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.

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: You may recognize him as the blue Wiggle who entertains your children, but he is also one of many who have experienced the amazing powers of the chiropractic adjustment. Anthony Field was about to give up his time with the Wiggles because his chronic pain was so severe. Once he found Chiropractic, his life was restored and is now a spokesperson for Chiropractic.

In today’s world would you want to be normal or average? Sounds good when compared to abnormal or below average but what is average or normal today?...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: It is not always easy to quantify what normal is and it leaves people wondering if they are in fact normal themselves. Dr. Buckley describes some "normal" American eating and exercise habits that actually have a negative impact on health and leave you realizing you do not want to be normal! Proper nutrition, exercise and regular chiropractic care can help you to live a better and longer life. Do not settle for just being a normal American!

While all doctors ultimately want what is best for their patients sometimes the concept of collaboration isn’t always considered.  Historically chiropractors and dentists would each help treat jaw or TMJ related pain or disorders (TMD) on an individual basis helping patients as best as possible.  However new research has been showing some fascinating relationships between how the body functions from a postural standpoint and how the jaw can respond to posture or affect it.


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Do you ever wonder why your TMJ is in chronic pain or why your partner snores? Did you know that poor posture can impact your teeth and a poor bite can negatively impact your posture? Having a comprehensive team of health care providers such as chiropractors and dentist may be the solution for you. A holistic approach to your health will help you live a happier, healthier life that is free from pain and discomfort.

I had growing pains when I was a kid - bad enough that I would head to my parent's bedroom at night as ask them to beat on my legs hard enough to block the pain. Sure I was "growing" but I wasn't having pain for that reason...

1. The Major Premise - A Universal Intelligence Is In All Matter And Continually Gives To It All Its Properties And Actions, Thus Maintaining It In Existence...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth M. Wisniewski: In 1927 Ralph W Stephenson published a book called The ‘Chiropractic Text Book’ and these 33 chiropractic principles came out of it. These are described from the most general, the major premise, and become increasingly more specific. They are a series of concepts and deductions that are vital to understanding chiropractic from a philosophical and scientific view.



by B.J. Palmer DC

We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the prisoned impulses, a tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them to life. We deal with the magic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinB.J. Palmerking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air.


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: This is a poem by the developer of chiropractic, B.J. Palmer.


"Life is but the expression of spirit through matter. To make life manifest requires the union of spirit and body,"

~Daniel David Palmer, DC Discoverer of chiropractic 1895




“INNATE is GOD in human beings. INNATE is good in human beings. INNATE cannot be cheated, violated or tricked. INNATE is always waiting, ready to communicate with you, and when INNATE is in contact you are in tune with the Infinite.”



~B.J. Palmer

Substance and behavior abuse have reached epidemic proportions in our country. This coupled with the emotional repression and stress associated with living in our outside-in, consumer culture has produced America’s number 1 health challenge: Addiction.



Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: The American Medical Association recognizes that there must be a mind-body-spirit approach to treating addiction however often the "body" part is lost. Chiropractic adjustments restore the nerve flow so that signals from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain are transmitting without interference. Dr. Herby Bell is blazing a new trail in addiction recovery by creating an integrative, mind-body, vitalistic program that addresses all three areas of the mind-body-spirit connection to insure a successful recovery process.

Applied kinesiology is a system of diagnosis that utilizes the manual muscle testing response as a reflection of the status of the anterior horn motor neuron pool of the muscle being tested. The fundamental objective of this new system of diagnosis is the evaluation and correction of nervous system irritation through the application of "natural therapies" designed to remove noxious irritants and restore normal neurological expression, thereby aiding in the promotion of health and the prevention of disease.


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Dr. Bruce Lipton, renowned Cellular Biologist, describes how your DNA is simply a blueprint and not the sole determinant for your health. Your body is not just a machine; there is a "driver" as well - your innate.



by Dr. Jeffrey Tucker, DC,

Your core is your center of gravity, located around your trunk and pelvis, and having a strong core is vital to good posture, muscle control, injury prevention, maximum athletic performance and even basic activities of daily living. There are a variety of ways to work the core muscles, and these days, it’s not always necessary to use free weights or weight machines. Body weight, foam rolls, stability balls, bands, tubing and medicine balls are tools that can be used at home, on your own, to create a solid foundation for developing dynamic strength in your torso, shoulders, arms and legs. Here are three key core exercises you can perform daily at home on your own...
