The short answer is No. ShaeWellness is very different to any “Type” concept. It considers many more variables that affect the way your body functions in real-time. A “Type” concept assumes that your constitution remains the same regardless of your circumstances. But it is now a commonly accepted fact that our environment has a large effect on your gene expression and body function, as does your age, as does your gender, as does your family history, etc. So ShaeWellness and the ph360 engine consider your “Type” as just one of many factors that it calculates in order to provide you with accurate health information based on your current circumstances. There are 4 blood types (according to Dr. D’Adamo’s “Blood Type Diet” science). That means these diets place the whole world population into 4 categories. ShaeWellness and ph360 do not place anyone into any 1 category and personalises everything with thousands of layers of details because we are all unique and not able to be grouped into such simple categories. The principles behind the genotype and blood type diets aren’t wrong, just like Ayurvedic types (kapha, vata, pitta). The genotype and the Ayurvedic type are all puzzle pieces we use in layers to create the unique diet that best fits you. Here’s an example: Kale, in this site, is identified as beneficial for everyone. However, if you have a risk of a lower functioning thyroid, kale must be avoided. And if you have a risk of kidney or gall stones, then kale must also be avoided. And if you have diverticulitis and some other inflammatory conditions of the digestive system, that kale must be reduced or juiced.

To access the recipes on Shae™ and ph360, you can access them through your “Food” link at the top of your screen. “Recipes” can be found at the bottom of the Food panel links. The recipes can also be accessed in your Food List! The platform is always expanding their recipes – if you would like to submit a recipe, please email us at

Once you register at you will be taken to your health assessment module. Each measurement will provide detailed instructions, videos, and graphics to guide you. It is recommended you take a weight and height measurement from within the past three weeks. Required:

  • Height and weight measurement from within past 3 weeks (important)
  • Soft measuring tape
  • Mirror

Within the ShaeWellness and ph360 wheel concept, the three somatotypes sit on a spectrum of Ectomorph>>Mesomorph>>Endomorph. A person will sit somewhere along this spectrum and can be classified as a pure Ecto, Ecto-Meso, Pure Meso, Meso-Endo, Pure Endo or Endo-Ecto based upon where they sit on this wheel. Where they sit will be determined by their skeletal measurements in the ph360 assessment.

Your Food list will update each time you update your measurements or questionnaire inside your personal health assessment!

When you log into your ph360 profile, the banner at the top of the page will take you to the Shae information page. You can also search the Apple App Store and Google Play directly.
