What is applied kinesiology and how does it work?

Applied kinesiology is a method of self-care that focuses on understanding the connection between our body and its movements. It was developed by Dr. George J. Goodheart in 1964 and is based on Eastern philosophy, including Chinese Taoism and psychic philosophy. It uses the concept of "innate intelligence" and connective tissue to treat health conditions. The method was originally used by chiropractors, but has now spread to many other medical practitioners. More

Applied kinesiology examines each part of this triad, looking for structural and chemical imbalances that can cause disease or discomfort. It can be used to supplement other treatments or replace standard exams. Generally, the therapist uses several methods to determine the cause of a patient's symptoms and to prescribe treatment. Applied kinesiology has the advantage of identifying the underlying causes of many ailments.

Despite the lack of funding for mainstream medical research, there is increasing scientific support for Applied Kinesiology. A variety of articles have been published in peer-reviewed journals, and several more studies are in the works. Applied kinesiology advocates believe that the methods are beneficial for the body.

Applied kinesiology practitioners use muscle testing and other tests to diagnose and treat illnesses. While a standard medicine practitioner may recommend working out the biceps, an applied kinesiologist will tell you that the problem is with your spleen. If the doctor is able to identify the root cause of your illness, they can suggest dietary changes and nutritional supplements to improve your health.

Applied kinesiology is a form of holistic medicine. It can be used to treat everything from chronic pain to cancer. Many health care practitioners and chiropractors also use this modality. A trained AK practitioner can apply various treatments, ranging from massage and joint manipulation to acupuncture and nutritional therapy.

Applied kinesiology is an excellent tool for doctors because it works on a more sensitive functional level. It can identify dysfunction in the body long before it manifests itself as a disease. It focuses on the body's three major components: its physical structure, its chemical makeup, and its emotional state. Although this method is not perfect, it can be an effective adjunct to other forms of treatment.

Applied kinesiologists use their expertise to help athletes and patients recover from injuries. They perform a variety of muscle tests in order to pinpoint the source of a patient's problems. Applied kinesiologists believe that the best way to treat a condition is to fix the root cause. For example, dizziness is often caused by muscle imbalances in the neck. Conventional exams, such as x-rays, are not designed to detect these conditions.

Despite the widespread use of kinesiology in the world, the Bible does not explicitly mention it. However, practitioners of the science believe that the body has innate intelligence and connects it to the universal intelligence. According to their theory, these energies manifest themselves in the form of life forces. These manifestations are often accompanied by psychic phenomena, altered states of consciousness, and contact with spirits. Look for more

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
