Dr. James D Henry, D.C.

Dr Henry has been a chiropractic physician for 47 years. He also offers nutritional testing at our location. Please call if you have any questions. Here is some information on the NDIS system. 

Nutritional Deficiency Identification System (NDIS)

NDIS was developed over the past 25 years. Dr. Henry received a patent from the US Patent Office  in 1990 for his testing system. NDIS is a computer aided nutritional  evaluation system that registers changes in body temperature when a specific nutrient is tested. Over 70 different nutrients and  nutraceutical formulations are tested, giving a very comprehensive  analysis of your body's nutritional needs.  


  How NDIS Works


 Since the digestion of food begins in the mouth with the intake of carbohydrates, fats, and protein, the process produces heat. When food or a nutritional supplement is placed and held on the tongue, the retro olfactory (back of throat) stimulates the hypothalamus in the brain. The hypothalamus controls body temperature and is known to contain feeding the satiety centers. The accuracy of NDIS technology relies on a monitoring process the measures the response of the hypothalamus to temperature changes the 100th of a degree increments as each of the 71 test nutrients are introduced. The testing procedure involves attaching the temperature probe under the arm to measure the temperature changes. This biofeedback instrument is then linked to a computer by a fiber optic cable. After waiting 27 to 35 minutes to synchronize the patient’s baseline temperature with NDIS, the actual test procedure begins with the placement of a food supplement, mineral, tissue extract, or photochemical on the tongue for 1 ½ minutes. A voice-activated prompt tells the patient to remove and discard the item and take a sip of water to clear and carryover or residual effect before testing the next nutrient.  NDIS is simple because the patient self-administers the test with occasional oversight by a staff member. After the patient spits out the test nutrient, the NDIS computer software takes approximately another 1 ½ minutes to analyze the result before testing begins for the next nutrient. As an interesting side note, one of the most difficult challenges in the developments of NDIS was working out how to avoid any nutrient or temperature carryover proceeding from the test item to subsequent test items. This was the most difficult part of the research and it took years of trial and error to obtain accuracy of NDIS. To insure accuracy, the patented NDIS software is designed to sample the patient’s temperature changes every 5 seconds for each test nutrient. The result of the 15 second mark determines whether NDIS extends monitoring from 3 minutes to 3.5 minutes before moving on to the test the next supplement. For example, if the 15 second mark registers an obvious variation of temperature change, and extra ½ minute carry-over from particular nutrient is less likely to occur.  As testing proceeds from one nutrient to the subsequent nutrient, NDIS software keeps track of two elements: 1) which specific supplement the hypothalamus responds to and 2) the level of response or the “excitement factor.” For measurement purposes, responses are divided in 1/100th of a degree and a deficiency excitement response can be as little as 3/100 of a degree or 3 units. Once the test is completed, it is simply a matter of prescribing the supplements which procedure the “most excitement factor” in the patient.
