Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)
Nutrition Response Testing is an advanced analysis and personalized health improvement program, using designed clinical nutrition and supplementation, to improve the function of your body’s organs with an accurate nutritional process. NRT provides a glimpse into the body’s “internal computer” as well as an awareness of the body’s deficiencies. The analysis is done through muscle testing, neurological reflex testing, and acupuncture points.
Like a car, your body runs on fuel and requires proper maintenance for it to perform at its highest level. Unlike a car, it is harder to notice the warning signs of poor health because common symptoms can be related to numerous illnesses. Nutrition Response Testing properly fuels your body to improve functionality and reduces symptoms.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Shah can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Nutrition Response Testing is an offshoot and hybrid of Applied Kinesiology which is a diagnostic tool and health care system used by medical doctors, homeopaths, naturopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists and many other alternative-care practitioners. The underlying principle is that the body is run by chemical and electrical signals that are sent from (and back to) the brain via the spinal cord and the fluid nervous system.
All of our organs are controlled by the brain and nervous system, and our hundreds of muscles are controlled by and connected to the nervous system. If there’s an interference with electrical messages, the result is a weakened muscle. NRT uses many of the same muscle testing principles as Applied Kinesiology, but it is its own separate system of diagnosis. The fundamental principle of NRT is that a symptom can be caused by any imbalance in the body. Once the imbalance is treated properly, the symptom will disappear.
A healthy, unafflicted muscle is naturally strong and will resist average resistance. What you probably think of as simple muscle strength is actually a much deeper connection to nerves, organs, glands and all of the systems of the body.
