Introduction to Nutrition Response Testing
Welcome to the state of the art technology in "health" care today. If you have wondered why you have tried and failed to restore your health, you are about to find the "missing piece" to the puzzle.
We specialize in eliminating:
- Environmental toxins (i.e. chlorine, lead, mercury, formaldehyde, arsenic, aluminum, etc.)
- Various forms of viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi in the body
- Electromagnetic Fields (EMF's), which short circuit the body's own electrical system
- Food sensitivities, allergies and toxins (i.e. pesticides, food preservatives, food coloring, etc.)
We find that most illness and dis-ease in the 21st century has an environmental component. This toxic buildup accumulates deep within our organs and most often goes completely undetected. If you don't detect and eliminate all forms of toxic stress on the body, people simply can't recover or achieve optimal health.
Nutrition Response Testing is such an empirically based technology that is systematic, duplicatable and, most importantly, predictably effective. Welcome to the leading edge technology in "health" care today.
What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a technology that reveals the "missing piece," the key to solving your health concern. By accessing the autonomic nervous system (ANS), critical information about your bodily functions is discovered. Autonomic means "occurring involuntarily." Bodily functions like eye blinking, heart and breathing rates, digestive metabolism, immune response, hormone regulation and so forth are regulated by the ANS.
There are two controls to the ANS: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Think of them as our body's accelerator and brake --- our "go" pedal and "whoa" pedal! When our bodies are healthy and in balance, these systems function properly and in tune with one another --- the sympathetic dominates when we are active, the parasympathetic when we are resting. These regulators are responsible for healthy function including our ability to heal. It is when there is an imbalance that we experience symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, allergies, acid reflux, high blood pressure, chronic pain, immune deficiencies, headaches, migraines and the like. Think of these symptoms as "check engine lights" or "alarm bells." These imbalances can be corrected safely, naturally, and effectively by accessing the ANS using Nutrition Response Testing.
The technique is Painless, Powerful and Personalized. A practitioner uses his/her hand, pressing lightly on a patient's acupuncture points, reflex locations, or body organs while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group. In this way (1) we identify the stressors adversely affecting your organs or glands, (2) we identify their priority, and (3) we determine the corresponding tools to correct your imbalance(s).
We then pinpoint the correct whole-food supplements and/or herbs for your body and recommend needed dietary and lifestyle changes. The result is a personalized health improvement program that addresses your own body's imbalances and corrects its operation. Our goals are the same as yours: achieving good health and feeling good again --- safely, naturally, and effectively.
How do we access the autonomic nervous system?
We use Applied Kinesiology, a bio feedback, commonly known as muscle testing. It involves using the practioner's hand, lightly pressing on different acupuncture points or reflex locations on the body while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group. This highly effective method of evaluation gives the practitioner essential information about what your body says its requirements are to heal.
Who can benefit from out Nutritional Healing Program?
Men, women and children! Anyone who wants to improve their health, maintain the good health they currently enjoy, lose weight naturally and effectively without drugs or "miracle diets," boost their energy level, curb their sugar or carbohydrate cravings, or take less medication. In other words, anyone who seriously wants to address their own body's "dis-ease!"
What conditions can it address?
Here is just a partial list of conditions we address on a daily basis at Connecticut Wellness Center: weight control, fatigue, stress and depression, acid reflux, ADHD, allergies, arthritis, asthma, bloating, high blood pressure, candida, high cholesterol, chronic pain, colds and flu, constipation, diarrhea, food sensitivities, headaches and migraines, heart conditions, IBS~IBD, infertility, menopause and PMS, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, skin/hair/nail issues, tremors --- and others.
What is the Nutrition Response Testing Program?
It is an individualized health improvement program designed to restore normal bodily function. The reason we succeed where others have failed is because we access the body's innate intelligence and combine it with our educated intelligence. We find the hidden health problems!
What will I experience at my first Nutrition visit?
The initial visit includes a complete review of your symptoms and health history, a computer analysis of your Nervous System to determine your current state of health and a complete exam to identify environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities, etc. The second part of your initial visit includes a Report of Findings, which will reveal the root CAUSE of your health concerns and a specific, customized plan of action on how to get your health back. If accepted for care you may begin your program for this visit.
What will I experience at your clinic?
This empirically proven technique allows us to accurately determine what conditions of stress or deficiency are interfering with your body's healing process. You will be tested for five common stressors: scars, food sensitivities, immune challenge, chemical challenge, and metal challenge. Next, the priority gland or organ is determined. Finally, nutritional whole-food supplements or herbs are recommended to support your specific needs. This is all done painlessly by the practitioner, applying light pressure with his/her hand on reflexes/acupuncture points associated with a specific organ or gland while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group.
What is an HRV (Heart Rate Variability test)?
HRV is a fully automatic, noninvasive, computer-based system designed to assess physical fitness and the functional balance of the automatic nervous system (ANS). It is the autonomic nervous system that acupuncture, homeopathy and chiropractic rely on to accomplish changes in bodily function. Clinical tests conducted at Columbia University Medical Center have confirmed this system to be over 95% accurate in its assessment when compared to industry standards. It accurately determines your heart's ability to respond to daily stress. It also provides a score that reports how healthy you are.
Most people assume that because children are young, they are healthy. This is untrue --- and now more than ever. Due to the refined, processed, and adulterated foods we eat, our children are not getting the nutrition they need. How can we provide them with a strong foundation of health with so many nutritional deficiencies present around them? Every child should be on a nutritional program and, just as with our adult clients, our programs are specially designed to address the personalized needs of your child. Childhood "dis-eases" need not be a permanent life sentence, and many are simply nutritional deficiencies. Once addressed, the symptoms may improve dramatically or disappear altogether. Positive reinforcement is key: you cannot expect your child to give up junk food if you don't!
To better educate you on how to be healthy and what to eat, we have packets and handouts offered to you. There is a variety of health topics and issues to choose from. In addition, our website offers research pages and links to other websites we consider of interest.
