INTRODUCTION TO NUTRITION TESTING:
Welcome to the leading edge technology in "health" care today. If you have wondered why you have tried and failed to restore your health, you are about to find the 'missing piece' to the puzzle. Read on and find what you have been looking for in restorative and preventative healthcare.

Nutrition Testing is an empirically based technology that is systematic, duplicatable and most important, predictably effective.

In Profiles of the Future by Arthur C. Clarke, his third law, an inquiry into the Limits of the Possible, stated, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from MAGIC".

For those of you who don't know who Arthur C. Clarke is, he is an inventor and prolific science fiction writer who conceived the idea of putting satellites into a stationary orbit around the earth making them ideal telecommunications relays. Because of his vision, you enjoy cell phone communication and GPS tracking today. In addition, he was nominated for a motion picture academy award for writing and collaborating with the director, Stanley Kubrick, of "2001: A Space Odyssey".

The point is that technology and those that ponder, postulate and propose it can appear to many as either a dreamer or a visionary, a science fiction writer or a scientist. Ultimately, it is whether the technology can be demonstrated, duplicated and found predictably effective. If this is so, the person and the technology will be hailed as a visionary. If not, than they and it will be branded as folly.

Science comes from the latin word, scire, which is "to know". We commonly understand science to mean knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through the scientific method.

The scientific method as conceived of by Francis Bacon, an English philosopher in the 17th century, was the methodical observation of facts as a means of studying and interpreting natural phenomenon. His method was a reformulation and his reaction to the 'all to fanciful' guessing and to the mere citing of existing authorities of the time. Bacon's method is commonly referred to as the "empirical method". Empirical means originating in or based upon observation or experience.

Because Bacon's method was a reaction to the system in place at the time, it was criticized for disregarding the theory and systems in place. Think where we would be today, if people did not challenge the theories and systems in place. After all, progress is best exemplified by the fact that theories and systems are leapfrogged based on subsequent discoveries. These discoveries are often based on empirical observation.

Nutrition Testing is such an empirically based technology that is systematic, duplicatable and most important, predictably effective. Welcome to the leading edge technology in "health" care today.

WHAT IS NUTRITION TESTING? Nutrition Testing is a technology that reveals the "missing piece," the key to solving your health concern. By accessing the autonomic nervous system (ANS), critical information about your bodily functions is discovered. Autonomic means "occurring 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: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Think of them as our body's accelerator and brake --- our "go" pedal and "whoa" pedal! When our bodies are healthy and in balance, these systems function properly and in tune with one another --- the sympathetic dominates when we are active, the parasympathetic when we are resting. These regulators are responsible for healthy function including our ability to heal . It is when there is an imbalance that we experience symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, allergies, acid reflux, high blood pressure, chronic pain, immune deficiencies, headaches, migraines 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 using Nutrition Testing.

The technique is PAINLESS, POWERFUL and PERSONALIZED. A practitioner uses his/her hand, pressing lightly on a patient's acupuncture points, reflex locations, or body organs while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group. In this way (1) we identify the stressors adversely affecting your organs or glands, (2) we identify their priority, and (3) we determine the corresponding tools to correct your imbalance(s).

We then pinpoint the correct whole-food supplements and/or herbs for your body and recommend needed dietary and lifestyle changes. The result is a personalized health improvement program that addresses your own body's imbalances and corrects its operation. Our goals are the same as yours: achieving good health and feeling good again --- safely, naturally, and effectively. By following your personalized Nutrition Response Testing program, you will experience and sustain better health. It's that simple!

WHAT IS THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM?
Autonomic means "occurring 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: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Think of them as our body's accelerator and brake~ our go pedal and whoa pedal! When our bodies are healthy and in balance, these systems function properly and in tune with one another --- the sympathetic dominates when we are active, the parasympathetic when we are resting. These regulators are responsible for healthy function including our ability to heal. It is when there is an imbalance 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.

HOW DO WE ACCESS THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM? We use Applied Kinesiology, commonly known as muscle testing. The technique is PAINLESS , POWERFUL and PERSONALIZED . It involves using the practioner's hand, lightly pressing on different acupuncture points or reflex locations on the body while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group. This controversial but highly effective method of evaluation gives the practitioner essential information about what your body says it's requirements for a return to health are. Book learning and clinical experience, which is the sum total of theoretical and educated knowledge can clearly help us get close to what may be required to pinpoint the solution for your health concern. 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 it's innate intelligence in order to find the precise answer to your health concern.

