Lepore Technique of M.R.T.
Form of muscle testing (“Muscle Response Test” technique) that is the centerpiece of the Lepore technique. Its alleged design is to pinpoint allergens (“metabolic antagonists”), “measure” their “nutritional” neutralizers (e.g., herbs and homeopathic “remedies”), and “measure” nutrients that conduce to absorption of the neutralizers. The Lepore Technique of M.R.T. involves: (a) rubbing the thymus, purportedly to activate acupoints; and (b) rubbing “the mastoid gland behind both ears,” purportedly to relax acupoints. The practitioner may perform it for a sleeping child or an invalid (even a comatose person) through a surrogate standing near the subject.
