Are you working yourself to death?

Are you working yourself to death?

Researchers find that people who work more than this many hours a week, suffer physical and mental health problems. When it comes to your career, there is nothing worse than a job you hate, literally. Employees who worked more than 50 hours in a week suffered from decreased mental and physical health, the research found.Today, the workplace demands mean having to deal with new ways of communication, which did not exist over a decade ago.

  • Workers earning more than ever – but stress levels soared fastest out of 10 EU countries
  • New figures from CSO show average worker’s pay has reached a high point of almost €39,000
  • Workplace stress doubled from 8pc in 2010 to 17pc in 2015, according to the ESRI

According to a University of Manchester study, having a “poor quality” job — a job you hate — is actually worse for your mental health than having no job at all.
In Ireland the majority of workers in every industrial sector claim to be stressed. According to the Irish Congress of Trade Unions 90% of voluntary sector workers consider their job to be stressful. Teachers (88%) and workers in the health service (82%) also report high levels of stress. Construction workers have the lowest levels of stress at 63%.

Sheila our course leader from Cork found herself in a stressful job, overloaded with work and struggling with her health.

Health Road Show - Sheila O'Hanlon

Sheila’s story:

At the age of 25 years old I was working 3 jobs totalling 85 hours a week for minimum wage. I worked hard in catering and in bars. I thought that I would be able to reduce the workload as I got older. However I managed to continue working insane numbers of hours into my 40’s. I was starting to show some signs of what I call my tired legs syndrome.This happens when you are running around in a stressful job while on your feet all day. I remember getting home in the evenings and when I sat down my back would physically spasm from exhaustion. I suffered from restless legs and an even more worryingly a restless mind.
I was getting sick of working long hours. I was showing all the signs of adrenal exhaustion. I headaches, back pain, knee pain and palpitations on a daily basis.

I found Systematic Kinesiology Training at a time in my life when I needed it the most. I am convinced I was a prime candidate for a heart attack or a stroke. I smoked, drank, partied, worked crazy hours, had unfulfilling relationships, drank 15 cups of coffee a day and ate junk food.

Then I started to look for something to help me with my excruciating headaches and through kinesiology I found out that they stemmed from adrenal exhaustion. In retrospect I suspect I may have been adrenally exhausted for in excess of 20 years! We are all motivated to heal ourselves and fix our own health problems first and foremost and when we reach that place we feel this irrepressible need to help others suffering like we were.

I used to work 80 hours a week for the same income that I get now from working 16 hours a week. If you are looking for the freedom to be self employed and control of your own destiny and your own longevity, then training as a Systematic Kinesiologist is the most exciting and humbling and joyful career there is!

I used to work hard and now I hardly work!

You don’t need a medical background or previous experience. You just need

a passion for helping others and a willingness to work towards your goals. My clients paid for my diploma fees because we are encouraged to value our skill set. Training includes business advice as well as practical lessons in client communication. We also get coaching on our own personal development as caring professional kinesiology practitioner.

If any of this reasonates with you and you feel stuck in a similar pattern or you are looking for a chance to help and heal people. Find our more about training at www.kinesiologyzone.com/training

Overcome Weight Loss frustration

Overcome Weight Loss frustration with Kinesiology

Recently on a Sunday morning in Dublin, I was driving to class and was sure it wouldn’t take that long.  The first part of the journey was easy as every light was green.  I was making good progress and even a little pleased that I’d made the right route choice! But then after about 5 minutes of making a good distance, suddenly I hit every red light and frustratingly the journey took me much longer than it should have.

When it comes to getting on the road to weight loss, eating foods to which you’re sensitive can be like meeting red light after red light after red light.  It may even seem like we’re making the right food choices at first, but frustratingly something is making losing weight much longer than it should.

With Irish men scoring the highest body mass index (BMI, a key measure of being overweight), in Europe. Irish women ranking third in this category, and one in four children in Ireland now classified as overweight or obese, concern is growing about the inevitable impact on our hearts.

