“The proof of the pudding is in the eating” meaning: You can only judge the quality of something after you have tried, used or experienced it.
This is statement is so true for Systematic Kinesiology as it is a relatively new therapy in Ireland. I myself was searching for nearly 30 years for a long lasting solution to my lower back pain. I had tried many things with varying degrees of success but I hadn’t found a lasting solution. My back would be fine for a few months only to flare up again if I wasn’t always very careful.
I first heard of Kinesiology about 5 years ago. I did a lot of investigation online and found mixed reviews and many sceptics. Granted those people who were most sceptical had little knowledge about the subject. I am a very logical person so I needed to taste and experience Kinesiology first hand. I got the opportunity to do so at a “Taster Event” in Co Leitrim run by the Academy of Systematic Kinesiology in Ireland. Long before the end of a 90 minute presentation I knew this was the therapy for me. The instructor explained how the whole body is connected physically, emotionally, chemically and energetically. Muscle testing when used correctly can find out exactly where the root cause of a problem actually lies.
The very next day I signed up for the basic foundation course “Balanced Health”. Within 6 months I was studying Systematic Kinesiology at Diploma level. During this time I found the root cause of my lower back problem. It was a simple muscle imbalance which was easy to fix. I also discovered that my uncomfortable tummy cramps and bloating were due mainly to wheat intolerance.
Today I help my own clients with a wide variety of problems. These range from lower back, knee pain, hip, neck and shoulder pain to bloating, skin rashes and phobias. I enjoy the challenge of finding what is really behind somebody’s pain or symptom. People are amazed and delighted that there is a reason for and a solution to aches, pains and discomfort. Many like me had accepted their problem as normal and put up with it for years.
Sceptics will dismiss natural healing methods and therapies as being unscientific. They speak about double blind, placebo controlled studies being the gold standard. True enough such trials are necessary when dealing with potent drugs for acute and serious illness. However for chronic discomfort and pain people don’t need to wait years for scientific evidence to catch up with human experience. When it comes to using Systematic Kinesiology’s gentle and natural healing methods to enhance health the proof of the pudding really is in the eating.
