We’re here again with Stefania. You may recall in our first session, we addressed her problems associated with a past physical trauma. Since then we’ve had one other session. So from the first session how do you feel now Stefania Quite well, especially my leg which feels stronger. Stefania sent me a message saying that she went to a wedding yesterday. Why don’t you tell us how it went. For a few years now I haven’t been able to stand for very long, especially in high heeled shoes. Finally yesterday, after an entire day of standing with high heels.
I didn’t have any problems with my right leg. No pain, but while standing, I did feel something, however it was nothing like before. Reassessment of leg muscles which were treated in precedence. Push toward the wall. Good. Good. Good. Tibialis Posterior, resist. It tests weak. Resist toward the wall. Resist. It tests weak. These 3 muscles tested strong by the end of the first treatment. This suggests that, apart from the residual effects of past trauma, an underlying problem exists and it’s allowing the muscle weakness to recur. The 3 muscles now testing weak,.
Posterior, Gracilis, and Sartorius, are all related to the adrenal glands. That is, every muscle has an associated organ or gland and when there is dysfunction of the organ or gland, the associated muscle will test weak. I can verify this by having Stefania touch two points on her abdomen, associated with the adrenal glands, and then retest the muscles. Resist my pressure. Now they test strong Gracilis. Pull. Tests strong. Sartorius. Resist my pressure. Tests strong. This suggests a correlation between the muscle weakness and the adrenal glands. In the initial interview, Stefania told us of her symptoms.
Adrenal Stress treated with Chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology
Sweaty hands and feet, headaches during her period, frequent thirst despite drinking a lot of water, and afternoon drowsiness after eating. Chronic pain at the vertebral level of T12, L1. This too indicates adrenal stress, as the glands are situated at this level. All of these symptoms suggest a condition known as Adrenal Stress Disorder or Hypoadrenia. That is, stress can be emotional, physical or chemical can tax the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands produce hormones. If stress becomes continuous, a person will suffer from various symptoms. So I asked Stefania to write everything she eats and drinks for 3 days.
She eats generally healthy but tends toward refined carbohydrates and sweet things. These foods along with caffeine stress the adrenal glands. Moreover, Stefania has been taking birth control pills since she was 18 years old. This too stresses the central nervous system and subsequently the adrenal glands. MANUAL THERAPY TO ENHANCE ADRENAL GLAND FUNCTION. You may recall, this is the area where Stefania said she has pain. EVALUATION OF PREVIOUSLY WEAK MUSCLES Tests strong. Resist. Resist the pressure. Now it tests strong. By treating the adrenal gland reflexes, we restored strength to these 3 muscles.
So now we’ve finished our therapy and we anticipate good results. It is important now that Stefania takes care of her health in order to maintain the results of the therapy. This means eating healthy and avoiding sweet things, as well as caffeinated beverages. There are also natural substances for improving adrenal function such as vitamin B5, B3, and Magnesium but of course we always test vitamins before recommending them. Very important to remember are the side effects from the birth control pills. Of course it’s up to Stefania to decide whether it is worth continuing to take them.
