Balance and Strengthen Package

Achieve Metabolic Wellness Through Nutrition Excellence!

Studies estimate that over 88% of the population is metabolically unwell.  You are likely one of them.

This program will help you make the connection between nutrition, lifestyle habits, and metabolic health. In parallel to building solid nutritional foundations we will identify and address the underlying causes that lead to poor digestion, compromised detoxification, and blood sugar irregularities.

 I will not only help you discover the nutritional path that supports your unique biochemistry, but also guide you through actionable materials to implement healing protocols and lifestyle modifications, so that your body can digest and absorb nutrients from the food without unhealthy spikes in blood sugar, building fat and inflammation.

Once the foundational metabolic functions in digestion, detoxification and blood sugar control are restored, you will be able to reset the metabolism, strengthen the immunity, slow aging, and regain the vitality to continue building a successful career.

How The Program Works

The nutrition science made such incredible advances that give us the unprecedented opportunities in human history to have an impact on our health destiny. This program will guide you to achieve the nutritional excellence so you can fundamentally improve your metabolic health.

Improve Foundational Functions for Metabolic Health

In addition to the non-negotiable essentials, this program also focuses on three bodily functions, which are foundational to metabolic health:


Compromised digestive function not only results in nutritional imbalance and deficiency, but is also linked to almost every chronic disease. People rarely linked their skin issues, fatigue, brain fog, anxiety or joint pain to the gut but that is where many health concerns stemmed from. When we focus on healing the gut, the entire body shifts for the better. Our health starts in our gut!

Blood Sugar Regulation

Blood sugar irregularities are one of the most common driving factors of being metabolic unwell. It results in cravings, overweight, mood swing, and fatigue. It causes inflammation and blood vessel damages. It also leads to adrenal and thyroid dysfunctions, and cascades all the way down to sex hormone imbalance.


We have to face it: we are living in a toxic world. We are constantly bombarded by “hidden hazards” and toxins and chemicals, as well as mental toxins. Nowadays more than ever we need to support and boost our body’s ability to flush out the toxins, refresh and regain efficiency, and increase the innate self-healing powers.

Taking a Deep Dive Into Your Health History

We start with a thorough review of the health history and concerns, then we collect and assess the personal evidences using various assessment and tracking tools, analyze it within the Functional framework and gain a deep understanding of your current health status. This will guide us to create a personalized nutrition program that supports your unique physiology and suits your lifestyle.

Proper Nourishment is Key!

We will focus on the food quality and bio-individuality of the diet. You will be guided through a process to transition to a whole food based diet packed with variety and flavor, supporting your unique metabolic type. You will know exactly what food to go for and what food to avoid, how to refine the macronutrients ratio to support stable blood sugar level and lasting energy, and incorporate the strategies to optimize micronutrients balance.

Dig Deeper Using Functional Lab Works

This program will take one step further by using well-chosen functional lab testing to get deeper insights about how the body functions and underlying mechanism. This allows us to identify

  • Silent food sensitivities
  • Digestive organ dysfunctions
  • Compromised gut integrity
  • Nutrient deficiency
  • Reduced detoxification capacity
  • Unhealthy microbiome
  • Gut infection

Implementing Remedies in Your Day to Day Life

Within this program, you will have the opportunities to choose the safe and effective natural protocols and therapies to improve digestive functions, repair the gut, eliminate the gut infection, and cultivate a friendly gut flora.

You will be guided to implement various remedies to ensure all routes of elimination are open: kidney, intestine, lung, and sweat glands, and use nutritional therapies as well as supportive therapies to enhance detoxification.

You will also learn how to monitor the blood glucose change throughout the day, how to create a low-glycemic-impact eating plan, how to use dietary habits and therapeutic nutrients to support blood sugar regulation and achieve metabolic flexibility, so your body can effectively burn fats.

Program Questions

I acknowledge that every person has different capacity to process information, adapt changes and embrace new life, so my coaching program does not put a specific time limit upfront. We will have 6 coaching sessions to meet together, with a series of actions to take between every two sessions. You can proceed at your pace.

That being said, to create a rhythm and keep the momentum, I highly recommend to have coaching sessions every 1~2 weeks at the early phase of the program, every 2~3 weeks in the later phase of the program. So you can expect to complete the program within 6~7 months.

This program isn’t about following a cookie-cutter diet and generic wellness recommendations. Just like your unique fingerprint and genetic makeup, your nutritional need is also one of a kind. My program provides a framework, not a formula.

