I have been out of the loop and because of teh weiht gain and digestive issues, I am back.

I am B+. According to my swami I'm 52% explorer and the rest nomad.

but I have to redo it cuz some things have changed, have changes in my medical history, etc.

so having hard time sticking to what I need to do. dealing with cravings and so much stuff making me feel sick.

ideas and suggestions would be lovely

any ideas? i'm a bit resistent when it comes to green tea

my swami says that explorers don't respond well to drugs.

I am super sensitive to drugs and usually feel the effects right away. you can usually tell when It starts wearing off.

what about you other exploreres?

do I use those for my blood type? it won't matter by genotype? also, if juice is involved - chances are I can't drink it.

I was curious if anyone else has mismatched body types with their genotypes?

I have the type of body that, skinny or chubby has an inclination to being soft but I do have big bones and muscles

am I mismatched with being an explorer?

Tazo Zen is available all over the internet.  You need to search for "tazo zen green tea" and look at the links to evaluate price/shipping for the quantity you want.

I agree with Lola...  SWAMI determines the perfect diet for you based on all of your input data.  The Genotype label really doesn't mean anything once you have your printout - as it shows the information that will help you do what is best for your body - or at least the body represented by the input provided...

Do what you can within your SWAMI output, although I have used avoids for short periods of time to assist healing of specific ailments...   I use Dr. D.'s supplements Hepatiguard and Detoxical-D to help with liver support now...

in my swami I can't really change my lactose status.

and honestly dairy, I can only tolerate cheeses in small amounts. I'm not lactose interolerant per say, but really sensitive to it. so I was wanting to change it to lactose intolerant.

any ideas on how to get it done?

Brenna,

I would not assume that because you're 52% Explorer that the rest of you is Nomad. B's can be Gatherer also and judging by the fact that you're having weight issues at your age, you probably do have some Gatherer characteristics. Many of us are fairly even mixtures of 3 genotypes (AB's can be 4).

You were asking if others are mismatched body types, and just earlier today I replied to a current post about type A's and celiac/dairy intolerances that thoroughly described just that exact thing. I don't want to post nearly the same thing twice in one day so you are welcome to read it on the other thread.

By the way, I have a type B- son who appears to have a strong association with the Explorer genotype (I used the advanced calculator from the book, not SWAMI for him). He has the "slow acetylation" characteristic that many Explorers have (including myself) and has insomnia problems if he has caffeine late in the day or chocolates/food containing preservatives. So much makes sense now as he had so many sleep issues and chronic irritability due to lack of sleep in his earlier years when I was not aware of the harmful effects of the diet I was feeding him. Also, when he was 12 he had a serious arm break that required immediate surgery the same day. The break occurred in the morning at school and by mid-afternoon we found after examination of x-rays that he would need surgery the same evening. He had eaten a light lunch around noon and we were told not to feed him any more before surgery, which ended up being later in the evening. The doctors used a conscious sedation drug (can't remember what it was called) and the surgery was over and done with within a matter of minutes. We expected to be checking out relatively quickly, but he was SO dizzy and sick to his stomach he didn't end up getting discharged until about 2 A.M. I was thankful that in the days after returning home we did not feel it necessary to give him narcotic drugs that were prescribed for him to use at home and we were able to manage the pain with normal doses of ibuprofen for a few days until the worst pain subsided.

okay, so knowing I might have some gatherer characteristics, where do I go from there? what things can I incorporate from gatherers into my lifestyle to help out?

I reviewed the genoytype types, and reallly I'm a combo of explorer, nomad and gatherer.

just not quite sre how to mix and match for that. but anyways.

If you have a SWAMI, it takes care of the "mixing and matching". No worries! Rely less on the label of your genotype (everyone is a combination of more than one) and rely more on the food lists, to help you get to the place you want to be.

The folks at NAP (North American Pharmaceutical) are very helpful. Perhaps a call to them (or e-mail) would help you?

yes, the swami food list gives me an awesome guide - my stomach can do the rest  

like almonds are beneficial for me but I am INCREDIBLY allergic to them. they will make my throat close up and have a hard time breathing. so the answer is NO to that one lol

but it most definitely helps me. it makes sense of why certain foods are like drugs to me and not nourishing foods.

thanx so much.

I am a B+SWAMI Explorer/Nomad.  Also very sensitive to drugs, allergic to - of all things - ibuprofens!  Am following the SWAMI superfoods and am eating more now than in many years and have lost weight and it seems to be staying off..35lbs gone.  What a relief, I thought it was going up and up!  I am at the weight of 8 years ago.  I got SWAMI 2 months ago, before was following the BTD but weight loss had stopped.  Started again after SWAMI but seems to have remained steady in spite of Thanksgiving dinner, and dessert!
I have done the liver cleanse and like it, tho no 'green  blobs' thank goodness, I just felt better.  (Am fighting multiple sclerosis just with Diet as I'm on NO drugs.)
