AFC Nutrition Response Testing
What is Nutrition Response Testing®?
Nutrition Response Testing® is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
This clinically proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced. The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all the information and feedback needed. We use the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health changes . . . exactly as Nature intended.
The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently. This feedback is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where everything else has failed.
What makes this testing unique?
In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the "disease" or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.). In Nutrition Response Testing® we do not diagnose or treat disease - but we also have two parts: the analysis (the assessment of your body's current health status) and the personalized 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.
What are we testing for?
Through our analysis we are testing your body's own neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body's way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing--as it is the nervous system's responsibility to regulate the body's functions for each and every organ. The testing includes organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc. These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body and then the findings are analyzed.
How do we get the body's "reflex" information?
Energy flows exist between all parts and organs of the body. These flows can become disrupted for a variety of reasons. This disruption is easily discovered with our testing. As a Nutrition Response Testing® practitioner, we will do a full body scan to properly assess each of your reflexes.
The practitioner will do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand, and contact the specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm (which will weaken and cause it to drop). A drop in the arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in that area which can be affecting your health. Once the underlying stress is corrected, this weak muscle response will no longer occur.
Since we directly use the body for analysis, (versus doing lab tests) it is faster and tends to be just as (if not more) accurate. There are also no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, nasty needles or laboratory fees to cover.
Following your consultation you will be given the results in a way that you can understand, with a specific nutritional program to follow.
How soon will I see improvement?
Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in a little as 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional program.
Is it important to stick to the plan?
Generally chronic health problems do not suddenly develop overnight. They develop over a long period of time (often years) with improper diet (which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances) and environmental influences. All of which have gotten you into your current health condition.
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.
What are my chances for recovery?
Our experience in a wide variety of cases tells us the first thing we must determine is whether or not you are a "Nutrition Response Testing Case". If you are NOT a "Nutrition Response Testing Case" then it is unlikely that Nutrition Response Testing® will ever help you. However, if you ARE a "Nutrition Response Testing Case", then in our experience, it is our belief that nothing else will help you as much.
What happens next?
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. This procedure will assist you in attaining the maximum possible health benefits and get the real underlying health issues handled.
