    That we are individuals each with a unique disposition and appearance may come as no surprise, but in this module, the concept of biochemical individuality is explored to a degree that surpasses common knowledge. Individual people differ not only in their genetic makeup, but also in their metabolic efficiency and nutritional requirements. More and more nutrition scientists are warning us about the implications of choosing the wrong food base. What is one man's food is another man's poison. Module Five takes the reader through an amazing and highly informative examination of eight classic bodytype models, each of which sorts the individual according to genetics, body shape, metabolic function, food cravings, personality traits, exercise tolerance, mood, emotion and predisposition to risk of disease and disability.

    From the blood type paradigm popularized by Dr. Peter D'Adamo, we move on to somatotyping, originally introduced by Dr. William Sheldon. The ancient concept of Ayurvedic constitution is detailed, as well as Dr. Abravanel's theory of glandular dominance. The missing link of nutrition is identified in principles that review ethnic origin, and a modern approach to bodytype classification is revealed through the science that probes autonomic nervous system dominance and chronotyping. Then a look back at the past as we investigate the twenty chemical types proposed by Norwegian homeopath Dr. Rocine.

    Why spend time on bodytyping? Because the best way to help ourselves achieve optimum health and excellent performance, as well as offset the pain and suffering associated with chronic disease and age, is to first determine our individual uniqueness and biological diversity.
