The vega test is a naturopathy diagnostic system NOT recognized by traditional medicine.
It is used to reveal any organ malfunctions ( kidneys , liver , endocrine and exocrine glands, etc.) or to identify adverse reactions to foods .
The vega test is therefore the progenitor of the current tools for the diagnosis of food intolerances ; however, its operating principle is based on quantum physics, a theory not yet unequivocally accepted by the scientific community.
It was invented by Shimmel, even if the various basic “discoveries” related to its functioning would be attributable to the German physician Reinhold Voll. He, only half of the last century, tried his hand in what is now still call electro acupuncture (EAV).
Voll began by evaluating the electromagnetic charge of the Chinese acupuncture zones, respectively communicating through fixed meridians: 12 according to the classical discipline, plus another 8 that he discovered by himself. These meridians connect the organs to the great sensitivity points, leaving to runa specific electric current (object of the analysis). By standardizing the evaluation, Voll devised a particular diagnostic method to identify any alterations in this electric charge; moreover, he understood (so to speak) that each organ had a particular frequency, instead not found in the others. Finally, by applying substances to these points, the doctor realized that “particular” reactions were taking place; that’s how he developed the Medicament Test.
Only in 1976, Shimmel invented the real vega test.
How does it work?
The vega test is based on the operation of an electronic device.
This tool, interacting actively and passively with the human organism, should provide data on certain organ disorders ( pancreas , liver, etc.) or on various forms of altered tolerance to foods .
The vega test communicates with the organism through the continuity of an electric cable, at the end of which two electrodes are placed; one fits into the instrument, the other is applied to the skin .
In the vega test there is a specific housing in which special vials containing a liquid in solution must be loaded. For example, by inserting the specific vial for the liver and applying the electrode to a specific point of the body (on the skin ), the vega test would measure its bioenergetics and detect any compromises of this organ.
As can be easily deduced, the vega test does not enjoy any reliability. To eliminate any doubts, in January 2001 an experiment entitled ” Is electrodermal testing as effective as skin prick tests for diagnosing allergies? A double blind, randomized block design study ” was published ; the study concluded that ” the results of the electrodermal tests did not correlate with those of the skin tests. The electrodermal tests did not distinguish atopic and non-atopic subjects. No element of the Vega test device was better than the others and no atopic state of each single participant was consistently diagnosed . ”
The vega test is therefore not an effective method for diagnosing organ disorders or various food intolerances .
