~ INTRODUCTION ~
Dr. Kelley developed his Self-Test for the Different Metabolic Types in the 1960’s to help bridge the gap of research to practical application. He realized that the overall state of health of this nation could no longer be maintained acceptable unless the nutritional needs of the people were brought into immediate and sharp focus. No one (doctor or patient) knows what a well-balanced meal is. Doctors have not been trained along these disciplines, nor do they have the time or inclination to educate themselves in these areas.
What follows, will be a permanent fixture of this page. As was typical, the rest of the world stood around – experimenting – while Dr. Kelley endeavored to always move forth with the One True answer to cancer and many other degenerative dis-eases. While in the early part of this century, many claim to have the answers to Metabolic Typing, it was in fact Dr. Kelley who advanced the science to this level. He was the modern day pioneer in the field. – Editor
In order to make the most efficient use of research data, it must be related and applied directly to each individual to meet his specific needs. The problem then arises as to which data is significant for each patient. Dr. Kelley had to develop a system to accomplish this. It was decided that the most practical system would be an extensive questionnaire: Dr. Kelley’s Self Test for the Different Metabolic Types. This book was updated and enhanced in 2013. The test is bound in a book that contains hundreds of health questions. It includes complete instructions so you can score the results yourself (the results are compiled on an as-you-go basis during the completion of the questionnaire).
Taking the time (it takes a few hours) to complete the questionnaire will tell you whether you are a meat-eater, a vegetarian, or have a balanced metabolism. It will tell you which types of meats, fruits, and vegetables you should eat. Furthermore, it will tell you what supplements you should take, and, perhaps even more important, which you should avoid.
When you complete the questionnaire and follow the directions at the end of the book for scoring your answers, you will know where your body, at the present time, is functioning. There are three main metabolic types (Vegetarian, Carnivore and Balanced), and a number of sub-types (three in Vegetarian, three in Carnivore and four in Balanced). Each person will know exactly which of the three main types they are functioning in and also which sub-type.
After one follows the nutritional guidelines at the back of the questionnaire for their metabolic type for a few weeks or months they will want to take the Self-Test again to determine if their metabolism has switched to another type. Everyone should recheck their metabolic type every six months to a year, because it can change. If and when it does, one’s diet and supplemental program will have to be changed accordingly.
As one improves their blood chemistry, it’s possible for their nervous system to go into balance – giving them a balanced metabolism. This can take years, or it may never happen. However, I wouldn’t worry about it if it doesn’t happen. As long as you’re healthy and functioning normally – that’s what counts.
~ Objective of Metabolic Typing ~
The over objective of our metabolic typing, and suggested therapeutic protocol it to:
1. Support the dominate functional type; while;
2. Rebuilding the subdominant type in attempting to bring about a balance of function of ones’ metabolism and to create superior health within ones’ genetic design limits, which is the utmost of health care one can achieve.
3. The technique used in our program is to re-evaluate every six months to bring one up the metabolic spiral (see page XX) to their genetic design limits – where their individual optimum health occurs.
4. Once this state is achieved, one should maintain this level nutritional supplemental support.
5. Should neglect or overwhelming stresses interrupt ones’ state of health (genetic design type), one should re-evaluate and take the necessary metabolic supplements to achieve their genetic metabolic design.
It is only possible to obtain an accurate evaluation of one’s Metabolic Type and metabolic needs by an intensive objective self-evaluation such as presented herein.
In DEGENERATIVE METABOLIC DISEASES, we must understand that various laboratory blood, urine and tissue examinations are worthless at best and dangerous at worst to draw an accurate picture of one’s metabolism. Such fraudulent schemes, tricks, and deceptions shall also pass away with the current generation or so of their promoters.
Following the recommended supplements, while adhering to the dietary guidelines within, has proven most helpful in balancing the metabolism of each individual and produces a state of better health and well-being than can be obtained in any other system.
~ Biological Genocide ~
Those who are not aware of the Mass Genocide being practiced and inflicted upon civilization today by the establishment, are deceived into trying to obtain health by understanding METABOLIC TYPING without an awareness of its limitations.
~ Creativity in Metabolic Typing ~
As shown in the diagramed double inverted vortex spiral of the metabolic type chart, Metabolic Types XI – X – XII are clustered near the top. This depicts the ultimate format of optimum health. However, most creativity or original thought and comprehension fall within these areas of our paradigm.
Type XI sympathetic metabolizers are creative left brained individuals with elevated capacities of logical cause and effect creative comprehension. These individuals in their genius find it difficult to “see the forest for seeing the bacteria on the leaves of the trees. An example of this Metabolic Type is Henry Ford, an engineering genius ahead of his time – changing the course of history.
