Jenny so funny !  
There was a possum in our garage hiding after we locked up the other day.  Trying to get out knocked half full oil container down.  The lid flew off and oil all over half of the garage including newly washed car and tyres so we couldn't drive anywhere!  bikes weren't affected so I rode down the road for some degreaser.  Some good came of it, clean garage and started riding bikes again - great fun.  

Cute and cuddly aussie wildlife hey!

What about a chicken wire enclosure hooked up to an old car battery that would give a harmless little zap?  We were talking about the possums attacking our tomato bushes and thought of that.  Too cruel?  I don't think so.

This is survival of the fittest-it's us against them... but my Moggie might get zapped.
You know those metal cages that utilities put over holes in the pavement to stop us falling in? One of those, covered with permeable white garden cloth, which could be lifted on either side for planting,weeding and harvesting purposes would do. Maybe I'll go to the authority concerned and beg for a 'used' one?
The sad thing about the possums is that I have never even seen them, just got their calling cards on the tiles, and a stripped garden. You must have got a fright when your poss. leapt out of the garage.

Very interesting Jenny. Right now I am sort of eating what I KNOW works for me and ignoring SWAMI in some ways.

D of S, you are such an individual...doing it your way.
Having paid my money I am inclined to hitch my wagon to this star, and carry on exactly as told until such time that I believe it is not working...but after two days I am very satisfied and hope that day will never come.
Your plan about retesting Prop is a good one, do tell us what happens. I haven't even done that yet as I could not find any strips locally, and lost the initiative, but may do it by ordering through Gina in NZ. That, and the head measurement (which is not Warrior in my case by the way) both need to be added to my profile. However,I am confident that my general plan will not change. I printed out 47 pages of recipes today for a rainy day, and I don't anticipate needing any other cook books for the rest of my life!

I am a non-taster with PTC and PROP.

My lower leg and upper leg are so close to each other that maybe if I had them switched back I would only get Teacher. Actually I know I would only get Teacher.

Right now I am just selecting GTD3 when I run my SWAMI. I wonder though if my food would change by switching my lower leg to upper leg again. I feel like at this point SWAMI is doing very little for me. I mostly say this because there is NO QUESTION AT ALL that I need the hard cheeses to control bacteria. Without I just fall straight out of health no matter what I do. I also feel awkward about calling for SWAMI changes, like they think I am doing other people with it.

If your upper and lower legs are close enough to be a tie, lower leg always wins the tie, right?

If your response to: "What is your Upper to Lower Leg Ratio:", is incorrect I recommend contacint NAP to have it reset, rather than overiding the calculation of GenoType.

I am having trouble caring. I feel so over worked and over budget.

I am going to eat cheeses that give me balance. I can measure again and again but nothing changes the fact that I will see no health come out of a pure warrior diet. My intestines will not respond to just Kefir and Yogurt, period.

(I am going to try sodium benzoate ones, PROP, instead of PTC paper as the instructions note some people taste one but not the other)


That makes sense. It seems GTD uses PROP taster status specifically, so perhaps another method can possibly not give the right results. I think Plucky said she used the method of counting taste buds and it turned out to be wrong!

Maybe you're a Teacher after all. Dairy can be so problematic for people, so it would seem that our reaction to the dairy in a given diet would be rather telling.

DOS,If you going to assume, do it to benefit you!!  I am asuming that Nap staff are so helpful, so friendly and willing to help that I will not hesitate to give them a call if I ever need to have anything reset. After all, they want us to use the stuff and promote it as an efficient, flexible tool for everyone to use.   So, go ahead, do the necessary changes you need to do in order to get what you know works for you.

I have already done it once. I just... I can spot a Warrior in a crowd you know, and they respond to the warrior cheese. I do not look like them or respond to the cheese. The only thing I respond to are the principles of the Teacher (aside from maybe the amounts). Also personality wise I am a Teacher by far...

Would swami give me very different results if the leg status changed? I mean that is the only difference if I am manually making it Teacher.

I see you are still a nontaster. I guess people have been struggling with the leg measuring issue, so perhaps that is it.

Maybe just wait a while and then, when you are relaxed and have plenty of time, take your time remeasuring/assessing each thing and compare it to what you have. Then if there is a difference, you will feel more confident about it. Have you gotten anyone to help you with the measuring? They recommend having someone help with it. I got my husband to make sure I did the seated height correctly because that is where I messed up the first time.

I have had help with all the height, seated, that stuff. My torso will always be longer unless I get in a high speed collision accident or something to pop vertebrae.

Again I am not sure I care anymore. The difference between the two lists seem negligible. I can not see SWAMI doing anything for me. At most I expect to kick the candida or bacteria, whatever it is, again. I have no other expectations.

Hey Destroyer of Smiles...You seem to have a simmiliar predicament to what I do. I'm just curious what happens when you change your Myer-Briggs setting to optional. With me that automatically makes me a teacher.

I too, do have an issue with the prop taster test and that would also change my GT to Warrior. I currently have it on Slight Taster but to be completely honest I didn't taste a bitterness but just barely detected that there must be some chemical in the paper strip.

DOS, the shape of the head may also put you in the Warrior category.  I first entered my measurements the other way around and swami spat Warrior for me!!!  I have been doing so well with the Teacher diet for the last few weeks, that it did not take me long to spot the typo.

Some interesting thing with my Swami too which is relevant here, is that, whatever toxins are in Pecorino cheese that makes it a black dot for this healthy teacher, with white lines and a family history with cancer and diabetics, those same toxins makes it a diamond (peccorino cheese), when I input any digestive disorder and elevated liver enzymes.  Yogurt is a diamond food in the first case, but gets demoted to superfood in the second case.  Also all the other cheeses get promoted to diamond.

So obviously, these hard cheeses do balance our digestive organs (Teachers that is).

Why not do the program as it says, but add the few cheeses that you feel are important..

I revisited the measuring thing, and once again found either I was wrong or did something wrong. My lower is about a half inch shorter. Maybe this is a difference between some of my leg muscle not protruding so much so I could measure to where the crease line should be or just confusion (exercising less these days). In either which case it does make me a Teacher secreter or non-secreter.

I can not really see a difference between the lists. All I know is I want bacteria/fungi whatever is bugging me down. It makes me digest better so I can eat more, and makes my bladder hold way more. I also get a lot more feeling back in my senses of skin etc.

have you followed the yeast fungus protocol?
tried a low glycemic approach, until your problem gets resolved, while following your teacher swami, omitting foods to be avoided in
the allergies health series book for an A nonnie like you?

I d give that double approach a try, until you get your bacterial issue balanced out.

I got some Stinging Nettle because it was really cheap. Other than that I eat a lot of the foods associated with the protocols.
