Just re did my SWAMI after many years, so excited it makes so much sense. Question though, I have Celiac so all the gluten foods it is allowing me are out, I am surprised in todays time there was no spot to put at least gluten intolerance, it did ask me for autoimmune issues but nothing gluten specific. Also I have had a food intolerance test done that showed I was reacting to some foods my SWAMI showed as beneficial what are the thoughts on that? Still eat them or avoid? So excited to give this a go!!

C sharp might be able to help with it-- is there a genetic switch she can hit?

Still think we need a sticky for SWAMI questions.

Genetic switches for SNPs are only available in SWAMI GenoType (What Lola referred to as Pro above) and are not in SWAMI Xpress.

Unrelated to the genetic switches in SWAMI GenoType, that product has settings that allow a practitioner to reduce or eliminate gluten from a clients' diet recommendations.

Some features from SWAMI GenoType are to be included in SWAMI XP2 when it is released. I have not heard anything specificly related to gluten.

Lisa - I just have to avoid the foods I know cause me problems, even if Swami says I can have them, such as gluten.

Lisa, I've been eating gluten-free very successfully for several years.  I just don't eat anything with gluten in it.  There is plenty to choose from in your SWAMI to just leave out what you don't want to eat.

Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I'm setting up my swami and because I have a strong intolerance to whey, I thought that if I said yes to lactose intolerance, that would take into consideration my whey intolerance.  I am not lactose intolerant nor am I intolerant to casein (I've been tested).  Most milk products contain the whey protein so it should work (or not)?
Not many have a problem with just whey and I guess that's why the question isn't in SWAMI.   But I think many have an intolerance to the milk proteins casein and whey but not the milk sugar (lactose).  Do you think that I should say yes to lactose intolerance?  Thanks for any advise.

Saying yes to lactose intolerance will not eliminate dairy products, but it will reduce them.

I would run it both ways and note the differences.

My Swami Xpress fields for Lactose Intolerance (and caffeine sensitivity) are "Time Locked Fields" - in order to get them unlocked (temporarily) you would, I believe, have to contact HQ...

I've been wondering this too.  I don't know for sure that I am lactose intolerant, but my tummy has never been good with milk so about a year ago I switched to lactose free milk, and I seem ok with that - providing I don't have too much.  So, on my SWAMI I ticked lactose intolerant but I don't know for definite.  Can you get tested for lactose or is a case of elimination?

cat2 - here is some info on lactose intolerance tests


Tests and diagnosis
By Mayo Clinic staff
Your doctor may suspect lactose intolerance based on your symptoms and your response to reducing the amount of dairy foods in your diet. Your doctor can confirm the diagnosis by conducting one or more of the following tests:

Lactose tolerance test. The lactose tolerance test gauges your body's reaction to a liquid that contains high levels of lactose. Two hours after drinking the liquid, you'll undergo blood tests to measure the amount of glucose in your bloodstream. If your glucose level doesn't rise, it means your body isn't properly digesting and absorbing the lactose-filled drink.

Hydrogen breath test. This test also requires you to drink a liquid that contains high levels of lactose. Then your doctor measures the amount of hydrogen in your breath at regular intervals. Normally, very little hydrogen is detectable. However, if your body doesn't digest the lactose, it will ferment in the colon, releasing hydrogen and other gases, which are absorbed by your intestines and eventually exhaled. Larger than normal amounts of exhaled hydrogen measured during a breath test indicate that you aren't fully digesting and absorbing lactose.
Stool acidity test. For infants and children who can't undergo other tests, a stool acidity test may be used. The fermenting of undigested lactose creates lactic acid and other acids that can be detected in a stool sample.

C-sharp -  thanks, yes I think in my case, saying yes to Lactose Intolerance would be a good idea.   I wish there were options for other intolerances like gluten and whey and casein.

There are more options in SWAMI GenoType, but you have to see a professional to use the more complicated versions with hundreds more settings to configure.

I've filled in all of my calculations and I'm really pleased with the results.  They make sense to me and feel like they just fit.  I did ask tech support for a couple of changes on the time locked answers, (one that I had measured wrong and needed to change) and the other to change to lactose Intolerant.   They were very very helpful.  I did fingerprints and all of the tests in the kit.  Before I made a number of changes and corrections, SWAMI genotype showed me as a Gatherer.  I read the description and diet and I am nothing like a gatherer, don't fit at all.  After corrections I am a Hunter and super taster (that was fun).   I absolutely fit in the Hunter genotype.  I love my SWAMI and it was worth the expense and time to do it.  Can't wait to print out the cookbook.

Thank you for that jackpine, that's very informative.

Btw, I've just been reading your posts and glad you sorted your SWAMI.  When I followed the genotype tests I didn't feel like a Gatherer (which it set me as)  but the SWAMI over read that and  I came out as Hunter which ticks most of the boxes for me.  Good luck with yours!

What would be considered allergy under Swami input item 5 allergy or autoimmune problem?
I don't have autoimmune but used to take allergy medicine for season changes.

When it is not checked yogurt is beneficial and checked it changes to avoid.
And that is the only change made.
I wish to have yogurt.

sunnyside, I had the same thing with mangoes and peaches. when I had one option on my swami mangoes were black dot and peaches diamond. later I did a different option and they completely reversed   without knowing for sure (it was a minor item that I am unsure of to start with) I went with it. I love peaches but tire of them quickly. I love mangoes and am happy to eat them all the time so i am going to say I chose the right option. try it both ways for yourself. go ahead and eat yogurt for a while and pay special attention to how you feel after. even something as simple as mood or mucus output. if it makes no difference you can find it is probably ok. if you notice that something just dose not feel 'right' stop eating it.


nothing to do? who has that!?

There are only two products: SWAMI GenoType and SWAMI Xpress. Pro does not exist. Although some people use Pro to refer to the SWAMI GenoType.

Basically there are several hundred additional settings requiring entry.

Incorrect entries with these additional options will degrade the diet recommendations.

To avoid these problems, a consumer product was made that was "idiot proofed" to assure that people got decent diet recommendations.

SWAMI GenoType is available through practitioners that have received training so they know what they are doing when they make settings.

SWAMI GenoType is sold in unit of 10 or 30 patients. SWAMI Xpress is sold for a single user and does not require any training to use.
