While we all know that muscle can regenerate after strain or injury, muscle loss related to aging, known as sarcopenia, is a different kind of problem. Sarcopenia occurs gradually after age 40, typically leading to a 30-50% decrease in muscle mass by age 80. Research on how this process occurs and how to slow it down has identified a number of contributing factors. Read More
So named in the 17th century after cellula or the tiny rooms used by monks, cells are what all life on Earth is made of. All plants and animals are made of cells, and they are the living foundations of the specialized tissues and organs that they rely on for survival. There are over a hundred different cells in the human body, and they all consist of an outer plasma membrane, nucleus and cytoplasm populated by fibres, membranes and organelles (only blood cells do not contain nuclei and certain organelles such as mitochondria).
A “fluid mosaic model” of the membrane developed in the 1970s offers an understanding of its sophisticated and complex mechanics.
Alzheimer's Disease has long been associated with the accumulation of amyloid-beta proteins and intracellular tangles in the brain that lead to nerve death, cognitive decline and memory loss. However, research published in 2016 revealed that a subtype of Alzheimer’s disease, “type 3 (cortical)” is primarily the “result of exposure to specific toxins, and is most commonly inhalational (IAD), a phenotypic manifestation of chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS), due to biotoxins such as mycotoxins.” Read More
Nutritionists who use muscle testing in their practice can access profoundly relevant information that can provide useful guidance and direction. Using basic techniques like O-ring muscle testing, practitioners can explore many factors that can affect digestion and intestinal function. Read More
Multipliers can be used to help deliver more targeted and potentially more effective clearing of stressor frequencies in the context of a kinesiology treatment. Learn more about how to use them with other vials in your kit library. Read More
During these challenging times, it is perhaps helpful to look at how our nervous system has evolved to adapt to challenges and stress.
Psychologist Dr. Stephen Porges provides a theory he has developed regarding the hierarchical nature of our autonomic responses via the vagus nerve complex to challenges and danger.
We live in the Age of Aluminum, according to Dr. Chris Exley, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University, Staffordshire. Aluminum is everywhere, every day. It is used in building materials, cars, pots and pans, frozen food containers, cans, utensils and more. It is in drinking water, in our food, medicines and in the air. Although most aluminum leaves the body, what is not excreted can have long term consequences. What can we do? Read More
Humans have known for long time about the deceptively simple power of poking, pressing or tapping on key body points to achieve changes in the body energy systems.
Although scientific evidence of this network of channels is still lacking, clinical experience suggests that this bio-circuitry is a powerful and important part of the human body, and that kinesiology can be used to access and intervene in this human operating system. It is an exciting field of exploration.
Vitamins are essential organic compounds we need in small amounts for a range of functions. Vitamin C, for example, is essential for cell respiration and energy production. Unknown until the first part of the 20th century, deficiency in this water-soluble vitamin resulted in scurvy, the scourge of the British navy. By the end of the 18th century, a doctor had connected the poor starchy diets of the sailors and the illness but it wasn’t until 1928 that the compound responsible for helping prevent it was isolated by Hungarian scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi (1893-1986).

Dr. William Tiller walks a line between orthodox science and metaphysics in his fascinating work on human potential – of which we seem only to have scratched the surface. Our thoughts and intentions when paired with focus and emotion are powerful. Read More
The study of quanta, the smallest possible ‘particles’ such as photons of light, ran into a problem in 1935. Physicists including Albert Einstein were unable to explain how such particles separated by large distances could still ‘know’ and respond to what was happening to each other. It violated the principle of locality. Read More
Sarcodes were developed in the 1830s using the proving method, in which a group of healthy subjects take a homeopathic remedy and observe and document its effects. These remedies were created using healthy tissue from the organs and glands of humans and animals, and the 30x dilution is one of the standard potencies that have been used worldwide for decades.
