Nutrition Response Testing
What is NRT?
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying cause of illness. it is probably different from other diagnostic appointments you've experienced. Through an analysis of your body’s organs/areas, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet, in order to bring about balance and better health. Each patient gets a completely individualized program.
Nutrition Response Testing has two parts: the analysis (the assessment of your body’s current health status) and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).
During analysis, we test the body’s autonomic nervous system and the flow of energy in every organ. Each area that gives a response represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body.
Your NRT practitioner makes contact with these areas using one hand. Then they will test the muscle of your extended arm using their other hand. If the organ/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 reveals the underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
By testing these organs/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.
The next step is to test specific, time-tested and proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the organ/areas back to full strength.
When we arrive at the correct mix of nutritional supplements, as indicated by your muscles response, and have worked out a personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have taken the first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the organ/area to be active in the first place. When you follow the program as precisely as possible, you are on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.
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, in order to bring about the best possible results.
An analysis of your active organs/areas will be performed on each follow-up visit. Often these follow up visits also reveal additional layers of dysfunction. These can then be addressed in the correct sequence for your 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 – then the lock opens easily.
Therefore, since every case is different, by following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, even the most complicated cases can be handled.
"I can't thank you enough for the impact you've had on my health and the health of my family.
By following the Program you've designed and tailored weekly for me, you've given me the ability to fix ailments that nothing and nobody else had been able to fix before. You've also armed me with enough understanding of nutrition and health such that I know how to help myself maintain my newfound health gains.
There were five key problems I noted during my initial screening 8 months ago. I'm simply astounded by the results I've achieved by following basic dietary recommendations you made for me and augmenting them with targeted whole food dietary supplements.
I thank you for these results: better sleep, higher and steadier energy levels, no more aches and pains in my hip/knee/ankle, and no more stomach pain or uncontrollable urges.
Remarkable results for such a wide range of issues."
