“He is THE MAN! He gave me the knowledge and resources I needed to get my life on track.” At 19, I was told I had PCOS (poly cystic ovary syndrome) and was informed having children would be difficult, if at all. After three years of medication and dieting to lose 20% of my bodyweight … I gave up – no luck with a cycle on my own. My husband and I ended up at the CNY Fertility Clinic and after numerous tests they found that my ovaries were still not working. So for another year we tried treatment after treatment – nothing worked. I put on over 40 lbs. and also developed high blood pressure. We decided to take a break! After a few months had passed, we were introduced to Dr. Porter’s Nutrition Response Testing Program. At first I was thinking this man is nuts, but keeping an open mind, learned he wanted to give me a better life! I did the program for a year – 12 visits. In that year, I lost 32 pounds and brought my blood pressure back to normal … and, my husband and I are expecting our first child in a few months. I will definitely be bringing our daughter in to be tested. ~Jade M., Pulaski, NY

“Dr. Porter has empowered me to realize that I have more control than I previously believed.” I considered little aches and pains and a high level of stress “normal” and “typical” resulting from everyday challenges of life. I came to Dr. Porter through the encouragement of a dear friend. Assuming he could “fix” my chronic back/neck issues. Following a few sessions I mentioned something to him that I was pretty sure he could not assist me through … I was wrong! My knees hurt terribly and it had been going on for over five months … I had been to doctors … been prescribed meds … seen a orthopedic specialist and had MRIs … but was told there was nothing surgery could do. I was given medications for pain and inflammation and told it would be months or even years before I would be able to get back to the gym and my normal routine. Dr. Porter was the change-maker. He encouraged me to see the possibilities that a proper nutritional program could make at a demonstration/information night. I signed on and began almost immediately. Nothing was ignored and I felt completely taken care of in this office. Within a week my knees were 50% better! They are now 99.9% better; I eat right, exercise, sleep well, have been taken completely off cholesterol & blood pressure medication, AND I went from a woman’s size 10/12 to a size 6! I will always be thankful to Dr. Porter. ~Linda F., Dexter, NY

“I didn’t like the thought of being on medication the rest of my life. I had suffered with headaches for over 35 years. Dr. Porter tested me for allergies and from the 1st visit on, my headaches were not as intense and didn’t last as long. By my 3rd and 4th visits they were gone all together! In all honesty, at first, it seemed like voo doo, but I couldn’t argue with success. Dr. Porter didn’t have to convince me to follow through with the program. I would certainly recommend this treatment (Accelerated Allergy Clearing Technique) to anyone with this problem.” ~Jim S., Plessis, NY

“I am grateful to Dr. Porter for his expertise … In 1946, I was thrown off a tractor while baling hay and have had knee pain ever since. My doctor, at the time of the accident, told me to put ice on them. The knee pain and swelling never went away. Everytime I got up to walk, it was very painful and I walked with a cane because of the pain. After I started seeing Dr. Porter and followed his Nutrition Response Testing program taking the recommended supplements, I now can walk without any pain in my knees. I only use the cane for balance.” ~Robert

“I don’t know how it works, but … I had three distinct medical problems when I entered Dr. Porter’s office. For one of the ailments, a presciption side effect was cataracts. After eye surgery, the three medical conditions continued. Rather than have a different surgery, it was out of desperation that I agreed to consult with Dr. Porter , and participate in the Nutrition Response Testing program. I don’t know how it works, but all three medical problems have either been eliminated or reduced. ~Georgette S., Adams, NY

“Thank you Dr. Porter! You have helped me give myself a great gift. I suffered from daily brain fog. I had to write down even simple things to remember. My energy was low, I wasn’t sleeping well and would fall asleep by 8pm. I started the Nutrition Response Testing program you recommended and began to notice small improvements. With the supplements you provided for me and doing a daily food journal, I was able to improve my diet. The food journal was very important and revealing. After a short period, my energy level increased and brain fog was less and less. I stopped ingesting pharmaceuticals … my blood pressure is normal and my lightheadedness is almost gone. I am sleeping so much better, wake up refreshed and am better focused during the day.” ~ Joanne K., Clayton, NY

