Nutrition is a key component to health and well being. Many chronic health issues can be prevented, supported, and often alleviated via dietary intervention. Nutrition also plays a key role in reducing painful inflammation that is associated with so many of today’s chronic illnesses.  Nutrition Response Testing is a perfect place to start feeling better and more energized. Food is powerful and can positively affect our health from the inside out!

 I am a former Registered Respiratory Therapist and now a Family Nurse Practitioner licensed in the State of Texas. I am nationally certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). I have a strong practice in primary care, functional medicine, and clinical nutrition. 

I’ve had a passion for natural health and healing most of my life. I began my journey as a child growing up watching the progression of various autoimmune diseases in close family members. From multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis to lupus. I personally experienced my own mother’s struggle with lupus resulting in chronic symptoms, and early disability while her medical professionals for years refused to acknowledge she was sick. When it became obvious that something was wrong, she was told there was nothing anyone could do.  She was disabled for 5 years before she died at age 56.

I made the decision to become a nurse practitioner to help men and women overcome the symptoms of autoimmune disease and chronic inflammation.

I specialize in clinical nutrition and lifestyle strategies to address concerns such as hormonal health, gastrointestinal disorders, immune health, and chronic inflammation for men and women ages 35 and up. 





Functional Medicine Approach

Clinical Assessment

Your journey begins with a thorough clinical assessment and detailed health history with the provider. With great care, our team will take our time – approximately one hour for your first visit – to discuss all of your current health concerns, perform a physical exam, and dive into the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence your long-term health. Together, we will mutually agree on a plan that puts you in the driver’s seat of your treatment.


Diagnostic Testing

Following your initial assessment, we may order a series of diagnostic exams, intended to get a comprehensive picture of your health and biochemical background. These range from comprehensive blood, urine, saliva, and stool analyses to both traditional and specialty labs.

Lifestyle Strategies

After your laboratory assessments are completed, our team will schedule a complete review of the findings. During this time together, you will have a comprehensive discussion of your results and – more importantly – set a course of action to help you achieve both short-term and long-term goals. This may include dietary changes, natural supplementation, IV nutrition, and/or lifestyle changes. We may also recommend medication or concurrent treatment with a medical specialist, a chiropractor or an acupuncturist.


Clinical Nutrition Approach

Your First Visit

We first perform a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for Nutrition Response Testing. This consists of a consultation, examination, and full-body scan. Nutritionally stressed organs will be identified and the source of stress pinpointed. Nutritional supplements and dietary changes will be determined to help your body adapt to stress, rebuild and restore itself to health naturally.


Your Second Visit

On your second visit, we will present a report of findings from the initial evaluation. If you decide to begin a nutrition response program on this day, the practitioner will again perform a full-body scan in which she double checks her initial findings for changes and determines the proper dosing of each product recommended. You may also bring in any supplements from home to be tested on this visit.

Follow-up Program

Every case is handled differently, but typically most patients require 6- 12 visits over a course of 12-18 weeks. Maintenance visits may also be necessary at a frequency of every 1 to 3 months. 

The average cost of nutritional supplements will run between $50 & $200 per month during the healing and observation phases, less for the maintenance phase. Some cases require more, some less. Each case is different

Recent Customer Reviews

Tracey Mixon has a bedside manner most patients never encounter these days anymore! She is so kind, understanding, supportive, and respectful–“just what the doctor ordered” for my 85-year-old mother whose blood pressure shoots off the charts on the extremely rare occasions that she needs medical care. Tracey takes all the time needed to explain her observations, discuss the history, and consider alternative approaches to care. She stole my mom’s heart when she responded to her question whether it’s even worth treating the edema in her legs seeing how old she is, by leaning in and whispering emphatically, “YOU’re worth it!”

Seguin, TX

Quick background. I have kidney disease and have had it for years. I was always tired and sluggish. When Tracey saw this she was 100% committed to helping me get my health back to where it needed to be. She set me up with a juice cleanse and gave me a diet program to help me get all of my micronutrients. After 3 months not only did my kidney function improve but I feel great. Even better than what I felt like 10 years ago. Pay “Dr. Tracey” a visit. You won’t regret it.
