Nutrition & Sensitivities
Most of us are aware that good nutrition is critical to exceptional health. “Nutrition” refers to the molecules and minerals that feed the body’s cells and functions. These molecules and minerals must be readily available for use by the body to be acquired and utilized by the body’s tissues and organs. Only then can we say that our nutritional intake is sufficient.
Food can provide good nutrition and includes everything that we put in our mouth. With so many choices available to us in the modern diet and most of us pressed for time, many of the foods we eat provide little to no nutritional value. Even those that choose a diet rich in whole foods and organics many feel lethargic and lacking in vital energy. While organic foods are more likely to provide bio-available minerals and nutrients, there may still be an imbalance within the system. At this point lifestyle choice becomes a major contributor to human health. Sometimes the body is unable to process the foods that we eat effectively, rendering foods with beneficial nutrients becoming unavailable to the Body’s systems.
We can eat great foods but are they really nourishing our system?
Kinesiology can help with nutrition in many ways through muscle monitoring. In a balancing session we can determine which foods groups are beneficial or not beneficial to the body as a whole. We can also gain a better understanding and awareness of lifestyle choices and their affects on the system. Through the session we can review current “nutrition” through the body (via muscle testing) and gain knowledge of how to optimise our functional energy through improvements to our diet, digestion, absorption, circulation, assimilation, and elimination. Kinesiology can also work by disclosing insufficiencies and deficiencies in key nutrients and testing which ones are priorities to address. Extra nutrients can make a big difference in your quality of life, vitality and energy levels.
Sensitivities can be described as any substances that cause a negative reaction in the body and do not have to involve the immune system. These sensitivities can produce an imbalance in the system, which can cause the body to react in a variety of ways.
Kinesiology can work with sensitivity imbalances like:
- Low energy or fatigue
- Diarrhoea or constipation
- Anxiety and depression
- Migraines and headaches
- Eczema, Psoriasis, or other skin rashes
- Hay fever
- Asthma and shortness of breath
Sensitivities can occur from many sources including: lifestyle choices, home and work environment, foods, beverages, and pharmaceuticals/supplements consumed, exposure to pets and animals, and exposure to environmental toxins. Understanding what exposures are causing our bodies to react is the starting point to finding the cause of our sensitivity reaction. Through gentle muscle testing, education, and awareness Kinesiology can help determine the changes that may need to take place to ensure greater health and vitality.
Nutrition is one of the most important aspects of human existence. Understanding your individual requirements through kinesiology can be vital to your optimal health.
