This is a section of my SWAMI I never paid much attention to, but since I've lately been really dedicating myself to 100% compliance, I decided to take a closer look.  My main interest was to see if there were things I should combine so that I can feel even healthier.  It seems with this really cold winter, I'm just not feeling as well as in past winters.  Many of you can probably relate, as we are all feeling the hit of this crazy cold weather.  

So, what did I find?  Well, what surprised me was that I found that I was already combining many of the foods already.  Food combinations really ought to make sense, and it looked like I was doing some things right.  But, frankly some of these Geno Harmonic combinations are rather crazy and I would never combine them (Chocolate Herring, anyone?).

Here's some combinations that I was already doing:

Chocolate with Flaxseed Bread ... I often add powdered cocoa to my flaxseed bread.  It's great!  I have a piece of it for breakfast with my morning coffee to which I also sometimes add some chocolate.

Flax Seeds with Red Wine ... I also make flax crackers, and many times I'll have the crackers with a bean dip, guacamole, or salmon, and then have a glass of red wine as well.  Feel like a million bucks afterwards.

Miso with Kai-Lan (they call it Gai-Lan here, it's an Asian green) ... I put these together in my miso soup, it's awesome.  I also sometimes use Yu Choi, another Asian green.

Rice Flour, Brown with Flaxseed Bread ... I often add brown rice flour to either my flax bread or flax cracker recipe.  They go well together, the rice flour makes the crackers really crispy if you roll them out really thin.

Sesame Oil with Kai-Lan ... I add sesame oil to my miso soup, so there's 3 ingredients in my soup that are geno harmonic.

Soybean, Tofu with Red Wine ... I'll add tofu to my miso soup and have a glass of red wine, so now I'm having 5 things together that are Geno Harmonic... Miso, Kai-Lan, Sesame Oil, Tofu, and Red Wine.

I have been sensing lately that the best thing that I eat for me these days (especially during this cold cold winter) is my miso soup.  What amazes me is... now that I've taken a closer look at the Geno Harmonic Foods section of my SWAMI, it appears that I naturally put together foods (and a drink) that are ultra-beneficial for my health and well-being.  

Having my miso soup with a glass of red wine is a very complete meal for me.  It makes a perfect light evening meal, nice for floating off to sleep.  Soy is like medicine for us Warriors.  There's not that much in the way of calories to my miso soup, but I always feel full, and I always feel very peaceful afterwards.  I just sit in my chair afterwards and just zone out, it's great.  So, it looks like I've been doing something right all this time, as many of these foods are linked together in my Geno Harmonic Foods in my SWAMI.  

I encourage all the SWAMI owners to take a closer look at the Geno Harmonic Foods section if you haven't already.  I used to dismiss it, but now I think there is really something there, especially if the food combinations make sense.   And if you naturally want to combine certain Geno Harmonic Foods, then those are probably the foods your body needs.

Adam, it's so funny you're writing about this.  DH and I just got back from seeing Dr. D and the shift
at Bridgeport... Spent quite a bit of time talking to my shift supervisor about the genoharmonic combos.  How important they are....how little attention I've been giving them (although I do eat many
naturally).

Good post....great timing.  My husband is a Warrior....Am going to sit down and read his list later
and make him a little cheat sheet of his best GHs.

Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention.  I'll bet most of us forget about how much faster
we could reach our health goals if we focused on these simple food combos.

I also have red wine as a genoharmonic blend with many foods. I often have grilled tofu with a stack of steamed veggies like broccoli, bok choy & pumpkin, a splash of tamari & that is six foods.  Sometimes add cold green tea & blueberries in a smoothie with greens which is another blend.  Grilled snapper, a little ghee with a few crushed pecans on top & glass of red & thats another four i love to blend weekly!
When swami was set for targeting something else (i dont remember what) i had peccorino with pumpkin, zucchini, anchovies, parmesan and other foods that just seemed perfect.
But yeah, I am not into chocolate & herrings or sea-ears (what is that anyway!!? or turtle (who has ever eaten turtle?)

