We offer a programme called Metabolic Balance because quite simply, it WORKS. Metabolic Balance is a 3 month nutritional programme that considers hormones, circadian rhythms, inflammatory markers and works to reset the body's metabolic rate. It improves metabolic markers, it improves quality of life scores and the key point is that people do not rebound, but rather gain a much greater sense of body awareness that means that metabolic balance becomes a way of life.
The true test of a good weight loss programme is not where you are at the end of it, but rather whether the weight loss has been sustained 2 years after finishing the programme.
As we enter menopause, we enter a state of inflammation, increasing insulin resistance and oxidative stress. Weight can suddenly become much harder to shift and this can lead to health problems. This is why it is so important to reduce insulin resistance and inflammation as soon as weight gain starts to become a problem.
The “Study for evaluation of the metabolic balance®-programme” looked at 851 patients and found that:
The programme costs £800 which includes the the personalised programme, 2 blood tests, and eight online appointments.
You will be sent a questionnaire to complete and some measurements to take. You then attend the laboratory for a comprehensive blood test, following which your personalised plan will be created.
Pre programme: Your practitioner will call you to discuss if this is the right programme for you. If you would like to go ahead, the timetable will be something like the following:
1st appt : your practitioner will go through your personalised plan and set a start date
2nd appt: 1 week after starting plan

5th appt: 2 weeks later (i.e. six weeks after starting plan)
6th appt: 2 weeks later (i.e. eight weeks after starting plan)
7th appt: 4 weeks later (i.e. twelve weeks after starting plan) our nurse will arrange for another blood test to see how your metabolic markers have changed
8th appt: your practitioner will discuss the results with you
