At Optimum Wellness Solutions, we are excited to offer Nutrition Response Testing and Functional Wellness services to patients in the Des Moines metro area. We offer a non-invasive method for analyzing the body to determine the root cause of ill health. Through whole food supplementation, we are able to safely and naturally give the body just what it needs to repair itself in order to attain a your ideal state of health and wellness.




Hi, I'm Amy Vowles, and I am delighted to be offering Nutrition and Functional Wellness services to the Des Moines Metro area.  Because of the healing I have found through Nutrition Response Testing I feel healthier than I have in my life, but it wasn't always this way.  

I spent over a year of my life battling mystery illnesses that doctors just couldn't explain. The minute I would get one health issue under control, another would follow. It seemed like no one could help me.

Then Nutrition Response Testing helped me get my life back.  In a very short period of time, health issues I feared I would never get rid of began to disappear. I had energy again, and most importantly, I felt like I could live my life again! 

Now I have the honor of being able to help other people regain their health as I have mine, through Nutrition Response Testing.  


Amy is board-certified in Clinical Nutrition and has a Master’s degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition from Northeast College of Health Sciences.  She also has an undergraduate health sciences degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic.  She is an Advanced Clinically Trained Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner, and opened Optimum Wellness Solutions in 2018 with the goal of helping others like herself find true healing.

While Nutrition Response Testing remains our foundational technique, Amy incorporates other techniques such as Quantum Neuro Reset Therapy (QNRT), Applied Bio Energy Analysis and neurological rehab modalities into her practice.  She has also received additional training and certifications from The Institute for Functional Medicine, Carrick Institute for Functional Neurology, The International Foundation for Nutrition and Health, and Trinity School of Natural Health.

Amy has vast clinical experience helping patients with every kind of health condition.  She has advanced training and a particular interest in the management of chronic infections, neurological problems, and concussion/TBI recovery.  Amy truly believes that all conditions can be improved or eliminated if we ask the right questions and give the body the tools it needs to heal.



I am Kelsey Dopheide, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help patients improve their health as I have mine.

This practice has become very personal to me, it saved my health!


I have always had health issues. I would start thinking I was better, and the next thing I knew something else was arising. My health was deteriorating fast, leaving me with an autoimmune disease, but no answers.  Not understanding what the future would look like, I wanted to find a solution. The doctors said there was no cure, just medications with a list of side effects longer than my arm! That answer wasn’t good enough for me! 

I did my own research and found Nutrition Response Testing. I finally found the answers to getting my health back. I feel great, and the symptoms have gone away! I can proudly say I live a life free of medication.  

After finding the solution to my health issues, I want to be able to help so many find their second chance and healthy living with Nutrition Response Testing!

"I reached out to Amy because I was having ongoing and incredibly painful acid reflux. Amy quickly and professionally identified my issue and gave me a complete (and reasonably priced) regimen of natural supplements to get my gut back in order. After only two weeks I started to notice a difference!"

"My daughter has suffered from eczema for over 14 years. Just a few weeks after visiting Amy and implementing the diet changes and specific supplements, she began to see improvement. After 4 months, the eczema is gone. You can’t even see where it was!"
