A Note About Testing
You may find that our methods are different from what you have experienced in the past. Traditional medicine looks at the symptoms you are experiencing and then diagnoses and treats the symptoms with drugs or surgery to correct the problem. With Nutrition Response Testing, we do not diagnose or treat disease. We will analyze your body, looking for any inefficiently working organs or body systems that may be causing your symptoms (or which may lead to problems in the future). We will then design an individualized natural health improvement program based on the results of our testing.
Understanding Reflex Testing
How the reflex testing works can be illustrated by understanding how our bodies respond to hypothermia. If, for example, you were to fall into an icy river, your body would immediately do everything necessary to protect your vital organs at the expense of your extremities. (You can live without an arm, but not without a beating heart.) The blood would be sent to your heart and internal organs and away from your arms and legs, making your extremities weaker. When you became warm again, the blood would again circulate normally, returning the blood flow and corresponding strength to your arms and legs. Reflex testing works according to this same concept. When your internal organs are strong, your body can allow energy to flow to your extremities. When stress is applied to a weakened organ, the arm will become weaker as the body rushes to protect the organs.
