Editor's Note

In issue 3 we did a story on David Leaf which also pointed out his work on the acclaimed Milan AC Soccer Team with Jean-Pierre Meersseman. In publishing this, we took an editorial gamble hoping that Milan AC would do better with the Medical Coordinator being a Chiropractor who specializes in kinesiology. Last year, the team was not treated with an applied kinesiology approach and finished near the bottom of the standings, saw 3 players undergo disc hernia operations and had many other players finish the season with unresolved injuries. This year there was a 43% reduction on the days lost in training due to injuries and a 70% decrease in the administration of medicine. All this and Milan also won the league championship! (see page 15 for more information) Per Bastholt has also been instrumental in exposing the top tennis players in the world to applied kinesiology by using AK muscle testing as a trainer for the Davis Cup Champion, Sweden and with other players on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour. (see page 20) We are also happy to announce that more associations of applied kine- siology are making the International Journal of Applied Kinesiology and Kinesiologic Medicine an official magazine for their members to read by acquiring group subscriptions. I hope that this does not limit our audience to only applied kinesiologists, but rather help to promote the AK approach and encourage dialogue between the other kine siologies.


A Life of Practice, Success and Research

By his relaxed face and lively demeanor you would not suspect that Dr. Jean-Pierre Meersseman often spends 15 plus hours a day at work and study.
The secret behind Italy's most famous chiropractor and kinesio-logist - among the most respected in the world - is his passion for his work which, along with the humility and love that he extends to his patients, pushes him to never be content with his accomplishments and to keep pressing ahead on the research path to improve therapeutic techniques.

Research conducted at the University of Michigan involved two sets of planaria (earthworms). 58 Set A received an electric shock and light stimulus at feeding time while set B received no such stimulus. Both groups were sacrificed and fed to two other sets of non-conditioned planaria. Set AA were fed the light stimulus and electric shock conditioned set A earthworms while set BB were fed the non-conditioned set B group. When an electric shock and light stimulus were applied to the set AA and BB groups statistically significant numbers of set AA responded and moved toward the food site whereas the set BB group (the group who had eaten the non-conditioned planaria) had no such response.

Foci and Field Disturbances: Definition and Improved Testing with Applied Kinesiology
by H. Garten, diplomate ICAK Translation: Jeff Farkas, diplomate ICAK

We owe our awareness about field disturbances or foci, as well as their significance, to neural therapy as per Huneke (Dosch 1980, Badtke 1994, et al.). The empirical phenomena of treating foci with local anaesthetics has resulted in expanded research on the topic, particularly in Vienna (Pischinger 1975, Kellner 1963, 1965, Bergsmann 1994, et al.).
The focal disturbance as a causal factor is as important a finding in AK as in other forms of energetic and cybernetic diagnostic and therapy systems:

  • the focus must be recognized as a possible factor in the development of muscle weakness
  • muscle testing can be used to discover foci as well as differentiate their nature
This offers a vast improvement, in terms of efficiency and exactness, over the current neural therapy standard of performing trial injections of scars and other possible disturbances.

Applied Kinesiology Helping Children with Learning Disabilities
Mark O Mathews BSc (Hons) DO MRO & Elizabeth Thomas BSc (Hons) PGCE Dip Ed Psych with assistance from Lise Court DO MRO

This was a study of a group of 10 children all experiencing learning difficulties and how they responded to Applied Kinesiology (A-K) treatment. Treatment involved a patient/therapist contact time of 3 to 4 hours spread over 9 to 12 sessions over a period of 6-12 months. The children were tested before and after treatment by an Educational Psychologist using standardised tests of intelligence to monitor changes in their learning skills. Parents and teachers were asked to complete questionnaires before and after treatment regarding other aspects of the children's educational performance. A health profile was also kept based on parental observation. Results were compared with a control group of 10 children matched for age, IQ and social background who had not received any A-K treatment over a similar period.
