If you follow me on Instagram you have for sure seen my stories about Vanessa Fitzgerald, a.k.a @VeesHoney. I mean, I have a whole Highlight about her and our sessions on my feed! I go to Vanessa for Nutrition Response Testing ®! Nutrition Response Testing has been absolutely life-changing for me and before I get into the why, what, and how, I’m going to be very real. It’s a very unique approach to health and wellness, but if you do the research and trust the process like I encourage you to, you’ll be so unbelievably impressed and grateful to have found the answers to your health issues and problems.
What is Nutrition Response Testing?
According to Advanced Chiro Health, “Nutrition Response Testing is a study done on a person, using different reflexes on the surface of the body, that relate to the individuals state of health and the function of all the organs in the body.” You can check out the youtube video I did with Vanessa, here. It shows the practice in action!
Vanessa first sought Nutrition Response Testing as a means of coping with her Hashimoto’s, PCOS, and Celiac Diagnoses. Since beginning her practice, has reversed her own Hashimoto’s, lives life with PCOS with no issues, and is unphased by gluten-free living. Most importantly, she has been able to end her 13 year affair with adderol, and detox from it with the help of natural supplements and whole and healthy foods.
I met Vanessa in the most millennial way possible… I found her on Instagram. Everything she said on her stories and in her posts resonated with me, so I started following her. I had done Nutrition Response Testing/kinesiology in the past, so the concept wasn’t foreign, and after our first session I was hooked. Vanessa was the first person to confidently address and help my situation, and resolve it within weeks.
Why did I join the program?
Starting in the Summer of 2019, my health was awful. I had raging leaky gut, I was either incredibly constipated or QUITE the opposite, I had terrible brain fog and anxiety; basically you name it, I was dealing with it. So began months of blood work and medical tests, all that concluded absolutely nothing. I knew there was more to my story, and I knew both traditional and integrative medicine and theories weren’t going to find it. Vanessa and I had been friends for a bit at this point, so it was only natural that I seek her advice.
As part of Vanessa’s program she asks you to commit to 12 weeks of sessions with her. Twelve weeks may sound like a long time, but given the months of hell I was living through and years of chronic illness, twelve weeks actually sounded kinda nice.
At our first session, Vanessa was able to pinpoint several issues and acknowledge which was the priority. The priority was my parasite, so the first part of our program was going to work on killing the parasite. After that was gone, we would be able to address all other underlying issues, again in order of priority.
After the first session, my constipation/diarrhea stopped.
After four weeks, my parasite was gone.
By week 8, we were past addressing my original issues, and working on other layers of my body that also needed support, so my body as a whole could function properly.
And at week 12, when I was “done,” we had made so much progress with my health and overall wellness that I didn’t want to be done. So here we are a year and a half later, still working together and still building up my immune system. If you think about it, for twenty years I was completely destroying my immune system with my diet, and although my surface problems were doing well after 12 weeks, there were years of damage I still needed to correct.
Like any program. progression is an up and down journey, but any down I experienced was still so much better than the downs I had at the start of journey (every day was a down back then). In those moments of frustration I would call Vanessa and she would tell me to “trust the process.” I repeated this mantra daily, on both up days and down (which were becoming largely infrequent) and any frustrations quickly went away.
Vanessa uses Nutrition Response Testing and ‘muscle testing’ to find which organs are weak, problematic, or ‘switched.’ She then tests several supplements on your body to see which one resonates with you and corrects the issue. Whenever I post my sessions with Vanessa, I am inundated with questions about what supplement V gave me that day. To that, I’m happy to tell you all, but sessions with Vanessa are personal and tailored to your body.That is a huge part of Nutrition Response Testing- what works for me and my body may not work for you and yours! At my first session with Vanessa she had me bring in all of the supplements and vitamins I was currently taking, and she found that about 75% of them were non-effective or harmful to my body! It’s important to be on supplements that work for you!
Didn’t like taking vitamins growing up? Or currently? Well be prepared to make them your new best friend. Vanessa addresses issues through supplementation, drops, and removing harmful foods from your diet. Because I’ve been a client of Vanessa’s for so long, it looks like I have a mini supplement-store from the different supplements I’ve been on over the course of our journey! What’s great about the supplements is that they are all natural, and meant to support. I’ve never had an adverse reaction to any of them!
How do you know if you should see Vanessa?
Do you have an unexplained illness or predicament, that you know can be explained? Are you tired of just not feeling well? That’s your cue!
Common complaints I receive from my community:
“I haven’t had my period in X years/months”
“I have X autoimmune disorder and just don’t feel well.”
“I have hormonal acne/bad skin.”
“Something is bothering me all the time. And I don’t know what it is or really how to explain it.”
“I have X, Y, and Z issues… but it’s fine. I guess that’s just me.”
“I can’t figure out my leaky gut! And I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do to make its better!”
The common response? Go see Vanessa. As much as I would LOVEE to dish out advice , I am not trained to do so. She is!
Vanessa is also an amazing nutrition expert, and has a division of her practice to deal with food intolerances and creating your personal proper diet.
To the skeptics:
I know. This is a lot to take in! And seems a bit strange. To that I quote Vanessa and say, “trust the process.” You have likely turned to Vanessa and Nutrition Response Testing because whatever medical system and practice you are currently enrolled in has failed you or isn’t giving you the best results. So why not try something new? New and DIFFERENT! Like anything else in life, you only see results when you change. Not only have I had dozens and dozens of NOBREAD followers turn to Vanessa and see amazing results, but I’ve put several of my best friends onto the VeesHoney Nutrition Response Testing program, and all of them are still clients to this day.
To make your first appointment with Vanessa, email firstname.lastname@example.org! If you don’t live local to LA, that’s no problem! I’ve been on the East Coast for the last 5 months and have been doing my Nutrition Response Testing sessions via FaceTime with Vanessa!
