After years of taking nutrition courses, Dr. Holly was just as confused an overwhelmed as her patients. So many opinions, so many supplements, so many leading authorities saying take this, don’t take that. Between the years of 2007 and 2015 Dr. Holly began taking continuing education classes focused on Nutrition Response Testing. Time restraints prevented Dr. Holly from being able to become trained with this technique. However, in Oct 2014 her prayers were answered when she was introduce to Gail Harrington. Gail was first a patinet of a NRT practitioner and when her health was transformed so dramatically, she felt a great need to be trained with this technique. Since 2011 Gail has been a Certified NRT practitioner and has been helping people in the state of Massachusetts. Gail joined the team at 202 Mai Street in February of 2015.
NRT is the premier muscle-testing technique for determining which of your organs needs help, why and how to fix it. Practitioners can pinpoint precisely what a person needs to bring their health up to the next level. Practitioners use whole food nutritional supplements from the leading supplement company called Standard Process Labs.
NRT is non invasive and helps to determine which systems were urgently in need of support. What nutritional supplements are needed first, and in what dosages? The technology is complete, and the results are unvarying given proper training. Qualified practitioners can assess the status of the autonomic nervous system and design a precise nutritional program that will rebuild the compromised systems in the sequence dictated by the body’s needs.
NRT Assessments takes 15 to 20 minutes and cost $45. Supplements can range between $10 and $45 depending on what your body needs.
The human body needs to be given certain things in order to fully maximize its healing potential. It needs to be subluxation free to allow for unimpeded function of the nervous system. It needs fresh air and sunlight, exercise and rest, and it needs to be fed proper foods and pure water. Steering towards diets high in raw fruits and vegetables, preferably local, and low in processed foods, animal fats, and sugar will help to ensure a cleaner running body.
‘Health at Every Size’
Medical science has finally recognized the important role of diet in optimal health and disease prevention.
Yet, something is missing…
Obesity, overeating pain around body image, emotional challenges with food, digestive ailments, fatigue, and nutrition-linked metabolic disorders are with us more than ever.
Clearly, our collective approach to nutritional health and happiness isn’t working.
It’s time for a new way of seeing things…
Current guidelines recommend that “overweight” and “obese” individuals lose weight through engaging in lifestyle modification involving diet, exercise and other behavior change. This approach reliably induces short term weight loss, but the majority of individuals are unable to maintain weight loss over the long term and do not achieve the putative benefits of improved morbidity and mortality. Concern has arisen that this weight focus is not only ineffective at producing thinner, healthier bodies, but may also have unintended consequences, contributing to food and body preoccupation, repeated cycles of weight loss and regain, distraction from other personal health goals and wider health determinants, reduced self-esteem, eating disorders, other health decrement, and weight stigmatization and discrimination.
When was the last time you talked with a health professional about your health and received the personal attention you deserve? It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and wellness goals with a trained professional.

What’s a GMO?
A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same.
In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.