Type X balanced metabolizers are very creative in the way they can see details like the type XI as well as comprehend wholes in part as the type XII metabolizers. The type X metabolizer stands close enough to the forest to see the leaves yet far enough away to see the forest. Without question King David was a type X balanced metabolizer. Possibly, King Edward VIII was also genetically so gifted. Type X are filled with lovingkindness and can see all four sides of a coin.
Type XII parasympathetic metabolizers are always right brained individuals and often left handed. They seem to have a direct connection to universal knowledge. They see, experience and comprehend in an unlimited perception the rest of humanity never dreams exists. A notable example of a Type XII metabolizer is Thomas A. Edison.
~ Discovering Your Personal Nutritional Needs ~
Without knowing your metabolic type, you are guessing as to what foods and supplements you should take. Dr. Kelley’s Do-It-Yourself Book Dr. Kelley’s Self Test for the Different Metabolic Types provides a method and explains how you can develop a personalized nutritional program that gives you the results you want.
A person may be following a program of the best foods, the best supplements, and plenty of exercise – but how does he or she know that those really are the best foods for them? Each of us is different and has a different metabolism.
Many of the world’s leading scientists including, for instance, biochemist Dr. Roger Williams, author of many excellent and well-known books such as You Are Extraordinary, and Nobel Prize Winning Physicist, Dr. Linus Pauling, have proven this through their own research.
~ Basic Metabolic Considerations ~
Originally, we classified Individuals into twelve basic types, which are named “Metabolic Types One through Twelve.” However in the early 1960’s computer programs were limited to a maximum of ten data banks for calculating metabolic types. Although we had the first main frame computer in Dallas up and running – before banks had computers and were still toying with the concept. Our Do-It Yourself Book is based upon our original Scientific Data. By classifying each person into their own proper type, it is possible to determine accurately what vitamins, minerals, foods, and other supplements would best support his or her own body chemistry. Equally important, it is possible to know what supplements and foods they should avoid. With the knowledge of these factors, it is possible to design a program that has the fullest potential. All people fall into one of the metabolic types, that is to say they fall into one of the basic ways the body functions. Each person’s body takes in food, water and air. How a person uses these raw materials to maintain life differs from one person to another. This function of maintaining life is called metabolism and is normally defined as the sum total of all the chemical reactions occurring in the body.
~ The Nervous Systems ~
Although the body has a central nervous system, part of which is called the sensory nervous system and a part which is called the voluntary nervous system; in dealing with metabolism our main focus is on – the involuntary nervous system – the autonomic nervous system.
~ The Voluntary Nervous System ~
The voluntary nervous system, a part of the central nervous system, is that part of the brain and nerves that are under the control of the conscious mind. Activities that you have definite control over, like making decisions, walking, speaking and the like are controlled by the voluntary nervous system.
~ The Autonomic Nervous System ~
The autonomic nervous system is that part of the brain and nervous system that carries on the functions of the body that we have very little or no conscious control over. The autonomic nervous system is that part of the brain and nervous system that carries on the functions of the body that we have very little or no conscious control over. The autonomic nervous system controls such activities as our heartbeat, respiration and digestion.
The autonomic nervous system regulates the basic life-sustaining functions of the body such as the turning on and off of glands and organs, maintaining the acid/alkaline balance of the blood, saliva, and urine, digestion of food, balancing glandular functions, turning the cells on and off, and stimulating and retarding the body and its parts.
The autonomic nervous system is the mere regulator of metabolism. It determines how efficiently and effectively the body uses food, water and air.
The autonomic nervous system consists of two divisions. One division is called the sympathetic nervous system and the other division is called the parasympathetic nervous system. Each of these two divisions sends messages in the form of electric current to the different parts of the body. There is a nerve from each of the divisions to each part of the body.
~ The Sympathetic Nervous System ~
The sympathetic nervous system sends messages that in general accelerate or speed up our activities.
~ The Parasympathetic Nervous System ~
The parasympathetic nervous system sends messages that in general retard or slow down our activities.
~ Three Groups – Twelve Metabolic Types ~
The autonomic nervous system plays a major role in the classification of the metabolic types. The twelve metabolic types have been arranged into three groups:
1. Group A, which includes the Sympathetic Dominant Metabolic Types: One, Four, Six and Eleven.
2. Group B, which includes the Parasympathetic Dominant Metabolic Types: Two, Five, Seven and Twelve.
3. Group C, Balanced Sympathetic/Parasympathetic Metabolic types include Three, Eight, Nine and Ten.
~ Group A – Sympathetic- Vegetarian Types ~
Group A metabolizers are classed as Types One, Four, Six, and Eleven These types have very strong or dominant sympathetic nervous systems. These types have very strong functions of the brain, pineal, anterior pituitary, parathyroid, thyroid, and adrenal medulla glands; heart, bone, muscle and connective tissue, kidneys, gonads (ovaries or testes), and uterus or prostate. Their muscles are usually quite well developed and show good muscle tone Their hearts normally beat a little fast. Constipation is an ever-present plague. Frequently insomnia is a problem. Tension, hyperactivity and drive are their plight.
