Contact Reflex Analysis, also known as CRA, is a simple, safe, natural method of analyzing the body’s structural, physical, and nutritional needs. A deficiency in any of these areas could cause or contribute to various acute or chronic health problems. CRA is not a method of diagnosis. It is a means by which a doctor uses the body’s reflexes to accurately determine the root cause of a health problem.
CRA is also an effective preventative technique: used to find a problem before it becomes a full-blown health issue. The goal is to find the issue early and correct it.
CRA reveals the root of the 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 doctor with answers for correcting it.
Procedure of Contact Reflex Analysis
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 doctor will use the patient’s arm muscle (or any other muscle) as a “circuit” indicator. When the doctor’s fingertip comes near or touches a healthy reflex, the arm muscle will remain very strong. Nerve energy is flowing freely. The doctor 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 doctor 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 doctor will know if the problem is structural, physical, or nutritional.
When the deficiencies are uncovered, an exact structural and/or nutritional support can be given to help the body heal.
Deficiencies & Illness
A structural deficiency could inhibit the necessary flow of energy and nutrition to specific organs, muscles, glands … thus causing a health problem.
Physical deficiencies are caused by environmental agents such as chemicals, parasites, viruses and bacteria that attack the body and make it sick. Proper nutrition needs to be given to strengthen and/or support the problem area.
Health authorities are finally admitting that good nutrition is very important to good health.
Natural Health Professionals continue to prove that most health disorders share the same root problem; improper body function, brought about by nutritional deficiencies and life-style.
CRA is Accurate
A great degree of accuracy is possible with CRA. It will even uncover deficiencies at a sub-clinical level; that is when the problem is so tiny that the person may not be aware of it, and many modern methods of testing could not detect it.
Until CRA, the methods for determining the body’s structural, physical, and nutritional needs were costly, time consuming and at times frightening. The only method of determining a nutritional need was by a person’s symptoms, expensive lab work, and the doctor’s knowledge of biochemistry, physiology, and nutrition. An educated guess was made.
Now with CRA, the educated guess is no longer necessary. CRA is the finest natural method of guiding the doctor to the root of the problem.
With CRA, the doctor is also able to prove to the patient that the source of the problem has been located, and that the proper nutritional support and/or structural procedure has been given.
CRA is Used in Many Health Professions
CRA was researched and developed by Dr. Versendaal, D.C., along with an M.D., a clinical nutritionist, a dentist and a hematologist during the past 30 years. CRA has been taught in continuing education seminars across the United States to all health professionals for over 25 years. There are health professionals all across the country who are proficient in CRA.
