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.

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.

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.
