Nutrition Response Testing

The Origin of Nutrition Response Testing

Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you using NRT without an explanation you may find it strange or mysterious. We felt similarly when we first encountered it and, therefore, have studied it extensively to see if it really worked. We are happy we did because it has helped us greatly improve our own health and with NRT, we may be able to help you improve yours. In medical practice there are two key parts: 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 relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.

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

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.

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. Our next step is to test specific high quality nutritional supplements against those weak areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength. 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 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. 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.

With a correctly done NRT analysis, we can determine the correct food supplements for you — designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying well. Many people we see in our practice 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. 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. Matt contacting your extended arm with one hand while contacting a specific reflex area with the other hand. If the reflex being tested is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm and directing it instead to the stressed organ or tissue.

This response denotes an underlying dysfunction present in that part of your body. When the dysfunction is corrected, the health issues it has caused can also be resolved. Matt will use the information gathered through the test to make recommendations for dietary changes and whole food supplementation, if necessary. Yes, it is completely safe for your entire family.

It can be performed on both children and adults, and involves no risky procedures or exposure to any potentially damaging chemicals. After the initial test, Dr. Matt may recommend that you add certain whole food supplements to your diet. After beginning a supplementation program, you will be re-tested periodically to assess how the supplements are affecting previously identified nutritional imbalances or deficiencies.

Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. Please ask about our audiotape: How are These Products Produced?

This product is produced by starting with a wide variety of carefully chosen organically grown vegetables, taking the water and fiber out using a vacuum, low heat process - without heating or cooking the vegetables, and then utilizing the concentrated food to make a bottle of Standard Process Catalyn Tablets. Standard Process nutrients are derived from plants grown on their own farms, in soil free of pesticides — and no chemicals are ever used.

The machinery involved in the processing of these products is made of glass and stainless steel only. The temperature used in processing harvested plants is never raised above the point of 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so that the active ingredients are not cooked; they remain active and alive, and have a very long shelf life. Your vitality and energy is derived from live food. Most foods today are all dead - or are not really foods at all - as in boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc.

Nutrition Response Testing was developed as a result of decades of clinical experience on tens of thousands of patients, and on patients from many different types of health care practitioners. This procedure is used to reveal deeper layers of dysfunction so these can also be addressed and corrected.

In this way, each patient gets a completely individualized program, 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 falls open.

By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing, we can determine the correct food supplements for you — designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying that way, without guesswork or cookbook solutions. Many people we see in our practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another.

The 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. So, yes, the good news is that it is possible to reverse this process! Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, year in and year out. 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.
