Nutrition Response Testing is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the overall state of health and to the flow of energy in every organ and function of the body.
We first start by simply testing the body’s own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. What does this mean? 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 thousand-year-old ancient Chinese system of acupuncture. Why is this important? Because the human anatomy has not changed significantly, analysis of these reflexes and specific points are very accurate, and have, thus, become extremely useful in our practice.
Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack thereof, is having on the body.
Nutrition Response Testing allows us to predict, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to get you to the next stage of improved health.
By testing these 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.
If you are like many of the people who come to us for help, then you, most likely, have one or more health conditions that won’t go away. You may have visited doctors and other alternative practitioners in the past, without receiving the results you had hoped for or expected. Now, your health conditions may be significantly affecting your life, your career, family, and/or your personal finances. You realize that these conditions are probably not going to get better unless the real source of the problem is found and corrected.
The Nutritional component of healing consists of the basic diet and supplementation of that diet. Nutritional recommendations vary from person to person, and it may take a few weeks to discover what works best for your body. Once we determine what is best for your body, you will feel better, your weight will normalize, and you will function better. If you have been ill for a long time, allow adequate time to recover and achieve whole-body health. There is a real difference between what it takes to heal and just covering up symptoms with drugs.
How Does Nutrition Response Testing Work?
Our simple, two-step process
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific; however, without a proper, thorough understanding of the practice, you might find it strange, or simply not believable -- only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before.
In conventional medical practice there are two key parts:
- the diagnosis: identifying and/or naming the “disease” or syndrome;
- the treatment: drugs, surgery, etc. to treat said disease.
In Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease, but we do have our own two-step process. 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.
- Analysis - In order to gain the information needed, the doctor will access Nutrition Response Testing reflexes by contacting various points on your body with her own hand, while testing the muscle strength with her other hand. If the reflex being contacted is "active", the nervous system will respond, which signifies underlying dysfunction that can be affecting your health. We will perform this analysis, find the “active” reflexes, then, based on that information, make specific nutritional recommendations to help the body return to a better state of health.
- Personalized Health Improvement Program - Depending on which reflexes are found active, we will test specific, proven nutritional formulas of the best-possible quality against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength. Once we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, we will develop a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule for you to follow. We use Designed Clinical Nutrition to help heal your reflexes and your body.
Designed Clinical Nutrition
In medicine, the doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or part. In Nutrition Response Testing we use Designed Clinical Nutrition to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
Designed Clinical Nutrition is not the same as taking over-the-counter vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are merely chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory, which contain only a fraction of the vitamin complex they are named for. While vitamin complexes, as found in whole foods in nature, are made up of many different parts that work together, synthetic vitamins are not “whole food”, and the body does not actually recognize these as anything even vaguely beneficial -- to put it mildly.
Unfortunately, because of this, over-the-counter vitamins can make you even more nutritionally deficient and can even create additional health problems.
What does Designed Clinical Nutrition mean?
Designed Clinical Nutrition is different. And it is exactly as it sounds:
Designed: especially prepared based on a specific plan
Clinical: results received from clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years
Nutrition: real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully
What is it and why does it work?
Our Designed Clinical Nutrition supplements are whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, which are concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make them work as nature intended.
Technology and experience guide everything we do.
Having been designed over the course of decades of clinical use, on tens-of-thousands of patients, and from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Response Testing is capable of evaluating and solving your health concerns.
A complete Nutrition Response Testing analysis can be done during each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layers of dysfunction, so these can also be addressed and corrected as well. In this way, each client gets a completely individualized handling, in the correct sequence for his or her body.
By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, you don’t “shot-gun” your diet or supplements. With a correctly done Nutrition Response Testing analysis, we can determine the correct food supplements for you, which are designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying that way.
