Nutrition Response Testing
“Let food be your medicine, and medicine your food.” Hippocrates
Here is a partial list of symptoms that may be

How does it work?
Using Nutrition Response Testing we analyze your body to find out what organs may need support. Next, we determine what organ-specific nutrition you need so your body can be nourished and heal itself. We work with you to customize a Clinical Nutritional Program including food choices, whole-food nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes if necessary.
We are simply feeding your body what it is asking for so you can heal and reorganize into a better you- like Mom Nature intends.
WHY WE USE WHOLE FOOD SUPPLEMENTS
FROM STANDARD PROCESS
A note from Dr. Kirsten about supplements
In a perfect world, you would get your nutritional needs met by the foods you eat. Unfortunately, even the best modern diets are not nutrient dense. This results in widespread vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can leave you weary.
In my opinion, food is our best medicine. I also believe supplementation should begin when a couple is preparing for pregnancy and continue from infancy through every stage of life.
There are very few supplement brands that I recommend to patients. If you keep with current news you know that many reports show supplements to be ineffective or even dangerous. This is true.
Supplements are not created equal, and price tag is no insurance of effectiveness. Nearly all over-the-counter vitamins or meal replacement shakes are pharmaceutically engineered. They contain chemical fractions of vitamins created in a lab. They do not resemble food. If your vitamins are not derived from whole foods they can make you even more deficient and nutritionally “out of balance”.
At Sojourn Wellness Center the supplements we recommend are whole food concentrates from Standard Process. Seeing my patients spend countless dollars on ineffective (and potentially harmful) ‘over-the counter’ vitamins motivated me to provide this important alternative. We see fantastic results and that’s what matters the most.
