1What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body and organ function to determine the underlying causes of ill or poor health by analyzing toxicities and deficiencies in the body. With Nutrition Response Testing, we treat the root of the issue – not just the symptoms. This technique is a form of applied kinesiology or otherwise known as “muscle-testing”.
2How long will it take for me to get better?
Everyone heals at their own pace. Nutrition is not a band-aid. It gets to the root of the symptoms, which does take time. It’s not a quick fix or emergency room care. It takes a long time for a symptom to show up. It can take awhile to have lasting, sustainable healing. Most patients can expect at least an 8-month to 3-year timeframe, not seeing us every week, but maintaining their progress. The programs are done in 6-12 visit increments.
3What can I expect on my first visit?
Your first appointment is an evaluation that lasts approximately 1 hour. During this appointment we will gather some health information from you and explain to you how Nutrition Response Testing is done. You will sit down with our owner and practitioner, Dr. Michael Blackman, and discuss your health situation in depth. We then check body fat percentage and conduct a computerized Heart Rate Variability Test, which gives us insight into your body's health condition. Lastly, we perform the extensive Nutrition Response Testing evaluation to determine the root causes of your health issues and the exact changes in nutrition your body needs to heal.
4What to expect prior to your initial visit?
You are welcome to fill out the paperwork at our office or prior to your appointment. Please print and bring this in with you.
5Do you offer Telehealth visits?
We can help anyone from any state or country through telehealth. We can meet with you via phone call or video call.
6What is the scheduling policy?
You are expected to keep all appointments as scheduled to ensure maximum progress in your case. If for some reason you cannot make an appointment, we require a minimum 24-hour advance notice before cancellation or rescheduling. You will need to reschedule that appointment for the same week and not fall into the following week. Short notice or no notice may also incur an office visit charge.
7Do you accept insurance?
We do not contract with any insurance companies. We do accept HSA and FSA as forms of payment. Please consult with your providers to confirm prior to your visit.
8Do you offer any discounts?
If you are fully committed to restoring your health and wish to prepay for the recommended number of office visits, we will pass on to you bookkeeping savings of 15%.
o Children of patients who are currently on a Natural Health Improvement Program may qualify for a 40% reduction off adult rate on all office visits and procedures.
