The Allergy Testing Procedure: How Does It Work?
Look at the picture above.
See that small blue and white box beside the laptop? That’s a SCIO medical device used to scan the body for food intolerances, sensitivies to environmental factors, and more. It reads and emits electromagnetic waves in a way similar to an EEG or MRI scan.
See the little red square on the woman’s wrist sitting on the left in the picture above? That’s the buckle on one of twelve electrodes placed on the body for electromagnetic measurement. The remaining electrodes are on her other limbs and around her forehead.
The computer – or to be more accurate, the software run on the computer – organises the information gathered, ranking intolerances and sensitivities on a numbered scale from chronic to acute. As shown in the picture above, these findings are discussed with you at length, so you’re empowered to make the right decisions regarding your health.

Food Allergy vs. Intolerance Testing
In the UK, medical doctors are the only professionals legally allowed to diagnose you with an allergy. The practitioners at The Bristol Centre for Biofeedback are fully trained and licensed, but Biofeedback and Bio-resonance therapy forms are not yet recognised by the NHS. Therefore, we kindly remind you to always consult your GP (General Practitioner), and get a second opinion if you are uncertain. Read our Disclaimers for more information.
Intolerance vs. Sensitivity to Allergens
When your body comes into contact with viruses, bacteria, and other harmful substances, it will release an IgE antibody into your bloodstream as its natural form of defense. When your immune system is over-reactive, however, it will trigger this response for common, non-harmful substances such as nuts, shellfish, trees, and pollen.
The level of your body’s reaction determines whether your allergy is classified as a sensitivity or an intolerance.
- Lactose intolerance can make you run to the loo within minutes of eating ice cream, drinking milk, or consuming other dairy milk products.
- Lactose sensitivity might not cause such a direct effect on the bowels, but could lead to feelings of bloating, irritable behaviour (connected to the irritable bowels), quick weight gain whilst struggling to shed pounds in spite of counting calories or other diet regimens.
In your full allergy scan, you’ll receive a complete list of your body’s sensitivities and intolerances, ranked in a numbered list from chronic to acute.
Which Environmental & Food Allergens Are Tested?
We scan your body for its compatibility, sensitivity, intolerance or allergic reaction to literally thousands of substances including known pathogens and allergens. Here is a list of the more well-known aggravators:
apples (apple varieties), bananas, beans (bean varieties), cucumbers, dust (house dust, rugs, carpet, furniture, other varieties), eggs, fish, gluten, grass (varieties of grass, clover and similar plants), kiwi fruit, nuts (nut varieties), peanuts, penicilin*, pharmaceuticals*, pollen, shell fish (lobster, shrimp, other varieties), soy, strawberries, trees (varieties), nickel, wheat
*Always consult your GP for confirmation of intolerances to these substances
Allergy Testing with Bio-Resonance
The video above is a short interview with an Australian Bio-Resonance practitioner on allergy testing with Bioresonance machines. He discusses differences between food allergies and food sensitivities / intolerances.
Did you know that Bio-Resonance Therapy has been used to treat allergies and allergic conditions as well? As early as the 1970s when the technology was still in its infancy, studies and trials were being conducted in German-speaking parts of the world.

Do You Have Questions About Allergy Testing in Bristol?
Our allergy scans are not currently covered by NHS. Unfortunately, not everyone who asks their GP for a traditional allergy test – such as a skin patch test or blood test – is able to receive one with costs covered by NHS. More and more people in the UK are turning to private allergy testing.
Some home allergy testing kits can cost between 60 and upwards of 250 Pounds Sterling. Our test scans for hundreds more known allergens, and costs only £50 and less than one hour of your time.
Yes. Allergy tests for babies and kids using Bio-Resonance is 100% safe. Children are welcome to sit in the lap of their guardians during the scan, and even play with non-electronic toys such as dolls or colouring books.
In the allergy test, the skin’s surface is not scratched, and neither is blood drawn, which makes it perfect for kids who are afraid of jabs, pokes and other sharp and scary-looking devices.
No, because the entire test is non-invasive. Most people, however, do report that after wearing the head harness, the electrodes leave indentations on their forehead for a short period of time. It might take 15-30 minutes for the marks to naturally disappear, depending on the elasticity of your skin, your circulatory system and other factors.
We haven’t had a chance to fully explore the Vega machine, but it appears that ours is quite different. Many machines claim to measure electromagnetic waves in the body, but the accuracy of that measurement can vary so widely that it makes reliability questionable. In our limited knowledge of Vega machines, the SCIO is a later and much more advanced form of electromagnetic therapy.
No. In Kinesiology, the patient’s arm is pressed down in a sort of ‘muscle test’ or bodily strength measurement. We do believe this method of testing has its merits, however, it does leave considerable room for human error in the interpretation of allergy vs. intolerance vs. sensitivity test results.

We provide holistic therapy, which is not a replacement for medical treatment. Please consult your general practitioner (GP) and/or trusted medical professional without delay and without disregard. We offer information, not medical advice nor diagnosis. We can neither promise nor guarantee to help every single individual. We do not claim to cure or treat any specific disease, condition, or ailment due to lack of sufficient clinical evidence of Biofeedback and Bioresonance Therapy in the UK according to §12.1 of the UK Code of Non-broadcast Advertising and Direct & Promotional Marketing (or “CAP Code”).
Due to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, it is unclear whether EU conformity markings – in particular the Conformitè Europëenne (CE) Mark, which regulates the safety of electrical devices for the EEA market – will continue to be recognised by the Advertising Standards and other Authorities in the UK. Therefore, although the S.C.I.O. Bio-Resonance device used at our Centre bears the CE mark, we do not make claims and indications that are medicinal or medical as allowed under §12.1 CAP Code.
