About Dr Ray Nettles
Dr. Nettles is the inventor of the Biochemical Report Card that enables him to test all elements of our biochemistry, including our nutrition, to see how we are doing at providing the nutrients our body needs to thrive as we age. Dr Nettles also discovered that chemical imbalances within the body are responsible in many cases for: fatigue, lack of energy, trouble sleeping, lack of libido, low drive, difficulty building muscle, weight gain and age related diseases. Dr Nettles is a great advocate of the notion that food is medicine. Based on the results of each individual’s biochemical report card, he provides his patients with recommendations to improve their health, reduce risk of disease and improve their quality of life. Dr Nettles has degrees in medicine, hair loss surgery, genetics, biochemistry (AACS, A4M, ISHRS, MD) and a masters in human behavior.
