"I am 53 years old and have had digestion issues all my life. I have also suffered from reoccurring low back and neck pain for several years.

I attended a seminar on digestive health and Nutritional Response Testing that Dr. Carter hosted back in February, this year. I wasn’t sure that I was going to learn anything from it but I was searching for answers on why I was feeling so fatigued and Dr. Carter was already helping me with my low back and neck pain. So, reluctantly, I went.

At that time I was in a bad mood ALL the time. My brain was in a fog and I couldn’t think. I was aggravated in general and I could not figure out why. And I was at my heaviest weight; ever.

I had already had a physical and everything medically came back with great reports. There was nothing medically wrong with me! So I thought, then, Why did I feel soooo bad?  “Oh”, my friends said, “it’s just your hormones. You will get past it. Go home and have some wine and relax”, they said. “You just need a good night’s sleep.”  Well, I tried all that; many, many times. Needless to say, it did not help me at all. As a matter of fact, after having enough wine to relax and fall to sleep, I awoke at 2:00 in the morning and could not fall back to sleep! Thus becoming even more tired than I already was before and feeling more frustrated than ever and running on about 4 hours sleep per night. I also had some hormonal imbalance symptoms and dealt with periodic night sweats.

I am so glad I went to the seminar!  

Dr. Carter tested me using Nutritional Response Testing and found that I needed some supplements. After taking the nutritional supplements for ONLY 2 DAYS and following Dr. Carter’s recommendations about healthy eating. I felt like my old self again! I threw out the wine! And I repeat, I felt like my old self again in ONLY 2 DAYS! 

I followed Dr. Carter’s plan and lost 22 lbs. in 4 months, and am back to my healthy weight. I have a healthy attitude again and feel better than I have in years. My sleep pattern is back on track and I actually rest when I sleep. No more night sweats! And my low back and neck pain have been reduced significantly.

I am a firm believer that food is medicine. The supplements have given me the nourishment that my body was starving for and thanks to Nutritional Response Testing, I do not even crave snacks anymore.  And my digestive system is working properly!

Thank you, Dr. Carter, for helping me get my balanced life back!" 

"I had my first Nutritional assessment a little over 4 months ago. The journey to full healing isn’t over, but the transformation thus far has been amazing.

Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been a conscientious eater and took vitamins. I’ve worked to be healthy. I’ve learned that certain foods don’t agree with me and I’d stay away. Though I’ve learned over the last few months that foods I thought were friendly just took longer to strike back.

Over the last couple of years, I guess due to hard work and stress (not that reaching my mid-forties has anything to do with it) my body was getting tired and I started feeling awful. I’ve always loved working out and running, and slowly over the last year and a half I could barely do much light exercise without feeling tight and terrible. I didn’t drink cow’s milk and I began to eat gluten free a while ago. It helped a bit, but I still didn’t feel like I was getting better. It just slowed down the “getting worse” process. Since Dr. Carter has had me on this plan, I’ve learned that when it says gluten-free, it doesn’t mean its grain free.

My neck and back were constantly tight and hurting. For about 2 years I would have 3-4 migraines per month. I’m a firm believer in chiropractic care and even with having regular adjustments the adjustments wouldn’t hold. I now realize that my body just wasn’t healthy enough to mend and I would go back out of adjustment in a day or two.

Since I’ve been on a nutritional program with Dr. Carter I’ve felt better than I’ve felt in years. I’ve had 2 migraines in 4 months. My strength is coming back. I’m able to work out and do light jogging without feeling like I’ve been run over by a truck the next day. My energy is back. My neck and back feel much better, my chiropractic adjustments are holding better and my body feels like its mending. My mind is way clearer, my joints no longer have the aches I was beginning to have. Now, I still have a day when I don’t feel perfect, but that isn’t normal anymore.

I’m committed to following this plan for the duration. Dr. Carter told me that it could take 18 months to 2 years for my body to completely heal, but based on how I feel, it’s worth the commitment. I’ve been telling my friends to give Nutrition Response Testing a try. It’s worth it even if you’re not in the place I was. Feeling better and having a better quality of life is worth it." 

