Discovery System

To learn more about our advanced ElectroDermal Screening (EDS) device known as the Discovery System please read the main highlighted points below.


ElectroDermal Screening (EDS) is a technique that measures the resistance to the flow of electrons through the body. The purpose is to detect energy imbalances along invisible lines of the body described by acupuncturists as meridians.

Since illness, inflammation, and other factors cause the body's resistance to change, ElectroDermal Screening can be used to detect these changes in resistance.

ElectroDermal Screening has its earliest roots in what was called galvanic skin testing. The galvanic skin response, a method of measuring the electrical resistance of the skin, was discovered in the early 1900s. Galvanic skin testing detects sweat on the skin, and more sweat produces better electrical conduction.

In the 1950s, a West German physician and acupuncturist named Reinhold Voll combined acupuncture theory with galvanic skin response technology. He tested the skin along various points with particular attention to the acupuncture meridians. This is how galvanic skin response testing became known as electrodermal screening.

Changes in galvanic skin response are still sometimes used in mental health research studies or to detect hot flashes in menopausal women. For most purposes, this method has been replaced with more advanced types of testing. Galvanic skin response changes are still used in lie detector tests, along with several other measures such as pulse, breathing, and blood pressure.

Now that you know what ElectroDermal Screening (EDS) is and how useful it can be, where does the Discovery System fit in?

The Consolidated Wellness Solutions, LLC Discovery System consists of a computerized ElectroDermal Screening device and an easy-to-use software interface. The device allows technicians to measure the resistance of acupoints non-invasively while the software presents the results in an attractive and meaningful manner.

Consolidated Wellness Solutions, LLC offers the Discovery System along with a full line of nutritional supplements making it possible to provide your clients with the most complete products and services available.

The Discovery System measures electrical currents in the body much like an EKG machine measures the electrical activity of the heart. The data the Discovery System acquires can be used to determine the areas of electrical imbalance in the body. This allows the technician to conduct a dynamic assessment on the meridians of the body's organs, systems, and tissues, showing much about their basic functional status.

The technology allows for the testing of the frequency of pathogens such as parasites, viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungus and environmental pollutants, as well as determining food and environmental sensitivities, Bach flowers and other specific emotional stress.

The Discovery System can be used to show how much stress an organ's meridian is under and can aid the technician in determining what can be helpful in eliminating the imbalance. Another benefit of the Discovery System is that it can be used to monitor the progress of therapy-this helps avoid much trial and error.

In today's world there are many harmful substances and stresses that the body is exposed to, such as heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, etc.), pesticides, drugs, chemical toxins, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and allergies. All of these alter the normal body processes. The Discovery System can help pinpoint the source of such imbalances and aid the doctor in re-balancing the body.

If the patient is being tested for a type of treatment, samples of various remedies may be tried as the probe is touched to the problem area. Remedies may include homeopathic liquids and dietary or vitamin supplements. Different substances are tested until one is found that "balances" the energy disturbance.

To begin a Discovery System test session, a brass electrode is grasped in the hand of the person being tested. This brass electrode is actually the negative lead and the source of the minute electrical current that the Discovery System uses to measure resistance. Since a complete electrical path must be established to obtain a reading, a second probe with a unique pencil shape is placed on the skin's surface at various acupoints to complete the circuit and allow electrons to flow. The force necessary to make contact at these acupoints is negligible.

It is very responsive, so a series of readings can be obtained rapidly. Both contacts are kept wet to improve conduction. There is a whining sound that rises or falls according to the level of conductance.

Remember, the flow of electrons through the body is dependent on the resistance of the body. The Discovery System measures this resistance and the software simultaneously records and displays the values for the meridian tested. The Discovery System software allows you to keep histories of readings for clients so that their progress can be monitored.

The user of the Discovery System can access extensive built-in product and information libraries and/or directly test products that are not in the libraries. They can then use that information along with their knowledge and training to begin the process of determining how to reestablish balance in the meridians.

Knowledge of human physiology plays a large part in the balancing procedure-all the organs and systems within the body are important for life. Recognizing which organs or systems have an energy imbalance establishes the focal point of the balancing procedure. After balancing the focal area, the other meridians can be balanced in order of importance in the body.

With the combination of ancient knowledge, current research, and technology, the Discovery System ushers in the information age with health care technology for the 21st century and beyond.

The Discovery System is a robust tool for ElectroDermal Screening (EDS). By integrating state-of-the-art technology with an impressive Windows application, the Discovery System allows technicians to evaluate an infinite number of products for use in restoring equilibrium to imbalanced meridians-in a completely non-invasive manner.

Disclaimer: ElectroDermal Screening (EDS) energetic values are used as a complementary tool along with traditional standards of care and diagnostic guidelines established by the AMA and ADA. At this time, the use of (EDS) in the United States is not intended for the purpose of medical diagnosis but can be used to interface patient frequency with treatment frequency.
