“Each individual must be distinctive in his responses to stresses of all kinds.” ~ Roger Williams
Roger Williams wrote the above in his 1956 book, “Biochemical Individuality.”
That book offers extensive proof that we are all unique. And not just in superficial ways. He showed that each person is unique down to the basic building blocks of metabolism.
But he wasn’t the first to point this out. In his book he quotes Dr. C. H. Parry from the early part of the 1800s. The quote is, “It is more important to know what sort of patient has a disease, than to know what sort of disease a patient has.” I agree.
And if you go back further, in the first century BC, Lucretius said, “What is food for one man may be bitter poison to others.”
You can see that the idea everyone is unique is not new. But you wouldn’t know it to read recent studies.
Case in point is a study highlighted in Cell Press on November 19th, 2015.Ã‚Â The study found that (surprise, surprise) people are quite different when it comes to sugar metabolism.
The researchers are amazed. They even consider that this could lead, eventually, to a whole new way of making dietary recommendations based on individual needs. You can read about the study here.
Apparently these researchers are unfamiliar with Dr. Williams’ work. And they are most certainly unaware of Metabolic TypingÃ‚Â® (MT). For the past 40 years, MT has explored, documented and applied biochemical individuality to the foods people eat.
The MT approach never imposes an eating plan on someone. Instead, it finds what general foods apply to a person. Then it walks them through zeroing in on the exact right foods for them.
That’s the real individual dietary plan.
