Physiology and Metabolic Optimization


The Physiology and Metabolic Optimization consultation aims to identify and improve all factors that interfere with metabolism. By improving metabolism, it is possible to lose fat and increase muscle and bone mass.

In this consultation and using reliable and personalised methods, the patient is carefully assessed in regard to body composition, in order for out professionals to establish customised goals and plans, such as reducing fat mass, increasing hydration, increasing muscle mass, among others.

In conjunction with other professionals, a metabolic check-up (blood and urine) is performed, which allows for the creation of a more specific strategy for each individual. The aim is to combat nutritional deficiencies, imbalances in body composition, intestinal and liver malfunction, or hormonal imbalances, in order to recover altered functions, improve metabolic health and well-being in general.

In this area, it is essential to follow an approach tailored to each person's needs and goals. The specificities of the individual body composition, along with the different hormonal and metabolic patterns, dictate the best treatment route. This is the reason why results are seldom achieved with self-prescribed meal plans and behaviours that are generally accepted as effective or, on the other hand, why therapeutic recommendations for one patient may not be effective for another.
