What is Applied Kinesiology?
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. AK, a non-invasive system of evaluating body function that is unique in the healing arts, has become a dynamic movement in health care in its relatively short existence.
The triad of health lists the three basic causes of health problems. They are structural, chemical, and mental, with structure as the base of the triad. Literally, all health problems, whether functional or pathological, are involved with one part or all parts of the triad. This is not new to chiropractic, as its founder, D.D. Palmer states in his text, “The Science, Art, and Philosophy of Chiropractic,” “The determining causes of disease are traumatism, poison and autosuggestion.” AK enables the doctor to evaluate the triad’s functional balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced side or sides.

Homeopathic medicine is used in treating a variety of ailments, including varicose veins. A circulatory issue, varicose veins occur when blood pools and stretches the veins, raising them above the skin’s surface. They are most common in women and tend to be hereditary. A particular concern regarding varicose veins is the weakening of the valves that regulate the flow of blood through the arteries. Untreated, varicose veins can worsen into ulcers and lesions.
A homeopathic approach to this issue involves a close understanding of personality traits and the totality of the person who must be looked at structurally, chemically, and emotionally. A remedy is then chosen which most closely fits the complete picture of the entire symptom complex.
Homeopathic solutions often address holistic core pathways to wellness that differ from a standard symptom-focused medical approach.
