Healthy nutrition and detox often needs more than a healthy diet and naturopathic supplements. Many people are severely dehydrated and deficient in essential minerals without realising it. Even if you are taking minerals or other supplements and drinking enough water these will not be fully effective if your body can’t assimilate nutrients and water and eliminate toxins efficiently. This happens if critical organs are stressed and energy depleted by traumatic events in our lives or by the flight, fright, freeze survival response. This is where Kinesiology can help.
Kinergetics can test for and correct some of the energy imbalances caused by:
- adrenaline overload present in the flight-fight response
- magnesium, calcium or zinc deficiency
- copper or fluoride toxicity
- heavy metal toxicity – mercury, lead, cadmium
- kidney stress
- TMJ-jaw stresses
Many cases of arthritis, chronic pain, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia respond positively to these balances.
The Magnesium story
Magnesium is the most important mineral for the nervous system and dramatically changes the muscle tests of clients with arthritis, chronic fatigue, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Magnesium relaxes the muscles and the central nervous system. If insufficient magnesium is available calcium is not assimilated properly and may cause excess calcium deposits around the tendons and joints in arthritis or in the muscles in fibromyalgia. Magnesium and zinc are also both critical for good digestion.
Common causes of magnesium deficiency include:
- excess intake of alcohol, caffeine, dairy, sugar and processed foods
- limited intake of leafy green vegetable and fresh fruit
- fluoridated water
- calcium excess
- mercury amalgam dental fillings
- jaw muscle/TMJ stress
- unresolved trauma
Zinc is the most important mineral for the immune system. For the body to get the maximum benefit of medical or naturopathic treatment for immune system problems like allergies and virus infections the body’s flight-fright survival response needs to be resolved. If it isn’t then the flight-fight response and its associated TMJ-jaw stress cause Adrenal/Kidney stress which in turn affects the elimination of copper, fluoride and other toxins which will impede the assimilation of other minerals.
Kinergetics can identify and help remove energetic blocks to healthy nutrition.
