Those who typically seek our care:
. . . have one or more health conditions that have become chronic
. . . have tried conventional medicine or even alternative practitioners without satisfactory improvement
. . . have experienced impact in their personal lives, i.e. in relationships with spouse or children, in career or job performance, and/or in personal finances as a result of health issues
. . . know that in time their conditions are not going to get better and will probably continue to worsen unless effective changes are made.
If you see yourself in any or all of these descriptions, and you are ready to commit to making the changes necessary to begin your journey to wellness then we invite you to participate in our Health Improvement Program [H.I.P.]. This program incorporates the process of Nutrition Response Testing®.
Our H.I.P. / Nutrition Response Testing® Program in our media chiropractic office demands your commitment to taking charge of your own health and your commitment to following recommendations faithfully in order to optimize your potential health benefits. It is therefore very important that you are aware of what Nutrition Response Testing® is and upon what criteria our recommendations will be based. If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, and you are ready to demand health improvement to restore your health and wellness, then you are a candidate for this program.
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if you were to be analyzed using Nutrition Response Testing before it was explained to you, you might find it strange, or simply not believable – only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before.
Nutrition Response Testing® is a procedure that utilizes the principles of applied kinesiology [A.K.] to test the organs and systems of the body for deficiencies and weaknesses. It uses A.K. 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. Through our analysis we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how the nervous system is doing. We test organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc.
The body responds to these procedures reliably and consistently. This feedback is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where everything else has failed.
YOUR BODY has the potential to fully repair most anything for itself, given the right nutrients and care.
It is very important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing® is and appreciate how it works. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. If you do not follow through, you will not experience the benefits you seek.
In Nutrition Response Testing® we do not diagnose or treat disease.
There are two parts to the program
. . . The analysis is done through testing the body’s own neurological reflexes and certain acupuncture points. Nutrition Response Testing® analyzes the different points and 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.
. . . The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it 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.
. . . Each Nutrition Response Testing® reflex represents a specific organ, tissue or function, and it indicates the effect that energy or lack of energy, is having upon the body. By testing these reflexes, 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 as you would with an electrocardiogram [EKG] to test the neuro-electric activity of the heart, the Nutrition Response Testing® practitioner tests the reflex areas through contact with his / her own hand.
With the practitioner’s other hand, he / she will test the muscle of your extended arm. 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 can be affecting your health.
. . . Our next step is to test specific, time-tested and proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas 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 have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have identified the most important first step in correcting 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.
. . . In Nutrition Response Testing® we use Designed Clinical Nutrition to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
Designed Clinical Nutrition is what it says . . .
designed (specially prepared, based on a specific plan)
clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years)
nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).
Designed Clinical Nutrition is concentrated, whole food in a tablet, capsule, powder or liquid, prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as Nature intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing® reflexes that were found on your individual Nutrition Response Testing® analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
Designed Clinical Nutrition does NOT employ Over-The-Counter vitamins. O-T-C vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. O-T-C vitamins are not “genuine replacement parts” as they lack many of the essential elements normally present in WHOLE foods.
Through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balance and better health. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, powdered or in liquid 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 & eating habits and in your routines, in order to bring about the best possible result.
In Nutrition Response Testing® we do not diagnose or treat disease.
