WHAT IS A COMPUTERIZED HEALTH ASSESSMENT?
SpectraVision(TM) is a cutting-edge biofeedback technology that assesses the energy system (i.e. the acupuncture system) of the body to test how much stress you are under and where the stress is located in the body.
The testing examines the organs in each of the major systems of the body: Digestive, Hormone, Immune and Lymphatic (the detox system). It is a painless and non-invasive.
You can think of this type of testing as an energetic lab. Traditional bloodwork is a physical snap shot of what is circulating in your bloodstream. SpectraVision is an energetic snap shot of your body.
What is the acupuncture system?
Acupuncture meridians are channels of energy that flow through the body in specific locations. The meridian system has been studied for over 2,000 years in Eastern medicine. SpectraVision provides an analysis of the energy within the acupuncture meridians. Every major organ and gland has an acupuncture meridian associated with it. So when we assess the acupuncture system, we indirectly find out about the status of the organ and glands themselves.
The energy system, precedes and directs the biochemical and neurological networks of the body. Without communication there is confusion and chaos, internally as well as externally. Assessing and balancing the energy system enhances communication within the organs and cells of your body and enhances your ability to heal.
SpectraVision Finds Your Unique Stress Factors
This biofeedback technology measures your stress response to thousands of substances that can be potential stress factors. The stress factors can be toxins like pesticides and or heavy metals, or underlying infections like viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites. Or the stressors may be substances the body needs but isn’t metabolizing well such as hormones, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, etc. Even emotional and mental stress factors can be identified using SpectraVision. The best part of this test is that the stress factors are prioritized and we’ll know exactly what to focus on.
The Bridge Between Science and Complementary Medicine
SpectraVision’s roots begin from an energy testing method that is prevalent in England, in Eastern and Western Europe and Canada. Despite its successful history overseas, it remains an emerging field in healthcare in the United States. In 1954, Dr. Reinhold Voll, a medical doctor and an acupuncturist in Germany, developed a sensitive biofeedback instrument to accurately measure the energetic functioning level of the organs and systems in the body, as well as their responses to proposed products. He termed this E.A.V. (Electrical Acupuncture according to Voll). Today, this technology is advanced by interfacing the latest research in the human energetics, the biofeedback instrument, with sophisticated computer technology and the ability to code an exhaustive list of substances into the program.
What Makes SpectraVision Light Years Ahead of Any Other Technology?
SpectraVision has the ability to truly measure and compare all of the acupuncture meridians (energy pathways) simultaneously. SpectraVision automatically compares all the energy pathways to determine which are under stress. With other technology, a true simultaneous comparison of all the energetic pathways is not possible.
SpectraVision automatically tests for each person’s unique stress factors and PRIORITIZES them. Over 10,000 different substances can automatically be tested. No other technology has this automatic stress testing and the automated prioritization. This means that by using SpectraVision we are truly communicating with the patient’s body to determine what should be addressed. With other technology, you may be relying solely on the practitioner’s skill in determining the priorities for a patient. SpectraVision is a practitioner-independent evaluation.
This means the technology removes practitioner biases and opinions about how the patient “should” be supported.
The SpectraVision technology can be used to focus on the emotional stress and mental stress factors behind a patient’s situation or level of health.
Preparing for Your Appointment
- Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment time so that you can relax and complete any necessary questionnaires.
- Make sure you are well-hydrated. Begin ensuring proper hydration (1/2 your body weight in pounds = ounces of water to drink/day) at least the day before and day of your Scan.
- Avoid applying lotion to your arms and hands.
- You will be asked to remove all jewelry for the test.
- Continue your normal routine. Take your regular regimen if you take vitamins or supplements.
We want to test you as you “typically” are.
- Please bring with you all the natural remedies, nutritional supplements, and prescriptions that you are currently taking, if you are taking any. This is true for every office visit.
For the first part of the test, you will be connected to the scanning software by resting your right hand on a small pad of energetic sensors. The test last about five to six minutes and is PAINLESS.
For the remaining part of the testing, we will be using a small stylus to touch and measure the strength of specific meridians using acupoints on your fingertips. We will see which meridians are weak and which are over-energized or inflamed. These readings provide information about your body’s organs and glands.
We’ll review the results and then using the technology, determine which natural remedies and supplements will assist your body in dealing with your unique stressors. The goal is to find the right remedies and/or nutritional supplements that support and balance your body optimally. These natural remedies along with diet and lifestyle recommendations provide you with support for the healing process.
What is your ideal care plan?
The care plan depends on your goals and your current level of health. For patients on an aggressive care plan, a SpectraVision Scan may be recommended monthly. For those on a wellness or health management plan, a SpectraVision Scan may be recommended 1-2 times per year.
What should I expect while taking the natural remedies?
Everyone responds differently to the remedies. Some feel better, and symptoms begin to lessen. Some feel worse for the first week and then begin to feel better. It is not abnormal to have an initial detox reaction (stuffy nose, achiness, or the return of past symptoms). Many patients have no detox reaction at all. Some patients feel as though they are not sure if they feel different – yet good progress is seen with the next Scan results. Be assured that healing is occurring on a cellular level, even though you may not consciously feel it. You may begin to notice subtle improvements in your energy as weeks go by.
How long do I stay on the natural remedies and/or nutritional support?
Each patient is given unique recommendations, so the amount of time you would remain on supplements depends on your unique case. It is ideal to have your regimen checked periodically because as you change and heal, the products/the dosages that you need will change too.
How long will it take to reach my health goals?
It is important to realize that when it comes to your health, there is no quick-fix. Natural healing can take time. Your progress also depends on the severity of your symptoms and the aggressiveness of your care plan.
How can emotional/mental stress be addressed?
Some aspects of emotional/mental stress are identified by the SpectraVision Scan. Sometimes the realization of how much stress is affecting your body is the beginning of major change. Flower essence therapy is used as it helps take the edge of stress and helps with the mind-body connection.
