Why is the knowledge of one's Metabolic Type [1] important? . . . Because, according to Healthexcel's concepts, without knowing what it is, no rational basis exists for the selection of proper diet and nutritional supplementation, since how foods and nutrients behave in a given individual's metabolism cannot otherwise be known. This conjecture is based upon a number of logically sequential premises that comprise the core of Healthexcel's unique paradigm of balancing body chemistry and building health through The Healthexcel System of Metabolic Typing [2]:

The human body is designed and genetically programmed to be healthy

Every one of the body's approximately 100 trillion+ (100,000,000,000,000) [3] cells "knows" exactly what to do and how to do it properly, as per its genetic "program"

The Healthexcel System of Metabolic Typing views the body as comprised of many different levels which are organized in a hierarchical fashion based upon complexity and function , whereby each higher level is protective of each lower level:

[organism (highest, most complex level) ---> system ---> organ/gland ---> tissue ---> cell ---> nuclear ---> sub-nuclear ---> etc.]

Health requires:

  • Homeostasis through Adaptation, i.e., the maintenance of Balance and Efficiency -- biochemically, physiologically and metabolically -- through all the various levels of the body in a state of dynamic equilibrium
  • The proper and timely quantitative presence of nutrients at the appropriate levels in the body
  • The proper and timely qualitative utilization of nutrients at the appropriate levels in the body

[All metabolic processes require the presence of the right amount of nutrients, in the right balance, at the right place, at the right time, and in the right form (one that is utilizable by those processes)]

Systemic efficiency (e.g., immune system) is based upon Organ/Glandular efficiency (e.g., thymus gland), which is based upon Cellular efficiency (e.g., thymus cells), which is based upon the optimum availability of Energy to the cells (e.g., through cellular oxidation), which depends on the ingestion, digestion, absorption, transportation, assimilation and the timely (quantitative and qualitative) utilization of the genetically-based proper balance of biochemical constituents (nutrition) provided at the right place, the right time, and in a form that is utilizable

There are many thousands of biochemical reactions that take place on a daily basis as part of the innumerable life-supporting processes of metabolism. But, they occur neither independently nor without the direction of fundametal homeostatic controls . . .

. . . Therefore, the potential for sufficient adaptation, continual homeostatic balance, and thereby good health is a measure of the body's ability to manage stressors (spiritual, mental, emotional, structural, biochemical, environmental) through it's capacity for the creation, maintenance and control of energy via the dualistic, diphasic, Fundamental Homeostatic Control Processes / Systems / Mechanisms [4], of which Healthexcel recognizes nine. They are:

  • Autonomic Nervous System (master regulator of metabolism, neuro-endocrine/hormonal balance)
    Sympathetic vs. Parasympathetic [5]
  • Carbo-Oxidative System (conversion of nutrients to energy via intermediary carbohydrate metabolism, involving Glycolysis, Citric Acid (Krebs) Cycle, Beta Oxidation)
    Fast Oxidation vs. Slow Oxidation [6]
  • Lipo-Oxidative Processes (involving fatty acids/sterols balance, cell membrane permeability, aerobic/anaerobic metabolism)
    Catabolic vs. Anabolic [7]
  • Electrolyte/Fluid Balance
    Electrolyte Excess vs. Electrolyte Deficiency [8]
  • Acid/Alkaline Balance (6 potential acid/alkaline imbalances [Metabolic Acidosis, Metabolic Alkalosis, Respiratory Acidosis, Respiratory Alkalosis, Potassium Excess Acidosis, Potassium Depletion Alkalosis], resulting from 7 causal factors [autonomic, carbo-oxidative, lipo-oxidative, electrolyte/fluid balance, respiratory function, endocrine efficiencies (kidney, adrenal, ovary, teste, thyroid, posterior pituitary, parathyroid), chronic dietary imbalance with respect to acid/alkaline pH of foods]
    Acid vs. Alkaline [9]
  • Prostaglandin Balance
    Series 1 + Series 3 Prostaglandins vs. Series 2 Prostaglandins [10]
  • Endocrine System (Endocrine Type as per dominant energy gland)
    Pituitary vs. Thyroid vs. Adrenal vs. Gonad [11]
  • ABO Blood Type
    Type O vs. Type A vs. Type B vs. Type AB [12]
  • Constitutional Elements (constitutional qualities of foods interacting with the constitutional qualities of the body) [13]
  • Neurotransmitter Balance (brain chemistry balance and function)
    Excitatory vs. Inhibitory Neurotransmitters

The critical importance of nutrition in the question of health vs. disease is grasped through the understanding that every nutrient and every food has specific stimulatory or inhibitory effects on one or more of the Fundamental Homeostatic Control Mechanisms listed above
