Holistic Healthcare offers a range of diagnostic tools to help uncover the root cause of your imbalances.
Vegatest works on the basis of electro acupuncture according to Dr. Voll (EAV). The Vegatest delivers an in-depth functional diagnosis based on Electrodermal testing and draws on knowledge from Traditional Acupuncture theory and Classical Homeopathic theory as much as from today’s most modern medical technology. The Vegatest identifies local inflammation points, stressed organs, recognizes inter-dependencies between organs and analyses the influence of viruses, bacteria or toxins. Nutrient and hormonal imbalances can also be assessed.
Testing involves the simple use of a probe onto the skin at specific acupuncture points and measures electromagnetic fluctuations in the body. The testing is painless and can also be used on children.
While the person is lying down, electrodes are attached to various parts of the body and a small electric signal is circulated. Simply explained, BIA measures the impedance or resistance to the signal as it travels through the water that is found in muscle and fat. The more muscle a person has, the more water their body can hold. The greater the amount of water in a person’s body, the easier it is for the current to pass through it. The more fat, the more resistance to the current.
Information which can be gleaned from a BIA:
*The amount of fat you carry
*The amount of musculoskeletal mass
*Your biological age.
The BIA is an integral part of our Shake It Weight Management
