My Health Transformation Journey By Alison McLaren-Sampson

Years of long working hours and pushing all work/life boundaries resulted in me experiencing a number of health challenges including weight gain which I was finding difficult to manage. I became aware that a number of my lymph nodes were enlarged and I had developed what I recognized as significant lymphoedema.

By the age of 55, I had already been working for many years within NHS Scotland as a Public Health Nurse. My career had started as a General Nurse in the North East of England followed by Midwifery training in Glasgow and later in 1983, I trained as a Public Health Nurse with NHS Lanarkshire. My years of public health nursing allowed me to work with wide varieties and ages of people.  I observed their lifestyles and varying health problems, many of which, I would observe could be optimized and improved by adopting healthy food and lifestyle changes.

My Increasing interest in natural health and wellbeing led me to take early retirement to pioneer and open my own Health and wellbeing clinic. For many years I had been interested in gut health and the brain’s connection to the intestines.

In late 2011, I was given a challenging diagnosis of a Non Hodgkin ’s lymphoma. After the initial shock and fear of a cancer diagnosis (how can anything prepare you for that?) I was determined to remain positive, take captive negative thoughts and continued with the Arch Colon Hydrotherapy training program. This allowed me to press on with plans for my future wellbeing clinic.

I also began looking at making some key lifestyle changes and in November 2012, I started chemotherapy treatment followed by 2 years of out patient antibody therapy.

To quote one of the fathers of modern medicine – “The person who takes medicine must recover twice. Once from the disease and once from the medicine” Sir William Osler (1849-1919) British Canadian-born physician.

In my pursuit of optimizing my own natural health and wellbeing, I discovered the Metabolic Balance ™ Program . This Anti-Ageing, Anti Inflammatory, 4 phase health plan formulated by German physician Dr. Wolf Funfack, M.D. and a number of biomedical scientists in 2005. The plan consequently has also become an Award Winning Weight Management Program.

My quest to start my own wellbeing clinic continued and in February 2013, still undergoing chemotherapy treatment, I went to London to train and became Scotland’s First certified Metabolic Balance™ Coach. The great news is that in March 2015, I founded Springs of Eden Wellbeing Clinic near Glasgow which was one of my proudest moments.

Today my bloods and hospital checks are normal. I researched and chose to add some health specific core nutritional supplements to my Metabolic Balance Plan. I continue to safely and gradually shed excess weight. I have optimized my previous seriously low Vitamin D3 levels, increased and my overall health, strength and wellbeing, which continues to improve.

How does the Program Work?

I offer all of my clients a free information consultation to assess their suitability for metabolic balance. During the consultation your needs and targets are discussed. Personal information and important data are recorded and arrangements are made for your blood samples to be taken.

After your blood is analysed at the laboratory and your data is received, Metabolic Balance™ will create your specific and individual 4 phase plan within a week or so, dependent on bank holidays. Your plan requires you to eat 3 regular meals per day with wholesome food that can be found in any good supermarket. Your meal plans are created specifically for you along with a shopping list of everything you need to start your plan saving you time and effort.


The 4 Phases:

Phase 1: A day preparation and detoxification process.

Phase 2: A 14day strict adjustment phase where you will be required to eat 3 meals daily, following 8 simple rules. As your coach, I will closely monitor you.

Phase 3: A more relaxed adjustment where you begin to incorporate additional foods into your daily meal plan. You may also choose to join in on special occasions and savour a glass of wine or two! As your coach, I will continue to monitor and support your weight progress.

Phase 4: Maintenance Phase where you continue to apply the core principles of Metabolic Balance ™ and enjoy a lifestyle that embraces balance and wellbeing.
