorry I don't know the cholesterol post.  When I'm trying to find things sometimes I do a search and choose:

"search messages" 0 "days and" older

So you get all messages ever!  Still I can't find things that Lola can find, she must have a photographic memory!

threads not active are deleted, reason why you will not find them doing a forum search at times.

relevant threads may at times be bumped, before being deleted, if no one answers to them

the general search in the main website page will bring up all past sticky or not yet deleted threads, and also old archived threads from the past boards

certain things I post, without links to those threads, are my personal notes saved before deletion or from the general archives!

Thanks heaps for explaining Lola, but what is bumped?  Is that keeping a thread active?  Don't they archive any recent threads any more?

Also, forgot to say Cristina, I find it handy to search the forum for my own threads, cos I have CRAFT disease and often can't remember the name of a thread that I posted something on (and often go off topic   ) like now.

Several reasons:

Not all forums on this site are indexed by Google.

Google only crawls sites periodically. So something may be posted on a site for a while before Google includes it.

Google can also choose to exclude content. Some of the reasons google might choose to exclude content are: complaints, it decides it might contain malicious software, or it decides you are running a link farm or otherwise attempting to cheat on its page ranking scheme.

Use my Okara to make a lentil and soy loaf for lunch/dinner:

2 cups Okara
2 cups soy milk (home made)
2 cups oat bran
1/4 tempeth block chopped with some parsley, turmeric tube, french onion (shallots), 1 clove garlic, basil, about 2 or 3 leaves of swiss chard, some tamari sauce and salt to taste.

Mix everything together, put in loaf pan in moderate oven for about 40minutes. Served with home made pesto (basil, olive oil, walnut oil, pinenuts, parmesan).  DH, DS and I had lunch on this and still have about half left over for dinner.  Great, I do not have to cook much tonight.

We had lunch at about noon plus 30minutes.  We are planing to go for a walk later this afternoon 4:00pm and then have dinner, but now I am thinking, if it will be better to have dinner at about 4:00pm and go for a  walk at about 4:30pm.  We need to be home by 6:00pm to secure the chickens and fish for the night! or they may end up as pythons snacks!!

BTW, we already went for a walk this morning, but we are working towards increasing the activity to two brisk walks a day, since the gym thingy does not seem to work often enough (due to not getting there often enough and I am paying weekly fees for it!!!!!!!)  We have been reading the Cardiovascular and Diabetics 'Fight It' series books and physical activity is very important!!  DH with high bp and maybe cholesterol  and all.  My cooking takes those protocols into account, although Parmesan SF for us, is an avoid for those protocols.  Once we get the definite test results this week, I'll removed it from the menu if necessary, in the meantime, yummy Parmesan is bene.

put netting and cover over the tank to stop predator getting in at night.  During the day we lift some of these for a bit of lighting and more breeze.  This is a 2500 litre tank with about 130-150 Silver Perch.  ...

4:00pm too early to have dinner, so we went for a walk and we are back now ready for our dinner.  Feel so good!!  The shopping experience at the end of the walk with DH was so much enjoyable this time.  He was very pro what to eat or not to eat.  Lovely!!!

OK, time to report:

My results:
I am A2+
quoted from the report:
Quoted Text
ABO Blood Group Syssytem: A - A2. Possible genotypes are: A2-A2, A2-O


Cholesterol:
My cholesterol increased .6 in the last 3 months, but that is still well within the lower end of the normal range values.  
My Tri increased by .2 but still well within the lower end of the normal range values.
Because of these good results, the lab did not perform LDL, HDL tests. They considered these variations normal fluctuations for the body.
Liver enzymes:
wow! I had elevated liver enzymes 3 months ago and by just following the GTD Warrior, Swami Teacher and Warrior diets, they came down to well within the lower end of the normal range!!  All liver enzymes!!
Urea
value increased slightly but well below the half way mark of normal range.
Urate
was elevated last test, came down to within .1 of normal range!
Glucose
Was normal last test, went further down this test, still within normal range!!
Calcium
Normal last time, increased a bit this time but still well within normal range.
Alb and Glob
Alb down by 2 and Glob up by 2, both well within normal range.
Sodium, Potass, Chloride, bicarb all remained almost unchanged within normal range.

Got my doctor asking me if I was seeing a Naturopath of some sort and I said to him that no, I just get guided by Dr D's work in this forum and his published literature. I had with me the Diabetics and Cardiovascular Fight It books there to show him.  I think he was impressed with my results!!  Not bad for an overweight (on its way to skinny kingdom  of course!! ) senior lady!!

