Nutrition Response Testing with
Applied Kinesiology & Muscle Testing
Below is a chart of the Riddler’s Nutritional Reflexes, from Dr. Sheldon Deal’s Chiropractic Assistants and Doctors Basic Applied Kinesiology Workshop Manual. Very unfortunately, this book is no longer available. I did this workshop in Australia, as part of my training in kinesiology, even though I am not a chiropractor, because we did not do any bone cracking. Kinesiology, while extremely powerful, is also very gentle.
In my opinion, kinesiology is superior to chiropractic. It was, after all, developed by chiropractors. Certainly, the best chiropractors will be those who incorporate a lot of Applied Kinesiology into their practice.
This is because kinesiology works on the energetic/electrical connection between the brain and the muscles, and it is the muscles that hold up the bones, not the other way around. If you held up a skeleton and let go, the skeleton would fall down. When there is a pain or problem in a certain area, the solution to the problem can be in a totally different area. For example, if a muscle goes weak, the opposing muscle on the other side will pull a bone out of alignment. But the problem is with the weak muscle, not the muscle that is bunched up pulling on the bone.
A basic Applied Kinesiology correction virtually always follows this formula:
1) The kinesiologist finds a weak muscle with a muscle test. This alerts the brain as to the imbalance.
2) The kinesiologist does the appropriate correction, as per their training.
3) The kinesiologist does the test again, to confirm that the correction worked, and to lock in the correction.
It’s not as simple as that, because if the kinesiologist does not know how to muscle test properly (which many don’t), or does not do the pretests (such as test for dehydration or blocking) before testing, then the test is null and void. I teach all of these in my DVD training series that has been appreciated by chiropractors, Perfect Health with Kinesiology & Muscle Testing. Some of the more important techniques from Dr. Sheldon Deal’s Chiropractic Assistants and Doctors Basic Applied Kinesiology Workshop Manual are also taught in this training.
Important: You cannot totally rely on the results you get from this doing this technique. Muscle testing should never invalidate medical tests.
1) Just because the body indicates to you through using this chart and muscle testing, that there a deficiency in a particular nutrient, does not necessarily mean that the best option is to take more nutritional supplements. It could simply be that the body is out of balance, and not working at peak efficiency.
2) Nutritional deficiencies and excesses change from day to day, week to week and month to month, depending on the person’s lifestyle and condition.
3) Often people get nutritional deficiencies because they are consuming too many toxins, and the body has to use up what good nutrition it does get in getting rid of them. For a comprehensive program that teaches how to eliminate toxins from one’s life, please read You’re not Fat, You’re Toxic.
4) When a the body is deficient of a particular mineral, it requires it in organic form. That is, bound up as part of a plant. Inorganic minerals are toxic.
5) This list reflects the nutritional knowledge of the people who put it together. As we discover more about the body’s nutritional requirements and how the body works, this chart should be improved.
This chart is copyright the Touch for Health Foundation, but, as I say, they do not sell this book, and I am reproducing only one page, which is allowable. Their website is www.touchforhealth.us
Here is the chart. Instructions are below.
Make sure you start with a body that is in balance, and the muscles you are using to test with are locking. Anytime you aren’t sure of the position, ask the body. Touch the spot and say “Indicator change if this is the correct position for the ___ nutritional test.” Indicator change is when a locking (strong) muscle unlocks (goes weak).

|Nutritional Substance||Point||Location||Comments by Stephanie Relfe|
|Vitamin A||3||Right eye only – ultra light pressure on lid.|
|Individual Vitamin B’s||5||Client holds one finger on end of tongue.||If weak, assess which Vitamin B – 1,2,3,5,6,12,13,15,17|
|Vitamin B6||5/6||One finger on tongue and one on jaw.|
|Vitamin C||15||Below left clavicle, 1.5″ from sternum.|
|Vitamin D||27||Left side – half way between pubic bone and Iliac crest.|
|Vitamin E||12||Below right clavical – 1.5″ from sternum.|
|Vitamin F||10||Above right clavicle – 0.5″ from sternal notch.||From good Fatty acids|
|Vitamin K||23||0.5″ to left of navel.||Clotting factor.|
|Multi-vitamins||4||Under each ear at the same time.||Use thumb and middle finger of one hand.|
|Bioflavinoids||14||Below left clavicle, 0.5″ from sternum.||These are important as painkillers and anti-inflammatories.|
|Calcium||9||Above left clavicle, 0.5″ from sternum.||See also magnesium, which is even more important, and is used in conjunction with calcium.|
|Chlorophyll||13||Below right clavicle, 0.5″ lateral of sternum.|
|Copper||25||Left side, half way between hip and navel.|
|Iodine||11||Sternal notch.||Kelp drops is a safer way to increase iodine.|
|Iron||26||Right side, half way between top of pubic bone and illiac crest.|
|Lead||28||Center of pubic bone.|
|Lecithin||20||2-2.5″ right of midline at level of lowest rib.||Make sure any lecithin you consume is not GMO.|
|Magnesium||22||Navel.||Very important. See also calcium.|
|Potassium||6||Right side of jaw, masseter muscle.|
|Protein||1||Hair.||It is a pity that this diagram does not distinguish between plant and animal protein, which are very different.|
|RNA||2||Bridge of nose.||Affects short term memory. RNA is used up a lot doing mental work. Spirulina tablets are a good way to supplement RNA.|
|Sodium||6||Left side of jaw.|
|Trace minerals||8||Left side of neck, 1″ above sternum.||Includes cobalt, boron, molybdenum, manganese, selenium, germanium, zink, copper, vernadium, cromium.|
|Zinc||24||Right side, halfway between hip and navel.|
|Acidophilus bacillus||18||Right side, between base of sternum and out tip of rib cage.||Note that there are many other species of probiotics (good bacteria) which are just as important as Acidophillis|
|Bile salts||19||Right side, outer tip of bottom of rib cage.|
|Enzymatic||17||Right side of base of sternum.||To do with vegetable protein digestion. (I am not sure why they test for this, since vegetable protein is easier to digest than meat protein).|
|HCL – Hydrochloric Acid||16||Left side at base of sternum.||To do with protein, calcium and iron digestion. There is no supplement for this. If it is deficient, you have to balance the body, and locate the cause of the deficiency, so that it can make enough HCl of its own.|
|Pancreatic digestion||21||There is no supplement for this. If it is deficient, you have to balance the body, and locate the cause of the deficiency, so that it can make enough of its own.|
|Parotid||7||Right and left sub maxillary gland under jaw.|
FOOD TESTING: Good, bad or neutral?
If you want to learn how to test whether or not any particular food, drink or substance is negative, neutral or positive for your body, that’s just one of the twelve disks that you will learn in Perfect Health with Kinesiology & Muscle Testing.
