Nutrition Response Testing

Nutrition Response Testing


Nutrition Response Testing is a very precise and scientific method of determining imbalances in the body. It was designed through decades of experience on tens of thousands of patients and from many different types of health care practitioners. Since this procedure has so much research and clinical experience behind it, there is a great chance that it can too, help YOU!!  

When you are first analyzed using this method it will be very different from anything you have ever experienced.   

As a matter of fact, when we first saw this method of nutritional analysis performed, we were quite skeptical.  After seeing the amazing results that doctors who were utilizing this technique were getting, we knew we had to study it further to see if it was for real. We are very glad that we did because now we too are helping people like you get their health and their lives back. 

If you too want to drastically change your health through Nutrition Response Testing, it is important that you first understand how it works. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. To put it simply, if you don't follow through, you won't get well. And if you are not going to get well, why do it in the first place? A complete Nutrition Response Testing  analysis can be done on each patient on each subsequent visit, revealing the next layers of dysfunction so that they too can be corrected. This allows for each patient to get a completely individualized handling in the correct sequence for his/ her body. This is very much like opening a combination lock.  You must use the right numbers, in the right sequence, in the right direction and at the right time - then the lock opens. 

By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing , we can determine the correct program for you - designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying that way. 


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). Simply put, first we analyze your body to determine what imbalances exist then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis.  

The Analysis   

The analysis is done through testing the 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, which is thousands of years old. Nutrition Response Testing is the 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. 

Think about it... Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing the Nutrition Response Testing 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 the body needs and how well we are meeting that need. 

How do we access the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes in order to get this information?  If we were to hook you up to an electro-cardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during this procedure is that the electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. The graph could then be interpreted. 

During Nutrition Response Testing, instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing doctor contacts these points with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle strength of your extended arm. If the reflex being contacted is active, the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying dysfunction, which can be affecting your health. 

The "Personalized Health Improvement Program"

 Once we find an active reflex, the next step is to test specific, time-tested and proven, food form nutritional formulas against those weakened areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength. Then when we combine our clinical experience with the results we receive from this procedure, we create a nutritional program that is designed JUST FOR YOU!!  By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health. 

It's that simple! In Nutrition Response Testing we use "DESIGNED CLINICAL NUTRITION" to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself. 


First of all, Designed Clinical Nutrition is not "over-the-counter" vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not "whole food", and the body does not actually recognize these as anything even vaguely beneficial (to put it mildly). It is whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as the Creator intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body that are lacking as a result of nutrients you are simply not getting, or absorbing, in your current diet. These deficiencies may be due to your past eating habits, the poor quality of foods available in the grocery stores and restaurants and so on. 


Through an analysis of your body's reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement in your diet, in order to bring about balance and better health. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to "supplement" in your current diet. That's why they are called "food supplements". Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and in your routines, in order to bring about the best possible results.
