Aims of Applied Kinesiology
The aim of applied kinesiology is to restore the balance of structural, chemical and mental factors which together unite to form the "triad of health". Health is composed of structural, chemical and mental factors which must be equally balanced producing the triad of health. When a person has ill health, at least one of these factors is involved and often two, or all three. The principle of applied kinesiology is to analyse and check all three factors and treat any or all that are disrupted.
An example of this is a person suffering with a long-term intestinal irritation. Nutritional balance in the body will be severely disrupted due to malabsorption problems and possibly long term use of antibiotics. Low back pain will be evident due to the dual nerve supply to the lower back and intestine and there will be stress-related elements that further exacerbate symptoms.
