Nutrition Response Testing
Detecting the Cause of Your Problem
When your body isn’t in an optimal state of health, you can feel it. Stressors are all around us, and we often don’t have the healthiest diets; we’re also exposed to many chemicals and heavy metals on a daily basis. You may have food intolerances, immune challenges, scarring or elevated toxicity levels. Though you may try to eat a healthy diet, today’s food supply still lacks vitamins, minerals and enzymes that the body needs. You might have even received a diagnosis and had medications suggested to you by a doctor.
What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill 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 analyze you 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 have used or experienced.
There are two parts to Nutrition Response Testing: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using Designed Clinical Nutrition). Simply put, you are first analyzed and then a nutritional program is designed to help you handle what is found in the analysis.The analysis is done through testing the body's neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. 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 ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.
If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is and what our recommendations are based on. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. If you don't follow through, you won't get well. And if you are not going to get well, why would you do it in the first place?
What Makes This Approach Unique?
In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis and the treatment. 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 naturopathic health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
The analysis is done through testing the body's nervous system through neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. 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 ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.
Nutrition Response Testing analyzes 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 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 these reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has been proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and helps us identify what your needs and how well we are meeting those needs.
Doesn't that sound like something you want for yourself in order to predict, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to get to the next stage of improved health?
The Body Has the Potential to Fully Repair Itself,
When Given the Right Nutrients.
How do we access the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes in order to get this information?
If we were to hook you up to an electro-cardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right?
What is actually happening during that procedure? 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.
In Nutrition Response Testing, instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the practitioner contacts these 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.
What Exactly is Designed Clinical Nutrition?
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).
In most cases it is concentrated, 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.
Is it Possible to Restore Your Health?
Many people we see in out practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another. The deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (food, immune, chemical or otherwise).
So, YES, the good news is that it is possible to reverse the process!
What could be more natural? What could be more correct? Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. The health of each organ is dependent on making the correct nutrients available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at the cellular level.
Designed Clinical Nutrition provides the right basic nutrients. Nutrition Response Testing tells you when and what to use to bring about the desired result.
With this understanding of what we do, can you see how we might be able to help you do something effective to get yourself well?
And once that is achieved, do you see how you might be able to use this approach to get yourself well?

NOW THE GOOD NEWS
A personal nutrition plan, designed just for you, evaluates the potential of success!
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.
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."
Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits and in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results
