Hi there what does this mean exactily. my SWAMI said this but I appologize, I do not inderstnad what it is trying to explain....thanks in advance for any break down...

SWAMI Xpress has identified several additional dietary factors which it has integrated into your program:

Diet Emphasis: Synthesis of GTD and BTD Food Values

SWAMI Xpress has chosen to build your diet plan around a synthesis of The GenoType Diet and Blood Type Diet food values.

Emphasized and Deemphasized Nutrients

SWAMI Xpress has chosen to further tailor the diet to your unique needs by emphasizing and deemphasizing food containing certain key nutrients. These include:

Foods considered high in these ingredients received Moderate Deemphasis
Gluten, Gliandin or Prolamine
Foods rich in these ingredients received Strong Emphasis
Butyric Acid
Good Elimination Food
Folic acid
Omega 3 to Omega 6 Ratio Good
Quercetin
Inhibits bacterial overgrowth

It's all about you.

In the process of blending the BTD and GTD to fit you, the program is also:

Reducing the amount of gluten you would otherwise get in the blend.

Increasing butyrate, folic acid, Omega 3 to 6 ratio, quercitin and elimination foods beyond what you would otherwise get in the blend.

Also, using more food that inhibits bacterial overgrowth.

Those individual adjustments are based on your personal input such as health history as well as indications from physical measurments. They will change a bit as your input (health history) gets modified.

The first part just means that swami chose to create your diet plan based on a combination of the BTD and the GTD (it sort of mashed the 2 together in a way that will most benefit you).

The other part shows that, based on your input information, swami chose to choose foods for you that are good sources of:

Butyric Acid
Good Elimination Food
Folic acid
Omega 3 to Omega 6 Ratio Good
Quercetin
Inhibits bacterial overgrowth

because those nutrients/factors will benefit you.  And it chose to limit foods that are good sources of:

Gluten, Gliandin or Prolamine

because those nutrients could be problematic for you.

hope that helps!

Thank you both....OK so I do have celiac but it has rye, barley ect as super foods...they are gluten containing? also  what is butyric acid? is that being increased or decreased in my diet? and I marked off thyroid problmes and it still added lots of goidorin(sp) foods...so I am confussed my GTD as an explorer is way closer to foods that I notice effect me than my swami report why do  you think this is? should I maybe stick with just the explore plan for now?

SWAMI has increased butyric acid.

It is a fatty acid found in ghee, butter, parmesan cheese, ...

The anti-fungal and anti-tumor effects of butyric acid, a short chain fatty acid, are unique. Butyric acid is an energy source for the cells lining the colon, where it plays a part in development and maintenance. It reduces chronic inflammation of the colon, and high fecal levels correlate with decreased colon cancer risk. In people with compromised immune systems, undifferentiated cell growth can be inhibited by butyric acid.

If you have celiac, do not eat foods with gluten even if SWAMI says they are okay.

goitrogenic foods lose their thyroid-inhibiting property if they are cooked (or at least it's minimized) so I don't think it would be a problem as long as you don't eat them raw.  If you marked thyroid when filling out swami then it should have been taken into account.  Perhaps the benefits of those foods outweigh the goitrogenic effect?

butyric acid is supposed to be very healing to the intestines.
