Metabolic Balance

How would you like to not constantly be battling your metabolism, have improved energy, refreshing sleep, less inflammation, and glowing skin? Metabolic Balance® strives to achieve all that through just food alone.

Metabolic Balance® is an innovative, all-natural nutrition program that aims to enhance your metabolism and optimize your health. Originally from Europe, this program is backed by over 25 years of scientific study on weight loss and metabolism and to-date has set out to help over a million people. As the Okanagan’s first Certified Metabolic Balance® Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Hartman is excited to offer this revolutionary program to the community.

How Does Metabolic Balance® Work?

The foundation of the program is Metabolic Balance’s unique capability to develop a personalized nutrition plan, based on an analysis of your blood chemistry, your medical history, and your weight-loss goals. Your own physiology will determine how food should be combined to bring about change in the body. The plan will let you know exactly what you need to eat to bring about biochemical changes to improve your metabolism and allow you to reach your desired weight goals. When we provide our body what it needs, healing can occur resulting in improved mood, decreased inflammation, glowing skin, and sublime energy. The benefits go far beyond just fitting into your favourite pair of jeans again! This is all accomplished without any injections, pills, medications, meal replacement shakes, counting calories, or starving yourself.

The Four Phases


Detox Phase

This two-day phase involves clearing out the colon and eating simple foods to prepare the body for better absorption and improved digestion.


Strict Phase

Your personalized meal plan starts now and will last for a minimum of 2 weeks. You will remain in this phase until you have reached your goal weight, or until you’ve lost 44 pounds max.


Relaxed Phase

Additional foods are added to your meal plan alongside the potential for a treat meal once a week. You will start to experiment how your body responds to various foods and slowly open up your diet.


Maintenance Phase

You did it! You continue to use your body cues and follow the principles of Metabolic Balance® to maintain all of the benefit you received during phases one to three.


Weight Loss

An independent study on the Metabolic Balance® Program showed that 90% of participants are able to lose weight and keep it off for over a year!

Improved Mood

When the digestive tract is functioning better, the body is able to generate more serotonin and dopamine for neurotransmitter balance in the body.

Glowing Skin

Participants have reported improvements in their eczema, psoriasis and acne alongside clearer, smoother skin

Enhanced Digestion

with eating clean, easy-to-digest foods, the demand on the liver and digestive system eases resulting in improved bloating, gas, reflux, and fatty liver.

Radiant Energy

Through enhanced nutrition status and improved sleep, participants experience a boost in their energy.

Lowered Insulin Resistance

All food on the program is low glycemic helping to manage insulin resistance, diabetes, and elevated cholesterol.

Reduced Pain & Inflammation

With weight loss and proper nutrition, inflammation improves; this reduces pain in the joints and muscles.

Hormone Balancing

Improvements in PMS, acne, heavy bleeding, and PCOS; Metabolic Balance® can be part of a holistic plan to support fertility.

Reduced Disease Risk

Obtaining a healthy weight reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome by improving insulin signaling, and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. This lowers the risk of diabetes and heart disease alongside reducing the pressure on the joints.

Reduced Allergies & Intolerances

With improved digestive and immune function, symptoms of allergies and food intolerances may lessen.
