Nutrition Response Testing®

Nutrition Response Testing® is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body and organ function to determine the underlying causes of ill or poor health by analyzing toxicities and deficiencies in the body. Nutrition Response Testing is what Healthy Out West is all about! With Nutrition Response Testing®, we treat the root of the issue - not just the symptoms. This technique is a form of applied kinesiology or otherwise known as muscle testing.

  Non- invasive

No needles, no blood work, or pin pricks.

No needles, no blood work, or pin pricks. You can keep your clothes on! The entire process is done with a gentle touch and light pressure on your arm and acupressure points.



You are what you eat!

"You are what you eat!" Everything you eat is either helping you or hurting you. Supporting your health or creating disease. The problem is there is so much confusing information out there about what is "healthy". That's where Response Testing® can clear away the confusion. You will know exactly what foods to stay away from. And what supplements will benefit you and your health!


Whole Food Supplements

At Healthy Out West we use whole food supplements and herbs that come from nature. Nothing synthetic or artificial. We create a custom nutritional program for each individual.

What Exactly Is Nutrition Response Testing®?

You May Find It Mysterious and Strange

What is Nutrition Response Testing®? In order for you to begin in the healing process we need to make sure you understand what Nutrition Response Testing® is right from the start. Nutrition Response Testing® is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing® without an explanation, you may find it strange and mysterious. We felt similarly when we first encountered it, and therefore have studied it extensively to see if it really worked. We are happy we did, because it has helped us greatly improve our own health, and with Nutrition Response Testing® we may be able to help you improve yours. It is important for you to understand Nutrition Response Testing®, because it is the foundation upon which we base our recommendations, and if you don't understand it, you may be less likely to follow through with our advice. To put it simply, if you don't follow through with our advice, you won't get well, and if you are not going to get well, why begin in the first place. The good news is that by using Nutrition Response Testing® most of our clients experience 90% or better improvement in their overall health.

Efficient & Effective

Made Just For You

Designing a program that fits your personal nutritional needs gives your body the support it needs to heal quickly. It's like having the perfect multivitamin made just for you!

First the Analysis

Getting Started

In medical practice there are two key parts, the diagnosis (naming the disease or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.). In Nutrition Response Testing®, we do not diagnose or treat disease. However, we also have two parts, the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).

The analysis is performed simply by using your body's own muscle group in combination with acupressure points to determine where the underlying weakness is in the body and then, using the same technique, we design a natural health improvement program to help you.

The analysis is done through testing the body's neurological reflexes and acupressure points. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old.


Nutrition Response Testing® is a study of how the different points 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. Since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points has become extremely useful in our practice, because they are so accurate.

How do we do the Nutrition Response Testing® body
to get this information?

Muscle Testing

If we were to hook up an EKG machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during the procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the EKG record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means. In Nutrition Response Testing®, instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the practitioner contacts these points with his/ her own hand. With the other hand he/ she will test the muscles of your extended arm. If the reflex being contacted is active, the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which may be affecting your health.

The Personalized Health Improvement Program

Just For You!  

Our next step is to test specific high quality nutritional supplements against those weak areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.

Decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step of supporting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.

With Nutrition Response Testing® we use designed clinical nutrition to address the causes of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to heal and support itself. 

Having been designed through decades of clinical use of tens of thousands of clients, and on clients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Response Testing® is capable of evaluating and possibly solving your health concerns.

Set Your Health Free!

Like a Combination Lock

A complete Nutrition Response Testing® analysis can be done on each client on each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layer of dysfunction, so these also can be addressed and evaluated. This is where the comparison of the onion and layers comes in. Getting to the root of the issue, very much like a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time, and then the lock opens!

By following the correct sequence with Nutrition Response Testing® you aren't guessing your diet or supplements. With the Nutrition Response Testing® we can determine the correct food supplements for you, designed for you! To give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying well!

Many people we see at Healthy Out West have eaten themselves into their current state of ill health, to one degree or another. Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances lead to the breakdown in resistance, or immunity and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses, chemical, microscopic or otherwise. 

The good news is, that with the right protocol, eliminating the wrong foods, there's a very good chance you can reverse this process and take back control of your health!

The Right Protocol


With the right protocol and knowing which foods to avoid there is good news! You can be on your way to a healthier you! It's important that in this journey, YOU are the one responsible for your own health! You can count on us to do everything in our ability to help you achieve your health objectives and help you get to a healthier, happier life!

The Short Story

Yes! Taking Back Your Health Is Possible!

Is it possible? YES! Your body is always trying to repair and  heal itself, but it has barriers preventing that.

What are YOUR barriers? That's exactly what we do at Healthy Out West, find out what is keeping  you from taking back your health!

There could be harmful toxic chemicals poisoning your cells. Medical drugs can utterly destroy your overall health and proper function of the intricate systems of your body. You could have heavy metals built up in your tissues and inhibiting your body’s ability to function. Of course, there are the typical immune challenges caused by bacteria, viruses and parasites. Even your scars could be interfering with your body’s nervous system and blocking its ability to communicate and thus control vital functions.

Your food choices play a major role in harming or helping your body in its quest for healing. Our food testing at Healthy Out West can be life changing. When you take the "No foods" (which are different for each individual) out of your diet, it can drastically change your health.

These are just some examples of what is stopping you from being truly healthy. Unlike traditional medicine, we are looking for the root cause and not just treating the symptoms.

We take a different approach as the goal is Total Health Restoration. Using Nutrition Response Testing® we precisely identify your body’s specific barriers and address each one in turn, starting with the primary block to your health and then intelligently tackling each barrier until you have restored your whole health. A good analogy of this process is the onion. The peeling away of the onion, the next layer.


There are thousands of books written about healing. However, none of those authors have ever met you! In the incredible sea of information, what applies directly to you? Our Advanced Clinical  Nutrition Response Testing® practitioners can help you identify the exact barriers to your personal health problems. You don’t have to speculate or keep drowning in the ocean of “experts”. You and your body will tell us what is wrong and what the solution is.

It’s a cop-out to think your lack of healing is genetic, personality or age. It may have some impact on your health but the factors you can control are far more important in bringing about Total Health Restoration. Our Practitioners and the team at Healthy Out West's only purpose is to help you achieve it.
