Ultimate Healing Through Nutrition

What techniques do you use?
Initially I do a computerized and a personalized evaluation of a questionnaire and food journal you fill out before your first appointment. During our sessions I use muscle testing (a.k.a. applied kinesiology), and Body Points (a system of searching out sore pressure points in the body) to find out where your body is weak and needs temporary nutritional support to heal. I also offer optional ionic footbaths.

Ionic footbathHow long will the first visit take?
The first visit will take at least 1.5 hours depending on your needs. I like to leave extra time to go more in depth if necessary. Your first visit includes an ionic footbath to help your system begin to detoxify.

When will I feel better?
Depending on your body’s condition, you could begin to feel better in a matter of days if you follow recommendations, such as eliminating food we discover to be allergic from your diet. But your health is your responsibility! I can share information and facilitate the process of rebalancing and healing your body but it’s up to you to take care of it every day and allow that process to take place. Whole food supplementation will help, and eventually when your body is healthy again you may no longer need “pills”.

Will I lose weight?
The goal here is to balance your body so it can heal itself. When you change your diet to a healthier one, weight loss is inevitable as your system recalibrates and eliminates stored waste. If you continue to put junk into your body, then you’re going to have a junk body. But if you change your habits and your body wants to lose weight to reach a healthy equilibrium, then that’s what will happen.

Why look into nutritional therapy as a complement to regular Western medicine?
Conventionally-trained western medical doctors don’t typically focus on their clients’ nutritional needs. Oftentimes food allergies or sensitivities, or poor nutrition, are the basis for the client’s entire problem! I don’t offer pills to cover up clients’ symptoms; I help to balance the body which eliminates the need for pills.

Muscle testing a clientWhat is muscle testing and what can it discover?
Muscle testing (or applied kinesiology) is a noninvasive way of evaluating the body’s imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages, the functioning of the organs, nutritional deficiencies, and food sensitivities, among other things. It can also be used to test the body’s responses to herbs and other remedies. I muscle test you lying down with your arm straight in the air by attempting to push it to a horizontal position. It sounds strange, but it works, and it’s the basis for what I do.

You’re really just pushing my arm down harder sometimes and not at other times, right?
No, I’m not. That would be a total waste of our time. It just feels like that at first until you get used to listening to what your body has to say. But you’re definitely not the first person to ask that!
