Metabolic Typing

Metabolic Typing is the scientific methodology for customized nutrition and is based on the fact that there is no universally healthy diet that is right for all people. Anyone can use Metabolic Typing to find out exactly which foods are good for their health, and those that are not. Metabolic Typing also identifies nutritional supplements that will make you as healthy as you can be and will keep you from wasting your money on those that would make you tired and sick.

Through computer analysis, Metabolic Typing interprets and understands body language, which is the body’s means of communicating its physical, mental, emotional and behavioral characteristics, as well as its efficiency and homeostatic balance, through which individual, genetically-based nutritional requirements may be understood and applied.

Metabolic Typing is based on the understanding that although there are tens of thousands of biochemical reactions that take place in your body every day, they all fall under the control of only a few Fundamental Homeostatic Controls. Metabolic Typing recognizes 9 such control mechanisms and uses them to evaluate and determine each person’s Metabolic Type. It is the inherited various strengths and weaknesses in these control mechanisms that define our biochemical individuality and makes each of us unique. Importantly, every food and every nutrient has very specific effects on these Fundamental Controls. For this reason, not knowing one’s Metabolic Type makes it impossible to know which foods or nutrients are best for each person.

Metabolic Typing explains why it is that a given diet/nutritional therapy works for one patient, has little or no effect on another, and can actually worsen a third. Metabolic Typing explains why two people with the same disease require biochemically opposite approaches to get well. Metabolic Typing explains why it is that for every book that says one thing about nutrition, you can find another book that says the opposite. Metabolic Typing reveals why there will never be one diet that is right for everyone and why a given diet will cause one to lose weight, while another to gain weight. Metabolic Typing explains how someone can eat organic foods, take the best supplements money can buy, exercise regularly, sleep well, and still not feel well.

These answers and many, many more may be found through Metabolic Typing, based on 25 years of research in this exciting field of customized nutrition and the determination of individual metabolic requirements.

You May Need Metabolic Typing . . .

Metabolic Typing is the most exciting development in the field of nutrition in the last 100 years. Metabolic Typing changes everything and is revolutionizing the way we think about health and the practice of nutritional medicine. Here’s a brief introduction:

Perhaps you’ve reached the point where you think or even know that nutrition is important if you ever want to get well and stay well. It’s just common sense, right? But you’ve also come to find that the field of nutrition is quite baffling. And even though the information explosion has made more information available than ever before, it’s also made it even harder to find what’s really true and right for you or decide just what to do.

Has the information explosion brought confusion instead of clarity to your questions about nutrition? If you’re interested in nutrition and are looking for answers to a health problem or are simply looking for a way to stay healthy, your search may have led you to ask some of these questions . . .

Why is the Atkins Diet only a temporary solution?Why can’t I keep the weight off over the long term?

Why is it that my best friend’s nutritional supplements work absolute miracles, but make me feel lousy?

What is the right diet for me? — Atkins? Ornish? South Beach Diet? High protein diet? High carb diet?

Why does a low fat, low protein, high complex carbohydrate diet RAISE cholesterol in some people instead of lower it?

Why does taking a nutritional product help one person with a problem but not another?

How can one best selling book say one thing about nutrition, and the other best seller say just the opposite?

Why will a certain diet give my friend energy and help to lose weight but make me tired and GAIN weight?

Why can’t I get rid of my candida overgrowth problem, even though I’ve followed an “anti-candida” diet?

Why does The Zone diet make me gain weight and cause others to lose weight?

Why is it that I eat the best organic foods, buy the most expensive supplements, exercise ’till I’m blue in the face, get my 8 hours sleep, and still end up feeling like I can barely make it through the day?If you’ve been asking yourself questions like these, but haven’t been getting the answers you’re looking for, take the guesswork out of your search for health! Find out exactly what’s right for you! The answers you’ve been looking for may be found through Metabolic Typing, based on over 25 years of empirical research in the exciting field of metabolic typing and the determination of individual metabolic requirements.

Everywhere you look, there are contradictions. Your friend tells you one thing. You read about just the opposite in a health magazine. And a hot new best seller at your local book store says something quite different altogether.

And, maybe you’ve learned from your own experience that what works for one person, doesn’t help a second and can actually make a third person worse! How can there be so much confusion and contradiction about something that is supposed to be so good for you?

The reason is that 90% of the people talking about nutrition know just enough to be dangerous. They know that nutrition can be the answer, but they don’t know how to use it properly. And, yes, it is a two-edged sword:

If you use it properly, it can help make you well. But, if you use it improperly, it can help make you sick or keep you that way.

The wrong way to think about nutrition is that one diet is right for everyone!

The wrong way to use nutrition is the same way that you use a drug!!

You know. Take this nutrient for that condition. A magic bullet. One standard nutritional remedy for each problem that is supposed to work for everyone.

But, your own experience and all the contradictory books and articles that you’ve ever read — aside from making the field of nutrition confusing, frustrating and sometimes downright baffling — have already shown you that this approach doesn’t work. And your common sense agrees. You know that you are unique! You know one shoe size doesn’t fit all. You know that everyone is as unique as their fingerprints. So, why would anyone ever think that one diet is right for everyone? Or, that what works nutritionally for one person would work for another as well?

The fact is, you really can eat the best organic foods, exercise regularly, drink plenty of fluids, get sufficient rest, take the finest supplements that money can buy . . . and still not feel well, or even start feeling worse than before!

So, what is the answer?