Sympathetic do not digest foods from their diet well. Actually, they digest less than 10% of their food intake. They assimilate about 40% of the digested intake. These supposedly vegetarian types do not like heavy meats as they cannot digest them well. These types do best on fruit and carbohydrates. If you go to a health food cafeteria bar you will see a few selections of green salads and about 20 feet of deserts. Sympathetic metabolizers will take a few spoons full of vegetables and 5 or 6 deserts. All one has to do to determine a sympathetic metabolizer is go to a cafeteria and observe those who load up on sweets. These sweets are easily digested and assimilated by them and feed their dominate glands and organs that give them their outstanding energy. Then the hop and jump around like a Ubangee Chief at a White Missionary Boiling.

~ General Nutritional Guidelines for Sympathetic Dominant Vegetarian Types (Group A) ~
Of this group, Metabolic Type Six’s require the most nutritional support, the greatest number and strength of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutritional factors that help the vegetarian type. Type One’s require the second greatest nutritional support. Type One’s need the support that slows down the sympathetic nervous system and speeds up the parasympathetic nervous system. Type Four metabolizers are approaching toward a healthier less extreme metabolism. Type Eleven need the least nutritional support of this vegetarian class – they are the closest of the four to becoming balanced type metabolizers, as you can see from the diagram of the Metabolic Spiral on page 25.
For nutritional support, Sympathetic Dominant Metabolizers most often need: Vitamin D; Vitamin K; Ascorbic Acid; Biotin; Folic Acid; Vitamins B1, B2 and B6; PABA; Niacin; Potassium; Magnesium; Manganese; Zinc; Chromium; Hydrochloric Acid; Pancreatic Enzymes and Amino Acids. Each of the vegetarian Types (One, Four, Six and Eleven) need these supplements, but each type needs different amounts and different ratios.
~ Metabolic Type One ~
Type One metabolizers come the closest of all the types to being purely sympathetic dominant people. One of the chief characteristics of Type One metabolizers is that they can burn carbohydrates slowly. Their bodies utilize the carbohydrates poorly and they are able to maintain their blood sugar level with very little fluctuation. If anything, their blood sugar level stays a little elevated. With this condition, they can eat mostly fruits and vegetables, maintaining their health and feeling well. These people are what are commonly called vegetarians. They very seldom if ever crave meats (except fish) and when they eat meat, they usually feel groggy and have a loss of energy. These people do not do well on lamb, venison, beef, sardines or salmon. They can do quite well on up to 100% of their diet raw. They should stress the following foods: whole grains including spaghetti, macaroni, breads, cereals; raw (unpasteurized) goats’ milk, eggs; white fish. They may use spices, 2-3 cups of coffee (non-instant), herbal tea, or an occasional alcoholic beverage or sweet dessert (made with unrefined sugar or raw, unheated honey. They enjoy and do well on nuts and seeds; rice; fruits and vegetables like apples, apricots, bananas, berries, grapes, oranges, pears, plums, grapefruit, asparagus, lima beans, beet tops, cucumbers, sprouts, lettuce, collards, dandelion greens, kale, mustard, turnip greens, spinach, and any leafy green vegetable.
Editor’s NOTE: IF you have been diagnosed with, or are currently undergoing treatment for ANY form of cancer, Dr. Kelley was firm in his belief that the Metabolic Type Four diet (below) is the only one which should be considered until one has been “cleared” of having cancer. ~ Ed.
~ Metabolic Type Four ~
Type Four metabolizers are people who have strong sympathetic nervous systems but not nearly as strong as the Type One’s. Type Four’s are a little more balanced or non-strict vegetarians. These people usually have a genetic background of their ancestors coming from around the Mediterranean Sea – Spanish, Italian, Greek, Israeli, Arabic, etc. Type Four’s burn or metabolize their carbohydrates and sugars a little faster than the Type One’s. The Type Four’s that tend toward having diabetes can normally control it with diet alone.
To maintain optimum health, Type Four’s do well on fish, chicken, turkey, other fowl, beef (two times a week), almost all vegetables, a little fruit, sprouts, some citrus, eggs, and raw, (unpasteurized) goats’ milk. Most American “vegetarians” fall into this class. Type Four’s generally need about 60% of their food raw. They normally do not need as much nutritional support in the form of nutritional supplements as the Types One and Six.
