Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll (EAV), also known as EDS (Electrodermal Screening) is an innovative testing method used extensively throughout Europe to diagnose and treat energetic imbalances and pre-disease conditions and is growing in popularity in the United States. EAV utilizes the body’s acupuncture meridians or the “energetic system” as a means of communicating with the body. This energetic system is a network of communication pathways in touch with even the smallest corner of your body.
In 1950 Dr. Voll was able to scientifically map an energetic baseline for all organs. It was later found that diseases of organs present themselves in a similar way. By indirectly measuring this energetic system, EAV can evaluate the functional condition and general health of the entire body, including determining the presence or absence of parasites, bacteria, fungi, viruses, and toxins.
EAV is not meant to act as a replacement for other patient evaluation methods but rather functions as a complementary means of information gathering. EAV currently provides an invaluable general assessment of a patient’s state of health and is frequently used as a powerful tool for remedy and dental material selection as well as for evaluating tooth stresses and jaw infections.
