Zyto Compass Bio-Survey: Scam or Effective Tool?

I belong to a Young Living Essential Oils discussion group on Linked-In, and a question came up awhile back about the Zyto Compass.  One woman posted this comment, "I think it's a complete waste of money and makes people dependent on it. Personally, I have had many Zyto readings done and they have been completely different every time - even when taking them 10 minutes apart. I think it's a nice idea, but in the end is a scam. (And it is very costly.).... Depending on a machine doesn't fit into my understanding of holistic health and well being. Muscle testing and intuition, trusting my own body and energy, are far more effective and empowering than relying on a machine."  

Since I believe there are others with the same feelings about the Zyto, I want to share the reply that I posted on the Linked-In discussion group (slightly edited).

I totally agree with you L______ on the fact that muscle testing and intuition, and trusting in your own body and energy are a step up from the Compass, which is relying on a machine. There is no doubt that being self-reliant is more valuable, and I encourage my clients to learn these skills.

However, I have found it to be a useful and effective tool in the case where time is an issue (it's a lot faster than muscle testing a whole bunch of products), or my own energy is an issue (I'm not in the clear from being stressed or tired), and also, when the person I'm working with is not familiar with muscle testing and the Zyto Compass technology is easier for them to accept and understand.

The reason your readings have been different every time, even ten minutes apart, is because the Zyto is VERY precise, and even the reading of your energy one time changes your energy. This is a basic Quantum Physics principle that the observation and measuring of energy changes it.  Thus, it is best to use the first scan you have.  I wait at least three days before I repeat a scan.

I have found the Compass to be the most valuable when someone takes what comes up on the Compass Report right after they run the report. That means that you need to have many of Young Living's products on hand. I probably have about 75% of Young Living's products on hand, so when I run on the Compass, I usually have most of what comes up. If I don't have it, I take something with similar properties. I use the products that come up, and I feel the support my body is receivng. I've done that for the last four and a half years, dozens and dozens of times, and my family members (a husband and six children) and many clients, have done the same thing with the same results.

I also use it when I do the Raindrop, Foot Zone, Vita-flex, Emotion Code, or other modalities that I use. I run my clients on the Compass before we start the session, to see where they are at, and then I add those oils or supplements in to whatever we're doing that day. In the Raindrop there is a specific point, after the Marjoram in the CARE model, where you can add in other oils. And I have loved using it with the Foot Zone, because I'll come across a tender point on the feet, and an oil that came up for them on the Compass will fit right in with working that specific point. It's awesome!

I have not had as much success with running clients on the Compass, having them order the products, and then having them take them a week or more later, although I have had some. But I still encourage my downline do it, because it does point in the general direction of what oils they should be accumulating through their Essential Rewards order, and then when they ARE needing support, and I run them on the Compass, and they have it on hand, they are so excited! This has worked really well.

So L______, even though I agree with you on the need for being able to muscle test and relying on your own intuition, it has not been my experience that the Zyto Compass is a scam. For me, it has been a very useful tool (and it is just that - a tool), and I would pay the $40 subscription fee on a monthly basis, even if I only used it with my own family! Thankfully, it is a blessing to many of my friends and clients as well." 

That was my reply to the LinkedIn comment.

  3. Lorena, I loved everything you said in your comment and agree completely. The Zyto Compass is a great tool and has come up with exactly what my family needs every time. And I love that it is a quick assessment, especially if you are overwhelmed or stressed about what to use and this gives you a breakdown of everything and then you can go through each oil and product and pick the ones that you feel are the right ones for whomever you are testing. I would love to have my own Zyto Compass....who doesn't want every available tool out there for when you are trying to take care of those you love!!!!! It makes sense to me and has been miraculous for my family. So thank you, Lorena you have an amazing talent! Thank you for sharing your gift with my family!

  5. A vain Emperor who cares about nothing except wearing and displaying clothes hires two swindlers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "hopelessly stupid". The Emperor's ministers cannot see the clothing themselves, but pretend that they can for fear of appearing unfit for their positions and the Emperor does the same. Finally the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his subjects. The townsfolk play along with the pretense not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but continues the procession. My wife and I just passed up the Zyto scam test for $25.00 wake up . Do not be deceived God is not mocked , what ever you sow you will reap, enough of the B.S.

    1. Baruch - thank you for sharing your thoughts. Communication is an important step toward understanding. I only wish we could speak face to face and understand one another better.

