”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.

Health Show #10 – Gut health, leaky gut and what you can do

“Leaky Gut” could be the cause of many health problems, but is it a cause or a symptom?

The health of our gut is key to our health, because not only does it affect the health of the liver, it also houses a big part of our immune system.  Health Show Episode #10 covered the topic of a leaky gut, a condition that is associated with a wide range of seemingly unconnected symptoms. I aimed to shed some light on how as a Systematic Kinesiologist we can go about identifying and resolving this issue through lifestyle changes.  We talked about how it occurs and what you can do to heal it naturally.

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

The official definition of Leaky Gut Syndrome is an increase in permeability of the intestinal mucosa to luminal macromolecules, antigens, and toxins associated with inflammatory degenerative and/ or atrophic mucosa or lining.  Leaky gut is a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyper permeability.  Put more simply, large spaces develop between the cells of the gut wall allowing bacteria, toxins and food to leak into the bloodstream.

But the intestines are indeed permeable. Spaces do open up normally, it’s designed to let things through – so that nutrients and other molecules get in and out of the intestine. The production of Vitamin B in the large bowel is absorbed back into the body via the bloodstream.

Leaky gut is a condition that increasingly evidence is suggesting is a significant factor in our digestive and therefore the whole body’s health.  The problem occurs when substances overstimulate the release of zonulin, (wheat and other gluten foods do this) and the spaces between the cells become wider, which then allows much larger protein molecules to get into the bloodstream where an immunologic reaction can take place.  A key to resolving autoimmune problems lies here.

Solutions to Leaky Gut and digestive health problems generally

There are many things you can do if you’re suffering from digestive distress, and the focus is to remove any predisposing factors, reduce inflammation, treat and remove other contributory factors and then focus on repairing the gut lining.

  1. Predisposing factors could include antibiotics (they kill off your good bacteria as well as the bad), paracites, amalgams and other toxic metals, as well as food sensitivities.  Avoiding sugar, alcohol and artifical sweeteners too.  Chronic stress can weaken the immune system, and low stomach acid impacts on your ability to fight off bacteria and viruses.  As we see in the demonstration in the video, there may well be an issue around low HCL and/or digestive enzymes.   If that’s the case then you may see the need to take HCL as well as some good bacteria (bacteria in the evening, and HCl with each meal).
  2. Decreasing inflammation nutritionally with Vit D3/K2, Turmeric, Ginger, Quercitin, Vit C, Zinc.
  3. Other factors that may play a role in digestive health is the Ileo Caecal Valve (ICV), and as we see in the video, this was the case, and needs to be corrected as part of a whole person approach to resolving digestive health problems.

How to repair the gut lining

There’s a lot we can do nutritionally.  L Glutamine, Omega 3 fats (which help with cell wall repair), Zinc, as well as a good probiotic are all options that can be tested for with muscle testing, to establish which are the best for you.

All stress affects the body the same way

Most health problems are lifestyle related, and so to really heal from gut issues we can’t just focus o

n the gut.  We need to think about the food we eat, how it’s digested, what we’re thinking about, and how we allow the body to rest and relax.  So accumulating sleep debt also affects our overall health.

There will never be a full recovery in such cases until the digestive system is brought back into a healthy state, and the immune system supported and rebuilt.

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.

Deborah learned how to food test by attending one of our Balanced Health Training courses, by picking up these skills she has being able to go on and help other people around her.

, Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back To Health

This Man Gave Up Sugar,Artificial Additives for a Month.

Here’s What Happened When a Guy Quit Sugar for a Month

Sacha Harland decided to take on a challenge! He decided to give up sugar, alcohol, artificial additives and unhealthy food for one month. He wanted to see how would this dietary alteration affect his mental and physical conditions.

He captured his physical and mental journey in the six-minute clip above. Check out his incredible journey through the following video:

After watching this video there are many health issues we can still debate about. Is coffee bad for you? Does the cabbage soup diet work?

However there is one thing we can all usually agree on – sugar is bad for you (if you have too much of it). Isn’t it really interesting that Sacha starts to struggle really early on into the challenge and soon learns that his taste buds have been trained to crave salt and sugar-laden items.

We also see them highlight hidden sugars. Sugar consumption is both in plain sight and hidden, ingested from the most unlikely places. Sugar in tomato ketchup and microwave dinners, soups and crackers and just about every other processed food out there. Who are the biggest culprits? Soft drinks lead the list at 33% of our sugar consumption (drink water instead of coke and you’ve already made a huge dent). sugar kinesiology Sweets 16%. Baked goods like biscuits and cakes, 13%. Fruit drinks 10%. Sweetened yogurt and milk almost 9%.

If you are considering making a change in 2017, you don’t have to completely detox like Scott but reducing processed food and reading labels can make a huge difference.

