As part of Christine’s unique approach, she is also able to offer her clients further insight into what may be contributing to their ill health through the use of Vega Testing, for which she is a qualified practitioner.

Vega Testing is a non-invasive, painless, diagnostic tool which uses the body’s sensitive electromagnetic system to get clinically relevant results indicating foods, additives or environmental substances which may be causing a disturbance in the body.

Chemicals used in the modern-day production and storage of foods such as wheat, yeast, sugar, emulsifiers, preservatives, colourings, stabilisers (all found in something as simple as a humble ham sandwich) can have a dramatic effect on the health of an individual. The difficulty comes in identifying these triggers when ingredients in even simple foodstuffs can be incredibly complex and symptoms may not appear immediately after eating, which makes working out what is causing ill health an arduous task from deduction alone.

Using Vega Testing, Christine is able to quickly and precisely test hundreds of substances and ingredients to read the body’s electromagnetic response and clearly identify which stressors are causing a negative reaction.

The Vega Machine produces a positive or negative reading which is interpreted as an allergic or non-allergic reaction to the substance, allowing you to examine literally hundreds of different potential allergens in a very short space of time.

The Basic Vega Test assesses up 300 different food substances and additional tests can look for sensitivities to environmental substances (pollens, fabrics, dust etc), e-numbers, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, hormone deficiencies and organ imbalances.

Some indications of food sensitivity include persistent symptoms such as:

  • low energy
  • prolonged nausea
  • irritability
  • constipation or diarrhoea
  • headaches/migraines
  • skin rashes
  • an unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • congested sinuses
  • bloating or stomach cramps
  • frequent sneezing
  • excessive belching or flatulence
  • watery or red eyes

Christine uses a Vega machine to assess reactions to substances suspected of causing health disturbances. Vega testing involves you holding an electrode connected to the machine whilst test substances are placed in the machine. Your reaction to the test substance is assessed by using a stylus on an acupuncture point on the hand or toe. There is no requirement for blood tests or needles and the process is in no way intrusive or uncomfortable.
Clients are also welcome to bring along any foods or other substances suspected of causing problems.

What clients are saying about me

HC, Wokingham

My daughter is a typical lively 7 year old but on regular occasion just the smallest thing can set her off on a major meltdown in the most embarrassing of places over the most ridiculous thing in the world. After speaking to friends, family and doctors I was told this is normal and she will grow out of it but when your walking down the road to school and your child flips out because she remembered she put her left sock on before her right sock something had to give before I lost my entire sanity.

I took A to see Christine to see if there was something A could be allergic to which could be triggering this temperamental change. Christine was lovely, she was kind, patient and spent a long time testing samples on A and asking questions to A which made her feel extremely important J

We found that A has a dairy intolerance and when too much dairy is input A’s body is not a happy body. We also found that sugar additives are not a kind thing to A.

Since changing A’s diet with the help of Christine I now have my perfect daughter back and I am so grateful. A went to a party last weekend and with sweets, yoghurt and a cheese sandwich I felt like leaving her there but after a couple of days back on her new diet A is once again delightful.

Thank you Christine.
