I love SWAMI so much and my husband is so impressed that we want to get SWAMI for him, too.

There is only one problem...

All ten fingerprint patterns are needed for SWAMI to calculate results.  The problem lies in the fact that my husband lost the tip of one finger (the whole joint).  

SWAMI would not allow this and would not calculate the result since he cannot enter all the required fields.

Is there a way around this?

Very good question, sometimes it is not just the case of a missing finger or limb that is the problem, sometimes, it is just plain hard to interpret people's fingers, because of age deterioriatiion or injury or other.

The genotype book indicates to do the best we can to interpret the prints, and if we cannot categorize it easily to use composite (which is like a mixture of two or more patterns), or just leave it out.  

Swami will not proceed with the calculations without us putting all fingerprint data in.  So, unless experienced experts in the subject tells us otherwise,  imho, we are left with two educated options:

1.- follow the trend on the other fingerprints.  If the fingerprints in the remainder fingers are clearly identifiably, there is a certain pattern they follow, then it would be safe to assume the missing finger should fall in that patern.

2.- There is no clear pattern with the other fingers, Archs, Loops, Whorls, some good and clear, others crowded with white lines, no logical deduction possible for missing finger.  I would go for the composite choice.  With such a mixture, it kind of follows the trend.

You can also try every possible combination for him and see how it affects the Genotyping and food lists.  I have done that with a couple for one of my fingers, (just for the purpose of answering this question) and my lists and genotyping did not change at all.  I did not try all possible combos though.  

Good work Spatz, it will be fantastic to have hubby as a co-swamier in the household!!

Ulnar loops are the most common pattern so one could guess that (particularly if he has a lot of other ulnar loops), but I would contact NAP technical support and ask what to do.

Just click on the support tab for online support Monday-Friday, 9 AM-5 PM EST

Or phone:

1.203.761.0042

or email

bobm@northamericanpharmacal.com




65 per cent of all fingerprints are loops and ulnar loops predominate
30 per cent are whorls
5 per cent are arches

You might also guess that is was the same as the corresponding finger on the opposite hand.

I'll call them when I order it, if they have no way to do anything, I'll put every single pattern in the to see how it affects the rating

Thanks, both of you

Quoted from C_Sharp

65 per cent of all fingerprints are loops and radial loops predominate


I thought it was Ulnar loops that were more common.

Oops. I had originally written ulnar, but changed it when I found two web sites that both said radial was more common.  I have now changed it backed to ulnar.

The fingerprint patterns are no longer a time locked field in SWAMI Xpress, so if you change your mind about what a fingerprint pattern you can change them without having to contact NAP.

We received hubby's SWAMI:  He's definitely a warrior.  He came out 70%!  

There are a couple things that he did not fill out (personality, secretor, etc)  the optionals, but we'll do that as we get them.
