Nutrition Response Testing® is a precise and scientific technique for discovering the body’s needs for the appropriate nutritional and dietary support. If we were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing 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. If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing® is and what our recommendations are based on. We do not diagnose or treat disease. We first do an analysis, an assessment of your body’s current health status, and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
The analysis is done by testing the body’s own neurological reflexes and certain acupuncture points. Nutrition Response Testing analyzes the different points and 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. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it 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.
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 the Nutrition Response Testing® reflexes, 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. 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 get you to the next stage of improved health?
If I were to hook you up to an electrocardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing. Instead of connecting electrodes to the reflex areas being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with their own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle 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 can be affecting your health.
