I have many women coming through the clinic that know very little about peri-menopause/menopause and how it affects their bodies. It's encouraging to see that menopause has become a prominent subject in the media, gaining the attention it deserves and educating women on this natural process. However, much of the time the only solution offered by the Dr for symptoms is HRT or anti-depressants. However, Systematic Kinesiology offers natural, wholistic support for peri-menopause, menopause, and … [Read more...] about Natural Support for Peri-Menopause, Menopause and Beyond
A guest blog post written by TASK Graduate, Antonia Beamish (Edited by TASK). I love to write about fear because it can be such a consistent companion in my life without me even realising it’s there. That’s the way fear works, it can be really subtle, hanging out just below the current of consciousness so that we can’t see, feel or hear it. Instead, we’re just blocked in our life but we don’t know why. Tend fears like weeds in a garden Fear takes up sacred space in the garden of our … [Read more...] about Moving Through Fear Toward The Life You Choose

The human body is a complex and intricate system of interconnected parts, each playing a crucial role in maintaining overall health and well-being. One such lesser-known but essential component is the ileocecal valve (ICV). Situated at the junction of the small intestine and the large intestine, this valve regulates the passage of digested food, prevents backflow, and plays a pivotal role in gut health. When the ICV malfunctions, it can lead to discomfort and digestive issues. In this blog, … [Read more...] about Exploring the Ileocecal Valve: How Systematic Kinesiology Can Offer Relief from Ill Health
A guest blog post written by TASK Graduate, Rachael Kennard-Wall (Edited by TASK). So often when I’m treating patients in the clinic with digestive issues I hear them say the same thing. “I’ve tried probiotics and they don’t make any difference, they don’t work." Leaving them despondent. In many circumstances the probiotics were never going to be the right thing for them - We’ll discuss why that is during this blog post. By the end, you will be dutifully informed and much clearer in the … [Read more...] about Should I Be Taking Probiotics?

A guest blog post written by TASK Graduate, Gavin Luck-Jones (Edited by TASK). Many people may think Kinesiology is woo-woo. However, it is SCIENCE and here's why.

From the central nervous system extends billions of threadlike fibres known as nerves. These nerves make up the peripheral nervous system. The two systems work … [Read more...] about Kinesiology is Electric and Empowering
Its been apparent over the years just how many people feel completely invalidated by other people in many or all areas of their life. Invalidated in the work place, from so called friends and yes even with their own family. Invalidation is the rejection or dismissal of our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviours as being valid and understandable. Invalidation can cause significant damage or upset to a person's mental health and well-being. Apart from being and feeling loved the next … [Read more...] about The Invalidation Culture
No, this is not about ancestry! An ancient proverb states: “As a person thinks, in their mind and heart, so they are, or so they become”. What we think about, determines to a large extent who we are. The Power of Choice It is our minds that think. Life presents us with an endless stream of options. To select which of those options to pursue we decide by the ‘POWER of CHOICE’. It is every human being’s greatest power. One often hears a person saying, “I have no choice”. This is … [Read more...] about Who Do You Think You Are?

Clients are very familiar with their Kinesiologist talking about the importance of adequate hydration. Dehydration is the cause of many symptoms: Dehydration and Constipation The times a kinesiologist most commonly discusses the need for hydration with a client is when they are experiencing constipation. A good metaphor to use is something that popped into my head when explaining to a boy a couple of years ago. Have you ever been to a water park? Did you notice how easy it was to go … [Read more...] about The Importance of Hydration and Electrolyte Balance to Health and Wellbeing
As Systematic Kinesiologists we are seeing increasingly more people suffering from food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities that affect them in many different ways.

I have just been teaching The Advanced Communication Training week on our TASK Practitioner Course and we were discussing how sad it is when clients or students arrive with little or no hope and faith over ever getting better. They feel like they may never be free from their debilitating symptoms having ‘tried’ everything. They feel their joy has been sucked out of them as a consequence of nothing working. Receiving a hopeless prognoses leaves people disempowered with their own health. So how … [Read more...] about Restore Hope, Faith and Joy in getting well, with Systematic kinesiology
