Frequently Asked Questions
Clinicians at the Well of Life Center for Natural Health are not primary care physicians and function only as consultants. The staff at the Well of Life Center for Natural Health does not claim to be medical doctors and will not prescribe, diagnose, treat, prevent, alleviate, or cure any disease or condition. Well of Life Center for Natural Health, LLC, and its nutritional clinicians have been thoroughly trained and certified.
Have we seen and/or helped someone with the symptoms of ____________?
We have seen clients with various symptoms and diagnosis from diabetes to cancer, weight gain to digestive issues, Lyme disease to arthritis. Our goal is to support each client individually and support the body one organ at a time. Contact us to see if we have testimonials from our clients for a specific health issue.
Rest assured that during your initial consultation, your Clinician will be able to review YOUR specific health goals with you!
What do we do?
We utilize something called muscle response testing. It is a non-invasive way of assessing the body’s needs. By using your body and its biologically provided electrical system, we stress the organs, systems, and functions to determine the prioritized area of distress.
By discovering these areas of weakness in the body, our clinicians are able to determine the root cause, and the reason for your symptoms. Instead of treating your symptoms with a generic recommendation that might not be exactly right for YOUR individual body.
We offer three levels of nutritional care here at the Well.
What are the three levels of Nutritional Care?
Nutritional Response Testing with our Associate Clinicians: We recommend this level of care for someone who is experiencing mild to moderate symptoms, or is looking for an overall wellness plan to maintain their healthy lifestyle and quality of life.
Nutritional Response Testing with our Senior Clinician: We recommend this level of care for someone who is experiencing moderate to severe symptoms, or desires to address deeper levels of healing for their physical or emotional well-being.
Critical Care Program with our Critical Care Clinician: Our critical care program is designed for those individuals who are experiencing severe or chronic symptoms, or have received a critical diagnosis which they wish to address proactively.
If you believe that you fit into this category, we offer an application process to determine if this is the best program for you. This application will be sent to you after you have completed and submitted this form. Our client advocate will reach out to you personally to schedule you with our critical care clinician, or to recommend another clinician if we discover that you do not require this level of care.
What will my first appointment consist of?
Your first visit will last approximately 2.5 – 3 hours, and will include a viewing of our New Client video, your Initial Consultation with one of our Clinicians, and your Report of Findings. You will leave this appointment with an understanding of the specific needs of your body, as well as a personalized supplemental protocol based on those areas of need.
During your initial consultation, your Clinician will review your current health goals and do a complete muscle response testing assessment with you to identify your individual health needs and how we can use nutritional supplements to support your body accordingly!

- High fever
- Difficulty breathing
- Severe allergic reaction to medication or supplement
- Loss of consciousness

Fragrances can cause “allergic-type” reactions to people dealing with chemical toxicity, or who are detoxifying or dealing with severe symptoms. With this in mind, we ask our staff and clients to refrain from wearing scented lotions, perfumes or colognes in our offices. This helps us maintain a healing environment where everyone can be comfortable. If you come in for an appointment and are wearing a scent, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.
