OUR APPROACH TO NUTRITION
At Achieve Wellness Chiropractic Center, we believe in a holistic approach to health. What you eat is a major factor in your overall wellness. There is a lot of conflicting information about what to eat, what foods to avoid, if you should be taking supplements and if so, which ones. What your body is able to absorb is a significant factor in determining the best nutritional path for you. Dr. Ley will help evaluate your present eating habits and based on your symptoms, lifestyle and goals will suggest a nutrition plan suited for you.

NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING™
The body has the full potential to fully repair itself when given the right nutrients. Nutrition Response Testing™ is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health.
If you are looking to restore your body to health without resorting to drugs, Nutrition Response Testing™ may be for you! This is a natural way to analyze your health, determine what is keeping you from healing, and find specific areas of your body that need help and in which specific nutrients you are deficient.
Our clinically proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced. We will have some questions for you before and during the testing. The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback needed. We use the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health change exactly as Nature intended.
WHAT ARE WE TESTING FOR?
Through our analysis, we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing – as it is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ. The testing includes organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc.
These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body and then the findings are analyzed.
Nutrition Response Testing™ is a great choice for people with one or more persistent health conditions. If you have tried other approaches with little to no results, our testing can shine a light on your underlying conditions and a more efficient path to health. Please see NRT Orientation under “Forms” on the Resources page.

As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. Americans are overfed and undernourished. We eat plenty but we are still starving. The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition needed to survive and be healthy. We are starving our bodies and we are sick. We suffer from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and the list goes on and on.
There is good news, however, given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal and repair itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with the nutrients we are not getting from our diet; all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients (plant nutrients) that foods possess in a way nature intended—in a whole food form. Whole food supplements complete the nutritional gap—whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods for use in supplements. When processed correctly, they supply a multitude of the plant’s components. Foods provide nutrients that work synergistically: that is, they work together to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health. A word of advice: Not all whole food supplements are the same. Many whole food supplements available in today’s marketplace range in quality. Companies are riding the wave of supplement popularity rather than focusing on commitment and quality.
ACHIEVE WELLNESS CHIROPRACTIC CENTER IS PROUD TO SPONSOR: NUTRAMETRIX
Millions of Americans seek nutritional advice and products from everyone BUT their own healthcare professionals. For example, vitamin store clerks – perhaps well intentioned – do not have the clinical expertise or the customer’s healthy history to accurately advise on nutritional supplementation.
In addition, inadequate nutritional intake – including specific nutrient deficiencies – may compromise health in a variety of ways including fatigue, brittle bones and teeth, memory loss and a weakened immune system, to name a few.
Your health professional is the best resource to recommend what lifestyle choices and nutritional supplements are most suited for your needs. With a complete line of high-quality nutritional products available in your health professional’s office, you no longer face the confusing and often frustrating experience of selecting from thousands of nutritional products on the market today.
See How NutraMetrix May Help You Today
Patients today live in a stressful and fast-paced world with toxic burdens like polluted air, chemicals in our water, and an overabundance of unhealthy foods with artificial ingredients. As a result, the market is flooded with low-quality, ineffective vitamin and mineral supplements, and diet fads that do not support overall health. nutraMetrix knows that both Health Professionals and their patients deserve the best products to support nutritional needs. This is why we put science and research behind our products.
The entire nutraMetrix product line of advanced nutraceuticals is formulated using the latest research, cutting-edge ingredients, and industry-leading best practices. Many nutraMetrix nutraceuticals are available using the Isotonix delivery system, designed to maximize your body’s ability to operate at its highest capacity. Isotonix products have been carefully formulated to offer enhanced bioavailability. These isotonic formulations are more effective than standard formulas because they offer maximum delivery of actives into the bloodstream since they are formulated as a replica of your body’s own fluids, such as tears, sweat and plasma.
While many products may contain fillers and binders, potentially slowing down delivery of vital nutrients, Isotonix products are delivered without fillers and binders; meaning the stomach has very little work to do since the pH and tonicity are carefully designed to allow the stomach to quickly release all of the nutrients into the small intestine. With our nutraMetrix Isotonix formulas, this process takes about five minutes, whereas a standard vitamin tablet can take up to four hours.
Effective vitamin and mineral supplements help to support a healthy immune system, promote the transformation of food into energy, support a healthy cardiovascular system, support strong bones, promote mental clarity, maintain normal metabolic functioning, promotes healthy growth and repair of tissues, help maintain normal blood pressure and promote water and electrolyte balance in the body. By taking charge of your well-being, not only will you feel healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and reach your personal weight goals, you will also slow down your natural aging process, improve your skin health and appearance, and maintain cognitive and mental focus!
