General Health

Adopting a healthy and active approach to living will benefit everyone. An active lifestyle and proper diet combined, directly leads to better health. Health may be defined as a total state of balance between our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies and not merely by the absence of sickness.

Below are some of the many general health issues that can be dealt with efficiently through the use of Kinesiology:

Confidence/Self Esteem Issues


What is Self Confidence?

Self confidence is related to self-esteem, but it's a little bit different. Self confidence has to do with how confident or assured you feel in a new or challenging situation.

If you generally think that you can take on a challenge and succeed, you're doing well in the self-confidence department. If you're feeling intimidated or freaked out and you're not sure you can succeed, your self-confidence could use a bit of a boost.

What Is Self-Esteem?

The word "esteem" has to do with how you feel about something - that is, how worthy or valuable you think it is. So, as you can guess, "self-esteem" has to do with how much you value yourself or how much you feel you're "worth".

Anxiety


What is Anxiety?

Anxiety affects our whole being. It affects how we feel, how we behave and has very real physical symptoms. It feels a bit like fear but whereas we know what we are frightened of, we often don't know what we are anxious about.

Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling - severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating.

Fears/Phobias


What are Fears & Phobias?

Almost everyone has an irrational fear or two. Some get nervous at the thought of needles. Others shriek at the sight of a mouse. Still others get woozy when they look down from tall buildings. For most people, these fears are minor. But for some, these fears are so severe that they cause tremendous anxiety and interfere with normal day-to-day life.

When fears are irrational and disabling, they are called phobias. If you�re living in fear because of your phobia, take hope. You can overcome phobias and fears easily with the help of a well trained Neuroenergetic Kinesiologist.

Panic Attacks


What is a Panic Attack?

Generally, a panic attack happens as a result of extremely heightened anxiety. Any of us have the potential of experiencing a panic attack. However, for those who do not suffer from any anxiety disorder, a panic attack is only likely to happen if triggered by an anxiety-provoking event.

A panic attack can come on very suddenly and have no obvious triggers. Although a panic attack episode may appear at random, they come from our evolutionary response to danger. Having a panic attack is said to be one of the most intensely frightening, upsetting and uncomfortable experiences in a person's life.

Some common symptoms of a panic attack include:

  • Palpitations (racing or pounding heart)
  • Chest pains
  • Stomach upset
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Hot flashes/chills
  • Trembling or shaking

Asthma/Eczema


What is Asthma?

Asthma is a respiratory condition marked by spasms in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It usually results from an allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity. The inside walls of an asthmatic's airways are swollen or inflamed. This swelling or inflammation makes the airways extremely sensitive to irritations and increases your susceptibility to an allergic reaction.

As inflammation causes the airways to become narrower, less air can pass through them, both to and from the lungs.

Symptoms of the narrowing include:

  • Wheezing (a hissing sound while breathing)
  • Chest tightness
  • Breathing problems
  • Coughing

Asthmatics usually experience these symptoms most frequently during the night and the early morning.

What is Eczema?

Eczema, or dermatitis as it is sometimes called, is an inflammatory skin disorder. The severity of this disease can vary. In mild forms the skin is dry, hot and itchy. In the more severe cases, the skin can become broken, raw and bleeds. It is not contagious, but can become very unsightly. Eczema can affect any part of the body. In infants, eczema typically occurs on the forehead, cheeks, forearms, legs, scalp and neck. In children and adults, eczema typically occurs on the face, neck and the insides of the elbows, knees and ankles. Acne & Psoriasis are two other skin conditions that can also be treated effectively with Kinesiology.

Depression


What is Depression?

Depression is a "whole-body" illness, involving your body, mood and thoughts. It affects the way you eat and sleep, the way you feel about yourself and the way you think about things. A depressive disorder is not the same as having "the blues". It is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be willed or wished away. People with a depressive illness cannot merely "pull themselves together" and get better. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months or even years. I have come across so many cases in clinic where depression has lifted in as little as 3 sessions. Kinesiology is certainly a treatment you should consider if you feel you may be suffering from depression.

