Kinesiology muscle energy testing is a standard protocol that I perform for every client. The purpose of this protocol is to determine sensitivity to specific foods, supplements, and drugs. In addition, I often energy test for any reactivity of the immune system to various substances in the environment.
After energy testing, I use GDV devices to measure energy reserve in each organ and system of the body. GDV scan helps to confirms the results of energy testing and allows to paint a complete picture of client’s physical and emotional state.
Not surprisingly, 95% of my clients have problems with thyroid or adrenals. About 80% of them have drug reactivity – when a body rejects a prescription drug, and over 95% are reacting to bread (gluten) and/or dairy.
Triple Warmer is the energy system that governs our fight and flight response. It is responsible for keeping our body safe and protecting it from external invaders, such as viruses and bacteria. Quite often Triple Warmer overreacts to harmless food and substances because they are not recognized by the body as “friendly substances”. This constant state of reactivity creates grounds for developing an autoimmune illness.
I have to say that this situation was not as bad 15 years ago, when I just started my practice. In today’s toxic world thyroid and adrenal disorders have reached epidemic proportions. In order to reverse autoimmune conditions we must understand why our body is attaching itself.
What is Autoimmunity?
When the body attacks itself and causes organ and tissue damage, scientists call this disorder autoimmunity. People can go a lifetime with the earliest symptoms of autoimmunity, which can include weight gain, brain fog, joint pain, gut problems, depression, mood disorders, and fatigue.
Because these symptoms are unnoticed by the conventional medical community, people never receive a diagnosis of a disease. Instead, they are told by doctors, family members and friends that “you are fine, it’s just stress…” or “it’s all in your head”, even though their inner voice may be telling them that something’s wrong.
The doctors who evaluate these people do not have bad intentions, but because “nothing” shows up as a red flag on a blood test, they might have received generic advice, like “lose weight,” “get more rest,” “eat better,” or “reduce your stress.” Or worse, they might walk out of the doctor’s office with a prescription for anti-anxiety medications to help them “calm down”. Eventually they arrive to integrative practitioners like me, who have to figure out the real causes and get to the bottom of their dysfunction.
It’s no wonder they show up at my office hopeless as they conditions worsen and confused about what could possibly be wrong with their health. After all, their doctors said they are healthy. Can they be wrong?
In this post I’d like to share with you that illness doesn’t occur suddenly.You don’t wake up with Alzheimer’s disease one day – it’s a decades-long process with many steps of progression over the years. You don’t wake up with diabetes either – it develops slowly over time.
Scientists now know that for autoimmune diseases, including diabetes and Alzheimer’s, the process starts as early as your twenties or thirties, with multiple steps of declining health along the way. In the case of Alzheimer’s, it might begin with brain fog, then forgetfulness, confusion, memory loss, and, eventually, dementia. For diabetes, the scale might begin with food cravings, then blood sugar imbalances (hypoglycemia), next metabolic syndrome with weight gain, then followed by numbness and tingling that come and go, and finally a diagnosis of diabetes with a high risk of heart disease.
The problem with this situation is that a diagnosis of illness happens only after there is significant damage is done to the body. In this case the solution is a lifetime of medications and a constant battle to reverse disease.
While science has been making clear advances in the treatment of many illnesses, wouldn’t you like to know, sooner rather than later, if autoimmunity is causing your symptoms?
What’s in it for you?
If you have occasional headaches, stomach cramps, constipation, bloating, or acne, and if you’re fatigued even though you’re drinking coffee all day, I’m here to tell you that it’s not normal. These irritating symptoms are a message from your body saying “something’s not right” and you need to pay attention before it’s too late. Many of my clients often say: “I wish I knew about this 10 years ago…”.
The good news is that your body is forgiving and you can make changes in your lifestyle that will begin to transform your life and your health.
There are two major reasons why you are feeling forgetful, sick, overweight, or tired – toxicity and constant inflammation. But addressing these symptoms alone will not work. You need to find out what’s causing this inflammation in your body.
What I am seeing while working with my clients is that most dairy products (especially conventional pasteurised milk and yogurt), sugar, and bread (gluten content in wheat, barley and rye) are the most common triggers that fuel the inflammation and lead to autoimmunity. Published research confirms this as well. There are others, but the functional medicine considers those to be “the big three”.
Toxic chemicals and heavy metals found in our environment, such the lead and mercury, are also contributors to the autoimmune illnesses. Reducing inflammation is the primary reason why scientists, researchers, and doctors share so many successful case studies in medical journals, and why you may have heard amazing testimonials about reversing psoriasis, lupus, ADHD, acne, depression, tumors, and rheumatoid arthritis.
In my office I tell my clients to remove all pro-inflammatory foods that cause their body to overreact and create inflammation. Once these foods and toxic medications that contribute to the immune system’s response are removed, their symptoms disappear, their energy returns to normal, their memory improves, and they sleep better. This improvement can be noticed within 2 weeks of removing the pro-inflammatory foods. This dietary alteration is supported with energy work I offer in my office, such as LED Light Therapy, Eden Energy Medicine, and more.
