How Does Nutrition Response Testing Work?
Nutrition Response Testing (Nutritional Muscle Reflex 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 is very precise and scientific. 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.
When I first saw this type of work being done, I had the same reaction: “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 sure am happy I did because it has greatly helped me, my family and so many of our patients attain greater health.
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.
That way you will be more likely to follow through and do what is needed in order to get well.
The analysis is done by testing neurological reflexes and specific acupuncture points on the body’s surface.
This analysis gives us an energy assessment of how well the organs and systems of the body are functioning.
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.
Since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, these reflexes and acupuncture points have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so reliable!
Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex corresponds to a specific organ, system, or function. It helps us determine the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on your overall health. Nutrition Response Testing also provides a system of monitoring your body at each visit. This has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
A custom designed nutrition program utilizes specific dietary recommendations and whole food concentrates in a tablet, capsule or powder. They are 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.
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 it is for sure due, in some large extent, to the lack of quality of the foods commercially available in grocery stores and most 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 one actually were deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, one 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 pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not “genuine replacement parts.” They lack many of the essential elements normally present in WHOLE foods. Most store bought vitamins (1) can cause other health problems; (2) create additional deficiencies and imbalances; or (3) simply don’t work because they do not contain all of the factors found in nature.

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 daily routines, in order to bring about the best possible results.