~ Metabolic Type Six ~
Type Six metabolizers are people who are basically sympathetic dominant. They fall into the vegetarian class of metabolizers. Type Six’s are very poor metabolizers – that is, they take in their food and nothing much happens. Their bodies do not utilize their food and they get very little energy from it and are generally sickly. Their assimilation or utilization of food is about 20% of normal. They almost always feel bad or not up to par. Type Six’s need about 60% of their food cooked. They need a great deal of supplemental nutritional support. They require more hydrochloric acid, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, etc. than either Types Four, One or Eleven.
Type Six metabolizers should give care to the intake of whole and complete natural foods. All refined, processed, synthetic foods and additives must be avoided at all times. Type Six people do best when they stress the following foods in their diets: adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables including lettuce, green vegetables, onions, radishes, potatoes; whole grains including spaghetti, macaroni, breads; gelatin and other desserts made with raw sugar or unheated honey; natural jams, jellies, ice creams, mushrooms, nuts, seeds, and seafood and fowl, which should be preferred over other meats.
~ Metabolic Type Eleven ~
Type Eleven metabolizers are usually thin in body build left brain mathematically inclined people very logical and with super efficient metabolisms. They need a wide variety of fruits, grains and cheese. They are usually very self contained and need to be alone most of the time. They are most formal and respectful of others but are so self-contained they are not very sociable and do not need a lot of friends. Their work is their passion and are perfectly satisfied being alone with their creative logical chosen work to occupy their interest. They are not people oriented and measure success by achieving impossible goals.
They do not require a large quantity of any food, but prefer and do well on sweets on which they function very well. Their bodies are so incredibly efficient that they often go all day without the need for food. They do not like to be interrupted by such trivial things as meals.
~ Group B – Parasympathetic Carnivore Types ~
Group B metabolizers are classed as Types Two, Five, and Twelve. The parasympathetic nervous system dominates these types. These parasympathetic metabolizers have strong function of the posterior pituitary, hypothalamus, parotid, sublingual (saliva) and adrenal cortex glands; stomach, spleen, duodenum, pancreas, liver, small intestine, colon, lymph and immune systems. Their digestion is very good. They are not constipated, but to the contrary, tend toward loose stools and diarrhea. They have poor muscle tone. They are in general lethargic, slow, and fall asleep easily. They usually have a good reserve of strength.
Parasympathetic metabolizers can digest most anything (about 90% of their food intake). and they can assimilate about 80%. However, their glands and organs responsible for utilizing these nutrients (their get-up-and-go) are often and usually weak, defective and exhausted. Therefore, they do not utilize but 10% of what they assimilate. Then the major problems of the parasympathetic metabolizer focus and revolve around “storage” of these assimilated foods in form of overweight. It is most difficult or almost impossible for them to retrieve the stored nutrients. Taking the recommended nutrients for these metabolizers does help a great deal but weight is their dilemma.

Above normal appetites, Actions are relaxed, calm, firm and positive, Bowel movements are easy to start, Cough frequently, Crave butter, Crave fatty meats, Crave salty food, Deep cough often, Desire fatty foods like cream sauces, Desire to be cautious, Difficulty in holding urine, Dislike exercise very much, Dream frequently, Dreams are vivid and often in color, Ears are pink or flushed, Eating at bedtime makes them feel better, Eating fruit makes them feel jittery or jumpy, Emotionally stable, Energy is elevated after eating meat, Energy loss after eating sweets, Excess saliva, Extremely sluggish, Eyebrows are thin and scanty, Eyelids look droopy or saggy, Eyes look sunken in, Eyestrain causes headaches, Faces flush easily, Fall asleep quickly, Feel better and satisfied when eating meat, Frequently cough up mucus, Gums are dark pink or bluish, Hard to get going in the morning, Intestines rumble and growl a lot, Marked endurance, More than one bowel movement per day, Not much “get-up-and-go”, Often feel sad or dejected, Oily skin, Prefer large egg and bacon breakfasts, Recall most dreams, Ruddy complexions – good face color, Seldom get angry, Slow breathing rates, Slow to make decisions, Strong hunger pains, Urinate several times a day, Very enlarged round chests, Very good digestion, Very little fear.
~ General Nutritional Guidelines for Parasympathetic Dominant Carnivore Types (Group B) ~
Metabolic Types Two, Five Seven and Twelve need some of the same nutritional support as do the vegetarian types, but for the most part, they need entirely different vitamins, minerals and foods.
