Food allergies vs food sensitivities. And Systematic Kinesiology

A common question I get asked is about Food Allergies and and Food Sensitivities.

Here’s my answer that I recorded while I am on a walk – multi tasking as ever.

Systematic Kinesiology is all about finding out what is stressing you, and food can be a common stressor.  It’s not the only thing, and often when we become sensitive to a lot of foods, it more of a sign that the body is out of balance and responding to a lot more stresses than just food.  So while it can be helpful to avoid certain foods for a certain length of time, and it’s only part of the path to recovery.

Stress is the #1 cause of chronic illnesses in the modern world.  Your body is designed to be respond to stress in a certain way – the fight/flight response.  When your body is responding to a stress (like running away from danger) it turns it’s attention away from other less essential “in the moment” needs – like digestion, fighting infections, even logical thinking can be affected – because if you’re running away from danger you haven’t time to think about it you just have to respond.  So we spend our lives responding to stressful stituations, not always feeling like we’ve time to think about it.

In the Balanced Health Course, we teach you how to reduce the effects of worries and stresses of today, and how to do test foods.  People’s lives can literally be changed because they find out that some of their symptoms are related to the foods they’re eating, and that they are constantly in a stress response place.

The video is much shorter than what I’ve written above – it’s really about the question, but that has inspired the above post now.

Enjoy, and the bird song 🙂
