Quoted from Symbi

Have you had time to check out your genoharmonic combos?  Any good ones?


I have printed out and read my combos.  So far, I haven't started with them because most are foods that I don't eat or don't do well with, yet.  I think I'm going to need to get real grounded first in my actual Swami food list, plus the frequency/portion recommendations, before I start on the genoharmonic combos.  It will give my sensitive digestive system time to adjust to changes little by little.  I have learned the hard way that sudden major dietary changes can throw me into IBS.  



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.

Hmmm this is exactly the reason for the hesitation I have

I was referring to the genoharmonic combinations by my statement, and not to the food lists.  

Actually the food lists give me all my favorite foods.  It's amazingly wonderful!  I got more foods than I had with Genotype since it's a combination of BTD and GTD!  

The Genoharmonic combos are a direction I haven't focused very much on yet because I have been, for the most part, loosely following some food combining policies.  I'm not ready to experiment away from that just yet.  I'm getting established with really trying to honor the frequency and portion recommendations with much more attention than I ever have before.  That in itself is bringing about some quick improvements in how I feel!

There's not much question of me being a Nomad.  

I'm glad to know, because I had always wondered if I was Explorer.

Congratulations Victoria!

You have overcome another layer of self-limitation!

I always have considered you an honorary type O, so a Reactive Nomad makes sense to me.

I base my most frequent kind of meal on one of my Genoharmonic combinations.  Armored with my GH combo and my supplements I have discovered that my healing has progressed beyond my expectations.

My most Genoharmonic tea is a constant feature of my day as well!  Happy eating!

Thank you, Paul!    An honorary type O?  Wow, I'm truly honored!    Just curious why.  ??  Is it my sparkling personality, quick wit and brilliant intellect?  (or something else? )  

Yes, the Genoharmonic combos .. I don't know how to bring them in, yet.  Honestly, I was so exhausted after the battle with my fingerprints, that I don't know when I'll get out of bed!!!  (just kidding!! )  lol!

Thanks for the support and encouragement!

Go ahead and input the data, possum. You can decide later not to follow your SWAMI, and you'll be no worse for the wear! Someone wise once told me (when I was trying to make a decision) that the time will pass either way, and wouldn't it be nice when it does to have made the choice!


I'm taking my power back by remembering that a belief is only a thought that I keep thinking,

I had a comment from an aquaintance a while ago. She said these diets |work, but aren't based on any science! I was not able to discuss my disagreement at the time, but was thinking the exact opposite, that it IS all based on science! This person is,  let's face it, sadly uninformed.

I want to re do my measurements just to make sure, and I'm aiming for this coming weekend to at least get started on my Swami!

Quoted from Victoria


Best I can tell, Symbi, all the ones I could see were ulnar loops.  Since my dad had Alzheimers disease, all those ulnar loops didn't make me too happy, but it's just another reason why I stay so closely to a Superfood diet!  


Victoria is there a connection between ulnar loops and Alzheimers? Mine were all Ulnar loops...

According to the Genotype book, it's a very strong indicator if most of them are.  I forget what it said.  8 or higher.  I have 9, and my 10th is a loop the other way.  And my Grandma had alzhiemers.  My poor wife.  Except maybe this diet and methylating will help overcome it.

Victoria,
Congratualtions on your Swamixpress. I was realy excited when I got mine. I had been following the gatherer version from the book when it first came out. I did fine initally, but plateaued after 3 months. There have been some very stressful 'teenager' issues in the past few months. Plus I had been having some problems with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other physical ailments. Then add in I found out my thyroid was having problems I had low levels of free T4 and so had to go on thyroid meds. I had reaction to the fillers after almost a year and half. They took me off for 2 months started back on at a low dose, but did not ramp me up fast enough and I have had problems ever since. I gained 20 pounds and can't get rid of it. I finally have a doctor willing to work with me, but I think we are waiting too long to address the problem and  we need to ramp up my T4 compound from .25 to .5. I am hoping it works, and if all fails I will consult the TX Thyroid Institute late this summer when I am out for other things.I do suspect more is going on. Right now I pray for balance and peace. For who have missed me, I am still alive and kicking.


'And some of us would die-so other men can stand up on their feet like men. A great many are going to die for that. They have in the past. They will a hundred years from now-two hundred. God grant there will always be men good enough.(James Otis)' Johnny Tremain (Forbes)
