Am I really getting it?

Applied Kinesiology is a method of allowing your body to tell you what is good or not good for you. Or what and how much you need or don’t need of something. If you get Herbs & Things weekly emails you know I’ve been practicing, and learning how to use the Applied Kinesiology method, that Rose Cyzrny taught at a lecture at Herbs & Things a few months ago.

I’ve limited my practicing of this method to myself and then one day I took it one stop further, trying it on my old horse Royal. In all actuality, he is helping to teach me. He’s a wise old horse, I believe who had been running wild when we got him from the killer pen 28 years ago. So who better to teach me than a horse that knows what roots and herbs that will help him.

Royal is, Cushingoid, and gets Pergolide suspension every day to keep his Cushings in check. Recently his hair started getting longer again, (a symptom of cushings), but when I give him the full 1 cc dose of Pergolide he gets lethargic and stiff, making it even more difficult for him to get up from laying down. Going on out a limb, I put my hand on his neck, used the applied kinesiology, closed my eyes and asked him to tell me where to adjust the dose to, so that he loses his hair, but does not get stiff. Very specific .8.8 cc’s. I adjusted it to that and his long hair is coming out, without more stiffness or him getting lethargic.

But let me go back a few weeks ago. Using the Applied Kinesiology, I asked him what he needed for his joints…’he then told me’ Nettles, (post below). Then I asked with the Applied Kinesiology if his body wanted White Willow Bark, (a natural aspirin without aspirin side effects), and it said yes. Using the Kinesiology I asked how much of the White Willow he needed…30 drops 2x’s a day. It does make him feel better. Now a few weeks later, he no longer wants the Nettles. With the applied Kinesiology, he lets me know how much and when to give him the Willow Bark, to keep him comfortable ( which is no longer everyday).

A couple weeks ago, I got brave and took it a step farther… Resting my open hand on his neck, closing my eyes I asked him what else he needs to help make him more comfortable with his Cushing’s disease and what I got was….Enzyme 3.

I frowned, what the heck is enzyme 3? That’s out there, but so specific. I thought my mind was just rambling. But Enzyme 3….I never heard of it or knew there was such a thing, because I know nothing about enzymes other than you body needs them.
I figured it couldn’t hurt if I researched and what I found, by skimming the surface of the enzyme world, because it is confusing place, that apparently, Enzyme 3 is in the class 3 enzymes associated with metabolic issues and digestion. Cushing’s is a metabolic disease. Enzymes also help remove drug buildup in the cells so the body can function better. Royal’s been on Pergolide for about 5 years.

Also with Cushings, his body can’t metabolize starches and carbohydrates…he is diabetic. And what enzyme helps diabetics maintain carb levels and digest and use their foods better, but Amylase…..a class 3 enzyme. Hmm he knows more than me I guess, or my spirit guide is guiding us both. Where else would Enzyme 3 come from?

Therefore, I ordered Masterzyme from New Sun, which labels amylase as the first ingredient. I started Royal on it July 2nd 2010. I did applied kinesiology to see how much he wanted, and what I got was ½ teaspoon 2 times a day.

I think one thing I find most intriguing about this, is that when I asked if I should discontinue his Pergolide medicine and just go with herbs, the answer was no. His body needs the Western Medicine Pergolide. So if the enzymes and white willow work along with the Pergolide to make his quality of life better, it is a perfect example of where, Eastern and Western medicines are working together.

I’ll let you know if it works for old Royal and if I did ‘hear’ him correctly
