Lance D. Lipton; DC, F.I.A.C.A., ACT NRT
In practice since 1983. Winner - “Best in Chester County” Reader Choice Award, Daily Local News.
Dr. Lipton was born and raised in Delaware County PA. He attended Marple Newtown High School in Newtown Square, PA., where he graduated in 1974. He attended Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture in Doylestown, PA where he was a Pre- Veterinarian major. He graduated in 1978 with Honors with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Husbandry. Being raised in a medical family, with a father that had chronic debilitating headaches, which were not being helped medically, he became interested in alternative methods of healing. Upon investigation he found that Chiropractic was his calling and went on to use his knowledge to make a true difference in his father's, therefore his family’s life through Chiropractic. He attended NY Chiropractic College and graduated with honors in 1983. Upon graduation, he moved back to PA and opened a solo practice in 1984. He uses Diversified chiropractic technique with practice emphasis on families including small children and infants. Continuing education lead him to study Acupuncture and nutrition. He became a fellow in the International Academy of Clinical Acupuncture in 1986. He also used of a technique called contact reflex analysis (CRA), a nutrition diagnostic technique. Over 30 years of practice he saw that patients were not responding as they once did to traditional medical and chiropractic care. There was a missing piece of the puzzle. The trend of “Fast foods” and over-processed foods lacked the nutritional building blocks to keep the body healthy. Drastic changes were needed to help patients heal. Dr. Lipton discovered a technique called Nutrition Response Testing that emphasized healing the body through the proper intake of food, whole food supplementation, and the elimination of toxins and that were building up in the body. He was trained at the Advanced level in Nutrition Response Testing in 2007. "Over 30 years of practice I have never seen a combination of techniques work so well together to return the body to true health and prevent disease. The best and least expensive form of health care is prevention."
Nutrition Response Testing in combination with Chiropractic are natural approaches that are extremely effective for dealing with current health problems as well as prevent future health issues.

Susan Stuntebeck; RN, BSN
Susan's journey to Lipton Natural Health Improvement Center began with a search for an answer to her chronic back and muscle pain that she had been experiencing for the past 10 years. She had tried everything from massage, physical therapy, removing gluten and dairy from her diet, chiropractic, acupuncture, extensive lab testing, detox, and adrenal and GI support. Her pain would come and go with these interventions, but would not cease completely. Dr. Lipton found the underlying causes for her pain on the first visit. She started a nutritional program that quickly changed the way she was feeling, for the better. She was amazed at her life-changing results, considering she spent the last 10 years searching for answers. Her healing and health improvements continue, as she remains committed to achieving optimal health and vitality.
Susan has had a profound turnaround in her health since beginning her care at Lipton Natural Health Improvement Center; she knew that this was a career path that she wanted to pursue. She quickly attended the first Nutrition Response Testing workshop in Florida and began to train alongside Dr. Lipton. She is excited to be a part of this healing process and to help others achieve their best lives.
