Hi Serenity,
I don't know where you are located, but Jason Malia practices in Sydney. Check out his website here

Hope this helps.

Quoted from Serenity
Adam, swami changes me from warrior to teacher, I must be a close tie between the two.  I tried the warrior supps for two years, i don't think they did a lot for me personally, I am about to order the teacher pack to see how that goes.  
I don't have an issue with weight just my digestion is still not right I really can't go a whole week without fish which makes the teacher diet seem right to me.  Someone suggested explorer for me but i am very sinewy & definately an ectomorph but I have a longer head/jaw like a warrior, so I am a little confused right now, I wish we had professional swami practitioners here in Australia as I really think I am not getting my measurements right!


I know I'm not Warrior.  Every time I go on the Warrior diet, I lose weight way too quickly and the food choices just don't "feel" right.  The digestion issues are the main key, I think, to determining Teacher vs. Warrior.  But, who knows?  A trip to Connecticut would really solve it, I suppose, but who has money for that these days?  I guess some people do, but not me.  I don't really trust seeing a local practitioner, I'd want to visit the main clinic.  Hope you get it all figured out.  It's not easy sometimes.

Adam,
I agree with what Chloe said.
One answer changes My swami from teacher to explorer...
Your Swami srengths/passes are so close to mine...but I am not lactose intolerant and am ISFJ.
I also believe in getting nutrients from food first, but as Ruthie said, how good is the soil? So, a few main supplements will only help.
As a fellow A I can testify that deflect is heaven sent for the A gut. I don't know about the deflect for the other types but I won't be without ours. I don't use it daily...but am sure glad i have it.
I haven't felt the need to try the teacher pack (especially since I identify with explorer in so many ways) but the basic A pack has been in my system for about 3 years now. *
Note* I only take one capsule of each daily...not the recommended 2-4.

Currently taking the following supplements for various reasons:

Methyl B12 - first thing in the morning with my green tea, mainly for a burst of energy in the gym (1/day)

Teacher 3 Pack - because it's the highest rated in my SWAMI (2/day)

Deflect - because it is such a great supplement in its own right, I could tell improvement in my joints after the first day (4-6/day)

Protein Powder - when I don't want to cook a meal, or am hungry between meals on heavy workout days

Harmonia Deluxe - 2 teaspoons in the protein drink, I like this stuff a lot

CLA - on heavy workout days to help build muscle and burn fat

Tranquility Base/Cortiguard - occasionally when I'm stressed

I also have Ashwagandha (NOW brand) which is good stuff, helps me relax and get to sleep.
