Thank you so much for all your help and for giving me my life back! I truly believe with all my heart that had I not met you last July, I would not be alive today. Before seeing you, my liver was in complete failure and many other organs were shutting down. I couldn't walk or even stand up on my own. And to make matters worse, I had just found out that I was pregnant. Doctors had told me that I would never be able to get pregnant, and that if I did, my body wouldn't be able to sustain us both and we'd die before my fourth month of pregnancy.
This all began when I was 12 years old. I would get pain in my legs so severe that I couldn't walk or even be touched. They would swell 2-3 times in size and turn black. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong so they said it was growing pains. I became allergic to the sun and they said it was unrelated. Then, once I passed the age of growing pains, they decided I was depressed and needed friends and exercise. But I had many dear friends and was a very active person when I wasn't in pain.
Finally, on one of many trips to the ER, a doctor ran some tests and found I had Lupus. I was put on steroids and many other drugs to mask the pain. I was unable to walk and had spent the last month or so in a wheel chair, even to go to the restroom in my own home. My doctor said there was nothing they could do.
Two days before I met you, I found out that I was pregnant. I was told that due to the damage of my liver and other organs, my body would not carry the baby to term. They said by the time I was 4 months along, the stress of the pregnancy on my body would kill us both. I was devastated. Not only would I not make it to my 22nd birthday, but my body would take another life as well.
But thanks to you, I am in my third trimester and am expected to have a healthy baby boy. Thanks to your whole foods diet I have not needed my wheelchair for 2 months—I can walk on my own! I have energy, walk every day, and exercise again. My liver is almost completely healed and my other organs are functioning normally. I am no longer on any pain medication and feel good most of the time. My baby is healthy and even big and active for his stage of development. Thanks to you, I will not only get to see my baby boy be born, but I will get to be a mother to him.
I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be alive today, let alone be getting ready for a new little life. I can't wait to be able to play with my son and watch him grow. I owe this to you, Dr. Peart, and your effort to heal me through a whole foods diet. Thank you.

In July, I started getting lower abdominal pains and migraine headaches every week. I took over-the-counter medications to stay functional and keep working, but often had to call in sick because of the pain. In August, I collapsed at home due to the abdominal pain. I was rushed to the ER in an ambulance, and, after 12 hours and many tests, I was sent home on narcotics for an ovarian cyst rupture. The pain and migraines continued. In December, I was referred to Dr. Peart for Nutrition Response Testing. He performed an examination and within an hour had the answers to my problems. I began treatment with him and within 6 weeks was feeling much better. My migraines were gone and my abdominal pain was 80% better. I now feel better than I have in years and have so much energy! Thank you, Dr. Peart.
I am a 70-year-old businessman who is continuing to take care of my business responsibilities. Because of this, I consider anything that will help me "stay in the game" to be a good investment. Even though I was already taking several vitamin and mineral supplements, the Nutrition Response Testing showed that I had several areas in my body that had nutritional deficiencies. You provided me the proper supplements to help correct these deficiencies.
The most notable problem was my heart. I thought I was in good health and never had any heart problems. I was, however, always fighting marginal high blood pressure. When I started taking the supplements that you suggested for my heart, not only did my energy improve, but my blood pressure dropped considerably into the safe zone.
Also, as you know, I have had problems with my knees for several years. My right knee has been operated on twice, and I was still having pain and stiffness in it. After I started taking the supplements you suggested, I found that my knees were not bothering as much anymore!
I have to admit that I don't understand how this testing works, but I know that it has already made an improvement in my health, and I thank you for that. Than you for introducing me to NRT; I appreciate your interest in helping me to maintain my excellent health.
I'm a 64-year-old female feeling 40 again thanks to the professional care of Dr. Peart and Nutrition Response Testing. I have always been in excellent health and maintained an active lifestyle, and even had an easy transition into menopause.
I dealt with acid reflux for 13 years, then, at age 62, I was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous uterus and underwent a complete hysterectomy. A bone-density test showed early signs of osteopenia, so I increased my calcium and followed by doctor's advice to walk, dance, or climb stairs to help strengthen my skeleton. Within a year of my hysterectomy, however, I was feeling very tired. I literally felt like my energy was seeping out of my body. I could be a couch potato the whole day—this wasn't the real me!
In October I began seeing Dr. Peart for NRT to assess my condition. He found that my pituitary, hypothalamus, and thyroid were all performing at minimum level, and my adrenal glands were exhausted—my body was stressed! Apparently, taking out all of my plumbing led my body to keep screaming for hormones that could no longer be manufactured. I was on the brink of Acute Chronic Fatigue. I was also deficient in vitamin D and iodine, and he found that I had developed a sensitivity to soy, oatmeal, eggs, and cheese. He carefully explained the protocol of taking food supplements to get my body back to normal.
Within three weeks of taking the supplements and eliminated those four foods, I was a new woman! Because I felt so much better, it was easy to remain faithful to the program prescribed by Dr. Peart. By March, all my organs and glands showed optimum performance. I could once again eat the foods I was previously sensitive to (although I have limited soy intake since it contains hormones and I tend to be estrogen dominant).
Even though my stressors are gone, I have continued to take supplements and am maintaining a high energy level. My metabolism has increased, I no longer have cravings for sweets or salty foods, and am experiencing gradual weight loss.
As of this writing, I am active once again. I walk an average of 15 miles per week, am playing golf, doing yoga, and have started circuit weight training. In addition, I have no more trouble with acid reflux and am happily enjoying playtime with my grandchildren!
I am so thankful for Dr. Peart's knowledge and ability. He is so very thorough in explaining every step of NRT and how it works. My wish is for others who feel like they're getting old before their time to get tested and experience a renewed energy. Thank you so much.
For over a year, I'd been having severe pains in all of my joints—ankles, knees, shoulders, and even my jaw. I also had swelling on the left side of my body. My energy level was very low, and I was getting colds all the time. My MD did an ultrasound over the swelling but was unable to tell me what was causing it.
I was referred to Dr. Peart at the Natural Health Renewal Center in Fresno. After just one consultation and analysis, he was able to find areas in my body that were weak and needed nutritional support.
I began treatment and within 3-4 weeks, I noticed a significant difference in my health. All of my joints were already about 80% better and the swelling was almost gone! I have more energy now and just feel better overall. I almost forgot what it felt like to feel GOOD again! Thank you.
