ElectroDermal Screening (EDS/EAV):
Conducting an Electronic Interview with the Body
By Chrysalis Yashpal Jayne, ND
Spring has arrived – time to cleanse, rejuvenate and experience new growth. In past articles, I have discussed methods of detoxification, fasting and rejuvenation. Those tools have incredible power to assist – or more accurately – to allow our bodies to detoxify and heal. They work in a general manner to accentuate the body’s power to heal itself. However, when there is interference, the healing power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae) has a tougher challenge.
Interference can come in many forms, from a myriad of toxins, both exogenous and endogenous as I delineated in past articles. Exogenous toxins come from outside the body while endogenous toxins are produced within the body. ElectroDermal Screening (EDS) is one technique to identify and locate toxins. Additionally, information can also be gathered regarding organ health, nutrient deficiencies, food sensitivities, allergens, etc.
Please excuse this technically rich paragraph; it is as simple as I can accurately describe this technology. In essence, with EDS, an electronic interview is undertaken with the body in the form of qualitative yes/no questions. These questions are answered by the body’s autonomic nervous system, through the acupuncture meridians, by changing electrical resistance at certain energy points in response to specific stimuli. This phenomenon occurs through resonant frequencies – similar to dialing your radio receiver to the resonant frequency (i.e. FM 98.5) and hearing the information carried. All substances emit frequencies, if resonance occurs; a change is reflected on the readings. In Richard Gerber’s book, Vibrational Medicine, there is an entire chapter or 2 about this type of diagnostic testing. It was originally developed in Germany from the 1950s – 1970s and has continued to evolve ever since. Dr. Reinhold Voll was the founder and its original name is ElectroAcupuncture according to Voll (EAV)
I have been utilizing EAV/EDS technology since 1988, apprenticing for 5 years with Douglas Leber, the developer of the “Computron”, the device I use in my practice. There are MANY things one can accomplish with this device, however it needs to be clearly understood that it is simply an extension and tool of the practitioner. I have chosen to focus my attention on toxicity and nutrition with this device. I will outline a few of the things that I routinely test, check, clients for.
I begin by checking over 50 points to determine any functional organ imbalances, how the organ systems interact with each other and determine the “causal chain” – which organs are affecting other organs, so we can direct treatment at the most stressed organs and underlying cause. The biological score is an energetic measurement of the body’s toxicity status and its ability to handle that level of toxicity. I measure this value on every EAV/EDS visit and intend to before and after any detoxification program. It is a good monitoring value for a person’s overall progress. I also determine their “ideal biological score”, providing insight for the development of a 3 month treatment plan. It also provides me information as to how ready one is to begin a cleanse and/or a fast - it gives me clues to how well they will do. Next I measure the client’s “energy reserves” available for healing. This expresses the efficiency of energy production and availability at the cellular level, within the cell’s powerhouse – the mitochondria. I then take a brief look at any geopathic and emotional stresses from an energetic perspective.
The evaluation of toxic burdens is the bulk of the remaining testing. I conduct a vibrational, resonant frequency-oriented, systematic approach to identify toxins that are exhibiting an influence on the organism. These exposures could have been at any point in one’s life, possibly even only one exposure. The important factor though is that the body is still “reacting” to the exposure in some, even minute, way and was initially unsuccessful is getting it completely out of the body. In EAV/EDS language, a “toxic focus” may occur that becomes the “closet” the body stores toxins in, in time developing into an abscess, cyst, polyp, tumor, etc. However, more subtle disturbances commonly deplete a person and promote susceptibility to dis-ease, such as fatigue, decreased immunity, aches, digestion issues, etc. that with standard medical technology would simply appear “normal”. The toxins I test for include bacteria, viruses, fungi/molds, parasites, heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, solvents, and more. Orthodox lab testing can then be performed with more directed purpose if desired. It is important to acknowledge that energetic testing has potential to discover things before, during or after they would show up in standard testing procedures using blood, urine or saliva. I do recommend both baseline and selective lab testing. Food sensitivities and other allergens are also very important and a common source of underlying stress. With identification, they can then be avoided, as well as desensitized from, with hope of being reintroduced in the diet. After these toxins have been identified, I have remedies and supplements that can assist in the removal of these underlying causes.
EAV/EDS technology is also very effective in performing quick trials of the potential a particular supplement has to be helpful. I also may compare multiple options of similar supplements and determine which could be the most effective for this individual.
Now that I have given you a brief, though complete overview of ElectroDermal screening and its potential. I want to remind you of our beginning in this article – spring cleansing. Now you are aware of both general and specific ways to detoxify from the daily exposures of modern life and our lifestyles that are less than pure. Spring and Fall are the seasons to cleanse and renew. I encourage you to take that step of learning more forms of “routine maintenance” and perhaps join us on some supervised cleansing and fasting programs this year. You will learn what you are capable of and begin to know how to truly take care of your Self.
