Designed Clinical Nutrition

What is Designed Clinical Nutrition?

It is defined as:

Designed: Especially prepared for you, based on a specific plan.

Clinical: Pertaining to the results achieved in clinical use on a multitude of patients over many years.

Nutrition: Real food, as designed by Nature, to enable the body to repair itself and become healthier.

After you receive your analysis, you will get a specifically designed nutrition program, based off the information your body provides.

Most programs include dietary suggestions (as well as whole food supplements) to aid your body in healing itself.

Concentrated whole food supplements are used. These have been prepared by a unique process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components.

A personalized nutrition plan, designed just for you, elevates the potential of success.


How do I know which supplements are right for me?

After we identify the underlying reason your body is creating symptoms, we can isolate and verify the precise whole food supplements (and quantities) your body needs to resolve its problems. Our goal is to have you take as few supplements as possible, with your body being fully addressed and restored at the same time.

What are whole foods?

“Whole food” is defined as “food that has undergone very little processing and has been grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.”

A good example is carrots. Carrots are rich in vitamin A complex. A “complex” is something made up of different parts which work together. Synthetic vitamins do not contain the whole complex (as found in Nature).

If testing indicated a vitamin A deficiency, we would look for a whole food high in vitamin A complex (and carrots would be a likely source). A supplement rich in this complex would then be included in your program. We pride ourselves on only using the highest quality whole food supplements available.

Whole food supplements are entirely derived from specific whole foods, organically grown and prepared in such a way that preserves their vital enzymes and vitamins; making them the optimum vitamin-mineral products.

Now in incredibly concentrated form, your body can get complete nutrition from this small tablet! By restoring the nutrition on which your body was founded, it is possible to enable your body to heal itself….just as Nature intended.

I thought I ate well…

Although deficiencies may be due to illness, it is likely that other factors may be contributing to the problem also, some of which may be contained in the food you eat every day.

A few factors typical of the “food” commercially available in all grocery stores and restaurants:

  • Microwaving
  • Genetic engineering
  • Food Coloring
  • Synthetic Additives
  • Flash Freezing
  • Preservatives
  • Hormones and antibiotics (found in meat, chicken, etc.)
  • Produce grown in soil that has been robbed of its nutrients
  • Harmful chemicals and metals (such as pcb’s and mercury in some fish).

If any of these are involved in the creation or processing of your food, then what you are eating is really just “disguised” as food.

Not only does this “food” have insufficient nutritional value, it may also contain toxins, which work against your body and your health.

In contrast, whole foods that have not been altered or contaminated contain genuine replacement parts as part of Nature’s design.

Can’t I just eat better?

There has been a drastic decline in the quality of food over the past 70 years resulting in a nation of sick people who are dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. Your body’s function is founded on nourishment from the environment (which until recently did not include heavy metals, toxic chemicals and pesticides).

Current food conditions make it next to impossible to get all of the nutritional components your body requires to heal and/or maintain resiliency.

How long will it take for me to start feeling healthy again?

Each case is handled on an individual basis. The majority of patients who adhere to their programs have reported noticing positive changes in the first 4 to 6 weeks (some longer, and some sooner). Your improvement is directly proportional to the adherence to your program.

Do I have to stay on a Designed Clinical Nutrition regimen forever?

Through the course of your program additional layers will show up. For example, if you have a long-term health problem, you may find that your body may (or may not) want to address this first. Your body will dictate its priority each time you are tested.

When its priority problem is handled with correct nutrients, your next test may reveal another major issue (which may have been long hidden and unhandled).

As this happens, we will adjust your program. Our goal is to have you on as few supplements as possible.

Good dietary habits will always be encouraged. If you continue poor habits, this will perpetuate ill health and inhibit your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

As you feel better and your health improves, you will likely find yourself wanting to maintain a well-balanced and healthy diet as your normal routine.

How do I get a Designed Clinical Nutrition program?

As a Nutrition Response Testing℠ patient, you will receive an individualized program based on the results of your analysis. The program will match the exact needs of your body through diet and nutritional supplementation.

The elements in your personal Designed Clinical Nutrition program are nutrients that your body is not currently receiving and/or assimilating.


Don’t take our word for it. Listen to our patients!

My treatment with Nutrition Response Testing℠ and the Designed Clinical Nutrition protocol has significantly improved my quality of life.

This treatment has resulted in a decrease in the number of migraines I experience. I typically had from two to three weekly and now have one every few months. My arthritic pain has decreased as well. As a result of this, I am sleeping more soundly, moving more easily and have more energy.  I have also lost 25 pounds!

I started the NRT program mainly to stay healthy and active. I got so much more.

I have never had such a thorough evaluation of my body before. Dr. Trostel told me what they found and asked me what I wanted to work on. I told her I wanted to get and stay healthy and lose weight and keep it off.  I got so much more! I have gained energy and stamina and lost weight. But in addition I lost inches and fat. I feel great and sleep better. I am walking 3-5 miles daily and quickly up to 4 mph.

It has been 3 months since I started the Nutrition program. My acid reflux is gone.

This girl is thrilled! I followed Dr. Trostel’s recommendations and program, and 12 weeks was the turning point for me. My hair loss has become normal and my energy levels are increasing. I look forward to continuing on this journey of improved health without medication.

Prior to visiting Dr. Trostel, I had stiffness in my joints, frequent urination at night and swelling in my ankles.

Now I have considerably lets stiffness in my joints, much less frequent urination and the swelling in my ankles have improved. The supplements have helped tremendously. I would recommend people to utilize the supplements and visit Dr. Trostel.

When I started, I suffered from dry/itchy scalp, tearfulness, thinning hair, constipation and hot flashes.

Despite the over-the-counter medications I tried, there wasn’t any relief. I was miserable. After a few weeks, I noticed the tearfulness and hot flashes were less frequent. The scalp and thinning hair was less bothersome. I was also more regular. Now constipation is no longer an issue. I now feel great! I feel more confident and better equipped to handle daily issues. Wish I would have started sooner.
