Nutrition Response Testing

Whether we’re aware of it or not, our bodies are under attack on a daily basis – pathogens, food, chemicals, heavy metals and more can prevent us from staying healthy and thriving! But how do we know if we’ve been exposed to these stressors? How can we support our body as it’s working hard to protect us? How do we determine the best supplements to take, foods to eat or lifestyle changes to make?

We’re able to answer these questions using a non-invasive system called Nutrition Response Testing. Based on quantum physics and kinesiology, Nutrition Response Testing is precise and scientific. It’s a way of analyzing the body – using muscle testing – to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural and nutritional means, the body can repair itself to attain and maintain optimum health!

During your appointments, we use Nutrition Response Testing to find imbalances, blockages or weaknesses throughout the body. Then, to correct what is found, we design a unique health improvement program for you using specific nutritional supplements as well as diet and lifestyle changes. By using Nutrition Response Testing, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that is timely, accurate and clinical. It also helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting those needs.

A Holistic Approach

While Nutrition Response Testing provides us with accurate and precise findings, we feel it’s important to utilize multiple techniques and resources so we are able to approach your health from many angles.

Below are some of the additional resources we utilize to dig deeper and potentially identify any underlying and unsolved health problems.

  • Hormone, Saliva, Stool and Hair Testing
  • Heart Rate Variability Testing
  • Autonomic Response Testing
  • DNA Genetic Analysis
  • Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

While under our care, we take all results and information into consideration. Nutrition Response Testing then allows us to monitor exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting those needs in a timely, specific and scientific way. It takes the guessing game out of the equation and guides us towards identifying what your body needs to restore optimal function!


Do you roam the supplement aisles of a health food store feeling clueless and overwhelmed? You buy a supplement thinking it’s exactly what you need and take it for a couple of weeks only to find you’re still experiencing the same symptoms.

Unfortunately, many over the counter supplements are made of poor quality nutrients and contain fillers making them toxic and less potent. These factors are what drive the deceivingly low costs but are actually detrimental to your health in the long term.

Additionally, the ingredients in any given supplement may be ones your body does not need nor want. Nutrition Response Testing takes the guessing game out of the equation. We identify the root cause of a symptom and find the specific nutrient(s) so the body can heal itself. At The Spring, we selectively partner with companies that are committed to producing the highest quality supplements to provide you with quality ingredients to support your body and needs.

What Our Clients Say

“Elke has been a blessing to me. I have had numerous challenges with my internal organs and conventional doctors were not able to diagnose it. Elke’s expert knowledge has not only helped to alleviate the original challenges but also uncover physical concerns that have been underlying for many years. Thank you Elke!”

“I have been sick for almost two years and have seen a variety of doctors who have never been able to treat any of my symptoms. I finally was referred to Elke and she was able to point out many things that were compromising my health. She is so knowledgeable in what she does and has worked wonders for me. I have already started to feel better and have seen great results from the supplements and lifestyle changes she has suggested for me. I enjoy working with her in my struggle to finally be completely healthy again and I know with her by my side that I will! She is a beautiful, caring woman who is not only trying to make you feel better, but also fixing the roots of all the problems you may be having.”

"I used to feel this enormous weight on my shoulders to make all the right decisions for my kiddo’s health and nutrition. While I think MDs are great at emergency care I’ve never felt comfortable putting my kids in their hands when it comes to their nutrition, preventive care or providing a more natural approach when they do get sick. Since the kids have been seeing Ali that weight has been lifted. She is also special when it comes to connecting with kids. Her genuine nature and how she explains things in a way that is easy to understand and makes sense to kids is awesome!"

"I felt an overall sense of not being well, mainly intestinal difficulties daily. My blood sugar levels were really close to diebetic levels, if not over that. After working with Ali for two months I feel really good! I now know what’s causing the intestinal problems and when I avoid that I don’t have problems. I took my blood sugar numbers today and after eating, they were within the normal range and my fasting number was lower than it has been in years - I am very excited about this!"

"I felt a lot of inflammation in my belly, my energy fluctuated a lot and I had very irregular sleep. Overall, my diet seemed off and I was confused as to why I had high cholesterol. After working with the ladies at The Spring, I feel lighter and my mood has improved. The quality of my sleep is much better and my energy is more sustained. I have a better understanding of my nutrition and am happier about my dietary habits."
