Applied Kinesiology /Muscle Testing ~ My chiropractor taught me the benefits of kinesiology. Since he’s not always there when I’m shopping for products and food, he taught me the ability to muscle test myself to determine whether a product or food was good for my body. The questionable product or food is placed in your left hand palm up and you stretch your arm straight out. Press down on your left arm with your right hand saying this item (describe it) is good for me. If your arm stays and does not move, the food or product is good for you ~ it makes your body strong. If your arm lowers, the food or product is not good for you ~ it makes your body weaker. It works! There are numerous ways to muscle test…Discuss the benefits and methods of muscle testing with your chiropractor.

I have found in my own course of study some very interesting education about the significant, genetically imprinted, differences between men and women. These differences are things that have us do and be a certain way. By understanding them, we can choose to allow these traits to dictate our life, or we can create extraordinary ones! This new education has enhanced my personal wisdom in taking care of my own health while being very productive in the world. Just as important, it has significantly enhanced all of my relationships!
I discovered the PAX programs beginning with Celebrating Men Satisfying Women. It was life changing! So much so that I became a licensed partner with PAX to share this work with my clients and colleagues.

Boycott Factory Farmed Food ~ 607-583-2225 x 221 / www.farmsanctuary.org/learn/factory-farming Did you know Factory farms dominate U.S. food production, employing abusive practices that maximize agribusiness profits at the expense of the environment, our communities, animal welfare, and even our health! What you eat matters to you, the animals, the environment! The power each one of us wields with our food dollars is amazing. 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards ~ 877-427-5783 / www.globalanimalpartnership.org At every meal, we can help move food business in directions that speak to our interests—whether in farmer advocacy, food safety, environmental protection, human health, rural sustainability, or animal welfare. Concern for the treatment of animals in agriculture continues to grow. Surveys conducted across the United States tell us that 95% of Americans say that how farm animals are cared for is important to them and 76% believe that the well-being of farm animals is more important than low meat prices. For those of us who want to support agricultural practices that benefit animals and farmers alike, we can trust in the 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards label. With the conclusion of our exclusive pilot program with Whole Foods Market, chicken, pork, turkey, and beef products sold in their stores now inform consumers how those animals were raised. New partners, including Roots Market, are already offering Step-rated products to their customers and we’re in exciting discussions with other North American retailers, both restaurant companies and grocers, and will soon be reaching out to partners beyond. Learn more about farm animal welfare and how the well-being of animals in agriculture is being prioritized around the world.
By choosing to support higher welfare farmers and ranchers, we can collectively make a significant difference in the lives of billions of animals. Each one of us, in our daily lives, can improve the lives of animals simply by choosing to support those farmers and ranchers who have a commitment to providing higher welfare to the animals they raise. Look for the distinctive 5-Step labels and vote for higher welfare farming at every meal with your food dollars.
