Nutrition Response Testing®

Nutrition Response Testing® is a safe, natural, and non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these causes are found and corrected through natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself and maintain optimum health. Nutrition Response Testing® was developed by Freddie Ulan, DC, in the 1990s. It is very precise and scientific and is being used by thousands of healthcare practitioners across the US. 

However, suppose we were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing® before it was explained to you. In that case, you might find it strange or entirely not believable – because it is probably very different from anything you have used or experienced. 

If you want to restore health and longevity, you must understand what Nutrition Response Testing® is and what our recommendations are based on. Otherwise, you are less likely to comply with your program, and you won’t experience the excellent benefits that are routinely attainable. 

Does Nutrition Response Testing® Work? 

Review - J.P.

“What Was It Like Before You Came To See Us?

My reason for coming to the Nutritional Wellness Center was primarily for digestive issues. I experienced severe heartburn daily, relying on over-the-counter antacids on a daily basis. I also had several episodes of diverticulitis. I was unhappy with my weight and unable to lose weight. I had chronic insomnia, sleeping 3-4 hours per night and only getting a full night’s sleep several times per month.

How Is It Now?

For five months I have not taken a single antacid! The very few episodes of heartburn I had in the beginning were easily remedied by apple cider vinegar in water. I haven’t had any heartburn at all in several months, and no symptoms of diverticulitis. My sleep is improving. I have many more 6-7 hour nights and an occasional 8 hours of sleep. Overall I feel much better and have lost 9 lbs. ! J.P

Yes! This technology is being successfully used by thousands of healthcare practitioners across the country, helping hundreds of thousands of patients to overcome a wide variety of health problems and achieve more optimum health. It has been featured in numerous publications, including The American Chiropractor, Chiropractic Economics, and DC Products Review. 

Check out some of the success stories below to get an idea of what this powerful technology can do. 

What is the Nutrition Response Testing® Process? 

In Nutrition Response Testing®, we do not diagnose or treat disease. There are two parts to our process: 

  1. The analysis (the assessment of your body’s current health status) 
  2. The personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition). 

The Analysis

The analysis is done by testing the body’s nervous system. 

Nutrition Response Testing® analyzes different areas on the body’s surface that relate to the state of health and the flow of energy in 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 organs’ functions. 

Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these organs/areas has become extremely useful in Nutrition Response Testing® because they are so accurate! 

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, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, which helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we meet that need. 

How is the Nutrition Response Testing® Analysis Done?

We Don’t Guess, We Test - NY

Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, as in an EKG, the Nutrition Response Testing® practitioner contacts these areas with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area 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 can be affecting your health.

The Personalized Health Improvement Program

Let’s say the liver or kidney areas are active. Then what? Our next step is to test specific nutritional formulas of the highest quality that have stood the test of time and are proven to bring the organ/areas back to strength.

Decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, we can devise a clinically designed program for your body as indicated by this procedure. 

This will be a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule. We have identified the essential first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the organ/area 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. It’s that simple! 

In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom or surgically remove the “offending” organ or malfunctioning part. In Nutrition Response Testing®, we use designed clinical nutrition to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to repair itself.

What are the services offered at Nutritional Wellness Center?

Hi, I am Sophie Alexander, the owner and the lead practitioner at the Nutritional Wellness Center in Ithaca, NY.

We help clients address digestive issues, fatigue, headaches, pain, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalances, sleep issues, and more.

In the office, we use nutrition response testing®. It is a safe, natural, and non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill health.

When these causes are found and corrected through natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself and maintain optimal health.

What is nutrition response testing®?

With nutrition response testing®, we do not diagnose or try to treat disease. We assess the body’s current health status and design a personalized health improvement program.

Nutrition response testing® is done by testing the body’s nervous system. We assess different areas on the body surface that relate to the state of health and flow of energy in every organ and function of the body.

Each area that gives a response represents a specific organ, tissue, or function and indicates the effect of energy or the lack of energy on the body.

By testing these organs and areas, we have a system of monitoring the body. This is extremely clinically accurate, which helps us identify exactly what the body needs.

How does nutrition response testing® work?

Another way of understanding it is to think of someone who has hypothermia. The body draws all the energy and blood circulation from the expendable, peripheral parts of the body, such as the fingers and toes, to protect the core organs of the body.

