What Makes this Approach Unique and the Analysis

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 analysis
(the assessment of your body's current health status) and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).

The practitioner will do at least 13 separate and distinct tests:   testkit_foods_1_.jpg

  • Locked Indicator Muscle
  • ANS Regulation Challenge
  • Neurogenic Switching
  • Body Scan for Localized Areas of Stress
  • Prioritize Localized Areas
  • Check Prioritized Areas with "The 5 Most Common Stressors"
  • Check Prioritized Areas for specific nutritional support
  • Re-check remaining Localized Areas of Stress
  • Repeat Steps as needed
  • Digestive Evaluation
  • PSNS Allergy Check
  • Final ANS Regulation Check
  • Product doses

*Calibration as situations necessitates.

The analysis is done through 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, flow of energy and function of every organ system. Specifically the neurological reflexes are tested in response to your nervous system's ability to adapt to different stressors.  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.  However, we never use needles we only touch the accupressure contact points.

Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function. These reflexes indicate 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.

How Do We Do The Nutrition Response Testing Analysis?

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.

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
