Nutrition Response Testing
by Laura Sheehan
Nutrition Response Testing analysis is done by testing neurological reflexes and specific acupuncture points on the body’s surface. An initial analysis provides practitioners with an energy assessment of how well the organs and systems of the body are functioning. Nutrition Response Testing also provides a system of monitoring the body at each follow-up visit.
The neurological reflexes and acupuncture points are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. These reflexes and acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture. Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex corresponds to a specific organ, system or function and helps practitioners determine the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on overall health.
Through an analysis of the body’s reflexes, practitioners help clients to determine the nutrients that are necessary in order to bring about balanced and improved health. A plan is created and may include suggestions for the dietary addition of specific nutritional food supplements, dietary changes, improved eating habits, exercise, stress reduction and changes to daily activity and sleep routines in order to bring about positive, lasting results.
Using the Nutrition Response Testing technique, holistic practitioners work together with clients to find a personalized healing program that improves overall health. The focus is on the whole body to find the root of the problem as opposed to simply masking symptoms.
