Applied Kinesiology & The “Total Person” Concept of Health
There are three basic factors we consider in maintaining or restoring your health naturally, these are evaluation of your structure, chemical (biochemical) and mental (emotional) status. They form an equilateral triangle. If one side of the triad becomes deficient, diminished health results and may lead to a significant health problem.
When a patient comes to our office with their health challenges we use Applied Kinesiology techniques to evaluate body function, metabolic and nutritional imbalances.
Applied Kinesiology combines testing and evaluations from many different disciplines, using muscle response testing as functional neurology as a tool or guide for diagnosis and patient care.
Thousands of years ago the ancient Chinese observed that every muscle in the body has a connection or link to a specific organ, gland or acupuncture meridian. By testing the strength of its related muscle looking for facilitation or inhibition we get a glimpse of the condition of that particular organ or tissue.
Functional muscle response testing helps us uncover the structural, chemical and mental problem that may be in your body. It can also provide for us the best treatment options to restore your health.
Finding the Root Cause of the Problem
First, we do an extensive review of the history of your health concern(s). This is followed by a detailed thorough physical examination. We also perform a metabolic and nutritional evaluation of your major organs and systems. We use standard laboratory tests including comprehensive blood tests and other functional medicine tests may be necessary and discussed with you if they may be needed. Then we analyze you for postural imbalances, your gait while walking, and how you move and bend. By combining these findings with muscle testing, we develop a unique insight into the cause(s) of your problem.
