The older bug thread has been folded into a new thread were I analyze the problem and you can track the progress of the fix.

Please use this thread to report new bugs as they show up.

It would be great if the bug report could be as succinct as possible, and contain any specifics that can help me track down the problem, such as GenoType, Blood Type, etc.

SWAMI is a huge program, with an enormous amount of data. Anytime you unveil a new software platform you will not discover problems until a certain number of people, under different environments use the product. Microsoft and Apple have hundreds of programmers and just ponder how often they want to 'update' their software.

I've moved posts on this thread about problems that have been fixed over to the moderator area, so as to not confuse people.

If the problem has not been fixed, it's still here.

If you've posted a problem and it has not been fixed to your satisfaction, please let me know.

Geno Harmonic Food Lists - Broad Genotrophic

Regarding the Geno-Harmonic foods listed on the right side of the page, for the categories:

Fish/Seafood
Red Meats
Fruits
Spices

These lists seem to be incomplete compared to the other lists, stopping with foods such as Kale or Molasses, with no foods listed for the rest of the alphabet.  Most of the lists end with foods from T - Z.  

I could be wrong and maybe these are just short lists.

My SWAMI lists serving sizes for nuts/seeds and nut butters, but not for beans, which are in the same category.  In Live Right, the serving size for beans is 1 Cup dried (which seems like a huge amount of beans for one serving, to me).  Does anyone know what the correct serving size is, or should I just consider it to be the same as nuts/seeds?  And would it be dried or cooked?

It's not specifically listed in the GTD book, either.

I have been using 1/2 cup dry, let's see if we can get Dr. D to 'fix' it....

There is no serving size listed for 'beans' or it is not clear.
Posted by: LauraT, Thursday, July 30, 2009, 11:51pm; Reply: 9
In LRFYT, I was confused by this, too.  A cup of dry beans has like 88 grams of carbs and 500 calories!  But since I'm only supposed to eat them 3 times a week, I just decided I would have 1/2 cup dry (1 cup cooked) 6 times a week.

With the Explorer, I've decided the serving is 1/2 cup dry, since I still have to have my nuts and would miss the beans too much if I was only eating them once or twice a week.  They're an ideal source of carbs for me.

are you eating 1/2 dried beans which you cook and than eat   or

1/2 cup cooked beans    or

maybe 1/2 cup of dried beans ground and made into something

Not sure if this is a bug, but I was just re-reading over my swami results.  I came out an explorer, but it says my epigenetic worldview is "receptor type"...is this because of my specific info, or is it incorrect?  I know in the book, explorer is "inflammation based".  Thanks in advance..... ;)

No, it is indeed possible to be a 'Receptor Explorer' though the combination is not common in type O.

Minor typo in Red Meats. It reads "Beef, Calf" instead of what I think was supposed to be "Beef, Calf Liver" since Veal is already listed as "Veal".

Sorry, me again.

Live Foods has:

"Lettuce, Green Leaf, Iceberg" and "Lettuce, Romaine"

To this gardener/chef lettuces come in many, many, many varieties, but only really 4 types/families: Butterhead, Looseleaf, Crisphead, and Romaine/Cos. Green Leaf is just that - a variety of Looseleaf lettuce. Iceberg however is a different type - it's a variety of Crisphead lettuce.

Because you listed Romaine separately I would think you intended Green Leaf & Iceberg types & varities to also have separate listings...however, you have it listed the same way in the GTD book (pg 278 ), too, so I'm not sure if it's me being confused by how you're categorizing the types & varieties or a typo in both the book & program.

Guess who!

Possible issue is: Combined items
Where found: Beverages
Listing: "Green Tea (Kukicha, Bancha)"

I tried to double check myself before adding this to the bug list using the GTD book and my grocery. The results were:

Kukicha is in the book as a specific beverage item for GT2, GT3, and GT4  (pgs 216,232, 248 ). However, Kukicha & Bancha are listed almost the exact same way as in my SWAMI (above) for GT1, GT5 & GT6: "Tea, green, kukicha, bancha" (pgs 201,265,281).

