Project Description


Author. Researcher. Innovator. Formulator. Educator. Consultant.

Bill Wolcott is a leading authority in the rapidly emerging field of customized nutrition. For over 38 years he has provided technical consulting services to health professionals including physicians, dentists, naturopaths, chiropractors, and nutritionists. In this capacity, Bill develops computer-based, customized Metabolic Typing® nutritional and ecological lifestyle profiles.

Practitioners in over 40 countries throughout the world that trained in Bill’s Healthexcel System of Metabolic Typing® use his patient-specific nutritional Metabolic Type® profiles and unique Metabolic Type® formulations as the basis of therapeutic protocols that are tailored to the highly individualized needs of patients. Over the years these customized protocols have proven to be remarkably effective in helping to resolve all manner of chronic health disorders.


Over the course of the 20th century, many leading scientists and clinicians contributed to the evolution of customized nutrition – a field that is also known as “Metabolic Typing®.” As a specialized scientific discipline, Metabolic Typing® is the culmination of 100 years of pioneering research on the part of many of the century’s most innovative nutritional researchers. In the late 1970s, Bill Wolcott joined this cadre of researchers and since that time has played a central role in advancing the field. In 1983, Bill made a breakthrough discovery which he called The Dominance Factor which greatly advanced the clinical efficacy of Metabolic Typing®.

In 1987, Bill founded Healthexcel, a unique technical consulting organization based in the foothills of the North Cascades in Winthrop, Washington. Bill’s highly specialized expertise in the area of nutritional biochemistry, combined with his abilities in the realm of computer science, have made Healthexcel the leading edge provider of Metabolic Typing® training, products, analyses, and services. In 1999, Bill and science writer Trish Fahey co-wrote the best-selling book, The Metabolic Typing Diet (Doubleday 2000), the definitive work on customized nutrition and Metabolic Typing®.
