2. Nutrition Response Testing™
In order for you to begin the healing process I need to make sure you understand what Nutrition Response Testing™ (NRT) is right from the start. NRT is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific. NRT has personally help to improve my health. I may be able to help you improve yours. It is important for you to understand Nutrition Response Testing™ because it is the foundation upon which we base our recommendations, and if you don’t understand it you may be less likely to follow through with our advice. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through with my advice, you won’t get well and if you are not going to get well, why begin in the first place? The good news is that by using NRT, most clients experience 90% or better improvement in their overall health.
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).
The analysis is performed simply by using your body’s own muscle group in combination with acupuncture points to determine where the underlying weakness is in the body and then, using the same technique we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in the analysis.
First the Analysis
The analysis is done through testing the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure 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.
NRT is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body (Dermatones ) relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. The utilization of these reflexes and specific points has become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate.
Think About It
Each NRT 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 these reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that helps us identify what your needs and how well we are meeting those needs. Doesn’t this sound like something you would want for yourself in order to predict, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to help you reach the next stage of optimal health?
How Do I Access the Nutrition Response Testing™ Reflexes in Order to Get This Information?
If we were to hook you up to an EKG machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during that procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the EKG record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.
In Nutrition Response Testing™, instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the practitioner contacts these points with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscles 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 stress or dysfunction, which may be affecting your health.
Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are active, then what?
Our next step is to test specific high quality organic nutritional supplements against those weak areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
Decades of clinical experience tell us that when I have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when I work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, I have accomplished the most important first step of supporting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. 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™ I use designed clinical nutrition to address the causes of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to heal and support itself.
There is a Great Deal of Technology and Know-How Behind What I Do
Having been designed through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of clients, and on clients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Response Testing™ is capable of evaluating and possibly solving your health concerns.
A complete NRT analysis can be done on each client on each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layers of dysfunction so these can also be addressed and supported.
In this way, each client gets completely individualized handling in the correct sequence for his or her body.
Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time – then the lock opens.
By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing™, you don’t “shot-gun” your diet or supplements. With a correctly done NRT analysis, I can determine the correct food supplements for you – designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying well.
1. Through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balanced and improved health.
2. I make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to “supplement” your current diet. That’s why they are called “food supplements.”
3. Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet & eating habits and in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results.
Many people have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another. Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (chemical, microscopic, or otherwise). The good news is that it may be possible to reverse the process!
Is It Possible to Restore Your Health?
What could be more natural? What could be more correct? Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. The health of each organ is dependent on making the correct nutrients available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at a cellular level.
Designed Clinical Nutrition provides the right basic materials.
Nutrition Response Testing™ tells you when and what to use to bring about the desired results. With this understanding of what I do, I feel you can comprehend how I am able to work with you to help you more effectively improve your health. Once that is achieved, do you see how you might be able to use this approach to stay well?
Now you have the complete 1-2-3 package. You know:
- What I do
- How and why I do it
- What you need to do to gain the potential of restoring your health and staying healthy.
It is important to remember that in the end you are the one responsible for your own condition and with my guidance, I feel that – if you are a Nutrition Response Testing™ case – your chances of greatly improving your health can be as high as 90%, or better. In my experience, if our analysis indicates that you are not a Nutrition Response Testing™ / nutritional case, then in all probability, while a nutritional program may give you some benefit, it may not give you the maximum results you desire.
If my analysis confirms that you are a Nutrition Response Testing™/ Designed Clinical Nutrition case, then, in my experience, nothing else may ever compare to what you may achieve by using NRT and Designed Clinical Nutrition.
We commend you in taking steps to improve your health because you are worth it! Just remember to do it one step at a time and that I am here to guide you in.
3. Auriculotherapy –
Auriculotherapy is a health care procedure in which stimulation of the auricle of the external ear is utilized for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other parts of the body. It is also known as ear acupuncture or auricular acupuncture when the stimulation is achieved by the insertion of acupuncture needles. The term auriculotherapy often refers to electrical stimulation of the surface of ear reflex points. Specific points on the ear can also be stimulated by manual pressure, referred to as auricular acupressure or ear reflexology. Acupuncture points on the ear can be stimulated with lasers, magnets, and ear pellets.
While originally based upon the ancient Chinese practices of acupuncture, the somatotopic correspondence of specific parts of the body to specific parts of the ear was first developed in France. It is this integrated system of Chinese and Western practices of auricular acupuncture which is presented herein.
THE EAR/BODY MAP
There are no “meridians” that cross the ear. There is however a rich network of nerve endings which travel from the skin of the ear through the cranial and cervical nerve roots and then back into the brain. The ear to brain connection is the shortest and most direct of any of the body’s neurological “micro-systems” (a small representation of the whole body’s anatomy).
Auriculotherapy is the only direct micro-system that can be used for both diagnosis and treatment. Iridology is the only other direct micro-system, but this can only be used for diagnosis. All other Microsystems such as foot reflexology and Acupuncture are indirect.
An Auriculotherapy treatment can take just minutes. You will be lying on your side or back with a comfortable pillow to support your neck. The practitioner will be running a small battery-powered micro-current device around your ear. You will hear a quiet, high-pitch noise coming from the Stim. When the practitioner treats an active reflex point that he or she has located, you may feel a sensation similar to a pulse or a pin-prick. This sensation will only last 30–60 seconds for each point treated.
Micro-current + Laser is used in preference to needles, acupressure, laser and other forms of current (e.g. TENS), as this best matches the natural frequencies of the nerves being treated. Hence Micro-current is attempting to normalize abnormal nerve activities. The advanced design of the instrument we utilize has the additional advantage of being able to locate the active reflex points, as well as treat them.
There are no known contraindications or dangers of Auriculotherapy. (For ultra-safety we do not recommend this treatment if you have a pacemaker or are in the first trimester of pregnancy.) The number and regularity of Auriculotherapy sessions will depend on the severity and complexity of the health problems being treated and the severity and number of active reflex points located upon examination.
