After a year of proper diet and supplements, she was feeling a lot better. Applied Kinesiology AK practitioners use manual muscle testing MMT to identify what are believed to be immediate neurological responses to a variety of challenges and treatments. I had difficultly thinking and remembering details. It was very comfortable and private- no awkward moments at all! We are happy we did because it has helped us greatly improve our own health and with NRT, we may be able to help you improve yours.
Ulan on his website. NRT is probably verydifferent from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you using NRT without an explanation you may find it strange or mysterious. We felt similarly when we first encountered it and, therefore, have studied it extensively to see if it really worked.
We are happy we did because it has helped us greatly improve our own health and with NRT, we may be able to help you improve yours. In medical practice there are two key parts: The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job 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. NRT is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
Since human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points has become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate.
Each NRT reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body.
By testing these reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that helps us identify what your needs and how well we are meeting those needs. If we were to hook you up to an EKG machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during that procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the EKG record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.
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 drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which may be affecting your health. Our next step is to test specific high quality nutritional supplements against those weak areas to find which ones bring the 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 of supporting 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. A complete NRT analysis can be done on each client on each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layers of dysfunction so these can also be addressed and supported. In this way, each client gets completely individualized handling in the correct sequence for his or her body.
Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time — then the lock opens. With a correctly done NRT analysis, we can determine the correct food supplements for you — designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying well. Many people we see in our practice have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health, to one degree or another.
Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses chemical, microscopic, or otherwise. What could be more natural? What could be more correct? Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. The health of each organ is dependent on making the correct nutrients available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at a cellular level.
With this understanding of what we do, we feel you can comprehend how we are able to work with you to help you more effectively improve your health. Once that is achieved, do you see how you might be able to use this approach to stay well?
It is important to remember that in the end you are the one responsible for your own condition. We wish you the best of luck in your quest to take back full responsibility for your health. Just remember to do it one step at a time and that we are here to guide you in that quest.
Once we accept your case, you can count on us to do everything in our ability to help you achieve your health objectives and to help you achieve a healthier, happier life. After going to my first NRT class last nite, I was a bit apprehensive. However, after reading up a bit and thinking a lot about this, I have decided to take this on full force!!!
There is nothing I want more than to rid myself of these prescribed toxins that are definitely slowly, killing me. I look forward to this new direction in my life. Thank you Thank you. Where can I learn this? The results obtained were compared to lab results and computerized isometric muscle testing.
The results of the study indicated that the use of applied kinesiology to evaluate nutrient status is no more useful than random guessing. There are several well-known physicians that conclude that the best AK tests and procedures are ineffective in studies comparing them to standard medical techniques.
There is no good scientific evidence to support the claims made by AK practitioners. Andrew Weil, a well-known natural health and wellness physician, agrees that the AK techniques are not reliable see his website http: At best being tested for food allergies or nutrient deficiencies using MMT or NRT techniques will likely only temporarily work think placebo effect and at worse a potentially serious illness may go undiagnosed and untreated.
Although it may not pose an acute danger to health, if there is a misdiagnosed allergy or nutrient deficiency this could have serious consequences in the long run. What if there is a misdiagnosis of nutrient deficiency and nutrient supplements are provided in the absence of a clinical diagnosis through blood testing? This could lead to the potential for toxicity. Many of the practitioners I found online want to sell their clients specific nutrient or herbal supplementation.
The client may leave the appointment having no idea what they are taking and if the supplements are effective or safe. As a registered dietitian I occasionally recommend a supplement to a client, but only after ample research regarding a specific supplement and brand has been completed and a true clinical diagnosis or laboratory test confirms a true allergy or deficiency.
Consult with a registered dietitian who specializes in food allergies if you suspect a food allergy. If you suspect a micronutrient deficiency then it is smart to get a micronutrient blood test.