"If you are reading this wondering if you should be Doctor Carter's patient, Just Do It!!! He literally saved my life and probably my marriage. Last year, I retired from 26 years of army service. I was a helicopter pilot. I was a marathon runner and triathlete competing most weekends. My body took a beating from my competitive nature and my determination to do all things men did and be an equal in the army. Well, I started seriously paying the price about two years ago. This time last year, I spent 50% of my time bed ridden, couldn't make a commitment to meet anyone or plan a vacation. I was constantly canceling due to pain. My body was totally unpredictable. I had no idea if I would wake up functional or not and I didn’t know when my body would just give out again leaving me stranded somewhere. My back and hip pain was so bad that I hadn't even realized that I hadn't looked right or left in years due to neck pain. I was unable to be intimate. I was chronically fatigued and grouchy. I was only 42! My husband married a positive young vibrant woman with huge retirement plans just a few years ago but that was not who he was with now. My fear for my marriage was overshadowed by my lack of desire to live in my own body any longer. Unable to get anything other than Motrin from the army, I was desperate to do anything to save my life. I was ready for surgery, anything, I didn’t care. I decided to start with chiropractic care and rule it out to move onto surgery. This was my last ditch effort to get fixed without pills or knives. I honestly didn’t think it would make much difference. I was at the lowest point in my life. Well, I can tell you that my body is fully functional and Doctor Carter has seen me come back to life! I have a fantastic sex life which my husband is grateful for! I will never run another marathon but I am riding the dragon's tail through Gatlinburg this March on my Harley and that is good enough for me. Now, I have a normal life again. I can commit to vacations, buy tickets without fear of canceling and know that I can keep my word to anyone. It is a drug free, knife free miracle. I recommended Doctor Carter to my Mom. She has been seeing chiropractors for over 30 years and none of them have fixed her. After just 6 months, she is pain free! Doctor Carter is no ordinary doctor, he is a healer. Make your appointment now. "

"When I began the Nutrition Response Testing program with Dr. Carter, I was very skeptical. I could not imagine how pushing on your arm and could possibly relay what was going on in your internal organs. My primary doctor sent me for tests, MRI, CT scan, blood work, and upper and lower GI scope. Nothing out the ordinary was revealed as far as my intestinal problems and stomach pains. The first two weeks of supplements Dr. Carter gave me, I only felt a little more energy. Then he discovered a problem and gave me two more supplements. After taking these on a daily basis, I had no more stomach pain or intestinal problems. This was the first time in over 18 months I actually felt better. To prove to myself these supplements hit my problem target, I went out of town for 2 weeks and only had enough supplements for 1 week. My pain and intestinal problems returned and I felt badly. Upon returning home I started taking the correct dosage of supplements and again the pain disappeared. I am very pleased with the results I have gained from these supplements and can’t wait to tell my primary doctor about the results. Thank you Dr. Carter!"

  • "I had chronic pain when I started going to Dr. Carter for Nutrition Response Testing. I couldn’t dress myself or put my shoes and socks on without help. Now, I’ve lost 19 pounds, can dress myself, and walk without assistance. I feel like a new person. I was suffering from depression, my hair was falling out and has now grown back. My allergies have stopped. I don’t take any medications for it, only herbs. Also, Biofreeze is a miracle in a roll-on bottle. I use it for sore throats and pain, plus bug bites and rashes. My whole dispassion and outlook on life has changed. I feel great!"
  • "I started working with Dr. Carter in February 2015 using Nutrition Response Testing. My goal was to get as healthy as possible for a 62 year old body to be. I had started cleaning up my diet in January but became more diligent after meeting with Dr. Carter. To date I have lost approximately 17 to 20 pounds. I recently had my yearly physical and all of my blood work and reports were excellent. If you are willing to make the commitment to stick with the program he lays out for you, I am confident that you will see a major improvement in your health. I am very thankful for the knowledge that Dr. Carter has, and his mission to use that knowledge to help as many people as possible live a healthy life."
  • "DR CARTER and his staff are THE BEST!!! Me and my 15 year old daughter were hit in a rear end collision and since we have been going to Dr Carter we have seen positive results. And his massage therapist "LISA" is AMAZING!!! I HIGHLY recommend everyone to see him....."
  • "Carter is, hands down, the best chiropractor I've evervisited. He knows his stuff like no one else. I really appreciated the time he took to educate me on what was causing my lower back pain. I'm not four treatments in and my pain has decreased by about 80%. This is after three years of pain and seeing little improvement from other chiros and traditional docs. Anyone who's dealt with chronic pain knows what a big deal it is to not have to live in pain anymore!"
  • "I have listened to Dr Carter speak, instruct and advise on health and wellness...he is knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. Dr Carter's reputation is one you can count on, and one to help you feel better, and understand your health better."
  • "Dr Carter is one of the best Chiropractors in Nashville. He takes the time to listen to you and knows all of the modern techniques. His Massage Therapist is great also. I recommend them to all of my family, friends, and clients."
  • "Dr. Carter and his staff will make your experience the best it can be. Dr. Carter is experienced and knowledgeable. He will take the time to truly evaluate your needs. He offers more solutions to your needs than just an "adjustment". He will take the time to learn your problems and not only fix your needs but also offer help in providing you will continued relief."
  • "I've been to chiropractors since I was a kid. I've been to some good ones, but I think that Dr. Carter is the best. I didn't know much about kinesiology, but since going to Dr. Carter I've realized that my adjustments are far better. He is able to test where the problem areas are at and then take care of it. Then, he checks it again to make sure that the area moved properly and is functioning properly. Other doctors I've been to just start pushing and the next day it sometimes feels like something didn't move right and I have to go back and I get charged another visit just to fix what should have been fixed the day before. Not the case with Dr. Carter. He has been very thorough and his adjustments have been the best and longest lasting adjustments I can ever remember. I definitely recommend Dr. Carter and his staff to anyone."
