The EDS (electrodermal screening) computer converts your skin resistance response to a number. By measuring the skin's electrical resistance, EDS is said to detect energy imbalances along meridians (invisible lines of energy flow in traditional Chinese medicine). It may help to detect and treat illnesses such as allergies, organ weakness, food intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, and more.
During the screening, a person typically holds a probe in one hand, while a second probe touches another part of the body. A tiny electrical current (which cannot be detected by the person being tested) is sent through the circuit and a reading is made on a galvanometer between 0 and 100.
Readings can be taken at different places on the skin, corresponding with acupuncture points, to determine if there is an imbalance in a person's energy which may signal illness. In addition, a potential allergenic substance may be placed in a holder on the circuit -- a higher reading on the galvanometer suggests a greater sensitivity to the substance, according to proponents.
