Imagine for a second that your baby screams inconsolably for hours on end, you’re not finding support with western medicine, and after tapping into Nutrition Response Testing, your baby is now calm and peaceful and you’ve got your wits about you again. Muscle testing can locate problems in the body such as toxicity, pathogens, or foods, and support you in gently removing them out of the body.
What Can Muscle Testing Help?
Maybe it’s the intense low back pain that keeps you from unloading your car, carrying laundry up the stairs, or wrestling with your 8-year-old. What if that pain pointed to an intolerance to tomatoes and you were able to remedy that with supplementation to boost enzyme production and some food elimination or rotation?
Or suppose the weight you’ve carried for years finally starts melting off just weeks after muscle testing indicates the thyroid (that is showing up as FINE in your blood panels) needs support?
Imagine having hot flashes for 18 years that finally went away after finding a parasite challenge in the liver.
We have seen all of this in our muscle testing practice! Really, the list goes on and on.
This genius work using applied kinesiology (muscle testing) was founded in 1964 by Dr. Goodheart:
“In 1964 Dr. Goodheart made the first correlation between finding a weak muscle using manual muscle testing and then employing chiropractic therapy to make it stronger. Since then he has looked beyond the chiropractic profession to the fields of biomedicine, osteopathy, acupuncture, dentistry, nutrition, biochemistry, and others for methods to increase the health and well being of patients based on using the body itself as a diagnostic tool. Dr. Goodheart had a unique way of looking at a patient’s problem and asking, “Why is that?” This allowed him to correlate many different types of examination and treatment procedures into a unified method of examining and then treating many difficult patients.
Dr. Goodheart wrote many works on Applied Kinesiology, and lectured on the topic often. Among his many professional honors, he was the first chiropractor to serve on the U. S. Olympic Medical Team in 1980.”
What’s even more beautiful is we don’t need the knowledge of chiropractic care in order to apply this technology and implement lifestyle changes based on the results of our findings.
What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a form of muscle testing practiced at My Healthy Beginning. I am trained as a Clinical Master in Advanced Nutrition Response Testing — one of about 1,000 in the nation to hold this title. Ulan Nutrition Systems best describes this form of muscle testing founded by Dr. Freddie Ulan here.
Back in 2011, I found Nutrition Response Testing as a means to not only deal with my own ailing health but to go deeper with my coaching clients when the standard gluten and dairy free diet wasn’t giving us the results we were looking for. I was frustrated as a FirstLine Therapy lifestyle educator, craniosacral therapist, and birth doula feeling limited in how I could support my practice members and knew there had to be a way to more specifically guide them to a path of real health, versus the bandaid offering of our current healthcare system.

What I found blew my mind. I was able to begin implementing Nutrition Response Testing to anyone who walked into my office, regardless of how long their rap sheet of ill health was. We were able to get results every time, so long as they committed to put their butt in the seat for the game of wellness.
Nutrition Response Testing Works IF:
- You’re willing to take responsibility for your own health, whatever state it’s in. It got there because of whatever you did or didn’t do and did or didn’t know
- You’re willing to put in the time and energy needed to work your program. A typical timeframe is nine months, though some cases may take 2 – 3 years depending on your state of health
- You understand that you didn’t get to where you are overnight and we won’t be able to fix your issues within three weeks
- You create a team at home around your health, whether this be your spouse/family member/neighbor/best friend — it’s important to have a sense of partnership
- You are coachable
- You are willing to take on your emotional well-being
