You may have seen March 20th was “International Day of Happiness” and many life coaches and some therapists were posting about the “pursuit of happiness.” I considered whether I should write about happiness as my blog post. Kinesiology can help with many things, but would I go as far as saying it can support you in the pursuit of happiness? I am far from wanting to give a conclusive answer to this… But, it is important to note that we all perceived happiness differently. For me happiness is my health, sense of wellbeing and a vitality that allows me to enjoy all aspects of daily life.
Many of us find we are either too busy or are so used to an unbalanced state of being that we have forgotten how it feels when every part of our body is in equilibrium! So, in effect we are used to being in a state where it is difficult for our body to feel happy (whatever that “happy” may be for the individual.) Kinesiology helps bring the body into a state of balance, and therefore creates an optimum environment or status for us to be able to experience “happiness.”
In clinic, the majority of cases of mood swings are related to the digestive system whether it is nutrients not being absorbed, sugar addictions, deficiencies and the need of supplements in the diet, or even food intolerances.
Emotions and traumas trapped in the body, can manifest at physical level, highly affect our happiness as well as mood. Cranial imbalances can play a role in the mood of a person too.
The list above is not exhaustive and of course, there are other causes too and each individual has their own blue print – their own personal story, life experience and own uniqueness. So it can be very difficult understanding and addressing what is causing a mood imbalance. However, Kinesiology helps me go to the root of the problems and work in priority. Working in priority simply means that I respond to what the body is showing me it needs addressed, in the order and priority that the body identifies the issue to me.
I have two examples:
A gentleman who was experiencing mood swings and troubled thoughts came to me, at the time I believe it was mainly because he was encouraged to seek help by his wife.
In the very first session I checked his digestion system and discovered his stomach enzymes were very low. Once tested what type/brand of probiotics were relevant for him, I continued balancing his digestive system including the ICV or Ileo Ceacal Valve (I will explain this in another blog). The outcome? He left re-energised and his wife texted me a few days afterwards saying that he was doing things she had been asking for months and he was happier and free of negative thoughts.
Another case, a young mum called saying that she was getting paranoid. Having suffered from depression in the past she was panicking. I tested her digestive system and endocrine systems for any imbalances but what revealed itself was what we define “structural” imbalance and to be precise her Cerebellum needed attention. After balancing it, once more she left very happy and again refocused on her life. She was an extremely happy client and she reserved a session for her mum and even bought a session for her sister too.
As these two client’s cases show, we are all very different and there is no one case identical to another’s, even when similar or even identical symptoms are exhibited. This demonstrates the importance of being looked at and treated as a unique individual – something that I always do in my kinesiology practice.
