Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of non-optimal health.


What is Nutrition Response Testing®?

Nutrition Response Testing is a muscle testing technique that uses a strong “indicator” muscle to help analyze the body to determine the underlying causes of non-optimal health. Nutrition Response Testing may differ from any other healing practice you may have experienced.

The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the patient’s body providing all of the information feedback needed. We use the extraordinary properties of human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health changes…exactly as nature intended.

The body responds to the procedure 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.

What are we testing for?

Through our analysis, we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing – as it is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ. The testing includes organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc. These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body, and then the findings are analyzed.

How do we get the body’s “reflex” information?

Energy flows exist between all parts and organs of the body. These flows can become disrupted for a variety of reasons. This disruption is easily discovered with our testing.

Your practitioner will do a full body scan to properly assess each of your reflexes. The analysis is performed by contacting your extended arm with one hand and contacting the specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm (which will weaken and cause it to drop). A drop in the arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in that area. Once the underlying stress is corrected, this weak muscle response will no longer occur.

Since we directly use the body for analysis (versus doing lab tests), it is faster and tends to be just as (if not more) accurate. There are also no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, nasty needles, or laboratory fees to cover.

Following your evaluation, you will be given the results in a way you can understand, with a specific nutritional program that will help support healing in your body.

Is it important to stick to the plan?

Chronic health problems do not suddenly develop overnight. They develop over a long period of time (often years) with improper diet (which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances) and environmental influences. Therefore, the sooner and more thoroughly you implement your program, the sooner you will start to see results. While on your program, if you continue those same old habits and routines that contributed to your current condition, your body’s condition may not improve as you hope. Total commitment to your program is strongly urged.

What are my chances for recovery?

Our long-term experience in a wide variety of cases tells us the first thing we must determine is whether or not you are a “Nutrition Response Testing Case.” If you are NOT a “Nutrition Response Testing Case,” then it is unlikely that Nutrition Response Testing will ever help you. However, if you ARE a “Nutrition Response Testing Case,” in our experience, we believe nothing else will help you as much.

What happens next?

While on your designed clinical nutrition program, we will continue monitoring your progress and adjust your program as needed when additional healing layers appear. This procedure will assist you in attaining the maximum possible health benefits.


Designed: Especially prepared for you, based on a specific plan.

Clinical: Pertaining to the results achieved in clinical use on a multitude of patients over many years.

Nutrition: Real food, as designed by nature, to enable the body to repair itself and become healthier.

After you receive your analysis, you will get a specifically designed nutrition program based on the information your body provides. Most programs include dietary suggestions (as well as whole food supplements) to aid your body in healing itself. Concentrated whole food supplements are used, prepared by a unique process that preserves all active enzymes and vital components.

How do I know which supplements are right for me?

After we identify the underlying reason your body is creating symptoms, we can isolate and verify the precise whole food supplements (and quantities) your body needs to resolve its problems.

What are “Whole Foods”?

“Whole food” is defined as “food that has undergone very little processing and has been grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

A good example of a whole food is a carrot. Carrots are rich in vitamin A complex. A “complex” is something made up of different parts which work together. Synthetic vitamins do not contain the whole complex (as found in nature.) If testing indicated a vitamin A deficiency, we would look for a whole food high in vitamin A complex (and carrots would be a likely source.) A supplement rich in this complex would then be included in your program.

Whole food supplements are entirely derived from specific whole foods, organically grown, and prepared in such a way that preserves their vital enzymes and vitamins, making them the optimum vitamin-mineral products. Now, in incredibly concentrated form, your body can get complete nutrition from this small tablet!

I thought I ate well?

Unfortunately, eating well is challenging these days. Most food is grown in nutrient-deficient soil and often processed with chemicals that can be harmful to our health.

Even though you think you are eating healthy, chances are, what you’re consuming is really just “disguised” as food. Not only does this “food” have insufficient nutritional value, but it may also contain toxins, which work against your body and your health.

Can’t I just eat better?

There has been a drastic decline in food quality over the past 70 years, resulting in a nation of sick people dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. Your body’s function is founded on nourishment from the environment (which, until recently, did not include heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and pesticides.) Current food conditions make it next to impossible to get all of the nutritional components your body requires to heal and/or maintain resiliency.

How long will it take for me to start feeling healthy again?

Each patient’s case is handled on an individual basis. The majority of our patients who adhere to their programs have reported noticing positive changes in the first few weeks of working with us!

Do I have to stay on a Designed Clinical Nutrition regimen forever?

Through the course of your program, additional layers will show up. For example, if you have a long-term health problem, you may find that your body may (or may not) want to address that problem first. Your body will dictate its priority each time you are tested. When its priority problem is handled with correct nutrients, your next test may reveal another major issue (which may have been long hidden and unhandled.) As this happens, we will adjust your program. Our goal is to have you on as few supplements as possible.

Good dietary habits will always be encouraged. Continuing poor habits will perpetuate ill health and inhibit your body’s natural ability to heal itself. As you feel better and your health improves, you will likely find yourself wanting to maintain a well-balanced and healthy diet as your normal routine.
