We are now offering nutritional consulting and testing at our office. We currently are using the Bioscan MSA and Bioscan SRT to measure over 52 points on your body. This helps us to score your bodies different organs and systems. Based on this information we gather, we can also make strong recommendations for products that will heal your body.
Who needs this test performed:
- If you are experiencing symptoms that have been hard to diagnose
- If you are currently taking supplements but are not sure if they’re actually working or if you’re just wasting your money
- If you want to accelerate your progress with the care we provide at the office
- If you want get a nutritional edge by aging gracefully
- If you want to experience less allergies and sensitivities
- If you want to lose weight and have more energy
- If you want to find the magic formula that will take your body and your being to the next level of form and function
- If you want to experience better digestion, a stronger immune system, and more energy
- If you want to know what you need to detox before your money on a detox program that isn’t going to help you.
- And much much more… Isn’t it about time you stop guessing with your supplements, and start knowing what your body really requires to function at it’s very best?
IHT’s BioScan MSA (meridian stress assessment.) This is a test that can establish what it is that’s upsetting your body system and organ performance. The BioScan MSA, is an FDA-registered class II medical device that tests for stressors in your body in order to provide information for practitioners to personalize nutritional regimens to support your stressed and weakened organs. This device works in accordance with Dr. Reinhold Voll’s theory of conductance and Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg’s homotoxicology chart.
The theory of conductance says that we can measure your level of electric impedance – that is, is the amount of opposition that a circuit presents to current or voltage change – at specific acupoints connected to a network of meridians (or energy channels) linked to body organs. This allowed Dr. Voll to create the Electroacupuncture According to Voll – or EAV. Additionally, we use the homotoxicology chart (or human toxic management chart); an illustration below showing the human reaction to toxic attacks. Homotoxicology studies and explains the origins of disease and how to relieve it. Dr. Reckweg defines disease as the attempts of an organism to fight and expel toxins. The BioScan MSA makes use of these scientific breakthroughs to collect data and develop its own chart pinpointing which areas of your body are balanced, stressed, or weakened.
This device delivers low, non-invasive, pain-free electric current on various acupoints on your hands and feet to create an EKG-like circuit with a very sensitive and calibrated ohmmeter. The BioScan measures the impedance of the current and its continuous flow through each meridian and organ, and returns with the results charted in a user-friendly graphic that we call the “report of findings,” and which correlates the speed of transmission to a Voll reading of 0-100.
The BioScan MSA includes software that creates a plot of all the information we collect to a graphic that displays the organ and its stage of health. We can use this information to personalize a support regimen from the electronic library embedded in the software with more than 50,000 items for the choosing.
The Bioscan MSA performs electro-dermal screening to identify the acupuncture meridians of your body, giving an overall picture of the function of the organs and systems found along those meridians. The Bioscan MSA test measures the energetic profiles of organs, glands, immune system organs, musculoskeletal system, and allergies, among others. It employs passive electrical energy similar to an electrocardiogram or electroencephalogram. Each reading taken for all points is stored in a computer, which proceeds to develop a report. Readings above 55 – out of 100 – appear yellow and indicate excessive energy and possibly inflammation or sensitivity. Readings below 47 appear red and point to reduced energy, weakness, or a chronic condition or organ degeneration. A reading between 47 and 55 appears green and is a sign of a balanced meridian.
This test is very effective in aiding the practitioner because the patients energy is one of the first things affected by a person moving toward a health unbalance. We interpret the results of the test to help devise a treatment protocol for you – which may include dietary and/or lifestyle changes, vitamins, minerals, homeopathy, botanicals, detoxification programs, and more. We request patients to avoid using hand or foot creams and remove any magnets and cell phones from their persons before applying this test. No needles or skin puncturing are involved. This is not a medical procedure, and we are not attempting to diagnose medical conditions.
After your testing has been finished and interpreted, you will have a chance to sit down with Dr. Martin for 30 minutes to discuss a plan to best address your concerns. Dr. Martin will provide you with the best recommendations based on your health history and testing performed.
It’s really important to follow up after a course of treatment at our office. This is to evalate how effective the treatment has been, and to fine tune, alter, or change our plan to get the very best outcomes for you and your health. Re-testing is done at 30, 60, or 90 days afterwards.
