Welcome to Nutrition Response Testing
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is very precise and scientific. It is important for you to understand exactly what NRT is before getting started, otherwise you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. And if you don't follow through, you won't get well. And if you are not going to get well, then why start in the first place.
In medical practice there are 2 key parts: the diagnosis and the treatment. In Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease - but we also have 2 key parts: the analysis 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 acupuncture points. Nutrition Response Testing is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
The second part is 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 nutrition 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 nutrition 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 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.
So what exactly is Designed Clinical Nutrition? In our practice we use whole food supplements, not "over the counter" vitamins. Over the counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not "whole food" and the body does not recognize these as anything even vaguely beneficial. Because they are not made from whole foods, "over the counter" vitamins lack the essential synergistic elements normally present in WHOLE FOODS. For more information on synthetic vitamins versus whole food supplements, call our office or e-mail us and we will be happy to send our newsletter to you.
Many people we see in our 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. The good news is that it is possible to reverse the process.
We wish you the best of luck in your quest to take back full responsibility for your health. Just remember to do it one step at a time, and we are here to help you in that quest. You can count on us to do everything in our power to help you achieve your health objectives, and to help you achieve a healthier, happier life.
Why is it helpful? It sure is nice to know how nutritionally balanced your body is, in advance. If we need to we can help your body get nutritionally balanced NOW.
Dr. Royal Lee (Founder of Standard Process Nutritional Food Company) made this statement many years ago, "disease is a normal reaction to an abnormal environment". Meaning if you have nutritional deficiencies your body cannot help itself to the fullest. So we invite you to call and schedule an appointment and see how you are, way in advance, or just to see how we can improve your present progress/condition.
And yes, it is also very inexpensive. The total cost is $60 or $35 for patients for the test and the analysis.
