Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) is an advanced form of kinesiological / energetic testing using a bi-digital (thumb and ring finger) “O-ring” test initially developed by Dr. Yoshiaki Omura which focuses on key acupuncture reflex points that correspond to specific organs and systems. QRA is the technique I use to provide Nutritional Counseling.
Dr. Omura’s technique was further refined by Dr. Robert Marshall, PhD, CCN, and CEO of Premier Research Labs, and named Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA). QRA allows a trained practitioner to quickly pinpoint areas of nutritional deficiency and then determine the precise nutrients or formulas and the exact amounts of each required to restore optimum functioning.
Dr. Marshall discussing the need for proper supplementation and the benefits of QRA.
How does the QRA “O-ring” test compare with the use of an arm, which is typically used in kinesiological exams?
QRA uses two digits of any hand rather than an arm because 1/3 of the cerebral cortex of the brain is used simply to control the hand. Therefore, the precision and accuracy of a QRA test is much greater than that of the gross motor movements of arm muscles. This allows a trained practitioner to do finely-tuned and accurate testing that quickly pinpoints root causes without being invasive or causing pain.
Who does QRA testing?
QRA testing can be done by any QRA trained practitioner, which includes medical doctors, osteopathic doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, clinical nutritionists, health coaches, and holistic health care practitioners such as medical massage therapists.
What benefits will I gain from having a QRA test done?
Your body is controlled by an intricate biochemical electrical system governed by a biofield (a plasma energy field) that QRA is able to tap into. By testing these frequencies, a trained practitioner can pinpoint which organs/glandular systems are weak due to nutritional deficiencies, infection, or the effects of scars or traumas. Once these weakness are identified the practitioner can precisely determine which supplement or treatment is needed to strengthen the organ/glandular system. By using QRA you and the practitioner are essentially letting your body tell you exactly what remedies it needs.
Why might QRA indicate I require specific supplements to correct a deficiency?
Studies show that there has been a 50% decline in the antioxidants and minerals in our foods since the 1950’s. For example, it has been said that you would have to eat 53 peaches today to get the same amount of Vitamin A that was found in one peach in 1950.
Even if you eat a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables you’re still missing key nutrients; and if you eat a lot of cooked and processed foods you are missing out even more essential nutrients. In addition, daily exposure to the toxins in the air, water, and food overwhelms most people’s livers and kidneys, leaving them unable to adequately detoxify the body. Even those who eat plenty of raw foods and a well balanced diet require some supplementation to provide their bodies the raw materials required to regain and retain good health.
How long will it take to see results?
Results vary from person to person based on the status of their health, the issues they are facing, and how diligent they are in making necessary changes. Some see results in one day while other might require up to a month or more. If you do not see results quickly, this does not mean that you are not getting better. Sometimes the body is so toxic that it takes time to clear the toxins and time for inflammation to subside so your organs and glands can begin to function at an optimum level. Supplements do not work on the same model as pharmaceutical drugs which often have an immediate affect; however, unlike drugs, supplements do not mask symptoms but rather provide the nutritional support your body needs to be at its best.
How should I prepare for my QRA exam?
Do not take any supplements the day of the exam (ideally stop taking supplements 24 hours before your visit). If you are on an essential prescription medication, however, do not stop taking your medication as prescribed. Be sure to be well hydrated and try to wear loose and comfortable clothing for your visit.