Type Seven’s need more nutritional support than types Two, Five and Twelve. Type Two’s have such strong parasympathetic dominance that they need almost as much support as Type Seven’s. Type Five metabolizers are more balanced and their supplemental support is not as much as the Types Two and Seven. Type Twelve need the least metabolic support and are much more efficient and closer to balanced metabolizers.
Parasympathetic dominant metabolizers most often need such nutritional support as: Vitamins E and B-12; Niacinamide, Pantothenic Acid, Choline, Inositol, Calcium, Phosphorus, Calcium Ascorbate, Bioflavonoids Complex, Zinc and Ribonucleic Acid. These metabolizers should eat at bedtime enough to carry them through the night. They should not eat leafy green vegetables or take large quantities of the B vitamins.
~ Metabolic Type Two ~
Type Two metabolizers come the closest of all the types to being purely parasympathetic dominant people. One of the chief characteristics of Type Two metabolizers is that they burn carbohydrates very rapidly. Their pancreases work so well that carbohydrates and sugars burn or metabolize so rapidly that these people have a tendency to develop hypoglycemia – low blood sugar. When they eat only fruits, vegetables and sweets, their blood sugar rises and drops many times a day and their energy goes up and down like a yo-yo. When Type Two’s eat carbohydrates and sugars, which are metabolized so quickly, they become very weak and shaky after a spurt of energy.
Type Two metabolizers must have meat – preferably fatty, heavy, high purine meats such as lamb, beef, salmon, and sardines. They are usually the people who order their steaks very rare. By eating these fatty meats, they slow down their carbohydrate/sugar metabolisms. They feel they have eaten something that will “stick to their ribs.” Their energy is released at a normal rate and they don’t suffer the ups and downs energy-wise that fruits and sweets cause them to have. Normally, these metabolizers don’t care much for sweets. They do well on root vegetables cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, carrot juice, and beans. They enjoy butter, cream, Danish pastries, cream puffs and foods with cream or butter added. They can do well by adding a small amount of whole grains.
Type Two people do very poorly on leafy green vegetables, candies, fruits, sweets, high carbohydrate diets and sugar pastries. They should limit the B vitamins and intake of potassium and magnesium supplements. Type Two metabolizers usually have a genetic background from German, Scandinavian and Northern European ancestry.
~ Metabolic Type Five ~
Type Five metabolizers are those persons who have strong parasympathetic nervous systems, but not nearly as strong as Type Two metabolizers. Type Five metabolizers are more toward the normal or balanced metabolism. They can tolerate a wide variety of foods. Type Five metabolizers do well on beef or lamb several times a week, seafood, salmon, tuna, raw (unpasteurized) goat cheese, avocado, beans, peas, lentils, celery, carrots, asparagus, butter, whole grain cereals and breads, some nuts and occasionally Danish pastry and raw (unpasteurized) goats’ milk cheesecake.
Type Five metabolizers are not as prone to hypoglycemia as are the Type Two metabolizers. However, Type Five’s can easily develop hypoglycemia if they indulge in too many candies and sweets. Many Americans fall into this class and do not do well as vegetarians.
~ Metabolic Type Seven ~
Type Seven metabolizers are the sickly, weak, inefficient parasympathetic metabolizers. Their bodies do not utilize their food well and as a result they function very poorly. They almost always feel bad or sickly, functioning very sluggishly. It is difficult for them to maintain adequate nutrition to their individual body cells. Their body chemistry systems are quite inefficient and more than normal supplementation must be maintained at all times. Care must be given to the intake of whole and complete natural foods. All refined, processed, synthetic food and food additives must be avoided constantly.
Type Seven metabolizers are encouraged to stress the following foods in their diets: seafood, sardines, salmon, brains, liver heart, meat gravies and soups, non-colored unprocessed (unpasteurized) goat cheeses, beans, lentils, carrots, celery, butter, and cauliflower. Small amounts of Danish pastries, raw (unpasteurized) goats’ milk cheesecake and an occasional alcoholic beverage may be taken. Type Seven metabolizers function best on purine meats such as salmon, tuna, beef, lamb, and wild game. These meats should be preferred over others and used whenever possible and practical. Care should be given to adequately detoxify the bodies of these metabolizers.
~ Metabolic Type Twelve ~
Type Twelve metabolizers need the same types of foods as types Two Five and Seven. That is meat – preferably fatty, heavy, high purine meats such as lamb, beef, salmon, and sardines. They do well on organ meats, butter and cream. Type Twelve metabolizers are so efficient they need less food and a wider variety than Types Two, Five and Seven
Type Twelve metabolizers are people orientated. Type twelve metabolizers are most social creatures. Their joy is any social event. Type Twelve metabolizers are most creative in poetry, music, any right brain function and show talent in such creative vocations. They are beauty oriented people they are always smiling and happy and singing and see only good in everything and everybody. Their body build is usually “stout” or as some say, “solid” “well built” “firm” healthy. Their bodies function best on small quantities of salmon, cream cheeses, butter, cream, green vegetables and small amounts of whole grains. They do well on 3 to 5 hours of sleep and can stay up all night with friends or parties. They are slow starters in the mornings but make up for it after 11 p.m. Their bodies are so incredibly efficient that they need very small amounts of food.
