Introduction To A Personalized Nutritional Healing Program
Welcome to the state of the art technology in “health” care today. If you have wondered why you have tried and failed to restore your health, you are about to find the “missing piece” to the puzzle. Read on and find what you have been looking for in holistic healthcare.
Nutrition Response Testing is an empirically based technology that is systematic, duplicatable and most important, predictably effective.
In Profiles of the Future by Arthur C. Clarke, his third law, an inquiry into the Limits of the Possible, stated, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”.
For those of you who don’t know who Arthur C. Clarke is, he is an inventor and prolific science fiction writer who conceived the idea of putting satellites into a stationary orbit around the earth making them ideal telecommunications relays. Because of his vision, you enjoy cell phone communication and GPS tracking today. In addition, he was nominated for a motion picture Academy Award for writing and collaborating with the director, Stanley Kubrick, of “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
The point is that technology and those that ponder, postulate and propose it can appear to many as either a dreamer or a visionary, a science fiction writer or a scientist. Ultimately, it is whether the technology can be demonstrated, duplicated and found predictably effective. If this is so, the person and the technology will be hailed as a visionary. If not, than they and it will be branded as folly.
Science comes from the Latin word, scire, which is “to know”. We commonly understand science to mean knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through the scientific method.
The scientific method as conceived of by Francis Bacon, an English philosopher in the 17th century, was the methodical observation of facts as a means of studying and interpreting natural phenomenon. His method was a reformulation and his reaction to the “all too fanciful” guessing and to the mere citing of existing authorities of the time. Bacon’s method is commonly referred to as the “empirical method”. Empirical means originating in or based upon observation or experience.
Because Bacon’s method was a reaction to the system in place at the time, it was criticized for disregarding the theory and systems in place. Think where we would be today if people did not challenge the theories and systems in place. After all, progress is best exemplified by the fact that theories and systems are leapfrogged based on subsequent discoveries. These discoveries are often based on empirical observation.
Nutrition Response Testing is such an empirically based technology that is systematic, duplicatable and, most importantly, predictably effective. Welcome to the leading edge technology in “health” care today.
What Is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a breakthrough technology that reveals the “missing piece,” the key to solving your health concern. By accessing the autonomic nervous system (ANS), critical information about your bodily functions is discovered. Autonomic means “occurring involuntarily.” Bodily functions like eye blinking, heart and breathing rates, digestive metabolism, immune response, hormone regulation and so forth are regulated by the ANS.
There are two controls to the ANS: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Think of them as our body’s accelerator and brake — our “go” pedal and “whoa” pedal! When our bodies are healthy and in balance, these systems function properly and in tune with one another — the sympathetic dominates when we are active, the parasympathetic when we are resting. These regulators are responsible for healthy function including our ability to heal. It is when there is an imbalance that we experience symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, allergies, acid reflux, high blood pressure, chronic pain, immune deficiencies, headaches, migraines and the like. Think of these symptoms as “check engine lights” or “alarm bells.” These imbalances can be corrected safely, naturally, and effectively by accessing the ANS using Nutrition Response Testing.
The technique is Painless, Powerful and Personalized. A practitioner uses his/her hand, pressing lightly on a patient’s acupuncture points, reflex locations, or body organs while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group. In this way (1) we identify the stressors adversely affecting your organs or glands, (2) we identify their priority, and (3) we determine the corresponding dietary changes and tools to correct your imbalance(s).
It bears repeating that we pinpoint the correct whole-food supplements, homeopathics and/or herbs for your body and recommend needed dietary and lifestyle changes. The result is a personalized nutritional healing program that addresses your unique imbalances and corrects your body’s operation. Our goals are the same as yours: achieving good health and feeling good again — safely, naturally, and effectively. By following your personalized Nutrition Response Testing healthcare program, you will experience and sustain better health. It’s that simple!
What Is The Autonomic Nervous System a.k.a. ANS?
Autonomic means “occurring involuntarily.” Bodily functions like eye blinking, heart and breathing rates, digestive metabolism, immune response, hormone regulation and so forth are regulated by the ANS. There are two controls to the ANS: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Think of them as our body’s accelerator and brake~ our go pedal and whoa pedal! When our bodies are healthy and in balance, these systems function properly and in tune with one another — the sympathetic dominates when we are active, the parasympathetic when we are resting. These regulators are responsible for healthy function including our ability to heal. It is when there is an imbalance that we experience symptoms such as allergies, acid reflux, high blood pressure, chronic pain, headaches and the like. Think of these symptoms as “check engine lights” or “alarm bells.” These imbalances can be corrected safely, naturally, and effectively by accessing the body’s innate intelligence through the ANS.
How Do We Access The ANS?
