Allergy Therapy in Bristol at the Chiron Centre
Why might I need allergy therapy?
The number of people with food or inhalant allergies has increased dramatically in recent years and Bristol will be no exception to this. It is estimated that 25% of young children and up to 60% of adults now show symptoms associated with food reactions.
What causes allergies?
There are many reasons why some people react to certain foods while others digest them with ease. For many, it is a combination of factors related to their lifestyle, their digestive health and the environment in general. Examples are :
- lack of variety in the diet
- high consumption of preservatives and artificial flavours
- increased chemical pollution in the air, water and food
- impaired digestion due to lack of stomach acid and enzymes.
- candida overgrowth in the digestive tract
- mercury amalgam poisoning
- genetic predisposition
What symptoms could be caused by allergies?
Many common symptoms and signs could suggest the possibility of food intolerance or allergy. For example:
- bloating and fluid retention
- dark circles under the eyes
- swollen glands
- intestinal pain
- constant fatigue
- racing pulse after meals
- excessive phlegm
- asthma or eczema
How can you help me?
At the Chiron Centre, we have two ways to help you. Claire and Andrew practice kinesiology and can support you through that therapy. Victoria uses the Bioscan SRT screening system, which she will describe for you later. Let’s start with kinesiology:
Identifying food sensitivities with kinesiology – Claire and Andrew
Using kinesiology (gentle muscle testing) we can identify both the problem foods, chemicals and inhalants along with any underlying causes. As well as identifying the problem foods from a rage of about 120, the treatment will identify:
- The underlying health of your digestive system, including levels of enzymes, stomach acid and bacteria.
- Whether you are affected by any wider imbalances that could aggravate your symptoms, such as parasites, candida overgrowth, mercury poisoning, stress or ‘leaky gut’.
- Other more subtle stresses, like residual trauma and emotional upset.
- What steps you should take to redress any imbalances.
The good news is that many food and inhalant sensitivities can be corrected when the underlying cause is addressed, especially if the offending items have been avoided in the meantime.
If we are working with babies and toddlers who are too young to muscle test directly, we will use the mother as a surrogate. This is just as accurate, as all mothers are energetically connected to their child, especially in the first few years. One aspect to consider if you are concerned about your baby is whether the issue originates with you or your child. Who should be tested? If you are still breastfeeding it may be your diet and overall health that is most important. What is the environment like in the household? Are there stresses that your child is picking up on? We often start with the child and then realise that it is the parent who needs the most support.
One final point, we must mention that we are not medical doctors so cannot legally identify allergies. Only a doctor can officially give you that medical diagnosis. We are looking for foods and other factors that stress your energy field, that might not sit harmoniously with your body’s needs.
Health and Nutrition MOT and allergy / intolerance testing by Victoria Collar
The BioScan SRT tests for stressors on your body and helps the practitioner decide the best course of action to balance your response to those stressors so that your exposure to those substances does not cause stress for you in the future.
The BioScan SRT system yields a report with the following information:
- Substances and groups identified.
- Level of severity for each item.
- Whether the substance contributes to a chronic or acute condition.
Around 500 substances are tested with the Bioscan which is a class II medical device to determine which substances are causing your body stress and resulting symptoms.
The results are clearly plotted on a colour coded computer giving accurate and objective results. You will see clearly if the substance is making your body imbalanced stressed or weakened, and to what extent.
The scan is non invasive, painless and suitable for babies to the elderly.

Testimonials for Victoria
“My son who is 12 has had eczema since birth, all over his legs and body, he scratches it until it bleeds, I have tried so many things but nothing has made a difference. After the course of Bioscan Stress reduction therapy his skin is 80% better! I am so pleased with the results, I cannot recommend this highly enough”
“I have been suffering with skin soreness and itchiness for years, the Doctor just gave me creams to alleviate it including a steroid cream which I now know thins your skin. Victoria went through the scan process with the Bioscan and found that I was allergic to a chemical used in the making of fabric. How else would I have known that!? I no longer need the creams and don’t dread the tube commute where previously I got hot and itchy.”
“My allergies have drastically improved, Dust mites, pollen and Blossoming flowers showed up on the first scan as being huge stressors to my body. I was constantly using Piriton, nasal spray and eye drops, I no longer rely on any of those and my eyes are no longer itchy and watery all the time. This is a great Health scan, it was fascinating to see what it picked up and how my body is coming back in to balance and improving with each scan – The proof is all there!”
“I bought a scan as a Christmas gift to my Dad for a Health MOT, I was so glad and relieved to see the results – we have all had a scan now – all the family! It flags up things that need to be addressed and puts your mind at ease with other things.”
“I have seen the results for myself, I was feeling so constantly tired, we got to the bottom of what was happening when I was scanned, Victoria did a full analysis of my body to see what it was doing internally and based on this was very helpful and knowledgable about eating the right foods and taking the right supplements for me. I feel very different 3 weeks on, buoyant in fact – Worth every penny!”
“I had the food intolerance testing done, I found it really good value as the online testing I had done a year ago was the same price but tested for half the foods and is so impersonal. I liked sitting in front of the screen watching the results come up immediately. A good easy to read report with surprising results that explained ALOT!!!”
