QRA - Nutritional Deficiency Testing Allowing the body to tell us what it needs to heal
Quantum Reflex Analysis
Have you ever been to a beginner band concert? Even when all instruments aren’t top of the line or played by experienced musicians, when one clarinet is too sharp or the trombone a little flat, everyone in the room – even non-musicians – know something is off, even if they don’t know how to define it. The body wants to be in harmony, too! Researchers have learned to interpret some of the signals the body sends and if we pay attention, the body will guide us in restoring equilibrium. Quantum Reflex Analysis, or QRA, is an outstanding technique that helps us to tap into the body and to see what areas are weak and in need of support. Like musicians in a symphony, our tissues, organs, and glands can harmonize through measurable frequencies that are different from one another yet in sync together. In fact, each organ and gland have its own frequency that makes it unique and discernible from other tissue, similar to the instruments in our earlier example. The term “biofield” has been created to describe this electrical aspect of the body.
Quantum Reflex Analysis is a comprehensive clinical tool, only available through trained QRA practitioners. The most advanced QRA practitioners utilize techniques and technologies that systematically “peel the onion” as the client works through the “Steps to Great Health,” focusing not only on the physical body but also on the innate healing abilities of the body. These steps are a necessary foundation to recovering from chronic illness. And they are vital if you want to reach a higher level of health. This work truly acknowledges that the body knows what is right for itself and what nutrition will bring about balance, strength and well-being.
What is QRA? QRA stands for Quantum Reflex Analysis, a comprehensive clinical tool used by trained practitioners to get to the root cause of any problem. The body is controlled by an intricate biochemical electrical system governed by a biofield (plasma energy field) that QRA is able to tap into. By testing these frequencies, the practitioner can pinpoint where exactly the organ/gland system are weak due to nutritional deficiencies, infection or sedation from scar or trauma sites. Once these sites are identified, the practitioner can precisely determine which supplement or treatment is needed to strengthen that organ/gland system. By using QRA you are essentially letting the body tell you exactly what remedy it needs. By using this method, there is absolutely no guess work and nothing is missed. Based on this precision of QRA it has been termed a pre- pathology neurological exam. This is because it can find things before they turn into symptom or problem.
Has the O-Ring Test that QRA Uses Been Scientifically Proven? Yes, the method of the bi-digital O ring test has been scientifically proven and was created by Dr. Omura. Dr. Omura applied for a patent in 1985, but the U.S. Patent Office took more than seven years of vigorous evaluation before officially granting a patent for Dr. Omura’s Bi-Digital O- Ring Test in 1993. After 3 years of extensive research, additional supporting evidence was presented to the Patent Office. Upon review, the Patent Office agreed Dr. Omura obtained enough evidence and the clinical results he had claimed on his patent application; however, they wanted further evidence that other qualified medical doctors, dentists and scientists could obtain the same results. Therefore, unlike most U.S. patent applications, independent evaluations of the validity of the methods of Dr. Omura’s BDORT were conducted by M.D.s and D.D.S.s with well established reputations in their specialties and by professors in medical and dental schools. These independent evaluations took another 3 years to complete. After studying and repeating the experiments, the 11 experts confirmed the validity of Dr. Omura’s patent claim, and his patent was granted on February 23, 1993- Patent 5,188,107. Since then there have been 23 university studies proving its efficacy.
How Does the QRA Nutritional Deficiency Testing Work? Each cell has DNA that vibrates at a particular frequency that causes it to emit a glow of light. You can imagine this glow of light to resemble an aura as seen above. These frequencies create an energy field that make up what is known as the biofield. Through these frequencies, messages are transmitted throughout the body, instructing cells how to function properly. However, if blockages occur in the field, due to nutritional deficiency, infection or foreign electromagnetic frequencies, the information is unable to properly instruct the cells, and physical as well as mental illness can result. Therefore, it is the job of the QRA practitioner to identify the weakened sites and utilize supplements and various detoxification methods to strengthen and restore the ideal frequency.
How Are the Frequencies Tested? QRA is a kinesiological testing system that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing. It is an effective system of testing the bio-energetic status of the body’s organ and gland systems using a university-proven muscle testing technique, called the bi-digital O ring, on acupuncture reflex points. Because the body is electrical, the frequencies of the organ and gland systems can be tested to see how weak or strong they are being emitted. Much like how a cardiologist tests your heart using an EKG, a QRA practitioner tests your heart using your hand. The reason why QRA is using the hand rather than an arm, which is typically used in kinesiological exams, is because 1/3 of the cerebral cortex of the brain alone controls the hand. With this fact, the dedicated portion of brain to the hand for “eye hand coordination “ needed for every sport and to the simple act of threading a needle or rapid text messages – is the demonstration of the hand having very little physical mass yet having a HUGE percentage of “fine motor control “ by the cerebral cortex. Therefore, the precision and accuracy is much more defined than that of the gross motor movement by the muscle of an arm. This form of testing allows the practitioner to get to the root cause of the issue by directly testing the energetic frequencies of the body without being invasive or causing any pain.
