Multi-Mineral Snack Mix; 
Make your own shelf-stable Paleo trail mix in batches and keep on hand for quick grab and go snacks. Add selenium-rich Brazil nuts, zinc-rich pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, cashews (all soaked and dehydrated, preferably), and some organic mulberries, goji berries or raisins. 
Here is a recipe for Trail Mix; 
About 1 cup each of Raw Walnuts, Almonds, Cashews and Pumpkin Seeds 
Sea Salt
Purified Water
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Organic Raisins 
1/2 Cup dried Apples
1/2 Shredded Coconut
1/2 Cup dried berries (blueberries or raspberries)
1. Rinse the nuts.   Put each kind of nut in a Mason Pickling Jar a little more than half full.   Add a teaspoon of Sea Salt to each.  Fill with Purified water to the top.  Cover loosely with a paper towel and let soak for 12 hours.
2. Rinse the nuts and drain the water out.   Spread them over a clean white towel to pick up excess moisture.   Mix the nuts with the coconut oil and sea salt.   Spread them on a cookie sheet or two and put in the oven at the lowest setting possible.   Most ovens don't go below 170 degrees and that's fine.  Ideally it would be around 150 degrees.   Let dry in the oven for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.
3. Take out of the oven and let cool for a about 15 minutes.  When cool put in a Ziploc bag or jar.
4. Mix the Coconut and dried Fruits with the nuts and refrigerate to preserve longer.   
NOTE - If you have a dehydrator, you can dehydrate your own fruits to add to the mix but if not, you can buy dried fruits at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.  The brand that I prefer is called "Just Strawberries" or "Just Raspberries" at Trader Joe’s.   It does not contain anything else but the dried fruits without sulfites.

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.
