Listening to the body’s signals
Electrodermal screening is a non-invasive procedure that measures energy imbalances and translates them to useful information about the body. EDS is often used to detect food sensitivities and the presence of vitamin or mineral deficiency. The testing procedure is painless, quick and accurate.
EDS provides detailed information and complex patterns of information about the patient’s body and energy. After the screening, this information is integrated into an overall treatment plan.
What is involved in Electrodermal Screening?
During EDS, a blunt, non-invasive electric probe is placed on the patient’s hands or feet at specific points. These points correspond to acupuncture points which are the beginning or end of energy meridians. Minute electrical discharges from the acupuncture points are measured and indicate the condition of the body’s organs and systems.
Screening for Food Sensitivity
Electrodermal screening allows up to 500 foods to be tested painlessly, measuring both histamine and non-histamine responses to substances which many tests are not able to do. Non-histamine responses are particularly important in food sensitivities, since many reactions are non-histamine related, such as bloating, fatigue and headaches.
