Allopathic Nutrition versus Metabolic Nutrition

Most nutritionists today practice allopathic nutrition. I will describe a few examples. Calcium is usually prescribed to individuals with osteoporosis. Niacin is usually prescribed with high cholesterol or poor circulation. Vitamin B-6 is usually prescribed for circulatory disorders. These various supplements are prescribed to treat disorders with total disregard for the metabolic persuasion of the person. What is so confusing and confounding about nutrition today is many people are helped by these protocols and just as many are not helped or perhaps, made worse. Why is this? The late Dr. Roger Williams stated we are all biochemically different. Today we have a greater understanding of metabolic types. Each one of us is dominant in one of five metabolic types.

1. Oxidative Acid
2. Oxidative Alkaline
3. Balanced
4. Autonomic Sympathetic (acid )
5. Autonomic Parasympathetic ( alkaline )

The intent of this report is to explain why certain supplements work on some people and not on others. Explaining the metabolic types in detail would make this report too lengthy and perhaps too complex. Understanding these premises and facts can make a simplistic explanation.

1. Ideal venous blood is pH 7.46.-Below this figure is acid: above this figure is alkaline. If one's blood pH were to be in the proximity of ideal, then optimum absorption and utilization of micro and macro-nutrients will take place. The further one's pH deviates from the ideal, the less efficient will be the absorption and utilization of these nutrients. This is when allergies, fatigue, digestive disorders, and a multitude of other disease conditions can occur.
2. Metabolism can be defined as the total chemical and electrical reactions that take place in a cell or organism. Two of the metabolic states we are looking at are the oxidative and autonomic systems.
3. The oxidative system can be defined as the speed at which the tissues of the body convert food to energy. Two branches of this system are the acid (fast oxidizers ) and the alkaline (slow oxidizers ).
4. The autonomic system can be defined as the metabolic processes controlled by the hormonal and autonomic nervous system. Two branches of this system are the sympathetic (acid ) and the parasympathetic ( alkaline ).

It is my sincerest desire to convey to you the different metabolic types in such a way that it will not be confusing. Keep in mind that we can be acid or alkaline in the oxidative system or acid or alkaline in the autonomic system. THE BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO SYSTEMS IS THAT ACID FORMING FOODS ACIDIFY THE BLOOD OF THE OXIDATIVE TYPE AND ALKALINE FORMING FOODS ALKALIZE THE BLOOD OF THE OXIDATIVE TYPE. THE EXACT OPPOSITE OCCURS IN THE AUTONOMIC METABOLIC TYPE. ACID FORMING FOODS ALKALIZE THE BLOOD OF THE AUTONOMIC TYPE AND ALKALINE FORMING FOODS ACIDIFY THE BLOOD OF THE AUTONOMIC TYPE. This phenomenon is scientifically and factually proven. It is not theory, but fact.

With your complete understanding of the above, what has this got to do with allopathic and metabolic nutrition? When nutritionists treat disease states in humans without taking into consideration their metabolic type, the prognosis is hit or miss. They could be right or wrong depending on their metabolic type. Keep in mind, all foods and supplements are either acid or alkaline forming in our body. An example of this is giving calcium to a person with osteoporosis; it would be great for the oxidative acid person but would compound the problem for the oxidative alkaline person. The reason being that calcium is alkaline forming in the oxidative type. We have to think of balancing the venous blood pH optimally. Homeostasis is the body regulating the metabolism optimally. In people with bone loss, you can have too much calcium or not enough. Oxidative acid people need calcium supplements; oxidative alkaline people need potassium, magnesium, and manganese (as they are acid forming in the oxidative system)

The acid-alkaline balance/relationship in our blood is extremely important from the standpoint of health. We now have accurate methods for determining metabolic imbalances. It is not necessary to practice nutrition allopathically today, because our metabolic testings are extremely valid and accurate. NUTRITION SHOULD FOCUS ON AND TREAT THE PERSON WITH THE DISEASE AND NOT THE DISEASE WITH THE PERSON.

In conclusion, I wish to reiterate that when the patient is balanced metabolically, many disease symptoms subside. Allergies that a person might have had for years disappear. Fatigue problems will be alleviated. Digestive disorders most likely will be ameliorated. The body will utilize its nutrients optimally. For a more in depth explanasion.
