Year-round Monitoring of Metabolism and Performance

  • For the most demanding lifestyles
  • To maintain the highest level of productivity 


Key factors related to nutrition, exercise, control of stress, and sleep can limit the productivity of people in the most demanding environments.  Metabolic test results and testimonials from busy executives and others under pressure all show this.  

They show that the harder an individual works, concentrates, or stresses over issues, the greater the utilization of specific nutrients.  These nutrients must be replenished to maintain the high level of intensity or activity many people are faced with in their daily lives.  (Along with adequate quality sleep, and moderate exercise necessary to cleanse the body’s lymph system.)

The success of athletic, business, and medical clients using our metabolic testing and custom nutrition  programs demonstrates the mental and physical advantage possible when nutrient needs specific to that individuals test results are consumed during periods of intense activity (or healing).

A balanced intake of nutrients specific to an individual’s needs will help that person excel throughout the year when faced with a demanding schedule.  That balance intake is key to preventing illness, most irregular heart beats, high blood pressure, many types of avoidable muscle spasms, sleep disorders, and/or other stress-related problems. 

This is because specific combinations of nutrients are required to sustain rapid & confident thinking, immune system function, and muscle function and recovery.  And one person’s relative needs of each those nutrients will be specific to his or her eating habits and lifestyle. 

Paragon’s nutrient and metabolism monitoring programs allow clients to determine what those needs are and to remain healthy, relaxed, and productive under pressure.  On the other hand, it’s easy to identify individuals who start out working hard, but then run out of gas.  This can easily be prevented with simple nutrition and metabolic monitoring.   

Background for Researchers and Physicians: 

In 1987, Paragon began providing top world class amateur and professional athletes with year round consulting, nutrition monitoring, and planning of training programs to increase speed, strength, endurance, and the ability to perform under pressure.  

Those athlete’s record setting performances resulted in many requests from busy executives to help them get back on track and to perform at a high level.  

So, in 1992 Paragon began working with its first such clients (5 males, aged 35 - 39), and the results were surprising and unexpected.  Full medical profiles were done.  Among other issues, problematic irregular heart-beats and arrhythmias were revealed in 4 of 5 individuals, as well as one severe case of 25-30 planter warts on each foot, despite many previous doctor’s attempts to treat them.  Remarkably, in just 6 weeks the arrhythmias of 3 of the 4 clients disappeared, and within 3 months the one client’s warts had also disappeared.  These were the first of many surprising results ultimately seen in Paragon’s Medical Case Studies.  

Paragon’s year round monitoring of nutrition, metabolism, and performance provides any extremely busy individual with a significant advantage in dealing with stress because North America’s food supply is so problematic for higher performance, as it’s overly processed, depleted of minerals, and high in toxins.  

Because of this, any high performance individual: 

  • requires specific bioavailable supplements; 
  • should avoid many foods thought to be “healthy”; and  
  • should be monitored using simple key indicators (i.e. hair mineral levels, saliva and urine pH, stool color, morning resting heart rate, etc.) to ensure metabolism and regeneration are maximized.

Paragon pioneered the most advanced nutrition chemistry and metabolism testing programs for improving health and maximizing performance throughout the year.  For information email or call 1 514 278-3935.
