How to get started and What do my visits look like?
Autonomic Response Testing is a critical component of our Functional Medicine Program. You schedule an initial 60-minute consultation with one of our practitioners to start your path to wellness. You provide the details of what led up to the onset of your symptoms, including any pertinent health history.
Your practitioner will schedule you to see Dr. Nick for your Autonomic Response Testing visit to test for infections within organ systems and what treatment may be appropriate to resolve the infections. ART also verifies which supplements are appropriate for treatment and what supplements you are sensitive to.
What about Continued Care?
On your Report of Findings appointment, you will meet with the doctor to review the findings from the analysis and muscle testing. You will receive custom dietary and supplement protocols based on your results. The doctors of IWG have different areas of expertise but they are always communicating and co-managing patient cases. Upon recommending care, the doctors may or may not suggest other services to compliment your goals.
It’s really nice to know that when I’m coming in, no matter how I feel, I’m going to walk out feeling much better. You guys are not just my doctors, you’re like family and friends.
Physical Medicine Program
I was thrilled to be able to get my 8 year old son well without the use of antibiotics. This past winter when Ryan got the worst cough and cold he has ever experienced and a pediatrician wanted him to take ten days of medication for an ear infection I knew it was time to try what so many others have told me about. Chiropractic care isn’t just for the guy with a bad back. It’s about our whole body! Dr. Klim had wonderful suggestions for supporting Ryan’s immune system and was so patient and gentle explaining each adjustment to myself and son along the way. Ryan still talks about how much he loved Dr. Klim so much so his little brother has been hoping to get sick so he can go too!
