Specialised Kinesiology
Kinesiology is the science of assessing the energetic systems of a person for balanced function, by using the change of physiological response through the muscular system as feedback. Using this same feedback, Kinesiology identifies any non-invasive treatment strategy to primarily affect and balance the energetic systems of a person for the purpose of promoting, restoring and maintaining health.

Ozone for sportsmen and women

runnerOzone oxygenates the tissues, while also increasing the production of ATP. This shortens recovery times from sports injuries and high intensity exercise and increases energy levels. It also assists with sore muscles and slows anaerobic fermentation which combats the building up of lactic acid in muscles.
Studies have shown that ozone therapy can help increase an athlete’s endurance, the capacity to build muscle, and even increases brain function. It also increases blood flow to the heart, which reduces the amount of strain your body takes during a workout.
One of the conducted studies showed that male runners who engaged on an average of 12- to 30- minute sessions twice a week (immediately after intense running sessions) experienced a 32% increase in the distance they could run before reaching the point of exhaustion. Another case study showed that a group of athletes who underwent frequent sessions in between training increased their physical fitness by 53.7%, as opposed to the 11.55% of the group who did not.
Benefits of ozone treatment for sportsmen and women:
• Increased tissue oxygenation
• Higher levels of ATP, resulting in more energy and faster recovery
• reduced lactic acid build-up
• Prevention of sore muscles
• Reduced swelling, bruising and pain, and faster healing
• Could increase performance

How to do a kidney cleanse fast

Your kidneys serve an important function by filtering and managing the waste your body produces, so it’s essential to keep them healthy. One way to keep your kidneys functioning properly is to do a kidney cleansing fast. Not only can a kidney cleansing fast dissolve kidney stones, it can also help rejuvenate and detoxify the organs for a healthier system.

Steps

Consult your doctor before starting a kidney cleansing fast. Depending on your current health conditions, it may not be safe. A kidney cleansing fast can also affect medication absorption.

Reduce the amount of food you eat a few days before your kidney cleansing fast. This will give your body time to adjust and will be easier once you start the cleanse.

Determine how much water you should consume each day. As part of the fast, you should consume half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should aim to drink 100 ounces per day.

Drink only water for 3 days, as well as organic vegetable or fruit juice, or even herbal tea. No food is allowed during this time.

Consider adding a pinch of Himalayan salt-up to 1/4 teaspoon-to every 10 ounces of water. While fruit juice and teas are fine to drink during your kidney cleansing fast, avoid alcohol and caffeine.

Combat potassium and electrolyte loss by drinking a vegetable broth.

Combine potato and carrot peels, chopped beets, onion, garlic cloves, celery and dark green leafy vegetables. Add water and simmer for more than one hour.

Include the broth in your kidney fasting cleanse by drinking it 2 or 3 times a day during the fast. Throw away the vegetables and do not eat them during your cleanse.

Eat watermelon at the end of your kidney cleanse to further your treatment. Experts suggest that eating 2 large organic watermelons will help empty toxins from your kidneys.

Continue to ease out of the fast slowly, eating raw fruits and vegetables for a few days after you break the fast and before returning to your regular diet.

Glyconutrients – the key to a long and healthy life

The most important discovery for your immune system in the last 100 years is something called glyconutrients. Science and medicine have long tried to understand the code by which the cells in the body communicate with one another in order for its complex functions to occur. For example, how does your digestive system know which food components to absorb into the blood stream and which to ignore?  Or which cells to attack and destroy and which to protect and nurture?  That code has now been broken.  This role is undertaken by glyconutrients.

Glyconutrients are plant carbohydrates (monosaccharides). There are over 200 carbohydrates or sugars but only 8 are essential to bodily function.

These are:

•xylose

•fucose

•galactose

•glucose

•mannose

•N-acetylglucosamine

•N-acetylgalactosamine

•N-acetylneuraminic acid (a sialic acid).

 

These 8 essential glyconutrients combine with other molecules eg proteins and lipids, to form glycoforms or glycoconjugates which coat cell surfaces. When they combine with protein molecules, they form glycoproteins that coat the surface of every cell with a nucleus in the human body. When glyconutrients bind with lipids (fats) they form glycolipids which also adhere to the cell surface.

 

Glyconutrients are the key to effective cellular communication and proper cell function. This has been established by the world’s leading scientists and researchers.

