Practitioner Background



      Cheryl Spitzer is the owner of Cheryl's Therapeutic Nutrition, LLC. She learned a lot about fitness when she was in the Army Reserves for 22 years.  Her passion for health through nutrition led her to get certified as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner.  In her teens and early twenties, she struggled with an eating disorder that made her very ill.  So she understands the emotional connection to food and how hard it is to change your eating habits! In 2005, after seeing her young Aunt pass away from breast cancer and her father go through a risky heart surgery, she wanted to find a more natural and safer way to overcome health problems.  She developed an even stronger passion for natural health when she had a severe reaction from a vaccination in 1995. She suffered with chronic hives and   edema all over her body until she found help in 2007 with training through the Nutritional Therapy Association and in 2009 when she received training in the Nutrition Response Testing technique. 

These natural health approaches also helped her with allergies, Lyme Disease, joint pain, irritable bowel syndrome, and the fibrocystic breast condition she had developed due to the toxins in her body and the deficiencies of poor nutrition.  Cheryl says "I believe there was a reason I had my health problems for so long because I tried everything medically and naturally.  But it wasn't until I found Nutritional Therapy and Nutrition Response Testing​ that I finally got the help and hope I needed to turn my life around.  I learned that our body is wise and knows what it needs to heal.  As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a NRT (Nutrition Response Testing)  Practitioner,  we are trained to give the body the right thing at the right  time."

Why Supplements?


Our digestive system and entire body becomes depleted from processed food, sugar and even medications.  This starts the spiral of declining health.  We use whole food supplements from the companies Energetix, Physica Energetics, Standard Process, Nutri Dyn, and Biotics to restore the nutritional deficiencies of your body.  Think of it as your replacement parts.  You don't expect a car to run on the same oil year after year, do you?  The same is true with your body.  As we age or come in contact with illness, our body systems become stressed and don't work like they used to. 

In addition, we can't get enough nutrients from our food because our food is grown in soil that is often deficient in nutrients because of chemicals used and over farming.  When there is a lack of nutrients in the soil, then our food will also lack the vitamins and minerals we need to thrive.  Eating foods with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, white flour, hydrogenated fats, and chemical additives creates even more problems. 

The supplements used at Cheryl's Therapeutic Nutrition are not synthetic because those are toxic.  Whereas whole food supplements help restore function to the body.  Cheryl also teaches you that eating a variety of foods from nature restores your health and getting chemical free food from local farms, stores, or your own garden has environmental benefits too!

Client Testimonies

"For more than 20 years I suffered with stomach problems: burping, belching, bloating, vomiting, pain, no appetite.  And then when I reached middle age I started to feel other symptoms: memory problems, mood swings, sleep disorder, allergies.  I thought I had no hope at all.  But there is,  when  I  tried Nutrition Response Testing with Cheryl I began to feel much better.  This is the first time in my life that I can enjoy food without having to feel pain again.  Allergies and sleep, memory and mood are all improved and better. I love the results.  Thank you Cheryl for taking care of me." L.C.

"I had fallen and I had neck and arm problems.  I was in a lot of pain.  My daughter had been going to Cheryl and suggested I see her.  Not only did she help me with pain, I also don't have edema and high blood pressure anymore."  S.P.

 "Before doing Nutrition Response Testing, I suffered from migraines and sinus pressure almost every day for 9 years.  I tried various medications, but  nothing worked.  Usually it was just severe head pounding, but once in a while they would lead me to the point of nausea.  I had no idea that diet could be the cause of my migraines.  Four weeks following Cheryl's advice, I have been migraine free! I have changed my diet to exclude milk and sugar and include more veggies.  That in combination with the whole food supplements has helped greatly.  I am so grateful for this program."  T.D.

    "Before I came in to see Cheryl, my digestion was totally messed up.  I had psoriasis, was always hungry, and I was on anxiety medication.  Now, through the nutrition program, my psoriasis has greatly improved, I am full longer, my digestion is much better and I am not on medication.  I feel much more in control of my emotions and somewhat less anxious.  I have even lost a few pounds. I feel much healthier."  B.R.

   "I have been losing my hair for years.  And I had brown spots and patches all over my face.  After coming to Cheryl for the last six months, I was surprised  to notice tiny hairs coming back and the spots on my face are fading."  A.E.

    "I was sick most of the winter with colds and sinus infections.  I had a couple allergic reactions out of the blue.  I had chronic constipation and a dry  itchy  scalp.  I also suffered from PMS symptoms, and back pain between my should blades.  After starting Nutrition Response Testing, I haven't had a sinus infection, my constipation is gone, as is my itchy scalp.  My PMS symptoms have disappeared and my back pain is less."  J.S.

    "My fibromyalgia made getting out of the car very difficult.  I had dry, peeling patches on the soles of my feet.  After I started a nutrition program I do  not get stiff and sore and the dry patches on my feet have disappeared."  J.R.

    "I had headaches and migraines all the time.  Eating almost anything made me feel bloated and gave me heartburn.  Monthly periods and the days before were a nightmare.  I had low energy and poor sleep.  Now I feel much better! I feel rested in the morning and ready to go!  This is exciting!    I love natural healing!"  E.H.

