Be part of our 2 day lecture presented by Dr. Van Merkle DC, DABCI, DCBCN, CCN.

Setting the standard of objectivity in Nutritional Healthcare.

No general screening test is more efficient, effective and affordable than a comprehensive blood chemistry panel. It allows the healthcare provider to establish a baseline of biomarkers to track the health and nutritional needs of their patients. Getting a comprehensive blood test is essential to understanding a patient’s current health.

Science Based Nutrition™ is an innovative, science-based look at nutritional strengths and weaknesses through an individual’s blood test as well as other objective diagnostic tools. This objective approach can offer a clear plan for determining and monitoring nutritional recommendations.

Sometimes even serious problems have simple, safe, natural solutions.


Join doctors from around the region for a Science Based Nutrition seminar!
