Nutrition goes along with the chiropractic philosophy -treating the whole person by helping the body to naturally heal. Most people do not consume the necessary vitamins through their diet alone. These nutrient deficiencies often increase risk factors for many common health problems. Our office offers nutritional supplements from Standard Process, Anabolic Laboratories and MediHerb.
The key to Standard Process whole food nutritional products is the High-Quality Ingredients they use. Nutritional scientists are continually discovering what Standard Process has taught and practiced since 1929: Micronutrients, both known and unknown, found only in whole foods are more essential to health than selected vitamins and minerals taken away from their complete food matrix.
There product formulas contain unique combinations of whole foods (whole plants, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, and botanicals), which contain essential vitamins, phytonutrients, and minerals to provide optimal health for patients. They employ Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and follow current FDA GMPs. These GMPs are similar to pharmaceutical GMPs in some important respects. They address everything from raw material handling and sampling through the manufacturing process to finished goods and product labeling. They control all manufacturing processes, including milling, mixing, tableting, bottling, and packaging.
Their quality control methods ensure all label claims are met. Tests are performed after critical stages of production to ensure products are free of bacterial contamination. Throughout the manufacturing process they perform repeat testing this enables them to ensure quality and safety. On average, a product is tested six times. Every week, degreed scientists in our full-scale microbiology and chemistry laboratories perform as many as 400 tests on raw materials, product batches, and finished products. They use testing procedures approved by the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC). Degreed Microbiologists and Chemists are onsite. Standard Process takes great pride in its quality assurance program. Their team of trained microbiologists and chemists work hard to guarantee our customers receive the best quality products on the market today.

The philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner once said, “For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. I believe that there is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature.”
