Nutrition Response TestingTM
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. It is the job of the nervous system to regulate a variety of processes for each and every organ. 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.
The practitioner will do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand, and contact the specific reflex area with 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 which can be affecting your health.
"I am a runner and consider myself fit and healthy, but I am always open to improving my health. When I came to see Dr. Munnich I weighed 135 pounds and wanted to lose the last of my menopause weight. She changed some of my vitamins and suggested a gluten free diet. Four months later I weigh 128 pounds. I think my running has improved. I have been very happy with my improvement and plan to stick with my new program. My husband has even been motivated to increase his activity and has lost 15 pounds." —Jackie Kellner
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 accurate.
Following your consultation, you will be given the results in a way that you can understand, with a specific nutritional program to follow. Your nutritional program is explained clearly and written out so that you will understand and be confident in achieving positive results. Our goal is to have your program be something you can incorporate into your existing routine.
How soon will I see improvement?
Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in as little as 4-6 weeks. The most impressive results often come from those that have followed their nutritional program closely. “Nothing changes if nothing changes.”
Sticking to the plan…
Generally chronic health problems do not develop overnight, and many of them can be linked to years of improper diet. This, along with environmental influences creates nutritional deficiencies and imbalances which lead to organ dysfunction.
Therefore, the sooner and more thoroughly you implement the program, the sooner you will start to see results. Our goal in creating a custom designed nutritional program for you is to identify old habits and routines that have contributed to your current condition and replace them with healthy ones.
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 might benefit from Nutrition Response TestingTM. If we determine you are NOT a Nutrition Response TestingTM case then it is unlikely that you will benefit from the program. However, if you ARE a Nutrition Response TestinTM case then in our experience, it is our belief that nothing else will help you more!
