ERIN JOY CUMMINGS, NTP & ACEc-PT
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner & an ACE-certified Personal Trainer
(American Council on Exercise), Erin always finds a way to diversify her training
& coaching so it fits the individual, and finds fulfillment in encouraging &
inspiring others to reach their goals. Often, a major overlooked issue lies in
proper absorption & break-down of nutrients in our bodies. It is important to
work from the inside out, addressing foundational deficiencies the body may
have, and then build upon that foundation toward optimal health & wellness.
Setting goals can challenge and inspire you to discover what you’re capable
of. Goals can only be achieved through hard-work, consistency, and
accountability. We all benefit from a coach. Erin holds a BA from Oregon
State (2004), and is a certified NTP through the Nutritional Therapy
Association. Erin has been working in the health & fitness industry since 2004,
from instructing a variety of classes (Cycling, Yoga, Cardio-kickboxing, Sports
Conditioning, Specialized Group Training), and working one on one with
individuals of all ages (rehab, sports performance, general health and weight
loss).
Erin believes that having the opportunity to be continually active and healthy
throughout life is an incredible gift and privilege that should not be passed up-
no matter what age or season of life. Connection with others and
encouragement is where we find motivation to pursue our best, and learning
how to be better in tune with our bodies allows us the opportunity to find
optimal health in body, mind, & spirit.

Reintroduction

GENTLE REINTRODUCTION:
During your 4—Day+ Reintroduction period, it is
important that you continue to support the body & listen
to what it needs. This means moving forward with
intention, by choosing to gently reintroduce certain
foods back into your diet with curiosity of how you feel.
**WHAT TO CONTINUE IN MOVING FORWARD:
HYDRATION:
Drink ½ your body weight in ounces, daily.
Example: 150lb. Person Drink: 75oz./day
SEA SALT: add a pinch to your water bottle (1-3x/day) to
add electrolytes. Sea salt contains up to 92 essential trace
minerals which will actually help your body hydrate and
flush toxins. This also helps decrease cramps, and the
magnesium helps relax muscles. This is why Epsom Salt
Baths are helpful.
ENJOYABLE EXERCISE & MOVEMENT:
During the 4-Day+ Reintroduction Phase, it is
recommended that you gently begin to add back more
movement & exercise, as the body feels ready.
Remember, this is about working with your body & not
against it! Try out various ways to move and stick to what
feels healthy & nourishing. REST is just as important!

The Pulse Test
(Lingual-Neuro Test)
Purpose: A simple 2 ½ minute self-test to determine if a particular food or supplement
causes a stressful reaction.
Note: This test may not be valid if you are taking a drug that controls your
heart rate, such as a calcium-channel blocker or a beta-blocker.
Procedure:
1. Sit down, take a deep breath, and relax.
2. Establish your baseline pulse by counting your heart beat for one full minute and record
your pulse in the “Before” space in the Pulse Test Record below.
3. Put a sample of a food or supplement to evaluate in your mouth (on your tongue). You
may chew but refrain from swallowing. You do need to taste it for approximately 30
seconds.
Note: The sensory information taste signals from your mouth will inform your central nervous system
(brain) as to the nature of the test substance. If the test substance (food or supplement) is stressful to the
body, you will have a brief reaction that causes your heart to beat faster.
Test only one food at a time. Testing individual ingredients will yield specific information, compared with
testing foods containing multiple ingredients. Testing a banana, for example, yields more specific, and
therefore more valuable, information than testing banana bread.
4. Retake your pulse with the food or supplement still in your mouth. Write down your
“After” pulse on the Pulse Test Record.
Note: An increase of 6 or more is considered the result of a stressful reaction. The greater the degree of
stressfulness or reactivity, the higher the heart rate will be.
5. Discard the tested ingredient (do not swallow) and repeat the procedure to test other foods
or supplements. Repeat the procedure as frequently as you like, as long as you always
return to your normal pulse before testing the next food.
Note: If a reaction occurred, rinse your mouth out with some purified water and spit the water out. Wait
two minutes, then you can retest your pulse to see if it has returned to its baseline. If it hasn’t, wait a couple
more minutes and retest. Continue to retest until you have returned to your normal pulse. Once your pulse
has returned to its normal rate, you can test the next food.
6. Make an appointment to go over the results of this test as soon as possible or bring this
record with you to your next appointment.

continue reacting to an allergy & clear the
inflammation. It is recommended to increase
hydration & space out your testing.

Are you Choosing to
MEDICATE
or
CELEBRATE
?
Our digestive organs do more than just break down &
assimilate food in our body. This is a place we
carry our CHOICE & our POWER. Every time we choose
to put something into our bodies, whether that is
food or drink, what we read, watch, listen to, and
even the people we let in, our body will have either
a
healing
response, or a
stress
response. Are you
choosing to use these things to numb, cope, &
distract yourself by MEDICATINGor are you
MINDFULLY choosing to
nourish yourself
with what
brings TRUE HEALTH & AUTHENTIC JOY?
What if this was how we chose to move forward?
