The natural medicine that we prescribe is helping you achieve a corrective effect of the biochemical imbalances we find during your test.
Conventional medicine often works by treating and suppressing the symptoms of disease, without considering and directly pursuing the underlying causes of those symptoms. The natural medicine approach to well-being (often referred to as functional medicine) works by stimulating or supporting the same mechanisms the body uses to stay healthy by using natural means, such as herbs, homeopathy, acupressure and nutrition. This concept of supporting health by working with the body and identifying the underlying causes that are disrupting those systems is well established.
Your body constantly strives to keep you in good health and usually succeeds as long as you supply it with what it requires and you do not abuse it. However, when you do not give your body what it needs, or when you are exposed to external factors which take you beyond your ability to cope, you become ill. Often illness is a final expression of a long process of overstrain, lowered performance and the accumulation of waste products you fail to break down.
During our kinesiology test, we find out which natural medicine approach and remedy will help the imbalance we are working on. We will thus be testing you to various natural remedies like herbs, probiotics, prebiotics, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and saccharides but also whether physical or hands-on methods could be useful, such as working on meridians (energy lines) with acupressure or acupuncture, colonic hydrotherapy, Bowen Technique, massage, lymphatic drainage etc. We have a varied toolbox to draw from but will also refer to other practitioners when needed.
We use many herbal tinctures as these are highly absorbable and thus you often achieve good results faster. They are often used for detoxification or getting rid of a pathogen like fungus. Probiotics are essential for restoring gut health and scientists find more and more bacterial strains so we test to find the exact combination and strength needed. We test to find the supplements your body requires to make a change to wellness, and we also dose them for you to take a corrective dose given for a short period of time.
