Undoubtedly many of you have at times been surprised when testing foods in a Touch for Health class or lecture-demonstration. For example, instead of parsley strengthening a weak Pectoralis major sternal muscle test it weakened the muscle further. Yet the same parsley may have had a strengthening affect on other people. What you inadvertently uncovered was a person who could not tolerate, or was allergic to, parsley. Touch for Health can be a valuable tool for reveal ing allergies but it can do Iittle, apart from improving adrenal function and increasing general body resis- tance, in overcoming allergies to specific foods. Today I shall present you with information on Biokinesiology, a school of Appl ied Kinesiology that is very effective in overcoming allergies.
