Whenever most people hear the name Francis Pottenger, they automatically think of Pottenger's Cat Studies. Indeed, the cat studies were most valuable for their contributions to understanding the influences of certain nutrients, or lack thereof, on processes of growth, reproduction, and degenerative conditions. Probably of equal importance, though not as widely known, Pottenger carefully delineated in his Symptoms of Visceral Disease (FN2), the relationship of nutrition to the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system. Further he illuminated the autonomic influences as essential components in defining metabolic individuality. From his valid and reproducible research (FN3), we have extrapolated many of his findings and built them into our metabolic testing protocol. Dr. Francis Pottenger is truly the father of the neuro-endocrine aspect of Metabolic Typing.

Eating for your metabolic type is not quite so easy to use - it requires a series of tests to determine type - but the consistent results make it worth the extra trouble. In order to efficiently determine each patient's metabolic type, Bill Wolcott and I have developed a series of tests which can be completed in one office visit. Before the visit, the client is asked to complete a questionnaire which includes both physical and psychological characteristics which are linked to metabolic type. In the office, we take physiological readings, including blood glucose level, pulse, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and several others. In addition, we ask for the patient's subjective experience of well being, energy level, hunger, etc. We then give the patient a high glucose drink. We do this in order to challenge the system, and measure its reactions. We repeat the physiological tests and the subjective questions at specific intervals over the course of the visit. The entire process takes about two hours, and the results, combined with our extensive research data, allow us to determine each patient's metabolic type, with 80% accuracy on the first visit. Further testing, including a protein challenge I have recently developed, helps us to classify the 20% of patients who yield ambiguous results from the standard series of tests (see Additional Information at the end of the article: 3).

The body’s normal acid-alkaline balance is maintained when each separate area manages to functions within its own ideal pH range. This coordinated balance is accomplished by a miraculously complex system of checks and balances. The body’s organs, tissues and fluids communicate and cooperate in this process. Thanks to this natural balancing act, we can adapt to normal environmental changes in temperature, pH, light etc. The first priority of all body fluids and organ systems (cardiovascular, digestive etc.) is to compensate for any changes that might threaten the critically narrow alkaline range of the blood that is essential for survival. When outside influences become extreme, the body requires additional assistance from us, just as we would “help out” with protective clothing when temperatures fall.

As we all know, oxygen plays a central role in the oxidation process, the intracellular creation of energy in the form of ATP. Oxygen is alkaline forming in the blood, while carbon dioxide - which is produced as a by-product of the oxidation process - is acid forming. The ratio between them is intimately connected with maintaining the optimal blood pH of 7.46, which is the primary goal of the nutritional protocols of Metabolic Typing. At this pH level, all of the systems of the body are encouraged to function harmoniously. If there is an excess of oxygen (or deficit of CO2) the blood will be overly alkalized. Conversely, if there is an excess of carbon dioxide (or deficit of oxygen) the blood will be overly acidified.

This observation is used during the Metabolic Typing testing protocol to help determine an individual's Metabolic Type. After taking a series of baseline readings, we administer a modified glucose challenge drink (containing significantly less glucose than the medical glucose tolerance test, as well as some added potassium). This drink is acid forming to the two Oxidative types (Fast and Slow Oxidizers), thereby increasing their blood levels of CO2 and decreasing their levels of oxygen. This has the effect of increasing the respiration rate, as the body tries to compensate by breathing in more oxygen, while decreasing the ability to hold the breath, due to a deficit of oxygen. Individuals who demonstrate these traits during the testing procedure (determined by comparing the baseline readings with readings taken at a specified time after ingesting the modified glucose challenge drink) will generally, therefore, be one of the two Oxidative types.
