Dr. Amanda R. Childress is a licensed Pharmacist, who now uses Nutrition Response Testing℠ in her new profession of Wholistic Pharmacist.
She attended Pre-Pharmacy Studies at James Madison University in Virginia and graduated with her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Shenandoah University in 2007.
Dr. Amanda practiced traditional drug-centered retail pharmacy for three years before changing her focus to a holistic, non-drug approach. Her firsthand knowledge of the damage done by our modern drug-focused healthcare system led her to nutrition and the solutions provided by Mother Nature.
Unable to continue watching patients of all ages get worse the longer they took prescriptions she walked away from a successful career as a retail pharmacist. Knowing there was a better road to health Dr. Amanda joined the Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor in 2010 as a Patient Advocate and Doctor’s Assistant. She is now fully certified in Nutrition Response Testing℠ and has completed her Advanced Clinical Training.
With her unique knowledge and perspective as a Doctor of Pharmacy, she has integrated both fields to practice Wholistic Pharmacy in which Mother Nature replaces the drug store and real food along with whole-food nutritional supplements are the medicine. Her focus now is to help people fix their health challenges without drugs and by restoring their health end their need for any prescriptions. She is currently seeing patients on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
Dr. Amanda’s Health Story
Since becoming a Nutritional Healing Center patient, her health has improved tremendously. She was not sleeping well and would be up two to five times a night to go to the bathroom. She had puffy ankles and back pain and was stuck on her quest to lose weight having struggled with it her whole life.
Within two weeks on the program, her back pain improved, and she was resting better. Now, the back pain is gone. No more night time issues and she sleeps eight hours straight. She has also lost over 35 pounds and has more energy than ever before in her life!
