I had my Friesian gelding, Douwe, tested to see if he had any deficiencies or health issues using Computerized ElectroDerman screening. I have had electrodermal screening done on myself with wonderful results, learning numerous things about my adrenal glands and that I had a magnesium deficiency. I then took prescribed homeopathic remedies and supplements to help balance my body. I had Douwe's hair sample tested by Claudia Garner and his saliva tested by Cheryl Bergstrom, the same woman I was tested by. Douwe was prescribed Bach flower remedies for his past emotional issues (Rock Water, Wild Oat, and Rescue Remedy) and some tissue salts to help with his muscle endurance. Amazingly, I noticed an immediate change in his personality; he seemed happier and more lighthearted. He tends to be introverted and can be less sweet than other horses I have worked with. When I first bought him he seemed depressed and didn't want me to pet him or give him my attention. Over time, he has come out of his shell and I continue to learn new things about who he is, daily.
I highly recommend Claudia Garner's testing to anyone wishing to gain more insight into their horse's well-being
More information about ElectroDermal Screening:
"CEDS is a technique registered with the U.S. Federal Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as “Galvanic Skin Response”. The computer is classified as a Class II device. CEDS balances the meridians with energy or harmonic frequencies. CEDS focuses heavily on homeopathy, Herring's Law and Homotoxicology.
Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) is used to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the horse's energetic health and balance. This process involves measuring electrical conductivity at responsive points (meridian points) on the skin.
According to European medical research, acupuncture points are related to the body's organs and organ systems. Major groups of points are connected through channels, or meridians. As a result, stress associated with the corresponding organs can be surveyed using the indicated points. If stress values are above or below equilibrium, the System's extensive computer database will allow consideration of a wide range of possibilities that might help the horse regain a healthy balance. The MSAS allows consideration of thousands of herbal, homeopathic, and nutritional products, as well as toxins, viral intrusions, bacteria, pesticides, water contaminants, heavy metals etc. Overall, an MSAS provides a completely non-invasive method for gaining valuable information about the body's vital functions."