They are sold in my local stores as two different medicinal tea products, even when marketed by the same vendor. Since they are being classified as medicinal, I thought it best to bring it to your attention in case it's not just a case of tea that's good (or bad) for you in a general sort of way.

Bottome line: Are these typos in SWAMI & the book or did you mean to combine them to infer that both items were the same rating?

Thanks!

It would be helpful if serving sizes under vegetable proteins could be clarified.  It seems like a half cup of sesame seeds wouldn't be equivalent to a half cup of green beans, or even other cooked beans.

bancha is the lower part of green tea

and kukicha is a type of green tea.....
think they re pretty much the same, and thus listed together....
Posted by: Chanur, Saturday, August 8, 2009, 4:33am; Reply: 22
Yes, I understand that Bancha is a type of green tea and that Kukicha is a twig tea from the same plant as green tea comes from, but I still don't understand why they would be sold and listed differently if they are the same.

Perhaps if you tried explaining to me again. Sorry if I'm being dense.

Ordinarily, you are able to do this.

At the moment, the software is not finishing the generation of the diet report. You see the title page and it gets no further. Even if you wait considerable time (this is the same issue as I reported above).

When it is working it will generate the full report, which you can view on screen or print.  

You will also be given the option to generate a pdf output file that you can store on your machine and view or print this file whenever you want.


A side comment that I should not really make in a bug report thread-but since I am writing a reply about the bug, I will include the comment as well.

When the software is working you can generate the report specifying secretor, non-secretor, and unknown and compare the three results.

It is strongly recommended that people determine their secretor status to get the most accurate results when using SWAMI.

Everything seems to be working for me now.

I will try to think about what could be different today.

I thought BCGal and Mrs T O+ had the same issue.

If others did not have the same problem. I would be inclined to blame it on my Internet connection.

My connection was slow at the time I looked into BCGals comments.  It may be that it was so slow that it timed out the connections on long documents.

At the time I was having problems, I did try downloading the swami user manual. This is a 7MB pdf and I had no problems downloading it (it was not instantaneous--probably about 20 to 30 seconds).

I am not sure why my connection was slow.  I was going out on a 6 Mbps (shared) connection. There should have been no students to compete with.

Many thanks Dr. D, even though now.....

I am following the SWAMI Explorer now.  My husband remeasured my fingers and tells me that on my right hand he actually measures my index finger to be oh-so-slightly longer than my right finger.  Also he looked at my fingerprints which are really hard to read (having very low ridges) and said that what I though was a tented arch is a radial loop on my left index finger.  After inputting this data, I came up Explorer.  I have followed it for 10 days now and feeling really good, more sustained energy, down some water weight.

I have noticed typos in the Explorer plan and will post them when I have a chance to go through it more closely.

Yay!!!!!! I was able to read my results & lots of dots became neutrals as I kind of thought!
I didn't see any percentages, but it did say I was Reactive, which is a Hunter & Explorer trait, even tho I am a Gatherer. I always thought & was more of a hybrid. Maybe I'm still a Gatherer, but since the other 2 are reactive, I can still be Reactive & a Gatherer!
Avocados are a complete avoid now :( , but I seemed to have gained quite a few things. Being of Mediteranean lineage, I thought I would get more olive oil than 3 teaspoons a week! I'm sure that was a typo, meaning tablespoons, but that's still too little! I also eat a lot more meat than recommended. I'm glad beef became a superfood again rahter than a neutral, as it is more avaiable here.
I didn't print it all off. The printer printed my input info, but I didn't get it to do the rest(results) & didn't try too hard!  I'm happy for the changes.
Tell me about the percentage. Also, I have pretty boring fingerprints, but would like to know more about how that figures in as well as the other measurements.
Thanks again!  I'm lovin' it!!!!!

     My oil recommendation is 1 teaspoon 3 servings weekly.  Should it be 1 tablespoon 3 servings weekly or 1 teaspoon 3 servings daily? Either way, it seems too little.   I'm a reactor gatherer type.

