Long Term Health Conditions

The majority of people who come to me have long term (chronic) health conditions.  They typically display an array of symptoms that, whilst not life threatening, can be extremely debilitating and stop them from enjoying life to the full.  

These are usually nagging symptoms that we all learn to live with and don’t realise how much they are impacting our wellbeing until they are no longer there. Chronic disease doesn’t just happen; it is usually the result of an accumulation of factors over the years that slowly chip away at the body’s immune system until it is unable to cope.  

The diagram below (by authors Drs Graeme & Lilian Munro-Hall) outlines the origins of chronic disease and lists factors behind it, e.g. chemicals, drugs, pollution, pesticides and dental metals, to name but a few.  

To the list I would add emotional trauma caused by events such as bereavement and divorce, and physical and emotional trauma caused by injuries.

Kinesiology aims to identify, address and remove the root cause factors of chronic disease, then help support the body back to health.
