You've probably experienced muscle testing at some point in your life.
Typically it involves someone pushing down on your arm or trying to pull your fingers apart, while you are in the presence of something you're muscle testing for, like a suspected allergenic food placed in your mouth or a bracelet on your wrist or even an emotional trigger like another person in the room.
If you test weak, you're supposedly “sensitive” to that item, food, person, etc.
And if you test strong, it supposedly is good for you.
I really didn't understand how muscle testing works (and kind of viewed it as more of a “party trick”) until I had today's conversation with Dr. Kenneth Best, D.C., a Los Angeles chiropractor who specializes in something called “Applied Kinesiology “.
During our talk, I ask Dr. Best:
-What is muscle testing?
-How does it work?
-How do you learn how to do it?
-Are there different types of muscle testing?
-Has it been proven by science?
-What kind of things is it used for?
When you listen, you're going to find out how you can go get muscle testing for identifying basic nutrition deficiencies you might have and even have yourself test for more advanced body dysfunctions such as:
- Myofascial adhesions
- Peripheral nerve entrapment
- Spinal segmental misalignments
- Neurologic degeneraton
- Damaged autonomic nervous system
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Toxic chemical influences
- Dysfunction in production or circulation of cerebrospinal fluid
- Adverse mechanical tension in the nerve cell membranes
- Meridian system imbalance
- Lymphatic and vascular impairment
Here's the interview:
Dr. Best mentions “The International College of Applied Kinesiology” during our interview, which is a really good resource if you want to geek out on muscle testing more, learn how to do muscle testing yourself, or find someone who is qualified to muscle test you.
In addition, as I mention during the audio, I actually sent Dr. Best my Superhuman Encoder wristband to test, and the video below shows muscle testing of the wristband in action (yes, I agree the hypnotist lady in the video comes off as pretty cheesy, but it's still a helpful way to see how this stuff works).
In the video, pay close attention to the part where it shows what happens when you're wearing the Encoder and using electronics or things that produce an electromagnetic field. I thought that part was very interesting, since I spend lots of time on a computer or with a smartphone.
