Muscle Response Testing
I use a bio-feedback technique in my nutritional consulting with people called Muscle Response Testing (MRT). It’s based on the fact that when God designed all matter, including our bodies, He did so out of atoms. An atom is an electrical unit, actually–a nucleus with electrons buzzing about it generating electricity….bio-electricity. Your body is like a big flashlight battery…you’re generating bio-electricity. Thus your heart beats. Thus your brain can send and receive signals from throughout the system, and from outside itself. Cool, ey? Indeed.
Anyhow, as a practitioner of MRT we can use your body as its own battery tester to identify what’s strong or weak in the system, then identify what sorts of nutritional supplements might have the right bio-electric signature to help strengthen what’s weak. They, too, like all matter, are made of atoms and thus vibrating with bio-electric energy. In the same way one can test to see how various food and drink substances impact the bio-electric energy of he body.
Thus when you come to see me in my office I’m dealing with the physics of your body. Accupuncture and chiropractic flow from the same science, as do the EKG machines in the ER at the local hospital where if you were having a heart attack they’d hook you up to the machine and measure the bio-electric energy of your heart. An MRI machine where you can pick of energy from all parts of the body flows from this same underlying physics.
It’s really a fun and useful tool, is MRT. Everything that is, is vibrating, has its own bio-electric signature, and thus has a potential impact on the energy of your body. I have folks bring with them any foods they might be wondering about, supplements, toilet trees, and medications. As to the meds I can’t (and never do) tell a person not to take something they’ve been prescribed, but we can see how it’s impacting their system.
Anyhow, that’s all I do. That’s my tool. If we’re doing a phone or e-mail consultation rather than an office visit, I’m gathering details on your symptoms. Twenty five years of using MRT on in-office clients have taught my much as to what nutritional weaknesses are indicated by specific symptoms. I then make suggestions based upon what supplements I know test well to address that pattern of deficiency.
I don’t diagnose disease, nor put a label on symptoms, but basically help to bring back into nutritional balance the system that God designed.
One of my great passions in all this is the continual pursuit of finding things readily available to you on the market that will help to address each nutritional need in your system. I don’t pay any attention to studies and articles and marketing hype….I simply get stuff and test it on in-house clients. In my office the body is always the boss. This approach always answers a ton of questions.
