I bet Dr D has it all figured out!  All we have to worry about is getting it as soon as possible and apply it to our lives!  

Cristina, my bet is that either you or Lola will notice it first!!!

Well, this is weird. I just checked mine and all the selections in 6, 7 and 8 are totally blank!!! How could this happen? I spent a lot of time going through all that stuff, besides digging up lab reports, etc. ??? ???

This happened to me a few hours ago!!!  My DNA info and all medical history gone!!! I update it and change my GT to Explorer!   I think I put some different info though which shows how close I am between my GTs 38% for each Warrior and Teacher and now 40% Explorer ...

The thing is that even when I saved it, logging out and back in will find those fields blank again!!! I had to do it a few times before finally it accepted the changes ...  The other estrange thing is that I received an e-mail from support (when I did not report any faults) saying that my profile has been updated!!!  Quickly went in expecting to have new version ... but not, same old SwamiX ... But the fields were not blank this time ... so whatever the glitch was, it seems to be working fine now ... well, at least a couple of hours ago, when I last checked!!!  

Looks like we may get that update soon enough!!!  Lola watch out!!!

What? There is a new Swami software program about to be released? I just purchased my Swami Xpress software last week! I asked the customer service lady on the phone if I would be getting all of the software updates to the program automatically without any additional cost, and she said yes! Now I am hearing about this Swami XP2 software that is about to come out any day now, and we have to purchase it separately? Is this true? What's going on here?

And.... what's this about our GenoType changing? I didn't know that was possible. Dr. D implies in his GenoType book, that we only have one GenoType! Can someone please explain to me how using the Swami software would change our GenoType? That's disappointing. How would I know if my GenoType changes? When I registered with Swami, it asked me what my GenoType is, and I entered all of the necessary data from all of the tests from the book. So how is it possible that my GenoType would change in the future?

If you select a GenoType in the software, SWAMI will take the value you specified over the one it calculates.  It will not change.


If you choose to allow SWAMI to use the value it calculates rather than the value you specify it will use a more sophisticated algorithm to calculate the GenoType than the one presented in the book.

The SWAMI algorithm uses more data than the book does, thus it sometimes gets different results than one calculated using the book. But you can always tell SWAMI to not "Determine GenoType For Me" and specify the value you want to use.

Oh wow! This is news to me! This changes everything! I logged back into my Swami acct. and chose the option of letting Swami calculate my GenoType for me, and lo and behold I am not a Gatherer like I thought! It says I am a Hunter GenoType!

I am having a hard time understanding how the calculations (tests, questions, measurements, etc. from the GenoType book) could have possibly been wrong? Using the tables & advanced calculators in the book (having submitted every possible answer asked of me) it concluded without a doubt that I was a Gatherer. A Hunter GenoType was not even a possibility for me as far as the book was concerned. So how is it possible that the book can be so wrong?  

The data that I entered into the Swami software program was NOT different, nor did it ask for hardly any new info that I hadn't already used to calculate my GenoType with the book. Sounds like the book is really outdated and shouldn't be used to calculate one's GenoType anymore. I wish I had known months ago that it was possible that the GenoType that I calculated with the book could be the wrong GenoType for me. It turns out I have been eating all wrong for myself. Yikes!

I noticed some people have a percentage listed next to their GenoType, I assume there is a way to find out how much of a Hunter GenoType I am? Where do I go to get my percentage?

I have to say, this all seems to contradict what Dr. D was saying in his book: people can only be ONE GenoType, not half this and half that. He made it sound like it was very definitive, and that it couldn't change. I had planned on teaching this GenoTyping to my clients using the book's tests, but now I am seeing that the book's GenoType calculators are unreliable. How am I supposed to account for this?

Yes, it is always better to let Swami X calculate your genotype ... let it do the work for you ...

That 'hardly any new info' that you think is insignificant, is what pulls you apart from the generalization implied in the Genotype book!  The GT book is not wrong or outdated ... it is applying general rules across the board ... Your Swami report is more detailed and applies that extra data to give you a lifestyle report better suited for you!

I noticed some people have a percentage listed next to their GenoType, I assume there is a way to find out how much of a Hunter GenoType I am? Where do I go to get my percentage?

If you select not to abreviated report option, you will find the % value for your labelled Swami GT in about page 4.

