As a research-based organization since 1987, Healthexcel is the established leader in the rapidly emerging field of Metabolic Typing or customized nutrition. In addition to conducting Metabolic Typing research, Healthexcel provides technical consulting services to health professionals engaged in nutritional counseling and ecological lifestyle management. The company offers advanced computer-based services that enable health professionals to evaluate the highly individualized dietary needs of patients and clients, and to provide customized dietary programs for one's Metabolic Type.
Metabolic Typing is the scientific methodology for customized nutrition and is based on the fact that there is no universally healthy diet that is right for all people. Anyone can use Metabolic Typing to find out exactly which foods are good for their health, and those that are not. Metabolic Typing also identifies nutritional supplements that will make you as healthy as you can be and will keep you from wasting your money on those that would make you tired and sick.
Through computer analysis, Metabolic Typing interprets and understands body language, which is the body's means of communicating its physical, mental, emotional and behavioral characteristics, as well as its efficiency and homeostatic balance, through which individual, genetically-based nutritional requirements may be understood and applied.
Metabolic Typing is based on the understanding that although there are tens of thousands of biochemical reactions that take place in your body every day, they all fall under the control of only a few Fundamental Homeostatic Controls. The Healthexcel System of Metabolic Typing recognizes 9 such control mechanisms and uses them to evaluate and determine each person's Metabolic Type. It is the inherited various strengths and weaknesses in these control mechanisms that define our biochemical individuality and makes each of us unique. Importantly, every food and every nutrient has very specific effects on these Fundamental Controls. For this reason, not knowing one's Metabolic Type makes it impossible to know which foods or nutrients are best for each person.
Metabolic Typing explains why it is that a given diet/nutritional therapy works for one patient, has little or no effect on another, and can actually worsen a third. Metabolic Typing explains why two people with the same disease require biochemically opposite approaches to get well. Metabolic Typing explains why it is that for every book that says one thing about nutrition, you can find another book that says the opposite. Metabolic Typing reveals why there will never be one diet that is right for everyone and why a given diet will cause one to lose weight, while another to gain weight. Metabolic Typing explains how someone can eat organic foods, take the best supplements money can buy, exercise regularly, sleep well, and still not feel well.
These answers and many, many more may be found in The Healthexcel System of Metabolic Typing, based on 25 years of research in the exciting field of customized nutrition through Metabolic Typing and the determination of individual metabolic requirements.
