Why you should include Kinesiology as part of your Weight Loss Plan.
Weight loss and weight management is much more complex than simply just eating less and exercising more.
There are a number of nutritional, physical, hormonal, hereditary, emotional and psychological factors involved in managing weight and feeling comfortable and confident in our bodies.
As many of us know, diets can have an effect in the short term. However, many of us following diets tend to find ourselves slipping back into old habits after time. This leaves us feeling worse than when we started. Unless we can uncover the reasons we’re actually turning to excess eating or sabotaging our exercise regime, the weight keeps coming back. That’s where kinesiology is effective.
A study in the International Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity, shows a connection between how a woman feels about her physical image and her ability to lose weight. We can imagine that this will apply to men on a similar level.
Researchers identified a common weight gain cycle including the following key points … Do you:
- Criticize yourself for looking bad.
- Overeat due to stress/need for comfort.
- Gain weight.
- Feel bad about self and begin to self-criticize.
The research shows that positive body image plays a key role in the ability to lose weight and keep it off.
Women who feel better about how they look tend to be less anxious about what others think and more likely to adopt better eating habits, instead of resorting to comfort eating during times of stress.
Findings suggest that the tendency to criticise self is usually the result of negative psychological attachments that have roots in earlier life experience.
Kinesiology as an effective therapy in the treatment of weight related concerns.
As a holistic therapy, kinesiology looks at all issues associated with weight loss and weight management as it is related to nutrition, stress, beliefs, attitudes and attachments to past experiences. By utilising modalities including the Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Nutrition and Detoxification, Sports Therapy, Homeopathy (flower essences) and Holistic Counselling. A kinesiologist uses tools that enable them to find out what is causing weight gain or the inability to achieve weight loss.
If you’re on a weight loss plan and having trouble losing weight or are finding that particular issues are surfacing for you as you undergo your weight loss journey then kinesiology can help helping you to move forward.
I have seen clients not only shift weight but create profound changes in their lives as they have done so. I also work with an established database of practitioners I trust to further help you on the path.
Suggested treatment plan.
When treating an issue with the help of kinesiology I recommend:
- An initial 90 minute kinesiology consultation followed by 3 – 5 standard consultations 1 -2 weeks apart.
- Further follow-up standard consultations should be spaced between 2 -4 weeks apart or booked as needed.
