"Nutrition Response Testing is a noninvasive procedure that identifies chemical imbalances, and the reactions these imbalances have on your body. Using this holistic healing modality, I can help you overcome severe and chronic illness by restoring balance through gradual diet modification and proper, whole food supplementation. It's an amazing, and natural way to reduce pain, counter unknown allergic reactions, and improve your long-term health and well-being."*

What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) studies the different points on the body in relation to the flow of energy of each organ and function of the body, to determine an individual's overall state of health. The body contains a number of neurological reflex and acupressure points that correlate to a particular tissue, organ or function in the body. Using these points, which are based on ancient Chinese acupuncture, the Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner can determine the effect of energy, or lack of, on the body. By testing these points at each visit, it enables the practitioner to reveal layers of dysfunction to determine your needs and address them sequentially.
Like medical testing, Nutrition Response Testing involves two main parts: advanced analysis, to identify underlying imbalances in the body, and the personalized health improvement program, which includes clinical nutrition and supplementation to assist the body in healing. NRT is unlike any other healthcare practice in that it does not rely on drugs or medications that merely mask symptoms. Instead, it is based on the principle of getting to the cause of the issue to aid the body in the natural process of healing on a cellular level.
As an experienced practitioner, I believe that NRT is a noninvasive, safe, and effective way to improve overall health and well-being, and it can be used to address even the most chronic health issues.
The nervous system regulates and controls every muscle, gland, organ and joint of the entire body. It communicates this power by way of electrical energy information; however, sometimes this transmission can become distorted for a number of reasons. This change in transmission is what we are evaluating. Similar to how a physician uses an EKG machine to record the body's energy patterns internally to determine what's going on, an NRT practitioner can record the body's electrical energy, without the harmful effects of radiation.
Rather than placing electrodes on specific areas of the body to get a reading, I will use my hands to connect with these points. While connecting with these neurological reflexes, which are located on the surface of the skin, I can test the muscles of your extended arm to get a reading.
If the muscle being tested is stressed, I will know because there will be a reduction of energy in the extended arm, which will cause it to become stressed and drop. This drop signals to me that there is an underlying dysfunction in the body, which could be affecting your health. At this point, I can develop a personalized health improvement program and address your exact health issue with holistic healing through diet modification and whole food supplementation.
Some of the Severe and Chronic Illnesses Nutrition Response Testing Can Identify Include:
Customized and Personalized Care Based on Your Exact Medical Nutritional Needs
Once the most important step of identifying the underlying issue, imbalance or dysfunction is complete, I can create a nutritional support and lifestyle guidance program to help restore your health. Sometimes your diet, or food sensitivities, can contribute to your ill-health. Imbalances or nutritional deficiencies can lead to a weakening in immunity and resistance or the inability to cope with environmental stresses.
The nutritional healing component of NRT consists of a healthy diet and whole food nutritional supplements to further enhance that diet. These recommendations vary from patient to patient and can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to realize results. The goal of the program is to fortify, detox and restore balance to the patient's body in the most natural way possible. I will test specific high-quality nutritional supplements to find which ones regain strength back to your weakened areas. This process may take a little time, but it probably took your body a long time to get out of balance too. Once we determine the proper diet and supplement variation that's right for you, you will begin to feel and function better. As your body heals, I will adjust your program accordingly. At this time, we will also determine your rate of improvement and how long it will take for full recovery.
I incorporate various supplements, including tablet, capsule, and powdered form, into my program depending on your individual needs. My years of clinical experience guide my recommendation on which nutritional supplements to use. These supplements help speed recovery and are just as important as the recommended dietary changes. The supplements that I use are of the highest quality I can find. They are tried and proven formulas derived from whole foods and other natural ingredients, for best results, and they are sourced from companies that follow strict compliance and regulatory standards.
When you think about it, your body's tissues, cells, and organs undergo repair each day. The ability of each to repair itself properly depends on upon the nutrients available to maintain its health. NRT is designed to help bring about the desired results.
Using the principles of NRT, I believe that I can work with you to improve your health. Once that is achieved, you'll be on your way to a happier, healthier life. If you want to take control of your condition and restore your health, please contact me today for a free consultation.
