What is Nutrition Response Testing?

Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health.  Our clinically proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced.

We will have some questions for you before and during the testing. The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of 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.

Each 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 does Nutrition Response Testing test for?

Through our analysis, we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing.  It is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ.

If you have been searching for an answer to your symptoms, Nutrition Response Testing is the right move! At Oasis Chiropractic & Wellness, our goal is to find the root cause of your symptoms or illness and work to minimize your discomfort and potentially alleviate it entirely.

  • Bloating

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammation
  • Parasites
  • Hair Loss
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Lyme Disease

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 reflex testing and assessment with a Nutrition Response Testing practitioner.

The NRT 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 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 accurate. There are also no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, nasty needles or laboratory fees to cover.
