Biosignature Modulation

What is BioSignature Modulation?

BioSignature Modulation is a systematic approach to losing unwanted body fat in specific locations "Spot reduction". The science behind BioSignature Modulation comes from skin fold data Charles Poliquin has gathered over the past 20 years and comparing his data against blood, urine and saliva tests to determine a clients specific hormone imbalance.
Charles Poliquin has discovered 12 specific sites that can be measured to scientifically determine what hormones need to be optimized and which supplements can be used to achieve rapid results in fat loss.

Biosignature Modulation allows a practitioner to look specifically at hormones in the body to determine what is holding the person back from meeting their weight loss goals.

Here's how Biosignature Modulation works.

There are 12 major body fat sites that can be quickly and accurately tested by a pair of quality skin calipers and a qualified technician. These sites include the cheek, chin, pectoral region, triceps, umbilical, supra iliac, subscapular, mid axillary, quadriceps, hamstrings, knee and calf. Although there are many other methods to test body fat, such as underwater weighing and electrical impedance, I believe that body fat testing with skin calipers is the best method to be used for Biosignature Modulation because it can determine precisely the amount of fat in each of the major fat-testing sites were other testing methods only tell you your percent body fat. Measurements from each site are then compared to the triceps reading and this identifies which areas of the body have excessive levels of fat relative to the other 11 body fat sites. Some people may have excessive fat in just one area, while others may have several problem areas. Most clients will already have a good idea of what their problem areas are and an experienced practitioner in Biosignature Modulation can often make an accurate visual determination of the problem, but the calipers are quick, easy and reliable.

Developing a Plan

Once the sites have been measured and analyzed the next step is to determine what areas are the most problematic. These areas are the primary targets and the sites we address first. For example, if the umbilical reading was the highest we would need to address the stress hormone cortisol and most likely sleep and stress. If the upper back were to be an issue we may need to address blood sugar handling. Lastly, if the upper thighs and buttocks was an the "trouble" spot estrogen detoxification would need to be addressed. After determining the highest priority sites the practitioner would next discuss diet, supplementation, and exercise recommendations. The biosignature program is designed to use diet, exercise and supplementation to eliminate troubled body fat and increase one's overall health.

The Biosignature Modulation program will always be in a constant state of growth as new and better research is constantly being published which improves the system. But now, for the first time, biosignature practitioners can effectively combat site specific areas of fat storage using a simple 12-point skinfold test, dietary changes, supplementation and exercise based on their individual biochemistry.
