The basic premise of chiropractic is that if you remove interference to the nervous system, the nervous system will then enable the body to heal itself. We learned how to identify the exact subluxation, correct it with a precisely delivered vertebral adjustment, and verify it was corrected. When the patient got up off the table, he was healed. When you checked him the next week, it was holding.
But too often these days, even though chiropractors give the best possible adjustments, the correction doesn’t seem to hold nearly as well as it used to. So, what changed?
D.D. Palmer talked about primary subluxation by injury or accident, and secondary subluxation caused by toxicity, nutritional deficiency and stress. The recurring, or secondary, subluxations were not emphasized in my training, back in the early 1960’s when I went to chiropractic college. Yet the majority of patients we see today are afflicted by them.
Bodies are not healing themselves like they used to because we have a deterioration of the food chain. And we have a huge increase in the intake of those things that literally prevent the body from self-repairing. D.D. Palmer gave us the miracles of chiropractic and laid the groundwork for a science to restore cellular integrity after it was lost through nutritional neglect or toxic damage.
But which body systems are urgently in need of support? What exactly do they need first, and in what dosages?
The answer to these questions required the evolution of a precise testing system, built on the pioneering work of Frances Pottenger in the 1930s, Royal Lee in the 1950s, and a handful of others. The technology is complete, and the results are unvarying given proper training. Qualified practitioners can assess the status of the autonomic nervous system and design a precise nutritional program that will rebuild the compromised systems in the sequence dictated by the body’s needs.
This is what Nutrition Response Testing® does. It provides a reliable way to find the root causes of ill health, especially for tough cases, and a way for practitioners to get the better patient results that they desire.
