Kinesiology-Touch for Health – Dublin – Spring 2015

Touch for Health Kinesiology  is a system of healing that uses manual bio-feedback to determine what weaknesses or stressors affect the body. It does not treat or diagnose symptoms but acknowledges communication from the body which can help maintain, enhance and improve well-being.

Blending certain body muscles and traditional energy pathway philosophies, Touch for Health uses manual muscle monitoring to evaluate the balance and harmony of the meridians (energy pathways). Such techniques can help improve posture, reduce physical and emotional discomfort and increase well-being.

Touch for Health uses muscle testing to access the body’s response to stimuli – this could be a thought, food, trauma or injury. A balance helps alleviate the reaction to such stressors. This is achieved through a combination of acupressure, touch and dialogue.

The next TFH course will commence in February. To learn Touch for Health Kinesiology, and how it can be applied to everyday home life, contact Anja Ottenheim (emailanja@balancinglife.ie) or read more on her website www.balancinglife.ie

EUROCAM – Sustainable Healthcare 2020

EUROCAM, an alliance of various European Associations representing CAM doctors, Practitioners and Patient Organisations. It has put together a detailed booklet outlining its objectives for the coming six years and in particular the contribution that CAM Therapies can make to sustainable European Healthcare over this period.

The booklet is very well referenced with supporting scientific information. One point it draws attention to is the low level of investment in CAM research in E.U. member states when compared to the levels of investment in Australia, Asia and North America. Read the full report.

Homoeopathy – reducing healthcare costs

One statistic quoted indicates that 77% of the disease burden in Europe is due to five chronic conditions (diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory disorder and mental disorders), which is an enormous burden on the European tax payer apart from the personal burden on the individual citizen and family.

As an example where savings could be made the report states that in the U.K. alone, if 4% of GP’s were to include homoeopathy in their practice the annual saving could amount to, €240 million euro (£190 million pounds). In the troubled economic times that we live policy makers should take note of the potential. Read full report.

CAM Therapies – more cost effective than conventional

Data published in the Netherlands, based on research led by Dr Erik W Baars from the University of Applied Sciences Leiden, shows that patients who attended doctors who recommended CAM therapies in addition to conventional medicine had reduced overall costs slightly in excess of 10% over those who utilised conventional medicine alone.

The mortality rate was no different for either branch. The data was based on information provided by AEGIS, a major health insurance company. In those difficult budgetary times policy makers might find it useful to review this research. Read more.
