Asyra Pro Food Intolerance Test – My Experience and Results
Posted 27 November 2011 15:11
I lead a fairly healthy lifestyle by eating healthy food and competing in a lot of sports. I’ve learned a lot about which foods are good for you, which are not so good and which should be avoided, but I have never had a test to see which foods are good or bad for me as an individual. So when I saw an offer (£59 instead of £195) for an Asyra food intolerance test, I decided to give it a try.

Here is a video demonstrating the use of the Asyra.
My session was a three part process
- Answered a few questions (what do I eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, do I get stressed, do I take medication or supplements, have I had any ill health – that sort of thing)
- Held 2 metal rods while an electric current was passed through my body – I didn’t feel anything while this was being done. This was done twice. They used an Asyra Pro device
- A brief run-through of the results, which were then e-mailed to me
What I liked about the Asyra test:
- The session was that the test is very quick, simple and non-invasive (i.e. you don’t have to roll up your sleeve to get poked, prodded, pricked or jabbed with a needle!)
- The person who conducted the test seemed quite knowledgeable about food and intolerances , he said he had conducted over 1,000 tests over the past year
- The session only took around 20 minutes (mostly talking) and it didn’t feel rushed
What I didn’t like about the Asyra test:
- The test seemed too easy – I mean, all it did was pass an electric current though my body. It seemed far too fast. I’m not a doctor and I don’t know any detail behind the science of the test (only what I’ve read online, which is an overview), but it just felt ‘too easy’ – having said that, it is a medically approved device and is claimed to have a very high accuracy
- The technology is based on bio-energetic medicine and (according to their website) ‘thousands of years of development in Chinese medicine and over 50 years of technology refinement’. I am not a fan of traditional Chinese medicine
- It claims to be able to test for ‘too many’ things in my opinion
- I’m glad I didn’t pay the full price of £195!
My Asyra test results
- Helping You Understand Your Asyra Report
- Foods (this lists the food intolerances the Asyra has detected I have)
- Vitamins (this lists which vitamins the Asyra suggests I am deficient in)
- Intolerance to cucumbers: I have cucumbers most weekdays (only about 5 slices, in the Pret a Manger chicken salad). The practitioner said I should try not eating any for a week
- Blueberries: A few years ago I went through a ‘summer-phase’ of eating a lot of blueberries – to snack on while at work and every day at home. I didn’t have any obvious adverse reactions
- Baking powder: I don’t recall ever having an adverse reaction to cake – only a compulsion to eat more!
- Connective Tissue Resonance: I currently have a bad knee due to a sports-related injury
- Enzyme Deficiencies (generic): The practitioner said I may lack some enzymes needed to fully break down and digest pasta. I sometimes get indigestion if I eat a lot of pasta, so I could try eating pineapples (or pineapple juice) or taking supplements
It’s too hard to avoid treats at work and at home between now and Christmas (the worst time of the year for people to try to eat sensibly), so I’m going to write up a ‘cue card’ for myself and ensure that I stay away from foods that this test says may be bad for me between January and March.

What wasn’t explained to me is what effects (if true) these intolerances might have on my body.
What do you think? If you have had an Asyra test, what did you think of the results? Did avoiding food that it says you are intolerant to result in any noticable difference to your wellbeing?
Also, I have e-mailed them to ask if the Asyra results can be output in a format other than PDF, but they haven’t replied. Please let me know if you know!
