Metabolic Typing: 7 Reasons Why What You Eat Has A Bigger Influence
On Your Health Than Almost ANY Other Factor.
Sometimes old sayings carry great wisdom. Take for example the famous
proverb, "One man's meat is another man's poison." If you take it
literally, it means that perfectly good food for someone else might kill
you. When you understand this idea, you've come a long way towards grasping
the value of Metabolic Typing. Of course, the trick is to figure out
exactly what foods are best for you. Metabolic Typing is a good way to
determine this quickly and easily.
We'll leave for another day the discussion of how we as modern people have
come to think what we eat doesn't matter. For now, let's look at why
knowing your unique metabolic requirements is crucial for optimal health:
Your ancestors ate the foods that were naturally present in their
environment. Eskimos and other northern climate residents ate fish,
meat and fat, with little or no fruit and vegetables. People living in
Mediterranean areas had lots of fruits and vegetables to choose from.
Now we can pretty much get anything from anywhere at any time of the
year. Unfortunately, our DNA hasn't kept up with the changes in modern
commerce. We're still much more capable of existing on foods similar to
how our ancestors ate.
In the same way tuning the engine in your car
won't matter if you put in the wrong fuel
, almost nothing else you do - exercise, meditation, positive thinking,
herbs, supplements, medications, etc. - will make as much difference
for your physical health and energy as eating the right foods.
Modern medicine has identified the fundamental nutritional components
we need to survive. What they haven't told us is that each person
requires a different proportion of these fundamental nutrients
(fats, proteins and carbohydrates). It's crucial for you to figure out
your best mix of these basic nutrients.
People forget that their digestive tract is actually just one long tube
that starts at their mouth and ends at their rectum. This means that all intestinal and digestive issues are directly
related to the type and quality of food you eat. In the parlance of
computer programmers, "garbage in, garbage out."
Even if you eat nothing but the foods on your Metabolic Typing
list and eat them in the right proportions, you will still not get the
full benefit unless you are eating whole, fresh, natural forms of these
foods. If they are processed (packaged, bottled, canned, etc.) many of
the beneficial nutrients are no longer available to you. This is the
source of many chronic degenerative diseases. See the
article on Weston A. Price
for more information on this.
Eating whole, fresh, natural foods also avoids the totally un-natural
additives, preservatives, pesticides and packaging chemicals present in
processed foods. This alone will reduce your body's toxic load and
improve your health. When you add to that the additional nutritional
value of not processing them, this is a major step in the direction of
Ultimately, you are the person who gets to experience the results of
your choices. Everyone else who tells you what you should eat, even if
they are well-intentioned, won't be as accurate as your body's own
feedback mechanism. Your body never lies. If you have pain, digestive
issues, breathing problems, fatigue, emotional swings, mental focus
difficulties, or any other physical symptoms, you are probably not
eating your ideal mix of foods.
More and more people are becoming believers in herbal medicine, taking
supplements, exercise, chiropractic and other forms of self-care and
creating natural health. Even so, without the right foods, none of these is
as effective as they could be. Pay close attention to how your body
responds to the foods you eat and to modify your food choices accordingly.
You may not see a magical overnight change in your health, but given time
and persistence, you will see great improvement.
