Allergy Testing Machine

The Food intolerance test I use is carried out using a quick, non-invasive, electro-magnetic procedure which gives you immediate results.

I trained for this specialised therapy with Fiona Gibson. All therapists are specially trained, by using a simple, painless food intolerance test, to pin point potentially harmful foods that could be causing your symptoms.

Equipment used

The machine I use is a di etx machine. The Di etx machine is highly sophisticated and measures changes in the body's resistance.

What does a test involve?

Electro Dermal Screening is where an electronic device via the skin measures one point. Equipment that measures this energy is sometimes known as bio energetic, bio resonance, or EAV. The Di Etx works on a physics principle measuring resistance by picking up on energy readings, which then goes through the machine creating a circuit.

A reading is then taken using a suspect 'sensogen' (a sensitivity sample such as food, dust or pollen). Once the potential sensogen ampoule has been placed in the honeycomb module, the machine will quickly analyse the difference between the baseline reading and the sensogen that has been introduced. The tester can then compare the two sample readings and interpret the results.

Over 100 substances that include common foods and drinks are tested during a consultation. If a substance is causing a problem then it will affect the body's electrical resistance. The test is completely painless and is best described as a ball point pen touching the tip of your finger upon an energy point.

This test is not a medical diagnosis but a useful test to pin point potential foods that may be causing you a problem with about an 80% accuracy.
