Nutritional Response Testing SM 

Nutrition Response Testing SM  is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimal health. It may be quite different from any other healing practice you may have experienced. Through our analysis, we are testing your body's neurological reflexes. It is the nervous system's responsibility to regulate the body's functions for each and every organ, gland, joint, muscle, etc. Energy flows exist between all parts and organs of the body. These flows can become disrupted for a variety of reasons.

Our practitioners will do a full body scan to properly assess each of your reflexes. We do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand and the specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm (which will weaken and cause it to drop). A drop in the arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in the area which can be affecting your health. Once the underlying stress is corrected, this weak muscle response will no longer occur.

Since we directly use the body for analysis versus doing lab tests, it is faster and tends to be just as, if not more, accurate. There are no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, needles or laboratory fees to cover.

Following the exam, you will be given the results in a way you can understand with a specific nutritional program to follow.

Designed Clinical Nutrition

Designed clinical nutrition is a specifically designed nutrition program created from the information your body provides through Nutritional Response Testing SM . The program will include dietary suggestions as well as whole food supplements to aid your body in healing itself.

Your body was created to use nutrition from whole foods to function, regenerate and maintain health. Current food conditions make it next to impossible to get all of the nutritional components your body requires to heal and/or maintain resiliency. Food produced in today's environment is not only grown in deficient soils but may also include heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and pesticides.

Whole foods have undergone very little processing and have been grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics or hormones. The concentrated whole food supplements we use have been prepared by a unique process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components.

Our goal is to have you take as few supplements as possible, with your body being fully addressed and restored at the same time, ¦just as nature intended.

Light (Laser) Therapy

What Is Low Level Laser Light?

Low-level laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise color; it is coherent (it travels in a straight line), monochromatic (a single wavelength) and polarized (it concentrates its beam in a defined location or spot). These properties allow laser light to penetrate the surface of the skin with no heating effect, no damage to the skin and no known side effects. Rather, laser light directs biostimulative light energy to the body's cells which the cells then convert into chemical energy to promote natural healing and pain relief.

The History of Laser Therapy

The word "laser" is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The theory was first described by Albert Einstein (1879-1955) who paved the way for the development of the therapeutic laser. The first low-level therapeutic laser was developed in 1962. By the end of the 1960's, Endre Mester in Hungary was reporting an improved healing of wounds through low-level laser radiation. Since then, scientists and doctors around the world have been using laser light to treat conditions that can affect all age groups.

High Power vs. Low Power Medical Lasers

There are two types of medical laser: high power and low power. High power lasers are used to cut through tissue. Low-level lasers, on the other hand, are used to stimulate tissue repair through a process of bio-stimulation.

What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low-level laser therapy is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. Low-level therapy uses cold (sub-thermal) laser light energy to direct bio-stimulative light energy to the body's cells without injuring or damaging them in any way. The therapy is precise and accurate; and offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions. The energy range of low level laser light lies between 1 and 500 mW (milliwatts), while for surgical lasers the energy range lies between 3000 and 10000 mW.

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low-level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin's layers (the dermis, epidermis and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin) at all wavelengths in the visible range. However, light waves in the near infrared ranges penetrate the deepest of all light waves in the visible spectrum. When low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effective throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.

The Physiological Effects of Low Level Laser Therapy

1. Bio-stimulation (Improved metabolism &  Increased cell metabolism)
2. Improved blood circulation and vasodilatation
3. Analgesic effect
4. Anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous (swelling from excessive accumulation of fluids) effects
5. Stimulation of wound healing

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Benefit Users?

* Relieves acute and chronic pain
* Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
* Increases blood supply
* Stimulates the immune system
* Stimulates nerve function
* Develops collagen and muscle tissue
* Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
* Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
* Reduces inflammation

Low-level laser therapy does not require constant, ongoing treatments, as is often required with traditional chiropractic or physiotherapeutic remedies.

ONDAMED

Website

"This unique technology locates underlying dysfunction as it simultaneously provides a therapeutic stimulus for each patient. ONDAMED's specific pulsed electro-magnetic fields used in combination with Pulse Biofeedback "jump-starts" cellular repair and regeneration.

ONDAMED is a battery-powered biofeedback device that a medical practitioner uses to determine which frequencies of sound, as well as the accompanying weak pulsed electromagnetic fields, cause a response in a patient's autonomic nervous system. Temporary stimulation by these frequencies, combined with the patient's cognitive and non-cognitive participation, promotes relaxation, muscle re-education, and various other prescription uses, such as pain relief, stress relief linked with reduction of inflammation and potential improvement of the immune system.

Therapists throughout Europe have been using ONDAMED for over 10 years with great success. Rolf Binder, the inventor of ONDAMED, has been in the field of Information Technology and Medical Electronics for more than 20 years. Specializing in biophysical medical testing and therapy application, Binder has invented numerous well-known medical devices for German medical equipment manufacturers, including Medtronic."

Massage Therapy

Some experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into: enhanced sleep quality, decreased anxiety, greater energy, improved concentration, increased circulation and reduced fatigue. In addition, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits. In addition, massage has specific physiological and chemical changes that can flow throughout the body, with profound effects. Massage studies has shown the many beneficial effects such as arthritis sufferers noting fewer aches and less stiffness and pain; asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow; burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety; high blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones; premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping; preterm infants have improved weight gain.

Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which ranges from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat post-surgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

Getting a massage can do you a world of good. And getting massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time for massage therapy at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health.

Far Infrared Sauna

Extensive research has demonstrated that the Far Infrared sauna is of most benefit to our body because of its therapeutic and tissue regenerative properties. It is no wonder that doctors and therapists use far infrared heat to effectively treat muscular pain, rheumatism, skin problems and sports injuries. The infrared energy is so safe that it is used in hospitals in incubators to warm newborn babies.
The infrared sauna benefits include the following:

  • Fat-burner: during your relaxing and rejuvenating infrared sauna session, your body sweats and burns calories.
  • Pain-reliever: the increased blood circulation improves nearly any condition. The delivery of oxygen-rich blood to all muscles and joints stimulates the healing process.
  • Detoxification: the deep penetration of the infrared rays into your body and the resonance with your body tissue cells ensures quick removal of body toxins through your body's natural sweat reaction and does it very efficiently.
  • Skin regeneration: Infrared waves penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and assist cell replacement and deep cleansing of your skin. It purges clogged pores of deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells. The increased blood circulation encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to your skin that helps relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis and burns. Saunas will also encourage the healing of lesions and minor cuts.
  • Stress relief: the warm soothing effect of the radiation will provide immediate benefit to tightened and knotted muscles, leaving the user feeling refreshed and invigorated.
  • Cardiovascular fitness: The sauna enhances blood circulation, stimulating the perspiration process and in turn increasing the body's heart rate and overall cardiac output. This achieves a similar cardiovascular conditioning as vigorous exercise. It has been shown to help people with sedentary lifestyles to strengthen their hearts.
  • Boosted Immune System: the infrared heat strengthens the body's immune response, resulting in increased resistance to disease. Recent studies show cold and flu symptoms are reduced dramatically if treated early with infrared heat. Infrared sauna benefits include strengthening of your immune system by raising your white blood cell count.ť
