|TOM --- Please
refer to the ENERGY CATEGORIES sheet that was faxed to you, or you can use
the diagram above, however it is not as descriptive. I also urge you to
download BIA BASIC CLASS #1, print it and study it. It will help you understand what we
are talking about here. It is important that we establish a benchmark.
This is why it is important to have a valid first test (one that is done
on a normal day with a normal routine).
METABOLISM EFFICIENCY: (EM)
It is 56%. We would expect it to be worse, but it is high due to lack of nutrition. When you are sick, you don't feel like eating. It is the body's way of saving energy for healing instead of devoting it to digestion. 56% is in the Major Symptoms zone, which is certainly the case here.
The EM is our calculation of how well you are converting food into energy. Minimum acceptable is 55%. Deduct your EM from 100% and you have our calculation of the percentage of what you eat that is being turned into toxic waste. Your body has to waste energy to process this waste.
Notice that the zones below 55% are classified as degeneration zones instead of symptom zones. This is because our research indicates that as the toxicity accumulates faster than the body can carry it away it lays the foundation for weight management problems at best and degenerative disease at worst.
Keep in mind that the EM is experimental and is simply our scale of health. It may or may not indicate actual medical problems. For ease of weight management, you need to keep your Metabolism Efficiency (EM) above 75%.
We will be watching your EM on successive tests to make sure you are continuing to improve your conversion of food into energy. Wellness requires a high EM.
IMMUNE ENERGY (ER):
The ER is our measurement of your Reserve Energy, your resistance factor, your ability to heal. Minimum acceptable is 50% for average health and 65% for optimum weight management. The lower your ER, the longer it takes to stabilize your body chemistry and the more serious may be your condition. The lower your ER, the higher your EM needs to be in the future in order for you to have proper weight management and to experience wellness. Your ER must rise on successive tests if you are to experience an improvement in wellness.
Your ER is 57%. This is much better than we would expect from viewing your medical history. Your regular consumption of Noni and other nutritional regimes have obviously been of some benefit to you.
BIOLOGICAL AGE (BA):
Your Biological Age (BA) helps you see the impact that your Metabolism Efficiency (EM) and your Reserve Energy (ER) have on your "aging factor." What you want to see is a Biological Age that is the same or "younger" than your chronological age. The only way to reduce your Biological Age is to increase your Metabolism Efficiency (EM). This is why we will be watching your EM on successive tests.
Your BA is 70, 3 years older than your actual age. This shows the impact that your condition has made on your body chemistry, but it is much better than we would have expected.
ADVERSE RELATIONSHIPS (AR):
The Adverse Relationships (AR) represent balance, or endocrine communication channels. The brain needs proper feedback from the various glands and organs if it is to keep the body in proper synchronization and at a proper weight. The AR tell us how many of the 12 endocrine communication channels are broken. You want to keep your AR between 0-4, or no more than 1 for every 10% drop in your EM.
The higher the AR, the more difficult it is for the brain to keep the body in balance through the hormone system. The higher the AR, the deeper the problem has gone in the body and the more difficult it is to properly manage your weight and to correct the condition. The higher the AR, the longer it will take to bring balance back to the body.
A high AR can also be an indicator of mental or emotional stress playing a role in your symptoms and body chemistry, but only if the AR is out of balance, i.e., 1 AR for every 10% drop in EM.
Likewise, an abnormally low AR coupled with a low EM may mean emotional suppression exists and there is a chronic situation involving the emotional traumas of the past and present being the primary cause of present body chemistry and conditions.
Your AR are 6. This places you in the Major Interference zone. We would expect only 4-5 AR with an EM of 56%. This means that we expect to uncover severe emotional trauma as being the primary cause of present conditions and body chemistry. This means that we expect these issues to have to be ultimately dealt with in order to see an improvement in your condition. More on this later.
SPEED OF DECLINE (SD):
The Speed of Decline (SD) is our measurement of your aging factor. You want to keep this between 0-2 at all times.
An interesting formula to determine the approximate time required to stabilize the body chemistry is to multiply the AR x SD. The answer is the approximate number of months it may take to stabilize the body chemistry to help you feel good and look young for your age on a consistent basis.
Your SD is 2. This is good and better than we would have expected. Let's make sure it doesn't decline from here.
