What is Nutrition 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. NRT utilizes muscle testing derived from Applied Kinesiology developed by Dr. George Goodheart, as well as other methods from German, Chinese, American, and Japanese medicine.
The analysis is done by testing the body’s autonomic nervous system through its reflexes. Not like a knee reflex, but like a Chinese medicine acupuncture point. This allows us to find out which area of the body is not functioning well. This also allows us to know what product to use to help the person – not pharmaceutical drugs with side effects, but whole food nutrition, herbs, or homeopathy.
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 the patient’s 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.
