Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is used to assess the health of different organ systems and identify nutritional deficiencies. NRT techniques include muscle testing and organ reflex points to gather essential information. After determining which organ system is causing the body’s dysfunction, nutrition response testing assists in identifying the ideal treatment needed to restore function. Read how Holistic Healing & Nutrition answers the question ‘What is Nutrition Response Testing?’ below.
What is Nutrition Response Testing™?
In order for you to begin the healing process we need to make sure you understand what Nutrition Response Testing™ (NRT) is right from the start. NRT is probably verydifferent from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you using NRT without an explanation you may find it strange or mysterious. We felt similarly when we first encountered it and, therefore, have studied it extensively to see if it really worked. We are happy we did because it has helped us greatly improve our own health and with NRT, we may be able to help you improve yours. It is important for you to understand Nutrition Response Testing™ because it is the foundation upon which we base our recommendations, and if you don’t understand it you may be less likely to follow through with our advice. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through with our advice, you won’t get well and if you are not going to get well, why begin in the first place? The good news is that by using NRT, most clients experience 90% or better improvement in their overall health.
In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the “disease” or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.). In Nutrition Response Testing™ we do not diagnose or treat disease but we also have two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition). The analysis is performed simply by using your body’s own muscle group in combination with acupressure points to determine where the underlying weakness is in the body and then, using the same technique we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in the analysis.
First the Analysis
The analysis is done through testing the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure 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, which is thousands of years old.
NRT 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. Since human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points has become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate.
Does your body need herbs, nutrition, pharmaceuticals, dietary modifications? Any recommendations made without the use of muscle testing are guesses at best. Nutrition Response Testing takes the guess work out of the equation so you can be provided with a treatment plan beneficial to your health the first time around.
