"The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well."
Muscle testing is a noninvasive way of evaluating the body for imbalances and assessing its needs. Our muscles can become stronger or weaker in response to many internal and external influences. The general strength or weakness provides information on energy flow within the body which is based on traditional Chinese medicine. Modern medicine has shown that electrical energy flows through nerves to every cell in the body. An example of energy flow has been demonstrated by the electrocardiograph machine which provides a graphic recording from the bodies' surface of the electric currents generated by the heart.
Muscle testing is performed by applying slight pressure to an outstretched arm and assessing the strength of the muscle response. Almost any muscle can be used for testing but the arm is the most convenient. The person being tested stands with one arm held out to the side at shoulder level with elbow straightened. The practitioner then applies slight pressure downward at the wrist while the person resists. While the practitioner touches various AcuPoints on the bodies' surface, the arm should remain strong if there are no imbalances.
If weakness is found, various substances can be tested at that particular point to see if it can be strengthened. All substances (food, nutritional supplements, herbs, homeopathic remedies, chemicals, vaccines, etc.) have an electromagnetic charge & are capable of affecting the human body in a negative or positive way by interaction with the bodies' own electromagnetic charge. This is much like the effect of two magnets being brought together. If the North end & the South end of each come close together they attract but if two North ends are brought together they repel. In the case of muscle testing, if the body is deficient in a nutrient and is needed by a particular organ that is being tested, placing that substance on that AcuPoint will strengthen the arm.
