What is Bio-Energy Testing®

Bio-Energy Testing® involves the use of a VO2/VCO2 measuring device. VO2/VCO2 systems are commonly used in hospitals and athletic centers all over the world. During the test, you will wear a mask similar to a scuba mask. The mask will have a tube that connects to an analyzer that measures and records in real time how much oxygen your body uses and how much carbon dioxide it produces. Since the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide it produces happens in your mitochondrial this data can then be used to measure your mitochondrial function. Bio-Energy Testing uses a patented computer program to analyze the data and determine how efficiently your mitochondria are producing energy. A series of measurements are taken at rest and while exercising. The test is safe, easy, and takes about 45 minutes. The Bio-Energy Testing® computer program then calculates:

  • Your resting mitochondrial efficiency. This is the most accurate way to determine thyroid function.
  • Your resting fat metabolism.
  • Your maximal mitochondrial efficiency.
  • Your maximal fat metabolism.
  • Your optimum carbohydrate intake.
  • Your optimum caloric intake.
  • Your caloric expenditure at various point of exercise.
  • Your lung function.
  • Your overall strength and fitness.
  • Your optimum exercise zones.

How Does Bio-Energy Testing® Work?

The Bio-Energy Testing analyzer measures oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production.

Oxygen consumption directly determines mitochondrial efficiency. Carbon dioxide production determines fat metabolism. Optimum carbohydrate intake is determined by the ratio of oxygen consumption to carbon dioxide production. Overall strength is determined by the amount of work you are capable of per unit of energy produced. The Bio-Energy Testing analyzer sorts and analyses an enormous amount of data and calculates your energy production dynamics under both resting and exercise conditions. Bio-Energy Testing algorithms present the results of these calculations in a way that can have immediate clinical relevance.

Who Should Be Tested?

People who believe that it is more important to live well than to live long and that ideally, we can have both.

People who want to finish out their lives in “great shape,” free in large part from the incapacity, limitations, medications, and diseases that so frequently affect the over sixty crowd.

Athletes who want to scientifically optimize their training.

Non-athletes who just want to design the most efficient exercise program.

People who cannot control their weight.

People who feel great now but realize that they need to be proactive in order to stay healthy as they get older.

People who feel tired or weak but cannot find out why.

People who want to monitor their mitochondrial status as they get older to make sure that what they are doing is working.

The key to achieving all of these goals is to optimize your energy production to youthful levels.

John's Case – A Case Study

John (the name is fictitious, but the case is not) is a 64-year-old man who loves life. He decided to measure his overall status and mitochondrial function because he wants to be as healthy as he can be. John knew that being healthy is a lot more than just not being sick.

John had the usual symptoms typical of a man his age, noting a decrease in his physical and mental performance from what he had enjoyed as a younger man. His comprehensive anti-aging evaluation revealed a healthy man with various commonly seen biochemical and hormonal imbalances. His Bio-Energy Testing results showed that his mitochondrial function was significantly lower than optimum. That means that even though he was healthy and getting along just fine, his body had aged to the point that he was producing energy with an efficiency that was steadily declining. In the long run, this energy deficit was putting John's health in serious jeopardy. John knew he wasn't getting any younger, but he had underestimated just how fast he was losing ground. This is typical. Mitochondrial efficiency can decrease steadily even while we feel great.

When he received the news John's response was, "I don't care what I have to do Doc, I just want to be healthy thirty years from now." Armed with this motivation and the information from his assessment, his doctor established a targeted, individualized lifestyle, nutritional, hormonal, dietary, supplement, and exercise program for John.

The good news is that John really responded rapidly. Six months later his mitochondrial efficiency had improved to a level that was typical for a much younger man. And he was feeling and performing on a much higher level than he had experienced for quite a few years. Within six months his body had gone from functioning like a 65-year-old to that of a man over 20 years younger.

John's case is not all that unusual and just underlines how effective currently available anti-aging strategies can be. Additionally, not only is he feeling better, but he has also reversed every single disease risk factor that his doctors had discovered. Taking care of sick people year after year makes doctors realize more than most people that improving vitality and preventing disease is a lot better than even the most remarkable cure.

Finding A Bio-Energy Testing® Center

Bio-Energy Testing® was first introduced to the health care profession in 2004, and since then new Centers have been continuously opening up in both the United States and around the world.
