By now I hope I have convinced you that CEDS is the science of our future and it is available to you right now!
But how does the cost of being screened compare with the standard medical tests?
I found very few websites that even listed the cost of being tested for allergies. You aren't supposed to care if you health insurance covers most of the cost. But I did find a site (2006):
Intradermal Allergy Test
95078 Provocative Testing
Metals - blood (11 tests, 1 calculation)
Vitamin profile (12 vitamins)
Vitamin profile (20 vitamins)
York Lab. - food testing 113 tests
Plus Doctor's time - 7/15/2006
| $8.00 per
$8.00 per item
So you could easily spend $942.00 to be thoroughly tested. And assuming you pay 20% = $188.40
Let's compare that with the cost of being screened by CEDS:
This measures the body's acupuncture points and meridian systems. It is a blend of technology and traditional Chinese medical theory. The system is used to assess the function of the organ systems such as the intestines, lymph, kidney, liver, etc. It may be used to determine the overall state of regulation and may also be used to identify foci of infection, dental problems, heavy metals, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, and food and environmental allergies. EDS may also be utilized in making individualized remedy selections.
Fee: $50 For 30 minutes or $25 with consultation - 7/15/2006
So if you were screened for an hour with CEDS, the cost if you went to the above clinic would be $100.00.
All of the tests by the physician involve being stuck with needles. The skin prick test also puts a minute amount of the item under your skin. If you are highly allergic, that could cause a problem. For the other tests, the physician draws blood. CEDS is non-invasive. No needles.
So now you can see that CEDS is very cost effective. And once you have been screened with CEDS, you can get the specific medical tests that you need from your physician!

BE AWARE: The electrodermal testing devices have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for assessment of nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, the presence of toxins, Candida, Epstein Barr virus, or the weakness of organs and glands. Use of the device for these purposes is inconsistent with FDA approval. The galvanic skin response device is a Class II device that may be used for lie detection and for biofeedback.
There are no generally accepted completed clinical studies which demonstrate that the electrodermal testing devices are effective when used to assess for nutritional deficiencies, the presence of toxins, food allergies, Candida, Epstein Barr virus, and the strength or weakness of organs and glands.
Your child's exposure to lead or heavy metals cannot be determined solely through electrodermal testing.
You should not make decisions about your or your child's health and nutritional needs from information obtained solely through electrodermal testing.
You are to discuss all CEDS recommendations with your health care provider before implementing any of them.
There are medical tests for many, if not all of the issues that respondents use electrodermal testing to assess, and you are strongly encouraged to confirm the exposures identified through standard medical testing if you or your family physician feel that it is necessary.
