Nutrition Response Testing is a method that helps a practitioner gather information about the function of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and its specific components, including the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Both parts of the ANS are responsible for healthy functioning of the body’s different systems, including our ability to heal. It is when there is an imbalance in these systems that we experience disease in the body.
These blockages can show up as anything from unexplained chronic pain or diabetes to things as common as allergies or migraines. Often these type of symptoms can be the body’s way of signaling it’s need for balance.
These imbalances can be corrected safely, naturally and effectively by accessing the ANS and making nutritional recommendations and creating a whole-food supplement plan just for you.
It is our opinion that food is medicine!
Nutrition Response Testing looks for five common stressors that can challenge the body from healing. These tests include:
and metal challenges.
The nutritional response testing is painless and is done with the practitioner lightly pressing on acupuncture points or reflexes on the body associated with specific organs or glands, while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group, usually the bicep for muscle weakness. Based on the findings during the response test, the practitioner will recommend whole-food supplements and/or herbs as well as dietary and lifestyle changes. Occasionally acupuncture or abdominal massage may be suggested as a supplemental treatment.
The result is a personalized health program that addresses your own body's imbalances and corrects its ability to properly function.
The goal is to help your body restore its ability to heal itself and to help you start feeling good again - safely, naturally and effectively.
