You’re a Diplomat

Welcome to your HealthType community

What is it like to be a Diplomat?

By nature, Diplomats are dependable, easy-going, and enjoy pleasurable experiences. You do well with a predictable, patterned routine and, when motivated by a fierce desire, your focus and discipline allows you to achieve any goals you set.

You enjoy learning and will obey the rules unless the rules prevent your enjoyment. You are a dependable employee and friend, are easy to get along with and, with your enduring sense of fairness and your ability to recognize and honor various points of view, are a natural mediator and manager.

Your body is built to resist harsh circumstances and you may notice that you have less sensitivity to pain than others. You are extremely resilient, don’t often complain about being sick and weak, and are rarely bothered by small things. You can lift weights easily, and have the potential for exceptional endurance. Often your physical strength is matched by mental strength and endurance too!

How do we know this? It’s in your body.

You’ve just answered a few questions from the HealthType Test and, from those simple answers, science can recognize how your body developed from the womb which, in turn, allows us to understand how your body naturally functions.

Really? You ask. Yes, really.

In a nutshell, it’s like this – as an embryo develops, one of the germ layers (through gastrulation) may become more dominant, influencing which organs are strongest, and which neurotransmitters and hormones will be most prevalent.

The germ layers that developed with predominance in your case were the endoderm and ectoderm. The bronchi, lungs, the digestive tube composed of the pancreas, liver, thymus and prostate, the pharynx and thyroid develop from the endoderm layer.The ectoderm leads to the development of the neural tube (brain and spinal cord), the neural crest and the outer epithelium of the body (the skin).

This focus on the gut tube means that you tend to have a more efficient metabolism – your body naturally knows how to make the most of the energy you ingest and doesn’t waste any of it. In fact, it’s true talent is conserving energy – storing it for you for rainy days to deal with any unexpected circumstances that may arise.  In years gone by this would have been drought, famine or plagues but these days we rarely see these disastrous events but the human body has not yet evolved to reflect the change in our lifestyle and so those extra nutrients often stay stored as fat. The development focus on your nervous system may also mean that your system can stay on alert, with lots of ruminating thought (sometimes as procrastination) and even a sensitivity to sounds, stress and other external stimuli.

Your HealthType is just the beginning

Your true genetic pathway to abundance and fulfilment can be discovered when you analyze your gene expression and identify precisely the aspects in everyday life that will enable you to live to your greatest potential.

Precise guidance into daily activities like what you eat, your relationships, physical activities, and even your living arrangements can let you concentrate on the things that matter most.

Simply secure the app, fulfil the assessment and be supported through every day, knowing the health and wellness advice you get aligns perfectly with who you naturally are.

A Healthy Body Just Makes Life Even Better

As a Diplomat, you have the body that was revered as god-like by the ancients. Long, strong and enduring. You’re a natural adventurer so boring activities won’t sit well with you and it’s best to avoid exercises that may lead to injury to the connective tissue in your knees or ankles.

However not only is it what you do, but how, when, where and with whom you do it that makes the difference between a healthy lifestyle and a life that overflows with health.

Knowing your unique chronobiological, social and environmental needs allow you to make the absolute most of your body and the time you spend working out.

Going for a long lunch with a friend, meeting for a decadent brunch, or catching up for a relaxed breakfast is a great, healthy way to enjoy the foods you eat – then it’s just a matter of choosing the right things from the menu.

You physically have the longest gut of all HealthTypes so it takes time to digest. Give yourself a good 5-6 hours between meals so your body has time to digest, retrieve those nutrients and then be good to go again for the next meal.

Just knowing and understanding the simple fact that snacking or having 5-6 small meals in a day (although it’s great for some bodies) is NOT great for you, can be life-changing.

Imagine the possibility of effortlessly knowing precisely which foods will you support you best.

Water is life.

A moist environment is your ideal ally for a peaceful lifestyle. Have you noticed that already? You get thirsty a lot? Too much dryness can be a big stress for your body as it will continually need to work to cool you down.

When your surrounding environment is continuously dry, like the climate or in air-conditioning, it becomes a constant stress on your body. Chronic, ongoing stress contributes to sickness and ill-health like pancreatic issues, tumors, tendon pain and inflammation or hypotonicity, dehydration, and mineral and vitamin malabsorption. So how can you remove that daily compounding stress so you can improve your quality of life? Just keep the liquids up o the inside and outside of your body.

It is not only climate that affects your health – lighting, textiles, humidity, colour, temperature, organization and other incidental aspects in your surroundings can add or remove stress from your life. Using this knowledge for ‘set and forget’ health support can radically improve your satisfaction and happiness in daily life.

What’s the difference?

Between the Diplomat content and other HealthTypes..? Sometimes it’s not so much the content but the eyes through which you view it. We invite you to browse through the whole HTCommunity site to see for yourself – here are some of the difference you’ll note.

Imagery

Different bodies will inherently respond better to different things, for example, the Activator imagery is full of movement, action and excitement and the Guardian page oozes family, connection, food, community and abundance. See if you can pick the key ‘themes’ for each HT page you visit.

Bodies

You’ll note that the bodies look different when you visit a different HealthType page. We want you to be surrounded with role models who are like you so you can be inspired by bodies that are relevant and achievable as well as totally gorgeous!

Content

The language, the topics and how they are presented can be different for each HealthType. For example, the news on the Guardian page will be focused on things like communities and resources, whereas the Sensor page may concentrate on positive world news and Crusader news may hone in on technology and business.

Contributors

The contributors to each HealthType page ARE that HealthType. From a range of ages, experiences and walks of life so you get great variety of content from people you’ll naturally resonate with. If you’d like to contribute to your HealthType page just get in touch!

In a word, Dignified.

You often have a considerable presence in the world that goes along with substantial inner strength and endurance. Like an ancient Grecian deity, you lead with an outstretched hand of peace but are willing to become a fierce warrior if required. At the least you can become immovable in your posture and, more often than with force, you express your strength with this indomitable, immovable essence.

Your style reflects your presence. Strong, sturdy, comfortable, with a focus on a deep connection to nature through colour, texture and placement.
