Nutrition Response Testing
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
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 (the assessment of your body’s current health status) and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).
The analysis is done through testing the body’s autonomic nervous system.
Nutrition Response Testing analyzes different areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ.
Each area that gives a response 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 these organs / areas, 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.
Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, as in an EKG, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area 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.
The Personalized Health Improvement Program:
Let’s say the liver or kidney areas 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 organ/areas back to strength.
Once the correct nutritional supplements are identified, as indicated by this procedure and combined with a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, as well as, then we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the organ/area to be active in the first place. Then diet and lifestyle modifications come into play so that we can prevent future deficiencies from occurring. 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 malfunctioning 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.
This is what you can expect:
1. Through an analysis of your body’s organs/areas, the Practitioner helps you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet, in order to bring about balance and better health.
2. Based on your body's response the Practitioner will recommend high quality and pure nutritional supplements or herbal tinctures that can be taken along side to your current diet.
3. Depending on your individual situation, we might also recommend that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and in your routines, in order to bring about the best possible results. Having been designed through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of patients, and on patients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Response Testing is capable of evaluating and solving your health concerns.
An analysis of your active organs / areas will be performed on follow up visits as needed. Often these follow up visits also reveal additional layers of dysfunction. These can then be addressed in the correct sequence for your body. Each patient gets a completely individualized program.
Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time – then the lock opens easily. Therefore, since every case is different, by following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, even the most complicated cases can be handled.
