About Meri Jo

My health journey began at twelve when I developed cystic acne. At that time, the standard acne treatment was antibiotic therapy. Unfortunately, this condition followed me into adulthood, keeping me on and off antibiotics for twenty-three years.


In 1994 I experienced a significant health crisis. Due to a systemic fungal infection, I suffered from food and environmental allergies and chemical sensitivities. Inflammation at times caused my extremities to turn purple, and I was always cold. Seeking direction and help from the medical profession, I was shocked when my doctor told me I had an auto-immune disease and might never regain my health. I felt hopeless.

My intuition told me not to give up, and I sought holistic modalities. My health significantly improved
over the next ten years after including these therapies as needed: acupuncture, yoga, craniosacral,
massage, meditation, and energy healing.

By 2006 I had completed a certification as a Whole Health Educator ™ and an herbal apprenticeship. I
continued health counseling in various settings for the next eleven years. Despite my education and effort, I was still experiencing many food intolerances, seasonal allergies, tinnitus, stress incontinence, and energy level fluctuations. These issues interfered with my ability to enjoy life fully.


In November 2017, my good fortune led me to experience Nutrition Response Testing. Improvements in
my health were slow at first. Then after about six weeks, I began to see noticeable differences. I realized
I had finally found something that worked!

Through Nutrition Response Testing, I learned that hidden stressors like chemicals and heavy metals
negatively affected my immune system. These were the underlying causes of my numerous health
issues. Identifying these stressors makes Nutrition Response Testing a unique body technology and
enabled me to improve my health significantly.

Two years as a Nutrition Response Testing client have brought many remarkable changes. Foods are
easier to tolerate, and my energy levels have increased due to improved digestion and better sleep.
Spring is enjoyable now in the absence of allergies. My tinnitus has lessened considerably.

Because this technology significantly improved my quality of life, I became a trained Nutrition Response
Testing Practitioner to help those suffering from similar unresolved health issues.

Wishing you vibrant health,