A person who is overweight is defined as having a BMI of between 25 and 29, while a BMI of over 30 defines obesity. The strong link between being overweight and heart disease is underlined by World Heart Federation statistics which show that 21pc of chronic heart disease cases are actually attributable to having a BMI of over 21, which, for many people would come as a shock. –https://www.independent.ie/life/health-wellbeing/a-weighty-problem-how-ireland-is-on-course-to-be-the-fattest-nation-in-europe-36909596.html

What we eat every day plays an important role in how we feel every day

If your body is sensitive to that food, means you may experience an unpleasant digestive reaction.  But not always.  Digestive reactions can include bloating, nausea, constipation, diarrhoea and weight gain.  But other systems can be affected too, and could be a cause of pain, joint stiffness, brain fog, learning difficulties, anxiety and low mood.digestive problems helped with Systematic Kinesiology

A food sensitivity is different from an allergy

A sensitivity is generally a reaction by the digestive system rather than the immune system, though other areas of the body can also be affected.  A sensitivity can be hard to detect since symptoms can take many hours to appear.   An allergy is a fast acting reaction by the immune system when it perceives an immediate threat, which can often be life-threatening.  These are more easily spotted, whereas a food sensitivity can often go unnoticed for many years.

If you have symptoms of low energy, digestive issues, bad skin, for longer than 3 months, it is worth investigating your diet to see if there might be some sensitivities.

Everyday foods can develop into sensitivities.

Foods which we rely on and make up the bulk of our diet can unfortunately become the very foods we should avoid.  While it’s all too easy to make a list and simply avoid those foods, this is a simplistic and often leads to restricting your diet unnecessarily.  Everyone is different, and while one food may not suit you, it could very nutritious for someone else.

By giving up foods my diet became more varied not more restricted

Occasionally the foods we eat every day, even 4-5 times a day, will be a food we will develop a sensitivity to.  No one should be eating the same foods every day, as a varied diet is generally accepted as being more healthful.  When I learned I was sensitive to wheat, it was only then that I recognised I was eating it at every meal.  Breakfast was a wheat cereal, lunch was a sandwich, dinner was pasta, and the odd biscuit snack.  I didn’t realise how restricted my diet was.  At first I did worry what I might eat, but that was simply a symptom of not appreciating how many different, tasty and easy non-wheat options were available.

What if I avoid my food sensitivities and nothing changes?

While it won’t come as a shock to you that the food you put in your body is important when it comes to weight, what may be surprising is the role food sensitivities play in making weight loss more difficult.  However, if you’ve been there done that, then there may be other factors at play.  If you’re under a considerable amount of stress, then you could be suffering from adrenal exhaustion.   That in turn could be triggering a thyroid issue which slows down your metabolism.  If food sensitivities aren’t making a difference, either the tests you did didn’t identify them all, or there’s perhaps a nutritional deficiency affecting digestion and or absorption.  Common deficiencies might be digestive enzymes, low stomach acid, or zinc.  And while you may not suffer from indigestion, you may have sub optimal digestion.

These are all questions that can be addressed when you visit a Systematic Kinesiologist who will be able to guide your body back to health, which will allow it to release the extra weight. Healthy body first, weight loss second. There are lots of ways to lose weight, that don’t make you healthy. By working with your body, not against it, peace and calm return, particularly around the area of food, and weight loss will be faster and easier.

If you’d like to learn how to do accurate food sensitivity testing, we cover this topic on our first weekend of training on “Balanced Health”.  This course is suitable if you’re a practitioner wanting to add to the services you provide, or keen to deepen your understanding of how the body works, and want to create a positive health culture in your home.

Improve Shoulder Mobilization with Kinesiology



Improve Shoulder Mobilization with Kinesiology

The more precise medical term for a frozen shoulder is “adhesive capsulitis”.

