Frequently Asked Questions
What is NRT?
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a study of how the different acupuncture points and neurological reflexes on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
NRT has two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition). At Passport 2 Vitality, we do an analysis and then design a natural health improvement program to restore and revitalize your health. Analysis During the analysis, we use acupuncture points and neurological reflexes to make a health assessment.
Each NRT reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing the NRT reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body during each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate in identifying exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need. Personalized Health Improvement Program
After completing the analysis, we test specific, high quality, whole food and/or herbal formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength. We have found that the correct nutritional supplementation, as indicated by this procedure, in conjunction with a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, corrects the underlying deficiency or imbalance causing the reflex to be active. By following the personalized program you are well on your way to restoring true health and normal function.
Clinical Nutrition A program of clinical nutrition may be prescribed to supplement your diet. These are not “over-the-counter” vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical factions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not whole food, and the body does not recognize them as anything that is beneficial or truly usable. These vitamins lack the essential synergistic elements normally present in whole foods. The supplements we use are whole food and therefore have full complexes of vitamins (unlike the synthetically produced pharmaceutical grade or over-the-counter type). They are whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as nature intended. In addition to supplementation, you may be asked to make some specific changes in your diet, eating habits, and routines in order to bring about the best possible results.
