Muscle Testing- Applied Nutritional Analysis
Nutrition Response Testing using is used in a variety of fields, adding to its strong reputation and efficacy. Some of the fields that Muscle Testing is used in are Functional Medicine, Designed Clinical Nutrition, and Applied Kinesiology. This type of testing is a very precise, specific and it is non-invasive. This method of testing and analyzing is used by our Naturopath, Dr. Morgan, as a tool for evaluating nutritional deficiencies and imbalances in your body.
The analysis begins by identifying a normally functioning group of muscles and then observing your body’s reaction as neurological reflexes and acupuncture points are stimulated. The points tested relate to specific organs and tissues. The response your body produces reflects just how efficient the function of that organ or tissue is in that moment. Because this is a reflex, your physical strength is not a factor and no one is able to fake the results.
The anatomical structure of the human body has not changed significantly in thousands of years, we are able to continue to accurately rely on the behavior of our reflexes and nervous system, therefore making imbalances and weaknesses easily identifiable through this method of testing.
Using this method, Dr. Morgan evaluates your body’s response to specific stressors like common food sensitivities, challenges to your immune system, healing or healed scars, metal and chemical exposure.
