I am happy to tell you about my newest discovery in nutrition that came about as a result of my own recent bout of ill health. For the last four years I have been pushing myself something fierce – working to complete my PhD at the same time as my holistic nutrition degree. The crazy pace caught up to me and I had a health crash in September.
Many of my old symptoms returned:
- Hives and rashes so bad I could tear off my skin
- Sleepless nights
- Bronchitis and coughing
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Rings and shoes did not fit
- Weight gain of 10 pounds
- Bloated out of proportion – nothing fit
I went to my nutritionist and she told me I was burnt out – something I already knew – but what to do about it, considering all I want to achieve every day?
Given that I already know about many methods of dealing with burnout through proper diet and homeopathy, we both considered my case a stubborn one, and so my nutritionist introduced me to “Metabolic Balancing”. The program was created in Germany by Dr. Wolf Funfack. It is designed to stabilize blood sugar levels to achieve optimal function of hormones and body systems.
It was expensive, but I was tired of being sick for 6 weeks, so I went for it; Amazingly, within 2 days of being on the plan all my ailments listed above were gone. I am a petite little thing and I had ballooned to 116 lbs. but quickly got down to 107 lbs.
Needless to say, I was eager to help others with this extraordinary plan and am pleased to announce I have recently achieved certification as a Metabolic Balance Coach.
The plan uses 30 blood markers that measure inflammation in the body. That blood work is sent to the German labs, along with the personal history of the patient.
A personal food protocol is created based on the blood work results. In addition, since the blood sugar levels are completely stabilized – this leads to decreased inflammation in the body. Remember that every time you eat refined breads, commercial meat and sugar you raise your insulin levels. This leads the body to produce arachodonic acid which leads to the production of prostaglandin 2.
Prostoglandin 2 Causes:
- Raised blood pressure
- Increases in fat mass and lipids
- Reduced immunity
- Water retention
- Shut down in bronchial passages
- And more …
The body is a brilliant mechanism that if allowed, under the healthy conditions will return to its ideal weight.
My recent certification as Metabolic Balance Coach gives me the key that will help 80 to 90 % of my patients lose weight. As a weight loss coach, it is a challenge to find plans that work for weight loss in some stubborn cases. Metabolic Balancing is certainly moving fat and rebalancing systems in those stubborn cases – including mine!