“Dr. Porter is giving me my life back! I thought I was starting to get M.S. I couldn’t walk without a limp and I had serious aches and pains everywhere. I had severe acid reflux and Candida. I had debilitating headaches and ‘brain fog’. I felt weak and shaky much of the time, no energy and no interest in anything. Today, most of those symptoms are gone and without invasive procedures or toxic medicines. Dr. Porter and his methods are fantastic. He uses natural whole food supplements as part of the treatment. I am so glad my sister recommended him to me.” ~Virginia M., Baldwinsville, NY

“It’s hard to express in words what Dr. Porter has done for me, but I will try. For the last 10 plus years I have had attacks of A-Fib (Atrial Fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat). I would have to go to the hospital to get cardioverted. These attacks would occur every couple of months, then quit. I went to the Cleveland Clinic and was told that I would have to have an operation or take a strong dangerous medicine daily. I opted for the operation, but fortunately I heard about Dr. Porter and went to see him … that was May 2009. Using various methods including Nutrition Response Testing, taking Standard Process products and eating a nutritious diet, I slowly started to improve, and I cancelled the operation. Since January of 2011, now August 2011, my A-Fibs have been practically non-existent. I cannot express my gratitude enough for Dr. Porter’s ability to help, when all other medical professionals wanted to give medicine or surgery as the only solution and not cure the underlying problem!!” ~Earl W. G., North Syracuse, NY

“I feel better than I have in years. I had suffered from allergies since I was 14 years old and had tried every allergy medicine available, both prescription and over-the-counter. I have been on Dr. Porter’s program for 4 months, I am no longer on medication, am allergy free, and have lost 35 lbs.” I am grateful for his help.” ~Roberta L., Watertown, NY

“I haven’t felt this good in years! I had suffered with migraines and was on daily medication and special migraine meds. I went into Dr. Porter’s office with a headache and sciatic nerve pain in my hip and leg … and left headache free and pain free. I then experienced one more migraine … Dr. Porter said that this was NOT acceptable, but to me it was very acceptable. He checked me for scars … after treatment with cold laser and wheat germ oil … long and behold I have not experienced another migraine. And, my sciatic nerve problem has disappeared. I also had sleep problems and no longer take prescription sleeping pills. He put me on supplements for night sweats and they are not as serious as they once were. I thought Dr. Porter was talking voo doo when I first went to him, but he has since made me a believer.” ~Sandra H., Adams Center, NY

“I’ve lost over 20 pounds doing the Nutrition Response Testing program and no longer experience swollen ankles and feet (unless I eat sugar). My chronic cough is all but gone, my dry eyes feel better than they have in years, my heart is stronger than before and my ‘lousy’ cholesterol dropped 50 points! Based on my own experience, I can, without hesitation recommend Dr. Porter and his very competent and supportive staff. Follow their advice, keep your appointments and let them guide you into becoming a HEALTHIER YOU!!!” ~Karen F., Clayton, NY

“Not only is he an excellent doctor, he is a very caring man who really listens. Before I went to see Dr. Porter I had been on pain medicine for months and as time went on the orthopedic doctor kept increasing the dose. By the time I realized what was happening to me I had become very depressed and the orthopedic doctor said that I had post-operative depression. I was crying all the time and I was having hot flashes continually. The feeling I had was so awful that I walked into Dr. Porter’s office crying and asking if he could help me. He took me right in and started testing me with different smells and placing my hand on different parts of my body to find out what was causing these feelings. He put me on a supplement and had me come back in a week. Within that first week I was starting to feel a little better and my hot flashes were becoming less frequent and I wasn’t crying so much. The next week he put me on two more supplements and within three weeks I was almost back to my old self. I couldn’t have done it without Dr. Porter.” ~Judy N., Rodman, NY

“Dr. Porter has definitely put me on track.” My first visit to Dr. Porter came a year and a half after surgery and radiation treatment for cancer. I had experienced a difficult time with pain, loss of energy and weight loss. After visiting numerous doctors and even seeking a diagnosis during a two-week stay at the Rochester, MN, Mayo Clinic, no one had the answer to my problems. The only advice I received was to try a variety of prescribed pain relievers. None of them worked. During my first appointment with Dr. Porter I was encouraged. Today, I have a marked increase in strength and energy. I exercise regularly and enjoy outdoor activities and best of all, being interactive with my grandchildren again. I take no drugs. Although I am not entirely back to what I would consider to be my normal life, I credit him and his caring professional staff for this change. They are dedicated and sensitive to their patients’ needs and I am confident that with their help I will continue to make progress.” ~Pat .G., Dexter, NY

