Nutrition Response Testing
Nutrition Response Testing
If you are like most people who come to us for help, then most likely:
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. The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% and better range.
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.
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.
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 and every organ. 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!
The “Personalized Health Improvement Program”
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 decades of 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.
It’s that simple!
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 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).
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.
Standard Process Products
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:
A. 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.
B. The machinery involved in the processing of these products is made of glass and stainless steel only.
C. 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 is 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.