    "I had bad allergies and hurt all over.  I had bad headaches and my hair and nails were in bad shape.  My feet were cracked and smelly. I now only lose  a few hairs when I wash my hair.  My nails are no longer split and chipped.  The scars on my body are improving.  I was able to cut my allergy meds in  half.   I feel more energetic.  My feet have also healed!" R.B.

    "I had bladder cancer, fatigue, constipation, and pain in my back and hands.  Now I am cancer free,  have more energy and regular bowel movements!  Cheryl is very kind to take care of me.  Changing my diet and the right supplments were the best approach to improve my health."  L.D.

    "I was on 4 different steroid escriptions for asthma and allergies and a continuous cough with little positive results.  These caused many side effects.  I had the shakes and trouble breathing and trouble sleeping all the time!  Now with nutritional therapy, my body is responding much better to this natural approach.  What has contributed to the success of my healing has been consistent visits and following Cheryl's plan."  T.D.

     "I was run down, had memory problems, joint pain - especially in my knees, and stomach problems.  I had to take medications for some of my symptoms.  Now I don't have any joint pain, I don't take medication any more and I have a lot more energy!"  G.S.

"I am now a year and a half free of a rare infection and cancer.  I was to the point where experimental medicines were the only hope and because of taking those, my kidneys took a major hit.  I didn't want dialysis.  I had a baby at home.  I was frustrated and tired.  My friend, Diane recommended that I see Cheryl.  At the time I had no idea how nutrition and whole food supplements would help me.  I still remember how I felt after my first appointment with Cheryl.  For the first time in two years, I felt encouraged to gain my health and life back.  My shirt was soaked from the tears of hope running down my face. Cheryl was able to tell me what my body was extremely sensitive to at the time, what foods to stay away from, what to eat/drink, how to detox, and how to get my kidneys functioning better.  Most importantly, I felt I could do it -  not a drug, but me!  Since then I am not only healthier but have learned how our bodies can heal themselves if we give them what they need.
     I have learned that there definitely is a need for both western medicine and holistic.  I continue to feel better after each time I visit her." A.M.

    "Last year, I had abdominal pain and was making frequent trips to the bathroom, had blood in my urine.  I was concerned about bladder and prostate problems.  This went away with the whole food supplements Cheryl put me on.  Just recently, I visited Cheryl because I had difficulty breathing and was being treated for asthma.  I was able to discontinue all medications and with the help of Cheryl's therapeutic intervention, I used supplements to help my body's immune system heal itself.  I suggest you get tested by Cheryl!  Keep an open mind.  Let your body do what it was designed to do as God intended." G.S.
    "I had severe chronic candida with huge welts.  I was miserable.  I would use extremely hot water to burn my skin so the itching stopped.  This had been going on for several years.  I had tried over-the-counter applications.  I used essential oils to calm the itching for a few hours, I tried to figure out what food would make it worse, but it always came back.  Cheryl started me on a few supplements.  We also found out I was very sensitive to sugar, dairy and gluten.  She suggested foods I could eat so my body could function better.  I lost 10 pounds right away.  But the biggest benefit was I felt more energy and vitality!  I now listen to the symptoms my body gives me as a     message.  Some foods make me feel bad, so with Cheryl's help, I learned the foods that make me feel good!  I trust in Cheryl's expertise.  Sincere thanks!"  J.S.

    "For three years prior to finding Cheryl I had several medically diagnosed conditions which adversely impacted my quality of life.  They included an allergy to nickel, psoriasis of the scalp,  pressure urticaria and seborrheic dermatitis.  Symptoms consisted of an itchy rash and open sores that were irritated by wearing clothing, dry patches, swelling and redness of skin, hives, joint aches, chills, and fatigue.  After following recommended diet changes and taking whole food supplements, these issues subsided.  My comfort level improved within a 2 to 4 week period!  I credit my remarkable recovery to Cheryl's natural, individualized approach and to her coaching abilities toward healthy lifestyle changes.  She  effectively creates a PARTNERSHIP OF HEALING by encouraging the client to listen, learn and follow-through while using her expertise in Nutrition Response Testing and customizing nutritional plans.  THANK YOU CHERYL!"  J.S.

    “I used to have acid reflux, I hurt all over and had back pain and headaches.  With Cheryl’s help I gave up the Mountain Dew and sugar that was causing the acid reflux.  I am in better spirits and I don’t have to take pain pills anymore even with increased activity.  I even started craving more vegetables!  If you keep an open mind, give it 100% effort and be willing to change your habits, you will see positive changes.”  

"My life was pretty sad.  I was nauseated all day, every day - sick enough to be in bed by early evening.  Food made it worse.  I followed Cheryl's recommendations and now can't believe how good I feel! Following her advise and taking the supplements helped.  Be patient - it's an answer to prayers!! S.B.

 "I had very frequent headaches/migraines since childhood, digestive issues, acne and skin issues.  Now I have no migraines, digestion is much better and skin has cleared up.  Listen to the process and stay strong, You will feel so much better if you remove the foods that are irritating you!"  K.C.

"I was shaky and weak.  It was hard to walk, I had a metal taste in my mouth and trouble eating food because it tasted bad.  I had nose bleeds every morning.  A lot of medicals tests couldn't find what was wrong.  Now I am walking on my own, eating again, no nose bleeds, better energy and no metal taste in my mouth."  S.E.
