What is Nutrition Response Testing?

One of the primary ways we assist patients in achieving better health is through Nutrition Response Testing (NRT). It is a precise, non-invasive method using the body’s natural reflexes to analyze organs and systems of the body. Reflex analysis techniques, such as NRT, rely on two of the body’s communication systems: the nervous system and the ancient Chinese acupuncture meridian system.


The nervous system provides a reflex. (A reflex is a weak or strong muscle response to a stimulus). If the practitioner puts pressure on a muscle and it remains strong, this indicates that the point is functioning properly. If the muscle is weak, this shows that there is an issue that needs to be addressed.


The Chinese meridian system provides non-invasive access to organs, tissues, glands, and all systems of the body. This works because of the electromagnetic fields that run through and around our bodies. These fields have either a positive or negative influence on each other. This electromagnetic influence is what the testing uses.


What is Involved in a Nutrition Response Testing Visit

NRT begins with an analysis using muscle testing. Each point tested relates to a specific organ or function within the body. In the testing, the practitioner is looking for weakened organs or systems; he is also looking for specific stressors such as food sensitivities, immune challenges, scars, metals, and chemicals in the body which may prevent the body from healing. These reflexes are able to show a weakness in the body before there is actual manifestation of disease through symptoms.


Based on the results of the testing, the NRT practitioner will make recommendations for dietary/lifestyle modifications. These can include whole food supplements, herbs, or homeopathic remedies to bring the body back to balance. By using reflex testing, each issue is dealt with as the body reveals it is ready to tackle the issue.


If you are suffering from allergies, headaches, fatigue or even a chronic health complication such as diabetes or heart disease, chances are you could benefit from Nutrition Response Testing (NRT). Call us for a free consultation at 864-963-9304.
