Over two thousand years ago the Chinese observed that some people responded badly to certain foods causing deterioration in physical and mental health.
As the quality of the food we eat has deteriorated and the influence of “Convenience” processed Foods and Fast Foods, “on-the-run”, the strain on our bodies’ digestive system has increased dramatically.
The effects of making poor choices in our nutrition is demonstrated almost every night on popular television through programmes such as “You Are What You Eat” and “The Diet Doctors”.
While less than 2% of the population suffer from classical food allergies, some researchers estimate that up to 80% of the population can suffer from food intolerances. It can affect anyone at any age, but since symptoms often occur some time after the food has been eaten it can be difficult to find the problem food without being tested for intolerances. For example, the milk or bread eaten on one day could be the cause of joint pain three days later.
Some food intolerances are caused by digestive enzyme deficiencies or chemical sensitivity, others by poor gut bacteria balance, intestinal parasites, candidiasis or leaky gut syndrome.
Frequent early symptoms of food intolerances include:
The good news is that not all intolerances are permanent. The beneficial result of a directed Elimination Diet Plan and either acupuncture or nutritional / herbal remedies to strengthen your digestive function and eliminatory organs means many foods can be safely and comfortably reintroduced to the regular diet at a later date.
Acuhealth offers 3 methods to identify and treat food intolerances.

The MSAS Professional System represents the latest in 21st century health screening technology combined with acupuncture principles. This advanced profiling Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement (BIM) instrument is non-invasive, safe and quick. The software module effectively analyses, profiles and interprets impedance measurement data to present client profiles in a simple, effective and easy to use format.
The BIM Assessment is a state-of-the-art tool designed to measure 58 different electrical "circuits" in your body related to specific organs and systems. These circuits map the meridian system known to acupuncture theory. Your measurements are then compared against a database of over 1.5 million tests to identify areas of your body that have moved away from the norm. With that powerful information the BIM assessment software will assist in effectively formulating a comprehensive support programme that includes detailed recommendations for an optimal supplementation regimen customised to your specific needs. The BIM assessment is based on the six-phase table of Homotoxicology.
Accurate and objective results are available in under 30 minutes. The test results are colour-coded in an easy-to-understand take-home report containing your specific recommendations and monitoring can be tracked easily - visit to visit.
Homotoxicology is the understanding that most diseases are considered to be ultimately caused by toxins, whether toxic chemicals, bacterial exotoxins, biological endotoxins, post-traumatic cellular debris and also by-products of the bodies metabolic processes.
Disease symptoms are the result of the body's attempt to heal itself. Homotoxins include, dysbiosis (unhealthy micro-organisms in the gut) often due to an unhealthy diet, HRT, antibiotics, chronic yeast infections (candida), toxic mercury amalgam fillings, gas, diesel and petrol fume intolerance, exposure to unhealthy electro- magnetic fields, pesticides, and undiagnosed bacteria.
Meridian Stress Assessment System (MSAS), also called Bio Energetic Stress Testing (BEST), is a simple, quick and effective way of determining how your body is functioning. MSAS health screening can also accurately monitor your nutritional levels, hormone balance, food sensitivities, environmental sensitivities and toxin levels. The results from health screening allow accurate recommendations of herbs, nutritional supplementation and remedial action to promote health and healing. A printout of the results is provided immediately with a summary of findings and recommendations.
