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.

The headaches are often aggravated by sustained neck positions or postures. I did an interview with Dr. Jeurhing who is a Professor at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa on the topic of neck related headaches.

If you are a gym-goer, does that mean you are immune from illness and injuries? If you asked me this question even three years ago, I would say – YES! Exercise is the best thing you can do for yourself...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro:  Are you getting the most out of your exercise? You may be living with something that is preventing you from fully reaping the benefits of your hard work. If the problem is corrected, you may notice faster recovery times, improved endurance and strength, and a stronger immune system.

I just completed ten days. It wasn't easy. The first day and a half, I was looking around for loopholes and ways to cheat. I'd see a guy on his iphone and glare at him jealously wondering why he can be on his and I can't. Yes, even though I imposed this "cleanse"...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: In addition to making adjustments to the spine, Doctors of Chiropractic often function as lifestyle and wellness coaches. An important lifestyle choice you can make is to go on a technology detox. This allows you to connect better with the people around you and improve your overall quality of life. In order to hold an adjustment you must detoxify your mind and body. This is an important part of living a chiropractic lifestyle.

Everyday foods like bacon, eggs, coffee and dairy products are linked to inflammation. That might not sound like a big deal but when you consider that most chronic conditions like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and obesity have been linked to inflammation. Low grade inflammation is a factor in most health issues.  And if you suffer a pain disorder, you better believe that inflammatory foods will aggravate the condition.

 

Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Most chronic diseases and pain are a result of low grade inflammation in the body. This article from Care2, lists the top 12 foods that cause inflammation. Eliminating these foods will reduce systemic inflammation and decrease the pain associated with an inflammatory lifestyle. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet along with regular chiropractic care will reduce your chronic pain and enhance your quality of life!

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.
