NUTRITION & FOOD TESTING
Nutrition & Food Testing
Poor nutrition is a major factor of many health problems. Your body needs a good supply of a range of nutrients such as proteins, certain types of fats (essential fatty acids), vitamins and minerals. Because of today’s unnatural farming methods and many people’s tendency to eat processed and microwaved foods, most people in the UK are deficient in certain nutrients, sometimes quite severely.
Everybody is different and foods that are beneficial for one person will not necessarily work well for someone else and could even be harmful for them. So how can you find out which foods are best for you personally? Kinesiology is an effective and accurate method of testing a selection of foods, allowing your body to tell you what it does and doesn’t like at a deep level.
Common symptoms of food sensitivities are:
Headaches and migraines
Feeling tired and lethargic
Because of the delay of symptoms with food sensitivities, it can be very difficult to work out for yourself which foods are causing you problems. A Kinesiology treatment will not only detect which foods you are sensitive to, but will also help to strengthen your digestive system so that you can comfortably tolerate more foods.
Some food sensitivities are constitutional and your body will never like that food or tolerate it very well. Some occur as a result of a weakened gut or because someone has eaten too much of a certain food over a period of time – in these cases, once the food has been avoided for a while (usually at least 3 months, often much longer) and the gut has had a chance to heal properly, your body may begin to tolerate certain foods again. Regular Kinesiology and food testing is a great way of monitoring this.
