Hi Ellie,
I'm obviously new to SWAMI so no expert, but yes, you can input medical conditions, allergies etc. I'm a bit confused about that aspect too, because even though Tom put in a mercury filter for fish, that I had white lines on my fingerprints and am (possibly) allergic to cow's dairy, I still got tuna, spelt and several cow's milk cheeses listed as beneficials, which doesn't make sense to me. However, he also input honey and alfalfa sprouts as being a problem for me and they appeared in the avoid column. So I don't know if it's a glitsch in the programme or what, but I shall ask him next time I see him.

BTW, the reason for alfalfa sprouts is that I have an auto-immune condition and alfalfas may trigger lupus or exacerbate existing auto-immune.

The mercury filter is available in SWAMI GenoType, but not in XPRESS.

In SWAMI when you tell it to deemphasize a type of food, it often just lowers ratings and does not totally eliminate them.  

In the GenoType edition it is possible to set a specific food value to avoid, that may have been done in your case for Alfalfa. The setting of a specific food value is a different sort of action than saying your lactose intolerant.

SWAMI Xpress does not allow us to set an individual food value, but if one knows they should not eat a specific food like Alfalfa, you do not have to eat it if SWAMI Xpress rates it highly.

One of my concerns, as mentioned above, is that recommended foods may not be available where i live..(UK). So some feedback from fellow UKers would be interesting..



I will point out that many of the food listed on SWAMI are not easy to get in the US either.

But most of the food ingredients used in the UK should be listed in SWAMI.  There is a vernacular settings to have the foods listed using names that are more common in the UK.

Thanks C_Sharp. Ellie, I'm also in the UK and still haven't fathomed out all the translations yet. Re availability, there are foods in several categories that we couldn't get, especially fish, but there's more than enough that we can get quite easily, sufficient to provide a varied diet rich in beneficials.
