The Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor was founded in 2004. NHCAA evolved from Dr. Darren Schmidt’s first office called The Wholistic Doctor which heopened in Ann Arbor in 2000. In 2004 after searching for more than a decade for natural health remedies that would make people truly healthy Dr. Schmidt discovered Nutrition Response Testing.
The success was immediate, using Nutrition Response Testing℠ real food, whole-food supplements and traditional chiropractic he finally started getting the results he’d knew were possible. Patients began attaining stable health improvement that lasted. Where Chiropractic alone couldn’t handle every health challenge paired with Nutrition Response Testing he was now able to help people achieve Total Health Restoration.
Since the transformation to the Nutritional Healing Center in 2004 the purpose has been to create a truly healthy Ann Arbor. NHCAA has grown by more than 10 times and now has helped thousands upon thousands to become free of pain, hormone problems, digestive issues and many other chronic health conditions. All without drugs or surgery. Healthcare as Mother Nature Intended.
With the addition of Kerry Cradit, B.Scn in Nutrition and Dr. Amanda Childress, PharmD in 2011 the Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor has truly started achieving its purpose of creating a healthy community made up of healthy people achieving their full potentials in life.
