Back To The Land Of The Living

The last couple of days have been a complete blur! I have been sick… mainly sinus pressure, allergies, and runny/stuffy nose type stuff. I had a ridiculous headache that made things really difficult to deal with. My husband got home from out of town last night and worked on me for about an hour. I am so grateful for his profession…. He is an applied kinesiologist and uses manual muscle testing to find all of the problems in the body.  The muscle tests tell him what needs to be fixed and how to address the problem. He fixes structural, chemical, and emotional stresses. All of the muscles in the body are associated with organs, glands, and acupuncture meridians as well as joints in the spine and extremities. In my case, in order to fix my sinus problem he had to fix joints in my neck, feet, pelvis, and elbows. It always amazes me how things are so interconnected and how much better I feel after a treatment. When I woke up this morning, I felt different… and throughout the day, I continued to improve. :)

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
