Francis Pottenger, Snr's classic book "Symptoms of visceral disease, a study of the vegatative nervous system in tis relationship to clinical medicine (1919)". Was the work that founded the idea of Autonomic Imbalance in MT
If i havent posted this link before, this is well worth a read. Although its not a book, this is an excellent 'core' read IMO. www.distance-healer.com/84.html#case17 . Its long, but covers alot of different theories about MT into one well written discussion. The only thing it lacks is any discussion about Dr Paul Ecks work.
This overview from the Revici Medical Foundation explains the fundamentals of Revici's discoveries on how lipids can affect cell membranes (i.e. make them more / less permeable) to cause cellular anabolic and catabolic imbalances through anaerobic and aerobic metabolism, and how they can lead to intracellular acidity and alkalinity It also discusses how these cellular states correspond with diurnal changes in blood alkalinity and acidity, which is a key link to how different metabolic types can be predominantly anabolic or catabolic because of their blood pH imbalances (e.g. parasympathetics and slow oxidisers have excessive alkali blood, which correlates with greater cellular acidity anabolism / anaeorbism).
This paper is also worth a read, as it discusses how blood potassium levels were Revici's primary method for determining cellular anabolic and catabolic imbalances. Basically, when potassium was trapped inside cells, it was a key indicator of an anabolic state of them.
This document is also something i have posted before, but it is so excellent at explaining physiological tests for Electrolyte Imbalance, Anabolic / Catabolic Imbalance, Carbo-Oxidative Imbalance, ANS Imbalance, and Acid / Alkali Imbalance, as well as showing you how to test for them yourself at home very cheaply, that it really is worth re-posting here as another 'core' read for those interested in developing a thorough understanding of their metabolic profile.
This method is the one used by Guy Schenker and, from what i've read on testing methods, is pretty much 95% the method adopted by other metabolic typing systems from a clinical testing perspective, such as Harold Kristal's approach (its woth reading the Appendix in Kristal's excellent book and tallying it with this information here to get an even more thorough understanding of these tests). Schenker does also use questionnaires but, like Kristal, places much more importance on the clinical test results.
For a more logical, laymans description on how to go through the testing procedures, see here:
For those trying to figure out which of Schenker's supplements tally with the HealthExcel / Ultra Life ones, this is what i have figured out so far:
- Oxygenic B = Multi Com 3 / Synergy Com 3 - Oxygenic K = Oxi Com 1 - Oxygenic G = Oxi Com 2 - Oxygenic D = CataPlus - Oxygenic D Plus = Liqui-G-Plus - Oxygenic A = Anaplus - Oxygenic A Plus = Liqui-Mag-S - Complex P = Paraplex - Complex S = Symplex
As for the Formula ES and Formula EI products (for treating electrolyte stress and electrolyte insufficiency respectively) i'm not sure what the Ultra Life equivalents are. Formula ES is discussed here www.royalrife.com/0597.html, and Formula EI is discussed here www.royalrife.com/0599.html.
Also, in the article it talks about lots of different supplements for the many different types of possible acid / alkali imbalances (6 in total), and i have no idea how the Ultra Life supplements fit with those.
Maybe Eric can enlighten us on those ...?

This is MT advisor level 4 stuff. I could regurgitate what I have read and what I have been taught; but the truth is that I have only had (I believe) one client that I worked with that needed direct electrolyte support; and that case was tricky!
I will check in with Bill and report back at some point.
