So, we had already seen a bit of an improvement in Ellie’s symptoms from changing her diet, but we needed to know exactly what was bothering her. I personally had suffered with episodes of tummy pain in the past (we’re talking 2001 here) and it got sorted out with a practice called Kinesiology.
Kinesi-what?! It’s one of those ‘alternative therapies’ that you need to have an open mind about. We weren’t even sure if it could be done with two year old… but, it turns out you can!
We visited a practitioner who lived not too far away who saw myself, my Mum and Ellie. Now, this next bit may sound a little mumbo-jumbo to some of you, and to be honest, we weren’t really sure of it ourselves, but we gave it a go.
This is what happened….
Ellie (two years old) sat on my mum’s lap whilst I lay on the bed. The practitioner did something with my ‘Meridians’ and cleared them and I then held Ellie’s hand so she was now working with Ellie’s body. I know, I know, this all sounds very weird!
I then had little samples of different products placed on my chest and I had to push with my arm against the practitioners arm. I didn’t know what she was putting on and when, but there were occasions when I couldn’t lift my arm at all! Can you guess what I (Ellie) was weak against? Wheat, Dairy and slightly against a few other things like potato, beef and even tomatoes. OMG… ketchup!!
This certainly helped us to pinpoint what was troubling our little girl and encouraged us to stick with the diet. We tried a few more forms of testing such as The York Test which also confirmed similar foods.
Its been nine years since we did that test but today, I looked up the details of the same Kinesiologist.
I’ve had this niggling feeling lately that something isn’t right…. some weird eye movements, stuttering, not following simple instructions… it might be nothing… but my gut (no pun intended) is telling me to follow this up.
Until next time…
