  • muscle testing for foods?

    Some guys muscle test their food in order to know if they agree with them, how accurate is MT for foods? Does it work?

    I just googled this -- so you just hold the food item and then decide if your arm feels stronger or weaker than it did when you weren't holding the food? Wow, who came up with that one? ... ah, chiropractors.

      I've been seeing a naturopath for the past month or so for my acne condition. He has used muscle testing to decipher food senstivities, to figure out which of my many supplements are worth taking and to decide what additional herbs to add. For the first time in 10 years I am seeing a difference in my skin condition and I couldn't be happier. Some of this change can be attributed to living more primally but I also believe my naturopath and his unconventional treatment has helped me tremendously. I most definately believe that your body can and will tell you what is or isn't good for it.

        I personally believe it's a crock.

        Had it done years ago by a chiropractor. It found I was intolerant to foods I eat without problems, and tolerant of foods that I'm clearly intolerant to. Following his recommendations had no effect on the condition we were trying to treat (IBS in my case). Then again, the chiropractic care didn't do anything for my back pain either.

        Just do an elimination diet - yeah, it takes a bit longer, but it's much more dependable in the end.

          I'm on the crock end of this too. IMO (and I've done a lot of this), the best way to diagnose food intolerances is to go Primal with no diary or eggs and add any foods back in that you want to test. Simple, effective, and with the added bonus that you will almost certainly start to feel a lot better very quickly.

            I'm happy for you that this is working for you, but do you really think it's the muscle testing and not primarily your naturopath's existing expertise in recommending the proper things for you? Interesting.

              My doc does muscle testing for prescriptions, supplements. I thought I had a great idea in asking him if he could just muscle test me for my food allergies. He said that wouldn't work.

                I love chiropractic but I think kinesiology/muscle testing for food intolerances and other intolerances/allergies is nonsense.

                Complete and utter bunk. Some kid actually did a science project on it one year and demonstrated that the results weren't replicable.

                    That is one of the dumbest things I have heard of.

                      You may notice I use that word a lot, but that it really depends on context.
