What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if I were to analyze you 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. I can completely understand that because when I first saw this type of work being done, my first reaction was “Hmm, what is this strange stuff?” No one was more skeptical than I was. As a result, I studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real. And I am sure happy I did because it has helped me improve my health, and because of Nutrition Response Testing, we are able to help you improve your health.
If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is, and what our recommendations are based on. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and do what you need to do to get well. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through, you won’t get well. And if you are not going to get well, why do it in the first place?
The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% and better range. The only reason we are here is to help you get well. We have no other reason. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing is right from the start.
Treating the cause rather than the symptoms…
In medical practice, there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and /or naming the “disease” or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.). With Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease – but we also have two parts: the analysis and the personal health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).
Simply put, first we do an analysis, and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or part. 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.
What exactly is DESIGNED CLINICAL NUTRITION?
First, Designed Clinical Nutrition is not ‘over-the-counter’ vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutical engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not “whole food,” and the body does not actually recognize these as anything even vaguely beneficial (to put it mildly). Because they are not made from whole foods, “over-the-counter” vitamins lack the essential synergistic elements normally present in WHOLE foods.
An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex. A “complex” is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic vitamin A does not contain the whole “Vitamin A Complex” found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices. If one actually were deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, one would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex – not from chemicals engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the vitamin A Complex that was erroneously been labeled as “Vitamin A.”
Vitamins that are being used all over today generally only need to have a small percentage of their actual content derived from natural sources to be labeled “natural.” If they are not derived from whole foods, they often make you even more deficient and nutritionally out–of-balance. They can create other health problems because they do not contain all of the co-factors found in nature that make the vitamins work. So-called “scientific research,” done with these shoddy substitutes, repeatedly “proves” that vitamins are good for anyone! Can you imagine who pays for this “research?”
“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is exactly that: designed (especially 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).
It is whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system that preserves all the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as the Creator 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. These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, but it is for sure due, in some large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available.
Here is one, of many, testimonial showing how NRT has helped this patient.
Prior to treatment, I found myself so exhausted that I could hardly function. I have two small children and could barely complete the “usual” daily routines, let alone anything extra. All I wanted to do was sleep and I was well aware of how apathetic I had become. I was tired no matter how much sleep I got. Since I started taking the recommended supplements and following my program guidelines, I feel like I did prior to having children. I wake up with energy, enjoy my children, and have pursued interests that I was too exhausted to even think about before. I truly thank Dr. Lisa and her staff for helping me to feel so well! ——S. B.
