Index of EAV Devices

Stephen Barrett, M.D.

Thousands of practitioners use phony "electrodiagnostic" devices to help select their recommended treatment. These devices, which are fancy galvanometers, merely measure skin resistance to the passage of electrical current. However, many are claimed to determine the cause of any disease by detecting the "energy imbalance" causing the problem. Some are also claimed to detect whether someone is allergic or sensitive to foods, deficient in vitamins, or has defective teeth. Some devices are claimed to "reprogram" body systems., correct energy ombalances, and/or to imprint products with some corrective ability.Some operators claim to tell whether a disease, such as cancer or AIDS, is not present. The diagnostic procedure is most commonly to as Electroacupuncture according to Voll (EAV) or electrodermal screening (EDS). Many carry disclaimers that they do not diagnose or treat. However, these appear to be said in an attempt to protect the manufacturer and/or operators from regulatory action.
