What is 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.
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if we were to analyze you using NRT 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.
So, what makes this approach unique?
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).
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 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 is to regulate the function so fo each and every organ.
Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these organs/areas have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate.
So... how do we do the analysis?
In Nutrition Response Testing, instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, the nutrition response practitioner contacts these areas with his/her one hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area being contacted is "active" or stressed, 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.
This is similar to what happens in a person with hypothermia. The persons extremities will have the most damage because the body will pull energy to protect the vital organs. This is what happens when we make contact with a stressed organ, the body pulls energy to the organ and the clients' arm will drop, or lose strength.
Think about it!
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 the 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.
Next, we create a personalized plan.
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/area back to strength.
Our decades of clinical experience tell us that we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule. We have also 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. 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!
Through the analysis of your body's organs/areas, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balance and better health.
We make these highly concentrated, therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, liquids, and in powdered form to "supplement" your current diet. They are called "food supplements" for good reason!
Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes to your diet and eating habits, in your routines, and in your lifestyle, in order to bring about the best possible results.
Is it possible to restore your health?
Many people we see in our practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another. Others have been unknowingly exposed to chemical or environmental toxins that add to deficiencies and imbalances. These deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (food, immune, chemical, or otherwise).
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 nutrients available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at the cellular level.
Nutrition Response Testing tells you when and what to use to bring about the desired result. The rest is up to you!
You can count on us to do everything in our power to help you achieve your health objectives and to help you achieve a healthier, happier life!
