Having a well-nourished body is key to good health. Chiropractic care is by nature holistic, meaning it focuses on the overall health of the body, not just treating a particular symptom. So whether you’re recovering from an automobile accident or trying to manage a health condition like scoliosis, nutrition plays a role in successfully treating your condition.
At Active Lifestyle Medical, your practitioner wants to help you achieve the best overall health. Nutrition can help you heal faster and can address underlying causes of pain, weight gain, and other factors that impact your health. They offer Nutrition Response Testing™ and Body Composition Analysis to help improve your health and treat illnesses that can affect your quality of life.
Nutrition Response Testing IN Sterling
Many health conditions can be treated with good nutrition. However, first, you need to know what’s going on in the body and what nutrients it needs. Nutrition Response Testing, (NRT) is a noninvasive technique that helps determine nutritional deficiencies affecting your body and causing ill health. There are no needles or invasive procedures needed for this analysis.
Active Lifestyle Medical offers NRT, which is an accurate, scientific method of determining health conditions caused by nutritional issues. The results can help your practitioner prescribe the best nutritional program to help improve your health.
IS JUST EATING HEALTHY GOOD ENOUGH?
Eating a healthy diet is important, but many people require more nutrients than they’re getting from their foods. If you’re healing from an injury or have a health condition that’s depleting vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, you may need a specialized diet and supplements tailored to your body’s specific needs.
A Body Composition Analysis can help determine your health status by measuring your body fat, visceral fat, lean body mass and hydration level. Whether you have a nutrient deficiency that's harming your health, or you need supplementation to achieve better health, your specialist at Active Lifestyle Medical can assess your nutritional needs and offer a program to enhance your health.
A MESSAGE FROM THE DOCTOR
For over 30 years, I have had patients respond well and heal from conditions that many didn’t relate to their spine....conditions like allergies, digestive issues, chronic sinus issues, etc. But like many doctors, there were a few cases that I just didn’t seem to get optimum results with. These were the cases that kept me frustrated and feeling like there was still something I didn’t know. It was only while dealing with my own heart health condition that I finally found my answer. See, being extensively trained in nutrition, I knew my body needed supplementation, and I was taking large doses of supplements yet not getting the results I expected.
My Associate Doctor at the time gave me a book to read regarding whole food supplements versus synthetic vitamins. Once I recognized the difference, I understood that while synthetic vitamins are a benefit, only whole food supplements actually assist the body in healing. I immediately switched my supplements to whole food supplements and within 3 days, I felt spectacular. I contacted the representative for the most respected whole food supplementation company in the US called Standard Process, and switched all the supplements in my office to whole food supplements.
Not long after I switched the practice to whole food supplements, I learned of a technique called ‘Nutrition Response Testing’ that utilized muscle testing to find nutritional barriers in
the body. I was doubtful of its validity because my past experience with muscle testing led me to believe that it was subjective, and therefore not usable as a standard technique. However, I continued to hear remarkable successes from doctors and patients utilizing Nutrition Response Testing. I decided to investigate it further for myself.
I attended a seminar and learned there were things about the muscle testing that I did not know and had not understood, that now made sense. I underwent an evaluation during the seminar and discovered that even though I was ‘healthy’ compared to the general public, I was ‘blocked’ from healing properly. This explained why I couldn’t get the result expected in my own health. I was given 2 supplements... 5 pills total to take. (Quite a difference from the hundreds of pills I used to take!)
Everything started changing. I was totally on board and continued training in Nutrition Response Testing so I could provide this service for my patients, and in over 10 years have helped all types of cases that have not been helped elsewhere.
What started off as an adventure to help myself became a quest that follows my purpose. To help as many people as I can, and get them to become examples of health, able to educate others on how to be and stay healthy.
