How exactly does food affect your health?
Come find out as we introduce you to Nutrition Response Testing!

Wylde Center is partnering with Lotus of Life Chiropractic to offer this informative lunch and learn about the power of food, especially the food you grow or buy fresh from a farmer.

Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive method for determining exactly what’s at the root of chronic symptoms. It uses advanced
technology to remove the guesswork from healing and precisely pinpoint what nutrients will enable your body to recover.
