iTOVi - My Weekly Scan Plans My Wellness Routine

cait y. // the willow field



For anyone looking to really up their wellness game, I always recommend getting an iTOVi Scanner for their home. Everyone hears me talk about how great this little tool is, but here's why:

I'm a total planner.  (You should see my calendar!) Each week, I scan my self and my family (yes, sometimes even the puppies!). Using those reports helps guide our wellness plan for the week.  I mean, how amazing is it to get a list of things to focus on?!

Just this morning I scanned for a few oils and products to support my cycle and hormones.  How did it know I'm ending my cycle today?!  The scanner is magical, I tell you! (but in all seriousness, it does surprise me over and over with it's reports.)


How do you use the scanner, you ask?  

Well, it's a simple three step process:

  1. open the app on your phone
  2. turning on Bluetooth
  3. hold the scanner while it scans (be sure the metal prongs are touching your skin for an accurate reading)

Each scan takes anywhere from 1 minute to 3 minutes, and it all depends on the person. Don't worry if your scan takes longer!  We're all different and that means all of our scans are different.


Once your scan is complete, you can view your report.  Based on the feedback you can plan your weekly routines to address any areas in your life that need support. 

Since my reading was all about hormonal support, I'll be incorporating oils like Cypress, White Angelica and Clary Sage into my routines.

Here's what my week's wellness routine will look like:

  • AM / PM - diffusing Cypress, White Angelica and Neroli
  • Monday - Adding dark, leafy greens to meals, a drop of Cypress to my tea to help finish up my cycle
  • Tuesday/Wednesday - Using Clary Sage and White Angelica topically before meditating.  My meditation will be centered around my body's needs as a woman, and the cycle support it's craving.
  • Thursday/Friday - Getting out and moving!  To help support your cycle as a woman and any aches and pains that arise because of it, getting out and walking or doing some sort of light exercise is great.
  • Saturday - Reflect on the week
  • Sunday - Scan for the following week! 
how the scanner works

Because this gal (yes, me, the planner) likes structure, being conscious of my body's needs is extremely important to me.  I'm pretty aware of my body and having this tool to further support the self love and nutrition it needs is amazing.  

If you've been wanting to try this scanner, and are local to the Long Beach / Orange County / LA area, send me an email and we can schedule a scan and tea date!

Happy scanning, friends!


What is the iTOVi Scanner?

cait y. // the willow field

Have you been hearing the craze around the iTOVI Scanner?  Since we've recently added the iTOVi to our wellness routine we wanted to share more about it with you!   

How iTOVi Works


The iTOVi scanner sends a frequency (since all things have a unique energy frequency) to your body and your body reacts through the technology called bioimpedance (same technology as a Fitbit!).  First it sends a small electrical current through the skin (totally painless). The machine then measures a reaction through how well your skin resists or does not resist the electrical current.

The frequency is sent to the body and then the iTOVi body scanner  reads the body’s reactionand suggests which essential oils, vitamins and supplements your body needs!

The idea is that you can support the body through a product that Young Living carries with a product that will give you a similar response. This is a customized tool and can help you figure out your body’s nutritional needs to support your overall wellness.

Bioimpedance relies on the body’s autonomic nervous system in order to elicit reactions. -iTOVi

What are Biopoints?

 iTOVi accurately displays your body’s reactions to the iTOVi biopoints and Young Living (or your company’s) products. The biopoints are measured and ranked. The iTOVi scanner uses an algorithm to determine which biopoints are considered unresolved. If a client has 180 biopoints unresolved and another client has 65 unresolved biopoints, the difference is that one person had a more extreme reaction to the biomarkers than the other. It does not mean one is more unhealthy than the other. The amount of unresolved biopoints can change from scan to scan.

Can Anyone Use the iTOVi?

Absolutely!  The iTOVi scanner is totally safe for all ages. Even children, pregnant women, and folks with heart issues can safely use the iTOVi scanner.


How Often Can You Scan?

iTOVi recommends allowing your supplements time to work with your body. With some individuals it can take between 30-45 days to see a change in your iTOVi scan report. If you are scanning for essential oils they recommend allowing yourself 3-4 days in between scans.  They also note that each time you scan, iTOVi takes that reading into account so scanning too frequently may throw off the readings. 

How to Read a Scan Report

Once the scanning is complete (total process takes about 1-2 minutes) it will give you a scan report. It has a scoring circle which indicates your body’s overall unresolved biopoints. There are a total of 273 biopoints that are analyzed in this extensive body composition analysis. You will include your age,  height and weight for the most accurate of results. The report shows the score of unresolved biopoints and a suggested supporting product. When you tap on each product you can see a more detailed description.
