Kinesiology for Babies - Baby Thrush

Kinesiology is considered to be a complete form of complimentary wellness care.  It uses gentle muscle testing to look for, understand and aid in supporting any imbalance within the body.  

Babies are too little to use their muscles for a muscle response test.  Instead we use a wonderful technique called 'surrogate muscle testing'.  

To use surrogate muscle testing, the parent is in physical contact with the baby and I use the parents muscles to test the muscle responses of the baby. Through this brilliant technique I am able to suggest the imbalances that the baby may be challenged with and can then create your babies individual wellness plan. 

Baby Thrush

Baby Thrush is usually identified by a white coating on the tongue which looks a little like 'cottage cheese' and can't be gently rubbed off easily.  Sometimes there are also white spots in their mouths too. They may not want to feed and also have nappy rash (a red rash on the bottom). Babies can pass oral thrush on through breastfeeding and this can sometimes cause nipple thrush in mothers. 

Baby Thrush is a common and not usually serious type of yeast infection.  It is caused by a yeast or fungus called Candida albicans.  While it is a mild infection, it can be uncomfortable or even painful for your baby. 

These challenges can sometimes seem overwhelming for both the parent and the baby.  Through Kinesiology using the parent as a surrogate, I can discover where the baby is being challenged and then can suggest where their body needs support.

What do sessions involve? 

As I assess the muscles using the surrogate testing technique and the feedback that they provide, I will create an individual wellness plan for your baby which may have the following suggestions: 

  • Food supplements suitable for children

  • Dietary changes including advice on food and chemical sensitivities 

  • Gentle relaxation techniques
