Autonomic Response Testing

ART – Autonomic Response Testing

The Autonomic Regulation Test ART is an important subfield of neurobiology according to Dr. Klinghardt. Behind this term is a diagnostic system developed in recent years in the USA by Dr. Klinghardt and Dr. Williams in collaboration with leading dentists, neurologists, orthopedists, chiropractors and healers.

The ART is a biofeedback-assisted part of the patient’s physical examination.


The ART utilizes the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in its role as a mediator between all organs and cells of the body. Disturbances in the communication system of the ANS result in a disturbance of our health.


With the help of the kinesiological muscle test, a simple bio-feedback method, it is possible to examine the state of the ANS and determine function-impairing stresses.

On the intuitive level

Entanglements in the family system


On the mental level

Unresolved emotional conflicts and traumas, post-traumatic stress syndrome, limiting beliefs, current psychological burdens


On the energetic level

Energetic blockages and disturbances caused by scars, teeth, root fillings, implants, etc.
Biophysical stress caused by electrosmog (e.g. cell phones, DECT phones, computers), microwaves, etc.
geopathic interference fields (e.g. water veins)
food and environmental allergies (wheat, gluten, milk protein, chicken egg, nuts, food additives, pollen, pets, etc.)


On the physical level

Heavy metals, aluminum and other toxins, drug residues, vaccine exposures
Burdens and biotoxins from parasites, viruses, bacteria and fungi
Deficiencies (including vitamins, minerals, hormones)
structural disorders (including malocclusion of the temporomandibular joint, vertebral displacement)

The Autonomic Regulation Test makes it possible to find out from all these factors the primary interference field that puts the greatest strain on the ANS.
This unique combination of the latest findings from neurobiology with proven concepts from naturopathy and psychotherapy makes it possible to effectively address complex interrelationships in the human being.


When the primary interference fields are identified and treated, the body is usually enabled to recognize its “faulty controls” again and to correct them self-regulatively.
