NET the missing piece of health

Your emotions and mindset are a major factor in your wellbeing. They dictate your happiness in life, your successes, you freedom, and your health. This is the big missing link in the health care model and in the world as a whole.

When you have been to all the doctors, specialists,  and professional and all your tests look good. When your physical findings are fine, but you are still not getting well, the fall back of the medical model is to say it is all in your head. This can be totally true! The bad part is that their procedure for this is psychological therapy if you are lucky and psychiatric meds if you are not so lucky. There is a far better solution. Continue reading

But usually there is right combination to the lock that is blocking their health form shining through. I use my clinical experience, my intuition, and kinesiology muscle testing to get to the source of their health concerns. Continue reading

Burnout, a result of adrenal fatigue

End stages of adrenal fatigue

Adrenal Gland Stress over looked in Chiropractic care

Adrenal Glands are the cause of many chronic health problems.

Are you a busy, hard working, under contestant stress? Have you ever pushed yourself so much that you just don’t have the same vitality anymore, a dullness has come over you, life starts to agitate you? Is your sleep not as fruitful as it used to be, you can’t catchup anymore, you can’t get you batteries recharged like they used to? This is quite common and it can be adrenal fatigue.

When you push yourself you create stress on your body. It has a mechanism to deal with this but there are times when it becomes too worn down or overwhelmed. This is the point where your stress glands, the adrenal glands, can’t function properly to support you anymore.

What are Adrenal Glands?

They are small glands that sit on top of your kidneys and they respond when you are under stress. The stress can be of an emotional, physical, chemical, and/or thermal cause. When your adrenal glands are continuously stimulated without a break to recover, they can become fatigued. When this happens, they cannot responds as well to help you overcome stress. This can lead to a long list of symptoms that can lead to chronic disease.

People use the term “burnout” commonly and that maybe for good reason, adrenal fatigue is also quite common. The adrenal glands help to support many aspects of your health. This deficiency of adrenal gland hormones can cause may syndromes. One is known as “burnout”. Continue reading

What supplements do you need?

Nutritional response muscle testingNutritional response muscle testing

Health care professionals and lay people have been using muscle testing to see if a person needs a nutritional supplement for decades. Some call this “Nutritional Response testing”. Do you know where this all began? It started with Dr. George Goodheart, the father of applied kinesiology.

There are many “arm pull down” muscle testing techniques for figuring what nutritional supplements to give out there. But there are ways to be more specific with muscle testing. Nutritional muscle testing began with using specific muscles that are related to the organ or function of the body that you are targeting with your test. Continue reading

Looking deeper into muscle relationships

Holistic muscle relationshipsHolistic muscle relationships

When Dr. George Goodheart first started testing and fixing muscles with treating the origin and insertion of a muscle, he didn’t know the farther reaching relationships that muscles had in the body. But then he started to find clues of the muscles relationships with the internal organs of the body.

Talking to the inner body

Muscles are related to organs. With the realization applied kinesiology doctors are able to communicate directly with the body. We combine muscle testing with what we have learned as health care professionals. We are able to see specifically what organs needed as a therapy, dietary supplement, etc., and we are able to monitor their progress all with muscle testing.

What makes Applied Kinesiology so effective

Applied kinesiology treatment of musclesAK muscle treatment

The simple treatment that started Applied Kinesiology (AK) is still one of the most powerful tools out there. Correcting muscle function with the origin and insertion technique. It worked for Dr. Goodheart in 1964 and still works today. Correcting the weak muscle instead of trying to stretch or weaken a shortened/tight muscle is our secret to success. Even with some of the most complex musculoskeletal problems. Combining this with proper treatment of trigger points is what sets AK practitioners apart from other in the health care field.

AK muscle work basics

Watch this video to learn what we do to correct muscle imbalances. These basics are what is taught in the first few sessions of the ICAK basic course. When they are combined properly, the results seem miraculous.

What is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, what is it?What is AK?

In 1964 Dr. George Goodheart was working on one of his patients who had a chronic shoulder problem. He examined the muscle that was responsible and with a little work it seemed to magically respond. Dr. Goodheart found that the patient’s inhibited (weak) muscle could be turned back on instantly if he knew what the cause of the problem was. This helped him to pinpoint the cause of the dysfunction and to bring about quick healing the toughest musculoskeletal  problems. This was the birth of Applied Kinesiology (AK).

Later Dr. Goodheart additionally learned that a facilitated (strong) muscles can also be used as an indicator. This is done by seeing what may temporarily weaken it. Fortunately this added another level to the possibilities for diagnosis and was a game changer. We now have more ways to investigate deeper, underlying health problems of all types quickly and efficiently.  Continue reading

Paleo Lifestyle Adjustments

Are you causing your health problems?

Since electric lights have been popular, our natural daily cycles have changed.

Since electric lights have been popular, our natural daily cycles have changed.

As a holistic doctor, I have to look at all parts of a person’s life to see if there is something negatively influencing their health. Today’s society creates a lifestyle that can cause some major health problems. We all know some of the basics that are preached by health care practitioners in the natural field:

  • Whole food diet
  • Good balance of cardio and anaerobic exercise
  • Using natural personal products
  • Thinking positive

There is something that not many doctors will touch upon: a patient’s daily schedule. If we think about Paleo living, the first thing that we think about is food. But there is much more to consider- a Paleo lifestyle. Continue reading

Back to your regularly scheduled symptoms

Symptoms that have a time of day

24 hour acupuncture meridian clock

24 hour acupuncture meridian clock

Symptoms may show up at specific time every day for a few reasons. One is that acupuncture meridians related to your organs are on a daily schedule. Acupuncture meridians are defined paths of energy that flow through the body. They can even be measured in dead bodies with an ohm meter, so there is nothing unscientific about them. Here is the crash course on acupuncture meridian:

  • Each acupuncture meridian is also related to an organ in the body
  • Each meridian/organ combo is related to a 2 hour period of time in our 24 hour day
  • This is the time that the particular meridian/organ is strongest in your body
  • At the opposite side of the clock is when the meridian/organ combo is weakest in your body
  • A symptom that my reoccur at the same time every day may be due to an imbalance in the meridian timing
