Nutrition response testing is used in a variety of fields, attesting to its strong reputation and efficacy. Some of the fields that muscle analysis is used in are functional medicine, designed clinical nutrition, and applied kinesiology. It is very precise, specific and non-invasive.
Nutrition response testing uses the body’s different neurological reflexes to determine a patient’s condition. It gives insight into their overall health and the health of their organs and tissues.
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.
Dr. Morgan starts by identifying a normally functioning group of muscles to analyze and test. He then observes 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 an 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.
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, and metal and chemical exposure.
This tells Dr. Morgan what nutrients you will need for a more balanced diet. Once the testing is finished, he will be able to recommend whole nutritional food supplements that will help heal specific areas in your body.
