For my disease processes on my Swami Questions, I have listed i'm overweight and I have joint and gut problems. And Swami is telling me I'm 45% Hunter.
- What does being a 45% Hunter mean? What else am I ? (ha ha.. that reads funny!)
- I can never have tomatoes but tomato juice is a neutral ?
- Currently carrots and celery are black dots but the juice of each is a neutral ?
- I read in the somewhere that I should drink Stinging Nettle Root Tea for my joints (I can't remember where now), and I read in the Arthritis Health Series Book that I should drink Dandelion Tea (Beneficial); but neither of these teas are listed in my Beverage Swami list???
I think the only harm ghee could be doing is providing more calories than you need. It is good to assist gut health....and I eat much more ghee than the 3 tsp per week recommended! I got on a bad road with enjoying ghee before Swami as before it was unlimited and now I just can't imagine life with only 3 tsp per week! :-/ Does anyone think that this Ghee is hurting my arthritis, inflammation or gut recovery?
I may have more questions but for now what REALLY intrigues me is that I can have tomato juice!!!! Maybe that means I can make tomato sauce using the juice for an occasional pasta dish? Anyone ever done this?
Quoted from Lolaenjoy your swami guidelines! :)
Quoted from ABJoe
It should be OK to add the Dandelion tea to your diet. I'd wait on the other until I found the source again...
ABJoe... I found the source - The Encyclopedia -
Stinging Nettle Leaf - Group O - Allergy Control, Blood-Building, Sinus Health
So I guess that would help with Arthritis inflammation?

Quoted from Victoria
Maybe you already are aware of this, but, there are some good rice pastas available, in case wheat is one of those foods you plan to avoid. (Wheat can be hard on arthritic joints)
Also, you could probably make a wonderful rice pasta dish with pesto. Depending on what is on your food list, pesto is easy to make and that way you could put in it what you want to be eating. I love rice pasta with pesto!!! :D
Quoted from ABJoe
The rest of your characteristics don't fit within the Hunter profile. They are what makes you unique from other Hunters.
Can I get a more in-depth answer? Like what's the other 55% of me? or does it matter? it seems to be counted fully as a Hunter I'd need to be over 50%... so this confuses me a bit.
what is in Tomato Paste? is it free of seeds and skin? I mean my food list does not say I can't have tomato paste.. and if I can have tomato juice then maybe....
Quoted from VictoriaI would not assume that tomato juice and tomato paste are rated the same, no more than almond milk and almond butter or olives and olive oil, or cheese and milk. Different components, even though the same item may be the source of both examples.
