Dr. Joel Vickers
Dr. Joel Vickers earned his Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology and graduated from National College of Chiropractic in 1991. He practiced in Holland, Michigan for twenty-one years. Over time he observed strengths and weaknesses in various techniques and found Nutrition Response Testing. While attending his first Nutrition Response Testing seminar in 2009, which was taught by Dr. Darren Schmidt, Dr. Vickers told Dr. Schmidt about the lack of energy he suffered for a year due to total shoulder replacement surgery. Within three weeks after following Dr. Schmidt’s recommendations, Dr. Vickers had all his energy back. Because of that experience, he knew he had found a total system for nutrition testing. He is excited to be working alongside such talented practitioners and is looking forward to helping others regain control of their health. Dr. Vickers is married to the beautiful and talented Donna Vickers and has two daughters and three granddaughters.
