NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING™?
Nutrition Response Testing® is very precise and scientific. However, if you were to be analyzed 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....
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive tool we use to help you determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if we were to use this tool 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.
We understand this because when we first saw this type of work being done, our first reaction was, "What is this strange stuff?" No one was more skeptical than we were. As a result, we studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real. We were so happy we did, because it has greatly helped us improve our health and the health of so many clients.
What Makes This Approach Unique?
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 body scan (your body telling us its current health status) and the personalized health improvement system (using designed nutrition).
Simply put, first we do a body scan, and then we help you design a natural health improvement program to help you handle your body's condition.
First, the Session
The session is done through testing the body's own neurological reflexes and certain acupuncture points.
Nutrition Response Testing examines 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.
Interestingly, because human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points have become extremely useful in our business because they are so accurate.
Think About It
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 tool to help you monitor your body at each session, a tool that has proven to be extremely accurate, and that helps you identify exactly what the body needs and how well you are meeting that need.
Doesn't that 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?
How Do We Do The Nutrition Response Testing Body Scan?
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 body scan? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record, the energy pattern, in the form of a graph or chart. We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.
Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing: instead of connecting electrodes to the reflex areas being tested, with Nutrition Response Testing we contact these areas being tested, with Nutrition Response Testing we contact these areas with either your hand or our own. With the other hand, we 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.
"Personalized Health Improvement"
Let's say the liver or kidney reflexes are active. Then what?
The next step for you is to determine the specific, highest possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
Decades of experience tell us that when you have found the correct nutritional supplements as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, you have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying stress that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. By following the system as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.
It's that simple!
In medicine, the medical professional 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 help you to discover for yourself exactly what nutrition you need to support your body so that it can regain the ability to correct itself. This is what is called " Designed Clinical Nutrition."
What is "Designed Clinical Nutrition?"
Designed Clinical Nutrition: is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of clients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).
It is concentrated, whole food in a tablet, capsule, or powder, prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as nature intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when checked against the active reflexes that you found when we applied the Nutrition Response Testing tool. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet for whatever reason.
Many people have nutritional deficiencies because of past personal eating habits. However, a large extent is due to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today.
Designed Clinical Nutrition is not "over-the-counter" vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. Because they are not made from whole foods, over-the-counter vitamins are not "genuine replacement parts" as they lack many of the essential elements normally present in WHOLE foods. Vitamins that are being used all over today generally only need to have a small percentage of their actual content derived from natural sources to be labeled "natural." If they are not derived from whole foods, they often make a person even more deficient and nutritionally out-of-balance. they can create other health problems because they do not contain all of the co-factors found in nature that make the vitamin work.
- Through the use of Nutrition Response Testing, you will discover your body's active reflexes. Then, we help you determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balance and better health (which improves your quality of life).
- We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to "supplement" your current diet. That's why they are called "food supplements".
- You will learn how your body works and what foods it needs to achieve your health goals. As you make lifestyle changes and better food choices for yourself, you will find that you are now back in control of your health and bringing about the best possible results.