My Genoharmonic combo is tuned to eliminating AGEs.  What's yours set to?

One thing to beware of is that SWAMI doesn't tell you what combinations to avoid, such as grains and animal protein, for example.  It may be important if your digestion is weak.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Here's what mine says:

Enhancing Global Remethylation Effects

Adam, these Geno-Harmonic food relationships emphasize superbeneficial foods for your blood type and GenoType which contain nutrients that enhance gene methylation (which increases the fidelity of your gene's ability to make good quality copies of itself). Because the loss of gene fidelity is a major hallmark of aging cells, using these food combinations will produce maximum personalized anti-aging effects in your body. Loss of methyl groups over our lifespan is a precondition for a cell's ability to turn cancerous, so these Geno-Harmonic food combinations will also have anti-cancer effects in your body as well. You can learn more about these epigenetic functions by reading Chapter III GenoType Whys and Wherefores, pages 28-52 in The GenoType Diet.


It's funny reading about the anti-aging effect, because since going back on 100% compliance (with almost everything from the superfood column), when I look in the mirror, I'm seeing a much more vibrant and youthful person.  I was looking bloated and pale, now I'm seeing more color and shine to my face.

The anti-cancer thing is vastly important because that has affected my mom who is also a Warrior (who also introduced me to this way of eating).

Another funny thing is that last night at the Co-Op, I found these Portuguese sardines canned in olive oil.  I never eat sardines, but faintly remember them being in the Geno Harmonic Foods list somewhere.  So, I took them home, and was so hungry, I opened them up, splashed some lemon juice on them, sprinkled lots of my homemade curry powder on them, took a homemade flax cracker, and gobbled them up.  I cherished every bite.  I remember hating sardines when I was younger, but I recall reading that the ones from Portugal are a delicacy.  Yes they are!  So, I went "Hey!  Take a look at your Geno Harmonic Foods list!"  So, lo and behold, I see on the left side Flax Seeds and see on the right side to combine them with Sardines.  I did a little dance and went "Yahoo!  I knew it!"  I thought that was pretty cool.  And, indeed, I felt really great.  Enjoyed some red wine with it, too.  Dr. D sure does know his stuff.

Mine says the same thing as yours, Adam.  But,chocolate covered herring might make the herring edible.

My DH's (Warrior) SWAMI is focusing on dealing with AGEs.  His GH combos aren't very weird.  Tuna with
tomato...green tea with blueberries.  He was doing a lot of beneficial food combining even before he was following his SWAMI.

My oldest daughter gets such yummy combinations as "chocolate and pecans" in her genoharmonic  foods!

Most of mine are rather obscure- as in, they use foods that I can't easily obtain. Herring is a  GH combo with many different foods- but I can only find it with "avoid" additives so I don't ever buy it. Or it calls for fishes that I've never heard of- I don't even know if they're all kosher, and I certainly don't have a source for any of them. Goat and caribou are kosher meats, but I have yet to find kosher goat or caribou meat locally at any price.

That leaves me with butter, ghee, and green tea. Green tea is a GH combo with a number of juices, such as "lemon and water", pineapple, grapefruit, elderberry, and a few others. Every single day, I drink green tea with one or more of those juices added, though I do alternate which juice I use, and do sometimes use one that isn't a GH combo (such as lime.)

My list of GH  combos with butter and ghee are identical. It's a pretty long list of vegetables and a few fruits. I just noticed that kale is on that list, but spinach isn't, so I think I'll buy some frozen kale (instead of just frozen spinach) next time I'm shopping, and try to have kale in my "sauteed veggies and eggs in ghee".

I could combine the GH fruits in  the meal by having pineapple or grapefruit juice in my green tea, and drinking that with the sauteed veggies.

But I really do have limited GH options compared to others. I get my "butter and veggies" and I get my "meats and fishes that don't exist to  combine with veggies and fruits" and I get my "green tea with delicious juice."

If I had chocolate and herring as a GH combo, I might eat a square of dark chocolate or a cup of hot cocoa immediately following a meal containing herring (assuming I could find herring without added wine, vinegar, sugar, and/or cream.)

