Bioscan technology is used for food intolerance testing at Dublin Vitality Centre. We use the best of holistic and medical technology for functional gut health programmes that aim to find the source of the problem and correct it.

At Dublin Vitality Centre clinics, we use FDA approved Bioscan Technology, a world leader in FDA approved functional medicine provision globally.

BioScan is an exceptional assessment tool that is designed to offer exceptional results immediately.

Like an EKG or EEG, the BioScan unit is an Ohmmeter and a class II medical device which measures a galvanic skin response when a safe current is applied at AcuPoints. These measurements are objective, reliable, and will guide you to the areas of the body that are balanced, stressed, or weakened

This system offers pain free instant results and is suitable for food intolerance testing along with organ analysis.

An extensive database of stressors of both potentially balancing and stressing substances can be accessed for further testing. You will be able to pinpoint both positive and negative resonances for more advanced testing resulting in ultimate patient care.

We offer both two tests at Dublin Vitality Centre clinics. Food Intolerance test or upgraded Food Intolerance and Full Body Mot Testing.

Q: What Is Stress Reduction Testing:

A: SRT is a remarkable new electro FDA approved system found in the most advanced clinics globally. A computerized scan or test is done to see what your body is sensitive to, and how it is out of balance, then help it learn not to be.

Q: What does the BioScan do:

A: Substances converted to a digital format, and presented in the form of sound and light, are what allow for patient assessment testing down to the molecular level. These are what make it possible to assess thousands of substance sensitivities in mere minutes, then allow the brain and nervous system to record a new association that is positive or neutral instead of the inappropriate ones that were previously stored in memory. This breaks the link between the stimulus and response, makes symptoms unnecessary, creates balance and harmony, from dis-ease and disharmony, and allows the body to function better .

Q: Is the BioScan Wellness System safe?

Yes In a very simple analogy, the BioScan emits sound waves during an assessment. Our electro acupressure device measures the patient's sensitivity which is no more harmful than listening to the radio at home or in your car.

Q: How many visits are needed?

A: The number of visits required depends on the patient, the extent or severity of their conditions and their state of overall health and well being. Some people choose to have another test to review their progress. Others we don't see again since the results and protocol clear the condition of concern. We recommend everyone undergoes the test yearly however, for preventative functional health.

Q: How long is a typical appointment?

A: BioScan Processing Sessions take approximately 30mins- 1 hour.

Q: When do patients notice improvement?

A: Individual timetables to achieve symptomatic relief will vary based on the individual's severity of conditions and state of overall health. Many patients notice an increase in their quality of health after the first or second visit.

Q: Are there any side effects?

A: No. A small percentage of patients report slight flushing or congestion for a short time (an hour or so) after their session, but this is actually a sign that the body is detoxifying (a good thing)! This process is safe, fast, non-invasive and painless. Unlike skin tests the actual substance is not used, so the body perceives its presence, it as if it were there, but does not act upon it.

Q: Is this testing and specifically the BioScan safe and effective for children?

A: Yes, the BioScan is safe for people of all ages, and is even successfully used by veterinarians on animals .

Q: What substances can the BioScan identify as stressors?

A: The BioScan contains tens of thousands of substances in the main procedure libraries and up to an additional 50,000 substances in the advanced procedure libraries. This electro acupuncture device can identify almost every known substance that could possibly cause a stress reaction. The BioScan contains some of the most comprehensive substance libraries of any devices of this type.

Q: I have heard of other devices using "digital signals" to assess allergies. How does the BioScan compare to them?

A: The BioScan is both patented and FDA-cleared for Neurological Relaxation Training or what we call Stress Reduction Testing. Please read about stress and energy and the direct relationship between stress and allergies as well as other symptoms and illnesses.

The BioScan is unique in that it is a fully automated electro acupressure device and can achieve objective results for an exponentially greater range of substances in a fraction of the time. The BioScan is fast, easy, painless, highly accurate, non-invasive and safe -- making it the best holistic device available.

The BioScan does not treat or cure allergies or any other types of illness or disease.

Q: What does the BioScan treat?

A: The BioScan Wellness System does not diagnose or treat any specific condition. Through the use of our FDA-cleared biofeedback technology, the BioScan is able to assess with a very high degree of specificity which substances create increased levels of stress to the body.

These specific stress inducing substances are often times what trigger the nervous systems fight or flight reactions which are expressed in a myriad of symptoms that have been scientifically proven to be associated with high levels of stress. "According to The American Medical Association (AMA), stress is the cause of 80 to 85 percent of all human illness and disease. Every week, 95 million Americans suffer some kind of stress-related symptom for which they take medication." Our belief is that through the use of our state-of-the-art technology, our electro acupuncture device can safely, effectively and quickly reduce stress which will therefore provide for increased health.

Q: How long with the results last after I complete treatment?

A: Results to date are termed indefinite. Patients and Doctors report elimination of symptoms without recurrence in most cases. Because allergies , sensitivities, and other health issues can develop in adulthood, elimination or alleviation of a symptom does not mean other symptoms may not present over time. We recommend a system checkup every three months for wellness maintenance after you complete your recommended protocol.

Q: What is the BioScan Focus?

A: The BioScan Focus provides substance specific stress reduction by emitting energy signals through the body's energy pathways. This energy trains the body to better handle the stressors that had previously resulted in increases stress levels.

Q: How can Stress Reduction Testing help everyone?

A: Because stress affects EVERYONE.

Preparing For Food Intolerance Test or Body MOT Health Test

It is important to note that we recommend you eat a sample of any food that has been avoided in the past 3 months if its safe to do so. A sample of the food must be in the body in the past 3 months in order for it to be detectable. This applies to all medical grade food intolerance testing. Do not eat foods that you are allergic to. Please avoid the use or steroids or anti-histamines as they may suppress your the bodies reactions.