     Also in the mushroom category, Portobello mushrooms are a superfood and crimini are black dot.  Its my understanding that crimini are baby Portobello.  Is this an error or does the nutritional value change as it matures?

      A lot of my Genoharmonic foods are rated neutral.  Does combining this way make them superfoods?

       "You have chosen G2 Gatherer as your Genotype,  overiding the computed GenoType (GT4 Explorer)"  My measurements definitely put me in the Gatherer category, so I don't understand this. ??)

The nutritional values of an organism sometimes change with maturity.

The SWAMI prefers to treat you as a GT4 based on some of your input data. If you change the input to allow the program to select your GT it will choose GT4 for you based on the inputs you gave. SWAMI will sometimes override the measurements based on other factors, much as Dr D would do in his clinic.

SWAMI Xpress is a sophisticated computer software system written by Dr. Peter D'Adamo. Dr. D'Adamo is a world-renowned expert in nutrition and genomics and he wrote the SWAMI Xpress software to harness the power of computers and artificial intelligence, using their tremendous precision and speed to help tailor unique one-of-a kind diets to individuals, based on their blood types, fingerprints, medical history, biometric measurements and over ninety other variables.

Flaxseed oil Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation and help prevent certain chronic diseases such as heart disease and arthritis. These essential fatty acids appear to be particularly important for cognitive and behavioral function as well as normal growth and development. Lignans, such as those found in flaxseed oil, appear to help modulate excess growth fators levels later in life (which may help enhance longevity) and encourage apotosis (programmed cell death) in cells damaged by aging or mutation


fators = factors
apotosis -- I thought it was apoptosis. Spell checker does not like either one.

•     ECGC Green Tea: The ends of human chromosomes are protected from the degradation associated with cell division by long end sections called telomeres. In normal cells telomeres lose up to 300 base pairs of DNA per cell division that ultimately leads to senescence; however, most cancer cells bypass this lifespan restriction through the expression of an enzyme that helps repair the telomeres (telomerase). Unfortunately many cancer cells express excess telemorase as part of their quest for immortality. ECGC Green Tea helps regulate telemorase activity, in addition to helping remethylate the sections of genes that demethylate with aging.


I think this should be telomerase

Warrior diet report-spell check

I am omitting items that are the same as teacher.


Quoted from Vegetable proteins:
GT5 Warrior plant proteins are known to be high in lignans and phytosterols. Lignans have been shown to increase steroid efficiency and have antioxidant activities. They also have anti-carcinogenic, anti-atherogenic and anti-diabetic activities. Phytosterols have cholesterol and immune modulating activity. Other antioxidants, such as the isoflavones are significant epigenetic factors, having powerful silencing and activating effects on genes. Soy is an especially good food for GT5 Warrior; it is rich in isoflavone antioxidants, which help maintain the integrity of the Mu genotype DNA. It also has other unique anticancer components as well. You may read negative things about soy, but if you are a Warior, it’s a good food.


Warior = Warrior


Quoted from Fats and Oils:
GT5 Warriors should be judicious in the choice of oils and fats their best choices include high lignan, high sterol containing monounsaturate or mixed monounsaturate-polyunsaturate fats which have an ability to temper their 'thrifty' genes and enhance halthy artery function


Spell check thinks monounsaturate should be "monounsaturated"
halthy = healthy

Quoted from live foods

As it says in the Talmud 'Woe to the body that does not see vegetables.' Live foods maximize insulin efficiency (their more complex sugars take longer longer to metabolize) and provide essential fiber (roughage) to allow the natural cleansing mechanisms of the body to do their job of removing waste and cellular debris. Live foods are your greatest insurance policy against devloping virtually all the common cancers, and slowing or reversing the aging process.


I have omitted most things already noted under teachers, but I included this passage even though it was in teachers.

only one longer needed. Missing e in devloping.

