What is the Nutrition Response Testing Process?

In Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease. There are two parts to our process:

  1. The analysis - the assessment of your body's current health status.

  2. The personalized health improvement program - using designed clinical nutrition.

The Analysis

The analysis is done through testing the body's nervous system.

Nutrition Response Testing analyzes different areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in every organ and function of the body.

This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate all of the functions in your body.

Each area that gives a response represents a specific organ, tissue, or function and indicates the effect that energy, or lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing these organs and areas, 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 is the Nutrition Response Testing Analysis Done?

If we were to analyze the function of your heart, you would not be surprised at all to be hooked up to electrodes that are connected to an EKG machine. Those electrodes would be measuring the energy of the heart. Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with her own hand. With her other hand, she will test the muscle of your extended arm.

If the organ or area 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.

The Personalized Health Improvement Program

Let's say the liver or kidney areas are active. Then what? Our next step is to test specific nutritional formulas of the highest quality that have stood the test of time and are proven to bring the organ or areas back to strength.

Decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, we can devise a clinically designed program for your body.

This will be a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule. We have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the organ or area 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 medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the "offending" organ or malfunctioning 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.

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 patients over m

any years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).

There is a Great Deal of Technology and Know-How Behind What We Do.

  1. Through an analysis of your body's organs/areas, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet to bring about a balance and better health.

  2. 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're called "food supplements."

  3. Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and in your routines, to bring about the best possible results.

Having been designed through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of patients, and on patients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that using Nutrition Response Testing we are able to evaluate your body's nutritional needs and devise a program to help your body heal itself.
