A Metabolic Nutritional Assessment includes a comprehensive series of different chemical and physiological measurements and data gathering. The purpose of a Metabolic Nutritional Assessment is to determine in what ways your body’s metabolism is out of balance. Each individual has a unique biological individuality and each individual has compensating mechanisms within their body that will uniquely compensate for any imbalance present in whatever way it can, given their current state of internal bio-chemistry and bio-physics. Through the data gathering process, measurements will be obtained of the client’s chemistry and physiological parameters that will show exactly where their biology stands which will then reflect how their core metabolic control mechanisms are functioning. From there, the specific “patterns of dysfunction” will be defined and then proceed to educate the client what foods and what supplements can bring nutritional balance, as well as what foods and what supplements can possibly cause harm.
There are five fundamental metabolic control systems that must function properly to keep strength and health. The metabolic control systems determine how efficiently the body and mind work. They control the energy production; they control the function of the heart and circulation; they control the function of the brain and nervous system; they determine the efficiency of digestion and assimilation of nutrients; they control the chemical balance in the blood and in the cells; they help regulate the hormone balance; they help efficiently eliminate toxic waste products of metabolism; and, they minimize the degenerative changes associated with the aging process.
When one or more of these control systems loses efficiency the body and mind simply cannot perform at their best. When the metabolic imbalance is severe enough or exists for a prolonged time, pathological changes take place and suffering from the symptoms of disease occur.
The Five Fundamental Metabolic Balances are as follows:
- Electrolyte Deficiency/Electrolyte Excess Balance
- Anabolic (Anaerobic )/Catabolic (Dysaerobic) Balance
- Glucogenic/Ketogenic Balance
- Sympathetic/Parasympathetic Balance
- Acid/Alkaline Balance
There is no disease that can begin or continue to exist without at least one of the metabolic control systems being out of balance. Will the process of a Metabolic Nutritional Assessment be finding and treating disease? Absolutely not. The assessment will be identifying physiological patterns of biological/chemical/electrical dysfunction and educating the client on how to correct the imbalance. A nice side benefit of this process is if they have a currently diagnosed “disease” it may very well dissipate as a result.
A Metabolic Nutritional Assessment offers a systematic approach which is client-specific rather than disease-specific. This means a client will not be offered a collection of “remedies” for any symptoms or conditions they may be suffering. Instead through a scientific systematic approach, information is gathered identifying specific metabolic nutritional needs — not a trial and error approach.
The goal of a Metabolic Nutritional Assessment is to restore balance to the Metabolic Control Systems. It is the only way to assure living maximum potential. The result will be:
- better resistance to disease
- renewed strength, such that functional and pathological symptoms can be overcome faster
- more complete tissue repair and regeneration
- more effective handling of stress
- a high level of vitality
- a slowing of the aging process.
Metabolic Nutritional Balancing addresses each of the metabolic imbalances found to disable the ability to perform the following essential functions:
- maintain glycemic control
- maintain normal oxidative metabolism
- maintain ideal pH
- maintain ideal concentrations of electrolytes and biologically active water
These four essential functions are everything. They are the difference between living stronger-longer or being sicker-quicker.
A follow-up assessment will be required to ensure:
1. ……a client is responding favorably to the eating plan and supplement plan. Within less than a week’s time Metabolic Imbalances should begin to show some improvement. If they do not, the quantity of supplements may need to be temporarily increased.
2. ……that a client has not over-corrected. It often happens that a person’s Metabolic Imbalances respond very quickly to the high biological activity of NUTRI-SPEC supplements. In that case, it will already be time to decrease the quantity of supplements that are being taken.
3. ……that there is no additional Metabolic Imbalances that were not apparent on the first visit.
Thereafter, a follow-up assessment is required in 6 to 8 weeks. If there is any undesired issues before that time an earlier appointment maybe necessary. As progress occurs with the NUTRI-SPEC supplement plan, the Metabolic Imbalances found on the first assessment may respond very well. They may even be totally corrected. As these disappear, however, other Imbalances may become apparent, necessitating some change in the eating plan and supplement plan. Nutritional needs are certain to change over time. Metabolic Nutritional Balancing is there to serve in times of increased stress. Metabolic Balance through scientific nutrition and measurements are always available as a guide for the very best eating plan and the very best supplements for every unique individualized body chemistry.
