Nutritional Response Testing (NRT) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of health complaints and natural remedies for such complaints. NRT relies on using biological and electrical processes of the human body through the lens of the biofield and your Autonomic Nervous System. The NRT Practitioner will interact with subtle energies of your biofield and nervous system to determine areas and causes of stress on your organs, organ systems, and the nervous system itself. Biofield interactions can influence and be influenced by biological and biochemical pathways, cellular and neurological processes that modulate activities/flow of information across multiple levels of organ systems. Providers in our clinic utilize the biofield and nervous system to holistically alleviate illness and maintain health and wellness.
Myokinesthetic System (MYK) is a global assessment that detects compensations within the nervous and organ systems. These compensations appear as postural abnormalities and may result in physical impairment. The goal is to evaluate and treat the cause of the posture imbalances to thereby alleviate the associated symptoms not only of musculoskeletal issues but chronic organ-specific ailments, and more importantly to restore health. MYK works alongside NRT (Nutrition Response Testing) and chiropractic care to focus on the nervous system while working on the muscular system. The combination of Chiropractic, NRT/MYK, and Functional Medicine creates a multifaceted, powerful system of healing.
