Back in 2011, I was diagnosed with a subclinical autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s; autoimmune hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid. I have always believed that symptoms are the body's way of telling us what's wrong and that the body has an innate ability to heal itself given the right support. That's why I wanted to understand WHY and WHAT might have been the trigger to my body attacking my thyroid so that I could heal over time and get the condition into remission.
I began doing extensive research into Hashimoto's and autoimmune diseases in general because I wanted to understand the triggers and how to reverse them. Autoimmunity is complex, yet there are some commonalities and themes in the triggers and it IS reversible with the right, whole person centred approach.
I first began working with a Kinesiologist in 2015 with the aim of understanding what was the root cause of autoimmunity in my case. I wanted to learn how to bring my body back to it's natural state of 'balance' (homeostasis) so that it could begin to self heal.
When the body is in balance it can heal itself naturally; that is what our bodies are designed to do...think of how a scab forms and heals our skin when we cut ourselves and how all of our cells are completely renewed every 7 years! The human body is simply amazing!
My own healing journey, and having now supported hundreds of people on their own journeys, is proof enough to me that every illness, condition, niggle, ache or pain has a ROOT CAUSE and that 'where it is, it isn't'! That is to say that the root cause will almost always be somewhere entirely different to where the pain is felt. For example, a lot of shoulder and neck issues stem from imbalances in the stomach energy centre.
Pinpointing the root cause is where the magic is at; I always treat the CAUSE of a client's imbalance, not the SYMPTOM because in doing so, the body heals the trigger and the symptoms start to disappear.
Any healing journey is like peeling the layers of an onion. It takes time and patience to allow the body to do its' thing and heal naturally.
By following all of the advice I was given and through the muscle testing used in Kinesiology, I was able to listen to what my body was telling me and focus on the priority areas. I needed to make some lifestyle changes to better manage overwhelm and my stress levels. I also needed to work on the level of emotional health to release past stresses. In doing so, my health and wellbeing vastly improved and my body started to heal itself from the root.
From my own experience of Kinesiology, and that of my family (my daughter had eczema that cleared through kinesiology and my husband had IBS), I continue to be in awe of this truly holistic therapy. That is why I trained to become a Kinesiology Practitioner and I can't wait to help support you and your family too!
