Vega Testing Testimonial

My Experience With Vega Testing

When I visit my Naturopathic Doctor (ND), I am regularly tested for yeast, hormone balance (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone), thyroid, stress, B vitamins and organ function (kidney and liver). It has been my experience that these tests have often accurately indicated the beginning of a problem, sometimes before my family doctor found a problem.  On the flip side, I have had my family doctor make a diagnosis on some aspect of my health and the Vega test has confirmed the findings.

During one testing session, the Vega indicated an imbalance in my thyroid.  I have been on thyroid medication for twenty years, and in the last 10 years, my dosage has never had to change one little bit.  This imbalance in my thyroid, according to the Vega, coincided with symptoms of thyroid upset which I had been experiencing gradually over the past six months.  This cued to me to bring it up with my family doctor who ordered a blood test.   The blood test showed no change in my thyroid.  I tried doing some support for my thyroid through dietary measures, but I was still having no change in my symptoms.  I returned to my doctor six months later for another blood test.  This second blood test showed that my thyroid level, which had remained unchanged for the past 10 years had nearly ceased to function.  I concluded that the Vega has detected a change in my body’s chemistry which had not as yet translated into a change in blood level of thyroid hormone.

On another occasion, several years ago, a Vega test indicated a viral attack on my entire body.  From this test, my ND advised me that the virus may reveal itself through an erupting rash on my skin, which had not yet appeared.  A few days later the rash appeared and a blood test with my family doctor also revealed a strange viral infection.  As I have taken more and more responsibility for my health over the years, I have found the Vega test extremely useful as a tool to confirm a diagnosis.

Is Vega testing for you?  Because it is a completely painless and non-invasive test, what is the downside of trying it?  It may prove to be that extra piece of information that assists your ND in a more accurate diagnosis.  If you already see a Naturopathic Doctor, ask her if she uses Vega testing.  If you are just in the process of finding a Naturopathic Doctor in your area, this is the perfect time to ask the office uses this type of testing.