~ Group C – Balanced Sympathetic Parasympathetic Types ~
Group C metabolizers are classified as Types Three, Eight, Nine and Ten. These types have balanced autonomic nervous systems. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems work well together in a normal balance of glandular activity and metabolic function. Group C metabolizers have balanced metabolisms, which are neither strongly meat eating nor strongly vegetarian – they fall in the middle. They are both vegetarian and meat eating. Metabolizers in this category have the greatest freedom in what they can eat. Indeed, they enjoy and thrive equally on foods from both the vegetarian and meat-eating categories.
The balanced metabolizers burn their food neither too fast nor too slow. This is one of the reasons they do equally well on all varieties of food.
Balanced metabolizers generally need such nutritional support as Vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, Niacinamide, Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, PABA, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Manganese, Chromium and Zinc. Each of the balanced Types Three, Five, Nine and Ten needs these supplements but each type needs different amounts and in different ratios. They also require extra amounts of Hydrochloric Acid and Pancreatic Enzymes.
The balanced metabolizers can suffer from the conditions and disorders of either the vegetarian groups or the carnivore groups of metabolizers. They are prone to the following conditions and have the following characteristics, all of course, in moderation and generally not to the extreme.
~ Balanced Metabolizers Are More Prone to. . .

~ General Nutritional Guidelines for Balanced Metabolizers (Group C) ~
Balanced metabolizers have different needs and requirements depending upon which type they are. Generally however, they do well on a large variety of food.
~ MetabolicType Three ~
Type Three metabolizers are balanced metabolizers. That is, their sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are functioning in balance equally well. However, Type Three metabolizers come with bodies that are very inefficient. No matter what foods or supplements they take in, they are generally only going to use about 10% to 15% of them. Type Three metabolizers find it difficult for their individual cells to obtain adequate nutrition. All refined, processed, synthetic foods and food additives must be avoided at all times. Type Three metabolizers of necessity must take larger quantities of nutritional supplementation to maintain their nutritional health than any other type. They must eat food prepared in such a manner as to be easily digested. They should have a wide variety of foods, which enables them to get the wide spectrum of nutrients their bodies require.
Type Three (and Six and Seven) metabolizers are generally those with the poorest health. They have to keep constant vigilance over their diet and supplements. Generally they have inherited weak, defective bodies and very rarely will they ever have good health and feel really well if they are not extremely cautious.
Unfortunately, due to the stress of modern living and agribusiness, more and more Americans who have inherited good bodies have so exhausted and destroyed their bodies that they are now functioning in the Type Three (or Six and Seven) range. It would take supreme effort to rebuild and repair these bodies and put them back into normal optimum health again.
~ Metabolic Type Eight ~
Type Eight metabolizers account for the greatest number of people. More Americans are Type Eight than any other metabolic type. Type Eight metabolizers have fairly healthy bodies. Their bodies can adapt to a wide variety of stresses and yet remain stable. Their autonomic nervous systems also have a wide range of adaptability. Type Eight people need a wide variety of foods each day. This permits them to attempt to obtain a large variety of nutrients required to operate their bodies efficiently. Nutritional supplements, like their food, must cover a wide spectrum.
~ Metabolic Type Nine ~
Type Nine metabolizers are in the balanced class – their sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems work equally well. This type is the most difficult to understand. If these people had a choice, they would always prefer cooked food. Working with these people through the years has led to the conclusion that they truly cannot do well on raw foods. Evidently they have mutated to the point that they need cooked food to be satisfied. They generally require 70% cooked food and can comfortably handle 30% raw food. Type nine metabolizers do best when they can eat at Smorgasbord three or four times a week. In other words, if they eat a little of everything, they function best.
~ Metabolic Type Ten ~
Type Ten metabolizers are the people with balanced and super efficient metabolisms. They need a wide variety of foods and supplements, but they do not require a large quantity of anything. Their bodies are so incredibly efficient that they need very small amounts of food. If they eat a normal meal, they feel more than satisfied. They can eat half as much as any other metabolic type. They do well on any food but often prefer raw fruits, vegetables, whole grains and unpasteurized goat cheese.