It is a condition where normal shoulder ranges of motion are decreased often severely, and there is pain on resting or with even slight movement.
Most cases of it can occur in people between the ages of 40 and 60. The condition is more common in women than men. It is estimated that it could affect up to 1 in 20 people.

Common issues include:
Unable to reach above shoulder height.
Not able to reach above shoulder height.
Can’t to throw a ball.
Unable to quickly reach for something.
Unable to reach behind your back eg. bra or tuck shirt.
Not able to reach out to your side and behind. eg. reach for seat belt.
Just cannot sleep on your side.

What Causes Frozen Shoulder?
In basic terms, it means that your shoulder pain and stiffness is a result of capsule inflammation (capsulitis) and fibrotic adhesions that limit your shoulder movement.

Through Kinesiology it can be resolved either directly by using shoulder mobilisation technique or indirectly by muscle balancing and resetting the muscles that hold the scapula in place. Sometimes the muscles get moved out of place by trauma or whiplash or injury. They become damaged by constantly over working muscles that are switched off. Dehydration or vitamin deficiency can be an underlying cause too or coming from an emotional standpoint a client may be carrying emotional weight and stress.

All muscles in the body are overlapping other muscles. Each muscle has a particular set of skills and a unique and only job, which is to move the body in a certain way. Muscle fibres are usually smooth and slide effortlessly over and past each other without obstructing the nearby muscles from doing their only job too. If the muscles fibres are dehydrated and become frayed and tight or become loose and entangled then the smooth motion becomes erratic, painful and frozen.

We like to imagine muscles are like sea sponges that you use in the bath tub. When they are wet they are luxurious and soft and smooth our muscles need water to work properly because we humans are roughly 67% water. So now imagine that you take the sea sponge out of the bath water and let it dry out. What happens? It dries out and would now hurt your face. Our muscles need water to function so let’s water them!

Kinesiology we look at underlying problem that could be causing pain. We often recommend making changes when it comes to their diet, stress levels, water intake, caffeine intake, poor sleep habits which can all be contributing towards the pain.
Some schools of thought say it can take up to eighteen months to resolve frozen shoulder, but with Kinesiological balancing it is usually helped much quicker.

 
Before and after pictures of the Diploma class working on techniques you can see the results for yourself.

The Power of Systematic Kinesiology

Tom, one of our Diploma students, has being struggling with an injury and unable to move his arm above his shoulder for over 20 years. He suffers constant pain in his shoulder and was happy to volunteer in class. (See the video below – we apologize for the quality, this was a powerful technique captured in class by one of the students)

While frozen shoulder is commonly missed or confused with a rotator cuff injury, it has a distinct pattern of symptoms resulting in severe shoulder pain, loss of shoulder function and eventually stiffness.

If you have pain that limits your range of movement. It is important to get it checked out and you can find a local Kinesiologist here -http://kinesiology.ie/practitioners/ .

Early treatment can help to prevent long-term stiffness in the joint. Make sure you gently stretch the shoulder before exercising and try to maintain good posture.

New Year – Make it the best one yet.

With the New Year comes the opportunity for a fresh start, we can turn January into an exciting new beginning. We put together our top tips and what we do to help achieve your goals …..

Makes small changes to your diet – Start slow/make changes over time. Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn’t realistic or smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating or giving up on your new eating plan. As your small changes become habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet.

By just adding Ginger to your daily diet it can make a significant different .

• If you are exercising and feel the soreness it may reduce muscle pain and soreness
• Ginger May Drastically Lower Blood Sugars and Improve Heart Disease Risk Factors
• Ginger Can Help Treat Chronic Indigestion
• Ginger May Lower Cholesterol Levels
• Cold and Flu Prevention. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu around Asia.

