Quoted TextDr D
Problem is, the more specific you get, the more it becomes a 'medical device'.
Quoted from yvonnebWhile it considers my medical history (Do you have a history of bowel or digestive problems, Do you have a history of allergy or autoimmune problems) it does not cover 'are you having symptoms at present'.
Quoted TextI have been eating all the anti- inflammatory foods: tumeric, ginger, fish, flaxoil (omega 3), pumpkinseeds (omega 6), boswellia, probiotics, garlic & onions.
Quoted from Andrea AWsec
SWAMI does not substitute for medical care.
Dr. D just did a lecture at the store in Brooklyn on UC, IBS and Crohns-- specific supplements are needed in these cases.
Ultimately, you need to take responsibility for your own health. If that means going to a naturopath, then find the money and time for it. If that means trying to figure it out on your own, then you're the one in charge- don't blame "bad advice on the internet" if it doesn't work.
SWAMI guidelines are meant for when you're basically healthy
I wouldn't assume that beef and parmesean cheese are inflamatory in your body. They're diamonds for you- they might be healing for you, even though they're "inflamatory in general" on a non-BTD specific list.
I doubt you'll be able to heal fully without using some sort of supplements, although you may not need as many as Dr D reccomends in his protocols. The best thing to do is to see a practitioner who can evaluate you and help you fine-tune which supplements you truly need right now and which ones can wait.

Since SWAMI doesn't set its recommendations in stone, why not key in your acute condition JUST UNTIL your condition improves?
Feel better! :)
Quoted from paul clucas
Neither Swami Xpress by itself nor an un-informed practitioner alone is likely to be of much immediate help for you.
Quoted from Goldie
FORGET even a ND.. unless you are in serious discomfort.. ALL of those are not familiar with O's and BTD and Swami.. all they will give you is one size fits all.. that is really all they are allowed to talk about or they will jeopardize their licenses..
Quoted from Goldie
It's not only about anti inflammation, its about not needing to worry? Parmesan is NOT on my Swami. what kind of parm? sprinkle dried or fresh grated from Italy or what other factory? It matters after you think about it all.
Quoted from yvonneb
I am in medical care as well, but it doesn't incorporate the bloodtype connection- hence I got myself SWAMI. There are no bloodtype naturopathic docs in Ireland...

May want to contact Prannie Rhatigan
Quoted TextSWAMI needs an 'actual & urgent' section
The last few posts are not a bad idea for A's lets say, but I wonder about the places where these things are grown. Will the soil be good enough, mineral rich enough, or will transportation time of such foods be short enough so that food value is still inside for those types of food eating ideas.Quoted TextDo you know seignalet diet ????
Quoted from marieb2421The treatment regime Seignalet logic of many diseases is the return to an ancestral type of diet, similar to that practiced by prehistoric man.
Hypotoxic regime, ancestral or original are the words used by Dr. John Seignalet qualify for its nutrition.
1) Remove any animal milk (cow, goat, sheep) and their derivatives: butter, cheese, cream, yogurt, ice.
2) Exclusion of mutated grains (wheat, corn, rye, barley, oats) and consumption of cereal non-mutated (rice, buckwheat, sesame).
3) Eat products either raw or cooked to a temperature below 110 ° C.
4) Exclusion of oil extracted in hot and / or cooked in favor of virgin olive oil consumed raw.
5) Consume salt and sugar and have a complete course preference for organic foods that contain less toxic products like pesticides,
6) Finally supplementation with vitamins and minerals in balanced proportions in physiological doses, is recommended to see with your doctor.
This diet is based on a qualitative rather than quantitative choice. This is change their diet rather than trying to substitute one product for another. See why our "Eat That" and our recipes