    2. I agree. People are negative on something they have never even tried. I had my 18 yr old son take a compass report. He was generally a very robust healthy young man but had a mild persistent cough that would not go away. The compass report came up with lots of oils needed for immunity support and strengthening (which we figured) and also some for tumors (which we thought was a non issue). A few weeks later we took him in and they diagnosed him with Lymphoma that took his life a year and a half later! How I wish I had done the compass scan so many years earlier! _ Rebecca in Colorado

  6. Seaside381 - Thank you for leaving your comment and identifying yourself instead of leaving it as "Anonymous". I appreciate that. Gullible is a term that describes someone who easily believe something that is not true, and I believe that is how you mean it as stated in your comment. One of the ways to find out if something is "true" or not, is to experiment with it and see for yourself. I have done that with the Zyto Compass, for over four years now, and have found it to be wonderfully accurate and helpful. So, I hope we can agree to disagree. I'm just sorry you're missing out.

  7. Lorena how come only those who had criticism for the Zyto scan got reply. it makes your post with a head line posed as a question seem more like a flame war tinder box. As a person who not 10 minutes ago had his first Zyto scan I love it and if I could afford it would buy one. I am into natural medicine but am new to essential oils. All the oil recommendations that came up fit to a t my issues and the things I have seen in my family. I am a 35m skilled technician father of 4 with spouse and I do not think the Zyto scan is a scam. May be inaccurate if u use it often but great base line tool

    1. Sorry - I haven't intentionally replied only to the naysayers, they are just the only ones to which I felt I needed to add something. It's great news that you are open to using this great tool. Thank you so much for your feedback!

  8. Hi Lorena. I took the Zyto scan a couple of days ago and came up with a very high score for Frankenscence (16 out of 28). Have you ever seen a high score for this particular oil before? Should I be worried - Frank is for some really awful heavy duty stuff. Thanks for any reassurance you can give.

  9. I'm a skeptic for one reason only. What does it mean when the scan shows nothing? You can't tell me that everyone doesn't require something. This has not only happened to my husband, but also a friend of ours. They both suffer with a disease that doesn't allow the body to absorb nutrition. Both of them being unhealthy and the zyto showed that they didn't need anything, makes me wonder why.

    1. What company was the Zyto Compass using for the database when the survey was done for your husband and the friend? I have some thoughts on your question, but I would like to know first what company's products were being used for the scan?

  10. OK, it was Young Living. The reason I wanted to know is because I wondered if the company you were testing for had the depth and breadth of products, and the quality of products, that would be useful to your husband and friend. Young Living definitely has that, so that crosses out the first possible reason they came up with nothing. In my nearly five years of using the Compass, and over a thousand reports (or more - I've lost track), I've only seen zero come up for a person three times (three different people). So to have this happen for your husband and his friend is rare. On all three cases where the Bio-markers out of range were zero, the people were in good health. In my experience, this is what I understand about the number of Bio-Markers out of range: Most people have in the 30-40 Bio-markers out of range. If it's higher than that, it means that they have a lot of balance, but they also have a lot of energy to work on things, and their body can handle the cleansing needed. If someone has lower than 30-40 out of range, there are two possibilities. 1) They truly are in good health and have very little out of balance, or 2) They are in very poor health, and they have a low number out of range because their body only has enough energy to work on a few things at a time.

    So, in the case of your husband, and that of your friend, my guess is that the second possibility was the likely explanation. Young Living's products are powerful, and it may just be that they came up with zero out of range because their bodies did not respond to any of the frequencies of the products because of the level of cleansing that would take place, which would have been too much for their bodies. In that case, you would ask, so what do we do know? Since I don't know the details of the disease you are talking about beyond your brief description in your comment, it's tough to make any suggestions. I would recommend, however, that you find an energy worker who is willing to see if there is any trapped emotion or belief systems in place, either through their own experiences, or that inherited through the DNA, that is contributing to this inability to absorb nutrients. This can be released through any number of modalities, including Emotion Code, Body Code, or AMSTAR. Then you could start looking at food being your medicine, or in other words healing through the slow, gentle means of basic nutrients coming from food. I truly hope you find the help needed. Contact me personally if I can be of more assistance or answer more questions.

  13. I worked for 10 years at a health food store so I am very familiar with supplements and alternative modalities. I used the Compass scan (scam?) twice. The first time I had two biomarkers out of range and it suggested a couple of Nature's Sunshine supplements I decided to get since it sort of made sense (what it was suggesting). Now 2 months later I had another scan and it says 51 !!!! biomarkers out of range and it suggests like 10 different supplements I should take..... !! Isn't this a bit strange? My life and the way I feel have not changed so much in the last two months....Does this machine actually pick up something realistic? Now I'm paranoid, did I develop some major disease in two months?

