During the 1960's a new system of evaluation began to develop in chiropractics. Dr. George Goodheart of Detroit, Michigan found that evaluation of normal and abnormal body functions could be accomplished by using muscle tests. Since the original discovery, the principle has been broadened to include evaluation of the nervous, vascular, lymphatic systems, nutritional deficiencies, skeletal weakness or misalignment, muscular spasms or deficiencies, and cerebrospinal function. This new system of diagnosis is called "Applied Kinesiology" or "Muscle Testing". (Systems DC, 1981. "Applied Kinesiology....")

Kinesiology is a new field in orthodox circles, but growing rapidly as with any "new" method, kinesiology has met its share of resistance. Its greatest hindrance to the modern mind is probably the degree of simplicity involved. It provides information that is often not otherwise available even with expensive laboratory tests.

"Amazing." "Inccredible" "I can hardly believe it, but it works." "Fascinating." These are some of the remarks heard by health professionals when a patient is introduced to an applied Kinesiology examination. The following are some reasons why various health professionals use kinesiology.

Chiropractors - to locate dislocations and then ascertain when bones are properly aligned.
Medical Doctors - to test drug compatibility before prescribing.
Veterinarians - by surrogate testing to find nutritional or systemic deficiencies.
Nutritionists - in determining proper diets and supplements for chronically ill patients.
Allergists - in detecting the offending foods or chemicals which must be avoided.
Herbalists - in selecting the most useful herb(s) for a particular situation.

"Within man there is a complex electrical system headed by a computer greater than Xerox and IBM put together, with each cell being a micro transformer/capacitor and even a rudimentary memory chip." (Dr. Paul Shepherd, D.O., FAFM in Healing Energies)

Since kinesiology has been used by every branch of medicine and health, there are thousands of practitioners using this method as part of their evaluation in order to better help patients. There are various skill levels in this blossoming art; those with advanced knowledge and experience will tell you that they would rely on their kinesiology findings before they would believe many of the laboratory tests, including blood tests.

"Not until Applied Kinesiology has there been an approach to accurately understanding the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM, which controls ORGANS."
For instance, the adrenal gland may be over stressed and malfunctioning. Standard tests may not reveal "hypoadrenia" until it becomes Addison's Disease.
"Advancement in Kinesiology in the health evaluation picture provides a better opportunity for finding these 'sub-clinical' conditions. This evaluation also gives the doctors better opportunity to find the exact cause of hypoadrenia" (Systems DC, "Functional Hypoadrenia")
In other words, this means that kinesiology not only lets the doctor find out sub-clinical problems, but it allows him to find the cause of that problem so he/she can correct it before it becomes a full blown health issue.
Dr. Voll, M.D. of Germany has perfected an EAV machine now approved in the U.S. which measures all areas of the autonomic nervous system, or meridian patterns. This machine costs many thousands of dollars, but applied kinesiology does the exact same thing in a simplified form.
