Nutrition Response Testing®
Dr. Stewart combines the thorough chiropractic history and exam with Applied Kinesiology, Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, genetic/saliva/serum/urine testing, and/or Nutrition Response Testing to determine your nutritional needs.
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
NRT is very precise and scientific. The analysis is done through testing the body's autonomic nervous system. We analyze different areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ.
Each area that gives a response 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 organs/areas in a non-invasive way, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit. It has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Clinical experience tells us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the organ/area to be active in the first place. In standard medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the "offending" organ or malfunctioning part. In NRT we use designated clinical nutrition to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
Designated Clinical Nutrition uses concentrated whole food, in a tablet, capsule or powder, and are prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as nature intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing organs/areas that were found on your individual analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
Deficiencies can be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, as well as the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today. Your vitality and energy is derived from live food. Most foods available today are dead, or are not really foods at all: boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc. You can readily understand the difference between dead, devitalized pseudo-foods, with the synthetic or isolated vitamins on the one hand, and "Designed Clinical Nutrition" and a diet of real foods, on the other.
Your Specific Program:
1 - Through an analysis of your body's organs/areas, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet, in order to bring about balance and better health.
2- We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to "supplement" your current diet. That's why they are called "food supplements."
3 - Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and in your routines, in order to bring about the best possible reslults
4 - An analysis of your active organs/areas will be performed on each follow up visit. Often these follow up visits also reveal additional layers of dysfunction. These can then be addressed in the correct sequence for your body.
Each patient gets a completely individualized program.
