Metabolic Typing london
What is Metabolic Typing and what can it do for me?
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. The Healthexcel System of 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 in The Healthexcel System of Metabolic Typing, based on 25 years of research in the exciting field of customized nutrition through Metabolic Typing and the determination of individual metabolic requirements.
Your two sessions will include 2 hours with me, one every four weeks for the assessment of your health history.
If I recommend clinical testing payment for the tests is made direct to the testing clinic. I suggest that clients see me once a month to begin with, but once some changes have been implemented and the benefits are being felt this may decrease to once every 2,3 even months.

eat right at xmas london

· Drink lots of water
You should drink ½ of your body weight (lbs) in ounces of water, plus 8 oz for every vice (coffee, for
example), and an additional 8 oz for every hour of exercise.
· Drink frequently
Your body needs four ounces of water every half hour just for basic functions. Your digestive
system can only absorb this amount under normal conditions, so drinking two quarts all at once won’t
help. Drinking less will thwart your body’s attempts to heal or regenerate. Eight ounces every hour is a
good guideline. Drink eight ounces of water every morning upon rising, eight ounces five more times
during the day, and eight ounces of water half an hour before both lunch and dinner.
· Drink bottled or filtered water
Avoid tap water and be wary of well water. Fluoride and chlorine found in tap water, and iron,
manganese, calcium and other minerals found in well water can be harmful. When using a
filter, make sure it eliminates heavy metals, chemicals, bacteria, and a good percent of all
minerals. Drinking water that is pure is much better than water that is impure.
· Avoid fluids with meals
Drinking fluids with meals can compromise your digestion. Sip warm fluids with meals if needed and
never ingest cold fluids, as they inhibit digestion. If you drink a glass of water twenty minutes before a
meal you will probably find that you won’t feel the need to drink during the meal.
· Avoid certain drinks
Coffee, black tea, pop, beer, liquor and wine all require that you drink additional water to
process them.
· Eat before you get hungry
Hunger is usually a sign that your blood sugar is dropping.
· Eat at the right time
Eat breakfast within one to two hours of rising, lunch approximately four hours later, and
dinner within six hours of lunch. If you have a day job, eat dinner before 7pm. Ironically, you
should not skip meals if you are trying to lose weight. Eating properly increases your
metabolism, which burns more calories.
· Eat snacks
If you tend to get hungry before or between meals, have a snack. A protein snack just before
bed can often help you sleep better.
· Eat in peace
Distractions such as reading, watching TV, noisy environments and dinner table arguments
have very harmful effects on digestion. If you are upset, calm yourself and relax before eating.
· Chew well
Chewing is perhaps the most important part of the digestive process, so chew more than you
think is necessary and avoid swallowing un-chewed food.
· Eat slowly
Enjoy the flavors and textures of every bite.
· Stop before you’re full
You’ll feel full about 10 minutes after a meal if you stop eating when the food begins to lose
some of its taste.
· Stick to your Eating Guidelines Food List
