NATUROPATHY is an effective and safe treatment for a wide range of health disorders. Emphasis is placed on treating the cause of a disorder rather than just the symptoms, and disfunction is corrected using therapeutic remedies that do not have harmful side-effects. The result is to provide lasting effects.

A good naturopath spends time taking a thorough history, listening, and if necessary, conducting diagnostic examinations & an iridological assessment. The underlaying causes contributing to the disorder are identified, and most efficient and effective treatment is determined. Lifestyle changes and natural medicines, such as homeopathics, herbs and nutritional supplements are selected according to what is most appropriate for the patient. These are therapeutic remedies that when correctly prescribed; ease discomfort, bring balance to body functions and enhance physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

KINESIOLOGY in Australia is used to describe the application of muscle testing within a philosophy or set of protocols to achieve certain results. The results obtained are used in combination with muscle testing to determine what the person requires to assist them back to a healthy state of well being (Verity, 1999 p.13). Firstly, there needs to be a distinction between the terms ‘Kinesiology’ and ‘Muscle Testing’. “Kinesis” comes from a Greek word meaning motion and “ology” referring to the study of a science. “Muscle Testing’ is a reference to the actual use of applying pressure to a muscle to check for a change of response in the muscle. Muscle testing is a diagnostic tool used to evaluate disturbances of the musculoskeletal system where a certain stimuli are used to challenge to monitor how the muscles will react.

Muscle testing itself, is a verification tool that shows how well a person adapting to reaction’s in Life that may cause them stress. I like to call it more of a distress, as breathing can be seen as a stress for some, however when we are finding it difficult to deal with an issue, problem or event in life and cannot seem to find the answers, we relate to this as a distress. Monitoring the muscles does not measure the muscle strength of a person; it monitors the neurological response through the central nervous system via the musculoskeletal system. It gives an indication of the person’s response or reaction to whatever the stimuli is, by sending signals along the nervous system between the brain and the rest of the body, thus creating a feedback loop. This feedback loop is constantly monitoring what changes are occurring on the inside and outside of a person. How a person learns to protect can create conflicts between the behavioural and inherited references, which could suggest how a person creates an illness in the first place.

Monitoring the muscles, manually can be an effective tool, however, if someone is untrained or unaware of this discipline, some inaccuracy may appear. Some muscles are easier than others to muscle test, so muscle activity as a triad of health is what we are studying and how it affects our structure, mentally, emotionally and physically. Kinesiology uses various techniques to verify information, such as a “Pretest”. This is a method, where a set of techniques are applied to a specific muscle to monitor its response, called an indicator muscle. Why we monitor the indicator muscle independently, is to make sure that there are no problems with the function the muscle, as they could have damaged a tendon or nerve, which may affect the results of the muscle test when accessing further information via their nervous system. If it is functioning accurately to the pretests then, this indicator muscle can be used monitor further information. Pretests are techniques, which are only one of hundreds of methods, which the kinesiologist applies whilst muscle testing. The methods are used as references to gathered information and develop a picture of how a person wants assistance in returning to a balanced state of health.

Michele uses the various modalities in kinesiology ranging from Educating Alternatives, Neuro-Organised Techniques (N.O.T), Touch for Health, Three in One, PKP and many more.
