What is Balance For Good?

Balance For Good is a therapeutic lifestyle program. A “therapeutic lifestyle” means making choices every day that will enhance your health and help prevent disease, enabling you to achieve a full, healthy life. This program is based on one developed by Metagenics, Inc, which has published data on its benefits in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Balance For Good is based on extensive scientific research demonstrating that many chronic diseases can be prevented and treated by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Therapeutic lifestyle programs are now recommended by leading health organizations as a primary therapy for those with many of the conditions listed above. (see *) Adopting habits of living that are healthy may delay the onset of illness in old age—and increase your years of good health and full function.

Fundamentals of Balance For Good

The path to optimal health begins with:

  • Knowledge of a healthy lifestyle
  • Balanced eating habits
  • Regular physical activity
  • Appropriate nutritional supplementation with condition-specific nutrients
  • Emotional management / stress reduction for balance and to lessen the impact of adrenal dysfunction
  • Sleep for proper mind/body function

The end result is a program that not only helps control premature aging, but also helps to prevent and cure chronic disease and prolong vitality.

Getting Started

First, you need to know your current health status. A variety of assessments may be done, including a measurement of your body composition (ratio of body fat to muscle) and cellular health. Labwork will also need to be done.

Perhaps the most powerful tool in controlling the aging process and restoring vitality is to improve your muscle to fat ratio. Knowing your weight on the scale and even your BMI can be misleading and cause little or no improvement with diet and exercise. Appropriate nutrients help your body work from the inside, so only moderate physical activity can be used to achieve your goals.
