"Hypochlorhydria is the lack of adequate stomach
acid (hydrochloric acid) production. Some people actually have a
condition known as achlorhydria, in which a person produces no stomach acid.
The presence of hypochlorhydria is an extremely important finding as stomach acid is responsible for two key functions. The sterilization of food against potentially harmful micro-organisms reduces our risk of being colonized by every micro-organisms we ingest daily.
Stomach acid plays an important role in the digestion of protein molecules and the absorption of minerals and vitamins. Stomach acid also signals the release of digestive enzymes and bicarbonate from the pancreas required for digestion. Insufficient stomach acid also causes absorption of partially digested food molecules, leading to food sensitivities.
Food components that should be digested and absorbed in the upper intestines, when not processed properly, pass through into the lower intestines providing fuel for harmful micro-organisms, therefore increasing the numbers. Low stomach acid causes gastrointestinal overgrowth of pathogens, malabsorption of minerals, vitamins and amino acids, and food sensitivities.
Low stomach acid levels can be genetic or acquired. A number of different medical conditions, listed below, are associated with much higher rates of hypochlorhydria." - Nutritional Healing

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.