“I feel like a new person … Dr. Porter, I am writing you this letter thanking you from the bottom of my heart. You truly are an answered prayer. Before coming to your office, I went to three different hospitals (numerous times). All gave me medicine and sent me home. I was having bad ear-aches, allergies and severe migraines at least 7 or 8 times a month. My neck hurt so bad I couldn’t move it. I was having very bad panic attacks. (I felt like I couldn’t breathe.) Depression was increasing by the day. I was to the point of giving up. After my last hospital visit, I came home knowing they did nothing for me. I went into my bedroom and cried. Then I prayed to God! I said to the Lord, “I’ve always been told you will give me no more than a person can handle”. I told God I couldn’t go on anymore. Please help me. The very next morning when I woke up I picked up the phone book and began looking for a doctor. I saw your picture and name. I called your office and made an appointment. That was the day my life changed! After my first visit, I never had another panic attack. What a blessing! Since I’ve been a patient under your care, I have had no more allergies or earaches. I get headaches once in awhile, but nothing like before! As for the depression, it no longer exists. . I can’t stress enough how great I feel. My self-esteem is excellent.” ~A patient who has been blessed!

“My energy level has increased so much. I had my doubts when I first went to see Dr. Porter, but a friend had said that I had nothing to lose except weight, poor eating habits, joint pain, and high blood sugar. Well, after five months of following his Nutrition Response Testing, I see that she was right!! While on this program I have lost 38 pounds and have seen my morning blood sugar go from the 250’s down to the 90’s. I have changed my eating habits and enjoy the changes. Before doing Dr. Porter’s program, I was taking a nap every afternoon. I now have not felt the need for a nap in at least four months. The edematous ankles that I’ve lived with for a few years have gone back to their normal size. For years my knees had been so painful that even after having one knee replaced, I still went up and down stairs one at a time because of the pain. I now can walk longer and longer distances without pain. I highly recommend Dr. Dale Porter and Nutrition Response Testing to anyone who desires a more healthy life.” ~Jo Ann R., Henderson Harbor, NY

He introduced us to Quintessential Applications. Our son Brandon is a cancer survivor. Having said that, I want you to know that we visited Dr. Porter’s office because of problems that we were told had nothing to do with that fact. Brandon’s current diagnosis was irritable bowel syndrome.

He has had digestive problems off and on his entire life … having stomachaches and diarrhea daily. Yes, daily! Imagine the pain he was in. We treated locally and were finally referred to a specialist in Syracuse. He was tested for lactose intolerance (which was negative) and was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux. Brandon began taking hyoscyamine to help control the irritable bowel problems three times a day and nexium once a day for the acid reflux. The nexium helped immediately and although hyoscyamine helped, it didn’t completely relieve his symptoms. To make matters worse, the hyoscyamine made him so dizzy he was actually running into walls at school. We tried lowering his dosage, but as soon as we did the diarrhea returned. Seeing our frustration, a friend referred us to Dr. Porter.

We visited Dr. Porter and he listened intently to Brandon’s symptoms and treatment plan. He immediately agreed that Brandon’s body had seen a great deal of trauma and that the cancer, surgeries, and scar tissue played a big part in his current diagnosis. He explained that Brandon’s brain was having a hard time recognizing that it was OK that we had removed his adrenal gland. He explained that he has some weaknesses that had to be identified and that his body needed to be “re-booted”.

He treated Brandon using QA (Quintessential Applications) protocol, explained the benefits of Total Probiotics to us and suggested that Brandon take one pill three times daily. The results from this first visit were immediate. For the first time in months Brandon did not have diarrhea. We were more that a little wary of this instant success. The entire week went by and although Brandon still complained of an upset stomach off and on, the diarrhea had completely disappeared. Brandon was on the mend and feeling much better. We continued to visit Dr. Porter every couple of weeks. Unfortunately, things started to take a step backwards. The diarrhea was returning a couple times a week and he complained of stomachaches daily. Dr. Porter explained to us that although Brandon was not lactose intolerant that he was, in fact, sensitive to dairy. We started removing dairy from his diet and discovered that cheese and ice cream were the things that triggered Brandon’s problems and totally removed them from his diet. The diarrhea disappeared once again. Still, the stomachaches continued. Dr. Porter went in search of the problem, again applying the Quintessential Applications, and determined that Brandon was still having problems in his intestines. He introduced Brandon to a supplement and now he is finally beginning to experience life without constant pain. Not only that, but he is no longer taking any the medicines prescribed by his specialist. At his follow-up appointment with her, she reviewed the ingredients in the supplements and totally supported the use of them and was happy about Brandon’s progress.
I cannot express the gratitude we feel towards Dr. Porter for what he has done for our son; and I strongly urge you to put your trust in him.”