Ruthie, you're always practical.  ... I like to live dangerously, so,....I would melt good dark chocolate and dip a piece of herring in it....just to see if I could kill that herring flavor.  
Don't think I could sell this product in a gourmet food store!

(these  two foods are not my GH combos so there would be no benefit to me trying this experiment)  

I would get excited over your daughter's chocolate covered pecans....lucky girl....drooling!  

(chocolate for me is a black dot)....

Yeah, but, Chloe, as a Teacher you get all that yummy cheese, even though you probably aren't supposed to have too much.  The only dairy mentioned in my geno harmonic foods is Colby Cheese and Ghee.  Hmmm... Colby Cheese and Tofu is geno harmonic, now that sounds interesting, some tofu with colby cheese melted on top.  Pretty fattening, but sounds great.

Thanks for this thread Adam and the reminder about GH foods. I just checked mine and, like Ruthie, get some weird combos or foods I can't find like sturgeon, caribou, rapini - none of which I've come across in the UK.

There are, however, many common foods that I do have regularly, just not in combination. For example if I had a meal with lamb, butter/ghee, zucchini, bok choi, and cranberry juice I'd have a combo of 5 GH foods together. The same combo works subbing the lamb with haddock. I must give this a go!

Chloe, your chic-dipped herrings made me lol on my train home drawing intrigued stares from my fellow commuters.

Thanks again

Adam,

You've reminded me that i need to pay more attention to the geno-harmonic foods.  I can't always follow my swami the way i'd like because i can't always get the foods and portions sizes because of lack of finances.  Following my geno-harmonic foods could provide another way of fine tuning my diet without finance constraints.

BTW, do you have a recipe for the flaxseed crackers?.

Thanks!

Yes, they are here:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?1497

If you can have spelt, I'd suggest using some spelt flour, too, as it helps hold it together a little better.  I use the recipe as is, then use whole spelt flour on the surface as I roll it out.  I roll out just a small amount at a time so I can control the overall thickness a little better.  I like to roll them out really thin so I can get nice crispy crackers.  I spent the entire Saturday morning making enough crackers to have all week long.

Out of my entire list of genoharmonic foods there is only one combination I could use and that is lamb,bok choy and grapefruit.  Almost all of the foods listed are things I have no access to, have never heard of, or are things like monkfish which is so high in mercury that I won't even think of eating it even if I could get it - which I can't.

Rather discouraging.

Look at reply #2.....I'm thanking Adam for starting this thread in that post.   Doesn't seem to me like anything
is missing from this thread.  I remember I was the first person who replied yesterday after Adam started this thread.

Browsers do not always render pages correctly even when they receive all the content.

Web content is transferred across the internet and pieces of the page can get lost in transport.  

If the web server gets busy, it will supply some content and leave out other content until it gets caught up again.

This thread looks fine on the server. I see no evidence of this thread having become corrupted and being repaired.

I don't think we need to have the foods in our mouths at the same time. Herring followed by chocolate is the way to think about it. I frequently eat sardines for lunch, followed by a handful of blueberries. Lord knows a good palate cleansing is in order

I agree. Of course you realize I was goofing around.....that I would never in this lifetime consider dipping fish into chocolate.  Although I do remember living down south as a child and a kid I knew at school would bring a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with mayo.  Not that her mother knew a darn about GHs. My grandson likes Russian dressing on french fries. (two baddies for
a Teacher anyway). Gross to some, yummy to others.

Interesting, Chloe.  You might be borderline Warrior with respect to not tolerating dairy that well.  I have Manchego as a neutral (Colby is neutral for me too), and we had that discussion a while back about that lovely Manchego about how addicting it can be.

I did the Black Beans, Colby, Flax, Red Wine, and Blueberries genoharmonic combo last night with great success.  If I hadn't had fish at noon, I could have had Sardines in that combo, which I plan to do next time.  I'm really getting into this aspect of my SWAMI, it makes it really interesting and challenging.
