I am a formerly sick and miserable person who has found a way to get my health back and permanently eliminate my so-called incurable disease and conditions. I escaped conventional medicine and found an effective system of natural full-spectrum health care called Nutrition Response Testing (NRT). I remain a member of PatientsLikeMe purely to inform people about this feild and the fact that they don't have to "cope with" or "manage" their diseases... they can get rid of them. See my full bio for all the info.
I am an athletic, naturey, and unique person. I like kayaking, hiking, having campfires, eating good food, being healthy, in-line skating, swimming, being environmentally-friendly, and traveling to tropical islands. At times, I have felt healthy, but I have suffered from IBS since I was a baby, followed by a recent occurance of IBD and some other conditions that had significantly reduced my quality of life.
I am currently in the process of restoring my health through a system of treatment called Nutrition Response Testing (NRT). After 1 1/2 years of increasingly successful results, it has become clear to me that anyone can permanently cure any disease and condition through this system of treatment. My profile now exists to inform people of the existence of NRT and how to get it if they want it.
To appreciate NRT, it is necessary to understand these obvious, but little-acknowledged facts:
The body is always trying to heal itself.
It is designed to succeed if it is provided with the correct nutrients.
Disease is a result of the deprivation of these nutrients.
Nutrition Response Testing is a system of determining exactly what nutrients in what doses a person's body needs to recover from a given condition. The most important quality of the system is that it is designed to ensure that every body, as long as it contains a nervous system, can report its own needs to the practitioner. There is no wondering where this therapy will take you, and to what level you "get" to heal. As long as you are willing to follow the recommendations of the program, you will get your cure. Not remission, not managing, not coping; cure. NRT docs can't legally say it, but I can. Cure is what they do. And, I think it is complete crap that people don't know this.
Practitioners trained at the "Advanced Clinical" level receive their certification from a school called Ulan Nutrition Systems, Inc. (www.unsinc.info). It is a newly-organized system, but the concepts behind it are rooted in Applied Kinesiology and date back to Ancient Chinese Medicine. To do this program, you go to the website, find a practitioner in your area, and call them to set up your initial consultation. TWhen you go to the appointment, they will evaluate your problems and what supplements will solve them through muscle-testing. They manually push on your arm while putting pressure on certain "nodes" on your body. There are no lab tests or invasive procedures. If you decide to do the program, you will keep going back occasionaly to get muscle-tested and "update" your supplement regimen, as the body will change its needs as it goes through layers of rebuilding and healing.
The supplements NRT provides are raw, organic, unprocessed, intact nutritional complexes-essentially whole food- mainly from a company called Standard Process. They contain extracts and factors that could never be found in the modern diet, such as those from raw organs, rare plants, and live bacteria(probiotics). They are concentrated to a high level necessary to make up for lost time, nutritionally. I've done the investigating, and they are undeniably the best you can get, in stores and through practitioners.
Your program will probably go on for at least 2 years before your body has fully resolved its problems. Weird things can turn up like internal fungus, bacteria, heavy metals, and parasites. Although they may be subclinical (don't show up in lab tests), they are collectively huge contributors to weakened organs and bodily systems. It is kind of gross to find out these things are in you, but exciting because you are getting rid of them. You simply take the correct supplement to resolve the issues as they arise. At some point, you will start decreasing your supplements and experience the elimination of your condition/disease. Eventually, you will not need the program anymore, although most people will still go to an appointment yearly and take a few supplements to maintain optimal health.
You can even make this doctor your primary care physician, as they can treat acute illnesses like colds and flu without antibiotics or harmful vaccines. They will even help you heal from injuries by providing your body with bone, nerve, soft tissue, and anti-inflammatory supplements. Most of them are chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, applied kinesiologists, etc. as well, and can determine if you could use supplementary care to help you recover. NRT docs are definitely full-spectrum health care practitioners, and they have successfully helped me and people I know with everything I've mentioned.
The only barriers keeping people from doing NRT seem to be financial cost and doubt. I am a poor and unemployed ex-pre-med student, so I sympathize. To overcome these, I asked a family member to fund my recovery, then told myself I would do the program for 3 months as a trial period. If it didn't work, I would have taken a healthy risk, but not lost that much. It turned out to work, and now I have saved my life.
Don't be paralyzed by the mess of choices within the feild of natural and alternative medicine. I promise you that NRT is an effective, safe, and legitimate system that will permanently resolve all diseases and conditions, even ones conventional doctors tell people are incurable or have genetic components. Even in the rare exception of a 100% genetic condition, I believe there to be no better way than NRT to optimize your health within your limits. You joined this site due to the value of word of mouth, so take my recommendation! I can't stand that people are suffering when I know this information. I plan to only log on a few times per year to update progress, but would enjoy getting a message from anyone who has followed through with my advice.
Good health to you! You can do it.
