Electrodermal Sensitivity Testing to body is an electrical system with all 50 trillion plus cells governed largely by electrical differences occurring between individual cells and our external environment.
Modern Biophysics has shown that cells resonate at certain frequencies and have radio-like transmitting and receiving properties that allow cells to inter-communicate and control biological and chemical systems in the body.
As healthy harmonic cells resonate at a very different frequency to that of unhealthy cells, the doctors at ACBM use a specialized non-invasive form of electrical resonance testing known as BioResonance or electrodermal testing in order to identify possible cellular imbalances or stressors that may be affecting the body’s electrical system.
These stressors may include:
Addictions: to food, alcohol, chemicals, nicotine, emotion
Allergies/sensitivities: to healthy food, fats, sugars, alcohol, chemicals, heavy metals (mercury etc), environmental inhaled substances (pollens, grass, petrol etc.)
Asthma, Hay Fever, skin problems
Hormonal imbalances: Resulting in possible weight problems, menstrual and menopausal issues
Psycho-immunology: Illness and stressed conditions where the primary cause lies in some past emotional, mental or physical trauma that the person has never fully recovered from
HOW DOES ELECTRODERMAL TESTING WORK?
Electrodermal testing has been used successfully in Europe since 1953, originating with the German Electro-Acupuncture technique as developed by Dr. Reinhold Voll.
The procedure involves measuring potential differences (voltage) between a tip electrode held against an acupuncture point and a large surface electrode (hand electrode) held by the patient. The resultant resistance is then measured.
The EAV test technique is founded on the theory of acupuncture. EAV has shown that acupuncture points bear a direct relationship to a specific anatomical structure or physiological function of the body. Some of the doctors at ACBM will use the classical EAV testing with new computer technology, while others use a variation of the technique known as Vegetative Reflex testing.
In 1978, Dr. Helmut Schimmel originated the Vegetative Reflex Test (V.R.T.) or VEGATEST- Method; which is the culmination of 35 years of German electro-acupuncture development. Vegetative Reflex Test is a so-called Bio-Energetic Regulatory technique (BER). BER records the bio-electric potential of a person and is capable of revealing functional or so-called energetic disorders. With the VEGATEST- Method, only a few points (vs. hundreds with EAV) are used. The system is based on measuring against special test ampoules rather than organ-linked acupuncture points themselves. With each skin measurement point, the response of the person to the test ampoules results in a “yes or no” reading.
If you have specific substances you would like tested (I.E. foods, your pet’s hair, laundry detergent, etc.) please bring them to your initial appointment in a plastic bag.
