The milk industry has been working hard for decades to convince us that it’s absolutely essential for everyone to drink milk.
Milk supporters – and the milk industry – tend to focus their marketing on bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis to sell their cupfuls. And while intuition may tell you that the consumption of calcium must, in turn, do a body good, the medical literature isn’t so sure
Conventional cows milk is a food that can cause leaky gut. The component of dairy that will harm your gut is the protein A1 casein. Also, the pasteurization process will destroy vital enzymes, making sugars like lactose very difficult to digest.
The mechanism behind dairy causing the damage it does lies in several areas:
1. It stops the formation of glucosamine in the gut lining, thereby creating a leaky gut. (Glucosamine is known to help repair the mucosal-lining defensive barrier in our small intestine.)
2. It impairs immune system development in the gut and the maturation of important immune cells known as T helper cells – this can lead to autoimmune disease, asthma, allergies.
3. The milk from other mammals is too high in protein and phosphorus and the protein damages the gut lining.
4. Dairy products are highly chemically laden, the highest per gram of all food, and are thereby toxic to the gut lining.
5. Dairy creates a mucous “slime” in the lining of the gut that prevents the absorption of some nutrients as well as causing gut inflammation. – (http://glutendoctors.blogspot.ie)
Hear from Brian who joined us for a recent workshop he believes ” we should not be drinking milk”
Brian’s take on milk is rather straightforward. Milk does not appear to the magic food whose consumption leads to strong bones or everlasting life. It is also not the dietary problem that’s poisoning the nation. And although a source of calcium there are many alternative sources of calcium and that, if bone strength and general health is your concern.

If you feel your health is suffering from eating dairy prodcuts a visit to a Kinesiologist can determine if you are lactose intolerant. Using muscle-testing, we can find out whether a particular food is stressful for a person by placing the item on their body and pressing on a muscle We can also test to see if it is an allergy or an intolerance and see how it might be affecting the person emotionally as well as physically. (In some cases, a particular food can switch a person into sabotaging themselves – in other words, when they eat it, they tend to make unhealthy choices in life. A good example would be dairy.)

Health Road Show – Day Two
Wow thanks Ballyboey Donegal…… we had a packed room and the energy was amazing. We want to thank all of you who came along and supported us I know it meant alot to our course leaders up there Mella and Claire.
If you didn’t get a chance to come along Mella and Clare are holding Taster Event in Donegal and Derry click the link for all the details. http://www.kinesiologyzone.com/kinesiology-taster-event/
Mella our course leader in Donegal had an opportunity to have Siobhan from the Donegal Now come in for a treatment last week and afterwards Siobhan wrote ”I felt that I was well and truly on the road to a recovery I hadn’t realised I needed”, I will let you read the rest on the fanatic results here in a link to the article. –https://www.donegalnow.com/features/kinesiology-unleashes-true-life-force-energy-find-health-roadshow/175691
We had lots people willing to be tested and here is Clare in action.
She covered a range of topics including bloating, food intolerances and digestive issues.
Thank so much for the positive feedback and the great hospitality we received in Donegal.
If you want to come along to New Ross or book our taster event in Dun Laoughaire visit www.Kinesiologyzone.com/roadshow
The digestive system is key to our health
Kinesiology properly used, is capable of being the most wholistic approach to natural healthcare. I was at a seminar on Saturday to learn more about about gut health and gluten sensitivity (a topic we teach ourselves here at KinesiologyZone and there’s always something more to learn). Even 2000 years ago, it was Hippocrates who said that … all disease begins in the gut. And as Kinesiologist I see a lot of people coming to me for treatment who have imbalances of the digestive system. While this is not always the primary reason for a client coming to see me – frequently it’s for pain, low energy, headaches, and or skin problems etc. more often than not, they will also have a digestive imbalance, that if not addressed will contribute to their health issue not being resolved.
Our digestive system is a key part of our immune system – which means that when it is upset we are more susceptible to being run down, more likely to catch whatever is going around, and decrease our productivity.
Since Systematic Kinesiology rebalances and revitalises the major systems of the body, it enhances internal natural healing processes. It is a simple, non-intrusive approach that enables us to get into harmony with our own bodies. The basics are easy to learn and the results dramatic. It offers many ways to help the whole person in a fully integrated way. Any healthcare approach which neglects to deal with all four specific aspects of human function will not be as effective. – Mental/emotional; dietary and chemical factors; structural and physical considerations; and life force energy imbalances.
Diet is of vital importance and many people eat foods which actually feed the health problems they suffer from. There is no such thing as a universal diet and we are beginning to realise the concept we use in Systematic Kinesiology of “biochemic individuality”. It is vital for each person to adjust their diet to one which suits them individually.
What we eat can have an impact on others parts of the body, not just IN the gut. Thyroid function and auto-immune diseases have documented papers showing there to be a wheat and gluten association. But that’s only part of the reason. While you may have a genetic disposition, there is usually a trauma or event such as an infection that will start the early stages of disease.
The way we think and use our emotions affects our body much more than we realise.
Shock, disappointments, arguments, depression all have an instantaneous effect on us. The tests used in Systematic Kinesiology show dramatically just how upset emotions disorientate the energy of the body and its ability to function at its best. When we get stressed, our cortisol levels increase – and that has a direct result on our gut by making it slow down – which can result in constipation.
The body has an amazing ability to heal itself.
But if we are constantly blocking this natural ability, or don’t know about it and rush to the fastest pain reliever instead, is it any wonder that our lives are becoming increasingly stressed and out of balance. When I teach about helping the body to better health, and when we understand a little bit more how the body works, it can help us to look at our symptoms in a different way.
Learning more about how to test for food sensitivities, healing from emotional traumas, and balancing the body puts your health back in your hands.
