What is Contact Reflex Analysis?

Contact Reflex Analysis, also known as CRA, is a simple, safe, natural method of analyzing the body's nutritional needs. CRA is not a method of diagnosis. It is a means by which a practitioner uses the body's reflexes to accurately determine the root cause of a health problem.

Many times the symptoms of a health problem are treated while the actual source of the problem continues to go undetected. For example, headaches are treated with aspirin, coughs are treated with cough medicine. If these symptoms persist, expensive tests are run and stronger medications are prescribed. But the question still remains. What's causing the headache? What's causing the cough?

There is hope. CRA is different. CRA quickly and accurately uncovers the root of the health problem and provides the practitioner with answers for correcting it.

CRA is also a marvelous preventative technique used to find a problem before it becomes a full-blown health issue. Find it early and correct it.

How Does It Work?

Hundreds of miles of nerves carry electrical energy and connect with every organ, gland, muscle and tissue. There are approximately 75 known reflex areas on the skin which represent various organs, glands and bone structures. It is believed that when the body becomes ill there is an interruption of nerve energy to these reflexes. The reflex, when tested, will act similar to a circuit breaker under an overload.

To test a reflex the practitioner will use the patient's arm muscle (or any other muscle) as a "circuit" indicator. When the practitioner contacts a healthy reflex point, the arm muscle will remain very strong. Nerve energy is flowing freely. The practitioner will not be able to push the patient's arm down without exerting a lot of force. However, if the arm muscle is suddenly weak and the practitioner can easily push the patient's arm down, a "hot circuit breaker" has been located. The nerve energy has been interrupted. Using this reflex information, the practitioner will know if the problem is structural, physical or nutritional.

When nutritional deficiencies are uncovered, specific designed clinical nutritions can be given to help the body heal.

What is Designed Clinical Nutrition or Nutraceuticals?

Designed clinical nutritions, or nutraceuticals, are precise formulations which have been developed to feed individual organs and tissues in the body. These nutritions have a carrier protein which helps to deliver the specific formulas directly to the tissues in a high concentration. This is why nutraceuticals are much more effective than over-the-counter vitamins, minerals, herbs and supplements which are distributed throughout the body and not directly to the targeted tissues and organs.

Natural health professionals continue to prove that most health disorders share the same root problem; improper body function, brought about by nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle.