~Frank & Tammy F., Adams Center, NY

“I cannot thank you enough. Dr. Porter, you have done wonders for my family and me over the last five years. It all started out when my then 10-year-old son was suffering from severe environmental allergies. At the time you started treating my son he was on four different prescription medicines. Some of which he took twelve months a year. Even on all four of the medicines, the months of July and August were still a real challenge. We stuck by you for nearly two years. Visited you two times a week for the first few months and gradually worked down to once a month. The minute my son started a flare up we would visit you. I can’t tell you how many times he said to me on the way home, “Mom, I can already breathe out of my nose; or Mom, my eyes already don’t itch anymore!” It was amazing. Nearly five years after our first visit he is pretty much allergy free. He has not taken ANY antibiotics since our very first visit with you and he takes NO medicine of any kind.

Two years ago my husband was suffering from the shingles. After two weeks of no relief I suggested a visit with you. He frowned at me but was extremely uncomfortable and said “yes”. I had to drive him to the visit and he basically crawled into your office. After your “procedures” he walked out a new man. His shingles were not gone, but you put him into a state in which he was able to function. From that day forward he improved drastically. I cannot tell you how many people he has told this to (including me at least 100 times!) He was completely thankful to you for helping him through his ordeal.

May 2006 – Now it was my turn to put you to the test. I had been dealing with two issues since January 2006. I had a mouth full of teeth that just hurt and I had very shallow burps all day long. My teeth would hurt so badly all day but I was able to sleep perfectly fine! I didn’t understand any more than any of the doctors that I visited did. My dentist cleared me, so I moved on to the medical doctors. The first one I went to told me I had a sinus infection and gave me an antibiotic and sent me on my way. I did not fill my prescription, I just went home frustrated. I went to a different medical doctor. That one put me on medicine for neuropathy. I was holding my own until the middle of March. I got sick, was put on an antibiotic for I am not sure what because they never diagnosed me. From that point on my world fell apart. I spent 13 days off my feet. I made several trips to two medical doctors and one trip to the E.R. Throughout this time I had been given four different prescriptions, a shot, and had blood drawn twice! On the 13th day when I crawled into the MD’s office, they gave me a strong prescription that (I thought) fixed me in 12 hours. For two weeks I was on top of the world, then I crashed big time. Throughout this whole ordeal, my mom kept saying, “let’s go see Dr. Porter and I just shrugged my shoulders. (I knew what he had previously done – so WHY did I hesitate? I have no idea). I thought something horrible was wrong with me, I felt terrible. Well, when I crashed, I agreed to see Dr. Porter. I soon found out that you should have been my VERY FIRST call. At the first visit, you fixed one of my problems BEFORE I left the office. On the next visit you fixed my second issue, my teeth. And on the third visit I believe you fixed my burps. I am just sitting here typing this in awe! In concluding this I would like to say that I WILL NOT call the MD’s. My FIRST call will be to you DR. PORTER. You have proved to me and my family that your “hocus pocus” which I know MOST people call your work works just fine for us. My crash was spending three full days crying for no reason. I honestly thought I must be depressed and don’t realize it. This started on a Friday night so my first opportunity to make a phone call was Monday morning. I called my mom Monday morning and told her I had an appointment with Dr. Porter. (I was still crying.) Oh, and by the way folks – I have not taken any of my medicines since a few days after my first visit and had I gone back to the MD’s when I chose to visit Dr. Porter, there is NO doubt in my mind that I would have been given yet another prescription to fix a problem that their previous prescription was causing me (a sick gut!) which we are working on now. THANK YOU DR. PORTER. ~Kelly W., Adams Center, NY
