We can all benefit from a healthy balanced diet because what we eat, digest and absorb are so important to our overall health and well-being. If we eat a diet lacking in nutrients our body can become out of balance. Our diet can also be responsible for allergies, sensitivities or intolerance’s and it can be difficult to identify the cause.
Food sensitivity can cause our gut stress and generally, the sensitivity is the outcome of a weakened immune system. Alongside a food sensitivity, there are many other factors that can upset our digestive system. These factors include a poor diet, eating too quickly and/or in stressful environments, eating too much or too little or not having enough digestive enzymes to support digestion.

A Food Sensitivity Testing Appointment
One of the wonderful things about Kinesiology is that we can use muscle testing to discover which foods you are sensitive to and we can also identify which foods benefit you. Food sensitivity testing is performed with the use of test vials or you can provide samples of the foods you wish to be tested.
Using simple muscle testing we can quickly identify what foods are causing you problems. You might be surprised to know that these could include healthy foods. We are all different and what one person may be sensitive to another is not.
Once a particular food or foods are identified, Kinesiology techniques are used to de-stress and strengthen your body. A treatment plan is devised to support you which may include dietary advice and nutritional supplements.
Food Sensitivity Testing is best completed as part of your Kinesiology appointment as we will have the opportunity to complete a full balance and discover what could be triggering your sensitivity. A number of simple techniques will be used to support your body’s healing process.
Should you prefer Food Sensitivity Testing can be completed as a stand-alone session.
