What Is A Healthy Metabolism

People with a healthy metabolism can easily and efficiently turn air and food into electricity, rather than storing food as fat.

Light is the primary driver of your metabolism and hormones, but we still need to have the building blocks in place to be able to regenerate and repair ourselves. 

Making energy or electricity happens in your mitochondria which are the power plants of your cells. You need to get plenty of light and feed your mitochondria properly and at the right time. 

The more mitochondria you have the more efficiently they operate and the better you feel.

Plenty of mitochondria (cellular batteries) working at full capacity means you have energy, strength and resilience.

if you’re feeling stressed, depressed, sick, weak, or foggy. The first step is to figure out what you’re doing that’s spoiling your energy production

It is much easier to stop doing things that make you weak than start doing things that make you strong

Healthy Hormones

Hormones are chemical messengers in the body and there are key hormones I help you to understand and balance. Healthy Metabolism

  • Thyroid
  • Leptin
  • Insulin
  • Cortisol 
  • Melatonin 
  • Testosterone 
  • Estrogen 
  • Progesterone

Most people who are on HRT (men and women)  are not on the optimum dose, form or regime. Or they have been mis-informed about HRT and think it is harmful

Many people struggle with their weight or blood sugar because they are  leptin resistant and often have never heard of leptin or know how to re-set leptin. It is because light, food and temperature affect leptin. Healthy Metabolism

Macronutrients In A Nutshell

You need the right amounts of healthy natural protein such as meat, not highly processed inflammatory protein.

You also need the right balance of healthy essential stable natural fats such as animal fats, good quality olive oil not cheap inflammatory factory produced seed oils.

Your body can make all the glucose (carbohydrate) you need so there is no ‘essential carbohydrate’ but this doesn’t mean you need to be ketogenic all year round. It is very useful to strategically add the right carbs at the right time.

Vital Vitamins | Healthy Metabolism

You need the right amounts of fat-soluble vitamins such as A D K and E are the cargo vessels that carry minerals to where they need to go.

Vitamins A D K E is especially critical now that most people are deficient in many essential minerals.

Without those vitamins, your body can’t fold proteins to build cells; it can’t move electricity to carry messages; and it can’t build enzymes to generate energy in your mitochondria.

if you supplement with one vitamin  you are going to need to add another as supplementing with vitamin D alone can disrupt your calcium levels. 

It is also important to get the vitamins in the right form. For example P5P is the correct form of B6. 

Mighty Minerals

To enable the wonders of life, your cells a supply of ‘large’ macro minerals (such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur) large as in you need a larger amount.

You also need trace or ‘small’ minerals which you need much less of (including iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, and selenium)

Trace minerals act mainly as catalysts for enzymes so that you can make energy. Many of them have important antioxidant activity as well.

There are over 50 ultra-trace or ‘tiny’ minerals which you extremely small amounts and that is why people use fulvic acid or shilajit

Because many minerals work together and too much of one of them may increase your need for another. For example if you take in too much zinc you are going to affect your copper levels.

Like in the workplace…… things don’t function smoothly or at all if you have too many directors and not enough managers or laborers or vice versa.
