Do you feel like life is getting harder and tougher, riddled with problems that don’t seem to resolve like they did when you were younger? Those years of living life in the fast lane now have tickets to be paid in terms of lingering health concerns. When undetected nutritional imbalance, allergies or toxicities are suppressing the body’s ability to restore health, a suboptimal health condition can many times defy treatment.
Aside from accumulations of stressors such as food sensitivities, immune challenges, heavy metal toxicities, chemical toxicities, and scars, our nervous system can be altered in how it responds to our life’s stimuluses. Nerves control all living cells, tissues, and organs. In fact our nervous system is comprised of the Sympathetic (fight or flight) and Parasympathetic (control and regulation) nervous systems, that combined are known as the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). How important is the nervous system? Well if you took everything away from the body and left only the Autonomic Nervous System in place, your friends would still be able to recognize you.
Autonomic defined is “out of our control.” Your nervous system contracts muscles, beats your heart, regulates 600 hormones in the body, removes toxicities, processes foods through your stomach and intestines, breathes oxygen in through the lungs and carbon dioxide out. So for example, even when you can think you can control your breathing and change your respiratory rate or even hold your breath, your Autonomic Nervous System will kick in and over-ride to maintain an optimal state of wellness because that’s what it is designed to do. Utilizing the delicate Autonomic Nervous System is where Nutritional Response Testing picks up on subtle changes.
Nutrition Response Testing (also known as Functional Medicine, Designed Clinical Nutrition, or Applied Kinesiology) is a very precise, specific and noninvasive method of testing, analyzing, and correcting nutritional deficiencies and imbalances in the body.
In other words Nutrition Response Testing is an advanced technique that allows doctors to zero in on exactly which organs are not functioning 100% and are contributing to chronic physical health challenges. Through the testing the team can better recognize and then address the nutritional and environmental factors that are suppressing the body’s ability to manage that youthful feeling that we once had.
Nutritional Response Testing also allows the doctor to find and identify the specific nutrients that have been missing, which when applied allow the body to heal itself, so patients can improve their overall life’s circumstance and again live more productive and satisfying lives.
