Looking for a great way to sneak more superfood liver in your diet?  The mock-Polynesian recipe of Rumaki – chicken livers and water chestnuts wrapped in bacon is a great way. Opt for coconut aminos in place of the soy sauce and coconut sugar in place of the brown sugar. 
When it comes to liver, it’s a food that people either love or hate. But one thing is certain, when liver comes from animals raised on a clean natural diet, it can be one of the most powerful superfoods around. Liver is packed with nutrients, including a powerhouse nutrient called choline (we have this in Standard Process tablets) 
Choline helps your body detoxify and absorb more nutrients. It prevents fat from accumulating in your liver as well. 
Here is a recipe for Rumaki 
3 tbsp soy sauce (Coconut Aminos recommended) 
1 tbsp brown sugar (Coconut sugar recommended) 
4 chicken livers, cut into thirds (from pastured chickens) 
3 water chestnuts, quartered 
4 strips bacon, cut into thirds 
1 (1”) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped 
1. Whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger in a small bowl. Add chicken livers and water chestnuts and toss to coat; place in refrigerator to let marinate for 1 hour 
2. Heat oven to 425oF. Strain liver and chestnuts, reserving the marinade. Pour marinade into 1-quart saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat; set aside 
3. Place 1 slice of bacon on a cutting board, then top with 1 piece of liver and 1 water chestnut. Wrap bacon around liver and chestnut. Skewer bacon in place with a toothpick. Repeat process with remaining livers, water chestnuts and bacon. 
4. Transfer Rumaki to a foil-lined (parchment recommended) sheet tray and bake, basting occasionally with the marinade, until bacon is golden brown, about 25 minutes.

It 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.

Quite frankly, 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.

Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. To put it simply, if you don't follow through, you won't get well. And if you are not going to get well, why do it in the first place?

The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% and better range. The only reason we are here is to help you get well. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing is right from the start.

Let's get started

In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the “disease” or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.).

In Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease - but we also have two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).

Simply put, first we do an analysis, and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.

First the Analysis

The analysis is done through testing the body's own neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. 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.

Nutrition Response Testing is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.

Interestingly, since the human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points have become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate!

Think about it

Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.

Doesn't this sound like something you would want for yourself in order to predict, with certainty, what is needed and wanted by the body to get you to the next stage of improved health?

How do we access the Nutrition Response Testing™ reflexes in order to get this information?

If I were to hook you up to an electro-cardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right?

What is actually happening during this procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.

Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing. Instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing doctor contacts these points with his/her own hand. With his other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the reflex being contacted is active, the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
