What is Kinesiology? A Specialized Kinesiology Primer (Part 1)

By Amelia Treadgold If you've heard the name but are still asking "What is Kinesiology?" or are perhaps confused by terms such as Applied Kinesiology, Specialized Kinesiology and the like, here is a short primer. Congressman Dan Burton, on December 6th 2006, in an important speech in the House of Representatives about 'Combating Autism' and referring to the need for more funded research into the issue of the use of mercury containing preservatives (such as thimerosal) used in vaccine shots, noted that: "...interventions, such as restricted diet, applied kinesiology and/or chelation therapy - which many families have found to be the best treatments for their children with autism..." Kinesiology as a term has a split personality. It is taught as a University discipline and this form of kinesiology refers to the study of body movement and relates to ergonomics and such. But the form of kinesiology that Dan Burton refers to -- applied kinesiology versions of which are also called specialized kinesiology, or energy kinesiology, or kinesiologic medicine -- is a form of alternative therapy developed and launched initially by Dr. George J. Goodheart, a chiropractor, in 1964. He was inspired by the muscle testing theories proposed by R.W.Lovett back in the 1930's and by subsequent contributions to the theory by Henry and Florence Kendall in the late 1940's. Goodheart formulated the kinesiologic approach to identifying and treating, through manual manipulation, weakened mus...

Jesters – Not Anyone’s Fools

A jester or fool was a type of entertainer and archetype in Medieval Europe, similar to a modern clown or comedian. With their colorful, eccentric outfits and repertoire of juggling, acrobatics and wit, jesters were a favorite of commoners and noblemen alike. Jesters were commonly travelling minstrels and acrobats, performing at village fairs and festivals. Those who were especially lucky or talented would be hired as court jesters, becoming a regular fixture of a noble or royal court. They would perform tricks, sing fables and satirize daily court life in front of the upper class. Court jesters were granted special privileges, and were allowed to speak in a way that other commoners were forbidden to. With this license to offend, court jesters served as a “voice of the people” in a culture with rigid social barriers. A court jester could openly mock and satirize their social betters without consequence, and were often favored by their lords as trusted advisors who could always speak their minds. Queen Elizabeth I is recorded as having scolding her court jester for not being harsh enough on her. A successful jester had to be skilled in both physical acts and possess a quick wit and knack for singing and storytelling. Jester performances were usually a mix of juggling, acrobatics and magic shows combined with fables, songs, jokes and political commentaries. There was no fixed costume for a jester, but costume usually involved loud, motley colours, bells and baubles and a ...

Osteoporosis Treatment

Osteoporosis is a disease that affects the bones. As the bones start loosing their usual density they become weaker & are more likely to break. Studies have shown that every one in two women & every one in four men above the age of 50 tend to break bones due to osteoporosis. It can cause serious complications & appropriate measures must be taken to avoid extreme consequences. There is no exact cure for osteoporosis. The idea of the osteoporosis treatment process is to strengthen the bones in order to protect them. The treatment primarily consists of a combination of drugs and suitable lifestyle changes that help in minimising the rate of bone resorption. Preventive measures include a modification in the general lifestyle factors, doing more muscle-strengthening exercises and ensuring adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D.The medications used for osteoporosis treatment are anti-resorptive agents. Osteoporosis occurs when the rate of resorption in the bones overtakes the rate of bone formation. The anti-resorptive agents intend to inhibit the rate of resorption to put things back to a balanced state. Drugs are the most aggressive way to hinder bone loss. Bisphosphonates are the most commonly seen osteoporosis curing drugs. They decrease the risk of hip, wrist and spine fracture for those who are affected with osteoporosis. The different types of bisphosphonates used are alendronate (Fosamax), ibandronate (Boniva), risedronate (Actonel) & zoledronic ...

Beauty salons Paddington

In case you didn't know, your skin is your body's largest organ, at least by body cell count. Unfortunately, however, it is constantly exposed to a variety of environmental elements such as pollution, dust, sun rays, etc., every day. And such exposure can take a toll on anyone's skin regardless of their genetic or ethnic background. Therefore, in a bid to reduce the occurrence of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, 'crow's feet', acne scars, age spots and other skin disorders, dermatologists have come come up with special skin treatments geared towards protecting the skin from such undesired pigmentation. Here is a quick primer on that. As you may already know, waxing in a beauty salon is a hair removal technique aimed at a making sure that the skin is left silky smooth and bumpless after shaving. Unlike using razors and other temporary hair removal techniques, waxing permanently removes unwanted hair without leaving an unsightly mess behind. In fact, after waxing you will no longer have to worry about razor burns or nursing a sore stubble. Besides, waxing works pretty well with almost all types of hair textures, types, and colors. On that note, scientists and skincare experts have also proven that if hair is waxed oftenly, the roots and follicles weaken with time leading to permanent hair loss or little regrowth with time. This, of course, can be a relief to many of us who abhor shaving on a weekly or daily basis. Furthermore, waxing doesn't just remove hair at the roots; it a...
