Detoxification, The GAPS Diet and Kinesiology

Toxicity really is the core of modern disease

It is obvious now to most that we are living in a toxic world and exposure to toxins is unavoidable on a daily basis.

Our bodies are equipped to deal with some toxicity via the lymph, liver and kidneys but over time, with increasing and variable sources of chemicals (our food, water, air and soils are all polluted) and the toxic stress that is our modern lives (trauma, emotional pain, EMFs, money worries, being time poor) these organs and detox systems become overloaded and just cannot function optimally.

This then leads to fatigue, pain, disease, mental illness and dysfunction of many kinds. Toxicity really is the core of modern disease!

Your body will let you know when you need help

The signs and symptoms of dis-ease are our body’s way of telling us to slow down and clean up! As we assist our body in the process of detoxification (instead of working against it) we repair, regenerate and function at a greater capacity.

This means more energy, more movement, more cellular and organ health, better sleep, more clarity and more LIFE!

This is the good news.

Minimise your added daily toxin exposure

Our main detox pathways come via our breathe, our bowel, our bladder and our skin. So this means cleaning up our food and water, minimising our added daily toxin exposure in the form of skin care, cleaning products etc, daily whole body movement and deep breathing.

It means facing our stress and taking an honest look at our lifestyles and habits. It means adding in supplements that will make it easier to move the toxicity out and support the organs involved.

See article from GAPS Diet Australia regarding detoxification.

Kinesiology smoothes out the detoxing process

When we detox we often experience many uncomfortable symptoms and these are not just physical. Our cravings, habits and every day go-to’s for comfort, relaxation and pleasure are hidden in our food choices. Coffee, chocolate, starchy carbs, alcohol, salt and sugar are common fixers for our hidden stressors.

When we begin to detox we are required to face these emotional and mental challenges and they are not nice! Fear, anger, frustration and doubts all rise to the surface and can threaten to derail the whole process.

Kinesiology/Kinergetics can assist you in every step of this process. During a balance particular attention is given to both hydration (we are over 70% water) and getting you out of the fight/flight state which underpins your body’s ability to heal.

Past trauma and emotional stress is revealed and balanced (you are detoxing these also!) which often underlies the very inception of your problems.  SEE LINK TO CHRONIC PAIN AND STRESS.

Many other balances are incorporated which reveal your sabotages, unhelpful beliefs and thought patterns, and these are re-programmed to keep you in a positive mindset for your healing journey.

When you are calm, focused and well hydrated your body will work with you to move toward your goals. You can even enjoy the process and celebrate the positive changes.  We cover so much in one session and big shifts in awareness and energy often occur.

Detoxing can be both physically and emotionally tough and Kinesiology supports it beautifully.

Both my husband and I have been seeing Amanda now for almost 10 years – she is very professional and is able to diagnose the real issues quickly. Amanda also has a deep knowledge of the body and knows exactly what type of exercises and rehab to give you. I always feel great improvement once I have seen her and know I am back on the road to recovery. There have been a couple of times where I couldn’t even walk but Amanda really helped me through those difficult times. I would recommend her to anybody.


I have suffered from chronic back spasms ever since i had my second baby. I am happy to say after seeing Amanda and have some Kinesiology my lower back pain diminished very quickly and I am now back to normal and even signing up for the gym. I thoroughly recommend Amanda to all of my friends and family.


I just wanted to say a big thank you for your treatments. I’ve had great results with you as a Physiotherapist & even longer lasting wellness with the combination of all the modalities you practice. I always come away from my treatments feeling amazing. Also after all the years of trying to conceive we are pregnant with our first baby. I believe the balancing we did around conception helped us in a big way. Thank you


Amanda was able to help me see the things contributing to my pain which was more than just physical. This was very surprising and refreshing to me. My job has a lot of inherent stress and I definitely appreciate the tools and process Amanda uses.
