“All medicine comes down to is this: Find out what’s bugging you; get rid of it. Find out what you need; get it. The body does the rest.”
– Dr. Mark Hyman
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or poor health. With Nutrition Response Testing, we treat the root of the issue – not just the symptoms. This technique is a form of applied kinesiology or otherwise known as “muscle-testing”.
Health Conditions Improved Using Nutrition Response Testing:
- Weight Issues (Gain, Loss, Management)
- Insulin Resistance
- Diabetes Type I & II
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Chronic Fatigue/Lack of Energy
- ADHD/Behavioral Issues
- Heart Disease
- Mood Disorders
- Digestion/Absorption Abnormalities
- Metabolic Disorders
- Food Allergies/Food Sensitivities
- Thyroid Disorders
- Pre-Menstrual Issues
- And much much More!
How Does It Work?
Nutrition Response Testing, or muscle testing, allows your own body to communicate where imbalances are occurring and potential causes of these imbalances. Examples of imbalances in the body are weight loss/gain, inconsistent digestion, poor memory, mood swings, irregular sleep patterns and fatigue.
The Nutrition Response Testing procedure is performed lying down with your arm extended straight. If the tested reflex area on the body is under stress, the Autonomic Nervous System will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, meaning the arm will weaken and drop. When performing Nutrition Response Testing, a scan of the body and all of the reflex points are checked for the 5 most common stressors that can cause symptoms of poor health. These stressors include heavy chemical toxicity, hidden food allergies or sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity, immune challenges and scar interferences. When these stressors accumulate in our body over time, they can impair the function of major endocrine glands, metabolic glands and organs that are crucial to our health.
Once the underlying issues are discovered, the next step in Nutrition Response Testing is to see what nutrients your body may be lacking due to this toxin overload. When your body receives the proper nutrients in the forms of whole food essential minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, many imbalances in your body come back into balance. When this happens, symptoms lessen and, in most cases, disappear.
