ever wondered why some people seem to thrive on a vegetarian diet while others' health will start to decline? Have you ever felt
confused by all of the conflicting information out there about
nutrition and the "best" way to eat? Who should we believe? It seems
everyone has convincing evidence for their point of view. How could this be? The reason is
simple. Different people need different kinds of foods; one person's
nourishment is another's poison. The trick is to discover what kinds of foods
your individual metabolism thrives on. That's where metabolic testing
Metabolic Testing is a revolutionary system for
optimizing whole body health. Diet and nutritional supplements are
used to address the individual at a fundamental metabolic level,
allowing for increased energy, weight loss and greater resistance
By conducting a series of simple tests (performed either in our office or at home with an easy-to-use Self-Test Kit) we are able to determine each individual's Metabolic Type. This is the fundamental way in which your body produces and processes energy. With this knowledge the individual can knowingly select the foods and nutritional supplements that are tailored to his or her specific metabolism.
Many diets claim to promote energy and weight loss, but they only work effectively in the long term if they are compatible with your Metabolic Type. This explains why one person can lose weight on a particular diet, while another person might gain weight on exactly the same diet. Not all foods and supplements are equally good for all people. Metabolic Typing is the missing link that explains why one person's food may literally be another person's poison.
Our clinic, Metabolic Nutrition, in Mill Valley, CA is where Dr.
Harold Kristal developed his orginal, in-office testing protocol, the
Kristal Method of Metabolic Testing. Our thoroughly trained certified
nutrition consultants continue to carry out his work in the clinic.
Personalized Metabolic Nutrition,a sister company to Metabolic
Nutrition, also conducts seminars in both the United States and Europe for health professionals who wish to learn the theory and testing protocols.
Dr. Kristal's vision was to promote Functional Metabolic Testing and to get as
many healthcare providers as possible to embrace it.
