Do you or someone you know suffer from continuous anxiety about a traumatic event that happened in the past? Is this interfering with their life? Their relationships? Their wellbeing?

Post traumatic stress disorder develops after an emotionally terrifying situation happens in conjunction with continuous secretions of certain stress hormones that cement a “flight or fight” reaction into the nervous system. For many people this condition can severely derail their lives.  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. 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 that the muscles were related to the internal organs of the body.

Talking to the inner body

With the realization that muscles are related to organs, applied kinesiology doctors were able to communicate directly with the body. Combining 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 AK muscle work so effective

Applied kinesiology treatment of musclesAK muscle treatment

The one technique that started 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 when it comes to 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 applied kinesiology basic course. When they are combined properly, the results seem miraculous.

What is Applied Kinesiology?

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

Applied kinesiology is a muscle testing diagnostic technique that was discovered in 1964 by Dr. George Goodheart. He found that an inhibited (weak) muscle can be turned back on instantly if you know what the cause of the problem is. This helps with quick healing the toughest musculoskeletal  problems.

He later figured out that you can use facilitated (strong) muscles to use as an indicator to find out what is going on in the body. This helps to heal deeper, underlying health problems off 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

Organs have a time of day

24 hour acupuncture meridian clock

24 hour acupuncture meridian clock

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