Thank you, thank you Dr D and this forum for crossing my path and showing me the way to look after my body, by just eating right!!  

And to next post for DH's results ...

I want to finish reporting here before I update my Swami.

DH results:

ABO: A rh (D) Positive
Phenotype: A2+ it is A1+ !!!!
Lewis: Lea+, Leb-
MN: M+, N-

So, am I correct in interpreting these results as:
A1 plus, non secretor, M. Please confirm.

Glucose:
Was slightly over normal last test, came down to the very top of the normal range.  So, still not out of the woods, but good news is that it is on its way down!
Cholesterol:
increased by .4 to above 6, elevated for high risk patients, but just inside the normal range otherwise.
Trig increased slightly but within normal range.
Now the bad news come in the further analysis of his cholesterol:
HDL decreased to below normal. It was just within the range last time.
LDL increased to well above normal.  It was already high last time.
Total/HDL ratio increased which is not good.
Anyway, although these results are not ideal, they are not that bad to require lipid lowering therapy, so that is good news.  We can improve these values with the diet, once we establish what he is (Swamiwise).

He did not get a report on all the other clinicals (liver enzymes, sodium, urate, etc, etc), like me, because unlike me, his previous tests were within the normal range and did not warrant re-checking them so soon.

Got to understand that our Medicare system pays for all these tests, we did not have to pay anything, not even the visit to the doctor!! I would let you know if we get hit by any bills, but our understanding is that our health care system pays.  When I asked our doctor, why DH did not get a report on all the other things, he said that for the same reason an LDL/HDL check was not done for me: Medicare will not pay for tests deemed non essential or that they have not been particularly requested by docs.  Docs try not to request too many of 'not necessary' tests, so I guess, we are blessed that our doc was agreeable to request the Lewis, MN and A subtype tests!!!  Like they say, will it strong enough, with conviction, picture it happening and it will!!!

Well, now it is time to start working on DH's Swami so he can also soon start ripening the benefits to his health by eating right!!!

BTW, I updated my Swami with the A2 subtype and no glaring change, in fact, no changes at all!  I compared the shopping lists with my printed ones!  I already have my Swami foodlists tweaked for my type!     Too late and tired to do DH things last night, will have to somehow find the time today.  Hopefully I can get it finalized before the Christmas family gettogether tomorrow!!

Thanks CS, I meant if DH is 'homozygeous' of M, what do we call us the M and N positives?

Swami did bring my Warrior percentage down though, obviously it considers being an A2 not a warrior like attribute!

Congratulations Cristina on your fixed liver enzymes and great blood restuls (jealous  ) and for pioneering the QML blood testing.  They really do it all, yeh!!!

Interesting that your hubby is a nonnie and an MM, did you suspect that?  Has he had lots of health problems?  Now wheat probably already gone?

Good how you're both A2!  That may make it easier for cooking.  From what I've heard, A2 are supposed to be able to tolerate more meat, so wonder if your values and frequencies for those went up in SWAMI?  

Your son may be a nonnie too!  There was a good thread on secretor genetics I can't find it now sorry!  

You may still get a bill from QML for some of the tests in a few weeks time (that happened to me for an advanced test once)  Won't be much anyway

BTW, I updated my Swami with the A2 subtype and no glaring change, in fact, no changes at all!  I compared the shopping lists with my printed ones!  I already have my Swami foodlists tweaked for my type!  

Nope Symbi, as posted then, my meat stayed avoid!!  ostrich, turkey and emu neutrals, that is all the meat I am allowed.  Maybe the A2 meat eating thing is more a explorer or Teacher thing?    It certainly did not affect my warrior swami list!

All the birds that run really fast you're allowed to eat neutrally, maybe that's a built in exercise plan  

Interesting, probably your measurements, medical history and other results overturn the A2 result.  You have filled in every item in SWAMI now, well done!

It you are  M+ N- that would indicate you are MM and homozygous for M.
It you are  M+ N+ that would indicate you are MN and are hetrozygous.
It you are  M- N+ that would indicate you are NN and homozygous for N.



If people have questions on MN alleles and inheritance - here is a Charlie Chaplin quiz system explaining possible M and N allele combinations in reference to a paternity case.

Welcome wwwb, it just evolved in what it is, no plan ...   Hope you find some useful info in it too!  Pop in any time ...

