So what's the info on Muscle testing?

Ok I thought it appropriate to label Muscle testing or otherwise known as "Applied Kinesiology" as my next post. Muscle testing is something I've been doing for several years and it has been most beneficial for me and my health. You must be balanced, and the person testing you must be balanced. *Balanced- meaning: having positive energy. The way you can be balanced is by having healthy food consumed earlier having positive feelings towards the people around you (no HATE feelings).

My husband who grew up in the medical ways doesn't feel he believes it until he has more proof on the subject, so his "non-believing" has made him unable to muscle test or be muscle tested at the present moment. Until he can believe it and have a positive attitude toward it, it will fail every time. (You know it fails when you get inaccurate results)

The information below is from a link I found, explaining a little more about how muscle testing works.

"Muscle testing is also referred to as Applied Kinesiology. Chiropractors use it to find which parts of the body need adjustment, and to check if an adjustment has been successfully made. They use it combined with elaborate knowledge of the skeletal and musculatory system. If one touches certain key points of the body and at the same time tests if a certain muscle is weak or strong, that can indicate if that key point needs correction or not.

The interesting thing is that muscle testing works just as well on mental or emotional issues as on physical body parts. Basically one can put one's attention on something and then test for a weak or strong response. That is something we can use.

See, the body is not as much of a liar as the conscious mind is. It is much more likely to give an honest assessment of what is going on than the person's analytical thinking is. The body will give answers to things that are submerged and unknown to the conscious processes, and it will give answers without being biased by wishful thinking or social maneuvering.

Many different muscles could be used for the test. The easiest is usually to use the big deltoid muscles or the arms. The client stretches one arm straight out in front of her, or straight out to the side. The facilitator instructs her to resist and then presses down on the arm. And she notices if the arm holds up to being pressed down, or if it gives in and becomes weak. There is a certain knack to sensing it, but once one has got it, it is a very finite sign.

One would pick a muscle that tests strong when we don't put attention on anything in particular. Then we will know that it means something when it tests weak when we bring up particular subjects.

There are much more elaborate systems of using and interpreting muscle testing. Different muscles seem to correspond to different organs along the lines of the meridians. If you want to study and use that, that could be useful, but it is beyond the scope of what we get into here. We simply find a muscle that is usually strong and we agree with the person that it will be our test. This agreement becomes to governing factor.

Basically, strong means "Yes" and weak means "No". Whether a Yes or a No answer is most desirable depends on what we ask for, but most often we will ask in such a way that a strong response is good. As in "Do you feel good about yourself" - Test - should be strong, meaning "Yes". If it is weak, we could then work on the issue of feeling good about oneself, with our usual processing techniques. And then, when we appear to have gotten somewhere, we could do a muscle test again to confirm it. If it is now strong when we ask the same question, then we have probably done a good job.

Muscle testing is a very finite way of testing. If nothing else, it appears very finite to the client. It provides a very tangible and convincing "proof" to the client that we have actually gotten a result. The client can much more easily invalidate purely mental and emotional results. Even if she feels good and she has found out something new, she might still convince herself a few days later that it was "just" something she imagined. But if we have tested it and we both realized that what used to be weak is now strong, that might weigh a lot more heavily in the favor of accepting the change that took place.

The muscles really do react to what one thinks and feels and imagines. But the test it fairly honest and unbiased. Whereas a purely analytical assessment of what one feels might not be as honest." -----> Link to these quotes- Click here

So a way for you to know if you're getting accurate results is if the person who is testing you says "Your name is "Sue" and it's not "Sue" it's "Molly" Then your hand should feel weak and when the person pushes on your arm you can not hold it up. Then if they say "Your name is "Molly" *BINGO, they push on your arm and it is strong!! they can't push it down.

Now the purpose is to get "in tune" with what you (feel). You're not doing it right, if when the person is testing and says "Sue" that you try and hold it up as much as you possibly can, knowing that your arm is weak. Let your body guide. You can "FEEL" the weakness and you will let it naturally fall, when you feel it will fall.

Some of you might ask "ok, so what do you use it for exactly?" Well it is supposed to be a way of figuring out your health problems and testing to see what herbs or anything is best to help that situation. You can also ask "how much to take" such as 1 capsule, 2, 3, 4x's a day. You keep asking until you get the right amount, and when your arm drops, you've gone too far, so take the last amount that resulted in a "positive" test.

Wheatgrass of course!

Here is the first post! Yay!

Our first topic is about Wheatgrass. This is something I've been looking into a lot lately. I have a list here of 40 of the benefits of using wheatgrass::
Here is the link to the website CLICK-HERE.

1 Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available.

2 Chlorophyll is the first product of light and, therefore, contains more light energy than any other element.

3 Wheatgrass juice is a crude chlorophyll and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without toxic side effects.

4 Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life.

5 Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment.

6 Chlorophyll is anti-bacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.

7 Dr. Bernard Jensen says that it only takes minutes to digest wheatgrass juice and uses up very little body energy.

8 Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.

9 Chlorophyll (wheatgrass) rebuilds the bloodstream. Studies of various animals have shown chlorophyll to be free of any toxic reaction. The red cell count was returned to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be extremely anemic or low in red cell count.

10 Farmers in the Midwest who have sterile cows and bulls put them on wheatgrass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)

11 Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 elements needed by man. If grown in organic soil, it absorbs 92 of the known 102 minerals from the soil.

12 Wheatgrass has what is called the grass-juice factor, which has been shown to keep herbivorous animals alive indefinitely.

13 Dr. Ann Wigmore and institutes based on her teachings has been helping people get well from chronic disorders for 30 years using wheatgrass.

14 Liquid chlorophyll gets into the tissues, refines them and makes them over.

15 Wheatgrass Juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables. Dr Earp-Thomas, associate of Ann Wigmore, says that 15 pounds of Wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrot, lettuce, celery, and so forth.

16 Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.

17 Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body.

18 Chlorophyll helps purify the liver.

19 Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.

20 In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll: to clear up foul smelling odors, neutralize Strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases.21 Wheatgrass Juice cures acne and even help to remove scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. The diet must be improved at the same time.

22 Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.

23 A small amount of wheatgrass juice in the human diet helps prevents tooth decay.

24 Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches. It pulls poisons from the gums.

25 Gargle Wheatgrass Juice for a sore throat.

26 Drink Wheatgrass Juice for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis.

27 Wheatgrass Juice keeps the hair from graying.

28 Pyorrhea of the mouth: lay pulp of wheatgrass soaked in juice on diseased area in mouth or chew wheatgrass, spitting out the pulp.

29 By taking Wheatgrass Juice, one may feel a difference in strength, endurance, health, and spirituality, and experience a sense of well-being.

30 Wheatgrass juice improves the digestion.

31 Wheatgrass juice is high in enzymes.

32 Wheatgrass juice is an excellent skin cleanser and can be absorbed through the skin for nutrition. Pour green juice over your body in a tub of warm water and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water.

33 Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs. After an enema, wait 20 minutes, then implant 4 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Retain for 20 minutes.

34 Wheatgrass juice is great for constipation and keeping the bowels open. It is high in magnesium.

35 Dr. Birscher, a research scientist, called chlorophyll "concentrated sun power." He said, "chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs."

36 According to Dr. Birscher, nature uses chlorophyll (wheatgrass) as a body cleanser, rebuilder, and neutralizer of toxins.

37 Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.

38 Wheatgrass Juice reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries.

39 Wheatgrass Juice can remove heavy metals from the body.

40 Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds
