Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a biofeedback enhanced physical exam which uses changes in muscle tone as primary indicator.
ART assesses the body through the autonomic nervous system (ANS) by observing how it responds to introduced stressors. Since the ANS is in direct contact with every cell, organ, tissue, muscle, and system in our body, the amount of information that can be gained through ART goes beyond any blood test. You not only find out which organ or system of the body that is struggling, you also find out why and what nutritional intervention that is needed.
Autonomic Response Testing is often effective when other conventional and alternative treatments fail and is effective for most chronic and acute illnesses. ART is just one of the functional assessment tools used by The Karlfeldt Center along with conventional medical tests and sound naturopathic judgment to develop a restorative and effective nutritional strategy.
