Questions and Answers for BioMeridian and Stimulus Response Testing



Q: What is Biomeridian Testing?


A: A non-invasive way to assess the energy meridians (pathways) of the body. It can determine stresses, balanced or weak body systems. For example, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, etc.


Q: What is the cost of the BioMeridian Assessment?


A: The initial assessment is $95, follow up assessments are $80. Although the basic assessment is very comprehensive, there are additional evaluations from the Stimulus Library that may be necessary to evaluate. This does not include the cost of the supplements you may need to purchase to bring your stressed or weak points back into balance.


Q: Who would benefit from this evaluation?


A: The assessment would benefit anyone interested in examining and improving the functional status of their body. This applies to those who are not well and looking to improve their health as well as those who have no diagnosable illnesses but would like to optimize their current state of health and possibly prevent future negative health issues.


Q: What is the difference between a BioMeridian Assessment and a Stimulus Response Assessment?


A: The BioMeridian assesses the stressed, weak or balanced body systems. The Stimulus Library assesses imbalances with food sensitivities, heavy metals, individual vitamin and mineral nutrients, environmental allergens, candida, parasites, hormones, chemical sensitivities, etc. They are two separate evaluations typically evaluated at different times, but can be done in the same visit by scheduling both appointments. Allow 1-1 ½ hours for both appointments. For the Biomeridian Assessment only, the test takes approximately 20-30 minutes to measure the points. Allow 45 minutes to an hour for your appointment.


Q: What should I expect during an evaluation?


A: The examination is performed by testing 58 acupoints on both the hands and feet which relate back to the energy channels and their related organs or systems. This testing does not involve needles, only a stylus probe is used to send a very small electrical current (not a shock) through each point. Be prepared to sit up during the evaluation and wear comfortable clothing to relax.


Q: What do I need to do before the assessment?


A:  It is recommended that before being tested you:

            1. Drink 8 to 16 ounces of water at least 2 hours before appointment

            2. Do not exercise for 6 hours prior to appointment

            3. Do not use lotion on your hands or feet

            4. Remove all jewelry

            5. Turn off your cell phone

            6. Complete the BioMeridian Disclaimer Form on the services page


Q: Why should I do a Stimulus Response Assessment?


A: Many patients with medical conditions such as asthma, ADD, eczema, rosacea, environmental allergies, IBS, fatigue, dermatitis, joint and muscle pain, migraines, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Immune disorders, etc…have often found relief by identifying food sensitivities and points out of balance. In addition individual vitamins can be measured to see deficiencies. Supplements can be evaluated to ensure you are taking the proper supplement with your body on the balancing plate.


Q: Does insurance cover the evaluation?


A: Insurance does not cover this expense. This test does not provide a medical diagnosis. This test does not provide a medical diagnosis. If you suspect you may need medical intervention, you should consult your physician.


Q: How many times will I have to be re-tested?


A: You will return on a monthly basis until the balance has been fully restored. How long this process will take depends upon how far out of balance you are. A nutritional food plan is just as vital as taking the supplements to ensure faster results.


Q: Can I bring my vitamins in for assessment?


A: You can book a vitamin assessment appointment to evaluate the vitamins you are currently taking to ensure they are the right for you. The appointment is $40.
