What is Nutrition Response Testing™?
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).
The analysis is performed simply by using your body’s own muscle group in combination with acupressure points to determine where the underlying weakness is in the body and then, using the same technique we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in 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.
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. 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.
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 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.
It is important for you to understand Nutrition Response Testing™ because it is the foundation upon which we base our recommendations. We have found that 90% of clients who followed our recommendations based on the response test experienced better improvement in their overall health.
The Next Step
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.
