Metabolic Balance is grounded in science. But it’s also grounded in a real passion to help people get well and most important be able to be empowered to stay well. There are many programs around and we feel it’s vitally important to understand the foundations of a company / program / product to grasp the value. This is why we want to introduce our founders to you.
Metabolic Balance was established in 2002 in a small Bavarian town called Isen which lies about 40km East of Munich in Germany. It was masterminded by a German doctor and nutritionist team. Dr Funfack was passionate about helping his metabolically challenged patients and was frustrated by the standard hospital approach, which, in his opinion, did very little for both short and long term health. Together with his naturopath wife Birgit and nutritionist sister-in-law Silvia Bürkle, they studied, tested, revised and ultimately developed a highly complex nutritional system which took a patient’s blood test results and matched it to the German food database. It could be described that Metabolic Balance is both a highly scientific creation and a kitchen table one too! In essence, it was developed from passion, drive and a determination to make people genuinely healthier and happier.
Since it’s launch nearly 20 years ago, Metabolic Balance has grown to be available in over 35 countries, translated into 18 different languages and has now helped over 1 million people learn their personal foods and change their health futures. When you remember that all Metabolic Balance is, is a detailed analysis that provides someone with a meal plan and food list tailored to them and does not involve any products or supplemental sales, this is a truly formidable legacy.
