The effects of diet therapy supporting the treatment of the aforementioned conditions, with the use of metabolic balance® plans, are really good and supported by clinical studies. Many illnesses are completely or significantly prevented. Often, the patient’s condition is improved to such extent that it is possible for the physician to withdraw medication or reduce their dosage. The cases of PCOS and hormonal infertility often result in a natural, healthy pregnancy.
How the metabolic balance® plan is applied
Each metabolic balance® plan is prepared individually by the medical team at the Isen Institute, based on detailed interviews and analysis of 36 blood tests parameters presenting: the work of the liver, kidneys, pancreas, thyroid; lipid balance, sugar values, acidification of the body, microelements, as well as the occurrence of possible inflammatory processes.
The choice of food products does not follow the calculation of their caloric value, fat, protein or carbohydrate content. Foods selection is solely determined by their influence on your body. This stimulates healthy metabolism, insulin secretion, and hormonal regulation.
In the first two-day phase, we prepare our body for the following change in dietary habits. Then, during the strict phase the body changes to a new, healthy way of nutrition. Big positive changes in the well-being appear quickly. For patients who do not want to lose weight – this phase lasts 14 days; patients who wish to lose weight – this phase lasts till you reach the target weight.
In the next phases – mild and maintenance – we carefully test food that was previously excluded. This way, by observing weight and well-being, you find an optimal, perfectly matching style of nutrition. The achieved success is strengthened by further adhering to already adopted basic principles of nutrition and physical activity.
