Have you tried kinesiology? What are your experiences?
I’ve been quieter recently on Instagram.
I’ve been struggling with the lack of answers, support, knowledge, & sometimes uncompassionate responses from medical receptionists.
Be kind, be compassionate.
I’ve been trying to be my own health advocate. A friend recommended trying kinesiology & found a local lady.
I had no idea what to expect. The session was to be an hour last Tuesday, it ended up being over an hour & half as the women wanted to find as much information about me as possible in that initial meeting. There is a lot going on!
Eating certain foods have caused me severe pain & nausea. I still have deep infiltrated bowel endo. I was starting to feel hopeless as to what to do concerning my symptoms. I am currently awake at 3am writing this, after been woken up by abdominal & lower back pain, which has caused pulsating pain & stabbing pins & needles. I learnt that in kinesiology, improving digestion is considered one of the most important things we can do to ensure overall wellbeing.
The lady I saw was warm, open & interested in a whole mind & body response, very different to our health care system. Through muscle testing & questions she felt my digestion was off for certain reasons. I’ve been given a two week diet to try & ease my irritated digestion & bowel, which I thought I would share below. I’ve cut many of the mentioned foods out already after my own researching & advice from other endo warriors on Instagram but some came as surprises to me. 🌟Avoid raw food
🌟 Avoid stimulants & irritants: Tea, coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks (I struggle not to have Diet Coke), wheat-based foods, black pepper, curries & highly spiced foods, sugar & refined carbohydrates, coarse cereals, popcorn, peanuts, potato crisps (something else I struggle to give up) & peppers
🌟 Ensure consumption of: Water - 6, 8 glasses daily in between meals (up to a quarter of an hour before, & not until an hour after meals). Live, unsweetened yogurt (preferably goat’s). Chlorophyll in the form of lightly steamed green leafy vegetables.
I will let you know how I get on. Continues in comments... #kinesiology
