A way to determine your Metabolic Type if you live in an area without trained
practitioners. If you would like to learn more about this please visit our Self Test page.
- Analysis of your Metabolic Type : First visit. This 2 1/2 hour
consultation will enable us to determine your metabolic type and
what foods and supplements you need to balance your blood pH. You
must be fasting for the appointment. Testing includes a modified glucose challenge drink, urine and
saliva pH, blood pressure, pulse, four blood sugar readings, and lab assessments including Vitamin C threshold, electrolyte
status, and anabolic/catabolic status.
- One Hour Appointment: The one hour appointment is a great
way to get a nutritional "tune-up." Fasting urine and saliva pH
are checked, and blood sugar is checked twice (fasting and 1/2 hour
after a glucose challenge drink). Though not as comprehensive as
the full protocol to determine your Metabolic Type test, enough data will be gathered to
make sure that you are on the right track.
- Metabolic Weight Loss Programs: Six, nine, and twelve week programs
are available. To make lasting changes, you need the accountability
and support to create a stable foundation for permanent weight
loss. Because you'll be eating for your metabolic type, you'll
experience fewer cravings and more energy. Weekly half hour visits
with your nutritionist will help to keep you motivated and on
- ALCAT Allergy Testing: To further perfect your diet, we
offer the 20 Food Finger Stick Screen in a convenient take home
test kit. This blood test detects allergies to the 20 most common
allergy-inducing foods. Results include a booklet with foods to
avoid, minimize, and eat in abundance.
- Hormone Testing Panels: We offer two levels of salivary
hormone testing from ZRT. The 2 tube kit is an assessment that measures
estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA. It also includes
morning and evening cortisol levels. The 4 tube kit measures all of
the above as well as two additional cortisol readings over the
course of the day. Both testing kits provide invaluable information
and enable us to better guide you toward natural hormorne replacement, restored energy levels and weight loss. A half hour phone conversation with
our consulting naturopath is included at no extra charge.
- Cardio-Metabolic Profile: This at-home blood spot test assesses several of the markers that have been identified as risk factors for metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and Type II Diabetes. These biomarkers are: High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, Insulin, Hemoglobin A1C, and Triglycerides. Call to find out more or to purchase.
- Vitamin D2 and D3: Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to various cancers, cardiovascular health, bone health, depression, and autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and Type I Diabetes. Find out if you are at risk. A simple blood-spot test can help you to determine if you have adequate levels of this critical vitamin.
Dr. Kristal's book The Nutrition Solution on metabolic type testing is available for purchase. It explains why we address "treating the person with the disease rather than the disease with the person." If you would like to learn more about the science behind the Metabolic Types in an easy to read format, this book is for you.
My system has been "off" for some time. I was told my first visit I am borderline-diabetic, knew I was overweight at 201 lbs. and had horrible digestion. I take medicine that causes weight gain and low energy. I've been addicted to sugar since high school (I'm 32 now). Committing to the program MN offers- the visits, the supplements and the right foods has now paid off. I now weigh 180, am completely off sugar (and coffee), my blood sugar has improved and everyone says I generally look better, healthier. This would not have been possible without the supplements as support. It is also so relieving to know what it is I should and shouldn't eat. Thank you Metabolic Nutrition.
I am ecstatic for my son's progress with his disease, ulcerative colitis, as his mother, a great weight is lifted off of my heart to see him beginning to feel better and look better too. I can't thank you enough for how positively you have impacted our family.
Thank you so much for the work you did with me. I am spreading the word about you! Just to let you know, my energy has increased, I am experiencing two bowel movements a day, and I feel great. Have to say that I look GOOD too! Thanks.
I came to see you a few months ago and so much has changed for the better. I have sent a few people your way who feel the same, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you so much for your help and enthusiasm, you have answered so many questions that I had, and didn't make me feel like I was crazy...the changes have been awesome, I'm starting to feel "normal" again.