I have changed values for DH, rushed through the paperwork last night and got A2 / A1 values  mixed up.    Still trying to work out with Lola the possible genotypes reported for him in the blood report:

A1-A1, A1-A2, A1-O.

Will it warrant to call the lab to confirm the values?  Trying to do a search on the net to find more info on it ...  Maybe this is one for Dr D to clarify as well?

Husband is A1 with those possible genotypes.

A1 is dominant.

So the phenotype will be A1 regardless of whether the genotype is A1-A1, A1-A2, or A1-O.

Quoted from Cristina

Maybe the A2 meat eating thing is more a explorer or Teacher thing?    It certainly did not affect my warrior swami list!  


Quoted from Symbi

Interesting, probably your measurements, medical history and other results overturn the A2 result.  


Or maybe the meat eating thing is a 'nonnie' thing.  My husband, being an A1, was made a  Warrior by Swami but he is allowed to eat lamb and mutton once a week and ostrich, emu and turkey twice a week.  He then has the longest list of fish diamonds I have ever seen! His fish neutrals counts leave spare fingers in one hand and his avoids and black dots does not use too many fingers on the second hand!!!  He has his favourites tomatoes and pimentos together with Spelt and Kamut wheat as  neutrals ... i can see a pizza coming his way, but just with the soft cheeses: ricotta, paneer, quark, cottage and feta!  i will have to experiment with this ... We still have many things in common, like coffee and chocolate!!! Lucky us!  

I cheated a bit to obtain the Swami report though, because i could not take his fingerprints, did not have the ink pad, so i used the 'composite' choice for all his fingers.  Need to update this with real imprints when i get them.  Lola suggested to use a magnifier glass on his fingers ,  that may work ...

Look at them in bright light with the magnifying glass.  I'm very nearsighted so I could see them easily in the sun even without the magnifying glass.

Done! I used the magnifying glass (thanks Lola and all for the ideas).  He has arches, loops and a couple of whorls and Swami made him a 54% Swami thrifty type of warrior.  He has a very nice diet, all his favorites are there!!   I also took the opportunity of reviewing my prints, using the magnifying glass and I discovered a whorl (like inside a loop) and a couple of arches which previously I thought were loops. Swami still made me a warrior, but a RECEPTOR type warrior, which brings it into line with the Teacher side of me.  My lists changed a bit, still no red meats, but I have Ostrich as a superfood and Emu and Turkey as Neutrals in the Poultry group.  I have got Rye and all types of wheat (including gluten) added to my Carbs group and in the dairy I now have Goat milk as neutrals.  The rest is pretty much the same.

BTW, I think my ridges are so much clear now compare to a few months ago, and I do not seem to have many white lines!!  

I produced the lists for both of us, stuck them on the fridge and a quick comparison makes me think that there are not that many differences between hubby and I, so it should be easy cooking in my kitchen.

Good !
It's very important to have a number of favorite foods not only allowed but also beneficial. It compensates our efforts to stay away from other foods we also love but are avoids.

I am really ok with my own list now. Meat and poultry are allowed each three times a week. Fish, 4 times a week. The "veggie" aspect of A's diet I first followed, and later of Warrior's I thought I was, really didn't please me. I think I would not have been able to follow those two diets strickly on the long course.

I also enjoy a lot grapefruit, apple and... blueberry juices, three superfoods. Without forgetting carrot juice, a diamond !

Except for Apple juice that is a neutral, they are all superfoods for me too, with Grapefruit a diamond!!

DH on the other hand has both Apple and Blueberry juices as neutral, but enjoys the same rating as me for carrots and Grapefruit juice!!

I meant, from the scientific point of view, if there is any chance that in some cases there could be the 3 options given for a person.  Unusual, but could it be scientifically possible?  

Labs close for holidays, this will have to wait a few days for the clarification from them ...

Cristina,

I have something that is like a whorl within a loop, which I don't feel I can call a whorl. (Doing so had me end up as a Teacher.)  I have now given it composite or loop and get the same Explorer diet with each of those. I can see that my decision to not call it a whorl makes sense because, I was having too many problems crop up on my teacher diet like new cavities, skin issues, allergies/asthma, and losing hair! I may have had some thyroid suppression.

Cristina, with your new picture, you don't seem to have a long head anymore. I don't feel that the head shape will make you 100% one thing or another. I have a long head and definitely am not a Warrior. Like you, I am receptive. Your head probably is one thing that points you a little in the direction of Teacher. For me, my main measurements (ie, advanced calculator ones), are Teacher traits, plus I do have a few whorls and GI issues too; my fingerprints have shifted me over to Explorer and it really feels right now.

