When you take your car into the garage, the technician in the workshop hooks the engine up to a system to see what’s wrong with the vehicle. There’s now a newly-upgraded system called The BioScan SRT (Stress Related Therapy) Wellness System that allows you to do the very same for your own body.

Developed in the US by Innovative Health Technologies, there are just six systems in existence in the UK, all owned by qualified practitioners. The non-invasive and FDA-cleared biofeedback device tracks the body’s meridian lines via two electrodes placed on the middle fingers.

The system identifies stresses on the body and how severe they are. An initial consultation provides a 100-point wellness inspection that gives an overview of the general state of your health and gives you the information required to change external factors such as diet and other stressors.

The practitioner can then delve down deeper into individual “folders” to get more detailed information about certain stresses. The BioScan SRT system is capable of detecting over 50,000 different stressors and also provides a non-invasive therapy using bioenergetic frequencies and LED light therapy through traditional acupuncture points to condition the body and effectively manage the stress so that you maintain your optimal health.

One of the few systems in the UK is used by Gail Lummis, a Wiltshire-based nutritionist. “We are exposing ourselves to more stress than ever”, she said. “Whether it’s financial stress, family pressures, environmental stressors such as hay fever or pollen, work-related stress or other types of stress, these all take a toll on our everyday health”.

Once the stressors are identified, the therapy sessions use the BioScan Corrective Focus Tool to transmit a series of bio-energetic frequencies, unique to each individual, back into the body, conditioning it to no longer react negatively when exposed to the stressors.

The system received an overhaul to bring it completely up-to-date at the end of 2014. Gail was introduced to a predecessor of the system in 1997 when she was faced with the prospect of surgery owing to an impacted bowel.

After nearly 20 years working in the city, stress and lifestyle had taken its toll on her health and weight. Gail, now aged 49, was four stone overweight, a drinker and smoker. When surgery was advised, plus a lifetime on medication, a colleague mentioned the MSAS System, she tried it out and was able to use the feedback to significantly change her diet and lifestyle.

She then swapped her corporate life for a career in helping people with their health and nutrition. She now runs a private complementary health practice using her nutritional knowledge and the help of the BioScan SRT.

She said: “I am living proof that health screening with optimum nutrition can enable anyone to take back responsibility for their own health and well-being. I am privileged to be able to help others on the route to a balanced and symptom free way of life and can offer nutritional therapies based on both clinical and naturopathic nutrition as well as Advanced Profile Health Screening on the BioScan SRT.”
Vikki Champion, a Berkshire-based photographer, was astonished at the level of detail that the procedure revealed; Gail was able to tell her that a year-old dog bite injury was still causing stress to the body and even that she had a wood burning stove.

She was able to identify that she was sensitive to certain foods and with Gail’s help, to replace them with more suitable foods in her diet.

Vikki said: “I had been conscious that I needed to sort out my irritable bowel syndrome and knew diet would be a big contributor. When I met Gail I instantly knew she was the right person to help get me back on track.

“I was feeling good about doing something positive for myself, and also somewhat apprehensive before my first appointment but I needn’t have worried – Gail was brilliant, calm and positive.

“Over the course of my four treatments, I learned what aggravated my body from an environmental and physical point of view, especially an intolerance to wheat and cows’ milk. Having changed my diet, I have more energy, my skin, nails and hair look great and I dropped ¾ of a stone without trying which was a nice bonus. I can’t thank Gail enough for helping me to make this change. She’s brilliant at what she does, very knowledgeable and attentive, and I feel I have a much better view of my own health.”