How was QRA (Quantum Reflex Analysis) developed? QRA was developed by Dr. Robert Marshall, PhD, CCN, DACBN, CEO of Premier Research Labs, as a system that cohesively merged the science of the quantum physics with acupuncture and kinesiology. Dr. Marshall was able to apply his knowledge as a biophysicist with the patented bi-digital o ring test created by Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, in order to create an elegant mode of testing that is able to get to “the root of the root” of any problem. In a fashion you are utilizing this energy grid pattern within the biofield to now connect the polarity or lack of it at each organ/gland or tissue within the body.
What Does QRA Reveal?
Infection (viral, bacteria, fungal, parasitic)– especially those that are unable to be detected by laboratory tests
Food, Environmental, Electromagnetic Stressors
Toxic Nature of any product- including food, supplements, skin care or household care
Interference Fields- toxic and stagnant energy due to scar and trauma sites
Why Do I Need to Take So Many Supplements? Studies show that there has been a 50% decline in antioxidants and minerals in our food from 1950- 1984. Furthermore, you would have to eat 53 peaches to get the same amount of vitamin A in 1 peach from 1950.1 These two statistics show you how grossly nutrient deprived we are and how the correlative rise in chronic disease is not a surprise. In addition to the rapid decline in nutrition, we are being faced with more toxic exposure than ever before. An exorbitant amount of chemicals are being released into the environment every year, from our air, water, food, and environment and even from the very products we use on our body. This constant flux of toxins overwhelms our liver, which has over 4,000 functions to perform every day in addition to clearing toxins. With the lack of nutrition to support our toxic exposure, it is inevitable that our bodies become overwhelmed leading to illness. Therefore, we need far more nutrition than ever before just to get us back to a base level and one of the only ways to do this is from supplements. While eating a balanced diet is necessary, the nutrition is still not adequate enough to meet our body’s needs. Therefore, supplementation must become our “food,” as we use this as our raw materials for regaining back health and balance in the body.
In addition, to the basic nutritional products that serve as your “food,” such as Greens Mix, Pink Salt, and EFA or Cod Liver Oil, you will be on an array of other organ/gland specific or immune specific products. These products might seem like a lot of product to take initially, but they will in fact decrease as you regain your health. You must stay diligent in taking them in order to get the results you deserve as quickly as possible.
How Long Will it Take to See Results? Results vary from patient to patient based on the status of their health, the issues they are faced with, and how diligent they are in the healing process. Some people will see results within one day while other might not see any results for up to a month. 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 awhile to clear infections, inflammation and waste and strengthen the organ/gland systems to a place where results can be seen. It is up to you to remain faithful and to stick to your program.
It is also important to realize that supplements do not work on the same model as pharmaceutical drugs. Supplements do not work to mask symptoms but rather provide nutritional support and therefore they might take longer to be effective.
What Happens if I Forget to Take a Supplement? If you forget to take a supplement, take it as soon as you remember. All of the supplements will be effective whether you take them with or without a meal- it is just ideal to take them based on your practitioner’s recommendations. There are a few supplements that do have guidelines though on usage:
Adaptogen- should only be taken in the morning
Adrenal- should not be taken past lunch hour
EFA Oil, Cod Liver Oil, D3- being fats, should be taken with a food containing protein If you are sensitive or a light sleeper, do not take the following past 4 pm:
Max Stress B
Super Nano Green Tea
What if I Cannot Swallow a Capsule? This is a very common problem that most people find to be remedied by taking the supplements with tomato juice. The tomato juice (puree organic tomatoes in a blender adding 1 tablespoon of PRL Tomato Concentrate) will provide a thick base that allows the supplements to be swallowed with ease. If this method remains ineffective for you, feel free to open the capsules and empty them into any food, drink or smoothie. Mixing them in a smoothie, applesauce or raw nut butter is a great method for children.
What Should I Do to Prepare for My QRA Exam?
Be sure to be hydrated and not hungry
Be sure you took the time to fill out the 1st EVALUATION forms
Do not take any supplements the day of the exam
Try to wear loose clothing that does not have any zippers or buttons
If possible, please cut your fingernails short
Bring in your 1st morning urine which is most accurate in measuring your pH (if you have been instructed to do so by your practitioner)

What is an Interference Field? An interference field is any scar or trauma that has disrupted the normal, healthy energetic flow of energy. This disruption can not only be at the site itself but it can also disrupt flow to neighboring organ/gland systems as well, including the brain. As a result, organ/gland systems, as well as tissues, can become overburdened with toxic materials that lead to nutritional deficiencies, infections, inflammation, and pain. Interference fields are a major underlying cause of many disorders and are often an overlooked player in the role of disease. Therefore, it is imperative to clear these interference fields in order to restore the natural flow of energy in the body, so that ultimately the body can achieve limitless health.
