What is nutrition response testing?

Nutrition response testing is a noninvasive analysis of your health. It allows your provider to identify barriers that prevent you from achieving optimal health and wellness.

Once your Scarsdale Health & Wellness specialist completes nutrition response testing, they can develop a personalized diet and supplement regimen that’s right for you.

During nutrition response testing, your provider locates disrupted energy flow using muscle testing techniques. They press on different areas of your body to detect stressed reflexes and muscle weakness.

By communicating directly with your body, Scarsdale Health & Wellness specialists may avoid lab tests and other diagnostic procedures.

What happens during nutrition response sessions?

During your first clinical nutrition appointment, your provider weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They evaluate your symptoms, heart, and body mass index (BMI), and complete nutrition response testing.

Your Scarsdale Health & Wellness specialist develops a personalized nutrition response plan that might include custom diets, quality dietary supplements, nutrition education, weight loss counseling, holistic pain treatments, and routine follow-up appointments.

Dietary supplements available at Scarsdale Health & Wellness include Standard Process®, Systemic Formulas, Apex Energetics™, Marco Pharma International™, and Energetix® nutritional products.

How often should I schedule nutrition response appointments?

After starting a nutrition response program at Scarsdale Health & Wellness, your provider might recommend weekly follow-up sessions for about six weeks initially. You might begin feeling better in as little as 2-4 weeks.
