What Is Nutrition Response Testing®?

Simply put, Nutrition Response Testing® is a very precise, scientific, non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health, and placing a person on a personalized program of whole food nutritional supplements and diet to allow the body to repair itself. It will discover the malfunctioning systems of the body and the nutritional deficiency or toxins causing it.


nutrion and wellnessWhat Can I Expect In My First Appointment?​

We will have some questions for you before and during the testing. The first step involves a full health history, symptom survey, a Health Express Analysis computerized test and the Nutrition Response Testing® itself. The actual procedure is simple and direct, with your body providing all the information and feedback needed. We use the extraordinary ability of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health improvements bringing about a Total Health Restoration for you and your entire family. The body has the full potential to fully repair itself, when given the correct nutrients.​​​​​​​​​​​


What Are We Testing For?

As the Doctor or Practitioner is using the Nutrition Response Testing® he is testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the nervous system’s way of telling him what and how your organ’s and other body systems are doing because the nervous system regulates the body’s functions for each and every organ. The testing includes all organs, glands, joints, muscles and the entire body.

These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body and then the findings are analyzed and your personal Total Health Restoration program will be designed.​​​​​​​​​​​


Is It Accurate?

With this method of testing, there is no guessing involved. The individual’s body will help to determine the exact nutrients the patient needs to supplement in his or her diet in order to bring about balance and better health.

According to Dr. Freddie Ulan, the originator of the technique, “N.R.Testing enables us to test each patient at a core level and identify the real causes of dis-function. We can now correct the root of the problem using time tested nutritional protocols that are safe, sensible and economic, which produce the results we have always felt were possible for our patients.”

“Nutrition Response Testing® is a medical muscle testing system grounded in solid science. It is today probably the fastest and least invasive way to accurately detect food allergies, geopathic and biophysical stress, interference fields, stressed organs and structures, emotional blocks, heavy metal toxicity, dental problems, environmental toxicity and more.”