Recap of The Twelve Types of Metabolism
~ Vegetarian Types ~
Type 1 – Needs no animal products at all. Can live entirely on fruits, vegetables and nuts.
Type 4 – Needs some animal products such as fish, chicken, eggs and unpasteurized goat cheese several times a week.
Type 6– Combination of Types 1 and 4, but has horrible metabolism. Needs more food to make up for lack of absorption.
Type 11 – Most efficient sympathetic metabolizers. They need little food and prefer fruits and sugars to other foods.
~ Carnivore Types ~
Type 2 – Needs meat up to 14 ounces a day, preferably beef. Has little or no energy unless they eat meat.
Type 5 – Needs meat to feel good, but less often, perhaps 2-3 times a week.
Type 7 – A cross between Types 2 and 5 but with a horrible metabolism.
Type 12 – A supper efficient metabolizer Happy, cheery.
~ Balanced Types ~
Type 3 – Has horrible metabolism. Only absorbs 15% of what he or she eats. Feels so bad that they often wish they were dead.
Type 8 – Normal balanced metabolism. – Can eat and benefit from all foods, provided they are wholesome.
Type 9 – Needs 70% cooked food in diet. Hates raw food.
Type 10 – Super-efficient metabolizer. Needs very little food and sleep, yet feels terrific
~ Metabolic Type Spiral ~
This is what we call the Metabolic Type Spiral. It shows all 12 metabolic types and their relationship to each other, their sympathetic or their parasympathetic dominance and their metabolic efficiency.
On the left side are listed the sympathetic dominant types 1, 4, 6 and 11. On the right side are listed the parasympathetic types 2, 5,7 and 12. And in the center column are listed the balanced types 10, 8, 9 and 3; these have a little of both sympathetic and parasympathetic dominating.
The horizontal scale runs from the extremely sympathetic type 1 to the more balanced but still sympathetic type 4 to the balanced type 8 to the parasympathetic type 5 to the extremely parasympathetic type 2. Ideally one should have a more balanced type of metabolism with good qualities from both sides.
Striking a balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic isn’t all that is desirable. It is also important to have a good, strong metabolism capable of utilizing raw materials with maximum efficiency. The vertical scale shows the scale from the exceptionally strong metabolizer type 10 to the good metabolizer type 8 to the poor sympathetic metabolizer type 6 to the poor parasympathetic metabolizer type 7 to the poor balanced metabolizer type 9 to the poorest metabolizer of all, type 3. The type 3 metabolizer only assimilates about 10% of what he or she eats.
The objective of METABOLIC TYPING is to spiral from ill health as in types 3, 6 and 7 up the spiral toward a state of optimum health as in types 10, 11, and 12. This is accomplished by knowing from where you are now, eating the proper diet and taking the proper metabolic supplementation to achieve your – OPTIMUM HEALTH
~ Dr. Kelley’s POSTSCRIPT ~
In interacting with the various metabolic types the observations of note that come to my attention are:
A. DIVINE RIGHT OF KINGS: All girls of all metabolic types believe without question that they like Genghis Kahn, Napoleon and Queen Victoria and have the divine right of Kings to rule, boss, direct and control all persons and activities they come in contact. This of course is true, but in relationship only to their own children. Unfortunately they try to extend this concept in out of context situations from family affairs into all activities in which they are engaged. Each metabolic type has her own distinct techniques and system of control;
1). Metabolic types I, IV, VI and XI the sympathetic metabolizers use a more aggressive system of control; like superior intelligence, threats, crying and demanding. They find it difficult to let go, they are like a pit bulldog with lockjaw;
2). Metabolic types II, V, VII and XII the parasympathetic metabolizers are less aggressive and turn on their charm. They have the ability to let go and wait a little longer and catch their victim in a weak moment.
B. NOTES ON TYPE XI’s. All type XI sympathetic metabolizers are creative left brained individuals with elevated capacities of logical cause and effect creative comprehension. These individuals in their genius find it difficult to “see the forest for seeing the bacteria on the leaves of the trees.” An example of Metabolic Type XI is Henry Ford, an engineering genius ahead of his time- changing the course of history.
All Type XI sympathetic metabolizers are extremely brilliant secondly after their most dominate trait, unwavering dedication and determining. They are analytical to a point of sin. They have many more questions than the pope has Catholics. They by genetic design must ask questions. As dumb and ignorant as I am it took me over six months working with my very best student, a type XI, Dr. Pamela McDougle, Dean of our College of Metabolic Medicine, to perceive that a Type XI’s questions are rhetorical only and they do not want an answer handed to them on a silver platter. They throw out a question and expect it, ( along with their energy and the questioned one’ energy) to form a stationary cloud. In so doing, they can go around and around, inside and outside, look from top and bottom, slice it vertically, horizontally and diagonally collecting unlimited data by which the can form their own answer of TRUTH unencumbered by any misconception of the one who they ask.
