Binge Eating caused by parasites

 
There is an interesting case that outlines how interesting kinesiolgy can be and how it can help to unveil the mystery behind a health disorder.
A lady came in for treatment suffering with binge eating that she did not seem able to control.
Normally this person did not have a problem with will power. So it perplexed her that she did not seem able to withhold her behaviour.
http://bingeeatingtherapy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/barbie01.jpg
 
But now it had been going on for two years and so she sought help through our methods.
Kinesiology is a method of testing the bodies electric reflex points. This is done in various ways however the basic premise is the challenge the body with something and then see how the body adapts.
A similar example would be a polygraph- lie detector test- although ti is not really detecting lies but is detecting physiological stress.
So if a subject is monitored for blood pressure heart rate and skin sweat gland activity that is by measuring skiin electrical skin resistance. As well as say pupil diameter then if the subject is asked questions then the testing on the subjects body will be able to tell when the subject enters into stress.
Likewise with kinesiology the patient is subject to different stimuli and then the electrical patterning is assessed by feeling how the muscle ( which is controlled by the nervous electrical system) responds.
So if the person is allergic to nuts and a homeopathic of nuts is brought in close to the body they the energy field of the nuts is felt by the body and it causes a difference in the rate and strength of contraction of a test muscle.
So to get into the causes of a patients binge eating we test the meridians through kinesiology and then we subject hte patient to a wide range of homeopathic s and see which ones the patient goes week to the most.eo
ON testing this patient it was found that she reacted to sodium. As if she may have a problems processing sodium properly or had a sensitivity to sodium.
However not many other sensitivities showed up in relation to her eating disorder.
Until the test homeopathic of parasites was brought in close to the body. The arm went very weak.
So how can parasites affect our binge eating. Before i explain it was not just parasites- but also the emotion of guilt showed up. Guilt is an emotion that we all experience but how we respond to it depends on our relationship with the guilt emotion. Some people are so weakened by their sense of guilt that it can be a driving factor to create behaviours that then bring up that very emotion. So the emotion is self perpetuating for the disorder.
Now onto the parasites- in order to explain we need to give you some examples in the natural kingdom.
There is a parasite that infects crickets. When the cricket gets this parasite it finds a body of water and jumps in- it drowns and the the parasite leaves the host body because the body of water is important for the life cycle of the parasite.
SO somehow the parasite has hijacked the brain or mind of the cricket.
Another example there are sea snails and when they become infected with a certain parasite their behavior changes. Rather than dwelling in the shadows and under the lower sides of rocks where the birds that eat them cannot see them. They tend to then go up to the light and even get on top of rocks where the birds can see them. The birds then eat the sea snail as the bird is an important part of the life cycle of the parasite.
Again with parasites. There is a type of parasite that infects shrimp. These particular type of shrimp normally live fairly alone. However when they become infected with the parasite they tend to aggregate together in swarms. Also their colour changes so they become a pinkish colour. So then rather than being a hard to spot solitary shrimp they then form swarms of pinkish coloured shrimp that the birds can see easily and then ingest for the benefit of the life cycle fo the parasite.
So yes our brains can be hijacked- many people are aware how candida can make us crave sugars. Somehow they also hijack our brain centres.
So it became apparent with the muscle testing that two three main factors drove this persons binge eating= the desire of the parasites for certain foods that are not really the types of the foods the woman wanted to eat. Also the relationship with guilt and also the sodium imbalance.
SO the treatment then becomes partially a physical treatment where the patients system is adjusted to help it adapt to those emotions and also to help her body adapt and deal with the parasites. Secondly the patient is recommended herbs and medicines to deal with the parasites. To kill and evict them.
Finally to help the person look at their relationship with guilt so that it goes to becoming more empowering.
See below for another article not written by myself about how also bacteria can hijack our brain and motivate us to eat and crave foods that are good for maintaining the right environment for THEIR survival.
So stay tuned for the outcome of this case.
The methods of treatment included chiropractic adjusting of the adaptive responses of the human body. As well as Chinese cupping and pressure pointing.
Kind Regards

Gut Feeling: How Intestinal Bacteria Could Manipulate Your Brain

 

The next time you can’t figure out why you’re suddenly craving a huge slab of ultra-decadent chocolate cake—consider the possibility that it’s not just you doing the craving. New research suggests that the armies of bacteria living in our guts can pull the strings in our brains to get what they want.

We’ve all heard about the bacterial universe within our bodies, but what’s less well known is just how vast this universe is in comparison to the rest of us: bacteria outnumber all of the cells in our body 100 to 1. And just like us, certain bacteria have a taste for certain nutrients, and they’ve developed ways of influencing their hosts to deliver more of their preferred vittles to the dinner table.

“Bacteria within the gut are manipulative,” said Carlo Maley, PhD, director of the UC San Fransisco Centre for Evolution and Cancer and study co-author. “There is a diversity of interests represented in the microbiome, some aligned with our own dietary goals, and others not.”

How this happens is still an unfolding story, but researchers think bacteria release chemical signals that are carried along the vagus nerve —the nervous system superhighway that runs from the digestive system all the way to the base of the brain. These signals may affect our moods and appetites, and influence us to get more of what the bacteria crave into our mouths.

“Our diets have a huge impact on microbial populations in the gut,” Maley said. “It’s a whole ecosystem, and it’s evolving on the time scale of minutes.”

A strain of bacteria found only in the guts of Japanese people, for instance, has evolved to specifically digest sweaweed, a normal part of Japanese diets. In the same way, certain bacteria subsist on fats and sugars in diets more heavily laden with those items.

It’s theorized that if bacteria want more sugar, they use a chemical carrot and stick approach; certain chemicals cause us to feel bad until we ingest the sugar, and others perk up our mood as a reward for delivering the goods.

“Microbes have the capacity to manipulate behavior and mood through altering the neural signals in the vagus nerve, changing taste receptors, producing toxins to make us feel bad, and releasing chemical rewards to make us feel good,” said study co-author Athena Aktipis, PhD.

The good news, the researchers tell us, is that we can influence changes in our gut dwellers through dietary choices.

“Because microbiota are easily manipulatable by prebiotics, probiotics, antibiotics…and dietary changes, altering our microbiota offers a tractable approach to otherwise intractable problems of obesity and unhealthy eating,” the researchers wrote.

There’s a growing base of scientific literature supporting the claim. A few case studies have shown that probiotics can decrease anxiety levels in mice, and last year researchers from UC Los Angeles published results showing that the brains of people ingesting a probiotic for four weeks had less activity in brain areas associated with excessive anxiety. It’s theorized that the probiotic altered the bacterial landscape in the gut, with the effect of changing chemical signals sent to the brain.

This is, of course, just the beginning of a lengthy investigation into the relationship between our intestinal microbiota and the brain, but so far it seems quite plausible that not all of our appetites are our own.

The study was published in the journal BioEssays.

    Terry this is a brilliant insight into such a common and everyday occurance of our bodies and how to work with them that brings great results to complex issues.
    Well done Jenny
