Become a Metabolic Balance Practitioner

The Metabolic Balance program is a personalised nutrition system that devises a food list from an individual’s blood results, health goals, medical history, current medication, body measurements and food preferences.

Metabolic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, cancer, dementia, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and so on are all increasing in our society with an heightened recognition of the role nutrition and lifestyle choices play in their aetiology.

Devising personalised meal plans and food lists is a genuinely complex and time-consuming task for practitioners. By introducing Metabolic Balance to your practice you have access to a scientifically validated method trusted by doctors and practitioners around the world to help resolve and improve metabolic conditions. You are able to easily and quickly provide your clients with an individualised and effective food only program so they get excellent results and you are able to sustain a successful natural health practice.

Metabolic Balance was devised by Dr. Wolf Funfack and Sylvia Bürkle following over 20 years of research in Germany. The Metabolic Balance software program is then tailored to each individual country.

The principles of Metabolic Balance were developed based on the findings of medical research studies, personal research, and Dr Funfack’s clinical experience. This complex program gets continually refined and adjusted to reflect current developments in nutritional science.

Today Metabolic Balance is widespread. It is well-known throughout Germany and is now available from professional practitioners in over 30 countries around the world. The basic concept of individuality has not changed since its original creation. That individuality covers the nutrition plans, the personal supervision, and the joy the participants experience when the success of Metabolic Balance begins to work for them.

There are numerous books (in English and German) outlining the program and a 2010 research paper.

  • Metabolic Balance – Nutrition basics: Introduction to the success program by Dr.med Wolf Funfack available on Amazon
  • Metabolic Balance: Your Personalized Nutrition Roadmap by Dr.med Wolf Funfack available on Amazon
  • Meffert C, Gerdes N (2010) Program adherence and effectiveness of a commercial nutrition program: the metabolic balance study. J Nutr Metab. 2010;2010:197656. doi: 10.1155/2010/197656. Epub 2010 Dec 21. Available on Pubmed.

Metabolic Balance is a strictly practitioner only program in Kenya & East Africa.

All practitioners must have a minimum of a diploma in higher education or preferably a degree in Naturopathy, Nutritional Medicine or Medicine. Other medical and natural therapy qualifications may be considered as appropriate and would be assessed on an individual basis.

As a Metabolic Balance practitioner, you have access to the online portal to generate the personalised menu plan and food list for your clients.

There is no software needed to be installed, managed or backed-up on your laptop. You simply need access to the internet.

Metabolic Balance is exclusively available as a 2-6 month package from a certified practitioner. The package includes the personalised food plan and 5 to 10 coaching consultations as a minimum. Depending on the health goal of the client or how much weight needs to be released, this support period can be extended as needed.

Metabolic Balance has a worldwide reputation that means clients regularly seek out and contact their nearest practitioner to access the program.

Each Metabolic Balance practitioner has an account with the approved, pathology lab and collection service affiliated with Metabolic Balance. This also provides access to the agreed rates for other nutritionally important pathology tests which are valuable for clients.

Metabolic Balance requires 36 blood parameters for generating the plan. The test panels required are

  • Full Blood Count
  • E/LFT
  • C-reactive protein
  • Amylase/Lipase
  • Creatinine Kinase
  • Iron studies
  • Thyroid Function Tests

It is a completely whole food program with no processed foods or supplements included. Clients receive a detailed list of their ideal protein sources, vegetables, and fruit. If a food is listed on their plan they can eat it, if it is not listed they can’t (only for phase 1 & 2, new food introduction occurs on phase 3).  Traditional Kenyan, African and Indian foods are part of the database.

It is very easy for a client to follow given the right motivation and support. Clients must be willing to eat whole food only (fresh vegetables, fruit, good sources of whole protein, healthy fats and starches) with no gimmicks or meal replacement products.

It requires commitment but once on the program, clients report that it's easy to follow and means they don't have to think at all about what is or isn’t healthy for them. The quick results also ensure ongoing commitment.

There are no products/supplements associated with Metabolic Balance at all. It’s simply a highly personalised food list and menu plan.

Results for clients are dependent on adherence to the program and effective coaching and guidance from their personal Metabolic Balance practitioner. Naturally there are no guarantees however individuals typically experience improvements in their health within the first week of commencing the program.  

It is an extremely effective way to restore metabolic health and lose weight. The program simply allows the body to get into balance and release weight naturally for long term holistic mind and body health.

Metabolic Balance is a holistic well being program that naturally restores overall balance to the body. It has be shown to be highly beneficial for inflammatory conditions including metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular health, hormone balance, skin health and mental health problems. Weight loss naturally results from improved overall balance and health.

There is no expensive equipment or set up costs beyond a good set of scales, a stadiometer (height measure), a tape measure, access to the internet and a printer to print off your client’s plans.

Metabolic Balance may be offered to clients in personalised one-on-one sessions, online or in a group setting by a certified practitioner.
