Seven Major Assessment categories

  • Nutrition Level
  • Antioxidant Power
  • Sugar Metabolism
  • Anti-Inflammatory Capacity
  • Condition of Bacterial Flora
  • Absorption of Amino Acids
  • Proper Reaction to Stress
  • Nutrition Level E4L evaluates one’s overall well-being by measuring nutritional health. This holistic approach is reflected by the height of the column, with good general health producing a tall column and poor health producing a low column. In the latter case, significant changes in both nutrition and lifestyle are recommended for optimum well-being. Avery short column signifies a poor diet with substantial nutrient deficiencies.
  • Antioxidant Power The E4L Test measures the body’s efficiency at repairing cell damage caused by free radicals and oxidation. Every day, over 11,000 disturbances to the normal state of our cells are caused by toxins, radiation, chemical substances, drugs, nutritional deficiencies, alcohol, dehydration and atmospheric pollution. In order to restore damaged cells, specific chemical reactions and antioxidant mechanisms are activated. As the E4L Test measures the body’s ability to repair itself, it produces a low score when the body is accumulating more damage than it can repair and a high score when it is able to maintain a healthy state.
  • Sugar Metabolism Sugar metabolism (carbohydrate metabolism) is the body’s ability to convert sugar into energy. A low score indicates a large quantity of leptin and insulin, two hormones that regulate food intake and energy balance. Food that is highly processed tends to have a high glycemic index, quickly transforming it into sugar as it induces high levels of insulin and leptin that can eventually imbalance the whole endocrine system. This imbalance is connected to problems of satiety, weight gain, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, intense hunger, difficulty in following a healthy diet, high blood pressure, hand pains and psoriasis.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Capacity Inflammation itself is not a problem, but the reaction of our body as it attempts to repair any damage can compromise a healthy state. The lower the column, the higher the inflammation, and the more susceptible the body becomes to disease.
  • Condition of Bacterial Flora The status of gut bacterial flora is very important. As stated earlier, nutrition is perhaps the most important measurement along with gut bacterial flora because a compromised gut will disrupt digestion and prevent proper nutrients from being absorbed, causing more nutritional deficiencies. Since bacterial flora produce micronutrients and other substances that are fundamental to cellular functioning, this measurement becomes the primary indicator of the whole-body system and its well-being, even if it is not the shortest column.
  • Absorption of Amino Acids Amino acids are the building blocks that combine to form the proteins which make up our tissues (muscles, skin, hair, bones, etc.) and the enzymes of the human body. This measurement shows the need for amino acids to enable tissue regeneration. A short column reflects a limited assimilation of amino acids and the body’s need for increased absorption through protein-rich foods and amino acids in their free form, which are easier for the body to digest.
  • Proper Reaction to Stress This measurement quantifies mental and/or physical stress. Stress is the body’s hormonal response to its environment, circumstances and conditions. In an emergency situation the body experiences several physiological changes in response to heightened stress. It releases adrenaline and cortisol, the heart beats faster, larger amounts of blood travel go to the lungs and many more functions begin as the body prepares for any real or perceived threat. Health and well-being are largely assessed by how well we manage stress because physiological changes in response to stress, although temporary, affect the whole body, as ongoing stressors create structural problems. The lower the E4L Test measurement, the greater the stress. In addition to graphing these natural processes, the E4L Test provides an index of one’s general metabolic status. The index is calculated on the basis of the results of the seven evaluations and highlights general well-being. In an optimal state of health, the Metabolic Status Index is 100%. The lower the index, the higher the level of nutritional deficiencies to be addressed. Detected deficiencies and poor processes can improve sharply upon carefully following the recommendations provided by the E4L Test. These recommendations can strengthen the body, and improve health and well-being throughout the whole-body system. One can also take the E4L Test periodically to reassess the status of one’s health.
