See the Dr or visit a natural health practitioner??

I am often confounded by the negative stigma that is associated with Natural Medicine?? I see so many patients that are frustrated by the orthodox medical system who has not solved their health problems or conditions, and are taking a bag of pills with numerous side effects, yet they have been warned not to come to see an alternative health practitioners as we are unscientific or dangerous. I am puzzled as generally the interventions we are advising in our patients consist of getting better sleep, ways to reduce stress, eating a better, exercise, improving strength, coordination of the muscles and the nervous system, changing diets around to improve health outcomes. None of these are remotely controversial…. all of them have a solid evidence base and we consistently get great results when people apply these methods. In my opinion all patient care should be directed primarily through these natural avenues first, and IF only IF solutions cannot be achieved then a patient should be referred to orthodox medical care for drug treatment.

What is Applied Kinesiology and muscle testing??

Applied Kinesiology and manual muscle testing is simply a gauge of how well your brain and nervous system is controlling your body. Testing muscle strength is one measure of how well the signal from the brain to control the muscle is functioning, if the signal is not working very well then we lose motor output to the muscle. We must remember that motor output to muscle is only one area of function that these nerves have however and that it is possible and highly likely that other areas of the body signalled by that nerve in question are also likely to be dysfunctional. The body has an autonomic nervous system that governs automatic functions like breathing and heart rate and rhythm, digestion and immune response. Ideally we want all of our bodies systems to be functioning optimally dont we? Applied Kinesiology allows the trained practitioner to assess each of these systems and then apply corrections in the the forms of changing inputs to the nervous system and measure and test if a change occurs. It really seems amazing but when you understand the application and how it works within the nervous system not only is it robust scientifically but it is predictable, testable, measurable and reliable that you are going to change the output from the brain and nervous system if you alter afferent input to the nervous system. EVERYTHING is neurology!!

Yes!! Everybody needs to see a Chiropractor….

Everybody has a central nervous system. The control centre for the whole body, from movement to heart rate and the response of your immune system. This means that everybody should see a Chiropractor to make sure that there nervous system is functioning in its best possible state. The body is constantly trying to maintain a state of balance or homeostasis in its many functioning systems. The Chiropractor is the specialist to see when it comes to maintaining that system for the long haul of life.
