This is a SWAMI-- not the book version
Thoughts on this would be appreciated. thanks
MY 5 CENTS. :)
"I'm following the Explorer Genotype diet recommendations more and more, and it is making much sense within a broader picture.
eg. Apparently explorers respond very well to the sulphur in egg yolk. I just found this out a moment ago from the report (below) having had wonderful detox results from taking MSM (/Sulphur) crystals twice daily for the past couple of months, as it happens.
FANTASTIC. THERE IS A SNP WITH CBS THAT SOME WITH METHYLATION ISSUES HAVE TO BE CAREFUL OF. NOT EVERYONE HAS THIS, BUT JUST A WARNING THAT YOU CAN START GOING TOO FAST AND THIS CAN COME INTO PLAY. I WAS EATING A TON OF SULFUR AND GLUTATHIONE FOODS AND DUMPED MORE THAN MY BODY COULD HANDLE. JUST A HEADS UP IN CASE THINGS GET OFF TRACK AS IT WAS QUITE PUZZLING AND I AM MEETING MORE PEOPLE ONLINE WITH THIS. I AM SO GRATEFUL I SERENDIPITOUSLY FOUND THE ANSWER VERY QUICKLY, OTHERS HAVE STRUGGLED FOR A LONG TIME AND GOTTEN QUITE ILL. BUT FANTASTIC THAT IS WORKING. FANTASTIC.
I have a burning question with which I hoped you could help:
I would like to take a grass-fed raw whey protein powder (actually this one http://wheynaturalusa.com/index.html) for its many benefits, but the Explorer food list (original report attached below) has whey protein down as Avoid. Does this also apply to such high quality as 'grass-fed' and 'raw', with all lactose removed and no casein? The reason I ask is that the preamble to the dairy section is somewhat confusing, touting the benefits of whey, but then putting it in the Avoid section...
I THINK THE PREAMBLES ARE PRESET FOR THE GENOTYPES AND DON'T REFLECT INDIVIDUALITY. IS IT A BLACK DOT? THEN MAYBE A WASHOUT PERIOD. THAT IS THE TYPE OF WHEY POWDER I WOULD USE (DID NOT LOOK AT BRAND) IF I WOULD DO IT. I DID USE IT WHEN I WAS VERY LOW ON GLUTATHIONE PRIOR TO GETTING MY SWAMI. THERE IS AN INTERACTION BETWEEN MERCURY AND DAIRY. SEARCH MERCURY DAIRY GLUTEN ON A SEARCH ENGINE AND YOU SHOULD FIND IT, SO IF YOU HAVE A HEAVY BURDEN, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WOULD COME INTO PLAY. WORTH READING THOUGH. I HAVE WONDERED IF THE BLACK DOT ON MY SWAMI WAS TO AVOID DETOXING TOO FAST. THERE IS A SAYING SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT THAT THE MORE TOXIC THE PERSON, THE SLOWER YOU WANT TO GO. THERE ARE OTHER FOODS THAT CONTAIN GLUTATHIONE THAT CAN GIVE YOU THE PRECURSORS TO MAKE IT. http://drhyman.com/blog/2010/05/12/what-is-glutathione-and-how-do-i-get-more-of-it/
(Should such high-quality whey turn out not be recommended for an Explorer, is there another relatively inexpensive way within my genotype that you might suggest I consume grass-fed/un-denatured animal protein? Grass-fed beef jerky springs to mind maybe, but try finding that!)
IF YOU ARE JUST LOOKING FOR ANIMAL PROTEIN, YOU MIGHT JUST WANT TO STICK WITH MEAT AND EGGS, ESP IF IT'S NOT A BLACK DOT. ADZUKI BEANS ARE A NICE INEXPENSIVE COMPLEMENT IN A PROTEIN AND THE BAG I HAD BOUGHT MOST RECENTLY WERE HIGH ON MOLYBDENUM. MOLYBDENUM IS A KEY TRACE ELEMENT THAT IS REALLY LACKING IN OUR SOIL AND WILL HELP WITH DETOX/HANDLING METALS. THE BLOOD TYPE PROTEIN POWDERS ARE NICE AND THERE ARE A PLETHORA OF VEGAN POWDERS LATELY. I FOUND A SPROUTED FERMENTED RICE ONE THE OTHER DAY THAT'S JUST RICE. VERY NICE.
I would be most grateful for clarification as I've been on the case of whey all day and my head is spinning..."
SORRY IF YOUR HEAD IS SPINNING MORE AFTER THIS. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE INDIVIDUALITY. THE REASON MAY ALSO MAY BE A RATING BASED ON YOUR BLOOD TYPE... [url]http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?450 [/url] BEST WISHES.
Quoted from SquarePegI would reply that it depends on how the whey was concentrated. I think Explorers need to avoid all kinds of "isolates," which I think would preclude whey protein powders.
I probably read this in another book, such as the "Science of Skinny" or the Excitotoxins book.Quoted from RedLilac
Why avoid isolates? I must have missed that recommendation somewhere because my morning shake consist of Dr D’s B/AB Protein Powder, Now Protein Isolate, and etc. ??)
