Nutrition Response Testing
If you are like most people who come to us for help, then most likely:
1.) You have one or more health conditions that have become chronic
2.) You have probably tried conventional medicine or even alternative practitioners and did not get the results you hoped for.
3.) These conditions are impacting your personal life, your relationships with your spouse or children, your career or job performance, and/or your personal finances.
4.) You know that, as time goes by, these conditions are not going to get better and will probably continue to worsen unless you change what you are doing and do something really effective about it.
If this describes you and you are ready to make a real demand for improvement that will put you back in charge of your own health, then you have come to the right place.
If you are a Nutrition Response Testing case and you follow our recommendations to the letter, then there is high hope that you will receive the help you need to restore your health.
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, and the way I practice it, is very precise. However, if I 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 may have experienced before.
I can understand this because when I first saw this type of work being done, my first reaction was “Hmm, what is this strange stuff?” No one was more skeptical than I was. As a result, I studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real. And I am sure happy I did because it was what improved my health and the health of many of my patients.
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 do it in the first place?
The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% and better range. But it is not a passive program where I give you pills and send you on your way to continue the same lifestyle that contributed to your illnesses in the first place. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing is right from the start.
What Makes this Approach Unique?
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 (the assessment of your body’s current health status) and the personalized 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 handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
First the Analysis.
The analysis is done through testing the body’s own neurological reflexes and certain acupuncture points. Nutrition Response Testing analyzes the different points and areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each organ and many glands. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.
Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate!
Think About that!
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 the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes, 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.
Doesn’t this sound like something you would want for yourself in order to predict, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to get you to the next stage of improved health?
How Do We Do The Nutrition Response Testing Analysis?
If I 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 this 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. I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.
Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing: Instead of connecting electrodes to the reflex areas being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with their own hand. With the other hand, 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 can be affecting your health.
Why is the Person Who Referred You Feeling Better?
Because we did a Nutrition Response Testing analysis for him or her, we found the “active” reflexes, and then made specific nutritional recommendations to help the body return to an improved state of health. Most importantly, the person is following through on our recommendations.
We are prepared to do the exact same thing for you now. However, the best is yet to come.
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-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
Our clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. 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.
What is a Designed Clinical Nutrition?
“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).
It is concentrated, whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, prepared using a unique manufacturing process 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 during your analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, but also to a large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today.
An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex. A “complex” is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic vitamin A does not contain the whole “Vitamin A Complex” found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices.
If a person was deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, they would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex – not from chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the Vitamin A Complex that has erroneously been labeled as “Vitamin A.”
Designed Clinical Nutrition is not ‘over-the-counter’ vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharma-ceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. Because they are not made from whole foods, “over-the-counter” vitamins are not “genuine replacement parts” as they lack many of the essential elements normally present in WHOLE foods.
Vitamins only need to have a small percentage of their actual content to be derived from natural sources to be labeled “natural”. If they are not derived from whole foods, they often make you even more deficient and nutritionally out-of-balance. They can create other health problems because they do not contain all of the co-factors found in nature that make the vitamins work. In other words, your body needs to make up the difference by providing the co-factors needed to process that synthetic “vitamin”. In the long run you will end up with the very deficiency you were trying to avoid.
So-called “scientific research,” done with these shoddy substitutes, repeatedly “proves” that vitamins don’t do much good for anyone! Can you imagine who pays for these “researches”?
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 balance and better 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 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.
How are These Products Produced?
One example of a designed clinical nutrition supplement that we 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, low heat process – without heating or cooking the vegetables, 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, using the “Standard Process” method:
Standard Process nutrients are derived from plants grown on their own farms, in soil free of pesticides – and no chemicals are ever used. Ph.D.’s check the soil before the seeds are sown, to make sure of the fertility of the soil – and even the weeding is done by hand.
The machinery involved in the processing of these products is made of glass and stainless steel only and the temperature used in processing harvested plants is never raised above the point of 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so that the active ingredients are not cooked; they remain active and alive, and have a very long shelf life.
Your vitality and energy are derived from live food. Most foods today are all dead – or are not really foods at all – as in boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc. You can readily understand the difference between dead, devitalized pseudo-foods, with the synthetic or isolated vitamins on the one hand, and “Designed Clinical Nutrition” and a diet of real foods, on the other.
There is a Great Deal of Technology and Know-How Behind What We Do.
Having been designed through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of patients, and on patients from 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 subsequent visit. Often these reveal additional layers of dysfunction. These can then be addressed in the correct sequence for your body.
Each patient gets a completely individualized program.
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 falls open.
Therefore, since very case is different, by following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, even the most complicated cases can be handled.
Is it Possible to Restore Your Health?
Many people that I see in my 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 (chemical, microscopic, or otherwise).
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 a cellular level.
Nutrition Response Testing tells you when and what to use to bring about the desired result. The power of therapeutic nutrition is simply amazing.
