A. Reset the adrenal glands and the General Adaptive Syndrome – The adrenal glands, which produce adrenaline and cortisol, support and control many of the body’s functions. Chronic stress (physical, chemical or emotional) has been found to cause the adrenal glands to enlarge, the thymus gland and lymph nodes to shrink and to lead to gastrointestinal irritation and ulceration. This is known as the General Adaptative Syndrome. The adrenal glands ‘drive’ many of the body’s key functions and so restoration is essential. Testing of adrenal glands is performed via either muscle response testing or lab testing.
B. Repair nutrition for organ or system weakness – The heart, liver, lungs, small and large intestine and stomach can all suffer from types of dysfunction or weakness leading to a number of problems and symptoms. Testing using either muscle response testing or lab studies gives us an idea where the weaknesses are and nutritional supplements, such as Nutri-West, can be used to strengthen the organ weaknesses. These supplements contain specific minerals, herbs, glandular extracts, and natural substances in synergistic formulas that are specialized for each individual organ dysfunction.
C. Remove Infective organisms – Many chronic health problems are associated with the body’s inability to either remove infective organisms or their overgrowth. Viruses, bacteria, yeast, and parasites can all linger in the body, affecting many different systems. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, auto-immune diseases and cancer are examples of conditions associated with infective organisms in the body. Lab studies or muscle response testing can reveal what infective organisms are in your system. Several herb and natural substances are available which have been found to eradicate the infective organisms.
D. Replace enzymes and/or HCLDigestive enzymes – These are produced by the body and are essential for proper digestion. Enzymes also catalyze (enable or promote) all chemical reactions in the body. Our modern diet can cause deficiencies in enzymes and is one of the main reasons why many people have digestive disorders today. This deficiency causes the body’s chemical reactions to slow down and as a consequence people feel sluggish. Natural plant enzymes are recommended to help correct this. Furthermore, lab and muscle responses testing can determine if you are producing sufficient Hydrochloric acid which is produced by the stomach lining and is necessary for proper digestion.
E. Re-inoculate the bowel flora – The large and small intestine normally harbor millions of ‘good’ bacteria which help fight invading organisms detrimental to the body. These ‘good’ bacteria also aid the digestive process and protect the lining of the intestines and they produce some essential substances such as certain vitamins. Many digestive and other conditions are caused when the ratio of bad to good bacteria gets too high. Probiotics, contain 400 different strains of good bacteria, are prescribed to counteract this imbalance.
