What is Muscle Testing?
Muscle Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health. It is a means of tuning in to the function of your body’s electrical system or nervous system. This allows for real-time detection of excesses, deficiencies, and stressors to the body in regards to vitamins, hormones, minerals, yeasts, molds, fungus, heavy metals, and many more potential underlying problems.

What should I expect at my first visit?
Dr Duke will meet with you and do a thorough intake involving medical history, current health situation and additional questions that you may not think relevant to your health condition. He will then complete a full body scan utilizing manual muscle testing to address any underlying issues involving organ dysfunction. Dr Duke then tests all the vitamins, minerals, hormones, and infectious agents that could potentially be affecting your health. These sessions generally last 45 minutes to 1 hour. Acupuncture begins on the second appointment once the right protocol is determined.
What is orthomolecular supplementation?
Orthomolecular supplementation aims to maintain health through nutritional supplementation. Treatment of disease involves correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on individual biochemistry by use of substances such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements, fatty acids, and other nutritional supplements. In this way, the body will be able to function optimally in resolving health conditions. If the body does not have what it needs it will not be capable of reaching optimal health.
How does acupuncture work?
According to the National Institutes of Health, researchers are studying at least three possible explanations for how acupuncture works:
- Opioid release. During acupuncture, endorphins that are part of your body’s natural pain-control system may be released into your central nervous system — your brain and spinal cord. This reduces pain much like taking pain medication.
- Spinal cord stimulation. Acupuncture may stimulate the nerves in your spinal cord to release pain-suppressing neurotransmitters. This has sometimes been called the “gate theory.”
- Blood flow changes. Acupuncture needles may increase the amount of blood flow in the area around the needle. The increased blood flow may supply additional nutrients or remove toxic substances, or both, promoting healing.
Conditions it can help with:
- Weight loss
- Pain Management
- Stress Management
- Hormonal Imbalance
- Facial Rejuvenation
