32. Immune System No Yes
33. Inflammatory Issues No Yes
34. Lyme Disturbance, Lyme II, Lyme III - It is not just tick-borne; it can also be transmitted by other insects, including fleas, spiders, mosquitoes and mites -- and by human-to-human contact (in utero, through breast milk, blood transfusions). Bacteria can be found in saliva and semen. No Yes
35. Male Conditions No Yes
36. Mental or Emotional Stress No Yes
37. Meridian Disturbance - Energy flow in one or more meridian channels can be blocked or even reversed. A pattern of meridian energy disturbance commonly underlies emotional distress, whether anxiety or anger, panic or pain. Correcting the meridian disturbance will often eliminate or dramatically reduce the emotional distress. No Yes
38. Mesenchyme Filter No Yes
39. Metabolic Disruption/Disturbances No Yes
40. Miasms - in homeopathy, a block to healing caused by a predisposition to a particular disease in somebody or in his or her family (not genetic, however) No Yes

42. Mycoplasma/Mollicutes Signatures No Yes
43. Mycotoxin Signatures - toxins produced by fungus No Yes
44. Neurological Imbalance No Yes
45. Non-Vertebral Misalignments - fingers, toes... not the spine No Yes
46. Oxidative Stress - Your body constantly reacts with oxygen as you breathe and your cells produce energy. As a consequence of this activity, highly reactive molecules are produced known as free radicals. Free radicals interact with other molecules within cells. This can cause oxidative damage to proteins, membranes and genes. Oxidative damage has been implicated in the cause of many diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's and has an impact on the body's aging process. No Yes
47. Parasite Signatures No Yes
48. Parasympathetic Disturbance  - Parasympathetic: A part of nervous system that serves to slow the heart rate, increase the intestinal and gland activity, and relax the sphincter muscles No Yes
49. Pediatric Conditions No Yes
50. pH Imbalance - The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. The entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment. When we ingest too many acidic or acid-producing foods, excess acid corrodes tissues and organs and leads to illness. Furthermore, acid also provides a favorable environment for harmful bacteria and other micro organism that can damage glands and organs. In other words, over-acidification will interrupt cellular activities and functions. It is the root of all sickness and disease. And it is also what causes overweight: to protect itself from potentially serious damage, the body creates new fat cells to store the extra acid. No Yes
51. Phenolic Sensitivities -  (Phenols are chemicals found in foods. The "phenol" category contains quite a few subgroups, both food and non-food.) No Yes
52. Polarity Disturbance - Life force energy, which is in constant pulsation from positive to negative poles in the body, creates fields and energetic lines of force. Disease is a process which occurs when the life energy is blocked or out of balance. 
Chronic Battery Reversal: People whose body energy is chronically reversed or "switched" are resistant to positive change and healing. They tend to self-sabotage repeatedly in important life areas despite their stated good intentions.
No Yes
53. Prion Signatures - (A disease-causing agent that is neither bacterial nor fungal nor viral and contains no genetic material.) No Yes
54. Protozoa Signatures No Yes
55. Respiratory Distress No Yes
56. Sarcode Weakness- Sarcodes are homeopathic medicines prepared from healthy animal tissues and secretions. These are like blueprints to correct the energy to that of healthy cells. No Yes
57. Skin Afflictions No Yes
58. Sleep Disturbances No Yes
59. Supplement Deficiencies No Yes
59. Sympathetic Disturbance No Yes
60. Thyroid Disturbance No Yes
61. TMJ Stress No Yes

63. Urinary Disorders No Yes
64. Vaccination Disturbance No Yes
65. Vertebral Misalignment - Spinal misalignment No Yes
66. Virus Signatures No Yes
67. Vitamin Deficiencies No Yes

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.