Quoted from Fruit
GT5 Warrior fruits maximize insulin efficiency as they take loner to metabolize than those with higher amounts of simple sugars.


loner= longer

Quoted from Spices
Spices are the original medicines. Many are rich in anti-microbial essential oils, whilst others are great sources of anti-oxidants, immune enhancing phytochemicals and fat burning thermogenic compounds. Try to work you recommneded spices into your diet on a regular basis.


recommneded = recommended

Quoted from Warrior Exercise Guide
The Warrior exercise protocol is designed to increase muscle growth, develop and strengthen the cardiovascular system and offset the Warrior’s tendency to rapid aging. Warrior GenoTypes do best with stretching and lengthening exercises that also have a resistance component to them. Try to exercise for 30-40 minutes at least five days per week. Be sure to do warm-up stretching for five minutes before you begin, and cool down with stretching for five minutes after you’ve finished. Depending on you current level of physical conditioning, choose from the following list of exercises:

The best physical evidence of this rather ruthless culling of the male population over the years is the relatively high degree of genetic 'sameness' seen in the y-chromosome (male descended line) ancestral DNA haplogroups of western men: One single haplogroup (R1b) pedominates.


pedominates = predominates

Quoted Text
Warriors are in common distribution in Africans, both New World and Old World and not unfrequent in New World Hispanic populations. The GenoType is uncommon in Asians, but rates appear to be climbing, as the nutritional value of the average Asian diet improves.


unfrequent = infrequent (change may not be necessary)

Quoted from Physical Profile
Young Warrior has rather high growth factor activity levels (however, not as high as the Hunter) which can give them the long leg lines often seen with the GenoType, and which can go along way to mask the gradual slowdown in metabolism


along = a long

Quoted from Gatherer Synergist
o     Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) CLA reduces fat and preserves muscle tissue. According to the research project manager, an average reduction of six pounds of body fat was found in the group that took CLA, compared to a placebo group. CLA has been shown to decrease abdominal fat and lowers insulin resistance. CLA also enhances the immune system -- many studies have shown that CLA seems to possess sginificant cancer preventive effects.


sginificant  = significant

Although GT4 Explorer was not what SWAMI Xpress would have calculated as your exact GenoType, here are the your findings which are often seen in this GenoType.


Either "the" or "your", but not both.

Quoted from Further Customization (2)
Receptor types typically tend to experience less inflammation and auto-immune problems, but may develop more immune succeptibilites and malignancies.


succeptibilites = susceptibilities
or rephrase to something like "but may be more susceptible to develop immune problems and malignancies"

Quoted from Eggs and Roes
The high concentration of sulfur containing amnio acids in eggs have marvelous detoxification effects in GT4 Explorers, which make them an excellent first-choice protein source.


amnio = amino

Quoted from Carbohydrates
A reactive GenoType, in general GT4 Explorers need to be wary about their use of carbohydrates. In in general they do well with low lectin, low gluten carbohydrate choices.

At the same time, the Teacher supplements are recommended, which contain ginseng. I guess that is an automatic--that if I type out as a Teacher, all the Teacher supplements will come up as recommended, even if an avoid is in them.

I just noticed something which might be a bug. When I run SWAMI without ticking any of the boxes in the "Your Health History" category, both spelt and kamut are avoids. When I tick the allergy box and re-run SWAMI, spelt is suddenly a black dot avoid. When I also tick the skin and bowel disease boxes, spelt is suddenly neutral and kamut a black dot avoid. Spelt and kamut seem to get less problematic the more diseases I have. That can't be right, no?

I was playing around with these settings because I wanted see what my diet would look like if I hadn't had any diseases and to my astonishment it was more restrictive than before.

There is an upper limit on the number of food de-emphasis/ emphasis operations. This is more evident in the SWAMI GenoType version (where the user actually can tweak these, versus Xpress where it is done automatically) since if you go much beyond five or six elements (potassium, lectins, gluten, overgrowth) you wind up marching the food value one way, only to later march it back the other (producing in essence no real change)

and his list was pretty much the same for both Secretor and Non Secretor...

Irish moss contains vitamins A, C, D, E and K, vitamins B1 and B2 and is a source of B12. Irish moss contains many elements essential to the human body. Irish moss contains a high content of iodine, calcium, manganese, zinc, bromine, iron and protein and contains significant amounts of calcium and magnesium."

