BioSignature Modulation is a non-invasive fat loss and wellness system developed by the world renown strength coach Charles Poliquin. The methodology behind this system assesses for possible correlations between fat storage and hormonal activity.

It’s important to note however, that the practice of BioSignature Modulation does not allow for the diagnosing, nor for the treatment of hormonal imbalances, despite what those in the fitness and wellness field may claim; nor should this form of assessment be viewed as a fat loss “spot reduction” system.

What is BioSignature?

Very simply, it is a tool that, when utilized properly, can give practitioners insight into an individual’s current physical state, and combined with other forms of assessment, allows the practitioner to individualize health and wellness programs for individuals.

How Does It Work?

The practitioner will utilize medical grade callipers to measure the 12 major body fat storage sites on an individual’s body, as well as examine their reported food log and assess their lifestyle habits.

Once the practitioner has collected this information, they will then put together a personalized nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle plan, and track progress over time.

The Practice of BioSignature Modulation

BioSignature Assessments are primarily performed by Naturopaths, Alternative and Complementary Health Practitioners, Health Coaches, and Personal Trainers, as long as they have been certified by the Poliquin Group to do so.

Because this form of assessment is primarily used in helping individuals improve their health, wellness, and lifestyle, it can be considered an adjunct form of assessment.

However, as mentioned above, any correlations spoken about in a BioSignature Assessment concerning fat storage and hormonal activity should not be construed for medical advice, nor does it imply that the individual suffers from a hormonal imbalance. Only a Medical Doctor can diagnose and properly treat hormonal issues, and the practice of BioSignature Modulation does not, and should never, replace Primary Care.

What’s important to consider, when hiring a practitioner who mentions performing a BioSignature Assessment, is to find out if the practitioner is question has qualifications beyond their Poliquin certification in a health field, in order to discuss health, wellness, and/or nutrition.

This certification alone should not allow practitioners to consult individuals over their health and wellbeing on its own merit. Therefore, caution should be used when selecting practitioners.
