What is Nutrition Response Testing?

Nutrition Response Testing and Dr. Michael Lebowitz's protocol are advanced analyses and personalized health improvement programs, using designed clinical nutrition and supplementation, to identify underlying imbalances in the body. The goal is to detoxify and to improve the function of your body by supporting the body's natural healing ability.  Nutrition Testing provides a glimpse into the body's "internal computer" as well as an awareness of the body's deficiencies. The analysis is done through muscle testing, neurological reflex testing, and acupuncture points.

Nutrition Response Testing is an offshoot and hybrid of Applied Kinesiology which is a diagnostic tool and health care system used by medical doctors, homeopaths, naturopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists and many other alternative-care practitioners.  The underlying principle is that the body is run by chemical and electrical signals that are sent from (and back to) the brain via the spinal cord and the fluid nervous system.

There are normal and abnormal reflexes that are controlled by the autonomic nervous system. A muscle may react weak, hypertonic or neutral depending on what is being tested in close proximity to certain acupuncture points on the body. If these specific reflexes are reacting abnormally, it gives the practitioner information on what is causing problems for a person or what may help a person to get better.

The fundamental principle of Nutrition Response Testing and Dr. Michael Lebowitz's protocol is to figure out if there is toxicity and food sensitivities that are contributing to a person's symptoms. When the body is supported through correcting deficiencies and eliminating toxicity, many symptoms improve. This form of nutrition testing incorporates:
  • Your Reflexes
  • Your Autonomic Nervous System
  • Your Acupuncture Points
  • Your Muscle Response
A patient lies face up on a table, and then homeopathic vials are placed near specific acupuncture points. The brain responds by sending a biofeedback signal to a muscle. The body's reflex response to each vial is determined to be normal, or abnormal.

These are just some of the issues that are supported through Nutrition Response Testing and Dr. Michael Lebowitz's protocol:
  • Immune System Health Issues
  • Fungal Problems
  • Parasite Infestation
  • Food Allergies
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Severe and Extreme Fatigue
  • Skin Rashes
  • Active Scar Repair
  • Digestive Problems and Disorders; Severe Abdominal Pain
  • Candida
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) also known as acid reflux disease.
  • Bacterial and Viral Issues
  • Chemical and Metal Toxicity Problems
  • Support for organs and glands
  • Correction of vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Know what supplements that you are taking that are actually helping you
  • Cholesterol balancing
  • Chronic pain
  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Weight Management
  • Sleep Imbalances
The objective of the technique is to detoxify, fortify, and create awareness and balance in a patient's system. The fundamental principle of Nutrition Response Testing is that a symptom can be caused by any imbalance in the body. Once the imbalance is treated properly, the symptom will disappear. Nutrition Response Testing removes any guesswork on what supplements a patient should be taking, by revealing the client-specific nutritional protocol that will heal the patient on a cellular level.

It was my own health issues that led me to becoming a Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner in NYC. About four years ago I was working long days as a traditional chiropractor. I realized that I was constantly exhausted; the only thing I had energy for was my work, and even that was a struggle. I had been using nutritional supplementation in my chiropractic practice and was very interested in pursuing it further.

My initial test lead me to the discovery that I had parasites, fungus, and heavy metal mercury toxicity. I have to say that I felt a little embarrassed, since I always tried to set a healthy example for my patients.  I was put on an extensive supplement regimen with amazing results:
  • The first month I felt horrible but understood that I was detoxing
  • The second month I noticed a significant improvement in my energy levels
  • About three months later I actually felt better than I had ever felt
I knew that I had stumbled upon something that had the potential to make a lot of sick people well. I became an expert on Nutritional Response Testing and have a proven history of helping many people overcome numerous issues.  It has become one of the most satisfying aspects of my career.

I use many different nutritional supplements depending on an individual needs. These are the companies that I am currently using in my practice.
  • Douglas Laboratories
  • Energetix
  • Epigenetics
  • FlorAlive
  • N.E.T.
  • Nature's Answer
  • Nutri West
  • Pure Encapsulations
  • Standard Process
  • Supreme Nutrition
  • Thorne
The wide choices from many different companies give me the opportunity to give a person the greatest possibility for improvement. Certain people do better with homeopathic supplements, while others do better with single herbs. We all have very individual requirements.

Standard Process uses only whole food organic plant and animal products. Their patented protomorphogen extracts help regulate cellular metabolism and healing of the organs and cells of the body. All of the companies that I use are generally sold only through health care practitioners and have very strict compliance's and regulatory standards.

A Patient Case Study for Nutrition Response Testing

Carly was a 37-year-old graphic designer who was referred to me by her acupuncturist, who thought maybe I could help her with an unconventional problem that wasn’t showing improvement. Carly had lost her sense of smell, which had started about 3 years before she walked into my office. Carly indicated that her smell had gone from what she considered a good sense of smell to no sense of smell, within a one-month period.
I performed nutrition response muscle testing on Carly and she muscle tested positive for food sensitivities to dairy and soy. She also tested for a barrage of heavy metals, specifically, cadmium, beryllium, and aluminum. The nutritional supplements Chelaco from Standard Process, Takesumi and Camu from supreme nutrition, and Metalchord from Energetix, all blocked the metals and negated the positive muscle test.

After Carly's initial visit, she returned three weeks later and said that her sense of smell was unchanged that she still felt like she had no sense of smell. Carly came in for her third visit, after being on Chelation supplements for six weeks. She reported that she started to sense that her smell was improving five weeks after starting the protocol.

At her fourth visit, which fell on her nine-week  point of taking the nutritional supplements, Carly was exuberant. She reported that her smell was eighty percent better. She was excited to smell again, and couldn’t believe that she was experiencing all the good and not so good smells of New York City once again.

During this visit, she no longer muscle tested for any of the heavy metals. They were not registering at all, which implied that she had cleared them from her body. After six months of starting her protocol, Carly had regained one hundred percent of her smell back. She continues to report improvement in other symptoms that she struggled with for years, like severe PMS, muscle cramps, and fatigue.
