Metabolic typing is a very central concept in nutritional balancing science. However, metabolic typing is not familiar to most people because modern allopathic medicine does not focus on it. Many ancient healing systems embraced it, however.
The idea behind of metabolic typing is that o en people display symptoms, illnesses, and hundreds of body traits in specific groupings or patterns.
By identifying the pattern or metabolic types, one can immediately know a lot about a person, in most cases. Astute physicians have observed this for centuries. Here are some well-known examples of metabolic typing:
1. Choleric, or irritable.
2. Sanguine, or content.
3. Phlegmatic, or sluggish.
4. Melancholic, or depressed.