Agathe, I'm like you. While I saw some benefit from the A BTD in terms of allergies, I couldn't sustain such a vegetarian diet, even though it had its appeal for a while. I love to eat nuts, fruits, veggies, beans and grains, but need the animal protein. I guess if I had concentrated more on fish, I would have been able to sustain the A diet longer. I'm glad I never ended up having to try the Warrior diet. I would have really been in bad shape.

I was being reserved until Chandon mentioned this..but when I saw the new photo
of Cristina and saw A2 listed along with Warrior, my first thought was Teacher. Face
looks more round than long to me.  And Cristina's personality "feels" to me Teacher-like too...the desire to be helpful and want to "teach" others which is very much like I am.

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!!).
So I went back and review my traits:

A+ = either Warrior or Teacher
A2 = Teacher
MN = Warrior
Secretor = Warror or Teacher
Index fingers reversed = Teacher

Torso longer than legs = Warrior or Teacher
Ecto-endomorph = Teacher
Sinew = Teacher (you can see the colour of my veins and the outline of my tendons clearly)
Slight Taster = Teacher
Narrow gonial angle = Teacher
Feeling = Teacher
High WHR = Warrior

Note: The two values in bold above, I changed now, I had it as endomorphic, but that is not me. I am not barrel chested or pear shaped, I am shapelly with more belly and boobs and arms than I need, but, they are moving down (slowwwwwly though), and will be ideal soon.  Slight taster makes more sense now than the super taster I had.  I taste things, but not to the extreme of finding cabbage taste awful,  

In doubt:
Lower/Upper leg measurements
Lower Longer = Warrior
Upper longer = Teacher
Very close measurements, equal or even upper favour  
Currently is set to Lower leg longer, changing to upper leg will increase the percentage in Teacher


finger prints
Who Am I kidding? They are all loops, a couple are standish loops with a right angle bend at the very bottom which make me think they could be arches ...  And even the one that seem to have like a one line closed arch  (whorl) it is inside a very definite loop.  In other words if my blood type were OAB instead of A I will be a definite Nomad!!! So, neither Warrior nor Teacher here, no warrior arches, no teacher whorls ... Had it changed the other day to indicate a couple of Arches, but changed back now and that gave me a Teacher GT!!  Sensitive Swami!

So i am looking back at the Teacher diet now that gives me Goat in the red meats, Turkey, ostrich and Squab (what is that?) as diamonds, emu beneficial and chicken as neutral (that rooster better behave now, it is looking dangerous for him!!).  Yogourt is there in SFs and of course the pecorinos, parmesan, romanos and others sharing that spot.  Kefir, Riccota , paneer, quark all gone to black dots ...  Now I have to consume 6 cups of live foods, I was strugling with 5!! and my fruit frequency is 3 times daily when it was only 2 before!  I like all the choices, I think I could live on this diet happily ever after ...

Please, do not judge or laugh at me, the journey to discovery is a tricky one, but at least I am blessed with the fact that I am doing it by choice and not forced upon me.  I am contemplating these changes because the weight is still moving slowly, so although feeling fantastic, good lab results, I need that extra push to shake the final kgs off. I have got to do it right, without having to depend on things like the 'weight loss pack'.  I want to do it by eating properly for my type.  It is defining that type that is the tricky part.  No complaints ...  At least I have SwamiX to help me do it and adapt as needed!!

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

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...

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

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

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!)

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

Thanks for the humour girls, I needed it!!  

I am almost there to move one notch down on the scales.  This morning I saw a glimpsed of 83, but when came back from the walk and after having breakfast was back on 84.2Kg!!  I think it will be nearly a month since I hit 84! Talk about plateau!! I usually drink a lot while walking ... I am trying not to obsessed over it, but I cannot stop myself weighing every day, even two or three times a day!!  I do not know what has got into me!!! and I have adviced people so many times not to do that!!!  Slap, slap     ...   

