Q: What is Electrodermal Screening?
A: Electordermal Screening (EDS) is a tool which allows Dr. Jennifer Kaster, ND, Oakville, to evaluate the body from a different perspective. It is not an instrument used to diagnose disease. It does, however, measure the electrical current moving through the acupuncture meridians and as such gives information about the internal systems from a different viewpoint called bioenergetics. Electrodermal screening uses an electronic device to measure the electrical resistance at numerous acupuncture points on the body.
