Without knowing your metabolic type, you are guessing as to what foods and supplements you should take. Dr. Kelley’s Do-It-Yourself Book “SELF TEST FOR THE DIFFERENT METABOLIC TYPES” provides a method and explains how you can develop a personalized nutritional program that gives you the results you want. A person may be following a program of the best foods and supplements, and plenty of exercise – but how does he or she know that those really are the best foods for them? Each of us is different and has a different metabolism.
Many of the worlds’ leading scientists including, for instance, biochemist Dr. Roger Williams, author of many excellent and well-known books such as You are Extraordinary, and Nobel Prize Winning Physicist, Dr. Linus Pauling, have proven this through their own research.
The Autonomic nervous system is that part of the brain and nervous system that carries on the functions of the body that we have very little or no conscious control over. The autonomic nervous system controls such activities as our heartbeat, respiration and digestion.
The autonomic nervous system regulates the basic life sustaining functions of the body such as the turning on and off of glands and organs, maintaining the acid/alkaline balance of the blood, saliva, and urine, digestion of food, balancing glandular functions, turning the cells on and off, and stimulating and retarding the body and its parts. The autonomic nervous system is the master regulator of metabolism. It determines how efficiently and effectively the body uses food, water and air.
The autonomic nervous system consists of two divisions. One division is called the sympathetic nervous system and the other division is called the parasympathetic nervous system.Each of these two divisions sends messages in the form of electric current to the different parts of the body. There is a nerve from each of the divisions to each part of the body.
The Sympathetic Nervous System
The sympathetic nervous system sends messages that in general accelerate or speed up our activities.
The Parasympathetic Nervous System
The parasympathetic nervous system sends messages that in general retard or slow down our activities.
The autonomic nervous system plays a major role in the classifications of the metabolic types. The twelve metabolic types have been arranged into three groups:
Group A metabolizers are classed as Types One, Four, Six, and Eleven. These types have very strong or dominant sympathetic nervous systems. These types have very strong functions of the brain, pineal, anterior pituitary, parathyroid, thyroid, and adrenal medulla glands; heart, bone, muscle and connective tissue, kidneys, gonads (ovaries or testes), and uterus or prostate. Their muscles are usually quite well developed and show good muscle tone. Their hearts normally beat a little fast. Constipation is an ever-present plague. Frequently insomnia is a problem. Tension, hyperactivity and drive are their plight.
Sympathetics do not digest foods from their diet well. Actually, they digest less that 10% of their food intake. They assimilate about 40% of the digested intake. These supposedly vegetarian types do not like heavy meats as they cannot digest them well. These types do best on fruit and carbohydrates. If you go to a health food cafeteria bar you will see a few selections of green salads and about 20 feet of deserts. Sympathetic metabolizers will take a few spoons full of vegetables and 5 or 6 deserts. All one has to do to determine a sympathetic metabolizer is go to a cafeteria and observe those who load up on sweets. These sweets are easily digested and assimilated by them and feed their dominant glands and organs that give them their outstanding energy. Then they hop and jump around like a Ubangee Chief at a White Missionary Boiling.
Group B metabolizers are classed as Types Two, Five, Seven, Twelve. The parasympathetic nervous system dominates these types. These parasympathetic metabolizers have strong function of the posterior pituitary, hypothalamus, parotid, sublingual (saliva) and adrenal cortex glands; stomach, spleen, duodenum, pancreas, liver, small intestine, colon, lymph and immune systems. Their Digestion is very good. They are not constipated, but to the contrary, tend toward loose stools and diarrhea. They have poor muscle tone. They are in general lethargic, slow, and fall asleep easily. They usually have a good reserve of strength.
Parasympathetic metabolizers can digest most anything (about 90% of their food intake). And they can assimilate about 80%. However, their glands and organs responsible for utilizing these nutrients (their get-up-and-go) are often and usually weak, defective and exhausted. Therefore, they do not utilize but 10% of what they assimilate. Then the major problems of the parasympathetic metabolizer focus and revolve around “storage” of these assimilated foods in form of overweight. It is most difficult or almost impossible for them to retrieve the stored nutrients. Taking the recommended nutrients fro these metabolizers does help a great deal but weight is their dilemma.
Group C metabolizers are classified as Types Three, Eight, Nine and Ten. These types have balanced autonomic nervous systems. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems work well together in a normal balance of glandular activity and metabolic function. Group C metabolizers have balanced metabolisms, which are neither strongly meat eating nor strongly vegetarian – they fall in the middle. They are both vegetarian and meat eating. Metabolizers in this category have the greatest freedom in what they can eat. Indeed, they enjoy and thrive equally on foods from both the vegetarian and meat eating categories. The balanced metabolizers burn their food neither too fast nor too slow. This is on of the reasons they do equally well on all varieties of food.
Balanced metabolizers generally need such nutritional support as Vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, Niacinamide, Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, PABA, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Manganese, Chromium and Zinc. Each of the balanced Types Three, Five, Nine and Ten needs these supplements but each type needs different amounts and in different ratios. They also require extra amounts of Hydrochloric Acid and Pancreatic Enzymes.
The balanced metabolizers can suffer from the conditions and disorders of either the vegetarian groups or the carnivore groups of metabolizers. They are prone to the following conditions and have the following characteristics, all of course, in moderation and generally not to the extreme.
This is what we call the Metabolic type spiral. It shows all 12 metabolic types and their relationship to each other, their sympathetic or their parasympathetic dominance and their metabolic efficiency.
Dr. Kuhn has been teaching this course here in America and abroad via Webex, during the past few years. With over 30 years of “personal” experience on Metabolic Therapy, he brings to the table a unique teaching perspective.
In 1985, while on a Metabolic program himself, Dr. Kuhn enrolled in Dr. Kelley's final Metabolic Science class at The International Health Institute in Dallas, Texas. Having already attended three other Universities, searching for “answers” to his myriad of health problems, he was anxious to help spread the word about Dr. Kelley's research. Sponsored by the “WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION” at the time, Dr. Kelley's school was by far the most advanced of its kind being offered in the WORLD. To quote Linda Clark of the prestigious PRICE - POTTENGER Foundation: “I consider Dr. Kelley's work the MOST IMPORTANT NUTRITIONAL DISCOVERY IN THE LAST 150 YEARS!” This ongoing course is currently offered on an 8 week interval, with classes scheduled for 1 day per week, normally on weekends, running from 1 to 2 hours. Minimum requirements for this course are as follows: B.S. degree in a hard or soft Science, with an emphasis in Biology, Biochemistry, Endocrinology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Physiology, or Psychology. If your Bachelors is in another field, you can still confer with Dr. Kuhn, as he will check your transcripts for consideration.
The course fee is $1,500, which can be paid in advance, or half in the beginning and the other half before the course ends.
This includes the Metabolic Manual, which is almost 300 pages in length. Dr. Kuhn's 3rd book “Metabolic Mission,” the Metabolic Self Test and Dr. Kelley's book “Cancer, Curing the Incurable” will also be included in the overall class fee.
For more information about the course, please contact Dr. Kuhn. A syllabus is available on request.
