If Not Weight Loss, Then What?
Metabolic Balance more than just a weight loss program just like HEALTH is about so much more than just weight loss...
We get so many questions asking "is Metabolic Balance just for weight loss," and "can Metabolic Balance help me if I don't need to lose weight"?
First of all, to answer your questions we must get clear on the purpose of what Metabolic Balance sets out to achieve, then, the rest will make perfect sense.
If you're a regular to our blog, you will know that Metabolic Balance is a program that was designed by a German Physician over 20 years ago. Since then, it has helped over 1 million people in 35 different countries achieve optimum health. The program was developed from the knowledge that our daily food has an enormous influence on the functioning of our body systems and processes and therefore on our overall well-being and health.
The program's primary goal is to restore near perfect functioning of our body systems, which we know to be metabolism. Our bodies are amazing, they are constantly working in our favour to keep us healthy and alive! 1000's of biochemical interactions (metabolic processes) work together like a symphony to keep our bodies running smoothly. Your digestion, detoxification, respiration, cardiovascular and nervous system function hormonal balance, enzymatic balance are all a part of this.
Food and eating habits that are considered normal today are not good for most of us. I mean, our Standard Australian Diet spells out SAD, so are we surprised that as a nation our health is deteriorating? At birth, we are born with perfect metabolism. Over the years factors such as poor food choices, environmental toxins and day-to-day stressors and pressures of everyday life can severely damage your body's natural self-regulation and as a result and disease and obesity are common.
Metabolic Balance focuses solely on metabolic health. It addresses the glitches in these metabolic processes (which we find out by assessing your blood chemistry) by giving the body what it needs to heal, solely through food.
When we address the cause of disease and restore the balance of the body many, many the symptoms may resolve naturally.
poor gut health
So, what we are saying is that being overweight is not the issue that we set out to fix. It is the biochemical imbalance going on within the body. The same goes for poor digestion for example. We do not fix just the symptoms, but look at the causation and give the individual what they need to heal!
For this reason, Metabolic Balance is not a quick fix or fad diet. It is a long term lifestyle program that makes changes, for life. Our Clinical Nutritionists work with clients and their doctors (like a little health team) to create an individualised treatment plan that WORKS.
So, whether you have a hormonal imbalance, chronic pain, poor gut health or need to lose weight - we can help you!
