Nutrition is an important element in everyone's life but especially for healing.
Without adequate nutrition, the body will not heal well nor perform well.
Diet is analyzed to make sure you are consuming the correct proportions of proteins, essential fatty acids, carbs, fiber, micro and macro nutrients, etc.. However, just consuming the right foods is not enough. It is how your body is breaking down and assimilating these foods that is of greater importance. For example, if there is a problem in digestion, in which you may have no symptoms at all, then your body is not going to heal well nor operate at it's optimal function.
Using a muscle response test (MRT, scroll down to applied kinesiology for explanation) all organ, hormonal and microbial reflexes are tested for any imbalances which may indicate improper or reduced function, reduced assimilation of nutrients or elimination of cellular wastes, hormonal imbalances, enzyme deficiencies, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, hightened inflammatory processes, or the presence of microbes
such as viruses, bacteria, parasites and yeast.
The Bio Scan is a tool utilized to detect even the slightest imbalances early on so serious problems can be prevented and optimal function can be restored.
In working with injuries, chronic pain or chronic conditions, it is imperative to perform a Bio Scan in order to check for imbalances in the system. REASON: Because decreased function or imbalanced function can and will delay the healing process.
Sometimes changing the proportions of the foods consumed is enough. Other
times, depending on the underlying factors creating the imbalance, a specialized nutrient combination may be necessary to correct the problem. We use high potency, all natural, certified organic, pharmaceutical grade nutrients which are synergistically designed to target specific problem areas.
Accelerated healing of injuries, chronic pain and chronic conditions call for an additional amount of specific nutrients which is determined by an MRT and customized
to the your individual needs.
For every chemical reaction that occurs in the body, enzymes provide the stimulus. Enzymes are substances that make life possible. No mineral, vitamin, or hormone
can do any work without enzymes. They are the manual workers that build the body from proteins, carbohydrates and fats. The body may have the raw building materials, but without the
workers "enzymes" the work cannot begin.
Think of it this way, not only does a body need enzymes to break down different types of foods, but the enzymes are the catalysts that make all the other chemical reactions take place. This is everything from the energy made in the mitochondria of the cells, to the elimination of waste products. Without enzymes there would be no building or repairing of tissues, no breathing, no thinking, no life.
Most people, including athletes, are enzyme deficient. Enzyme deficiency reduces proper function of the body, leads to chronic conditions and delays the healing process,
especially with injuries. Many metabolic enzymes are produced by the body, but not in
sufficient amounts for optimum function. Enzymes are also found in raw fruits and vegetables.
Deficiencies are caused by:
• Pesticides and chemicals
• Genetically engineered foods
• Irradiated foods
• Cooking foods
• Microwaved foods
• Processed foods
• Fluoridated water
• Electromagnetic fields
• Heavy metals
• Amalgam dental fillings and root canals
Enzyme Therapy promotes and accelerates the healing process of injuries. A muscle response test (MRT) is performed to identify the specific type of enzyme deficiency present.
Food allergies or sensitivities are most often hidden because symptoms don't usually appear at the time that foods are ingested. In fact the body can have reactions to vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients of the everyday diet. Symptoms can appear days later as aches and pains, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, acne, dizziness, ringing in the ears, asthma, diarrhea, constipation, heart palpitations, itching, anxiety, hyperactivity, depression,... and the list goes on.
In many cases there are no symptoms occurring at all. But, when there is a food sensitivity even without any symptoms, the body sees that food as a foreign invader, much like a germ, and the immune system is stimulated in order to respond to the invader. In other words, your body is always in a battle causing the nervous system to "freeze up", which over time will create imbalances in the body leading to environmental allergies and further imbalances, which eventually result in disease.
Hidden food sensitivities not only engage your body in a constant battle, but in doing so takes a lot of energy out of building and repairing the body, especially injuries and chronic conditions.
In working with injuries and chronic conditions, it is paramount to detect any hidden food sensitivities in order to facilitate and accelerate proper healing of the injury. Detection of sensitivities is done using a muscle response test (MRT) while the client holds items suspect of sensitivity. If a food, vitamin or mineral is detected as a sensitivity, (weakness of the indicator muscle used in the strength test) then the food or substance is removed from the diet for a short period of time, usually six weeks. In a normal elimination diet the food is removed for ninety days, however, the desensitization technique we use in the clinic, speeds up the process of total elimination of the substance from the body.
Allergy/Sensitivity Desensitization and Elimination
This technique is a highly effective variation of Dr.Devi Nambudripad's work called N.A.E.T. (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique).
The desensitization and elimination technique works by "resetting the body" and retraining the brain, nervous system and subsequently the immune system to no longer react to the allergenic substance.
The client holds the items of sensitivity while the technique is being employed.
Environmental Allergies (Seasonal)
Get Rid of Them for Good!
The patient is instructed how to gather plant material including grasses, weeds, tree leafs, mold and dust from around the home and other areas the patient visits on a regular basis. Each item is tested using the muscle response test (MRT) and if the indicator muscle goes weak to that item, then that item or substance is held by the patient during the desensitization technique.
This is highly effective in virtually eliminating seasonal allergies in often times just one or two treatments, and may need to be repeated once a year. People that have had to rely on allergy medications or allergy shots have found complete relief and no longer need the medications. Occassionaly a person may have to have a few desensitizations to completely eliminate the allergy, but this is usually the case only if that person has several serious imbalances going on in the body.
The term "Applied Kinesiology, AK" was founded in 1964 by the American chiropractor George Goodheart and is now used by chiropractors, osteopaths, medical doctors, dentists and others with a license to diagnose.
Dr. George Goodheart found that evaluation of normal and abnormal body function could be accomplished by using muscle tests. Since the original discovery, the principle has broadened to include evaluation of the nervous, vascular, and lymphatic systems, nutrition, acupuncture, and cerebrospinal fluid function, to mention a few.

Autoimmune disorders and chronic inflammation are directly connected to the "Leaky Gut Syndrome."
In addition, there are usually several other offending factors causing the autoimmune response, including vaccines and GMO foods.
In removing the offending factors, autoimmune responses can be reversed and autoimmune diseases can be slowed dramatically.