WHERE DID IT ORIGINATE? Nutrition Testing, was developed based on decades of successful clinical outcomes helping sick people restore their health naturally---without drugs, without surgery, non-invasively, and often relatively rapidly. It combines knowledge of acupuncture, the oriental medical system, with the breakthroughs of applied and clinical kinesiology developed by George Goodheart, D.C., and Alan Beardall, D.C. Nutrition Testing utilizes the most workable advancements and refinements in the field, including that of two notable medical researchers, Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., Ph.D., and Yoshiaki Omura, M.D.  In this system we do not "diagnose" or "treat" diseases. Instead we use revolutionary tools along with traditional diagnostic procedures that allow the trained practitioner to obtain a highly dependable assessment of a patient's current health status. This assessment combined with an understanding of anatomy, physiology, neurology, kinesiology, and biochemistry allows us to actually correct the underlying causes of disease rather than simply suppress its symptoms.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM OUR NUTRITIONAL HEALING PROGRAM? Men, Women, Children! Anyone who wants to improve their health --- or maintain the good health they currently enjoy. Anyone who wants to lose weight naturally and effectively without drugs or "miracle diets." Anyone who wants to boost their energy level, curb their sugar or carbohydrate cravings, or take less medication. In other words, anyone who seriously wants to address their own body's "dis-ease!"

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN IT ADDRESS? Weight control, fatigue, stress and depression, acid reflux, ADHD, allergies, arthritis, asthma, bloating, high blood pressure, candida, high cholesterol, chronic pain, colds and flu, constipation, diarrhea, food sensitivities, headaches and migraines, heart conditions, IBS~IBD, infertility, menopause and PMS, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, skin/hair/nail issues, tremors --- and others

WHAT IS THE NUTRITION TESTING PROGRAM? It is an individualized health improvement program designed to restore normal bodily function. The reason we succeed where others have failed is because we access the your body's innate intelligence and combine it with our educated intelligence. We find the hidden health problems!

WHAT IMPROVEMENTS WILL I NOTICE ON YOUR PROGRAM? Plain and simply~you'll feel better. You will see dramatic changes in your functional illness. However, it must be emphasized that these changes often occur over a period of months --- not days. Read what our patients say in our Testimonials section!

WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE AT YOUR CLINIC? This empirically proven technique allows us to accurately determine what conditions of stress or deficiency are interfering with your body's healing process. You will be tested for five common stressors: food sensitivities, immune challenge, chemical challenge, metal challenge and scars.

THE WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM: No single dietary approach fits every person --- which is why so many diets fail us. Personalized programs with regular follow-up testing and evaluations is what is needed. Indeed, this is the most critical factor for success --- because as your body changes, so does its needs. When your body finds its balance with good nutrition, whole-food supplements, essential minerals, and exercise, you will experience amazing things! Come and experience the healthy balance and harmony you have dreamed about --- especially if you have been discouraged with other approaches.

THE PURIFICATION PROGRAM: If you know you are unhealthy and do not know where to start, try our Purification Program. It is just like cleaning out your garage or your closet --- it is so satisfying. Take everything out, throw away the junk, reorganize the good stuff, and make things clean and tidy. The Purification Program is especially important for clients with multiple digestive symptoms, allergies, and food sensitivities.

THE CHILDREN'S PROGRAM: Most people assume that because children are young, they are healthy. This is untrue --- and now more than ever. Due to the refined, processed, and adulterated foods we eat, our children are not getting the nutrition they need. How can we provide them with a strong foundation of health with so many nutritional deficiencies present around them? Every child should be on a nutritional program and, just as with our adult clients, our programs are specially designed to address the personalized needs of your child. Childhood "dis-eases" need not be a permanent life sentence, and many are simply nutritional deficiencies. Once addressed, the symptoms may improve dramatically or disappear altogether. Positive reinforcement is key: you cannot expect your child to give up junk food if you don't!
Next, the priority problem is determined. Finally, nutritional whole-food supplements or herbs are recommended to support your specific needs. This is all done painlessly by the Doctor, applying light pressure with his/her hand on reflexes/acupuncture points associated with a specific organ or gland while simultaneously checking a strong muscle group.

Testimonials

I was referred to Hesselberg Chiropractic from some friends at work. I had been suffering from a pain that went down my left leg all the way to my foot. This pain made my job as a postal worker very difficult to do day after day.
