Betsy Bartlett, DC

I always wanted to be a Chiropractor. My Father was one, so I grew up under Chiropractic care all my life. I pursued that dream to Quinnipiac University in Hamden Connecticut for my undergraduate classes then I went to Palmer College Of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. When I graduated in 1980, I took my licensing exam to practice in Washington, D.C. I started in my father’s office and then opened my own practice. I was in Washington D.C. for 12 years then I moved to Romney West Virginia and opened a practice there along with a Health food Store.

Over the years of practicing, I found that peoples’ health was deteriorating and Chiropractic Care was not as quick and effective as it was when I started in 1980. So I started looking for a way that I could help my patients more. That’s when I discovered Nutrition Response Testing and decided to take the training to become Certified. After a year of training, I started helping patients with Nutrition Response Testing. I have been practicing this for about 13 years with amazing results helping people to correct their Nutritional deficiencies and detoxify and eat right so they can return to vibrant health and learn how to take care of their body.

Stuart White, DC, DACBN

He is a Diplomat of the American Clinical Board of Nutrition and a Certified Clinical Nutritionist. He has thirty six years’ experience treating in excess of 39,000 patients. Upon graduating chiropractic school he opened Whole Health Associates, which eventually became one of the largest nutrition practices in the country.  In 1990 he began lecturing and teaching CRA in the US, Canada, and Great Britain. This was the beginning of his teaching career, which today has spanned to leading over 300 seminars to over 18,000 practitioners. He also conducts a webinar series Mentoring the Mentors which serves as a forum of discussion for practitioners to listen to lectures and have their questions answered.  In 1995 he joined the Complimentary and Traditional Medicine Mission to Romania to assist and generate solutions for the significant number of children with AIDS. His philosophy is that by simply strengthening weakened systems, glands and organs it is possible to increase the life expression of a person. This results in more personal power, greater clarity of purpose, more facilitated transformation, and more capability to join in creativity with others. No matter what challenge is facing an individual (grief, disease, stress, etc.), being potent to meet the challenge is where all sense of fulfillment lives. “My philosophy is that strong people live well, and demonstrate human greatness!”
