Some imbalances in the body can be because of deficiencies
in vitamins or minerals. Due to over farming of
the soil in the last 70 years, many of us who eat
a healthy diet are not actually getting the essential
vitamins and minerals we need for a healthy system
as the food itself is depleted. Some foods like
refined sugar actually strip the body of some essential
vitamin and minerals.
infections, lack of energy, menstrual imbalances,
and unhealthy skin/hair/nails can often be a manifestation
of a deficiency. Many people seem to take many weeks
to recover from flu, tummy bug or even a cold.
is most likely due to a deficiency. When our body
is under stress for any reason, we utilise a huge
amount of minerals and vitamins. That is why it
is a good idea to take a test to check your personal
vitamin and mineral levels periodically especially
after illness or times of stress.
- Vitamins and Minerals - The environment
can all cause allergy, food intolerance and chemical
sensitivity within our bodies. The effects can vary
massively from a skin rash to anaphylactic shock
in very severe cases.
people suffer from allergies and intolerances but
are unaware of the effect they may be having on
their body. We are pleased to be able to offer an
allergy test here at the Floathouse which is designed
to diagnose if and what your body is intolerant
for Fast Test Results
Allergy Testing has become an increasingly popular
therapy for many people who wish to address those
health, stress and weight issues that have been
troubling them undiagnosed for many years.
method that we use to test patients is using a Vega
use of the Vega machine combines Traditional Acupuncture
theory and Classical Homeopathic theory. This is
one of the systems capable of use within the field
of Bio-electronic Regulatory Medicine (BER Medicine)
The Vega test takes readings of very low electrical
vibrations from within the body via acupuncture
on the hand using a pen like stylus (no needles
involved). The readings are taken by the tester
who places the test probe on the surface of the
patient's skin. The patient holds a second probe
in their other hand, thus completing the circuit
with the substance being tested. The readings obtained
are compared with homeopathic potencies or environmental
substances that are introduced into the circuit.
Vega test is a simple, painless food intolerance
test. RESULTS ARE INSTANTANIOUS
pinpoints potentially harmful foods that can be
causing your symptoms
does a Vega test involve?
Over 100 substances which include common foods and
drinks and environmental substances are tested during
our consultation. The equipment we use is a bio-electronic
analyzer which measures the body's electrical resistance
to these substances. If a substance is causing a
problem then it there will be a dip or drop in body's
electrical resistance. The test is best described
as a ball point pen touching the tip of your finger
upon an acupuncture point.
long does it take?
Your appointment will take approximately 1 hour,
during which your test is carried out and your instantaneous
results are discussed.
can be tested?
This test is suitable for anyone other than those
who are fitted with a pacemaker and any aged child
subject to them being on solid foods. If you are
taking prescribed medication this will not interfere
with the test.
I have to avoid certain foods forever?
This will depend on whether your body can tolerate
the food once it has been reintroduced into your
diet, after an initial 12 week programme. In some
circumstances this 12 week period will have to be
extended, if, for example, the body's immune and
digestive systems need additional support to eradicate
the underlying problem.
I need to see you again?
It is always recommended that you have
a follow up session as the advice given now will
change and alter as your body changes. Each person's
route to recovery from their symptoms is different.
What may be appropriate now may not be appropriate
in 12 weeks. If there is a particular product that
you are unsure of as to whether you are reacting
to it, this can be a skin, bath or household spray,
liquid etc, please feel free to bring it along so
that I can test it to see if it is upsetting your
system. There is an additional £5 charge for
any medication I am taking be affected?
This is a complementary diagnostic therapy that
combines well with traditional medicine.
