What is Nutrition Response Testing?
In Nutrition Response Testing™ we do not diagnose or treat disease. Instead, the program consists of two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).
When it comes to maintaining good health, there are many innovative techniques used by healthcare professionals. One of the most popular methods among chiropractors is Nutrition Response Testing™, which involves analyzing a person’s muscle groups and acupressure points to determine if and where any weaknesses exist within the body. Once the analysis is completed, an individualized natural health improvement program is created to help the patient return to excellent health.
By testing the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure points, a chiropractor can determine how the flow of energy through a person’s body affects organs and bodily functions. Considered a very accurate measure of a person’s health, Nutrition Response Testing™ allows a person’s body to be monitored during each chiropractic visit to determine how well their program is working to meet their body’s needs.
Once weak areas in the body are discovered, for example a person’s liver or kidney reflexes, the focus switches to developing a personalized health improvement program to make those areas stronger.
This is accomplished by testing a variety of high-quality nutritional supplements with a patient to determine which ones will work and which will not. Once the proper nutrients are found, the health improvement program will be finalized to work at maximum efficiency. The supplements used in these programs are highly concentrated to ensure they offer the patient the best possible solution to their problem. They are made available in various forms, including tablets, capsules or powders.
Along with these supplements, a person may be asked to make certain changes to their current diet in order to achieve the best possible results. Many people fail to realize they have essentially eaten themselves into a state of poor health, and it is those people who are in the greatest need of NRT. For patients who want a natural method to restore themselves to good health, NRT offers an opportunity to change not only their dietary habits, but also their lives.
