Clinical Kinesiologist in Ilford, Essex

What is clinical kinesiology?

Kinesiology originated in the USA in 1965 when Dr George Goodhart, a chiropractor, discovered the link between muscle testing and the condition of the body.

Since that time it has evolved into different forms of kinesiology. Dr Alan Beardall was the initiator of this particular type. It was further developed by Richard Holding to whom I am deeply indebted.

This system of kinesiology focuses on the relationship between the biochemical processes of the body – in particular biochemical pathways. it is possible to diagnose the biochemical cause of physical or emotional problems. This method treats the cause of a problem and not just symptoms. Each person is treated as an individual as we are all biochemically different.

During a treatment it is quite common for the emotions to surface. It is understood that disease often manifests in the mind and emotions as thoughts and feeling. Flower remedies are used to help the individual at this time and is all part of the session.

Very often during a session an individual will require structural treatment. The body is asking to be realigned and balanced. This again is all part of the treatment should it be required.

We will also look at the working of biochemical pathways in your body. Depending on the complaint, it could be that there is a problem with female or male hormones for example.

For instance, if testosterone is low, it could be a problem with the liver and that would need rectifying to allow the testosterone to resume a normal level.

Oestrogen metabolism will be checked if there is a female hormonal imbalance along with all the major female hormones.

Elevated homocysteine levels can be the cause of problems with people who have long standing health problems such as cardiovascular disease.

The citric acid cycle or krebs cycle can be looked at for imbalances.

Metabolic pathways of insulin and glucose can be checked,as can glutathione physiology and cysteine physiology.

A kinesiology treatment

The treatment is by muscle testing. The patient lays on a couch fully clothed whilst the kinesiologist applies slight pressure to the patient’s extended arm. At the same time the patient applies a slight resistance. The muscle will test strong but will go weak when exposed to a toxin such as artificial sweeteners.

Using this bionetic response, it is possible to to find allergies and toxicity. The patient will be tested for fungus, virus, bacteria, toxic metals, radiation, chemicals, parasites, hydrocarbons and food allergies.

The treatment will also assess and correct nutritional imbalances. If a patient is deficient in a certain vitamin or mineral it can be detected. The precise dosage can then be ascertained for that person.

About me

After spending 32 years doing mathematics, I studied what has always fascinated me most – the human body. For the last 35 years I have trained in Britain, America and Europe and I am still learning!

I feel very privileged to be able to help so many people overcome their health issues and, I thoroughly enjoy my work.

As a fully qualified clinical kinesiologist, continuing professional development is very important to me and so I regularly attend training courses. Here is a list of my qualifications.
