Despite how much is spent on healthcare in the U.S., our population's state of health is poor. And it's getting worse. Much of this can be attributed to an environment that continues to get more toxic, increased stress in our daily lives and an abundance of processed food that is filled with chemicals, empty calories, sugar, salt and fat.
Improving the body's function through basic dietary and lifestyle changes while decreasing the many stresses from the environment is critical to improving health. This is where nutrition and lifestyle services can help. Find out more about the nutrition and lifestyle services at Natural Horizons Wellness Center:

- What is colon hydrotherapy?
The two most toxic areas of the body are on both ends of the gastrointestinal system, the mouth and the colon. The colon collects a large amount of waste and harmful microbes, which, if not eliminated completely, will accumulate in the colon. Low-fiber diets usually lead to incomplete elimination. This accumulation is self-perpetuating, blocking normal flow of wastes out of the body, interfering with the absorption of nutrients, and producing toxins that are then absorbed into the rest of the body.
Colon hydrotherapy is an extremely effective technique that introduces clean water into the colon (large intestine) through the anus, and washes away accumulated wastes and deposits from the opening and the interior walls of the colon. The result is a toxin-free, normally functioning large intestine that will foster the growth of good bacteria (probiotics).

- What should I bring to my first appointment?
Please bring all recent medical records, including lab work, test results, x-rays, scans, and any other information relevant to your condition.
If you have downloaded our Patient Intake Form, or received it by mail, please fill it out completely and bring it with you to your first appointment.
If you have not received the Patient Intake Form, please arrive approximately 20 minutes prior to your appointment, so that you will have ample time to fill it out prior to seeing your doctor.
- What is automatic response testing (A.R.T)?
Autonomic Response Testing is a way to access and find out the condition of the body by stressing the autonomic nervous system, which involves testing the strength of an isolated muscle, usually the shoulder (deltoid) muscle. A stressor of the body or a particular organ, and the muscle’s response to it, enables the tester to assess the health status of the tissue. ART can tell us, for example, if the liver is not functioning well; why it is not functioning well; what therapy or product(s) can help it; and the progress of the therapy.
ART is a form of alernative diagnosis that is widely used by alternative practitioners but which has not been widely tested nor accepted by conventional medicine.
