Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the root cause of ill health. It uses muscle strength testing to communicate with the body’s own innate intelligence to evaluate the body’s response to a broad variety of substances that may be affecting health and function. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health. After we test your body to figure out the root cause of what’s preventing you from feeling like your best self, we work with you to form a whole foods plan that will assist your body in its efforts to heal itself.
According to Ulan Nutritional Systems, Nutrition Response Testing 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. Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these organs / areas have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate!
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 Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with his/her own hand. On the other hand, he/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.
Here at Nutritest + Wellness, we believe that the human body has wonderful and innate capabilities to correct itself when you feel ill, as long as it has the proper support. It seems like someone is always pushing the next supplement, herb or drink for ultimate vitality. We think a lot of that is not helpful. Nutrition Response Test and our practice is much different.
In a Nutrition Response Test, we can test specific supplements on your body using a form of muscle testing. Our practitioner, Abigail, is trained to know what supplement should be best based on an initial test and then once she narrows down to a smaller selection, she is then able to essentially ask your body what it needs. Through the testing, she is able to determine exactly how much of the supplement is necessary and how many times a day. This will help the body heal whatever is causing you negative symptoms.
We can even test supplements, powders and capsules you are currently taking to see if they ‘test well’ for your body. If they don’t test well, it means your body is not able to properly absorb them. This could be a reason why you’re taking a supplement for a use it’s commonly associated with and it’s not working.
The supplements we carry in house at Nutritest + Wellness are some of the highest quality supplements on the market and run by a family owned company. The best part is that they’re also affordable. This is why the same herb/plant by supplements we carry usually test way better on our clients than the same plant/herb made by a different brand that they are already using.
