Food Intolerance Testing
with Annamarie Roberts
To carry out this test I will be using a Dietx machine which is an electro dermal screening machine. In the 1950s a German Doctor, Dr Reinhold Voll discovered that acupuncture points had a lower electrical resistance than other points on the skin. He created a device that enabled him to measure the skins resistance at these points and found that healthy people had a standard measurement. An increase from a normal reading indicated inflammation in tissues connected with that point, a decrease from a normal reading implied there was fatigue or degeneration in the tissues connected with that point. These methods and technologies initiated by Dr Voll became known as EAV (Electro acupuncture according to Voll); it is also known as electro dermal screening.
What does the test involve?
Firstly you will be given a brief questionnaire, this will be in reference with any medical issues you may have. I will then begin the test; this is a completely painless, non-invasive test. A circuit is made with the instruments that enable the machine to pick up on a certain type of energy. I then incorporate a food/substance ampoule into the circuit and if it does not agree with you, it will generate an abnormal reading which is known as a resistance. The accuracy of the test is 75-80% but the elimination diet is known to have an accuracy rate of 100%.
What are the most common food intolerances?
The most common food intolerances are wheat, dairy, yeast and sugar.
What are the common symptoms?
Common symptoms are; Bloating, IBS, skin problems, lack of energy, headaches and hormonal problems. Food intolerances can also create other symptoms that have not been mentioned.
What happens after the test?
After the test I will suggest alternatives if required and discuss the process of the elimination diet.
The cost of the session is £60 and takes about an hour. I will cover approximately 90 foods plus a vitamin and mineral analysis. A non-refundable deposit of £20 is required upon booking.
