Muscle testing with Wholistic Kinesiology uses direct feedback from your body to receive information about how your system is functioning. This feedback can then guide us as to which modalities (nutrition, bodywork, emotional work, energy changes, or biochemical interactions) can be used to regain health. Over and over, we can ask your body specific questions to determine which foods, nutrients, and therapies are preferable for optimizing your health. Or put another way, muscle testing is a tool that allows us to speak directly to your body in the present moment.
To differentiate further, muscle testing is a neurological test for evaluation the body's electromagnetic potentials. When we do muscle testing, we engage with the central nervous system (CNS), which is your electrical system that has positive and negative flows. Your CNS creates an electromagnetic field around it (very measurable) and can be shorted out just like our electrical systems in our homes. In other words, your body's CNS has a "Yes or No" knowing. We harness this inner knowing of the nervous system to discern the best health path forward.
In Oriental Medicine, systems of flow of electrical energy are called meridians. In kinesiology, we make great use of the meridian flow pathways in the body. The eastern medical practitioners have paved the way for us by mapping out electrical highways in the body. If electrical energy is not flowing properly to an organ, muscle, or joint we can detect this imbalance through testing the nervous system. This system of diagnosis may sound simplistic, but it is very profound and valuable.
With Wholistic Kinesiology and Wholistic Methylation we combine the use of muscle testing with genetic based nutrition protocols. We gather information about what's happening at the deeper levels, within the cells, to discern how you're manifesting your genetic blueprint, what toxins you might be exposed to, and which genetic SNP's might be distraction you from achieving health.
The recent advances in genetic research have finally reached a point where we can begin to look at the specific genes and what their functions are. With the completion of the Human Genome Project, research is mounting as studies are being conducted and assertions being made as to the relevance of genetic variants to disease causation. One such area of research has lead to a major breakthrough in our understanding of the origins of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and much more. This connection between our genetic variants or SNP's (single nucleotide polymorphisms) and disease has revealed the importance of a metabolic pathway (MTHFR) in the body that is critical to maintaining health through the methylation cycle. The methylation cycle, it turns out, is involved in many regulatory processes, and genetic variants herein can be particularly damaging. The good news is that we now have ways to bypass these defects with specific targeted nutrients and restore normal functioning to the body.
Methylation is the process of a transfer of methyl groups (one carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms) onto amino acids, proteins, enzymes, and DNA in every cell and tissue of the body to regulate health, cell energy, genetic expression of DNA, neurological function, liver detoxification, immunity etc. This process is one of the most essential metabolic functions of the body and is catalyzed by a variety of enzymes. The methylation process is responsive to environmental conditions and degrades with age, a process associated with a large variety of age-related disorders. Thus, with respect to the effect of methylation, it is a continuous struggle in life to adapt to the very changing environment. Health and quality of life are highly dependent on the methylation process.
This is a new and emerging science but one that holds great promise in the natural healthcare realm. The results being seen in the preliminary states of protocol development are astounding. Understanding the cycle does take some time and study, but for healthcare professionals and patients alike the rewards are tremendous. Prevention of those conditions that we consider "inherited" or chronic are now well within our grasp.
METHYLATION IS CRITICAL TO THE FOLLOWING:
-Repairing and building RNA and DNA
-Immune function (how your body responds to and fights infection)
-Neurotransmitter balancing (mood stabilization)
-Toxic metal detoxification
-Cell membrane fluidity and function
...and much more!
