If your body is getting essential nutrients including carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, it will help your body function, which includes digesting, absorbing, metabolizing, and excreting which leads to homeostasis (balance).
Bad eating habits that include diets high in sugar and fats, may lead to fatigue and possible diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancers.
At Integrative Chiropractic & Natural Medicine we perform Nutrition Response Testing as a way to identify areas of dysfunction in the body and then use that information to develop a specific nutrition program to help restore health.

What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing does not diagnose or treat disease, but it's a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
We first do an analysis of the body. The analysis is done through muscle testing the body's own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.
Each Nutrition testing reflex represents a specific organ tissue or function and indicates the effect that energy or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Next, we test specific highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
Once we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule we have accomplished the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.

Wellness: What it is and what it isn't?
Wellness is not a thing or an event: It is a way of thinking. It is a way of life that maximizes an individual's potential. Wellness begins with a shift in consciousness. Your view of health moves from one of chance to one of choice. With this awareness comes responsibility. Our health care system has failed us because it has taught us how to be dependent. Wellness rejects that notion. Wellness see our health as our responsibility. It sees all our decisions and choices as having an affect on our health in the future.
Wellness is empowering. You accept control for your quality of life. It is a journey and we want to be your partner and guide on that journey. While you cannot add "years to your life", you can add "life to your years."
