What is a Substance Reaction (Allergy)?
Depending on which source you listen to there are many different definitions for the body's lack of recognition of a food or other substance.
Drawing from the definition developed in Health Kinesiology...
Substance Reactions or allergies are an altered energy response (disturbance) at the BioEnergetic tissue level. Tolerance is a metabolic issue – how much of a substance can the body handle at any given time without reacting to it, again at a BioEnergetic level.
This means the smallest grain or particle will be enough to disturb your body's natural energy system if you have an allergy to it.
The disturbance in the energy system could result in any number of reactions which can occur immediately or up to 72hrs after the exposure, and this can apply to the creation or exacerbation of any symptom in the body.
Contact me to find out what changes you might experience in response to this altered energy response. In fact almost anything might be affected by this response.
By using Kinesiology methods, we are not just looking at isolated aspects of your energy system, so we can often identify issues that are affecting parts of your system that conventional allergy testing may miss.
For example the type of Immunoglobulin's that would be triggered by a scratch or skin prick allergy test or not the same as those which would give primary response to respiratory or digestive allergic response. So a scratch test for food or airborne allergens is only revealing if you would react if the substances are injected into the bloodstream, making it an inaccurate series of test results.
This is only the tip of the iceberg of what Kinesiology can do for your well-being.
Epigenetic Body Typing
As part of the service of allergy testing, I also include an Epigenetic Body Type test. This is an assessment developed by Chris Astill-Smith of Epigenetics-International to assess what the general genetic predisposition of a person is. There are only 3 general types, but they give us a great deal of orientating information regarding a persons predisposition for diet and lifestyle. This is a little like being able to say with a certain degree of certainty, what type of fuel your engine is best running on, but also how you should consume it and what factors are most likely to have a detrimental impact on the body. Substances that are an inherent problem for your body type, are not likely to show as allergy or low tolerance, as they are a genetic predisposition to poor metabolisation and so don't fit so neatly within the definition of an allergy or low tolerance and can therefore be missed by other testing protocols.
By completing the test, we are able to not only highlight what substances your typology is most likely to be having problems with, but it gives you a guide as to what types of nutrients, herbs and oils are best to have in the diet to support optimum epigenetic functioning, reducing the likelihood of genetic issue expressing themselves as you understand what are the risk and support factors for your type.
I have found this to make a significant difference in the health and well being for many of my clients.