Here's what I need to understand....The above quote says that carrageenan comes from Irish Moss yet carrageenan is an avoid on my SWAMI.

I don't understand.  ::)

And here http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?ID=1403

Irish moss is being called carrageenan.

I ll placed your question in the swami report thread
Posted by: Eric, Saturday, September 12, 2009, 11:27pm; Reply: 113
I have a question.  I just ran somebody's SWAMI (B+ Nomad) and SWAMI chose BTD values, other than the GTD values (or even a hybridized version).  Do you know why it would do this?  She has 10 whorls and a family history of cancer, but no other problems.  

Also, there are no black dots!  That surprised me... none of the avoids have black dots, and there are only diamonds in the seafood category.  Is that a bug, or just how it's supposed to be?  Thanks

SYMPTOM

You are getting crazy or inconsistent results.

PROBLEM

Possible data entry errors. Some things to keep in mind:

    * Using non decimal numbers. SWAMI can only accepted decimal numbers. Never use '27 1/2' as a substitute for '27.5' since it will yield bizarre results.
    * Finger length values not in millimeters.
    * Inadvertent data entry mistake. In some browsers, pull-done menus can be altered by subtle movements of your mouse or scroll ball that you are unaware of. Always do a quick double-check of your data intake form before running the diet report.

Hmm... everything checks out OK Lola.  My only guess was that since it chose BTD values it doesn't show black dots- which is a GenoType Diet thing.  ?

This is kind of odd...

Today I opened SWAMI and changed my jaw from "Almond" to "Square". Without looking at or changing any other fields, I printed the report.

When it came up, my genotype had been changed from Warrior to Teacher.

If I hadn't noticed the paragraph that says "you chose this specific genotype" as opposed to "you allowed SWAMI to calculate your genotype for you", I might have switched from Warrior to Teacher erroneously.

When I realized the report said that I had chosen that genotype, I went back and changed the field to "calculate my genotype for me", and I was switched back to Warrior.

I'll take a look at that. The meal-planner is really an add-on bonus which has not has the time yet for fine tuning. Of course the Diet Report is the final arbiter.

I think it should be "white"

...Insure that salmon purchased is not "farm raised" by rather "wild caught".

Vegetable Protein

at the end of the second last sentence:

...a protein missing one or more of these are an "incomplete protein."

is instead of are
"incomplete protein". (the dot after " instead of before " )

Fruits
First sentence

The best fruits for each are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and fiber.

Geno Type missing between each and are?

3rd sentence:
... which may them especially important nutrients ...

make instead of may

Last sentence seems too long without pauses:

What is especially great about the wide choices of fruits is how well they can substitute for carbohydrate cravings in the early stages of the program that can
result from the severe grain restrictions.

Maybe a comma after fruits, and  program,  ??

I *think* the classification name was changed in order to be more specific, as the white common mushroom and several of the other types Cristina posted in the wikipedia quote most definitely have different ratings.  'Commercial' never really refered to a specific type of mushroom which is probably why it was changed.  If you look in the typebase, that 'commercial' identifier no longer is used.

Champingnon is the french word for mushroom as far as I know.

Reading through my SWAMI, just discovered that the Alternate Nostril Breathing instructions are, shall we say, interesting:  

Close the right nostril with your right thumb and take a deep, long inhale through your left nostril.

Now close the left nostril with your right ring finger and little finger, and at the same time remove your thumb from the right
nostril, and take a deep long exhale through the left nostril.

Do this five times.

Now reverse it.

Close the left nostril with your left thumb and take a deep, long inhale through your right nostril.

Now close the right nostril with your left ring finger and little finger, and at the same time remove your thumb from the left
nostril, and take a deep long exhale through the right nostril.

This is one round. Start by doing three rounds, adding one per week until you are doing seven rounds.

I've done alternate nostril breathing before, so it doesn't really matter to me, but it's kind of hard to exhale through a nostril you are holding closed.  ;)

I went from the BTD (for diabetes), directly to SWAMI. Given my blood type, I noticed a major food avoid difference from BTD to SWAMI.

