Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a highly sensitive form of bio-feedback testing developed by Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D. Ph.D.   

It looks for the stressed condition of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) called 'blocked regulation'.  Blocked regulation refers to the inability of the ANS to self-regulate and is commonly caused by 7 factors. These include: undiagnosed food allergies, heavy metal toxicity, chemical toxicity, chronic unresolved infections, scars, temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, unresolved psycho-emotional stress, and electromagnetic stress.  




ART marries together techniques from many disciplines including Applied Kinesiology and biophoton physics and is carried out by noting changes in muscle strength while an organ, gland, substance, or function is being tested.

ART is an extension of the physical exam. It does not replace lab work and imaging techniques or good psychological work. However, the technique allows the practitioner to determine on which of the 5 levels of reality the illness has entered the system or has its origin – and allows us to address on the root-cause level rather than the level of the symptoms (all symptoms are always on the physical or emotional level.

Using ART we can test the body for resonance with an array of heavy metals, toxins and infections to determine the priority stressors and a body scan determines which organs and body systems are out of balance. Once issues are found to be causing stress to the body, can then test the best solutions /interventions to clear the stress -these solutions can be foods, nutrients, tapping points, lifestyle changes or other therapeutic interventions

Dr. Klinghardt believes that many practitioners who use kinesiology or muscle testing are often getting inaccurate information because the ANS is not functioning properly. He calls this condition “blocked regulation” and feels that the inability of the ANS to self-regulate is caused by one or more of the 7 factors.

I am qualified via the Klinghardt Institute to be offering this testing and continue to undertake Advanced Training modules training with Dr Klinghardt throughout the year.
