William D. Kelley, D.D.S., M.S. 1982
Kelley developed his Self-Test for the Different Metabolic Types in the
1960's to help bridge the gap of research to practical application. He
realized that the overall state of health of this nation could no
longer be maintained acceptable unless the nutritional needs of the
people were brought into immediate and sharp focus.
(physician or patient) knows what a well-balanced meal is. Physicians
have not been trained along these disciplines, nor do they have the
time or inclination to educate themselves in these areas. In order to
make the most efficient use of research data, it must be related and
applied directly to each individual to meet his specific needs. The
problem then arises as to which data is significant for each patient.
Dr. Kelley had to develop a system to accomplish this. It was decided
that the most practical system would be an extensive questionnaire: Dr.
Kelley's Self-Test for the Different Metabolic Types.
The test was bound in a book that contained hundreds of health
questions. After a few hours it told you whether you are a meat-eater,
a vegetarian, or have a balanced metabolism. Which types of meats,
fruits, and vegetables you should eat. Furthermore, what supplements
you should take, and, perhaps even more important, which you should
avoid. You know where your body, at the present time, is
three main metabolic classes of individuals (Vegetarian, Carnivore and
Balanced), and a number of types and subtypes. Each person can know
exactly which of the twelve metabolic types they are functioning in at
the present time.
Everyone should recheck their metabolic type every six months to a
year, because it can change. If and when it does, one's diet and
supplemental program will have to be changed accordingly. As one
improves their body chemistry, it's possible for their nervous system
to go into balance - giving them a balanced metabolism. This can take
years, or may never happen. However, I wouldn't worry about it if it
doesn't happen. As long as you're healthy and functioning normally —
that's what counts.
The overall objective of metabolic typing and a nutritional protocol is
the dominant functional type; while
the subdominant type in attempting to bring about a balance of function
of one's metabolism and to create superior health within one's genetic
design limits, which is the utmost of health care one can achieve.
technique used in our program is to re-evaluate every six months to
bring one up the metabolic
spiral to their genetic
design limits - where their individual optimum health occurs.
this state is achieved, one should maintain this level of nutritional
neglect or overwhelming stresses interrupt one's state of health, one
should re-evaluate and take the necessary metabolic supplements to
achieve their genetic metabolic design.
your metabolic type, you are guessing as to what foods and supplements
you should take. Dr. Kelley's TEST FOR THE DIFFERENT METABOLIC TYPES
provides a method and explains how you can develop a personalized
nutritional program that gives you the results you want. A person may
be following a program of the best foods, the hest supplements, and
plenty of exercise — but how does he or she know that those really are
the best foods for them? Each of us is different and has a different
human body comprises the most complex chemical laboratory that the
mind has capacity to conceive. Many of the greatest thinkers,
scientists, physicians, etc. of every generation from the beginning of
mankind have devoted their entire lives to the comprehension and study
of the intricate complicated bio-chemical laboratory called the "human
body". This laboratory is controlled and regulated primarily by the
Central Nervous System and the Autonomic Nervous System. It
is controlled and regulated secondarily by various "back-up" Systems,
such as, psychic, spiritual, chemical and physical activities. All
these systems regulate our master laboratory directly at the cell,
gland or organ level as well as the body as a single coordinated unit.
Autonomic Nervous System, by far, has the greatest effect over the
metabolism of body chemistry. The Central Nervous System, for the most
part is considered the nerves under the direct control of the will. The
Autonomic Nervous System, on the other hand, for the most part, is
considered the nerves which regulate the actions absolutely essential
to life. These must be carried on continuously without interruption and
are independent of the will.
Autonomic Nervous System has two main parts, the Sympathetic
Nervous System, and the Parasympathetic Nervous System. The Sympathetic
Nervous System is closely related to Adrenalin and is thought of as the
stimulator or accelerator. The Parasympathetic Nervous System,
on the other hand, is closely associated with Choline and is thought of
as the inhibitor or brake.
chemistry and cellular metabolism function best when there is an
automatic sensitive and delicate balance of the two divisions of the
Autonomic Nervous System. It is much like taking a shower, a "just
right" balance between the hot water and the cold water. It must be
emphasized here, however, that the "just right" balance of hot and cold
water, is not the same for everyone. To some, "just right" is a little
colder that to others. Likewise, that "just right balance" of the
Autonomic Nervous System is to some degree different for each

needs for optimum health. He was persecuted and copied by many, but no
one has come close to the results he achieved with their own system.
