My French Acupuncturist suggested today (February 1, 2013) that I be tested
for food intolerances (which are not the same as allergies - just as my Kinesiologist said) at a Parisian lab
which takes a blood sample and tests for 250 items. Since I have confidence in
my Kinesiologist's muscle testing work performed in 1984, I would do the blood test only to compare the two methods. But as my Doctor said, Kinesiology is subjective and one can't be assured of the results or finding a competent one. There are apparently 4 such labs in Paris. This would appear the best road to follow for most people. I assume the same service is available in the United States and elsewhere.
One added comment: Refer to this page on muscle testing to understand that when
the body is balanced energetically through Chinese medicine
derived energy therapies, the muscles are strengthened. A stressed organism
loses muscle strength. Optimal diet therefore reduces stress on the vascular
system preventing blood reflux into the brain, it can heal damaged tissue, and
by preventing an "unbalanced" electromagnetic energy field in the body it can
actually strengthen the muscles.
I just watched (July 12, 2012) a January 27,
2011 interview which Dr. Wahls gave to Katie Roche. She states she stopped
taking the MS medication in order to heal, but gives
no advice on how she got
off of it, what effects the withdrawal had. She
gives no advice or warning. She
recommends using a device for
neuro-muscular electrical stimulation in order to
develop atrophied muscles on her back. She is apparently unaware she is working
on the Bladder Meridien (Chinese Medicine) which stimulates blood circulation in
the brain. She does not say the true cause of MS is a blood reflux which injures
the brain and spinal cord. She recovered by 1) de-toxifying from the MS
medication which was poisoning her as well as food toxins 2) nourishing
herself optimally with paleo diet food and nutritional supplements 3)
progressive exercise and 4) neuro-muscular electrical stimulation which
enhances blood circulation. She, like about 2/3 MS patients, probably does
not have a CCSVI structural vein stenosis and cannot benefit from
angioplasty. Her blood reflux, or poor blood/brain circulation, must have
been due to stress compressed veins which were relaxed by the non toxic
diet as well as the electrical stimulation and then her brain healed thanks
to the nourishment of this diet.
Here I will explain the basic
principles of Muscle Testing which were derived
from Chinese Medicine theory and practice. I received a diploma as an
Acupressure Massage Therapist in 1987 from the Berkeley Acupressure Institute,
and though I only practiced on myself, family and friends. I know what I’m
writing about. (I also took several workshops from Dr. Jimmy Scott on his
“Health Kinesiology” therapy.)
The foundation course is based on Chiropractor John F. Thie’s book Touch For Health, (Copyright 1973) a course anyone can take. It is founded on the American
do-it-yourself principle and intended to train people to help
themselves and their loved ones.
There are 12 Organ Meridians and 2
supplementary meridians (Central and Governing.) Each Meridian
corresponds to one or several muscles. For instance, the main thigh
Quadriceps muscle corresponds to the Small Intestines Meridian. When
the Meridian is “balanced”, the muscle is strong. When the Meridian
is “blocked or unbalanced”, the muscle is weak. This can be
demonstrated, you can learn to do it yourself. One can
strengthen the Meridian by deep massage of Neurolymphatic points,
or by holding specific acupuncture points, all shown in the book. (One can
also brush the meridian from it’s source point to its ending point.) In the
course, to teach muscle testing, a meridan is chosen and strengthened and
then a corresponding muscle is tested for strength. Then the Meridan
is weakened and one tests the corresponding muscle which indeed loses
strength. (The only meridian which should never be weakened is the
heart meridian.) At first you are taught to strengthen all the
meridians, testing corresponding muscles to confirm they are
“balanced”,and only after all the meridians have been strengthened can it
be said that the person has been “balanced”.
A Kinesiologist shortens the process of meridian
balancing by working on points around the navel to test how all the
meridians are functioning and then “balances” only those in need of it.
Then begins a process of ”ask the body” what issue needs to be addressed
using the arm alone for muscle testing. If the answer is yes, the arm
muscle is strong, if no, the muscle is weak.
That is how food intolerances are determined as
well as the individualized diet.
Stress of any kind can throw a meridian out of balance,
which explains why stress can actually weaken the muscles and the body in general. Therefore consider that in MS loss of muscle strength can occur for 2 major reasons. 1) damage to the nervous system and 2)
“unbalanced” acupuncture meridians. Diet that “balances”the meridians can go a long way to strengthen the muscular system which can well precede healing in the nervous system.
I resumed the “paleo-macrobiotic”, veggie juice, gluten free diet around January 17,
2012. Mid March the muscles on the outside of my right leg began to cramp
up and “work”. I could pull the leg up in physical therapy without simply
using the Quadricep thigh muscle. I was surprised that after only 2 months
of detox diet part of the dormant nervous system began to work. (The
first time around in 1984-85 it took a year for “dead” nerves to work.)
It doesn’t really make sense that the myelin sheath would heal in such a
short time. Then late March I developed a bladder infection which weakened
me and eventually I took antibiotics to treat it. As usual this threw my
Acupuncture meridians out of balance, my bladder didn’t empty well, my legs
were clumsy. Were the nerves affected, or simply the meridians which
control the muscles? Also the recent improvement in the leg disappeared.
Once off the antibiotics, my legs and balance strengthened and 2
days later the muscles outside the leg reaching into the buttocks began cramping
again and appeared to be working. Are these the nerves? My own impression is
that the“blocked” blood flow has resumed to nourish the brain. Maybe
the problem isn’t simply a question of periodic blood refluxes but
insufficient blood flow into the brain (of course this corresponds to my
theory that the circulatory system is “stunted” or insufficient in MS).
According to Kinesiology, when the body’s energy circulation is
“unbalanced”, blockages can occur everywhere, not just the muscles. Perhaps
by removing substances my body cannot tolerate,the energy system
re-establishes itself, and the blood can nourish the brain correctly. We
shall see. I am surprised at such a rapid response to diet change. I
wonder how far it will take me?
So now we return to the problem of
medication. I spoke with one MS patient who said the only thing that
stopped raging MS attacks for her was Copaxone. So how can she
risk going off of it without some back-up help. Each "attack" means brain
damage. And who will help her? MS patients are up against the “Semmelweis
Reflex”. The Neurologists (not to mention the drug companies) dishing out these
medications aren’t likely to admit they are poisoning their patients and those
who think so don’t have the authority to do anything about it.
I believe that some day there should be MS drug de-tox centers like there are
today for alcohol and drug addictions. I believe the first healing step
for MS patients is to de-toxify. And then to nourish the body and brain
correctly. A “balanced” meridian system will strengthen the muscles, proper
blood flow to the brain will nourish the nervous system. And if there are
real structural problems, angiologues can correct them. But we aren’t
