How Muscle Testing Takes The Guesswork Out Of Your Health

Ever wish you had a way to know EXACTLY what your body needs?  Do you feel confused about which healing diet would be best for you?  Ever wonder if the supplements you take are actually helpful?  Wish you knew what foods are best for you or your kids?  

Well, let me introduce you to the absolute best tool I have in my toolbox.  


Simply put, muscle testing (also known as applied kinesiology) is the quickest way to get clear answers from your body.  There is so much confusion and conflicting science in alternative health, and muscle testing is the best way to get clear on what your body needs.

Before I explain muscle testing, it’s important for you to understand the subconscious mind.

Understanding Your Subconscious Mind

When explaining muscle testing and the subconscious to my new clients, I like to use the metaphor of a computer.  Your subconscious is like a big super-computer that has recorded every word you’ve ever spoken, every face you’ve ever seen, every illness you’ve had, every thought that has crossed your mind, every emotion you’ve felt.  

Your subconscious is responsible for 90% of your bodily functions –  your heart beating, your eyes blinking, your nails growing, your food digesting, and so on.  It’s also important to understand that the subconscious mind has a strong influence on the things we do, the emotions we feel, and the actions we take in our every day lives.  Hidden in the subconscious are our emotional triggers that can keep us stuck in cycles of ill health, stress, anxiety, depression, and so on.  Like a powerful computer, your subconscious mind is capable of recording and processing a lifetime of information.

In addition, your subconscious also knows exactly what your body needs to heal. 

Let that sink in for a minute.

Your subconscious, your spirit, your higher self, knows EXACTLY what you need. 


How Many Questions Do You Have Regarding Your Health? 

Here are few questions I wondered about before I learned how to muscle test...

Should I eat vegan? 

Should I eat paleo? 

Do I need this supplement? 

Am I deficient in magnesium? 

Would it be better for me to run or do yoga? 

How much sleep is best for my body? 

How much water do I need to be drinking every day? 

I feel a cold coming on, what vitamins should I take to feel better quick? 

Do I have any trapped emotions that are causing my symptoms?

I could go on for a while there, but you get the point.  Muscle testing answers all of these questions.

Muscle Testing Takes The Guess Work Out Of Your Health

Muscle testing was first developed by Dr. George Goodheart in the 1960s as a way to correct misalignments in the spine.  See Applied Kinesiology: A Training Manual and Reference Book of Basic Principles and Practice by Robert Frost, 2002 for more information.  Muscle testing is now widely accepted by doctors, chiropractors, naturopaths, energy medicine practitioners, and other health care workers. 

Your body has an innate wisdom that can guide you to make healthier choices.  You just have to know how to access that wisdom.  

“Muscle testing is a noninvasive tool we can use to identify imbalances in the body. The science behind it is similar to a lie detector test or a polygraph. In a polygraph, a person is hooked up to sensitive electrodes and asked certain questions. The person’s answers generate a certain electrical response in the body, which is read and graphed by the machine, showing if the answers are true or false. This is done on a very delicate, minute scale. The muscles of the body are also affected by this electrical state- so we can use them to show this same response, just on a more pronounced, larger scale. Any muscle will become weakened in a state of incongruence or falsehood, making resistance difficult. Conversely, muscles will remain strong and able to resist when in a state of congruency or truth. What’s nice is that muscle testing allows us to access important information about health, we just have to know what questions to ask, then apply the resistance to a muscle and get our answers!” –Dr. Bradley Nelson, The Emotion Code


Once you learn how to muscle test, you won't believe how you ever lived without it.  It's the quickest way to tune into your higher self and get clear answers about almost anything.  Anyone can have access to these answers, you just have to learn how to do it.

Simple {and healthy} Meal Plans for Busy Families

A Pinterest board of 700+ recipes to try, 25+ cookbooks on the shelf, all coupled with loads of dietary dogma everywhere you look can make it stressful to know what to cook for dinner tonight.