Type XI’s by their very genetic makeup and nature are loners and must collect their own data and draw their own conclusions. They are willing to pay the price of a multitude of mistakes as well as repeated trial and error in their uncompromising search for pure truth.
Type XI’s must find answers to their questions. But more than that, they must find these answers themselves. They will take nothing hey must less and they have to arrive at them on their own terms and timing. Their motto, “There is a reason for everything – what is it?”
In addition to Henry Ford of the last century who changed history I would guess that Bill Gates is also a Type XI who has changed history in this century. I would not be surprised and tend to predict that Dr. Pamela will change history for the HEALTH CARE parameters of our civilization. She will still be teaching at our College long after I am dead and gone or locked up in an insane asylum.
C. NOTES ON TYPE X’s. All metabolic Type X’s are so balanced they can do everything well. In dealing with various tasks at hand and others, they have a tendency to procrastinate. Spiritually having the faith that that everything will work out the way it should, they accept life the way it is. With this confidence they can adapt to what ever comes their way – and they can and they do.
Type X balanced metabolizers are very creative in the way they can see details like a Type XI as well as comprehend wholes as the Type XII metabolizers. Type X metabolizers s stand close enough to the forest to see the leaves, yet far enough away to see the forest. Without question King David was a Type X balanced metabolizer. Possibly, King Edward VIII was also genetically so gifted. Type X’s are filled with lovingkindness and can see all five sides of a coin.
D. NOTES ON TYPE XII’s. Parasympathetic metabolizers are always right brained individuals and often left handed. They seem to have a direct connection to universal knowledge. They see, experience and comprehend in an unlimited perception the rest of humanity never dreams exists. A notable example of a Type XII metabolizer is Thomas A. Edison. All Type XII parasympathetic metabolizers are happy, self confident, well built structurally with energy to spare. They are strong and capable of producing sustained energy over a long period of time, they need little sleep, they are self confident, at peace with themselves, others and the world. They take life as it comes and can wait for others to catch-up spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. They bring peace, calm and a sense of at-easement to others. Dr. Ella McElwee is a good example of a Type XII. For exercise she take a willow switch hanging b her back door, goes hiking up and down the hills of Pennsylvania – bear hunting. She sees patients from 6 am until 10 pm, and among other things runs the largest health food store in the county to keep from being bored. Another very good example of a Type XII metabolizer is Mr. K .C. McDougle, the educational director of our College. Those attending our seminars will observe his many creative activities. He is not only a triathlon for his exercise interests, he has at least three difficult creative mental tasks going at all times. It totally exhausts one just to stand by and watch him for an hour or so.

~ Warning of Fraud ~
Dr. Kelley developed the Science of Metabolic Typing in the 1960’s. This science is based upon the understanding of CREATION, GENETICS, PHYSIOLOGY, BIO-CHEMISTRY, PSYCHOLOGY. ENVIRONMENTAL ADAPTATION, GENETIC MUTATION, BIOLOGY, and not the least, RELIGION.
Misrepresentation at best and ignorance at worst has promoted the current abundance of FRAUDULENT METABOLIC TYPING concepts circulating today.
Dr. Kelley, in 1967, developed the scientific paradigm of METABOLIC TYPING. In. 1972 University of California at San Diego professor, Dr. George Watson, wrote a book, Nutrition and Your Mind, noting the concept of “Fast and Slow” oxidation rate which was a small part of Dr. Kelley’s Metabolic Typing Paradigm.
In the mid 1980’s Mr. William L. Wolcott, found a paperback edition of Dr. Watson’s Nutrition and Your Mind. At the time Mr. Wolcott was an employee being trained by Dr. Kelley. According to Kelley – Wolcott was unable to comprehend the Kelley Metabolic Typing Paradigm, his employment was terminated. Wolcott then appropriated Dr. Kelley’s copyright name of “Metabolic Types.” Wolcott furthermore produced a most defective nutritional program marketing it through Dr. Kelley’s trained Physicians and Technicians. Nutritional Programs being promoted from Watson to William L. Wolcott and Dr. Harold J. Kristal, D.D.S. and a multitude of other con-artist are defective to their very core.
Like so many other establishment frauds, these creatures have tried to change the definition and meaning of Metabolic Typing originally developed and established by Dr. Kelley. Because of their limited mental capacities they cannot comprehend the total parameters of Metabolic Typing. These gentlemen want to rename and limit Metabolic Typing as Fast and Slow oxidation, which is a gross error.
