Metabolic Balance is a nutritional analysis to create personalised eating plans for patients. Using a comprehensive blood pathology panel and health information, we provide a food focused solution for metabolic and inflammatory conditions. Patients can understand which foods are optimal for them together with the ideal food combinations and quantities.
Developed in Germany and based on the findings of clinical and nutrition research studies, Metabolic Balance is relied upon by doctors and nutritional professionals around the world to provide personalised nutrition for their patients to naturally restore a healthy metabolism through dietary and lifestyle changes. Healthy weight regulation naturally results from improved metabolic health.
“We all know the importance of nutrition in facilitating healing and wellness, and often tout the line “Let Food be thy Medicine”. However, so many times in General Practice have I offered the obligatory advice to “make some changes to your diet and lifestyle”, “go and see a dietitian” and seen no results from the patient’s health perspective. As a GP with an interest in Integrative Medicine, I was looking for a solution to provide my patients with effective nutrition advice without having to design an individual dietary plan for every individual.
On first stumbling across Metabolic Balance, it seemed too good to be true. Now, 4 months on from having done the training, I have integrated the program into my GP clinic work and am finding patients are very receptive to it. To date I have over a dozen patients on the program and many others due to start in the coming weeks. Within days of starting the program, my patients report an overall feeling of wellbeing- reduced brain fog, better sleep and digestion, more energy and weight loss for those who need it.
Whilst Metabolic Balance is primarily marketed for weight loss and can’t make claims to cure or treat disease per se, I see the value in individualised nutrition for almost every patient and feel strongly that this program has the potential to benefit the health of the majority of people. Now when I see a patient I can’t stop thinking- “would Metabolic Balance help this person?” I am offering Metabolic Balance to anyone who is overweight, has features of Metabolic Syndrome, menopausal or menstrual issues, poor gut health, food intolerances, joint pain, fatigue, thyroid issues and many other ailments.
With Metabolic Balance in my toolkit, I feel empowered as a GP to be able to truly help my patients get their health on track, without the need to refer to a dietitian, and patients are feeling like they have the ability to take control of their own health at last”