 

Glyconutrients are not vitamins, minerals, amino acids or enzymes, but are in a class of their own as nutritional supplements derived from plants. Glyconutritional supplements are formulated based on new understanding in the biochemistry of how the human body maintains health at the cellular level. Healthy cells lead to healthy tissue – healthy tissue leads to healthy organs – and healthy organs lead to healthy bodies.

 

Every cell in our body – all 600 trillion of them – needs glyconutrients.

 

Despite the relatively recent discovery of glyconutrients and their functions, medical doctors and the general public are becoming increasingly aware of their importance in treating underlying causes of disease and in maintaining good health. As good as allopathic medicine is, it simply has NO answer to the increasing incidence of auto-immune diseases, cancers and degenerative diseases in Western societies.  Glyconutrients will soon become a part of standard care by medical practitioners for all auto-immune diseases, cancers, and degenerative diseases.  A glyconutritional approach gets at the root cause rather than treating only the symptoms.

 

Glyconutrients are however only part of what is necessary to a healthy body. Other important scientific discoveries of the past century highlight the importance of a range of other dietary or lifestyle factors including vitamins, minerals, fibre, water, essential fatty acids, essential amino acids, antioxidants, and exercise.

The laws of health

When confronted with a health challenge, whether a loss of energy or a medically diagnosed, chronic condition label, it is important that you understand what you are dealing with.

Every cell in the body is like a little battery. Every organ, gland and system in your body is made up of cells. In order for your body to function healthily, you must have full cellular power.

If any part of the body shows signs of pain, degeneration, illness or disease, then it’s not the part or system that is affected, it’s the cells in the part or system that are affected.

Every cell needs oxygen to convert glucose into ATP. ATP is the cell fuel or energy that maintains a delicate mineral balance in and around your cells. It’s this delicate balance that accounts for the electrical potential of your cells, without it you are powerless.

In order to get oxygen and remain healthy, your cells must be in a Living, Dry state. If the Living, Dry state is altered you will experience pain, degeneration, illness and disease and ultimately death.

Only one thing can alter the Living, Dry state and that is trapped blood protein. Trapped blood protein pulls water out of the blood stream, reducing the energy field and altering the Living, Dry state.

This only happens when you break the Pure Laws of Health.

The laws are:

1.         Everybody must work…optimal health relies completely upon circulation – the circulation of the blood to deliver essential ‘groceries’ and the circulation of the lymph to ‘do the dishes’. While movement is fundamental to good circulation, it is primarily through breathing that constant flow is maintained.

2.         Don’t argue quarrel or fight…don’t stress yourself physically, emotionally or mentally. Stress is like a shock to the system, it dilates your blood vessels causing massive blood protein loss.

3.         Don’t defile your body . . . if you put anything unnatural into your body you are quite literally poisoning yourself. Make sure that the food you eat is nourishing your body. Even the healthiest body is susceptible to environmental toxins as well as having its own metabolic waste; therefore it must also regularly be cleared, through cleansing.

In conclusion, in the Wet state, four primary conditions arise that lead to every diagnosed symptom of pain, degeneration, illness, disease and ultimately death.

These are oxygen deprivation, dehydration, acidity and nutrient deficiency.

Affirmations are powerful

affirmationThe foundations of a change process are:

  • Meditation
  • Affirmation
  • Creative change/creative visualisation/goal setting

Remember the sub conscious mind can’t differentiate between fact and fiction so….

Thought – create a picture of what you want/how you want to feel

Dream it

Be it

BE – DO – HAVE

How do we do that?

We think of what we want, then we do what we need to do to get it and we leave the being(ourselves) out of it…Its about action not over thinking.

Affirmations are a powerful confirmation of a manifestation. Be aware to use positive affirmations and you can also combine EFT (tapping) if you want.

Lastly remember…What we resist, persists!

Some sources of good affirmations to get you started:

Louise Hay’s “You Can Heal Your Life” Affirmation Tool Kit

Try incorporating these into your daily routine and track the changes that occur in each area.

Self
I am one with the power that created me, and this power has given me the power to create my own circumstances.
I am loving and lovable, and I find love everywhere.
All is well in my world.

Relationships
I live in harmony and balance with everyone I know.
I love myself; therefore I attract loving people into my life.
I release the past and therefore I am free to love fully in the present.

Health and Wellness
I listen with love to my body’s messages.
I am healthy, whole and complete.
I feel the vibrant wellness in my body increase every day.

Prosperity
I am blessed beyond my fondest dreams.
I am one with the creative power of the universe, and this connection brings me fulfillment and abundance.
I learn from every experience, and everything I touch is a success.
