What is Nutritional Muscle Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive technique that allows us to assess the health of your nervous system and organs with a procedure that is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback we need. (Note that we will have some nutritional & medical questions for you before, and during the testing.)
The analysis is done through testing the body’s nervous system and organs. Each area that gives a response represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing these organs / areas at each visit helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, as in an EKG, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area being contacted is “active” the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
