Electrodermal Screening or EDS Is A Breakthrough In The Evaluation And Treatment of Illness!

EDS or Electro-Dermal Screening Is Also Known By The Names Electro-Acupuncture by Voll or EAV and Electro-Meridian-Imaging or EMI and RyodorakuWhat Is Electrodermal Screening or EDS and How Long Has It Been In Use?

Electrodermal Screening, EDS was invented in 1951 Dr.Yoshio Nakatani M.D., Ph.D as a way of electronic evaluation of each of the organs and channels or meridians of the meridian system using a simple device to measure skin conductance at the Yuan-Source points of the hand, wrists and ankles, feet and toes.

In doing so Dr. Nakatani added a significant new tool to the arsenal of diagnostic tools in the practice of acupuncture as performed throughout the world.

Dr. Nakatani named this new method "Ryodoraku". In the US it has been identified by various names depending upon who manufactures and sells the equipment. It is also called by some Electro-Meridian Imaging (EMI), or Electro-Acupuncture by Voll (EAV).

Why Is This Technological Breakthrough So Important to You?

The discovery and invention of Electrodermal Screening is so important to you because when one compares the findings of knowledgeable masters of Oriental Medicine or Traditional Chinese Medicine using pulse diagnosis, with the findings of EMI, the meridians are identical in terms of the energetic level of function of the organ systems and meridians they represent.

Such masters of oriental pulse diagnosis are known to palpate the 12 pulse positions for as long as 15-30 minutes per wrist. A complete evaluation of symptoms, tongue and pulse takes up to 30 minutes and is very subjective.

Electrodermal screenings evaluation of the 12 Yuan-Source points takes no more than an hour and is not subjective.

Electrodermal screening evaluation of your Yuan-Source points determines if an individual meridian is in excess or deficiency of Qi in comparison to the average energetic measurements all 12 primary meridians.

It cannot determine other aspects such as energetic qualities of dampness, wind, heat, cold or other characteristics that a practitioner of Oriental Medicine might be able to determine via examination of symptoms, tongue and pulse.

However the ability to measure the strength of the Qi of each channel and therefore the functioning level of its companion organ system is nothing less than stunning in the ease of measurement and what one can do with that knowledge in terms of the effectiveness of treatment.

Let's be clear, it was virtually impossible for anyone to quickly and comprehensibly measure the quantity of Qi in each of the meridians and identify which acupuncture points to treat before the development of this technology.

It is likely that if your practitioner does not use this equipment you may not be getting all the appropriate treatment you need.

So What Does This Mean In Terms of Treatment And Your Health?

The wonderful thing about testing with the Electro-dermal screening equipment is that you get to see a graphic image on the computer screen or a print out of the strength of each of the 12 meridians and the state of balance bilaterally.

This leads to very simple acupuncture treatments that restore the proper strength of Qi and the proper balance between left and right half of each of the 12 meridians.

In short....improved health and well being for you.

Think of it this way, if any component part of your body is starved for energy it will not function properly and will eventually begin serious dysfunction leading to serious disease.

So, when you are able to reduce energy to those systems that are hyper-functioning, or increase energy to those that are hypo-functioning, many symptoms and diseases will vanish when the body re-regulates itself as it does automatically when energy is flowing at appropriate levels in all meridians and organs.

We can measure your progress over time with the Electrodermal Screening graphs and by your improving health! If you don't like needles, we can perform effective treatment by stimulating points with pressure, light or micro-current.

Are There Any Other Therapeutic Applications of This Technology?

Additionally with Electro-dermal Screening we can do an evaluation of the Musculo-Tendino meridians for Orthopedic conditions by using the Tsing (Jing-Well) points of each meridian.

This allows us to do appropriate treatments to benefit injury conditions.

You owe it to yourself to make an appointment so that we can make an evaluation of the status of the energetic system of your meridians and the organ systems they affect.

This can be the thing that can work to improve your health like nothing else has. Keep in mind it is Qi that fosters growth and healing in your body. Qi is the energy that powers your immune system and everything that happens in your body!

Here Is A Testimonial I'll Never Forget!:

"I don't care what is wrong with you...see Dr. Eichenauer. He can help you with anything. He helped me with every problem I ever presented him with.

I even had major surgery for a complete bowel obstruction and he got me back to work months faster than the hospital MDs told me was possible.

His herbal formulas worked wonders for me that time as they always do.

When I called him and told him my symptoms that night, Dr. Eichenauer was the one who told me to go straight to the emergency room right away that night when my bowel was obstructed."
