Metabolic Profiling

What are your individual ideal & damaging foods, supplements and lifestyle practices?
  • Are you confused about all that contradictory advice out there when it comes to food and exercise?
  • Are you stressed because it feels like there is nothing you can eat anymore – or feed to your children with a good conscience?
  • Have you tried what is “healthy” or “ethical”, but it doesn’t seem to work for you (you are still tired, have weight, digestive, mood or fertility issues)?
  • Would you like to better understand your or your child’s individual constitution, tendencies, pre-dispositions and needs when it comes to physical and psychological health?


Understand your individual Metabolic Type!


There is no “one-size-fits-all” – neither when it comes to food, nor when it comes to exercise, sleep, lifestyle… or even the lessons we have to learn in Life.


Even though as human beings we share a basic physiology, we are all unique on a metabolic and constitutional level. This means that while we all need high quality and pure “fuel” (there is no “junk food” Metabolic Type), there are huge differences when it comes to which fuel type and composition best supports health and fertility in each person. What works for one person might have no effect in another and even make a third one worse. For example, while some people will thrive on a diet relatively high in carbohydrates and relatively low in proteins and fats, others need the exact opposite. Some people will feel great on a vegetarian diet, while others absolutely need meat or fish to be at their best. The same food can have different effects in different people. For example, an orange can make some people more alkaline and others more acid. The same is true for red meat. People with similar characteristics, behaviors or symptoms can have completely different constitutions and thus needs. The bottom line is that instead of focusing on the food and its characteristics, we need to look at the person who is eating the food. 


We find this principle of biochemical individuality in all ancient healing systems, from Ayurveda to Traditional Chinese Medicine and also European monastic medicine. While each system has a slightly different way to assess someone’s individual constitution (observation, questionnaires, tongue and pulse diagnostics), they all look at the same base energies, even if they call them by different names or split them into more or less “elements”.


Over the years, I have developed my own method that allows me to accurately assess your energetic constitution and your Metabolic Type. This method combines observing and perceiving you with all my senses and a very thorough questionnaire which is based on elements of Metabolic Typing (certified as an advisor in 2012), Chinese Medicine (certified as an advisor in 2009), Ayurveda, Eating Psychology (certified as a coach in 2015), general nutrition (certified as a consultant in 2010), symptom symbolism and astrology.


Including astrology as an additional asset might seem a bit whowhoo, but it actually brings in an objective way to verify the results coming out of the questionnaire (which, as all questionnaires, always comes with a subjective bias). This is because each of the twelve zodiac signs can be allocated to one of the four elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air (note: these are not necessarily the ones you think, Virgo, for example, has a lot of nervous “Air” energy and thus does not fully count as “Earth”). In addition to that, each of the signs governs different areas of the body and psyche and has their own predispositions, tendencies and (nutritional) needs. Based on your birth data (date, exact time and place), I can calculate the relative strength of each of the elements and signs – precisely, quickly and objectively*.

*Please note that just a few minutes can already make a huge difference in the result, so if you do not have the exact time of your birth, please indicate that it is an estimate. I can still accurately assess your constitution based on your physical, psychological and diet-related traits and the questionnaire.


Additional advantages of including astrology as a tool are that a trained eye is able to identify which energies in your being are currently in conflict with each other, manifesting in dis-ease, and can advise you on how to balance them out through food and beyond, so that dis-ease can disappear. 


Metabolism is not static, but dynamic. As you move through your life, different energies get activated, thus creating shifts in your base constitution. This has to be taken into account. This is why it is important to distinguish between someone’s base constitution at birth (genetic profile) and any functional adaptations due to physical, emotional, mental, environmental or spiritual factors that alter gene expression – and as such (temporarily) change our needs. For example, while your genetic dominant element might be Air, the fact that right now you might be in a “Fire” phase, changes things. The same is true for external factors: the fact that it is hot outside, that you smoke and had chili con carne for lunch can push up your Fire to an extent that it takes over (temporarily or chronically depending on the circumstances).


This is why I take into account everything: your physical, psychological and diet-related traits, your current habits and symptoms (and their impact on the dynamics of your base profile), your birth data, and the results from the questionnaire, which in itself is based on the systems of Chinese Medicine, Chakras, Metabolic Typing, Symptom Symbolism and Eating Psychology.


Once you understand the different elements, the physical and psychological symptoms associated with them and which foods and drinks balance them out (or make them worse), you become empowered to flow with and adapt to the changing dynamics of your individual metabolism. It is my ultimate intention to transmit that kind of body wisdom to you bit by bit.


How does it work?

I can give a FULL profile version or a LIGHT profile version and will tune into what I feel best for you (and me) in your specific case.



