About Us

The Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor was founded in 2004. NHCAA evolved from Dr. Darren Schmidt’s first office called The Wholistic Doctor which he opened in Ann Arbor in 2000.

Then in 2004 after searching for more than a decade for natural health remedies that would make people truly healthy Dr. Schmidt discovered Nutrition Response Testing.

The success was immediate, using Nutrition Response Testing℠ real food, whole-food supplements and traditional chiropractic he finally started getting the results he’d knew were possible. Patients began attaining stable health improvement that lasted. Where Chiropractic alone couldn’t handle every health challenge paired with Nutrition Response Testing he was now able to help people achieve Total Health Restoration.

Since the transformation to the Nutritional Healing Center in 2004 the purpose has been to create a truly healthy Ann Arbor.  NHCAA  has grown by more than 10 times and now has helped thousands upon thousands to become free of pain, hormone problems, digestive issues and many other chronic health conditions. All without drugs or surgery.  Healthcare as Mother Nature Intended.
