Creating personalised nutrition plans for clients is time-consuming and most of all extremely challenging.
We help busy consultants provide highly personalised and effective nutrition plans for their clients at the click of a mouse.
The Metabolic Balance program is a personalised nutrition system that devises a food list from an individual’s blood results, health goals, medical history, current medication, body measurements and food preferences.
Obesity is emerging as an important health concern in India. A recent study reported that India has 135 million (13.5 Crore) people affected with obesity. Studies have shown that 30-65% of adult urban population is overweight or obese. The prevalence of overweight & obese population in India is increasing at a faster rate than the world average. This is alarming for us as this prevalence acts as a predisposing factor for non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal disorders and even some cancers (prostrate, breast, liver, colon etc). India’s population having diabetes type 2 in 2017 was 74 million. It’s clear to see the problem is getting worse.
The National Nutrition Survey done by the government of India revealed that 5% children between the 5-19 years of age are overweight. Also, 10% children between the age group of 5-9 years have pre-diabetes and 1% already suffer from diabetes. Besides the risk of insulin resistance & pre-diabetes, childhood obesity causes difficulty in breathing, increased risk of fractures, hypertension and other psychological issues.
Obesity is preventable and people need to recognize the role of nutrition and lifestyle changes to curb this epidemic.
Devising personalised meal plans and food lists is a genuinely complex and time-consuming task for consultants. By introducing Metabolic Balance to your practice you have access to a scientifically validated method trusted by doctors and consultants around the world to help resolve and improve metabolic conditions. You are able to easily and quickly provide your clients with an individualised and effective food only program so they get excellent results and you are able to sustain a successful natural health practice.
Metabolic Balance was devised by Dr. Wolf Funfack and Sylvia Bürkle following over 20 years of research in Germany. The Metabolic Balance software program is based on the German national food database which is then tailored to each individual country.
The principles of Metabolic Balance were developed based on the findings of medical research studies, personal research, and Dr Funfack’s clinical experience. This complex program gets continually refined and adjusted to reflect current developments in nutritional science.
Today Metabolic Balance is widespread. It is well-known throughout Germany and is now available from professional consultants in over 30 countries around the world. The basic concept of individuality has not changed since its original creation. That individuality covers the nutrition plans, the personal supervision, and the joy the participants experience when the success of Metabolic Balance begins to work for them.
There are numerous books (in English and German) outlining the program and a 2010 research paper.
