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.
For example, the lungs are an organ that require Vitamin C. So a good muscle to test for Vitamin C would be lung muscles (deltoids, serratus anticus, etc.). The liver and kidneys require Vitamin A. So good Vitamin A muscles would be related to those (Pectoralis major sternal, psoas, etc.)
Right in line with this concept of using related muscle and organs to check for needed supplements, if you want to see if something is detrimental to the body check the related organ that it would have an effect on.
For example, check to see if water is healthy by using a kidney muscle-the psoas. Check grains or wheat against a liver muscle-the pectoralis major sternal. Check refined sugar, natural, or artificial sweeteners against pancreas, adrenal gland, liver muscles.
When you check a specific substance against a target organ, there is going to be much more accuracy in the muscle testing.
