The Health Corner Vol. 44 – Introduction to Nutrition Response Testing II
Last time, we discussed universal intelligence and its roll in healing the body. We also talked a bit about how Nutrition Response Testing uses universal intelligence to help the body heal itself, and I left you with the question…
‘How exactly does it work?’
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive tool for analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health. It is a proven system that may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced. The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently. And the feedback provided is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in many cases where everything else has failed.
In Nutrition Response Testing, the body’s neurological reflexes are tested. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling the practitioner how one’s nervous system is doing, as it is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s function for each and every organ. The testing procedure includes organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc. These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body and the findings are analyzed.
The Nutrition Response Testing practitioner does the analysis by contacting the individual’s extended arm with one hand, which acts as a biofeedback monitor, and contacting the specific reflex area with his other hand. If a tested reflex is stressed, exerting a slight pressure directly on the skin overlying that gland or organ will cause the nervous system to respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, which will then weaken and drop. This indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in that gland or organ which can affect a patient’s health. If completely healthy, the arm being tested will remain strong throughout the testing procedure. It really is that simple.
A unique characteristic of Nutrition Response Testing is that the body will always tell the practitioner exactly what needs to be addressed first. To illustrate this, I like to use the analogy of the onion. Let’s say that the practitioner finds several reflexes that are weak in his initial testing of a particular patient. After all of the problem areas are identified, a priority-testing mode is used to identify which weakness is currently of primary importance. The next step is to see if the weakness is being caused or aggravated by any of five common stress factors, either singly or in combination. These stressors are: major food allergies, heavy metals toxicity, chemical toxicity, chronic unresolved infections, and scars. If the stress factors are not addressed first, treatment of the target tissues will help, but will never totally succeed because these stressors are most often the root cause of the problem.
The concept of finding and treating the stressors is exclusive to the Nutrition Response Testing procedure, which sets it apart from basic Applied Kinesiology. In actuality, there are many such aspects of this procedure which will be explored later, that further demonstrate its superiority over any other system presently in use. This makes Nutrition Response Testing the standard for evaluating and treating health conditions in the alternative healthcare arena, as well as in mainstream medical circles.
Now, let’s say that the priority on this patient shows up as a thyroid weakness due to mercury toxicity, which is also causing a low-grade, chronic viral condition. The practitioner then continues using the testing procedure to find the correct diet and supplement program to handle these issues. This, according to our analogy, would be considered the first layer of the onion.
After this first layer has been treated for a few weeks, re-testing might indicate that the thyroid is now strong, but a liver weakness is now of primary concern.
This process of testing, re-testing, finding new layers of issues, and fine-tuning the patient’s program continues until the body indicates that all layers have been addressed … or, until the patient is as close to ideal health as humanly possible. At that point, a maintenance program is decided upon.
Because the body is designed to heal itself, provided it has the necessary ingredients, the importance of proper nutrition, is the key essential to the success of this system of analysis and treatment. Dr. Ulan has discovered that the body will respond extremely well to a treatment regimen consisting mostly of whole food nutritional supplements, along with any indicated botanical remedies, essential fatty acids, homeopathic drainage remedies, and specific dietary recommendations. Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in as little as 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional program.
Nutrition Response Testing has often been found to be effective when other conventional and alternative treatments have failed, and may be considered for virtually all illnesses, both acute and chronic degenerative conditions, including patients with chronic health problems. Some examples of conditions that can be successfully treated with Nutrition Response Testing are headaches, chronic fatigue, excessive weight, depression, digestive problems, constipation, Crohn’s disease, acid reflux, high blood pressure, diabetes, fibromyalgia … the list can go on and on!
Nutrition Response Testing is truly a comprehensive testing procedure. I hope this overview is helpful to you in understanding it.
Here’s to your good health!
