Bio Energetic Stress Testing or Electro Dermal Screening (EDS) is used clinically to measure your body’s energetic imbalances and to determine appropriate means for restoring equilibrium. The first step in this process is to record electrical measurements taken at specific points on the skin, usually on the hands and feet. These points for the most part correlate with classical acupuncture points and are more electrically conductive than surrounding tissue.
These points also correlate with your body’s organs and organ systems. As you move into or away from health, your body’s condition is reflected in the energetic characteristics of the points. The points are connected into groups called meridians or channels. Twelve of these meridians, the major ones, either begin or end on the hands or feet. For this reason, all of the corresponding organs may be “tested” by measuring these hand and foot points. This makes the testing procedure a convenient and completely non-invasive method for gaining valuable information about your body’s vital functions.
After initial measurements have been taken and recorded, your naturopathic doctor or trained technician will correlate the test results with a large database of information which serves as a guide and will help provide possible solutions, which may include homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements or other modalities that will help to bring you back into balance. The objective is to assist your body in achieving a state of homeostasis where no system or meridian contains excess or deficient energy.
Bio Energetic Stress Testing or Electro Dermal Screening (EDS) is not a medical procedure. It is simply a measurement of your body’s energy which helps you balance yourself through natural means. If you suspect a medical problem you should consult with our naturopathic doctor or your physician who can diagnosis and treat accordingly.
