nutrition response testing
Nutrition Response Testing? (NRT) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of illness and non-optimum health. With NRT, the underlying cause of the problem is discovered. The analysis is done through testing the body’s own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the Chinese system of acupuncture. Whole food supplements are used initially to heal the imbalance. These supplements are not synthetic vitamins made in a lab, but made from organic fruit, vegetables, and whole foods that are dried in a manner to retain the nutrients as mother nature attended for our body. The corner stone of treatment is a whole food diet that eliminates your individual food sensitivities.
Proper diet is essential to maintaining good health. Keeping the body well-nourished and at a healthy weight has been proven to improve mood, quality of life and longevity. It may also go a long way in preventing or controlling many serious illnesses. Obesity, which has now reached epidemic proportions in the United States, and an enemy of good health, can be kept at bay through proper nutrition along with a program of healthy exercise.
Not only do people feel more energetic and happier when they eat well, they also keep their bodies in the best possible condition. The benefits of good nutrition include developing and maintaining physical strength as well as preventing or controlling disease processes. Research has shown that the following disorders may be avoided, controlled, or mitigated by life styles that include well-balanced nutrition:
- Certain cancers
- Heart disease
- Liver and gall bladder disease
- Type 2 diabetes

- Includes protein sources such as lean organic grass fed meats, organic free roaming poultry, wild fish, beans, organic free range eggs, nuts & legumes.
- Is low in saturated fats, sodium and sugar
- Contains a balance of appropriate vitamins and minerals