Let me know if you have any questions at this point. If not, we will next move on to
an analysis of your BIA so you can see why we will be making the
recommendations that we feel are required regarding lifestyle, dietary and nutritional recommendations to improve your body chemistry.
BIA REPORT - SUGARS:
Sugars are 2.2. That is 8 points lower than balanced (3.0), but this looks
better than it really is due to the high Salts/Sugar ratio (5.9). Salts
will raise the brix reading that generates the Sugars reading. The
Protein/Sugar ratio is also quite high (5.5). Protein waste will also
artificially raise the Sugars brix reading. Therefore, we actually have a
much lower Sugar reading than is apparent here. This means the brain
will be low on energy, so will the muscle cells.
It appears that if the high amounts of Noni
have been doing anything, they have been supporting the Sugars, which is
good, otherwise your energy level would have been zilch.
It will be more apparent on subsequent tests,
but we suspect we really have a Sugar of less than 1, which would mean a
20 point, or more, gap between Actual and Balanced. If we saw this we
would expect low Adrenal response, meaning susceptibility to
Normal people have pain but their Adrenal hormones are able to suppress it
to a tolerable level. The weaker your Adrenals are, the more pain you
Thus, we will be
concentrating on raising your Sugars. As your gap between balanced and
actual closes, your Adrenal response should be better, you should have
more energy and your muscles should experience less pain.
BIA REPORT - pH's:
Your urine pH (UpH) is extremely alkaline (7.4). It should be 6.1 to be in
balance with the rest of your BIA. This may mean the body is not
eliminating acidity, needs more exercise, has nutrient deficiencies and
will be sluggish.
Your saliva pH (SpH) is very acid (6.5). It
should be 6.7 to be in balance with the rest of your BIA. This may mean
that the acidity is building up in the body, which will cause all kinds of
muscle pain, hypersensitivity to pain, mineral deficiencies.
Because of the alkaline UpH over the acid SpH
profile, your situation is very serious. This type of pH arrangement is
the hardest to correct because it typifies an extremely chronic condition.
However, this is no reason to expect the worst. Being hard to correct
doesn't necessarily mean it is impossible. It does mean that you need to
frequent BIA monitors no more than 1 week apart for at least 30-days after
you begin the dietary and nutritional regime.
Your type of pH profile is typical of problems
at both ends of the body, meaning brain and central nervous system
challenges coupled with bones/muscle problems. To visualize this, replace
your UpH with an UP (alkaline) arrow and your SpH with a DOWN (acid)
arrow. See how the two arrows are pulling away from each other? Problems
are moving UP and problems are moving DOWN all at the same time. Bad
profile to have and one that must be corrected if wellness is at the end
of your tunnel.
BIA REPORT - SALTS:
Your Salts are very low (13). They should be 16 to be in balance. They are
actually much lower than it appears. They read higher due to the high
Prot/Salts ratio (5.5). Protein (NN/AN) waste will cause the conductivity
(Salts) to read higher than it should. Therefore, we expect that the Salts
are actually much lower than appears, similar to the Sugars situation.
This may mean there are several major and trace mineral deficiencies.
Correcting an under balanced Salts situation is not easy. It takes
patience and dedication to the regime. Part of our problem here may be an
excessive potassium intake from the Noni, suppressing sodium and magnesium
which will then affect the calcium and vitamin C.
This conductivity deficiency will also have an
effect on the brain, central nervous system and the ability of the muscles
to properly function.
BIA REPORT - CELL DEBRIS:
Your Cell Debris is a 1. This is too low. It should be a 4. This may mean
that your body is doing a poor job of creating new cells. This is not a
good sign and one that we will be watching to change in the future. It may
also simply be a function of the fact that you are underweight and are
under consuming food.
BIA REPORT - PROTEINS:
Your Urea (protein waste) is 12 (7+5). This is too high. It should be 8 to
be in balance. This may mean that you are losing valuable body mass and
that there is a Magnesium deficiency as previously stated. Losing body
mass would contribute to your muscle pain.

the possible tendencies that can be attributed to a BIA Profile such as
yours. The bad news is that the list is long. The good news is that these
are all things we will expect to disappear as your body chemistry
