Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)
A body scan is performed through hands-on techniques and a computerized Heart Rate Variability Test to determine if the autonomic nervous system is working correctly, and which organs are priority in needing nutritional treatment. Precise whole food supplementation is determined for improving health and organ function and relieving symptoms.
Nutrition Response Testing The body has the potential to fully repair itself, given the right nutrients.

What is Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)?
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health.
Our clinical proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced.
We will have some questions for you before and during the testing. The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback needed. We use the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health changes…exactly as Nature intended.
The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently. This feedback is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where everything else has failed.
What are we testing for?
Through the NRT analysis, we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing – as it is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ. The testing includes organs, glands, joints muscles, etc.
These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body and then the findings are analyzed. In addition, we use a computerized test called a Heart Rate Variability tests that will give us information about your general state of health and fitness, your adaptability to stress, your prognosis, and how your autonomic nervous system is performing.
How do we get the body’s “reflex” information?
Energy flows exist between all parts and organs of the body. These flows can become disrupted for a variety of reasons. This disruption is easily discovered with our testing.
As a Nutrition Response Testing practitioner, Dr. Koop will run a computerized HRV test and do a full body scan to properly assess each of your reflexes.
Dr. Koop will do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand, and contact the specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm (which will weaken and cause it to drop). A drop in the arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in that area which can be affecting your health.
Once the underlying stress is corrected, this weak muscle response will no longer occur.
Since we directly use the body for analysis, (versus doing lab tests) it is faster and tends to be just as (if not more) accurate. There are also no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, nasty needles or laboratory fees to cover.
Following your consultation you will be given the results in a way that you can understand, will a specific nutritional program to follow.
How do I know which supplements are right for me?
After Dr. Koop identifies the underlying reason(s) your body is creating symptoms, we can isolate and verify the precise whole food supplements (and quantities) your body needs to resolve its problems. Our goal is to have you take as few supplements as possible, with your body being fully addressed and restored at the same time.
What are “whole foods”?
“Whole foods” is defined as “food that has undergone very little processing and has been grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers”. A good example is carrots. Carrots are rich in vitamin A complex. A “complex” is something made up of different parts which work together. Synthetic vitamins do not contain the whole complex (as found in Nature).
If testing indicated a vitamin A deficiency, we would look for a whole food high in vitamin A complex (and carrots would be a likely source). A supplement rich in this complex would then be included in your program. We pride ourselves on only using the highest quality whole food supplements available.
Whole food supplements are entirely derived from specific whole foods, organically grown and prepared in such a way that preserves their vital enzymes and vitamins; making them the optimum vitamin-mineral products.
Now is incredibly concentrated form, your body can get complete nutrition from this small tablet! By restoring the nutrition on which your body was founded, it is possible to enable your body to heal itself…just as Nature intended.
Can’t I just eat better?
There has been a drastic decline in the quality of food over the past 70 years, resulting in a nation of sick people who are dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. Your body’s function is founded on nourishment from the environment (which until recently did not include heavy metals, toxic chemicals and pesticides).
Current food conditions make it next to impossible to get all of the nutritional components your body requires to heal and/or maintain resiliency.
How soon will I see an improvement?
Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in as little as 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional programs.
Is it important to stick to the plan?
Generally chronic health problems do not suddenly develop overnight. They develop over a long period of time (often years) with improper diet (which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances) and environmental influences. All of which have gotten you into your current health condition.
Therefore, the sooner and more thoroughly you implement your program, the sooner you will start to see results. While on your program, if you continue those same old habits and routines that contributed to your current condition, your body’s condition may not improve as you hope. Total commitment to your program is strongly urged.
What are my chances for recovery?
Our long-term experience in a wide variety of cases tells us the first thing we must determine is whether or not you are a “Nutrition Response Testing Case”. If someone is NOT a “Nutrition Response Testing Case” then it is unlikely that Nutrition Response Testing will ever help you. However, if you ARE a “Nutrition Response Testing Case”, then in our experience, it is our belief that nothing else will help you as much.
What happens next?
While you are on your own designed clinical nutrition program, you will continue on your health recovery process. We will continue to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed when additional layers show up. This procedure will assist you to attain the maximum possible health benefits and get the real underlying health issues handled.
