What is Nutrition Response Testing® ?
Nutrition Response Testing ® is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of illness and non-optimum health. Our clinically proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice you have experienced.
The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback needed. The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently, using all the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health changes.
What are we testing for?
The Nutrition Response Testing ® Practitioner is testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing. The nervous system regulates the body’s functions for each and every organ. The testing includes all organs, glands, joints, muscles and the entire body.
Nutrition Response Testing® analysis also tests for the 5 most common “stressors” that can hinder an individual’s response to natural
therapies as listed:
* Allergies to Major Food Groups
* Chemical Toxicity
* Heavy metal Toxicity (i.e., mercury, lead, aluminum)
* Chronic Immune Challenges
* Scars on the surface of the body (including tattoos)
These findings are analyzed and your personal Total Health Restoration Program will be designed.
How do we get the body’s “reflex” information?
Electrical energy flows exist between all parts and organs of the body. This is how your nervous system communicates and controls the body’s functions. These flows can become disrupted for a variety of reasons (i.e., physical or chemical stressors). This disruption in the nervous system’s healthy electrical flows is what we are testing.
Dr. Rich will do a full scan of your body and organs to determine exactly where the nervous system is being affected negatively by a non-optimum health condition. After the scan Dr. Rich will do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand while contacting a specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to your extended arm and send it to the stressed organ or body part. This will cause your extended arm to weaken and drop. This indicates an underlying stress or other dysfunction in that area of your body which may be adversely affecting your health.
Once the underlying cause of the dysfunction is corrected using proper nutrition, the “weak” muscle response in your arm will no longer occur. Since we directly use your body and nervous system for analysis, it is faster and often more accurate than lab tests. Additionally, there are no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, nasty needles or hefty lab fees to cover.
How soon will I see improvement?
Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in as little as 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are from those who most closely follow their recommended program.
How important is it to stick to my program?
Generally, chronic health problems do not suddenly develop overnight. They develop over years of improper nutrition, environmental toxins, medication use, and unhealthy lifestyle habits. All of which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that become chronic health problems. Therefore, the sooner and more thoroughly you get started on your program, the sooner you will start to see results.
Your Total Health Restoration Program will be designed to correct your specific health issues. While on the program, it is essential you make changes to the old habits and routines that contributed to your current condition. The Guided Nutrition Coaching portion of the program will provide nutrition and wellness education and help guide you in making the changes necessary to achieve maximum results. Full and dedicated commitment to the program is what will restore you to optimum health, vitality and well being.
What are my chances for recovery?
Nutrition Response Testing® has been successfully applied for nearly 2 decades to tens of thousands of patients with a wide variety of often chronic, long-term health conditions by hundreds of Doctors and Practitioners across the United States and Canada. In our clinic alone, we have helped many patients heal their bodies from chronic illness and non-optimum health conditions through Nutrition Response Testing®, Designed Clinical Nutrition and a Total Health Restoration Program. Your Initial Day 1 exam and evaluation will determine whether you are a “Nutrition Response Testing Case”. If you are, then in our experience, it is our belief that nothing else will help you more.
What happens next?
Fine Tuning: You will start the first phase of your customized program called the “Fine-Tuning” phase with weekly treatments for the first 6 weeks where you should see definite improvement in your health. You will then receive a re-exam to determine whether you are ready to move to the “Healing and Observation” phase.
Healing and Observation: In this phase your visits will move to once every two weeks for the next 12 weeks. During this phase more healing should take place and additional pieces of your total health picture will be revealed and addressed. Many times after these initial 12 visits a great deal of improvement has been made and you will see a significant reduction in negative symptoms and subsequent improvement in your overall health. Depending on your body’s rate of healing and your ability to make the changes necessary, you will either need another “Healing and Observation” phase or if all is going well you could be moved onto the “Maintenance Phase”
Maintenance Phase: This is where your visits will move out to monthly, bi-monthly or even quarterly. During this phase your commitment will deepen as you will have experienced many significant health improvements. We will continue to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed.
