A Common Problem

Over $600 million was spent last year on allergy medications, many over-the-counter, all of which give only short-term if any relief, are self-perpetuating, i.e., the more you take them, the more you need, and usually have harmful side effects. Allergies are now the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the USA, and over $10 billion is spent annually in the USA on their treatment.

Few people, including medical allergists, realize how widespread allergies are, and how they cause or contribute to far more serious health problems, physical and mental, than is generally believed. Perhaps 60% of the USA population suffers from undetected food allergies alone. Common food allergens include wheat flour products, cow's milk and milk products, eggs, corn, rye, soy, tomato, potato, peanut, citrus, beef, pork, shellfish, oranges, malt, chocolate, coffee and other caffeine products, MSG, and aspartame products such as "NutraSweet," "Equal," "Spoonful," etc.).

A number of researchers and Medical Doctors are now considering that allergic factors may be involved in most illnesses and medical disorders. Many health problems can be linked to undiagnosed allergic reactions that are weakening your immune system and allowing disease to attack.

Food Allergy Testing


Simple science suggests that every object on Earth, possesses a surrounding electromagnetic energy field. When your body comes in contact with a substance that has an incompatible energy field, it reacts by repulsion causing a subsequent immune response. This negative reaction is what we call an "allergy".  An allergy can be a hereditary condition, or may be influenced by toxins, pollens, dust, molds, chemicals, stress, nutritional deficiencies, malabsorption disorders, and even radiation from common electronic devices.

Within the past 20 years some clinical ecologists (mostly more holistic MDs) and natural health practitioners have redefined allergy as a disturbance of the body's natural flow and balance of meridian energy from  exposure to even a very small amount of a particular substance or radiation. By this definition, in addition to obvious allergies and environmental sensitivities, there may be hidden allergies, which a medical doctor might ignore because of the absence of pathology or symptoms like those above. Both obvious and hidden allergies appear to stress organs and tissues, and may lead to "disease."

A primary cause of allergies is an impaired immune system. This comes about because of the toxic overload from pesticides, heavy metals, food additives, many medications (especially antibiotics, tranquilizers and antidepressants, corticosteroids, birth control pills, hormone replacement pills), and especially for infants and children repeated vaccinations and immunizations. Other major causes include poor diets with resulting nutritional deficiencies, forms of dysbiosis (abnormal organisms, often in the gut, especially "candida" and parasites), eating the same foods repetitively (e.g., eating wheat breads every day encourages a wheat allergy and or gluten intolerance), "leaky gut syndrome" (excessive permeability of the gastrointestinal tract from dysbiosis, poor digestion, over-consumption of alcohol, etc.), excessive emotional stress, etc. Allergies and addictions are closely related. E.g., coffee is a common addictive allergen, and if a person is allergic to coffee, although they won't often sneeze or break into a rash when they drink coffee, hours after the coffee consumption they are likely to experience a headache or low energy if they refrain from another cup--most people will drink coffee regularly to get relief from their symptoms without being aware that it is the coffee that is causing them.

Applied Kinesiology and Food Allergy


Applied Kinesiology or Autonomic Response Testing offers a simple, effective way to help identify food allergies and  intolerances. Kinesiology is based on the scientific understanding that the body is a bio-electrical system and is continually in communication with each of its 600+ muscles; in fact it recognizes that there are connections between muscles, organs, and the Chinese meridian system. If an organ or other reflex is electrically in balance, the muscle remains strong when a stimulus is applied. If a muscle is out of balance, the muscle will become weak in the presence of an applied stimulus, such as when a practitioner applies a consistent force on a muscle in order to observe the body’s response.

Applied kinesiology or Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a useful
modality for uncovering food allergies and or intolerances because it
works with the body's bio-electrical pathways or meridians.

The concept of energy or chi flowing in body pathways known as meridians is the basis of ancient and much modern oriental medicine, including acupuncture and what has come to be called "energy medicine" or "vibrational medicine," as described for example in the excellent 1995 book, "Vibrational Medicine," by Richard Gerber, MD. Although many USA MDs continue to deny the reality of meridians, there is ample evidence of their physical existence (they are very tiny ducts in which a clear colorless fluid slowly flows, completely independent of the blood and lymph circulatory systems).

Muscle testing, therefore, is a very efficient system of obtaining feedback in order to examine the current electrical status of the body. By applying a degree of pressure to a large muscle, such as the deltoid muscle in the arm/shoulder, it is possible to obtain reliable information relating to energy blockages, the health of organs, nutritional needs, and in identifying food allergies and or intolerances.
