Paul's Story

I, like you, desire to stay healthy, active and take care of loved ones. I, like you, ate well (or so I thought), took vitamins, had regular checkups, exercised regularly and believed I knew what I was doing. I was introduced to whole-food nutrition as a teenager and later in my life studied oriental medicine and became a practitioner. Despite my knowledge, in 1996 everything went terribly wrong.

After a fishing trip in Idaho while waiting for a plane home, my heartbeat became irregular. I found myself in the emergency room of the local hospital. After being examined, I was told I was dehydrated and was released. Upon returning home, I experienced a deep fatigue, couldn’t get from the bed to a chair without assistance, had continuing heart irregularities, panic attacks and a feeling of suffocation. The list went on and on. I reduced my hours at work and saw every kind of health practitioner: homeopath, osteopath, acupuncturist/herbalist, chiropractor etc. Each discipline helped a little. But years passed~I had reached a plateau. I was stuck!

Then in 2002 a friend introduced me to Dr. Freddie Ulan and the work he called Nutrition Response Testing. Dr. Ulan evaluated me, finding I had thyroid exhaustion, an immune challenge and digestive enzyme deficiencies. He put me on a health improvement program of whole-food supplements and dietary changes. Within weeks, I began to feel better. I hadn’t felt that good in years.

Amazed, I began to increase my professional studies, taking courses, doing research, and reading extensively about nutrition and Nutrition Response Testing. I applied what I had learned to my acupuncture patients, who were not progressing, and the results were undeniable. I was able to crack the toughest cases. I emailed Dr. Ulan and asked him to teach me everything he knew. Fortunately for me he is doing just that.

For all of you who have suffered more than your share with chronic health conditions such as weight problems, allergies, fatigue, chronic pain, chronic infections, repeated colds or flu, migraines, headaches, insomnia, PMS, menopause or a host of other conditions, do what I did and FIND THE MISSING PIECE with an evaluation using Nutrition Response Testing.

With Nutrition Response Testing, your unique needs will be addressed leaving no doubt as to what supplements or foods WILL work for you.
