I would guess that about half of the Compass scans I’ve done make sense. We look at the results and say, “yup, I can see why it would recommend that to you.” The other half are a bit tricky and some interpretation might be involved.
Since I run the machine with the Good Herbs product line, I get a large range of results for everyone. The 300+ product catalog has such a vast number of health solutions, there is really no reason why one product would be recommended for many people. This makes every scan really fun and interesting. Usually I’m as surprised as the client is to see what’s been recommended.
The number one fact to keep in mind while scanning (or getting scanned for that matter), is that the machine is recommending products, not diagnosing diseases. There have been instances where the machine says to take extract “A” which consists of herbs used for respiratory illnesses, and the client happens to have a respiratory problem. But what also happens commonly is that the machine says to take extract “B” which has herbs that aid in liver function, but the client has no idea how their liver is doing. Or similarly, they don’t have any liver problems at all (this is hard to know, but if you took the example of headaches, the client would definitely know whether or not they have them). Sometimes we get bummed that the machine didn’t blow our socks off (as it sometimes does!) but I always remind them, the scan is recommending products, not telling you what you have. So although the client doesn’t have any real liver problems, for some reason that formula really resonates with their body.
My recommendation (as self-serving as it may sound…) is to always try the products! I’m as curious as the client is to see if the product really makes them feel better. There have been a number of instances where someone took a product they were recommended and had some (perhaps surprising) improvement to their well-being.
And why do I trust the results so much? I’d have to say it’s those several blow-your-socks-off scans that really do it. When the machine tells someone to take a flower essence combination for weight loss control – and weight loss has always been very important to them – I’m really impressed by this! On another occasion, a friend and I were discussing what she thought might pop up in her scan. She goes “it might tell me to take something for sleep because that’s the only problem I have right now”. Guess what? Number one result on her scan was a sleeping aid herbal combination.
Another big factor in the scan seems to be mental state. Since the Compass does rely on galvanic skin response, the results can be easily effected by temperature, mood, and thoughts. I tried testing this theory on family, and I had a relatively positive result. When running a scan with the Good Herbs product line you have the option of scanning for flower essences only. I ran one of these scans on myself when I was in a particularly unhappy state, and amazingly enough, it picked up on every single one of my negative emotions! Which brings me to my next point.
If you’re a bit skeptical about the Compass, try running all the individual scans on one person. For Good Herbs you have the following scan choices, “all products”, “single herbs”, “combination herbs”, “flower essences”, and “other”. Once you get your four tests back, check the results against each other. Were you recommended digestive aids multiple times? Did the herb ” milk thistle” show up in several places? I don’t usually run all these scans on clients because then they will have an overwhelming number of products to chose from- however it’s fun to test how similar the results stack up. Keep in mind though, that once you get scanned for “all products”, you should wait a few weeks before another scan so that it will be just as accurate.
Just my two cents on Compass scanning. Does anyone else have interesting results to share?
