Nutritional Support

At our office, we believe that given the proper nutrition, your body has amazing capabilities of healing itself. We also believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patients needs. We can provide diet recommendations, but some patients may require nutritional supplementation as well. Unfortunately, a cup of spinach today does not have the same nutritional value as it did 50 years ago. For instance, to get the same amount of iron found in 1 cup of spinach in 1945, you would now have to eat 65 cups! Commercial farming has robbed the soil of precious minerals, and the modern fertilization used does not replenish all the nutrients taken from the soil with today’s commercial farming methods, which focus on mass production.

Computerized Nutritional Evaluations

Therefore, Dr. Carradine conducts computerized nutritional evaluations and also provides nutritional response testing for our patients. Our office proudly recommends Standard Process nutritional products and cleansing program. The quality of nutritional supplements hinges on the quality of the raw materials they are made from. That’s why Standard Process grows many of the raw materials used in their products on company-owned, organically certified farmland. Only after testing the mineral and nutrient levels of the soil do they plant organic seeds and nurture them through the growing season. After harvesting, Standard Process uses exclusive, patented separation and extraction processes and unique low temperature, high vacuum drying methods to ensure that the nutrients remain intact with all the goodness that nature has provided. Just as nutritional value is lost when vegetables are cooked, heat used in the processing of supplements likewise destroys nutrients. Unlike mass produced products containing high concentrations of only a few nutrients combined with synthetic materials, Standard Process products provide quality nutrients in natural forms not destroyed by processing, which are readily absorbed by your body.

Nutritional Response Testing

whole-foodsNutritional Response Testing is probably unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Here’s a brief overview of what we’re doing and why.

The Principle

We are all energy. Through Einstein’s famous equation we know that things we can sense with our five senses are merely different forms of energy. We employ this principle to determine stresses to your body by using your body’s “electrical system” as a guide.

The Analysis

We test your body’s neurological reflexes and acupuncture points linked to specific organs, tissues or functions of your body. We do this using muscle testing. Because it’s convenient, we usually use the strength of the muscles in your arm as an indicator. If a particular reflex isn’t working correctly, the strength of your extended arm weakens. This testing can reveal

• Food sensitivities
• Toxic metals
• Chemical stress
• Infections
• Scars tissue

Applying What We Learn

Next, we test specific nutritional formulas against those areas revealed by muscle weakness to find which ones serve to strengthen the weakened muscles. Once we do, we create a personalized nutritional supplement schedule designed to help correct the underlying deficiency. By precisely following the program, improved function and health are finally possible.

Whole Food Supplements

The supplements we use aren’t some cheap pharmaceutically engineered grocery store vitamins! Instead, we use vitamins derived from organically grown whole foods in which the active enzymes and the vital components are preserved using a vacuum-cold press process. These contain trace nutrients you can’t get in foods these days due to depleted soils, agricultural techniques and commercial food processing.


Many people we see have eaten themselves into their current state of ill health. The resulting deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, immunity and a loss of the ability to cope with the physical, emotional and chemical stresses of modern living. The good news is that it’s possible to reverse the process with Nutritional Response Testing. Call Carradine Chiropractic Center Inc at (330) 758-4446 to reverse the process!
