Nutrition Response Testing

Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive and very precise method of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health using your body’s own neurological reflexes or reflex points to identify weaknesses found in organs, systems or functions which could be caused by a variety of things which can include food sensitivities, immune challenges such as parasites, bacteria, viruses, fungus, and heavy metals, as well as toxic chemicals. Imagine that your body could tell you exactly what it needs and the most effective sequence in which you should address those needs – that’s what Nutrition Response Testing allows your body to do.

The Diagnosis and The Treatment

In a conventional medical approach, there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the disease or syndrome) and the treatment which usually consists of drugs, surgery, or radiation, to attack or suppress the symptom, or to remove or destroy the offending organ or part. In Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease – but we also have two parts: the analysis (the assessment of your body’s current health status) and designed clinical nutrition (a personalized natural health improvement program). The analysis tests your body’s own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. The neurological reflexes are part of the nervous system that regulates the functions of every organ.

(The following is a quoted excerpt, pgs. 68-72, from the book THE GREAT HEALTH HEIST by Paul Rosen, J.D., L.Ac. Published by Warren Publishing, Inc.)

Nutrition Response Testing is a technology that obtains critical information about bodily functions from the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Autonomic refers to something that occurs 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:

  1. Sympathetic
  2. Parasympathetic

Think of them as our body’s accelerator (sympathetic control) and brake (parasympathetic control) – our “go” pedal and “whoa” pedal. When our bodies are healthy and in balance, these systems function properly and are in tune with one another; the sympathetic dominates when we are active, the parasympathetic when we are resting.

These regulators are responsible for healthy functioning, including our ability to heal. It is when there is an imbalance, blockage or interference 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 ANS.

The 3-P Method and the 5 Stressors

The 3-P Method refers to the fact that the Nutrition Response Testing technique is Painless, Powerful and Personalized. This empirically proven technique allows us to accurately determine what stands in the way between you and better health. In fact, Dr. Ulan’s discovery of the barriers’ to healing he called stressors… opened the door to the most effective, most economical, easiest-to-comply with, lowest-pill-count program ever. “And that, says Dr. Ulan, “is the key secret to our success.” (Dr. Freddie Ulan of Ulan Nutritional Systems, Inc., Clearwater, FL, is the founder of Nutrition Response Testing.)

When undergoing Nutrition Response Testing you will be tested for these five common stressors:

  1. Scars
  2. Food sensitivities
  3. Immune challenges
  4. Chemical challenges
  5. Metal challenges

These stressors can and will prevent your body from healing. Many of you have experienced this already without perhaps realizing it. Have you ever failed to respond to perfectly good treatment? Have you ever experienced the opposite result of perfectly good treatment? Has your condition “plateaued” or gotten better and then worse? If so, these are all indications that your body isn’t fully open to healing. Nutrition Response Testing allows the practitioner to test you using the “stressors” to reveal and then remove these barriers.

Next, specific organ reflexes are tested (such as liver, heart and bowel) as well as glandular reflexes (like prostate, thyroid and adrenals). Then the priority reflex is determined. This step is critical to Nutrition Response Testing because pinpointing the priority results in having to take fewer supplements, achieving a lowered pill count and a phenomenon I call “whole-body healing.” Have you ever gotten temporary relief or relief of some but not all of your symptoms? If so, then you haven’t achieved whole-body healing.

Based on this determination, we will recommend specific whole-food supplements and/or herbs as well as dietary and lifestyle changes. This is all done painlessly, with the practitioner lightly pressing on different acupuncture points or reflex locations on the body associated with specific organs or glands, while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group.

The result is a personalized health improvement program that addresses your own body’s imbalances and corrects its operation. Our goals are twofold: achieving good health and feeling good again – safely, naturally and effectively. You are bound to get results as long as you follow your personalized program.

Accessing the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

We use a standardized form of applied kinesiology, commonly known as muscle testing. In the hands of thoroughly trained health professionals, this highly effective method of evaluation gives the practitioner essential information about your body’s requirements for a return to health. Book learning and clinical experience, which are the sum total of theoretical and educated knowledge, can clearly help us get close to what may be required to pinpoint the solution to your health concerns. But what separates Nutrition Response Testing from most other treatment strategies is the critical information obtained from the body itself or, as we say, accessing the body’s innate intelligence in order to find the precise answers to your health concerns.

Special Note to Nutrition Response Testing Patients

As a new patient, during your first visit the doctor will “muscle-test” you and gather information about you to determine whether or not you are a candidate for Nutrition Response Testing. The fee for the first visit includes the second visit called “Report of Findings” which occurs a few days after your initial visit. The Report of Findings includes your health improvement plan if the doctor determines that you are a nutritional case. It also will entail the projected time frame for healing, the primary requirements for you to succeed in improving your health and the cost of the program.
