Autonomic Response Testing (ART)
Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a highly sensitive and accurate form of bio-feedback testing developed by Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D. Ph.D, and Louisa Williams, DC ND. It looks for the stressed condition of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) called 'blocked regulation'. Blocked regulation refers to the inability of the ANS to self-regulate and is commonly caused by 7 factors. These include: undiagnosed food allergies, heavy metal toxicity, chemical toxicity, chronic unresolved infections, scars, temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, unresolved psycho-emotional stress, and electromagnetic stress. ART marries together techniques from many disciplines including Applied Kinesiology and biophoton physics and is carried out by noting changes in muscle strength while an organ, gland, substance, or function is being tested.
How is ART beneficial?
Before incorporating ART into my practice, the methods I used to determine the body's needs were based on a person's symptoms, expensive lab work and my knowledge of biochemistry, physiology and nutrition. Now with ART, it is possible to quickly, accurately and comprehensively assess the root causal factors of your health problems and come up with a tailor made individualized protocol.
- Find out what is causing a long standing health issues and walk away with a specific, effective protocol.
- Don’t waste any more money or time on things that may not work or may even be bad for you; often the supplements people are on are unsuitable for them.
- Save hundreds and thousands on lab tests that may or may not give you any information about what is going on with your health. For instance, most standard tests for Lyme disease have negative results because Lyme is located in the nervous system and is not easily detected.
