Over the years, my many client neuromuscularbiofeedback sessions have provided information that has helped clients to implement ‘stop, start and change’ strategies; ultimately resulting in improved health. After clients sessions I provide followup emails to clients with research based information links that back up many of their ‘weak list‘ challenges. Weak challenges are often the result of the body’s inability to effectively detoxify certain substances, even natural substances. Weak challenges can also indicate allergies, harmful or toxic substances. Sometimes the items on the weak list indicate a challenge resulting from combining a food item with a medication (e.g. grapefruit).
If you have any type of health challenges, including allergies and gastrointestinal distress, proceed with caution before following the latest health trends. Investigate before you proceed. Adding suspect items may add challenges that could interfer with the body’s natural and necessary communication, function, immunosurveillance and immunoresponse. Adding multiple items on a daily basis increases these health challenges.
Examples of substances clients are commonly weak to:
Rice, coconut water and milk, almonds and pork are items on many client weak lists:

Weakness to green tea: Green tea is often on my client’s weak lists despite the fact that is found to have many health benefits. My thoughts are that in the case of my clients, who usually come to me with major health challenges, is that it possibly challenges their liver’s already challenged detoxification pathways.
“Hepatotoxicity, is when too many herbs or supplements—everything from Tylenol to green tea—chemically induce liver damage. This particular type, herbal hepatotoxicity, can happen when we take too much of an herbal supplement or even down too many cups of herbal a day.” https://www.shape.com/healthy-eating/healthy-drinks/too-much-green-tea-or-matcha-could-lead-liver-damage
Weakness to the air pollution: Harmful substances inhaled at home, in the work place and outdoors require efficient detoxification. Even then they can add to your daily list of health challenges.

How do you know what to avoid?
A weak list assessment is a valuable tool to provide you with a ‘weak list’ of foods and other items that your body is unable to tolerate (possibly detoxify).
Muscle response testing for health protection will help you to avoid foods and other substances that your body is unable to tolerate.
