What is Vega Testing?
Allergy-testing, Mineral & Vitamin deficiency testing, Environmental Stress testing. Vega-testing is the name given to a testing procedure using a Vega machine, which enables an investigation into the functioning of a person's system. Vega-testing uses sophisticated electronics combined with the sciences of acupuncture and homoeopathy to determine such factors as food and environmental allergies, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, stressed organs, toxins in the body, and chronic stress factors. The testing procedure is simple and painless, and is carried out as follows: The patient holds an electrode in the hand and the practitioner uses a probe on an acupuncture point on the foot or the hand whilst ampoules of homoeopathically prepared substances are placed into the Vega-machine. Readings are taken and interpreted by the practitioner.
The Vega Machine readings produce a negatve and positive response. This is interpreted as an allergic or non-allergic reaction to the substance. Asthma, rhinitis, eczema, psoriasis, irritable bowel sundrome, headaches/migraines, depression, irritability, hyperactivity and many other symptoms besides can arise as an allergic/intolerance response. Once the allergens are know, then steps can be taken to reduce or eliminate exposure to the offending substance with a consequent improvement in health. However, allergies in themselves may not be the final answer, - being allergic should be seen as a symptom of stressed system, and in this circumstance, identifying and resolving the stresses (stress factors include toxins, viruses, bacterial infections and nutritional deficiencies) will then result in reduced allergic response.
Vitamin and Mineral Deficiency
The Vega Machine's positive or negative result indicates whether or not there is a deficiency of a vitamin or a mineral. Vega testing actually screens for the whole spectrum of vitamins and minerals including the all important vitamin D. The test does not determine an excess, though there are means by which an excess can be determined. Mineral/vitamin shortages are more common than many people believe and there are three main factors in this situation. Firstly the modern diet is high in processed and refined foods and low in raw, whole foods. Every stage of food processing reduces the nutrients in the food - for example, up to 50% of the vitamin content is absent from tinned vegetables. In addition the consumption of sugar and other highly refined carbohydrates depletes the body of chromium and magnesium.
Secondly, conventional/chemical farming produces crops from soil that is topped up with only the minerals necessary for crop growth as opposed to the mineral variety present normally, animal feed is as deficient for the animals as processed food is for humans. And thirdly, most people do not eat the World Health Organisation recommended minimum of five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables per day. It is easy to see why mineral and vitamin deficiencies are so common, and considering that vitamin/mineral excesses also cause problems, correct supplementation, if needed, is important.
Environmental stresses that can cause disease appear to have been obscured from orthodox medicine despite having a myriad of contributing health factors. Recent years have seen the health of the UK population deteriorating, despite more and more money poured into the NHS, more and more drugs are hitting the market, more and more billions spent on cancer research - yet more and more people get cancer, new diseases are appearing (M.E., Aids, necrotising fasciitis, hepatitis type H, J, L, . . . Z etc.), old diseases are re-appearing more virulent than ever before. The missing factor may well be environmental stresses such as mercury, lead or aluminium, pesticides/fungicides and other poisons from food and the environment, electromagnetic stresses (from our technology), parasite infestation (from the water or the food chain). These things are difficult to diagnose clinically but a full Vega-test can determine whether these and other factors are present.
