Are you ready to take full responsibility for your health and what goes into your body? Are you ready to take the stratospheric leap from mediocre health or poor health to one of ideal, abundant and radiant health?
If you’re ready to take this extraordinary leap, then what I have to offer you are the most comprehensive and sophisticated nutritional consulting services available TO YOU, from a distance, anywhere in the world.
How is this any different from virtually every other nutritional approach exists? In order to answer this question, let’s look at the 2 predominant models of healthcare today:
Disease and Symptom Specific Healthcare and Functional, Patient-Specific Healthcare
The predominant model of healthcare is Disease and Symptom Specific. This model of healthcare revolves around symptom-based treatments without identifying and correcting the underlying issues of a person’s health. Such a model of healthcare will only yield, at best, temporary fixes to your problems. And the disease-specific model doesn’t involve preventative healthcare at all.
To show the significance of this, consider that your presenting symptoms have appeared only after a long disease pattern has been in place. Suddenly you may get very ill and your health may collapse. But in reality, there has a been a long, progressive pattern of external and internal stresses that have gone on sub-clincally, below the surface for a long period of time. A person’s health doesn’t suddenly JUST collapse all at once for no reason. And so what does this person do? He or she goes to the doctor.
In a very common scenario, the doctor who is trained in this disease-specific system, comes in for a 10 minute visit with the patient, declares that there is nothing wrong with patient and all the person needs is to take some drugs for anxiety.
Does being prescribed and taking pharmaceutical drugs for the rest of your life have anything to do with health? And what about the other harmful, costly and often unnecessary medical practices and procedures? The more that one looks at the conventional model of healthcare, the more one realizes that this model of healthcare isn’t based on health at all. And in most cases, there is virtually no discussion of disease prevention.
So what does this confused, ill and frustrated patient then do? They turn to alternative healthcare. How is alternative healthcare any different than conventional healthcare? With the exception that some alternative healthcare uses more natural treatments than drugs, surgery and chemicals, most alternative healthcare is also disease and symptom specific too: “here take this herb for your headache.” Or…”I’ve heard that taking THIS supplement is good for THIS symptom.
In both the conventional model, and the alternative model of healthcare, the approach is pretty much the same thing: treat the person at the surface level of the symptoms, rather than addressing the deeper underlying factors.
A patient-specific model of healthcare is a totally different paradigm altogether, one that aims to go much deeper than surface level approaches. In a functional, patient specific model of healthcare, a person’s highly individual nutritional and biochemical needs takes precedent over the level of the symptoms.
In my system of functional, patient-specific healthcare that I call Metabolic Healing, the individualized approach that I use is a synthesis of some of the most important discoveries that have made regarding human health and human metabolism. These discoveries, made by some of the most important 20th and 21st century researchers and clinicians all point to the key principle of Biochemical Individuality, the urgent need to address each person’s health in a highly individualized manner, one that is based upon their unique genetic, metabolic and nutritional requirements.
There are 3 primary steps to Metabolic Healing: Individualized Diet and Nutrition, Functional Laboratory Testing and Re-testing and re-evaluation when necessary.
- Individualized Diet and Nutrition. This is the foundation because no two people have exactly the same nutritional requirements, and in fact one person’s food is another person’s poison. Having used Metabolic Typing with more than 1000 people, I have literally witnessed how a high carb, low fat, low protein type of diet is medicine for one person and this same diet perpetuates the disease process for other people. We are all biochemically unique and metabolically individual. There is a dire need for individualized diet, and nutrition and Metabolic Typing is the best foundation to begin with.
- Functional laboratory testing can be a powerful tool to use when identifying the best direction for a person. Functional lab tests such as food intolerance tests, gut function tests, hair tissue mineral analysis and saliva hormone tests can yield a tremendous amount of important data, all of which is used to improve upon the function of various organs, glands and systems of the body.
- Re-testing and follow-up re-evaluations are essential in order to monitor a person’s progress and improvements in their health.
Unlike other models of healthcare, the goal of Metabolic Healing is not to make you a client for life. Quite the contrary, I believe it is essential for you as my client to become pro-active and empowered to take control of your own health, so that you are armed with knowledge and experiential understanding and insight of your own body and how it functions. In this way, you become nutritionally equipped and fully responsible and independent for your health and what goes into your body and what does not.
