What is Nutrition Response Testing™?
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if I were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing before it was explained to you, you might find it strange, or simply not believable – only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. I can completely understand that because when I first saw this type of work being done, my first reaction was “Hmm, what is this strange stuff?” No one was more skeptical than I was. As a result, I studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real. And I am sure happy I did because it has helped me improve my health, and because of Nutrition Response Testing, we are here and are able to help you improve your health.
Quite frankly, if you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is, and what our recommendations are based on. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through, you won’t get well. And if you are not going to get well, why do it in the first place? The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% and better range. The only reason we are here is to help you get well. We have no other reason for being here and, hopefully, you are here for that same reason. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing is right from the start.
Let’s get started
In medical practice there are two key parts:the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the “disease” or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.).
In Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease - but we also have two parts:the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).
Simply put, first we do an analysis, and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
First the Analysis
The analysis is done through testing the body’s own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.
Nutrition Response Testing is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate!
Think about it
Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body.By testing the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Doesn’t this sound like something you would want for yourself in order to predict, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to get you to the next stage of improved health?
How do we access the Nutrition Response Testing™ reflexes in order to get this information?
If I were to hook you up to an electro-cardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right?
What is actually happening during this procedure?Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart.I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.
Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing.Instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing doctor contacts these points with his/her own hand. With his other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm.If the reflex being contacted is active, the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop.This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
Why is the person who referred you feeling better?
Because we did a Nutrition Response Testing analysis for him or her, we found the “active” reflexes, and then made specific nutritional recommendations to help the body return to a improved state of health.
We are prepared to do the exact same thing for you now. Isn’t that exciting? However, the best is yet to come.
The second part – the “Personalized Health Improvement Program”
Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are active. Then what?
Our next step is to test specific, time-tested and proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
Our decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place.By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.
It’s that simple!
In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or part.
In Nutrition Response Testing™ we use “DESIGNED CLINICAL NUTRITION” to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
