NRT (Nutrition Response Testing)
What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing, or NRT as it is commonly known, is a way of analyzing the body’s nutritional needs by muscle testing your organs and then checking why there are problem-heavy metal toxicity, chemical toxicity, food allergies, immune challenges and/or scars.
In today’s modern society we are faced with many dietary dilemmas that, believe it or not, can adversely affect our health. Things such as food preservatives, meat from animals treated with antibiotics and fed chemical and denatured foods, pesticides, vegetables grown in depleted soil, other chemicals and steroids.
Additionally, it has been found that synthetic vitamins can actually cause nutritional deficiencies in other areas of your body. An example of this is Vitamin C. When you get Vitamin C in a store it is made from ascorbic acid, yet this Vitamin C is not complete and in order for it to work it must pull the rest of the Vitamin C complex from other areas in your body, further causing nutritional deficiencies.
NRT is used to test your body functions and through this sleep, digestive troubles, immune problems, etc. can be addressed with a unique nutritional program designed specifically for you.
How does it work?
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is very precise and scientific. The results we have been having with NRT are often in the 90% and better range.
The analysis is done through testing your body’s own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. 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.
NRT is a study of how the different points on the surface of your body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of your body.
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.
Each NRT reflex represents a specific organ, tissue or function and indicates the effect that energy or lack of energy, is having on your body. By testing the NRT 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 your 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 your body to get you to the next stage of improved health and wellness?
A 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, proven and the highest quality nutritional formulas against those areas to find which ones bring your reflexes back to strength. My clinical experience tells me when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused your reflex to be active in the first place. By following the program precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health. It’s that simple. In NRT we use Designed Clinical Nutrition to correct the cause of your problem, so that your body can regain the ability to correct itself.
After NRT, you may never be the same…and that’s a good thing!
