Do you know your BioSignature?

Column #26, 15th September 2007

Qualifying as a BioSignature Technician earlier this year was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.  It answered many questions I had on topics related to nutrition, supplementation, achieving good health and avoiding and recovering from illness and disease.

BioSignature Development

Charles Poliquin, a renowned strength and conditioning coach, developed the BioSignature Modulation Technique to improve health and performance in a wide range of clients including many elite athletes.  Read on or have a look at to find out more.

Spot Reduction of Body Fat

In terms of fat loss, is spot reduction possible?  There is certainly the demand for it, with the increasing availability of pill and cream products, various techniques and pieces of equipment that claim to spot reduce.  The jury is still out on them, but Poliquin has developed this scientific method that can target specific areas for fat loss.

The Principle of The BioSignature Technique

The smooth functioning of our body and our body composition is largely dependent on all of its systems working efficiently and its biochemistry being in balance.  When they are out of balance then problems occur:

  • Increased body fat %
  • Greater risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Lower energy levels
  • Reduced brain function
  • ……..and any other dysfunction you can think of….

By measuring various body fat skinfolds on the body we can calculate the distribution of relative fat about the body.  There maybe one problem area, or several, but once you are armed with this knowledge you can get to work on making targeted changes.  Based on research, the distribution is related to hormonal levels, which hold the key to the changes you can make.

What Type of Changes?

As discussed in previous articles, we must treat the cause of a problem, not just the symptoms.  Typical changes the BioSignature approach will advise include:

  • Nutritional
  • Exercise
  • Sleep patterns
  • Supplementation

Again, each of the above will be designed specifically to modulate the individual’s profile.

Will it Work for Everybody?

It is not a fad or one-size-fits-all diet.  Its principle is that everybody is different and requires very specific approaches to develop good health, free from illness and disease.

This method of hormonal profiling is being used to great effect and is a tool along with others (such as genetic profiling, blood/hair analysis, stool analysis) that provide information about the functioning of the body, so that we can make informed decisions about managing our health.

You will find that it is an approach that is based around what we need to be able function optimally.  All our systems should be in balance.  At Functional Trainer the technique is integrated into the established holistic approach, which enhances the management of factors such as exercise and nutrition.
