What is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology (AK) can be defined as the clinical application of the study of movement and function; it is functional neurology.

AK is a system of testing and treatment that is used to assess the body’s functional aberrations.

These functional aberrations may be but not limited to:

    •   Muscular
    • Neurological
    • Vascular
    • Osseous
    • Lymphatic
    • Respiratory
    • Digestive
    • Endocrine
    • Imbalance in the Chinese Meridian systems
  •  

  Therapies to induce or restore individual normal function include but not limited to:

    • Chiropractic adjustive therapy
    • Cranial techniques
    • Therapeutic massage modalities
    • Reflex therapies
    • Acupuncture therapies
    • Exercise & stretches
    • Nutritional supplementation
    • Emotional support or modalities
  • Lifestyle changes

With the aim of decreasing cumulative noxious stimuli below threshold and allowing the body to heal itself. 

AK does not replace standard examination procedures such as neurological and orthopedic testing, blood laboratory work or X-rays but rather it is another examination tool at the doctor’s disposal. 

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a continually evolving system that provides the doctor with the skills and knowledge to purposefully, systematically and logically ascertain the optimal treatment of the patient. AK embraces the work of all individuals and disciplines who endeavor to diminish the suffering of humanity.

AK attempts to unify such diverse knowledge and techniques into a usable scientific system for one purpose: To bring patients to a higher level of health and help them to actualize their potential.(Thanks to Dr. Charles for the use of his definition.)

Applied Kinesiology Is Not:

Testing nutritional needs by holding bottles in your hand or placing pills on the skin.

Touch for health or any other forms of evaluation using muscle testing as a simple yes-no answer system.

Testing using mental telepathy.

A simplistic cookie cutter approach to treatment.

Standard Blood Tests Shows Applied KinesiologyTesting for Food Allergies/Sensitivities Works

Here is a research paper  http://www.theuplink.com/Papers1/Correlation%20of%20AK%20Mucscle%20testing%20paper.pdf from the International Journal of Neuroscience correlating Applied Kinesiology  manual muscle testing for food allergies and sensitivities with serum immunoglobulin tests for food allergies and sensitivities.

In other words, the results of an AK testing for food allergies and sensitivities were proven correct by standard blood tests.

A NYC Chiropractor’s Thoughts on “Not So Real” Food

Today in the NYTimes: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/03/weekinreview/03harris.html?_r=2 which talks about taste tests done on foods that don’t contains artificial colors/dyes.

“Without the artificial coloring FD&C Yellow No. 6, Cheetos Crunchy Cheese Flavored Snacks would look like the shriveled larvae of a large insect. Not surprisingly, in taste tests, people derived little pleasure from eating them.”

And I’m thinking to myself as I read ” What about using natural colorings”  and there at the bottom of the article was

“As yet, natural colorings have not proven to be a good alternative. They are generally not as bright, cheap or stable as artificial colorings, which can remain vibrant for years. Natural colorings often fade within days.”

And I have to think how wrong it is to eat a so called food that will be vibrant for years. After all we know that as soon as you pick a fruit,  for example, that it starts to lose nutrients. So what nutrients might be left after years??

Ok, you say but I want some potato chips! Ok how about doing what Michael Pollan suggests; make them yourself. I’d make mine w/ new potatoes and olive oil. The coloring would be natural, some nutrients from the potato and olive oil and no fading because I’d eat it all up.

Let me know what you think!
