What is Nutritional Kinesiology (Muscle Testing)?
In order for you to begin the healing process we need to make sure you understand what Nutritional Kinesiology is right from the start. It is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you utilizing kinesiology (muscle testing) without an explanation you may find it strange or mysterious. I felt that way when I first encountered it and, therefore, I have studied it extensively to see if it really worked. Being treated by a practitioner that utilized kinesiology to test nutritional supplements helped me greatly improve my own health.
In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the “disease” or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.).
In Nutritional Kinesiology we do not diagnose or treat disease but we also have two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using clinical nutrition).
The analysis is performed simply by using your body’s own muscle group in combination with acupressure points to determine where the underlying weakness is in the body and then, using the same technique we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in the analysis.
The analysis is done through testing the body’s neurological reflexes, acupressure points, and organ reflexes. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old. Each reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing these reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that helps us identify what your needs and how well we are meeting those needs.
How Do We Access the Nutritional Kinesiology Reflexes?
If we were to hook you up to an EKG machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right? What is actually happening during that procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the EKG record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. We could then study this graph and tell you what it all means. In Nutritional Kinesiology, instead of connecting electrodes to the specific points being tested, the practitioner contacts these points with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscles of your extended arm. If the reflex being contacted is not balanced, the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm and the arm will weaken and drop.
This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which may be affecting your health.
Our next step is to test specific high quality nutritional supplements against those weak areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.
Decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step of supporting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be imbalanced in the first place. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health.
It’s that simple!
In Nutritional Kinesiology we use specific clinical nutrition to address the causes of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to heal and support itself.
Having been tested through decades of clinical use on tens of thousands of clients, and on clients from many different types of health care practitioners, you can be assured that Nutrition Kinesiology is capable of evaluating and possibly solving your health concerns.
A complete analysis can be done on each client on each subsequent visit, thereby revealing the next layers of dysfunction so these can also be addressed and supported.
In this way, each client gets a completely individualized treatment plan in the correct sequence for his or her body.
Very much like opening a combination lock, you must use the right numbers in the right sequence and in the right direction at the right time – then the lock opens.
By following the correct sequence as revealed through Nutrition Kinesiology you don’t “shot-gun” your diet or supplements. With proper analysis, we can determine the correct food supplements for you – designed to give your body the best possible chance of getting well and staying well.
1. Through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balanced and improved health.
2. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to “supplement” your current diet. That’s why they are called “food supplements.”
3. Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet & eating habits and in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results.
Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances lead to a breakdown in resistance, or immunity, and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (chemical, microscopic, or otherwise). The good news is that it may be possible to reverse the process!
Each cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. The health of each organ is dependent on making the correct nutrients available to upgrade or to maintain the health of the body at a cellular level.
Nutritional Kinesiology tells you when and what to use to bring about the desired results. With this understanding of what we do, we feel you can better understand how we are able to work with you to help you more effectively improve your health.
It is important to remember that in the end you are the one responsible for your own health. We wish you the best of luck in your quest to take back full responsibility for your health. Just remember to do it one step at a time and that we are here to guide you in that journey.
Once we accept your case, you can count on us to do everything in our ability to help you achieve your health objectives and to help you achieve a healthier, happier life.
