What is What is Applied Kinesiology? with Dr. Brandon Bright

In this episode of Sofia Unfiltered, Riley talks to Dr. Brandon Bright, Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist, and Specialist in Herbology, Applied Kinesiology, Neuro Emotional Technique, and Allergy Elimination Technique, among others

Applied Kinesiology: What is it?

Applied kinesiology is a diagnostic system that uses muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body's structural, chemical, and emotional aspects. Practitioners assess muscle strength and weaknesses, which they believe reflect underlying health issues. By identifying these imbalances, they develop personalized treatment plans that may include adjustments, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes. This approach aims to restore the body's natural balance and improve overall health.


Kinesiology vs. Applied Kinesiology

Dr. Bright discusses the distinctions between kinesiology and applied kinesiology, emphasizing how the latter assesses the body's response to stimuli for diagnosing issues. He explains the use of neuro-emotional techniques to identify emotional problems and their connection to physical health, describing how different emotions are linked to specific organs. 

He combines kinesiology, which studies movement and applied kinesiology, which evaluates the body's response to stimuli, to diagnose and treat health issues. Using muscle testing, he identifies structural, nutritional, and emotional factors contributing to a patient's condition.


Dr. Bright’s Methods

Dr. Bright's treatment methods include acupuncture with microcurrents and specific frequencies, neuro-emotional techniques, and functional medicine. He emphasizes addressing the root causes of health issues, whether physical, emotional, or nutritional. His approach often involves clearing emotional blockages linked to physical pain and using targeted herbal treatments to counteract toxins and pathogens. This comprehensive method allows him to treat chronic conditions and optimize overall wellness effectively.

The Link Between Dental Health and Systemic Diseases

According to Dr. Bright, research indicates a significant link between dental health and systemic diseases such as heart disease and cancer, highlighting the negative impact of mercury fillings and root canals. Maintaining proper nitrogen levels is crucial for cardiovascular health, with studies showing that alcohol-based mouthwash can impede this process, increasing the risk of heart issues. Chronic conditions like Crohn's disease, thyroid disorders, and fertility problems often relate to emotional and nutritional imbalances. By combining multiple modalities, this approach aims to provide comprehensive, individualized care beyond the scope of conventional Western medicine.


Addressing Chronic Issues at the Root

Holistic health practices, including applied kinesiology, acupuncture, and functional medicine, offer promising approaches to addressing chronic health issues by targeting root causes. Studies demonstrate the efficacy of acupuncture with microcurrents for treating various ailments, while herbal treatments support detoxification and pathogen elimination. Research highlights a significant link between dental health and systemic diseases such as heart disease and cancer, with mercury fillings and root canals contributing to these conditions.

Additionally, maintaining proper nitrogen levels, crucial for cardiovascular health, can be hindered by alcohol-based mouthwash, increasing heart risks. Chronic conditions like Crohn's disease, thyroid disorders, and fertility problems often stem from emotional and nutritional imbalances. Emphasizing comprehensive, individualized care, holistic medicine aims to reduce reliance on medication by addressing the underlying causes of health issues.
