Short and sweet; Drug companies are and have been trying to expand their user base like any company looking for more profits and they will continue this practice as long as they are for-profit entities. When I first read 20 years ago that they wanted to lower the age of prescribing Prozac to 2 year olds without research it made me sick! How do you know if a 2 year old is clinically depressed? If they are get them outside in the sunlight and start playing games of tag with them but don’t put them on an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and screw up their developing brains forever! I guess the Ritalin and Adderall scripts were not flowing fast enough for them.
Kids for decades now have been told they were “hyper” and since two full time working parents could not spend enough time to deal with an “active” child drugs must be the answer. The teacher who now has to buy pencils for a class that has too many students in it due to budget cuts says, “Mrs. Jones little Tommy is acting up and not paying attention. He doesn’t seem to understand the materials… I think he is “Hyper” or ADD and needs to see a doctor for medicine to calm him down”. Now 30 years later putting millions of kids on Class 2 narcotics same as cocaine and meth -(Oh the doctor didn’t tell you that when they prescribed Ritalin for little Johnny?) and teen suicides are higher than ever and we have teens killing people because they were bullied or broke up with their girlfriend badly…. This NEVER happened before we started putting kids on drugs. Guns have been around for centuries so it’s not the access to guns. It’s the messed up brain chemistry of developing minds from being medically prescribed psychotropic “legal” drugs for years.
Now there are other factors that go deep in our society and have to be worked out for sure but if you ruin a brain all the gun control, less screen-time and social parenting reform will not do a darn thing. Get the kids off meds, watch what they eat and keep them active and away from the screens as much as possible. Oh yea get their spines checked for nervous system interference and have them seen by the chiropractor regularly.
The saying in my office since I adjusted my first newborn back in 1988 has been, “It’s much easier to grow a healthy child than it is to fix a broken adult.”
Nutrition Response Testing (Nutritional Muscle Reflex Testing) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if I were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing before it was explained to you, you might find it strange, or simply not believable – only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before.
When I first saw this type of work being done, I had the same reaction: “Hmm, what is this strange stuff?”
No one was more skeptical than I was. As a result, I studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real. And I sure am happy I did because it has greatly helped me, my family and so many of our patients attain greater health.
If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is and what our recommendations are based on.
That way you will be more likely to follow through and do what is needed in order to get well.
What is Nutritional Muscle Testing Based On?
The analysis is done by testing neurological reflexes and specific acupuncture points on the body’s surface.
This analysis gives us an energy assessment of how well the organs and systems of the body are functioning.
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.
Since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, these reflexes and acupuncture points have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so reliable!
Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex corresponds to a specific organ, system, or function. It helps us determine the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on your overall health. Nutrition Response Testing also provides a system of monitoring your body at each visit. This has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Customized Nutrition for Person
A custom designed nutrition program utilizes specific dietary recommendations and whole food concentrates in a tablet, capsule or powder. They are prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as Nature intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing reflexes.
These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, but it is for sure due, in some large extent, to the lack of quality of the foods commercially available in grocery stores and most restaurants today.
An example of a whole food could be carrots.
Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex. A “complex” is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic vitamin A does not contain the whole “Vitamin A Complex” found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices.
If one actually were deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, one would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex – not from chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the Vitamin A Complex that has erroneously been labeled as “Vitamin A.”
Designed Clinical Nutrition is not ‘over-the-counter’ vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not “genuine replacement parts.” They lack many of the essential elements normally present in WHOLE foods. Most store bought vitamins (1) can cause other health problems; (2) create additional deficiencies and imbalances; or (3) simply don’t work because they do not contain all of the factors found in nature.
Please ask about our DVD by Dr. Kydonieus:
“The Vitamin Difference,” an in-depth explanation of vitamins and other nutritional supplements.
We help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet, in order to bring about balance and better health. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to “supplement” your current diet. That’s why they are called “food supplements.”
Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet & eating habits, and in your daily routines, in order to bring about the best possible results.
