Nutritional Response Testing
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health. Through Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease, but we determine your healing process through two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement with supplementation.
The analysis is done through testing the body’s autonomic nervous system. NRT analyzes different areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ.
Each area that gives a response 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 organs/areas, 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.
Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, as in an EKG, the NRT practitioner contacts these areas with her own hand. With the other hand, she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area 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 can be affecting your health.
Our next step is to test specific, proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas to find which ones bring the organ/areas back to strength.
Nutritional Response Tests, dietary guidance, holistic healing with food
When we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health. We 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.” Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and in your routines, in order to bring about the best possible results.
In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or malfunctioning part. In NRT, Empowered Chiropractic use designed clinical nutrition to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
