All Things Healing has editors that provide useful information about applied kinesiology chiropractics. Spiritual & Healing Practices: Chiropractic & Applied Kinesiology - Beyond conventional healing methods, there are different healing practices that chiropractors use to treat diseases. The Applied Kinesiology chiropractic method is of the various techniques chiropractors use in diagnosing health problems, especially those related to the muscles. Since chiropractors mainly focus on the musculoskeletal system, the treatments associated with it also deal with muscular issues. Chiropractic applied kinesiology, for one, involves manual muscle testing to evaluate the functional status of the body. Here, the three aspects of health are observed: the structural, chemical and mental. The applied kinesiology chiropractic technique is based on the premise that every organ dysfunction is related to a weakness in a specific corresponding muscle. When you visit your chiropractor and undergo chiropractic applied kinesiology method, your chiropractor will apply force to each target muscle or muscle group, and you’ll be asked to resist that force, during which the response of your muscles will be evaluated. An absence of smooth response usually means there is a problem or imbalance in the body. Such imbalance in the body is corrected using manual pressure on the specific muscle. Other kinds of treatments may also be employed alongside it such as joint manipulation and mobilization, clinical nutrition, dietary counseling and myofascial, cranial and meridian therapies. A generous amount of chiropractic information states that applied kinesiology is used as an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to healthcare. In fact, chiropractors are not the only ones who employ such healing practice; other professionals such as naturopaths, medical doctors, dentists, nutritionists, physical therapists, massage therapists, and nurse practitioners use it too. According to chiropractic news, applied kinesiology is also based on the philosophies of other holistic therapies, such as osteopathy, meridian therapy, and physical manipulation.

It’s that time of the year. The leaves are turning, the air is chilling, and cider fills our fridges. This is a beautiful time of the year, but unfortunately, it also means that many people are becoming ill with the Flu. Not only that, your local pharmacies, MD’s, and grocery stores are blasting you with “GET THE FLU SHOT!” Do you really want to know what the Flu is and what you can do to protect yourself from it? Here are a few steps, some of which are obvious...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Do you get the flu shot each year to prevent the dreaded flu? Do you do anything else besides getting the shot to prevent it? This year, take Dr. Nick Marini’s advice and follow these eight steps, which includes not getting the flu shot.

It’s that time of the season where we are conditioned by society to accept our poor health as something being external to us rather than observe our behavior and lifestyle choices.

People always have the excuse that it’s the time of year when they often get sick. Where does this come from? Do germs suddenly emerge out of the ground in the fall? Are we around more sick people? Is it the cold weather?...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Why do people tend to get sick during certain times of the year? In this article Dr. Karo Isajan discusses some of the real causes behind the "flu season" and how you can stay healthy year round.

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Why are we so sick? Dr. James Chestnut explains that we are quick to tell our children not to feed something "bad" to the family dog but then allow the child to eat it instead. This does not make sense! This outside-in approach to health care through drugs and surgery is not making us more healthy rather we must use proper nutrition, exercise and chiropractic care so that the intelligence of the body is able to self heal and self regulate the way it is meant to. When we take medications we are essentially saying that the drugs are more intelligent than the body. Changing this thought process will allow us to break free from the current sick care model into a new, true health care model.

As our modern-day culture bows to the alter of science looking for salvation through its supposed technological advancements and ever-present mantra of “we need more studies,” there seem to be a relative few who embrace the great “mother of science” – philosophy.  Nowhere is this lack potentially more damaging than in the world of chiropractic.  As chiropractic was developed in its early years, it was defined and established as a triad consisting of an art, a science, and a philosophy...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: In this article, Intern Justin Brame, describes the philosophy of chiropractic. He also discusses the need for a paradigm shift in order for TRUE health care to emerge. Consumers are growing more aware and suspect of products and medications and are waking up to the reality that outside-in approaches are not health care...they are a form of sick care. Chiropractic is a safe and extremely effective approach to health and wellness. It allows for inside-out healing without the use of drugs and surgery.

If it were not for the powerful transformation that I experienced in every aspect of my life as a result of my exposure to Chiropractic and the philosophy of life it embodies, I would not be writing these words. Chiropractic changed my connection to my body and the way that I honor, respect and care for it...


Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Health is our birth right and comes from the inside out. It is run by an inborn intelligence, called innate. In this article Dr. Arno Burnier describes the powerful transformation that can occur when a vitalistic philosophy is observed and practiced.

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Innate intelligence is perfect and working at 100%. It is the body that does not always allow for this full expression of innate, when there is a blockage in the nervous system, innate cannot function optimally. Chiropractors remove the interference to the nervous system thus allowing for the fullest expression of life...

by Dr. Stephen Gangemi

An expert panel declared last month that obesity is the “single greatest threat to public health in this century”. Two-thirds of adults and one-third of all kids are overweight or obese. They advise more exercise, cutting sugar, and following a more nutrient-rich, plant-based diet. Some of their advice is good, some not. Their emphasis to eat more vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and beans is advice to follow, but adding more whole grains, seafood, and fat-free/low-fat dairy is not.

Sometimes, a back problem may really be a front problem.

On the front of every human body within the digestive tract lies the ileocecal valve. Let’s call it ICV for short. This little valve is what separates the small intestine from the large intestine. Its function is to prevent food in the large intestine (meant for evacuation) from refluxing back into the small intestine...
