NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
What patients are saying
I had been battling with Lyme Disease which suppressed my immune system and caused many neurological symptoms. I experienced bouts of light headedness, dizziness, tremors,light sensitivity and memory issues. I
was unable to read or work for several months. After beginning Nutrition Response Testing with Dr. Bob, I started feeling better. My neurological issues have almost disappeared, I sleep better and have tons of energy.I have been so inspired by this program and Dr. Bob's commitment to his patient's health that I was finally able to quit
smoking after twenty years. Dr. Bob, "Thank you for changing my life when everyone else had given up!"
Knees - often felt arthritic and I would have to stop walking completely for several minutes till pain subsided.
Heart - Had serious blackouts sometimes several in a day. Ran out of breath quickly when under physical stress.
Had high levels of formaldehyde in my system due to exposure at work.
Now - knees are pain free, can run, do elliptical orbit machine for an hour at a time.
Now - Heart - almost no dizziness or episodes. Able to do whatever I need to without fear of blackouts.
Now - Formaldehyde is now virtually undetectable in my system.
I was very frustrated about my energy and digestion. Sometimes I had severe 36 hour sinus headaches. I felt like nothing I did was helping.
Now I have a good measure of energy and mostly my digestion is quiet and not complaining. I'll have an occasional dip when I eat wrong foods and I get right back on my diet - its worth it. Knowing good nutrition and having the exact supplements I need has given me my health back. Really I have my life back!
My son and I have live in New England for 14 years and every winter we suffer repeated bouts of upper respiratory conditions from sinus infections, to strep, to pneumonia. Each winter I develop a chronic cough that does not go away until May.
We began Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) in the summer and this winter we were illness free. I have not experienced by usual cough and have had NO infections or upper respiratory illnesses. My son has had only one viral respiratory infection and it cleared within days after NRT treatments, rather than taking medications.
I suffered for years with sciatica in my low back and leg after disc surgery, and needed adjustments every month to help relieve the pain. I started Nutrition Response testing, changed my diet and now only come in for wellness adjustments!
I had high blood pressure. Felt bloated after eating, acid reflux fro eating wrong foods, itchy scalp, hemorrhoids, wasn't happy the way I felt in general, low energy.
Blood pressure is down, nor more bloating, no acid reflux, no hemorrhoid problem , scalp not itchy - if I eat correctly! Lots ore energy. Bottom line - when I eat correctly - no Problems!
I am 48 years old and just celebrated my one (1) year anniversary on the Nutrition Response Testing program (the "NRT program") under the care and supervision of Dr. Robert Skarzynski.
1. What was it like before I came in to see Dr. Skarzynski?
Before I began the NRT program my body weight was 194 pounds. I am 5'9" in height and felt I needed to lose about 5-10 pounds. I felt my overall health was relatively good but I was experiencing a number of minor physical aliments, specifically 1) pain and swelling in my lover legs and ankles caused by varicose veins (my mother and sister have the same problem,only worse), 2)sinus infections (I was being diagnosed with one about every 1-2 years and taking large doses of antibiotics to feel better), 3) sore throat and common cold (I was getting sick about twice a year which I attributed to working in a large office with lots of unhealthy people), and 4) general fatigue, which I attributed to long hours sitting at a desk and computer with little or no exercise.
I consumed what I thought was a good diet consisting of organic fish (mostly wild salmon), poultry and meat, dairy products (organic yogurt and non-organic cheese),egg (non-organic), nuts (mostly almonds and almond butter), fruit (lots of non-organic oranges, bananas, blueberries, strawberries), vegetables (non-organic peppers,onions, broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes), breads (about 2-3 slices per day, non-organic), red wine (about one glass per day), dark chocolate (about 4-6 small pieces per day), green tea (about 4 cups per day), and water (about 8 glasses per day).
2. How is it now?
I have lost a total of 27 pounds and my waist size has dropped from 36 inches to 32 inches. I no longer experience pain and swelling in my lower leg and ankles. In the past year, I have not had a sinus infection, sore throat or common cold. During that period, my wife had 2 bouts of swine flu- like symptoms that knocked her out for a total of 3-4 weeks, and I was exposed to many people at work suffering from colds, stomach bugs, and the flu. As a result, I did not take any sick time from work. My energy level has increased significantly and I feel sharper, clearer, and more alert.
My diet no longer includes dairy products, nuts, fruit, wine, and dark chocolate. I now mostly consume wild salmon and other fish, organic poultry, beef and eggs, and large amounts of vegetables (organic and non-organic) My bread consumptions has decreased to about 4-6 slices per week (organic).
Before I began the NRT program I thought fruit was good for me and consumed large quantities. Since then I have learned fruit contains high amounts of sugar which in turn causes numerous health problems. I now find that when I consume fruit or a traditional dessert (cakes, pies, cookies) I don't feel as good as I normally do and I experience pain and swelling in my lower legs. This all disappears when I resume my regular diet- eating real food!
I have maintained this diet for almost a year and look and feel so much better then when I started. My wife, family and friends cannot believe the positive changes I have made under the NRT program. My only complaint about the NRT program is that after the first six (6) months none of my pants fit (my waist dropped from 36 inches to 32 inches) and I had to buy new ones. That's a good problem!
When I began the NRT program Dr. Skarzynski told me that my total annual costs for visits and appointments in the first year would be about $1,000.00- $1,500.00. I just celebrated my one (1) year anniversary on the NRT program, calculated my costs, and found that I spent the following:
That breaks down to $135.00 per month or about $4.44 per day. That's a great deal!
I am also spending my food and health care dollars more wisely. For example, I am no longer purchasing foods that are not good for me (dairy products, nuts,fruit, wine, and dark chocolate) and expensive supplements that don't help me (vitamin C, B complex, multi-vitamins).
To be successful on the NRT program you need discipline, dedication and an open mind. The NRT program has worked for me and I strongly recommend it for others.
