FAQ – Nutrition Response Testing℠

How can Nutrition Response Testing℠ help me?

We often treat patients who have seen many doctors and healthcare practitioners, some over the course of many years. They are really sick of being unwell. And time after time, we discover underlying causes that other practitioners have missed, using a simple testing procedure called Nutrition Response Testing.

Nutrition Response Testing℠  is a system of analyzing neurological reflexes and acupuncture points to detect nutritional imbalances and possible causes of poor health.

During the analysis the practitioner will test your reflexes for specific organs and tissues that are not functioning properly. After diagnosing the problem areas, we create a customized clinical nutritional program based on the exact needs of your unique body chemistry. This includes precisely tailored dosages of any necessary support. You may be surprised that we often eliminate supplements that you are already taking that are not helping, and even hampering your progress.

At Paramount Wellness we utilize only the highest-quality, clinically-proven whole food supplements, specially processed to preserve all of the active enzymes, co-factors, and other vital components. We only prescribe from the most advanced, progressive supplement companies with real science and clinical research behind their products.

How does Nutrition Response Testing℠ get results?

Nutrition Response Testing often allows us to deliver breakthrough results, even to clients who have been chronically ill for many years. We utilize NRT to identify:

  • -Toxicity (metal, chemical and radiation)
  • -Candida and parasitic infestations
  • -Hidden bacterial and viral infections
  • -Primary reactions to foods, chemicals and other substances
  • -Weak and malfunctioning organs
  • -Nutritional deficiencies

You will also discover that your customized mix of nutritional support provides significant relief from your symptoms while under our care.

Why heal your body through nutrition?

At Paramount Wellness one of our primary focus is to provide you with the nutrients that your body no longer receives due to the lack of nutrients in available foods.

Many of these foods are:

  • -subject to agricultural practices designed to cut costs and mass produce food (i.e. GMO foods)
  • -grown in nutrient depleted (& sometimes toxic) soils
  • -produced using food manufacturing models based on cost cutting, mass production and increasing shelf life for foods
  • -nutrient depleted, antibiotic & hormone-laden
  • -fast food, prepackaged and processed

“We have drifted into this deplorable position of national malnutrition quite inadvertently. It is the result of scientific research with the objective of finding the best ways to create foods that are non-perishable, that can be made by mass production methods in central factories, and distributed so cheaply that they can sweep all local competition from the market. Then, after there develops a suspicion that these “foods” are inadequate to support life, modern advertising steps in to propagandize the people into believing that there is nothing wrong with them, that they are the products of scientific research intended to afford a food that is the last word in nutritive value and the confused public is totally unable to arrive at any conclusion of fact, and continues to blindly buy the rubbish that is killing them years ahead of their time.”

How is our approach to nutritional healing unique?

Using specific whole food supplements to facilitate natural healing & vitality.

At Paramount Wellness we help you restore your health and vitality through a nutritional program that is specific and unique to your body’s needs.

We use a system called Nutrition Response Testing™ for diagnosing and dosing whole food supplements that can be used to detoxify and restore the body to optimal wellness. We work in conjunction with other healthcare providers and have helped support patients struggling with:

  • healthy weight management
  • chronic allergies

  • pre-menstrual syndrome
  • fertility

  • and much more

If you are being challenged with a chronic condition and want a better solution you must experience this system.

Why are you here?

  • -You may have one or more health conditions that won’t go away.
  • -You have visited doctors or alternative medicine practitioners but didn’t get the results you expected.
  • -Your health conditions are adversely affecting your quality of life, your career, family, and/or finances.
  • -You realize that these conditions will only continue to get worse unless the root cause is found and corrected.
  • -You want to feel more vitality in order to live your best life.

What is tested?

We are testing your body’s neurological reflexes- which tells us how effective your nervous system is doing at regulating your body’s organs and functions. These reflexes correlate to major organs and  follow along functional pathways that map along major arteries, blood vessels, and fascial planes and have been known to exist for over 3,000 years.

Poor diet, stress, and trauma are factors contributing to these pathways getting disrupted. When these pathways are obstructed disease and/or symptoms can present. These disruptions are easily uncovered with testing.

Why Whole Food Supplements?

Not all supplements are created equal. We use whole food supplements as a main component to helping people heal from the inside out. One of the primary suppliers of these supplements is Standard Process, a company founded in 1929 by Dr. Royal Lee.

Paramount Wellness incorporates many of Dr. Royal Lee’s philosophies and nutritional scientific breakthroughs into our practice through the use of these products. Dr. Lee’s theory on vitamins and supplements is summarized by Dr. Mark Anderson here:

“The Lee Philosophy of Nutrition states that a vitamin as it appears in nature is never a single chemical, but rather it is a group of interdependent compounds that form a ‘nutrient complex’ so intricate that only a living cell can create it. And just as no single component of a watch keeps time, no single compound in a vitamin complex accounts for the vitamin’s nutritive effect in the body. Only through whole, unprocessed foods can the synergistic effect of a true vitamin be delivered.”

Whole food supplements provide COMPLETE nutrient sources that the body needs, not just fragmented isotopes.  These high quality products combined with the Nutrition Response Testing method allows us to precisely identify nutritional sources & dose you according to your body’s needs.

What can I expect from Nutritional Healing?

Healing through nutrition involves basic diet changes and supplementation to that diet. Nutritional recommendations vary from person to person. It may take a few weeks to discover what your body likes the best. When we figure out what’s best for you, you will feel better, your weight will normalize, and you will function better.

If you have been ill for a long time give adequate time to recover and achieve health. For example, if you have been ill for twenty years, it may take six months to two years to recover. There is a real difference between what it takes to heal and just covering up symptoms with drugs.

Although every case is unique, most patients report significant health improvements within 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are from those who have closely adhered to the recommended nutritional program and visit schedule. Your progress will continue to be monitored and your program will be adjusted as you recover and additional layers appear- ultimately revealing and addressing root causes and restoring health naturally over time.

With allopathic medicine a disease is identified and a specific protocol is used. Healing is different. There is no single plan or protocol that will effectively treat everyone.

We treat patients, not conditions. We give you what you need to restore your health.

Working with an advanced trained Nutrition Response Testing℠ practitioner ensures you receive comprehensive and specific corrective recommendations with supplements and gradual diet modifications. The practice of rational intervention is a strategy to not only resolve specific symptoms, but to also increase vitality and joy. Most of our physical conditions respond and may even fully resolve with specific nutritional support.

We encourage you to include nutritional evaluation as a part of your whole person care by contacting us for an appointment. It is good to feel well and vitalized! Our lives depend on this.

How do I get started?

During your appointment we will scan your body to assess each of these reflexes. You will be asked to extend your arm and contact the specific reflex area with the other hand. I will make contact with your extended arm and apply slight pressure. If the tested reflex is stressed your extended arm will go weak. This drop in your arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in the reflex area that can be affecting your health.

Once the issue is addressed with the appropriate nutritional supplements the weak muscle response will no longer occur. Because we are using the body for analysis versus doing expensive or invasive lab tests, it is faster and often times more accurate.

Upon conclusion of your session you will receive the results of the testing in a way you can easily understand with a specific nutrition program to follow.

photoThe first visit (“Initial Consult”) lasts about one and a half hours. You will complete a health history, a symptom survey and Nerve Express test.  From there, Erika will analyze your organs and body through Nutrition Response Testing℠ procedures. The fee for the first visit includes the Report of Findings which occurs on the second visit and is also one and a half hours in length.

If Erika determines she can help you this will result in a positive Report Of Findings and supplement/herbal recommendations on the second visit.
