Muscle Resistance Testing- A Non-Invasive, Painless Way To Better Understand A Body’s Deficiencies
Why use MRT or Applied Kinesiology?
The stresses of everyday living and the constant consumption of devitalized food frequently leads to a state of full body distress, which can
result in clinical or subclinical nutritional deficiency. This nutritional status creates a need for supplementing the diet with vitamins and minerals or can manifest into chronic problems.
What vitamins and minerals am I deficient in? How much does my body need?
This is where MRT (Muscle Resistance Testing) comes in! Marge Pickering Picone brings over 30 years of nutritional practice and study to help you determine your nutritional needs. Muscle Resistance Testing (MRT) is a form of (A.K.) Applied Kinesiology formulated in the 1960’s by Dr. George Goodheart. Applied Kinesiology is both a Science and an Art. MRT brings a simple and useful nutritional screening evaluation of the body’s possible requirements. The muscle response test is an indicator or gauge that will give a reading on the body’s inner functioning of a particular nutrient. As it has developed, Applied Kinesiology has shown relationships between muscles, nerves, nutrients and organs. This allows for a more complete evaluation of a person’s current health status.
MRT is a simple, painless procedure where the arm muscle is used to indicate which nutrients your body may require. Like a scale, MRT uses the strength of the test muscle response to determine the answers and amounts. If the test muscle remains strong and steady when adding the milligram amounts to the body, you need that specific amount to increase that nutrient supply to the body. If after adding amounts to the system, the muscle response weakens, it means your body has been overloaded. While this test may seem to be focused around the physical strength of a muscle, it is absolutely not. No matter a person’s musculature ability, a body’s deficiency weakens the circuit and the muscle gives way quite suddenly.
A program is determined by your personal deficiencies revealed in the MRT as well as the symptoms a person has been experiencing and wants to eliminate. The MRT is repeated 3 to 5 weeks later and again at 10 to 12 weeks where a maintenance program is then set up to accommodate the lifestyle of the individual. Additionally, the body changes with the seasons, therefore it is recommended that the MRT is repeated every 5 months or less to help maintain a person’s optimal health goals.
