Metabolic balance was developed by Dr. Wolf Funfack, M.D., a physician of Internal and Nutritional medicine, in collaboration with Silvia B├╝rkle, nutritional scientist and Food Engineer. The programme is generally offered through consultancies comprised of but not limited to physicians, homeopaths, nutritionists, clinics & fitness centers. Metabolic balance, Inc is not a medical organisation.

Neither metabolic balance, Inc co-workers nor Metabolic Balance Coaches are allowed to disperse medical advice or diagnosis unless qualified to do so. They merely offer information, guidance and tips pertaining to the Metabolic Balance methodology for weight management and metabolic regulation. The Metabolic Balance programme does not replace the advice of your physician or replace routine medical care particularly symptoms requiring long term medical supervision. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. The metabolic balance programme has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Pregnant women and nursing mothers can not participate in the Metabolic Balance programme. Patients with severe renal or hepatic insufficiency are also excluded from participation. If you are under medical treatment because of your weight, or if you are taking physician prescribed medications for an illness, you should first consult with your doctor about participation in Metabolic Balance.

If weight reduction is inadvisable due to illness or trauma, your doctor should decide on your participation in metabolic balance. In such cases always consult with your physician prior to beginning a weight loss programme.
