Nutrition Response Testing Success Stories
 

Nutrition Response Testing is so much more than what others offer as "Nutritionists" or "Intergrative Nutrition". Simply put, it first invioves a thorough Analysis* of your current state of health. This analysis we can simply perform and recheck upon any visit to our office to track and confirm your improvement. In the second step we take what we found in the Anaylsis and design a natural health improvement program specific to meet the needs and desires of your body. These steps are what make us different and are far more effective in improving your health than what others offer.

Below are just a few of the Success Stories from those we have helped at Living Well Nutrition.


What was it like before you came in to see us?    B.ST.P. 7/11/2014  
I started my nutritional program with Dr. Francine on March 26, 2014. I have a history of stomach complaints, bloating pain. I have had many diet failures. I am a stress eater. I wanted to lose weight and feel better. However, with a media overload and no one on one support, I failed.
My daughter gave me a Christmas present to Living Well Chiropractic and as corny as it may seem my life changed.

How is it now?
The diet changes that I have implemented are working. I feel it is the support and encouragement of Dr. Lajoie that is very beneficial. I never thought that I could make changes. It is all not perfect, but I am doing it, the diet and supplements. I call Dr. Lajoie my kitchen witch. I feel better and that’s just a simple fact. Thank You!!!

* The Analysis process with Nutrition Response Testing is non-invasive. That is to say there are no needles, blood tests, chemicals, or samples taken which need to be sent to labs for testing. Though, if you have had such testing done we may be able to use the results as a secondary means to confirm our findings.
