What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing, or NRT as we will often refer to it in our office, is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health.
This form of testing may be different than any other healing practice that you’ve previously experienced.
We will have questions for you before and during the testing, but the actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback we need. The body responds reliably and consistently, and this can open a door to a safe and lasting recovery.
“The body has the full potential to fully repair itself, when given the right nutrients.”
What are we testing for?
Through Nutritional Response Testing we test your body’s neurological reflexes. The testing includes organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc., and the reflexes are tested on the surface of the body. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing — as it is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ.
How do we get the body’s “reflex” information?
Energy flows between all parts and organs of the body and this energy flow can become disrupted for a variety of reasons. With this testing we discover the disruptions.
We do a full body scan to assess each reflex. The Nutrition Response Testing practitioner will do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand, and contact the specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm (which will weaken and cause it to drop). A drop in the arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction to that area which can be affecting your health.
Once the underlying stress is corrected, this weak muscle response will no longer occur.
We use the body directly for analysis (versus doing lab tests), which is faster and tends to be just as (if not more) accurate. There are also no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, needles, or laboratory fees to cover.
Following your consultation and testing, you will be given the results and a specific nutritional program to follow.
How soon will I see improvement?
Every case is different but we estimate 4–6 weeks for noticed improvement. The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional program.
Is it important to stick to the plan?
Chronic health problems generally do not develop overnight. They typically develop over a long period of time (often years) with improper diet (which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances) and environmental influences. All of which have gotten you into your current health condition.
The sooner and more thoroughly you implement your program, the sooner you will start to see results. While on your program, if you continue those same old habits and routines that contributed to your current condition, your body’s condition may not improve as you hope.
What happens next?
While you are on your own designed clinical nutrition program, you will continue on your health recovery process. We will continue to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed when additional layers show up. This procedure will assist you in attaining the maximum possible health benefits and get the real underlying health issues handled.
