MUSCLE RESPONSE TESTING

Muscle Response Testing (MRT) is based on the concept of internal energy fundamental to traditional Chinese medicine; muscle testing 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 use Muscle Testing routinely and sometimes in conjunction with other analysis such as urine and salvia laboratory testing. If you are suffering from muscle-related problems such as cramps or fibromyalgia symptoms, this may be an efficient way of learning more about your current condition.   Prior to your appointment it is recommended that you do not ingest any supplements for a 24 hour period. If you are currently taking prescription medication continue to take as recommended. MRT is a form of Kinesiology. This electrical/muscular relationship is a natural part of the human system. It is not mystical or magical. Kinesiology is the established method for reading the body’s balance through the balance of the electrical system at any given moment.

THERMOGRAPHY

A safe, painless, non-invasive procedure that can detect the subtle physiologic changes in breast tissue that are a result of breast disease.  It has the capability to detect the early dangers signs of breast cancer, fibrocystic disease, infection or vascular diseases years earlier that detectable by self-breast exam, doctor exam, ultrasound or mammography alone.  Thermography is a wonderful complement to you traditional mammogram.

How does it work?

Detects increased areas of heat associated with increased blood supply needed for tumor growth and development.  Can detect inflammation (heat) associated with mastitis, other infection, fibrocysitic disease or inflammatory breast cancer.  Thermography can detect breast cancer up to 8 years before a mammogram. Cancer cells must form a new vascular supply to grow, and as this occurs at the earliest stages, the cancer becomes visible to the cameral. Why wait for tumor large enough for a mammogram to detect it.

  • No radiation
  • Up to 8 years earlier detection of breast cancer
  • No compression
  • FDA approved
  • Inexpensive
  • Safe for Everyone

DETOXIFICATION

Evolving research suggest that the cause of many health problems may be associated with prolonged exposure to various toxic agents in our environment. The body’s capacity to carry out this complex process of detoxification has to do in large measure with nutrition. Certain foods can burden the detoxification machinery of your body, while certain foods and nutrients can help it. Specific nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients may be extremely important in influencing how well your body detoxifies.

I will work with you to determine which products will best meet your particular needs. In our industrialized world, we produce more and more potentially toxic compounds that find their way into the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. The body must rid itself of these dangerous substances by transforming and then excreting them through the lungs, skin, kidneys, and bowels.

Unfortunately, due to excess stress on our bodies due to lifestyle factors not all toxins are eliminated and some are recirculated back into our bloodstream and others are stored as fat tissue. This is why a good weight loss program must start out with a gentle detoxification process. Over the years toxins can build up in fat, joints, the brain, and various other tissues, potentially leading a variety of health concerns. I will work with you on an individual basis to tailor the perfect detoxification program for your individual needs.

Ionic Foot Detox

Gentle Cleansing with the ionic foot detox allows your body to rid toxins that we are subjected to on a daily basis and that can build up over years. This is a great addition to incorporate with the detoxification and food elimination program I provide in my practice. I recommend a very slow process of cleansing that does not abruptly alter your body’s current status. In doing so you will feel more energized and in the process you will not stress your body out more than necessary.

My office also offers ionic foot baths to help aid the process of detoxification.

Recall the way your body felt the last time you stood next to a waterfall or walked along a beach with the waves breaking at your feet. You breathed deeper into your lungs and abdomen; your brain cleared and the pains in your joints subsided. You felt relaxed and at peace with the world.

These invigorating reactions were caused by the ionization of trillions of water molecules as they crashed to earth.

Detox foot baths can assist in the following areas although they are not intended to treat disease.

  1. Enhancing the immune system
  2. Assist in recovery time from injuries and surgery
  3. Can relieve pain and joint stiffness
  4. Improves sleep pattern
  5. Remove heavy metals
  6. Removes blood clot material
  7. Improve liver and kidney function

Reflexology

By using skillful pressure to specific points in the feet, a reflexologist helps balance the systems within your body.
Reflexology feels good, but it is much more in depth than a good foot massage. For either preventive care or in response to health challenges, reflexology supports balance, stress release and healing.
It  has been shown to improve circulation. Circulation carries oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and carries wastes away. Improved circulation can result in increased muscles tension and soreness, and reduced swelling from injuries or illness. Immune function, skin tone and the ability to concentrate also improve when circulation is increased.
Reflexology is used as complementary care for people with a variety of conditions. For example, reflexology can alleviate headaches. Reduce arthritic and back pain, give support during addiction withdrawal, ease premenstrual discomforts and reduce the symptoms of diabetes.
The more often you receive reflexology, the more benefits you are likely to notice. Your reflexologist will help you decide the best frequency to meet your specific needs. As you begin to experience feelings of well-being from your sessions, you may become more aware of how it feels to be truly relaxed. This  can help you recognize areas of tension, so you can take constructive steps to release them in your daily life.
