General useful information regarding Metabolic Balance®
Metabolic Balance® was developed by Wolf Funfack, Dr. med., a physician of internal and nutritional medicine, in collaboration with Silvia Bürkle, nutritional scientist and food engineer. The program is offered generally through consultancies composed of but not limited to physicians, homeopaths, nutritionists, spas, and fitness centers. Metabolic Balance, Inc., is not a medical organization.
Neither Metabolic Balance, Inc., nor coworkers nor Metabolic Balance® coaches are permitted to dispense medical advice or diagnoses. They merely offer information, guidance, and tips pertaining to the Metabolic Balance® methodology for weight management and metabolic regulation. The Metabolic Balance® program does not replace the advice of a physician or replace routine medical care—particularly for symptoms requiring long-term medical supervision. Neither is the program intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. The Metabolic Balance® program has not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration.
Pregnant women and nursing mothers are not permitted to participate in the Metabolic Balance® program. Persons with severe renal or hepatic insufficiency are also excluded from participation. Persons under medical treatment because of weight issues or who are taking physician-prescribed medications for illnesses should first consult with their physicians about participation in Metabolic Balance®.
If weight reduction is inadvisable because of illness or trauma, a physician should decide on participation in Metabolic Balance®. In such cases, a physician should always be consulted prior to anyone’s beginning a weight-loss program.