I have to say, this all seems to contradict what Dr. D was saying in his book: people can only be ONE GenoType, not half this and half that. He made it sound like it was very definitive, and that it couldn't change. I had planned on teaching this GenoTyping to my clients using the book's tests, but now I am seeing that the book's GenoType calculators are unreliable. How am I supposed to account for this?  

The fact that SwamiX gave you a GT name it does not mean that you are 100% that GT, it only means that you have a certain percentage that matches that particular GT, the rest of the percentage is a mixture within you of characteristics and trends typical to your blood type or the other GTs possible in your blood type.  

Dr D explains it very well when he says that each one of us can only be one GT and one GT only ... this means that you are YOU and I am ME, each one of us are unique individuals ... how many of us in the world? billions, trillions ... well, that is how many GTs we should have ... all individually different ... can you imagine trying to give unique names to each?  Do not get hang up on the label ... your Hunter Swami Report is unique to you and it is different to my friend's Hunter Swami report and that is the way it should be ...

EatToLive, you will also notice that others with the same genotype who have used swami wil have somewhat different beneficials, neutrals and avoids. Others of your genotype who have not used swami will all have the same recommendations as you before you applied swami. Swami individualizes your recommendations based on the additional data. Much more accurate for your individual needs, and I imagine there are some tipping points beyond lectin issues etc. that move an avoid food in the book list to neutral or even beneficial with the swami calculators.

I hope this helps.

Are you sure it doesn't allude to approaching your swami recommendations as a combination of bloodtype diet and genotype diet?

I rechecked my swami report and I perhaps I didn't interpret properly.  Here is what I was referring to from the report:

The six GenoTypes described by Dr. D'Adamo are very broad characterizations; no individual is purely one GenoType. Since many of the GenoType characteristics overlap, most people will have aspects of at least two or more GenoTypes. However SWAMI Xpress uses powerful statistical tools to calculate which single GenoType best captures the highest degree of your unique variation.

I would appreciate it if any O Explorers would PM me if they suddenly notice that ice cream and/or coffee become a Diamond.  


Ditto... You are my kind of gal.. haha at least if we could have cream?  yes.. please.




Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Please, swami gurus, correct me if I am wrong, but the foods recommended should  not change for an individual based on their own perception of genotype identity.
Am I correct?.

EatToLive, a similar thing happened to me, in terms of genotype. I appeared to be a Gatherer, based on my own calculations. I have many Gatherer characteristics, such as curvy hips, blood type,etc. At earlier points, I have carried more weight--esp. in the years after pregnancies.  Now I am more lean. Of course my blood type, O, has stayed consistent--to my chagrin!  (I would prefer to be vegetarian)
When I first entered data for swami, I entered Gatherer as the genotype. Swami told me that while I had entered Gatherer, they disagreed and viewed me as a Hunter. The Strength tests support Hunter on several more points than Gatherer.

But the important thing is the specific foods that are calculated to be of benefit, not which "genotype club" I belong to.

Your particular, Swami-ized hunter diet originated from the ER4YT diet.  But other factors applied within Swami (such as health issues and family history) further refine where a specific food falls on the beneficial/neutral/avoid list. It's a matter of a higher degree of specificity with Swami.

Say for example, you have a genetic predisposition to a particular disease. A food item that might be OK for a general ER4YT type O diet might be ill-advised for you personally given this predisposition, because existing and potential health issues are considered as well. This is why the Swami approach is so strongly advocated. It's further along the evolutionary path from the original blood-type diet foundation.

The ER4YT diet is still better than any "one size fits all" diet, but Swami is better yet because it is individualized to your specific conditions.

A Hunter GenoType was not even a possibility for me as far as the book was concerned. So how is it possible that the book can be so wrong?

If you look at the Advanced Tables in the book, they only use 3 ratios + 3 Blood Type questions.  SWAMI utilizes ALL of the information entered to calculate the best match for you.  To include the number of parameters SWAMI uses in the book tables, would require huge tables that people would never be able to wade through.  This is why SWAMI is so beneficial for many people.

If you determine the Genotype, instead of allowing SwamiX to determine it, Swami report will only give you foods that are appropriate for that genotype you forced it to report on ... In other words, the lists from a forced upon Swami Genotype vs the Genotype determined by Swami X itself, are DIFFERENT! (unless of course you are the unique individual that encapsulates 100% of the said Genotype) .... Always let SwamiX do  all the calculations .... Simple and accurate!
