At Riverwalk Health Group good nutrition supports our patients receiving chiropractic and physical therapy.
Healing times are reduced and optimal results are achieved when we complement our care with whole food nutritional supplements.
How do we determine what our patients need, how much is needed and when to reduce or complete the use of a supplement is by testing?
Trained in the use of microbiome testing as well as Omega 3 vs. 6 ratios our doctors can advise you properly to obtain normal body balance.

The Omega Quant Test
The Microbiome Test
Nutrition Response Testing a non invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying cause of illness and non optimum health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to obtain and maintain optimum health.
The analysis is done through testing the body’s neurological reflexes. These bio electric reflexes are derived from the part of the nerve system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ.
Popular, commercial diet plans often consist of processed foods and do not contain components of purification. The purification program is in fact not a weight-loss centered diet at all. Although weight loss is a common side-effect, it is not the focus. Weight-loss without purification still leaves the need for detoxification and nutritional support. This program is focused on creating habits of healthy eating that will sustain you long after the 21 days are over. Also, most programs lack an “exit strategy” for you to maintain your new healthy habits. The focus is on REAL food, not food substitutes or man-made powders and prepackaged meals. I provide coaching and support every step of the way.
Coffee, Alcohol and Sodas – Beyond the sugar content (real or fake), the active ingredient in soda, phosphoric acid, causes a leeching of calcium and other minerals from our bodies.
Sugar– Sugar costs you more than your teeth. At an average consumption rate of 130 pounds, per person, per year, sugar depresses cell mediated immunity by 50% for 120 minutes after ingestion of 75 grams.
Other Foods – condiments with sugar, colorings, corn syrup, toxic additives (salad dressing,
bbq sauce, marinade), artificial sweeteners (NutraSweet/Equal/Splenda), MSG, margarine and other artificial man-made butters and spreads, candy and chocolate, wheat, corn, and processed foods such as bagels, breads and pasta
The following can be healthy, but do not consume during the 21-day period: beans (except for precise portions of lentils), most grains, nuts, soy, dairy (except real butter). In depth explanation on these principles are explained on your first visit.
Fasting is not a part of this program, eating real food is. You eat PLENTY of nutrient dense food on this program. Nor is this a juice fast. Although you will be asked to remove certain foods from your diet, there is still plenty you will be allowed to eat.
Yes, absolutely. This is actually not a weight loss program. Although the majority of people end up losing weight, the program can be modified to suit your needs.
It can be done twice per year.
Yes, the products (supplements and shake mix) are vegetarian. The eating plan that accompanies the program can either be vegetarian or not. Standard Process products, considered the gold standard in the supplement industry, are used to assist the body in detoxification.
No, insurance is not accepted. Depending on your own individual plan, your flex plan may pay for this. I can provide a receipt to assist your efforts.
Daily moderate exercise is recommended, such as walking. Some people don’t exercise for the first few days and that is fine. Intense exercise is not recommended. No triathlon training during this program!
Reactions can occur and should be expected. In fact, this is generally a good thing! Examples include but are not limited to increased sweating, increased urine and bowel movements, urine color and odor changes. This is natural as the body starts to burn fat and normal insulin levels drop. This should level out after a few days. For this reason, I often like to have people start on a Thursday or Friday so that you have the weekend for extra rest.
Increased bowel movements are a normal response to increased toxin clearing.
In some instances, some people will experience a throbbing sensation in the head, generalized aches, itchy skin and fatigue. These symptoms are a normal response to cleaning away poisons and should pass after the first few days. Once they pass, hold on, you should start to feel better than you have in years!
Yes, you can. Be sure to let me know so I can tailor the program for you.
Diabetics actually benefit from the program as it is designed to help balance blood sugar metabolism. If you are on insulin, always check blood sugar before injecting. You will be asked to eat smaller meals more frequently. Blueberries, Sweet Potatoes, and Lentils (1 cup/day) will be used to support your blood sugar. You may actually need a reduced medication dosage after you complete the 21 days.
Yes, kids age 14 and up can participate. Sometimes an entire family will do it together which is awesome for support. Kids will take less supplements than adults do and will have more protein as well.
I have been using Standard Process products for 20 years in our office and in my own personal life. My children take Standard Process vitamins, and our whole family enjoys an excellent level of health.
I really believe that it is one of the best products you can get. I’ve even visited the factory and walked the 450 acre pristine organic farm where the ingredients for the supplements are grown. Standard Process has been operational for 86 years and was green, organic and all natural before it became “trendy”.
Yes, you can! And doing it with a friend or group of friends is a wonderful way to spend time together and hold each other accountable. The minimum size needed for a group discount is 4 people. All visits will have to occur at the same time.
You can form your own group and have me coach you, but regular rates apply if a minimum of four people is not reached. The first visit is the most important. So, even if your friends can’t make follow up visits, they can still participate successfully.
Although I typically have kits in stock, I will need a 5 day notice in order to get you started. Contact me here to let me know of your interest, and I can send you a schedule link to make an appointment.
