Patrick Murphy, medical herbalist, trained in electrodermal screening in Murcia, Spain. He was trained by Professor Joaquin Fernandez Alcaraz and is fully accredited in carrying out this popular health screening alternative medicine method.
Patrick Murphy first became interested in electrodermal screening a number of years ago when he was tested by Professor Alcaraz. To his surprise a number of health issues that came up during the testing were 100 per cent accurate when he went on to have CT scans.
"Due to effectiveness of the testing I decided I wanted to learn more and trained with Professor Alcatraz until I became completely proficient," he said.
Electrodermal screening is a diagnostic method used in alternative medicine. By measuring the skin's electrical resistance, electrodermal screening is said to detect energy imbalances along meridians (invisible lines of energy flow in traditional Chinese medicine ).
According to proponents, electrodermal screening may help to detect and treat illnesses such as allergies, organ weakness, food intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, and more.
During the screening, a person typically holds a probe in one hand, while a second probe touches another part of the body. A tiny electrical current (which cannot be detected by the person being tested ) is sent through the circuit and a reading of between 0 and 100 is made on a galvanometer. Readings can be taken at different places on the skin, corresponding with acupuncture points, to determine if there is an imbalance in a person's energy which may signal illness.
In addition, a potential allergenic substance may be placed in a holder on the circuit — a higher reading on the galvanometer suggests a greater sensitivity to the substance, according to proponents. A person can also be tested for different types of treatment. Samples of various remedies (such as supplements ) may be placed in a holder as the probe is touched to the affected area.
