EAV (aka Vega) Food Intolerance Testing
We perform food intolerance testing using the EAV, which stands for Electro Acupressure according to Voll (Dr. Reinhard Voll- a German physician and acupuncturist). It is a non-invasive energetic evaluation using a galvanometer, which research has suggested is about 70% accurate. We test for over 180 food substances and several food combinations, which cannot be tested with most other methods of evaluation. You can also be evaluated for dental material intolerances and environmental substances.
The EAV measures the skin resistance and electrical potential on an acupuncture point. A large hand electrode (the ground) is held by the patient and a tip electrode is touched against an acupuncture point by the physician. The resultant resistance is then measured. The response of the person to the individual food substances results in a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ reading, as tested on one acupuncture measurement point. There are no gradations of measurement (such as mild, moderate, strong).
EAV is being used as an investigative tool to determine the presence of possible sensitivities to foods, or other substances without directly exposing the patient to the potential irritant. It produces immediate results in a simple pain-free way. The doctor will explain how the patient can utilize this information (usually through a 6 week process of elimination and then reintroduction) in order to improve health and well-being.
