Liver Health

A few weeks ago we wrote about the ways our body detoxifies and one of the major organs involved is the liver. The liver is the largest solid organ in the body and filters the blood from the digestive tract. It plays a vital role in detoxifying chemicals and metabolizing drugs. Keeping your liver healthy and functioning well is important for your overall health. To learn more about tips and ways to improve your liver health check out this infographic below.

Focus on Your Body

The Metabolic Balance program is designed to focus on foods that provide most of the necessary nutrients your body needs.
Metabolic Balance believes that every person can produce the hormones and enzymes required for metabolism when they supply their body with the essential building blocks—carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals, as well as secondary plant substances. With a balanced metabolism, everyone can listen to and trust their inner signals again. This means the body informs us which nutrients it needs to maintain metabolism by developing “cravings” for certain nutrient-rich foods that benefit the body. The Metabolic Balance meal plan is created on the basis of blood values (36 parameters) and personal information (i.e. medication, allergies, etc.). For this purpose, all blood values with their reference ranges from… to were entered into a computer program and out comes important information. Basically, you learn which nutrients are beneficial to improve. In addition, all common foods with all their nutrients, based on the Federal Food Code (BLS), which is reissued every three to five years, are integrated into the program. The nutrients in the food are distributed differently and therefore, the foods selected for the participant will best meet their nutritional needs. At the beginning of the Metabolic Balance meal plan, it is so important that the participants choose from their personal food list that contains a diverse and varied selection.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants that have the scent of the plant they are isolated from. Commonly used in aromatherapy and alternative medicine, these oils can easily be used at home to support your health and overall well-being. They can be used to manage stress and anxiety, improve sleep, decrease inflammation, and help with headaches and migraines. Although not meant for ingestion, essential oils can be applied directly to skin, used in a diffuser or bath, or during a massage. To learn what essential oils are associated with specific health benefits, check out the infographic below!

Take Charge of Your Health

We often hear about increased life expectancy in our society which makes many people think all is well, modern medicine will save them when they need it and they’ll easily live to a ripe old age! The thing to think about though is the quality of your life span. By this we mean the time you are in good health and enjoying a great quality of life. Or rather how much life do you have in your years of life?

Feeling healthy, vibrant and energized throughout life and into old age is good life quality and is what we all want. This isn’t the reality though for so many people. They are instead dependent on medications, medical interventions and suffering the consequences of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, many cancers and heart disease. So living to 85 but with the last 25 years of life filled with pain, discomfort and popping multiple pills doesn’t sound that great to us!

But we know it is never too early or too late to make lifestyle changes to improve your quality of life and expand your healthy life span. Every day your food and lifestyle choices dictate how you feel, how your body works and how your future health could be. Take charge of your health by eating nutrient rich foods, drinking water, getting daily exercise or movement; engaging your brain and aiming for some daily sunlight whenever possible.

It is the little things in life that make a good life…laughing with loved ones, playing with your kids or grand kids, walking with ease and comfort outside, seeing beautiful sunsets and sunrises, sleeping deeply, waking with energy and excitement for a new day, having rich experiences that give us memories which bring smiles to our faces. These things come from health. Ask anyone in pain or discomfort and it’s this list of things that alludes them. 2020 has been a tough year for us all but you could also make it the year you decided to change your health future!

You Are What You Eat!

In order to create a custom and personalized meal plan for you, we need your blood results. You might be wondering why that is!

Well, your blood test results together with your personal information, such as body measurements and food preferences, is the vital information that we need to create a Metabolic Balance nutrition plan that is custom for YOU! Rather than a cookie cutter meal plan that is the same for everyone, we tailor what you eat to your body and lifestyle!

It is only when we know all this information that we can select the right foods which will match your nutritional and metabolic needs. In this way, your food can optimally support and balance your metabolism and you can reach your health goals!

Personalized Nutrition For You

Metabolic Balance is an analysis of a person’s blood test results to find their personalized food list i.e. all the foods that are right for them to eat. Sometimes our analysis can be confused as being a food intolerance test. This is not the case! Metabolic Balance is in fact the opposite of a food intolerance test! From our prospective, classic food intolerance testing is very short term information. It is the response of the body to foods at the time of testing and is highly dependent on gut health, immune health and the quality/source of the food eaten. The Metabolic Balance analysis is about finding the foods required for changing health for the better. This may strongly influence and improve both gut and immune health and hence many previously suspected food intolerances can no longer be a problem. Metabolic Balance is knowledge that heals. Food intolerance testing is short term information that often confuses, restricts and can result in false positives, false negatives and nutrient insufficiency problems.
