Get clarity

on how infections are affecting your body and how to get rid of them.

Autonomic Response Testing (ART) / IWG Style /

A method of testing that clarifies different types of infections in the body, the location of the infections, and the best treatment method to resolve the infections. ART is a collaborative method of evaluation used in conjunction with the Functional Medicine Program and many of our Custom Programs at IWG.

Who can Benefit from Autonomic Response Testing?

You are looking for an alternative approach to improve any of the symptoms listed below.

  1. You have struggled to get the right diagnosis.
  2. You are looking for a non-invasive approach to diagnosis infections.
  3. You are looking for a way to know if the supplements you are taking are actually working.

  5. You want a non-invasive way to fight infections.

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.

Congrats on a New You, New Body, and a New Life!
