Biosignature Modulation London
Is Biosignature Modulation Scientifically Valid?
A lot of people will always ask me if Biosignature Modulation has any scientific evidence showing the correlations with increases in body fat levels in specific sites in the body and physiological imbalances.
Whilst Charles popularised the idea that something beyond genetics influences body fat distribution, there has been some research looking at this relationship, although most of this research has been looking at central obesity and metabolic factors.
It can also be argued that general increases in body fat are the underlying cause of the hormonal imbalances and site specific fat distribution, thus a general fat loss approach will also go a long way in addressing the imbalances present.
Body fat itself is significantly metabolically active and as a result sends numerous messages and enzymes throughout the body, which can negatively effect hormone balance and also increase inflammation in the body, making it harder to lower your body fat. This is often why gaining body fat can become a vicious cycle, the more fat you have the more imbalanced your physiology becomes, thus the more fat you gain or the harder it is to lower your body fat.
Charles did see some relationships in the research and in his own clinical practice. As a result he is said to have ran his own research correlating thousands of skinfold assessments with blood testing looking for correlations between fat distribution and hormonal imbalances. What was born out of that was the concept of Biosignature Modulation.
Within scientific research you will find many studies correlating and demonstrating how mid-sectional body fat storage is influenced by poor glucose and insulin management and also the effects of poor stress hormone management on mid-sectional fat specifically around the belly button area.
Other skinfold sites have a little scientifically valid research to date although there have been some correlations made between disproportionate increases in body fat accumulation on the lower limbs and hormonal imbalances. I have seen clinically significant improvements in stubborn lower limb body fat when addressing hormonal imbalances and clearance issues through optimising digestive health and/or supporting the clearance of specific environmental compounds or toxins, however the relationships are by no means black and white and testing alongside Biosignature Modulation is often the best approach for those struggling with stubborn lower limb body fat distribution issues.
