Metabolism is More than Just Calorie Input vs Energy Output

Your metabolism is more than how many calories you burn versus how much you are taking in. Metabolism refers to all the chemical processes that occur within a living organism in order to maintain life.

These metabolic processes are interlinked, and the output from one process acts as an input to another. Each cell in the body contains thousands of metabolic pathways, all of which are interlinked to some extent. So, a single blockage may affect numerous biochemical processes.

Food is broken down by cellular enzymes into various different biochemical products. These products then become the input materials into the next metabolic pathway. If an input material is missing, the following pathway becomes blocked, and the formation of the final product is deficient. Similarly, if a detoxification pathway is blocked, it will cause accumulation of toxic by-product in your body, resulting in inflammation and diseases.

Daily, 24x7, our metabolic processes produce chemical energy (ATP), build and breakdown substances like muscles, enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, bones and others. Energy production, cellular regeneration, detoxification, digestion, nutrient absorption and transportation are all part of the metabolic process.

Your Metabolic Health is a sum total of all these factors that influence your health, throughout your life.

In reality, for most of us, you have the power to change the destiny of your health, vitality and how gracefully you will age.

The choices you make every day combined with how equipped you are to deal with environmental exposure and stress, will create your future health.

Nutrition is the Key to Metabolism

Metabolism rely upon adequate, balanced nutrients – carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins, minerals – to function optimally. It is true that the human body can make nutrients, but not all nutrients can be made. Almost all the vitamins, all minerals and some amino acids must be obtained from dietary sources.

Nutritional deficiencies and excess will both result in metabolic dysfunction and ultimately, a diseased condition.

Metabolic nutrition therapy is the alternative approach to treating medical conditions and their symptoms.

If you are challenged by a particular condition, or you cannot tolerate drug therapy, nutrition therapy can be the alternative. We can create an individualized approach that is unique to your health challenges.

Schedule an Appointment

1. Schedule an Appointment

Once we received your appointment request, we will contact you on email to reconfirm your appointment date, time and location. We would also ask that you complete the New Client Registration Form and returned the form to us, with previous lab works/health test reports (If available), one day before the appointment.

2. Initial Consultation

Each consultation is 90mins.

We will review your previous lab works, gathering information on the history of your illness, symptoms and any previous treatments/therapies you have done. We will also go over the medications and supplements that you take.

Your willingness to be open is very important during this time. Please rest assured that you would not be judged for anything you say to us. Your information is confidential, but vital for our understanding of your metabolic condition. We will give you a clinical impression of your case, and how we would like to approach the treatment.
If further health tests are required, we will outline the necessary procedures.

3. Follow Up Consultation

Each consultation is 60 mins.

We want to know how you have been feeling since the previous visit; how things might have changed (or haven’t changed) with the treatment plan.

Do come prepared with questions that you may have.

Proper follow up is the single most important aspect of your treatment because it allows us to monitor your progress and change therapies as necessary, to ensure that your progression towards health is as quick and smooth as possible.
