Our Practitioners

Dr. Darren Schmidt

Founder of The Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor. Dr. Schmidt’s purpose is to bankrupt pharmaceutical companies by getting many people well. He has learned the mechanism of chronic disease, well known prior to 1960 but forgotten in modern times, due to his own health crisis from black mold exposure in 2016. He reads old medical and nutrition textbooks from 1910 to 1960, when almost all research was Feeding Studies. Combined with new nutrition information, the old textbooks hold the secrets to preventing and reversing the major chronic health problems of today.

Kerry Cradit

Kerry is our nutritionist. She has her B.S. in Nutrition and Food Science. Kerry worked at The University of Michigan Health System and saw that by the time most people were hospitalized with chronic problems it was too late for nutrition to help. She came to the office in 2006 as a patient with her own health concerns. Her experience as a patient showed her there are nutritional alternatives to medications. It is her desire to help people with health problems find solutions. Kerry completed Ulan Nutritional Systems Advanced Clinical Training in Nutrition Response Testing℠ and she is a Certified Stott Pilates Instructor. She has helped hundreds of patients over the years to improve their health.

Dr. Amanda Childress

She has helped many individuals safely wean off prescription medications.