Arthritis


What is Arthritis?

Arthritis literally means joint inflammation. Arthritis is not a single disease. Arthritis refers to a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints.

The two most common types of arthritis are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Arthritis can affect anyone at any age, including children. The incidence of arthritis increases with age, but nearly three out of every five sufferers are under the age of 65.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, results from wear and tear. The pressure of gravity causes physical damage to the joints and surrounding tissues, leading to:

  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Decreased function

Initially, osteoarthritis is non-inflammatory and its onset is subtle and gradual, usually involving one or only a few joints. The joints most often affected are the:

  • Knees
  • Hips
  • Hands
  • Spine

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis has several special features that make it different from other types of arthritis. For example, rheumatoid arthritis generally occurs in a symmetrical pattern, meaning that if one knee or hand is involved, the other one also is. The disease often affects the wrist joints and the finger joints closest to the hand. It can also affect other parts of the body besides the joints. In addition, people with rheumatoid arthritis may have fatigue, occasional fevers and a general sense of not feeling well.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects people differently. For some people, it lasts only a few months or a year or two and goes away without causing any noticeable damage. Other people have mild or moderate forms of the disease, with periods of worsening symptoms, called flares and periods in which they feel better, called remissions. Still others have a severe form of the disease that is active most of the time, lasts for many years or a lifetime and leads to serious joint damage and disability.

Although rheumatoid arthritis can have serious effects on a person's life and well-being, current Kinesiology treatment strategies and a balance between rest and exercise, allow people living with the disease to lead active and productive lives.

Some common symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis include:

  • Tender, warm, swollen joints
  • Symmetrical pattern of affected joints
  • Joint inflammation often affecting the wrist and finger joints closest to the hand
  • Joint inflammation sometimes affecting other joints, including the:
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles
  • Feet

Chronic Pain


What is Chronic Pain?

Millions of people worldwide suffer from severe back pain every day. The good news is that while some of these conditions are serious and require specialist medical treatment, most back pain and other forms of pain can be relieved and often times eliminated through a much more gentle approach. This is where Kinesiology can help. Each muscle in our body is connected to our brain through the physical and nervous systems. Kinesiology identifies blockages in these systems which prevent the natural healing process and cause pain and discomfort. These blockages may be the result of an emotional trauma, unresolved stress, physical injury, insufficient nutrition in our diet or a number of other factors.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)


What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is the name given to a condition in which people experience repetitive and upsetting thoughts and/or behaviours. OCD has two main features: Obsessions and Compulsions.

Obsessions:

Obsessions can come in the form of involuntary thoughts, images or impulses. Common obsessions include, but are not limited to: fears about dirt, germs and contamination. Inordinate concern with order, arrangement or symmetry. Inability to discard useless or worn out possessions. Fears that things are not safe, especially household appliances. The main features of obsessions are that they are automatic, frequent, upsetting or distressing and difficult to control or get rid of without professional support.

Compulsions:

Just as with obsessions, there are many types of compulsions. It is common for people to carry out a compulsion in order to reduce the anxiety they feel from an obsession. Common compulsions include excessive washing and cleaning, checking, repetitive actions such as counting, arranging and ordering. Acts which reduce obsessional fears (e.g. wearing only certain colours). Compulsions can be observable actions, for example washing, but they can also be mental rituals such as repeating words or phrases, counting or saying a prayer. Again, not all types of compulsions are listed here. The main features of compulsions are they are repetitive and stereotyped actions that the person feels forced to perform. People can have compulsions without having obsessional thoughts but, very often, these two occur together. Carrying out a compulsion reduces the person's anxiety and makes the urge to perform the compulsion again stronger each time.

Learning Disabilities


What are learning disabilities?

Learning disability is a general term that describes specific kinds of learning problems. A learning disability can cause a person to have trouble learning and using certain skills. The skills most often affected are:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Reasoning
  • Maths
