"...electrodermal methods in the hands of an experienced professional gives a far superior total profile of food tolerance and intolerance than blood tests." 

The Canary and Chronic Fatigue by Majid Ali, M.D. - page 367

"The quality of health care will also improve with integration of the EDST into modern medical practice. Because the EDST makes use of the body's meridian system, it can map out and help analyze the body's own signals, making it particularly useful in early diagnosis. With its solid theoretical foundation in modern physics and quantum mechanics, it is perhaps the most "modern" medical methodologies available today."

"Its noninvasive biofeedback "dialogue with the body" has been described as so important that Burton Goldberg, founder of, said that in the future any office that does not offer this could be guilty of malpractice."

"My experience that we generally addicted to the very foods that we are sensitive to and that are, in fact, causing far more damage than we appreciate. Electrodermal testing has been instrumental in me helping my patients to recognize which foods are clearly harmful for them."

"Electrodermal screening enabled me to look back through my health history to see how my immune system had been damaged," Dr.  Lange says. It also showed her the way to restore her health.

Electro Dermal screening is used to conduct a comprehensive body stress assessment and to determine appropriate ways to achieve healthy energetic balance. The first step in this process is to measure electrical conductivity at responsive points on the skin, typically on the hands and feet. (The locations of the test points are generally the same as those of acupuncture points.) These measurements are recorded to help provide a profile of a patient's present condition.

According to European medical research, acupuncture points are related to your body's organs and organ systems. As a patient moves toward or away from health, the condition of any particular organ or system can be sensed at representative points.

Major groups of points are connected through channels, or meridians. Twenty of these meridians begin or end on the hands and feet. As a result, stress associated with the corresponding organs may be surveyed using the indicated points.

Meridian Stress Assessment may be used to screen:

  • All the systems, organs and functions of the body
  • For allergies and sensitivities to foods, plants, animals, environments, inhalants and most anything we meet in our daily life.
  • Imbalances in nutritional products such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, EFAs, proteins, hormones and so on.
  • The quality of teeth, dental conditions, dental materials and compatible products.
  • Sensitivity or a weakness to heavy metals, toxic products and pollutants, such as herbicides, pesticides and insecticides
  • For parasites, fungus, yeast, candida, bacteria, viruses, vaccines, and miasms.

The information contained herein is intended for educational purposes only.

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.

Laws regarding this equipment vary from country to country.
