1. What is Nutrition Response testing?

Dr. Freddie Ulan, D.C., C.C.N. Of Glen Falls, NY who developed Nutrition Response Testing in 1991, describes it as a “non-invasive method of analyzing the body to determine the actual root causes of health conditions. It enables the practitioner to determine the exact patient nutritional deficiency or imbalance so it can be corrected.” Practitioners all over the world have been trained to perform Nutrition Response Testing and thousands of people have experienced major improvements in their health after undergoing the test and modifying their diet accordingly.

   2. How is the test performed?

The analysis is performed by testing particular neurological reflexes each one representing a specific organ, tissue or function within the body. By analyzing your body’s reflexes, Dr. Ortiz will be able to determine which areas of your body are not functioning as well as they could. Once these areas have been identified Dr. Ortiz will study your muscle responses to various stressors in order to figure out the root cause of the dysfunction. The physical process involves Dr. Ortiz contacting your extended arm with one hand while contacting a specific reflex area with the other hand. If the reflex tested is stressed your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm and directing it instead to the stressed organ or tissue. This response denotes an underlying dysfunction present in that part of your body. When the dysfunction is corrected, the health issues it has caused can also be resolved.

   3. How will my test results be used?

Dr. Ortiz will use the information gathered through the test to make recommendations for whole food supplementation and dietary changes, if necessary. Holistic Alignment offers a complete line of whole food supplementation from Standard Process, a Wisconsin based company founded in 1929 by Dr. Lee with the goal of “providing nutrients for the body as they are found in nature— in a whole food state where their natural potency and efficacy can be realized”.

   4. Is Nutrition Response Testing safe?

Yes, it is completely safe for your entire family, it can be performed on both children and adults, and involves no risky procedures or exposure to any potentially damaging chemicals.



  5. Will I need to have the test performed multiple times?

After the initial test, Dr. Ortiz may recommend that you add certain whole food supplements to your diet. After beginning a supplementation program, you will be retested periodically to assess how the supplements are affecting previously identified nutritional imbalances or deficiencies.

   6. Is the test expensive?

We find that the cost of Nutrition Response testing fits most budgets: $40 per test.
