Allergic Reaction

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is it important to know my sensitivities and allergies?

The gut converts all that we consume into nutrients for each cell of the body and optimizes the usage of immune chemicals such as serotonin which affects mood, sleep, appetite, and metabolism. Food sensitivities, toxins, and stress can significantly damage the gastrointestinal tract and prevent your body from receiving everything it needs. Hence, many health challenges or conditions like pain, sleep disorders, migraines, lack of energy, and various illnesses can be caused by an unhealthy gut.

Who is this test recommended for?

This test is recommended for anyone of any age who is suffering from:

  • constipation, diarrhea, gas, or bloating

  • weight gain/trouble losing weight

  • difficulty concentrating, fatigue, hyperactivity, or insomnia

  • feelings of depression

  • muscle and joint pains

  • skin rash, hives, or acne

  • headaches, sinus problems, migraines, or dizziness

  • asthma, recurrent bronchitis, or ear infections

  • other symptoms that seem to come and go

 

If you have any of these symptoms you may be experiencing sensitivity or allergy. Those with a pacemaker are not able to take this test due to the electromagnetic frequencies.

How does it work?

Electro-Dermal Screening is a non-invasive, computerized procedure that measures electron flow where they come to the skin’s surface. The equipment consists of a modern computer program, a sensitive Ohm meter, and a signal generator. There are two cables coming out of the signal generator; one is positive, and the other one is negative. The positive lead is attached to a stylus with an electrode tip. The technician holds the stylus by the insulated handle and presses the tip against one of the patient’s acupuncture points. The patient holds a hand electrode in their free hand.

 

During the measurement, the patient and the EDS form a closed circuit, allowing energy and information to flow from the EDS to the probe, through the patient to the hand electrode, and back to the EDS unit. The equipment then generates a report showing the level of sensitivities to many foods and provides us with very crucial data about the health of your gut and essentially your overall health.

Are the results accurate?

Electro-dermal Screening has been estimated to be 92% accurate. Some testing results may be inaccurate due to multiple layered sensitivities.

What's the difference between an allergy and a sensitivity?

An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system “overreacts” to a common substance like it was an invading organism.
Skin rash, runny nose, watery eyes, gas, bloating, vomiting, and even anaphylactic shock are symptoms of allergy.

 

Sensitivities are harder to detect because they are not an overreaction of the immune system. Fatigue, headaches, migraines, mood swings, attention difficulties, muscle and joint aches, sleep disturbances, bed-wetting, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), sinusitis, and weight gain are symptoms of sensitivity.

How much does it cost?

See our Fees page for details.  Electro-dermal Screening is a fraction of the cost for blood testing or hair analysis.

How do I prepare for my test?

To prepare for your test, be sure to not take any antihistamines prior to the test, and be well hydrated.

Electrodermal Screening

What is it?​

We use Electro-dermal screening (EDS) to assess your nutritional and environmental allergies and sensitivities. Similar to the way a lie detector is used, EDS utilizes electromagnetic frequencies to test for resistance patterns in the body. This test does not use needles and is safe for all ages and all conditions, except for those with a pacemaker. 

 

Electro-dermal screening has been approved for clinical evaluation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as an Investigational Device and is widely used throughout Canada, Europe and the United States.
