Kinesiology

The word Kinesiology means Science of Movement which looks at the whole person (not just at selected parts). Kinesiology looks at all types of stresses which can cause disease. They include emotional, nutritional, structural and electrical stress.

The basis of Kinesiology is that the body is like an electrical piece of equipment, which is controlled by an incredibly complex computer, namely the brain. The brain is continually in communication with each of the 639 muscles in the body.

If a muscle is electrically in balance, it is possible to measure a constant electrical signal from the brain to that muscle and back again, much the same as two faxes 'talking' to each other.

However, when the body is overstressed (through a chemical, emotional, structural or electrical cause), the electrical signals in one or more muscles go weak. It is like a fuse in your fusebox blowing. The body figures that it is better to blow a fuse than the whole thing.

This is the basis of muscle testing, which is the main tool used in kinesiology. Once the weakness is located through muscle testing, the kinesiologist then 'talks' to the body. The body can answer "yes" or "no" with a strong or weak muscle. At our Clearwater clinic, we use muscle testing to ask a patient's body any of the following questions:

What caused this muscle to go out of balance? If it was a chemical he can ask the body what specific food or other substance caused the body to go out of balance. If it was a deficiency, he can find out what food will re-strengthen the body. Muscle testing shows whether a particular food weakens, is neutral to, or strengthens a particular body. Every body is different at different times. When a body is well balanced, foods which were previously weakening may become neutral, and neutral foods may become strengthening.

Kinesiology is one of the diagnostic tools we use at LifeWorks and it can help you. Call 727-466-6789 for an appointment.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