I have been thinking too that the one thing that may be slowing down my weigh loss maybe the fact that my routine is all over the place.  For the last few weeks, I had been struggling  with my priorities, and my food routine has been at the losing end.  Very compliant with everything, but not reaching quotas of live foods and balanced proteins ... Too much going on around me ... Late nights affecting my wake/sleep pattern.  No problems to go to sleep, but not getting there early enough and not waking up early enough ... I am an early riser and I miss my early mornings ... 6, 6:30am is too late for me ...  I can almost hear Lola: alternate nostril breathing!  Yes, it has come in handy a couple of times, very relaxing.  Funny, when hubby tried to do it, he could not set the fingers up, bending the fingers the way the routine ask, made him feel funny, he actually went all off colour on the face!!  try to figure that one up!! he can use and bend his finger individually no problems, just that combo ... Anyway, I need patience and once these things around us settle down, it will be ok and the weight will fly down.  Although, I will be so proud of myself if I can achieve that in despite of stress situations ... That is why I am looking at GT/Warrior and reviewing my biometrics ... It is important to get it as close to right as I can.  

Simby, I will try to photo my fingerprint and post it, see what you think ...

Cristina   thanks.  Great idea Possum, even shoes can change the weight.

You probably know already that muscle weighs more than fat.  The scales CAN lie sometimes.  If you're exercising well, you could be putting weight on but losing fat.  You know holding water will send your weight up.  

What about measuring your waist, hips etc. instead of your weight, say once a week.  It shows more of how you are toning up and it may surprise you.  I don't really go by weight myself as I swell up at different times of the month and when it's hot, but clothes that fit and don't fit are an indication and whether my legs rub together or not (have thunder thighs no matter what I do ) .  

Maybe the full moon was interfering with you last night?   Sounds like you've been really busy lately and you need to take it easy - maybe too much stimulation?

It was bad when Dr asked me to step on the scales and I said "what, just after christmas?"   Bad time of year for routines and weight loss, hopefully it will all return to normal soon

Wise words girls as usual ...  
I was copying and pasting my shopping cards from Swami today, including neutrals, and guess who I came across in one of my food lists for red meats:
OPOSSUM!! No to worry though, it is in the avoids!! not that I would ever dare laying a teeth on our friends, no matter how shining their diamond coating may be!!!     I wonder what the rating of it is for our friendly and wise Possum?

Really CS? Why is that?    

PS: I mean, that identifying myself with Nomad traits makes me more like Teacher? Curious...

In the GenoType diet, the diets are sort of paired--with diet pairs being for people with common characteristics.

  • Hunter/Explorer
  • Gatherer/Warrior
  • Teacher/Nomad


One way you see this is in the supplement recommendations. Since the paired diets have common characteristics some supplements recommended for the pairs are the same (not all the supplements, just some).

The primary characteristic that the diet pairs share is a worldview.  Teacher and nomads share a receptor worldview.

...came across in one of my food lists for red meats:
OPOSSUM!! No to worry though, it is in the avoids!! You bet it is!!?? not that I would ever dare laying a teeth on our friends, no matter how shining their diamond coating may be!!!     I wonder what the rating of it is for our friendly and wise Possum?  
Not such a high rating today...after stupidly nibbling on Christmas pudding last night...bah humbug I hate Christmas

Hijack alert:

SWAMI just told me that I was a receptor Warrior!  The advanced calculator in the book pegged me as a Teacher.

*sigh*

Oh, and opossum is actually eaten by people down here where I live.  They say once possum has been cooked in a house, you can smell it forever.

Poor possum's get blamed for everything  .  Christmas food is so naughty , but I enjoyed some dried cranberry homemade treats this christmas that weren't too naughty.  Seem to be the only dried fruit I like at the mo (no sulphites, just sugar ).

Sparkler - the overall label doesn't seem to matter so much, did you get foods that you like to eat (on your SWAMI)?  (Well the receptive part fits with Teacher anyway) Don't worry about hijacking this thread, Cristina is a great sport.

So true, Im Nomad by the book but Teacher by SWAMI,  for me Supps. (Teacher) work very well. Synergist Nomad/Teacher (Omega 3/6 from flax seed )
is so good, before I tried some Omega3/6 and didnt feel ok.

Cristina,
I just finally dived into this long thread last night, and couldn't stop until I read the entire thing!   It's wonderful that you are documenting your journey with the Swami, and I know it will help so many other people.

I just received my swami a couple of days ago, and I'm glad that I read your thread before I got into it.  Now I realize that the process can be some trial and error until we get it right.  Now I won't expect to be able to sit down and have it done with on my lunch break!!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Sparky, I like being intuitive, only get into trouble when I stop listening to my intuition.  Some people don't understand how I think though, that's their problem    

Glad you got some foods you like, maybe some new ones to discover hey?  Lots of foods on the diet are still new to me but getting there.  Becoming an accidental chef is fun.

