Biochemical Individuality

The current health, fitness and weight loss market tends to follow a “one size fits all” approach. This method assumes that if you follow that particular diet or exercise regime to the letter, then the outcome will be successful for everyone who uses the approach, regardless of size, shape, age or gender.


This philosophy does not appreciate that each person is unique, and fails to recognise an important concept of Functional Nutrition termed Biochemical Individuality.


Biochemical Individuality was first recognised by the late biochemist Dr Roger Williams and realises that we are all slightly different internally (and externally) from one another, and therefore react differently from person to person to specific dietary or lifestyle interventions.



Furthermore, the recent mapping of the Human Genome and the developing science of Nutrigenomics, only increases the need to understand our unique genetic blueprint and how this may effect our health, fitness and wellbeing. 


What this means in terms of say weight loss, is that a diet that works for one person may not be successful for another.


Failure to appreciate our "Biochemical Individuality" may be a major factor why some people consistently fail using specific dietary, fitness or health interventions.
