Let thy Food be thy Medicine
Nutritional Kinesiology is a nutrition-focused derivative of kinesiology. It is a culmination of philosophies and techniques and encompasses procedures from Nutritional Science and Holistic Kinesiology, incorporating the energetic sciences.
You are what you eat. Everything that you put into your body becomes a part of who you are on a physical and energetic level. Your cells are a product of the nutrients they have been able to derive from your diet.
We live in a world where food is mass produced in nutrient-deficient soil. A large amount of it is transported over long distances. It is over-processed, preserved and chemical enhancers added. By the time it gets to the table we find ourselves consuming nutrient-deficient calories. Processed foods do not contain the building blocks of life and are one of the key causes of illness. Think about it, the nutrients we eat are the building blocks of our cells. When we are nutrient deprived it makes sense that our bodies don’t function optimally.
Nutritional kinesiology can help us to determine what nutrients our bodies are missing out on. It can also help us understand what chemicals and nutrients we are overloaded with. Nutritional kinesiology can help uncover blocks in the digestion and assimilation process. It also points to blockages in energy systems that may account for digestive disturbances.
Kinesiology can also help to determine the right type of foods and supplements for your body. At Affinity Wellness we do not subscribe to any particular dietary plan. We believe everybody has different requirements and needs; we will assess your needs on an individual basis.
On an emotional level, how we eat is about so much more than just providing fuel for the body. Food provides us with a way to nurture ourselves and our families and bring us together with the people we love. So many of us have food addictions and disorders that reflect a negative way of seeing the self. We may use food as punishment or a crutch; kinesiology can help investigate and clear these issues to help us create a healthy relationship with food.
Nutritional Kinesiology can aid in the treatment of weight loss, illness, hormonal imbalances, digestive and mood disorders.
Where we cannot derive the nutrients we need from food, we advocate supplementation.
We do not stock nutritional supplements in clinic. Instead, we suggest that our clients purchase supplements required online through iHerb, a reliable, inexpensive way to access some of the best brands used by practitioners worldwide.
We will supply you with relevant information regarding recommended brands etc. when you visit us in clinic.
Water makes up 70% of our body and without it, we can not live, Water is such a big component of who we are but we don’t often consider the water we are drinking. Water has also proven to be an important conductor of meridian energy around the body, and in kinesiology practice, it is essential that clients are well hydrated before they experience a session.
We recommend that adults drink at least eight glasses per day.