In the BTD for Diabetes, condiments section, there is a long list of avoids, most of which are in my Swami. However, there is one glowing difference, and this is maltodextrin which is listed in the BTD avoid, but there is no mention about this in my Swami printout at all; which therefore makes it a neutral ???

If it is an avoid, I think it should be listed as so. I can envision someone, without any prior BTD / GTD exposure, purchasing Swami directly so they have the benefit of a complete personalized nutritional guidance. Yet, they would have no knowledge currently about maltodextrin as an avoid.

In Spanish shopping lists there is a problem with printing special characters (accents, tildes, ...).

The special characters display correctly in lower case words. The uppercasing function is causing codes to be displayed instead of interpreted.

I get the same hieroglyphics right here on the Spanish forum!
for this particular reason, I ve decided to avoid spell checking, when writting in Spanish.....

maybe eliminating accents all together might be a way to deal with this issue?

great you brought it up Kent! :)

On the Swami Xpress diet report it has provided different values for the below two live foods, which if I am not mistaken could be considered synonyms.

Chinese Kale, Kai-lan appears in the Superfoods as a â—Š, while Broccoli, Chinese appears in the Neutrals.

Could you please clarify if they should be considered as synonyms or not?

This has been asked many times in many threads.

I suggest that you read some of those threads. The short answer is it is safest to treat all forms of cream the same as half n' half.

I have not read this entire thread so I don't know if this has already been posted, sorry if I repeat.

Under "Fats and Oils" my swami x tells me:

GT3 Teacher choices stress short chain fatty acids, medium chain saturated fats and high lignan oils; all of which have a
regenerating effect on the lining of the digestive tract. Ghee is a clarified butter which has had its solids removed is a
source of several short chain fatty acids, including butyric acid. Butyric acid has been associated with enhanced genetic
fidelity due to its effects on the enzyme histone deacetylase.


Which is all good and fine, BUT, Ghee is listed under "Dairy"

Ghee used to be under Fats and Oils too at some stage, hence the reference.  That got fixed, but the working has obviously been overlooked.  Not sure if this has been picked up before, honestly first time I noticed it (that I remember). Good pick up!  ;D

broccoli is not kale. kale is a type of cabage and while they are the same veggi family they are as differnt as roses from dogwood trees.

That maybe so, but all over the internet Chinese Kale and Chinese broccoli are one and the same  ;D

Might or might not be a bug...

Lima bean flour is listed as a neutral on my SWAMI

Lima beans are listed as a toxin.  (not a black dot)
Posted by: Lola, Tuesday, June 15, 2010, 4:37pm; Reply: 195
if not a bug, things to consider when swami was run according to you
Epigenotoxin (Anti-Metabolomic: Intracellular Toxin/Ubiquitylation Disruption)
Epigenotoxin (Nitrilosides Phenolics)
Serotoxin (serum flocculating glycoprotein)

those might be some factors being taken into consideration by the system when computing your report.....
the flour however, might not present those issues

A minor typo in the Explorer Swami Xpress:


Developing Specific Meal Plans


As a SWAMI Xpress client, you have special access to unique meal planning software, which allows you to develop a weekly meal plan directly from the results of your diet report. You can even print out the recipes to use during the week and generate an ingredient shopping list!

My SWAMI report has quite a few more glaring grammatical errors.  Do you really want me to post them?

Some other things I noticed on my Explorer SWAMI Xpress:

1.  Pomegranite Juice (sp) appears on the Beverage Page
     Pomegranate Juice (sp) appears on the Fruit Page

2.  Quinoa is in the explanation paragraph on the Vegetable Protein Paragraph under the Frequency and Portions but does not appear as an item on that list.  It is actually listed as an item on the Carbohydrate page.

3.  Not sure on this one, but I think Umeboshi Plum, Vinegar should read:  Vinegar, Umeboshi Plum.

4.  Condiments page:  explanation paragraph under Frequency and Portions should read:  GT4 Explorers since they tend to not metabolize them efficiently;

Hope this helps,

Tea Rose