Fitness Goals – “Dear Santa, This year please give me a big fat bank account and a slim body. Please don’t mix those two up like you did last year.” Didn’t we all see this floating around before Christmas on social media. Plenty of us made healthy New Year’s resolutions for 2016 — “I will finally lose those 10 pounds,” “I will fit in my old jeans,” “I’m giving up carbs.” Yes, setting goals may be the first step to achieving them, but why do we almost always find ourselves back in our old routines, making the same exact resolutions over and over again every year?
Simple steps to help you really achieve your fitness goals this year . Set small, reasonable goals It’s easy to set unrealistic goals with the motivation boost we get on January 1st. Two weeks in and still way too far from reaching our goal, we start finding excuses not to go to the gym, or worse, completely give up and binge on biscuits. Set a series of smaller, more realistic goals that act as stepping stones. You are more likely to achieve specific and reasonable goals like “I will lose 1 pound this week,” or “I will walk 10,000 steps today,” than “I will lose 20 pounds,” or “I will run a marathon.” Start small and take it slow, it will pay off in the end.

Do something you actually like – I have started the Keto diet and some other staff members have taken up running. Hate squats ? Then don’t do them! Exercise is supposed to be fun and make you feel good about yourself, not the other way around. Try a new class or ask your friends what they like doing. Experiment to find the best fit.

Portion control – As boring as it sounds, portion control is still an effective way to cut down on calories without the pain of letting go of your favourite foods. Let’s be honest, none of us will be giving up our guilty pleasures for a whole year.

Drink Water – By simply increase you water intake can make a huge difference. Our digestive system needs water to function properly. Waste is flushed out in the form of urine and sweat. If we don’t drink water, we don’t flush out waste and it collects in our body causing a myriad of problems. Also combined with fiber, water can cure constipation. Make your skin glow. Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Regular and plentiful water consumption can improve the colour and texture of your skin by keeping it building new cells properly. Drinking water also helps the skin do its job of regulating the body’s temperature through sweating. It can even improve your mood. Research says dehydration can affect your mood and make you grumpy and confused. Think clearer and be happier by drinking more water. Make this a new addition to your daily routine in he New Year,

Get to Bed on time
Are you a bedtime procrastinator? failing to go to bed at the intended time. Yes, how many times have you not gone to bed when you said you would even though there was no outside influence or circumstances stopping you from doing so (only yourself)? It is not so much not wanting to sleep, but rather, not wanting to stop what you are doing. You lose track of time looking at your smart phone, tablet, watching TV, or even doing chores, even though you will regret it in the morning. 
Sleep is very important for your body to recharge and heal itself. People actually sleep better when they are well rested rather than when over tired.

If you’re looking for the ideal time to turn the lights off, it’s 10.30pm. This comes form Traditional Chinese Medicine. Every meridian system which is connected to an internal organ has a two our window of focus time.Chinese Medicine practitioners use this clock to help them determine the organ responsible for disease. For example, if you find yourself waking up between the hours of 3-5am each morning, you may have underlying grief or sadness that is bothering you or you may have a condition in the lung area.

If feelings of anger or resentment arise, you may feel them strongest during the time of the Liver which is 1-3am or perhaps if you experience back pain at the end of your working day, you could have pent up emotions of fear, or perhaps even Kidney issues.

Most adults need between 7 to 9 hours per night. Women actually need 1 hour extra than men!!

Say ‘Yes’ to new opportunities – It is important that you need to respect your future self enough and create a plan. Look at some new training, research taking a careen break or changing career if you are not happy . Here at Kinesiology Zone we are offering new students a huge discount on our Spring Training Course . To find our more visit kinesiologyzone.com/training

Happiness Jar
Resolutions are a good concept, but suffer from mostly poor follow-through on the behalf of the majority. I think we all can agree that resolutions are pretty tricky to stick to . . . especially for an entire 365 days and beyond.
Which is why Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert’s revised resolution idea of a happiness jar is a great idea.The best part? It’s incredibly easy. Write down the day’s happiest moment on a slip of paper and put it in a jar (or any sort of container, really). It literally takes 60 seconds or less, and you’re pretty much guaranteed not to fail.

We want to hear your ideas and tips and feel free to comment below ….

