Alex Hartinger brings Modern Nutrition to Merrill
Alex Hartinger is looking to bring better health to Merrill through better nutrition. She recently opened Modern Nutrition, a holistic health and wellness clinic, inside the Apprill Family Chiropractic building at 3207 E. Main St.
Hartinger offers nutrition response testing and designed clinical nutrition.
“Nutrition Response Testing uses muscle testing and the innate intelligence of the body to determine barriers to healing such as heavy metals, chemicals, food sensitivities, immune challenges or troublesome scars,” she explained. “With this information we create a designed clinical nutrition program using whole food supplements and dietary and lifestyle recommendations that is entirely individualized to promote optimum healing and wellness.”
“This is more natural health,” she added. “I’m hoping to fill that gap for people.”
Nutrition response testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of health issues. Hartinger said it can be used to treat everything from depression to long-term health problem, or as a means to get into better physical condition. Through reflex testing, she can determine where energy flows are being disrupted in the body. A specific nutrition program is recommended to help correct deficiencies.
The designed clinical nutrition uses concentrated whole food supplements to aid the body in healing itself. Whole foods are produced without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers and undergo very little processing.
Hartinger is one of only a few hundred practitioners in the country trained in the use of nutrition response testing and designed clinical nutrition. She also has a health coaching certificate, which complements the clinical nutrition.
