Lingual-Neuro Testing (LNT)
Lingual-Neuro Testing (LNT), is an integral part of the Functional Evaluation process that uses the powerful biofeedback abilities of the tongue to help practitioners identify deficiencies and choose the bioindividual-specific nutrients needed to bring a client back into balance. For the sake of limiting variables, the LNT process typically involves the testing of specific nutrients or supplements. However, practitioners are encouraged to LNT with a variety of real foods, sea salts, etc.
More than just sensing taste, the nerves in the tongue act somewhat like a “barcode scanner” telling the brain what specific nutrients are found in a given food or supplement, then communicating this information with the entire body via the Central Nervous System and Vagus nerve.
FE & LNT ADVANTAGES
- Identifying and quantifying weaknesses and imbalances throughout the body.
- Enabling individualized nutrition and supplement recommendations and lifestyle protocols necessary to restore vibrant health.
- Allowing long-term documentation of changes in the body’s systems, demonstrating effectiveness and increasing client commitment to protocols.
The ability to Lingual-Neuro test provides a Nutritional Therapist with a tremendous tool to access nutritional needs w/ respect to the biochemical individuality of their clients.
