Metabolic Chaos® is a state of health that exists because of complexities in one’s metabolism and underestimated influences from the environment, so correlation between the symptoms and cause is unpredictable.
One clue to Metabolic Chaos® is when intervention, based on a traditionally reliable cluster of symptoms, produces only a marginal therapeutic response. This new way of looking at disease helps us to understand how symptoms attributed to a medical diagnosis, when treatment for that medical diagnosis fails, are likely originating far upstream from the system that is being treated.
Hidden stress and imbalances, if not soon resolved, cascade into other areas and Metabolic Chaos® ensues. More serious dysfunction occurs and, depending on individual weak links in metabolism, leads to a disease process and, finally, the symptoms or cluster of symptoms appears.
In other words, symptoms don’t matter or, at least, they are not the real problem.
They are the result of the problem.
Put another way, contributors to Metabolic Chaos® are at cause and Metabolic Chaos® is the effect, until Metabolic Chaos® itself becomes the primary unwanted condition.
A short list of the results of and contributors to Metabolic Chaos® include:
- Adrenal-related dysfunction
- Circadian rhythm disruptions
- Poor nutrient breakdown and absorption
- Pro-oxidant/antioxidant imbalances
- Dysbiosis and gut malfunction
- Systemic inflammation
- Detoxification problems
FDN Health Coaches not only learn how these dysfunctions occur, but proven method of helping their clients resolve them.
Through step-by-step assessment procedures we identify underlying conditions and “healing opportunities”.
As FDN practitioners, our methods may appear too simple.
We “coach up” the innate healing ability or vital reserve in our clients, as we “coach down” contributors to Metabolic Chaos®.
We get results or lack thereof due to how well we apply the general principles of health building and routinely outperform the specific treatments offered by standard medicine and other coaching systems.
Functional lab test reports, well-correlated with a real person and their health complaints, contain clues about imbalances and dysfunctions and other causal factors. As health detectives we have no interest in medical diagnosis or “treating the paper”.
We use the lab data to gain insights and form an impression about a person and what they need to do to improve their health. Clinical correlation between the lab test results and the client’s history and complaints, along with protocols that seek to do more than just relieve symptoms, provide reasonable assurance that clients can finally put an end to the horrible cycle of trial and error.
What is METABOLIC health?
Metabolic health refers to the state of an individual’s metabolic processes, which are the chemical reactions that occur within the body to maintain life. These processes involve the conversion of food and nutrients into energy, as well as the regulation of various substances in the body, such as glucose, lipids (fats), and hormones. Metabolic health is critical for overall well-being and is often assessed through several key indicators, including:
- Blood Sugar Control: This involves maintaining stable blood glucose (sugar) levels. Proper regulation of blood sugar is essential for preventing conditions like diabetes and ensuring that cells receive the energy they need.
- Blood Pressure: Maintaining healthy blood pressure levels is crucial for cardiovascular health. High blood pressure can lead to heart disease and other complications.
- Cholesterol Levels: Healthy levels of cholesterol, specifically low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, are important for cardiovascular health. High LDL cholesterol is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
- Body Weight and Composition: Maintaining a healthy body weight and body composition is essential for metabolic health. Obesity and excess body fat can lead to various metabolic disorders.
- Insulin Sensitivity: Proper insulin function is necessary for regulating blood sugar. Insulin sensitivity refers to how well the body’s cells respond to insulin, and insulin resistance is a key factor in the development of type 2 diabetes.
- Inflammation: Chronic inflammation is linked to various metabolic disorders and can negatively impact overall health. Low-grade inflammation may be a sign of metabolic dysfunction.
- Liver Health: The liver plays a vital role in metabolism, including the processing of nutrients, detoxification, and the regulation of blood sugar. A healthy liver is essential for metabolic health.
Metabolic health can be influenced by genetics, lifestyle factors, and overall health habits. Poor dietary choices, lack of physical activity, and other lifestyle factors can contribute to metabolic dysfunction and increase the risk of conditions like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity.
Improving metabolic health often involves making positive lifestyle changes, such as adopting a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, managing stress, and getting adequate sleep. Monitoring and addressing the key indicators mentioned above can help individuals maintain or improve their metabolic health and reduce the risk of metabolic disorders and associated health problems.
