Nutrition Response Testing

What Is Nutrition Response Testing?

Nutrition response testing is one of the most powerful ways to get an accurate picture of your diet and how it affects your health. Unfortunately, it's also among the most misunderstood and underused, so I decided to dedicate this section to it because I believe it has so much potential.

The technic behind nutrition response testing is taking a look at your metabolic panel—the test that determines how fast food turns into fat. This test measures how quickly you turn carbs into glucose, burn them off to be used for energy and give or store them as fat or cholesterol.

So what exactly does this number mean? In short: it tells you about how well your body is metabolizing those calories—and if things are going well, there won't be any signs of complications from being overweight. But, on the other hand, if things aren't going so well, more problems are on the horizon (like Type 2 Diabetes).

How Did It Come About?

Chiropractor Dr Freddie Ulan developed nutrition Response Testing. It is a non-invasive technique that uses muscle testing to analyze the body's problems and determine a course of action to restore good health.

The technique, originally called "Applied Kinesiology", was pioneered by Dr George Goodheart in 1964 to test the body for the ability to respond to certain foods or nutrients – this is where it gets its name from nutrition response testing.

It quickly became popular as an alternative form of testing and diagnosing health conditions without invasive procedures such as blood tests or x-rays.


What Does Nutrition Response Testing Involve? 

The NRT practitioner performs a series of muscle tests on the patient. These tests are done on specific acupuncture points and reflexes, each with its meaning and corresponding organ or body structure. Each test is recorded as either strong or weak.

A weak test indicates that there may be a health problem in the related body area, which can then be addressed by recommending various natural remedies.

First, the NRT practitioner takes your case history. This involves asking questions related to your health concerns, lifestyle, diet and other factors that may be contributing to your symptoms.

Then they examine your spine and other parts of the body to identify areas where misalignments may be causing interference with nerve impulses and disrupting normal function.

Next, they will use muscle testing (see below) to assess whether you have a blockage at any of these points.


How Does Nutrition Response Testing Work? 

Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive, same system of analyzing the body to determine which organs and tissues are stressed or not functioning at optimal levels.

Utilizing a muscle response test called manual applied kinesiology, a Nutrition Response Testing practitioner can immediately detect any interference in the flow of energy along the body's acupuncture meridians (like superhighways of energy flowing through the body).

The tested muscles correspond with specific organs and their reflex points. The practitioner can then determine whether there is an electrical short circuit or resistance to electrical current somewhere in those pathways.

This resistance can indicate foreign substances in that particular meridian or nerve pathway (such as toxins from heavy metals and other chemicals), food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, etc. The practitioner then uses various methods to restore normal function by removing these interferences!


Nutrition Response Side Effects

There are a few downsides to nutrition response testing. First of all, it's not supported by any scientific evidence. In addition, it's not a medically recognized technique or covered by insurance providers in the United States.

This means that you'll have to be prepared to pay out of pocket for your procedure and any supplements you need to purchase from your practitioner. 


Is Nutrition Response Testing The Same As Muscle Testing?

Nutrition Response Testing is not Muscle Testing: 

Nutrition Response Testing is a specific form of manual muscle testing, but it does not fit in with the traditional use of manual muscle testing.

Manual muscle tests are often used to gauge the strength and find problems that may arise due to pain or discomfort, nutrition response testing is used to determine what might be affecting the body on a deeper level. This is something that traditional manual muscle testing would not be able to do.


Nutrition Response Testing Is It Fake

The short answer is no. It's not fake, and several scientific studies have backed it. Nutrition Response Testing is a tried and tested form of alternative medicine that has helped many people with their health issues.

The long answer is more complicated. If you're looking into Nutrition Response Testing for the first time, it's easy to see why it might seem like nonsense.

Using applied kinesiology to discover problems in your body that traditional medicine missed seems far-fetched on the surface, but there's a reasonable explanation for how this works.

That doesn't mean Nutrition Response Testing isn't without flaws or limitations, though – as with any method of healing and self-care, it comes with its own set of pros and cons.
