I would imagine that when the new version is released in its entirety, we will be notified on the board? I doubt much will change for me although for the fun of it, I put myself as a Gatherer on SWAMI and the diet was quite close except for the cheeses. I would sure love to get cottage back; the kind I used to buy is a pressed cake and has no gums in it and I have been craving it for some time now. Love it with fruit!

Yeah, you people who are getting changes, are you changing some kind of input?  Because my list stayed the same last night.  But I didn't change anything myself.  


I didn't change anything when I ran my SWAMI two days ago.......except that 3 months ago I did add my Haplogroup but that didn't change my genotype.  Perhaps now it was accounted for.

Dianne, I get farmer's cheese as a neutral.  Do you get that?  It's rather similar in taste to cottage cheese,
just drier.

Farmer cheese is lovely for some reason neutral for me, too, like mozzarella.

I see you're in Finland...I'll bet your farmer's cheese tastes better than what is called farmer's
cheese in America....Ours is like a block of dry cottage cheese that crumbles when you slice
into it.  It's more like dry ricotta than mozzarella...

3 of my genotypes are all very close in percentage.  Either way, mine hasn't changed in the last couple of weeks.  But I didn't go in and change anything.  I'm wondering if these people had put a new input in.  Because if I change some of my inputs, which I don't need to, things change.

This looks scrummy! Wonder if we can get it in the UK? I'm allowed farmers cheese on my Swami I think.

which is also known in English as Finnish squeaky cheese, is a fresh cheese traditionally made from cow's beestings, rich milk from a cow that has recently calved. Reindeer or even goat milk can also be used. Commercially available versions are typically made from regular milk, and they lack some colour and flavour because of this. The cheese originally comes from Ostrobothnia[disambiguation needed], Northern Finland and Kainuu.

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!

I did not change a thing.  I simply went in to change my weight, and noticed right off the bat that I was changed to a Teacher.  Dr. D may have run something after making his updates and some Genotypes were changed just from his changes.  I then updated my weight, retook the M-B personality test, which changed to the Artist (ISFP), and it still had Teacher.  So, I'm a Teacher, and actually looking forward to the changes to the diet.

I was eating Farmers cheese with omelets several mornings a week, and always noticed my stomach gurgling afterwards, but just thought it was part of some 'detox' process or something.  Now, without it, I'm fine.  It is a dot on my new SWAMI, so that explains it.  Dr. D is definitely narrowing in on things.  But, I could also give him more info like Lewis, MN, and A1/A2, which I've yet to do, and I really want to, but seems like it is impossible to do, due to unavailability of testing in the US.  I did the DNA thing with National Geographic, so he has that, which should tell him a lot about me.

Totally different....I'm not sure if the farmer's cheese we can find in America is as correct a SWAMI compliant match as yours is.

I just re-ran my SWAMI as well, and got no changes.  I wasn't looking for any changes, so I'm not disappointed...  I wonder if those that are getting changes have run it longer ago than thoise of us who aren't getting changes...  
Prior to last night, I last ran mine in early January 2011.

Yeah, I jump on mine every so often to see if it has updated.  Or I tweak something here and there and see what happens.  So, I've messed with mine several times since January.  I wonder when Adam had last done his......

I had changed my weight and was changed to Teacher.  Then I noticed that I never selected whether my wrist tendons were visible or not.  I changed that and then had to put a new blood test result in there.  Even with checking off liver problems and infections, still came out a teacher.   I guess the weight issues I have are from being toxic.  Certainly with Lyme and coinfections, that fits being toxic for sure.  

Still waiting on National Geographic Haplogroup results.  Should be another 3 weeks and then I can put that in too.  

I am making the changes on my shopping list.  At least my Nomad husband and I cross over on some foods, so if I have to stop eating something, he just gets to eat it!! HeHe.

I don't remember exactly, but it has been several months.  Probably early spring 2011, as I fell off the wagon bigtime early this year and ballooned my weight up to 260 by mid-summer.  Down to 230 now and want to keep it going down to around 200 or so, which is my ideal weight.

Where does it say that your Swami has been updated 100%?

Sorry, my mistake in reading quickly.. it doesn't say updated..  It says your SWAMI intake form is now 100% complete.......and that is probably something that has always been there but I never noticed.  I read it quickly and
told myself it meant that SWAMI (update) had been completed.  But I was wrong.

I'm still a Teacher.

After going through the information I put into my swami, the one thing that changed me back to a Teacher was the visable tendons section.  It said optional, so I had not selected anything in the drop down box.  When I select visible, or very visible, it puts me as a Teacher.  Not visible puts me as an explorer.  Weird that one tiny thing like tendons  being visible or not would change your geno type.

I do follow a lot of the background as a Teacher.  The only thing that doesn't make sense is the weight gain, but that started well into my 40's.  I was an underweight kid and a normal weighted adult until sometime in my 40's.  Even then, I wasn't much over what I should weigh until the Lyme disease hit.  

So maybe I am a Teacher.  Not happy about less lamb each week, but I am going to make the changes.  Biggest problem I have is getting a good variety of fish available to me.  I can't find a lot of the types in my swami list and some of the available fish like salmon, I just can't eat right now.  It just sits in my stomach and does not digest.  I can eat cod, and am able to eat water packed sardines now in my salad.  Can't find any Mahi Mahi again, red snapper, tilapia that is wild caught.  I don't mind fish 5 times a week as long as I can have some kind of variety.  I keep looking online but mostly I am finding all kinds of salmon, tuna and cod wild caught and nothing else.
in.  

Even with being sick with Lyme disease, Swami has just saved my stomach.  I am using the Digestive Gold and Lipo Gold enzymes and they are really helping.


When my halplogroup dna test comes back, it may change swami again.

I have no visible tendons either, which doesn't go along with a Teacher.  The addition of
my Haplogroup didn't change my SWAMI.  What might have changed your weight (gaining)
is toxicity and that goes along with being a Teacher.  My personality fits both Teacher and
Explorer.  I'm quiet for the most part and don't like conflict -- the soul of an artist (and I'm
an artist)....so that fit me from the start...but also for an Explorer "I like to do it my way"...
and the food/environmental sensitivities...and the fact that Teacher is the one genotype that
gets so much dairy. I do poorly on dairy and not much better on eggs.  Yet, I don't like meat
and never did.  Prefer lighter foods like fish and plants.

So for each person, one tiny thing might put you over the line and change your genotype.
I feel I fall right between Teacher and Explorer...but having no visible tendons didn't keep
me as an Explorer.  DIfferent for everyone, I'm pretty sure.

I've got that chronic Lyme thing since I'm in my late 20s...SWAMI did keep me from having
Lyme flareups...Genoma Security seems to be an amazing formula for me.  Perhaps the older
we are, the longer we're dealing with a health issue, the longer it takes to feel perfectly well.
I have more stamina..I can exercise 3x a week...Five years ago I couldn't walk up a flight of
stairs without crying.  I have made progress. I shouldn't complain about the small stuff..

You are right, even a small change can make the difference. Swami doesn't know about the toxic weight gain as there are no questions that address that.  I did mark the infections section.  

I am at my ideal weight now after almost two years of on and off dieting.  It is easier to stay close to my weight on swami, but I still go up on the scale when I eat something that my stomach can't digest.  And these are beneficial foods on my swami.  I have to eat very lightly for a couple of days to let the offending food work it's way out.