We use Applied Kinesiology, commonly known as muscle testing. It involves using the practitioner’s hand, lightly pressing on your body’s different acupuncture points or reflex locations while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group (see the video on the home page). This highly effective method of evaluation gives the practitioner essential information about what your body says its requirements are to effect powerful changes towards normal function. Book learning and clinical experience, which is the sum total of theoretical and educated knowledge can clearly help us get close to what may be required to effect the solution to your health concern. However, what separates Nutrition Response Testing from most other holistic health treatment strategies is the critical information obtained from the body’s own innate intelligence providing the ‘missing pieces’. With these pieces your health puzzle can be made whole and your body becomes fully functional.
Where Did Nutrition Response Testing Originate?
Nutrition Response Testing, was developed by Freddie Ulan, D.C., N.D., C.C.N., and Lester Bryman, D.C. It is based on decades of successful clinical outcomes helping sick people restore their health naturally—without drugs, without surgery, non-invasively, and often relatively rapidly using a natural approach. It combines knowledge of acupuncture, the Oriental medical system, with the breakthroughs of applied and clinical kinesiology developed by George Goodheart, D.C., and Alan Beardall, D.C. Nutrition Response Testing utilizes the most workable advancements and refinements in the healthcare field, including that of two notable medical researchers, Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., Ph.D., and Yoshiaki Omura, M.D. In this system we do not “diagnose” or “treat” diseases. Instead we use revolutionary tools along with traditional diagnostic procedures that allow the trained practitioner to obtain a highly dependable assessment of a patient’s current health status. This assessment combined with an understanding of anatomy, physiology, neurology, kinesiology, and biochemistry allows us to actually correct the underlying root causes of disease rather than simply suppress its symptoms.
Who Can Benefit From Our Nutritional Healing Program?
Men, women and children! Anyone who wants to improve their health — or maintain the good health they currently enjoy. Anyone who wants to lose weight naturally and effectively without drugs or “miracle diets.” Anyone who wants to boost their energy level, curb their sugar or carbohydrate cravings, or reduce or eliminate medications. In other words, anyone who seriously wants to address their body’s “dis-ease” through safe, natural and effective therapies.
What Conditions Can Be Handled Using Nutrition Response Testing?
Here is just a partial list of conditions we address and conquer on a daily basis at AcuNatural Family Healthcare: weight control, fatigue, stress and depression, acid reflux, ADHD, allergies, arthritis, asthma, bloating, high blood pressure, candida, high cholesterol, chronic pain, colds and flu, constipation, diarrhea, food sensitivities, headaches and migraines, heart conditions, IBS~IBD, infertility, menopause and PMS, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, skin/hair/nail issues, tremors — and others.
What Is The Nutrition Response Testing Program? It is an individualized health improvement program designed to restore normal bodily function. The reason we succeed where others have failed is because we access the body’s innate intelligence and combine it with our educated intelligence. We find the hidden health problems ~ the ‘missing pieces’ ~ and effect root cause therapies eschewing the western medical approach of using suppressive therapies like medications and/or surgery.
What Improvements Will I Notice?
Plain and simply~you’ll feel better. You will see dramatic changes toward normalizing your body’s functions. However, it must be emphasized that these changes often occur over a period of months — not days. Read what others just like you have to say after implementing their nutritional healing program in our Testimonials section!
What Will I Experience At The Clinic?
This empirically proven technique allows us to accurately determine what conditions of stress or deficiency are interfering with your body’s natural healing process. You will be tested for six common stressors: food sensitivities, immune challenges, chemical challenges, metal challenge, scars and EMF’s (electromagnetic fields). Next, the priority gland or organ is determined. Finally, dietary changes are recommended along with the appropriate use of whole-food supplements, homeopathics, herbs or whatever other natural therapies may be indicated ~ all based on your unique specific needs. The evaluation is performed painlessly by the practitioner, applying light pressure with his/her hand on reflexes/acupuncture points associated with a specific organ or gland while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group.
What Is An HRV (Heart Rate Variability Test)?
HRV is a fully automatic, noninvasive, computer-based system designed to assess physical fitness and the functional balance of the automatic nervous system (ANS). It is the autonomic nervous system that acupuncture, homeopathy and chiropractic rely on to accomplish changes in bodily function. Clinical tests conducted at Columbia University Medical Center have confirmed this system to be over 95% accurate in its assessment when compared to industry standards. It accurately determines your heart’s ability to respond to daily stress. It also provides a score that reports how healthy you are.
Children and Nutrition Response Testing:
Most people assume that because children are young, they are healthy. This is untrue — and now more than ever. Due to the refined, processed, and adulterated foods we eat, our children are not getting the holistic nutrition they need. How can we provide them with a strong foundation of health with so many nutritional deficiencies present around them? Every child should be evaluated to find the environmental barriers that often impinge on their health. Childhood “dis-eases” need not be a permanent life sentence, and many are simply nutritional deficiencies. Once addressed, the symptoms may improve dramatically or disappear altogether. Please note that we only accept children as clients if at least one parent is actively on their own nutritional healing program. If one parent is actively on a program their children’s service fees are half price. If both parents are actively on a program, services for children under 17 are free. Positive reinforcement is key: you cannot expect your child to do what you won’t e.g. give up junk food!
