We purchased Swami took a few days to put in some of the basic measurements.

We just finished with the body segment length comparisons and the dermatoglyphics.  The first time we looked at her prints with the Genotype Book, I thought she had 8 whorls.  Making her a Teacher.  Now, looking under bright fluorescent lights, there is definitely only one whorl. Ran the Swami Report and Bam!  Type A positive, secretor, Explorer 44%!

Hindsight being twenty-twenty, I think to myself, "Of course, broad bone structure, can't drink coffee after 3pm, and idiosyncratic health issues."  She has the same body shape as my maternal grandmother, until our second baby left a lasting figure issue.   :(

"I'm very healthy.  I never get sick!"

"Yes dear."  She responds to indoor/outdoor temperature changes (esp. in winter) with hives/rosacea.  Stop/start energy issues; as in "I have to have my mid day nap."  She will clean like a maniac and then crash.   ::)

After the nap she will do an Oscar (the-grouch) impersonation worthy of an Oscar.  She has to feed her coffee addiction in order to turn her mood around.  This is balancing two bad habits off against each other.  (shrug)

Now I know that her stubbornness, like mine, is genetically programmed.  I can make allowances for it and give up any false hope that she will change (beyond mellowing a little).  This sceptic is ready to be surprised by good health.   :o   :)

:D  (sunny)(smarty)(clap)(pray)

Good for both of you! I hope she will get off coffee or just have a little in the morning...just till she can quit.

My husband and I are both Explorers - he's O , I'm A.

The similarity in our foods is way convenient.  

Good for you both!

Paul ;D... stubborness can be treated by insightfullness ;)... and perhaps can we relate merely to learned patterns up from youth called conditioneerings... but what was learned can be given up and changed by other mental beliefs...so far the book named *biology of beliefs* might be helpful from Bruce Lipton... :o :D ;D....

Oh, how fortunate that you both end up being the same.  It makes it so much easier to keep the wrong foods out of the house, IF she will just direct her willfullness (much better than stubbornness) towards not eating the no-nos.  Best of luck to you both!

Is She an "A" Explorer, SquarePeg?

Three - O is male, A is female explorer pairs?  This is a little unusual.

Is not like there are single people saying "Hi, I am a Hunter.  What genotype are you?"

This does change how I think of my children's diet.  My son is an A, but I know that bananas do a real number on his digestion.  Well, we will have no bananas in the house now.

It would be funny if my slender daughter, who wants to eat like a vegetarian, is an A Explorer as well.

DW is ruminating on the necessary shopping habit changes.  I am watching that she does not sabotage herself, going for the unpleasant beneficials.  She is exploring the idea.  Hopefully this means that she has moved beyond her instinctive distrust.  If she will only listen to her experience of eating, instead of her family, there is a chance she will improve her health.
(pray)

Yes, it says so in my signature, so that's why I didn't write it in the post.  We think our daughter is an A Explorer, too, but she's only 11 and may change.

I relate to your wife completely.  I think I'm a carbon copy because it sounds like you are describing me.

I can relate to your wife's experiences.  I am real worried about my moods without coffee.  Having a real hard time giving it up.  Anybody know how long it takes being off the stuff before you start having beneficial affects, rather than feeling worse physically and emotionally?

Actually, from the moment you stop drinking it...even if you don't realize it at the time. ;);)
