As many of you already know, I found out through testing done by Dr. Nash and Dr. Partovi that I am toxic in both lead and mercury.  Further recent tests confirm both the lead and mercury and adds tin along with moderate levels of antimony, arsenic and cadmium.  There is some mention in the report of  the stuff in gasoline, Methyl tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE) as well.

The funny thing is, I don't seem to be sensitive to things like chemicals or fragrances, although I don't like really strong perfume or after shave.  I did not check environmental sensitivities but I am beginning to think that since I am toxic in so many chemicals, it might be a good idea to check them.  My sense is that this might push me over to an Explorer, which might be a better diet for me until I get rid of all these environmental toxins.

Hopefully I will have the funds fairly soon to send all this testing to Dr. Nash and have her incorporate it into my SWAMI Pro, but for now I do have a SWAMI Xpress and am wondering if I should check off environmental sensitivites.  Dr. Nash was positive I would type as an Explorer because of my Mg antigen and the radial loop on my left index finger.

Would the high levels of toxicity I have of lead and mercury along with the other metals be a good reason to check off environmental sensitivities?

I do not consider a toxic load to be the same as a sensitivity.

Few people do well with elevated levels of lead and mercury.

I just tried changing it on my SWAMI Pro and it still lists me as a Hunter, which is surprising to me.  I noticed there is a way to emphasise methylation.  I clicked that and got a LOT more cheese.  Is cheese good for methylation?

if you are sensitive to perfume and other stuff i would check the box. it's bound to help i think.

but i would let swami decide the best method normally although perhaps because of your toxic status that be okay.

I presume you are referring to this setting:

Geno Harmonic Food Clusters:

This setting should not change the rating of foods.

It should only affect which foods are included in the Geno Harmonic section of the report.

Thanks, PC.  I did check it on my home version and it actually gave me a lot more food, especially cheeses, which I find interesting . . . not sure why it gives me more cheeses . . .

I would love to know what is the official guideline in SWAMI Express of determining environmental sensitivities also

I asked DPN some other questions by email and have had no response, I even resent the email in November  

These were some of my other Q's:

Could you please confirm - does the carabelli cusp need be only on the 1st molar - and are any on other molars not relevant?

How do you determine caffeine sensitivity??

What ethnicity am I? I am Australian born, my grandparents were also, I have no other information available except we are caucasian... As you know Australia has a mixed history!

Is there any further support for using the extended selection in SWAMI called Geno Harmonic food clusters?

The swami kit I received in 2009 had a piece of blank paper about 24cm x 5cm - is this the prop strip??

(Patty my apologies if you think I should put these in another thread - please let me know - instead of starting new threads if it is okay to jump in here?)

C Sharp, I changed that and that I had environmental sensitivities and that was when I got a lot more cheeses.  I could go back and do one thing at a time to see if you think that is helpful.  I think I also changed that I had issues with constipation, which was a problem growing up but is not a problem now unless I travel without my magnesium supplements

That is probably for finger printing. The prop strips are in a little booklet (About the size and shape of a match book).

I am not sure what you mean here.

Selecting extended selection gets you about 30 items in a cluster instead of around 15.

If a cluster does not expand there were probably not good items to be added to the cluster.

Whether it keeps you up at night.

Much prior discussion of topic.

Just search the site.

See page 78 of the GenoType book.

We are concerned about the presence or absence of an extra cusp on the first molar.

I am after the instructions for selecting the options provided - I understand using the 'compute best' option, but it would be interesting to understand all the available options too.

Prop strips are not supplied with SWAMI Xpress.

They are part of the GenoTyping kit.

guideline in SWAMI Express of determining environmental sensitivities


This means does body tend to over-react to environment stimuli.

When exposed to chemicals, mold, dust ...
does your body respond with an auto-immune reaction, headaches, hives, congestion, allergic reactions ...

I am not sure which address you used, but there is a special one for SWAMI issues.

Probably the most convenient way to get help on SWAMI is to click on the help tab within SWAMI and ask questions in an online chat session (during business hours).

The general DPN address is for buying products and they may have seen that it was not a question about ordering supplements.

I do not think DPN is set up to answer general questions about the books, diet, ...

You were supposed to get thirty strips in the GenoTyping kit.

If they got left out of your kit, phone DNP and ask them to send you a booklet of PROP strips.

I just noted you were in Australia.

If you ordered the GenoTyping kit from the New Zealand distributor,
I gave you the wrong contact info.

This is your local distributor:

Information on butyric acid:

http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2009/12/butyric-acid-ancient-controller-of.html


Concentration of butyric acid does vary significantly in cheeses. Some varieties have a lower concentration of butyric acid than milk or ice cream.

Thank you, Lola and C Sharp.  Dr. Nash has prescribed Intrinsa in the past.  I am so many other supplements right now to support the amalgam removal that I could not possible add another, but I will add this when all of the amalgam has been removed!