9 Steps To Recover from Christmas Overindulgence

 Steps To Recover from Christmas Overindulgence

Once again we have reached that time of year when many of us will either eat too much or drink too much or, in all likelihood, both. Overindulgence is as much a part of the festivities as exchanging presents and many of us are all too familiar with the consequences of this excess!                                                                                                             54924

Often you feel bloated and sluggish, but it’s no reason to beat yourself up and continue the overindulgence. The problem with the holiday season is that it’s never just the one Christmas dinner, but there are the leftovers to contend with. We often get clients coming to us after Christmas with gut problems, chronic pain and high levels of stress all of which can be treated with a Kinesiology treatment but to help yourself and empower your own health before and after Christmas their are steps you can take.

Things that will help you recover:

1.Digestive enzymes help speed up the breakdown and absorption of macronutrients. DigestEeze (Milk Thistle) is one of the most important supplements for recovery with its ability to relieve the symptoms associated with occasional over-indulgence of food and drink such as indigestion and upset stomach.
2.Fluids will help flush your system and keep you hydrated. Drinking extra water facilitates a more rapid removal of this waste.
3. Ginger has high levels of gingerol, which gives it a natural spicy flavor and acts as an anti-inflammatory in the body. It also has potent anti-nausea properties and can ease stomach cramping.
4. Keeping the bowels moving effectively is an essential part of a healthy recovery and therefore the use of high fibre foods such as pulses, quinoa and brown rice can help the process
5. A good multi-vitamin and mineral is essential for the removal of toxins whereas an antioxidant rich formulation provides the added benefit of helping to neutralise free radicals. Chlorophyll rich green foods such as Spirulina and Wheat Grass also offer great benefit to those looking to cleanse their system.
6. Go for a walk. This can aid digestion and possibly help decrease the fat your body stores. One study showed that when subjects took a light walk after a high-fat meal, they decreased their post-meal triglyceride concentrationrun-750466_1920-300x225         (the type of fat your body stores to use for energy) by around 70 percent compared to the non-walking group.
7. Use turmeric, it is a member of the ginger family that contains the active ingredient curcumin, which is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
8. Get sleep – December can be such a busy month running around shopping and Christmas parties and preparing food but try to get to bed at a decent time and if you have some time of work use that time to catch up on sleep and rest your body.Get leftovers out of sight&gt.
9. Get leftovers out of sight. Whether you encourage guests to take leftovers with them, or stick them in containers to store in your freezer, moving extra food out of sight and out of mind will help you return to your normal healthy eating routine over the next few days
I hope you find these tips helpful and that you enjoy a wonderful Christmas break!

“Educational Kinesiology” – Switch the brain back on

“Educational Kinesiology” –
Switch the brain back on with lazy eights

blog-covers-2

Everyone can do with a little help to make the brain work better. Regardless of age, job or position in the world everyone wants to use their brain as efficiently as they can. If they two sides of the brain are not communicating as well as they might, this can adversely affect everything we do. But have you tried ‘lazy eights’ technique?

We are inviting you to try a simple exercise to switch the brain back on and get it working in an integrated way again. Drawing ‘lazy eights’ will help integrate the two sides of the brain. head-1230669_1280

This activity is especially useful and beneficial for children with Dyslexia, ADD, Dyspraxia, Developmental Delay or a Sensory Processing disorders. The “Lazy Eight” are designed to relax the eyes and develop coordination between the left and right sides of the brain and body while preparing to write.

You are basically writing the number 8 on it’s side. That’s why it’s lazy.

SO LETS START….

Start with a large sheet of white paper (A3 would be best) or a white board in a landscape position.

Place it in front of you so that the middle of your page is parallel to the middle of your body, your belly button.(You want to be crossing over your belly button to get to to the left and right of your page as you draw). Then ask them to write something like:

” This paper is white and the writing is black” (Believe what you are writing have a black pen!) For better results use a neutral statement that is true for anyone.

14724379_10154024087979786_1860937327418164518_nThe aim is to keep your hand steady and let your eyes follow what you are doing. Start with your pen in the middle of your page.

14666074_10154024087939786_6330315870659900321_n Move your marker  down, up and around to make a “c” like shape.Now keep tracing around your shape, without taking your marker from the page.

14695319_10154024087964786_2583158166360819530_nContinue until there is a dozen swirls (20 secs) of the ”lazy eight” exercise.

Have them write the same statement  again. There is almost always a change for the better in writing.

If you are doing it with your child you can always draw a Lazy 8 for your child to trace over if they find it difficult. Just make sure that they start at your start point and continue in the correct direction.

You will see Lazy 8’s have lots of benefits for your child. It is a very useful to do this activity before starting homework. It calms, and focuses the mind. how to perform written tasks by training their bodies and eyes using large movements so that they will eventually be able to do the same using smaller movements on paper.

This exercise can help children, adults and seniors to improve:

  • Concentration and Focus
  • Memory
  • Academics: reading, writing, math, test taking

    BY HANS-PETER

    BY HANS-PETER

  • Physical coordination
  •  Relationships
  •  Self-responsibility
  • Organization skills
  • Attitude

This simple exercise, can and will help all who do it regularly to write and think better.

Check out our video demonstration and if you try this we would love to hear about it in the comments below.
