Nutrition Response Testing
What is it?
Nutrition Response Testing℠ is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of illness and non-optimum health.
Part 1- First the Analysis
The analysis is done through testing the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure 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.
NRT 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. Since human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points has become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate.
Think About It..
Each NRT 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 these reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that helps us identify what your needs and how well we are meeting those needs. 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 help you reach the next stage of optimal health?
If we were to hook you up to an EKG machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during that procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the EKG record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means. In Nutrition Response Testing™, instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the practitioner contacts these points with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscles 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 may be affecting your health.
Part 2 – the “Personalized Health Improvement Program”
Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are active, then what?
Our next step is to test specific high quality nutritional supplements against those weak areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
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 of supporting 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 Nutrition Response Testing™ we use designed clinical nutrition to address the causes of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to heal and support itself.
To sum it all up-
1. Through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balanced and improved health.
2. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to “supplement” your current diet. That’s why they are called “food supplements.”
3. Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet & eating habits and in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results.
Eat yourself into a better health state
Many people we see in our practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another. Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (chemical, microscopic, or otherwise). The good news is that it may be possible to reverse the process!
Is It Possible to Restore Your Health? Absolutely.
What could be more natural? What could be more correct? Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. The health of each organ is dependent on making the correct nutrition available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at a cellular level. After all, we are what we eat. Aren't we?