A similar action takes place with nutrition response testing. When we push on a client’s arm, and they are not under stress, they can resist our pressure.

But say there’s something wrong with the client’s thyroid. We apply pressure to the thyroid, and this stresses it further.

The body draws energy away from the arm to protect the thyroid, and the client can no longer resist our pressure on the arm.

What are the benefits of nutrition response testing®?

We love this system and how quickly, easily, and painlessly it works. Our youngest clients are newborns, and our oldest is 97.

With nutrition response testing®, we can determine what barriers the body is struggling with, causing it to have symptoms.

Examples of these barriers are food sensitivities, chemical and heavy metal toxicities, scars, and immune challenges.

Using nutrition response testing®, we quickly identify the exact barriers to health problems. The body tells us what is wrong and exactly what the solution is.

Our purpose is to help as many people as possible. Be healthier and happier without the use of unnecessary drugs or surgery.

Give us a call today to get to the root cause of your health concerns and reclaim your health.

What is Designed Clinical Nutrition? 

“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (about the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by Nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully). 

In most cases, it is concentrated whole food, in a tablet, capsule, or powder, prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as Nature intended. 

These real food supplements have been designed to match the body’s needs, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing® organs/areas found on your individual Nutrition Response Testing® analysis. These are nutrients you are only not getting or not assimilating into your current diet. 

These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines. Still, it is for sure due, to no small extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today. 

An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex. A “complex” is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic Vitamin A does not contain the whole ” Vitamin A Complex” found in Nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices. 

If one were factually deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, one would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex – not from chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the Vitamin A Complex that has erroneously been labeled as ” Vitamin A.” 

Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. These cannot be used instead of whole food supplements in a designed clinical nutrition program. The label “natural” is misleading when applied to nutritional products, as the FDA will approve such labeling based on a small percentage of naturally sourced components. Such products don’t correct existing imbalances and may introduce new ones. Your vitality and energy are derived from live food. 

Most foods available today are dead or are not foods: boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc. You can readily understand the difference between dead, devitalized pseudo-foods, with synthetic or isolated vitamins on the one hand, and ” Designed Clinical Nutrition” and a diet of real foods, on the other. 

So-called ” scientific research,” done with these shoddy substitutes, repeatedly.” proves” that vitamins don’t do much good for anyone! Can you imagine who pays for these ” studies”? 

There is a Great Deal of Technology and Know-How Behind What We Do

  1. Through an analysis of your body’s organs/areas, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet 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 situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and routines to bring about the best possible results.

Having been designed through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of patients and patients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that using Nutrition Response Testing®; we can evaluate your body’s nutritional needs and devise a program to help your body heal itself. 

Follow UP Visits 

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 client gets a completely individualized program. Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the correct sequence and the right direction at the right time – then the lock opens easily. 

Therefore, since every case is different, following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Response Testing®, even the most complicated cases can be handled.

Total Health Restoration

Is it possible? YES! Your body is always trying to heal itself but it has barriers preventing that from happening.

What are YOUR barriers?

There could be harmful toxic chemicals poisoning your cells. Medical drugs can utterly destroy your overall health and proper function of the intricate systems of your body. You could have heavy metals built up in your tissues that are inhibiting your body’s ability to function.

Of course, there are the typical immune challenges caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Even your scars could be interfering with your body’s nervous system and blocking its ability to communicate and thus control vital functions. Your food choices also play a major role in harming or helping your body in its quest for healing.

These are just some examples of what is stopping you from being truly healthy. With so many possible causes and the amazingly complex ecosystem it’s no wonder traditional medicine takes the easy road of eradicating a symptom with drugs or surgery. We take a different approach as the goal is Total Health Restoration. Using Nutrition Response Testing® we precisely identify your body’s specific barriers and address each one in turn, starting with the primary block to your health and then intelligently tackling each barrier until you have restored your whole health.

There are thousands of books written about healing. However, none of those authors have ever met you! In the incredible sea of information, what applies directly to you? Our Nutrition Response Testing® practitioners can help you identify the exact barriers to your personal health problems. You don’t have to speculate or keep drowning in the ocean of “experts.” You and your body will tell us what is wrong and exactly what the solution is.

It’s a cop-out to think your lack of healing is genetic, personality or age. It may have some impact on your health but the factors you can control are far more important in bringing about Total Health Restoration. Our only purpose is to help you achieve it.
