Applied Kinesiology Muscle testing Washington, DC

Applied Kinesiology Muscle testing Washington, DC.

Have you been struggling with an issue that you cannot get resolved? I am an experienced doctor of chiropractic who had health issues for years and needed to find solutions. Sometimes these issues may just not be because a bone in the spine is misaligned, or the person is eating the wrong food, or because of emotional stress, but a combination of all of these. A holistic doctor has to look into several aspects of a patient’s life to see what may be a cause of dysfunction. The truth is that your health is always shinning under the surface just like the sun is always shinning behind the clouds. You just need to find someone that can find the combination to your health.

The Combination Lock

In holistic health care we see your life as a combination lock. We find the right numbers, then put them into the right order, then turn the combination dial with the right timing. Then the lock opens!

Muscle testing is using a tool to crack the code

Have you ever seen a movie where a safe in being “cracked”? The safe-cracker doesn’t know the combination. He uses a listening device or computer as his guide to figure code that unlocks and opens the safe. Muscle testing is a tool that helps a doctor figure out exactly what your body needs, how much, how often, and when to stop. This takes the guess work out of finding the solution to your challenges. It uses feedback directly from your body to see exactly what you need.

Muscle testing can be used to find out exactly what your body needs to fix joint pains, tightness, discomfort. It can be used to find out exactly what dietary supplement. It can be used to find the solution to your emotional state. Muscle testing eliminates the guess work and help the doctor put you on the fastest track for wellbeing.


Comparing holistic medicine to natural and contemporary medicine

Let’s use an analogy to compare how each health care profession would take care of your car. If your car’s check engine light comes on, you know there is a problem. You would probably want to get it checked out by a professional to make sure everything is all right.

The medical model of healthcare

If you were to take your car into the medical doctor to see why your check engine light is on, they would probably give you a few solutions:

  • Take the light bulb out of the check engine light so that it doesn’t bother you anymore.
  • Cut the wire to the check engine light so that it doesn’t bother you anymore.
  • Prescribe you a medication that will help you to not care that the light is on.

If there are any further problems, please come back in and we will resolve them.

The natural medicine model of healthcare

If you were to take your car into a natural doctor to see why your check engine light is on, they would probably give you this solution:

  • The check engine light is on. This can mean that the engine oil is low. We have done some testing and have found that your engine is low in oil. The natural solution is to fill the oil level back to normal so that you don’t ruin your engine. If you keep refilling your engine with oil regularly you will save your engine from destruction.

This is a much better solution than the modern medicine model of removing the check engine light, cutting the wire that causes it to light up, or prescribing a medication that will cause you to just not care. But we can even take this solution one step further.

The holistic medicine model

If you were to take your car into a holistic doctor to see why your check engine light is on they would probably give you this solution:

  • The check engine light is on. We have done some testing and have found that your engine oil is low. If the oil has become low there must be a reason for that. We have done an exam to find the problem, there is an oil leak. We are going to fix the oil leak so that the oil doesn’t become low any more.  Then we will fill the oil level up to its proper level again.

If there are any further problems, please come back in and we will resolve them.

Chiropractic and Holistic medicine is the complete solution

Holistic medicine looks to the source of the problem instead of helping you to ignore what is really going on. We don’t want to help you subdue the symptoms, we want the problem solved. Natural medicine is much better with its solution of replacing what is needed. But holistic medicine wants to fix the need. We want to eliminate having to take medications or even natural substances to cover up what the real problem is. This is true wellbeing.
