Nutrition Response Testing

Welcome to Nutrition Response Testing™

  • Most of our new patients have been referred to us by other satisfied patients.
  • Did you hear about us from someone who was very happy with their results?
  • However you heard about us, you probably want to know what “Nutrition Response Testing” is - and what we do.



What is Nutrition Response Testing™?

Nutrition Response Testing™ is very precise and scientific. However, if I were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing before it was explained to you, you might find it strange, or simply not believable – only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before.

I can completely understand that because when I first saw this type of work being done, my first reaction was “Hmm, what is this strange stuff?” No one was more skeptical than I was. As a result, I studied Nutrition Response Testing™ extensively to see if it was for real. And I am sure happy I did because it has helped me improve my health, and because of Nutrition Response Testing™, we are here and are able to help you improve your health.

Quite frankly, if you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing™ is, and what our recommendations are based on.

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?

The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing™ are often in the 90% and better range. The only reason we are here is to help you get well. We have no other reason for being here and, hopefully, you are here for that same reason. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing™ is right from the start.

Let’s Get Started

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 do an analysis, and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.


First the Analysis

The analysis is done through testing the body’s own 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.

Nutrition Response Testing™ is a 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.

Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate!

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.

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 get you to the next stage of improved health?

How do we access the Nutrition Response Testing™ reflexes in order to get this information?

If I were to hook you up to an electrocardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right?


What is actually happening during this procedure?

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. I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.

Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing. Instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these points with his/her own hand. With his 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.

Why is the person who referred you feeling better?

Because we did a Nutrition Response Testing analysis for him or her, we found the “active” reflexes, and then made specific nutritional recommendations to help the body return to a better state of health.

We are prepared to do the exact same thing for you now. Isn’t that exciting?

However, the best is yet to come...

Designed Clinical Nutrition

What Exactly Is Designed Clinical Nutrition?

“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).

This begins our “Personalized Health Improvement Program” step. Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are testing as weakened, or in a nutritionally deficient state. Then what? This is where Designed Clinical Nutrition is put to work to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.  (In traditional medicine, this is where the medical practitioner makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or part. But what about the underlying cause?)

We now begin testing your body with specific, time-tested and proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which specific nutrition bring the reflexes back to strength.

Our decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step in correcting 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!

Whole Food Supplements vs. Over the Counter

Over the Counter Supplements

Vitamins that are being used all over today generally only need to have a small percentage of their actual content derived from natural sources to be labeled “natural”. If they are not derived from whole foods, they often make you even more deficient and nutritionally out-of-balance. They can create other health problems because they do not contain all of the co-factors found in nature that make the vitamins work.

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). Because they are not made from whole foods, “over-the-counter” vitamins lack the essential synergistic elements normally present in WHOLE foods.


Whole Food Supplements

An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex.
A “complex” is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic vitamin A does not contain the whole “Vitamin A Complex” found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices.

If one actually were deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, one would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex - not from chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the Vitamin A Complex that has erroneously been labeled as “Vitamin A.”

Whole Food Supplements are real, whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder that has been 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, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing reflexes that were found on your individual Nutrition Response Testing analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
