WHAT IS NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING (NRT)?
NRT’s analysis is done through testing the body’s nervous system, analyzing different organs/areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each organ and function of the body.This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ, so it is very scientifically sound. By testing these organs/areas, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically. It helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting those needs.
How does NRT actually work?
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if we were to analyze you using NRT before it was explained, you might find it strange or simply not believable–only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. If we were to hook you up to an electro-cardiograph machine and take a reading, that would seem natural and scientifically valid, correct? What is actually happening during an EKG procedure is very similar to what is happening during an NRT analysis. In an EKG, electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires of the machine, and this electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. An educated practitioner can then study this graph and interpret what the results indicate about your heart health. During an NRT assessment, instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, the NRT practitioner contacts each of these areas with his or her own hand. With the other hand, he or she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area 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. Just as the EKG machine is monitoring the heart,
The Technology & Research of NRT
Nutrition Response Testing is the result of decades of clinical application and research, on tens of thousands of patients. The patients being tested have a broad range of health complications. You can be assured that if you are a Nutrition Response Testing case*, that this testing is capable of evaluating and solving your health concerns. Nutrition Response Testing is a technology used to identify precisely where a body is in need and distinguish what nutrition uniquely balances this need. The results are amazingly accurate because the main analysis comes from the body communicating its own needs. This program’s success stems from 3 components: muscle testing, nutrition, and education. The communication tool used is a basic muscle test–where a muscle either tests strong–a ‘lock’, or it goes weak–an ‘unlock.’ The body will communicate exactly where it is stressed (an unlock), where to begin supporting the body, and what nutrition would best accomplish this. * In approximately 5% of cases, NRT is not the right solution for an individual’s health concerns. We will be able to identify whether you are a good candidate for NRT at your first appointment, and if we don’t believe that we can help you, we will let you know right away.