Step 1: Personal Consultation

If you have never worked with me before, the process starts with a first 60min personal consultation in which:

  • We get to know each other, feel each other’s energy and whether or not we are a good match
  • You tell me about your motivation/issue
  • I ask you relevant questions about your situation, your symptoms and your current habits
  • I take you in with all my senses to already get intuitive downloads regarding your constitution and issues
  • We define your goal and intention and I share with you a first powerful practice to help you manifest your desire
  • I give you some first concrete advice
  • I explain you the next steps of the process (questionnaire)


Step 2: Questionnaire

After that session, you receive a detailed questionnaire, one part in word and another part in excel format, to complete and send back to me by e-mail before (or bring in person to) our next session.  At this stage you also provide other relevant documents or reports, such as blood test results or food intolerance testing results that you might dispose of. 


Step 3: At-home Analysis and Report

Once I have received all of your input. I do the puzzle at home and look at your issue from different angles (functional medicine, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Metabolic Typing, symptom symbolism, astrology, etc.). Everything combined allows me to accurately assess your profile and understand the root causes of your symptoms/issues. 

I then summarize my findings  in a detailed report, that includes a chart of your base constitution, the insights on your issues from the different perspectives, a list of supportive and less supportive foods and supplements, menu suggestions, lifestyle advice and soul lessons to explore.

As you can imagine, doing the puzzle and writing the report takes time, which I do charge for, even though it happens behind the scenes. 


Step 4: (Recorded) Result Session

We meet for a second session of 2 hours, in which we go through the report together and we will discuss concrete suggestions for changes to your diet and lifestyle. This usually includes:

  • Your dominant energies
  • Your main soul intentions, messages, lessons and conflicts and how these relate to your symptoms (and what to do about them)
  • Supportive foods and supplements
  • Damaging foods and supplements
  • Some concrete menu suggestions
  • Supportive/damaging lifestyle practices 
  • Supportive embodiment practices


This session is recorded so that you can listen to it again.


Step 5: Defining your Personal Camino

I then recommend that we agree on a personalized “Camino” program in which we implement the outlined steps together. Because it is not possible to understand – and thus solve – everything in just one session. Even people who are disciplined and are able to put things into practice by themselves benefit from someone actually walking the path alongside them to help them see and integrate their shadows (such as where they approach things too much discipline). It’s only by walking the path that knowledge is transformed into wisdom and can lead to lasting and embodied transformation. 

This will be a co-creation, we will decide together on how many sessions we would like to start with (a pack of 6 or whether we just take it session by session), the frequency of the sessions (1x per week, 1x every 2 weeks, etc.).


Full Profile:

The full-profile process consists of

  • a first 60min consultation
  • the questionnaire
  • the at-home analysis and report writing
  • the full report with graphs, lists and links
  • a second 2 hour recorded metabolic profiling session



The lighter version works as follows:


Step 1: Questionnaire

We skip the intake session and you directly fill in the questionnaire.


Step 2: At-home Analysis

I do a much shorter home-analysis, consisting only of the calculation of your astro-metabolic birth chart and looking at the symbolism of your main symptoms, without writing any report.


Step 3: Recorded Session

We meet for a 2 hour session in which I verify the findings from the home analysis and share my insights with you and give you concrete advice (diet, supplements, lifestyle, soul lessons) related to your issue.


Light Profile

The light-profile process consists of

  • the questionnaire
  • the shorter at-home analysis
  • a 2 hour recorded metabolic profiling session (no written report, graphs, lists, etc.)




I am currently experimenting with FREE energy flow. This means that I do not require you to pay me anything in exchange for my time or insight. On the other hand, I will only actually give my gifts to you, if I feel a true heart YES; if I would be willing to actually do it for free. So it is not a given that I will consent to provide you my services. The intention behind this experiment is that I no longer want to come from a place of “need” to make money (scarcity), I no longer want to “work” and I no longer want to have a “business”. Instead, I intend to practice being the LOVE that I know I am in my essence. And that implies giving my gifts freely, IF I actually have “fullness” to share, without expecting any direct energy exchange in return. That does not mean you cannot give back to me, if that is a desire you truly feel in your heart. But I no longer require it nor limit the exchange to a specific channel or form (money). I simply trust the Universal law of LOVE and energy flow that always keeps balance, and know that I am always sustained.

To apply for your session, please fill in the form below and I get back to you when I feel its right.


What clients are saying who received this service:

“The introduction of my astro-metabolic profile (“light” version) with Claudia has been deeply enlightening. It encouraged me to follow my intuitive food needs and continue the process that I already started. It also helped me understand my essential nourishment needs, and why I had some recurring symptoms (that are actually normal for my profile). Beautiful initiation to trust my body wisdom. Thank you, Claudia ! Gaia”


“Claudia is phenomenal! She does things with passion. A wealth of information. I would recommend her to anyone trying to improve their health and wellbeing.” E.



Receiving your Astro-Metabolic Profile is only the beginning. For any transformation to work, you need to make changes to your daily habits and your habitual patterns of thinking and acting. This is what we focus on during follow-up.
