This allows medical professionals to interpret the responses and determine each individual body’s preference for things such as nutrition, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

They can also take advantage of the center's chiropractic treatments, medical and cosmetic acupuncture, monthly memberships, and nutrition services.
