I had to look up what you were talking about, because I haven't heard it called that before. Yes, I had this kind of testing done at my daughter's dan doctor. We did what is called an OAT or Organic Acids Test, which gave information about her vitamin levels, immune system, yeast, bacteria, allergies and some toxins. We also did a toxic hair elements test, which gave us a breakdown of all the toxic metals and minerals in her system. Its been really helpful because although we had been doing the GFCF diet for about 6 months, she had high levels of yeast in her system which was being fed by gluten free grains and sugars. We switched her diet to SCD (specific carbohydrate diet) and removed all grains, starch and sugar and she has been improving even more. She is on a number of supplements which were recommended after we had the testing done. Its helped her so much. She has improved her focus, eye contact, speech and behavior dramatically.

 what is this?  we think ds has some type of issue with digestion, if he has any seasonings or grease or strong flavors he gets the WORST diaper rashes.... and his skin is bumpy allll over :(

nutrition response testing is a noninvasive way to determine what the body needs or is reacting to via musce testing. there are videos on utube
