Health Response Testing

Health Response Testing (HRT), is based on the premise that energy flows exist between all parts of the body.   When the body is unwell, which can result from different forms of stress, these flows are disrupted.  A Health Response Test is a process of testing the body's neurological reflexes in order to assess how the nervous system is functioning-since the nervous system is responsible for regulating the body's functions for every organ.  The full body scan will consist of our Health Response Tester applying gentle pressure to your extended arm with one hand and placing their hand on the specific reflex area with the other hand.  If the tested reflex area is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm.  This indicates an underlying stressor in that area that is affecting your health.  Following the response test, you will have a brief consultation with our specialist to explain their findings and their suggested nutritional program.


Benefits of HRT

After receiving and implementing your personalized nutritional program, most patients find that a lot of the issues that they were experiencing decrease in severity until they are completely resolved.  Most find that they sleep better, are more alert throughout the day, and have more energy.  The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional program.  Generally chronic health problems do not suddenly develop overnight, they develop over a long period of time.  This can be due to improper diet, which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances and environmental influences.  Therefore, the sooner and more thoroughly you implement your program, the sooner you will start to see results. While on your program, if you continue those same old habits and routines that contributed to your current condition, your body’s condition may not improve as you hope. Total commitment to your program is strongly urged.

While you are on your own designed clinical nutrition program, you will continue on your health recovery process. We will continue to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed when additional layers show up. The procedure will assist you in attaining the maximum possible health benefits and get the real underlying health issues handled.


Children and Health Response Testing

Nutritional Response Testing is mostly the same for children as it is for adults.  The key difference is that little bodies require different nutrients, at different times and in different doses, than adults.  Also, because the majority of our nutrients come from our food, Nutritional Response Testing for children is most beneficial if they are accompanied by a primary caregiver.  This ensures that the significant findings are conveyed to one of the people that are active in the child's nutritional intake.  Children who adhere to their nutritional program are more likely to have increased focus, decreased hyperactivity, and a healthy digestive system.


Prenatal Health Response Testing

It is no secret that proper nutrition is especially important during pregnancy.  This is the key way that the baby receives nutrition and maintains healthy growth while in utero.  Nutritional Response Testing can play a vital role in identifying dietary deficiencies and aversions.  Our Nutritional Response Testing Specialist will provide a nutritional program that can not only improve the overall health of the mother and baby, but can also provide a natural solution to constipation-a common issue that plagues pregnant mothers.


Supplements

Part of your personalized nutritional program will likely include nutritional supplements.  Our office carries a specific brand of nutritional supplement, Standard Process Supplements.  These whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.  We often think that more is better when choosing supplements, quality is far more important than quantity. A small amount of a vitamin in whole food form is far more effective in the human body than a large dose of an isolated vitamin, which is just a fraction of the whole.

As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. Americans are overfed and undernourished.  However, given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods.
