We are now happy to be able to provide to you Nutrition Response Testing! These nutrition services can be done in the comfort of your own home, just like our massage services! We also offer these services in our studio, if that is preferred. Please take a moment and find out for yourself what Nutrition Response Testing is, below. Feel free to contact us and let us know of any questions you may have!
What is Nutrition Response Testing™?
The reason we are here is to help you get well. That is why we want to make sure you understand what Nutrition Response Testing™ (NRT) is. NRT is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you using NRT without an explanation you may find it strange or mysterious. We felt similarly when we first encountered it and, therefore, have studied it extensively to see if it really worked. We are happy we did because it has helped us greatly improve our own health and with NRT, we may be able to help you improve yours. It is important for you to understand Nutrition Response Testing™ because it is the foundation upon which we base our recommendations, and if you don’t understand it you may be less likely to follow through with our advice. The good news is that by using NRT, most clients experience 90% or better improvement in their overall health.
Let’s Get Started
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).
Simply put, first we do an analysis and then 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 acupuncture points. 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.
Each NRT 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 these reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that helps us identify what your needs and how well we are meeting those needs.
How Do We Access the Nutrition Response Testing™ Reflexes
in Order to Get This Information?
In Nutrition Response Testing™, the practitioner contacts these acupressure points with his/her 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 may be affecting your health.
The Second Part - the "Personalized Health Improvement Program”
Our next step is to test specific high quality nutritional formulas 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.
What Exactly is Designed Clinical Nutrition?
First of all, 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. They are not “whole food,” and the body does not actually recognize these as anything even vaguely beneficial (to put it mildly). Because they are not made from whole foods, over-the-counter vitamins lack the essential synergistic elements normally present in WHOLE foods.
Vitamins that are commonly being used 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 you 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 vitamins work properly.
“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results received 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 whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system 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 tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing™ reflexes that were found on your individual analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet. These deficiencies may be a result of your past personal eating habits and routines, and to a large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores and restaurants today.
How Are These Products Produced?
The key to this whole procedure is the way it is done, using this method:
A. The nutrients you will be taking are derived from plants grown on privately owned farms, in soil free of pesticides – no chemicals are ever used. Ph.D.’s check the soil before the seeds are sown, to make sure of the fertility of the soil – and even the weeding is done by hand.
B. The machinery involved in the processing of these products is made exclusively of glass and stainless steel.
C. The temperature used in processing harvested plants is never raised above the point of 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so that the active ingredients are not cooked; they remain active and alive and have a very long shelf life.
Your vitality and energy is derived from live food. Most foods today are dead or are not really foods at all - as in boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc. You can readily understand the difference between dead, devitalized pseudo-foods, with the synthetic or isolated vitamins on the one hand and “Designed Clinical Nutrition” and a diet of real foods on the other.
1. Through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the
exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balanced and improved health.
2. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, liquids or in powdered form to “supplement” your current diet. That’s why they are called “food supplements”.
3. Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet & eating habits and in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results.
Many people we see in our practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another. Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (chemical, microscopic, or otherwise).
The good news is that it may be possible to reverse the process!
We wish you the best of luck in your quest to take back your health. Just remember to do it one step at a time and that we are here to guide you in that quest.
