  • Recognition of the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic responses to metabolic dysfunctions.
  • Recognition of the vitamin/mineral, mineral/mineral and vitamin/vitamin interrelationships in the nutritional recommendations.
  • Establishment of the link between the nutritional, neurological and endocrine systems, as determined by hair mineral patterns.
  • Development of metabolic supplements synergistically formulated for specific metabolic types.
  • Identification of endocrine interrelationships and their impact upon biochemical and nutritional status; recognition of specific nutritional influences upon the biochemical and endocrine systems.