A Formula tells you to follow a very challenging program when the conditions are perfect. It consists of strict and largely unnecessary nutrition rules.

A Framework provides both structures and flexibility that enable you to create your own dietary approach and come up meaningful, step-by-step change that you can actually do in real life. We will work together to explore and find what will work for you. So each client received completely individualized protocols.

The abundance of foods is a celebration of nature’s gifts. The true value of food is not only in nourishing the body, but also nourishing the mind and bringing joy to the life. The last thing we want to introduce to our diet is dogmatic rules and feeling of being taken away. My program always focuses on what you can ADD to your current plate. I will help you explore the options to improve the food accessibility and varieties, so you can use real food crowd out the factory made junk.

During our time together through various assessment methods along with lab testing we will discover the foods that best help you achieve your health goals and possibly the ones that may hinder you. So sometimes it is necessary to temporarily implement a therapeutic diet or elimination diet. Once you restore the nutrient imbalance and correct the underlying dysfunctions, you will find your cravings will disappear.

Using functional lab testing and various assessment tools, we will have more clues to investigate the hidden stressors and identify the healing opportunities. As we start to implement the targeted therapy and apply wellness principles, your body will be given the chance to heal.

Once we are able to restore the underlying imbalance and correct the dysfunctions in the foundational metabolic functions of digestion, detoxification and blood sugar control, the entire body shifts for the better. You will start to feel difference and notice significant improvement in your metabolic health, with more energy, weight under control, less craving, clear thinking, digestive comfort, reduced inflammation, less mood swings and resilience to handle stress.

People have different ways to process information, adapt changes, and overcome barriers. Some clients start to feel difference in just a few weeks once they strictly follow the protocols and recommendations. Healing is process and it never happens overnight. If you trust this process, respect your physiological and psychological needs, observe how you look, feel and perform, respond to the biological cues, and work with your coach closely, you will experienced some level of progress and tangible results very quickly.

Ideal weight is a direct manifestation of good health. There are multiple factors contributing to the weight problem, such as nutrient imbalance, gut dysbiosis, toxin overload, blood sugar dysregulation, insulin resistance, stress, lack of sleep, inflammatory foods, poor diet, hormone imbalance, etc. If these underlying causes are not addressed, the ideal weight can not be achieved and maintained in the long run.

Those outdated thinking of “calories in calories out”, “eat less move more” is proven to be ineffective. Once we remove reactive foods and reduce the inflammation, the fluid retention is reduced. Once we enhance the metabolic flexibility, the body is able to use stored energy (fat) as fuel. So weight loss is often experienced as a byproduct, when the body starts healing and returns to a place of balance, but with greater ease than you solely focus on weight loss.

Once you eat clean and healthy whole foods, once you figure out the foods and macronutrient ratios that are right for your metabolic type, your body gets connected instinctively with the right amount of food to eat, so you always get satisfied with the right amount of calories. Your body will gradually shift toward the nature weight and stay there for the rest of your life.

Food Sensitivity Screening: screen for hidden inflammatory responses to 170 different foods and food-chemicals.

Metabolic Wellness Profiles: measure key metabolic markers of Digestion, Detoxification and Oxidative Stress. 

Gut Function & Pathogen Screening: measure the markers related to inflammation in the gut, immunity in the gut, pancreatic enzyme sufficiency, gut integrity, the presence of pathogens in GI track, including H Pylori and other bacteria, parasites, worms and viruses.

This program provides the opportunity to do three functional lab tests at no additional cost:

  • Food Sensitivity Screening,
  • Metabolic Wellness Profiles,
  • Gut Function & Pathogen Screening.

If other tests are highly suggested during the investigation of you case, or you wish to do additional tests, you will be able to order them at additional cost.

The medical approach is to diagnose and treat specific diseases, so the panel of conventional lab tests is used to look for established disease patterns.

Functional lab testing provides an evaluation of an organ’s functional value or its capacity to fulfill its physiological function. Although functional lab tests cover a number of quantitative diagnostic procedures, they are particularly useful in avoiding or reversing chronic conditions and optimizing wellness.

Functional lab testing may include blood, stool, urine, saliva or hair samples to provide information about a variety of systems including hormonal, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy production, metabolic, nutritional and others.

It provides deeper understanding of why dysfunction is occurring, and conduces effective strategies to restore balance.
