Understanding Nutrition Response Testing
Let’s start with the basics.
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 any disease, rather we analyze and recommend a personalized health improvement program that restores the body’s ability to heal itself. Simply put, we perform an analysis to find the hidden cause of your symptoms, and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis.
The 1st Part - Your Comprehensive Analysis
We determine the precise reason for your symptoms; whether illness, aches, pains, or even stressed/misaligned joints, by testing your body’s organ acupuncture points and neurological reflexes. The ancient Chinese system of acupuncture is a validated system based on human anatomy that has not changed significantly in thousands of years. The utilization of these points has become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate!
Nutrition Response Testing basically works like this: we find out which key organs are not properly functioning, and therefore causing your symptoms, by monitoring the strength of a specific reflex while contacting organ acupuncture points on the surface of the body. The strength of your reflex relates to the state of health and flow of energy for the corresponding organ within the body. If a stressor such as a toxic organism, toxic substance, food sensitivity or nutrient deficiency is weakening one of your organs, the neurologic reflex for that organ will be weak on testing.
Next, we identify the exact stressor (organisms, toxic substances, allergens and/or nutritional deficiencies) inside the body by monitoring your reflex strength while placing the identical substance outside the body. This non-invasive and precise method of analysis can correctly identify stressors that are hidden from most tests.
How do we access the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes in order to get this information?
If we were to hook you up to an electrocardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right?
What is actually happening during this procedure? Electrical energy from the heart runs through the wires to a machine that records the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart.
We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means. With Nutrition Response Testing, instead of connecting you to electrodes, the Nutrition Response Testing doctor contacts organ acupuncture points with his/her own hand. With his/her other hand, they test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ point being contacted is weak, the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm which will then weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction that affects your health.
In fact, this method of analysis is so precise it allows us to scan your entire body and get a complete understanding of the status of each and every organ, joint, muscle, hair, skin, everything. But would we address everything all at once? No. We prioritize. And everyone is different from everyone else.
Think about it Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that organ’s health status is having on the body. And think about this: We are all unique with unique body types and health histories. Wouldn’t you expect to find differences between the reasons why YOU have your stress, fatigue or high blood pressure as opposed to why your sister or neighbor has it? Wouldn’t you expect to get superior results by finding the hidden cause and precisely addressing your unique health situation? Doesn’t this sound like something you would want for yourself in order to identify, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to get you to the next stage of improved health?
Why are so many of our patients feeling better?
Because when we did a Nutrition Response Testing analysis for him or her, we found the “weak reflexes” and exact stressor(s) causing those weaknesses. They then followed our specific recommendations, using Designed Clinical Nutrition to help their body return to an improved state of health.
It's that simple!
