What Is ZYTO Biocommunication and What Can It Do for You?

Biocommunication in general can be defined as the science of communication between or within living things, including animals, plants, microorganisms, and fungi. When we talk about biocommunication in terms of ZYTO technology, however, we are referring to communication between a machine and an individual.


In our modern age, we have all kinds of machines that can take measurements of the human body: blood-pressure monitors, electrocardiographs, thermometers, blood glucose meters, and on and on. You could think of these devices as asking questions about the body and then recording the answers. While ZYTO isn’t a diagnostic tool like these devices, it also asks the body “questions” and records the responses.


A biofeedback sensor

Along with these other measurement devices, a ZYTO biocommunication scan is technically a form of biofeedback. The idea behind biofeedback is that if you have greater awareness of your physiological functions, you can manipulate and influence those functions through a number of methods. In other words, the more information you have about your body, the better the decisions you will be able to make to influence your overall wellness.


As a biofeedback sensor, the ZYTO scanner is classified as an electrodermograph. Measuring the skin on the wrist, hand, or finger for conductance, potential, and resistance, an electrodermograph can gauge body responses as unexpected stimuli are introduced. Greater conductivity of the skin resulting from more sweat in a sweat duct can indicate increased anxiety in an individual. Voltage that occurs from the interaction of sweat glands and the body’s internal tissues is called skin potential.1


In contrast to skin conductance and skin potential, skin resistance is the measurement of the amount of opposition the skin encounters when a current is run across it. This is also known as galvanic skin response, and this is the technology the ZYTO scanner is based on.


Biofeedback and beyond

Electrodermographs have traditionally been limited to detecting stress from psychological stimulus to help people manage their stress and anxiety levels through conscious means such as breathing deep and focusing on certain things. Through galvanic skin response, ZYTO goes beyond this limited application of the technology by introducing what we call Virtual Items to the body.


Virtual Items are digitally encoded representations of physical items. So, in addition to introducing something external that the body responds to, it can also respond to representations of body systems as well as representations of items used to balance the body such as supplements, essential oils, and foods. This application of the technology was first pioneered by Dr. Reinhard Voll in the 1960s, and has now been made much easier and more accessible with the use of ZYTO hardware and software.


ZYTO: More information, more possibilities

ZYTO biocommunication technology helps you consider biologically coherent wellness options you may not have thought of before by providing you with a variety of data points from which to make decisions. Because the data comes directly from the body, it is highly accurate and personalized.


Practitioners who use the ZYTO Balance, Select, or Elite systems often remark that ZYTO scanning not only backs up other tests, but also allows them to ask important questions that they would have never thought of asking the client otherwise—leading to an “aha” moment for them and their client. Additionally, network marketers and other wellness advocates routinely remark that the recommendations from ZYTO scans keep clients coming back time and time again.
