Nutritional Testing and Counseling

Few people get all of the  nutrients they need from the their food alone. Drs. Gleason and Weessies' holistic approach includes not only physical adjustments and neuromuscular balancing, but also nutrition. Based upon your testing, your examination, your diet, and health history,  they can incorporate nutritional supplements into a personal health plan for you. Coupled with chiropractic care, nutritional supplements can help people of all ages to see significant improvements in a wide range of health problems including pain, inflammation, fatigue, hormone imbalances, and digestive issues.

Many patients have found that Glucosamine, Omega 3 oils and anti-inflammatory herbs help to reduce pain. For fatigue, Drs. Gleason and Weessies often recommend adrenal formulas including B-vitamins, adaptogenic herbs and zinc. Digestive dysfunction can be addressed using pancreatic enzymes, fiber, and pre and pro-biotics.

Nutritional supplements are especially effective in getting at the root causes of children's health problems such as colic, ear infections, behavior and attention issues, sleep disturbances, blood sugar and skin problems.

With optimal nutrition, your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. For maximum benefits, your nutritional protocol should be specific to your individual needs. Using formulas we can minimize the number of individual pills you need to take each day.

Supplements should be of the highest quality and meet rigorous testing. We stock a wide range of supplements from the most reputable suppliers who  independently test each batch and guarantee that their products meet or exceed label potency.

Many of our supplements are now available at our new on-line store. If you have questions or would prefer to order by phone, just call the office at 616-846-5410.
