One of my favorite parts of utilizing energy medicine with my clients is to see the variety and individuality in creating wellness plans. We are able to look beyond “healthy” and “unhealthy” foods and substances are dive deep into “What does this person need the most? What is most supportive and creates the most overall chi energy?”
My approach is unique in that when I create a nutrition plan, I’m not focusing on counting macros or calories. I’m looking at the ingredients themselves and how those specific foods effect the individual at hand. Of course, there are general statements that can apply to a large population of people. It’s hard to go wrong with eating more fresh organic fruits and vegetables. But just because a carrot is generally considered healthy does not mean that this is the vegetable to bring the individual back to balance and increase overall vitality.
There are so many factors at play. So much, in fact, that it’s impossible to be consciously aware and factor them in when designing a plan. However, our bodies have an innate ability to calculate exactly how it will respond to any given substance and how that response impacts the overall chi energy of the body. This we can verify with simple muscle testing techniques. With practice, I have learned how to identify the strength of the energy, the quality of the energy, and the location of where the energy strengthens or weakens the body the most. If you are new to the concept of energy medicine, I find demonstration to be most helpful as words alone are insufficient in understanding this concept. It is something that must be felt.
Recently, I was testing an individual who is struggling with a sugar addiction. He did a sugar free cleanse for 30 days, but quickly went back to ingesting refined sugar as the cravings were intense. The problem became severe enough that his immune system became suppressed and he was missing work due to extreme fatigue and tiredness.
I had a feeling that his body desperately needs more sugar, but the form of sugar he was ingesting was not serving him. Sure enough, any type of refined sugar, such as coconut sugar or cane sugar, immediately weakened his whole body. It was stealing energy and minerals from his liver, spleen, and pancreas while over stimulating his adrenals. But when I tested him on Vermont maple syrup, his overall energy strengthened incredibly as this source of sugar is concentrated, but minimally processed. We checked dates, raisins, and other dried fruits. They all tested very strong. Then I tested local, raw honey and his body registered potential shock and a chaotic, weak energy. This type of reaction signifies a potential food allergy or sensitivity. Then we tested raw, honey from Crete, Greece and it also tested very strong.
He had no way of knowing that the local, raw honey was wreaking havoc on his body, but a quick muscle test was able to identify the substance as non-compatible for his specific constitution. It doesn’t matter how many studies and articles promote health benefits of local raw, honey. His individual response was different than expected and showed that what is beneficial to one person may not be for another. So why did he have a negative response? Well that question is much harder to answer. I can speculate but would need additional information to give a reliable interpretation.
What I loved most about this particular demonstration is that he was able to feel exactly how the individual substances were affecting his overall energy. This experience opened his eyes to how much damage his sugar addiction was causing. And it gave him the strength and determination to significantly reduce refined sugar consumption while increasing his consumption of concentrated, but minimally processed natural sugar. He’s not depriving his body of all sources of sugar, including fruits, to attempt to get over his sugar cravings. Instead, he’s embracing the right form of sugar that is properly fueling his body and will give him energy in such a way that will boost his immune system and allow him to work as he desires.
