identify & correct metabolic deficiencies
Your metabolism is not just your caloric intake and expenditure. Metabolism involves all of the chemical reactions in your body. Expressions of slow metabolism may include fatigue, aches and pains, high cholesterol or blood pressure or persistant food cravings, and you do not have to be overweight to experience metabolic imbalance. Because there are many factors that can affect metabolism, there are likewise many reasons why you may have a decreased metabolic function. Identify and correct your metabolic deficiencies with Metabolic Code.
Who Can Benefit from Metabolic Code?
Practically anyone. If you are looking to improve your health, gain energy, lose weight or reduce risk factors such as elevated lipids, glucose or chronic inflammation, this comprehensive wellness evaluation can help you advance towards your health goals. Metabolic Code creates an individualized approach that is unique to your biochemical challenges.
How the Metabolic Code Program Works
We start by collecting and analyzing your biometric data, symptoms, and blood, urine, and salivary lab test results to identify your metabolic health and challenges. The Metabolic Code algorithm assigns values for the data collected in five key domains, called Triads.
Each Triad consists of three interdependent physiological systems which form a collective sub-unit of important biochemical interactivity in your body. The Metabolic Code Report provides an evaluation of your health for each Triad, listing the most imbalanced Triad first, and provides simple and clear recommendations to improve each Triad.
In addition to system or organ-based intra-relationships within each Triad, all of the Triads can also influence one another. This is known as Triad stacking and explains how different metabolic networks affect each other.
Metabolic Code Triads
Triad 1: Energy
Adrenal – Thyroid – Pancreas
encompasses the relationship between three important hormones: cortisol, insulin, and thyroid, which reflect the state of stress, glucose balance, and metabolism. In their most basic function, each is responsible for energy production. When Triad 1 is balanced, a person feels vital and healthy, but when unbalanced, a person feels fatigued and has a higher propensity for being overweight or obese.
Triad 2: Resiliency
Gut – Immune – Brain
is comprised of the digestive tract, immune system, and the central nervous system. Together, these intelligent body systems make moment-to-moment decisions with regard to absorption and assimilation, and set key boundaries physically, immunologically, and mentally. When Triad 2 is normal, the person feels organized and secure within themselves and their environment, and when out of balance, this physiologic network becomes disordered and unpredictable. The key concept of Triad 2 is resiliency. An immune system that appropriately responds; absorption and utilization of nutrients; and clarity of mind are central to a balance within Triad 2.
Triad 3: Endurance
Cardio – Pulmonary – Neuro-Vascular
includes the cardiopulmonary unit, autonomic nervous system, and the vascular tree. This Triad reflects the relationship of the mind and heart and is mediated by the respiratory cycle. When Triad 3 is in balance, the individual has plenty of metabolic resiliency and strength to meet the challenges of life. The key concept in this Triad is endurance and stamina. The delivery of oxygen and the pliability of the vascular tree along with the sense of neurologic balance are key constructs of this Triad.
Triad 4: Detoxification
Liver – Lymph – Kidneys
contains the drainage organs of the liver, lymph, and kidneys. These organs form a functional unit for detoxification and elimination, metabolic processing and removal of toxins, and enzymatic activities. They allow us to thrive in a toxic world. When Triad 4 is in harmony, there is a smooth flow of substrates and emotions, and when out of balance, inflammation, stagnation, and retention ensues.
Triad 5: Potency
Testosterone – Estrogen – Progesterone
includes the reproductive hormones, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone which play a central role in the reproductive life cycle. They confer a sense of potency, power, and self-esteem for both men and women.
