Vega testing can test for sensitivity to substances such as wheat, dairy, pollens and chemicals, as well as testing for vitamin and mineral imbalance. As a Vega practitioner, I can use this simple test to help identify which substances are causing problems.

You may or may not have some idea of the food or food groups that cause you a problem. However, it is really useful to keep a food diary for at least a week before testing.

  • Note what you eat & drink
  • When you eat & drink
  • How you feel after you eat or drink

It is important that you drink plenty of water before, as testing is most effective when you are hydrated

The Vega Test method uses two hand electrodes – one the patient holds, the other is a testing “pen” used by the practitioner. Both electrodes are attached to the Vega machine.

Vials of substances – food, drink, chemical etc – are put into the machine while the practitioner presses the testing pen onto an acupressure point on the patient’s hand.

The response of the patient’s body to each substance is determined by change in electro-magnetic conductivity and shown on the machine’s voltage meter.

Once problematic substances have been identified, we will discuss whether they need to be avoided, or whether combinations of foods may need to be changed or avoided.

It is useful to keep a food diary for a month until the next follow up appointment.

We will also talk about diet, lifestyle, and medical history, and as a registered homeopath, I will normally give a remedy to help with symptoms.

The Vega machine can also test for sensitivity to pollens and other substances – you can even bring something along, such as washing powder or medication to be tested in the machine.
