Patricia at Sligo Kinesiology checks if food intolerance is the cause of tight musclesOver the past year I have tested many people for food sensitivities or food intolerance.  They come to me because they have ongoing digestive symptoms such as cramps, bloating, constipation etc. They have usually been to see a doctor who could not find any medical problem. Using muscle testing and vials I will be able to tell which food does not agree with the client. When people avoid this food item their symptoms normally improve very quickly.  I can also check to see if the clients needs to take supplements to support the digestive system. Rather than having to take lots of different products I find out which one what will work best.

Another issue that people do not associate with food intolerance is muscle cramping,  and sore joints. When somebody is sensitive to a particular food it may not always effect the digestive system.  It can cause inflammation in other parts of the body such as the skin, muscles and joints.  This gets worse when the body is under pressure such as during exercise.  Some people who take part in sporting activities find they have constant muscle tightness in the lower body. Tight quads, hamstrings and glutes are common. People may get temporary relief by massage, stretching and other treatments. If however the root cause is food intolerance this relief is short lived.  Removing even one food item from the diet can make a huge difference in flexibility and range of motion. This can happen within a few weeks as the muscles re-set to normal tone. I have had several clients for whom this was the case but with different foods. For some it was the protein part of dairy, for others lactose, gluten or even oats.  If this is of interest and you would like to book an appointment please get in touch using the contact form on this website or call/text Patricia 086-8138963
