It is similar to Applied Kinesiology, which uses the same principles to test illnesses and injuries based on the presence of muscle strength or weakness, which is an indication of the health of the nerve supply.

Dr. Summers uses Nutrition Response Testing as a method of testing individual responses to nutritional food stimulus in the least invasive way possible. The remedy to findings in Nutrition Response Testing are often removal of particular food sources from a diet. If a patient needs to include supplementation into their diet, Enso Chiropractic carries the full line of Standard Process supplements.
