Nutrition Response Testing: A personalized natural health improvement program

Nov 30, 2015 11:28AM ● By Gary Gendron

Nutrition Response Testing precisely predicts with certainty what is needed by the body to move to the next stage of improved health. A personalized natural health improvement program, which uses Designed Clinical Nutrition (DCN) and the exact nutrients necessary to supplement the diet, follows an assessment of the body’s health status. These two components can bring about balance and help the body regain the ability to self-correct and heal.

Analysis and Designed Clinical Nutrition

Testing neurological reflexes and specific acupuncture points on the body’s surface provides an energy assessment of how well the organs and systems of the body are functioning. Each NRT reflex corresponds to a specific organ, system or function. The assessment helps to determine the effect that energy or the lack of energy is having on overall health.

Any existing barriers to healing, such as environmental toxins, immune challenges or major food sensitivities, are detected and possible remedies are recommended, based on decades of clinical experience. Correct nutritional supplements and doses are identified, along with specific dietary guidelines to create an individual’s ideal program.

DCN utilizes specific dietary recommendations and whole food concentrates in a tablet, capsule or powder form. Prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that work as nature intended, these are either nutrients missing from the diet or those that the body is not assimilating properly. 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 NRT reflexes.


The NRT system for monitoring the body at each visit aids in the identification of exact bodily needs and how well they are being met. Depending on an individual’s particular situation, specific changes in diet and eating habits, as well as in daily routines, may be required in order to bring about the best possible results.
