How does Nutrition Response Testing work?
Nutrition Response Testing is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis.
Nutrition Response Testing incorporates the method of muscle testing – also known as applied kinesiology.
Muscle Testing is a non-invasive system of evaluating the function of the body, and has become a dynamic movement in health care in its relatively short existence. The combined terms “applied” and “kinesiology” describe the basis of this system, which is the use of checking body reflexes to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system.
Muscle testing involves having the patient lie down and testing their arm reflexes while exposing the patient to different vials of immunological challenges (bacterias, heavy metals, chemicals, common food allergies, etc). The body will respond to the vials by a subtle contraction in one of the arms if that particular vial contains a substance that the body is having problems with. This is the body’s neuromuscular reaction to the energy coming from the vial.
