metabolic typing

Pseudomedicine
A non-scientific method proposed by Nicholas J Gonzalez, MD, for classifying humans into broad “metabolic” categories. According to Gonzalez, sympathetic dominant types should eat a primarily (80%) vegetarian diet; parasympathetic dominants should consume primarily fatty meats and dairy products (50%) of total in their diet.

Metabolic types
▪ Sympathetic dominant: Those with an efficient sympathetic nervous system. 
▪ Parasympathetic dominant: Those with an efficient parasympathetic nervous system. 
▪ Balanced type: Those whose sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are in complete balance.
