Metabolic Syndrome [official definition]:  a collection of medically-related symptoms categorized by sick-care medicine as ‘mysterious’ that include cardiovascular-disease, diabetes, kidney [renal] problems, abdominal fat, high serum triglycerides, obesity, elevated blood pressure (hypertension) and low HDL cholesterol.  Officially, Metabolic Syndrome needs two or more symptoms for CLINICAL diagnosis.

Metabolic Syndrome [realistic definition]: dysfunctional physiology and compromised vital organ function; symptoms of latent [sometimes occult/hidden] dis-ease; dis-ease in the making; dis-ease that precedes official medical diagnosis.

RECOGNIZED SYMPTOMS of Metabolic Syndrome and maldigestion are cardiovascular dis-ease, insulin/leptin resistance, diabetes, kidney and pancreatic dysfunction, fatty-liver, high serum triglycerides and excess weight [more than 10 pounds over high school weight].

SHADOW SYMPTOMS of Metabolic Syndrome and maldigestion are intestinal putrefaction, constipation [less than three bowel movements/day], gas and bloating, acidic terrain pH, poor sleep, diverticulitis, colitis, colon polyps, cancer, and failure to make [your own] B-vitamins in your colon as your body was designed to do.


Metabolic Syndrome is extremely common. Fact is Metabolic Syndrome precedes and accompanies cancer, arthritis, cardiovascular dis-ease and diabetes.  Symptoms are generally ignored [by both patients and doctors]; patients until onset of serious dis-ease. Practitioners rarely diagnosed as Metabolic Syndrome.

Sick-care misdiagnoses are based on symptoms which are used to justify endless lab tests, unnecessary medical intervention and medications to treat symptoms RATHER addressing cause.

Applied [human] Physiology is NOT taught in school, therefore, practitioners have no understanding of it.

Practitioners are not trained in the etiology (causes) of Metabolic Syndrome and therefore ignore it.  Diagnosis of ‘related’ symptoms, and failure by patients to understand Applied Physiology sets-the-stage for ongoing dis-ease in its many forms.

Metabolic Syndrome is a lifestyle dis-ease NOT a medical disease.

Central to Metabolic Syndrome is compromised mitochondrial function at the cell level, meaning inability to make ATP and non-thermally process and convert hydrogen into anabolic energy.  ATP powers cellular activity; hydrogen powers general metabolism.  Dysfunctional mitochondrial metabolism results in electron leakage within the electron transport chain of the Krebs Cycle [aka citric acid cycle].

Metabolic Syndrome is a collection of BOTH major and minor symptoms of dysfunctional physiology and loss of health and premature aging.

Contributing factors to development and expression of Metabolic Syndrome are depletion of essential elements, poor digestion, leaky-gut, dysfunctional thyroid, acidic terrain, intestinal inflammation, bowel and liver dysfunction, insulin resistance, elevated blood sugar [over 90], leptin-resistance, and elevated endotoxin and mycotoxin levels,

See mycotoxin dominance.


The BEST way to address symptoms associated with metabolic syndrome is to ask for personalized guidance.


  1. Change your lifestyle and your diet.
  2. Embrace Young Again Club Protocols.
  3. Ask for help and be open to new ideas.
