... is where's the kitchen sink? But actually it all makes sense once you read about it. We have lousy diets in this country. We don't eat as many vegetables as our grandparents did. Dinner with them wasn't "Are we having potatoes for dinner?" It was "How are you fixing the potatoes tonight?" Meat portions were small. Lots of gravy to stretch the meat. Mashed potatoes (not instant) and gravy was a staple food. And they always ate lots of other vegetables. "Soda pop" was a rare treat. It came in 8-oz bottles. It would never have occurred to us to ask for a second bottle of it. They usually drank "gunpowder" tea which is alkaline to the body.

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. Further, that any recommended dietary changes or dietary supplements based partly on the results of electrodermal testing should all be discussed with your family physician 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. I make no claims that the screenings find anything other than energy imbalances or that the energized water or other products actually do anything other than help balance energy.
You and God are the only ones who can heal you.
