Bioelectrical Impedance Measurements (BIM), using the latest sophisticated technology

As part of your nutritional consultation, why not include a test with my Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement (BIM) machine to help investigate further the possible cause of your health problems? There is a small additional cost for this, but the results of the test will give a much greater insight into where the imbalances are in your body.

What is Bioelectrical Impedance?

BIM analyses energy at meridian points and this indicates probable areas of imbalance in the different body systems.  This form of health assessment is based on research which established that there is a network of energy channels, called meridians, around the body, many of which correspond to acupuncture points.  By measuring the electrical conductivity at these meridian points, disturbances in body function can be detected.

What does it involve?

The process of assessment is safe and non-invasive and involves using a probe to apply a tiny electrical current (which is completely painless) to 58 key meridian points.  The electrical conductivity at these points is recorded and sophisticated software analyzes the meridian data and generates an easy-to-read chart which identifies areas of the body that have moved away from normal.  A reading of 50 is ideal, above 50 indicates stress or inflammation while below 50 indicates weakness or degeneration. In addition to highlighting which body systems need attention, the software can be used to generate a personalised supplement programme to complement the dietary and lifestyle changes recommended to help you get your body back into balance and symptom-free.

What do I need to do?

If you are interested in this screening process, please let our receptionist know and she will allocate the appropriate time so that the test can be included during your nutrition consultation. The day before your appointment, please:

  • Don’t drink any alcohol.
  • But do drink at least 1.5-2 litres of water in the 24 hrs before your test.

On the day of your appointment, please:

  • Do not wear any jewellery that you do not wear on a regular basis. Wedding rings, for example, are fine, but you will be asked to remove any jewellery that you do not consistently wear.
  • Do not put any creams or powder on your hands or feet, as this may interfere with the results.
  • Make sure that you do not have your mobile on your person.
  • Make sure that you are well hydrated.  Drink water or non-caffeinated herbal drinks rather than teas and coffees.

If you would like further information on this test, then please contact one of our receptionists
