Food Intolerance testing has become popular over recent years. And with so many people suffering from chronic diseases it’s no wonder. Thankfully General Practice medicine has become more knowledgeable about food intolerances and sensitivities in recent years, unlike 25 years ago when it was not even recognised or appreciated as a viable health issue.
However, it was 25 years ago when Anna identified her food intolerances with kinesiology. She knows all too well that identifying them and eliminating culprit foods is crucial if we expect to have a marked impact on our health and wellbeing. But it is not just identifying and eliminating the culprit foods that will lead to our recovery. We must also identify and heal the compromised systems that triggered our food intolerance in the first instance.
Certainly, one man’s meat is frequently another man’s poison. Meaning, what suits one person will almost certainly not be suitable for another. Biochemical individuality is a beautiful thing, and a fact. Each person has substantially different nutritional needs, it is therefore imperative that this is taken into account when designing a food programme for healing as well as long term health.
Anna is a trained Biotype practitioner. She is able to recognise the style of eating most suited to your body frame, and height. This is called your individual Biotype.
Anna draws upon this skill-set in conjunction with the results from your kinesiology Food Intolerance testing when re-designing your food diary.
Once your food intolerances are then resolved through nutritional therapy, you will receive a hand-out of your Biotype, so that you can continue with your Biotype’s natural way of eating. This will help to prevent food intolerances from developing again, in the future.
And for those who would like to take an even deeper dive into individualised biochemically related food requirements, which is especially recommended when long-term illness and complex health conditions are presenting, comprehensive Nutrigenomic screening is also optional.
KINESIOLOGY FOR FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING
This is Anna’s preferred route in the detection of offending culprit foods. However, not all muscle testing for Food Intolerance screening is the same.
The apparent simplicity of using the basic muscle testing procedures of Kinesiology has led many practitioners, especially ‘Applied’ Kinesiologists to use ‘one leaver muscle testing’ for ‘Allergy Testing’.
One lever muscle testing usually relies heavily on one lever only, the Deltoid – the muscle which links to the lung and which also has no connection to the stomach or G.I tract what so ever. When visiting an Allergy Clinic or testing foods and substances with one lever testing, it is not unusual for people to leave having been told they are allergic to practically everything they currently eat. This can be very distressing. Furthermore, it is not possible to detect whether a client has an actual ‘allergy’ to ‘a food’ or ‘a product’ simply from muscle testing alone.
Therefore, Anna likes to make it really clear that her sessions are not ‘Allergy Testing’ per se. But rather, she seeks to identify imbalances within the whole body system as it relates to food. It could be better viewed as a Food & Product Interfacing session.
Systematic Kinesiology levels 1-4
Anna trained in Systematic Kinesiology levels 1-4, which permits a whole-body approach and style of testing when testing her client’s for food tolerance and sensitivities.
Systematic kinesiology uses all four leavers of the body (2 x arms / 2 x legs) and even a fifth lever – the head, rather than one leaver. Moving the leavers in various directions isolates a specific muscle prior to testing the isolated muscle for integral strength. Each isolated muscle links into a specific organ or biological system correlating to that leaver.
Systematic kinesiology is accepted science, and can therefore be used as a viable assessment tool to understand the health of the body.
When a client chooses to engage in Nutritional Therapy with Anna, they will start with a Nutritional Consultation rather than starting with a Food Tolerance testing session. During which Anna relies on Systematic Kinesiology to also provide accurate supplement recommendations, prior to using the same method for the Food Tolerance testing. This is helpful as the first session helps to identify the client’s key imbalances within each biological system.
When a client is seeking health, rather than just information on which foods they can / cannot tolerate Anna will always recommend the Nutritional Consultation Package, which includes Food Intolerance testing as the second session.
All substances can be tested; food, liquids, toxicity triggers such as cat fur, mould, heavy metals, homoeopathic nosodes of every variety
Nutrition is a complex subject.
