According to physics, everything is simply energy. Scientists have discovered that the unifying force from cells to atoms to subatomic particles is ENERGY. Energy has a gradient from lower to higher frequencies. Lower frequency being denser so we can see it (e.g. solid material) and higher frequency (e.g. gases) which are harder to perceive. The energy system (chakras, meridians, etc.) vibrate at a subtle level where most can not percieve them.
An important law to understand is the Law of Conservation of Energy. According to this Law, energy can not be destroyed only transformed. The focus of energy medicine is to access and guide the transformation of energy to serve the highest good of the client. Energy medicine is the practice of balancing the subtle energy system in order to improve physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health well-being.
This scientific technique uses a "bionetics" approach with a computerized testing system that can measure a body's internal energy balance. With the use of a hand-held stylus or probe, we are able to measure the body's electromagnetic energy through the acupuncture points and meridians on the hand and foot, and measure any imbalances through the computer software. We use a special component of the computer system to analyze hair and/or fur DNA. We have the ability to assess the DNA of many animals; actually any warm-blooded animals! It is our goal to utilize this method to help many animals regain internal balance in the quest for animal disease prevention and natural animal health.
History of Electro-Dermal Sreening
The first reported use of electricity in medicine dates back to 2750 B.C., described in Egyptian tombs, using electric eels (malopteurus elecricuis). The Greeks used electric eels for therapeutic benefits which included pain control, can be tracked back to the first century. In more recent history, in 1752, Johann Schaeffer published the book "Electrical Medicine". At this time, physicians were reportedly using electrical medicine in their practices, which included the relief of dental pain.
Very briefly, Ayervedic medicine (from India) which can be traced back to about 3,000 B.C. and Chinese medicine which dates back about 5,000 years is based on an understanding of the subtle energy fields in your body. These ancient sciences recognized that you have a subtle energy system that runs throughout your body. Just like you have a circulatory, digestive or nervous system you also have an energy system (also called qi/chi or prana). Practitioners of Chinese medicine use meridians and practitioners of Ayervedic medicine use chakras, nadis, marma and aura field to assess your energy system to determine if there is an improper energy flow or "blockage". Based upon their assessment, you are then prescribed certain regimens to remove these blocks so that the energy can flow freely.
The Evolution of Electro-Dermal Screening
In the early 1950's, Reinhold Voll, a German medical doctor, was one of the first to connect the use of electricity in conjunction with acupuncture points. Voll developed an electronic testing device for finding acupuncture points electrically. He was very successful in finding acupuncture points and demonstrating that these points had a different resistance to a tiny electrical current passed through them than did the adjacent tissues. Voll began a life-long study identifying the correlations between disease states and changes in electrical resistance of the various acupuncture points. He later discovered that he could change the energetic readings when "medicine" was in contact along the same electrical circuit. This later lead to extensive research on exactly how to balance the vibration of a person that had a disturbance with a particular frequency.
Jump forward about 30 years and you will find that electro-dermal testing instruments have been used widely in Europe and in the last few years in Japan, China, Russia, Canada and the United States. Double-blind studies showing validity have been conducted at UCLA, USC, Stanford and in at last four other countries. One of the most notable findings from the research has been the ability of electrodermal testing to determine appropriate dosing of a regimen. It would be rare to find a western doctor that can determine root cause and at the same time is able to customize a regimen specific for their patient. Unfortunately, in the United States the FDA and the American Medical Association have not recognized electrodermal screening despite the positive results of clinical studies. In some ways, the western model of health care is still in the dark-ages. Use of energy scanning devices such as EKG's, EEG's and MRI's are widely supported and understood as legitimate means for assessment. Electro-Dermal Stress measurement will one day be as widely accepted as these other tools are, primarily because more and more people are turning to alternative health and demanding a wholistic approach to health care.

Kirlian photography refers to a form of photogram made with voltage. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a source of voltage an image is produced on the photographic plate.
Kirlian's work, from 1939 onward, involved an independent rediscovery of a phenomenon and technique variously called "electrography", "electrophotography" and "corona discharge photography." The Kirlian technique is contact photography, in which the subject is in direct contact with a film placed upon a charged metal plate.
The underlying physics (which makes xerographic copying possible) was explored as early as 1777 by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (see Lichtenberg figures). Later workers in the field included Nikola Tesla; various other individuals explored the effect in the later 19th and early 20th centuries.
Kirlian said that the image he was studying might be compared with the human aura. An experiment in evidence of energy fields generated by living entities involves taking Kirlian contact photographs of a picked leaf at set periods, its gradual withering corresponding with a decline in the strength of the aura. In some experiments, if a section of a leaf was torn away after the first photograph, a faint image of the missing section would remain when a second photograph was taken. The Archives of American Art Journal of the Smithsonian Institution published a leading article with reproductions of images of this phenomenon.