Make Room For Your Gift

Our Class of 2017 graduated last weekend and wow, it was a joy to see this group SHINE!

KinesiologyZone Diploma Class of 2017

Right from the start this group’s positive attitude, excitement about Systematic Kinesiology, and their work ethic stood out. They really got behind what we want to achieve with healthcare in Ireland and they’ve been a joy to teach. Many are seeing clients on a part time basis now and others have jumped with both feet in and have full time clinics, acheived during the two years of training.

They took on the challenges, stepped out of their comfort zones, and have discovered their capacity to create a life that overcomes the barriers that life puts up.  All have great skills in helping their clients with stress, gut problems, back issues and many other lifestyle related health problems.

And THIS week, we just completed our powerful communications and transformational workshop with our Class of 2018!

Systematic Kinesiology offers students a wonderful opportunity to look after their own health which inspires them with a deep passion to help others.  This week this wonderful group of student practitioners discovered the power of releasing past issues, became aware of habits and patterns holding them back, got clear on their future, and had great fun discovering new ways to help others.

We are delighted our KinesiologyZone community of practitioners and students is growing because the subject of health is SO important, and too many people are struggling. These graduates and trainees are doing amazing work, helping their families, themselves and their clients overcome challenges.  

Health is not just about fixing one thing.  But when you can identify the root causes of a problem, (and since everyone is different the root cause will be different), you will be able to help people because of the whole person approach we use. 

Emotional stresses, self talk, language and communication.
Nutritional deficiencies, toxins, food sensitivities, and diet.
Physical stresses, aches and pain, muscle balancing, and structural alignment.
Energy, meridians, electrical balancing and “switching”.

There are so many options when it comes to treating ourselves and our clients.

It can be hard to make time for what we love to do, with being “too busy”, have other responsibilities, or other barriers and obstacles that make us believe that now is not a good time.

I love this video from Steve Harvey, about identifying the gift you have inside of you.

The Benefits of Rebounding for 5 minutes




What is rebounding ?….The typical rebound mini-trampoline is about 3′ in diameter and 9″ high. It is safe, easy to use, and effective. Research has led some scientists to conclude that jumping on a mini-trampoline is possibly the most effective exercise yet devised by man, especially because of the effect rebounding has on the lymph in the body.

Have you ever looked out the kitchen window and see the kids bouncing on the trampoline and think that looks fun… well it is it and it is so good for you. So next time take a few minutes and jump on the trampoline and feel the benefits in your body.

The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Contrary to blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as ageing. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.

All the Neuro-Lymphatic points stimulate by energy reflexes the flow of lymph to the related muscle and organ. There is twice as much lymph as blood in the body. It is a non-cellular fluid. It permeates the tissue where blood cells that are imprisoned in capillaries cannot go since there are too large. The lymph feeds and cleans the bodies tissues.

Lymph vessels can become clogged with protein deposits or the flow can stagnate or even stop for reasons such as fatigue, stress, infection, emotional shock, lack of physical activity or dehydration. Toxins accumulate, cells are unable to function properly resulting in various metabolic and infectious problems.

All cells in the body become stronger in response to the increased “G force” during rebounding. Vertical motion workouts such as rebounding are much different and much more beneficial and efficient than horizontal motion workouts, such as jogging or running.

When you bounce on a rebounder (mini-trampoline), several actions happen:

  • An acceleration action as you bounce upward
  • A split-second weightless pause at the top
  • A deceleration at an increased G-force

These immune cells are responsible for eating viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells, so it is good that they be active. Jumping on a mini-trampoline directly strengthens the immune system, so it’s a big deal!

Safety

Everyone should start with the gentle bounce let your feet remain with the mat while the body moves up and down. The health bounce is sufficient to obtain all the benefits of rebounding while gently strengthening the entire body. You can sit chat on the phone,  put in your earbuds and listen to music. It is recommended that you do your rebounding with bare feet so you do not slip. Do not wear tight or constricting clothes. The more jiggling, the more your lymph system is flushing out those toxins!

