Computerized Food, Organ and Candida Screening
How Does It Work?
test is non-invasive.
It works by measuring a very small electrical value in the skin
called resistance. Because of these gentle properties, this makes
the testing suitable for babies, small children, pregnant women and
elderly patients as well as the average healthy person. The
technology was first used in Germany about 60 years ago, but has
become more available in North America over the last several
years. There is no scratching or injections involved;
therefore, it does not break through the skin and it does not hurt.
What Symptoms Might Indicate a Sensitivity Reaction?
Symptoms may be chronic or acute as well as immediate, delayed or
cumulative. The following symptoms may indicate the possibility of
a sensitivity reaction:
Enlarged lymph nodes
Lowered immune system
What Can Be Tested?
Most commonly foods are tested, but it can also test
for Candida, microbes, environmental and inhaled items, phenolics,
chemicals, tooth weaknesses, enzymes, and organ imbalances via
How Accurate Is It?
results tend to be about 75% accurate or more clinically. Therefore
it is not perfect, but it does provide a good starting point for
finding answers to common health concerns.
How Does This Differ From An Allergy Test?
allergy is an adverse reaction involving specific factors of the
immune system. With a sensitivity reaction, any organ system can be
affected, and frequently these systems are more delayed (hours to
days) versus the typical immediate reactions that occur with an
When Will I Get the Results?
will receive a colour printout of your results at the time of the
test, along with some suggestions and handouts (if needed).
Will the Test
be Covered Under My Health Care Plan?
The sensitivity testing is
covered under most extended health care plans.
