Dr. Shawn Jones and his wife Gina are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of Chattanooga's only Clinical Nutrition Center!

Why would I open a nutrition center when I am already a great Chiropractor delivering an excellent adjustment?

As many of you know, in January, 2006 I was laying in Memorial Hospital dying from anemia. I was terrified, frustrated and confused. How could this be happening to me? After all, I"m a doctor who doesn't smoke, rarely drinks and was taking handfuls of "nutriceutical supplements" as part of my wellness care program. But my body crashed in spite of all this and what I thought was a decent diet. Thus, I had to leave practice for several weeks, sold my main office to my partner Dr. Dobson and went down to practicing just 4 hours a week! Prestigious Vanderbilt University Hospital couldn't even figure out what happened and admitted that they never would. They all told me my heavy metal blood profile was negative. I was despondent and about to retire from Chiropractic practice completely.

Then I happened to meet Dr. Freddie Ulan and his doctors teaching Nutrition Response Testing™ in April 2006. Through their technology, the HRV computerized assessment and exact evaluation procedures, they were able to show me that I did have heavy metal, mercury, in my kidneys blocking my autonomic nervous system from properly regulating and causing neurologic switching (neurologic confusion where the body responds opposite from intended function - reversed results). In other words, my body was not "open to healing" and would have crashed again had I not fixed the cause. I am still improving as I clear deeper levels of nutritional problems and continue to improve my diet which is the long term goal for all of us. Gina & I invite all of you to come in and see if you are a nutritional case. We hope to see you there!


First of all, Designed Clinical Nutrition is not 'over-the-counter' vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not "whole food," and the body does not actually recognize these as anything even vaguely beneficial (to put it mildly). Because they are not made from whole foods, "over-the-counter" vitamins lack the essential synergistic elements normally present in WHOLE foods.

An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex. A "complex" is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic vitamin A does not contain the whole "Vitamin A Complex" found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices

If one actually were deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, one would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex - not from chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the Vitamin A Complex that has erroneously been labeled as "Vitamin A." Vitamins that are being used all over today generally only need to have a small percentage of their actual content derived from natural sources to be labeled "natural". If they are not derived from whole foods, they often make you even more deficient and nutritionally out-of-balance. They can create other health problems because they do not contain all of the co-factors found in nature that make the vitamins work. So-called "scientific research," done with these shoddy substitutes, repeatedly "proves" that vitamins don't do much good for anyone! Can you imagine who pays for these "researches"?

"Designed Clinical Nutrition"

Is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully). It is whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as the Creator intended. These real food supplements have beendesigned to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing reflexes that were found on your individual Nutrition Response Testing analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet. These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, but it is for sure due, in some large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today.

There is a great deal of technology and know-how behind what we do!

Having been designed through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of patients, and on patients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Response Testing is capable of evaluating and solving your health concerns. A complete Nutrition Response Testing™ analysis can be done on each patient on each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layers of dysfunction so these can also be addressed and corrected. In this way, each patient gets a completely individualized handling, in the correct sequence for his or her body. Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time - then the lock falls open. By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, you don't "shot-gun" your diet or supplements. With a correctly done Nutrition Response Testing analysis, we can determine the correct food supplements for you – designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying that way. Many people we see in our practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another. The deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (chemical, microscopic, or otherwise).

The good news is that it is possible to reverse the process!

It is possible to restore your health?

What could be more natural? What could be more correct? Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. The health of each organ is dependent on making the correct nutrients available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at a cellular level. Designed Clinical Nutrition provides the right basic materials. Nutrition Response Testing™ tells you when and what to use to bring about the desired result. With this understanding of what we do, can you see how we might be able to help you do something effective to get yourself well? And once that is achieved, do you see how you might be able to use this approach to stay well?

Now you have the complete 1-2-3 package. You now know:

· What we do

· How and why we do it

· What you need to do now to have the potential of restoring your health and staying healthy.

But in the end you are the one responsible for your own condition. And with our guidance, we feel that – if you are a Nutrition Response Testing case – your chances of greatly improving your health can be as high as 90% or better. In our experience, if our analysis indicates that you are not a Nutrition Response Testing / nutritional case, then in all probability, while a nutritional program may give you some benefit, it may not give you the maximum results you desire. But if our analysis confirms that you are a Nutrition Response Testing / clinical nutrition case, then, in our experience, nothing else will ever come close to what you can possibly achieve using Nutrition Response Testing and Designed Clinical Nutrition!

We wish you and your family the best in making your health decisions! We are here to help you in your quest to take back full responsibility for your health just as Dr. Jones began almost a year ago. We never take you off a medication, but we want to help you avoid them and all the terrible side effects whenever possible!

We urge you to take full advantage of our referral cards for you, your family and friends. If we accept your nutritional case, you can count on us to do everything in our power to help you achieve your health objectives, and to help you achieve a healthier, happier life. May you never be the same!!!