Start with 5 minutes of rebounding and increase their time as their fitness level improves. Seniors can start with 2 minutes several times per day, with at least 30 minutes between rebounding sessions. Increase your rebounding time gradually.

Inactive seniors find that gently jumping on a mini-trampoline gives them renewed vigor and zest for life. Hyperactive children are reported to calm down after a few days of rebounding.  Everyone  can do this and people can use the rebound mini-trampoline whenever they have a few minutes during the day.

Just some of the Benefits

  • Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function
  • Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass
  • Helps improve digestion
  • Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy.
  • Rebounding in a whole body exercise that improves muscle tone throughout the body.
  • Some sources claim that the unique motion of rebounding can also help support the thyroid and adrenals.
  • Rebounding is fun!

”His Blood Sugar levels were dramatically reduced”

”After three treatments Francis blood sugar levels are down to 45”

 

Living with Diabetes is a huge challenge in today’s society. Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Ireland, increasing at a faster rate than other chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. The total number of people
living with diabetes in Ireland is estimated to be 225,840.

By 2020, it’s predicted, the figure will have climbed to 233,000 people with the condition – and by 2030, it’s predicted, it will be at 278,850.

Emotional and behavioural factors can contribute towards your sugar level, outside of the poor choices people make like poor eating habits, no exercise, excess sugar in the diet and alcohol consumption.

Often not dealing with stress, anger or anxiety can be the underlying problem of diabetes diagnosis for some people.

Stress affects people with diabetes, including type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes  and prediabetes . And managing stress isn’t as easy as just telling yourself to relax and get through your to-do list.  When you have diabetes, stress can affect your blood glucose level, so managing stress when you have diabetes is just another way to work on managing your blood glucose level.

Type 1 Diabetes is rarely reversed but with the right dietary changes major improvements in blood sugar levels can be seen and a person can often reduce their dependence on insulin and medications.

Hear how Finola helped Francis Brenna with health issues including diabetes, he recently chatted to Ryan Turbidy about his treatments with Finola and how Kinesiology treatments have improved his health.

Listen in around the 14 min mark.

Steps Finola would recommend –

* Take a look at your diet. Reducing sugar intake is a must.
* Reduce or remove bread.
* A visit to a Kinesiologist will allow them to look at the way sugar is stored in the body and not allowing it to turn to energy. Sometimes toxins are affecting this pathway which can be treated with herbs. Minerals and vitamins can be introduced to improve the energy production cycle.

People can reduce their risk of developing or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by eating healthy, becoming more active and losing excess weight. To learn more join us this Wednesday on our Health Show where we will talk about defeating diabetes and controlling your blood sugar using natural medicine.

Signs you have adrenal fatigue (and what to do about it)

Signs you have Adrenal Fatigue (and what to do about it)

by Sheila O’Hanlon

 

The thyroid and adrenals are so intricately connected. It wouldn’t be a surprise to me at all if many people suffering from Hypothyroid are struggling with adrenal stress and they have no idea.

Have you heard of the adrenal glands? They are 2 tiny little organs that sit on top of your kidneys and control quite a few actions in your body including your stress response, weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, and immune system. The adrenal glands are really quite incredible in tAdrenals - Kinesiologyzonehat, as a species, they are our primary survival organs.

Over 80% of us will experience adrenal fatigue multiple times over our lives. Symptoms can include weakness, lack of energy, trouble concentrating, becoming easily confused, forgetfulness, trouble completing basic tasks you could once handle easily, hoarse voice, poor digestion, constipation, depression, insomnia, not feeling rested after waking from sleep, and relying on naps during the day.

Adrenal fatigue has existed as long as we have, but it has only reached epidemic proportions over the last 100 years. Why is this? The answer lies in the way that our lifestyles have changed over that time. The average person’s stress levels, diet and toxic load are all immeasurably worse today than they were at the start of the twentieth century.

