Problem solving with Systematic Kinesiology
Systematic Kinesiology is one of the fastest growing fields in natural health therapies. Not only is its approach holistic, its ability to be tailored to each individual client means it’s ultra specific. It’s dynamic, responsive, immediate, and an accurate way to interpret what the body is saying.
The body has many ways to give us signals about our health – pain, discomfort, thirst, loss of function, rashes, swelling, tiredness, and many more. These signals don’t manifest by themselves, they are the result of a process.
If you have a health issue, let’s take as an example, a headache. If I asked what the problem was you’d likely say, “I suffer from headaches”.
So the problem is the headache, right? But is it really the problem? Or is it actually the symptom (or a result) of a process. This is an important distinction. Because if we make the mistake of identifying the problem as being the headache, then we could simply take a pain killer, and the problem is solved, right?. But is it?
When you take a pain killer, it may well get rid of the symptom. In the short term that’s not a problem. We’ve all wanted to get rid of a pain and used something fast and effective to do that. But the ingested drug doesn’t just go to the area of pain, it is distributed systemically, and can have side effects. Ignoring or covering up signals that the body is making long term, taking too much of a drug, can negatively affect other organs, such as the liver or the stomach.
A more powerful approach is to seek to prevent the headache from ever starting in the first place. For that we must dig deeper and ask the question “Why am I having headaches? Seek to understand why”. Some causes are obvious, but what if it’s coming from something we’re totally unaware of? By looking underneath the symptom, understanding that it’s the result of a process (daily habits, choices, decisions), we can then expand our options to be able to explore, identify and focus on what the real problem is. Such as for example, a regular food we eat. Systematic Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify what’s beneficial to your body and what’s not.
Systematic Kinesiology helps identify the problem that IS.
Health care is in crisis. There are LOTS of problems – Obesity is the problem, Cancer is the problem, Heart Disease is the problem, Diabetes is the problem. And by continuing to focus on the disease as being “the problem” we will never, ever make progress. Because disease is the problem that ISN’T.
The problems are more likely to be found coming from a person’s lifestyle. It’s so often not even noticeable. But what we do on a consistent daily basis has an accumulative effect. That’s both a good and a bad thing. Overdo it for while and it has a way of eventually catching up on us! Start looking after ourselves and it’ll pay off. The results, whether they be ones we want or don’t want, come from of the daily decisions and moment by moment choices we make about what to eat, how to move and what to focus on. These actions, more than anything, will determines how I, you, we predominantly feel each day. How motivated, how happy, how good we feel.
In the majority of cases “Health problems = lifestyle problems”. There are always exceptions of course. But by looking for clues in the things we do every day, often without thinking because they are habits, we open ourselves to finding solutions in there. Obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes are all preventable diseases. Each year more than 10 million people worldwide are diagnosed to cancer. We know that we should be eating more vegetables and taking more exercise. Those two things alone will go a long way to preventing something that a lot of people fear they’ll get (because of their genes – which only accounts for 5-10% of all cancer cases), but genes are not our fate. *
However, people are struggling, are stressed and overwhelmed with modern day living. We’re being influenced and marketed to with lots of different, confusing messages, surrounded by fears, stress, “noise” and distractions, that we’re often so exhausted it seems easier to take the easier choice. But if we can take a moment to reflect on where we’re at, get the help of a Systematic Kinesiology professional who has another perspective.
It is said that to truly heal, the patient must have faith, confidence and belief in both the practitioner and in the modality/therapy. For healing to take place, the practitioner is a vital part of the process. It’s a case of, you can’t do it alone. Instinctively we have a sense when something is wrong. But it can seem confusing because of the often conflicting messages about what’s healthy and what’s not.
But your body holds the key to its own health, to optimal health. What Systematic Kinesiology offers is a powerful tool to finding the root causes, and unlocking the answers to what the body needs to create the right environment to self-heal. The body already knows how to heal – if you cut yourself you don’t have to instruct the body to go fix it. It knows.
So I’ll say it again – Systematic Kinesiology helps identify the problem that IS.
Which may be different to someone else who has a similar symptom.
Everyone is different.
Systematic Kinesiology respects that.
Systematic Kinesiology is an integrated holistic approach to working with individuals who seek to better understand how their body works. They want to feel empowered to know what to do to be healthy, and how to live a long, vibrant and healthy life. Practitioners are trained in using muscle testing as a communication tool that reveals imbalances (problems) as well as solutions. Session are tailored to each client. Systematic Kinesiology is truly individualised healthcare.
“The most accurate diagnosing tool you can have
is in your office — YOUR PATIENT — with innate intelligence the body language
combined with muscle testing.” — Dr. George J. Goodheart, Jr.
