Welcome to Nutrition Response Testing
Did you hear about the nutrition work we do from someone who was very happy with his or her results?
However you heard, most of my new patients have been referred by other satisfied patients. People often hear about the great results their friends have experienced, but aren't ever really sure how exactly we get those great results. Here is a description of what “Nutrition Response Testing” is and how it creates changes.
Why Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if I were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing before explaining it to you, you might find it strange, or simply not believable. It is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before.
I completely understand this reaction because when I first saw this type of testing being done, I wondered how it could possibly work. As a result of my questioning, I studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it were a legitimate technique. I am really happy I did because it has helped me improve my health, and because of Nutrition Response Testing, I am able to help you improve your health.
If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is and what my recommendations are based on. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to get well. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through, you won’t get well. And if you are not going to get well, why do it in the first place?
The results we have with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% or better range. This only happens when patients are willing to follow the recommendations. I would like you to experience these results, so let's get started in our understanding of what we do.
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 personal 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 address what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
The analysis is done through testing the body’s own 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 is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body respond to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. We will refer to these point as Nutrition Response Testing reflexes.
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. Nutrition is given based on changes in these reflexes. Testing these reflexes is a way to monitor your body at each visit. This system has proven to be ext
remely accurate clinically and helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
This is a great way to determine what is needed and wanted by your body. This will get you to the next stage of improved health much faster than the traditional guess-and-check methods of other nutritional programs.
How exactly do we access the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes to get this information? If I were to hook you up to an electrocardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during this procedure? Electrical energy form 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. I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means. Instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing doctor contacts these points with his/her own hand. With his other hand, s/he will test the muscle strength 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 dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
Why is the person who referred you feeling better?
Because I did a Nutrition Response Testing analysis for him or her, I found the “active” reflexes, and then made specific nutritional recommendations to help his/her body return to a better state of health.
Why You Need Supplements That Include Whole Foods
Second the Personalized Health Improvement Program.
Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are active. Then what?
Our next step is to test specific, time - tested and proven, highest-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 towards correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. These nutritional deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, but it is for sure due, in some large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.
In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or 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.
Through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, I help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet to bring about balance and better health.
We make sure these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations are 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 might 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.
One example of a designed clinical nutrition supplement that we might use use is called “Catalyn”. This product
is produced by starting with a wide variety of carefully chosen organically grown vegetables, taking the water and fiber out using a vacuum and then utilizing the concentrated food to make a bottle of Standard Process Catalyn Tablets.
The key to this whole procedure is the way it is done, the “Standard Process” method.
Having been designed through decades of clinical use with tens of thousands of patients, and on patients working with many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Response Testing is capable of evaluating and solving your health concerns.
A complete Nutrition Response Testing analysis can be done on each patient on each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layers of dysfunction so these can also be addressed and corrected. In this way, each patient gets a completely individualized handling in the correct sequence for his or her body. Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time in order for the lock to fall open.
By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, you don’t “shot - gun” your diet or supplements. With a correctly done Nutrition Response Testing analysis, we can determine the correct food supplements for you - designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying that way.
