The BioSignature Method was developed by Charles Poliquin when he noticed trends and correlations working with athletes over the last thirty years.

The Charles Poliquin BioSignature Modulation Method

The BioSignature Method is designed to offer a new alternative to fat loss, offering faster fat loss and scientific spot reduction.

The Method relates to the relationship between body fat stores and hormonal profiles, and the methodology to improve site specific body composition. The BioSignature method brings together the best principles of naturopathy, functional medicine and exercise science to bring about a revolutionary new method of achieving fat loss and optimal health. 1

The BioSignature Method is based on scientific evidence working to help people lose fat in their own particular areas related to their own hormonal profile. Under this technique, diet, exercise, supplementation and lifestyle modifications are recommended to help the participant reduce stubborn fat stores. Each recommendation is made based on your own particular ‘biological signature,’ or hormone profile.

How Does The BioSignature Method Work?

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, Poliquin believes 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 where other testing methods only tell you your percent body fat.

Hormones BioSignature Looks At:

Hormone

Skin Fold

Occurrence

Cortisol

Umbilic

Excessive fat gain in belly region, disrupted sleep pattern

Insulin

Suprailliac, Subscrapular

Excessive fat gain in love handles and on the upper back

Estrogen

Quadraceps, Hamstrings

Excessive fat gain in hips and legs

Testosterone

Pectoral, Tricep

Androgen imbalance, accumulated fat in chest area for men

Growth Hormone

Knee, Calf

Reflects sleep patterns and overall fat loss

Thyroid

Mid-auxillary

Function of thyroid, accumulated fat 8 inches below armpit

 

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. 3

The BioSignature Method can help you develop a programme based on your unique biological signature. This means faster results and fewer supplements than is possible with the industry’s typically more random and haphazard approach. For example, the thickness of a person’s umbilical skin fold (your gut) is a direct reflection of cortisol (the stress hormone) output. A relatively fat midsection indicates stress levels are high and/or the ability to handle stress is low. The good news is that 1) it’s not your fault and, 2) it can be changed. The result is improved performance in all areas of your life – physical, mental, and intellectual. By following your personal plan, you will emerge leaner, stronger, healthier, happier, and more energetic. 1

The BioSignature Method For Fat Loss & Muscle Gain

This method claims that you can be helped physically, mentally and intellectually. Whilst you can become leaner on this program, it is hoped you will improve more holistically, becoming leaner, healthier, stronger and energised. This method tries to treat people as people instead of having a straightforward one-fits-all approach making it far more successful and much more likely to produce quicker outcomes across a broad selection of the population.
