How does the technology work?
ZYTO technology relies upon an array of biocommunication principles and concepts that provide users with deeper insight and information when making decisions related to health and wellness. On a basic level, ZYTO technology is designed to energetically analyze your body’s specific Galvanic Skin Response.
You can learn more about ZYTO technology and concepts on the Getting a Scan page.
Are ZYTO results reproducible?
Because ZYTO technology interfaces with the body’s fastest moving component, energy, biosurveys can collect a significant amount of information in a short amount of time. Since energy moves and fluctuates so quickly, you are likely to see differences if you repeat a biosurvey and compare individual data points. To learn more, refer to the Duplication page.
Does ZYTO technology measure meridian points?
Non-specific measurements are taken via the skin using galvanic skin response (GSR). Although no meridian points are directly measured, many Virtual Items represent meridians, individual acupuncture points, and EAV points (Electroacupuncture according to Voll).
Is ZYTO technology diagnostic?
ZYTO software is not diagnostic. Instead, the software provides you with information derived from GSR readings—ultimately giving you the ability to make better decisions about individual health and wellness.
How long should I wait between scans?
Your practitioner or wellness advocate who administered the scan can tell you the recommended usage period that will allow the products, services, or lifestyle changes to have their full effect. Usually this is between 3 to 4 weeks, but can vary depending on specific circumstances.
How can I find a ZYTO scan near me?
You can find a ZYTO scan near you by doing a Google search for “ZYTO” followed by the city or state you live in. Many practitioners also provide ZYTO scanning remotely. Search for “ZYTO Remote” to find practitioners who offer these services. Searching for #zytoscan on social media websites is another way to find ZYTO scan providers.
How do I install the ZYTO software?
After you purchased your ZYTO software, you should have received an email with a link to installation instructions and the install download. If you cannot locate this email, visit zyto.com/setup and select the software you purchased for instructions on how to download and install the software.
Complete installation instructions can also be found in the first chapter of all software User Manuals.

You are permitted to install your ZYTO program on 2 different computers. However, you may only open and operate the software on 1 computer at a time. In order to use the program, you must have the software license claimed on that computer.
Before you can claim your license on a second computer, you must first release it from the computer where it is currently being used, or currently claimed. You must be online to release and claim your license.
Can I transfer my license to someone else?
Your Compass license can also be easily transferred online. Visit the Transfer page for more details.
Can I transfer my Compass or Balance to a different product line?
Why are my clients not receiving the reports that I email?
Typically, this is because the client’s email is sending the email into the junk mail folder. Ask your client to look in their junk email folder for the report email. You may also want to double check that you have input the client’s email address correctly.
To verify a client’s email:
- In the Main Menu, click Clients > My Clients.
- Search for the client in the search field and in the results, click the client’s name to access their profile. The client’s email address should appear in the center column.
- If you need to make any changes to the email, click Edit Info.
- Click Save after updating the email address.
If you are unable to set up your email address in the ZYTO software in order to send reports, refer to the Setting Up Your Email to Send Reports video.
I chose All Products for my scan, so why does my report just show supplements?
Choosing to scan all products in a product line or multiple product lines means all of the available products will be included in the scan to effectively bring the biomarkers into balance. It does not guarantee that the report will give you a mix of oils and supplements in your list of top biologically coherent products. The report lets you know the products your body showed the strongest preference for without taking into account whether they are oils or supplements.
How can I better understand the Balance software and reports?
Our 5.0 Basics, Balance 5.0 Training, and Balance 5.0 Auxiliary Training provides videos and quizzes to help you use the ZYTO Balance like a pro. You can access this training and additional resources by visiting training.zyto.com and logging in.
We also put together a quick reference guide that answers specific questions you may have about the ZYTO Balance and ZYTO technology in general.

Are there fees for placing my account on hold or reactivating it?
No. When you place your account on hold, you will be able to continue using it for the full 30 days that you have already paid for.

Is the ZYTO Hand Cradle cleared by the FDA?
Yes, the Hand Cradle is cleared by the FDA as a Class II Medical Device for the measurement of galvanic skin response.
Why is the Hand Cradle not working on my client during a scan?
The software indicates a solid connection when the contact points on the Hand Cradle graphic turn from silver to gold. If you still cannot establish a connection, you should first check that the USB is properly plugged in to both the computer and the Hand Cradle. If connection continues to be a problem, try the following:
- Dry hands can be moistened by running them under warm water and then drying them so they remain slightly damp. If a connection is still difficult, you can also moisten a paper towel and lay it on the Hand Cradle before your client places their hand on it.
- Cold hands can be warmed by the above method or by clapping them together and rubbing vigorously for several seconds.
- Lotion can act as an insulator. If your client has lotion on, have them first wash with warm water and soap.
- View the Connection Tip Video for additional tips.
If the above methods fail, please contact Technical Support for further assistance.
What does the Hand Cradle measure?
The Hand Cradle measures galvanic skin response (GSR) to gauge your body’s responses to digital signatures representing various items such as biomarkers and nutritional products. View the Getting a scan page to learn more about GSR.
How do I clean the Hand Cradle?
You can use a damp wash cloth, cleaning wipe, or alcohol wipe to gently clean the Hand Cradle. Clean the Hand Cradle after each scan or as you see necessary. The Hand Cradle should be dry before proceeding with a scan.
What if my client has a disability or is too small to use the Hand Cradle?
Since the ZYTO Hand Cradle measures galvanic skin response (GSR), you are able to place the cradle on any part of the body where skin coverage is adequate for all 6 contact points—such as the thigh or abdomen. Placing both hands on the Hand Cradle can also be a useful approach when scanning small children and infants.
Can I scan someone that is pregnant or has a pacemaker?
Yes, there are no known contra-indications for using the ZYTO Hand Cradle.
I lost my cable that connects the Hand Cradle to the computer. How do I replace it?
You can purchase a special cord with a USB connection on each end from any electronics store, or contact Account Services to order a new cord.
Can I charge for scans?
Yes, you can charge for performing scans and are encouraged to do so. Charging for scans adds value to the process as well as your products and helps cover the cost of your monthly subscription.
