Quoted from Kim
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.


All I can add is that Lyme is a toxicity of a whole different matter. It's got a stealth component
plus a viral component....flare ups that affect every system of the body.  I'm at the point where
my weight doesn't fluctuate and I'm close to my ideal weight.  I too will suddenly find a food
that doesn't make my gut happy...even beneficial foods on my SWAMI.  I had to eliminate
dairy and eggs....in order to find a way to quiet my reactivity...  But this allergic thing for
me goes through cycles.  I started my SWAMI eating cheese and eggs ...when suddenly, I developed an intolerance for both.  Taking them out of my diet right now to see if I'm correct.... that it might be one or both of these foods, I can later add them back very carefully, one food at a time and re-check for tolerance.   But for now, my body seems happy off both foods.

From my experience, if I suspect a food doesn't work, I take it out of my diet until I'm feeling
ready to try again.  Sometimes beans will bother me...sometimes I digest them perfectly. When
you have Lyme issues, it sort of colors your world, doesn't it...

I think this is why I'm not typed as an Explorer....because at the heart and soul of who i am,
if you take Lyme out of the picture, I'm not an overreactive person to foods or my environment.
Of course a general SWAMI doesn't take these types of issues into consideration.

As far as marking the infections section, I did too...but prior to Lyme, I would have to say that
I hadn't taken any antibiotics since I was a child. I had two bacterial infections as a child...Scarlet Fever...impetigo...that I remember...Never an ear infection or even tonsillitis.....Most of my adult illnesses were colds, viruses and bugs I caught from my children...not infections that required antibiotics.  So I'm not really sure I'm fighting any bacterial infection anymore...Taking Genoma Security helps to remove the biofilms from bacteria.  I feel it's working...I feel pretty healthy.

Chloe, good to read your post.
I am celebrating my 10th anniversary of the D'adamo w.o.l. this month, and finding that I continue to want to refine my diet and activity. On the latter I have just given myself a gift of an exercise program that I plug into the TV and perform every day if I choose to...that covers the days that are too wet, too hot or too cold to go walking.
On food, I am starting to suspect that some angle of wheat may be a small issue for me..I now notice that I get stomach bloating occasionally which makes my waist band too tight...so I have a progressive plan to eliminate wheat, (using spelt instead), and if that fails, I will eliminate spelt, and failing that, eliminate all gluten products. Could have a good side effect in weight control which is always a challenge for me.



Eating half and exercising double.

I feel the same way as you.  Before I had health problems, I used to be around chemicals and what not and never felt TOO awful.  I worked in a cabinet shop for 4 years.  Although that may have help lead to further problems down the road.  I don't know.  But I was very hearty before getting lyme.  I'm not sure how long it's been in my system though.  I have a sneaking suspicion of when, but not sure.  The first sign of something ever being wrong was a consistent arrhythmia.  It would go away, quickly, but it eventually got worse.  Then one day, the guts just stopped working severely.  So I try to go back and remember who I was before it all started, and take that into account a little bit, but regardless of that, I am who I am now, and that's the most pertinent.  Because I'm trying to work back to who I was.  And fwiw, your post gave me hope.  There are times when I'm fatigued to the point that I'd rather not go up some stairs.  It's not every day, but this spring has brought about some pretty intense fatigue.  And your post has given me hope that it can be overcome.  I am getting better.  But it's sloooooow.  But thank you.

My doctor and I went through my history and we can see Lyme symptoms 10 years ago.  Going through the history of symptoms, accidents, stress, you can see that my immune system had enough and just went off the cliff 4 years ago.  

My white count is low, I have a gene mutation (MTHFR C677T single copy gene mutation) where I can't make folic acid or B12.  I have to take prescription strength folic acid and do two B12 injections every week.  My adrenals are so low they are putting me back on cortef.  Lyme and coinfections have pretty much shut off my immune system.  

My DH sees the Lyme doctor for treatment on Tuesday. It is no fun when one person is dealing with this, but we both have it.

Keep the faith....although there may be ups and downs, Lyme is handled better now than it once was.
Lyme literate doctors didn't exist decades ago....I had little options but to try anything and everything
I could...many things I tried on my own...What worked and what didn't work is now becoming a blur.
I just know that it often feels hopeless when I've proven to myself that there's a light at the end of the
tunnel.

I've approached this nasty condition from every angle possible....spiritually, emotionally, physically.
I've had reiki, hands on healing, massages, chiropractic, homeopathic, osteopathic, conventional
medicine........I've meditated for hours at a time...I've prayed, cried, given up,
come back from the dark side and fought harder....I've dealt with insane fatigue, intense depression and crazy anxiety....all kinds of nervous system problems.  And all I can say after so much struggling is that I'm very much improved.  Many days I feel very well.

I wish you guys the very best of health.  I know you'll finally "get there".

Kim,
I'm seeing a traditional/holistic doctor who is treating me for chronic lyme and don't know when it started.  Part of my brain is finding it hard to believe that I have chronic lyme.  What symptoms did you see in your history that helped you see signs off it 10 years ago?
I think my adrenal/immune was off to a poor start as a child, had hayfever from age 3, and I'm told the adrenals still need help. My white blood cells and platelets dropped below the minimum about 8 years ago and it's been a struggle getting them above the minimum but did so this year.Liver enzymes not outside the range but moved up to high end, and tend to go up and down.

Thanks C-Sharp,
I thought from some of the comments that some updates to Swami had already been released.
Also, thanks for clarifying what the comment "We are editing...." on the profile..", is about.
thanks,

I know you are joking, but I'm sure they can hear us...  
I also know from the Eng. perspective that it usually doesn't help the developer(s) to have marketing or sales standing around watching or "pressuring" to get the product out...  We are all anxious to get the update, but want the developers to be comfortable that it is working properly - BEFORE release.  Nothing worse than a mad scramble to fix an oversight.

I changed a lot of things.. reflecting my new health factors..

I now have 2 super fruits.. Elderberries and Guava..

I have no idea where to get elderberries.. but guava I think I can buy in the supermarket..

the rest of the fruits are now Beneficials.. including pineapple.. interesting


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!

Elderberries= Arkansas they grow on the side of the road.  Look for in wines make a great dark red wine.   I make a ticture for flu season. Makes a great jelly but that has to much sugar for us. Main ingredent in Proberry 3.  Can get Elderberry juice concentrate from Wylderwood cellars (got mine at the Post Winery here in Ark. (be warned $25 for 12.5fl. oz) If you pick your own only use the berries.

I'm so glad you asked that. I'd forgotten all about have that bottle of concentrate. Think I'll see how it does the my salad dressing instead of the wild cherry concentrate.  Elderberries are strong so I would think the one small bottle will go a long ways.

A 'Hunter' working on a relaxing into farm life.

Location: Green Acres Farm, Fielding, Utah
Age: 43
So there is an up coming update? I hope it is before I move and lose my interent for a month.
though one thing I figured out is that I can only be a hunter or gatherer. No explorer. Though I am bit confused because the book put me in as a gatherer and then swami being a bit deeper look into account health and my finnish lapp ancestry. Confusing because the first two months on the gatherer I droped ten pounds. Now due to thyroid I am up 20 lbs. So I don't know what to think.

I am gluten-free, corn-free, white potato-free, low carb, low sugar, limited yeast. Have diagnosed hypothyroidism now. Taking T3 5 mcg and T4 50 mcg daily, along with 5000 iu D3 which I am starting to alternate with 10,000 iu D3 for the winter and 1000 iu B12 both subliguals.

Does anyone have those menus that they had for the first online premium program for a hunter? I love to have to use as a guide? Menu planning is not my forte.