    1. Lorena,

      Can you please answer this? I too, am wanting to know what you have to say on this. Thanks!

    2. Thank you for your questions and observations. Although I have no license to judge or assess whether you have developed a major disease in the last two months, nor does the Compass give this type of information, I think I can address the question of why your biomarkers were so different, going from 2 to 51 in two months. This is not an infrequent occurrence, by the way, and I have seen it happen not only on myself but on clients as well. The answer is that the Zyto Compass software is measuring your energy field, which is the most rapidly changing field in your body. You and I are used to tests measuring our tissues, which show what has happened in the past and changes slowly over time, or we are used to tests measuring bodily fluids, such as blood or urine, and these fluids show what is happening currently in our body, and changes more quickly than tissue, but nowhere nearly as quickly as our energy changes. Our energy is not a reflection of the past, or even the present, per se, but it actually is more of a description of where we are headed. And also, it can change very quickly from moment to moment. So when the Zyto Compass takes a bio-survey, the results should be looked at in terms of where you are headed. As I mentioned in my post, I have found that the Compass works best on me (and many others) when I take the products that come up right in that moment, and for the next few days that follow. Back to the question about whether you have developed a major disease in the last two months, I again reiterate that the Compass does not answer that type of question. The question that the Compass answers is this, "At this time, as I am taking the Zyto Compass bio-survey, what oils or supplements from Young Living (or whatever the database the software is using) does my body prefer?" The Compass does not give information about WHY you need particular supplements, or for what body systems or organs you need them. In addition, the Compass does not give any information is to the severity of the problem that the product coming up for you is supposed to address, or how badly your body needs it. It could be a gentle balancing or correction, or it could be a major problem that needs to be addressed. Those questions need to be decided by you. But at least the Compass gives you more information, and gives you a starting point to help you in knowing what natural supplements you want to take. I hope this answers some of your questions, and I welcome any additional comments or observations you would like to make.

  14. I'm just shocked that adults actually fall for this type of thing. Throw some big words out to explain why results can't be reproduced (in the same person a few minutes later) and hook a cool-looking device up to a computer and I guess some people will fall for anything. At least when we used our Magic 8-Ball as kids we knew it was just for fun...

    1. Hi Anne,
      Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I really appreciate it! Even though we disagree, I am grateful for your feedback. I am grateful every day that we have this Zyto Compass software, as it gives me a lot of great results, but I'm OK with others not being comfortable with it and not wanting to believe it or use it. I hope you are finding answers with whatever avenue you choose to use, and that you are healthy and well. Thanks again!

  15. Lorena, I appreciate your allowing dissenting comments on your web site. I am healthy, thank you, and believe there is great benefit in alternatives to Western medicine as part of a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, this sort of gadget discredits alternative therapies and does more harm than good in my opinion.

    After attending a DoTerra open house last week at a friend/distributor's house and seeing the scanner in use I was... disappointed. Prior to that, I had a generally positive opinion about the company and have purchased DoTerra oils through this friend even though I think they're a bit over priced. That a company needs to resort to such gimmicks is a red flag to me though, and I'm not sure I'll continue to give them my business now that I know they encourage their distributors to use this tool. The quality of the oils may be as great as they claim, but to me integrity and honesty are just as important.

    Glad you're enjoying the device and it's working for you. I can see where it would be a great marketing tool for attracting a certain type of customer, but it's likely to be a huge turn off to anyone with a working B.S. detector.

    1. Hi, I am a doTERRA advocate and don't use this tool. I don't believe in it. I use personal experience and experiences of friends and family to share the benefits of oils. I don't need a gimic and doTERRA does not push people to use a machine. I'm sorry you had a bad experience, please let me know if you have any questions about doTERRA I can answer honestly.

    2. Hi, I would not let someone's decision to offer a Zyto scan reflect negatively on an essential oil company. The company itself does not advocate for the use of the scanner. I have been a Young Living leader for several years and do not own a Zyto. I do know others that own them and have had a scan done just once. I have always been kind of torn in skepticism as to whether or not it is a legitimate thing. It's my belief that a company with such superior products like Young Living, well, the products speak for themselves. It's all about sharing the products with others. I apply and use oils and they uplift me and make me feel fantastic when I'm feeling tired, sad, or queasy. So, if I can share that with someone and introduce them to something they might never have heard of, that's terrific. And it helps to encourage them to research and take their wellness into their own hands. I have searched around the internet and have seen several chiropractors and herbalists using the Zyto, but I'm still not sure.