Dear friends, I have so much catching up to do now!  So many interesting things going on in the forum!!Sorry I have been away for so many days, but it has been unavoidable.

2010 started as a roller coaster of situations and emotions that required the help of as many of my reset genes as I could summon!  The big mouth, loud, 'emotion controlling' genes (the bad ones) kept on pushing their way around, but thanks to the strictly compliance in eating for my type of the last few months, the good moderator genes took control of the situation and the crisis is now over!!  It does not matter what was the situation or why, but how I coped with it is what counts here.  Sometimes life happens that make us sad, or as Lola wisely told me, we make ourselves react sad to situations, but, we are humans, still struggling in our way to gene perfection and bound to trip and fall when least expected, but, as long as we pick ourselves up, it does not matter, they are all learning experiences.  I am talking strictly on a internal type of reaction here, no tripping on the diet or lifestyle at all!  I can assure you that this is the type of situation that in my youth would have caused me an ulcer (ooops, I did have a duodenal ulcer in my 20s!), but not this time.  Armed with knowledge learnt here about  the calming chamomile teas, the soothing of my dairy (Peccorino, feta, gouda and yogurt), the stabilizing effect of at least 6 cups of my live favorities (including onion, carrot, zucchini, leek, spinach ..), the comfort of the sprouted bread and diamond spreads (peanut, almond butter, barley malt, maple syrup), with the energizing boost from my fruits (blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, ...) and the support of turmeric, curry, basil, thyme ... and Teacher supps (yes, this was the one occasion I did have them everyday - my good genes demanded it!!), we rode the crisis OK, DH and I, of course his genes had been getting indirect help from my home cooking  for both of us!!  .  OK, OK, glad everything is now behind and hubby and I can now relaxed and concentrate in ourselves.    

That is what we thought until this morning!  What a strange day this happened to be.  We find ourselves getting up at 4am to be ready to depart on a 125km trip to Brisbane at 5:00am to avoid traffic to be at this place with enough time to meet a deadline for a test (nothing to do with bodily functions, sort of material, building test).  Cutting a long story short we managed to get ourselves trapped in an elevator at 7:00am in the morning in a city complex, waiting for someone to open it for us.  I had been trapped in a strong room before at work (somebody locked it while I was still inside doing software stock taking, no pretty situation to find yourself in), so I tried to control those memories flooding in, sat on the floor and started nostril breading while hubby pressed the alarm button on the lift!!! We were rescued within minutes, after all, how unnoticed can a lift be in Brisbane on a weekday? Still, not a moment too soon if you asked me.  So, right on time, we took the sample to this lab, hoping it will turn out negative, but a couple of hours later the results were anything but negative.  Worry, apprehension, panic ...Once again, those rotten genes trying to have a feast on us!! Moderators, moderator genes where are you?  It was not until after the 125km trip back home, a few more hours of meetings, discussions, analysis and what not, that everything was resolved to our satisfaction and we could finally take a deep breath of relieve!! We celebrated by shouting ourselves 2 soyaccinos looking at the sea, eating compliant dory fish dinner with rutabaga oven baked chips (baked at home beforehand), and just appreciating what we have, and concentrating on the beauty of life before it passes us by ...

The moral of this story is that life happens, but we always have the choice of abandoning ourselves to it, or facing it the best we can by attending to us, me, myself, numero uno, and keep on fortifying those genes the way we are supposed to, because they are the only ones that can carry us through life in the best possible way !

Quoted from Teresa S
Cristina, congratulations on your good lab results. Now you know your husband's blood group for sure.  Your son could be an "A" or an "O"  And yes, Lewis b-  is equivalent to "non secretor"


Finally my son took the plunge and did the blood test for grouping, lewis, MN and A1A2.  Except that the A1A2 and MN test results were never done by the lab because the doctor never wrote on the form specifically that that is what it wanted done!!  Now son has gone overseas, so no chance of knowing those for a while.  Will be surprised if he does it while overseas.  Never mind, at least now we know that he is a A Rh(D), le(a-b+) in other words, Secretor A positive, like me.

Looking at the characteristics, I think my daughter may be a A non secretor like her dad...

And if A2 are suppose to tolerate meat better, then my son is for sure an A2, i cannot guess what MN he may be though, not sure about the significance of those in our physiology or personality?

Piece by piece the puzzle is taking shape ...

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!!

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...

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
