The Metabolic Typing® Assessment is an extensive questionnaire involving physical traits, diet-related traits, and psychological/mental/emotional/behavioral/personality traits that requires computer analysis for assessment.
Healthexcel’s Official Metabolic Typing® proprietary computer analysis is based on nearly 40 years of researching, developing, and analyzing Metabolic Types and the experiences of hundreds of thousands of users. Interestingly, no objective lab tests can identify a Metabolic Type® (MT). That’s because a MT is “the overall metabolic style of functioning” of an individual’s metabolism. In other words, Metabolic Typing® is all about “pattern recognition” involving the expression in each individual’s metabolism of the infinitely variable genetically based strengths and weaknesses in one’s Autonomic Nervous System, Endocrine System, and Oxidation Rate.
Those Fundamental Homeostatic Control (FHC) systems are involved in the regulation of all metabolic processes. The various strengths and weaknesses in those FHC’s are expressed in the innumerable traits that make each of us unique and that define our metabolic individuality, e.g., dry skin/oily skin, good digestion/poor digestion, constipation/diarrhea, anxious/depressed, type A/type B personality, strong appetite/weak appetite. The different patterns of traits that define a Metabolic Type® can only be determined via an accurate computer analysis of a questionnaire and not by a lab test.
That said, don’t let intellectualizing get in the way of or keep you from experiencing what MT can do for you. It doesn’t matter what you think or don’t think, what you believe or don’t believe. MT is “experiential” – either it works or it doesn’t … either it improves your energy and well-being, gets rid of your cravings, restores your health, normalizes your weight, etc., … or, it doesn’t. And the only way to find THAT out is to try it!
