Hi all,

Some food puzzles me as to why they are avoids:

1. Soy - I understand that it can mess up O women's hormones / periods? How about for non secretor, Explorers?
2. Vanilla
3. Almonds and Walnuts - I'm bummed that the only nut I can eat now is the Chinese chestnut... the others are out for me.

And these beneficials:

1. Seltzer water
2. Peppermint Tea

Can someone shed light on these food? Much thanks!

I am in between Explorer & Gatherer & seem to do better avoiding all nuts at present... Certainly, even if I don't react, I do not lose weight when I consume them

Lola, I did run the SWAMI report and I have listed these avoids from it.

Dianne, in that case, there must be some criteria I have selected that exclude almonds, walnuts from my "can eat" list.

Yeah just that I wonder why it would be good for me. Quite ironic since I don't have a taste for carbonated water. But hey in the spirit of being adventurous, I am chugging down one now!

Same goes for peppermint tea.

I think you listed a health issue that causes the changes.. The clearest I would think is either liver or gallbladder, the one is aggrevated by the other and the foods would stimulate those issues.. take out all issues and add one at a time then just look at the 'nuts' to see when it changes since most O' s can have nuts..

Soy and vanilla are avoids for all O's I think.. so there is no need to experiment with them..

I use neutrals and avoids as the occasional cheat, in that way I can have some things but need to be careful about the amount.  Like one sliver of cake is not going to kill me, but a slice will create reactions.  when I do that I am fully aware of the price I pay.

Another way I test something is this way:  I eat one avoid to its max for a day and then see over night how stuffy I am.. Test completed since my body reacts INSTANTLY..  

This might take on hour to do but then you know the answers created by your BODY and your knowledge about it.  I would love to know what moves the nuts.......................


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!

Soy and vanilla are avoids for O non-secretors on BTD, so many O nonnies don't get to eat them on SWAMI either.

Peppermint tea tends to be good for digestion. Seltzer decreases stomach acid- something that's very good for Os with lots of stomach acid, but bad for A's who already have too little stomach acid.

I have seltzer as a diamond, but I don't really like it so I don't drink it much. I don't really like "buying water", carbonated or otherwise,  and lugging it home from the store, but tea leaves are much lighter to carry! Peppermint tea is neutral, so I have it once in a while, but it's not a staple.

Thanks Goldie and ruthiegirl for your tips and answers to what makes these food avoids/beneficials!

I may want to try the "stuff myself to max" thing for soy. It's such an integral part of the Chinese diet and I found it very hard to take it out.

Too frequently I find that the diet, BTD or SWAMI, feels restrictive in what I can have. While I have good memories of trying new food that is good for me, I have removed so much avoid food from my diet that it has become pretty restrictive and I feel miserable on it. A good number of the beneficials and neutrals are not available here. Used to do a 80% beneficials and 20% neutrals with very few avoids but I've scaled up my neutrals and allowed in some avoids though not the major ones like wheat, corn and diary.

seltzer helps balance our high IAP levels.....it is soothing to our digestive tract and gut......as opposed to As

which of Dr D s books have you already read?

I suggest you read ERFYT and then LRFYT, just for educational purposes....
glad you are now following your swami......great move!

Hey Lola, I have all 3 books and have been starting up on reading them. Hence my lack of knowledge on the food lists.

I was told by my naturopath to follow the O BTD a year ago to treat my eczema and candida, and it was only when I have read about SWAMI and Genotype on the forums then I have decided to go up to SWAMI. Although my naturopath thinks that the BTD is easier to follow.

Hey Lola, nope I am not.

Who is the Master IFIH and BTD restaurant you are refering to in Singapore? For the shop, I guess you are refering to My Type.

Don't know who Caline is.

That's good! Peppermint tea, even though it tastes yummy, is actually a medical tea (yes, digestion and colic) and should not be taken long term!

PS: Vanilla is a SWAMI neutral for me, just checked, but then... I am a secretor
