Metabolic Typing Diet

Let's start with a simple but very effective explanation of how your body works. We can sum the entire process up with one word...ENERGY. Contained in everything around us energy is the life force of all that is seen and unseen. Without energy nothing exists. The great physicist Albert Einstein set the science world ablaze with the equation E=MC2. In other words energy can neither be created or destroyed it just changes form. So where does your life sustaining energy come from?

If you guessed the sun and food you're exactly right. Without the electromagnetic rays of energy we call "light" coming from the sun there would be no life on our planet. This light energy is rich in photons that plants, algae, and bacteria use to split water molecules in a process called photosynthesis.

So why are we rambling on about plants, algae, and bacteria when we really should be talking about you? Because it is through photosynthesis that the energy contained in sunlight is used to remove electrons from water that in turn convert carbon dioxide into organic compounds, or food. To put this in perspective photosynthesis traps over 6 times the total power consumption of human civilization annually and converts photon energy to electron energy.

Now we get to talk about you. Your body is an amazing power plant that converts the energy contained in the foods you eat to usable "electrical" energy. Every metabolic, nerve, and brain process in your body involves the transfer of electrons. For those of you who remember basic science the flow or movement of electrons is also known as electricity. It is what we call "The Body Electric".

Understanding how your body works at the most basic level is critically important. We could confuse you on how proteins convert to amino acids and back again, and the importance of enzymes, water, and a complex host of other medical explanations of how your body works. But in the end each of these processes involves electrons or electrical energy.

The science behind the WellnessFirst & Wellness Metabolic Typing program stems from years of research in the field of nutrition. It started back in the late 1950's through the work of researcher Roger J Williams PhD as outlined in his book Biochemical Individuality. We'll spare you the technical details and dry research data but the end result was the revelation that no two people process energy from food the same way. Each one of us is unique in how we convert nutrients in food into the basic energy and building blocks needed to keep us at optimum health.

We'll give you one glaring example of this phenomenon. How many vegetarian Eskimos are there? Probably not many given their traditional diet consists mostly of fats and proteins. By today's accepted nutritional standards their diet would be considered far from healthy. Yet for thousands of years they thrived and sustained a healthy way of life. These indigenous people were uniquely suited to their environment and were able to maintain health through biochemical processes that created the energy needed to sustain life in harsh elements.

This same principle of adaption applies to all of us. We all come from differing genetic backgrounds which evolved from the unique environments our ancestors lived in. Science has now turned the corner and confirmed that our genetics are shaped by the external demands or stresses in the environments in which we are immersed. Dr Bruce Lipton clearly provides proof of this in his book Biology of Belief. So if this is the case then we must all process food differently. In other words one size does 'not' fit all.

The basis of Metabolic Typing is to establish your unique way of converting food into energy. If you're eating the wrong foods for your Metabolic Type then you are not powering your body properly. Over time this results in many health imbalances which can include general fatigue, pain, high blood pressure, cholesterol imbalances, blood sugar imbalances, emotional unrest, and more.

At WellnessFirst Health Clinic our assessment is designed to uncover your Metabolic Type and the effects of poor lifestyle on your health. We then show you the foods that will help optimize your health, vitality, and wellbeing.
