As some of you may know, I get annoyed when I see a so-called healer placing a bottle on someone’s chest and claiming that they need to take this supplement because a vague muscle test proved it. (see: http://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/the-correct-way-to-do-nutritional-evaluation-by-muscle-testing-in-applied-kinesiology/ )
Well I also get annoyed when I see these same people testing a muscle and immediately claiming that there is an organic problem with the organ associated. This is a grave disservice as the so-called healer has not taken a medical history, nor do they have the diagnostic skills to evaluate either a musclo-skeletal problem or an organic problem.
And it annoyed me greatly when these people call themselves Applied Kinesiologists.
The practice of Applied Kinesiology as defined by the International College of Applied Kinesiology (http://www.icak.com) is used in combination with standard diagnostic tests such as orthopedic & neurological testing, physical examination and blood tests that are taught to M.D’s, D.C’s, DDS’s and D.O.’s; in fact these degrees are a requirement to take the certified post-graduate training in Applied Kinesiology.
And that being said, I’d like to present you with an interesting article by a doctor of chiropractic (D.C.), who though not an AK’er, talks about the process of diagnosis when faced w/ a weak muscle and sensitive neuro-lymphatic points. http://www.dynamicchiropractic.com/mpacms/dc/article.php?id=43497