The best way to support your adrenals and help recover your health is to eat a light, balanced meal every 90 minutes to two hours.Giving your adrenal glands lots of rest allows them to devote energy to healing and restoring themselves.

Each of your meals should ideally contain a balance of potassium, sodium, and natural sugar (from fruit). Snacks you can graze on to help recover your adrenal health, including:

Apple, celery, and dates
Orange, avocado, and spinach
Sweet potato, kale, and lemon juice
Cucumber, avocado, and lime juice
Banana, dates, and romaine lettuce
Coconut water, dried apricots and celery
Coconut water, banana, and spinach
Pear, berries, and mache
Mango, figs, and celery

The last and most important key to restoring your adrenal function is to heed your mind and stress needs. Pay attention to your body! To learn some techniques to help you do this join Siobhan on Facebook live this Thursday. Click the link to register your place or get the replay.

If you aim for a balanced lifestyle with a healthy level of exercise and sleep including a positive environment, then you are most likely to keep your adrenal system going strong.

“Adrenal fatigue, in all its mild and severe forms, is usually caused by some form of stress. Stress can be physical, emotional, psychological, environmental, infectious, or a combination of these. It is important to know that your adrenals respond to every kind of stress the same, whatever the source.”
James L. Wilson, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome

”Woman gave up WHEAT after she discovered it was the cause of her respiratory problems”

wheat free kinesiology

Lady suffered chest infections and was hospitalized for respiratory issues for years and it was all down to WHEAT

  • Ann’s throat would swell and she would have trouble breathing.

  • She had being diagnosed with asthma.

  • After being tested by a Kinesiologist she removed wheat from her diet and her health changed overnight.

Hear from Deborah Cunningham a Kinesiology Diploma student who treated the client –

A woman aged in her mid-forties came to see me. She had been suffering from frequent chest infections for years; had serious allergies to honey, cod, house dust and pollen and it was gradually worsening. Her throat would swell and she would have trouble breathing.  Her immune system was shot, so she dreaded the winter approaching and even in the summer she would get ill especially when traveling. She was diagnosed with asthma within the previous two years. As her symptoms worsened she was put on more inhalers and strong steroids she even ended up in hospital.  After hearing her history I did some food testing and found her main issue was Wheat!

Her diet consisted of alot of wheat, like so many people trying to find a healthy breakfast option she ate Weetabix daily for breakfast and had a daily diet consisting of pasta and bread.  She was willing to eliminate it and within a week she got in touch to tell me she felt miles better.

Within a short space of time she had lots more energy and had gradually reduced her inhalers with her doctor. By her third visit she almost off all her meds. She had Weetabix once over that period and ended up at the doctor with respiratory problems she stays away from the weetabix now!

People may not realize it, but the foods we are eating every day could be slowly corrupting our health and shortening your lifespan. After getting tested from a Kinesiologist, eliminating food is the only real way to know how Wheat is affecting your health.


Eliminate the usual foods for up to 25 days.
(The basic elimination diet is as simple as this: No gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, fast food, or alcohol.)

DO eat lots of fiber, fresh whole foods, and unprocessed meals you make yourself.
– DO eat lots of healthy fats found in olive oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, flax oil, walnut oil, and avocados.

After an elimination process of up to 25 days pick one thing you eliminated like gluten, dairy or eggs—but not more than one, and eat it.

See how you feel over the next 48 hours. If you have no reaction after two days, eat that same food again, and for a second time, notice how you feel. From there, it’s up to you whether or not to re-incorporate that food into your diet on a regular basis.

Once you’ve made a call on the first food you reintroduce, pick another one and follow the same steps.

Throughout the diet and the reintroduction process, notice how you feel. Maybe you’ll see changes you weren’t expecting. Maybe your sleep quality or your energy level is better. Maybe the redness in your skin is gone, or your belly is flatter or likes Deborahs’s client begin to feel and breathe better within days.
