Nutrition Response Testing℠

What Is Nutrition Response Testing

Nutrition Response Testing℠ is a very precise and scientific method of nutritional analysis. However, if I were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing℠ before it was explained to you, you might find it strange or simply not believable only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. I can completely understand that because I made fun of this type of testing for many years. I called it "touch & tell". No one was more skeptical than I was. I finally decided to study Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real. I sure am happy I did because it has helped me improve my health, the health of hundreds of others, and because of Nutrition Response Testing℠ , we are prepared to help you improve your health also.

Quite frankly, if you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing℠ is, and what our recommendations for you are based upon.

If you don’t have a basic understanding of Nutrition Response Testing℠, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through, you won’t get well. And if you are not going to follow through to get well, why do it in the first place? That makes sense doesn't it?

The results we've been having with Nutrition Response Testing℠ are the best we have had in almost 20 years involvement in healthcare. The only reason we are providing this service is to help you get better. We have no other reason for existing, and hopefully you are here for that same reason. That's why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing℠ is right from the start.

Let's get started

In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the "disease" or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.). In Nutrition Response Testing℠ we do not diagnose or treat disease - but we also have two parts: the Nutrition Response Testing℠ Analysis and the Personalized Health Improvement Program using Individualized Nutrition. Simply put, first we do an analysis, and then we design a personal, natural health improvement program to help you overcome the imbalances we find in our analysis of your body and condition.

These reflexes are the body's way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing- as it is the nervous system's responsibility to regulate the body's functions for each and every organ.

Part 1: The Nutrition Response Testing Analysis

  • The analysis is done by testing the body’s own bio-energetic reflexes and acupuncture points. The bio-energetic reflexes are integral to the Autonomic Nervous System, which is that part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.
  • Nutrition Response Testing℠ is a study of how the different reflexes on the surface of the body relate to your state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
  • The utilization of these bio-energetic reflexes and specific acupuncture points has become extremely useful in our Nutrition Response Testing℠ practice because they are so accurate!
  • Nutrition Response Testing℠ analysis also tests for the five most common "stressors" that can hinder an individual's response to natural therapies. They are: allergies to major food groups, chemical toxicity, heavy metal toxicity like mercury, lead and aluminum, chronic immune challenges, and scars on the surface of the body.

Part 2: A Personalized Health Improvement Program Utilizing Individualized Nutrition Analysis

  • Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are "active." Then what? Our next step is to test specific, time-tested and proven, nutritional formulas of the highest possible quality against those weak bio-energetic reflexes to find which ones bring the "active" reflexes back to strength. Decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be “active” in the first place. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.
  • Can it be that simple? YES!!!! In Nutrition Response Testing℠, we use Individualized Nutrition to correct the cause of your problem, so that your body can regain the ability to correct itself. What a novel but wonderful thought.

Think About It

Each Nutrition Response Testing℠ reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on your body. I hope this precision sounds like something you would want for yourself to help determine what is needed and wanted by your body to get you to the next stage of improved health?

How do we access these bio-energetic reflexes

If I were to hook you up to an electro-cardiograph machine and take a reading of your heart beat, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during this procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.

In Nutrition Response Testing℠ instead of connecting electrodes to the specific reflex points being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing℠ clinician contacts these reflex points with his own hand. With his other hand, he will test a muscle that he found to have a good "lock" usually your extended arm. If the reflex being contacted is "active," the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and unlock. This unlocking signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.

Why do people with many varied health conditions respond so well to Nutrition Response Testing℠

Because, by utilizing the above described procedure, we find the "active" reflexes that indicate underlying organ stress or dysfunction, and then develop a Personalized Health Improvement Program to help their body return to an improved state of health. It really is that uncomplicated. The exciting thing is, we are prepared to do the exact same thing for you. The best is yet to come.

Amazing Results for Difficult Problems

  • Inability to Lose or Gain Weight
  • High Blood Pressure/Low Blood Pressure
  • PMS/Menstrual Cramps
  • Constipation/Chronic Diarrhea
  • Diabetes/Low Blood Sugar
  • Irritability/Anger
  • Acid Reflux/Bloating
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis

...and many more problems for which women are treated with prescription drugs and surgery.

Carter Natural Health Revitalization Center certainly doesn't exclude men. We are currently helping men with problems such as: enlarged prostate, decreased libido, weight gain, irregular heart beat, high blood pressure, diabetes and other health issues. However, women are usually those most involved in raising children and also often work outside the home as well. Women are the world's best jugglers of time. Women manage most of the household duties, cooking, cleaning, running the kids, etc. They have many pressures that men don't have and a hormone system that is sensitive to that pressure over time. The ultimate price for the demands placed on women is often an early breakdown of hormonal balance that spirals into declining energy levels, excessive weight gain, failing health and accelerated aging. Not a good scenario. You may know exactly what I'm talking about.
