Nutrition is the science of how food and nutrients affect your health and well-being. A nutrition plan is a guide that helps you meet your dietary needs and goals by giving you dietary recommendations. A clinically designed nutrition plan is based on testing and is created specifically for your nutrition and health needs.
There are several reasons you may need a clinically designed nutrition plan.
To prevent or treat diseases and disorders
You may be surprised by how what you eat and how your body processes nutrients can affect your health. For example, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, and digestive problems are all related to nutrition. A clinically designed nutrition plan based on testing your body’s responses to nutrients can help you prevent or address these conditions by:
- Providing you with the right amount and type of nutrients that your body needs
- Balancing your blood sugar and cholesterol levels
- Reducing inflammation
- Supporting your immune system and detoxification pathways
- Modifying your diet according to your specific condition or medications
A qualified Nutrition Response Testing® practitioner can assess your nutrition and health status and needs. After testing, these healthcare professionals can provide you with a personalized diet and supplement regimen. They will also monitor your response to the program and educate you on how your nutrition affects your health
To optimize your health and wellness
The Standard American Diet is demonstrably not producing healthy people. Just look at the health stats or observe the people in your environment.
Even if you don’t have a specific disease or disorder, a clinically designed nutrition plan based on testing your physical condition and your responses to food, can optimize your health and wellness.
A clinically designed nutrition plan can help you:
- Achieve or maintain a healthy weight.
- Enhance your energy and mood.
- Improve your sleep quality and cognitive function.
- Boost your physical performance and recovery.
- Prevent nutrient deficiencies or excesses.
- Promote healthy aging and longevity.
A nutrition plan designed for you can help you identify your health goals, develop a personalized shopping list, provide follow-up support and feedback, and refer you to other resources, if needed.
To suit your food preferences and lifestyle

It takes into account your food preferences, allergies, intolerances, sensitivities, cultural background, ethical values, budget, schedule, and other factors that affect your food choices and habits. it can help you:
- Enjoy delicious and nutritious foods that fit your taste buds and dietary needs.
- Discover new foods, recipes, cuisines, and cooking methods.
