Alternative Medicine O.K. or NOT

I am considering whether or not to have my daughter undergo what is called Electro-dermal screening. From what I understand, it is a computerized type of diagnostic tool. I don’t want to do this if it, in any way, is frowned upon by competent Church authorities. Can you please help me with this? My daughter is suffering, and has been suffering for many years. I am trying desperately to get her some answers regarding her ongoing health problems. Traditional medicine has not helped.

In Christ Jesus,
