Improve gut health with Systematic Kinesiology

Improve gut health with Systematic Kinesiology

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 u


niversal 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.

Avoid the Use of Anti Perspirants

Avoid the Use of Anti Perspirants (FREEING UP THE LYMPH CHANNELS)

The sweat glands in the armpit are vital to upper chest health. They are a direct route out of the body of many nitrogenous and other toxic waste products. They also allow the skin to “breathe”. It is very important for the sweat glands of the body to be able to release perspiration. Perspiration evaporates from these glands even when the armpit feels dry. This evaporation causes a flow of fluids to replace the amount of perspiration that evaporates.

Unpleasant armpit odour is largely due to these bacteria. It is not necessary to seal the sweat gland ducts with varnish, or glue like substances in order to prevent odour. It is only necessary to use some type of deodorant that kills off the offending bacteria. This neutralises any odour which may come from the sweat itself. Ordinary perspiration, and sweat from exertion does not smell strongly in a fit and healthy person. It is only when a person is cleansing toxic matter that any odour is noticeable. Another good reason to exercise regularly!

Perspiration which is caused by nervousness, mental tension, or fear, often has a more distinctive odour. This odour helps make us consciously aware that we are nervous, and signals to others that we are under tension whether they realise it or not. This odour can be neutralised with an appropriate deodorant. The formulations vary from one manufacturer to another, no one deodorant suits everyone, so it is important to find one which suits you.

Maybe, you could plan only to use a deodorant which contains anti-perspirants when you know that you are going to exert yourself a lot, or when you are likely to be nervous, as when on a first date or job interview. Otherwise, avoid anti-perspirants wherever possible.


There are lots of natural, and very safe alternatives to keeping odor free.

You may want to check out your local health food shops for types of deodorant which are based on natural herb formulas, which may be just as effective for you. Many people worry about the list of chemicals found in antiperspirants – like aluminium, parabens, and triclosan for example.

An anti-perspirant’s job is to seal up the pores of the underarm with lacquer or other substances that dry, and leave a coating over the skin’s pores to in theory prevent sweating. But of course the lymph’s role is to excrete the toxins it has collected from the body, so many people still find that they are sweating regardless.

You can buy natural deodorants that do not contain these substances.  Some natural deodorants use essential oils which have natural anti bacterial properties and are kind to the skin.  Other natural alternatives are to use baking soda or even lemon juice (though not on recently shaved armpits!).
