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.

Choosing your career should be more than taking standardized examination and picking something that will get you by but never truly inspire you. I believe the universe chooses those who are healers and this is not something that can be completely learned in a lecture hall or reading a book. It is innately inside of certain people and recognizing that calling and taking action when called is one of the most important decisions a person can make. I do not come from a chiropractic family and when asked how I got into this profession my story does not have a simple answer...

This "disease" most commonly occurs in boys aged 10-18, though girls can have it too. It occurs when the area where the patella (knee) tendon attaches to the tibia (lower leg) bone is under too much stress and becomes inflamed or it pulls so hard on the insertion at the bone that it actually ruptures. This pain, as common as it is especially during a child's growth spurt, is very unnecessary...

Halloween embodies those things that scare us most—creepy characters, dark corners and the unknown—but what we should be most scared of is something that many of us happily embrace: Halloween candy. We are embarking on that time of year where one food-saturated holiday bleeds into another, and to kick them all off, we have Halloween, which promises an excess of sugar-heavy treats that contain a plethora of ingredients you really don’t want to put into your body...

 

Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Trick or treat? Most candy is actually tricking you. Toxic chemicals and dyes are hiding inside of it. Keep your children safe this Halloween and get educated on the dangerous ingredients in your candy.