Food is to be celebrated, not a source of stress!

I adore food, but I don’t particularly enjoy cooking it.  I’m a work at home Mom with 3 kids, and I don’t have time to mess with long and complicated recipes at 5pm.  I want everyone to be fed healthy, simple, and yummy meals.

I find that my children and I thrive on simplicity around meal time.  They like to know what to expect, and so do I.  I have developed this meal rotation plan to keep dinners simple, so I can focus on more important things.

Each night has a similar theme.  Within each theme, you can pick/choose what meal to prepare.  Like anything, take what works for you and tweak the things that don’t. 

Each night has a theme, and each night has 2 meal options.  That way, you have two weeks of meals and won't get bored with the same thing every week

Sunday – Comfort meal

Option 1: Soup and bread.  Alternate between different soup recipes your family likes.  We love a simple veggie soup, black bean soup, or split pea.

Option 2: Chili and cornbread.  We love the chili recipe from Nourishing Meals.

Tuesday – Stir Fry night

Option 1: Asian stir fry.  Cook up some brown rice.  Sautee some vegetables (we do peas, carrots, endamame, onions, broccoli, chickpeas).  Add in some Braggs Aminos to taste.

Option 2: Cook up brown rice or quinioa.  Sautee some veggies (sweet potatoes chopped up small, broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, carrots, onions, kidney beans, ).  Top the veggies over the rice or quinoa, and top with a simple sauce (olive oil, garlic, lemon, Bragg seasoning) and avocado.

Thursday – Leftovers night

Option 1: Use up any leftovers you have and everyone can pick/choose what they want.

Option 2: Kids choice.  I find that older children (7 years+) can have a lot of independence in the kitchen, if they are given some space.  Let them know they can pick out and help cook the meal for that night.  If it ends up being macaroni and cheese, that’s ok!  Instilling a sense of purpose and confidence in your children, is much more important than a perfectly healthy meal.  You are teaching them skills for a lifetime.  Celebrate what they come up with and have fun!

Saturday – Out

I love to eat out, and there are several options for healthier choices.  We love Chipotle, Sticks, Panera, and local restaurants like Blue Mountain and Citizen Burger.  I crave taking a break from cooking, the kids love going out.  We look forward to it all week.

Monday – Italian night

Option 1: Pasta.  Sautee onion, seasonal veggies (right now its squash, carrots, peppers), and frozen spinach.  Add sauce, heat through.  Cook some brown rice pasta (our favorite is the TruRoots pasta).

Option 2: Lasagna, or your other favorite Italian dish.  Lasagna doesn't have to be as complicated as it seems.  Make your sauce the same you would for pasta, cook lasagna noodles, and layer.  You can add in some mozzarella cheese in the layers, if desired.  

Wednesday – Southwest night

Option 1: Rice and bean bowls.  Rice, black beans, tomato, avocado, chips, cheese (optional), and the incredible vegan nacho sauce from the Peas and Thank You cookbook.

Option 2: Burritos.  Layer refried beans and goat cheddar into a sprouted spelt tortilla.  Cook on both sides until warm and golden brown.  Top with avocado and salsa.

Friday – Family movie night

Option 1: Pizza.  Use your favorite crust recipe (ours is this one from 100 Days of Real Food, we use spelt flour), chop some veggies, and let the kids decorate the pizza.  Serve with simple salad or fruit, if desired.

Option 2: Burgers and fries.  We buy a local veggie burger (No Bull Burger), and top it with avocado, lettuce, tomato, etc.  I will cut up potatoes (we switch between sweet potatoes and red potatoes) during the day and roast them at dinner time. 


These meal rotations are ideal for busy school nights, when there isn't a lot of time to plan or prepare food.  

More simple breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack ideas can be found in the Transforming Your Relationship with Food course.

Do you meal plan?  What are your favorite repeat meals?  Let me know if you try out the rotation, and how you like it!
